Kansas City, Mo. A new
leader in total offense for the
fourth time in e past five
weeks, another shift m the
see-saw race for Big Eight
Conference and national rush
ing honors and the same old
stand in passing
That's tfte picture reflected
by Big Eight Conference in
dividual statistical rank
ings released today by the
Conference office.
Kansas State's Larry Corri
gu is the new total offcast
leader with an eight-yard
margia (Tla-TK) over last
week's pace-setter, Steve Rea
io of Kaasas, and has baQt
up a Ida-yard margia in pass
ing tf cr Missoarfs Gary
Laae, bis aeamt competitor.
In rushing, it's Iowa
State's Tom Vaughn on top
with the same scant eigM
yard margin over Gale Say
ers of Kansas 642 and 634.
Last week. Savers led the na
tion with 555 rusMng yards
and VangSm was third nation
ally witii 536. . j
ine weeks top indhidual
performances went to the
quarterbacks with Lame lead
ing the pack. The Tiger
sophomore completed eight of
3D passes for 143 yards and
added 32 more msbing for a
175-yard day against Nebras
ka. That boosted Mm Ma the
So. 2 p-asiipg position and
back into contention for the
total Cense lead owned in
the past fiwe weeks by Den
nis Claridge of Nebraska,
Laxie, Remko and Corrigan in
that order.

Nebraska's narrow victory over Missouri Saturday was
decided by breaks and mistakes ... the only calm and
consistent aspects in Columbia were Rudy Johnson's bruis
ing ball carrying and the Huskers' first scoring success.
Nebraska drove 76 yards in 11 piays their first time
with the ball and Husker team consistency disappeared
until the second half. Missouri never did produce a long
sustained drive.
Johnsoa started things with a 39 yard burst and kept
moling all day for VtS yards in 19 carries to easily top the
day's ban carriers. On Johnson's first run and on many
similar ones to follow, it was big Bob Brown with the key
Mock from his polling guard position. Seven times the
Husker fullback got first downs in the game.
Johnson's placement gave Nebraska its one puint mar
gin, in the end. 13 to 12.
At the end of the first quarter, Missouri gained its first
score on a series of freak plays. DetraL. Claridge punted
weakly from deep in Nebraska territory to his 33 yard
line and the Tigers were set. Ted Saussele smafged a Gary
Lane pass between two sun-blinded Huskers and Missouri
had three yards for the touchdown.
They got it with Lady Luck on their side. Fullback
Paal Underbill was stopped cold on the two. He fumbled
aader Hnsker beef. The fumble dribbled into the end zone
and alert Ken Boston pounced on it for the six Doints.
BUI Leistritz conversion attempt was wide. Nebraska,
to 6. 4
A
Neither team penetrated very deep for the rest of the
half, althouis Leistritz fell short on a field goal try from
Nebraska's 36.
The stage was set for the wild second half. Nebraska
made visits to the Tiger 37. 18. 20. and 28 without scor
ing in the second half. Another weird play started the sec
ond Nebraska touchdown. Claridge again panted poorly to
Yince Turner who fumbled on the Husker 35 and Chuck
Doepke got this one.
' After the fumble, Nebraska pushed 61 yards on 16
plays in 8:17 elapsed time. The Tigers "pushed" 67 yards
on two plays in 17 seconds!
Boston was the live one again. He grabbed Lane's pass
all aione on the Nebraska right flank and raced 33 yards
to pay dirt- Missouri Coach Dan Devise called for the two
point conversion and a one point lead it almost worked.
Lane threw one to end Jtm Waller's fingertips, but a
red and white flash named Bruce Smith batted the aerial
out of the startled Missourian's hands. Nebraska's lead
stuck. 13 to 12.
Kent McCIoughan protided a key interception late in
the game of a Lane pass to kill the tigers' last chance at
victor on their homecoming. The ball was aimed for
Boston a?am. bot the speedy Nebraskan cut in front of It
and returned it to the Tiger 20.
GAME COMMENTS
Nebraska pass defense actually was sharp. Lane com
pleted only 8 for 20. His thirty-yarder to Saussele and the
fifty-three-yarder to Boston were the dangerous excep
tions. Every touchdovn scored against Nebraska this year
has come on a pass or has been set up by one with oik
exception. Dave Hoover's 70 yard run with a fake kick
in the Iowa State game was that exception.
Willie Ross couldn't run against Missouri. The Tigers,
led by massive George Seals, their 244-pound end, blocked
his holes time and again.
Dennis Claridge, who may miss the Kansas game next
Saturday with a bad leg, got eight yards late in the game
on a play picked np from Missouri films. The Husker quar
terback "faked the pass and rambled in the middle for a
first down.
Bob Brown got to shave the beard after the Tiger win.
Last year. Bob shaved before the game and the Huskers
lots. This time, he waited.
Nebraska had over ninety yards of penalties whistled
on them at Columbia. The Huskers were pushed back three
times on promising drives with fifteen yarders.
DEVANEY COMMENT: i hope the boys have enough
common sense to play one at a time after this. Kansas
will be out for revenge next Saturday for sure."
