SATURDAY QKLAHOMAN & TIMES 1SS Markets Pages 31-36 SATURDAY, NOVEMBER. 27, 1993 21 r Said Than Done Cornhuskers Stay In Race for Title, Beat Sloppy OU By Bob Hersom Staff Writer LINCOLN, Neb. While Oklahoma probably outplayed Nebraska enough to win, the Sooners definitely misplayed the game enough to lose. That was a large and, for OU, chilling chunk of the story on this frigid Friday as No. 2 Nebraska beat the lBuvranked Sooners by the decidedly deceptive score of 21-7. Before the 195th straight capacity (75,674) crowd at wind-whipped Memorial Stadium, the usually sure-handed Sooners misplayed their way to OU's first three-game losing streak to Nebraska since 1981-83. Entering the fray, OU had only 12 turnovers (five intercepted passes and seven lost fumbles) in 10 games. They led the Big Eight and ranked seventh nationally in turnover ratio. Then came this clash with Nebraska, which was a nine-point favorite and is ranked No. 1 by USA Today and No. 2 by The Associated Press. Against the 11-0 and Orange Bowl-bound Cornhuskers, OU (8-3) had four turnovers, including these three back-breakers: Jerald Moore's lost fum- Inside John Rohde's column. Page 23.

Darrius Johnson's lost fumble on a kickoff return, which gave NU possession at OU's 20 early in the fourth quarter and led to the final score (and NU's second touchdown in 13 seconds) one play later.

BOSTON (AP) Unbeaten West Virginia stayed in the national title hunt with a stunning comeback over a Boston College team that ran out of last-minute rallies. Darren Studstill's 24-yard touchdown pass to Ed Hill with 1:08 left, the fifth-ranked Mountaineers' second touchdown in seven minutes, and a two-point conversion gave the Mountaineers a 17-14 victory Friday. The llth-ranked Eagles (8-3) couldn't match their winning comeback at Notre Game Summary Page 25 Dame six days earlier when they got the ball with 1:09' remaining and marched to a last-play field goal and a 41-39 upset. Defensive back Mike Logan, whose fumble recovery started West Virginia's winning drive, ended the last threat with an. end zone interception of Glenn Foley's desperation pass on the final play.

Allen, seven times the world champion and the world leader coming into the 35th NFSR, placed in three of the first four go-rounds and trailed Roy Cooper 49.5-52.5 after four head. As Cooper's first fall attempt didn't take on his fifth steer, he clocked a 15,2 for 64.7 seconds, leaving Allen with a chance to improve his status. Allen never flinched at the opportunity as he wrapped in 11.1 to place for the fourth time of the night at the Lazy E Arena. In . the process he notched the lead in the average with 63,6. Roping Results Page 22 In 1992, Allen led on five head with 87.1, according to NFSR co-announcer Curt Robinson. What does the early lead mean? "That you've got five more and anything can happen," said Allen, who entered the night with $37,201. "It helps to get tapped off and have a good first run. But you have a first one again tomorrow night. "And, it looks like some guys came ready to rope." Cooper, Arnold Felts and Marty Jones were among the "some guys." In the first go, Cooper notched his first NFSR go-rounds wins since winning the ninth and 10th go-rounds in 1990, as he stopped the clock in 12.0.

The 6-foot-4 senior took over the final minute of regulation and overtime, giving OSU a 113-102 victory over the Providence Friars in front of 9,453 fans at the Mabee Center. Thompson matched a career-high 33 points; he nailed a 3-point shot with 41 seconds left in regulation to draw the Cowboys within 88-87, then hit a driving layup with seven seconds to forge an 89-89 tie. After the teams traded baskets to start overtime, Thompson nailed another 3-pointer to make it 94-91, then finished off a 3-point play to make it 97-93 with 3:22 to go. The Friars never got closer.
