Next game: Nov. 9 Northwestern 25 Huskers deal Oklahoma its worst-ever loss OSBORNE Nebraska capitalizes on Sooner turnovers en route to 73-21 rout By The Associated Press NORMAN, Okla. — Nebraska handed Oklahoma its worst loss ever Saturday. There's no telling how bad it would have gotten if the Cornhuskers' offense was rolling. No. 5 Nebraska, after being held scoreless for a quarter and a half, went on to win 73-21 and beat Oklahoma for the sixth year in a row. Nebraska totaled 387 yards, well below its 441-yard average. Its 208 yards on the ground were nearly 100 below average. "I guess when you win 70-something to 21 and you say, 'Well the key to the game was the defense,' it doesn't make a lot of sense," Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said. "But obviously we played very well defensively through most of the game." The Cornhuskers (7-1,5-0 Big 12) limited Oklahoma to 89 yards through the first three quarters, 275 overall. They also intercepted four passes, one of which was returned 83 yards for a touchdown by freshman cornerback Ralph Brown. The 52-point margin surpassed the Sooners' 47-point loss to Oklahoma A&M in 1945, and the 73 points were the most ever against Oklahoma. Kansas State held the previous mark, 59 in 1969. "We struggled offensively all day. We got nothing done," coach John Blake said. "Their defense beat us up. We thought our defense could play with them if we got some help from our offense, but we didn't." Justin Fuente was sacked on Oklahoma's first play, and things got no better for Oklahoma (2-6, 23). Fuente was replaced by Eric Moore, then returned again later and threw interceptions on two straight possessions. Oklahoma scored all its points in the fourth quarter, on runs of 34, 17 and 51 yards by De'Mond Parker. Before that, Nebraska had gone 27 straight quarters without allowing a rushing touchdown. "We just couldn't get our running game going," said halfback James Allen, who had 32 yards on 15 carries. "We really didn't have time to throw. Eric and Justin were running for their lives back there. It's hard to make plays in that situation." After being held scoreless in the first quarter, Nebraska scored 17 in the second, 28 in the third and 28 in the fourth. Scott Frost threw third-quarter TD passes of 41 yards to Lance Brown and 10 yards to Jon Vedral, then added a 51-yarder to Jeff Lake early in the fourth to make it 52-0. Oklahoma kept Nebraska out of the end zone and held the Corn- huskers to 7 yards in the first quarter, but the Sooners' offense was shut down as well and never V STATE COLLEGE BIG 12 Standings North Division Conference All Games Colorado Nebraska Kansas State Kansas Missouri Iowa State W 5 5 4 2 1 1 W 7 7 7 4 3 2 South Division Conference All Games Texas Tech Texas Texas A&M Oklahoma Baylor Oklahoma State W 4 3 2 2 1 1 W 5 4 4 2 4 4 Saturday's games Nebraska 73, Oklahoma 21; Kansas 34, Iowa State 31; Colorado 41, Missouri 13 Texas A&M 38, Oklahoma State 19; Texas 28, Baylor 23. did get going against Nebraska's starters. Nebraska took advantage of Oklahoma mistakes to score 17 second-quarter points and remove any doubt about the outcome. Texas A&M 38, Oklahoma St. 19 STILLWATER, Okla. — With one 42-yard interception return, Texas A&M's Keith Mitchell turned the momentum of the game and set the stage for the Aggies' domination of Oklahoma State in the second half of Saturday's Big 12 victory. The Aggies (4-5, 2-3 Big 12) scored 28 points in the second half, including three touchdowns by running back D'Andre Hardeman, who finished with 109 yards on 18 carries. • "It didn't take the wind out of our sails," Oklahoma State coach Bob Simmons said of the interception. "But it gave them some momentum and it took some confidence away from our offense." Mitchell, a linebacker, picked off Tone' Jones' pass early in the third quarter, immediately after the Cowboys had forced the Ag- gies to punt on their first possession of the second half. "I saw the line drop off and I sat