NEBRASKA Continued from Page One think anybody is going to beat Nebraska." "The turning point," added Warmath, "was when they blew the whistle for the opening kickoff." ... Actually, there was almost one entire hopeful quarter for the Gophers after they were stricken by the first of Jerry Tagge's three touchdown passes to Johnny Rodgers and Jeff Kinney's one-yard scoring spin in the first period. Minnesota sneered at the Huskers' awesome reputation and their 14-point lead by dominating all but the closing moments of the second quarter. The Gophers cracked Nebraska's proud defense, 34-7 conqueror of Oregon the week be fore, with a 79-yard scoring thrust. - Then, as the Huskers contin ued to flounder on offense, Min nesota's Bill Light recovered a fumbled pitchout at the Nebraska 39. Penalty Helps Craig Curry, with the help of a piling-on penalty, steered the Gophers to the Nebraska 10 before the Huskers asserted their authority and forced a futile field goal attempt. It was at this point, Devaney said, that he considered replacing Tagge with Van Brownson of Shenandoah, la. "Except for that first touchdown pass," said the coach, "Tagge hadn't been throwing . well.

Tagge also pegged one 17 yards to Woody Cox in a drive that finished with Kinney's one-yard touchdown leap just 34 seconds before the half ended. Late Appearance So Brownson, who has been bothered by muscle spasms in his throwing shoulder, didn't get an opportunity to crank up until he took over along with other reserves in the fourth quarter. By then, Tagge had fired with stunning accuracy to the fleet Rodgers for two more touchdowns. Johnny seized the first from a crowd of defenders at the Gopher 13 and raced on to' complete a 20-yard play. Tagge found him free in the end zone for the next, a 37-yarder. "We did make more mistakes today than we did in our opener, admitted Devaney. "But I think you have to give Min-n e s o t a ' s aggressive defense some of the credit for that. . "This is a better Minnesota team than we beat last year (35-10). They lack maturity now, but I think they're going to develop into a team that's going to surprise some opponents."

Duenas ran a keeper from the 14-yard line to notch Colorado's first touchdown in the first period. Duenas also scored on runs of three and 34 yards.

Their mistakes were more than offset, though, when Ernie Cook bobbled the finish of a 70-yard procession led by Curry's passing. 1 Cook, the leading Gopher rusher on the damp artificial turf under leaden skies, lost the ball just before he crashed into the end zone. It skittered into the grasp of Nebraska's Randy Borg for a touchback. Cook crunched out 81 yards in .18 trips, wnue Kinney lea Nebraska with 79 in 16 tries. The passers were more productive. Curry pegged for 132 yards by completing 15 of 32, but had two stolen. Passing Sharp Tagge was the winning pitch er with 218 yards. Jerry hit on 14 of 21, missing just two of nine in the decisive third quarter, and wasn't robbed once. "We had to have good passing," said Devaney, "because Minnesota was a lot tougher against the run than Oregon was last week." "I didn't think it was one of my better passing games, though," said Tagge. "Rodgers' speed was the main thing on those three touchdown throws. He beat the defense every time." The first covered 28 yards, so Rodgers' scoring plays were good for a total of 85.

The score was 7-7 with 34 seconds remaining in the first half when Phillips lofted the pass to Jim Moore. Phillips guided Texas to two other touchdowns before 36,504 in Memorial Coliseum. The Longhorns, unimpressing in some respects, put the game out of sight with two touchdowns in the last quarter. With minutes remaining, Donnie Wigginton replaced Phillips when UCLA lost the ball on downs on its 17. On the first play, Wigginton circled end for the final touch down. In the first quarter, young quarterback Mike Flores, with running aid from Marv Ken-dircks, moved UCLA 83 yards in 10 plays. Flores passed the final 42 to Reggie Echols for a touchdown.

(AP) A brilliant Kansas defense paved the way for all the scoring Saturday as the Jayhawks' football machine thrashed Baylor, 22-0. Dan Heck's nine-yard pass to Mike Cerne early in the secend quarter produced the first touchdown. It ended a 27-yard drive after Lee Hawkins intercepted and returned 30 yards. Kansas got its second touchdown with 23 seconds remaining on Jerome Nel-loms five-yard sweep. Seconds earlieer, the Jayhawks received the ball on the 50 on a kick following a safety.

Oklahoma raced to a 20-0 halftime lead as the Sooner defense, led by big end Raymond Hamilton, frustrated Southern Methodist, which got into enemy territory only once in the opening half and suffered from fumbles throughout the game. The game was played in intermittent rain, but the poor conditions did not hamper Okla homa's powerful wishbone-T at tack. Pruitt, Mildren and fullback Leon Crosswhite notched touchdowns and sophomore John Carroll scored on three of four field goal attempts. Wylie added several long scampers on the watery Tartan turf. Pruitt scored on a six-yard scamper and Mildren hit pay- dirt on a 10-yard run in the second quarter. Crosswhite tal lied on a one-yard plunge in the third period. Hamilton kept the pressure on Southern Methodist quarterback Gary Hammond and Oklahoma's defense allowed only 48 yards rushing and minus one yard passing in the first half. SMU made only 137 total yards as Hamilton was in on 14 tackles and threw Hammond three times for losses. Mildren was the leading rusher with 109 yards on 25 carries.
