Trip home thrills Jahnke
Huskers to face No. 1 Penn State, Wisconsin
JAHNKE from page 9
this weekend’s tournament on her
calendar when it was first
announced Nebraska would be vis
iting her home state.
The 6-foot middle blocker from
West Bend, Wis., is expecting a
large contingency from West Bend
to greet her and the Huskers.
“It’ll be fun to show people how
much I’ve come along over the last
two years.” Jahnke said.
Jahnke chose NU over several
schools, including Wisconsin, and
said she would like nothing more
than to perform well in front of her
friends and family.
She redshirted last year after
undergoing reconstruction surgery
on her right knee.
Now in her second year in
Lincoln and her first playing in a
Husker uniform, Jahnke has the
highest hitting percentage on the
team, .338. She has 39 kills and
averages 1.56 per game.
“I’m happy with the way I’ve
played so far this year,” Jahnke
said. “But there’s still a lot I can do
for the team as far as blocking and
Jahnke and the No. 5 Huskers
will take on the top-ranked Penn
State on Friday night and play the
12th-ranked Badgers on Saturday
Texas will be the other Big 12
participant, but will not play
against the Huskers.
“This weekend is really big,”
Jahnke said. “I hope (going home)
will fire me up, especially for the
Penn State match.”
In high school, Jahnke led West
Bend East to two state titles and
was named a third-team All
American. She was also a member
of the 1995 U.S. Junior National
Jahnke played on several
Wisconsin club teams, and many of
those players will be on the other
side of the net this weekend when
NU faces Wisconsin.
“There’s a rivalry between us,
but it’s a friendly rivalry.” Jahnke
“We’re good friends, but when
they are on the other side of the net,
then it’s different.”
Sometimes athletes experience
unpleasant welcomes when they
choose to leave their home-state
university, but Jahnke expects a
“We’ll just see how the crowd
reacts.” Jahnke said. “I think they’ll
cheer for me.”

we didn’t prepare real well for that.
And it showed up on game day,”
On opponents’ home fields last
season, Frost completed 41 percent
of his passes for an average of 93.8
yards per game. At Memorial
Stadium, Frost completed 60 percent
of his passes for an average of 136.5
yards per game. But statistics, Frost
said, don’t tell the whole story.
“I think I struggled a little bit in
the early games on the road last year,”
Frost said. “You can look at my statis
tics, and say I struggled, but I think
the whole team just struggled on the
road early last year. Part of that was
because we weren’t as good on
offense as we needed to be early in
the season. And when we were put in
a little bit tougher circumstances, I
think that showed up a little bit.”
Despite Frost’s struggles last sea
son, Osborne expressed no doubts
about Frost’s ability.
“I have no apprehensions on the
road with him,” Osborne said. “But
people have to understand you don’t
win a game with just a quarterback.”
This year’s Husker offense as a
whole has improved, Frost said.
“We’re definitely a better offense
this year, there’s no question about
it,” Frost said, “but we need to show
that on a road game early in the sea

Longhorn loss sets records
From The Associated Press
Think big Texas, because the
Longhorns just endured the biggest
defeat by any team ever ranked in The
Associated Press college football poll.
Texas’ 66-3 loss to UCLA on
Saturday in Austin, Texas, was the
largest losing margin since the AP poll
began in 1936. The Longhorns (1-1)
were No. 11 entering the game.
The previous mark was set on Nov.
17, 1945, when No. 6 Penn State lost
to No. 1 Army 61-0.
In addition, the 66 points allowed
by Texas was the third largest given up
by a ranked team. Northern Illinois
beat No. 24 Fresno State 73-18 on
Oct. 6, 1990, and No. 25 UCLA beat
No. 19 Brigham Young 68-14 on Oct.
Since the AP went to a top 25 for
mat in 1989, Texas became the highest
ranked team to tumble out of the poll
in one week. The last No. 11 team to
lose and drop out the next week was
Texas A&M, after a 27-0 loss to No.
17 LSU on Sept. 3,1988.
On Sept. 26, 1987, No. 10
Arkansas dropped out after losing to
No. 5 Miami 51-7.
The highest ranked team to fall out
of the Top 20 in one week’s time was
No. 2 Oklahoma, after a 45-13 loss to
No. 10 Northwestern on Sept. 26,
Penn State remained No. 1 in this
week’s AP poll, while Nebraska oppo
