Bordogna Slated To See Action
At Quarterback; IS Next Hurdle
The Benchvarmer
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 opponents a
chance to score by fumbling the
ball away.
If Nebraska holds fumbling and
mrowmg xne ban away to a mini
mum, the Cyclones will know
they've been in a ball game. This
Saturday 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. Ail-American Bob
Reynolds has been held to less
two seniors, three juniors, and
two sophomores.
This same line has five players
who have had college experience.
Last year, the Huskers ranked
third in rushing in the nation with
some of the same men it has now.
This year, Nebraska is hear the
bottom in ground gaining, in the
Big Seven.
Pass defense against the Horned
Frogs of Texas Christian was the
worst of the season. Minnesota
and Missouri completed ' many
passes, but on the whole, pass de
fense has improved.
If Nebraska stops giving the
opposition several touchdowns
right before the half, there may
be a few wins on the record.

Kansan Tells
Of Success
"You've got to hit the other guy
harer and quicker," says Kansas
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."
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 i
a lot of flinty walloping Satur

All the selectors were stymied
last week when U.C.L.A. sur

football squad trounced a favored

The Purdue win over Penn
State also caused our people in

the thirteen pickers hit this one
on the nose, as they did on the
Columbia victory over Cornell.
In the departmental averages,
the business office continues to

the team suffering most, from a
poor schedule. The Ramblers are
undefeated and untied this year,
but they have had to cope with a
snap schedule. They bopped their
only Class A competition, 19-7. but
have looked rather unimpressive
in their victories over class B
schools thus far, especially Blair.
The current collegiate football
season continues to be a big head

spot, as was expected. The Ne
braska Cornhuskers are the big
disappointment as Coach Glass
ford attempts to rally his team
from the depths of the league
cellar and an unvictorious year.
All in. all, there are many
coaches who will be seeking em
ployment come next year. The
list of undefeated clubs this year
is considerably smaller than any
other year. The pros have some

This catch was the longest pass

was unable to make the extra
One of the reasons for not
making: the extra points was the
fact that the , fingers of the
players were stiff from the cold
weather. This cold weather
hampered the playing of the
boys very much.
Even with the chilliness, 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
14-yard pass. The conversion try
was away from the Delt receiver.
The final scores of the game
came in the last period on a
