Tagge, who had given way to Van Brownson midway in the Big E i g h t opener against Missouri, directed an awesome attack which buried Iowa State, 54-29, as Brownson was limited to holding the ball for kicker Paul Rogers because of an ailing elbow. The Cornhuskers had called their assignment here Saturday the "Ames Bowl" and unleashed all the bombs in their scoring arsenal against the game, but outclassed Cyclones. The 54-point spree matched the previous high Cornhusker scoring total in the 65-game series as the devastating attack clicked for a season best of 565 yards in total offense. Tagge riddled the league-leading Iowa State pass defense with 18 completions in 27 attempts for 223 yards and sent Jeff Kinney, Joe Orduna and Dan Schneiss around and through the baffled Cyclones for 342 yards on the ground. Iowa State's upset hopes, dim at half time as the Cyclones were down, 26-11, were crushed in the last eight minutes of the third quarter as Tagge directed masterful drives of 74, 59 and 61 yards in total plays. The Cyclones sandwiched in one score during that explosive stretch, but were completely out of it at 47-14 heading into the final quarter. The Cornhuskers hiked the count to 54-17 late in the fourth quarter before the Cyclones struck for a pair of consolation touchdowns against the Nebraska reserves. . It was a record accomplishment in several areas as the Big Red. Machine hiked its season mark to 8-0-1 and its Big Eight record to 5-0. It was the 16th game without a loss for Tagge Hurls NU to Victory SECTION D, 8 PAGES LINCOLN, NEBRASKA NOV. 8, 1970, PAGE 1 Nebraska, matching the previous high in the Devaney era during the 1963 and 1964 seasons. Joe Orduna was only No. 3 in the Cornhusker rushing column Saturday, but his 69 yards boosted him to No. Tin the Devaney era with a career total of 1,797 yards. He moved past Harry Wilson's old mark of 1,736 on his third carry as the Cornhuskers were beginning their second long touchdown march. The potency of the rushing game was underscored as Kinney rambled for 116 yards in 19 trips to climb to No. 6 on the Devaney-era rushing chart (1,116 yards) and Dan Schneiss bulled for 92 yards on 14 carries to crack the top ten with 819 yards. He moved past Dennis Claridge (742) and Ron Kirkland (808) and Kinney passed Frank Solich (1,071). For the third straight week Rogers had difficulty on his initial extra point attempt as Iowa State's Steve Jacobsen blocked his try. But he finished 6-7 and became the Big Eight's all-time extra point champ with 82 career successes. Kansas' Bill Bell set the old mark of 80 last year. The Cornhuskers established their domination early after Ed Periard had recovered an Iowa State fumble on the Nebraska 27 in the opening minute. Tagge marched the club 74 yards in 18 plays, throwing just three passes, and came right back to direct a 14-play, 66-yard march ,to produce a 12-0 lead. There was 1:33 left in the opening quarter and Iowa State had run just six plays at that point. The defense was tested early in the second quarter as Iowa State gained possession at the Nebraska 41 and again at the 17, the second time when Orduna's fumble was recovered by Obert Tisdale for Iowa State. But the Cyclones netted only three points, settling for a disappointing 39-yard field goal bv Reesie Shoemake. It was a disappointment in the sense that Otto Stowe's nine-yard reverse for a touchdown on the preceding play was wiped out by a holding penalty. Stowe, Iowa State's all-time pass catching leader, was the chief Nebraska nemesis. By the time the afternoon was over he had caught six passes for 63 yards and two touchdowns. The Cornhuskers followed the Iowa State field goal with 76 and 66-yard drives as Tagge was compiling a 10-13 first half. It took a great catch by Stowe on a 33-yard pitch from Dean Carlson in the last minute to keep it from being a runaway by the intermission. Nebraska had some momentary difficulty early in the second half and a 51-yard field goal try by Rogers which fell short broke a string, of six straight three-point successes for the Cornhusker senior. Then the blitz began and Cont. on Page 2D 'Passes 9 Jerry Credit to Line By HAL BROWN Ames, Iowa Nebraska quarterback Jerry Tagge may have been a bit modest as he discussed the job done by the Nebraska offensive line here today, but it was his way of pointing how well those fellows up front were doing their job. "Our offensive line played a tremendous game," Tagge said of the unsung heroes of many a football game. "They were opening big holes and gave our backs a lot of room to run. "On one play, I looked after I handed the ball off and there was a hole I couldn't believe. It went from Bob Newton (tackle) to Doug Dumler (center).

