"'Jobixiy wants a tie," sai'i de'f-.'iisive end
Steve Manstedt, who had 13 ta'.k h. s aqainst the
Cfr.vboys. "i. veTy body wants bj win, and to us,
this tie is almost lil- e a loss. "
Defensive tackle and co captain John
Dutton said Nebraska is a hi of winners, and
"we don't like to tie. "
"I'm angry that we tied Ixtcause it feels like
a loss," he said. "A tic moans noriieuj to us."
A lie was inevitable wlvn .p.. in the fouith

"I fi'j:,l' we should he ,,m !. .(Ve' the ball
a foot," i ;e "f it !r,d i . -t ;: couple of
yards to go, we'd have tried the field goal. But
you've got to play percentage football."
Defensively, the Blackshirts weie facing a
proven Cowboy offensive attack that had
averaged over 400 yarcis a game. Nebraska held
the wishbone offense to 294 yards, forced six
fumbles and recovered three of them.
Oklahoma State's only sustained drive came
in the second quarter when it drove 52 yards in
11 plays and faced a fourth and goal situation
at the Nebraska one yard line. It scored when
halfback Leonard Thompson dived for the goal
line, and the official signaled the touchdown.
But Dutton said the call by the official was
a "very close one."
"Some of the sideline people said he wa: n'l
over," he said. Dutton was credited with seven
tackles against the Cowboys.
Middle guard John Bell, who had 13 tackles,
agreed with Dutton that the touchdown was
'There was a pileup, and the whistle blew,
and then it seemed like he went over," he said.
On the bus ride from Lewis Fiehi to the
Stillwater Municipal Airport, O'leaiy was
another frustrated Cornhusker. He was the
starting l-hack against the Cowboys, but in the
first quarter he strained some ligaments in his
left knee. He didn't play in the second half.
O'Leary summed up Nebraska's 111
conference record by shaking his head and
saying, "We just keep beating ourselves."
