1, Devaney said whe! pressed about national rankings. I would put Oklahoma No. 2 and maybe Colorado should be No. 3. All three are from the powerful Big Eight Conference.

Oklahoma, loser only to the Huskers, smashed Alabamas cross-state rival, Auburn, 20-22 in the Sugar Bowl. Colorado decked Houston in the Bluebonnet Bowl and fell only to Nebraska and Oklahoma. TJie Big Eight is the tough-e conference no contest, said massive Husker defensive lineman Rich Glover. -Nebraska is, of course, on top with Oklahoma second and Colorado definitely third. Johnny Rodgers, who broke a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown, said, It started slowly, but then opened up and all I could see between me and the goal was that green carpet.

Devaney said the Orange Bowl triumph was probably our most important victory ever, but the Oklahoma game on Thanksgiving had to be more exciting. Devaneys blood-red shirt dripped from the victory shower and newsmen turned the dressing room into college football's answer to the running of the bulls. Well, this makes sure I take at least one bath every the dripping Devaney. when reminded, he added that Oh, yeah, I got a little wet after the Oklahoma game, too.

Linebacker Bob Temo set up the touchdown when he recovered Alabama fullback Steve Bisceglias fumble on the Crimson Tides four yard line. Nebraska drove to the Alabama two a few moments later but an offside penalty stopped the drive and Sanger missed on a 20-yard field goal try. Alabama, frustrated by Nebraskas ferocious defensive line led by Rich Glover, managed only five first downs in the first half. The Tide never went deeper than the Nebraska 37.

Trailing 28-0, Alabama kicked off to Nebraska to open the second half, held the Cornhuskers and then drove to the Nebraska 12 but defensive back Joe Blahak intercepted a Terry Davis pass in the end zone and halted Alabamas deepest drive. Alabama held again and then launched a 55-yard march that ended with quar-t a Terry Davis who had runs of 28 and 14 yards on the drive scoring on a fourth and three situation with 5:40 left in the quarter. An attempt to run the extra point failed and left the Tide trailing 28-6.

Continued from 1st Sports Page covered this.

Tonight, he added. Tagge quarterbacked the Nebraska team superbly and the defensive forces, led by middle guard Rich Glover, stopped Alabamas highly touted Johnny Musso cold. I guess we hit them a little too tough and a little too quick, Glover said. As far as I am concerned, the pressure was off after we beat Oklahoma 35-31. Devaney said he would rate Oklahoma, winners over Auburn in the Sugar Bowl, as No.

2. It was the 32nd game without a defeat and the 23rd straight victory for the massive Midwesterners, who won the national title in 197C and swept past 13 foes in marching through a second straight perfect season. It was one of the worst beatings in the 27-year coaching career of Paul Bear Bryant, wtoose 211 victories are the most of any active college coach. The Associated Press final poll to determine the national champion will be conducted tomorrow, but there seemed no real challenger to Nebraska after previously unbeaten Michigans 13-12 loss to Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Nebraskas massive, mus-' cled defenders, with a front line averaging 236 pounds, stopped Alabamas vaunted into a cascade of touchdowns.

Four came within 8 minutes, 12 seconds the first half. The tragic goat of this turn of events was an Alabama defensive halfback, Steve Williams, whose career was in jeopardy after he accidentally shot himself in the chest last fall. Nebraska jumped to a 14-0 first quarter lead on a 77-yard punt return by Johnny Rodgers and a two-yard plunge by Jeff Kinney. The Cornhuskers i st touchdown was set up by a pass interference call against Alabamas Steve Williams. Nebraska had a first down on the Alabama 30 when Steve Tagge faded back and threw a pass to Woody Cox who was hit by Williams on the two.

Kinney scored on the next play and Rich Sangers kick was wide. Alabama couldnt move the ball and kicked. Rodgers who sidestepped three would-be tacklers and raced 77 yards up the right sideline. Tagge hit Maury Damkroger for a two-point conversion to make it 14-0. Nebraska quickly upped its 14-0 first quarter lead when Williams fumbled the kickoff that opened the second quarter.

He dropped the ball on the Alabama 27 after being hit bycornerback Randy Borg. Six plays later Tagge bulled his way over on a fourth and inches situation.
