light came on a 61-yard fumble return
by junior Will linebacker Julius Jackson
for a touchdown.
NU Coach Frank Solich said he was
impressed by die entire team’s effort
“We had put in a lot of offense and
defense, which can be confusing,”
Solich said. “The defense has the ability
to be great, with great speed.”
Offensively, Solich said, inexperi

ing quarterback and the offensive line.
The Nebraska backfield was a little
shorthanded, as well, with first-string I
back DeAngelo Evans and first-string
fullback Joel Makovicka held out
because of injuries.
But the quarterbacks began their
battle for the starting job Saturday, and
junior Frankie London and sophomore
Bobby Newcombe had their share of
Newcombe rushed 10 times for 58
yards, including a 23-yard run.
Newcombe led the first-team offense to
a touchdown against the first-team
defense, completing two passes for 44
yards on the drive.
NU falls short of NCAA meet
By Darren Ivy
Saturday’s NCAA West
Regional Championships in
Norman, Okla., aroused a bad case
of d6j& vu for many members of die
Nebraska men’s gymnastics team.
The team failed to qualify for the
NCAA Championships for the third
Junior All-American Marshall
Nelson said he couldn’t believe the
Comhuskers had failed to qualify
despite their No. 2 ranking.
“I thought we had the team to go
all the way,” Nelson said. “I still
think we do.
“It’s a crazy sport. You can have a
good day and beat any team in the
country or you can have a bad day
and be left at home.”
Top-ranked California won the
meet with a score of 231.450 while
Brigham Young was second with a
score of228.850. Oklahoma placed
third with 228.450 points, and NU
was fourth with a score of228.075.
NU almost overcame its poor
performance by scoring season-high
scores in the last two events, but the
Huskers fell .375 points short of OU.
Despite not advancing as a team,
NU had 11 qualifiers, an accom
plishment that Allen said was nice,
“but itls not why I am coaching.”
Jason Hardabura and Derek
Leiter qualified in the all-around
event while Jim Koziol placed in the
pommel horse and still rings. Bill
Mulholland qualified in the pommel
horse and vault and Blake Bukacek
placed in the high-bar event
Allen said NU will take time off
and then gear up for nationals.
“We are not done,” Allen said.
“We are going to grind our asses

yards and was 2-for-3 passing for 28
Newcombe said he was pleased with
his opening-scrimmage performance,
especially after a slow start, which
included a fumble cm his first snap.
“I felt real comfortable out there at
the end,” Newcombe said. “On that last
drive, it was flowing naturally.
“This time around, 1 knew a lot
more about the offense than I did last
fall. I understand a lot more.”
Solich said it was difficult for the
quarterbacks to be productive because
of weak pass protection, but said both
London and Newcombe overcame it,
with “the ability to make things happen.”
Overall, Solich said, Nebraska
accomplished its goal to stay injury-free
and compete hard.
“We didn’t have any major injuries -
that was aphis,” Solich said. *1 was sat

“A goal was to be 6-0 in the Big

for anything less than winning. We
could beat a lot of people if we keep
playing like we’re playing.”
Men’s tennis team falls
The Nebraska men’s tennis team
fell 6-1 to 38th-ranked Colorado

singles matches and two of three

The outcome was much different
from the two teams’ last meeting,
when then-No. 1 Notre Dame won
6-0 in the second round of the 1997
“The last time they thumped us,”
Walker said. “It was important for us
to give a good effort.”
Kim Engesser, who led the
nation in scoring last fall, got
Nebraska on the board.
Walker said the defense was
impressive in shutting down the top
scoring team in the country, consid
ering that one of Notre Dame’s goals
came on a penalty kick.
But in the physical game, NU
defender Heather Brown hurt her
knee. Walker said they hadn’t diag
nosed it yet, but said it could be an

Even though it was a spring
game, Walker said, the match will
give the Huskers a good measure of
where they stand nationally.
“Notre Dame is the No. 1 or No.
2 team in the country,” Walker said.
“We are probably No. 6 or No. 7.”
