It was the deadly aerial gunning of Iowa's
Tom Farmer which spelled defeat for the
Huskers at Iowa City a week back. Today it

Key figure in the march was sophomore full
back, Ki Eisenhart whose plunging on third
and fourth downs accounted for four straight
llusker first downs enroute. Bradley flipped
15 yards to Al Zikmund on the Cyclone four
yard stripe ot set pins for the score. Zikmund
