4D September 17, 1978 Lincoln, Neb., Sunday Journal and Star Huskers- From PaoelD rerespectable, but it was out of hand long before the native musicians got a chance to entertain at halftime. The hua dancers could shake a lot, but they couldn't shake off some embarrassing statistics compiled by their team in the first 30 minutes. The Rainbows were in over their head and it showed 15-5 in first downs, 166 to 34 in yards rushing and 140 to 63 in yards passing. By the time the final gun sounded and Nebraska's band had gone intotheir post-game serenade of "Blue Hawaii" the Rainbows were on the short end of a 31-14 count of first downs and a 599-232 total offense figure. Husker Head Coach Tom Osborne took some pleasure in sneaking a look at the final statistics. "I'm pleased," he said. "This is the best we've looked to date and improvement is what we're looking for. It's important to have a game like this, relatively free of mistakes. I don't think Hawaii has a bad football team. If we had made mistakes early, we could have had a game very -similar to the California game last week." The Huskers, however, had the Rainbows scouted too well for many bad things to happen. Quarterback Tom Sorley, grinning typically after a 9-for-ll, 133-yard passing performance, took some time to reflect on the ease with which Nebraska handled the Rainbows before he put some chewing tobacco in his cheek. "Hawaii shifted their defense just like we wanted them to shift it," Sorley said. "Every time we wanted to run a trap, we could. It was as if Coach Osborne and the press box were psychic. We needed this to build up our confidence." No one, though, needed it worse than senior split end Frank Lockett. A highly touted receiver and return man, the former junior college AU-American has endured a bad rap he's never caught a pass in varsity competition. Until Saturday, that is. Lockett made his first catch a memorable one. 'Five minutes before halftime, he ran under a perfect strike from Sorley and turned it into a 39-yard touchdown. "All week, Coach Osborne and Coach (Jerry) Moore have been teasing me about that first catch," Lockett said with a grin. "Coach Osborne asked me if I, wanted a short one or a long one. They knew it was time for me to get into the book. I thought as long as it was supposed to be my day, I'd take a long one." Just for good measure, Lockett caught two more passes and finished as the day's leading receiver with three catches for 72 yards. Wingback Tim McCrady caught five for 58 yards in his impressive season debut before suffering a shoulder separation (See Mike Babcock's story). The game never got dull to the players, but the fans, had problems sustaining their interest. At one point in the second half, they threw soft drink cups to each other to keep themselves busy. They were seeing what they wanted and, quite frankly, getting bored with it. But the sidelines of the winning Jeam and its post-game locker room never for . a minute hinted at boredom. In fact, there was a rare standing ovation and outpouring of emotion when team captains Sorley and George Andrews, who also happened to receive Player of the Game awards, gave the game ball to Budge Porter. Porter, a former Husker defensive back who has been confined to a wheelchair since a practice injury in 1976, was an honorary captain for this game. He went to midfield for the coin flip and cradled another game ball to go with one he received two years ago for Miami. "This team," Porter said, "is a great bunch of guys and they have a tremendous coaching staff. Nebraska Is the greatest place in the United States to play football and it bothers me to hear them criticized. I'm just glad everyone got to play because they all deserve it." , Nebraska's football program is built around quality like Budge Porter. Hell never forget his former teammates and obviously, they won't forget him, either. ' Texas hits Rice, 34-0 HOUSTON (UPI) - Seventh-ranked Texas piled up 27 points in the first half on two long scoring passes to Johnny "Lam" Jones and the effective running of LeRoy King Saturday night, and the Longhorns stymied the Rice Owls for a 34-0 victory in a Southwest Conference game. Rice. 0-2, was unable to penetrate Texas' 15-yard-line and the Owls gained only 95 total yards, minus 36 rushing, against a defense led by linebacker Lance Taylor, end Tim Campbell and safety Johnnie Johnson. The Texas defense, fifth in the nation in yards allowed last year, put up a touchdown itself after Texas' offense became sluggish in the second half. Campbell caught a tipped Rice pass in the Owls' end zone to score the Longhorns' final touchdown.