Lampo's Gamble Now Paying Off By RANDY YORK A 27-year-old rookie whose name isn't even listed on the official program assumed the first-round lead Saturday night in the second annual PBA Open tournament at Hollywood Bowl. Gus Lampo, making only his 16th PBA appearance, averaged 223 in 12 games to pace the field. "I always wanted to prove that I was good enough, but I haven't proven anything yet," Lampo said., "Last week I was in fourth place at St. Louis, but fell apart in the last night block and slipped to 22nd. 1 "I've taken a big gamble joining the PBA," the Endicott, N.Y., native added. "I worked for the state highway department as an inspector for eight years, but quit June 1 to join the tour. "I couldn't get a leave of absence because it wasn't for educational reasons," Lampo continued, "but I can be reinstated if I go back. I've always wanted to be a professional bowler so I hope I don't have to go back." Lampo averaged 231 in Saturday's matinee session with a 1,390 six-game block and came back with a 1,280 night sequence. Consistent coaching from roommate Mike Orlovsky, also an Endicott, N.Y., native and a second plage finish in the Bowler's Journal tournament at Knoxville, Tenn. (worth $4,000) helped Lampo make up his mind about the PBA. Rookie Pacing Meet Lampo became the second rookie to lead the Lincoln tournament after the first round. Paul Colwell of Tucson, Ariz., was last year's first-round pacesetter. Back-to-back efforts of 269 and 267 were pivotal games in Lampo's first six-game block. He used big games of 256 and 258 in the night set to offset three sub-200 efforts. Lampo, who has cashed in seven tournaments including the last three, has won only $2,925 oa the tour this year. He bowled a 300 game in his first pro tournament at Seattle last summer, but has made only one final, finishing 11th at Cranston, R.I. Teata Semiz and Bob Strampe were tied for second, 33 pins off the pace. Omaha bowler Larry Phillips averaged 224 in his six-game night block to take fourth place, 39 pins back. Two left-handed bowlers rolled 300 games in the afternoon sessions. Sixth-place Skee Foremsky rolled one in his third matinee effort while fifth-place Wayne Sheridan rolled one in his last afternoon game. The 96 pros resume competition today with separate six-game sessions at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., at which time the field will be cut in half for another six-game block at 7 p.m. to determine the 16 finalists who will compete in match-play games Monday.

Pabis suffered an ankle injury in the win over Iowa State and Brownson is plagued by a sore elbow. Husker head coach Bob Devaney said he would have to delay judgment on the condition of both players for a couple of days. r I fp CI III -v 1 V 1 r -v.v -ps. V- y-Vi 1 ''"' ' V I . mm n-'-- - -- -- 0 COLORPHOTO BY LA VERNE DUEMEY Nebraska's most popular game bird, the pheasant, must be a cautious fellow the next couple of months. Open season on rooster pheasants opened Saturday and continues through Jan. 17. Opening Day Report: Page 6D was big enough that I could have run through it and a hole has got to be big if I can run through it." One Husker, who wasn't surprised by the holes was I-back Jeff Kinney, who observed, "Our offensive line has played great every week. This was nothing new for them." Another back who was pleased with the line blocking was fullback and co-captain Dan Schneiss, who called the line's blocking "outstanding" and added, "Jerry (Tagge) did a good job of calling audiblcs at the line of scrimmage." Tagge added, "Everything I called went. And I think I called every play we had in the book." ' Tagge, like the Husker coaches and his teammates, turned their sights on Kansas . State, next week's foe, as soon as the game ended, but the quarterback from Green Bay, who got the starting nod ; because of Van Brownson's sore elbow, admitted he won't know until later in the week ' whether he'll be the starter against the Wildcats. "It's going to be up to coach Devaney," Tagge pointed out. "He has a tough enough job coaching the team without worrying about trying to keep both Van and myself hap- py- "I'm not going to make his job any harder by saying I want to start next week." Devaney was happy with Tagge's play Saturday, observing Jerry did a fine job. "He threw the ball well and directed the team well," said Devaney. On Brownson's condition, Devaney said he had thought up until the pre-game warmup Saturday that Van could play, but said the sore arm tightened up on him. "We probably could have used him if we had had to," he pointed out. "But we didn't want to take any chances with it. We'il just have, to wait and see how it responds this week." Looking toward Kansas State, Schneiss figured, "They'll be real tough. Lynn Dickey (quarterback) has them on the move and they've started to jell now. "But we just feel we can beat everybody if we play well. We feel we're champions and we're a good pressure team." "Both of our next two games will be real tough," ail-American tackle candidate Bob Newton pointed out. "The season won't mean a thing unless we win the next two. We've just got to get ready this week. "We're going to really have to work. We're not thinking about losing. We want to win the Big Eight, but that's a tough job." "The next two weeks emild be our toughest games," Devaney pointed out. "Kansas State is coming on strong and both they and Oklahoma still have a chance to win or tie for the Big Eight championship." One thing in the Huskers favor in those two games is that they will be. played in Memorial Stadium at Lincoln and one Husker who will be happy to get back on the AstroTurf is Joe Orduna, who Saturday became the top rusher in the Devaney era at Nebraska. "I'll be glad to get back on the AstroTurf," he said referring to the last two games being played on natural grass. "To play on the home grounds and play a decent game again. "AstroTurf is faster, holds better and allows you to start faster and cut faster." Kinney agreed, pointing out, "You can cut better on the AstroTurf. You don't have to slow down to make a cut." Devaney said he wasn't surprised by anything Iowa State threw at the Huskers. "We knew Iowa State could pass," he noted. "And when we get our No. 2 defense in there, we just can't stop people. What it amounts to is that our second team can't play other people's first team, but we're going to continue to play them when we get the chance." Iowa State coach Johnny Majors had little to say after the trouncing, observing, "I think we have a good football team, but Nebraska has a great team. "I have nothing but praise for Nebraska, and no criticism of our team." V
