LINCOLN, Neb. - Iowa State's conference road-opener in 1977 began in Lincoln, Neb., against the ninth-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Huskers, still smarting from ISU's 1976 victory in Ames, entered the contest after defeating nationally ranked Alabama the previous week.

NU scored first with an I.M. Hipp 59-yard TD in the first quarter to go up, 7-0. ISU promptly answered with a 13-play, 76-yard scroing drive that ended with quarterback Terry Rubley's 5-yard run on the option to even the score. Another Hipp touchdown, this time from 17 yards, gave NU a 14-7 lead, but it was quickly followed by Cyclone Dexter Green's 19-yard TD run to once again even the score (14-14). ISU finally took its first lead in the seesaw affair after Mike Clemons recovered Husker quarterback Randy Garcia's fumble. The turnover led to a 3-yard Cal Cummins TD run to give ISU a 21-14 edge at intermission.

ISU kicker Scott Kollman extended the lead to 24-14 early in the third quarter with a 32-yard field goal. Hipp scored his third TD of the day in the third quarter to close the gap to 24-21, but the ISU defense shut down NU's comeback to register a second straight win over the Cornhuskers. Green and Cummins carried for 139 and 115 yards on the ground, respectively.
