Trojans Leave No Doubts by Taking It to Cornhuskers - NY Times
...Ostensibly still in the game, the Huskers came unhinged early in the second half as Sam Keller threw back-to-back interceptions...

...By the time Nebraska scored again with 12:09 left, U.S.C. was leading 42-10 and a long line of taillights could be seen driving away...

...Just what impact the overwhelming victory will have on the polls is unclear. But it seems likely that U.S.C. reasserted its grip on some of the No. 1 votes it lost from the preseason polls, particularly in the Associated Press poll — in which 62 of 65 voters had deemed U.S.C. No. 1 and some 22 had changed allegiances since.

“Everybody wanted to make a big deal out of L.S.U.,” U.S.C. defensive end Sam Baker said, adding, “We’re going to continue to be No. 1 and to play like a No. 1 team.”
