Devaney Happy In 2nd Conk From Page ID But after that shaky start, things got better. . "I was probably as pleased' about the last part of the first quarter and the second quarter as about any other part of the game,? he pointed out. "Once we got started, we played good ball In the first half." : ' Another pleasing thing to Devaney was that he was able to use a number of players. . think we got to play everyone on the squad that we're , not thinking of red shirting," he observed. "This gave ns a chance to look at them under game conditions and. It wfil give us film by which to study their performance under game conditions.". Before studying the films, the Husker head coach cited a couple of players who came off the bench and turned in what he considered good performances. "Willie Harper (defensive end) showed promise," he noted, "'And Larry Jacobson (defensive tackle) came in and played pretty good, although he's played some ball for us before." The Husker coach also was satisfied with sophomore quarterback Bob Jones, who spelled Jerry Tagge in the final minutes of the second quarter and much of the second half. "We used Tagge about as Nicklaus Leading In Golfing Series Akron, Ohio UB - Jack Nicklaus stormed in with a four-under-par 66 and swept to a three-stroke lead Saturday in the first round of the World Series of Golf. Nicklaus, the British Open champion and pre-tourney favorite for the $50,000 first prize in this elite event, picked up three strokes in two holes' on the back nine of the 7,180-yard Firestone Country Club course as he threatened to make a rout of it. Dave Stockton, the tourney darkhorse and reigning PGA champion, was second after he birdied the final hole for a 69. Billy Casper, the Masters champion, and E n g 1 a n d s young Tony Jacklin, the U.S. Open titleholder, had 71s in the near-perfect playing conditions and trailed Nicklaus by five strokes with one round to go Sunday in the tournament thai matches the holders of the world's four major championships.

A couple of other reserves who caught his eye were split end Woody Cox and fullback Bill Olds. : m , And a couple of spots that he said would get some study in films this week were left guard and center. 1 " "We want to take a close look at. that left guard spot where we have Bruce Weber, Keith Wortman and Dick Rupert and the center where we played both Doug Duniler and Doug Jamail," he said. . Although Wake Forest com pleted 11 of 17 passes for 138 yards, Devaney was not disappointed in the work of his defensive secondary where Jim Anderson is the only experienced performer. . "On most passes, our coverage was not bad when our first team was in there," he said. "Their pass percentage and completion yardage might be more than we would expect, but I don't know how much of that they did when our reserves were in there at the end of the game. "If we can hold Southern Cal to 138 yards passing, we'll be all right, but I'm afraid we're also going to have, to worry more about their (Southern Cal's) running game, too." The key to Nicklaus' lead came on the 11th and 12th holes. He birdied both while the other three played the 11th in par and all three bogeyed the 12th, giving Nicklaus a three-stroke swing in two holes. Nicklaus canned a 15-footer for a birdie on the 16th to go four ahead of the field. Only Stockton's 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole kept him within sight. "I scored well, but hit the ball not so well" said Nicklaus, who has won this tournament three times in five previous appearances. "I missed seven fairways," Nicklaus said "but I can't complain. I'm ver pleased I was able to manage my game as well as I did. I used what I had. My putter was pretty effective. And I didn't make any mistakes." Asked if they were surprised at Nicklaus' commanding lead, Jacklin said: "Nothing surprises me with him anymore." Net Win No. 1 Doubles SECOND ROUND John Duncan-Andy Berger, SE, def.

