    Missouri’s offense takes ball nowhere in 3rd quarter
By Tim Pearson
Senior Reporter
Coming into its game against Nebraska,
Missouri had been outscored 56-7 in the third
That trend continued Sat
urday against the
Comnuskers, as Nebraska
picked up a 49-7 win.
The Huskers, ahead 21-7
going into halftime, came up
with 14 points in the third
quarter to Missouri’s zero.
But the scoreboard wasn’t
the only place M issouri had a
Qtiill goose egg during me quarter,
bluii The Husker defense pasted a
zero in the total offense category of the Tigers’
stat book.
Missouri coach Bob Stull said his team
wasn’t able to move the ball at all in the second
“When we had the ball to start off the second
half, we were unable to move the ball,” he said.
“We couldn’t get a first down, and we gave
them good field position in the third quarter.”
Stull said the Husker defense played far
better against Missouri than in its performance
against Kansas State. The Huskers gave up 489
yards passing to the Wildcats on Oct. 16, but
still won 45-28.
“People don’t give (the Husker defense)
enough credit,” he said. “Kansas State is a
pretty good team. Nebraska has a good defense
and an excellent football team.”
Tiger defensive end Rick Lyle said the
Huskers came out inspired after last week’s
game against the Wildcats.
“Nebraska seemed like they had something
to prove after the Kansas State game,” Lyle
said. “It was frustrating because we weren’t
making the plays against them.”
The Husker offense also was a key in Ne
braska’s win, Stull said.
“They controlled the line of scrimmage on
both sides,” he said. “It wasn’t anything fancy
they were doing. They were pounding it right at
The running combination of Husker I-back
Calvin Jones and quarterback Tommie Frazier
hurt the Tigers, Stull said.
“They make great plays against everybody,”
he said. “They both are excellent players.”
One instance where the combination of
Frazier and Jones hurt the Tigers was at the end
of the first half.
With the Huskers up 14-7, Frazier connect
ed with Jones for a screen pass that resulted in
a 55-yard touchdown.
Tiger defensive coordinator Skip Hall said
he thought the Tigers had Jones tackled for a
short gam on the play.
“They just swung it out to
the flat, and we did not re
spond well,” Hall said. “A
great back 1 ike Jones is going
to do those kind of things.”
Stull said Jones was de
serving of his preseason All
American pick and proved it
1-*-' A great back makes them
Lyle miss,” he said. “It was just a
little swing pass, and he made
more than one guy miss him. That’s not the way
you want to end the half.”

“That’s why he’s an All-American candi
date and a Heisman Trophy candidate.”
Missouri quarterback Jeff Handy, who threw
for only 104 yards after throwing for 424 last
year against the Huskers, said outside lineback
er Trev Alberts also was deserving of All
American honors.
Alberts had seven tackles and two sacks
against the Tigers.
“Trev came out and played a great game,”
Handy said. “He’s one of the better linebackers
I’ve seen this year.”
Freshman comes up big as Huskers
sweep Tigers for 19th straight time
By Tim Pearson
Senior Reporter
Kate Cmich had played spar
ingly in the Nebraska volleyball
team’s previous 17 matches.
But against Missouri, Cmich
played a key role as a starter in all
three games in the Comhuskcrs’
15-2, 15-8, 15-7 win over the Ti
gers in Columbia, Mo.
Starting in place of freshman
outside hitter Maria Hedbeck,
Cmich, a freshman from River
Forest, 111., had four kills and nine
Husker assistant coach Cathy
Noth said Hedbeck was held out of
the match because she wasn’t feel
ing well.
“We didn’t play Hedbeck be
cause she was under the weather,’’
she said. “Cmich did very well for
“We told her that she’s going to
make some mistakes but she should
just keep plugging away.”
Noth said the match against Mis
souri progressed like she thought it
The Huskers won their 25th
straight match against Missouri.
Overall, Nebraska is 38-2 against
the Tigers. The Huskers’ last 19
wins against the Tigers have come
in three-game sweeps.
“It’s what I expected,” Noth said.
“We handled the ball well, and we
distributed the ball well.”
Sophomore middle blocker
Allison Weston led the Huskers
with 13 kills. It was the 14th time in
18 matches that Weston has had 10
or more kills. Weston also led the
team with 12 digs.
Noth said she was happy with
the play of junior outside hitter
Kelly Aspegren, who had 10 kills
and a team-leading .643 hitting
“Aspegren was just Allie
(Weston) in kills,” she said. “She
usually doesn’t get as many attacks
as everyone else. It was a good
match lor her.”
Noth said the win over Missouri
was a good tune-up for this week’s
action against Kansas State on
Wednesday in Manhattan, Kan.,
and against Colorado on Saturday
in Lincoln.
The Huskers have been prepar
ing for the Colorado match ever
since the Buffaloes defeated the
Huskers in five games in Boulder
on Oct. 13, Noth said.
“Everything the past two weeks
has been geared toward Colorado,”
she said. “There’s not a practice
that doesn’t go by where we don’t
run the Colorado offense.”
But the Comhuskers won ’ t over
look Kansas State, Noth said. The
Huskers defeated the Wildcats ear
lier this season in Lincoln in Ne
braska’s Big Eight opener.
“We’ll be ready,” she said. “We
just have to focus on our side of the
net and working on different
“Our improvement is going to
have to come in ball-handling. We
have to get to get the ball to Nikki
(setter Strieker),” she said. “When
we distribute the ball, we can ter
minate for a kill.”

Bentz said. “We’re in a good spot.”
Nebraska Aquatics hosted the
three-day meet, which began Friday
and ran through Sunday. The meet

the 50-yard freestyle, 500-yard
freestyle, 100-yard freestyle,200-yard

In the second half, Nebraska rolled
to four more touchdowns on drives of
45,36, 59 and 54 yards.
