Huskers back on track By RICK GOSSELIN UPI Sports Writer The status quo has returned at Nebraska. The Cornhuskers, who fell to No. 3 Penn State, 27-24, on a touchdown In the closing seconds a week ago, did not suffer from any letdown Saturday in returning to their winning ways with a 41-7 rout on the road against No. 17 and previously-unbeaten Auburn. Nebraska rushed for 342 yards with four different runners scoring touchdowns and quarterback Turner Gill also threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Todd Brown as the ninth-rated Corn- huskers improved their record to 3-1. "I don't know how good or bad we are," Auburn Coach Pat Dye said, "but Nebraska is the finest football team I've seen." Mike Rozier rushed for 88 yards and scored touchdowns on runs of 2 and 12 yards. The Cornhuskers also got scoring runs of 15 yards from Doug Wilkening, 41 yards from Mark Schellen and 13 from Tim Brungardt. Gill rushed for 50 yards and completed 10-of-19 passes for 162 yards.

"I'm really pleased and surprised to wirt like we did," Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne said. "They had the capability to play us even and the score should have been a lot closer. We just wore them down." In games Saturday, Oklahoma downed Iowa State, 13-3, Missouri defeated East Carolina, 28-9, Kansas State fell to Arizona State, 30-7, Tulsa upset Kansas, 20-15, and No. 9 UCLA blasted Colorado, 34-6. Stanley Wilson rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown out of the I-formation to help Oklahoma even its record at 22. The Sooners scrapped their traditional wishbone attack in favor of the I- formation and used it to roll up 280 yards on the ground against the Cyclones. "I loved the I-formatton," Wilson said. "The coaches suggested it to get the ball to our running backs without having to use option plays. It worked real well." Freshman running backs Santio Barbosa and Eric Drain rushed for 157 yards and three touchdowns to improve Missouri's record to 3-1, with all three wins coming at home. Barbosa rushed for 91 yards and Drain 66 yards with Barbosa scoring on a 1-yard run and Drain on runs of 2 and 59. Tom Ramsey completed 16-of-24 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown to keep UCLA unbeaten through four games. Ramsey hit Dosie Williams with a 50-yard touchdown pass and also ran 10 yards for another score to drop Colorado to 1-3. Colorado contributed to its own demise with four turnovers. "I thought early in the game we were our own worst enemy," Colorado Coach Bill McCartney said. "I felt like if we could have sustained some drives in the first half we could have beaten them. There's no question in my mind we could have beaten them. We stopped ourselves; they didn't stop us. That's the frustrating part. We're a mistake offense and we haven't been able to correct that." Th» Sollna Journal Monday, October 4, 1962 Pag» It Friends stays in KCA C grid race Sun Devils too tough By United Prats International Sophomore Monte Watson, a reserve last year, took advantage of his starting position Saturday to keep Friends in the thick of the chase after the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference title. Watson bolted 135 yards on 37 carries, including touchdown runs of 3, 2 and 2 yards as Friends, picked to finish 4th this year, defeated Ottawa, 29-26, to grab a share of first place with Southwestern and Sterling. All have 34 records. In other league games, Bethany edged Bethel, 21-14, Kansas Wesleyan whipped St. Mary of the Plains, 394, Southwestern edged Tabor, 35-24, and Sterling nipped McPherson, 15-7. Friends was dealt a severe blow last weekend when starting running back Jerome Orange was Injured and lost indefinitely. But Watson, a former Canton-Galva High School star, picked up the slack, scoring the winning touchdown with 4:09 left in the game on a 2- yard plunge. "I knew he was a good back, but I didn't know how good, " said Friends coach Dale Listen. "All he needed was some confidence. He knew the load was on his shoulders. And he really came through." Friends' ability to stay in first place comes despite losing four defensive starters because of various injuries. KCAC Standings Team Friends Sterling Southwestern Bethany Ottawa Bethel Kan.

