Staff Sports Writer
A total of 39,000 Nebraska foot
ball fans, yesterday saw the Corn
busker football team defeated 26-9
in a game marred by fumbles,
pass interceptions and ragged ,de
iense. The Orangemen of Syracuse lost
no time in displaying their offen
sive talent which has them rated
high among the nation's best foot
ball teams. As they marched from
the opening kickoff to the Nebras
ka goal line and crossed into pay
dirt for the first score of the game.
Lasse kicked the conversion for
the Orangemen and they led 7-0
with 4:06 gone in the ball game.

a pass interception by Gene San
dage on a beautiful diving catch
between two enemy receivers had
squelched the bid on the two yard
line. Then on two quarterback
sneaks, Stinnett had moved the
ball out to the 16 yard line for
a first and 10. Naviaux ripped off
13 yards to move the ball up to
the 29 yard line and another first
down. An offside penalty was re
gained when Jerry Brown moved
the ball again to the 29 yard line.
But the move ended here when
Stinnett fumbled the ball and the
Syracuse squad recovered on the
27 yard line. From here Tom
Stephens took over for the Orange
and drove his way down to the
seven yard line of the Scarlet. On
the next play Chuck Fogarty
slipped into the endzone to put the
Syracuse team back in front and
they never again were threatened.
A bad pass from center fouled up
the conversion try and the Huskers
again trailed 13-9.
After a series of exchanging
punts the Huskers regained the
football and started what looked
to be a touchdown drive. The drive
ended abruptly when a Husker

Ben Schwartzwalder said the Ne

the Orange, 7-7. Schwartzwalder
went on to praise the Cornhuskers
for their line work.

and that makes it tough."
