(UPI) — Miasouri coach Dan Devine admitted he made the wrong decision in taking a one point conversion after a fourth quarter touchdown to give the Tigers a 10-10 tie with Iowa State Saturday.

Oklahoma, ranked 10th nationally after winning four for; new coach Jim Mackenzie, was beaten into submission by a vicious Irish defense.

When Parseghian pulled out his starters after Notre Dame’s fifth touchdown late in the third, Oklahoma had gained only 91 yards total offense.

We came into the game pretty well battered but rose to the occasion.” Iowa State quarterback Tim Van Galder said the Cyclones’ defense “played well but our offense didn’t do so well.” “I think this game is going to hurt Missouri,” Van Galder said. “They haven’t played any of the top teams yet, and Oklahoma had the best game against us.” Stapleton priased Weber for his touchdown catch. “Before that catch I thought we had it won. That kid made a heck of a catch,” Stapleton said. Defensive back Larry Carwell, who battled Webber for the ball, agreed with Stapleton, saying, “I don’t know how he (Weber) caught the ball.

Oklahoma got to the Notre Dame 36 in the first quarter but a pass interception by Jim Lynch stopped the drive. In the fourth quarter, the Sooners made it to the 32 but two plays later that drive ended with another interception. Notre Dame played the second half without split end Jim Seymour, injured late in the first half just before a 32-yard field goal by Joe Azzaro gave Notre Dame a 17-0 lead.

Boulder, Colo.—An estimated 15,000 Nebraska football fans were in the vicinity of Denver and Boulder Saturday as their Huskers played Colorado. At least, they are THEIR Huskers as long as they win. A loss can easily change talk from “our team” too “the team’* as anyone who has observed habits of sports fan- dom can readily explain. Some of these fans were even ready to turn “their” team back to someone else without a loss, simply because every play had not been run to perfection in the first five wins. Loyal Fans in Lincoln But while the 15,000 fans who followed the Huskers to Colorado were showing their loyalty by being here, a much smaller group of fans with just as much, or more, loyalty remained in Lincoln—not by choice, however. And we are not talking about those unfortunates who were not able to get tickets for the contest. We, ratlier, are talking about a group of youngsters at the Lincoln Orthopedic Hospital. These youngsters are well aware of the problems the Huskers had in winning the first five games, but they won. These youngsters know what it means to drop a football because they may have trouble holding a pencil. They know how Larry Wachholtz feels when a pass recover gets behind him, because these youngsters had the misfortune of having someone get behind them. These youngsters are different than other youngsters in the city, not in their hearts or in their desires or loves but only in that your youngster, who is rooting io hard each week for Wayne Meylan or Bob Churchich, can dream of some day playing for Nebraska. These youngsters can’t even dreani that because they know they will never have that opportunity. Still Hiisker Rooters But this has not deterred them from theh* staunch support of the Huskers and we’ll bet right now that if hard times ever do hit the Huskers and tiiey lose three, four or five games, these youngsters will be the last to jump off the ship. . , J * These youngsters got together this week and wrote a letter to the Husker squad which one assistant coach has carried in his pocket all week. The letter: **You don’t know bow much It does for us here at the hospital when we hear you play each week. We know the games have been close at times and things jurt go right every Saturday. WeU, things don’t go right with us here at the hospital all the time either. “But each day looks brighter and we can hardly wait to hear Big Red come through each Saturday. So we wish you all the luck in your next five games and we know you can win. “Meanwhile, when you are not too busy, we would sure appreciate a visit from our Big Red team. “We love you.” The letter was signed by approximately 25 patients at the Lincoln Orthopedic Hospital. • _ Mississippi Rolls Past Houston First Half To Buffs Statisticfl First dowtu ......................15 Ru«htnc yardaae ...................W Parsing yardajre ...................222 Paases ...................1301 PasM intercepted bar ..........1 first Notre Dame touch- Fun^i«« io«t 2 ^ Yards peitalized ...................46 Houslea Mi^t. 13 17« 118 7-15 7 7-39 Memphis, Tenn. ^Missis- plunge midway through i.. e, takes into 17 points in the first .«•*» coasted Tennessee Rolls, 29-17 Statistin •a.

Actually, Nebraska had returned to that state in the third period as the Buffs, who had been so awesome in the first half, had only one serious threat. That was when the Buffs moved to the Nebraska 34 only to die when Kaye Carstens aiid M a r v Mueller made super saves in t h e secondary. And it was in that third period that the NU offense found itself, going from its 28 all the way to the one where Churchich was halted on the fourth down by Hale Irwin, Dick Anderson and Kerry Mottl. That drive, too, was featured by som^ aerial antics by Churchich, who pitched 21 to Morrison and 20 to Miles Kimmel. At the half you could have purchased Nebraska’s chances with one of their lucky pennies. For after an exchange of breaks gave each team a cheap touchdown in the first quarter, the Buffs took complete command. With Kelly, a dynamic manipulator on the rollout and keeper, engineering things Colorado stormed for two second quarter touchdowns. In the first one, at the outset of the second period, Colorado marched 80 yards in 16 plays. And if anybody here hadn’t seen Kelly, he was sound asleep. The slick Junior ran for 48 yards and passed for 22 more in the big drive, finally sending Wilmer Cooks into the end zone from a yard away with 9:27 left in the period. When John Farler c o n- verted Colorado was on top, 13-7, and had more momentum than a runaway locomotive. The Buffs got more. On their next possession the Buffs mov^ 56 yards in seven plays. Kelly was still around. He ran for 11 ol tt and passed for 29 more, the 29 all coming on the payoff pitch to Larry Plantz who outran Carstens into the corner of the end zone. The Buffs tried a f a k e kick and went for two but fizzled when Wachholtz blocked him out of bounds. There was 3:39 left in the half. The two first touchdowns were a standoff in many ways. NU got its break when Charles Greer fumbled a punt and Dick Davis recovered at the Colorado 16. Tatman ran for two and Churchich passed to Gregory for the final 14 yards and a touchdown. Wachholtz converted with 10:26 to play. Colorado’s came when Ron Scott recovered a Churchich fumble at the Nebraska 16. Kelly ran for eight then William Harris, Kelly and Cooks hammered away until Cooks went in from the two. Except for that break, Nebraska never got out of its territory in the first half. And the Buffs were seldom stopped. The ifs for both teams eouldn*t be listed in a 15- volume works, but in the end it was what so often happens, a game of halves. The Buffs, a victim of Oklahoma State earlier, now have two losses in the Big Eight and stand 3-3 on the year while the seventh- ranked Cornhuskers will take a 6-0 record into the regionally televised gam# with Missouri Saturday.
