An exchange of punts midway
in the third quarter gave Iowa

Curren slithered his way 13 yards

Uknes blasted his way over the
Husker right guard for four more
Curren slid away for 10 yards
to the 18-yard stripe and the stage
was set for Farmer to toss 15
yards to the rampaging Curren
on the 3-yard stripe. One brief

Big Vic Schleich, a constant
power at left tackle, stopped
Farmer's conversion with his
chest. Score was 13-0 and Husker
fans hopefully started to remin

eleven had overcome a 13-0 Hawk
