Official recap
For the first time ever, Oklahoma State (4-0) came into the Nebraska game with a better record than the 3-1 Huskers, while UPI had the eighth-ranked Cowboys one notch ahead of NU (it was the opposite in the AP poll). And for three quarters it looked like OSU might win for the first time in 23 years.

OSU carried a 3-0 lead into the final period before Nebraska finally tied with a Dale Klein field goal with 13:05 left, and it took a dazzling, 49-yard punt-return touchdown from Shane Swanson to finally get the Huskers over the hump and on their way to a hard-fought 17-3 win.