N.C. (AP) -Bruising halfback Ted Brown ran for 198 yards and one touchdown Saturday, sparking North Carolina State to a 27-19 victory over Syracuse in a regionally televised game. Brown, a 199-pound senior, scored on an eight-yard run in the opening period and pushed his career rushing total to 3,574. He became the NCAA's 15th leading career rusher, surpassing former Southern Cal halfback Ricky Bell. Halfback Billy Ray Vickers scored twice on runs of 17 yards in the second quarter and 6 yards in the final period and sophomore Nathan Ritter booted field goals of 33 and 37 yards for the Wolfpack, 2-0. Senior Dave Jacobs hit field goals of 40, 38 and 32 yards in the second quarter and 45 yards in the third period for Syracuse, which capitalized on Wolfpack mistakes to keep the game close. The Orangemen fell to 0-2 on the season. Sophomore quarterback Tim Wilson, filling in for injured wiiliam Hurley teamed up with halfback Art Monk on a 59-yard pass play in the second quarter for the Orangemens other score. North Carolina State spurted to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter as Ritter got his first field goal 33 yards out after the Wolfpack had marched from its 22 with the opening kickoff. Wilson fumbled on Syracuse's second play from scrimmage, and safety Mike Nail recovered at the 32-yard line and Brown burst up the middle from eight yards away for his touchdown. The Orangemen cashed in on N.C. State mistakes and scored on their next two possessions to pull even at 10-10. After the Wolfpack had used two 15-yard penalties to move to the Syracuse 30, running back Mike McLean fumbled and Bob Tate recovered at the 29. Svroruse 0 li 3 O-l N.C.

I came up with the ball and I was iust laying there when a flag hit me. The ref said '93 you're out of the game.' That was it. I don't know why, and I never found out why I was kicked out. I was mad, but I couldn't say anything. I think the coaches will wait until they look at the films before they chew me out." Defensive end Dan Lindstrom On the Pensick's fumble recovery: "I don't know exactly who got it. There was a big pile, the ball was free, and everybody was going for it. It was a mad rush; I couldn't believe it. Everybody was lust fighting for the ball, and there must have been four hands on it." Quarterback Tim Hager On his passing success: "We iust went to the quick out passes because their defensive backs were coming on so quick. That kind of pass is easy to complete with good blocking and good receivers. On playing: "This was the first game I've really been in since my freshman year, against Iowa State. I was happy I didn't cause any maior turnovers and didn't have any maior mistakes. The only thing that mode me a little nervous was Hawaii switching after I'd call set on every play. A couple of completions really boost the confidence." Quarterback Tom Sorley "I don't think I even got touched today. A quarterback should complete a pass under those circumstances. On Hawaii's defensive stunts: "We were able to pick up most of them and we were prepared for anything they did. It was really a matter of deciding, not which play, but which side to run the plav to." On NU's receivers: "This is the best group of receivers we've had. They all read the defense as well as I can and they run their patterns well. No one can question their ability to catch a ball." Wingback Ken Brown On 52 yard punt return for touchdown: "The punt was a low line drive, but they didn't come after me too fast. I was on the run and the play was set up to the right. It was so well blocked, I was able to cut back to the inside about the 20 yard line and I wasn't touched." About Nebraska's successful passing to wingbacks: "The opportunity to pass on the quick outs was there because we were able to get behind their defensive backs. They iust came on too fast, and with the 5-2 defense that leaves the short quick outs and the crossing patterns open." On new play that put NU on Hawaii's 13 early in first quarter: "When the play was called (41-pitch, halfback pass) I was pretty excited. Sorley gives the ball to Hipp, Hipp gives it back to Sorley, and he passes it to me. We had the same kind of thing last week, only it was from the l-formotion. This was from the pro-set." Tailback I.M. Hipp On his injury: "It wasn't anything. They just took an x-ray of my right wrist but It's okay. About his performance: "I had iust 12 carries and got 70 yards. But the great thing was everybody got some time to play. A lot of people think I worry about the yardage thing. But I'd rather everybody got to play and we get to win." Linebacker Brent Williams About his block on Craig Roberts: "He didn't see me until I hit him; I was right In his face. I'm the lead man coming down on the wall, and he was the first one I saw. My job Is to pick out a man, and he was a threat for Kenny (Brown), so I had to get him out of the way. It felt great, and I made sure I got my head and shoulders on the inside so I knew it wasn't a clip." About blocking and tackling: "I'd rather it would have been a hit on a ball carrier, but that seemed to fire us up pretty good itself."

