    Devaney anticipates
USC ruiniiiig attack
Associate Sports Editor
Offensively potent Southern
California is capable of mapp
ing several routes to the goal
line, but Nebraska football
coach Bob Devaney says,
"They'll just run right at us."
And the Husker boss has
sound reasoning behind his
USC, despite having first-rate

receivers in flanker Bob
Chandler and split-end Sam
Dickerson, used their running
game to accumulate 485 yards
rushing in dumping Alabama
42-21 last weekend.
The most impressive of the
Trojan backs was sophomore
sensation Sam Cunningham.
Cunningham, running at better
than 10 yards a clip, scored the
Trojans first two touchdowns.
And Cunningham is sup
posedly running second-string
fullbadk behind veteran Charlie
"We had heard about Cunn
ingham before the season
started," said Devaney. "But
like all sophomores, you have
to see them play before you
really know."
Speaking of sophomore stan
douts from USC brings back
memories of quarterback Jim
my Jones' varsity debut at
Nebraska in 1969. Jones was a
sophomore with a sore back
when the Trojans met the
Uuskers in the season opener at
Memorial Stadium.
But for a sore-backed
quarterback, he didn't do too
bad. Jones ran 27 times for 114
yards and tossed a 45-yard
touchdown pass to Chandler to
lead the Trojans to a 31-21
"The tough part about Jones
is that he's hard to throw tor a
loss because he's so elusive,"
said Devaney. "We'll try to
contain him and force him to
throw from a pocket."
Jones' throwing percentage is
not that great, but he is very
dangerous in clutch situations,
lie threw 13 touchdown passes
in 19C9.
The Trojans game breaker is
tailback Clarence Davis who
led the Pacific Eight in rushing
last year and finished fifth in
the nation. Davis rushed for
1275 in ten regular season
"Over the years. Southern
Cal has based its offense on a
strong running attack," noted
the Husker mentor. "But
they'll use the pass when
you're not expecting it."
"Our defense will have to do
the job," said Devaney. "I'm
sure they'll test us deep and
I'm worried about that more
than anything else. They beat
us deep three times last
The Uuskers will meet
Southern California at the Los
Angeles Memorial Coliseum in
an. 8 p.m. date Saturday. This
is the first game under the
lights for Nebraska since the
l&ti6 Orange Bowl.
A special night practice has
been scheduled Thursday at
Seacrest Field in Lincoln.
