New Contract Awaits Regents-
Nebraska footbaii coach
Bob Devaney announced
Tuesday afternoon that he has
notified University of Miami
officials to withdraw his name
from consideration as a suc
cessor to retiring Andy Gus
tavson. The popular Nebraska
coach, whose two-year record
is 18 wins and only three
losses, had visited Miami last
weekend but upon his return
stressed that he had not re
ceived an offer from Miami.
Devaney's statement Tues
day afternoon: ,
"I have decided to stay at
the University of Nebraska
and have withdrawn my name
from consideration at the Uni
versity of Miami. The job was
not offered to me, but I did
visit with Miami officials. My
wife, my family and I are
very happy at Nebraska and
we have decided to stay here.
We are now turning our full
attention toward Auburn and
the Orange Bowl game."
Devaney's decision was
hailed by Nebraska Athletic
director Tippy Dye.
"We're all extremely happy
that Bob Devaney and his
wonderful staff have decided
to stay here at the University
of Nebraska, Dye said. "They
have brought our football for
tunes to such a position that
all of us are tremendously
No announcement relating
to a new contract, appoint
m e n t or financial ar

none, Dye said, because such
announcements must be made
by the University B o a r d of
Regents following their ac
tions and the Regents do not

Nebraska powered 81 and 76
yards to score on Missouri,
marched 75 against Kansas,
hit Oklahoma State with
drives of 73 and 70, and rolled
69 y a r d s for a TD against
Perhaps the m o s t impres
sive Husker statistic is the
fact that 26 of the 37 NU touch
downs were scored from in
side the opposition's 10-yard
Nebraska made strides in
defensive improvement, to go
with a powerful offense, dur
ing 1963, and it paid off hand
somely for nine wins.
The Cornhuskers took the
ball away from its opponents
a total of 28 times this fall,
and they "gained" 585 yards
on plays originated by the op
position. NU foes yielded 360 yards
when their backs were
nabbed behind the line of
scrimmage. And Nebraska
defenders advanced the ball
225 yards with 14 pass inter
ceptions. Statistics don't reveal
countless "clutch" plays that
kept the Huskers among the
nation's elite 5th in the
UPI poll and 6th in the AP
poll, that is.
Bruce Smith blasting Mis
souri end Jim Waller loose
from a two-point conversion
attempt pass that would have
put the , Tigers in front, 14-13.
Dick Callahan's sprint
along the goal line to bat down
a pass from Larry Shields to
Lance Rentzel.
All America Bob Brown
tearing into the end zone, then
leaping high in the air to bat

Eight of the opposition's 15
