00 Nov 7,1976, lineóla, Neb., SaaAay Joaraal aa4 Itar Cornhuskers Quotes Compiled by Jim Cunningham Linebacker Oete PlUeo On OSU running back Tarry Millar: "He's great. I would say he's like Tony Dorsett and Ricky Bell. I haven't played against them but from what I've seen, I'd say he's like them," Comerback Ted Harvey Comparing his lata, fourth quartar intarcaptlon with a play earliar In tha gama which OSU complatad an routa to its touchdown — "I knew I had to make up for It, On that first one, the reception, I got turned around. The ball was thrown short and I couldn't get back to it. On the interception I saw it was underthrown and I went tor the ball, it felt good. I was thinking, 'don't get beat.' I had to be sure on that one." Split End Chuck Mallto On limping off tha flald following tha touchdown — "I have a hyperextended knee. It hurts whenever I come down on it." On the Cornhuskars' victory — "What can you say. It was a great team effort" Tight End Ken Spaeth On his touchdown racaptlon — "l run a pattern where I go seven yards deep. On this play that took me just into the end zone Vince reads their defense and hits the receiver that's open. On what causad him to gat up slowly aftar tha touchdown — "I just got the wind knocked out of me." On the Cornhuskars' victory — "This is a great win for us We showed a lot of character out there We never gave up. linebacker James Wightman On dafansing tha Oklahoma Stata Vaar offansa — "It's a hard |ob trying to contain runners like that They use a 'rocker step.' It's a step to try and throw your tim'mg off. It's probably tougher against the Veer than any other offense "The coaches tell us If you can beat the linebackers you can beat a defense, so we must have done d pretty good iob today." Punter Randy Lessman On punting against OSU's Cliff Parslay — "I was not concentrating on having a battle with him. I was thinking about it on those first two punts. They felt good. But on that shank late in the fourth quarter, I felt terrible. I think it was the worst punt of my career On that next punt, (a good kick that took the Huskers out of their own territory with less than five minutes remaining) I was really concentrating on it" I-back Richard Berns On playing against Oklahoma State — "The game was not any different than any other Big 8 Game." On his fumble that gave OSU it's last possession of.the game in the last minute of play — "I was a bit down after that one I don't want to get the reputation as a tumbler." On his injury when tackled out of bounds — "I came down on my tail on the first down marker." Comerback Dave Butterfield On the Big 8 race — "This win and Colorado's loss puts us alone at the top but we've got two tough games left Today's hard game isn't going to take anything away from our attitude (or the rest of the season. We'll probably be fired up more because we're back on top." "It was a very typical game against Oklahoma State. Every time we get in against them it's a helluva ball game It was no different today." "We have to be more conscious of the run when we play against a team like Oklahoma State but you can't forget about the pass. It's a reading type defense" Comeback Gives NU Sole League Leadership Hig 8 Standings CoMtrtnc* AM Gam«t lOArt S'a'P 0« anoTia Coicaao Kanvas Kanid'i S'a*e Saturday's Results NiCrasu 14 0* a>'ima S'ate 10 Visioiifi 16 Colorado 7 O«idhooia 49 Kan^as !>*a»e 20 Iowa Sia*a 31.

