Huskers blow past Cyclones; Sooners up next
Nebraska jumped to a 28-0 first-half lead then coasted to its 10th straight win, a victory that assured the Huskers of their 19th consecutive season with at least nine victories.
The second-ranked Cornhuskers rolled up a season-high 666 total-offense yards, the eighth-highest figure in school history. I-back Keith Jones led the way with 240 rushing yards.
The Husker defense yielded just 212 yards of total offense and didn’t allow a touchdown for the fourth time in the past five games.
With a week off, the Huskers could now focus fully on their Nov. 21 showdown with No. 1 Oklahoma.
