Season Record Even
atistks Mean Little
When Hmkers Play CU
' Sports Staff Writer
Football fans, thrpw away the statistics and record books for
the Nebraska COrnhusk.s and Colorado Buffaloes meet again. Each
year when the two elevens have met, the Buffs have always been
heavy favorites at game time and each time the game has turned
out different. Take last year. The Buffs were riding on the strength
f three straight wins when they came to Lincoln. The final score
nded 14-10, the Buffy edging Nebraska in the final period.
Thirteenth Meeting
This will be the thirteenth meeting between the two elevens, NU
winning six, losing five, and the 1952 clash ending in a 16-16 deadlock.
This season the-Buffs are undefeated, having been scored upon by
only Arizona in four contests. They have rolled over Drake, Colorado
A&M, Sansas, Arizona and Iowa State. This game will be a must for
the Cornhuskers, as a Colorado loss will give them two setbacks in
conference play. If the Nebraskans could pull an upset, it will leave
them in a good position for their coming game with Missouri the
30th of October. On the other hand, a CU victory would put them in
the driver's seat for their all-important battle with Oklahoma the
following Saturday.
Sooners Still Supreme
Oklahoma again has dominated the Big Seven. The Sooners have
yet to be beaten in six years of conference play. The Oklahomans
opened their season by downing the California Bears 27-14, T.C.U.
was next on the schedule, and Bud Wilkinson's eleven edged the
Horned Frogs, 20-14. It was in this contest that the TCU captain
claimed he dropped the ball, when the referee said he caught it.
His act of good sportsmanship cost the Texans a touchdown and a
possible upset of the Sooners. Powerful Texas hosted the Oklahomans
in their third game, and the Sooners gained their third win of the
year 21-20. It was in this game that Gene Calame, star Sooner quarter
back, was injured and sophomore Jack Harris was forced into action.
The rookie quarterback had a hand in all three Oklahoma touchdowns,
scoring one, passing for another, and guiding the team to the third
score. Last Saturday they opened their league play, overwhelming
Kansas 65-0. This was the worst defeat in the history of the OU-KU
series, and one of the worst scores in league history. The Big Red
gained 536 yards rushing and 72 yards in the air, while holding
the Jayhawks to a mere 56 yards rushing and 27 yards passing. Even
though they will not be able to go to Miami, I predict that they will
finish the year unbeaten.
Tigerg Not Out
Along with Colorado, the other eleven who will fight it out for
the Orange Bowl will be the Missouri Tigers. The Tigers have a 2-2
record for the year and a 1-0 mark in conference play. They opened
their campaign, bowing to the Purdue Boilermakers 31-0, but followed
it with a Vin over the Kansas State Wildcats 35-7. SMU downed the
Tigers 27-0, and the Missourians rolled over the Indiana Hoosiers last
Saturday, 20-14. .
They have a veteran backfield, featuring their passing quarter
backs Tony Scardino and Vic Eaton. Scardino is a senior, having
made a big name for himself as a freshman, leading the conference
in passing. He was shelved most of his sophomore year with a broken
arm, and played behind Eaton last year. Jerry Schoonmaker is the
other backfield veteran along with all-Big Seven fullback Bob Mus
grave. ,
1 . Tough Assignment
Along with the Cornhuskers, another team with an outside chance
will be K-State. The Wildcats are currently tied for second place with
NUl The 'Cats have an identical 1-1 mark in the league, and their
Saturday meeting will almost have to be a must. A loss would put
them two down, with Missouri and Colorado left to play.
I-State and Kansas are definitely out of the running. Both elevens
have lost in conference only, the Cyclones to NU, and Kansas to
Colorado and IS.
My predictions in the Big Seven for this week are: Missouri 22
lowa State 0 Too much Scardino and Eaton for the Cyclone defense.
Kansas 0-SMU 21. The Jayhawks have yet to muster an offense,
and the Mustang contest will be no time to start. Oklahoma 27-Kansas
State 7. Taylor of KS will riot be able to' match the over-all strength
of the Sooners.
' Colorado 20-Nebraska 14 The difference will ride on the backs
of Hardy, Barnardi, Jenkins, and an unknown back named John
Bayuk. (BYE-ook). Remember that name. He is leading the nation in
rushing. ." . .

He is a senior from Sioux Falls,
S. D.
Clark, who gathered in the pig
skin and headed down the side
lines. At the Husker 45 Clark was
hit and lpst the ball. A big lines
man grabbed it and continued
down the field, getting to the Wild
cats' 17 yard line before being
brought ddwn.
