Strong second half pulls Huskers past Cyclones

Nebraska recovered from a stunning 70-yard TD run off a fake punt by Cyclone Dave Hoover with about five minutes left in the first half to defeat Iowa State, 21-7.

It took a pair of second half tallies — one via an 84-yard march, the other set up by a pass interception and a 36-yard run by Kent McCloughan — to chalk up victory No. 3. Some fine defense — Iowa State netted only 42 yards the second half — peppped the Huskers.

H’MAX NOTES: The Cornhuskers’ score in the first quarter came after Dick Callahan recovered a fumble on the Iowa State 10. “Except for that thrust,” UPI reported, “the Nebraskans were outplayed the first two periods.”
