UPI Honors Three
. Three Nebraska gridders
were cued Tuesday by Unit
ed Press International for
their oustanding work in the
upset win over Texas.
The trio of Huskers are
quarterback Pat Fischer, tac
kle Roland McDole and end
Don Purcell. Other Big Eight
players mentioned by UPI
were Kansas quarterback
John Hadl, Missouri
end Dan LaRose, Tom Smith
of Missouri and Larry Loush
Fischer was named to the
UPI Backfield of The Week
along with Hadl, Jake Gibbs
of Mississippi and Joe'Bellino
In picking their top linemen,
UPI said, "As usual in the
early games not many line
men stand out, but among
the top performers were
Purcell, LaRose and ... at
end . Other top linemen were
McDole, Loush, Smith and
Fischer scored both Nebras
ka touchdowns in the win
over Texas with one of the
TD's coming on a 76-yard
scamper with a Longhorn
punt. The Huskers quarter
back was also a part of the
two-point play that decided
the game as he pitched a pass
to Thunder Thornton for the
extra point following the sec
Purcell had the tough chore
of trying to contain the Texas
end sweeps and the Omaha
junior came through with
what was probably his best
game in a Nebraska uniform,
as he stopped the wide plays
for which Texas is noted.
McDole, one of Husker tri
captains along with Fischer
and Don Fricke, led the Ne
braska line that stopped the
Texas offense on numerous
occasions ' as the Long
horns tried to come from be

Bill Jennings sent his Husk
er gridders through Monday's
practice in sweat clothes as
preparations began for the
upcoming battle with Minne
sota at Memorial Stadium Sat
urday. "Minnesota has a real good
football team and we will
have to play belter than we
did against Texas if we are
going to win," Jennings
observed. The Huskers suf
fered no injuries in the Texas
contest and all hands were
ready to go Monday. '
In looking back at the
Texas game, Jennings pointed
out that whilfi Texas had a
slight edge in statistics such
as first downs and yards from
scrimmage, that the 83 yards
which Fischer chalked
up with punt returns was not
"Break those down and
you would find several first
downs, important ones to us,
but they don't show in the
statistics," Jennings said.

The Big Eight lived up to its pre-season billing as an
improved football conference and then some in Saturday's
grid warfare with Nebraska right at the head of the pack.
Five of the six Big .Eight teams in action pulled down
victories with three of the wins coming against the best the
Southwestern Conference flad to oner. Ne
braska's 14-13 win was the top victory for
the Big Eight coming against Texas, ex
pected to be number one in the Southwest
One Defeat .
Kansas with a 21-7 win over Texas
Christian and Missouri with a 20-0 white
wash win over SMU added to the Big Eight
prestige. The only blemish on the Big
eight record Saturday came from a 9-0 de
feat suffered by Oklahoma State at the
hands of Arkansas. Iowa State trounced
Drake,- 46-0, and Kansas State tripped South Dakota State,
20-7, in a couple of breathers.
Nebraska fans can be proud of the Big Eight after the
past weekend but the real pride should' come in the fact
that we are Cornhuskers. Bill Jennings summed up the
situation perfectly when a Texas writer asked him after
the Texas-Nebraska game if the outcome of Saturday's
games didn't give him special pride in the Big Eight.
"Right now, all I'm full of Is Nebraska pride," the
Husker head man replied. "Just Nebraska pride, not the
Big Eight." '
Nebraska's victory over Texas must rank close to the
upset of Oklahoma last year. Texas was rated the cream
of the 'crop in the Southwestern Conference and most pre
season experts had them ranked in the top ten nationally.
The Huskers have had tremendous upsets before such
as Penn State and Pittsburgh in 1958, and Oklahoma a year
ago but they still didn't manage to win more than they
lost. In past years the Huskers have been a team of ups
and downs but we don't believe that will be the case this
year and we certainly hope it isn't.
With tri-caplains Pat Fischer, Roland McDole and Don
Fricke leading the way, it is this corner's opinion that the
Huskers will be "fired up" most of the time and will not
sink to the lackadaisical depths that they slipped to against
Iowa State and Kansas State last year. "
Fischer at quarterback gives the Huskers their first
signal caller in several years with the ability to run the
ball and the Omaha Westside graduate has come a long
way with his passing since he moved into the quarterback
slot. In addition to his ability as a running threat. Fischer
also gives Nebraska some fiery leadership that will keep
the Huskers ready to play. ,
Bernie Clay, Clay White and Thunder Thornton could
well provide the Huskers with breakaway speed, a phase
of the attack that has been missing in past years. With
Thornton and Martin Nebraska Is well fortified at fullback
and the two fullbacks along with centers Mick Tingclhoff
and Fricke give Nebraska four of the best linebackers in
Linemen such as Jim Huge, Bill Comstock, George
Haney, Al Fischer, John Ponseigo, Darrell Cooper, Tyrone
Robertson, Gary Toogood, Dick Rosier, Roland McDole,
Bob Jones, Don Purcell, Pat Salerno, Fricke, and Tingel
hoff give the Huskers adequate protection up front.
Volney Meece, Oklahoma scribe, writing in the current
issue of The Sporting News says, "Nebraska joined the
shift-a-halfback-to-quarterback trend, moving Pat Fischer,
but there's no experience behind him. Other problems are
lack of experience at tackle and guard and a dearth of
speed at the halfbacks."
If Fischer continues at the pace he displayed in the
Texas contest the fact that he is backed up by two sopho
mores, Dennis Claridge and John Faiman, and Ron Meade,
a letterwinning Junior who played only 55 minutes last sea
son, shouldn't hurt the Nebraska offense.
Although Clay, White, and Clare don't possess the
speed of backs such as James Saxton and Jack Collins of
Texas, they do present Jennings with enough speed to make
the Huskers an exciting team this fall.
Jennings has called this team,- "The best since I came
to Nebraska." Hardly anyone will dispute this statement
with the Husker coach but the question is whether Ne
braska has improved more than teams such as Kansas and
Missouri. The Huskers could have beaten both clubs a
year ago if the breaks had gone the other way.
Nebraska got over a big hurdle Saturday with the win
over Texas and Husker fans will be anxiously awaiting
the Minneseota game and looking forward to the Big
Eight tilts to see if the Huskers have come up with a win
ner or if it will be as it has been in past years when Ne
braska would pull an upset over a major power one week
and then lose to a weaker team the following week.
We can only wait and hope but we feel that the opti
mism so evident in the Husker camp is well founded. Ne
braska could well become a strong cog in the national
football scene once again.
