Cadets shoot blanks against Husker defense
Nebraska took a while to get warmed up but had little trouble defeating Army, 28-0, before 66,928 fans.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Huskers got on the board with a 43-yard Jerry Tagge to Johnny Rodgers TD pass in the second quarter. Joe Orduna added a two-yard tally in the third quarter before Rodgers took a 26-yard scoring pass from Tagge later in the same period.
The third TD pass of the day saw Woody Cox pull in a 31-yarder from Van Brownson, making his first appearance of the season.
Nebraska’s defense was superb, holding Army to 18 yards rushing and 128 yards via the air.
H’MAX NOTES: Rodgers set up Nebraska’s second touchdown with a 38-yard punt return to Army’s 12-yard line. … Brownson had sat out the first two games with an injured elbow.
