Official recap

Nebraska's hopes for a 7-3 season and a bowl bid were smashed by Sooner Steve Owens, who staged a brilliant one-man attack to trigger a 47-0 licking before 45,000 fans and a national TV audience.

It was the worst defeat ever suffered by a Bob Devaney team.

Owens tore the Cornhuskers to shreds, scoring 5 touchdowns for a Big 8 record and netting 172 yards.

Down 28-0 at the half after Owens' three-TD spree in the second quarter, the Huskers fought back and marched to the Sooner three before a fumble killed the scoring chance.
