The Cyclones controlled the line of scrimmage and ran, ran, ran. Led by quarterback Marv Seiler, Iowa State posted some Nebraskalike rushing numbers Saturday and won 19-10 its first victory over the Cornhuskers since 1977. Seiler, a fifth-year senior making his first start, ran 24 times for 144 yards as the Cyclones (4-6 overall, 2-4 Big Eight) piled up 373 yards on the ground. Seiler' s big day included a 78-yard run that set up Iowa State's only touchdown. Ty Stewart kicked four field goals for the Cyclones and the defense did the rest, holding Nebraska to 192 yards rushing and 246 total yards. "We just wanted to execute our offense," Seiler said. "We knew if we tried to pass, they would have come at us and killed us. We just tried to run the ball and use up the clock." Nebraska (7-2, 4-1) had been leading the nation in rushing (351.1 yards a game) and scoring (43.3) and was coming off routs of 52-7 over Colorado and 49-7 over Kansas. But except for some nifty scrambling by freshman quarterback Tommie Frazier in the first half, the Cornhuskers were unable to get their offense in gear against Iowa State's Iowa State 1 9, Nebraska 1 0 Nebraska.. 3 7 0 0-10 3 9 0 7-18 Iowa State, ISU-FG Stewart 37 NEB FG Bennett 33 ISU-FG Stewart 32 NEB Lewis 15 pass from Frazier (Bennett kick) ISU-FG Stewart 45 ISU-FG Stewart 30 ISU -Ulrich 2 run (Stewart kick) A-42,008 STATISTICS Neb ISU First downs 13 20 Rushes-yards 39-192 70-373 Passing yards. . ..............54 28 Return yards - 0 (-1) Passes 3-12-0 3-4-0 Punts 7-41 2-38 Fumbles-lost 0-0 4-0 Penalties-yards 5-40 2-13 Time of possession 22:48 37: 15 INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS RUSHING - Nebraska, Frazier 13-92, Brown 14-64, Jones 9-28, Lewis 3-8.

And the Nebraska defense couldn't handle Iowa State's triple-option running game, which Coach Jim Walden installed just this year. Iowa State ran it to perfection. The - Cyclones had no turnovers and enjoyed an edge of 37:15 to 22:45 in possession time. "I think the big difference was that they played with a lot of emotion and it looked like our tank was a little bit dry today," Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne said. "We played two emotional games in a row against Colorado and Kansas. We talked a lot about it this week, about the dangers of the situation, and I don't know really how much sunk in." Evidently, not much. "We probably overlooked Iowa State," Nebraska safety Tyrone Byrd said. "We weren't mentally prepared." Stewart's four field goals gave Iowa State a 12-10 halftime lead. It was still 12-10 early in the fourth quarter when Seiler kept the ball on an option and sped 78 yards from his own 20 to the Nebraska 2. Fullback Chris Ulrich, who carried 17 times for 105 yards, scored on the next play. There was still 10:50 to play, but the smell of up upset was wafting through the stadium. "That's when I felt we had our best chance," Seiler said. "After that, I believed in my heart that we could win." Nebraska later drove to the Iowa State 33 but gave the ball up when Frazier's fourth-down pass sailed through Abdul Muhammad's fingers at the 20 with 5:14 left. Iowa State then ran out the clock, after which hundreds of Iowa State fans in the crowd of 42,008 swarmed the field and tore down both goal posts. SEE STRAINED continued on page D6 ..T" & j m .

(AP Photo) St. Cloud decks ChieYS Mauer leads Huskiewin By Terry Hersom Journal sports editor Mark Mauer's final day as a college football quarterback was nothing like the swan song Saturday for his kid brother, Jim. Sure, the stakes were much larger when Mark, now a legislative aide in St. Paul, Minn., quarterbacked Nebraska in the 1982 Orange Bowl. Completing just five of 15 passes, the Husker senior saw his fourth-ranked teammates, with a backfield tandem of Roger Craig and Mike Rozier, drop a 22-15 verdict to Clemson, nailing down a national title for the top-ranked Tigers. Eleven seasons later, Jim Mauer finished off his St. Cloud State career in grand style, leading the Huskies to a 23-6 victory over Morningside in a late-afternoon contest at Roberts Stadium. "I don't know if it was my best day or not, but I suppose it was since it was my last game," said St. Cloud's senior field general. Mauer completed 20 of 36 passes for 238 yards and finished it off by scooting three yards around his right end to score a game-icing touchdown with 3:30 remaining in the game. "I never even thought about it until my dad just mentioned it my last play was a touchdown," beamed Mauer, whose brother, Mark, the former Cornhusker, was among the mere 850 spectators to brave temperatures that dipped near the freezing mark. Morningside, which drove 90 yards to a touchdown after receiving the opening kickoff, was stymied the rest of the day by a formidable St. Cloud State defense. Mauer, meantime, did the rest, coming up with clutch play after clutch play as the Huskies converted no fewer than six fourth-down tries in seven attempts, including all three of their touchdown plays. St. Cloud moved the ball inside Morningside's 15-yard line on all five of its first-half possessions, settling for a 17-6 halftime cushion as the Chiefs' strong defensive unit held once on downs at the 5-yard line and fj' f W ft!

