Nebraska’s six-man all-stars evened their series with Wyoming at five games apiece after winning the Six-man Shootout 48-14 Friday in Chadron, Nebraska.

Nebraska has won the last two contests it has played with Wyoming in the series, which started in 2012.

The only bit of drama in the game didn’t last long.

After falling behind 28-8 at halftime, Farson’s Parker Clawson caught a 19-yard touchdown pass from Farson teammate Triston Lamorie on Wyoming’s first drive of the second half, and Nebraska’s lead was cut to 28-14.

After recovering an onside kick, Wyoming was in position to make it a one-score game but couldn’t generate a first down on the subsequent drive. Nebraska scored on its next drive to again make the lead 20 points, 34-14.

In the fourth quarter, Wyoming had two turnovers plus a turnover on downs and Nebraska scored twice to make it 48-14.

The Cornhusker State players started fast and took a 14-0 lead early. Clawson scored on a short run with 51 seconds left in the first quarter to cut the lead to 14-8.

Two more Nebraska touchdowns in the second quarter pushed the lead to 28-8 by halftime.

Team Wyoming had 18 players from eight different six-man schools.

Some updates to the site:

I added David Jones’ 1982 rushing season to the individual records listings. The back from Saratoga had 1,976 rushing yards that year, good for ninth all-time.

I also added a few new first names to the all-state listings from 1920-39. I’m still missing more than 100 first names, though, so if you can help filling in those gaps, let me know.

I also added the 2020 Casper Star-Tribune’s Super 25 first team to the Super 25 listings. Thanks to Jack Nowlin at the Star-Tribune for providing the details necessary to make that happen!

I also added a page for the Wyoming-Nebraska Six-man Shootout game, listing game results, coaches and players for each year.

I also added a page for Wyoming high school football players who played at least one NFL regular-season snap. This information was previously on my blog, but I wanted to give it a more permanent home.

A 24-point first quarter was the difference in Nebraska’s 52-25 victory against Wyoming in the Six-man Shootout all-star football game Thursday in Harrison, Neb.

Nebraska scored on its first three possessions in the first quarter and converted on all three two-point kicks to take a 24-0 lead. Wyoming never got closer than 14 points the rest of the game.

Hanna’s Conor McGraw scored all four Wyoming touchdowns.

His first came in the first minute of the second quarter, as he scored from 23 yards out to cut Nebraska’s lead to 24-6. But Nebraska scored late in the second quarter and led 32-6 at halftime.

Wyoming had some life in the third quarter. McGraw scored again on Wyoming’s first drive of the third quarter, trimming Nebraska’s lead to 32-12. After a Nebraska fumble on their next drive, McGraw scored again on a 74-yard run to make the score 32-18 midway through the third quarter.

However, Nebraska scored on its next drive to boost its lead to 38-18. Nebraska scored on its first drive of the fourth quarter and added another touchdown on its next drive to run the score to 52-18.

McGraw scored on a 65-yard run late in the fourth quarter for the final margin.

This year’s game was originally scheduled for Chadron, Nebraska, but was moved to Harrison after COVID-19 concerns for the campus of Chadron State College, where the game would have been played.

Wyoming leads the all-time series 5-4.
