Mauer upped the count to 28-7 with a 27-yard touchdown run on a bootleg keeper, but the Whites closed the gap to 28-13 just before halftime on a two-yard plunge by fullback Craig Holman.

While involved in the pursuit, Mathison was leveled on a blindside block by Derrie Nelson, who had an outstanding defensive game. "Fortunately there weren't too many injuries," Osborne said, "although Mathison got a hip pointer and a possible mild concussion from that block and Dan Fischer (defensive back for the Whites) dislocated an elbow." Four plays after the interception, the Reds added three points on Seibel's long field goal - after the drive was flowers. INTERIORS 6105 O ST.

Just before the end of the third quarter, with Quinn making his final appearance of the afternoon, the Reds went 85 yards in just nine plays for their final TD. Quinn started things with a 16-yard pass to Brown and finished the drive by keeping the ball on three straight runs for gains of 21, 12 and the last four for the touchdown.

"We were missing four potential defensive starters (tackle David Clark, comer-back Andy Means, monster Sammy Sims and linebacker Brent Williams), played very basic defense without doing any blitzing, yet did a lot of good hitting," Van Zandt observed. "I thought the No. 1 defensive unit played very welL" It was a show that will provide Big Red fans with plenty of coffee klatch conversation until next fall They left Memorial Stadium itching to see whether the Huskers will fit Osborne's "pretty good" description or McNabb's "awesome" labeL The answer will come in just four months. Kent portrait of Devaney presented A portrait of Nebraska Athletic Director Bob Devaney, to be hung in the north entrance of the Devaney Sports Center, was unveiled and presented at halftime of Saturday's Red-White intrasquad football game. The oil painting, done by artist Cloy Kent of Iowa City, Iowa, was presented by Irving Veitzer, president of the Touchdown Club, and RW. (Hub) Monsky, president of the Nebraska Chapter of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, representing the two organizations which paid for the portrait. The painting pictures Devaney in his coaching uniform, with a whistle around his neck and the ever-present clipboard in his hands. 10 years later, Carl Johnson must have felt like the unknown horseman in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." In the movie, Robert Red-ford and Paul Newman always were asking "Who is that guy?" The same thing happened to Johnson at this weekend's 10th reunion of Nebraska's 1970 national championship football team. "I still can't figure out which one Carl is," quipped quarterback Jerry Tagge. "Carl could try to tell people he was an All-Big Eight tackle, but he'd never convince them," halfback Jeff Kinney said. Johnson is 80 pounds lighter than the 260 pounds he used to move tacklers out of the way for Kinney. Although most of the Huskers' national championship cast is still slim and trim, Johnson is a classic case of "before and after." "He always said he was going to take his weight off as soon as he finished football," Tagge said. "Too bad he waited so long. He would have made a good wide receiver." Johnson settled for being a good businessman. He's the head of the municipal bond department at a large bank in his hometown of Phoenix. Dumler and Decker sounds like a decent name for a law Smith, Wurth win awards Six graduated seniors from last year's Nebraska football team were honored at halftime of the Red-White intrasquad game Saturday. Split end Tim Smith received the Guy Chamberlin Trophy, given to the senior player "who has shown by the play the qualities and dedication to the great Cornhusker tradition." I-back Tim Wurth was named the Tom Novak Trophy winner, given to the Husker player "who best exemplifies courage and determination despite all odds." First-round draft choice tight end Junior Miller was given his Kodak all-American plaque and was named by the Lincoln Optimist Club as last fall's most outstanding offensive lineman. The other Optimist awards went to: Tim Hager, offensive back; Mark LeRoy, defensive back; and Kerry Weinmaster, defensive lineman.

Nebraska defensive back Randee Johnson, who suffered a broken neck in the first Sunday scrimmage of the spring, was on hand for the annual Red-White intrasquad game Saturday. Although he watched the action from a wheelchair and in a restrictive 'halo' cast Johnson is showing remarkable recovery. After the game he walked from the training room to the track under the south stands (a distance of 75-100 yards) aided with just a cane. Randy York firm, but they'd have to combine talents first Doug Dumler, the center on the Huskers' 1970 national championship team, was in Lincoln for the Spring Game. He's an attorney in Sharon, Mass., now. John .Decker, a defensive back, also left his law practice in Saginaw, Mich., to spend a football-reunion weekend in Lincoln. More familiar faces arrived from out of town. Eddie Periard, the active little middle guard, is now a high school football coach in Birch Run, Mich. Donnie McGhee, the mammoth offensive tackle, works for General Motors in Trot-wood, Ohio. Linebacker Bob Terrio is a law officer in Ontario, Calif. Bill Sloey, the other linebacker, sells real estate in Hawthorne, Calif. Two offensive linemen still in the National Football League fit weekend trips to Lincoln into busy schedules. Unlike Johnson, Keith Wort-man, an offensive guard for the St. Louis Cardinals, has added bulk. He now weighs 275 pounds 35 more than his playing days at Nebraska. Bob "Fig" Newton, an offensive guard for the Seattle Sea-hawks, is recovering from major knee surgery involving cartilage and ligament damage. Newton plans to return to pro football, but isnt interested in golf.

Tagge underwent knee surgery last January, but he plans to return to Vancouver later this month for another year in the Canadian Football League. Brownson sells real estate in Omaha. There's a theory that Tagge and Brownson are as much confirmed bachelors as Joe Namath. "I'm no Joe Namath," Tagge insisted. "I have better knees." Brownson is no Namath either. He's just waiting for the next party. The way he figures it, hell be involved in another 10-year reunion next year. Nebraska, of course, also won the national championship in 1971. "Same time, next year" is more than a movie to Tagge and Brownson. It's a battle cry. See Rick . . .
