It was the same way today. "It has been a real privilege for me to play before the fans here and even more of a privilege to play on this type of a team. If I had to do it all over again, I would do It lust the same way." Tight End-Wingback Rick Panneton On being able to see extended action and make several big plays: "It feels lust great. I got the opportunities to catch the ball today." On seeing action at the wingback spot: "When I came to Nebraska as a lunlor college transfer, I was a wingback. They made me into a tight end right away. Then I tore a cartilage in my knee and I was red shirted. I had been working at both positions but today was the first time I have had the chance to run with the ball." "The ball was in there really good every time. It was put in there at just the right time. I think even our offensive line could have caught those passes." Monster Kent Smith On his pass interception: "We were in a defense In which I just drop back into the deep area. I thought It was in the receiver's hands but it was just a little bit off and it ended up in my hands." On the offensive pass interference call that cancelled an apparent Iowa State touchdown: "I kind of bumped him (the Cyclone receiver) but they didn't call that. Then he stuck out his hand and shoved me." Quarterback Vince Ferragamo On directing the Nebraska offense: "Their defenses dictated quite a bit of audible calling. When their defense started doing that, it made it pretty easy to check off at the line of scrimmage. They would shift their linebackers and sometimes they would bluff a blitz. We would audible out of that play we were In and we nad good plays In our offensive system that would work." On his long pass completion to Bobby Thomas that covered 46 yards: "I hung the ball up a little bit. It was un-derthrown but Bobby did a good ob of coming back ana jumping up for the ball." "We've got to beat Oklahoma next week and I feel confident there won't be any letting up for that game." Wingback Curtis Craig On playing a team for his home state of Iowa: "I was ready. Naturally, It was easy to get up for a game against a team from your home state. I was ready and everyone else was too." On his touchdown reception in the first quarter: "The Iowa State defense shifted over and Vince saw it and audibled out of the play we were in and I was open. I just concentrated on catching the ball and getting into the end-zone." On the third quarter, Terry Luck pass that he had but dropped: "I think I could have gone on for another one (touchdown). I was just kind of excited and I took my eyes off the ball." IW 10 03 1 NIGHT $36.50 for 2 1 RIB en 03 O ro JAN LANE Individual Statistics Pass Interceptions ....

There was 5:38 to play, but the lead held up only 1:18 before Washington's game breaking plays. Gibbons also failed on a 40-yard field goal with 1:02 to play and missed from 53 yards out on the final play of the game. "Field goals blocked and missed were the difference today," Switzer said. "Our offense played well except for penalties which hurt us in the second and third quarters. "Our defense played well at times and Missouri at times was able to convert third and long that made it the kind of game it was. The fans sure got their money's worth today." Defense Different Switzer said the Sooners, concerned about Pisarkiewicz' passing, played a different defense. "We felt we had to rush him," he said. The Sooners sacked him eight times for 43 yards. Switzer looked ahead to next Saturday's Big Eight Conference showdown with Nebraska in Norman. "Nebraska got its share of the title today," he said. "Our objective now is to get the other share next week." o CM o Wlngender, Green Isler Tryon 2 NIGHTS $55.00 for 2 CO o o "In o o CO - 4481 CM ,;A,JiJ -Visitors' Views Compiled by Chuck Sinclair - Halfback Jim Wlngender Graduate of Omaha Crelghton Prep High School returned to Nebraska for the third unsuccessful attempt to beat his homt state team: "It's real frustrating to come back here and not play particularly well. This Is the third time I've faced Nebraska ( In five