The Lincoln S(nr 1.1 4 Unbeaten Huskers In Need Of Playmate NEBRASKA NEEDS DATE FOR NEW YEAR'S NIGHT PARTY Monday, November 23, 1970 if i VW4T 1 TN the worst the Sooners, who are headed for an Astro Blucbonnet Bowl date with Alabama on New Year's Eve, can do is third even if the lose to the Cowboys. Colorado and Missouri have tied for fourth with 3-4 marks and an Oklahoma State win would pull the Cowboys into a three-way tie with the Buffs and Tigers. A loss would leave O-Statr tied with Kansas for sixth at. 2-5 and Iowa State, which meets San Diego State on Dec. 5, is last at 1-6.

IS I Arkansas on Dec. and Arizona State at 9-0 plays Arizona on Dec. 5. In a i i to Nebraska, teams that have completed unbeaten seasons arc Ohio State at 9-0, Dartmouth at 9-0 and Toledo at 11-0. Nebraska.

Ohio State and Toledo will put their undefeated marks on the line in bowl games with the Huskers in the Orange, Ohio State in the Rose against Stanford and Toledo in the Tangerine against William Mary. And Dartmouth has been challenged to a post-season game at Penn State coach Joe Paterno. In the Big Eight, the Huskers' victory Saturday gave them their sixth championship in the last eight years and Kansas State is assured of at least a tic for second place with a 5-2 record. Oklahoma now at 4-2 can tie the Wildcats by beating Oklahoma State Saturday and "When you're out on that field, you just go ahead and play football. You do what you're trained to do." Two of the more nervous viewers of the 28-21 contest were Orange Bowl officials Jim Llewellyn and Frank Rentz, who had visions of seeing their top bowl choice taking less than an unbeaten record to Miami.

"This is a heckuva ball game," Rentz exclaimed as he watched the action, "But that's not what I came to see." But a 53-yard scoring drive in which the Huskers three times had to come up with key third down plays midway in the final quarter salvaged the Husker victory and left them as one of only seven major colleges with unbeaten records and three of those seven still have games remaining. Notre Dame at 9-0 must meet Southern Cal Saturday; Texas at 8-0 has Texas Thanksgiving Day and Tennessee accepted dates elsewhere with Mississippi going to the Gator Bowl for a Southeastern Conferenc neighborhood battle against Auburn and Tennessee taking a Sugar Bowl offer to meet Air Force. Nebraska was the only one of three teams that had accepted bowl offers last week that came through unscathed Saturday. Texas Tech, which had accepted a Sun Bowl invitation, lost to Arkansas and Air Force, which had agreed to go to the Sugar Bowl, was bombed by Colorado, which may have jumped into the bowl picture with the victory. But the Huskers didn't come through it without a scare from Oklahoma and senior split end Guy Ingles thinks he knows how the coaches and fans feels as they watch such a game.

"You get a little nervous when you're standing on the sidelines," he admits, "But when you're in the game, you don't think much about it. By HAL BROWN Star Sports Editor Nebraska's football team, having wound up its second undefeated regular season in head coach Bob Devaney's nine years at the helm, must now wait while Orange Bowl officials go knocking on doors in an effort to get someone to come outside and play with the Huskers. The most likely opponent for the Huskers to play with on New Year's Night in Miami now appears to be LSU, a 3-0 loser to Cotton Bowl-bound Notre Dame Saturday. The Orange Bowl Committee knocked first on Notre Dame's door in trying to get a date for their New Year's Night party and were turned down by the Fighting Irish, who- said they'd prefer to gamble that Texas can cam a return trip to the Cotton Bowl. And while the Orange Bowl was waiting on Notre Dame's answer, two other possible Husker foes Mississippi and Sports Menu 0 Tuesday BOXING Golden Gloves Smoker, Pershing Auditorium, 6 p.m.

Wednesday Nothing scheduled. STAR PHOTO Tagge Gets Winning Score CH0ISE com 111 UJ Hope For Texas Rematch Title Hopes Slim For Cowboys By TOM HENDERSON Star Sports Writer One Of A Series the Irish were beaten 21-17 in the 1970 Cotton Bowl contest by Texas, the nation's No. 1 team in 1969. "This was their decision. They did want to return to Dallas to play the champion of the Southwest Conference," Father Joyce said.

