But the Cyclones, noticeably weary at the finish, didn't go down without putting up a stubborn fight as 36,000 fans, the largest crowd ever at Clyde Williams' field, witnessed the scoring show. THE CORNHUSKERS, ranked No. 4 in the nation behind Texas, Notre Dame and Ohio State, maintained their unbeaten status with their fifth straight conference triumph. Their record now is 8-0-1, th.e deadlock being with Southern California. Iowa State, scoring twice with less than two minutes to play to make the final tally look more respectable, went down to fifth straight loss, against three victories over nonconference foes. With Van Brownson who usually starts at quarterback on the sidelines with an arm injury, Jerry Tagge masterfully directed the powerful Huskers in an offensive display that netted a total of 342 yards on the ground and 223 BIO 10 Confertnc WIT 5 0 0 Season WLT 10 0 Michigan Ohio Stat Northwestern Michigan Slatt Iowa Minnesota Purdu Illinois VVKronsin Indian s 4 J 2 1 1 I 1 1 IO I CnleriK WLT S 0 0 5 1 0 3 1 0 2 1 0 2 3 0 1 1 0 t 4 0 0 S 0 Season I 0 1 Nebraska Karsat Stat Oklahoma Kansas Missouri Oklahoma StaW Colorado low Stat Tim Sullivan, Iowa Hawkeye fullback, crashes through the Indiana defensive line in the second quarter of Saturday's game at Iowa City.

Van Brown-son, a product of Shenandoah, Iowa, was in the game only to hold the ball for six extra point kicks by Paul Rogers cf Rock Rapids, Iowa. Tagge was at the controls for all but the final minute. THE HUSKERS' junior quarterback from Green Bay, Wis., passed for two touchdowns and scored one himself. But his aerial throws also figured in some of the other Nebraska touchdowns. Joe Orduna, senior halfback from Omaha, registered three touchdowns on runs of 3, 1 and 6 yards as he became the top ground gainer with over 1,800 career yards. Orduna's first two touchdowns capped drives of 74 and 66 yards in the opening period to send the Huskers off to a 12-10 lead. Fullback Dan Schneiss who gained 92 yards in 14 carries got two touchdowns, one on a seven-yard pass and the other on a 23-yard run. Johnny Rodgers, fleet soph halfback from Omaha took the other scoring pass from Tagge, a 14-yarder. The final Huskers TD came late in the fourth quarter on a three-yard run by Frank Vactor. ALL FOUR Iowa State touchdowns came on passes, with Dean Carlson and George Amundson each throwing for a pair. After Nebraska's first two touchdowns, Reggie Shoe-make put the Cyclones on the board with a 39-yard field goal. On the play before the kick, Otto Stowe scored on an end around but a penalty rubbed out the TD. Then followed touchdowns by Tagge and Schneiss, the later on a pass to hike the Huskers' spread to 26-3. With less than two minutes to go in the half, the Cyclones moved 63 yards in five plays.

On the next play, Stowe, who coach Johnny Majors says is the best offensive end in the country, made a great catch on the dead run in the corner of the end zone with 47 seconds left in the half. Then to show his versatility, Stowe ran for two extra points on a double reverse from his end position, making it 26-11 at intermission. Rodgers' touchdown catch with 4:33 left in third quarter put the Huskers spread at 33-11, but the Cyclones bounced right back, scoring less than a half minute later. Carlson hit fullback Jock Johnson on a 20-yard play. Johnson was all alone when he caught the ball on a short toss over the middle and scampered the remaining 15 yards to score. Until the closing two minutes, Nebraska was in complete control, holding a commanding lead at 54-17. Dennis McDonald, a reserve back from Morning Sun, aided the Cyclones' 66-yard drive that started with 5:34 remaining in the game.

(AP) - John Brockington's throe touchdowns paced t he third-ranked Ohio State to a 24-7 Big Ten conference football victory over an out-manned but determined Wisconsin team Saturday afternoon. The victory ran Ohio Slate's season record to 7-0. Wisconsin is now 2-5-1 for the season and 1-4 in Big Ten play. BROCKINGTON, a 6-fool-l, 220-pound senior fullback from Brooklyn, N.Y., bulled his way 11 yards in the opening moments of the second period for his initial score.

