Ex-Husker Joe Blahak, who threw key block for Rodgers, dies

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Former Nebraska defensive back Joe Blahak (Blah-ha), a member of the Cornhuskers' national championship teams in 1970-71, has died.

Roper & Sons Funeral Home in Lincoln confirmed Blahak's death Monday. He was 65.

The native of Columbus, Nebraska, was best known for throwing a key block to clear the way for Johnny Rodgers' 72-yard punt return for a touchdown in the 1971 "Game of the Century" against Oklahoma. Some observers believe Blahak's block actually was a clip, but no penalty was called and the Huskers won 35-31.
