Brown was hit by several Huskers and fumbled back into the end zone, where it was recovered for a touchdown by Mike Mandelko, to give NU its 14-0 halftime lead.
The Huskers tallied three more times in the second half to wrap it up - Jeff Quinn's one yard run; Tim McCrady's 22 yard pass from Quinn and a three yard run by Roger Craig.
