Steve Forch

Official recap

Keith Jones sprinted 62 yards to the Arizona State 8-yard line, setting up a 3-yard touchdown run by Steve Taylor with 3:37 left in the game, giving second-ranked Nebraska a 35-28 win over the 12th-ranked Sun Devils.

Moments before Jones' long run, ASU had taken advantage of a Taylor fumble at the NU 13, and had driven in to tie the game at 28 on Darryl Harris' 1-yard run. Even after Taylor's score, the Huskers needed a Steve Forch interception at their 30 with 2:38 to go to seal the victory.
