.-If), T . - Page 4 The Daily Nebraskan Monday, October 29, 1962 Huskers Play Role Again While Dropping Buffaloes By RICK AKIN Sports Editor Nebraska's high riding foot ball team just can't stop playing the role of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It took a third quarter 23 point blitz by the fired , up Cornhuskers to overcome a 6- 0 halftime lead established by Colorado Saturday before 35,- 000 Homecoming fans at Fol som Field in Boulder. Among the 35,000 were ap proximately 11,000 Nebraska loyals who were kept on the edge of their seats due to the shoody first-half Husker performance until the come back in the action-p a c k e d third period to win, 31-6. Next week will be the cruc ial test for the Cornhuskers. Missouri, who beat Iowa State Saturday, 21-6, invades Cornhuskerland for the Home coming game. Missouri Next Concerning next weeks game, Missouri line coach Rollie Dotsch, who scouted the Huskers this week said, "I'd rather talk about it next week, but I think it is going to be a good ball game a case of offense against de fense. Nebraska is everything I thought it was, even though it was a little sluggish the first half." Coach Bob Devaney, NU mentor, said of the Tigers, "They have a hard, sound team, both offensively and defensively. They make very few mistakes and can play with anybody In the country We must play better next week to win." Superior line play was the difference m the game as Husker blockers continually opened holes for the speedy NU backs, especially in the second half. Buffs Not Enough The Buffaloes, now with a 1-5-0 record, needed more than the fine play of Leon Mavity, Ken Blair, and Frank Cesarek to thwart the Husk er machine wmcn continued to pile up yardage even though it failed to push the ball across the goal line when dropped passes, panalties and the CU defense retarded Ne braska's sixth straight win of the season. . For the second consecutive week the rushing game over shadowed the strong Husker passing game. The Buffs did a commendable job of de- fensing the Nebraska pass patterns as the Huskers 'We Win the Hard Way, But They Come'- Devaney Coach Bob Devaney sat out side the Husker dressing room with a bottle of pop after the Huskers' 31-6 win over Colorado and said, "Sometimes we win the hard way, but they come.". "Colorado ran more than they had in previous games," the Husker mentor continued. "They hurt us on traps, run ning wide and the screen pass." "I was disappointed in the first half." he said. "We would get inside of their 20 and they would tighten up." "They tried to take our wide stuff away from us, and we couldn't throw very well because they had our receiv ers well covered," he said. Concerning the second half change in the play of the Huskers, Devaney said, "We tried to run inside more and tried to hit intermediate zone passes. At halftime we try to regroup our forces." "I don't think we were looking ahead to Missouri," Devaney stated. "We know you can't beat anybody easi ly." On the play of Colorado, he said "They played well, es pecially on defense. They had scouted us pretty well." picked up only 75 yards via the air route of the 455 yards gained by the Cornhuskers in the course of the afternoon. The Husker third-quarter rally started about five min utes after the start of t h e second half as the Cornhusk ers took advantage of breaks which they failed to do in the first half. Symonds Fumbles Buff cophomore halfback Bill Symonds fumbled on his own 28-yard line where J i m Huge, NU right end, gobbled it up to put the Huskers in scoring range. On the first play Rudy! Johnson, right half, whizzed off left tackle, followed h i s blockers beautifully and with the help of his great speed went into the end zone. John Faiman put the Husk ers ahead for the first time, 7-6, by making good on his conversion attempt. CU Threatens Colorado looked as though it was going to regain the lead after the NU score but as the Husker defense dug in the Buffaloes were forced to punt after holding the ball for ten plays. Taking the ball on its own 20, NU went the route to pay dirt in only six plays. j Dennis Claridge, NU's sen sational quarterback, capped the march with a 30-yard scamper around left end into the end zone. Denny Scares Crowd Claridge had Nebraska on lookers in a tizzy for a split second during his touchdown run when he juggled the ball at the 15. But he regained control of the ball and went into the end zone without breaking stride. Faiman's kick was no good which left the Huskers with a 13-6 lead. A bad break for the Buffs set up the next Husker points. Mavity, who led the Buffaloes all afternoon with his run-: ning, pass receiving and de-j fensive play, let the ball slip out of his hands on his own 24. The ball rolled to the two- liPem m&m yard line before Colorado could regain possession of the slippery pigskin. In attempting to pass, Ce sarek, CU's promising sopho more quarterback, was snowed under by big Larry Tomlinson two plays later in the end zone to give the Husk ers two more points and forc ing the Buffaloes to kick from their own 20-yard line. Willie Paschall, who played a fine game both offensively and defensively, grabbed Ken Blair's kick on his own 40 and scampered to the CU 25 before being hauled down. Claridge to Comstock Five plays later Claridge rifled a pass to Bill Com stock who grabbed the ball and tightroped his way into the end zone to make it, 21 6. The play of the day came on the conversion attempt. Faiman lined up to boot it through the uprights, but the snapback whizzed over h i s head to the thirty. (Faiman appeared to not realize the ball had gone over his head as his eyes were on the spot where the ball was to be placed. But he ran back, picked up the ball, fended off a Buff tackier and threw a pass to Dick Callahan who had strided into the end zone for a two- point conversion instead of the intended one. NU Scores Again The Huskers picked up one more touchdown in the fourth quarter led by the running of Gene (Truck) Young. He went into the end zone with 52 seconds left from the two. The first half was a see saw battle with Nebraska blowing two chances of scor ing. Colorado made the only score of the half when Cesar ek threw a screen pass to Mavitv who carried the ball 27 yards to the NU six. Symonds scored the touch down bv slamming off left tackle. Dave Theisen blocked the attempted conversion.
