THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
From The Sidelines
The Cornhusker football team, which finished off Its schedule
Saturday at Norman when they absorbed a 84-13 defeat from
mighty Oklahoma, have definitely had a successful season for 1952.
Coach Bill Glassford's team, tied for fifth and sixth with Kan
sas State In last year's final standings, has come a long way since
that dismal season of last year which is rated as the worst In
Cornhusker history. The Buskers had a one win, four losses and one
tie conference record and a 1-8-1 all-game record last year. They
were last in Big Seven standings according to their win-loss show
ing In all games.
But the standing: this season are naturally 11L
more pleasing to view. The NU team Is third sr""
In the conference standing's with a 3-2-1 ree- I
plenty respectable, considering they came out
above the Kansas Jaj hawks and Colorado Buf
faloes In the leagpe.
Missouri Loss Costly
One game which meant a lot to the Nebraska
outcome was the Tigcr-Husker tussle in Lincoln
X. ... 1 .. . V. 4 W - T: A 1.... A. 1
pull a 10-6 upset win out of the fire. That game, s 1?
it is agreed by almost all NU followers, was the v
poorest exhibition of offense which Nebraska Nelson
showed all season. Despite the strong Missouri defense, the Huskers
fhould have been able to push the ball across on several occasions
when good breaks were plentiful.
Had the crackerjack Tig-er team not caught the Huskers nap
ping, Nebraska's record might have been good enough to land a
second place In the conference. But after looking at Missou 's
win record seeing a team move from seventh to second in one
year while defeating top-notch opponents one can't help, but ad
mire the MU climb up the ladder.
Jay Power Gone
The Kansas Jayhawkers, who two weeks ago proudly held
down fifth place in the nation according to Associated Press rat
ings, hover near a tie for fourth and fifth in the Big Seven final
standings. The KU club has three wins and three ties, while Color
ado has a 2-2-2 record. Iowa State and Kansas State, who battled
for last place honors Saturday, had no wins recorded on either slate
going into the fray at Manhattan. The Cyclones poured on a 27-0
assault of the K-Staters to stay off the bottom.
Reynolds Misses Finale
Bobby Reynolds, who during his sophomore and Junior sea
sons played his best games against the Okiahomans, was side
lined from Saturday's game because of a charley-horse which de
veloped in practice last week prior to the Sooner contest. Her
alded an All-America halfback In 1950 as a sophomore, Rey
nolds has been hobbled by several different injuries during the
past two seasons. He is the only senior squad member in the of-

Seven other Huskers saw action for the last time against the
Sooners. They were linemen Kay Curtis, Carl Brasee, Ed Husmann,
Don Boll, George Prochaska and Verl Scott, and defensive half
back Jim Sommers. Halfback Jim Levendusky and center Dick
Goll will also be graduated from the squad this year,

their fifth consecutive Big Seven

It was the home finale for the
Sooners and they made it a
glorious ending by ripping the
rugged Husker line for 849
yards. Time after time Vessels,
fullback Buck McPhall and
halfback Merrill Green tore
apart the Nebraska forward
wall with their explosive run

candidate, got the Big Red off
to a fast start when he crashed
