McEachern flipped a four-yard scoring pass to the swift Lam Jones with 6 minutes 15 seconds to play, then safety Johnnie Johnson short-circuited an Arkansas comeback attempt Johnson intercepted a pass with 4:16 left and batted away a desperation fourth-down pass in the Longhorn end zone with 2:05 to go to preserve the victory before 78,000 fans in Memorial Stadium. Texas is 5-1 overall and 3-0 in the conference. The Razorbacks, who had an 11 -game victory streak snapped in losing their seventh straight to Texas, dropped to 4-1 and 1-1. Texas unveiled a third-string TEXAS Pleose turn to Page Ten uskers buffalo Colorado By RON MALY Sunday Resistor Staff WrIMr BOULDER, COLO. - Perhaps you recall an essay on the Sports Opinion page of The Sunday Register a while back. In it, a guy suggested that sportswriters should maybe treat football games the same way Joan Bunke of our newspaper writes about movies and Josef Mossman tells about restaurants. In other words, write a reineu; of the drama if, indeed, there is any drama on the artificial turf stage. Well, no better time to start than now. After all, there certainly was no big news, and no drama, generated Saturday on Colorado's Folsom Field. Grantland Rice might have walked out after three quarters. As it was, Colorado Coach Bill Mallory probably felt like doing the same thing. Nebraska walloped Mallory s Buffaloes, 52-14, before 53,262 spectators. Except for Howard Ballage's snazzy 100-yard kickoff return in the first quarter, it was a bad show by the home team. No wonder so many folks in these parts have started following the team up the road the Denver Broncos instead of the Buffs.

Drowning is no fun. A Nebraska victory over Colorado, of course, is no big deal. It happens all the time. This was the Cornhusk-ers' 11th straight in the series and 16th in the past 17 games. If there was some way Colorado could drop the Huskers from the schedule, they would. The trouble is, Big Eight Conference rules call for a game each season. Nebraska started the day with a 5-1 record and the nation's No. 5 ranking. On the basis of this game to say nothing of its 36-26, 56-10, 69-17, !3-0 and 48-14 victories in the five preceding weeks Coach Tom Osborne's team deserves to be rated higher. Even though I.M. Hipp couldn't hang onto the ball, Nebraska amassed 641 yards in total offense (472 rushing) and turned the game into a shambles after a 14-14 first half. It got so dark in the fourth quarter that some of Colorado's faithful were perhaps hoping the game would be called. No such luck. Unless they made an early exit and many did they had to put up with the happenings until the bitter end. Colorado .also came into the game with a 5-1 record. But that was misleading. The Buffs played a marsh-mallow early-season schedule going against such round-heeled foes as Oregon, Miami (Fla.), San Jose State and Northwestern. The opening five games were at home. The first time Colorado went on the road, it lost. It happened at, of all places, Oklahoma State. That gives you some idea of Colorado's strength. Saturday's mauling gives you even more of an idea.
