Huskers Win Second Straight Title

A match up between top-ranked Nebraska and No.2-ranked Alabama was billed as the "Game of the Century II", but the 'Huskers proved to be far superior as they handed Alabama and coach Bear Bryant a 38-6 defeat.

The game followed Nebraskas 35-31 "Game of the Century I" win over Oklahoma that earned the Big Eight title and Orange Bowl berth.

Nebraska jumped to a 14-0 lead on a Jeff Kinney two-yard run and then 'Husker All-American Johnny Rodgers' 77 yard punt return for a touchdown on the final play of the first quarter.

Two more 'Husker scores engineered by Jerry Tagge in the second period gave Coach Bob Devaney's team a comfortable 28-0 halftime lead. Devaney notched his first win in three tries over Bryant.
