Huskers Play Role Again
While Dropping Buffaloes
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
"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
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
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.

The big four of the Big
Eight completed a huge slum
clearance project of the con
ference's underprivileged ar
eas Saturday.
Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska
and Oklahoma displayed ob
vious superiority over Iowa
State, Oklahoma State, Colo
rado and Kansas State by
outscoring them 135-19, by
outdowning them 96-46 and by
outgaining them 1,861-874.
The Missouri Tigers de
feated Iowa State University,
21-6, even though the Cy
clones scored the first touch
down that has been scored on
the ground against the Ben
gals this season.
However, the Cyclone touch
down came with only five sec
onds left in the game and was
scored against the Tiger third
and fourth teams.
Mizzou's t i m e-consuming
ground game worked for 348
yards, including 131 by jun
ior ful' back Paul Under hill
and 104 by Johnny Roland.
Iowa State kept the score
down by intercepting three Ti
ger passes.
The Tigers completely dom
inated the first half, outrush
ing the Cyclones, 191 yards to
20. Missouri did not have to
punt until the final two min
utes of the contest.
Kansas beat OSU, 36-17, aft
er trailing, 17-7, at halftime
The Jayhawks gained the
amazing total of 539 yards in
the Stillwater encounter.
Gale Sayers ran for 283
yards, which will be a con
ference record, if approved
by the Big Eight.
The record set by Iowa
State's Dave Hoppmann, of
271 yards last year against
K-State may stand, as Say
ers set the record after he
was banished from the game
and re-entered the contest il
legally. The Oklahoma S o o n e r s
scored the first four times
they got the ball and rushed
past Kansas State, 47-0. The
booming Sooners gained 532
yards, although using their
first, team in only the first
and third quarters.
