Nebraska’s six-man all-stars evened their series with Wyoming at five games apiece after winning the Six-man Shootout 48-14 Friday in Chadron, Nebraska.
Nebraska has won the last two contests it has played with Wyoming in the series, which started in 2012.
The only bit of drama in the game didn’t last long.

After recovering an onside kick, Wyoming was in position to make it a one-score game but couldn’t generate a first down on the subsequent drive. Nebraska scored on its next drive to again make the lead 20 points, 34-14.
In the fourth quarter, Wyoming had two turnovers plus a turnover on downs and Nebraska scored twice to make it 48-14.
The Cornhusker State players started fast and took a 14-0 lead early. Clawson scored on a short run with 51 seconds left in the first quarter to cut the lead to 14-8.
Two more Nebraska touchdowns in the second quarter pushed the lead to 28-8 by halftime.
Team Wyoming had 18 players from eight different six-man schools.
