by dropping a 27-6 contest to the Oklahoma Sooners Satur
day at Norman.
Although they played inspired ball throughout the en
tire game and looked as good as they have at any time dur
ing the entire season, the Huskers simply could not match

The Nebraskans held the high
ly touted Joe Golding, the Soon
er's top candidate for all-America
honors, in check all afternoon,
but it fas by using the same Mr.
Golding as a decoy that Okla
homa was able to spring Jack
Mitchell and Dave Wallace loose
for substantial gains. However,
it was the Sooners aerial attack
rather than their ground assault
that paid dividends.
The first touchdown was scored
late in the opening quarter when
fullback Eddie Davis broke
through a hole in the Husker
left side and went twenty-one
yards into the end zone. The
Sooners had maneuvered into
scoring position by a series of
weak Husker punts which were
held back by a strong south wind.
When the Huskers finally got
themselves out of the hole, ahey
began a drive from the Oklahoma
forty-three yard line which re
sulted in a touchdown.
The biggest chunk of yardage
was picked up by speedy Dick
Hutton on a screen pass from
Fred Metheny. Hutton took the
ball on the Sooner forty-five and
behind the wall of blockers sped
thirty yards to the fifteen.
