Benson actually scooped up the loose ball and ran 23 yards for an ap-parent touchdown.

However, O'Donnell's miscue was ruled a muff, rather than a fumble, therefore couldn't be advanced. The scent of victory grew even stronger for the Chiefs a few minutes later, when Scott Griffin hurried Augustana punter Rick Whipple, whose frantic kick traveled just three yards beyond the line of scrimmage. Morningside, taking over at the Augustana 30, picked up seven yards on a first-down carry by senior fullback Rob Niemeyer, who backed up Yancy with 82 yards on 11 carries. did the rest, carrying six straight times before bolting over right tackle for a six-yard touchdown. Chris Hogzett's PAT kick made it 24-14 with 2:14 left in the third quarter.

The defense took it from there, holding Augustana in its own territory on all nine second-half possessions for the Vikings. good measure, Al Randolph flipped a 12-yard scoring pass to Niemeyer on a fourth-down try with 4:19 left in the game. Scott Kerkhoff, alternating with Niemeyer at-fullback, thundered 37 yards a few plays earlier to set up the final score. The game began quite peculiarly. Twice in the first 3:13, freshman punt snapper Kelly Scholten of Augustana sent the ball sailing over the head of Whipple and both miscues went for safeties.

The first safety happened after Whipple, punting from his 38, retrieved the errant snap and retreated to his end zone, where he slipped on wet grass. The second two-pointer came after Pease, a freshman out of West High, pinned the Vikings at their 4-yard line with a 38-yard punt. Whipple stood at the back of his end zone when Scholten overshot him with the snap, which landed beyond the end line. The score remained 4-0 until late in the second quarter, when Augustana struck for two quick scores. Facing third-and-inches from its 30-yard line, Morningside gambled with a pass play that fell incomplete, then was forced to punt into a breeze that gusted up to 25 mph.

A 23-yard kick let the Vikings start from their 47 and they drove the remaining 53 yards despite two major penalties totaling 38 yards. The penalties made it necessary for Augie to move the ball 91 yards and Rylance, the NCC leader in passing efficiency, completed four straight aerials for 74 yards, including a 33-yard TD strike to Keith v. sV nhuskers' 52-7 Big Saturday.

Nebraska players, who have taken a rap for their futility against top 10 teams of late, hope this performance gains them some respect "We're as good as we want to be," said junior I-back Derek Brown. "But we've got a tough one next week against Kansas and a tough one left with Oklahoma.

"We were ready to play and we wanted everybody to shut up about not beating a top 10 team." Brown, who alternates with Jones at I-back, finished with 80 yards on 20 carries. Colorado ran the football just 12 times for nine yards, operating at times from a no-back offense. Fullbacks Lance Lewis and Cory Schlesinger added touchdown runs in the final stanza for the Huskers, Lewis a 26-yarder and Schlesinger a five-yarder. The margin of victory was the Widest Smce a 69-19 Nebraska romp in duuiuci in iyoj "I was really surprised the way it went," said Osborne. "I didn't see any way we would beat Colorado that badly.

"We'll enjoy this a couple of Eight from page D1 quarter, then plunged in from the 1 on the final play of the half. Hill, a candidate for the Butkus Award given to the country's top linebacker, stripped the ball away from Detmer and recovered at the Colorado 27 with 1:42 left in the half. Nebraska let the clock run down to four seconds before calling time out. Jones then powered into the middle of the line on fourth down, putting the Huskers in front 24-7 at the break.

"I think they had gotten a little momentum back," said Osborne. "Of course, my heart was in my throat on that fourth down play. Common sense would tell you that you ought to kick a field goal, but we wanted the touchdown. The 27-yard scoring march was kept alive by the "fumblerooski," a play made famous by Nebraska several years ago. Guard Will Shields scooped up the intentional fumble and rambled to the Colorado 5, giving the Huskers first and goal.

Nebraska took a 31-7 lead when Ponca, product Gerald Armstrong hauled in a five-yard pass from Tommie Frazier with 3:28 left Handy's fumble costly for Tigers East girls take third in district swim meet Harper with 4:45 left in the half. It was just 56 seconds later that Augustana linebacker Brian Hoime, filling in for starter Brad Murkins, picked off an careless Al Randolph pass and rumbled 42 yards to send his team in front 14-4. Murkins, a former East High grid-der who has started four seasons for the Vikings, sustained a partially torn calf muscle late in the first quarter, but returned to play most of the second half. He totaled 10 tackles, third high for the hosts. Aside from his four straight completions on the second-quarter TD drive, Rylance completed just six of his other 25 attempts on the day.

He was sacked seven times, including four by Jones. The talented sophomore from Watertown had missed practice all week due to a knee injury. "The knee had nothing to do with it, I just played poorly," said a subdued Rylance, standing before a mirror, dabbing a facial wound with a towel. "We don't have any excuses. We stunk up the field."

North Dakota intercepted a pair of Northern Colorado passes in its own territory to grab a 21-14 victory over the Bears at Jackson Field, snapping UNC's 12-game home field winning streak. The 19th ranked Sioux improved to 5-2-1 overall and 5-1-1 in the NCC, while UNC slipped to 5-4 overall and 3-4 in the NCC.

Trailing 21-6, UNC got back in the game when V.J. Lechman hit Mark Berven on a 22-yard touchdown pass with 7:22 remaining. A two-point conversion from Lechman to Darnell Brooks then made it 21-14. On the next series, North Dakota's Ross Almlie fumbled, and UNC's Mitch Blain recovered at the 20-yard line. On UNC's subsequent offensive series, however, Lechman's pass into the end zone was intercepted by Craig Koller.

UNC got a final chance in the game's final two minutes, driving to North Dakota's 27-yard line, but with 1:02 remaining, Lechman's pass over the middle was intercepted by Jeff Perkins at the 10-yard line. North Dakota led 21-0 at the half behind Shannon Burncll's 70 rushing yards and a touchdown. The Sioux also scored late in the first quarter on a 9-yard touchdown pass from Kory Wahl to Aaron Schramm. Wahl also scored from one yard out on a keeper with 28 seconds in the half.

Pooler punted McMillion after the Handy threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Kent Gardner the first time Missouri had the ball, capping a snappy six-play, 60-yard drive, and ran eight yards for a touchdown to pull the Tigers to 21-14 with 5:19 left in the third quarter. Missouri had a chance to get within a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, only to lose the ball when Handy fumbled on a quarterback sneak from the Iowa State 1.

from page D1 Tigers' problems, "Their kicking game and our offensive mistakes are what killed us," said Stull, whose team is 1-7 overall, 0-4 in the league. "The wind was not a factor." Iowa State trailed 7-0 when Seiler in the third quarter. For Armstrong, a 6-2, 215-pound junior tight end, it was his fourth reception of the season, all of them for touchdowns. "I don't worry about making touchdowns," said Armstrong, a 1989 Ponca High School graduate. "The streak is nice, but I just worry about catching the football." Frazier, who outperformed Detmer in a battle of freshman quarterbacks, added a one-yard touchdown flip to William Washington in the fourth quarter.

The Bradenton, native, the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Huskers, passed for 55 yards and two scores and carried 17 times for 86 yards. "Tommie played well. I have seen him throw the ball better, but the thing about Tommie is he doesn't seem to get excited," said Osborne. "He plays like he was back in high school.
