Although it didn't look like it in the opening minutes, things were back to normal in Memorial Stadium as ninth-rated (AP) Nebraska smashed Missouri, 63-6, to set up a Big Eight showdown at Colorado the following Saturday.
Like what Kansas State had done in the previous week's nail-biter, Mizzou stopped Nebraska on its first offensive possession, then drove deep into Husker territory to take a 3-0 lead on Jeff Jacke's 42-yard field goal with left in the first quarter.
But, unlike K-State, which battled NU all the way to the end in a 38-31 loss, the Tigers were never in it again.
Nebraska roared to three touchdowns for a 21-3 lead at the end of the first quarter, and averaged 13.5 yards per offensive play in the three drives.
I-back Derek Brown chipped in 118 yards and two TDs on 18 carries, to extend his string of 100-yard games to seven, the third-longest in Husker annals.
The option series was open all day to Nebraska and the Huskers took advantage of it.
Through the first three quarters, NU ran outside 19 times for 211 yards, averaging 11.1 yards per play.
Of the nine touchdown drives to the 63 points, the Huskers had six of at least 60 yards, with five of over 70 yards and two over 80.
The defense, meanwhile, held Missouri's 25-point-a-game offense without a touchdown.
