Injury Riddled Freshman
Impressive Despite K-State Defeat
Making their seasonal debut, the
Nebraska yearling squad bowed to
Ihe Kansas State freshmen last
Friday, 19-13. It was the junior
wildcats second contest of the
tear, iney downed Kansas, Ji-ia
n their initial start.
The Huskers were supposed to
be easy pickings for the Purple 'n
Vhite, but the freshemn led at
liarters, 6-0 and 13-12.
The name Charley Bryant is
becoming more and more un
pleasant for opposing lineman
that play against Charley. Again
last Saturday, Charley played
sterling ball to lead the Huskers
in their upset win over the Gold
en Buffs from Colorado. Charley
hasn't let up for one minute so
far durinc th entire season. He
is a senior guard from Omaha.

defeated with a shocking 20-6 vic
tory over the boys from Boulder.
The Buffs had up to this time
been undefeated and untied and
also been the leading yard gain
ing team in the nation.

Penalties figured into two of the
three K-State tallies. The first 'Cat

penalty. The visitors recovered a

line that made the NU victory
possible. The man that was do

ka after the game, one could have
quite easily thought that this was
Homecoming for the Huskers in
stead of for the Buffaloes.
Nebraska entered the game as a
14 point underdog but showed no
regard for the forecasters as soon
as the game started.
The ' Huskers first touchdown
came in the second quarter after a
90 yard sustained drive. Dennis
Korinek went the final two yards
to put the Huskers ahead 6-0.
Colorado quickly evened the
score by going 63 yards in two
plays. Carroll Hardy, Buff speed
ster, ran around his own right end
for the final 25 yards and the
touchdown. Colorado also missed
its try for the extra point, and the
score stood 6-6 at the end of the
Brown To Willie
Nebraska scored the first time
they got their hands on the ball
in the third quarter. Willie Green
law took a delayed pitchout from
quarterback Dan Brown and went
around his end for the first of Jus
two touchdowns. Bob Smith kicked
the extra point, and the score
stood Nebraska 13, Colorado 6.
Greenlaw's second touchdown
came on a 11 yard gallop with
8:36 left in the final quarter.
Don Erway kicked the extra point,
and the score stood 20-6, which
turned out to be the final score.
The most sensational play in the
game did not result in a score.
Willie Greenlaw recovered a wild
backward pass and ran 69 yards
into the end zone, but the officials
detected a clipping penalty, and
the ball was played on the Buff
35. However, the Huskers did go
on from there to score.
Singled out for praise in the
Colorado upset was Charlie Bry

The first Kansas tally was the
result of a 64-yard march. A 24
yard pass and a 23 yard aerial was
the main offense of the Wildcats
for their last tally.
The Huskers went out in front
6-0 in the first period of play.
Del Duca, freshman tackle recov
ered a State bobble on the Wild
cat three yard line. Two plays
later, Dick Prusia went over for
the score. The final Cornhusker
marker came in the third period.
Joe Sadowski, 205-pound guard in
tercepted a KS pass and moved to
the K-State 21. A pass interference
took the ball to the 11 where quar
erback Joe Smith went over for
the tally. This gave the Huskers
their last lead of 13-12.
Most encouraging to yearling
coach Bob Faris was the line play.
Despite the fact that their first
three tackles were injured, the NU
line held the K-Saters to 72 yards
rushing in the firs'; three quarters.
All togheter, 44 men saw action
for the freshmen. Coach Faris
ttarted Eldon Hoe 1 ting and
Stuart Howeter at ends; Del
Duca and Don Rhoda at tackles;
Bob Mclntyre and Joe Sadow
ski at guards; and Robert
Lyall at center. In the back
field Joe Smith was the starting
quarterback; Frank Nappi and
Keith Rapalje at halfbacks; and
Jerry Brown at fullback.
Huskers outrushed the visitors
186 to 114 and held an edge in
over-all offense, 201 to 161. Next
opponent for the Husker frosh will
be Iowa State.
