Hopes Against NU
By Dave Wohlfarth
Th Big Eight spotlight will be on Memorial Stadium this
Saturday when Nebraska meets the league leading Colorado
Buffaloes in a "must game"'for the Buffs.
Colorado, undefeated before falling before Utah last
weekend, is unbeaten In conference play but most beat Ne
braska and Iowa State to win the undisputed title. Also in
the picture is the trip to the Orange Bowl in Miami, on which
Colorado still has the firmest grip,
The Huskers, on the other '
hand, would like to be the
"spoiler" and upset the Buffs.
The Huskers have won three,
lost four and tied two snd
still have a chance for a win
ning season (5-4-1) if they can
whip Colorado and Oklahoma
in the final home games. The
underdog Huskers will have
nothing to lose and everything
to gain if they can knock off
the Boulder crew.
The Colorado attack is cen
tered on the aerial arm of
quarterback Gale Weidner,
the league's leading passer.
Weidner has completed 50 of
114 passes for 753 yards in
leading the Buffs to six wins
against one loss.
Big Wins
Coach Sonny Grandelius'
Buffaloes own important Big
Eight wins over Kansas (20-
19) and Missouri (7-6) and
appear to be headed for their
first conference crown.
Other Colorado standouts in
cluded Jerry Hillebrand, sec
ond in the conference in pass
catching with 11 receptions
for 239 yards, who doubles as
a place kick specialist (he is
also the second leading Big
Eight scorer with three TO
catches, eight PATs and three
field goals for 35 points).
Halfback Teddy Woods is
the Buffs' leading rusher with
281 yards gained on 68 car
ries. Woods broke Nebraska's
back last year with a 96-yard
kickoff return that gave the
Buffs the go-ahead TD in their
19-6 win.
Romig Leads Line
Ail-American right guard
Joe Romig heads the Buff
line corps. The 196-pound sen
ior has been an All-Big Eight
selection for two years and
excels as a linebacker on de
fense. Romig is considered by
many as the finest lineman
in Colorado history.
Husker Coach Bill Jennings
warned that, "The Buffs are
big, strong and fast and in
Gale Weidner they have the
Big Eight's top passer and
an Olvmpic sprinter in Teddy j
Woods." I

Meade's FG Important
Nebraska's three point vic

achieved on a 31-yard field
goal by senior quarterback
Ron Meade. The win marked
the fifth time in Meade's ca

margin of victory in a Husker

who has now tied the school
record with his career mark
of seven field goals tying the
mark set by Vic Halligan in
1912-14. Meade has connected
on 25 of 37 extra point at
tempts. He began his heroics in his
sophomore year (1959) when
he booted an extra point for
a 7-6 win over Oregon State,
kicked two PATs in the 14-12
win over Colorado and split
the uprights for two field
goals and a PAT in the Hus

Last year Meade kicked a
field goal and two extra
points in another upset win
over the Sooners, 17-14.
