' couldn't sleep
all last nigh?

Nebruskan Sports Editor
For a guy who couldn't sleep the night before the
game and who couldn't practice the entire week, Wayne
Beske gave a pretty impressive account of himself.
His Iowa State team absorbed a 17-3 setback against
Nebraska Saturday, but offensive center Eeske feels he
did well against Husker middle guard Ken Geddes. Well,
that is, when Geddes lined up in front of him.
"He's the best nose guard I've ever played against,"
Beske says of Geddes. "He has tremendous ability to run
around things. He's got good instinct.
"I felt 1 handled him well in some situations," Beske
offered. "I couldn't sleep all last night. I knew I had
a double barrel on my hands. Geddes may be ail-American."
While Beske gave Geddes a solid promotional plug,
Cyclone coach Johnny Majors gave Beske one. "He's the
best center in the conference," Majors says, "and he's
the best center I've ever been associated with. When Geddes
lined up in front of him, he did a good job of keeping
him out."
Beske, a 235-pound package of muscle from Minneapolis,
missed the week's Cyclone workouts before the Nebraska
game because of an elbow injury, "lie couldn't even move
his arm Thursday when we worked out in sweat clothes,"
Majors commented.
When did Beske know he could play? "Not until we
went out on the field," Beske said as team trainers scissored
him out of his jersey. "I had a lot of trouble getting
my jersey on, but I tried to psyche myself out of any
The fifth best college heavyweight wrestler in the coun
try last year, Beske succeeded in psyching himself out.
He played and played well, but he saw a 5-year dream
evapoi-te in the Cyclone loss.
"If there was one team I wanted to beat in my career,"
he said, "it was Nebraska, and I don't know really why
it's like that. It's a tremendous, hard-hitting rivalry. There
was a lot of punching in today's game. It's just natural,
I guess."
"The funny thing about it," Beske continued, "is I
always wanted to play for Nebraska when I was in high
school. Being from Minnesota, all I ever heard was Big
10 this and Big 10 that. I knew the Big 8 was tougher
though. Nebraska was the toughest Big 8 team around
then, and it may be now. I just don't know why I didn't
come here. I was recruited, but just liked Iowa State.
Beske, in obvious pain after the game, said his injury

between two guys' helmets," he said. It was painful. I
couldnt move my arm, and I didn't have any feeling
in my fingers. I don't have any feeling In my fingers
now either."
Saturday's situation was too competitive to bypass,
however. "It was a matter of keeping my reputation up
against the best," he said. "I've been around five years.
I was redshirted a year, and this was one last crack
against Nebraska. I didn't want to miss It for anything."
Beske's dream of Iowa State toppling the Huskers never
materialized. When he was a freshman, Nebraska dumiwd
the Cyclones, 44-0. The four Husker wins since that triumph,
however, have been hard-earned. Scores of 12-6, 12-0 and
24-13 preceded this year's result.
"I wish we had about 20 pounds more on each man,"
Beske says. "You need It to survive when you play

While Husker co-captaln
Dana Stephenson p r e -calculated
plans, Devaney
said it was too early for
"bowl talk."
Stepehenson conceived the
post-game 100th Devaney
celebration with a large
Centennial-type cake.
Asked what would have
happened ' to the cake or
celebraation plans if the
Huskers had not won,"
Stephenson said, "That's a
good question. I never
thought of it."
He did, however, think of
Kansas State and its white
shoed, record-setting
quarterback, Lynn Dickey.
"We want to show them that
class doesn't make a football
team," Stepehenson said.
"We act as a team. We dress
as a team. We win as a

Nebraska defensive end
Sherwin J a r in o n , like
Stephenson, is also pointing
to ttie K-Siate challenge.
"Dickey will be my real
challenge," said Jarmon,
who more than warmed up
for the effort by tackling
Cyclone quarterback Obert
Tisdule for minus yardage
six times.
Tisdale, who once was
spilled before a fake Cyclone
field goal got off the
launching pad, admittedly
made an understatement: "I
saw a lot more of (Mike)
Wynn and Jarmon than I
would have liked to have
seen," he said.
"I was hoping we could
contain them a little better
than we did," Tisdale added.

steered the Huskers to 10 se

Brownson scored the first
touchdown on a one-yard
plunge in a drive featuring a
69-yard pass to tight end Jim
McFarland, who admitted
after the game that he wish

the ball in a crowd of no one.
Paul Rogers kicked a 30

to' give the Huskers a 10-3

that," the nation's winningest
coach said.

five third places to its credit,
the last one in 1962.
The Huskers were never
really in contention for the
top spot as champion Kansas
outdistanced the field.

edging Missouri in the
scramble for second place.

should have a good team,"
he said, "but it will be hard
to replace guys like Brang,
Campbell, and Bob Tupper."
Top Husker returners next
fall will be Lang, Carlberg,
Mike Lee. sidelined this fall
with mononucleosis, and Jim
Hawkins, a promising
freshman sidelined this fall
with an injury.
Sevigne indicated the team
would not be competing in
the NCAA meet this fall. This
had been mentioned as a
possibility if the Huskers
performed well in the Big
Eight meet.
"We're going to con
centrate now on the indoor

"Practice will begin after
