Pass Play By AW, AW
Spalls Flie Difference
From The Sidelines
Although the Cornhuskers missed several scoring opportune ies
during their 18-7 loss to Minnesota Saturday before 40,000 home
coming fans, they were spasmodically superior in their showing
gainst mo lavuiTO vjupners.
Had their passing attack been up to par, the
Huskers could easily have had the ball in their
control during most cf the game, and probably
capitalized with touchdowns on several occasions.
The Gohpers' aerial assault however, was the
deciding factor in the game. Led by their triple
threat star halfback Paul Giel, they completed
six of 18 pass attempts for a 166-yard total, as
compared to Nebraska's completion of none for
Giel's running and passing sparked the of
fensive attack of Wes Fesler's charges while safety
Bob McNamara and linebacker Gerald Helgeson
led the Gopher, defensive corps. McNamara, who
played offensive end as well as safetv. was the
big cog in the win. Time after time when it looked like a Husker
back might go all the way, McNamara would be there to stop him.
Nebraska's highly-rated defensive platoon train looked sharp,
folding the Mtnnesotans to only 157 yards by rushing. The entire
Nebraska defensive forward wall put up a meted resistance to the
tricky Gopher attack, which utilised a number of different formations.

Novak and George Cifia all did some fine running at various times,
but it was hard-driving Korinek who kept the GoDher seormrirv
busy all afternoon. Jerry Yeager, who started at defensive right I
end in place of ineligible Dennis Emanuel, was commended by Coach I
