Official recap

Pepped by an 89-yard kickoff return touchdown sprint by fullback Frank Solich, the Nebraska Cornhuskers clinched a share of the Big 8 title by thumping Oklahoma State, 27-14, before a record crowd of 49,013 - largest crowd ever to witness any event in the state of Nebraska.

It was the Huskers' 9th straight win of the season and their 16th in succession. After forcing a punt early in the first quarter, the Scarlets marched 92 yards to score in 19 plays. Then, the Cowboys took the kickoff and punched out a 12-play, 67-yard drive to knot it at 7-7.

Solich quickly changed the complexion of the game by roaring straight up the middle - aided by fine blocking, including two wipe-outs by Kent McCloughan - on the kickoff to post an 89-yard TD. Nebraska never trailed again, and a 34-yard Bob Churchich to Harry Wilson TD pass gave NU a 21-7 halftime bulge.