The invitation to return to the bowl was made by Field Scovill, chairman of the Cotton Bowl Selection Committee. Scovill said, "They (the players) had a rather difficult decision to make it was not hard for us." "We're happy to have this great football team coming back to Dallas," Scovill said. The Irish, 9-0 after a 3-0 victory Saturday over seventh-ranked Louisiana State, also received invitations to the Orange Bowl in Miami and the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. "We're delighted to be able to go back to Dallas," said Parscghian. "We played a great football team there a year ago." South Bend, lnd.

i.f) -Notre-Dame, the nation's second-ranked football team, accepted Sunday an invitation to return to the Cotton Bowl game in Dallas Jan. 1. The announcement was made at a news conference by the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, executive vice president and chairman of the faculty board in control of athletics.

Notre Dame coach Ara Par-scghian said that members of the team voted earlier in the dav to return to Dallas where Of the Big Eieht Conference two new head basketball coaches, Oklahoma State's Sam Aubrey is probably least on the spot. Auorey, who takes over for retired Big Eight institution Hank Iba, inherits a team which, despite having a 14-12 overall record last season, managed only a 5-9 conference mark to tie with Iowa State for seventh place in the league standings. CX THE THIRD HALF ft By Tom Henderson Star Sports Writer There's nowhere to 0 but ud for the Cowboys and Iba left Aubrey with an experienced club including eight veterans to Parscghian told newsmen that the school and the team had a difficult time making the decision. "They had a major problem making a decision trying to anticipate what might happen," Parscghian said referring to the Dec. 5 battle between Texas and Arkansas.

A victory by Texas over the Razorbacks would give the Longborns, the nation's No. 1 team an undefeated season and a rematch with the Irish. An Arkansas victory would give the Razorbacks, ranked sixth in the nation, a shot at Notre Dame. make the move.

In discussing the league outlook for the coming basketball season, Kansas and Kansas State were mentioned by five of the Big Eight coaches as title contenders, while Colorado and Oklahoma were tabbed twice and Nebraska three times. Most, of the coaches listed at least four teams, again indicating their strong belief in the league's balance. In fact, Oklahoma's John MacLeod listed seven contenders, failing to mention only his own Sooners. Here's what they had to say as they prepare their teams fnr the season openers.

GLEN ANDERSON, Iowa State-'The Conference race will, as always, be strong. Balance is again evident several teams will have a good chance to win, just as has been the case the last couple of years." JACK HARTMAN, Kansas State "Since I'm new to the leaague, it would be difficult for me to try to evaluate the conference at this lime. I do believe it will be a balanced league with very few teams on a par below the expected title contenders." 'All Capable' SAM AUBREY, Oklahoma State-'The top teams in the Big Eight are going to be tougher than gangbusters this year. At the top, I'd put Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado, and Oklahoma-they appear to have the best material coming back. The other four of us will be scrambling to keep our heads above water."

Colorado 49, Air Force 19 "It was difficult for our youngsters to. make a decision based on what might happen, but they would like to be playing for the national championship. That would be ideal," Parscghian remarked. He added, "anybody that can beat Texas would be a great football team." "I hope next year the NCAA will make the bowl committees wait until the conclusion of the football season to issue their invitations," Parseghian added. Asked what he thought about Notre Dame playing in Dallas, Texas coach Darrell Darrell Royal said Sunday, "We're not in the Cotton Bowl.

Selecting the visiting team in the Cotton Bowl is the selection committee's business. It's our business to take care of the rest of our schedule, Texas on Thanksgiving and Arkansas on Dec. 5.

RUSSELL "SOX" WALSETH, Big Eight is just like it has been in recent years, with everybody able to beat everybody else and nobody having a big edge.

I won't name any one or two teams, because we are all capable of winning it. I guess on paper a lot of teams are very similar, with lots of people back and sound personnel." TED OWENS, Kansas "On the basis or returning veterans, it would appear Kansas Slate, Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Kansas would have the best chance of winning the championship." NORM STEWART, Missouri "Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma look outstanding to me. Oklahoma State has three of its key players returning too. Iowa State and Missouri will have almost new teams." JOHN MacLEOD, Oklahoma "Kansas, Kansas State, and Nebraska are going to be exceptionally strong teams this year. It's frightening the height and inside strength that some of the teams in the Big Eight will have.

You can't forget Colorado, Iowa State and Missouri, nor Oklahoma State, either. All have good personnel returning and will be dangerous." JOE CIPRIANO, appears again that the Big Eight is headed for another well-balanced race. There aren't as many players returning around the conference as there were last year. The main contenders, and I guess they'd have to be Kansas, Kansas State, Colorado and Oklahoma, all return key players. The conference has had a surprise winner the last two years and it could happen again this season."
