Rodgers' return vs. Oklahoma still resonates 50 years later

Fifty years later, fans of all ages still ask Johnny Rodgers about that electrifying play.

They want a first-person account of the bobbing, weaving, 72-yard punt return for a touchdown that helped Rodgers and No. 1 Nebraska beat No. 2 Oklahoma 35-31 in Norman on Thanksgiving Day back in 1971. After all, it was the signature highlight of the "Game of the Century" - the best of the best in a rare game that lived up to that billing.

Rodgers, now 70, still lives on the north side of his hometown, Omaha, Nebraska. He is humbled that the play - and the game - resonate after all these years.
