Wildcats register stunning shutout

Kansas State's underdog Wildcats socked the Cornhuskers early and hung on for a stunning 12-0 upset before 67,466 Homecoming fans.

On their first play, the Wildcats hit the Huskers with a 47-yard pass from Lynn Dickey to Dave Jones, and three plays later they had a 6-0 lead just 2½ minutes into the first quarter.

The Husker offense never got inside the K-State 31, and the Wildcats kicked two fourth-quarter field goals to pad their lead.

K-State's defense kept the Huskers in check throughout the game. The Scarlet attack was held to 78 yards on the ground and only 7 of 28 successful passes.

It was only the second shutout for the Cornhuskers under Coach Bob Devaney.

H'MAX NOTES: It was KSU's first conference win since 1964, the Wildcats' first shutout since 1955 and their first victory over Nebraska since 1959. ... ABC's Beano Cook rated it as college football's biggest upset of 1968. ... The game was played in 30-degree weather. ... Ernie Sigler, Nebraska's starter at quarterback, completed 2 of 18 passes for 20 yards.
