Recap

Cylones make it two in a row against Huskers

A tough Iowa State team upset Nebraska for the second year in a row behind the running and receiving of running back Dexter Green.

Time and time again ISU converted on third down with screen and draw plays to Green.

Nebraska led 14-7 at the end of the first quarter, but ISU scored two quick touchdowns in the second period to gain the lead they never relinquished.

I.M. Hipp gained over 100 yards for the fourth straight time with 165 yards on 25 carries and three touchdowns. Linebackers Lee Kunz (16 tackles), Jim Wightman (12 tackles), and tackle Rod Horn (13 tackles) led the Nebraska defense.
