SPORTS The Manhattan Mercury B2 Sunday, November 7, 1993 1 Kansas goes for the-yictory, ends up with a loss to NU Wn 1 -W- TheJayhawkstooktheopening kickoff and marched 66 yards in nine plays to grab a 7-0 lead. After Preston's pass was incomplete to tight end Dwayne Chandler on third and six from the 30, the Jay- I hawks surprised Nebraska by trying an almost identical piay on fourth and six. This time, Chandler got behind safety John Reece in the end zone and cradled Preston's perfectly thrown ball. Nebraska, which hasn't lest since a 27-14 setback to Florida State in the Orange Bowl last season, mounted a 13-play, 73-yard march to tie it at 7-7 on its first possession. Faced with a fourth and two from the 14, Frazier kept around right end for 10 yards to the 4, and Jones scored on the next play.

Henley had 148 yards on 37 tries, including 56ya.rds on 13 carries during the final drive. The true freshman, who has rushed for 645 yards in his last four games, converted three third-down situations in the final march. "There's tremendous hurt in that lockerroom.

I can't describe it," said Mason. "That was the gutsiest performance by a group of guys I've ever been around." Calvin Jones had 195 yards on 29 carries and broke loose on a 51-yard gallop that set up Frazier's tie-breaking touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Very few times in the last quarter-century has Nebraska struggled so hard to beat the Jayhawks, who forged a 14-14 tie on Preston's 5-yard run in the third period and went into the fourth quarter nottrailingthe Huskers for the first time since 1973. It's the closest outcome between the old Big Eight rivals since Nebraska won the 1973 game 10-9. "I really did have a lot of emotions toward this game," Jones said.

"It seems like everyone wants a shot at us, but we are also one of the top five teams in the nation and we are leading the Big Eight." "Defensively, Kansas stopped us fiat and their offensive line was stronger than us," Osborne said. Associated Press LAWRENCE r- When did Glen Mason decide to go for two points and not settle for a tie against No. 6 Nebraska? "When I first took this job and saw what a lopsided series it was," said the Kansas coach, choking back his emotions after the unbeaten Huskers saved a 21-20 victory by stopping a 2-point play with 52 seconds left. It was the 25th consecutive victory over Kansas for Nebraska and kept the Huskers (9-0 overall, 5-0 Big Eight) in line for a possible national championship match in the Orange Bowl. "I would have gone for two if all we needed to win the Big Eight championship was a tie," Mason said.

After freshman sensation June Henley vaulted across the goal line from 3 yards out, capping a 17-play, 80-yard drive, Kansas called time out. Quarterback Asheiki Preston went back to pass for what would have been Kansas' first victory over Nebraska since 1968. But the pass for Ashaundi Smith fell incomplete in a crowded corner of the end zone and Nebraska recovered the ensuing onside kick. "I would like to congratulate Kansas," said Nebraska coach Tom Osborne. "They played really well today.

Before coming into this game we knew for sure that Kansas would be tough. And they showed us that today." "Basically, I think they were lucky," said Kansas guard Hess-ley Hempstead.

'We spotted them too many points," Stull said.

"Instantly, we were in a hole and we were fighting for our lives." Oklahoma (7-2 overall, 2-2 Big Eight) has beaten Missouri 10 straight times and 22 of the last 24 meetings, but this was far from a typical game. This time, after Oklahoma appeared to have put away Missouri with its option attack, the Cale Gundy-led offense began passing more and stalled. "They changed up and started to put eight and nine people on the line of scrimmage and they started blitzing," Gibbs said. "You just don't have enough people to secure every man up front, so you've got to throw the football. "They did a nice job of moving people around and we kind of got out of sync." Oklahoma's goal-line stand midway through the fourth quarter proved to be the big play of the game as David Campbell stopped Greg Smith on fourth-and-goal from the 1, because Missouri scored on its next possession.

A personal foul penalty on the ensuing punt gave the Tigers the ball on the Oklahoma 23. Joe Freeman ran for 9 yards on a fourth-and-2 from the 15 and Jeff Handy hit Mike Jadlot in the corner of the end zone with 5:05 to go.

Perhaps the biggest play came with 13 seconds left before half-time when Johnson outjumped a defender in the end zone to give the Buffaloes a 17-7 lead. Johnson's 31-yard punt return had given the Buffaloes the ball at the Oklahoma State 36 with 38 seconds left. Midway through the third quarter, Stewart threw along the right sideline to Johnson, who caught the ball despite being interfered with and trotted into the end zone to make it 24-7.

