The Big Red will have that opportunity when it opens its season Sunday, at the Cornell Duals in Barton Hall.

And not N6braska's gritty 13-3 victory over a 6-5 Oklahoma team, a win that kept the top-ranked Comhuskers unbeaten and put them in the Orange Bowl as Big Eight champions for the fourth straight year, but was not the type to captivate the fickle electorate. Besides all that, there may be a Nebraska quarterback dilemma down the road. "We'll let people decide what they want to decide," Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said of the polls after the 12-0 Comhuskers won their 25th straight regular season game. "We'll settle it on the field." Indeed, Nebraska is now where it wants to be an Orange 13owl away Cornell Duals 11 a.m.: Cornell vs. Wagner, Bloomsburg vs. Brown 1 p.m.: Come!! vs. Bloomsburg, Brown vs. Wagner 3 p.m.: Cornell vs. Brown, Wagner vs. Bloomsburg Mike Yancosky have their sights set on returning the Big Red grapplers back to the top of the Ivy League, a title they had won seven straight times until Pennsylvania took the league crown in 1993-94. The first thing the Big Red must do is replace the six starters missing from last year's team. Once the lineup is straightened out, the team can concentrate on retaking the Ivy League championship. But that won't be easy as Pennsylvania has nearly everyone back from its best team in recent history and Brown is expected to have another strong squad in 1994-95. Elliott made 22 saves in the first period alone as Cornell led 1-0 after one. Cornell took advantage of a 5-on-3 advantage to score the game's firs goal. Defenseman Steve Wilson used a screen in front to fire home a power-play goal at the 4:20 mark of the first period for his fourth goal of the season. Bill Holowatiuk and Tyler McManus were credited with assists. The Big Red held a 1-0 lead after the opening period, but the Varsity Blues rallied in the second to take a 2-1 lead. Sajko scored both goals, the first on the power play just 40 seconds into the The Associated Press to beat the Sooners 13-3 Thursday. Undefeated Nebraska earned a spot in the Orange Bowl with the win. from the national championship. But it is dangerous territory. The Corn-huskers will likely have to play Miami on its home field, and history is not comforting. They have lost five straight Orange Bowls, three to the Hurricanes. "I think everybody on this team wants Miami down there," Nebraska tackle Rob Zatechka said. "This is an opportunity for us to prove to people we can play on a national level. Any win over Miami is going to be a great win. "If we are No. I in the country, if we are the best team, I don't think we should make excuses, like we're playing Miami on their home turf if we don't play well." "It's very difficult losing as many experienced wrestlers as we did," said Koll. "It is hard to make predictions on a team with this many young faces a team that is this young." Here's a look at the 1994-95 Big Red, weight-by-weight: 118: Sophomores Doug Titus and Dennis Kitko figure to battle for the starting spot, though it will be Titus' initially as Kitko won't be eligible to wrestle until after the first semester. 126: Senior Jim Meek ley returns after two injury-plagued seasons. A first-team All-lvy wrestler at 118 pounds as a freshman, Meek ley will finally get his shot after posting a 17-3 reawd in 1991-92. Meek ley missed all but one match in 1993-94 due to a hip injury, which healed over the summer. 134: Entering the 1993-94 season, the biggest question regarding the Big Red was how does a team replace a wrestler like Mark Fergeson. Well, Yancosky answered that question by posting a 34-8 record and placed third at the EIWA championships, earning period as Come ll's McManus had went off on a high-sticking call late in the first. His second goal was a controversial, 50-foot shot. Sajko took a feed from Jamie Coon and was apparently off-sides, but no whistle was blown and Saiko blasted it past an surprised Elliott. Toronto took that 2-1 lead into the third period as Cornell squandered a four-minute power play which spread over the end of the second into the third. On the night, the Big Red was 1-for-7 with the man advantage. Welsh's goal made it 3-1 at the 4:24 mark of the third period before J1Yfltt11 But the question for now is if Nebraska will still be No. 1 next week. The voters have Alabama and Penn State to consider, and little came easy for Nebraska against a Sooner team fighting to send outgoing coach Gary Gibbs out a winner. Nebraska's total offensive production the first three periods was two field goals. The nation's No. I ground game rushed for only 136 yards. Lawrence Phillips had only 50 yards in 21 carries, held under 100 yards for the first time this season. More? The Cornhuskers had minus-8 yards of total offense in the second period. Nebraska quarterbacks had been sacked four times all See NEBRASKA, 4B a trip to the NCAAs. 142: This is another weight where the Red lost a starter in Glenn Walter.

Manney, who was the New York state champ. and placed fifth at the 1993 E1WAs as a junior, is expected to get the Red some big team points. 167: Senior Trip Rodgers was given the opportunity to show what he could do in 1993-94 and he went 14-17, but was only 2-9 in dual matches. Rodgers, who was fourth at the 1994 New York state championships, will Cornell rallied. Cooney's goal at the 7:27 mark of the third assisted by Mark Sco Ilan and liolowatiuk pulled the Big Red within 3-2, but Cornell could not get the tying score it needed. Toronto goaltender Scott Galt was outstanding over the first two periods, stopping 40 shots before leaving early in the third after being injured in a goal mouth scramble. Ile was replaced by Ryan Spring. who made 12 saves in the third period and allowed just one goal. By HOWARD LIMAN The Associated Press BOSTON Negotiators in the NI IL labor dispute finally agree on one issue: some kind of a nx)kie cap is needed to slow rising salaries. A league-wide salary cap may be another matter, however. With the NI-IL and its players union resuming negotiations Friday in Boston and expected to take the talks into today, the luxury tax to help small-market teams seemed to be the most divisive issue in the work stoppage that has silenced the season for 56 days. Not only between the negotiators but among the owners as well. Some hard-liners, like Peter Pocklington of the Edmonton Oilers, would sacrifice the season over the contentious luxury tax issue. Others, like Winnipeg's Barry Shenkarow, take a more moderate view. "It's not a matter of a showdown," Pocklington told the Edmonton Sun. "(The tax) is what we wanted all along. We have to have it or there won't be a deal." Told that the players might walk out if the issue is introduced at the bargaining table, Pocklington said: "That's fine. Let them walk. I'm fed up." Shenkatuw, meanwhile, is trying to keep an open mind, in the wake of the rookie cap that the negotiators have agreed to in principle. "You have to see the whole package," he said. "A rookie salary cap is not enough (of a tradeoff). It depends on what other things are included." A source told AP the sides have agreed to a rookie cap, although specilks have not yet been worked out. The players, meanwhile, are strongly opposed to the owners' idea of a tax system. They say it has the same effect as a salary nip. The owners want to tax teams that exceed a payroll alp, based on the average team salary in the NHL, and pass the pruceeds on to teams under the prescribed limit.
