Official recap

The Husker offense, which had sputtered two games before seemed to get untracked again Nebraska easily outdistanced Iowa State 34-3.

The team of Jeff Quinn to tight end Junior Miller was unstoppable as they hooked up six times, two of them for touchdowns of 13 and 19 yards, both in the second quarter. Miller ended the day with 83 yards in receptions and carried the ball 3 times for 22 yards.

Once again the Huskers were without Jarvis Redwine, who was injured on the first series, but I.M. Hipp and Craig Johnson filled in well. The Huskers were like a machine in the first half as they scored every time they had their hands on the ball, that was five possessions.

It was the first time since 1975 that the Huskers had been 10-0, and the shootout with Oklahoma for the Big 8 championship was set.
