collegiate gymnastic will 1& on the line Saturday
when the UNL fymnasii'tf team hosts defending
national and Big f! phimftls Iowa State University
(ISU) at 2 p.m. in Henzlik Hall gymnasium.
The Cyclones have won two national
championships in the last three years and five straight
Big 8 titles.
"Fantastic" was the only word Husker Coach
Francis Allen used to describe the Cyclones.
"I'd have to go out on a limb and say they'll be
national champions this year," he added.

This will be the first time these teams have met
since last fail, when ISU barely escaped upset at the
hands of the Huskers n the Big 8 Invitational.
"They're a much better team than they were last
fall," Allen said.
"But if we had the team we did then," he added,
"it would be a tight, close meet, Now it will take the
best effort we can come up with to beat them." He
was referring to the loss of all-around performer Gene
Mackie because of an injury.
Freshman Duane West, whom Allen calls the
second best floor exercise man in the conference, will
return to competition in that event, after recovering
from a sprained ankle.
Other Huskers to watch Saturday will be Gary
Jeurink in all-around competition, Pete Studenski on
the rings, Jim Unger in floor exercise, Gary Duff on
the parallel bars and Steve Dickey on the side horse;
The meet also will mark the Huskers' last home
meet of the season and the last to be held at Henzlik.
According to Allen, the larger crowds have made it
necessary to move the meets to the Coliseum.

of an unusual sporting event Monday night.
It was packed with 4,000 people waiting to
see a heavyweight boxing match between
Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.
