UN Huskers
Play K-State
In their last home game of the
season, Nebraska s Huskers clash
with the Kansas State Wildcats to
morrow afternoon at 2 p. m. on
Memorial Stadium sod. Both teams
will be striving for their second
Big Six victory and a chance to
escape the conference cellar in
the season's final standings.
Tough competition is expected
of the Aggie squad but the Corn
huskers will be anxious to win in
their last appearance of the year
at Lincoln.
K-State Beats Kansas.
Kansas State holds one Big Six
victory, a win over Kansas, 18-14.
The Huskers also have one con
ference win, the upset homecom
ing victory over Missouri, 24-20.
The Aggies went down before the
Tigers on the short -end of a 33-0
score. Nebraska lost to Kansas by
a 20-0 count, both teams lost to
Iowa State, the Wildcats by a
14-0 count and Nebraska, 19-6.
From all indications the teams
will enter the field fairly evenly
matched, despite the fact that
early season predictors had con
ceded a Nebraska victory, basing
their assumptions on the very
