Fast-starting Huskers stifle Cowboys’ attack

Nebraska completely dominated action as the Cornhuskers ran their record to 8-1 to set the stage for the Big Eight title showdown against Oklahoma with a 14-0 win over Oklahoma State.

thornton (2K)A muddy field, fumbles and penalties hampered several NU scoring thrusts after the Huskers jumped out 14-0 in the first quarter, scoring on drives of 76 and 62 yards on their first two possessions. Nebraska’s total offense was 397 yards, and the Scarlet defense held OSU to 127 — and the Cowboys only once invaded Nebraska territory. It was the first NU win over O-State in three tries.

H’MAX NOTES: OSU quarterback Mike Miller entered the game as the Big Eight’s leader in passing yardage (867 through seven games), but he managed just 31 aerial yards against the Cornhuskers. … NU came up empty on four possessions that penetrated the OSU 15 yard line. … The 1920, ’21 and ’22 teams were honored at the game.
