Sooners through three days of
fundamental drills blocking,
tackling, offensive linemen

Trainer Ken Rawlinson and

job. They are trying to g e t

McAdams, the worst in

This year's intramural, football playoffs were somewhat
of a rarity. The final All-University Champion, Delta Up
silon, played perfect ball in league competition and continued
to play winning ball throughout the tournament to capture
the championship.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the tournament was
xhen the three teams to beat in the tournament. Beta Theta
Pi, Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Chi were all beat in the first
day of the single elimination action.
A great many of the games went right down to the wire,
with the last play of the game or the final judgement of the
official providing the winning difference.
Team coaches will receive ballots this week for the selec
tion of an All-University tournament intramural football
team. The voting will be rather simple, each team will be
allowed eight votes to select the team that they would like
least to face. No team will vote for its own players and
eaoh team will also select two officials that they feel have
done an outstanding and good job of refereeing.
What About School Spirit?
School spirit has become 9ome sort of a "blah" thing
at Nebraska. What was once a real and authentic spirit has
now been lost in the expected victory of the team each week.
Pep rallies attract only a small portion of the student popu
lation and hardly get 100 per cent participation,.
Thursday, the pride of Nebraska will go before a national
television audience and show the viewer that they are fully
worthy of their ranking and the preseason publicity they
received. This and the bowl bid will serve to climax the
countless hours of practice and hard work that goes into
making a championship football team.
The student can do his part. Tomorrow night is the rally
for the Oklahoma game. Yell King F. C. Green urges ail
students to participate and make this a rally that would
show that there is still something called school spirit lurking
on the campus. The new school and state yell will be intro
duced for the first time.
One Game At A Time
Each week Coach TW Devaney warns his players to take
only one game at a dme, not to look ahead to a future
opponent. Students, stop making Miami plans, take one
game at a time. Oklahoma could provide as much of a sur
prise Thursday as they did last year when they stopped
Nebraska 17-7 at Norman, a week after the Huskers had
accepted the Cotton Bowl invitation.
Let's find out what the real and authentic sprit is all
about. No gimmicks, no gags show the team that the school
appreciates the possibility of the first undefeated season in
50 years.
Deserves King -
Any time they start pass
ing out bouquets to the 1965
Nebraska Cornhuskers,
they'll have to have a king
sized one for Harry Wilson.
The Cornhuskers 196-pound
junior halfback is the No. 2
ground-gainer on the squad
and he's had to grind it out
the hard way.
"Harry has had to face the
unfortunate situation of run
ning into the side where the
defense has over-loaded in an
attempt to stop us," back
field Coach Mike Corgan said.
This is not necessarily in
dicative that defenses are
laying for Light Horse Har
ry, since opponents frequent
ly over-shift the Husker un
balanced line. But from the
right halfback spot. Wilson
has been aimed at the over
load all season.
"When you consider the en
tire season, "Corgan said.
"You'll probably find that
Wilson has made more yards
after contact than any other
back he's gotten a lot of
yards on his own."
Another Wilson asset is
pugg-catching. He's caught six
for 45 yards to go with his
four TDg.
J'We haven't thrown a lot
to Harry, but he's done a good
job receiving," Corgan said.
Corgan and Head Coach
Bob Devaney are in unani
mous agreement about one

backs they must block or
go home.

"Nebraska won't be off

says grimly. "They've got too

One of the big gaps in Ne
braska s offensive line was
at center a spot filled so
well by All Big 8 Lyle Sittler,
now a coach at Lawrence
(Kansas) High School.
During spring practice, Sel
mer opined: "I think Kelly
can do the job, but he's got
to improve and use his abil
ity." Petersen didn't get the No.
1 job in spring practice, yield
ing to Harry Tuthill most of
the way. But Tuthill turned
up ineligible and Petersen got
his chance.
"Statistically, we rank as a
sound team," Selmer grins.
"And Kelly has been playing
center for us all the way. It's
a cinch he's been doing a fine
Petersen, a 223-pounder
from Cozad, came to Nebras
ka as a fullback.
"We didn't feel he had the
speed or quickness for full
back," Selmer said. "Now,
however, he has progressed
a great deal, picked up a real
understanding of the game
and most important he has
a position."
Selmer praises Petersen's
blocking this fall as the Husk
kers have defeated nine
straight opponents and lead
the nation in rushing offense. ,
"The center is a vital
man," Selmer said. "He's al
ways got to worry about
'Mike' (slang for the defen
sive middle guard.) 'Mike' is
always trying to run around
his head, and Kelly's always
got a difficult blocking as
signment." One of the most worrisome
positions for the Huskers in
September was center, and
one of the soundest now is
center thanks to Kelly Peter
sen. "You bet," Selmer said.
"You can say Kelly has done
a darn good job for us."

The team that hardly won
a game in two years is the
all-university intramural foot
ball champion. Delta Upsilon
cruised to a 24-6 victory over
the Misfits, a team composed
of independents living off
campus, for the title Nov. 19.
According to a team spokes

who have been playing togeth

The last two years were bleak
for the DU's as they scarce

this year they jumped from
the cellar and hammered their
way to an undefeated sea

As the game opened, the
Misfits won the toss and
marched all way down the
field for the first touchdown
of the game. Quarterback Jim
Panska connected with Bob
Andrews who gallopd 15 yard

DU Quarterback Larry

up the DU's first touchdown,
when John Kratina scored
from five yards out. As the
first quarter closed. Roland
Scholbert intercepted a pass,
giving the DU's possession of
the ball in the second quar

pass from Karel and dived
two yards into the end zone,
