NEB. Powerful Nebraska put on another awesome football show for the bowl scouts Saturday, then sat bark to await the inviations that will send the unbeaten Corn-buskers somewhere on New Year's Day. After making life miserable for star passer Lynn Dickey and routing Kansas State, 5113, the Dusker may have their pick of the Colton, Orange or Sugar bowls. Representatives from those major classics were in the throng of 87,894 that saw Nebraska clinch at least a share of the Rig Eight championship with unexpected ease, boosting its season record to nine victories and one tie. The Orange Bowl offered its invitation later Saturday.

Interceptions The Huskers intercepted seven of Dickey's passes, setting a school record, and their offense ran roughshod over the outclassed Wildcats. Halfback Joe Orduna led the onslaught by scoring four touchdowns. "I definitely would prefer going to the Orange Bowl," said a happy Orduna. "I've always felt it was the best of the bowls, but I don't know whether going there would help us be No. 1.

That's what we're after." Coach Bob DeVaney was expected to let his players vote on bowl bids today. While Nebraska has only one game left, against Oklahoma here next Saturday, all the other top bowl contenders have two or more remaining. Nebraska's Oklahoma date has taken on added importance because the Huskers must win it to claim the Big Eight title all alone. They have a 6-0 conference record and Oklahoma still is in the running at 4-1. Kansas State came into this game at 5-1 and seeking an upset victory that would have produced a sure championship tie, but the tempo of what turned out to be a long afternoon for the Wildcats was on their opening series.

Linebacker Jerry Murtaugh of the Huskers swiped a Dickey pass and returned it to the K-State 30-yard line. Record Thefts Then on Nebraska's first offensive play, sophomore Johnny season series is now 2-1. LeClair twice smashed a shot at Carter from 10 feet directly in front of the net and both times Carter slapped the puck back at Nellie. However, after his second deflection. Carter slipped and LeClair lofted his score over the fallen goalie.

The Mohawks connected on a pair of goals 17 seconds apart after the opening eight minutes. Bob Tombari cashed a pass from Bob Hammil into a 20-foot er from in front of the net, then defenseman John Mig-neault flipped a 25-foot, backhander past Leaf goalie Gaye Cooley. Muskegon iced the game with four goals during a six-minute stretch in the middle period. Kelly's two tallies were sandwiched around both of Harris scores. Kelly counted his first goal by taking a pass from John Bannatyne on a power play to beat Cooley.

His second came on a rebound of Gary Ford's shot. Harris' first goal was in thp form of a gift, glancing off the S4t CX ''Iftjpi UNIVERSITY PARK, 1'A. (AP) Mike Smith intercepted four passes, returning one for a touchdown, and Lydell Mitchell scored three times as Penn State defeated Ohio University, 32-22, Saturday in football. Smith intercepted one pass in the end zone and two more on Penn State's two and 32, stopping three serious threats. Smith's first interception, with a 28-yard runhack, gave Penn State a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

Penn State made it 13-0, driving 98 yards, with Mitchell slanting over left tackle for the final 20. Ohio then scored on a 45-yard run by Bill Gary, who scored all three Bobcat touchdowns.

(AP) Linebacker Dale Farley intercepted a fourth-quarter Syracuse pass here Saturday period when they launched 15 of their 31 shots. After that, however, they were usually too busy trying to help out Cooley to concentrate on their own offensive punch. The only threat Des Moines presented after the first period was on LeClair's goal, hut all that did was cut Muskegon's margin to 6-1.

Rodgers raced inside right tackle on a wingback reverse and galloped into the end zone. Another rookie, defensive back Joe Blahak, was a key figure in the Cornhusker romp by picking off three of the frustrated Dickey's throws, matching a school record. "I think you'd have to say Dickey had an off day," said Blahak. "From watching films, it seemed he threw a lot better in other games than he did in this one." Meanwhile, quarterback Jer- After the call, McLeod had words with referee Howie Halter, who slapped Don with a misconduct penalty.

That failed to quiet McLeod and Halter presented him with a game misconduct, too.

"With Tagge going so well, there wasn't much need for me to play," said Van.

"But the important thing is that I'm OK again and ready to go." The first of Blahak's interceptions really opened the flood gates late in the third quarter.
