Official recap
After spotting the Huskers early leads of 7-0 and 10-7, Florida State ran off 34 unanswered points to build a 41-10 lead at the end of three quarters, then settled in for a 41-17 victory.

The Seminoles destroyed the Huskers with a lightning-quick defense and a passing attack the likes of which Nebraska had not previously seen in its first 100 years of football. Senior quarterback Peter Tom Willis threw for 422 yards on the afternoon, the most passing yards ever against a Nebraska team, as he completed 25 of 40 passes, with no interceptions and five touchdowns.
