Talk of Miami's sunny beaches sifted
through Memorial Stadium's lounge fol
lowing Nebraska's 49-0 win over Iowa
State Saturday.
The weather may have had some
thing to do with it. Temperatures
hovered near 30 degrees and a brisk
northerly wind blew during the game.
But several players gave another rea
son for talking about the Sunshine
State's largest city. They anticipate a
New Year's day clash in Miami with
undefeated Penn State in the Orange
It's a possibility, too. Florida, which
was ranked ahead of Nebraska and
Penn State in the Associated Press
poll, lost to Georgia Saturday 24-3. The
Gators aren't ranked in United Press
International's poll because they're on
NCAA probation.

A Taylor of a different type led the
Nebraska junior varsity to a 48-7 victory
over Ellsworth Junior College Friday at
Memorial Stadium.
Jeff Taylor, a redshirt sophomore,
replaced freshman quarterback Steve
Taylor and led the Cornhuskers to their
fifth victory of the season.
"Jeff and Steve are two different
types of quarterbacks," said Nebraska
junior varsity coach Dan Young. "Steve
is more of a big play type quarterback

"That makes us a legitimate No, 2,"
said fullback Tom Rathman, who rushed
for 97 yards and a touchdown against
the Cyclones.
Rathman said he would like to play
the Nittany Lions, but, "They may be
out for a little revenge because of the
Kickoff Classic." The Huskers trounced
Penn State 44-0 in the inaugural game
two years ago.
Defensive tackle Jim Skow said he
would "just love" to play the Nittany
Lions for the national title.
"I'm not looking forward to it, but
I'm not putting it out of my mind," he
Skow hesitated to make an early

Sooners, Penn State has Notre Dame

back Alex Espinoza for an 8-yard loss in
the second quarter to tie a Nebraska
record for most career tackles for a

"Records are fine," Skow said, "but
let's go to Miami."
Husker linebacker Mi ' e Knox shared
Skow's controlled anticipation.
"We'd like to win the national
championship, but we have a couple of
tough games ahead of us," Knox said as
he munched on a roast beef sandwich
after the game. "Kansas and Oklahoma
aren't going to be cakewalks."
Against the Cyclones, Nebraska rolled
up 573 yards, including 538 on the
ground. Iowa State mustered only 137
yards total offense and seven first
and returned it 28 yards to the Ells
worth 6-yard line.
Taylor then added Nebraska's second
touchdown one play later when he
scored on a 1-yard run.
After the ensuing kickoff running
back Darren Myles fumbled on Ells
worth's first play from scrimmage and
Nebraska's Mike Mauch recovered at
the Ellsworth 21-yard line.
From there, it took the Huskers four
plays to increase their lead to 20-0.

Chris Johnson was no good.

was to use nine or 10 people and give
those people some playing time," Pet

sick, and I wanted to give her some
playing time. Angie Millikin has worked
hard in practice, and I wanted to see
what she could do and Lori Endicott is
returning from a sprained ankle."
The Cyclones were 12-12 going into
the match and 0-7 in Big Eight play.

Seven players scorjd touchdowns for
Nebraska. Quarterback McCathorn
Clayton was the first, scoring on a 3
yard run with 6:29 left in the first quar
ter. I-back Doug DuBose scored the
second touchdown. His 3-yard touch
down run came two plays after he left
the game with an eye injury. DuBose
was poked in the eye by a Cyclone
player when he was driven out of bounds
after a 5-yard pitch play.
"He was sweeping to the outside,
trying to get a piece of me," he said.
"He caught me in the face."
That hurt, DuBose said.
"I thought my eyeball fell out," he
said. "But once I knew I still had my
eyeball, I knew I'd be all right."
DuBose recovered and finished with
1 14 yards rushing. That total gave him
1,006 yards rushing for the season. In
doing so, he became the third Husker
Nebraska then added its last score

Mike Preston hit wingback Richard
Bell with a 7-yard touchdown pass with
:45 remaining in the half.
"Defensively, we really played well
because Ellsworth is the type of team
who can score a lot of points," Young
said. "Offensively, we moved the ball
pretty well throughout the game."
The Huskers added three more touch
downs after halftime.
Taylor scored Nebraska's first touch
down of the second half on an 8-yard
run and Tyreese Knox had an 8-yard
