November 26th, 1982 Lincoln, NE. Entire 1982 NU vs. OU game. Network broadcast footage. NU wraps up its second-straight Big Eight title and Orange Bowl bid in a fiercely-contested win over Oklahoma before its 124th consecutive sellout and a national TV audience. NU is led by The Triplets Rozier, Gill, and Fryar as they shine in their Junior campaigns as well as Senior Roger Craig. The Huskers trail, 10-7, early in the second period, but put together seven-play touchdown drives of 78 and 62 yards capped by 2- and 14-yard runs by fullback Doug Wilkening to take a 21-10 halftime lead. OU pushes back on the third play of the second half when freshman sensation Marcus Dupree accounts for more than half of his game-high 149 rushing yards as he sprints 86 yards to score, bringing OU within 21-17. The teams trade long TD drives in the third quarter. The Sooners are stymied twice inside the Husker 35 in the final period before a Scott Strasburger interception with 26 seconds left puts an end to any worries about another bout of Sooner magic. DVD video, 150 minutes.