Manhattan, Kan. OD Blocked punts by defensive end Mike Kuhn produced a safety and set up a touchdown that spurred Kansas State to a 37-0 intersectional football victory over Utah State on this cold and gray Saturday. Kuhn and the wind were headaches for Utah Aggie punter Mickey Doyle all afternoon. With Kansas State's of fensive sputtering badly, Kuhn took charge late in the first period, blocked Doyle's punt out of the goal line shadows and the ball trickled through the end zone for the safety. Time was running out in the quarter when Kuhn charged into another of Doyle's kicks at the Utah State 30. Six plays later, Mike Montgomery sprinted around left end for the final 11 yards and the first of his two touchdowns. Doyle, the young sophomore, trying to punt with the onrushing Kuhn closing hi, got only 11 yards on one kick, and minus-three yards on another in the second half. Kansas State made touchdowns after both kicks fizzled. Tailback Bill Butler capped a 25-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run, and Montgomery dived over from the three on another. The Wildcats, with star quarterback Lynn Dickey unable to find the passing range until midway through the second half, turned the game into a rout in the fourth quarter when interceptions of Utah State passes paved the way for two touchdowns. Henry Hawthorne scored one from a yard out, and Tim McLane the other on a three-yard burst. Max Arreguin kicked the five extra points. The crowd of 35,000 gasped when Dickey, the darling of the Purple Pride, threw a pass on the first play from scrimmage and had to leave the game. He caught a finger in his eye but returned shortly. Dickey, regarded by Kansas State coach Vince Gibson as America's greatest college quarterback, completed 10 of 29 passes for 109 yards. In the first half, he had only two of 12 for 15 yards. Montgomery put on the Wildcats offensive show. He carried 16 times for 106 yards and ground out his best yardage when Kansas State was touchdown bound. The Kansas State touchdowns came on drives of 30, 25, 10, 48 and 24 yards. 1 Steve Beyrle, Kansas State's No. 1 offensive center, broke his hand on the first series of plays and will be out of action two to three weeks. "The difference in the game was that we made no big mistakes, fumbles or pass interceptions," Gibson said. "We did make a lot of little mistakes. "Overall, I was pleased. Our offense was ragged but our defense played real well. Dickey didn't play well in the first half but came back in the second. Montgomery had a great day. Mike Kuhn had a super day. Utah State's offense never nad very good field position, which is a credit to our defense." Utah State coach Chuck Mills summed up his team's defeat this way: "We didn't look 37 points worse than Kansas State but we did make 37 points worth of mistakes. We didn't do anything to help ourselves. "Kansas State has a great football team. They have everything speed, size and depth. Nobody should beat them."

