Official recap
South Carolina scored twice within four minutes to take a 21-13 lead in the third quarter, but the Gamecocks netted only 9 offensive yards after that and second-ranked Nebraska rallied to post a 30-21 win.

The rally started with an 18-play, 96-yard, 9:01 drive in which quarterback Steve Taylor was lost to a shoulder injury. The go-ahead touchdown was set up by a Gamecock fumble, then Mark Blazek's late interception set up the clinching field goal.

Keith Jones rushed for 129 yards and was named Big Eight offensive player-of-the-week.
