This season Garrett's yardage 1,328 on 243 carries is good enough to lead major college rushers, and he has one game re- maining, a "home contest Saturday against Wyoming. , v- . . i In his career he has set five school records and three in the Pacific Athletic Conference. And 58 yards in his final game will give Garrett the all-time career record, surpassing the 3,166 gained by Ollie Matson in 1949-51 at San Francisco. f At a news conference Tues- , day, Garrett said: "I can thank about 6,00i people for this award, f want to thank my tearm By CURT MOSHER It takes some getting used to, but when you think about it a little there can be, no doubt. Memorial Stadium Thursday will be the site of the biggest game that's ever been played there. And yet the simple truth is there isn't much to say about it. It's all been said a lot of ways and a lot of times. It can all get said when it starts the day after the previous season ends as it did in Dallas last Jan. 2. That's when Nebraska fans began looking ahead, looking, perhaps hoping would be more accurate, towards a situation like this. The coaches and players tried not to. "One at a time," they said. "This week, not next," they said. And perhaps that's why they got this far. The one at a time is ended now. Thursday's the day. As noted in the beginning, it's all been said. D evaney Loses 14 Seniors When retiring Duke coach Bill Murray stepped down this week it came with considerable emotion. He was giving up what he considered the best part of football coaching, his association with the players. He said so, noting the attachment a coach and player develop during their three years together as part of a unit. When a coach retires something like this is emphasized, but it actually happens to a degree to every coach every year. And, while Record Plains Mat Entnr Seen Entry blanks are being mailed out this week for the fourth annual Great Plains AAU wrestling meet scheduled in Lincoln Dec. 10-11. Meet promoter Newt Cop-ple of Lincoln said Wednesday he expects between 250 and 275 entries for the two-day festivities, which would make this meet the biggest yet.

When I was 11 years old, I saw Hopalong Cassady play for Ohio State in the Rose Bowl, and ever since then I've wanted to follow and play as well as he did that day." ' Garrett, asked about the possibility of professional football, replied: "I was concentrating so much on this season I haven't really thought about You know that Oklahoma is the final stumbling block to a perfect season, just as you know that if the Corn-huskers can pull it off it will be the first time a Nebraska team has gone clean in 50 years. You even know about Jumbo Stiehm ' and Guy Chamberlain and the great names out of the past who engineered that football dream of an unbeaten season in 1915. There can't be many who don't already know that the guy they introduce at Extra Point. Club each week as "the finest football coach in the country" has never had a perfect season in collegiate coaching. He has had one, however, but that goes back to 1946 at Alpena, Mich., High School. You remember, too, that the only other time NU coach Bob Devaney barged into game 10 with a shot at the whole bundle was one year ago when this same " ' ' . A Coach Gets Attached some coaches may use the I and some the T and some others something else, they all agree on the importance of this association. There's still a bowl game to be played for Nebraska, but for the regular season there will be 14 seniors walking the graduation plank. Few senior football players have enjoyed so much over-all team success in their careers and, for a few of them, tremendous individual laurels. Here's a capsule comment from Cornhusker coach Bob Devaney on those who will Irish Shackled Huskers Assume U.S. Scoring New York UP) Michigan State's great defensive effort against Notre Dame not only solidified the Spartans' position among the nation' smajor college defense leaders, it shook up the offense standings as well.- State,.-the nation's leader in rushing defense and second- ranked in total defense, held Notre Dame to minus 12 yards running. This effort removed Notre Dame as a threat to rushing leader Nebraska by dropping the Fighting Irish from second to night. Notre Dame's failure to score a touchdown against the Spartans dropped it from first to fifth in the s c o r 1 n g race. Nebraska now Is the leader. Statistics released Wednesday by the National Collegiate Athletic Bureau showed that the Spartans' effort against Notre Dame's running was the Wednesday Local Hassling Pershing Auditor- ium, 8:30 p.m. (7s Thursday Rassling 10:15 p.m. (7).