back and waited for the ball," Mitchell said. The 42-yard scoring return gave the Aggies a 17-13 lead. "At that point we were still in the ball game," Simmons said. But Jones threw another interception and the Cowboys lost a fumble later in the half. After leading 13-10 at halftime, the Cowboys (4-5, 1-5) scored only once in the second half, on fullback Brian Aikin's 35 yard-run late in the third quarter. "You really can't turn the ball over the way we did in the second half and have an opportunity to win the game," Simmons said. Hardeman rushed one yard for his first touchdown later in the third quarter to give the Aggies a 24-13 lead and all the points they would need. Randy McCown, who replaced starting quarterback Branndon Stewart in the third quarter, hit flanker Albert Connell with a 47-yard pass to set up Hardeman's 7-yard touchdown The Associated Press Nebraska defensive tackle Jason Peter (55) throws Oklahoma quarterback Justin Fuente for a first-quarter loss during Saturday's game. run. Oklahoma State pulled within 24-19 on Aikins' touchdown late in the third quarter. Jones used two passes and a keeper play to move the Cowboys from their own 38- yard line to the Aggies' 35 to set up the score. But the Aggies responded with two Hardeman touchdowns early in the fourth quarter to take a 3819 lead. Oklahoma State's offense struggled for the rest of the game. The Cowboys rushed for only 59 yards in the second half, while Jones passed for 72 yards. Colorado 41, Missouri 13 COLUMBIA, Mo. — The biggest headache was the one Koy Detmer gave Missouri's defense. Detmer, coming back from a concussion sustained last week, passed for a school-record 457 yards and three long touchdowns as No. 7 Colorado beat Missouri for its school-record 10th consecutive road victory Saturday. "It didn't bother me all we'ek," Detmer said. "Other than the initial hit in the game, that was the only headache I had." Detmer was knocked out in the second quarter of a victory over Texas and there was some doubt earlier in the week whether he'd be able to play. He had a shaky start, throwing several balls high, but finished 19-for-33. "Koy Detmer should win the Heisman," Missouri defensive back Shad Criss said. "That boy can throw the ball. We've played some pretty good quarterbacks, but he is tight." Not all of the Missouri players felt that way. "They made good catches on balls that were up for grabs," safety DeMontie Cross said. "And the guy had all day to throw. Even an average quarterback could do that." Detmer played almost the entire game and broke his own passing yardage record of 426 set against Northeast Louisiana in 1995. "Koy is fine," coach Rick Neuheisel said. "He's as goofy as ever." He threw TD passes of 69 and 34 yards to Rae Carruth, and a 34- yarder to Phil Savoy. Two of the touchdowns came when coach Rick Neuheisel elected to go for it on fourth down. "Coach likes to gamble sometimes," Savoy said. "He has confidence in his quarterback, receivers, backs and his line. "We pulled it out, made some great plays and made it happen." Carruth finished with eight catches for 222 yards, tying the school record for receiving yards set in 1981 by Walter Stanley. Colorado's road winning streak is the longest in the nation. The Buffaloes (7-1, 5-0 Big 12) also have 12 consecutive victories over Missouri (3-5, 1-4), outscoring the Tigers 400-132 over that stretch. Texas 28, Baylor 23 AUSTIN, Texas — James Brown threw two touchdown passes to Pat Fitzgerald and Ricky Williams scored twice as Texas raced to a 21-0 lead and then held on over Baylor. The Longhorns (4-4, 3-2 Big 12), who shrugged off a week of adversity surrounding four star players who met with an agent, made it four straight over the Bears (4-4,14), but not without a scare. Texas fans stood in fear that their Longhorns might fall prey to their fourth fourth-quarter collapse this season when Baylor mounted a comeback fueled by two blocked punts and a fumble recovery. The Bears' second blocked punt