Huskers Face Second
Loop Test Against OSU
By Dave Wohlfarth
Nebraska will travel to
Stillwater to meet its second
Big Eight opponent of the
year, Oklahoma State, Satur
day. A crowd of between 25,'
000 and 27,000 is expected for
the Cowpoke homecoming.
The Huskers, who opened
their conference play with a
24-0 victory over Kansas State
two weeks ago, will be seek'
ing revenge for last year's
7-6 defeat to the Cowboys.
The two teams have dis
played powerful offenses this
season, in contrast to last
year when both Nebraska and
Oklahoma State spent most
of their time on defense.
Nebraska leads the Big
Eight in total yards gained
with 965 yards, Oklahoma
State being in the runnerup
position with 951.
Thornton Challenged Again
Nebraska's Bill 'Thunder'
Thornton may face his second
individual battle of the year
this week against Jim Dil
lard, Cowboy left halfback.
Thornton, 200-pound Husker
left half, outdueled Syra
cuse's All American back,
Ernie Davis, despite NU's
28-6 loss to the Orange last
Saturday. Thornton gained
133 yards on 15 carries. Da
vis picked up 120 on 22 at
tempts. Thornton has gained 277
yards on 48 carries for the
Huskers this year and Dil
lard, hard running 205-pound
former fullback, has ground
out 319 yards on 47 carries.
Should Have Tied
Husker Scout Cletus Fisch
er, who scouted Missouri's
10-0 win over OSU last week,
said the Pokes should have
had no worse than a 3-3 tie.
The only Tiger touchdown
came on a deflected pass
which fell into the arms of a
Missourian who happened to
be running under it, Fischer
reported. Oklahoma State
kicked a field goal right be
fore the half ended but it was
nullified because the Cow
boys had too many men on
the field.
"They're big and they can
move the football," Fischer

He said that Nebraska
moved the ball well against
Syracuse except when pay
dirt approached.
"We made mistakes," he
said, "stopping ourselves with
a fumble, three passes that
were intercepted (one for a
49-yard TD) and a 15-yard
penalty after Jim Huge had
made a tremendous play to
nail Davis for a seven yard
He pointed out that while
you don't celebrate a 28-6
licking there was none of the
heavy gloom in the dressing
room after the game.
When one player was quot
ed as saying, "We feel we
are within inches of being a
good football team," Coach
Jennings said his staff would
have to agree to that.
"Had we been able to get
that first touchdown it could
very well have been a differ
ent ball game," he said. He
was recalling the first series
of plays after Nebraska took
the initial klckoff and moved
from its own 30 to the Syra
cuse 25 in four plays. A pass
interception on the Syracuse
two-yard line halted that