Johnson finished with six catches for 121 yards. The 72-yarder to Westbrook came on a split end screen on which Westbrook broke clear of tacklers near the line of scrimmage and went all the way. Associated Press STILLWATER, Okla. Kordell Stewart threw three touchdown passes and became Colorado's career passing leader Saturday as the 23rd-ranked Buffaloes beat Oklahoma State 31-14. Stewart threw scoring passes of 26 and 54 yards to Charles Johnson and a 72-yarder to Michael Westbrook.

The Buffaloes (5-3-1, 3-1-1 Big Eight) had 448 yards of offense. Oklahoma State (3-6, 0-5) lost its fifth straight game and its fifth in a row, to Colorado, although the Cowboys did manage to score in the fourth quarter for the first time this year. Stewart, who also ran for a touchdown, completed 18 of 30 passes for 328 yards.

Dwayne Chandler finally ended the suspense with a 3-yard run, his second touchdown of the game, with 1:08 to go, and Mike Coats returned an interception 26 yards with one second left. Missouri (3-5-1, 2-3) fell to 0-5 against nationally ranked opponents, but this was its best performance by far in those games.

"He's a very good horse in Europe, and I knew he would handle the dirt." Arcangues and the New York-based Lure, who won the Mile for the second straight year, were the only two non-California winners on the seven-race Breeders' Cup card. The last time the Breeders' Cup was at Santa Anita, in 1986, four of the seven races were won byCalifornians. Bertrando took the lead, blazing out of the gate in the ltt-mile Classic and holding it until Arcangues blew past him in mid-stretch. Bertrando held on for second, lengths ahead of KissinKris. The 5-year-old Arcangues had won only one of four starts this year, all in France, but the $1,560,000 winner's share boosted his career earnings to $1,858,520 for owner Daniel Wildenstein, a Paris art dealer and historian.

Going off at 3-5, the shortest odds of the day, the once-beaten 2-year-old colt Dehere finished eighth ina field of 11 million Juvenile, won by Brocco, the fourth California-based winner in the first five races.

The 20th-ranked Sooners scored on their first three possessions and rolled up a 28-0 lead midway through the first half, but ended up with a less-than-satisfy-ing 42-23 Big Eight victory over Missouri on Saturday. It took two tack-on touchdowns in the final 1:08 to put the game away for Oklahoma, which topped 50 points in each of its previous four meetings against Missouri.

This time, the Sooners out-gained the Tigers just 356-341 in total yards. "We're happy to win," Gibbs said. "It was a close game." Missouri coach Bob Stull, who's under fire with a 15-36-2 record in his five seasons, knew it too. His team "dominated the second half," he asserted. Stull said he didn't care that casual onlookers might look at the score and figure this was just another Oklahoma blowout like last year (55-17), the year before (56-16), the year before that(55-10) or the year before that (52-14).

"Who cares if Johnny Schmuck in San Diego sees they scored 45 points?" Stull said. "We lost the game because we made some mistakes. Whether it was 45 or 32 or 35 points doesn't make much difference." KSU women in 17th place Kansas State's women's golf team stands in 17th place after the first two rounds of the Texas Invitational. Donita Gleason had rounds of 86 and 87 for a 173 to tie for 61st place. Denise Pottle and Jacque Wright are in a tie for 65th after respective rounds of 86-88 and 89-85, respectively.

Staci Busch and Debbie Chrystal share 8th place with two-round scores of 187. The K-State team has a 705 total for the first two days. Florida International leads the event with a 639. 'Cat volleyballers take double loss BATON ROUGE, La. Kansas State's volleyball team fell victim to LSU on Friday and Mississippi on Saturday as the Wildcats went out of conference to play in the Big Eight-Southeast Challenge.

With a hitting percentage of .123, K-State fell in 1-2-3 straight games, 15-9, 15-7 and 15-8 to LSU. GiGi Ghattas led the 'Cats with 10 kills, while Chi Dau had 27 aces. Against Ole Miss, K-State lost 15-5, 15-8 and 15-11 with a hitting percentage of .198. The victory was only the third of the year for Mississippi in a total of 25 matches. "I thought Friday we came out real confident and played as well as we have in a couple weeks," said KSU coach Patti Hagemeyer.

"Saturday, we never really got into it." Freshman Kate DeClerk was named to the all-tournament team as she hit .455 against LSU and .385 against Mississippi. "Kate played very well," said Hagemeyer. "She has been learning a lot and is hitting the ball extremely well. She is gaining confidence and continues to get better and better." Kansas State returns to Big Eight Conference play Wednesday night when they head to the University of Missouri. 'i he Wildcats' record is now 7-22.

