Official recap

Nebraska had difficulty scoring but moved the ball and staged another great defensive show to post win No. 6 and shutout No. 4 by blanking tenacious Oklahoma State, 9-0.

The Cornhuskers rushed for 250 yards and passed for 58 and a 308 total, while holding the Cowboys to 37 yards on the ground and 103 passing.

Nebraska broke the scoreless duel when Frank Patrick passed four yards to Dennis Richnafsky with 2:21 left in the half. Ben Gregory, who was to wind up with 120 yards rushing, got almost 100 of them in the second half after Joe Orduna had scampered for 60 in the first half. But the Huskers couldn't dent the Cowboys for a TD. Bill Bomberger supplied the clincher with a 29-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.