years) and we haven't played well In any of those games. "Last year when we played Nebraska, I was a regular at fullback up until that game and only played one series. So I was just happy to have the chance to day." The conference's second leading rusher commented on Nebraska's blackshirt defense: "I think overall Nebraska has the best defense we've faced this year. For the main reason that they cover a bigger area of the field than anyone else. Everyone hits hard In this league, but no one covers so much ground to do it." Quarterback Buddy Hardeman On dislocation of his thumb in the first quarter: "It's never looked like that before and I didn't like the way It looked from the start. It (the thumb) was stubborn and they had to put It to sleep before they could get It back In place." "We were going to score when I got hurt and we lust stalled out. Nebraska's defense was good, but I still thought we would score." After a broken wrist earlier and now the dislocation, Hardeman has learned to play with pain: "I just like to play so much that I don't let them (the injuries) bother me. I missed last year because of injuries and I didn't want to miss another one." Defensive Back Tony Hawkins "Nebraska's passing attack was as good as any I've seen. Their receivers are good and the quarterbacks, both of them, are good. But that Ferragamo can really throw the ball." On the touchdown pass when Bobby Thomas burned Hawkins on a down out and down pattern stopping Hawkins In his tracks." "I was completely caught by surprise. He (Thomas) ran a good route. He's a good receiver, and once he was by me, I knew there was no use in following him to the end zone." Defensive Back Jerry Jaksich "I was disappointed not only in the outcome, but the individual performance I had." A graduate of Omaha Gross, Jaksich was inured in the first half after a collision with John O'Leary: "I just got blind-sided and saw a few stars. The next play I was in, I got hit again. They hit awfully hard." Head Coach Earle Bruce On tlie offensive interference call in the end zone against solit end Forry Smith in the third quarter: "I thought it was a touchdown. That's what the official told me. I thought he had caught the ball, but I guess he dropped it. Of course, it hurt because it was a touchback and Nebraska got the ball on the 20." On his team's morale after five straight losses: "You can still have good morale when you play good football teams and get beat. But, 52-to-nothing . . .1 don't know. I know how they feel, but we've got to come back and be ready next week." On Nebraska's offensive variety: "What talent. You don't find many better power runners than Anthony and Davis. O'Leary can trick you and Craig and Thomas make the big plays. Put Ferragamo with all of them and you've got more than a big, strong, quick combination. You have an offense which can devestate you." On the Cornhuskers' lack of mistakes: "Field position and no mistakes. That's their game. I think they fumbled twice and fell on them both real quick. The other team doesn't get much chance." : 24 YOi clean up the Big 8...

THIS OFFER 1 GOOD THROUGH November 16, 1975, Lincoln, Neb., Sunday Journal and Star 3D Early Scoring Spree Sparks Cornhusker Rout Continued From Page ID The Texas-Texas A&M loser (the winner is the Cotton Bowl host) would appear to be the only other possibility IF "The Bear" is calling the shots. If that were the case, the Oklahoma-Nebraska loser could be out in the cold. The subject of bowl possibilities is sure to dominate coffee klatch conversations in the Cornhusker State all week. Oklahoma will be a more important subject for the Nebraska coaches and players. They didn't waste much time rehashing the runaway against Iowa State. The sunbaked crowd of 76,131 hardly had time to settle in their seats before the Huskers grabbed a 7-0 lead. ISU's Ray Hardee fumbled the opening kickoff after a bruising tackle by Jeff Hansen and Ted Harvey recovered at the Cyclone 21. low an Scores First it was Tony Davis and Monte Anthony up the middle to get the ball to the eight yard line from where