Associated Press ARCADIA, Calif. Party on, dudes. It was just about an all-Southern California affair Saturday at Santa Anita until the French-based Arcangues staged the biggest Breeders' Cup upset of all time. "I couldn't even understand the instructions in the paddock. I don't even know how to pronounce the horse's name," Arcangues' jockey, Jerry Bailey, said.

Learn it. It's Ar-Kong. The Kentucky-bred Arcangues, who went off at odds of 133-1, rallied furiously down the stretch and won the $3 million Classic by two lengths over pace-setting Bertrando. Arcangues returned $269.20 for a winning $2 ticket. The previous record winning payoff was Lasharki, who paid $108 after going off at 53-1 in the 1984 Turf.

While the party was over for the New York 2-year-old Dehere, who lost in the Juvenile, the win by Arcangues salvaged the day for Frenchman Andre Fabre. Foreign horses failed to win a single race at the Breeders' Cup last year at Gulfstream and none of the 19, eight of which were trained by Fabre, had won here Saturday until Arcangues. "We had a lot of confidence in K-State suffers (1) Continued from Page Bl May and dashed 54 yards for a touchdown with 1:07 left. However, K-State's desperation on-side kick was easily recovered by Iowa State. "I think we got too comfortable, too lax and they came back and stung us," Smith said of wasting the lead.

Smith's touchdown was the only K-State score that wasn't set up by an Iowa State turnover. In the second quarter, Dirk Ochs intercepted Bob Utter's pass at midfield. Six plays later, Smith socred on a one-yard run. During the Cyclones' first possession of the second half, Mendez wrapped his arms around Utter to cause a fumble that was recovered by Percell Gaskins at the Cyclone nine-yard line. Four plays later, Tate Wright booted a 40-yard field goal.

Midway through the third quarter, Thomas Randolph picked off Utter's pass at midfield that set up May's short run. K-State attempts to regroup next week in its final home game when it plays the University of Missouri. "They hurt a great deal," Snyder said of his team's reaction to the loss. "Their pride is bent a great deal." J.J. Smith has scored 66 points this KPAsnn urhinh panic Police usher a streaker out of the stadium.

Streaker adds to day Associated Press AMES.Iowa One of the longest runs during the Kansas State-Iowa State football game was by a guy with no pads. And no clothes, either. Ames police said Paul K. Davis, 19, of Ames was charged Saturday with public intoxication and criminal trespassing. He was held Saturday night at the Ames jail.

Braving 25-degree cold, the nude Davis emerged from eastside stands at Cyclone Stadium and raced across the field in front of 31,441 fans late in the third quarter. Two security guards grabbed Davis near the Kansas State cheerleaders and handcuffed him behind his back. The guards then walked the man still with nothing on but the andcuffs out of the stadium. "I guess he had somebody from Kansas State he was trying to impress," Iowa State coach Jim Walden said. "I don't know, but I don't think they were," A4-A fourth for a K-State player in a season.

After rushing for more than 100 yards in consecutive weeks against UNLV Kansas and Nebraska, Smith hasgained atotal of 114 yards' in the past three games. Chad May's 54-yard touchdown pass to Smith late in the game tied a Big Eight record for throwing a TD pass in eight consecutive games. The mark ties Colorado's Darian Hagan. May has 2,206 passing yards on the season to rank third in school history. He passed Lynn Dickey's total (1970) and and Carl Straw's total (1990) Paul Watson is second with 2,354 yards.

In the past two games May has completed 26 of 61 passes (43 percent) for 400 yards. K-State outscored Iowa State 10-0 in the third quarter For the season, the Wildcats have outscored its opponents 70-3 in the third quarter. Before Saturday's game, the Wildcats had outscored their opponents 71-49 in the fourth quarter. Freshman Kevin Lockett has 628 receiving yards which ranks sixth for a season on K-State's all-time list Lockett and Mitch Running have caught a pass in all nine games this season. Dirk Ochs' interception in the second quarter was the first of his career and K-State's first pick since the UNLV game Sept.

Game conditions included a 25-degree temperature a 10 mph wind from the west-northwest and partly sunny skies. Three golfers tied in Yokawa Associated Press YOKAWA, Japan Dale Eggeling shot a 6-under-par 66 Saturday and moved into a share of the lead with Hollis Stacy and Tina Barrett after two rounds of the Japan Queens Cup.

Eggeling, who began the day three shots off the pace, had four birdies on the front nine and three birdies and one bogey on the back sude. Barrett, who was two shots off the lead after the first round, fired a bogey-free 67, while Stacy sank a 13-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole en route to a 68.
