Nebraska Cornhuskers water down Hawaiian punch
By Buck Mahoney
The Nebraska Cornhuskers threw every
thing and everybody at the Hawaii Rain
bow Warriors Saturday and came away
with a 56-10 victory.
UNL took charge early when they
scored on their first possession on a ten
yard run by LM.Hipp. The Huskers scored
four more times by halftime to take a 35-0
lead and were never tested in the second
Nebraska scored on every possession
except one in the second quarter. Touch
downs came on an 1 1 -yard run by fullback
Andra Franklin, a one-yard plunge by
quarterback Tom Sorley, a 39 -yard pass
from Sorley to split end Frank Lockett and
a 52-yard punt return by wingback Kenny
Sorley's touchdown plunge was set up
by a freak kickoff play. Kicker Billy Todd
lifted a high kickoff that Hawaii failed
to return. Husker defensive end Dan Lind
strom recovered the loose ball on the
Iindstrom, a sophomore from Oakland.
Neb., said the short kickoff was a result of
something the coaches saw in Hawaii game
films. When the Huskers lined up for the
kick, they saw that Hawaii might not be
prepared for the short kick.
"Everyone knew where the ball was
going to be kicked," Iindstrom said. "1
was kind of surprised, the ball just seemed
to be rolling around there.
"Everyone was just fighting for the ball.
There must have been four or six hands
on the ball. I'm just glad they gave it tc
End zone plunge
Four plays later, Sorley plunged intc
the end zone from one yard out. He ther
hit tight end Junior Miller for a two poinl
conversion to make the score 21-0.
For Lockett, a former junior college All
American, his touchdown reception was hi:
first catch ever as a Husker. Lockett had i
chance to score earlier in the quarter, bui
the pass from Sorley was out of his reach
He said the touchdown pass came on i
"It was a one-fade. If the defensive back
is on me tight, I just take off. And if he
plays back, I show block and then go,"
Lockett did take off past the defendei
and was not bothered on his catch.
"The ball was thrown over the left
shoulder," he said. "It was a perfect pass."
On Hawaii's following possession, the
Rainbows were forced to punt from their
own 16. Greg Cummins punt came to
Brown on the Nebraska 48 and Brown
picked his way down the right sideline for
a 52 yard return and the Huskers' last
touchdown of the half.
UNL added three more scores in the
second half with the first one coming on a
nine-yard run by fullback Rick Berns in
the third quarter.
Craig Johnson and Jim Kotera both
scored touchdowns in their first
appearances in the varsity backfield.
Kotera, a sophomore fullback from
Omaha, scored from three yards out with
12:24 left in the game.
Johnson, a sophomore I-back from
Omaha scored a one yard touchdown with
6:56 remaining in the game.
Hawaii scored its 10 points in the third
quarter when quarterback Jeff Duva hit
aide receiver Wayne Black for an 11 yard
touchdown, and Peter Kim kicked a 49
yard field goal.
Besides showing the Rainbows a lot of
new faces in the game, the Huskers also
used a new formation, the split back or
"It is just something we've worked on
and we wanted to use it and take a look
at it," head coach Tom Osborne said after
"I am pleased and I think that this
is the best we've played as a team so far,"
he said. "The game was relatively penalty
free and there were not too many bad
mistakes on defense."
In spite of the lopsided score, Osborne
said he still felt that Hawaii had a good
"If we'd made mistakes like we did
last week, it would have been a close
game," he said. "I think we played better,
our execution was good."
Osborne had some post game praise for
Sorley and the audibles that he called
at the line of scrimmage.
"Some of our better plays were audi
bles; his experience is beginning to show,"