Saturday, in Iowa Stadium, the Hawkeyes did a most unusual thing. They scored 42 points and beat the daylights out of somebody else for a change. NO fumbling, no frustration, just scads of points. Big Ten Conference rival Indiana was the fall guy 42-13. The Hoosiers came to Iowa City and committed suicide for the seventh time in eight games this season. L o t s of delightful things happened to the Hawkeyes in this Dad's Day free-for-all. Of paramount importance may have been the emergence of a starting quarterback at last, senior reserve Roy Bash. He started the game and directed Iowa's furious offense splendidly. Bash ran the quarterback option like winged victory and passed timidly, but timely. This was the same Roy Bash whom Iowa coach Ray Nagel benched nearly a month ago for failing to move the team. BASH had a bad shoulder at the time, but sophomore Kyle Skogman was also beating him out of the job. As Skogman's star has fallen progressively in recent weeks a healthy Bash has been waiting in the wings. , Saturday, he was the difference. He scored Iowa's first touchdown and directed a slashing ground attack that sliced the feeble-tackling "(4, City. The Hoosiers' Charley Byrnes dropped the ball when he was hit while in mid-air. One of the Hawkeye defenders is defensive back Rich Solomon (45.) (Max Winter Photo) In 2nd Half 10-7 halftime lead. The battling Wisconsin Badgers Intercepted five OSU passes to stay within striking range through most of the game. However, the home team, playing before a record crowd of 72,758, failed to sustain any long drives. WITH BROCKINGTON leading the way, Ohio State outgained the Badgers on the ground 141 yards to 70. In the air, Ohio State led 158 to 121. Brockington finished with 83 yards rushing in 21 carries. Ron Maciejowski, the Buckeyes backup quarterback, completed five of 13 passes for 141 yards, but had four of his aerials picked off. tailback Mike Saint who came off the bench in the second half to help establish the Razorbacks' ground game. John Richardson had started at tailback in place or Bill Burnett, but lost two fumbles in the first half. Saint rushed for 65 yards and scored twice, The victory upped Arkan- Hoosier defenses to ribbons. Another thing happened Saturday. Iowa scored more points during the first half 27 than during any four quarters previously this season. Bash was behind that and so were Iowa's usual troublemakers tailback Levi Mitchell and fullback Tim Sullivan.

On the other two occasions McClard missed a field goal and Richardson fumbled at the four. cracks in opposing lines. He was marvelous, flitting about in Indiana's backyard for 113 yards in 13 carries during the first half alone. Sullivan had his say about Indiana's demise, too. The burly redhead threw his usual assortment o f crunching blocks and carried the ball 13 limes for 71 yards in the first half. The game was actually won then. Bash and the trouble twins had Indiana on the ropes before it was even two quarters old. HOLD on, there was more to this Iowa victory. Indiana was a pathetic football team, but Iowa's offense and defense was genuinely so-r.e-thing to behold. It was much more imaginative than usual, with wingbnek Denny Green, tight end Ray Manning and reserve halfback Dave Harris playing interesting parts. Bash threw to Manning twice for completions of nine and 15 yards. Hawkeye quarterbacks have rarely thrown to him this season, though he is the fourth leading receiver in number of catches in Iowa history. Instead of just blocking, Green caueht a .Ifi-yard scoring pass from Bnsh in the second quarter. He also ran the ball two times for 24 yards, serving notice to fit-t u r e Iowa opponents that Mitchell and Sullivan are not the only weapons 1n the arsenal. On Green's first official carry cf the year, he peeled off 21 yards. AN effective passing game a'so buoyed Iowa's victory offensive. Bash completed six-of-six during the game for 113 yards. Reserves Skoqmnn and Harris ruined the perrentace late in the game, but not the effect. Bash was five-of-five in the first half for 98 yards. The fumbling Hoosiers contributed their fair share to the massacre, too. Indiana came into the game all hum, up about turning the ball over to opponents bv "mistake. It had happened 33 times obviously and Saturday it happened four times more. Iowa turned two of those flubs into first half touchdowns. The goofs plus an absurd defense signaled an early Iowa runaway. Indiana supplied the Hawkeyes with abundant scoring opportunities and kicker Marcos Me-lemlez blew one of them, a 27-yard field goal attempt in the first quarter. THIS Indiana team is rapidly becoming coach Johnny Pont's worst at the school since a 1-8-1 performer in 16. At 1-44 and 1-7-0, Indiana is presently tied for the Bic; Ten Conference cellar. Iowa began its climb into the first division when defensive end Jerry Nelson smacked Indiana's starting quarterback Ted McNullv, causing a fumble enrly in the first quarter. Linebacker Dave Clement pounced on the ball at Ihe Hoosier 32. It took nine plnys to travel those 32 yards. Passing was the key. Bash lofted a wobbler to Sullivan hurtling out of the backfield over center for an 18-yard gain to the 19. Four plays later, Bash found Levi. MITCHELL'S fancy fool-work made the play a 17-yard gain. He caught the ball shortly beyond the line of scrimmage, fnked Hoosiers Steve Porter and Rob Spicer out of their shoes and darted to the two. Sullivan tried once for a yard. Then Bash followed center AI Cassady, guard Geoff Mickelson and tackle Clinch Legler into the end zone. Web-footrd Melendez had his placement blocked by Indiana's Chuck Thompson; A second touchdown came with 13:43 left in the second quarter. Bash completed a down-and-out pass to Mitchell and again, fancy dancing -IOWA Continued On Page 2B Statistics Ind 74 254 90 79 low 77 317 113 12 i 10-1 Pint wm Rushing yardao Passing yardao Return ytrdag Pasi 177 0 Punts 4-37 S FiimblM tf'St 3 Yards penalized 2?
