Agony in Ames: Cyclones deal stunning blow
After two emotionally high games, the Huskers traveled to Ames, Iowa ranked No. 7 in AP and No. 5 by CNN/ USA Today and No. 1 in the Conference at 4-0.
The Cyclones had the emotional edge, however, and were in control of the game from the start and upset the Huskers 19-10. The Cyclones were aided by four Ty Stewart field goals and controlled the ball for 37:15.
Although the Huskers did not commit a turnover for the fifth straight game, Nebraska was held to just 192 yards rushing and 246 total.
Senior quarterback Marv Seiler, making his first start for ISU, burned the Husker defense for 144 rushing yards.
Quarterback Tommie Frazier was NU’s leading rusher with 92 yards and completed a 15-yard pass to Lance Lewis for the only Husker touchdown.
The loss put Colorado and Kansas back in the hunt for the conference title and dropped the Huskers to No. 12 in the polls.
