Official recap

Nebraska wrapped up its second-straight Big Eight title and Orange Bowl bid with a fiercely-contested, 28-24 win over Oklahoma before its 124th consecutive sellout and a national television (CBS) audience - but not until defensive end Scott Strasburger's interception with 26 seconds left killed a last-gasp Sooner effort.

The Huskers trailed, 10-7, early in the second period, but put together seven-play touchdown drives of 78 and 62 yards capped by 2- and 14-yard runs by fullback Doug Wilkening to take a 21-10 halftime lead. OU and freshman sensation Marcus Dupree weren't finished, though, as Dupree accounted for more than half of his game-high 149 rushing yards when he sprinted 86 yards to score on the third play of the second half, bringing the Sooners within 21-17.

The teams traded long TD drives in the third quarter, then the Sooners were stymied twice inside the Husker 35 in the final period before Strasburger's interception sealed their fate.
