Thereafter it was about as easy as operating an automatic eornpicking machine, although the patcheri-up Sooners jumped Nebraska for an early 9-0 advantage and led for the first 35 minutes. The fumbling Nebraskans were mildly surprised by Ihe early turn of events but retained their composure fully aware thai it was a case of merely ha tiering down and running over ihe crippled OU forces for their first season sweep since 1915. ine powermi J-luskers made a lot: of nersons hannv TEXAS RALLY NIPS A&M, 21-17 to finish record.

Wilson was a whirlwind as Nebraska's two-touchdown punch in the third quarter carried Oklahoma to its sixth loss in nine games. The wide-sweeping junior punished the Sooners for 160 yards rushing as Nebraska overpowered Oklahoma with a total figure of 411 to 229, although most of the time the Huskers' air attack was nothing to boast about. OV had to work hard at the shuttle system to keep warm, healthy bodies in the lineup. Seeing only spot duty were limping hacks Tommy Pannell and Ben Hart and the anchor man of the Sooner defense, linebacker Carl MeAdams.