An outfielder on the Trojan baseball team, Garrett was drafted 11th by the Pittsburgh- Pirates. USC Coach Rod Dedeaux says the .300 hitter has major league potential. Whatever he decides, Garrett said he will apply the same approach. "I just try to be good in whatever I do," he said. Garrett, his parents, Coach McKay and USC President Norman Topping will go to' New York next Wednesday for presentation of the award Thursday at the Downtown Athletic Club. jJiwnml PAGE 9 LINCOLN, NEBRASKA WEDNESDAY, NOV. 24, 1965-P.M. Oklahoma team disiied out a 17-7 licking down in Norman. Going back to high school agan, Devaney had one other chance at one other unbeaten team. But in that one, too, disaster struck on the road, this one in Ham-tramck, Mich. So for the first time there is an opportunity to take that final step on friendly soil, here in Lincoln and not Hamtramck or Norman or someplace else. be playing their final home game Thursday against Oklahoma: Larry Casey "He's given us 100 per cent effort h i s three years as a member of the varsity squad, and except for an exceptional situation at end would have been a starter." Tony Jeter "Tony's the finest blocking end I've ever coached." Jim Brown "One of t h e most improved players on the squad.' He's always had an excellent attitude." Dennis Carlson "Dennis is certainly one of the top Lead finest by one major team against another in four years. State's rushing allowance of just 45.6 yards a game this season also has been bettered only once in 18 years Syracuse allowed opponents only 19.3 yards a game in 1959. The statistics also revealed Tulsa leading in total offense and forward passing, Southern Mississippi first in total defense, Toledo first in pass de fense and Texas No. 1 in punt ing. Mike Garrett of Southern California has clinched the in dividual rushing crown with 1,328 yards in 243 carries and needs just 58 more yards against Wyoming Saturday to break Ollie Matson's career record of 3,166. Missouri's Charlie Brown is 10th in rushing with 937 yards Tulsa's Howard Twilley has won the pass-receiving title with 115 catches. He must score four points against Col orado State Thursday to be come the first end to win the scoring crown. He has 111 points to 114 for Syracuse's Floyd Little, who is through. Other leaders are Stan ford's Dave Lewis, punting; Larry Wachholtz of Nebraska, punt returns (29 for 442 yards); Eric Crabtree of Pitts burgh, kickoff returns, and Maryland s Bob Sullivan, in terceptions.

It'll all start at 12:45 p.m., about the same time a lot of folks are reaching for a big dumstick. But Devaney and some 53,000 fans in Memorial Stadium will ask for the wish bone, a wish that the H u s k e r magic which has survived three close calls in Colorado Springs, Columbia and Stillwater can survive again. They'll be hoping, too, that there can be no repeat of circumstances such as there were a year ago when an Oklahoma team, which had played below expectations most of the season, pulled themselves together for that one mighty effort. Certainly, the odds are against it. Carl McAdams, the Sooners' best football player, may not play. The offensive tackles in the Big Eight Conference." Freeman White "Freeman has been a tremendous threat as a pass receiver the last two years." Fred Duda "Fred made a great comeback against almost insurmountable odds." Co-Captain Frank Solich "He's the quickest back I've ever coached. . . always a break-away threat." Bill Haug-"Had he n o t been injured, Bill would have been a strong candidate for all-conference honors." Duncan Drum "Duncan's a boy who has contributed to our success the last three years both on offense and defense and as a kicker." John Strohmyer "The outstanding lineman in the 1964 Cotton Bowl game. He was hampered by injuries the early part of this season but he's made a strong comeback." Walter Barnes "Walt's the most outstanding defensive lineman we've had since coming to Nebraska." Ted Vactor "An all-conference defensive back in 1964, Ted's a fine tackier, who has been slowed down since he had his knee operation." Bill Johnson "A fine defensive halfback in 1964 who took over the defensive fullback position and is one of the top tacklers on the squad." Co-captain Mike Kennedy "A great leader and a fine linebacker." WALT BARNES Tackle TED VACTOR Back Grahowski, Brown, Yearby Repeaters Chicago W) Jim Grabow-ski of Illinois, Aaron Brown of Minnesota and Bill Yearby of Michigan were the only repeaters on All-Big Ten defensive and offensive teams named Tuesday by the Associated Press. Voting was the closest in years for the quarterback spot and Steve Juday of the No. 1 ranked, Rose Bowl-bound Michigan State Spartans barely edged Purdue's Bob Griese. The only unanimous choices were fullback Grabowski, who shattered Illinois and conference rushing records; .fast, hard-running halfback Clinton Jones of MSU and George Webster, the roving monster who sealed MSU's defensive greatness. Otiicrs on the No. 1 offensive team are ends Bob Hadrick of Purdue, and Gene Wash great senior linebacker hat been hobbled for two weeks. And another big threat, swift Ben Hart, will not be at full speed. Nebraska, has its problems, too, losing improved junior defensive back Kaye Carstens who has started all nine games. But everyone else will play and Lang-ston Coleman could be at full speed for the first time in four games, the defensive whiz showing some of his old form at times in practice. That's about it, a 9-0 team needing one more and a 3-5 team needing one like this to heal a lot of wounds. It will be something to see as unbeaten opportunities come seldom. What does Devaney think of all of this? "It would be nice," he says, perhaps remembering back to that rare day in Alpena when he went all the way. - " BILL JOHNSON MIKE KENNEDY Back Linebacker JIM BROWN Taekle DUNCAN DRUM Center DENNIS CARLSON FREEMAN WHITE Tackle End ington, MSU; tackles Tom Mack, Michigan, Karl Singer, Purdue; guards John Niland, Iowa, Doug Van Horn, Ohio State; center Larry Kaminski, Purdue; halfback Carl Ward, Michigan: Rounding out of the defensive line-up are end Bubba Smith, MSU; tackle Jerry Shay, Purdue; linebackers Dwight Kelley, Ohio State; Don Hansen, Illinois, and Ron Goovert, MSU; backs Rich Volk, Michigan, John Fill, Ohio State, and Ron Acks, Illinois.
