Quantcast

 
Official recap
For the second straight week, fumbles were a major problem, as the Huskers put the ball on the ground eight times and gave it up four—twice in Minnesota territory.

In spite of that, NU still rolled up 405 rushing yards in the game — 183 by I-back Jeff Smith — and broke a scoreless first-quarter tie with a 21-point outburst in the second period. Quarterback Craig Sundberg got rid of whatever jitters he had had against Wyoming to complete eight of 10 passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns.

Smith also had 90 yards in kick returns, including a 51-yard punt return, for 273 all-purpose yards.
