The Missouri Tigers refused to believe it. The Bruins finally showed them, but it was a struggle against the “Show-Me” boys of Missouri all the way. Missouri Rose Bowl quarterback Gary Beban and his dazzling mate, halfback Mel Farr, were slow in getting the Bruins started.

Burris completed 13 of 23 passes for 213 yards while erasing the old record he set last year when he threw four touchdown passes against Kentucky. Backed by a tough defense that allowed OSU only one down in the first half, Houston struck quickly for its third straight victory. Burris capped long first period d r i v e s of 77 and 74 yards by finding Tom Beers in the end zone on passes that covered 15 and 5 yards. The big Cougar quarterback then boosted Houston to a 21-0 halftime lead by winding up a four-play 48-yard second period drive with a 5-yard scoring pass to Dick Post. A pair of third period drives covered 41 and 80 yards and Burris ended them with a 17- yard pass to Beers and a 48- yarder to Ken Herbert. OSU, alternating three sophomore quarterbacks, picked up a safety in the third period but did not manage a drive longer than 19 yards until the final period. .Ml three quarterbacks shared tlje passing duties as the Cowpokes, trailing 32-2, struck for 63 yards and their lone touchdown. The Pokes had a first down on the two but three plays gained nothing and Mike zVrnold had to pass to Tony Sellari on fourth down for the score. Two intt'rceptiuns of Burris passes had ¿ven Oklahoma State cpportunitles in the first half but the Houston defense was too much for the Cowpokes. Terry Brown and Harry Cheatwood, with runs of 31 and 19 yards, returned the interceptions to the Houston 12 and 37. The drives ended on the 20 and 48-yard lines. Okla.

Iowa — Nebraska football coach Bob Devaney made it clear that he was not offering alibis, nor was he indicating that he was satisfied with the Husker offense, but he did think he had a possible answer. As is normally the case, fans were more concerned with the offeote (or lack of H) than were the coaches, whose livelihood depends on such things. The coaches were concerned, but not to the same degree and not with the same' things that fans worried about, especially those who happened to lose money because the Huskers didn’t beat the point spread in either of their first tw'o games. Little Things Cause Concern Coaches* concern for touchdowns goes little farther than whether they have scored more than the opposing team. The main concern of Husker coaches with the NU offense revolved more around the little things. “We are bothered by our inability to pick up the needed yardage when we have third or fourth down and a couple of yards to go,” Devaney explains. “That is of more concern to us than whether we win by three or four touchdowns.** Devaney has expressed confidence the past week that his rushing offense, a primary concern of Husker faithful, would begin rolling soon and offers some explanations as to why it hadn’t thus far. Recalls Michigan State Days ‘We are not satisfied with our offensive quickness and our tackles lack experience, both items which have hurt us,’’ Devaney begins. Devaney then goes back to his assistant coaching days at Michigan State for a possible explanation. a final score in the last minutes of the game as the Bruins pulled it out 24-15. This was the most number of points scored against a Missouri team since 1959 when Oklahoma beat them 394). It was a strange game played under a bright sun and before 32,649 at Memorial Coliseum and a national television audience. The first half was a dull one. The second half was riotous with the most sensational play a 20-yard touchdown run by 281-pound Missouri defensive end Russ Washington after he blocked a Bruin punt. There was a total of seven pass interceptions in the game. UCJLA’s Beban had three stolen Missouri’s Gary Kombrink gave away four. Another Gary -- Grossnickle by name—accounted for two Missouri interceptions and got his name into print by playing a whale of a defensive game. Grossnickle smashed a fourth down Beban pass almost in the end zone when the Bruins were knocking at t h e touchdown door late in the second quarter.

WV—Heavily favoreil Colorado, its offense sputtering most of the day, slipped past Kansas State 10-0 Saturday before a Band Day crowd of 35,000 . The favored Buffaloes got an offensive spark from slotback John F a r 1 e r to score their lone touchdown in the second period. Farler raced 40 yards on a reverse to move the baU to the Kansas State 32. The Buffaloes scored from there in two plays, as quarterback Bernie McCall passed to end Larry Plantz on the 11, from w^here fullback W i 1 m e r Cooke plunged into the end zone on the next play. There were just 38 seconds gone in the second quarter as sophomre linebacker Dave Bartelt added the extra point. Bartelt made it 104) with a 22-yard field goal with 4:55 gone in the fourth quarter. Kansas State’s deepest penetration came following the field goal, but a Vic Castillo pass was intercepted by Colorado’s Charley Gree at the Buffalo 40. For the most part of the day it was a case of Cblo- rado frustration against a plucky K-State defense and a pesky Wildcat passing attack triggered by Castillo. The Buffaloes failed to cash in on three excellent scoring opportunities between their touchdown and field goal. K-State stopped McCall on a fourth and two situation at the Wildcat 3 midway through the second period. Linebacker Danny Lankas stopped another Buffalo bid which bad reached the K-State 12 eariy in the third period, as he intercepted a McCall third down pass. On the first play of t h e fourth quarter McCall fumbled on a first down play at the Wildcat five and K- State linebacker Lon Austin recovered.

