The second half belonged to the NU defense. The Blackshirts turned an interception into a field goal and a 13-10 Big Red lead, before the Huskers used some razzle-dazzle to pull away. Freshman Mike Stuntz, a future NU QB, took a pitch on a reverse and hit Quarterback Eric Crouch with a 63-yard scoring toss that iced the win. The win was the Huskers 20th straight at home, and snapped Oklahoma's 20-game winning streak.
Dahrann Diedrick rushed for 86 yards against the vaunted OU defense, and is closing in on the 1,000 yard mark with 957 yards on the season. Crouch was 10-18 for 102 yards passing.
A re-match in the Big 12 title game in Dallas is very possible, provided neither team slip up in their last four games.
Next up for the Huskers, a trip to Lawrence, Kansas to face the Kansas Jayhawks. Game time next week, is 6pm CST. The game will be televised by Fox Sports Net.
