What’s more remarkable than Dale Klein setting an NCAA record by making seven field goals in seven attempts in one game?
Perhaps that seventh-ranked Nebraska needed Klein to make seven field goals in seven attempts to defeat a winless Missouri team that sported a porous defense.
But the Huskers, despite a career-high 199 rushing yards from Doug DuBose, didn’t find the end zone until the fourth quarter of their 28-20 victory before 62,733 fans at Faurot Field and a regional television audience.
Klein, a junior walk-on from Seward, connected from 32, 22, 43, 44, 29, 43 and 43 yards. He also kicked a PAT for a Big Eight-record 22 points by kicking.
Said an understated Tom Osborne after the game: “Dale deserves a lot of credit for this win.”
