NU Gridders Face Sooners
In Season Finale Saturday
. By Hal Brown
Nebraska will be out to
break a four-game losing
streak when the Huskers tan
gle with Bud Wilkinson's Ok
lahoma Sooners Saturday at
Norman, Okla.
Nebraska's last "win came
against Army by a 14-9 count.
Since then, the Huskers
have lost to Colorado, Mis
souri, Kansas, and Oklaho
ma State. A loss to the Soon
ers would leave the Huskers
with a five-game loss string,
matching the 1958 record of
five straight losses.
The Nebraska record for
consecutive losses came in
1957, Jennings' first year at
the Husker helm, when Ne
braska dropped its final sev
en games.
Nebraska hasn't scored
from scrimmage since the
Colorado defeat, and in two of
the last three games, the
Huskers have failed to cross
the opponents' goal. An 84
yard punt return by Pat Fis
cher gave Nebraska its only
score in last week's 7-6 loss
to Oklahoma State.
Oklahoma has a three
game loss string with the
last Sooner wjn being a '49-7
conquest of Kansas State. Ok
lahoma has lost to Colorado,
Iowa State, and Missouri in
its last three outings.
The Sooners are destined
for their first losing season
since 1942, when they finished
with three wins, five losses,
and. two ties. Oklahoma is
now 1-3-1 in the conference
and 2-5-1 overall.
The best Bud Wilkinson's
team can do is finish with a
3- 3-1 conference mark and a
4- 5-1 overall recorrd. To do
this the Sooners must defeat
Nebraska Saturday and Okla
homa State in their finale
next week.
Oklahoma will be out to
avenge last year's game with
the Huskers when Nebraska's
startling 25-21 upset ended
Oklahoma's 13-year reign in
the conference when the Soon
ers were unbeaten in 74 out
ings. The Sooners ground game
is led by fullback Ronnie
Hartline. Hartline ranks fifth

statistics with 548 yards on

Left halfback Mike McClel

ma's ball carriers with 228
yards on 45 plays. Oklahoma
ranks fourth in the confer
ence in rushing yardage with
1,803 yards, but the three
teams ranking ahead of the
Sooners, Iowa State, Kansas,
and Missouri, have all played
nine games. Oklahoma has
played only eight contests.

Carpenter ranks fourth
among Big Eight pass
ers with 20 completions on 30
attempts for 271 yards.
Nebraska's leading rush
er in total yards in quarter
back Pat Fischer with 341
yards on 88 carries for a 3.9
average. Thunder Thornton is
second with 327 yards on
86 carries for a 3.8 average.
Left halfback Pat Clare is
leading the Huskers in rush
ing average with a 4.6 yard
average. He has carried the
ball 37 times for 169 yards.
Fischer's and Thornton's
totals rank them 12th and
13th respectively among
Big Eight rushers. Fischer is
second among the confer
ence punt returners with 276
yards on 13 returns for a
21.2 average. Missouri's Don
nie Smith is first with a 28.8
average on eight returns.
Nebraska's Archie Cobb is
the third leading punter in
the Big Eight with a 39.5
average on 50 boots. Oklaho
ma State's Dave Hannah, and
Kansas' John Hadl are ahead
of Cobb in that department.
Oklahoma assistant coach
Bob Blaik, who scouted Ne
braska, said, "Nebraska has
a superb kicking game, a
rugged defense led .by center
Don Fncke, and an exciting
touchdown threat in quarter
back Pat Fischer.
"Fricke is as good a line
backer as I've seen all year,"
Blaik said.
"Fischer is an electrifying
back and a real tremendous
football player," the former
Army footballer said. "He
doesn't possess great speed
but he has a marvelous
change of pace and good foot
ball sense. He's a great competitor."
Blaik' also praised Thornton,
"He's: a.. real fine defensive
player. Despite their won-and-lost
record, Nebraska is
a tough, hard-nosed football
team. They'll come after you
all the way."
Since the series started in
1912, Oklahoma holds.! a two
game margin ; with 19 victor
ies., 17 losses, and three games
have ended, in a tie. Nebras
ka hasn't . won a game at
Norman since 1942, a. matter
of 18 years. The Huskers
of 1942, coached by Glenn
Presnell, took a 7-0 decision.

Sports Signals
By Hal Broun
When the 1960 football season began, nearly everyone
felt that it would be tough to win in the Big Eight confer
ence, but few people thought that Nebraska would finish as
low as seventh place.
Seventh place is where the Huskers are destined to
finish unless they can come up with a vic
tory at Norman, Okla., Saturday and that
seems almost out of the question after
looking at performances in the past four
games. Nebraska is currently 1-5 in the
conference while Oklahoma has a record
of one win, three loses, and one tie. Okla
homa State is 2-3 in the Big Eight.
The highest Nebraska can go is sixth
place and to do that they must defeat Okla
homa Saturday and get some help from
Oklahoma Stat. If Nebraska wins and
Oklahoma State loses to Colorado and Brown
Oklahoma in its final two games, then Nebraska and
Oklahoma State would be tied for sixth with 2-5 records.
If Nebraska wins Saturday and Oklahoma State wins
its two remaining games, then the Huskers would be in sole
posession of sixth place. Nebraska would be 2-5, and Okla
homa would be in seventh with a 1-5-1 mark.
If Oklahoma State defeats Colorado and loses to Okla
homa, then Nebraska would finish seventh regardless of
whether they win or lose Saturday at Norman. Nebraska
would be alone in sixth place if the Huskers win and Okla
homa State defeats Oklahoma, regardless of what the Cow
boys do against Colorado.
Now let's take a look at this week's games:
OKLAHOMA 20, Nebraska 7 The Sooners will be look
ing for revenge of last year's loss to the Huskers and will
get a win over an ofienseless Husker team.
IOWA STATE 29, College of Pacific 7 The Cyclones
haven't lost a non-conference contest in three years and
will make it 12 in a row against COP.
COLORADO 13, Oklahoma State 9 The Buffs have too
much for Cliff Speegle's defense-minded Cowboys.
ARIZONA 26, Kansas State 13 Kansas State has scored
seven points in each of its last four games. They should
score more than that Saturday, but will lose nevertheless.
MISSOURI 17. Kansas 14 The Jayhawks will give Dan
Devine and his Missouri Tigers a scare before bowing.
Syracuse over Miami (Fla.), Auburn over Florida Stat,
ClemsoB over Boston College, Colgate over Brown, Califor
nia over Stanford. Rutgers over Columbia, Yale over Har
vard, LSU over Wake Forest, Michigan State over Detroit,
Duke over North Carolina, Northwester over Illinois, Iowa
over Notre Dame.
Ohio State over Michigan, Oregon over Dartmouth, Pur
due over Indiana, Rice over Texas Christian, North Caro
lina State over South Carolina, Baylor over Southern Meth
odist, Kentucky over Tennessee, Washington over Washing
ton Slate, George Washington over West Virginia, Minne
sota over Wisconsin, Arkansas over Texas Tech.
Last week's record: 25 right, four wrong, one tie for an
.50 percentage. Season record: 192 right, S7 wrong, 11 ties
for a .732 percentage.
