Blackshirts put clamps on ’Clones

The Husker defense held Iowa State to five first downs and 53 yards in total offense as Nebraska recorded its first shutout in two years with a 44-0 win over the Cyclones.

Iowa State’s defense was tough, too, holding Nebraska to just a 10-0 lead midway through the third quarter, but an excellent 45-yard punt into the wind by Scott Livingston followed by a Bill Weber interception set up a 6-yard Doug DuBose touchdown run for a 16-0 lead, then the Huskers scored four touchdowns in the first 6:38 of the fourth quarter to blow the game open.

The NU defense also held ISU’s standout receiver, Tracy Henderson, to two catches for 11 yards.
