Nebraska's special teams key early lead

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Alex Henery has helped spark the Cornhuskers to an early 6-0 lead after one quarter of the Big 12 championship game.

It hasn't been pretty. Colt McCoy's Heisman hopes have taken a hit as he has thrown two interceptions and the Texas offense has sputtered.

Henery has drilled field goals of 45 and 52 yards to account for all of the scoring. The 52-yarder is the longest in the history of the Big 12's conference championship game.

He also pinned Texas at the Longhorns 10 to start their last possession. After one first down, the Cornhuskers got the ball back on a third-down stop.
