Defense delivers when needed vs. ’Pokes

Nebraska's Black Shirts locked horns with Oklahoma State's wishbone offense, and the Huskers came out a 7-3 winner before 76,476 in Memorial Stadium.

Thanks to the Husker defensive effort, fullback Tony Davis' four-yard scoring run in the third quarter was all Nebraska needed to win. The Cowboys' only score came with 12:01 left in the game when Abby Daigle booted a 32-yard field goal.

Johnson
NU's defensive hero was cornerback Ardell Johnson. The senior from Chillicothe, Mo., was in on six tackles, but more importantly recovered a Cowboy fumble and broke up a pass to stop two potential OSU scoring drives late in the game. Johnson also blocked an OSU field goal attempt.

Other defensive standouts for Nebraska were linebacker Tom Ruud, 18 total tackles; middle guard John Lee, 11 total tackles; and defensive end Bob Martin, 10 total tackles.

Although the Huskers did a fine defensive job against OSU, Cowboy fullback George Palmer gave the Huskers fits. He gained 120 yards on 27 carries before he was injured in the fourth quarter.