"A quarterback needs two things: confidence and experience. I'm getting more and more each and every time, tne junior quarterback said. Burmeister, making only his sec ond college start, threw four touchdown passes Saturday and Ernest Crank returned an onside kick 43 yards for a score to help give Iowa a 56-14 victory over Northwestern. "It was a big boost in confidence." Burmeister said. "Some days, everything seems to go right lhis is a day you dream aooui. Hopefully, they'll be more in the future." Iowa Coach Hayden Fry, who has seen his offense sputter much of the year, was pleased the seniors went out with a victory in their final home game of the season. Iowa closes its season next week at Minnesota. "We finally exploded," he said. "That was a very satisfying game." Northwestern Coach Gary Barnett was puzzled and angry after the game. "I really thought we had more to play for than we showed today. This is the worst defeat I've ever suffered," said Barnett, whose team had a chance to gain its third win for the first time since 1973. "We had a lot to play for, a lot to play for. I don't know why we didn't play any harder. We just didn't play well, with any heart. There were no surprises out there other than that," Barnett said. Iowa (5-6 overall, 4-3 Big Ten) won its second straight and 19th consecutive game against the Wildcats (2-8, 2-5), who haven't beaten Iowa since 1973. Northwestern hasn't won at Kinnick Stadium since a 28-3 victory in 1971. Burmeister, who went to high school a mile from the stadium at Iowa City West, filled in for the injured Jim Hartlieb for the second straight weebk. The junior threw two scoring strikes apiece to Alan Cross and Jeff Anttila. He completed 17 of 28 passes for 283 yards before being replaced by Matt Eyde late in the third quarter when the game was out of reach.

Heinen scored two touchdowns and Morningside's Anthony Fieldings (44) had 18 tackles in a game won by St. Cloud, 23-6. (Staff photo by Ed Porter) dodged another bullet with a George Busi pass interception. A much stingier second-half performance by Morningside limited the guests' to Mauer's late touchdown on a fourth-down rollout. But the Morningside offense never ventured inside the St. Cloud 40-yard line. "I just didn't feel as though we got up off the deck after playing for all the marbles last week we played kind of flat today," said Morningside Coach Dave Dolch, referring to his team's 24-7 setback a week ago at North Dakota State. North Dakota State nipped archrival North Dakota 20-19 Saturday to capture the North Central Conference title with an 8-1 mark. St. Cloud, the only team to defeat the champion Bison, wound up 6-3 in league games, tying for third place with Augustana. SEEYANCY'S continued on page D2 riar Cliff rolls up 81-66 victory By Barry Poe Journal sports writer The scoreboard showed an 81-66 Briar Cliff men's basketball victory over Dakota State Saturday night at Newman Flanagan Center. But in reality, the Chargers dominated much more than the final tally indicated. Coach Ray Nacke's club won for the second time in two outings, rolling to a 20-point halftime cushion, expanding the lead to 30 in the second half, then taming a brief Trojan rally. Leon Trimmingham scored 23 ' points and grabbed 16 rebounds while Alex Funes added 16 points. Nacke, however, limited his senior standouts to 25 minutes each as Trimmingham had all but four of his points before intermission and Funes all but six. "It's nice to get a little breather because we won't have many of those," said Nacke. "But Dakota State has had some bad breaks already." The Trojans, coached by former South Dakota assistant Brian McDermott, lost two starters to injury before the season began and were minus another player Saturday night. Junior guard Issac Clark broke an ankle during a pre-season scrimmage and will redshirt, while junior college transfer Matt Rettmer will miss the entire season with a back injury. Morcver, 6-8 freshman Mark Haines, fighting a bout with the flu, did not make the trip to Sioux City. "Everything that could go wrong did," said McDermott, a 1978 USD graduate. "We didn't execute much tonight, but we'll get better." Of the top 10 players on the Dakota State roster, eight are newcomers. The lone returning starter is junior forward Maurice Peterson. Two of the fresh faces, senior Keith Carter and junior Floyd Johnson, scored 24 and 19 points respectively. But BC opened things up midway through the first half and gave Nacke an opportunity to use several different combinations before the contest ended. A three-pointer by Duone McFad-den pulled Dakota State within 20-16 with 8:49 left in the first half. Briar Cliff, though, outscored the Trojans 27-11 the rest of the half to take a 47-27 lead at the break. Trimmingham and Funes ac- SEE BRIAR continued on page D5 By Steven Allspach Journal sports writer Twenty-four hours after Fright Night, the Musketeers chased away some demons. Powered by a five-goal third-neriod onslaught, nearlv immaculate goaltending by Brian Leitza and further attention to detail and discipline, the Musketeers breezed to a 7-1 United States Hockey League win over Waterloo Saturday night at Municipal Auditorium. In the previous game on Friday the 13th, Sioux City was axed by lowly Rochester, 8-7. Tony Walters and Jon Garver flipped in two goals each, while Brent Lovett, Derek Locker and Eric Silverman contributed to the coal- scoring in the frolic before 1,919 delighted paying customers. "It might take a little time, but when we all start clicking, I promise you this can be a very, very good hockey team," said Locker, who joined the team this week. Locker played at St. Paul last season and scored 34 goals, the seventh-best total in the USHL. He was ticketed to play at Minnesota-Duluth this season, but changed his mind when it was discovered a problem with summer school course work would not allow him to play until the V second semester. "At St. Paul, it was more fun to play in this rink than at home," said Locker, who also had an assist in his second Musketeer game. "Sioux City is a junior hockey town, the best, that's why I wanted to play here." Leitza and his goaltending mate, Kirk Daubenspeck, have been much maligned .this season because the Musketeers are still only 2-8-2 despite the impressive Saturday romp. However, Leitza turned in an industrious performance and has now let in just one goal in his last six periods of work. Only Brent Bessey, , seconds into inc accuuu pcuuu Saturday, has beaten Leitza, now 2- 2-1. "When we lost the one-goal games early, that hurt us more than anything," said Leitza, who swatted away 28 shots. "It was a team victory. When the rest of the guys are doing a good job that rubs off and makes it a little earier for me. "That extra burst of energy by the other guys carries over. It's been discouraging to lose these close ones, but we're not quitting by any means." SEE MONELL continued on page D3
