Scene alters for last big football weekend
With Nhr,isknl")k1;ihrm;i nn hn m.a11 1 t
commentary and get right down to business. The season
mark stands at 25 1 -94-8 , for 72.8 percent, as we head into
the last big weekend of the 1979 college football season
Nebraska at Oklahoma-Missouri running back Gerry
Ellis says he favors Oklahoma. Iowa State assistant coach
Bill Dalke says he favors Oklahoma. And if the game had
been played last week, I too probably woiild've picked the
Sooners. Before last Saturday, the Huskers had played
two lackluster games, both on the road, while Oklahoma
had looked like the proverbial runaway freight train. But
the. scenario has changed .
Nebraska regained momentum with a dominating first
half performance against Iowa State on both sides of the
line of scrimmage. Oklahoma, meanwhile, nearly got de
railed by Missouri. No, the Huskers haven't played well
the road this year. But the one time they did was in the
state of Oklahoma, in Stillwater against the Cowboys.
Maybe -areturn trip to Soonerland won't be so bad after
all . . . Nebraska 20, Oklahoma 14
Notre Dame vs. Miami (Fla.) in Tokyo-Yes, Tokyo, as
in Japan. A few years back, when this game was first
scheduled, Irish Coach Dan Devine jokingly said that if his
team was having a bad year in 1979, he could stay over
seas when the campaign was over. Unfortunately for De.
vine, in light of consecutive losses to Tennessee and Clem-

Florida State at Florida-How's this for contrast? The
Seminoles, known more for their basketball success than
football prowess, are 10-0. The Gators, a long-time foot,
ball contender in the Southeastern Conference, are 0-8-1.
With Florida State headed for the Orange Bowl and
Florida headed back to the drawing board, look for both
streaks to continue . . . Florida State 38, Florida 6
UCLA at USC-A UCLA win would bump USC from
the Rose Bowl and put Washington in Pasadena on Jan. 1.
Of course, if you believe that is going to happen, I assume
you also believe Santa Claus will climb down your chim
ney on Christmas Eve and the Board of Regents will waive
all tuition payments for second semester. Fat chance on
all three counts. This will be Charles White's final TV
appaearance before the Heisman voting. Don't thinlhe is
going to waste it . . . USC 45, UCLA 21
