Nebraska's Frank Patrick fades to pass, but he's in trouble ... wsMsmmmmrmm nmiii is arms THE DAILY OKLAHOMAN Friday, Nov. 24, 1967 19 OU Staves Off Huskers CONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 who netted 127 yards on 17 jaunts, fumbled and G. Harper recovered. ' On the Huskers' second chance. Davis careened 26 yards on a fourth-and-one gamble from his 41 and Patrick's 11-yard toss to Joe Orduna made it first down on the 11. On second down from the nine. Pal-rick aimed a pass for Davis at the goal, but Harper cut in front of him and intercepted on the three. Wheeler, whose punt out on the five gave OU the field position which led to the winning "touchdown, and also got off pressurized punts of 38, 51, 47 and 47 in the final 12 minutes, booted the Huskers out to the OU 49. On first down, Patrick's cross-country aerial was picked off by Bar rett on the 14. Nebraska, which didn't let OU make a first down in its final four possessions, got the ball back next on its 33. Patrick hit Dennis Richnafsky for 13 and Davis slashed 13 and seven to OU's 3G, where it was second-and-threc. Then Orduna was limited to a yard, Patrick's pass was to hot for Morrison to catch or Stephenson to intercept and it was fourth-and-two and all ihe chips were in one pulsating stack with 2:12 to play. The Huskers used their bread-and-butter play, a pitchout and power sweep by Gregory. The 210-pound senior slammed the left side, but got nothing as Granville Liggins, G. Harper, Koller, Barrett, and Don Pfrimmor led a mass tackle. Nebraska had one last chance, from its 31 with 4S seconds to go. With Barrett playing 30 yards deep guarding against the bomb, Patrick passed to Morrison for 2G to OU 23. A short flip to Gregory netted only four, then Patrick missed Richnafsky. Thirteen seconds remained. Patrick was pressured and forced into heaving a long pass that fell behind everyone in Ihe end zone. Three seconds showed on the clock as Nebraska launched its last ditch play from the 39. Patrick was in trouble again and tried for Morrison in the right corner of the field, but the ball didn't I PATRICK Sooner end John Koller charges in and wraps h around the lanky quarterback, knocking the ball loose as he hit Patrick's arm cvmc close, hitting inside the five as Bruce Stcnsrud kept watch on Morrison back up field. Thus the Sooners donned the Big Eight crown for the first time since 19G2, although the Huskers, who have been champs since then, rolled up exactly L'ni'j yards more passing than 1he Sooners have been accustomed to giving a foe this season. At the outset the Huskers, who were b e i n g watched by Liberty and Sun Bowl folks, didn't look as if they were even slightly interested in going anywhere. Orduna was cracked by Vachon on the kickoff and Stephenson recovered on the 2G. Warmack's 17-yard pass to Hinton carried to the seven but. after Zabel barely missed a Warmnck pitch in the end zone, the Sooners had to settle for a Vachon field goal from the 10. A 17-yard pickup on an exchange of punts left OU '17 yards from the 10-O louc h d o w n. Warmack rammed 10 and passed to Minion for IS, and Shotts made 11 to the first down nn the six in two attempts. Then it was Shotts going one, Warmack four and Shotts into the end zone. Nebraska got to its 40 with the next kickoff but Patrick, who had his arm cocked to pass, was banged by Koller and Liggins recovered on the 31. And offside penalty prevented the Sooners from getting past the 26, but Vachon made it 13-0 with a Scores Other College Aalichlan 21, Guilford 1?. Lenoir Rhyne 76, Catawba 7.

