24 Turnovers hurt Nebraska Seminoles upset 'Huskers, 18-14 CO LINCOLN, Neb. (UPI) — The Nebraska Cornhuskers, proud of their showing in three earlier games that vaulted them into a No. 3 national ranking, made too many mistakes against an equally proud Florida State team rebounding from a bitter defeat a week ago. After the Seminoles' 18-14 upset victory over Nebraska, both head coaches agreed the Cornhuskers' errors determined the game's outcome. Coach Tom Osborne said his Nebraska players "couldn't overcome our First downs Rushes-yards Passing yards Return yards Passes Punts Fumbles-lost Penalties-yards FSU 15 «.0— 12 154 33 15—26—0 7—48.4 2—1 2—22 Neb 21 39—201 167 2 15—30—2 5—44.6 4—2 6—67 mistakes in the third quarter; we played terrible offensive football." But he credited Florida State with hitting hard and creating some of the Nebraska turnovers, which included two pass interceptions and two lost fumbles. AAcPherson stops Tabor, 36-20 McPHERSON, Kan. (UPI) - Car- Iton Williams had 14 solo tackles and Gerald Henderson rushed for 151 yards on 23 carries to power McPherson over Tabor 36-20 Saturday afternoon in a Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference game. McPherson, 1-2, never trailed in the game. Walt Gaston caught touchdown passes of 7 and 32 yards. Greg Grant added 109 yards rushing for McPherson. In addition to the scoring passes to Gaston, John Rutledge threw a 5-yard scoring pass to Robbie Culbreath. Grant scored on a 54-yard run and Keith Hunter scored for McPherson with a 30-yard run. Williams added a safety for McPherson with a third quarter tackle of Tabor quarterback Rob Wallace. &Wallace of Tabor scored with on a 1- yard run and threw scoring strikes to Bobby Wayman and Mark Sandall. Tabor is 0-3. Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said, "We couldn't have overcome them without their turnovers." The Seminoles, trailing 14-3 at the half, shut down the high-powered Nebraska offense in the second half to run their record to 4-1. Nebraska dropped to 3-1. "We've never beat a big one, so this is probably the biggest win for FSU," Bowden said. Bill Capece led the Seminoles' scoring with a 32-yard field goal in the second quarter and field goals of 27, 40 and 41 yards in the second half. Sam Platt, who was Florida State's leading rusher with 48 yards in 20 carries, scored on a 6-yard run in the fourth quarter for the Seminoles' only touchdown of the game. Among the Nebraska mistakes Osborne cited was a holding penalty during the final drive when it looked as if the 'Huskers might pull out a victory in the closing seconds of the game. "That holding call was critical," Osborne said. "If we hadn't had that penalty, we might have been in the end zone." Despite the penalty, the 'Huskers drove to the Florida State 3-yard line with 21 seconds left, but Gary Futch OU belts 'Buffs, 82-42 BOULDER, Colo.
