Huskers shut down Aggies

Nebraska scored twice in the first half for a 14-0 lead, then the Black Shirts took over to shut out the Aggies for the first time in 26 games. The Aggies were held to only 35 yards rushing and 136 yards passing.

Van Brownson and Jerry Tagge each engineered a TD drive for the Huskers. In the first quarter, Brownson drove the Big Red to the A&M 33, where a field goal failed. But on the next play Jimmy Anderson intercepted an Aggie pass and returned it to the 3. Jeff Kinney tore up the middle for a TD with 6:56 left in the first quarter.

After Brownson twisted his ankle and in the second quarter, Tagge moved the Huskers 93 yards to score the clincher. Tagge plunged the final one yard with 2:54 left in the half.

Nebraska tried two other unsuccessful field goals in the defensive struggle that remained. The Aggies’ most serious touchdown threat ended with a fumble after a drive from the A&M 30 to the NU 5.
