Huskers stifle Badgers’ attack in shutout win
Nebraska remained unbeaten and registered its second straight shutout with a convincing 37-0 win over the Wisconsin Badgers, keeping intact Coach Bob Devaney’s mark of never losing to a Big Ten team.
A short plunge by Pete Tatman and a 59-yard TD keeper by Fred Duda got the Huskers fired up in the first half and they added two third-quarter tallies to ice the contest.
Nebraska reserves took over late in the third period and with Charlie Winters and Ben Gregory both scoring and turning in fine running shows.
- A 49-yard Frank Solich run set up Larry Wachholtz’s field goal just before halftime.
- A 55-yard punt return by Wachholtz set up Winters’ third-quarter TD.
- Wisconsin quarterback Chuck Burt was the nation’s third-ranked passer entering the game.
- Nebraska’s first touchdown came after Wisconsin’s Tom Brigham fumbled a punt and NU’s Dennis Carlson recovered on the UW 31.
