In Last Game
Typifying the bad breaks of
disasturous gridiron season, time
ran out on the hard-luck Huskers
of Nebraska and ended their 1951
football campaign on tne enemy
Unmindful of the three touch
down margin that faced them,
the Huskers galliantly battled
the Gator Bowl bound Hurri
canes of Miami on even terms In
the first half, but singed under
the fire of a red hot Hurricane
offense to lose 19-7.
The gang of Cornhuskers. led by
their laso ringieaaer, Bobby Key
nolds, played courageous, heads
up football ana even Andy Gus
tavfson, head coach of the Hurri
canes, aamiuea mat -we were
sure lucky to win this one."
Never was a truer word
spoken. The Huskers led 7-6
at the end of the first half and
the 33,000 Floridan rooters were
praying; that Gustafvson could
find the right words in the
locker room to rally the Miami
eleven from the darkness of an
Frank Smith, highly touted
Miami left halfback ran wide to
his left trying to spot a pass re
ceiver from the Nebraska 22 yard
line, but all the tragets were well
covered and Smith sprinted the
necessary yardage for six points.
Tremont s kick was no good.
With seconds ticking off rapidly
to end a hectic first half of de
fensive football, Johnny Bordogna
threw a desperation pass on the
last play of the half. The ball
skidded off the fingertips of the
intended receivers and defenders
and was pfeked off six inches
above the croud o the 19-yard
line by Reynolds who went the
Decker's perfect placement
ended the first half with the
Huskers leading and also ended
the scoring for the Cornhuskers
In this season finale.
It was a triumphant night for
Rambling Robert Reynolds, who
had the crowd completely flab
bergasted at his swivel-hipped
antics which would stir memories
on his phenominal performances
"Mr. Touchdown" smashed
through the Hurricane wall for
172 yards, his highest total of the
year. Bob's passing, Kicking ana
pass was nothing short of superb.
It was a heart-breaking finish
as the determined Huskers took
the knock-out punch from father
time as they had ripped their
way within inches of another
Father time dealt the Huskers
their toughest blows this season
with the inexperienced gridders
that Coach Bill Glassford had to
mold. Father time was undoubt-
ably losing ground as the Com-1
husker youngsters looked continu
ally stronger as the season closed.
Schabacker, Mullen, Simon.
, Ponsiego, Sommers, Minnick. .
Kennedy, Cederdahl should re
ceive plaudits for their tremen
dous efforts. John Bordogna,
playing in front of his toughest
critic his father, had difficulty
finding open targets in the vac
umn tight Hurricane defense.
A great season finish to a Hus
ker football team that gave their
all. The competition was tough all
the way this year and the Husker
fans are singing the old familiar
"wait til next year!"