M Oklahoma's pass-thieving Sooners victimized collegiate football's all-time completion king with four first-half interceptions Saturday night and cashed two of them into touchdowns within 61 seconds as the Big Red rolled to a 28-11 intersectional victory over pesky Southern Methodist. SMU's Chucir Hi x son established a new NCAA pass completion record but the tosses Oklahoma caught were Southern California Monopolizing Thoughts of Cornhusker Players By HAL BROWN It wasn't that the Nebraska football team was looking past Wake Forest, but most admitted after the opening victory that thoughts of Southern California had already begun to creep into their minds early. One of those who has been thinking about the Trojans, this week's foe in Los Angeles Saturday night, is Johnny Rodgers, who made an impressive, to say the least, debut as a Husker. "To me, I want that one more than anything," he said referring to the- Southern Cal game, "Because that's where I was going to go to school before I came here and I want to show them what they missed. "I was all ready to go there when they told me I had to go to summer school and take a geometry course and I didn't like that idea too much." Rodgers is confident he and his Husker teammates can whip the highly-regarded Trojans. "I think the main reason Nebraska lost last year was that we thought they were more than they were. They're a good football team, but they're just like any other team. They can be beaten." Quarterback Jerry Tagge admitted he had been thinking some about the USC game for a long time. "It's going to be a tough game, but this year we're confident we can beat 'em. I think the end of last year's game with them proved that to us. "Last year, we were a little scared of them. We were kind of inexperienced offensively, but this year I think we have proven we can move the ball and score points." Center Doug Dumler figured, "Southern Cal will be a lot tougher than Wake Forest, but I think we can score on them. I'm looking forward to it. I think we're confident, but I think we're going to have to play real good ball." Head coach Bob Devaney sees the difference thusly: "Last year, everybody was kind of wondering about USC. We went into that game in an experimental stage. We didn't have an experienced quarterback for one thing. "This year, we know a little more about what we've got to do." One of the areas that is sure to be tested by the Trojans is the Huskers' inexperienced defensive secondary where Jim Anderson is the only returning veteran and Anderson had hoped that Wake Forest would have given him and his cohorts a little more experience Saturday. 4600 AGES 6-12: 75e. FREE MtH oit X Tackle The victory before 34,000 fans snapped an eight-game losing streak for the Jayhawks, while Washington State extended Its losing streak to 10 games. Both suffered through 1-9 seasons in 1969. Palmer's 26-yard romp with a pass thrown by Cougar sophomore Ty Paine gave Kansas a 34-17 lead midway of the third quarter. The Cougars never caught up but were within three points in the final period. Heck's third scoring pass, a Stymie the ones that got the Mustangs Into trouble. Hixson completed 24 passes for a new NCAA record of 506 completions to break the old career record of 491 set by Steve Ramsey of North Texas State. The Big Eight Club exploded for 21 points in the second period before 51,909 fans in the Cotton Bowl after SMU had taken a brief 3-0 lead on Chip "We didn't really get tested," he noted. "I was surprised that they didn't try to throw more. Even when they got behind, they kept running those option plays. The real test will come this week. "I wish we would have had more action back there today because we could have used the experience." One Husker who got some experience was converted center Dumler, playing his first game at that position. "Obviously, I like it," he said, "Because it gives me a chance to piay and I'm having fun there." Another player getting varsity experience for the first time was Rodgers, who had the crowd buzzing just by fielding the kickoff early in the game after the Wake Forest field goal. "I didn't hear them until after I got up following the play," he said. Rodgers admitted he was nervous about his Husker debut, but pointed out that he didn't get sick as he often does before a game. "I was real nervous Friday night and this morning," he said, "But I didn't get sick and after I got out on the field, I got over the nervousness." He explained that the TD pass he caught from Tagge was worked out between h i m and Tagge on the sidelines while the defense was on the field. "We had tried it once before," he offered, "But I got too close to the middle of the field and the safety was able to come over and cover me. "We talked about it and decided if I stayed closer to the sidelines and could beat the halfback, I'd be in the clear." He did and he was as Tagge laid the ball in his arms behind the halfback and he went into the end zone untouched. A player with experience, but who was making a return to action after a year's layoff with two knee operations, was I back Joe Orduna. "That was the first touchdown I've scored since the Colorado game in 1968," he recalled in answer to a question. "The knees felt fine." He gave some credit to the AstroTurf for his second TD of the game as he galloped into the end zone after being knocked off balance by a would-be tackier. "I thought I was going down," he recalled, "And I don't know how I stayed up. The artificial turf might have had something to do with it." Despite his impressive performance, Orduna admitted, "I'm still a little rusty. You always have a few mistakes in North 27.h Lumbers for Touchdown 3-yarder to John Rlggins, blunted the Washington State comeback in the fourth quarter after the Cougars went 45 and 30 yards for quick touchdowns. Heck's pass to Riggins gave SMU, 28-11 per Johnson's 31-yard field goal in the opening quarter. After Roy Bell had plunged one yard for a Sooner score, linebacker Jerry Baccus naobed a Hixon pass and rambled to the Mustang 13. Quarterback Jack Mildren sneaked across from the one four plays later. On SMU's next play from scrimmage, Geoffrey Nordgren snared a Hixson toss and brought it back to the SMU 20. Following a penalty, Mildren found Jon Harrison floating a first game. I really want to do better next week." Quarterback Tagge was nursing his sore leg as he talked with writers. "I didn't notice it during the first half," he said of the sore leg, "And the more I ran on it, the more it loosened up. But then at halftime it tightened up a little and when I was out of the game it would tighten up a little." He figured the leg might Okla. St. Beaten, 14-13 Jackson, Miss, W) Quarterback Joe Reed got Mississippi State's erratic offense clicking at key moments Saturday night and the Maroons eaked out a 14-13 intersectional football victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys. State drove 80 yards in the fourth period to come from behind, with Reed picking up key yardage on his fullbacklike runs and a 10-yard pass to flanker David Smith. Trapped behind his own line, Reed reversed his field and went 18 yards to the Cowboy one to set up the winning tally. Sophomore tailback Lewis Grubbs smashed through guard and Glenn Ellis got his second conversion for the margin of victory.

"I may have been conscious of it," he admitted "and not wanting to get tackled, I may not have waited back there as long as I should have some times. "The line was giving me great protection, but I think a few times I panicked and ran out of the protection a little too soon." plagued both teams. The Maroons had five passes intercepted in the first half, while the Cowboys lost the ball three times on fumbles before intermission. Reed ran 30 yards for a first period tally that gave State a 7-3 halftime advantage, but Uwe Pruss second field goal and a 30-yard pass from quarterback Tony Pounds to split-end Hermann Eben put the Cowboys ahead in the third period.

Riggins got the biggest chunk . of his rushing yardage on the j second play of the game, bolting 39 yards over tackle. The run set up a 37-yard field goal by Bob Helmbacher, a 152-pound kicker from Kansas City, Mo., who accounted for 12 of Kansas' points. The Jayhawks struck again quickly on a 51-yard touchdown j pass from Heck to another transfer, Lucius Turner, for a 100 lead with the game just 3ft minutes old.
