Tigers hope to step forward
By Trevor Parks
Staff Reporter
After a 24-15 victory over Okla
homa State last Saturday, the Mis
souri football team took another step.
Tiger coach Larry Smith said he
was hoping his team could take an
even bigger step this weekend with a
victory over No. 2 Nebraska.
Missouri, 2-4. plays host to 7-0
Nebraska at 1:08 p.m. Saturday at
Columbia, Mo.
“We took another step as a foot
ball team, in terms of just playing
team football,” Smith said. “We made
plays in all areas early in the game
and got ourselves on the board up 14
Smith had been looking for that
offensive explosion all season. But
until last weekend against the Cow
boys, the Tigers had only scored
seven first-quarter points all year.
Not only have the Tigers struggled
scoring early, but they haven't had
much success at home either.
The Tigers arc 0-3 at home this
season, with their only two victories
— against Houston and Oklahoma
State — in games on the road.
Smith said the team had kept the
same daily schedules, but it may have
been a little more focused in the two
road wins.

its a tough task in coaching his first
game ever against the Huskers.
Missouri hasn ’t beaten Nebraska
since a 35-31 victory in Lincoln in
And Missouri hasn’t beaten the
Huskers in Columbia since 1973.
Winning this weekend may be
tough considering that the Husker
defense is coming off a big win
against Chad May and Kansas State.
The Husker defense held the Wild
cats to just 242 yards of total offense.
Smith said he was impressed with
the way Nebraska contained Kansas
State last Saturday.
“I thought their defense was su
per-dominant,” Smith said. “They
nave great athletes in the secondary.
and they just tee those guys up in
front and let them go.”
On the Nebraska offensive side of
the ball, Smith said the Tigers still
needed to be concerned about Brook
Berringer, even though Tommie
Frazier is out.
Smith said the biggest difference
between Berringer and Frazier was
in their big-play ability.
“Berringer runs the option and
runs it very well and has hurt people
with him keeping the football,” Smith
said. “But Frazier was a threat when
ever he touched the ball.”
Smith said he knew a little about
what it was like to play without a key
Before last Saturday’s game
against Oklahoma State, Smith sus
pended starting linebacker Darryl
Major for violating team policy.
“Other guys have got to step it up,”
Smith said. “Basically that's what
happened to us.”

stepped it up was 1-back Lawrence
Smith said he first saw Phillips in
high school when he was the coach
at Southern California.
“He’s an extremely physical, tal
ented young person,” Smith said.
“The more times he is given the ball,
the more times he wants it. That’s
what a good running back does.”
NU soccer ready for tough trip
ly Todd Walkuhoft
Staff Reporter
The Nebraska soccer team is look
ing at its toughest challenge of the
season as it prepares to face third
ranked Stanford this weekend.
The Cornhuskers will travel to
Colorado Springs, Colo., to compete
against both Colorado College and
Nebraska enters this weekend 10
2 and currently holds a six-game win
ning streak.
Nebraska coach John Walker said
his team should go into this weekend
healthy and rested.
“We were battered and bruised,”
Walker said, “but we had five days to
get ready.”
The Huskcrs have their work cut
out for them this weekend. Walker
“We play the No. 3 team in the
country on Sunday, and we play Colo
rado College on Saturday, who is tra
ditionally tough,” he said.
Despite Colorado College’s 3-6-3
record, Walker said it had played a
tough schedule and was a perennial
final four team.
Sunday afternoon, the Huskers
will face their toughest challenge of
the season when they meet Stanford.
The Cardinal are 10-1 with their only
loss being a 1-0 setback to North
Stanford has been dominating this
year, outscoring its opponents 28-5.
Also, the Cardinal have outshot their
opponents 225-83.
“Obviously they are a very tough
team,” Walker said.
But the Huskers are not traveling
to Colorado expecting a‘lo4s this
Walker said the Huskers needed a
NK - •
combined effort from everyone to end
the weekend with two wins.
“We have to battle them every
minute,” he said. “If we play well,
we’ll win. If we don’t, we’ll lose.”
Stanford also will have an extra
day of rest that could help with the
high altitude in Colorado.
“They have 48 hours rest vs. our
24,” Walker said, “but that’s life, and
there’s nothing we can do about it.”
Playing one of the best teams in
the country will let the first-year
Husker program see how it stands
against other programs.
But Walker said the team was not
concerned with national perception.
“This will show what we are ca
pable of,” he said. “It’s not so much
what others think about us, but what
we think about ourselves.
“It’s going to be a tough weekend,
but I think we are ready for it.”
