Official recap

Too many mistakes in the wrong places spelled doom for Nebraska as the Huskers dropped a 17-13 decision to Florida State in brutal, 93-degree heat (it was 133 degrees on Memorial Stadium's artificial turf).

Nebraska fullback Tom Rathman raced 60 yards to give the Huskers an early 7-0 lead, but the Seminoles took advantage of key errors to build a 17-13 halftime lead and then held on for their second win in Lincoln in three tries.
