Frazier suffered a bruised knee in the first half. By Ken Hambleton Lincoln Journal-Star AMES, Iowa Emotion, and lack of it, played a major role in Iowa State's upset of Nebraska, NU Coach Tom Osborne said. "They played with a lot of emotion and played a great game," he said. "It looked like our tank was a little dry today. We played two very emotional games in a row. We talked a lot about the dangerousness of the situation and I don't know how much that sunk in." Apparently, preparation for the wishbone offense didn't sink in until the second half against Iowa State either, Osborne said. "Jim Walden (ISU coach) made a good decision to go with the wishbone because it's one our defensive coaches worried about in the transition from the other teams we played. Obviously, we didn't do a good job of that transition. Things change "We felt like we had a lot of things going for us the last two weeks," he said. "We warned our team that people were starting to say nice things about us, that we could fix in a week's time. And I'm afraid we have." Nebraska was tagged for the most yards it's given up in its last five games. Iowa State managed a field goal in the first quarter the most first-quarter points given up by NU this year and tacked on three more field goals in the second quarter to take the lead for good. Nebraska's comeback efforts were hampered by the fact freshman quarterback Tommie Frazier had a slightly injured left knee, and the NU defense struggled to solve the ISU wishbone attack, he said. "We were limited a bit with Tommie's injury," Osborne said. "We didn't want to run too many options with him. We thought about putting in Mike Grant, but we felt Tommie was functioning well enough." Frazier, who had two pads on his knee to protect further impact, said he was hurt on NU's last drive of the first half. Pain was there "I knew the pain was there," he said. "But I thought I could still get the job done. We knew they were ready to play when they drove the field and scored their first field goal. "We acted like we were ready, but we didn't get anything done. Iowa State stretched out our option and looked like they had prepared for everything we do pretty well." NU I-back Derek Brown, limited to 64 yards, while teammate Calvin Jones managed 28. said the problems on Nebraska's offense came from the ISU defense. "It was difficult to run a lot of things because they were flying to the ball so well," Brown said. "We couldn't get to the outside to turn the corner on the options and it didn't seem like there was anything we could do to change that." Nebraska defensive coordinator Charlie McBride said emotion carried the Cyclones. "Emotionally, they were way ahead of us," he said. "Defensively, we gave them confidence and their defense got jacked up at the way their offense was moving it." Good ISU offense He also praised the technical aspects of ISU's offense. "They did such a good job with the fullback and that's what you've got to do to stop them," he said. "We got it shut down in the second half. But in the first half the key was we didn't get the ball away from them. "They recovered four of their own fumbles and kept the ball away from our offense." he said. Iowa State was the first Nebraska opponent this season that didn't have a turnover. 4 i n v n o ! n El
