First Half Splurges
Shock 38,000 Fans
Sports Editor
Kansas football followers
ha3 their sunflowers for
Homecoming last Saturday,
and nearly all of them plan
ned to put them on the grave
of Nebraska's Big Eight title
But the flowers began to
wilt as 38,000 fans sat in awe
while the Cornhuskers were
rolling up an impressive vic
tory, 40-16, to stay within
range of the Orange Bowl.
With a 7-1 record the Husk
ers played clean football mi
nus the costly fumbles, inter
ceptions and penalties of the
previous week in a dismal
showing against Missouri.
Next week the Huskers
were supposedly going to
have a "vacation" against
Oklahoma State before the
last game of the season
against Oklahoma.
O-State Wins
But Oklahoma State whip
ped Army, 12-7, last Satur
day, which rules them out as
a pushover.
It was simply a question of
the Cornhuskers getting the
jump on the Jayhawks whose
defensive line left much to be
Nebraska simply kept driv
ing into the middle and left
side of the KU line to roil
up a 32-0 halftime lead, leav
ing the Kansas boys in be
wilderment and literally no
chance for a comeback vie
Not Much Passing
The passing game, which
had been the NU forte, early
in the season, was used very
little as the Huskers threw
only three passes through the
entire game.
Willie Ross led the tremen
dous rushing game by scor
ing three touchdowns on runs
of four, 26, and 32 yards in
carrying the ball 12 times for
111 yards.
The Nebraska defense also
had a big hand in the offensively-minded
Sayers Gains 107
Gale Sayers, Omaha Cen
tral product, was held to 107
yards in 15 carries after roll
ing up 200 plus yards several
times this season.
The defense also thwarted
any Kansas momentum by
forcing a fumble and inter
cepting a Jayhawk pass in
the explosive first period.
The main Jayhawk offen
sive threat was through the
air as it gained 149 yards
much of which was in the
last period.

Ross Scores
Bill (Thunder) Thornton,
Gene Young and Dave Thei

through the right side and
cut to the outside, following
his blockers beautifully, to
score the second Nebraska
TD with 1:56 left in the first

After the kickoff Roger Mc

guard tipped the ball into the
hands of Doug Tucker, who
played his best game of the
season, who ran the ball back
26 yards to the Kansas 16.
Denny Scores
Four plays later Nebraska
had its third score of the con
test as Claridge jumped over
the center of the line from
the one on the first play of
the second quarter.
This time it was Thornton
who slipped over for the two
point conversion.
And once again the Husk
ers scored the next time they
had the ball.
McCloughan's Turn
Kent McCloughan got his
revenge on Sayers as he
knifed for 14 yards before
turning on the speed from the
20 and scoring two plays lat
er. Thornton picked up anoth

11 minutes left in the half.
Nebraska had another
strong drive going late in the
half, but after the Huskers
threw their three passes for

was complete), the drive

Once Again
Even though the Huskers
had a commanding lead,
they marched for their final
touchdown after the opening
Starting for the KU 27, NU
promptly inarched to paydirt
in 11 plays as Ross capped
the drive with 9:18 left in the
third quarter on a 26-yard
A Claridge-to-McCloughan
pass ended the scoring for
the Huskers as the two com
bined for the two-point con
version. Too Late for KU
Kansas outplayed Nebraska
statistically in the second
half, but it was just too late.
The Jayhawks scored with
4:58 remaining in the third
quarter as McFarland threw
to Armand Baughman, who
made a beautiful catch, for
the TD. McFarland ran into
the end zone, for the two
point conversion.
Closing out the scoring
with 2:08 left in the game,
Kansas started on its own 21
and completed the drive with
a 15-yard scoring pass from
Brian Palmer, a third string
quarterback, to end Andy
Graham. Ll&d Buzz skipped
over for the two-pointer.
Both of t'se Kansas scores

Melton's Rampaging Freshmen End Season
With Help of Lebsach's Arm in 33-0 Victory
Nebraska's freshman foot
ballers wrapped up their sec
ond victory and their season
last Friday with a 33-0 trounc
ing of Iowa State at Ames.
The Husker yearlings had
previously shut out the Kan
sas State frosh, 31-0. The Cy
clones had been stopped, 21-0,
by Missouri earlier in t h e
Coach John Melton's year
ling defense proved too much
for the Cyclone squad and
the most impressing factor
of the game. The Huskers
held Iowa State to a mere
117 yards.
NU's offensive was sparked
by the passing arm of Lin
coln's Dave Lebsack. Lebsack
connected with 9 of 14 at
tempts for 129 of the Huskers
total 294 yards.
Jeter, White Snare
Tony Jeter and Fremean
White, top end prospects,
were Lebsack's number one
and two targets. Jeter
grabbed three for 59 yards
while White, 6-5 Detroit pro
duct, snared four for 42 yards.
The winning frosh managed
to score twice in the first
period and added one score
in each following frame.

Big Eight
Sports Staff Writer
The Big Eight Conference's
big four became only three
Saturday, as the Scarlet and
Cream's true colors streameu
from the Husker halyard at
Memorial Stadium, Lawrence,
and the Huskers eliminated
the Kansas Jayhawkers from
championship contention with
a 40-16 win Saturday.
Visiting Husker fans were
delighted to hear Jayhawk
fans say: "Kansas has never
been so ineffective. Nebraska
is good. We're all for NU.
They should get a bowl bid."
The Huskers gained no
ground on Oklahoma and Mis
souri, however, as both
clubs remained undefeated in
league play.
Oklahoma had no difficulty
with Iowa State, defeating
them, 41-0, at Ames. All that
need be said about the Soon
ers' effectiveness is that
they scored the first s i x
times they got the ball and
led at halftime, 35-0.
Missouri had even less
trouble with Colorado, beat
ing them. 57-0, at Columbia.
Johnny Roland carried the
ball only eight times, but
scored three touchdowns.
The Oklahoma State C o w
boys distinguished themselves
and the Big Eight by out
inarching the Cadets of West
Point. 12-7. The Cowpokes
had been a three-touchdown
The Cadets scored on a 40
yard run by Ray Waldrop in
the first five minutes, but
the Cowboys came back with
two touchdowns in the second
quarter to complete the up
set. State's first touchdown
came on a 24-yard pass
thrown by the Big Eight's
leading passer, Mike Miller.
The winning touchdown came
after Tommy Jackson inter
cepted a pass on the Army
40 and ran to the Cadet 9.
The Kansas State Wildcats
almost escaped a winless sea
son, but they lost to Arizona,
14-13. Kansas State lost when
