Kent McCloughan, Nebras

McCloughan, the 220-yard
dash champion in the Confer
ence last spring, has sprint
ed to six touchdowns the
longest a 69-yard burst last
Saturday against Kansas
State and caught two scor
ing passes, including a circus
snare against Minnesota for
the win. That totals 48 points.
This gives him a 24-point
lead over his nearest rival,
Lance Rentzel, the do-every-thing
guy at Oklahoma, and
puts him in position to be
come the first Big Eight play
er to score over 100 points in
a season since Tommy Mc
Donald and Clendon Thomas
did so for Oklahoma back in
1956. However, the scoring re

Nebraska is making its bid for the number one spot
in the country. No, not just the Big Eight title. Coach
Bob Dcvaney's Huskers, by simple virtue of their record,
and in the eyes of a nation of observers, may be rated the
best in the country by the end of the season.
A Big Red team hasn't been undefeated since 1915
when Jumbo Stiehm guided the team to eight wins. Ne
braska beat Notre Dame that year, 20-19. If we only had
the schedule that we did then.
Two things will decide Husker fate this year if the
number one spot is to be reached. 1) Elementary, Wat
son. Nebraska can't lose. 2) The present frontrunners
must falter, or for quick assurance, they must lose.
Nebraska's schedule doesn't include enough major
teams to assure national dominance but if the remaining
giants rated above the Huskers fall, Nebraska can make
it. Southern Cal, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Navy are
among the pre-season giants who have felt the ax.
It is interesting to note why the Huskers are where
they are. After every game, one of the news-hounds in
the dressing room throws this at Devaney. "Coach, what
do you think the team's chances are for the Big Eight
or the Orange Bowl, etc.?" And invariably, the reply is
cautioned projection to the next game, and only the next
Devaney and his team take their chances one Sat
urday at a time, one opponent at a time, one problem at
a time. Shortsighted? No, that's how to play winning foot
ball You can't win on predictions, or illusions of power,
or great potential. You can win with present ability for
what it's worth. It might work.
Trouble is, sports columnists almost have to live in
the world of potential and illusions. And it hasn't been
working for them this season. Me either. We can keep
trying, and so will Colorado, but not hard enough. Bee
soaked and sober fans will see it NEBRASKA 28, COLO

best day of the year as he
also picked up 70 yards in six
carries to move into the lead
ing rushers list, which is still
headed by Kansas' Gale Say-ers.
Sayers may have been held
to only 36 yards by the tough
Oklahoma forward wall, but
still he got loose for the long
est kickoff runback in the
Conference thus far, a 93
yarder. Bidding to become the
most prolific rusher in Big
Eight history, Sayers now
has a 386 total for the year
and is only 134 yards behind
Dave Hoppmann's career re
cord of 2,562.
Serving notice that he is go
ing to have to be reckoned
with the rest of the way in
rushing was Oklahoma's Jim
Grisham, who snapped out of
his slump, gaining 104 against
Kansas the best of three
games against the Jayhawk
ers and moving into fourth
with 228 yards. Last year he
finished second to Sayers. On
the season, Grisham has yet
to lose a yard. Oklahoma
State's Walt Garrison is sec
ond with 267, and tiny Frank
Solich of Nebraska is third
The tightest battle in the in
dividual categories shapes up
in total offense, where Okla
homa State's Glenn Baxter,
who was idle last week, still
holds a lead over Gary Lane
of Missouri, last year s cham
pion. However, this lead has
shrunk to three yards, with
Baxter amassing 569 in four
games, and Lane 566 in five
