Jim Skow tackle
Official recap
Nebraska got three big plays in the middle part of the game to get some breathing room and went on to record a 33-23 win over Missouri in a typical, hard-hitting Husker-Tiger game.

Middle guard Ken Graeber broke a 7-7 tie when he tackled Mizzou quarterback Marlon Adler for a safety, then I-back Doug DuBose gave NU a 16-7 lead on the next scrimmage play with a 48-yard touchdown run.

The Tigers pulled within 16-10 at halftime and were threatening again early in the second half when linebacker Marc Munford picked off a Warren Seitz pass and scored on a 57-yard return to give Nebraska a 23-10 lead which the Tigers couldn't overcome.
