The Husker defense hqd four sacks on the day. 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 season. 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 combined. 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 improve. “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 important. “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. ” TONY VELAND 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 sound.” Not only did the Huskers not allow a point, but they also held the Tigers to only 122 yards of total offense. 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 fense. “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 place. Snyder 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 predictable.” 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 set. 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.” NOTE: • 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.
