In the post-game interview Coach Bob Devaney answered
the inevitable bowl question saying "Nothing has been done

We will postpone any action as long as we can. We
would like to wait until the end of the season."

The most obvious bowl choice seems to be a return trip
to Dallas to face the Arkansas Razorbacks for the second con
secutive year. The Husker 10-7 loss last year figures in on Ar
kansas's winning streak, the longest of any major c o 1 1 e 2 e
football team, and the game could pave the way to the mvthi

Devaney also praised Kirk

work of Kaye Carstens and

of the offensive line.
"The only dissatisfaction is
tbe throwing." Devaney said.
"The yardage is not bad, but
tbe completion is bad."
