Nebraska holds substantial
leads in four of six major
team statistic categories after
six games according to official
Kg Eight listings this week
The Huskers, who have yet
to face the big three; Missou
ri, Oklahoma and Kansas, lag
only in pass offense (second)
and pass defense.
Nebraska last week figured
among the nation's top ten
teams In total and rushing of
fense, scoring and rushing de
fense, headed by a No. 1 na
tional ranking in rushing of
fense with a 286.2 average
over five games.
Saturday, against Colorado,
Nebraska boosted that aver
age a trifle to 287.0 with 293
yards on the ground against
the Buffaloes, and further for
tified their Conference statis
tical leads in total offense,
rushing and total defense.
Nebraska has averaged 383.3
yards over a six-game span,
some 17 yards better than the
figure they posted a week ago
to rank eighth nationally in
total offense. Defensively, Ne
braska has limited six foes to
an average of 194 yards a
game, and only 81.5 yards per
game on the ground.
While the overall picture
favors the Nebraskans statis
tically, some of their glitter
over the weekend went to out
standing offensive perform
ances by Kansas and Okla
homa and a gritty defensive
show by Iowa State. Kansas
gamed 444 yards against Ok'
lahoma State to push its total
offense mark to 312.7 behind
the Huskers, and Oklahoma
picked up 441 against Kansas
State for an overall 309.4 of
fensive mark.
Iowa State, the pass defense
leader with a 76.5 average,
limited Missouri to a mere 18
yards on the ground, to move
into the Conference defensive
race behind Nebraska and

time against Oklahoma State-
picked up 104 yards in seven
carries against the Cowboys to
regain the Conference rushing

Blaik Sub Opinion

will very likely legislate for

Blaik noted that in the period
between 1949 and 1952 when
colleges played separate units
for offense and defense, this

Blaik characterized the

"merely another in a series of

"If I can't impress the
scribes by the way I play on
the field, I don t deserve any
ink and if I play well enough
to attract attention, there's
not much I can say.'1,
Brown did say little but
others were quick to praise
him for the Colorado perform'

Though some sav that the
best defense is a good of-
tense, Nebraska has won five
oi its first six games by lim
iting its opponents to an av
erage of only 2.2 yards per
rush. Nebraska has averaged
o.t yaras per rush.
Nebraska has nearlv

compared to 70 for the opponents.
One Husker sour note is the
number of fumbles. Nebraska
has fumbled 19 times and
lost 10 while the opponents
have lost a total of only five
Injured halfback Willie
Ross, who has gained a net 360
yards for an average of 6.7,
may yet tie able to play some
against Missouri. Ross suited
up last night, and iniured
tackle Monte Kiffin did Mon
day at practice.
Sopohomore speedster Frank
Solich may be able to make
the trip to Missouri. Solich,
used as a punt and kickoff re
turn specialist, hasn't played
since suffering a shoulder in
jury after taking a punt in the
Minnesota (second) game.
On Missouri Devaney said:
"We are looking forward to a
real tough game with one of
the top teams in the countrv.
Missouri won a rough battle
from an inspired Iowa State
team, again proving the
Tigers can win with defense
when an opponent stalls their
games," Coach Bob Devaney
said. "But he really came up
with a fine, job against Color
ado." Brad Wilson of the Des
Register noted Brown's work
against the Buffs by writing,"
"With three professional foot
ball scouts eyeing his every
move, Nebraska's All Ameri
ca candidate Bob Brown had
a great day."
Perhaps the most satisfying
tribute, though, came from
Colorado tackle Al Hollings
worth, former Omaha North
player, who told reporters he
hclt Brown "played a "better
game against us than Damon
Bame," Southern Cal'g All
American linebacker.
Judging from the Colorado
game, Bob Brown's theory of
much play and little talk is
quite successful in practice.
