Recap
Dale Klein's 7th FGDale Klein connects on his seventh field goal of the day.

7-for-7 Klein gives Tigers’ upset chances the boot

Junior place-kicker Dale Klein tied an NCAA record by kicking seven field goals to lead Nebraska to a 28-20 win over winless Missouri.

Klein became the first kicker ever to go seven-for-seven kicking field goals in one game as he was successful on attempts of 32, 22, 43, 44, 29, 43 and 43 yards. He added a PAT for a Big Eight-record 22 points by kicking and ran his school-record string to nine consecutive field goals made.

Almost lost in Klein’s outburst was I-back Doug DuBose’s career-high 199 rushing yards.

Nebraska’s passing game, so efficient the previous week against Oklahoma State, took a step backward as Husker quarterbacks completed just three of 15 passes and tossed two interceptions.
