ucfcs OSS Keyed Huskers By DAVE HEEREN Sports Staff Writer MIAMI Two hours before the start of the Orange Bowl game, the Nebraska Cornhuskers were down. All it took was four words to get them up. . "Somebody with a radio said, 'Ohio State is losing,' and that did it," said middle guard Ed Periard. "After that, we were sky high." Even though the Nebraska players knew No. 1 Texas had lost, when they left the hotel for the Orange Bowl No. 2 Ohio State was leading Stanford. "We were grouchy," said Periard. "We were complaining about everything. The bus was late and the traffic was bad. We just weren't in the mood to play football." ; It was Periard who proved the mood of the, Nebraska team had changed. On LSU's third offensive play of the game, , he tackled quarterback Buddy Lee for a 10-yard loss, then jumped to his feet and . leaped into the air, clapping his hands. "When we heard Ohio State was losing, we knew what was on the line," said Periard. "We knew we would most likely be the No. 1 team if we beat LSU."

It's obvious from the Huskers viewpoint who is the No. 1 team in the land. (AP Wlrephoto) players was manifest in - two ways . against LSU, one good and one bad. : Physically, they smashed the powerful Tigers worse than any team had all year. They tackled LSU, quarterbacks eight times for a total of 84 yards in losses and crashed through the Tigers' previously impregnable defensive line for two touchdowns on the ground. Those two matched the total of LSU's previous 11 opponents combined. But the enthusiasm also hurt the Cornhuskers. They were jittery with the football, fumbling three times and dropping passes that could have led to touchdowns. And they were frequently guilty of violations that resulted in drive-killing penalties. They were penalized 67 yards, 40 more than LSU, . Otherwise, Nebraska clearly was su perior to LSU. Since the other contender for the national championship, Notre Dame, did not establish such superiority in a 3-0 victory over the Tigers and since Notre Dame also lost by 10 points to USC the team that tied Nebraska the Cornhuskers were unanimous in agreement that they should be selected the No. 1 team. But, aware of Notre Dame's perennial popularity in national polls and the emotion generated by its victory over Texas, some of the Huskers were less certain" than others about the outcome of the polls. "We have the longest winning streak of the season, we are the only unbeaten eaim, and we have won by bigger scores against tougher opponents all season , man Notre Dame," said Periard. "I'd say we most likely are No. 1." "I'm not so sure," said running back Joe Orduna. "I think we should be No". 1, but we did not play our best game against LSU. We won, but we weren't overwhelming the way we wanted to be.? , , 'Defensive back Bob Terrio, who intercepted a pass in the closing seconds to end LSU's hopes of an upset, was more positive: "We are No. 1. There is no doubt about it." "We better be!' Donnie McGhee. exclaimed guard Certainly, the Huskers' record is impressive. In winning 11 games and tying one, they crushed a succession of quality opponents, running up scores like 65-31, 54-29, 51-13, and 28-0. They beat Minnesota, 35-10, and routed Kansas, 41-20. The 17 points they scored against LSU was their lowest point total of the season. "Everybody thinks we play conservative football because we usually don't pass much," said Coach Bob Devaney. "But actually we aren't conservative at all. We have done a lot of running all year because we feel we can run against anybody, even LSU (which led the nation in defense against rushing). But we also pass. Our game plan called for us to pass on first down the entire first half against LSU. We have confidence in our passing game. We have completed 60 per cent of our passes this year." In other words, the Cornhuskers believe they can do anything even beat popular Notre Dame at the polls.

It was a near thing. v But how could a person, in honesty, vote for Notre Dame? Its only loss was to Southern Cal, 38-28, in a mud bath. Nebraska tied the Trojans, 21-21, in the second game of the season when Southern Cal was undefeated, and presumably much stronger and more motivated than the 5-4-1 team that upset the Irish. After that, the Cornhuskers proceeded to go undefeated in the Big Eight, which may be the toughest conference in the United States. ' Nebraska wasn't exactly overwhelming against LSU. Its nervousness was apparent, losing four fumbles and throwing two interceptions m a game that was dominated by .the Huskers' fierce defensive line. Time after time, it slashed through LSU's blockers to dump Bengal quarterbacks Buddy Lee and Bert Jones for long and crucial losses. x The game itself was not particularly inspiring: Had Texas and Ohio State won earlier in the afternoon, the Orange Bowl would have been all but without excitement, j y Events outside the control of either the teams or the Orange Bowl Committee conspired to put fans on the razor's edge. An LSU victory would surely place Notre Dame first. A Nebraska win, of course, should put the Huskers there. . . ; The feeling persists that Notre Dame on Friday afternoon could have beaten any team in 'the country, Nebraska, Ohio State and Stanford included. Texas was not so much beaten as it was destroyed, reduced to fumbling ineptness on offense and desperate complaining to officials on defense. The team speed the Longhorns showed against Arkansas was missing. The thought begins to 'occur that Texas was maybe not so good as its record against mediocre opposition would lead us to believe. So now it is over, and Nebraska tops all the rest, the Pope's vote notwithstanding. (But then, if Devaney can vote for his own team, who is to say Notre Dame can't apply a little pressure and . ) .
