Sigler 's dedication pays off with win for Huskers
by Randy York
Assistant Sports Editor
He'd been out there for five
years, worked out winter and
summer, prepared for every
game as if he were to start;
and Saturday, dedication paid
off for Ernie Sigler and the
Huskers. t
Paul Rogers kicked the
winning field goal, but Sigler
ignited the spark
After waiting in the wings
his entire career, Sigler took
controls of a sluggish
Nebraska offensive machine
early in the second half and
engineered the Huskers to , .
1 3 . 1 U com c-nui" -
triumph over Wyoming.
"It's something you dream
about all the time," said the
sweating. but smiling Dallas,
TepRIDEABOUNDED and it
was evident. But when Sigler
was asked if the game pro
vided his happiest moment
the humble 22-year old
replied, "Only because we
won, that's all."
It may properly and ap
propriately be stated that
Sigler has completed his ap
prenticeship at the
Quarterback slot after cashing
to on his first real opportunity
at the Husker helm.
This prompted HusKer
coach tfevaney to say.
"Frank (PatncK) nas gui
beat Ernie out oi uic j"u
Ernie has had as tough a role
to get a chance to play
Quarterback as any that I ve
coached."

, "It's the first real chance
we've ever given him. He's
been out there now for five
years and has played on the
scout squad a couple of years.
He's taken as tough a beating
as I've seen a guy take."
Credit for the revitalized
spirit in the second half was
pinpointed on Sigler as team
mates gushed forth praise.
"YOU'D NEVER know how
good it feels," said Sigler.
"I've been riding the bench
so long. I made up my' mind
that if I wasn't good enough
to iJlay, I still always wanted
to be ready. So I prepared
myself mentally for every
game like I was going to
start."
Sigler, who held for all
scoring kicks last , season,
found himself in the same
role Saturday with 21 seconds ,
left in the game.
Rogers, the Rock Rapids,
la., sophomore, showed no
signs of rookie apprehension
as he promptly delivered the
winning goods, a 51-yard field
goal which sailed high
through the uprights.
Rogers' second fielder
handed Nebraska its ninth
consecutive opening game
triumph. The Cowboy bran
ding snapped a skein of nine
straignt opening game wins
for the Laramie club.
"I had been practicing from
that distance a lot," 8 ai d
Rogers. "I knew that if I hit
the ball all right with enough
power, it would get there."
Rogers missed on an at
tempt from the 27-yard line
in the first quarter. His se
cond boot rang up a three
pointer later in the first
quarter.
"My first two attempts
really helped me for the last
one," said Rogers, who felt
that he had broken the ice
and was in the grove of
things. "It made that first one
a lot easier."
After converting the extra
point following McFarland's
touchdown, Rogers said that
Devaney had forewarned him
about another crack at a field
goal. "He told me to keep
cool, we may need you for
three more points."
"I'D HATE to have to win
a game every week on that
long a field goal," Devaney
sighed. We were driving good,
but that holding penalty and
quarterback loss left us in a
situation where we might well
have not gotten a chance."
"I thought by the time we
got ready to kick, we'd be
out of range," he added.
But Nebraka did get that
chance and Rogers came
through, bringing 65,018 fans
into mass ecstasy. But no one
could have been more ecstatic
than Sigler, the holder, and
Rogers, the kicker. After the
signal by the referee that the
kick wos good, the pair m
braced at midfield with Sigler
wrapping a bear hug around
Rogers and gleefully wrestled
him to the ground.
"It felt like a million
dollars," said halfback Mike
Green, who replaced Joe
Orduna when Sigler replaced
Patrick. "An effort like this
is just unexplainable. I felt
so pinned down on the bench,
but it wasn't too soon when
I. got the chance to do my
part."
"We were determined not
be stopped," said Green in
reference to the fresh

backfield Devaney sent in
which had soph Dan Schneiss
operating at the fullback slot.
Husker punter and
defensive back vet Dana
Stephenson, who pirated one
of three stray Cowboy passes,
said, "Sigler definitely lifted
the team. But Schneiss and
Green did a good job too. I
think they got psyched up
watching the first team " get
stopped."
MAYBE SO,BUT the fresh
troops seemed to illustrate a
Husker depth advantage. "I
think experience showed,"
said Devaney, cautious of
making any implications. "We
didn't have any offsides
penalties and Wyoming was
anticipating the count. But
our line sat in there real
well."
Gene Huey, the Pokes' 2
way standout performer, in
flicted the damage by lat
ching onto a 5 4 - y a r d
touchdown pass in the firt
quarter. But the TD snag was
the only pass Huey caught the
entire afternoon.
"We worked on covering
Huey," Devaney said. "He
didn't run deep a lot on of
fense," he noted "because he
went both ways. Huey's a
fine defensive back. He could
play pro ball at either split
receiver or defensive back."
And with a batch o f
mistakes to work o n ,
Nebraska girds for another
week or practice sessions,
setting ks sights on next
week's guest, the University
