Stephenson picks off 3 passes in Husker victory

Dana Stephenson set a Nebraska school record by swiping three Colorado passes, setting up two Nebraska scores, as the Cornhuskers whacked the Buffaloes, 20-7.

Colorado jumped to a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Huskers answered with Paul Rogers’ 40-yard field goal to cut the gap to 7-3.

Late in the second quarter, Stephenson made his first interception and the Huskers drove 61 yards to go ahead, 10-7. Jeff Kinney tallied from the four with 35 seconds left in the half.

Shortly after the third quarter started, Dana made his second interception at the CU 32. In three plays, Nebraska had a 17-7 lead as Van Brownson fired a 27-yard TD pass to fullback Dan Schneiss.

A Buff fumble five plays later got Nebraska rolling again, with Rogers kicking a 32-yard field goal. It was Rogers’ ninth career field goal, a new Husker record.

Nebraska’s defense held Colorado star Bob Anderson in check for the third straight year. The Buff record-breaker was held to 42 yards rushing. Linebacker Jerry Murtaugh led the Huskers with 18 tackles, eight of them unassisted.
