Recap & links

Scoring records fall in rout of Cyclones

I-back Mike Rozier had another outstanding game, rushing 26 times for 212 yards and four touchdowns as the Huskers crushed the Cyclones, 72-29.
The four TDs gave Rozier 24 for the season (breaking the Big Eight record of 23 by Oklahoma’s Steve Owens in 1969) and 47 in his career (breaking Johnny Rodgers’ 1970-72 Nebraska career marks of 45 touchdowns and 270 points).

The 72 points were the most ever scored by Nebraska against a Big Eight team and the most ever scored by one team in Memorial Stadium, and the 101 points racked up by both squads were the most-ever in Memorial Stadium.
