LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska didn't let a few scuffles with Miami spoil the party at Memorial Stadium and the show Ameer Abdullah put on Saturday night.
Abdullah ran 35 times for 229 yards to lead a punishing ground game, and the No. 24 Cornhuskers celebrated the 20th anniversary of their 1994 national championship team with a 41-31 victory.
The Huskers (4-0) will start Big Ten play next week off a performance that drew a record crowd of 91,585 that came to see a meeting of programs that combined for eight national titles from 1983 to 2001.
Miami (2-2) got within three points in the third quarter, but its five personal fouls in the second half helped the Huskers pull away. Only the coaches and team captains shook hands after the game. Fans booed as Miami left the field.
''The game of football is about passion, and I wouldn't want it any other way,'' Abdullah said. ''Good thing we were the bigger men.''
The Hurricanes have lost five straight and 11 of their last 12 on the road against ranked opponents since 2006.
