It was close for awhile Satu ciey. Nebraska and Kansas
were scoreless after the first quarter. But during the
middle of the fourth quarter, with Nebraska leading
56-0, Johnny Rodgers was relaxed enough to visit with
fans in the stands.

LAWRENCE, Kan-Quarterback David
Jaynes had been there before. He knew what it
was like to get a first college starting assignment
against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
It happened to Jaynes in Lincoln last year.
He was notified 15 minutes before game time
that he would be starting against the No. 1
team in the nation. It was a long afternoon.
Nebraska won 55-0. Kansas rushed for a minus
42 yards. And Jaynes spent most of the day
eating leather sandwiches.
But this year in Lawrence Jaynes was on the
sidelines with a bruised shoulder. It was Bob
Bruegging who drew his first starting
quarterback assignment against Nebraska.
It was an equally long afternoon for
Bruegging. Nebraska won 56-0. The Kansas
offense failed to take advantage of early scoring
opportunities. And Bruegging completed only
three of 16 passes.
"I was told I would start Friday night,"
Bruegging said. "I was naturally happy to be
playing, but there's got to be something easier
than starting at quarterback the first time
Jaynes, the Big Eight's leading passer who
did see some action against Nebraska in the
second quarter Saturday, had reminded
Bruegging about what happened in Lincoln last
"There really wasn't much I could tell him
(Bruegging)," Jaynes said. "I reminded him
about how quick those Nebraska defenders get
at you. I told him he would probably have to
get rid of the football fast. I guess I felt sorry
Bruegging, however, wasn't feeling sorry for
himself after the game.
"If you can't play against the best then you
shouldn't be playing at all," Bruegging said.
"We had to change some things in our offense
without Dave (Jaynes) in the game and I'm sure
that was one reason we had trouble getting
going. But it's no excuse.
"If our offense had done something in the
first quarter things might have been different.
But we did our best. Nebraska is good. That's
all there is to it."
Kansas' offense did have a chance to make
things different in the first quarter. The
Jay hawks blocked a Nebraska punt and had a
first down and goal situation from the six-yard
line when the game was still scoreless.
The Jayhawks failed to move. Monster Dave
Mason intercepted a Bruefgini pan in the
end zone to halt the threat. And that was the
last scorina, throat for Kansas. The Jayhawks
had only four first downs and rushed for just
32 yards as Nebraska claimed its third straight
' But the scoreless first quarter had Nebraska
coach Bob Devaney concerned.
"When the first quarter ended in a scoreless
tie I figured I'd be glad to get out with a
one-point win," Devaney said.
Nebraska's inability to move against Kansas
on the ground forced the Huskers to pass more
in the second quarter. That resulted in a
30-yard touchdown pass to Frosty Anderson, a
72-yard touchdown toss to Johnny Rodgers
and a 10-yard scoring strike to Dave Goeller in
the second quarter.
"Kansas did about what Missouri did against
us," Devaney said. "If they want to put eight
men up there they can stop your running game.
But then they give you the pass. I don't care
how we score."
Devaney was informed that lowly Missouri
had just upset Notre Dame and Colorado was
beating Oklahoma. He was asked for his
"I'd just as soon Colorado and Oklahoma
tie," Devaney said. "It shows Colorado
definitely must be back. But you never know.
Missouri might beat them next week."
Colorado did beat Oklahoma. Iowa State
had no trouble with Kansas State. And
Oklahoma State, Nebraska's foe at Memorial
Stadium next Saturday, stopped Baylor.
Things are going to get tougher before they
by Kim Ball
Games are getting closer, tempers shorter and officiating
tougher as the flag football season draws to a close.
Playoff games will be played every night this week in
determining the two finalists for Friday night's championship
In Thursday night's playoff action, No. 2 rated Hawks
ousted previously undefeated Fumblers in an overtime contest.
The Hawks scored on the next to last play of regulation time
to make the score 32-34. They then tied the game on what
proved to be a controversial play.
On the conversion attempt after the touchdown, the Hawk
halfback ran the ball in for two points which tied the score.
But Fumbler players protested, saying that the Hawk halfback
had run between the two tackles. In flag football a running
play must take place outside the tackle spots.
Two other undefeated teams lost for the first time in the
opening round of playoffs. Abel IV B and Phi Kappa Psi A
were beaten by Abel X and Phi Gamma Delta A.

independent teams-No. 1 rated-Pro Students against the No.
