The Sooners would h a v e been faced with a first and 15 situation deep in their own territory had Kennedy elected to take the penalty. However. Kennedy declined, giving Oklahoma a second down and 9 situation on the 28. “That was definitely .i wrong call.” Devaney noted. “He I Kennedy) wanted to take the down—I don’t know how it was explained to him. It didn’t hurt us any. but we would have rather had the penalty.” Kennedy cxi)lained h i s reasoning by saying. “It was only half the distance to the goal, blither first and 15 or second and nine, and we thought we could hold them.” Devaney cited Harry VVIl- ★ ★ ★ Displays Three Large Banners Three banners w e r e displayed prominently at Memorial Stadium Thursday. A banner from the Nebraska Centennial Commission welcoming NBC was displayed at the south end of the East Stadium.

The Sooners won the toss before the game and chose to take the 10 miles per hour wind and defend the north goal. Nebraska, with the option at the second half, elected to receive. son and Charlie Winters as the outstanding Huskers in the game. “That run Winters made was real tough,’’ the eoaeh praised, noting the husk y sophomore's touchdown jannt. “He w' a s hit.” Wilson gamed 160 yards on thi' grouad. causing Do- \aney to remark. “He would ha\e to be the most out- sianding player in tlie game. 1 think this would have to be his best day.” Devaney praised the current edition ot the Corn- huskers as “the best team we’\e had. It’s got m ore depth and overall talent than the 1964 team.” Its also the only one that’s w o n 10 games. “1 want to give Oklahoma a lot of credit.” Devaney continued. “They hit us hard and played good against us. “They made it real tough for us on the inside. They played a little differently on defense than they have all year.” One of three new plays used by the Huskers Thursday was a double reverse with end Freeman W bite coming up witii the ball. It was only used once, and it only gained two yards. “We should have saved it for posterity,” Devaney quipped. White added, “We had our blockers pull to t h e wrong side.” The Huskers have been practicing the play throughout the season, the 6-5 senior end confided. OU Bruised, Battered, Disappointed . . .

Left halfback Ben Hart was slowed by a bruised instep and defensive standout Carl McAdams irritated the ankle injury which had kept him from playing against Missouri. Injuries also slowed Oklahoma’s starting offensive right guard Bob Vardeman, tackle Mike Burns, and sophomore halfback Ron Shotts. Several of the Sooners expressed praise for Nebraska. Coach Jones summed it up simply, remarking, “Nebraska is big and strong and has a lot of fine football players.” Ben Hart likewise was impressed with the Cornhuskers, noting, “Nebraska is a real good representative for our conference.” Hart had praise for several Nebraska players. Of Harry Wilson, he remarked, “That guy’s devastating.” Hart was similarly impressed with Tony Jeter, Freeman White, and Charlie Winters, along with Wilson, on offense. Defensively Hart cited Mike Kennedy, Ted Vactor, and Langston Coleman. Offensive captain Larry Brown said, “We fought them real good, but our backfield’s pretty butchered up. Comparing Nebraska and Missouri, Brown felt “the two are completely different ball teams with Missouri faster but Nebraska more powerful. Cagie agreed, noting, “Nebraska is bigger and stronger but Missouri is a lot quicker.” Senkbeil, Meylan Lead Nebraska Black Shiits Linebacker Lynn Senkbeil and middle guard Wayne Meylan led Nebraska tacklers in Thursday’s win over Oklahoma.
