Rain Helps Huskers ...
It always happens. For two long months, the state of Nebraska
has not been blessed with Tain, but the minute 6,000 Husker fans
migrate to Kansas for a weekend of football, It not only rains or
drizzles it pours. Nevertheless the spirit of the Cornhusker fans was
not dampened, nor did the downpour clog the horns of the meager
Nebraska Pep Band they were all behind the team until the final
gun sounded. No one could miss the unison of voices from the north
ern end of the stadium as they counted out loudly the final 30 sec-

in his seat, raincoat around his shoulders, and head bowed. He was
removed from the gnme by Coach J. V. Sikes, after the winning Ne
braska touchdown was scored in favor of the dazzling Gil Reich. It
was the second of Robertson's two bobbles that gave the Huskers the
ball on the Kansas 27-yard line.
Defense-Offense Balanced ...
On paper, the defensive and offensive Nebraska platoons were
almost even. But it was the head-up play of the Husker line that set
up both Scarlet scores. Outstanding in their play Saturday were Verl
Scott, immovable Big Red linebacker, and Dan Brown, a rapidly im
proving sophomore secondary defender.
Many were of the opinion that Kansas outplayed Nebraska, but
look at the statistics. Kansas had IS first downs, Nebraska 10. The
Huskers gained 206 yards on the ground and seven passing for a !
total of 213 yards ard Kansas gained 114 yards on the ground and
100 passing for a total of 214 yards. The Jayhawks fumbled 6 timet
and Nebraska only four. Here was the difference.
Reflections ... v
One of the most amazing performances of the 1952 football sea
son was put on by Gil Reich in the last five minutes of the game.
The way he handled and passed the soaked pigskin was a sight to
see. . . Order on the field during Saturday's game was nil. Fans
roamed the sidelines and players refused to be seated. Contrast this
with the strict policing of the Memorial Stadium sidelines here at
Nebraska and Ihe calm attitude of the Nebraska players. . . Question

The 1952 intramural football
chase narrowed down to the finals
in the Independent struggle and
the semi-finals in the fraternity
"A" race Friday evening with
three contests entered in the books
as official. A fourth game readied
the fraternity "B" tourney for its
second round of action.
The big news Friday was that
It will be a re-match between
the mighty Mustangs and
scrappy Navy ROTC for the
1952 Independent gridiron
crown. Both teams turned in
impressive w-ins in their semi
final contests Friday to gain the
The Mustangs ground out their
ninth consecutive victory of the
year, stopping the pesky Rockets
by a 27-7 count.
For the first time this year. It
looked bad for the Mustanrs
who went into the playoffs tied
with Phi Kappa Psi as the top
teams in the University. The
Rockets stunned the small crowd
of spectators who braved freez
ing weather by striking for a
second-quarter score to enjoy a
7-0 lead. It was the first time
this season the Horsies had ever
found themselves behind, in
fact, they held the only un-scored-on
mark in I-M play go
ing into the semi-final battle.
What made it even more glaTi
'orous for the Rockets was the fact
jthat they played the entire first
half with only six men and held
complete control until the final
minute before intermission.
After a scoreless first-period
that saw the Rockets putting on
two sustained drives, carrying to
the Mustang 35 and 30 before
being stopped, the losers really
began to roll. Two minutes deep
in the second stanza they took
over on their own 21 and began
the drive that carried them to
the first points scored on the
Mustangs this ysar. i
With Chuck Jensen and Hal An
drews throwing the leather, the
Rockets ate up consistent yardage
and seven plays later they found
themselves with a first down on
the Mustang 27. The remaining
yardage was gobbled-up fast as
Andrews heaved a perfect strike
to Rex Chichester who made an
over-the-shoulder catch and out
'ran Mustang safety, Marv Green,
the rest of the way. Andrews fired
to Jensen for the seventh counter
'and the Mustangs knew they had

Realizing that allowing a score
was not necessarily allowing a
defeat, the Mustangs began to
display their power. With one
minute to go in the first half,
they slashed 52 yards in three
plays and then from the Rocket
eight, Jack Mankamyer flipped
the touchdown pass to Lowell
Hoyt. The half ended 7-7 as
Mankamyer tossed to Don Sum
mers for the extra point.
The Rockets didn't know It then,;
and with the arrival of their
seventh player they had high
hopes, but it was all over. The
favorites exploded for two tallies
in the third period and added an-
