Late rally
lifts Huskers
over Wolfpack
It took a fabulous last-ditch drive for the Cornhuskers to topple North Carolina State, 19-14, and remain unbeaten. The inspired Wolfpack - pepped by quarterback Jim Rossi and scatback Joe Scarpati, who stunned NU with a 91-yard kickoff return for a go-ahead TD in the third quarter - had the Huskers in a jam until the final minutes.

stuewe_dennis (1K)With 13:52 of the final period gone, Dennis Stuewe skipped 12 yards for the clincher, capping a sensational drive generaled by Dennis Claridge. It was Stuewe’s second tally of the final frame as the Huskers were forced to come from a 14-7 deficit.

H’MAX NOTES: The Huskers' first fourth-quarter TD capped an 80-yard drive. … The winning drive covered 68 yards and started with 2:45 left in the game. … Stuewe, who hadn't played since the Michigan game, came off the bench to score his two fourth-quarter TDs. … The win gave NU its first sweep of its non­con­fer­ence opponents since 1915.
