THE FINAL score doesnt tell story of Nebraska's valiant fensive stand through three periods while holding the husky young men from Norman to two touchdowns. Dennis Emanuel, Bob Mullen, Bill Schabacker, Jerry Minnick, Don Boll, Ed Husmann. Carl Brasee and Jim Yeisley all played brilliantly. They were in the Sooner backfield a rood share of the afternoon, often causing Quarterback Eddie Crowder to throw off balance. Several laterals went haywire but Sooner luck held up and the Oklahomans recovered a big majority of their fumbles. I Actually it was Oklahoma's i tight defense with big Jim Weatherall in his usual role of giant killer, that paved the way for OU's triumph. It was the first later game in the Huskers last 21 starts in its own territory, that NU failed to score.
