Official recap
Smarting from two straight Big 8 defeats, Nebraska stormed to a 29-0 win over Texas Christian before a disappointing crowd of 18,529.

Nebraska scored twice in the first quarter to launch the rout, taking a lesson from Colorado and capitalizing on a fumble and an interception. Frank Patrick passed five yards to Dennis Richnafsky for the first tally with 8:08 left in the first quarter after the Huskers recovered a Frog fumble at the 19. On the third play after the kickoff, linebacker Ken Geddes grabbed a TCU pass and on the next play Patrick fired a 21-yard strike to Dick Davis.

Bill Bomberger kicked a third-quarter field goal before the Huskers tallied twice in the final period. Geddes picked off another Frog pass and ran 39 yards to score. In the last quarter, Al Fierro passed a 46-yard TD bomb to Buster Yannon as the reserves wound up the action.
