Official recap
Nebraska fumbled four times and lost three in the first half and led stubborn Wyoming by just 14-7 at halftime, but righted itself with three third-quarter touchdowns and went on to down the Cowboys, 42-7.

New starters Jeff Smith at I-back and Tom Rathman at fullback paced a 440-yard Nebraska rushing attack, Smith picking up 170 (the second-best opening-game performance at Nebraska in the Bob Devaney-Tom Osborne era), Rathman gaining 108 (the most for a Husker fullback since Andra Franklin's 122 vs. Oklahoma in 1980).
