Official recap
"Game of the Century II" turned out to be less than memorable for Nebraska, which had moved ahead of Oklahoma into the No. 1 spot in the polls during the week of the game.

After the Huskers jumped to a 7-0 first-quarter lead when Keith Jones' 25-yard run capped an 84-yard drive, the game was virtually all Oklahoma as the second-ranked Sooners came from behind to claim their fourth-straight Big Eight title and reclaim the No. 1 ranking.
