Final score, Nebraska 13 Iowa 7
It may not have been pretty, but the No. 14 Nebraska Cornhuskers managed to hold off the inspired Iowa Hawkeyes at Kinnick Stadium to clinch their first Big Ten Conference Legends Division title and finish the regular season with a 10-2 record.
The Cornhuskers trailed 7-3 at halftime before injured running back Rex Burkhead entered the game and rushed for 69 yards and Nebraska's only touchdown of the game.
Iowa's defense limited the Cornhuskers to 258 total yards, unfortunately the Hawkeyes did not make enough plays on offense to win the game.
Nebraska picked off James Vandenberg twice in the second half and held the Hawkeyes to a mere 200 yards of offense.
Bo Pelini's team will head to Indianapolis next Saturday to face the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
