Official recap
It was no contest as the powerful Nebraska Cornhuskers opened the 1963 season by defeating undermanned South Dakota State, 58-7.

Nebraska led, 37-0, at halftime and piled up a 58-0 margin before the Jackrabbits tallied late in the game. South Dakota State didn't earn its initial first down until the third quarter.

H'MAX NOTES: The visitors had minus-22 net yards in the first half and didn't get a first down until the third quarter. ... The game was played in a light drizzle. ... The SDSU score came on a 49-yard drive against the Husker reserves. ... The score would have been even more lopsided if SDSU hadn't stopped three NU drives near the goal in the first half. ... It was Nebraska’s highest point total since 1927.
