Official recapNebraska wound up with a record-breaking home season with a convincing 17-3 victory over Iowa State. A crowd of 67,107 pushed the Husker home attendance mark over the 400,000 mark.
The Cornhuskers unwound early in the second quarter. Van Brownson fired a 69-yard pass to Jim McFarland, who fought off a tackle and rambled to the Cyclone 11. Two plays later Brownson scored to put NU in front to stay, 7-0.
Iowa State registered a 30-yard field goal to set up the 7-3 halftime score.
Jerry Tagge relieved Brownson in the third quarter and marched the Huskers to a 10-3 lead, thanks to Paul Rogers' 25-yard field goal. The next time Nebraska got the ball, Tagge skippered them 56 yards to score again. Tagge hit Mike Green for the TD with 4:54 left in the third quarter.
Nebraska's defense again was superb, constantly putting great pressure on Cyclone QB Obert Tisdale, who lost 86 yards, and holding Iowa State to only 27 yards rushing.