Lindsay's hungry ground machine, headed by Gone Wilton and Lindell Shoemaker, ate up 298 yards through ihe leaky Yukon defense. The Leopards wont to the air only sparingly but made two of their nine tosses count for touchdowns. Lindsay jumped out. to a 7-0 load 1he first time it got the ball, giving up three points on the way. On a fourth-and-five situation from the Yukon 15, Wilton boomed home a 29-yard field goal but Yukon was culled for illegal procedure giving the Leopards a first down and new life at the 10. Four plays later, Shoe-make charged over from Ihe three and Lindsay never trailed, but it wasn't always certain of its margin. lit,; Game in Figures lowns rUV-U L 15 bv 1?U Wilton was ihe game's leading rusher wiih 110 yards on 1!) carries, 96 coming in the second half. The 195-p ound halfback also had a 3S-yard field goal, which gave Lindsay a 10-0 margin, and was perfect: on four extra point kicks. Lindsay so successfully bottled up Yukon's running, especially that of big 216-pound fullback Robert. Jensen, that the Millers were forced to go to the air early In the second period. Yukon ended up with only 87 yards on the ground with Jensen getting 58 of that. Yukon scored with 32 seconds left in the first half on a Jensen-to-David McCurdy pass and when the Millers converted for two points it was a new ball game at 10-8. Lindsay added to that margin when quarterback Kent Davis pitched five ya-tls to Bo Doydsion late in the third period. But Yukon came right back on the first play from scrimmage with Mike Schoshkc firing 71 yards to Terry Fiala. The Leopards were not dismayed, however, coming back 63 yards to score. After Lindsay had marched to the Yukon 27 on the ground, the Leopards once again went: to the air with Davis hitting Allan Orr for 27 yards. Yukon then returned the favor, scoring on its next possession, another Schoshkc-lo-Fiala aerial spanning 38 yards. Lindsay made its service good also, coming right back with another score. When Wilton bounced off a tackier at Ihe line of scrimmage at the 18 and churned in to score, the Millers were in a deep 31-20 hole with 5: 16 to go. LINDSAY Jl. YUKON 20 lT&Iv ".y.-.-.v.-.r." I ifcH field goal from the 33 just 1:41 into the second quarter. Nebraska swarmed back with Patrick passing to Orduna for 20 and Gregory for 12 and six. It was fourth-and-one on the 34 and Davis broke loose for 22 to the 12. Three plays later Patrick tossed to Gregory for eight and the TD. The Huskers' lead touchdown drive started from their 20 with only three minutes left in the half. They needed a big play and they got it. Patrick flipped into the right flat to Gregory, who broke two tackles short of midfield and steam rollered to OU'i 27. Patrick completions of 13 to Morrison and 11 to Richnafsky. plus Davis' 10-yard trek made it first clown on the one. Two plays later. Patrick sneaked off left guard and Bomberger booted the Huskers ahead. The decisive OU movement started from Nebraska's 21 after Wheeler's 35-yard punt went: out on the five and Dana Stephenson's return boot went only 21. On third-and-10. Warmack passed 11 to Zabel. On the next play. Warmack faked to Shotts hitting into the left side and pitched wide to Hinton. who sailed around a key block by Zabel and outran Huskcr Adrian Fiala to the end zone flag. Oklahoma's kicking team went on field, but the Sooners called time out and put the regular offensive unit back in. The Sooners lined up in a slot-1 formation, Warmack quick-pitched to Shotts running right, and Shotts firec the ball to Zabel. who was wide open in the end zone. OKLAHOMA Rusl Pan Receiving C Yd!

"Barren did a great Job," said Fair-bank. "Nebraska completed a bunch (22 for 290 yard) but they turned the bull back to us four times so our secondary kids are due some credit." Frank Patrick, who did all that Nebraska passing, is only a sophomore. But he set so many school records Thursday thoy barely fit on a whole sheet of mimeograph paper. "He's n good player," said Fairbanks. "Potentially a grent one. He really had n grand day against us, no question about it." Fairbanks vetoed any thought the Sooner might have eased up a bit after striking for that quick 13-0 lead. He said you can base what transpired next on the fact Nebraska is no slouch. Before the first half ended the Huskers had rejoined the living, hammering 75 and 80 yards on beautifully conducted drives, to wrest a 14-13 lead. "We really didn't feel too bad at halt-time," said Sooner Granville Liggins. "As far as we were concerned It was tied up." Then Granville sort of contradicted himself.
