Gndders Stun Texas;
Face Minnesota Next
By Hal Brown
Nebraska, a' team that has
pulled more major upsets in
the past three years than any
school in the country, turned
giant-killer again Saturday
night with a 14-13 victory
over heavily-favored Texas
at Austin.
The victory was the second
opening-game upset' for the
Huskers in the past three
years under Bill Jennings.
Nebraska - toppled a potent
Penn State team, 14-7, in the
1958 opener and later in the
season laid claim to the title.
"Champions of Pennsylvan
ia" with a 14-6' surprise win
over Pittsburgh
Looking Ahead '
Saturday night's victory
ranks with last year's stun
ning . 25-21 triumph over
Oklahoma but the Huskers
made it plain after the" game
that they - weren't going to
rest-on their laurels -as talk
swung to the upcoming bat
tle with Minnesota at Memor
ial Stadium Saturday.
Jennings; shouting to be
heard over the noise in the
dressing room .at Austin re
minded the jubilant Huskers,
"Forget this game,, we've got
Minnesota next week." Don
Purcell, junior end from
Omaha who did an excellent
job of stopping the Longhorn
end sweeps, was also looking
to Saturday's game, "After
we beat Minnesota we'll be
right up there among the
best."
Co-captain Don F r 1 c k e,
back at his center slot after
a year at fullback, summed
up the player's feelings,
"We're not going to live on
just one game. We've got
Minnesota next week and
we're going on down the
line."
The win over Texas gives
Nebraska a 2-1 edge over the
Longhorns in the series. Ne
braska won the first game by
a 26-0 count in 1933 and Texas
b'anked the Huskers a year
ago, 20-0.
Pat Fischer, making his
debut at quarterback a suc
cess, scored both Husker
touchdowns and was on the
pitching end of the two-point
play for the conversion after
the second Nebraska TD.
LongRunback ""
Fischer gathered in a punt
from Bobby Nunis on the
Husker 24-yard line and raced

second quarter after Texas
had taken a 7-0 lead in the
opening stanza. Ron Meade,
who made good on nine of 12
extra point attempts last
year, tailed this time as his
boot was off to the left.
Nebraska scored what
proved to be the winning
point on a trick play after
the Huskers had driven 35
yards in 10 plays for their
second TD with 12:13 gone in
the third quarter. Leading
12-7 Meade entered the game
arid Nebraska lined up for a
placement with Fischer on
one knee to receive the snap
back. As the snap came back
from center Fischer stood up
and hit Thunder Thornton in
the end zone with a pass for
two points to make the score
14-7 in favor of Nebraska.
The winning drive started

With Fischer, Thornton,
Clare and Bernie "The Bolt"
Clay carrying the mail Ne
braska drove goalward.
Fischer picked up two and
after a fumble netted one
yard the 166-pound quarter
back from Omaha went back
to pass but when he saw all
h i s receivers covered he
tucked the ball under his arm
and scampered 16 yards for
a firs' down on the Texas 16
,vard line.
Thornton then picked up
fcur yards, Clare added four,
and Thornton came back for
two more and a first and
goal situation on the six-yard
line. Clay gained three to the
three-yard marker, Thornton
added one and Clay gained
one more yard.
Fischer Scores
With fourth down and one
yard to go Fischer kept the
ball and reached paydirt for
his second TD of the game.
Texas drove 73 yards for
their second touchdown on 18
plays with quarterback Mike
Cotten pushing his way over
from the two-yard line with
7:47 remaining in the game.
The Longhorns decided to
go for two points and a win
rather than one point and a
tie but the Nebraska line
stopped Cotten on the one
yard line to preserve the 14-13
Husker lead.
Texas threatened once
more as they drove to the
Nebraska 13-yard line with
1:38 remaining but with a
first and ten on the 13 Cot
ten slipped as he went back to
pass with Bill Comstock in
close pursuit for a loss of
nine yards. Another pass at
tempt was knocked down by
Thornton.
After fullback Ray Poage
gained five to the 17 the Long
.lorns sent Ray Barton in for
a field goal attempt but his
kick was short and to the left
nt the goal posts and Nebras
ka took over at the 20 with
less than a minute remaining
on the clock.
Meade Keeps
Junior quarterback Meade
replaced F'ischer and ran two
plays into the center of the
Longhorn line to run out the
clock and give the Huskers
the win.
Texas picked up their open
ing touchdown after driving
:t0 yads the second time they
got the ball. The Longhorns
received the kickofff and after
an exchange of punts, they
took over on their own 20.

Fischer Enjoys Openers
Pat Fischer is making long runbacks in opening games
a habit. In the last three opening games he has run back
punts or kickoffs for more than 75 yards in each game.
Against Penn State two years ago he ran back a kickoff
for 92 yards and a touchdown, and last year a clipping
penalty nullified a 94-yard ; punt return against Texas.
Saturday night he ran a punt back to 76 yards for a TD.
The Texans needed 18 plays j
plays to cover the 80 yards
with Cotten going the final six
for the TD. Barton added the
extra point to give the Long
horns a 7-0 lead with 10:47
gone in the opening quarter.
SIDrXIGUTS The Ne
braska defense held Texas
without a first down in the
third quarter.
Archie Cobb handled t h c
punting for Nebraska with
seven kicks totaling 267 yards
for a 38.1 average. Harry
Tolly averaged 36.4 yards per
punt on 53 boots during the
1959 season. Three Texas
punters averaged 36.8 yards
per punt.
The win gives Bill Jen
nings 2-2 mark in opening
games. His teams have lost
In Washington State and Tex
as in openers and have de
feated Penn Slate and Texas.
