Ktraskejrs EmuranlMate Hawk 5741 Statistics lawa Nev By BUCK TURNBULL LINCOLN, NEB. CerUinly the most accurate and prophetic comment Hayden Fry made last week was that his Iowa football team would find a significant difference between the Big Red of Indiana and the Big Red of Nebraska. . And how! For Fry's Hawkeyes it must have seemed as if they had entered another world. Nebraska simply tore them to shreds here Saturday in a 57-0 shocker that was Iowa's worst football defeat in 30 years. DES MOINES SUNDAY REGISTER B SEPTEMBER 21, i 4 f.

Bulldogs roar past Lamar, 38-7 By a SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT , BEAUMONT, TEXAS - Not having won a night game in 20 straight attempts, Drake rolled into town and shot the lights out on Lamar, 38-7, in a non-conference football game. If the truth is known, the Lamar band wound up giving the Bulldogs more problems than the Cardinal defense. The hometown musicians had to be quieted in the third quarter so the Bulldogs could call their plays. But that was all that slowed up the Bulldogs, who racked up 461 total yards, while holding Lamar's ground game to just 50 yards. It was the Bulldogs' first victory under the lights since a 23-7 triumph over Memphis State in 1972. "I have to say this team was as ready to play football tonight as any team I have ever coached," said a jubilant Chuck Shelton, whose team is 2-1. "The difference, was our ability to keep the ball for long stretches, and our defensive linemen and linebackers were just super." The Cardinals of the Southland Conference did, however, manage 237 yards in the air. . '1 don't think we can play much better than we did tonight," Shelton added. "I hope our defense continues to play like this (20 points surrendered in three games). They did a helluva job picking up Lamar's tendencies tonight" The Bulldog defense's streak of nine straight scoreless quarters come to an end when Lamar cut the margin - DRAKE Please turn to Page 9D You must go back to the 1950 season to find a wider losing margin in Hawkeye . annals, an 83-21 trouncing by Ohio State. But what made this such a stunner ., for Nebraska's 107th consecutive sellout crowd of 76,029 was that many came to Memorial Stadium thinking Iowa had a decent chance to win. . The Hawks had given Nebraska all it wanted in Iowa City last year before finally succumbing, 24-21, and they bad opened this season with a promising and fairly convincing 16-7 victory at Indiana. Mm.

"I wasn't exactly sure if it was good because Tim Koegel (the holder) jumped on me as the ball got close to the posts, then I got buried," said the junior from Cincinnati whose left foot delivered the blow, that knocked the Wolverines from the ranks of the undefeated and kept the Irish there at 2-0. Butch Woolfolk bad come bouncing Drake star Lloyd has broken ankle Lewis Lloyd How bad is injury? "We just got blown out of the tub," said a crestfallen Fry. "We played extremely poor football. We coached poorly and it was obvious that we prepared poorly. . "The odd thing is that, personally, I thought this would be a good ballgame, I really did." It didn't take sixth-ranked Nebraska long to set the tone of the game, sending Jarvis Redwine 69 yards to a touchdown through a gaping hole over right guard on the third play from scrimmage.

That made it 27-26, in favor of Michigan, and a two-point conversion try failed. Freshman quarterback-punter Blair Kiel, owner of a stronger arm than the regular Irish quarterback, Mike Courey, came in for a passing blitz and the ball quickly moved to midfield when Wolverine Marion Body was called for pass interference. Operating mostly from the shotgun, the rookie who had just thrown his first collegiate pass soon found Phil Carter for a nine-yard advance, then got a first down on the Michigan 34 with a short sideline toss to Tony Hunter that got the clock stopped By RON MALY Drake basketball star Lewis Lloyd, who led the nation in rebounding and was No. 2 in scoring last season as a junior, suffered a broken right ankle in a pickup game late Friday and is in Mercy Hospital. "Doctors told me they would wait 36 to 48 hours, until the swelling in the ankle goes down, before making a decision on what to do," Coach Bob Ortegel said Saturday. Ortegal said be did not know yet if the injury means Lloyd will miss the 1980-81 season. Practice doesn't officially start for colleges until Oct 15 carries, an average of almost 13 per try. That was even more impressive than he'd been the week before when he averaged a little better than 10 yards in a 55 9 rout of Utah, collecting 179 yards in 17 attempts for the national rushing lead. Nebraska used everybody but the water boy, including 16 ball carriers, and Redwine was the only one who had a better day than Iowan Roger Craig, the former all-stater from Central Davenport. Craig also lugged the ball 12 times, picked up 78 yards and scored twice. i mm Kuril Jr"v . , . i . . s f i?" - .Wife-. ' . 53 ii uH 'uIidsGj with :04 remaining. You know the rest. And if you think there was pandemonium on the field, you should have witnessed the scene in the Notre Dame dressing room in which Oliver was handed the game ball, Father Theodore Hesburgh, president of the school, proclaimed this one of the victories for the ages and Coach Dan Devine said, "Our Lady gave us special blessing today. I don't care how late you stay out tonight." It was the second time in two years that Notre Dame had kicked Michigan into submission and, if you can believe it, the first time in five tries that Notre Dame has won at home in this series, which Michigan still leads, 10-4. But you may believe that none in the sellout throng here on a muggy, Lloyd, a strong, 6-foot 6-inch, 215-pounder from Philadelphia who can play either forward or center, is regarded as "The Franchise" at Drake. He averaged 15 rebounds per game last year and had a 30.2 scoring average. Needless to say, it would be a serious setback to Ortegel and bis team if the injury should cause Lloyd to miss all, or even some, of the games. "I haven't even thought yet about whether Lewis might have to sit out the full year," said Ortegel. "I can't think about that until the doctors tell me how severe the injury is." From his hospital room Saturday, Almost every statistic was just as humiliating for Iowa as the final score. The talented Huskers limited Iowa to seven first downs while picking up 33 of their own, and they rushed for 456 yards to only 44 for the Hawks. "If you've ever been shot at and hit, you know how I feel, so don't ask any funny questions," was the way Fry started his postgame press conference.

