The Nebraska Cornhuskers, new members of the increasingly ridiculously named Big Ten conference, welcomed traditional power Ohio State to Lincoln. The Huskers defeated the Buckeyes 34-27 after trailing by 21 points in the third quarter, due in large part to the performance of their burly running back, Rex Burkhead. Burkhead bulled his way through the Luckeyes for 119 yards on 26 carries and caught 5 passes for another 59 yards. Most of the damage came in the second half as the Nebraska offensive line wore out the Ohio State defenders and Burkhead ploughed through the holes for large gains. The 21 point deficit was the biggest ever ovecome by a Nebraska team.
