DEFENSE from page 9
without problems going into
Saturday’s game. Penalties and
turnovers have plagued Nebraska so
far this season. The last two games
have elicited seven turnovers, 15
penalties for a loss of 122 yards and
numerous halted drives because of
those mistakes.
“We’v$,4iad way too many
turnovers and way too many penal
ties,” said NU wingback Bobby.
Newcombe. “We’ve got to find a way
to stop it. Discipline somebody in
practice. That has to be cleared up
before we play a big-time opponent.”
NU’s remedy for players who
make mistakes during practice is
extra running time, Solich said.
Crouch said the plan is working so
far, and less mistakes are being made.
If NU can solve its own problems,
it still has OSU’s defense to worry
about - especially considering what
happened last year - when the
Cowboys, who haven’t won in the
series since 1961, held Nebraska to
less 100 yards rushing and only 205
total yards.
They did it with a gimmick
defense, a 5-2 alignment of sorts that
clogged up the middle. The defense
was never sufficiently solved, but the
Huskers did hit a few long option
passes to tight end Sheldon Jackson.
Like last year, Oklahoma State
(2-1 and 0-0) had two weeks to pre
pare for this game, which could give
Bob Simmons, OSU head coach and
defensive specialist, more time to
revamp the defense, switch it back to
the 5-2, or devise a brand-new
defense to stop Nebraska.
It’s not a situation Solich loves.
“Without question it gives them
extra time for preparation,” Solich
said. “I wouldn’t mind having an
extra week of preparation for
Oklahoma State, but it’s not going to
happen. Now is the time to make
major changes. So they have that
But OSU has problems of its own.
One is injuries - quarterback Tony
Lindsay and top linebacker Kenyatta
Wright probably won’t play, and tail
back Nathan Simmons still isn’t 100
percent. Another is inexperience,
especially at quarterback. The
Cowboys have some talented
receivers, but quarterbacks B. J. Tiger
and Ben Bowling have to find a way
to get them the ball.
That’s a good sign for the Husker
defense, which, to this point, has car
ried the team. Maybe the scariest ele
ment is the defense might be gaining
confidence, said Defensive
Coordinator Charlie McBride.
“They’re building,” McBride
said. “Especially the players that did
n’t have much experience, like the
rush ends. From this time a year ago,
we’ve cut down on the big play. That’s
the difference right there.”
No “bad blood’ between
NU, A&M in rematch
POWERS from page 9
The Aggies (9-1 and 3-0) are
known for good passing skills, he
said. They have a lot of balance and
have several players capable of scor
Junior Nicky Thrasher, who has
scored 23 points on nine goals and
five assists, leads the Aggie attack.
She was last week’s Big 12 Soccer
Player of the Week.
Walker said aggressive play and
excellent coaching are also trade
marks of A&M.
NU-will encounter more familiar
coaching when they travel to Austin
bn Sunday to take on Texas at 1 p.m.
Texas (5-3 and 2-1) is led by first
year Head Coach Chris Petrucelli, for
merly from Notre Dame. The Huskers
lost to the Irish in each of the past two
NCAA tournaments.
Petrucelli, Walker said, brings a
good track record and fresh outlook to
the Longhorns.
“Most of our games with Texas
have come down to one goal,” Walker
said. “We know they will give us a
battle, and there is no way we will take
them lightly.”
The key to NU’s weekend will be
playing with composure, Walker said.
“Texas A&M will have a crowd of
over 2,000 fans, and it will be a bois
terous atmosphere,” he said. “It is one
of the tougher places to play.”
While the weekend’s games will
be important in determining the Big
12 outlook, Walker said, it won’t set
the final conference standings.
“We beat A&M last season and
still didn’t win the Big 12 season
title,” he said. “So to say that this
game (A&M) is the only game that
matters just isn’t true.”
