Big Seven teams served notice
that they were to be feared on
a national basis Saturday. Out of
tne six Big seven teams tnat
opened their seasons, Missouri was
the only team to lose, and that
loss was experienced at the hands
of the team many sportswriters
picked to be tops in the nation,
The Tigers from Missouri
were edged in the final minute
on s pass by Jack Scarbath,
1 who passed for both Maryland
touchdowns. Missouri scored Its
touchdown in the second quar
ter when Tony Scardino passed
to Buddy Makin. Paul Fuchs
converted for the extra point.
-With a minute remaining in the
first half, Fuchs shot a 13-yard
field goal through the uprights,
thus the vastly under-rated Tigers
assumed a 10-0 half-time lead.
Early in the fourth quarter Scar
bath pitched to Ralph Felton for
the first Terp score. In the dying
seconds of the game Scarbath
spotted Lloyd Colteryann on Mis
souri's 26 yard line and hit him
for the winning touchdown.
The combination of an air
tight defense and former Army
star Gil Reich's passing led
Kansas University to an impres
sive 13-0 win over highly re
garded TCU. TCU's greatly
feared spread formation never
received a chance to function
properly against a hard charg
ing KU line. Kansas Coach Jules
Sikes was highly elated with
the defensive end play of Don
Bracelin and Morris Kay, which
he termed near perfect.
Gil Reich spurred the KU of
fense by his running and passing.
Early in the first quarter Reich
shot a pass to John Konek, who
scored, and in the fourth quarter
he passed to Bob Brandeberry,
who scored the second KU
Colorado scored a lack-luster
win over San Jose State in a
close 20-14 game. It was a
costly game for the Golden
Buffaloes, for pint-sized scat
back Woody Shelton received
injuries that will keep him out
of the crucial Oklahoma and
KU contests. Colorado couldn't
stop State fullback Dick Stults,
who scored both touchdowns
and ground out 177 yards in 22
plays. Hero of the game for

Colorado was Frank Bernardl,
who scored the winning touch
down on a 53 yard punt return.

State ground out a 57-19 win over
out-classed South Dakota State.
Mann passed for three touch
downs, while Cozzi rammed for

A stiff Kansas State defense
gave up only 76 yards to Bradley,
as the Aggies scored a 21-7 win.
Bradley succeeded in gaining only
33 yards rushing and 43 passing
against a determined Wildcat line.
Carl Albacker, 'Cat quarterback,
scored two touchdowns on short
sneaks over the goal line.
Nebraska's next foe, Oregon
University, proved itself sur
prisingly tough as UCLA ral
lied to win 13-6. Oregon's lone
score same when quarterback
Hal Dunham passed 38 yards to
halfback George Shaw to as

Standout player for Oregon was

game. Time and time again he
stopped the UCLA attack single-handed.