Curtis Craig an Iowan from Davenport scooted in for the touchdown. Mike Coyle kicked the first of seven points he also had a 39-yard field goal in the second quarter and it was 7-0 after just one minute and three seconds of play. Craig tallied the second Husker TD on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Vince Ferragamo to climax a 73-yard march, aided by a 15-yard penalty against an Iowa State assistant coach who ran on the field to "help'' the officials. Four plays into the second quarter the Huskers added another on a Ferragamo quarterback sneak. That drive went 62 yards. Coyle's field goal - a line drive knuckler came after a Kent Smith pass interception and a Ferragamo to Bobby Thomas pass good for 46 yards. Three Iowa State plays and a punt later Nebraska drove to its up 11 mi, I, I,, i,.,-,, , THE 1975 OKLAHOMA GAME! At All Locations 1124 L Streets 21st & C Streets Or call a bonded routeman at 432-2757 7 final touchdown of the first half. Craig ran for 11 yards and caught a Ferragamo pass for 18 more before Thomas completely fooled an Iowa State defender to find himself all alone in the end zone to gather in a 26-yard toss from Ferragamo for the TD and a 31-0 halftime bulge. Luck Takes Over Terry Luck took over the Nebraska controls to open the second half. The first possession fizzled when two of his on-target passes were dropped. But the next time Luck mixed a variety of running plays John O'Leary had runs of 12 and 11 yards - to move the Huskers 45 yards in seven plays to run the count to 38-0. Iowa State then mustered its only real threat of the day. A 36-yard ISU pass into the end zone was aimed at split end Forry Smith. But, in order to make the catch, he pushed Husker defender Kent Smith away and was flagged for offensive pass interference. It's an unusual circumstance to arise yet happened in a Husker game twice this year. A similar play nullified an apparent Oklahoma State touchdown at Stillwater. The offended team Nebraska had the choice of having Iowa State penalized 15 yards or taking a touchback and the ball at the 20. The reasoning is that Nebraska's Smith could have intercepted had he not been pushed which would have been a touchback. Nebraskas then proceeded to march 80 yards for still another score. Luck completed three aerials along the way - 12 yards to Dave Shamblin, seven more to Chuck Malito and a big 25-yarder to Rick Panneton. The last one gained the ISU two from where Dave Gillespie rammed in to make it 45-0. Gillespie also tallied the final TD from two yards out. That 206 Lincoln Gateway Winthrop Rd. & Ryons drive covered 64 yards and was highlighted by another Luck-Panneton pass (20 yards) and a 10-yard run by Panneton, who is normally a tight end but lined up at wingback for his scamper. Randy Garcia finished up at quarterback for the Huskers and was a perfect 2-2 on his passing before time ran out with Nebraska on the ISU 18. Some of the biggest cheers of the day came late in the game when word spread through the stands that Missouri was leading Oklahoma. Those later turned to groans. Though Nebraska earned at least a tie for the Big Eight championship with the triumph over Iowa State, it'll be just like 1971 all over again in Norman next Saturday CLEARANCE RADIAL Biems t j" U AR78xl3BFGww DR78xl4 BFG ww 1 AR78xl5BFG ww EHBXD tru WW ANY SIZE BOX 1 ER70xl4BFGwwl FDTOvi i per. ,u .u li V I c VI V VYWT 2GR78xl4BFGww GR78xl5 BFG ww Any size box 2 Li HR78xl4 BFGwwM JR78xl5BFGww 3lR78xl5BFGww " ANY SIZE BOX 3 POLY CORD OR NYLON FIRSTS G78xl4BFG Blk H78xl5 0Kww 4 G78xl5 0Kww 178x15 OK ww ANY SIZE BOX 4 4 00 Plus FET 1.76-3.16 RADIAL SNOWS STEEL ER78x 14 OK First 5R78xl40KRrst UKex 14 Brb Klem GR78xl5BFG Blem HR78xl4 BFG Blem KR78x15 OK First LR78xl5 OK First ANY SIZE BOX 5 Plus FET 2.25-3.46 SNOWS POLY or NYLON F78xl4BFGww G78xl4 BFG ww G78xl5 BFG ww H78x150Xww ANY SIZE BOX 6 6 oo lus m IM Exchange Your Tir 4 J ER70xl4 RFC, ww'L 34 r lap M Plus FET W, i If 1.93-3 1 1 v. 1 iitOO i i r fillip 2400 "0" 4324497 13th & South 4774741 1150 No. 48 467-3561 ftiirimr n ini.iixniiiiii.Hi'. w w w w
