The second half, we knew they were going to pass so we just let loose." Halfback Joe Washington "Anytime you try to defense the wishbone, you can stop one phase of It, but there's always something else that will work. Everybody shut me down pretty good this year. But the others picked It up. The thing that helped us In this game was the fact we've been In some tight spots this year before and had to come from behind to win.

Nebraska hadn't really been in a scrape yet." Offensive Guard Terry Webb "This is the first game we've had against a tough team and played up to our potential. "When you're playing a team like Nebraska, you don't need any psychological lift. I knew we had the game won when there was two seconds left and I was in the middle of the field." Quarterback Steve Davis "If somebody would have told me before the game that we would win 35-10, 1 would have said, 'Dream on, little "Nebraska's defense was Inviting us to run to the short side of the field. Their defensive scheme is to try and protect the wide side because they don't think of it as a threat. They think the short side is protected well enough, but It's not.

We ust do some things to counterbalance it and take advantage of it." Middle Guard Dewey Selmon "Coach Lacewell (defensive coordinator Larry) told us to just forget about Nebraska running In the second half. We put it all on the line. We knew they were going to pass, so we just popped in on them. "When Tony Davis is lined up as Nebraska's only back, they're going to pass nine out of 10 times. It's that simple.

I stopped slanting in the second half and Coach Lacewell let me start working on Rik Bonness one-on-one. It worked." Continued From Page 1C After that, Nebraska didn't threaten, never moving but a yard or two beyond mldfield. The Huskers took the opening kickoff and acted as though they were going to take charge early. Thirteen plays the longest an 11-yard pass from quarterback Vince Ferragamo to wingback Curtis Craig moved the ball 57 yards to the Oklahoma 13. It was the first "Inches" situation when a third-down play left a yard to go.

The Huskers elected to settle for a field goal, but usually reliable Mike Coyle was wide left and Nebraska came up empty handed. Three plays later the Sooners fumbled and corncrback Dave Butterfield pounced on the pigskin at the OU 38. Again the Cornhuskers couldn't capitalize on the break. Ferragamo's third-down pass was picked off by deep-dropping Sooner end Mike Phillips. Oklahoma quickly committed another turnover.

This time Nebraska had a chance to start out just 32 yards away. Again the Huskers couldn't get the ball into the end zone. They settled for a 24-yard Coyle field goal and a 3-0 lead. From then on, Oklahoma made just one more mistake and it led to the Huskers only touchdown. But Nebraska, which led the nation in fewest turnovers in relation to "takeaways" number of times gaining possession on an enemy error proceeded to hand the Sooners numerous golden opportunities.

And coach Barry Switzer'g club capitalized on them. Ferragamo was blind-sided on a safety blitz by OU defensive back Scott Hill late in the first quarter. LeRoy Selmon recovered and Oklahoma drove in for a go-ahead 7-3 lead early in the second stanza. Nebraska made a gallant goal line stand after the Sooners gained a first-and-goal at the one. But here came the "inches" again.

Three times the 'Black1 Shirts' held, but on fourth down OU wishbone quarterback Steve Davis managed to make it. That was the halftime score after Nebraska was kept out of range by a 63-yard Joe Washington quick kick. Oklahoma's only other error came early in the second half a fumble caused by a Jerry Wied tackle, recovered by John Lee. And Nebraska responded by scoring from 32 yards out in nine 2 7 9 3 6 9 3 4 7 plays. I-back Monte Anthony slammed in from one yard out after Ferragamo passes to Tom Heiser (10 yards) and Jerry Mushinskie (13 yards) got the ball close.

The Huskers never threatened after that. Late in the third quarter, Ferragamo coughed up the ball again after a hard tackle by OU's LeRoy Selmon. Davis, a Nebraska nemesis the past three years, who gained over 100 yards rushing for the third straight time, carried on five of the seven plays it took for the Sooners to take the lead for good. Horace Ivory slashed the last five for the touchdown and it was 14-10. Then the roof caved in in the final frame.

The turning point if things hadn't already turned came when NU safety Jim Burrow muffed an OU punt and the Sooners recovered at the Nebraska 13. Three plays later OU's Elvis Peacock tallied and it was 21-10. Two more Nebraska errors followed in rapid succession. Ferragamo was intercepted for the second time and Oklahoma covered 10 short yards in three plays. Davis got his second TD.

We're still a great team. Someone has to win and someone has to lose.

I've never ached inside over a loss more than this one, and I've never seen a team ache more than this team." Wingback Curtis Craig On his Injury "I still don't know what happened. I jumped in the air and the next thing I knew I was laying in the lockerroom. I still feel a little shook up." Fullback Tony Davis While embracing Bob Lingenfelter and other underclassmen "I told those guys not to forget one thing they saw here today. I meant that from the bottom of my heart. I told them to remember the lack of class by the Oklahoma fans and the Oklahoma players.

That's all I want to say. We've still got a hell of a football team. I' hope we get another chance to show people how good we are." Defensive Tackle Jerry Wied "Oil's good. They made first downs by ah inch. In the second half, Steve Davis was going outside and ducking back in for five or six yards.

When we started getting behind, we started trying to force fumbles. But they protected the ball well today and played good ball control." Monster Wonder Monds "There are a lot of guys on the team who would still like to go to a bowl. Right now, I really don't care, but I'll probably change my mind next week." Noseguard John Lee "I still vote not to go to a bowl game. It would be an admittal of what the NCAA and the bowls are doing to us. They shut us out." Center Rik Bonness "It's pretty hard to take.

I haven't even thought about bowls. I might change my mind, though." Nebraska tried some razzle-dazzle which backfired. John O'Leary took the kickoff and came upfield, stopped and threw a cross-field lateral to Bobby Thomas. But Thomas fumbled when hit and Oklahoma owned the ball on the Husker 23. In five plays the Sooners got their final touchwown with just 55 seconds left in the game.

That's when the rest of the air went out of the Huskers' balloon. Now the only question remaining is whether or not they want to try to pump it up again with another game. Briar Cliff Nips Wayne, 62-60 SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP)-A double foul with 1:16 left gave Briar Cliff a center jump and ball control and the Chargers' Mack Jones scored for a 62-60 basketball victory over Wayne Saturday night.

Coach Sullivan declined to single out individual players, noting it was a team effort that got NU to the nationals.
