Mike Croel punt block

Official recap

Nebraska scored on the game's first four possessions - its first two and Missouri's first two - and cruised to its biggest win ever at Columbia.

After Gerry Gdowski threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Morgan Gregory, Mike Croel blocked Mizzou's first punt for a Husker safety. Gdowski then ran 34 yards for another Nebraska score, and Travis Hill then blocked the Tigers' second punt and Reggie Cooper, who was later named the Big Eight's defensive player-of-the-week, recovered in the end zone for a 23-0 lead in the game's first seven minutes.
