board to Husker track success in
the 1951-52 competition.

and a fine crop of freshmen pro

is to find suitable replacements
for such stalwarts as Lee Alex

Colorado's Golden Buffaloes,
operating with machine-line pre

tory over the Injury riddled
Cornhuskers Saturday at Memo
Stymied after losing John
Bordogna, Bob Reynolds, Jim
Yieslejr and Jim Cederdahl be
cause of injuries, Nebraska's
offensive sputtered and stalled
after the first quarter.
Husker's first quarter play was
reminiscent of the 1950 squad.
Nebraska kicked off to Colorado
and Davidson fumbled. Verl Scott
alertly fell on the ball on the
Bordogna and Reynolds threw
four incomplete passes and the
ball went to the Buffaloes.. Los
ing yardage on two plays. Colo
rado punted and In eight plays,
the Huskers drove 50 yards on
passes with Bordogna scoring
from one yard out.
Bobby Decker kicked his first
of two extra points and the Husk
ers led, 7-0.
After an exchange of punts,
Colorado took the ball on their
21 and made a sustained drive of
79 yards as Hardy scored on a
pitch-out play covering 18 yards.
Williams missed the extra point
and Nebraska led 7-6.
Nebraska again fell apart In
the second quarter as the Buffs
poured across 20 points and
threatened again before the half
The Huskers took the ball on
ensuing kick-off and went to
the Colorado 23, but a rough
ness penalty brought the ball
back to the Buff 35 and Ne
braska gave up the ball on
downs on the 31.
Again the Buffaloes took the
ball and in eight plays scored on
a pass from Jordon to Hardy.
After the kick-off, Nebraska
had a second down and one yard
to go on their 29. when Scott's
pass from center sailed over
Reynolds head and Bobby recov
ered on the Husker two.
Cedetdahl punted to the Ne
braska 44. Although the Buff's
were penalized twice, they drove
to pay dirt in eight plays. Jordon
passed to Davidson for the
Nebraska took the opening
kick-off of the second half and
sped to the Colorado 19 as Bob
Reynald's 69 yard run ate up
most of the yardage.
The Huskers had then driven
to the six, but on the fourth down,
Don Norns was trapped on the 25
when he couldn't find a receiver
Colorado picked up two points
as Scott's center again sailed over
Reynold s head out of the end
zone. Two plays before, Jordon
had quickkicked and the ball
rolled out of bounds on the
After the safety, Decker kicked
off from the Nebraska 20. Deck
er's kick was short, and Roger
Hunt, Colorado lineman, grabbed
the ball on the 41 and got to the
39 before being hauled down.
Colorado then initiated a scor
ing drive which was halted only
once. When the Huskers held
for downs on their own 32, Zack
Jordan punted out of bounds on
the NU 1-yard-linc.
Jim Cederdahl booted the ball
out of the hole to Brookshicr on
the 35. Colorado then moved the
ball down the field to score in
nine plays, one of which was a
21-yard run by Carroll Hardy.
The Buffs moved to the one and
it looked like the Scarlet-shirted
Cornhuskers might hold, as Mer
win Hodel's touchdown plunge
was nullified by a penalty and the
Buffaloes were pushed back for a
five-yard loss. Jordan sent the
Husker's hopes downward as he
plunged to the one, and Woody
Shelton smashed through guard
for the touchdown. Williams' kick
was good, and Colorado led 29-7.

Since coming to the Colorado
helm, Ward has built a team which
is rated as one of the powers of
midwestern football. After losing
some close games in the first two
years, Ward came up with a win
ning team which compiled a 5-4-1
record last year. And it was his
Buffaloes who upset Nebraska
28-19 at Boulder last year.
This year the Buffs are
loaded for bear, with such stars
as Zack Jordan, Woody Shel
ton, Merwin Hodel, Don Bran

this powerful aggregation, Ward
has moved his club into second
place in the Big Seven.
And it looks like the Buffs will
be on the warpath again next
year, as Ward will lost only a
handful of men by graduation.
Ward is on his way to the top, and
it appears that this year and next
will be just two more long strides
up the trail.