But the runwhich put the Husk
ers within easy scoring distance
of the goal, was nullified by a
clipping penalty bafck in Nebraska
territory. The penalty put the
Cornhuskers clear back to their
own 12 yard line.
This was the big break of the
ball game, for had the run.been
allowed, Nebraska would have had
possession deep in K-State terri
tory and would probably have
scored to ice the game.
It Was Charlie
The hero of the play was Char
lie Bryant, 195 pound lineman who
always seems to turn up in the
right place at the right time.
Bryant, a senior, plays left
guard on offense and linebacker on
defense. He first lettered in 1953,
and this year turned out to be one
of the roughest and hustlingest
linemen in the conference.
Grappler Also
Charlie is also a member of the
Husker wrestling team. He has
lettered in that sport twice both
times in the 167 pound class. This
year he has added some weight
and will be vying for the Big Sev
en heavyweight crown.
Bryant was born and raised in
Omaha, where he attended South
High School. At South, Charlie was
an all-round athlete, lettering three
times in football and once each in
wrestling, track, and baseball.
During his senior year in high
school, Bryant was chosen All-City
and All-State guard in football, won
the Missouri Valley Conference
heavyweight wrestling champion
ship, and , qualified for the State
Track Meet in the mile. In addi
tion to this, he was a top-flight
catcher on the South baseball
team, j , f '
Charlie is majoring in Industrial
Arts. He plans to go into the
coaching field after he serves his
hitch in the Army. If he coaches
as well as he plays. Charlie Bry
ant is sure to turn out good foot
ball teams wherever he goes.

Nebraska's seldom used threat,
the pass, led the Scarlet and Cream
of NU to a convincing 27-7 romp
past the Beavers of Oregon State.
The Cornhuskers scored twice
via the air lanes, and set up a
third touchdown by passing. The
scoring passes went from Don
Erway to Bill Giles, and from
Harry Johnson to Dirkes Rolston.
The first period seemed to be
a re-enactment of the previous
games as Nebraska lost the ball
twice on fumbles while deep in
their opponents territory.
Korinek Runs
Denhis Korinek set up the first
Husker touchdown by returning an
Oregon State punt 45 yards to the
O-State 23. On the next play,
Erway and John Edwards, full
black, comKtied to present a beau
tiful faking act, with Erway keep
ing the ball and passing to End
Bill Giles who took the pass on
the five and went over standing
Nebraska's next touchdown came
in the third quarter with the Husk
ers marching 76 yards in six
plays for the TD. Three passes,
Greenlaw to Andy Loehr, Green
law to Clark, and Clark to Green
law accounted for 55 of the 76
yards made during this drive. On
the next play Bob Smith bullied
the .remaining 15 yards for the
second touchdown.
Edwards Rambles
After Oregon State had scored
their only TD of the game, the
Huskers came right back. On
probably the most exciting play of
the game, John Edwards went 84
yards to pay dirt. A couple of
nice blocks helped John along the
On what Coach Bill Glassford
stated as the best executed play of
he game, Dirkes Rolston scored
the fourth and final Nebraska six
pointer as he caught a pass from
Halfback Harry Johnson who had
in turn taken a pitchout from
quarterback Don Erway.
Although the Nebraska passing
attack looked great, it should be
noted that Oregon State had next
to nothing in pass defense. With
left handed throwing Willie Green
law in the first lineup the team
presents a formidable offense.
Coach Glassford didn't cite any
one particular player for special
praise, but rather gave praise to
every one of the 45 players who
got into the fray. t
Fisher Ready
The return of quarterback Rex
Fisher, who has been out all year
with a, leg injury should bolster
the offense of the Huskers. Al
though he will not start, Fisher,
if he is in physical shape, will
probably see plenty of action.
The Cornhuskers venture to
Boulder, Colorado to play the Buf
faloes this week-end. The Buffs
are so far undefeated after having
played Drake, Colorado A. and
M., Kansas, and Arizona. An in
teresting point of this game should
be the line play of the Buffs
against the line play of the Husk
ers. The Colorado team is one of
the top teams in the country in
total offense, and possesses the
leading rusher from scrimmage in
the person of 221 pound John Bay
They also possess a boy who was
picked jon many pre-seasoh Ail
American teams. His name is Car
roll Hardy, and he runs, passes,
and kicks equally well.
The main thing the Huskers have
to work on this week in prepa
ration for the Webraska-Colorado
game is defense.
