4D DES MOINES SUNDAY REGISTER B OCTOBER 10, 1982 Photos by DAVE PETERSON Gifford's kick near record Continued from Page One missed handoff to the fullback, then a pitch." Duncan, whose team will take a 3-2 record into a Big Eight Conference game next Saturday at Missouri, said his reserves "run millions of miles of routes in practice, and it would be ridiculous to not allow them to do in a game what they practice." Chlebek was upset because Steve Griffin, one of his reserve tackles, was injured on the play. Last in Series This was the final game of the Iowa Slate-Kent State series, and it's probably just as well - especially since Chlebek went out of his way to downgrade the Cyclones' performance by saying, "I wasn't impressed at all with Iowa State. Harold Brown is a very good runner, but Iowa State wasn't impressive. I can see why they got only three points against Oklahoma." Not only did Iowa State's offense crunch its foe from the Mid-American Conference with 544 yards of total offense - 389 on the ground, 155 on passes - but the defense performed brilliantly, holding Kent State to minus seven yards on the ground. The Golden Flashes came out dressed in uniforms that made them look like the San Diego Chargers. However, any similarity between them and the National Football League team ended there. Brown ran for touchdowns of two, one and four yards as Iowa State erected a 24-7 half time lead. The only Kent State touchdown came on Walter Kroan's 58-yard pass to Todd Feldman, who grabbed the ball away from Cyclone Ronnie Osborne and went the rest of the distance for his team's first score since Sept. 25. "I never gained this many yards in high school or junior college," said Brown, the 202-pound Iowa State running back who grew up in Kent, Runners shine as Sooners top Texas, 28-22 Statistics Texas 23 43-163 235 9 1B-34-I 5-40 1-1 4-29 Ok la. 16 61-384 25 0 1-2-1 3- 37 2-2 4- 30 First downs Rushes-yards Passing vards Return vards Passes Punts Fumb!es-!ost Penallies-vards Texas SCORING 10 0 12 -7 7 7 - Oklahoma 7 O DuPree 63 run (Keeling kick) T Walls 6 pass from Brewer (Allegre kick) O Wilson 3 run (Keeling kick) T FG Allegre 32 O Ledbetter 59 run (Keeling kick) T Walker 3 run (kick tailed) O Ledbel'er 15 run (Keeling kick) T Walls 27 pass from Brewer (pass failed) A - 75.587 DALLAS, TEXAS (AP) -Freshman Marcus DuPree's 63-yard touchdown run and senior Weldon Ledbetter's 59- and 15-yard scoring dashes ignited the Oklahoma Sooners to a 28-22 upset of the 13th-ranked and previously unbeaten Texas Longhorns Saturday. "I may have had better teams but I don't think I've ever had a finer victory," Oklahoma Coach Barry Switzer said. "I've never had a team play this hard against a good, tough opponent." Texas Ccach Fred Akers said, "We fought a good fight. It was a heckuva game." The Sooners (3-2) shocked the favored Longhorns before a sellout crowd of 75,000 early on a trick play featuring DuPree, the 210-pound, 6-foot 3-inch freshman from Philadelphia, Miss. DuPree faked a reverse, broke a tackle, and used his 4.5 speed to outrun the Texas secondary for the Sooners' first score. Ledbetter's third-quarter 59-yard scoring run was his longest as a Sooner, and he scored again on 15-yarder in the fourth period for a 28-16 lead before the Longhorns rallied for a final score. Texas quarterback Robert Brewer connected with Herkie Walls on a 27-yard touchdown pass in the fourth period, but that was it for the Longhorns. Prior to Ledbetter's touchdown run, John Walker's three- yard touchdown run brought Texas to within five at 21-16. The Longhorns (3-1) had tied it 7-7 on a six-yard touchdown pass from Brewer to Walls, but the Sooners took the lead aeain on Stanley Wilson's three-yard touchdown run. A 32-yard field goal by Texas Raul Allegre cut the Sooners' lead to 14-10 at halftime. Scott Case intercepted a third-peri od Brewer pass in Oklahoma territory and Ledbetter struck for a 21-10 Sooner advantage. He broke over left guard and bolted untouched into the end zone. Texas closed the gap, driving 65 yards in 12 plays with Walker scoring from the three. But Oklahoma rolled 80 yards in six plays for the game-winner. Fred Sims charged 51 yards to the Texas 22, and three plays later Ledbetter scored his second touchdown. The Sooner victory snapped a three-game losing streak in the 77th renewal of this series, which the Longhorns now lead, 46-28-3. Texas had its chance to come from behind and beat the Sooners when DuPree fumbled, and Texas' Richard Peayy at the Longhorn 43 with four minutes to play. However, the Oklahoma defense forced Texas to punt, and the Longhorns didn't get their hands on the Dan again.

Brown needed just 30 yards to eclipse the Iowa State record of 271 yards set by Dave Hoppmann against Kansas State in 1961, and probably would have been a cinch to be No. 1 in the record book had Duncan used him more in the fourth quarter. 'No Difference "It doesn't make any difference to me," said Brown. "I didn't come here to set records. But I am happy to accomplish what T did today." An indication that Duncan wasn't trying to pile up a big score on a team that was clearly outmanned came when he said, "We didn't consider leaving Brown in" even though the hard-running back was within striking distance of Hoppmann's record. The only game Brown has started was the Sept. 11 opener at Tennessee. But he was on the No. 1 unit in that one only because of a mix-up on Iowa Huskers corral pesky Buffs, 40-14 BOULDER, COLO. (AP) - I-back Mike Rozier ran for 212 yards and scored two crucial fourth-quarter touchdowns as seventh-ranked Nebraska held off pesky Colorado,. 40-14, Saturday in Big Eight Conference football. Colorado, trailing, 20-0, rallied for two touchdowns in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 20-14. Randy Essington flipped a 37-yard pass to running back Richard Johnson for the first score, and Johnson ran 24 yards for the other. But Nebraska scored two touch downs 17 seconds apart in the final period to clinch its fourth victory in five outings.

