Tom Osborne reached 250 victories faster than any coach in college football history as host Nebraska said goodbye to longtime archrival Oklahoma.
Osborne, in his 25th season, got No.
250 in his 302nd game, 18 fewer than Penn State's Joe Paterno needed to reach that plateau. Osborne is 250-49-3.
The Nebraska-Oklahoma series has been played annually since 1928 and almost every year produced the champion of the Big Eight. When the Big 12 was formed, Nebraska and Oklahoma went into different divisions and aren't scheduled to play again until 2000.
The 62-point margin was the worst in Oklahoma history, exceeding the 52-point deficit in last year's 73-21 loss to the Huskers. Oklahoma had its lead in the series reduced to 39-36-3.
