Pitt on offense vs. Nebraska
Nov. 17, 1928
A day after Coach E.E. Bearg had the Huskers scrimmage for three hours in place of the customary light workout, Pittsburgh pulled an upset by holding Nebraska to a 0-0 tie on a muddy field in Lincoln.
The Cornhuskers failed to gain a first down all game long and missed a golden opportunity in the first half when a Pittsburgh punt into the wind went for minus-five yards. A Husker fell on the ball at the Pitt 20-yard line instead of letting it roll dead, and the ball squirted free and Pittsburgh recovered.
