Tom Banderas TD
Official recap
For the second time in 1987, Nebraska passed for a school-record five touchdowns, four by Steve Taylor, one by Clete Blakeman, as the Huskers beat back an improved Missouri team.

Taylor and Blakeman combined to tie the school's team touchdown pass mark set vs. UCLA, with Tom Banderas catching three of the scoring passes to tie another Nebraska record. Mizzou's second-period touchdown was the first against the Husker defense in 15 quarters. Nebraska scored in every quarter for the fourth-straight game.