(AP) Arkansas freshman Thomas Brown zipped 96 yards with a kickoff return that deflated Vanderbilt and assured the second-ranked Razorbacks of a 48-17 victory in the season opener for both teams Saturday night. Arkansas grabbed a 24-0 lead five minutes into the third quarter, but Vanderbilt, a 25-point underdog, came roaring back. The Commodores reeled off 17 points in slightly more than five minutes and had momentum. . Brown's kickoff return halted that moments later and made a stadium record crowd of 55,718 much more comfortable. Brown, who played high school football at Montgomery, Ala., fielded the kickoff on his 4, exploded into the open at the Arkansas 35 and ran past the final defender. Vanderbuilt ran three plays and punted. Four plays later, No. 2 quarterback Kevin Scan-Ion hooked up with Robert Far-rell on a 21-yard pass play. It was the second scoring pass of the game for Scanlon, who also scored once and appeared sharper than No. 1 quarterback Ron Calcagni. Scanlon was recruited by Arkansas Coach Luu Holtz when lloltz was at North Carolina State.

Hawaii 0 0 10 0 10 Nebraska . 7 28 7 14 56 Individual Stats Visitors' views By Wayne Gonyea Quarterback Jeff Duva On playing Nebraska: "I personally look forward to it because it's always a thrill to play a team like Nebraska. We are new and our program is building. Schedule-wise, we are not ready to compete against teams like Nebraska and Southern Cal (Hawaii's final game opponent) but we will be pretty soon. "It is really hard for us to travel. It takes an eight-hour plane ride iust to get here and we lose five hours in time. That's no excuse, but it Is hard for us to travel. "Today we iust lost our poise out there. I thought we did a real good iob up until 10 minutes before halftime. I felt we could play with them." On Nebraska's pass defense: "I have a lot of respect for Nebraska's defense and their secondary, but I feel we have a good passing attack and can pass against anybody. When we first had the ball I thought we were doing a pretty good lob of keeping them (NU's pass rushers) away from me. But then they started getting to me. Anytime you have an effective pass rush it puts a lot of pressure on the passer. They did a real good iob, I have to give them credit." Wide Receiver Wayne Black On his third quarter touchdown pass: "It was iust a regular out pattern. They-were in a man coverage and It was kind of easy to burn them." On Nebraska's defensive secondary: "Nebraska's secondary is kind of slow. I think they rely on the defensive line to put a lot of pressure on the quarterback. They are good, but I don't think they are that great. They are kind of slow." On playing Nebraska: "Now we know they are a better team. It gives us a chance to see how we could do. Going into the game most of us felt we could win. When we go up against USC everybody will feel we can win that game. I felt If we could do seme things right we could win the game. We were iust waiting for the right things to happen, but it just didn't. We iust made crucial mistakes. You iust learn and keep on going." Offensive guard Greg McElroy On playing Nebraska: "Nebraska has good players, the best we have played against. They are all iust super athletes and they run their assignments very well. They are well disciplined and don't make very many mistakes. "We expected to come here and win, and for a while there it was a good ball game until we started to make mistakes. But we can't let a loss like this affect us. We. have to have nine more good ones." Defensive End Craig Roberts On playing Nebraska : "It's a good experience because you learn a lot. I have four years left to go asnd I am glad to get to play against them. I hope it will improve me." On the crushing block applied by NU's Brent Williams on a Kenny Brown punt return with 6:18 left In the second quarter: "He really hit me good. It was a blind side and I didn't see it coming because I had my eye on the ball carrier. He got me in the belly and knocked the win out of me." Fullback WilbertHasllp "Nebraska Is well disciplined and well coached. They hit hard and never stop coming at you. Nebraska is a big school, and you can get psyched on it if vou don't watch youself. We lost our poise iust before halftime, then came out and played a pretty good second half. Our mistakes killed us. The guys didn't get down, but it changes things." Freshman kicker Peter Kim On his 49-yard field goal: "It was my first college field goal. I have been kicking that long In practice, but this was the longest field goal I have ever kicked in my life. When I got on the field I saw I had a little wind and I thought it didn't look too far. I knew I iust had to keep my head down and follow through, and I had good con tact with tne Dan."
