I CYCLONES U Spines CYCLONES- Continued from Page One by Ben Gregory's fumbles, and finally had to depend on John Warder's passing to move the ball at all. The junior quarterback hit on nine of 27 tries for 83 yards Actually, though, he deserved better fate. Several of his throws were dropped by re ceivers. Misses Chance One such miss came early in the game. Tom Busch, who caught 13 passes a week before against Kansas, had one of Warder's throws in his hands at the Kansas 45 and seemingly could have made a 76-yard scor ing play out of it. But Busch dropped the ball, apparently in his haste to make a quick get-away. The unfortunate Cyclone rushing story went like this: Ben King netted just 15 yards in 10 tries, Les Webster got six in eight attempts, Busch six in two and Warder lost 32 in 19.

Davis pounded for 87 yards in 19 carries, Orduna got 76 in 14 and Gregory when he managed to hang onto the ball picked up 47 in 15 tries. Key Tackle The score could have been worse. Patrick ran for an apparent eight-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but it was nullified because of an illegal procedure penalty. Later, with fourth down on the t h r e e , Willie Muldrew, stopped Gregory a yard short of the end zone. Iowa Mate was out of trouble, but only temporarily. ; King was tackled in the end lone for a safety by end Frank Avolio on first down. Avolio was just one of the many Kusker defensive heroes. Middle guard Wayne Meylan made nine unassisted tackles, tackle Jim McCord five and linebacker Barry Alvarez bolted through for six.

"There was no more you could ask of our team," Stapleton said ''NebrasKa simply was too strong. 'Gave Us Breaks' Stapleton said the Cornhuskers "gave us enough breaks for us to win the game, but their defense took the chances awav from us." The Nebraska defense statis tically is the nation's best. Stapleton concurred with that rank and said moving the ball had been his main concern before the game. "Our defense was good. But we had to match points in a game like this." Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney Individual Statistics RUSHING I Nebraska Yds - 32 Patrick Iowa State Att. Att. 13 15 14 19 I Int. I Int.

The Husker defense has held opponents to an average of 15S.5 yards in six games. Iowa State managed 7853 passing and minus five on the ground. Critical Devaney wasn't impressed with the Nebraska offense, however. "We didn't make the big third-down plays," said Devaney, adding the Huskers made costly mistakes in scoring territory. Wayne Meylan, Nebraska's all-America middle guard, j said the 'team's pride was a factor in holding them to minus yardage today." I "If you only have confidence in yourself," he said, "you're not going to stop anybody. But we have pride." Iowa State halfback Les Web ster also praised the Husker defense. "They were coming through our line like water Everyone on the team im pressed me." Quarterback John Warder called Nebraska's defense "outstanding." "I got banged up during the game but I'm all right.
