Un beaten String at 74
By Hal Brown
Nebraska reigns as king of
the upset world again after
a stunning upset of 0 k 1 a
homa's mighty Soohers, 25-21.
The Husker athletic teams
may not have compiled out
standing won-lost , records in
the past three years but they
certainly lead the c o 1 1 e-g e
sports kingdom , with upset
It startedtwo years ago
with basketball victories over
Kansas and Kansas State
within a period of 10 days.
Kansas and Kansas State
were the number one and two
teams in the country before
Nebraska turned the tables.
Last fall, the battling Hus
kers became the football
champions of Pennsylvania
with upset victories over
Penn State In the season
opener and then surprised
Pittsburgh later in the sea
son.. Penn State and Pitts
vurgh were both highly
rated Eastern powers.
But all these prior upsets
had to take a back seat to
Saturday's victory over Okla
homa for a number of rea
sons. It was the first victory
for a conference team over
Oklahoma since 1946, a string
of 74 games. Kansas scored
a 16-13 win over the Sooners
in '46.
Bud Wilkinson replaced
Jim Tatum as coach after
that season, and the only
blemishes on his record until
Saturday were two ties, one
with Kansas in 1947. and one
with Colorado in 1952. The
Sooners had won 44 consecu
tive conference games sinca
the 21-21 tie with Colorado.
It was the first Nebraska
victory over Oklahoma since
1942 when the Huskers de
feated Oklahoma 7-0 at Nor
man for the last win by a
conference team at Norman.
The win was also the first
Big Eight victory of the sea
son for Nebraska after losing
to Kansas and Missouri. ,
The victory was doubly
precious since it was the Hus
ker homecoming and was the
first homecoming in two
years that the grads have
had something to cheer about.
Losing String
It was only the second time
this season that Nebraska
had scored more than one
touchdown, the other time be
ing a 32-12 romp over Min
nesota. The win over Okla
homa broke a three-game
Husker losing string which
included Indiana, Kansas and
The 25 points was the most
scored by a Nebraska team
against Oklahoma since the
1950 game when the Sooners
won a 49-35 scoring bee in a
game which developed into
a personal dual" between all
americans Bobby Reynolds of
Nebraska and Billy Vessels
of Oklahoma.
The Huskers trailed Okla
homa in first downs 19-8, in
rushing 240-127 yards, in pass
ing 100-34 yards but Nebraska
was not outfought before a
homecoming crowd of 34,000.
It was evident in the final
few minutes that thetire d
Huskers were going almost
completely on desire as they
had Oklahoma quarterback
Bobby Boyd rapped for a loss
several times but didn't quite
have the strength to bring
him down.
But with their bftcks. to the
wall and Oklahoma going all
out to score the winning
touchdown in the last sec
onds, Nebraska's valiant Hus
kers rose to the occasion.
They stopped the Sooners with
Ron Meade's interception of
a Bobby Boyd pass in the
end zone. Only seconds re
mained, and it preserved the
upset victory.
The intercepted pass gave
Nebraska the ball on their
own 20-yard line. Meade
took plenty of time calling
the play and kept the 'ball,
falling forward for a couple
of yards to eat up the clock.

NEBRASKA TOUCHDOWN Husker end Dick McDaniel (89) gathers In a pass from Harry Tolly (arrow) for the first
Husker TD In their 25-21 upset victory over Oklahoma. Other Huskers in the picture are Don Purcell (82), Pat Fischer
(40) and George Haney (71). Number 32 is Oklahoma's Brewster Hobby.
Before another play could be
run off, the gun sounded and
Nebraska had a well-earned
25-21 triumph.
The whole Nebraska team
was responsible for the vic
tory and to single out any
one star is impossible. Ron
Meade's two field goals and
one extra point boot were
vital. Harry Tolly's punting
and play-calling was superb.
It was a Tolly punt which
rolled dead on the Oklahoma
four-yard line that set up the
third Nebraska touchdown
giving them a 21-14 lead with
five minutes gone in the final
After Boyd picked up six
yards for Oklahoma, Wahoo

Fischer on the Nebraska 35

It took Nebraska three plays
to move the ball into the end
zone. Meade converted for

Zentic Scores
LeRoy Zentic came up with
what every lineman dreams
about when he fielded a bad
punt and returned it 36 yards
for a touchdown.
The Huskers have three
conference games remaining
as the season draws to a
close. They travel to Iowa
State for an encounter with
Clay Staple ton's "Dirty
Thirty," Saturday. The Hus
kers will host Colorado in a
Parent's Day game, Nov.
14, before ending the season
against Kansas State at Man
hattan. .
Freshmen Complete
Undefeated Season
For the second year in a
row, the Nebraska freshman
football team rolled to an un
defeated season.
Friday's 19-0 victory over
Kansas State at Manhattan
was the season finale for the
Huskers and coupled with a
win over Iowa State gave
them a 2-0 record.
The Nebraska defense held
the Wildcats to only 14 yards
in total offense. All 14 yards
came by rushing. The Husk
ers ground out 280 yards
rushing and passing.
Kansas State attempted 10
passes, completing none while
the young Huskers made good
on 7 of 19 attempts.
The first Nebraska score
came in the second quarter
when Odell Parker fell on a
blocked punt in the end zone.
Dick Strutz added the extra
point to make it 7-0 at half
time. .
Nebraska scored twice in
the fourth quarter to com
plete the rout. A 22-yard pass
play from John Faiman to
Gary Larsen was good for six
The final touchdown came
on a 43-yard run by Jim Ip
polito after taking a pitchout.
Nebraska Is Back
In Bowl Picture
Nebraska's upset victory
over Oklahoma, Saturday,
puts the Huskers back in the
Orange Bowl picture as a
darkhorse candidate.
Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa
State, Missouri and Colorado
are above Nebraska in the
conference standings with all
of them except Oklahoma
having a shot at the bowl
berth. The Sooners are ineli
gible, so the runnerup team
will make the trip.
If Nebraska wins their re
maining three games with
Iowa State, Colorado and
Kansas State, and if Kansas
loses one of their two remain
ing games with Colorado and
Missouri, the Huskers and
Jayhawks would be tied with
4-2 records.
It could be a three-way tie
with Missouri, Kansas and
Nebraska if Missouri defeats
Kansas State and Kansas.
The only way Nebraskca
can win a clear-cut claim to
the title is to win its three
remaining games, while Kan
sas loses to Colorado and

Missouri. Missouri would also
have to lose to Kansas State.
It is a complicated process
bat here is a week-by-week
rundown on what would nave
to happen:
Weekend of Nov. 7 Nebras
ka must defeat Iowa State
and Kansas must lose to Colo
rado. Missouri plays a non
conference game with the Air
Force Academy.
Weekend of Nov. 14 Ne
braska has to win over Colo
r a d o. Kansas plays Okla
homa State which does not
count in the conference stand
ings. Missouri has to lose to
Kansas State.
Weekend of Nov. 21
Nebraska would need a vic
tory over Kansas State and
Missouri would have to de
feat Kansas.
