Official recap

Oklahoma's powerful Sooners, playing near-perfect football, ruined Nebraska's hopes for an undefeated season by registering two fourth-quarter TDs for a 17-7 victory. The loss snapped the nation's longest winning streak at 16, but the Cornhuskers gained sole possession of the Big 8 title for the second straight year when Missouri defeated Kansas.

The Cornhuskers wound up 9-1 for the year and 6-1 in the Big 8, nabbing No. 6 in the final AP and UPI polls. Oklahoma drew first blood on a 23-yard field goal by Ralph Metcalf, but the Huskers retaliated with a 56-yard Bob Churchich-to-Freeman White touchdown combo for a 7-3 lead. This held up from midway in the second period until only 6:16 remained in the game.

Then the Sooners staged a 24-play, 88-yard drive to go ahead 10-7 and, after a pass interception, Sooner Larry Brown scooted 48 yards to wrap up the upset with 3:11 left in the game.
