Pelt Squads Win
Grant Leads Delt Team
To All-University Finals
By BOB ZUBER
Intramural Sports Writer
Delta Tau Delta climbed into the
finals of the all-University intra
mural football tournament Mon
day. The Delts blasted Sigma Al
pha Epsilon 25 to 6 to keep alive
their hopes of taking the football
championship. Things looked bad
in the half for the Delts as they
were on the short end of a 6-0
score. Then Dick Grant, hero of
the Delt victory over ATO started
to work. Grant threw a 20 yard
touchdown .pass to Dick Geier and
a 35 yard TD pass to Bob Burn-

reached the finals. The Phi Psis
suffered hard luck at tournament

ship last year the Phi Psis started
up where they had left off. They
went through the entire season
without a defeat, and it looked as
though the defending champs were

Phi Psis were left high and dry.

Spirited Huskers Determined
To Break Sooners' Monopoly
This is the week! The time has
come when this Saturday could
make or break the Nebraska Corn
huskers as they journey south to
meet the undefeated Oklahoma
Sooners in the Big Seven finale for
both elevens. This contest could
decide who will represent the Big
Seven New Year's Day in Miami.
If the Cornhuskers could salvage
a win, then they would cinch a first
place tie and the right to go. If
they should lose, their only hope
would be for Colorado to down the
Kansas State Wildcats. Currently
the Huskers hold down second
place with a 4-1 record, while the
Wildcats are in third with a 3-2
mark. However, if both teams
should finish with identical marks,
KS, on the basis of their 7-3 win
over NU October 9, would go.
Best Game Needed
"We will have to play our best
game oi tre year n we nope 10
beat the Sooners," were the words
of head coach Bill Glassford. Go
ing into this contest, Nebraska has
won 16, lost 14, and tied three
games against OU. The last NU
win was in 1942. One distinction
Gene Calame, first string
quarterback for the University
of Oklahoma's Sooners, will see
plenty of action against Ne
braska Cornhuskers this Satur
day at Norman.'It will be home
coming for the Sooners and NU
has won themselves the repu
tation as spoiler this season.
The Huskers ruined Colorado's
and Kansas's homecoming ar.d
have their sights set high in
racking up their third home
coming upset of the year.
Calame, an expert ball handler,
was injured earlier in the sea
son but will be ready to go full
blast against NU.

the Huskers hold is that of scoring
the most points against an OU
eleven. That was in 1950 when Ok
lahoma beat Nebraska 49-35. Bob
by Reynolds scored 23 points.
A Sooner win Saturday would be
the 18th straight win and their
'47th straight in Big Six and Big
Seven play. Also OU will be try
ing to score in its 96th straight
contest. Two sophomores are
among the veteran Sooner team.
Edmon Gray, first-string tackle,
and Jerry Tubbs, starting full
back. Last Conference Game
For the Huskers, their starting
backfield will be playing its last
conference game. With the ex
ception of Willie Greenlaw, Bob
Smith, Ron Clark, and Dan
Brown will be in their last Big
Seven game for the Scarlet and
Cream. Brown has quarterbacked
with deception and grace. He has
looked erratic in spots, but for the
most part he has handled the team
well. Smith is leading '.he team in
scoringwith 25 points. He is aver
aging 5n. at rushing. Clark, re
turning after two years f serv
ice, has been a brightispot in the
backfield all year. He has scored
18 points and is averaging 5.7 at
rushing. He is the game captain
Oklahoma's success has been in
their two lines. The bigy Sooner
forward wall has limited Iowa
State to 69 yards, Colorado to 105,
Kansas State to 93, Kansas to 37,
Texas to 57, California to 70, and
Missouri to a mere seven. They
have stopped such individuals as
Carrol Hardy to 12 yards, Corky
Taylor to a -3, and the nation's
leading offensive player, Paul Lar
son to a minus one.
Their seven wins have com
over caliiornia 27-13, tuu 14-7,
Texas 14-7, 65-0 over Kansas, 21-0
over KS, 13-6 over Colorado, Iowa
State 40-0, and Missouri 34-14.

Top Effort Needed Against
Nationally Med Sooners
Since the Nebraska victory over Colorado three weeks ago, there
has been much talk on the campus of the Cornhuskers going to the
Orange Bowl. This week that talk can either become a reality or will
have to be passed along as idle gossip. Saturday will prove who will
represent the Big Seven at the Miami classic, New Year s day. The
Huskers, with a conference mark of 4-1 journey to Soonerland, while
the other contender, Kansas State, will visit Colorado. This alone is
a big break for the Nebraskans. Regardless if NU loses, the whole
situation could rest on the CU-KS affair.
If the Buffs should down the Wildcats, as they are favored to do,
then regardless of the outcome of the Oklahoma tilt, the Huskers are
shoo-ins. But if the Wildcats should upset the hosts, then a Nebraska
victory over OU is imperative. Even if the Buffs could keep the
contest to a tie, then NU would go. So it shows now how crucial the
Kansas State-Nebraska game was. If the Huskers could have pulled
out the 7-3 loss, they would have nothing to worry about. As it is
now, the pressure is really great. Colorado and OU will be playing
the contest without any pressure at all. The Buffs are out of the
running, so they will not be burdened with the Bowl problem, and
the only thing the Sooners have at stake is their rating in the nation.
Currently they are No. 3.
Need Top Effort
Hopes art that the Huskers make a better showing in the Okla
homa game than they they have been looking in their last two outings.
It was apvarent that the Nebraskans should suffer a letdown after
two great wins, one over the Buffs and the other against Missouri.
But by the same token, the Huskers could have played a lot better than
they did. In the Kansas game, they didn't look too sharp at all, but
their tackling and blocking was of a better caliber than last Saturday.
I grant you that Pitt is a much tougher opponent than the Jayhawks,
but nevertheless, the. Huskers never should have missed some of
the tackles they did. Mentally they were below par. They weren't
thinking in the terms of winning. Maybe they were looking for the
OU tilt, or whatever the reason, they must improve, and fast. They
have to have that typical Nebraska spirit. One player that I extend
my hand to is LaVern Torczon, second team center. He was con
stantly in the middle of the Panthers all day. Only a sophomore, he
will be a bright spot for the Huskers next year.
Speaking of football and sophomores, look out for the Nebraskans
in years to come. This could very well be the beginning of fruitful
years for NU. Returning next year will be sophomores Willie Green
law, Don Comstock, Don Erway, Torczon, LeRoy Butherus, Bob Ber
guin, Al Deines, Harry Johnson, Jim Murphy, Jerry Peterson, and
Ted Westervelt, plus juniors John Edwards, Rex Fischer, Jack Braley,
Slyvester Harris, Dean Lux, Jon McWilliams, and Bill Taylor. Granted,
the loss of men like Ron Clark, Bob Smith, Dan Brown, Andy Loehr,
Charlie Bryant, Bob Oberlin, Don Glantz, Bob Wagner, Bill Holloran,
Dennis Korinek and Bill Giles will hurt the Cornhuskers, but with
that nucleus and a host of fine freshmen, the Nebraskans are going
to be a thorn in the sides of many opponents next year.
Big Seven predictions for the week:
Colorado 21-K-State 13 The Wildcats will have to be much sharper
than their record to pull this game out of the fire.
Missouri 28-Kansas 0 The Jayhawks will not crack the win column
Oklahoma-Nebraska The staff reserves the right to withhold any pre
diction at any time. The odds are against the Huskers, but
NU ias been pointing for this one. No matter which way the
game goes there will be a host of Nebraska rooters down at
Norman pushing the Huskers on. We hope for a Nebraska win!-
