Official recap
Nebraska made its second Orange Bowl trip a happier one than the first with a 13-7 win over Auburn in the 1964 Miami Classic. The Huskers evened their bowl record with the win and handed Bob Devaney his second bowl win in as many tries.

Dennis Claridge 68yd TD Husker quarterback Dennis Claridge broke the game open before most of the fans had settled in their seats. Aided by a Bob Brown block, Claridge bolted 68 yards down the sideline to put NU ahead 7-0 on the Huskers' second play from scrimmage. At the time, it was the longest TD run in OB history. Moments later, Dave Theisen broke another OB record with a 31-yard field goal. The record lasted until the second quarter when Theisen booted a 36-yarder to give NU a 13-0 halftime lead.

Auburn quarterback Jimmy Sidle almost brought the Tigers back, but Husker linebackers John Kirby and Bruce Smith broke up a fourth-and-four pass away at the goal line with less than two minutes to go to preserve the win.