Calvin •scored three touchdowns In his team's win and Bates passed for 307 yards (13-of-24 completions) in Bethany's victory. • But Bethany coach Ted Kessinger was most pleased with receiver Allen McNeil, who hauled in an 85-yard touchdown pass. "He's a legitimate pro prospect," Kessinger said of McNeil, a 6-1, 180- pounder from Wichita. "He's the beat pass catcher we've ever had here." Kessinger is a good judge of football talent. He once tutored quarterback Ken Anderson, now of the Cincinnati Bengals. TEMPE, Ariz. (UPI) — One play — well after the matter already was decided — put a damper on undefeated Arizona State's 30-7 victory over Kansas State Saturday night. The play came with just over one minute left in the game and the highly- touted Arizona State defense within reach of its second straight shutout. Reserve quarterback Tom Onofrio, on his first play of the game, threw a sideline pass that was picked off by Kansas State defensive end Vic Koenning and returned 43 yards for a touchdown to ruin the shutout. To ASU coach Darryl Rogers, that play was "just ridiculous." "That last Kansas State score put a lackluster touch to a fine performance," he added. While the Devil defense was not to blame for the score, Koenning's TD kept ASU from improving its national Scorebard on Page 14 scoring defense lead that stood at 5.7 points allowed per game. While Rogers was unhappy with that pass play, Kansas State coach Jim Dickey couldn't find much fault with the Sun Devils, now 5-0. "They are as good a defensive team as I ever want to see," he said. "They were a lot more ballclub than we could handle. "To be honest, they're an even better defense than we thought after we saw them on film." The Devil defense was so dominating that Kansas State, which suffered its first loss in four games, was held to 152 total yards, including just 47 yards on 43 rushing attempts and only 53 total yards in the second half. ASU seems to come up with a new defensive hero every game and this time it was end Bryan Caldwell, who recovered a fumble to set up the game's first touchdown and then returned an intercepted pass 20 yards for a touchdown. The interception was caused when safety Paul Moyer blitzed Kansas State Brett is not 'untouchable' KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) — What once was unthinkable, the Kansas City Royals trading George Brett, is now a possibility, although not a probability. The Royals, however, would be willing to listen to offers concerning Brett during the off-season. "I'm not going to use that word, 'untouchable,'" Royals general manager John Schuerholz told the Topeka Capital-Journal. "It's very highly unlikely we'll trade George." It would take a blockbluster trade, but Brett could be switching uniforms. "The trade talk doesn't surprise me," Brett said. "The Cincinnati Reds traded George Foster to the New York Mets. The Los Angeles Dodgers are not trying to sign Steve Garvey. This is a business. If I ask myself if I'm an owner, 'Would I do that, would I trade somebody and get somebody to do the same job for less-money?' sure I would." Brett, who turns 30 next May, is making about $1 million a year and is signed through 1986. Royals owner Ewing Kauffman says the club lost money in 1982 despite drawing 2.3 million fans. There is speculation Brett will be traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for first baseman Keith Hernandez and third baseman Ken OberkfeU. Schuerholz denies those rumors. "It sounds like something somebody started in a bar." Schuerholz said.

The pass only traveled a few feet in the air and bounced off ASU linebacker Jimmy Williams before Caldwell gathered it in. ASU's offense once again had trouble getting in gear with the bulk of the points either scored or set up by the defense. Rogers blamed the breakdown in the Sun Devil passing attack on the receivers. "Some of our receivers were wandering around like lost souls," Rogers said. "Their routes just aren't very crisp. That just infuriates me." ASU quarterback Todd Hons completed 14-of-32 passes for 153 yards and one touchdown. He also suffered two interceptions. Besides suffering the bad beating on the Scoreboard, Kansas State also suffered a physical whipping as both Dickey, the Kansas State quarterback, and tailback Mark Hundley, the Wild- cats' leading rusher, both went out with injuries. The game was scoreless until the final 6:23 of the first half when ASU suddenly erupted on field goals of 41 and 47 yards by Luis Zendejas and a 34- yard TD pass from Hons to Brown after Caldwell pounced on Dickey's fumble on the Kansas State 29-yard line. Zendejas now has kicked at least one field goal in 15 straight games, tying a Pacific 10 Conference record. Caldwell moved the Devils ahead 200 midway in the third period with his interception and Zendejas added a 37- yard field goal in the fourth quarter. After Williams recovered another KSU fumble on the Wildcat 40-yard line, freshman Darryl Clack chewed up 34 yards on three carries, scoring a TD on a 15-yard run. Clack was the brightest spot on the Sun Devil offense, gaining 78 yards on 11 carries, all in the second half. Freshman tailback Carlos Adams was Kansas State's leading rusher with 39 yards on 10 carries.

Talks between the NFLPA and the Management Council broke off in Washington Saturday with no further negotiating date agreed upon and both sides expressing outrage at the lack of progress toward settlement of the 13- day-old players' strike that has already caused 28 games to be scrubbed. In Washington, the union announced Redskins' quarterback Joe Theismann will lead the National Conference East in an All-Star season opener against the American Conference East at RFK Stadium. The union said next Sunday's game will be nationally televised to more than 22 million homes by Ted Turner's cable SuperStation, WTBS Atlanta. Brig Owens, of the NFLPA, said the teams will play a 19-game round robin series culminating with playoffs in Honolulu on Dec. 19. Theismann and St. Louis Cardinal quarterback Neil Lomax are scheduled to team up against the American East quarterbacks Richard Todd of the New York Jets and New England Patriot Steve Grogan. Striking NFL players were given ballots last week to choose players for the league, said union executive director Ed Garvey. The NFL has taken legal action-to stop the players from participating in the All-Star league, filing suit last Wednesday in Buffalo against Turner; Jack Etonian, executive director of the Management Council, has're- quested the presence of a mediator since the walkout began Sept. 21," ' Person top fisherman. ; Frank Person of Salina took first place in a striper bass fishing contest held Friday and Saturday at Wilson Lake. Person won the contest by reeling in an 8-pound, 7-ounce striper. Second place honors went to Rblaild Stewart of Claflin with a 7-pound, ft- ounce fish, followed by Bill Dirreen of Olmite, 7-pounds, 3-ounces; John Perterson, Jr., Wichita, 7-pounds, 1-ounce; and Dick Dunn, Great Bend, 6-pounds, 14-ounces.