Trying to keep up with the action in his crazy battle was almost more than mortal mind could endure and sorting out the entire game may take until a week from Tuesday. Where to start? The Irish, with Sioux City's Courey looking mighty sharp, scored twice early in the second period on a six-yard run by busy Phil Carter and a 10-yard pass from Courey to Pete Holohan and seemed to have matters well in hand at 14-0 a few minutes before the first half ended. Hah! And you may follow that with at least one more Hah! Michigan Coach Bo Schembechler replaced NOTRE DAME Please turn to Page 6D Lloyd said he was "feeling all right" considering the circumstances. "I was in a pickup game," Lloyd said, "and Tony Watson (another Drake player) stepped on my foot. I turned one way and my foot went the other way." Ortegel said Lloyd was in good physical condition when he came back to school this fall. "He'd played basketball all summer in Philadelphia," Ortegel commented. Lloyd came to Drake prior to his junior year after spending two seasons at New Mexico Military Institute, where he led the nation's junior colleges in scoring. if First downs Rushes-yards Passing yards Raturn yards Passas Punts Fumbtea-lost Panaitias-yards lawa Nebraska 7 13 30-44 n-4$t 119 101 0 71 13-23-1 f --! 7-39 2-42 3-2 2-M 4-39 5-5 , scomMo el - M 21 t IS - St Nab Redwine 49 run (Nan kick) Nato T Brown IS pass from Oulnfl (Natl kick) Nab McCreov 4 pass from Qulnn (Salt kick) Nab Cral S run (Saibal kick) Nab T.Brown 13 pass from Quint (Sttbat klctO.r Nab Craia 2 run I Saibal kick) Nab Mauar 5 run (Sctoentng kick) V Nab Safety Gatas tackled in and zona dv, t Lonowskl Nae Matnlson 11 run (kick faitad) r A 74,029 SECTION D Copyright 10 Das Mamas Register and Trtbuna Company ISU saddles visitors with 27-6 defeat Spartans toss up 55 passes complete 16 Statistics SanJese i$U 17 21 M-75 44-299 167 I34 13 B4 14-55-J I2-2S-0 , 1-42 9-34 2-2 3-1 5-23 9-97 First downs Rushes-yarns Passing yards Return yards Passes Punts Fumbles-losl Penaiiies-vards San Jasa State SCORING 1 3 3 3 0-4 lawa State 14 - ISU Carlson 25 intarceolion raturn (Giftords kick) SJ FO Bero 50 , .

Consider it a crime if. the guys who play on the offensive unit for Iowa State's football team, don't buy dinner for the defense sometime this weekend. Middle linebacker Mark Carlson tackle Cal Jacobs, end James' Ransom and a whole slug of other' Cyclone defenders deserve T-bone' steaks with all the trimmings from' their teammates after shutting the) lights out on San Jose State, 27-6; before 47,806 fans here Saturday. Indeed, the 214-pound Carlson and the 250-pound Jacobs players who' are accustomed to digging in and, stopping somebody else's offense on! most Saturdays during the season accounted for Iowa State's first two touchdowns in this game that saw the-fiercest hitting this side of a mugging carried out by the Pittsburgh' Steelers. "Our defense won this one," Coach Donnie Duncan said after the. Cyclones raised their record to 2-0., "The defense gave us the big plays, the momentum and the points. " "We were vicious, but clean. We made San Jose State pay for everything it got. r "We played about as well as a defense could play under the circunv, stances, and I credit Larry Coyer (the defensive coordinator) and the other defensive coaches for the work they, did. .; "The game ball goes to Coyer, whose wife gave birth to a son early this morning. Larry, in fact, got nd sleep at all Friday night." ' Looking Ahead Thirty-nine seconds before the game ended, some of the fans were already chanting, "Beat the Hawks.'.' When the happy Cyclone players wert heading for the locker room, they were greeted by fans who pounded them on the shoulders and hollered, "Beat Iowa!" Already, of course, the folks were looking forward to next Saturday's Iowa State-Iowa game in Iowa City1, Iowa State couldn't even enjoy this one very long. The fans were ready for Iowa, whether the players were or not. And Duncan? Well, he might have preferred waiting at least until this morning before worrying about Iowa, but be didn't get that luxury, either. Immediately after the game, he was hit with questions about the confrontation in Iowa City, as a guy wondered what kind of effect Nebraska's 57-0 crushing of Iowa might have on the Hawks Saturday. "Well, Iowa is a very good football team," Duncan said. "I know because' we've already exchanged films with them from the first week. I've seeri them against a good Indiana team (Iowa won, 16-7) and I won't be lulled to sleep." J Let's face it, Duncan was a pretty IOWA STATB Pieose turn to Pace 4D 8P8BT& stow ii
