Dont kid yourself. The Kansas State crew that Ne
braska meets at Manhattan Saturday doesn't resemble
their predecessors that failed to win a game during the last
New head coach Vince Gibson has revamped the Wild
cats and it paid off with a 17-7 opening victory over Colo
rado State. Last week, however, Virginia Tech clawed
the Wildcats 15-3 after K-State had jumped in front on a
Kansas State has a brilliant passing combination from
quarterback Bill Nossek to the Big Eight's leading re
ceiver Dave Jones.
Overall the Wildcats are leading the Big Eight in both
passing offense yardage (with a 164.5 game average) and
in passing defense (allowing only 73 yards per game).
Nebraska's passing attack hasn't set any records of
fensively and the passing defense, manned by an inexperi
enced crew is currently third in the league.
Nebraska won't rely heavily on its passing crew Sat
urday, but rushing is the main gun the Huskers used to
defeat Washington and Minnesota this season.
Nebraska is averaging an impressive 239 rushing
yards per contest and has allowed a mere 61 yards per
Kansas State, is in the league's cellar in both rushing
departments so Nebraska should come through with a
strong running game.
The Wildcat defense is led by Danny Lankas, a strong
side linebacker who was named Big Eight Lineman of the
Week following his work against Colorado State. In the first
two games, he has made 24 unassisted tackles and 19
assisted grabs, placing him among the league's top de
fenders. TAKES MORE THAN ONE
But Lankas can't do it alone. Nebraska features hard
running backs Ben Gregory and Dick Davis, who rushed
104 yards against a rugged Gopher defense in Lincoln last
Nebraska's defense is leading the Big Eight with an
average allowance of 166 yards and has only permitted
one touchdown in two games.
K-State may have a good passing attack but not good
enough to do much penetrating against the Nebraska de
fenders. Even with all the talk about the potent passing game
the Wildcats have only scored 20 points in two games, and
while Nebraska has totaled just 24, the Huskers have the
great defense which K-State lacks.
Nebraska has never lost to K-State under coach Bob
Devanev and they will pick up their 41st victory of the
series dating back to 1911, by scoring their season's first
conference victory Saturday.
81 PER CENT
After picking all Big Eight games correctly last
week, boosting our percentage to 81 per cent, we will try
tomorrow's schedule which shows Oklahoma idle. COLO
RADO OVER IOWA STATE: It will be David meeting Go
liath at Boulder, but Iowa State doesn't have the knock
out stone that killed the bully centuries ago. The Buffaloes
are seeking to replace Nebraska as Big Eight king and by
Saturday night both Colorado and Nebraska will share the
Big Eight lead with a victory apiece.
TEXAS OVER OKLAHOMA STATE: Darrell Royal may
have seen his Texans lose two games this season, but
those losses were to the nation's number one ranked South
ern California Trojans and to the Texas Tech Red Raders,
rated tenth in t h e land. The Cowboys have only scored
seven points in two games and will finally find then
match against the Longhoms at Austin.
KANSAS OVER OHIO UNIVERSITY: Strictly a hunch. The
Jayhawks have come close in both their previous games
and this may be the week they jump over the victory hump.
The Jayhawks will play before the Lawrence crowd in the
Kansas opener and they will score Pepper Rodger s first
JHSSOURI OVER ARIZONA: Arizona upset Ohio State last
week but they will have trouble doing the same against
Dan Devinc's nationally-rated Tigers at Columbia. Mis
souri's Gary Kombrink, voted Big Eight Back of the week
this week, will lead his crew to their third straight non

Friday afternoon again and here you

Speaking of beer, Busch & Co's St.
Louis Cardinals did not get off to the start
they were expected to against a sup

Series. But a 2-1 win is as good as any,

Boston, of course, bounced back
Thursday for a 5-0 decision, an especially

The East Coast Mystery Correspon-
dent claims to be sporting a perfect pre
diction record as yet. He did not publish
his first week's predictions because of
lack of conference in his picks. He assures,
however, that all his choices were correct.

PENN over Brown Brown gets.

CORNELL over Colgate-Colgate's In

Columbis last week.
HARVARD over Boston Harvard
looks like a sleeper in Ivy League, but
Boston just looks asleep.
SLIPPERY ROCK over Shippensburg

YALE over Connecticut Yale should
MUHLENBURG over PMC Colleges
Muhlenburg hits the big time with a
splash and PMC gets wet.
Other picks: COLUMBIA over Prince

HAMILTON over Rensselaer Polytechnic.

dent also reports that in the Ivy League
"I intentionally consider Brown as last,
because that is where they will intvit
ably end up. Brown is not really bad, but
laws prevent me from being more descriptive."
