    Old rivals
renew battle
By Jay Saunders
Staff Reporter
Saturday’s installment of the Red
River Battle is a tale of two football
teams heading in opposite directions.
No. 25 Texas (3-2) is looking to
gain momentum after a 71-14 thrash
ing of Oklahoma State last Saturday.
The 0-4 Sooners are reeling after a 52
24 loss to Kansas.
“We will talk about the history of
the game,” Texas Coach John
Mackovic said, “but being an under
dog or a favorite doesn’t mean very
Texas leads the all-time series 52
33-5 and has won five of the last seven
“Every inch of this game is excit
ing,” OU Coach John Blake said.
The game will begin at 2:30 p.m.
at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

What also might help the Huskers

from back spasms.

relieved Watson in the first quarter of
Baylor’s 45-24 loss to Texas Tfech last
Saturday, will earn his first career start.
Nebraska will be without No. 11
back Ahman Green (toe sprain) and
third-string fullback Billy Legate (sore
hamstring). Senior Damon Benning,
who sat out last weekend with a groin
pull, is scheduled to start Saturday and
will be backed up by true freshman
DeAngelo Evans.
In addition, second-string fullback
Joel Makovicka has been slowed by a
hamstring injury this week and will see
limited action Saturday.
One Husker who is doing well is
place-kicker Kris Brown. Last week
against Kansas State Brown hit a ca
reer-best four field goals, including a
50-yarder right before halftime to give
Nebraska an 18-3 lead.
Brown, from Southlake, Texas, said
he is looking forward to playing a team
from his home state for the first time
in his career.
“We want to show these Texas
schools what real football is all about,”
Brown said.
However, for Terrell Farley, this
week’s Big, 12 defensive player of the
week, Baylor presents another chance
for the senior from Columbus, Ga., to
go out and have fun.
Against KSU, Farley recorded five
tackles, a four-yard sack and three
quarterback hurries and tackled KSU
punter Chad Romano for an 11-yard
loss in the first quarter. .
“Playing football is just like being
a clown,” Farley said. “You’re danc
ing around and throwing water or paint
ob somebody. It’s all fun, that’s what
football is all about.”
The first-year OSU
program has had its
ups and downs this
By Jay Saunders
For most first-year soccer pro
grams, heading into a game against
the nation’s No. 6 team would be a
terrifying experience.
That is not the case for Okla
homa State. The Cowgirls will face
its third straight ranked opponent,
Nebraska, tonight at 7:30. OSU, 6
4-1, is coming off losses to No. 21
Texas and seventh-ranked Texas
Coach Karen Hancock, who
came to Stillwater from South Ala
bama, said OSU’s winning record
is deceiving.
“With a young program, you will
have mistakes on the field that you
wouldn’t have with a more experi
enced team,” Hancock said.
The Cowgirls come to Lincoln
with a rash of injuries, which
Hancock said has hurt the first-year
program a great deal.
“We continue to see improve
ment,” she said, “but on the flip
side, we sometimes have to take out
some of the stars due to injury. It is
hard to see the improvements in the
next game.”
Oklahoma State does not have
any seniors cm its roster, leaving a

large burden of responsibility on
young players, Hancock said.
A pair of freshmen from Okla
homa has provided the scoring
punch for the Cowgirls. Sally
Holmes is Oklahoma State’s lead
ing scorer with 10 goals and two
assists so far this season. Her team
mate Robin Rampey has scored
seven goals.
“It is not every day you get to
play such a high-caliber team like
Nebraska,” Hancock said. “You
can’t be afraid to play good teams.”
And as long as the unpredictable
Nebraska weather stays bearable to
night, Hancock said, she expects to
be pleased with her team’s first visit
to Lincoln. J
“I understand you guys are hav
ing good weather up there,”
Hancock said. “I am excited about
that, because you never can tell
when you go to Nebraska.”

Orioles even series;
Gaetti lifts St. Louis
NEW YORK (AP) — There were
no 12-year-olds to foul things up for
the Orioles this time.
Rafael Palmeiro hit a two-run
homer in the seventh inning Thursday,
lifting Baltimore to a 5-3 victory over
the New York Yankees to even the
American League championship series
at one win apiece.
Palmeiro’s shot to right-center off
loser Jeff Nelson snapped a 2-2 tie and
gave the Orioles a reason to celebrate
less than 24 hours after a possible win
in game one was stolen away by a 12
year-old Yankees fan.
The youngster, Jeff Maier, leaned
over the right-field wall and interfered
with Orioles’ outfielder Tony Tarasco
in the eighth inning of Wednesday’s
game, turning a routine flyout into a
game-tying homer by Derek Jeter. The
Yankees went on to win the game 5-4
in 11 innings.
The best-of-seven series shifts to
Baltimore’s Camden Yards for Game
3 on Friday night.
With the score tied at two on Thurs
day, Roberto Alomar doubled down the
left-field line with one out in the sev
enth off Nelson. Palmeiro hit a 3-1
pitch over the wall in right-center.
Baltimore starter David Wells
pitched out of serious trouble in the
fifth and sixth innings before leaving
with runners at first and second in the
seventh. Wells gave up eight hits over
6 2-3 innings for the win.
Todd Zeile also homered for the
The Yankees cut it to 4-3 in the sev
enth on Cecil Fielder’s RBI single off
reliever Alan Mills. But the Orioles got
an important insurance run in the eighth
on Alomar’s sacrifice fly.
With Brady Anderson at third,
Alomar lifted a ball down the right
field line. Paul O’Neill caught it in foul
territory but couldn’t make a play on
The Yankees threatened to come
back again in the ninth. Jeter singled
off Randy Myers and with one out
Bernie Williams walked. Armando
Benitez came on and got Fielder to pop
up for the second out and got Tino
Martinez on a routine fly ball to right
for the save to end the 4-hour, 13
minute game.
In Atlanta, St. Louis’ veteran Gary
Gaetti crushed a grand slam off Greg
Maddux in a five-run seventh inning
to break open the Cardinals’ 8-3 win
over the Bn
The St. is victory evened the
National League Championship Series
at one game apiece and snapped

winning streak. The best-of-seven se
ries shifts to St. Louis Saturday.
