Official recap

Harry Wilson's tremendous 36-yard burst through the Iowa State Cyclones saved Nebraska from an onrushing tie-just 3:45 before the final gun-and gave the Huskers a 12-6 win for No. 3 before a record crowd of 28,000.

Penalties, three lost fumbles and the aggressive Cyclones had blunted all Husker scoring thrusts after Larry Wachholtz kicked two first-quarter field goals.

Iowa State tied it in the second quarter when Don Graves picked off a Bob Churchich pass and raced 16 yards to score.

Carel Stith's fumble recovery at the ISU 46 late in the fourth quarter gave Nebraska a chance for victory. A 10-yard Churchich-to-Dennis Richnafsky pass and a key fourth down plunge by Paul Critchlow gave the Huskers a first down at the 36.

Wilson then shot through le,ft tackle, got hit three times-he shook off two and broke the third tackle-before ripping into the clear for the winning TD.

While the score was close, Nebraska out-rushed ISU by 229-77 and had a total offense bulge of 432-191.
