Official recap

Oklahoma's outstanding defense stifled Nebraska's offense for almost the entire game and turned away the Huskers' only two offensive scoring threats inside the Sooner 10 as OU topped Nebraska, 27-7.

The Huskers' own fine defense had not given up more than 157 rushing yards in 10 games, but yielded 423 to the Sooner wishbone, while Oklahoma held the Huskers to a season-low, by far, 224 total offense yards.

Only defensive tackle Chris Spachman kept the Huskers from being shut out for the first time in 147 games when he intercepted a fumble and returned it 76 yards to score with 26 seconds left. It was Spachman's second interception return touchdown of the season.
