Official recap

Nebraska's hopes for a successful season appeared dashed to bits midway in the first quarter, but the stunned Cornhuskers held on for a 14-7 win over the Iowa State Cyclones. Junior quarterback star Fred Duda suffered a broken leg early in the contest and was sidelined for the season.

But sophomore Bob Churchich came in cold to engineer a 77-yard drive in the second quarter to put NU ahead to stay, 7-0. A 48-yard drive made it 14-0 in the third quarter before Cyclone Tony Baker broke a 58-yard sprint to wind up the scoring. The Scarlet defense then took over to insure No. 3 and No. 10.
