Recap

Sooners feast on Husker errors, pull away late

Oklahoma, scoring on five of six Nebraska turnovers, defeated the Huskers 35-10, giving the Sooners a share of the Big 8 title with Nebraska and enabling OU to represent the conference at the Orange Bowl.

It was close throughout the first half, with Oklahoma taking a 7-3 lead into the locker room, but it was the second half of play, particularly the fourth quarter, that spelled doom for NU.

Early in the third period, Nebraska capitalized on a Sooner fumble and Monte Anthony scored from the one to give the Huskers a 10-7 lead. But just as NU capitalized, so did Oklahoma, recovering a Husker fumble late in the third and driving for a touchdown and a 14-10 lead.

Oklahoma sealed its win early in the fourth when Nebraska fumbled a punt at the Husker 13. The Sooners scored three plays later to make it 21-10. Nebraska committed two more turnovers, both resulting in Oklahoma scores, and the Sooners were off to the Orange Bowl with a 35-10 win.
