Huskers slog past Cyclones
Nebraska played in ancient Clyde Williams Field for the last time as the Huskers provided Iowa State its own version of a rude welcome, defeating the Cyclones 23-13 on a muddy field. After the game, the Huskers accepted an invitation to play Florida in the Sugar Bowl.
Wild-eyed Cyclone fans and smoke bombs didn’t bother the Huskers as NU jumped off to a 10-0 halftime lead. Nebraska’s first score came midway through the first quarter when freshman I-back Monte Anthony swept over left tackle for three yards and six points.
Anthony again scored on Nebraska’s first possession in the second half as he ran up the middle for seven yards to give the Huskers a 16-0 lead.
Nebraska’s last score came on a 42-yard pass from quarterback Dave Humm to I-back John O’Leary with 4:30 left in the third stanza.
Iowa State scored twice in the fourth period, and it was farewell to Clyde Williams Field as the Huskers returned home for their final two games against Kansas State and No. 1 ranked Oklahoma.
