By JONATHAN RAND . Miami Newt Reporter LINCOLN, Neb. Steadman Scaveila, captain of the University of Miami defense, could not remember how Nebraska scored its first-half touchdown on Saturday. "I got my bell rung the first half," the defensive end said after Miami's 31-16 loss. "I don't remember how they scored or anything." In the second half it was impossible for even the most foggy-headed Hurricane to forget how Nebraska scored. The Cornhuskers presented their version of the Chinese water torture as they patiently and con- ' tinually broke down Miami's defense which had helped build a 9-7 halftime lead before a crowd of 76,-231. Most fans went home happier than the Hurricanes, who are now 0-3 with Colorado visiting the Or- ange Bowl on Friday night. "Nebraska has that steadiness to their offense," Scaveila said. "They pound, pound, pound." From the second-half kickoff Nebraska scored four straight times, running 45 plays to Miami's 17. Fourth-ranked Nebraska (4-0) did not control the ball so much as owned it. "You can't run the ball unless you have it," said Tim Morgan, who led Miami runners with 42 yards on 10 carries and a 49-yard kickoff re--turn that helped set up the last of three Chris Dennis field goals. "We . were standing on the sidelines and it was frustrating."

Nebraska's Tom Osborne may be the only head coach in the nation who wants a new quarterback before the" crowd does. . Starting quarterback Terry Luck heard no boos while the University of Miami gained a 9-7 lead on Saturday. But at halftime Osborne decided he wanted a new quarterback. Vince Ferragamo came in to complete eight of nine passes and direct four scoring drives for a 31-16 Nebraska victory. It was the third time in three seasons as head coach Osborne has changed quarterbacks with dramatic results. Nebraska invariably appears to have one more good quarterback than it needs. Yet somewhere along the line .Nebraska needs two quarterbacks. And somewhere along the line both help keep Nebraska among the nation's college football elite. , ' v ,,,.. ' "You can't play musical chairs "with your quarterbacks," Osborne said. "But you've got to give them a chance." . Osborne's standbys make the Na.

",!,n 1 run kicl Osborne is fortunate to have two return to the field, Nebraska quarterback Vince Ferragamo would turn a third down into another first down. During his four scoring drives he made first downs on 10 of 12 third-down plays and another on fourth down. Ferragamo's only failure at a first down resulted in Mike Coyle's 24-yard field goal. "We needed a nolding penalty or a fumble or an intercepted pass," said Miami head coach Carl Selmer. "Instead they seemed to keep making those third-down plays." As Miami's linebackers kept vacating their zones Nebraska receivers were wide open for easy first-down catches. Nebraska was operating on the premise that if you hammer a wall long enough it will craek and if you hammer the crack long enough the wall will fall down. Miami's defense, so effective the previous week against finesse-minded Oklahoma, was outmuscled by Nebraska. "We're not what you call a big-play offense," said Nebraska head coadi Tom Osborne. "We're always trying to bang it out at four, six, eight yards a crack. In order to do that you have to have great discipline. You can't have fumbles or penalties you have to play without error." J Three times Nebraska got first downs after needing at least nine yards on third down. "We didn't play good thirddown ball," said Miami linebacker Gregg Wallick. While Nebraska was hardly missing a first down, Miami was hardly making one. The Hurricanes only managed two first downs while . their rivals were putting the game on ice. "We-did have the ball a couple of times in the second half and couldn't do anything with it," quarterback Kary Baker said. "It was frustrating standing on the sidelines, but it wasn't entirely the defense's fault we were there." Backup George Mason took Miami 80 yards to a late touchdown against Nebraska's second defense. The consequences of yesterday's defeat were rubbed in almost sadistically by the news of Colorado's one-point loss to top-ranked Oklahoma. The Hurricanes have as much chance to catch their breath as a swimmer six feet under. . "People might say you're the best 0-3 team in the nation, but it's frustrating to know you still haven't won a game," tight end Charlie Claud said. "Every week we're getting something in return," said Selmer after his unsuccessful return to where he had coached 11 years before coming to Miami in 1973. "Our kids are getting experience and they're hanging in there." Defensive : back Willie Jenkins agreed. "We can't lose them all," he said. "We've got to win one some time. We're still gonna beat a lot of people." Jenkins said he found some encouragement after being beaten by split end Bobby Thomas on a 40-yard pass from Ferragamo that completed Nebraska's scoring. He found a penny in the end zone. The Hurricanes are waiting for an opponent that isn't so stingy.

"I was in Terry's shoes last time," said Ferragamo, alluding to his benching whileN playing for California two years' ago. Rather than remain benched, Ferragamo transferred to Nebraska, where he sat out last season and is now a junior. Upstaging Ferragamo was Steve Bartkowski, the NFL's top draft choice last winter now starting for the Atlanta Falcons. For more than a season he played behind Ferragamo. "I still think I should've been No. 1 all the way," Ferragamo said. That claim may be brash, but' Ferragamo's passing on Saturday brings his season totals to 17-for-23 for 258 yards and two touchdowns. Luck has completed 35 of 60 passes for 363 yards and five touchdowns. , Next week Osborne must decide who to start against Kansas. Then he may decide who finishes.