On Colorado's next play from scrimmage, hssington s pass was tipped by linebacker Mike Knox and intercepted by Steve Damkroger, who returned 25 yards to the Colorado 11 -yard line. Rozier scored on the ensuing play, ripping 11 yards off the right side. That gave the Huskers a comfortable 33-14 lead with 8:09 remaining. Another Damkroger interception set up sophomore Jeff Smith's 1-yard scoring run with 4:43 left. Colorado, which fell to 1-4 overall, drove to the Nebraska 4-yard line in the closing seconds but failed to score. Colorado's game plan was to pass and Essington set school records for completions, attempts and passing yardage, hitting on 24 of 51 for 361 yards. Nebraska established its running game on its first possession a 14-play, 68-yard drive entirely on the ground. Rozier carried 11 times for 53 yards on the drive, and fullback Doug Wilkening scored on a 3-yard run with 6:05 left in the opening period. Early in the second quarter, the Huskers put together an 80-yard scoring march with only one pass. Gill's 20-yard run highlighted the series, and Roger Craig went the final yard with 8:48 left in the half. Gill ran 19 yards and Rozier 16 as the Huskers moved inside the Colorado 10-yard line and Kevin Seibel capped the drive with 51 seconds remaining on a 26-yard field goal. Seconds later Essington dropped back to pass but was blind-sided by Nebraska defensive end Bill Weber and the ball popped loose with the Huskers recovering on the Colorado 13. State's first possession. Tommy Davis was supposed to start, but Brown was in for the first play that night. "I'm glad we have both players," Duncan said Saturday, "but I'd say Brown took a giant step toward becoming a starter today." Duncan turned interviewer after the game and said he had a question for Brown: "Harold, you're not gonna come back six months from now and say I ran you too much, are you?" That was in reference to Dwayne Crutchfield, who ran for 1,189 yards as a senior last season, then afterward indicated that he was upset Duncan used him so often. Loop's 15th-Best Brown's total against Kent State gave him the 15th-best rushing record in Big Eight history. He smashed into the Kent State line 37 times 10 more than the entire Golden Flashes team totaled on the ground. Defensive end Lester Williams scored an Iowa State touchdown on a fumble recovery in the end zone with 3 minutes, 35 seconds left in the third quarter. That came after Dave Archer's pass intended for Frankie Leaks was intercepted by Derrick Samuels on the Kent State two-yard line. Dwayne Gilyard caused freshman Dana Wright's fumble, and Williams fell on the ball. Alex Giffords kicked the extra point that pushed Iowa State's lead to 34-7. Giffords booted field goals of 55, 25 and 21 yards. The 55-yarder came close to the school-record 58-yarder he had three years ago at Oklahoma. Tommy Davis, Iowa State's starting tailback, gained only 13 yards in 10 attempts. He fumbled on third-and-one at the Kent State four on the Cyclones' first series, and Duncan said afterward Tommy "displeased us" with that error. Archer completed eight of 16 passes for 116 yards. Jon English hit on three of eight for 39.

KAN. (AP) -Kansas State's Mike Wallace made a juggling fourth-quarter catch of a fourth-and-32 Doug Bogue pass in the end zone Saturday as the Wildcats fought Missouri to a 7-7 tie in a Big Eight football game. Missouri's Brad Burditt fell short on a 52-yard field goal attempt as time ran out. The deadlock left the two rivals at 3-1-1 for the year. It was the first tie for both teams since 1966, when Missouri fought Iowa State to a 10-10 deadlock and Kansas State struggled to a 3-3 standoff with Kansas. Missouri grabbed a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on a two-yard touchdown plunge by Tracey Mack. Kansas State, outplayed statistically most of the day, stayed alive with an intense defensive effort.

After Anderson broke open the scoring with a 58-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, Cowboy quarter back Ike Jackson launched the Oklahoma State passing game with a pair of touchdown strikes that gave the Cowboys a 24-10 halftime lead, Anderson's yardage in 36 carries broke the single-game rushing record for Oklahoma State (1-2-1) and was the best ever against Kansas by any player. i h lli " - 1 , &c , 21" "h "Vv t.Vt; " v;w -avF , .4 :V $j?vfv5r; 'JiiMiy , 7 -v7 -7 !-v'vr''v: : , - -V 7-7,;7;"C7 Sk:k ' rUr: X-V7 7 7:7 v: s 7577:7;-.f!' uHS V777"! 7 7 mm I SV defender Ronnie Osborne is thinking interception 5 P-V:.-v i-nv. 4-37 ; . ;t .ru ZS rV t : m'Uhvtr' L...-i-i -iriiiiMiV-iiirtoJili,iW-iiiih-t-ftt'VihiiHiiTfr' iff-"' ' ' 11 ' '' -" ' " ''"-"m.4 j ...but the ball bounces off his shoulder ...
