Bordogna Slated To See Action
At Quarterback; IS Next Hurdle
Nebraska came roaring back
against Missouri and Kansas at
the start of the third quarter only
to fumble the ball on the four
yard line in both games.
On countless occasions, the
Huskers have given ODDonents a
chance to score by fumbling the I
Dau away.
If Nebraska holds fumbling and
tnrowmg xne Dau away to a mini
mum, the Cyclones will know
they've been in a ball game. This
jsaturday afternoon could be the
November surprise Glassford has
been hoping for.
Prognosticators of great fame,
had Nebraska slated for the great
est season since 1940 with a good
chance to capture the Big Seven
crown and possibly go undefeated.
To date, the Huskers have tied
one, lost five. All-American Bob
Reynolds has been held to less
iicjuuiuo uaa uccu ueiu ill lean
than 100 yards rushing and scored!
only one touchdown.
Nebraska's defensive line prob
ably reached its peak against
Kansas. Pass defense, except for
a few lapses, has done well. Of
fensive backs on most occasions
have driven with all they had for
This leaves one major defect

Guard George Kinnard, who has
grabbed the departed Mike Mc
Cormack's toga as the Jayhawks'
top blocker this autumn.
"Weight isn't nearly as impor-;
tant as a quick reaction," the
husky Jayhawk senior illumi-
nates. "If you're outcharged all
day you'll never beat anybody." I
Kennard, a 201-pound senior
from Kansas City, Mo., has been
unusually impresisve with his
pull-out blocking through K. U.'s
first four games. The brawny sen
tinel can go either way with equal
effectiveness. He also is a sturdy
straight - ahead p 1 o w e r, thus
rounding out excellent overall of
fensive ability.
He'll be called upon to furnish
a lot of flinty walloping Satur

This catch was the longest pass

making the extra points was the
fact that the . fingers of the

intramural squads continued to
play good ball when Skalla again
wound up his arm and fired the
ball to Ray Mladovich on a short

was away from the Delt receiver.
