Cornhuskers avoid letdown against Cyclones

Nebraska made it three in a row with a convincing 36-22 victory over Iowa State in the first Big Eight test of the season. With Dennis Claridge scoring three TDs and passing for another, Nebraska had a 28-0 lead with only 7:49 gone in the second quarter.

The Cyclones – sparked by All American Dave Hoppmann and a fine soph, Tom Vaughn – refused to holler “uncle” and battled for 22 points. But the early NU jump was too much. Nebraska’s first-quarter TDs came on drives of 70 and 80 yards.

H’MAX NOTES: Nebraska scored touchdowns on four of its first five possessions. … Nebraska’s only touchdown of the second half came after tackle Tyrone Robertson blocked an Iowa State quick kick and end Larry Tomlinson recovered the ball on the ISU 18. …

Fullback Bill “Thunder” Thornton left the game in the first quarter with a leg injury, and Dennis Stuewe remained sidelined from his injury at Michigan. … With the victory, NU moved up to 15th in the UPI poll, and the Orange Bowl was reported to be expressing interest in the Huskers.
