With Saturday's 44-0 drubbing of Iowa State Coach Bob
Devaney and company showed Husker fans the two things
th experts were talking about before the season started.
First, Nebraska is definitely the nation's number one
team. In Saturday's conference opener the Huskers flashed
the power and balance that they have used to take two con
secutive Big Eight titles and the reason they've been tabbed
to repeat again. The balance between the running and pass
ing attack that was displayed against the Cyclones will
probably be the winning formula for the rest of the season.
Although the scoring was lopsided the statistics weren't.
The Huskers grounded out 294 while totaling 207 through the
air to add up to an impressive 501 total yardage. The total
is even more impressive when compared to the Cyclone 74
yard afternoon total.
It'll be interesting to see where the Huskers are ranked
this week and for my money they should be an unquestion
able Number One.
The second thing that the game showed was the remark
able depth and the amount of it on the Husker bench. When
Devaney played his second unit, composed largely of sopho
mores, the second half a spectator couldn't help but feel
Now is a good time to point out just the type of depth
the Husker's have. As they showed Saturday, a lot of the
"subs" are pressing for the top spots.
This is a typical situation where you have a large num
ber of "unheralded heroes." The player that's waiting his
chance for a break, a "good look," anything to be able to
start and play. Take away the numbers and I'm sure the
fan would have a hard time telling who's who in the Scarlet
Of course one game does not make a season and Wis
consin with Saturday's come-back effort promises to be a
tough-nut to crack next week. However, the Scarlet showed
that they have the manpower and the overflow of potential
to fully qualify any vote cast for it as the nation's top team.
Defense Toughens
The fabulous "Black Shirts" should have quelled any
one's fear of their defensive ability. Their hard-nosed de
fensive tactics stopped any hope of a would be Iowa State
passing attack and made the Cyclones wish they'd stayed
nome as tney were only able to net a game total of 74 yards.
Defensive back Bill Johnson gave his hometown fans
(something extra to cheer about as he was all over the field
and his fumble recovery in the second half killed anv of the
Cyclone's victory hopes. Johnson's hometown of Stanton had
declared Saturday as "Bill Johnson Day" and over 300
people made the trip.
Leftend Langston Coleman turned in another one of his
fine game performances again proving to the opposition that
ms end is just not the place to run for yardage. Coleman
teamed with right-end Bill Haug in making the Cyclones
bite the dust for repeated losses of yardage.

Playing a first quarter of

the Huskers explode for a 16

came off the bench to spark
the Huskers after a dazzling
48 yard punt return by Larry
Playing before the overflow
Band Day crowd of 54,125 the
Huskers were unable to cash
in on Dick Czap's first quar
ter fumble recovery on t h e
Iowa State eight yard line.
Czap pounced on the fumble
after Langston Coleman jarred
the pigskin away from a Cy
clone ball carrier on an end
Starting quarterback Bob
Churchich sent Harry Wilson
into the line for two yards
and then Frank Solich tried to
sweep the end and was
stacked up after a one yard
gain. With third down and
five Churchich overthrew Den
nis Ilichnafsky in the end zone.
A bad pass from center
spoiled Wachlioltz's field goal
attempt, and the Huskers
scoring threat.
After Wachholtz's punt re
turn to the Iowa State four it
looked like a repeat perform
ance as Pete Tatman was
'.topped at scrimmage and
Duda slipped for a three yard
loss. With third down and
seven to goal Richnafsky took
in a Duda pass and bulled his
way into the end zone with
11:14 left in the half, to put
the Huskers on the score
With this showing the Husk
ers came alive and the Black
Shirts stopped the Cyclones
for a three down series loss
of one yard. Following a 12

holtz it looked dark for the
Huskers after a clipping pen

(the touchdown door again.

Following an exchange of
the football the Huskers had
it on their ow- four yard line
with less than two minutes to
go. Duda then mixed his
plays and had the ball on the
Cyclone 34 when he hit Tony
Jeter on the goal line. Jeter
bobbled the ball and it was
taken by Dennis Esselmann
who was dropped in the end
zone by Tatman to add a two
point safety tally to the first
half scoring.
The second half opened
anyone's ball game and the
Huskers were out to prove it
was thcir's as Duda capped a
7"v-yard scoring drive run
ning out of seven tacklers as
he ducked in from the Cyclone
three yard line.
The Huskers took quick ad
vantage of Bill Johnson s
kickoff fumble recovery on
the Iowa State 26 as Duda
connected with Freeman
White to add the second tally
in 23 seconds and giving
them a 30-0 lead.
It was all over but the scor
ing then as head coach Bob
Devaney cleared the Husker
bench the rest of the second
half. Third-string fullback
Charlie "Choo Choo" Winters
scored the other two touch
downs on scoring drives of 73
and 41 yards. Wachholtz a'lded
the extra points to push his
season mark to 13 of 14 to
finish up the game scoring.
The Huskers put the na
tion's number one offensive
unit in gear as they piled up
294 yards on the ground and
207 yards in the air. The
Black Shirts, led by Senkbeil
and Coleman, checked the Cy
clones to a 74 yard game total
and limited hard-running Les
lie Webster to a four yard

Iowa State's bright spot
came off the toe of Steve
Balkovec who punted nine
times and ended up with a fine
46 yard average.
Nebraska's ground game
was led by Wilson who ac
counted for 69 yards in nine
carries and by Tatman who
carried six times for 62 yards.
Churchich got over his first
quarter jitters to complete
seven of 13 for 95 yards while
Duda connected on eight for
15 which was good for a 112
yard total.
Richanfsky grabbed six for
66 yards and a touchdown to
lead the recei' ers, followed by
White who came up with three
for 52 yards and a touchdown.
Most serious injury of the
game was halfback Ron Kirk

the game with a shoulder injury.

petition Saturday as the Buffa
los downed the Wildcats in a
36-0 romp at Manhattan.
Kansas State was unable to
pose a threat to Colorado as
they were kept in check by
a tough Buffalo defense that
held them to a minus 19 yards
rushing and 56 yards passing.
Colorado's scoring came in
the form of four touchdowns
and the field goal kicking of
Frank Rogers, who accounted
for three three-pointers from
32, 30 and 48 yards out.
The Buff's attack was
sparked by the running of
sophomore halfback William
Harris who logged 96 yards
in 18 carries before sitting out
the final quarter.
