Question: 'Where Is
'lusher. Aerial Much
Glaring Weakness ...
The big question this week, or might we say for the last two
weeks, has been, "Just what has happened to the Cornhusker passing
attack?" In the last two games, Nebraska has attempted exactly 16
aerials (eight In each game) and has completed only one a seven
yard pitch to Andy Loehr. Against Minnesota the Scarlet completed
nary a pass, unless you consider the three gathered In by Gopher
Per usual only one or two men are headed down field to aot
as eligible receivers; while anyone familiar with
gridiron rules knows that a team is permitted
to have five receivers down field. And per usual
Husker passers were given little if any protec
tion causing' their passes to be hurried and inac
curate. Contrast this to the pin-point, bullet-like
passing of Paul Giel (an A 11-American in any
one's book) who had all the protection in the
It was the same old story. Nebraska was con
tent to grind away at a ground game that was
successful in outdowning Minnesota 16-13 and out
gaining the Gophers 313 yards to 157 yards. Still
they were short six points in the final score.
One point of informationany team that has
successfully scored against Oklahoma this year has done It through
the air. Where does that leave Nebraska?
Look Magaizne Predicts ...
With only one football game remaining here at the Cornhusker
school, the natural tendency is to look toward Nebraska's basketball
opener with South Dakota on Dec. 6. Naturally national predictions
are of prime interest.
Tim Cohane and I. R. McVay released their forecast for the
1952-53 basketball season in this week's issue of Look magazine.
As a result of their predictions, the Big Seven conference has a
right to feel somewhat proud. Three Big Seven members are ranked
among the top twenty-five teams in the nation.
Kansas State is tabbed to finish sixth in national rankings, Mis
souri is olaced in sixteenth, and the graduation riddled Kansas Jav-
hawks are in the seventeenth position. Illinois is figured to be the top
team in the nation.
But as far as Nebraska is concerned, the joy is short-lived.
Messrs. Cohane and McVay have relegated the Cornhuskers to the
celler of the Big Seven loop. They have placed Kansas State in the
top spot, Missouri in the runner-up, and Kansas, Colorado, Okla
homa, Iowa State, and Nebraska following in that order.
The following were tabbed as star players. Seger, Good, John
ion of Nebraska; Knostman, Rousey, Prisock, Carby, Smith of Kan
sas State; Reiter, Wilfong, Landolt of Missouri; Hoag, Kelley, Reich,
Heitholt of Kansas; Gompert, Bunte, Harold of Colorado; Waller, Mc
Eachern, Churchill of Oklahoma; and Diercks, Long, Byerly of Iowa

In one of the few upsets of the
waning 1952 . season Mississippi
surprised third-ranked Maryland
21-14. This win put Ole Miss in
the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans
to oppose unbeaten Georgia Tech.
Mississippi Is unbeaten this
year, but has ties with Vander
bilt and Kentucky. It was
Maryland's first loss in 21
straight games. Ole Miss's de
fense was superb, holding all

With a 14-14 tie going into the
fourth quarter, Miss fought down
into scoring territory four times J
before it managed the scoring j
punch on a 42 yard pass by Jimi
Lear to the four yard line, and1
two line plunges. ,
Michigan State justified its
national rating lead by winning
its 23rd game in a row with a
convincing 21-3 win over Notre
After a scoreless first half,
Notre Dame zoomed into the lead
3-0 on a field goal by Bob Arrix.
The Spartans quickly assumed the
lead then as they parlayed a fum

down. Five minutes later the Spartans
scored again, and Michigan State
finished the scoring when Evean

The Irish committed 7 fumbles,
four of them in the third period,
all of which they lost. State also
fumbled 5 times, but recovered
4 of them.
Oklahoma spiked Missouri's
Big Seven hopes with a re
sounding 47-7 win. The Sooners
drove to two easy first quarter
scores, and were never in

straight title by beating Nebraska
Interceptions proved costly to
Missouri as they lost the ball
seven times on them, and three
were turned into touchdowns.
Merril Green made three
touchdowns to run off with
scoring honors. High-scoring
Buddy Leake and Billy Vessels
filled to score touchdowns.
Missouri was able to roll only
once, as Jim Hook took command
of the Tigers in the second quar
ter and began a passing attack
that gained 61 yards for a touch
down. A strong defensive heart was
all that saved Kansas from dis
aster as the Hawks narrowly
edged Oklahoma A&M 12-7.
The stout Kansas line stopped
the A?gies on the six and nine
yard lines in the first half, and
responded to a game-saving
stop on the one yard line after
Kansas went ahead 12-7.
Kansas scored first as Gil Reich
ran the end from 10 yards out.
The Cowboys quickly fought back
with Don Barbers pitching to
John Davis for a touchdown cli
maxing a 71 yard drive. Davis's
conversion put A&M ahead 7-6.
Here they remained until late in
the game when Kansas assem

The Aggies first score came as a

the kickoff. State's second score
came when Very! Swlteer elec
trified the crowd as he galloped
63 yards on a punt return.

the game to 14-13 at the half

news is the tie for first again
