Cowboy Offense Gives Huskers
Additional Defending Problems
With his main worry being
Oklahoma State, Coach Bob
Devaney has begun to send
his charges through prepara
tions for the important B i g
Eight encounter with the Cow
boys Saturday in Lincoln.
Nebraska has never beaten
the Oklahoma State who are
fresh from a win over Army,
which was the top team in
the East prior to last Satur
day. "Oklahoma State presents
us with additional defensive
problems with their various
pro-type offenses," said De
vaney. "They have the best
passing attack that we have
faced to date, and for the
first time this season they are
at full strength and are fresh
from the victory over Army."
Can't Make Mistakes'
"If we are to win, we can't
make mistakes or have
lapses," the NU coach con
tinued. "We are apprehensive
about the outcome of this
Oklahoma State has the top
passer in the Big Light in
Mike Miller, who has c o m
pleted 63 passes in 133 at
tempts. NU opponents have com
pleted 55 of 124 passes for
660 yards.
Fischer Scouts O-State
Cletus Fischer, who scouted
the Cowboys against Army,
said, "They have confidence
in their passing game. They
come from behind a 7-0 de
ficit to win from Army and
don t forget that Oklahoma
State was ahead of Kansas,
14-0 and 17-7, before losing."
Fischer also pointed out that
the Pokes used three units in
NU Offense
Ahead Again
Nebraska's come-back foot
ball team with its convincing
40-16 victory over Kansas last
week is currently leading the
Big Eight offensive average
with 365.8 yards per game.
JNeorasKans win nave a
close eye on Oklahoma State's
Mike Mi!' , current leading
passer, when the Huskers
meet the Cowboys Saturday.
Miller hit seven of nine in the
Oklahoma State stunning 12-7
upset of Army last week and
has completed 63 of 133 for 867
yards for the season.
In other departments, NU's
Willie Ross is seventh in rush
ing while Dennis Claridge,
who threw for only 11 yards
last week, is third in passing.
Oklahoma, only fourth in
total offensive having played
one less game, stands behind
the Huskers with a 351.0 yard
average and Kansas dropped
to 343 for third. Missouri is m
fourth place with a 317.9 yard
Gayle Sayers, who gained
107 yards against NU in 15
carries boosted his league
leading rushing total to 972
yards in 129 trips. Missouri's
John Roland is running sec
ond with 787 yards for 131
carries followed by Don Loon
ey of Oklahoma who has 707
yards Tn 95 assignments.
Jim Huge stands fifth in
pass receiving having snared
12 aerials for 219 yards. In
scoring Claridge follows John
ny Roland and Dave Hoppman
of Iowa State with 56 points.
Roland and Hoppman have 78
and 60 respectively.
the win over the Cadets.
The Huskers have often
times been able to wear other
teams down with more depth
than the opponents.
Theisen a Question
Only one player, Dave Thei
sen, is on the injury list this
week. Theisen injured his
thigh on a punt return last
Saturday when he was hit
with a crunching tackle from
KU's Brian Scweda.
Devaney indicated that hej
would not know about Thei
sen's condition for Saturday
until tonight.
Bill (Thunder) Thornton
and Dennis Stuewe are now
running with the first unit.
Both are running the best
they have since the Michigan
Warren Powers, who
started at fullback last week,
is now running with the al
ternate unit at left half. The
switch was made mainly to
compensate for the injury to
After viewing the films,
Devaney pointed out that
while Dennis Claridge did not
add to his personal statistics
in the Kansas game, he did
the best job of the year in
faking and handling the ball.
The Husker mentor had
praise for guard Bob Brown.
"He was opening holes and
stopping KU rushes with real
effectiveness," Devaney said.

