(AP) Rick Stockstill, who is expected to be the starting quarterback for Florida State next season, guided his Gold team to a 30-10 victory Saturday over the Garnet in the Seminoles' spring game. Nebraska hosts Honda State on Oct. 4 at Memorial Stadium. "Rick Stockstill is the number one quarterback and now it's the job of our coaching staff to figure out who his backup will be," said FSL' Coach Bobby Bowden. Stockstill, a junior from Fer-nandir.a Beach, Fla., took his team 80 yards in 11 plays on the Gold's first possession. Homes Johnson got the touchdown on a 2-yard plunge. The Gold, which led 14-3 at the half, put the game out of reach in the third quarter on a 1-yard run by Blair Williams and a 36-yard field goal by Bill Capece. The teams traded touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Mike Whiting scored on a 17-yard dash for the Garnet and tight end Rick Houston caught a 6-yard scoring toss from Stockstill for the final score. Stockstill hit on nine of 15 passes for 88 yards. Feature Race At Aqueduct Crorovlch 3.80 S40 1 10 Tonltwm 4.60 2 60 Nice Catch 3.00 Yds. 1 Yds. 30 29 Yds.

Nebraska's defensive end goes into a slow motion, right-arm uppercut. Saturday, Nelson's imaginary uppercut looked as familiar as Johnny Carson's imaginary golf swing at the top of his show. The All-Big Eight senior-to-be from Fairmont had reason to celebrate almost every time he was on the field. He stood out like an oasis in the Sandhills, finishing with 12 tackles. Nine were solo and five resulted in losses totaling 32 yards. "I had fun today," Nelson said. "This was more like a game. There were more people. There was more pressure." Nelson's most ferocious hit, however, came on a crackback block of quarterback Bruce Mathison after he threw an interception. "He knocked me completely out," Mathison said. "All I remember is chasing Rodney Lewis and having a perfect angle on him. Derrie came out of nowhere. I don't know how you can get hit any harder. He's out of his mind. "That's good, though," Mathison added. "We need more players like him." Nelson's organized mayhem obviously delights his coaches. "He really doesn't like offensive people," defensive coordinator Lance Van Zandt said. "I really like his attitude of the game." "If Derrie can nail J.C. Watts on a play like he nailed Mathison," defensive end coach George Darlington said, "1 don't think anybody in Nebraska will be crying." Darlington was just as impressed with Nelson's ability to foreclose on runners who came his way. "A reverse, against Derrie," Darlington said, "is a wasted play. That's something you want to run against a younger player." "Everyone of those quarterbacks tried bootlegs on me," Nelson said. "Mauer, Mason and Mathison all tried, but I was ready. I was reading ... and I was ready to hit." Nelson has been in that mood since he first walked on at Nebraska. "That's what I came here Si" : r .... ...J- ' Derrie Nelson for," he said. "That's my philosophy. When you button it up, you can't have any friends, even when you're going against your own teammates." Jimmy Williams, the sophomore starter at Nebraska's other defensive end, said Nelson's mental toughness accentuates his physical tenacity. "You can see he's ready just by looking in his eyes," Williams said. "You look at the films. He pretty much destroys the tight end or tackle on the first play. He sets the mood." Nelson, 6-2, 225 and :04.6 in the 40, also shows leadership. "He's really taken over this spring," Darlington said. "He's been a tremendous example to the younger players." "I have to," Nelson said. "I expect a lot out of them and they expect a lot out of me. I don't go out to hurt anybody, but I go out to play hard. We've had our little wars out on the field this spring, but we leave it there. "That's why I love football at Nebraska. The offense smacks us and we smack them. There aren't any patsies around here. If you're not aggressive, you won't stick around." Nelson may have Ail-American individual goals next season, but they're secondary to his love for the team.

"You're always looking to move up. I suppose I have as good a chance as anybody. But I'm more concerned about playing as a team. When you do that, the honors take care of themselves." It's no secret at Nebraska. The pros already like what they see in Derrie Nelson. "I'm confident, but I'm not overconfident," Nelson said. "I know I have a lot of work to do this summer and I'm going to is set on being a leader in a defensive line that graduated every starter but him. "I know we're young," he said, "but we're fast. People aren't going to mess too much with Jimmy and Toby Williams because they'll run 'em down. "They haven't started," Nelson said, "but they'll grow up in a hurry when they feel that first rush of 76,000. They'll come through." If they do, Nelson's opportunity to practice his imaginary uppercut will increase. "I can't reveal what I call it when I do it," he said. "But you can say I don't do it unless I really dog someone. It started with Billy Sims his junior year. I'd like to do it more often."
