Frosh humble Kearney;
scoreless streak Intact
at New Year s
By Pete Wegman
During the Nebraska Cornhuskers' foot
ball season, most H taker fans think in
terms of one color: red. However, recently
a little orange has crept into the picture.
When the Huskers played Miami Univer
sity three weeks ago, the first oranges,
thrown by fans hopeful of spending New
Years' Day night in Miami at the Orange
Bowl, hit Memorial Stadium's artificial
Although players on the team will
avoid making any statements about post
season play, the signs are still evident.
Many players sport what linebacker
Jim Wightman has called "beards for
Starting quarterback Vince Ferragamo
explained the new growths Saturday,
following the Huskers 63-21 thrashing of
the Colorado Buffalos.
'The coaches said if we continue to
win, we don't have to shave," Ferragamo
said. "I hope it (his beard) can get pretty
"I hate to look that far ahead, but we're
all optimistic," he said.
The Husker fans and players aren't
the only ones thinking about bowls.
The fourth-ranked Huskers have been
watched by numerous bowl scouts this
season and Saturday was no different
because scouts from the Fiesta and Sugar
The Huskers started Saturday's game as
if they didn't know bowl games and ratings
existed. One minute into the game,
Nebraska was behind 7-0, following a 74
yard run by Colorado quarterback David
That's when Ferragamo, UPI national
back and Big 8"Offcnslve "Player of the "
Week last week, went to work.
Two minutes later Ferragamo hit split
end Bobby Thomas with a 42-yard touch
down pass. Ferragamo then proceeded to
pick apart the Buffalo secondary.
When the smoke cleared and the game
was over, Ferragamo had connected on
eight of ten passes for 118 yards and two
touchdowns, in less than three quarters.
Ferragamo might have completed more
passes if the Huskers had not been trying
to hold the score down.
"Colorado has a good ball club, we just
had a good day," Ferragamo said.
"If we move them around, we win the
game. If they move us around, they win
the game. We moved them around today."
UNL's freshman football team extended
its high-scoring unbeaten record to 4-0,
whipping the Kearney State College
(KSC) junior varsity 45-0 Friday.
The freshmen have scored 179 points in
four shutout games. Coming into Friday's
game, KSC also was undefeated.

Nebraska regained the ball on its own
44-yard line after a Kearney punt. Quarter
back Tim Hager directed a scoring drive
ending in a one-yard plunge by I-back
Mike Burton. Dean Sukup kicked the first

The below-average performance of
UNL's all-around gymnasts was the reason
for a 214-207.6 loss to Iowa State Friday,

"We had faults where we shouldn't
have," Allen said. "Our all-arounders broke

Sophomore Larry Gerard finished
second in the all-around with 5 1.70 points
while senior Gene Mackie finished fifth.
The all-arounders might have felt a lot
of pressure on them, Allen said, but they
are better than what they showed. The all
arounders' performance probably cost the
team seven or nine points which would
have made the difference in the meet, he
Allen cited junior Duane West as best
performer in the dual for the Huskers.
West finished first in the floor exercise
with 9.3 points, tied for first in the hori
zontal bar with 9.35 points and collected
9.05 points in the vault.
Allen also said that freshman Terry
Newstrom did a good job in floor exer
cises tying for second with 8.95 points.
UNL's only other winner was senior
Gary Duff, who took first place in the
parallel bars with 9.3 points.
"1 don't think we were mentally ready
for trie meet," Allen said. "Before the meet
started I thought we would lose the floor
exercise and win everything else, as it
turned out it was the other way around."
Next weekend, UNL travels to-the
Kansas Invitational in Lawrence.
"If our all-arounders are oh the mark
this weekend we can win the meet, if not
we could fall apart," Allen said.

UNL blanks foe
in field hockey
Crisp 30-degree hockey weather created
a perfect setting for a 7-0 win by the UNL
women's field hockey team over the
University of Iowa Saturday.
Nebraska dominated the match, leading
11:46.3 minutes to 1:41.1 minutes in
penetration time and commiting only three
penalty corners to Iowa's eight.
Center-forward Mary Claire Franssen
and right-inner Sue Hansen each scored a
goal in the first 10 minutes and Hansen
added a third goal midway through, the
half to give Nebraska a 3-0 lead.
Hansen suffered a bruised ankle late in
the first half, and although she sat out the
last two minutes of play, she returned in
the second half.
Four minutes into the second half,
Hansen scored again and 16 minutes later
Franssen added the fifth Nebraska goal.
Franssen scored the final two Nebraska
points two minutes apart, the first with
30 minutes gone in the half.
Left-halfback Deb Collins and left
inner Jane Shandera were substituted
for Tammy Thietje and Marsha Mohl
Collins, usually a starter, sat out the
first half because of a cut hand, field
hockey coach Elizabeth Petrakis said.
