Page 4 The Daily Nebraskon Monday, October 4, 1965 (Daily TbbhaAkan SPORTS Jim Swartz, sports editor Goal Dust By Jim Swartz Nebraskan Sports Editor 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 optimistic. 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 lineup. 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. Duda Sparks Drives Huskers Stun Cyclones, 44-0 By Jim Swartz Nebraskan Sports Editor Nebraska opened its Big Eight schedule at Memorial Stadium Saturday with a 44-0 stunning of the Iowa State Cy clones. Playing a first quarter of what appeared to be matched football the Cyclones watched the Huskers explode for a 16 point second quarter total en fineered by Fred Duda who came off the bench to spark the Huskers after a dazzling 48 yard punt return by Larry Wachholtz. 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 sweep. 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 board. 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 yard punt return by Wach holtz it looked dark for the Huskers after a clipping pen alty put the ball on Nebras- YES!

After a 13 yard run by Solich Harry Wilson powered his way in from four out standing up for the second tally and putting the Huskers on solid ground. 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 average. Iowa State's passing attack failed to materialize as t h e Huskers limited Tim Van Gal den to four for 12 with one in terception keeping him under pressure with hard, bruising charges. 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 land who was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury.
