The Scarlet offensive machinery
bogged down completely againit
the stubborn Cyclones and it was
not until the final three minutes
of play that the UN eleven could
manage to compile a first down.
It was hard to believe that the
Huskers won the game. After
last Saturday's unspirited exhibi
tion in the first half, Nebraska
followers were unable to imagine
the Huskers in a more pitiful
state but the Scarlet gridders
reached a new low in helpless
ness in front of 12,500 fans who
attended the parents' day in
Capitalize On Breaks.
A wild pass from center and
a blocked punt provided the
Huskers with their two acorinj
opportunities after the Cyclones
had taken a 7 to 0 lead at the
end of the first half.
The first break for Nebraska
occurred late in the third quar
ter when Ron Norman went into
deep punt formation on the fourth
down for Coach Abe Stuber'a
scrappy Iowans.
Norman reached unsuccessfully
for the ball as it sailed well over
his head and bounded toward the
Cyclone goal. Jack Pesek and
Carl Samuelson smeared Norman
on the IS five yard line where
the Huskers took over.
Dick Hutton provided the first
Nebraska touchdown when he
skirted left end to enter the end
zone standing up from the three
yard line.
A similar lucky break gave
Coach Bernie Masterson's pupils
their margin of victory.
Damkroger Blocks Punt.
Rugged Ralph Damkroger
blasted through the Iowa State
defenders to smother a Norman
punt. The ball was on the 23
at the time of the play and when
the flurry of activity ended, Guard
Fred Lorenz was curled around
the pigskin on the Cyclone three
yard line.
Quarterback Del Wicgand took
no chances on a fumble but car
ried the ball himself to plow into
