DVD - 1971 - Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Oklahoma Sooners"THE GAME OF THE CENTURY"
NOV 25th 1971 - Norman OK -
It was billed as the "Game of
the Decade" and came across as the "Game of the Century." That's the
story of the Nebraska-Oklahoma game, won by the Cornhuskers, 35-31,
before 61,826 fans at Owen Field and the largest TV audience ever to
watch a college game — more than 55,000,000 home viewers.
In one of the finest, most exciting and best covered games (hundreds of
writers, broadcasters and photographers from all parts of the nation),
the Cornhuskers twice came from behind in the second half to pull out a
sensational victory and maintain their No. 1 national ranking.

No. 2 ranked Oklahoma, led by a great quarterbacking job from Wishbone
artist Jack Mildren, gave the Huskers a magnificent battle before
becoming Nebraska's 21st straight victim. It was also Nebraska's 30th
straight win without a defeat.

Highlights, of course, were plentiful, but most impressive were such
notable accomplishments as Jeff Kinney running for 171 yards and four
TDs … Jerry Tagge guiding the Huskers with excellence and authority …
Johnny Rodgers' dazzling running and receiving … Rich Glovers' 22
tackles, tabbed the "greatest job by a defensive lineman ever seen" by
many … Larry Jacobson's awesome pass rushes … and the Black Shirts
holding Greg Pruitt to only 53 yards rushing.
Final Score: Nebraska 35 - Oklahoma 31
