Dallas, Texas, Jan. 1, 1965--Coach Frank Broyles' Arkansas Razorbacks mounted an 80-yard fourth quarter drive against a previously impregnable Nebraska defense to down the Huskers, 10-7, in NU's first Dallas appearance.

The Huskers had led most of the way in one of the greatest defensive battles in bowl history. Arkansas scored first on a 31-yard Tom McKnelly field goal in the first quarter. But sophomore Harry Wilson capped a 69-yard Husker march in the second quarter on a 1-yard plunge to give Nebraska a 7-3 halftime lead. The Huskers held that lead until Bobby Burnett finished the Arkansas drive with a 3-yard TD run with 4:50 left in the game. In the fierce defensive struggle, first downs were even at 11, and the Razorbacks held a slim, 176-168 total offense edge.
