Nebraska played in ancient Clyde William Field for the last time as the Huskers provided Iowa State with its own version of a rude welcome, defeating the Cyclones 23-13.
Wild-eyed Cyclone fans and smoke bombs didn't bother the Huskers as NU jumped off to a 10-0 halftime lead. Nebraska's first score came midway through the first quarter when freshman I-back Monte Anthony swept over left tackle for three yards and six points.
Anthony again scored on Nebraska's first possession in the second half as he ran up the middle for seven yards to give the Huskers a 16-0 lead.
Nebraska's last score came on a 42-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dave Humm to I-back John O'Leary with 4:30 left in the third stanza. Al Eveland's point-after attempt was good, and Nebraska was done scoring for the day.
Iowa State scored twice in the fourth period against Nebraska substitutes, but the 23-13 victory was sweet revenge for the Huskers.
So it was bon voyage to Clyde Williams Field as the Huskers returned home for its final two games against Kansas State and No. 1 ranked Oklahoma.
