Shutout bolsters Blackshirt pride
By Derek Samson
Senior Reporter
After a 57-0 shutout of Missouri
Saturday, Nebraska’s defense has
started to mirror what it did last
And with four of its last five
opponents rated in the top 15, it
better hope it is.
Last year, Nebraska gave up 74
points in a three-game stretch in
non-conference action, and oppo
nents averaged 38^ yards of of
* leiise*luTmga&o*e games? "
_ But once the Huskers started Big
Eight play, they only gave up 65
points in the final seven games.
This year, Nebraska allowed 87
points in its first five games, includ
ing 38 points and 796 total yards to
Michigan State and Arizona State
But now, it’s conference time.
Free safety Tony Veland said
with the quality of the Big Eight,
the Husker defense knew it had to
“We’ve been giving up way too
many points all season,” Veland
said. “It was a goal (a shutout) we
set this season, and one we hadn’t
met until (Saturday). So it was real
“It wasn’t so much what people
were saying, it was just ourselves.
We knew we could play better. We
“We knew we had to come in here and play
well because we have a lot of good teams
commg up. ”
Nebraska free safety
knew we had to come in here and
play well because we have a lot of
good teams coming up. The Big
Eight Conference is probably the
best in the nation right now.”
Linebacker Jared TOmich said
the defense finally felt good when it
walked off the field and glanced at
the score.
“It’s a good feeling to see that
egg on the board,” he said. “We’ve
been trying to do that all year. We
put the emphasis on that every game
—trying to keep that zero up there.
It was by far the best performance
of the year. Defensively, wc were
Not only did the Huskers not
allow a point, but they also held the
Tigers to only 122 yards of total
Junior rover Mike Minter, who
called the Husker defense dominat
ing, said that allowing only 122
yards was the biggest statement
made by the Huskers Saturday.
“That was real important because
we’ve been looking for that all sea
son,” Minter said. “We knew we
had the ability to do it, and we just
wanted to prove to everybody in the -
nation that we have a tough de
“Their total offense showed that
everybody came up and played big.
That’s the biggest part of it — ev
erybody did their job.”
The shutout came a week after
Kansas State blanked the Tigers
30-0, and Missouri coach Larry
Smith vowed to revamp the offense.
Tomich said Missouri’s changes
caused problems in practice, but
not in the game.
“We were a little antsy because
they had their practices closed all
week, and we weren’t sure what
they were going to come out with,”
he said. “They didn’t do anything
that was too much different. They
came out with a little option, but we
run against the option every day in
practice, so I don’t know what they
were thinking.”
Women’s golf second in Kansas
From Staff Reports
The Nebraska women’s golf team
finished in second place after lead
ing the Marilyn Smith/Sunflower
Classic at Wichita, Kan., after the
first day.
The Comhuskers shot a final round
335 Tuesday as Southern Methodist
took the team title by seven strokes.
Nebraska’s Heidi Wall, who went into
the day tied for first, shot an 84 to
finish second.
The Husker men’s golf team
placed seventh Tuesday at the Kroger
Intercollegiate Invite at Memphis,
Tenn. Nebraska shot a final round
309 to move from 10th to seventh.
Sophomore Trent Morrison led the
Huskers individually, tying for 10th
Continued from Page 7
One play in that game which Snyder
was questioned about Tuesday was a
pass from running back J.J. Smith
intended for May. But Huskcr
comcrback Tyrone Williams inter
cepted the pass at the Nebraska goal
line and stopped a Wildcat threat.
Snyder said he didn’t gamble more
in his play calling against the Huskers
than against other teams.
“That pass that J.J. threw and got
intercepted, I didn’t see it as a gamble,”
Snyder said. “Todo it isjust part of the
way you are playing. If everything is
strictly by the book, you become very
Last season at Manhattan, Kansas
State was supposed to have an advan
tage with Nebraska using third-string
quarterback Matt Turman as the
starter. Instead, Nebraska won 17-6,
and the Husker defense held the Wild
cats to 242 yards of total offense.
Kansas State changed its offense
that game, going with a four-wide
receiver set for most of the game in
stead of the one-back, one-tight end
Snyder said he hoped his players
would remain confident after the past
four games against Nebraska.
“What you’d like them to under
stand is if you don’t play well against
the University of Nebraska, you can’t
win,” Snyder said. “If you play well
and put it all together on both sides of
the ball, you definitely have a chance.”
• Nebraska linebacker Phil Ellis
returned to practice Tuesday for the
first time since breaking his footTnorc
than two weeks ago. Backup quarter
back Brook Berringer continued to
miss practice with a sore knee, but was
able to jog.
