Huskers Punch Ticket to Indy: Nebraska used a stifling defense and a punishing running game to down Iowa and clinch a spot in the Big Ten title game in Indianapolis.
   NU's seniors shined, as Alonzo Whaley and Eric Martin had career afternoons on defense. I-back Rex Burkhead made his return in the second half after missing the last four games, rushing for 69 yards and scoring the winning TD.
   For the fifth time this season, Nebraska rallied from a second-half deficit to win.

In some ways it reminded me of Nebraska’s 13-3 win at Oklahoma in 1994 against a 6-6 Sooner squad.”
