"When you're sitting on the bench, the game's a lot slower," said Nebraska's starting I-back, who spent the majority of Saturday's 70-21 victory against Pacific wrapped in a cape on the NU sidelines. "We had a lot more depth and talent. It was big school against small school." Phillips, one of five different Cornhuskers to run for a touchdown, made the most of his time on the field. The sophomore from West Covina, Calif., gained 138 yards on just nine carries. That's an average of 15.3 yards per attempt. "I got a pretty good workout today," he said. He was about the only Nebraska starter who did. Quarterback Tommie Frazier played nine snaps, driving the Cornhuskers to two touchdowns before leaving the game for good. "It was hardly worth changing my clothes," said Frazier, who was nursing a sore calf muscle. "All I was able to do was cheer for the other players because I knew I wasnt going in. When you're on the sidelines when the game is out of hand, all you do is sit around and joke with the other players on the sidelines." While he was in the game, Frazier completed 1 of 2 passes for 26 yards. But while he sat bundled . it i; t. ; "A i t v f n GAM.
