On Missouri's next possession, Goble had a punt blocked by end Ray Phillips to give the Huskers the ball at the MU 14. Three plays later, Ferragamo hit tight end Brad Jenkins for a 5-yard scoring pass and Coyle converted to make it 10-0 with three minutes left in the first quarter. After an exchange of punts, Missouri took over at it's own 34 and, with the help of a kicking-game error, scored its only touchdown of the game to trail just 10-7 with 6:34 left in the Coyle 30 fg Drive: 66 yards in 17 plays, aided by 15-yard pass Interference penalty which gave Nebraska a first down on the Missouri 37.

But Nebraska lust kept shifting Its line one way or another and the gambling certainly paid off." On Leo Lewis' fumbled punt, which led to Nebraska's second touchdown "Don't fault him. He's caught everything that'd been kicked to him before. A team Is supposed to continue playing football and not let something like that affect them." On tailback Tony Galbreath, who was checked to 34 yards on 15 carries "He's still not at full speed, but he was In the best condition he's been In for several weeks." On intense rivalry "The competition between these two schools Is keen and Missouri just brought out the best In Nebraska today." Split Eod Randy Grossart Former Nebraskan, who caught five passes for 72 yards "My parents (former McCook Junior College football coach Rex and his wife, Pat) were here today (from Chlco, Calif.) and It really hurts to lose. "This game meant more to me than any I've played. I really wanted it bad. But now that It's over, I'd like to see Nebraska beat Oklahoma. "Oklahoma has been up there too long. They need someone to knock them off. I hope we can beat them here In two weeks. Nebraska's got the defense to do It. I think the reason their defense Is so good Is because It's so well coached. It seems like they never make any errors That's why they're unbeaten." Split End Henry Marshall "We have a lot of work to do this week. We've really got to get up for Iowa State the way they played Colorado. I thought we had another touchdown (with 10:33 remaining in the fourth quarter), but Nebraska's defender (Dave Butterfield) lust didn't play it the way we thought he would. He sat back, waited and in the end zone and got the interception on me." Offensive Tackle James Taylor "We could have had this one. We lust weren't consistent enough. I can't say exactly when we let down, but we should have won it." Offensive Tackle Morris Towns "Nebraska's defensive line was good. We could hold them out awhile, but not forever. I thought the protection was good, but the secondary must have had us covered awfully well." 0:15 23-7 No Yds Ave Pisarkiewicz 12 -44 Galbreath 15 36 2.4 Blakeman .2 15 7.5 Brown 9 35 3.8 Grossart .2 0 0.0 Danadill. 1 2 2.0 Stewart. 1 3 3.0 Marx 2 10 5.0 2 10 5.0 Williams 1 4 4.0 Passing No Co Yds PI Pisarkiewicz 27 12 151 1 .10 0 0 Galbreath 10 0 0 Husker Harriers Last 7:38 30-7 Yds 1 1 16 Punt Returns No Stacey 1 Butterfield 4 Burrow 1 Kickoff Returns Pass Receiving Tiger Injuries Sideline Two Gillespie the first half and also failed to return.

If they try to cover him tough when he makes the cut to the outside, he'll turn up-field and has the speed to get behind the defender." "I was worried all week about Missouri coming up with the 'Big Play'. And that Marshall got behind us a couple of times. They lust didn't happen to hook up. He has great speed. The 'Big Plays' are okay when we are pulling them off." Quarterback Vince Ferragamo "Missouri was reading me more than the route of the receivers. Both times, when Bobby made his break to the outside, I pumped as though to throw the ball. This brought them up and made It easier for him to turn on the speed and get behind them for the long pass." "I wasn't very satisfied the way things were going in the first half. I asked coach Osborne for some suggestions as to what might work. It all worked out great." "I've never been on a team that was 8-0 before not even in high school. It's really great to be playing for a winner Defensive Back Dave Butterfield On his Interception In the end zone: "They ran that same pattern earlier but threw it over the receivers head. I thought I was in position to Intercept that one had It been on target. "I had the second one for sure and looked up to see nothing but daylight. If I hadn't stumbled coming out of the end zone I think I could have gone all the way. The guy who caught me was the only tackier around. I'd have been by him if I hadn't stumbled." Defensive Tackle Mike Fultz "We just buckled down and got the fob done. We'd been criticized the last couple of weeks for not getting to the quarterback. Our entire defensive line was determined to get the ob done this time." Defensive end Ray Phillips On his block of a MU punt which led to Nebraska's first touchdown: "It wasn't a 'block' play. We were actually planning a return. But we always rush one guy all the way to the punter and I happened to find an alley and got a hand on It." Split End Bobby Thomas "I felt the defense played a great game. Butterf ield's interception made a big difference. I felt I could blow by the Missouri defender.

Introducing I TIRES half. Stacey Fumbles The Huskers stopped Missouri and forced a Goble punt. But Kurt Stacey fumbled it and Ken Downing recovered at the NU 42. Tony Galbreath, Missouri's leading rusher with a meager 36 yards, scored the touchdown on a one-yard run nine plays later The Tigers, however, were aided by a pass interference penalty against Chuck Jones at the one. The fake punt then made it 16-7 at the half. (See Virgil Parker's description of the play on page 4-D. The third quarter developed into a defensive struggle until Jorgensen's recovery of Lewis' fumble with 22 seconds left in the period. The final touchdown was the only one the Huskers scored that wasn't the result of a kicking game situation. It came at the end of a seven-play, 90-yard drive as Ferragamo used the 'double-pump' pass action and then threw to Thomas, who caught the ball at the 15 over cornerback Bob Fitzgerald and raced untouched into the end zone. Coyle, who converted for the final margin, had a streak of 36 consecutive successful extra points snapped when he missed wide to the right after the fake punt touchdown. He started a new one by hitting two in the se- cond half. Almost lost in the important victory was the performance of the Black Shirt defensive unit which threw Tiger quarterback Steve Pisarkiewicz to losses nine times and intercepted him once. Mizzou Runners Halted The Huskers also contained Missouri's running game, limiting the Tigers to 134 yards on the ground. "I thought Nebraska played defense better than it has all year," MU coach Al Onorfio said. "They were a lot more effective against our running game. Why, I don't know maybe it's because they were playing Missouri. "When they shut off the running game, it affected our whole offensive phase. They were extremely agressive." Pisarkiewicz, the Big Eight's leading passer, completed 12 of 27 for 151 yards and had only one intercepted. It came at the end of the Tigers' deepest penetra-' tion (other than their touchdown) to the NU 8. A touchdown there would have cut the Husker lead to seven or eight points, depending on MU's decision for a one or two point play. But Dave Butter-field nabbed the pass intended for Henry Marshall at the goal and ran it out to the 10. The 61-yard TD pass to Thomas seven plays later sealed the victory. Three-Mao Front Nebraska used a three-man defensive front on most obvious passing situations and had good results. "We felt rather than drop off an end, we would add an extra defensive back," Osborne said. "We just didn't feel Phillips was as agile as Kurt Stacey." The Tigers went into the game I with an average of 11.5 yards on punt returns, but were able to runback only two of Lessman'i seven kicks for seven yards. "O'Leary ended up as the Huskers leading rusher with 70 yards in 10 attempts. I-back Monte Anthony gained 65 in 15 tries. Fullback Tony Davis gained 49 yards, just 11 yards short of tieing Bobby Reynold' record of 2,196 yards second best by a Husker in history. Davis needs 236 yards to become NU's all-time leading ball carrier. Randolph Oldsmobile Co.
