Official recap
Nebraska scored almost at will against outmanned Minnesota in recording an 84-13 win over the Gophers.

NU rolled up its biggest score ever against an NCAA Division I-A team and its most overall since a 100-0 win over Nebraska Wesleyan in 1917.

It was the worst defeat suffered by Minnesota in 100 years of college football (ironically, Nebraska's worst-ever defeat was a 61-7 loss at the hands of the Gophers in Lincoln in 1945).

The entire 60-man travel squad had played before the end of the third quarter. Irving Fryar broke Johnny Rodgers' Nebraska wingback record for reception yards with 138 on just two catches — 70- and 68-yard touchdowns, the longest receptions of his career, and the longest passes of Turner Gill's career.
