LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Stanley Jean-Baptiste and Ciante Evans returned first-quarter interceptions for touchdowns and No. 22 Nebraska made quick work of Southern Mississippi in a 56-13 victory on Saturday night.
 
Taylor Martinez threw for three touchdowns and Ameer Abdullah ran for two more for the Cornhuskers (2-0), who now turn their attention to next week’s home game against No. 18 UCLA.
 
Jean-Baptiste jumped in front of Rickey Bradley Jr. just as Allan Bridgford’s pass arrived on the third play of the game and ran it back 43 yards.
 
Evans put the Huskers up 21-3 with the first of his two interceptions, catching a ball tipped by Tyre’oune Holmes and going 22 yards to the end zone.
 
It was a solid rebound for a Nebraska defense that surrendered 602 yards in a 37-34 win over Wyoming last week.
 
The Golden Eagles (0-2) lost their 14th straight, the longest losing streak in the FBS.
