Blackshirts throttle Cowboys
Defense was the name of the game as Nebraska won its fourth game of the season, 13-3, over the Oklahoma State Cowboys before 66,421 fans.
The Husker defensive platoon held the Cowboys to 43 yards on the ground and 78 through the air for a measly 121-yard total. Meanwhile, the Scarlet offense, while muffing a couple of scoring chances, piled up 397 yards.
Nebraska took a 7-0 lead in the second quarter and the Huskers were never headed. A 47-yard pass from Jerry Tagge to Guy Ingles, who made a sensational catch, ignited the Huskers. Six plays later, the 80-yard drive ended with Tagge’s two-yard smash for the TD with 1:29 left in the half.
Ewe Preuss kicked a 40-yard field goal to get the Cowboys on the board in the third quarter, but Van Brownson came in to skipper the Huskers 58 yards for the clinching touchdown. Brownson tossed a 47-yard scoring bomb to Ingles with 14 seconds left in the third quarter.
