Nebraska had fourth and one situations twice in a row with a little over four minutes to play and the Husker fullback came through with just the needed yardage. Measurements were needed both times and both times the nose of the ball was all that was beyond the chain slick. These key plays kept the ball in Husker possession and stifled any last- second victory hopes the (lophers may have envisioned. And at the conclusion of the 82-yard drive and the eight minutes and 15 seconds, Ross nearly came up with his first TD of the young .season. But twistin’ Willie was deni e d once more. Slopfied just snort of the end zone a couple of limes last week against South Dakota State, Ross took a handoff f r o m f'laridge just as the game ended and came within inches of making it. But probably no one hut Willie really cared and it didn't really matter to Willie as the more than 5,0(K) Husker fans eyed the scoreboard, then headed for various rendezvous here Saturday night. .Nebraska fans learned early what their head coach had been talking about all week in expecting the (ioph- ers to abandon their usual linebusting ffKitball for a wide-open running and passing game. Minnesota consistently used wide running plays and [lasses from quarterback Bob S a d e k to his Sfieedy halfbacks Dick llar- ren and Jerry Pelletier in the flat that threatened on several oc(,'asions to go all the way. The (iopher.s clearly shied away from running anything into the huge Nebraska line where huge Iluskers such as Lloyd Voss, Larry Kramer, Bob Brown, John Kirby, Monte Kiffin, Bob Jones, Duncan Drum, John Dervin and Ron .Michka were tending the store. liut while the ,NU line was able to contain the Dofiher i unning game, they didn’t give Minnesota quarterback Sadek many worries with a rush. Only on a few occasions did the Husker forwards penetrate the Minnesota line in pursuit of Sadek. Sadek (:om|)lcted nine of 23 passes, but many of the misses were more a result of loose hands on the part of Gopher receiver or from Husker backs who kept fairly close track of .Minnesotans who wandered among their midst looking for But it was an error In the defensive secondary that gave the Gophers their only score and Husker fans their main shock. .Minnesota took a Claridge punt on its own 29 and in four plays moved to the Husker 45. At this point Sadek .sent f^elletier down- field in .search of open territory and the speedy Gopher halfback was successful. He managed to get behind Dick Callahan and Sadek lofted a long pass into his hands at the 1.5-yard line. Callahan recovered in time to catch Pelletier at the one, but two plays later Sadek sneaked in for the score. When .Mike Reid added the extra point, the Gophers had a 7-0 lead with 7:10 left in the opening quarter. And moments later the rain, that had stopped shortly before game time, started again. It was in this rainy atmosphere that the Huskers brightened what loomed as a dark day for Nebraska fans with the tying touchdown. The Huskers went 36 yards in six plays for the tying tally after Dave Theisen made a fair catch of a short .Minnesota punt to the Gopher 36. Ross ripped right end for .seven, then bolted into the line lor another yard. Fullback Bruce Smith then took over the chores as the Huskers’ alternate line opened holes on the right side of the Gopher line w here all-.America candidate Carl Eller and teammates Larry Hartse and John Rajal were positioned. Smith blasted t h r o u g li holes opened around Eller for bursts of 14, two and four yards, putting the ball at the .Minnesota eight-yard line. Claridge then skirted left end for the TD with I; U remaining in the first quarter. Johnson booted the first of two P.\T kicks to end the scoring until the home run play that Claridge and Jeter brewed up. The Huskers, who compiled a 176-75 rushing yardage advantage, but trailed in passing yardage, 107-89, will undoubtedly spend the coming week trying to work out offensive mistakes that cropped up Saturday.

Me Reynolds' passes also set up the third Rice touchdown that gave the Owls a 210 lead before the Tigers struck late behind a passing attack led by sophomore Pat Screen, i 26-7 victory over Boston who is sot a. Another factor in the Huskers’ favor, according to Warmath. was the experienced depth in the NT' line. “I couldn't tell much difference between the two lines,” he noted. The Gophers’ all-.\meri- can tackle candidate Carl BTler agreed with his coach in discussing the relative | strength of the two Husker I lines. “The only difference I eould tell between the two lines .Nebraska had was that they had different numbers on their Jerseys, ” Eller said.

Providence Steamrollers to a “Nebraska’s line is big and strong and they have eight or nine backs who can go and they don’t stop when you hit them," he said. Gopher quarterback Bob Sadek praised the play of his forward wall in providing pass protection, but noted that one of the reasons Nebraska’s line didn’t g e t* much of a rush on him was because of their pass plays. “Many of our passes were real (juick and this doesn’t give linemen a chance to put much of a rush on you," Sadek said. Sadek noted that he was unable to detect any letdown among the Husker team after the Gophers’ early touchdown. “They (Nebraska) stayed right in there," he observed. Plaver .No.Yds.