of the game, by Nikia Codie, led to a 14-yard TD run by Dexter Ford, pulling Baylor within 28-23 with 14:25 left in the game. Baylor took possession at their 20 with 2:37 left and drove to the Texas 36. But Jermaine Alfred's pass on fourth-and-5 was hurried by a Texas blitz and fell incomplete with 56 seconds left. Texas simply ran out the rest of the clock. The Bears' Kyle Atteberry barely missed first-half field goal attempts of 32 and 47 yards that could have changed the outcome of the game. It was a narrow escape for Texas, which had fourth-quarter leads against Notre Dame (7), Oklahoma (11) and Colorado (3) only to lose each game. Siegrist fires Pittsburg State, 43-14 Gorillas quarterback throws for 251 yards, three touchdowns in MIAA victory over Washburn By The Associated Press PITTSBURG — Zach Siegrist passed for 251 yards and three touchdowns as Pittsburg State beat Washburn 43-14 on Saturday in a Mid- America Association game. Pittsburg State (6-2 overall, 6-1 MIAA) scored on the Gorillas' first play from scrimmage on a 38-yard pass from Siegrist to Chris Hudson. Washburn (4-4, 4-3) tied the game 7-7 on a 19- yard pass from Joe Schartz to Willie Sapp. Sapp also scored the Ichabods' other touchdown on a 5-yard run in the second quarter. The 15th-ranked Gorillas led 30-14 at halftime on a field goal by Josh Barcus, a 1-yard run by Siegrist and Siegrist touchdown passes of 25 yards to Jerry Ross and 2 yards to Chuckey Aiken. NW Missouri St. 51, Emporia St. 34 MARYVILLB, Mo. — Greg Teale passed for 272 yards and Jesse Haynes rushed for 216 as Northwest Missouri State beat Emporia State in an MIAA game. Northwest Missouri (9-0 overall, 7-0 MIAA) led 22-19 at halftime on two touchdown passes from Teale to Chris Zeller and a 3-yard run by Haynes. Pete Jelovic passed for 259 yards and Brian Shay rushed for 115 yards and three (IDs for Emporia State (4-5, 4-3). Shay set a team record with 1,608 rushing yards in a season. The Hornets trailed 31-26 after three quarters when Shay scored on a 25-yard run, but the Bearcats then scored on a 62-yard run by Haynes and a 33-yard pass from Teale to Mark Serve. Friends 48, Sterling 7 WICHITA — Felix Ramirez rushed for 165 yards and two touchdowns as Friends overpowered Sterling in a Kansas Conference game. Friends (44 overall, 4-2 KCAC) led 34-0 at halftime as Ramirez scored on a 27-yard run and Ryan Schomaker and Heath Hefley each scored twice. Hefley, who finished with 74 yards rushing, added a 13-yard scoring run and Ramirez ran 53 yards for a TD in the second half. Schonmaker passed for 90 yards and rushed for 78. Sterling (1-7, 1-5) got its only score on a 78- yard pass from John Neill to Jermaine Smith. Bethel 34, Tabor 22 HILLSBORO — Troy Morris passed for 192 yards and two touchdowns as Bethel beat Tabor in a KCAC game. Bethel (6-2 overall, 6-1 KCAC) led 20-0 at halftime on a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown by Ben Benavides, two field goals by Jason Hershey and an 18-yard pass from Morris to Chris Koehn. The Threshers, who had 17 penalties for 123 yards, made it 34-0 in the third quarter on a 1- yard run by Morris and a 4-yard pass from Morris to Koehn. \ Tabor (0-8, 0-6) scored on runs of 44 and 65 yards by Jermaine Rhodes and a 21-yard pass from Michael Hunter to Phillip Goertzen. Rhodes finished with a game-high 149 yards rushing on 13 carries. Baker 28, Benedictine 27 BALDWIN CITY — Ian Page passed for three touchdowns as Baker held off Benedictine in a Heart of America Athletic Conference game. Baker (5-3 overall, 5-2 HAAC) took a 14-0 lead on a pass from Page to Joel Leeman and a 47- yard run by Cedric Colbert. Benedictine (6-2, 5-2) then scored on an 83- yard kickoff return by Shem Johnson. The Ravens added a TD run by Dan Kenney and a scoring pass from Bill Lindquist to Kenney to go up 21-14. Baker made it 21-21 at halftime on another scoring pass from Page to Leeman. The Wildcats went ahead with 12:00 left as Page and Leeman hooked up for the third time.