The Jayhawks, mashing Minnesota’s running game, forced the Gophers to turn to the left-handed Carlson’s passing but it was not enough to overcome the Kansas ground attack. Kansas sent halfback Don Shanklin and John Jackson ripping through the Minnesota line for consistent gains on touchdown drives of 84 yards in the first quarter and 80 yards late in the third period and early in the fourth. The Hawks’ margin <jf victory, however, came on quarterback Dave Bouda’s 26-yard field goal with 18 seconds left in the first quarter. Minnesota’s running quarterback, Curt Wilson, couldn’t move the Gophers and Carlson came on In the second quarter to hit f i v e straight passes in a 59-yard scoring drive. Carlson passed nine yards to Ken Last for a touchdown that cut Kansas* halftime margin to 10-7. Then Carlson completed four of five passes and ran for 35 yards on two carries to spark Minnesota’s 64- yard scoring drive in t h e fourth quarter. Carlson passed two yards to Chet Anderson for the score, Anderson making the catch after a Kansas defender batted the ball into the air. Kansas slashed 84 yards in 11 plays the first time it had the haU, scoring on Shanklln’s seven-yard ran with a pitchout. The next time the Hawks bad possession, they marched 48 yards to set up Bouda’s field goal. Midway through the third period, Kansas launched its second touchdown drive. Bob Skahan’s 22 yard pass to Jeff Elias was the big gainer, and Thermus Butler rammed over for the score from a foot out.

After all, a year ago, it was the defense that was having problems. And he and his staff managed to correct that situation.

It must be a credit to the Husker squad that they were able to bounce back to squeak out the narrow win after being turned baok time after time by penalties, fumbles and intercepted passes. Nebraska marched 59 yards the first time it had the ball to the Iowa State nine and on the next play, Wilson scored. But Charlie Winters was caught in motion illegally and the TD was nullified. The Huskers had to settle for a Larry Wachholtz field goal from the 21 with 6:57 left in the first half for the first score. The next time they got the ball, the Huskers moved from their own 23 to the Iowa State 21 before being stopped again, and again Wachholtz’ toe put NU on the scoreboard, this time from the 28 with 2:30 left in the first quarter for a 6-0 lead. The big play in the second drive was a pass from Churchich to Ron Kirkland that covered 44 yards. Kirkland w'as hurt later in the contest and could be out for the season. Nebraska also got to the Iowa State 16 in the secoifd quarter without scoring and this time Wachholtz’ field goal attempt was wide from the 23 . .\nother third quarter drive from the Nebraska 14 to the Iowa State 27 boosted the yardage total, but did nothing for the figures on the scoreboard. Again it was a pass play, from Churchich to Wilson that covered 38 yards, that gobbled up most of the yardage. This march was halted at the Cyclone 22 after Churchich had hit Rlchnafsky with a five-yard pass, but the NT^ end fumbled and Iowa State recovered. Another case of big yardage, but no points came just before Wilson’s deciding gallop. This one went from the NU 34 to the ISU 27 before Churchich fumbled. Iowa State’s only score came against the Husker offense, on a pass interception with Don Graves picking off a Churchich pass at the Nebraska 16 and carrying it into the end zone Georgia a hard-earned footbail victory over winless South Carolina Saturday: night. i Geoi i^B 8 0 9 7—7 South Carrtin* 0 0 0 0-0 GA.—Moure 6 run (Ktter kick) Attendance 31,141.

With the exception of the two interceptions, one could find little wrong with Churchich’s passing as he hit 16 of 27 attempts for 203 yards, a performance that puts him within one yard of Dennis Claridge’s NU career record of 1,733 yards and with five completions of Claridge’s career mark of 125. Another high point in the NU win was the ability to come up with the big play on third and fourth downs. On nine occasions, i n c 1 u ding the key fourth down play by Critchlow that set up Wilson’s TD, the Huskers came up with the needed first down yardage in these situations. This was something that had been botlieiing NU coaches more than the inability to run away from Texas Christian and Utah State. On a third and two at the ISU 44, Tatman gained three; on a third and five at the NU 26, Churchich hit Wilson for 13; on a third and one at the IW 21, Churchich picked up three; on a third and three at the NU 20, Critchlow got the needed three; on a third and six at the NU 49, Churchich hit Morrison for 12; on a third and two at the ISU 31, Critchlow got four; on a fourth and two at the ISU 38, Critchlow gained two; and on a third and five at the NU 44, Wilson ran for 17.