This Week's Big Eight Games
Sooner-Tiger Showdown
Sports Staff Writer
The Big Eight Conference
seems to have scheduled the
finals of its championship
elimination before the s e m i-
The Missouri showdown
with Oklahoma this Saturday
would more appropriately fol
low the two contests of No
vember 24 Missouri plays
Kansas and Oklahoma meets
The winner of this Satur
day's Norman encounter must
still win the following week
to stand alone atop the final
conference standings.
The battle for the Orange
Bowl bid will involve two
teams long known for their
stress on fine defensive play.
Sooners Hold
The Sooners have held sev
en opponents this season to
an average of only 4.5 points
per game, and Bud Wilkin
son's Okies can boast of
blanking the Missouri Tigers
three of the last four times
they have met.
If the Sooner defense fol
lows the pattern it has estab
lished thus far this season, it
will hold Missouri's soph
omore rusher, Johnny Roland,
to 23 yards rushing Saturday.
The Sooners held Iowa State's
Dave Hoppmann and Kansas'
Gale Sayers to 23 yards each
earlier this season.
Mizzou has not been very
generous this year either, al
lowing eight opponents to
score a total of just 36 points.
The Tiger's first two. teams
have not permitted an oppon
ent's offense to score on the
ground this season.
These two bowl-seeking
teams are not without of
fenses, however.
Strong Backs
The Bengals have the Big
Eight s leading scorer in Ro
land, and two powerful full
backs, Andy Russell and Paul
Underhill, who prevent the
opposition from setting their
defense for Roland's sweeps.
The Okies counter with
quarterback Monte Deere and
halfback Joe Don Looney.
Deere, who had been used
mainly on defense until this
year, has been operating the
Sooners with increased effec
tiveness the past few weeks.
Deere completed nine of 13
pass attempts last week
against Iowa State.
Looney a Transfer
Looney, a junior college
transfer who was not listed
on the Oklahoma pre-season
roster, is a 207-pound Texan
who has run the 100 yard dash
in 9.7 seconds.
In other Big Eight action,
the third title contender, Ne
braska, plays Oklahoma State
in Lincoln. The Huskers must
win, but the pressure is off
the Cowboys who will be try
ing to make it two upsets in
a row after their unexpected
victory over the Cadets of
West Point.
The Kansas State Wildcats
entertain Iowa State and
should present the Cyclones
with a change of pace, as the
Cyclones have faced Oklaho
ma, Oklahoma State and Mis
souri the past three weeks.
Kansas University will too
be looking for a change of
pace with the Golden Bears of
California visiting Lawrence
Colorado's Golden Buffaloes
have already finished their
conference competition with
but one win. The Buffs hope
to una non-conference opposi'
tion easier, playing the Red
Raiders of Texas Tech at Lub
Husker basketball coach,
Jerry Bush, sent 14 NU cag
ers into their fifth week of
practice in preparation for
the December 1 opener at
Texas Tech.
Bush, who is entering his
ninth year as Husker head
court mentor will have two-
year lettermen in Ivan Gru
pe and Jan Wall. The two
head a group of seven return
ing monogram winners for
the Nebraska squad.
Grupe, considered the Husk
ers toughest reboundcr, will
be at a starting position while
Wall, still bothered by a knee
injury, will be used at spots,
according to Bush.
Bush also has definite plans
for Charlie Jones, junior let
terman from Washington
D.C.; Daryl Petsch, junior
sharpshooter from Marys-
ville, Kans.; and possibly
juniors Neil Nannen and Bill
Vincent plus Wall and Grupe
in the starting positions.
Bush indicated, however,
that Denny Puelz, 5-7 junior
letterman, could crack the
first five and would see plen
ty of action.
The Husker coach is also
expecting aid from two trans
fer cagers Ed Lorentzen, 6-5
junior from Luther Junior
College, and Jerry Spears,!
6-6 soph from Ohio State.
In addition, five promising
sophomores off Coach Bob
Gates freshman team of last
year could furnish adequate
support. These five are Lar
ry Bornschlegl, Jack Cramer,
Gary Haas, Earl Wright and
Joel Kortus.