Nebraska shot 49% in the game, while Colorado hit at a 52't clip The Huskers were hampered by 36 turnovers caused by a full court, man-to- man Colorado press Nicodemus termed the play of five freshmen as most encouraging Nebraska received 33 points from freshmen, with Tietjen and Jeanne Boiler tallying 24 points f<...rado 41 39-10 NPDtdVKa 4 7 34-il Colorado Doni F-Kher 16 BoDOie Bto*i 2 Liva Jottii 12 Gavi* Culler 6 jpan 20 Mu helle Irving i, Kattiy 14 Nebraua T.ptipr. 14 Ha*.ini i Linda JanbbPn 6 Laura Marta Prichard 2 nain, I Jan Crouch 16 Oarcy 6 Sherry Bfinii 9 Jeanne iipi. hrajee 2 Henne Chaney Continued From Page ID Fortunately, for the Huskers, the 16th play was a fumble which middle guard Jeff Pullen recovered. Nebraska had started the game in impressive style, driving to the OSU 14 and two yard lines, yet — because of its errors — was lucky to be trailing by only three at halftime Il didn't appear Nebraska’s fortunes were going to change in the second half. A 41-yard Ferragamo to Dave Shambhn pass helped gel the ball to the OSU 18, but a potential tying field goal by Al Eveland was blocked The next time the Huskers got the ball, a second F’erragamo aerial was picked off. Nebraska got its offense untracked the next chance, however The Huskers covered 75 yards in seven plays — 60 of those yards on three passes to Chuck Malito The last was a spectacular 34-yard over-the- shoulder grab in the corner of the end zone Eveland’s extra point boot put the Huskers on top, 7-3 But not for long. Oklahoma State took the ensuing kickoff, surprised everyone with a 34-yard pass play of its own, then turned things over to hard-running halfback Terry Miller Miller carried on seven of the eight runmng plays in the drive, scoring from 15 yards out on a sudden burst through a goalline defense. Daigle's PAT gave the Cowboys a 10-7 edge. Back came the Huskers. AP Top 20 Scorecard 1. Michigan (8-1) lost to Purdue, 16-14. Nextgamo; Illinois. 2. Pittsburgh (9-0) dot. Army, 37-7. Next game: W.

Nebraska took the kickoff and scored the game's final points on an eight-play drive that covered 57 yards after Richard Bems returned the kickoff from the four to the 43 Ferragamo had four straight completions in that march, the longest a 21-yarder to Malito The most important was one to tight end Ken Spaeth which covered the final six, "I didn’t know if I was in or not,” Spaeth said of his grab at the goalline. "When I went down I saw that orange thing under my feet, (the pylon which is in the end zone), so 1 figured I was okay.” Oklahoma State had one more golden opportunity Nebraska punter Randy Lessman, who had one 62-yard boot, averaged 44 yards despite his only bad effort of the season. He shanked one off the side of his foot It traveled just 10 yards and the Cowboys had the ball at the NU 31 The Black Shirt defense held, however, and Daigle missed a 44-yard field goal attempt With three minutes left in the game, Oklahoma State had the ball at midfield. A clipping penalty had pushed the Cowboys back, and they faced a fourth- and-19 situation. They tried a tricky play, rather than punting, and it backfired. “That really surprised me.” Ferragamo said. The NU quarterback felt that a deep punt might force another Nebraska punt into the wind and give the Cowboys another scoring chance As il turned out, OSU got the chance anyway Bems fumbled with 44 seconds left, but NU cor- nerback Ted Harvey picked off a desperation pass to ice the victory. The partisan red-clad crowd of 76,272 went limp and relaxed for the first time all afternoon. "It's nice to be the only team in first place,” Ferragamo admitted. “but we can’t sit on the lead. We re not going to stop now There’s too much at stake. We’ve got two tough games left to play.” Iowa State at Ames is next The surprising Cyclones are among the fivesome tied for second place in the league standings, and are a clearcut second among the conference teams on a season long basis with an overall 7-2 record. The Huskers came out of the game with a wide assortment of bumps and bruises, but should be at fuU strength for Iowa State. Linebacker Clete Pillen understandably has a sore shoulder after making a record-setting total of 30 tackles, while defensive end Ray PhilUps, I-backs Monte Anthony and Berns all sulfercd back spasms. Linebacker Jim Wightman strained a knee and fullback Dodie Donnell suffered a strained neck. Visitors Views Quar^rback Charile WeatherMe On OSU's fumbla at th# NU thr## a minute before halftime: "We should have gone in 10-0 at the half. It was a bad pitch on my part, it's just one of those things." On the chin strap problem that caused confusion and a britf chango of quartorbacks during an OSU first half drivo: "The rules say you have to have two snaps on each end of the chin strap, I only had one. I've only had one snap since I was a freshman, and this is the first time it's been called." "Coach Osborne was yelling about it to the officials and they were looking all around to see who had just one snap. I tried to hide, but Osborne kept yelling Weatherbie! Weatherbie! The official told me I had to call a time out or sub another player in," "Harold (sub quarterback (Bailey) came in and he had just one snap too, but they didn't call it on him." On whether it hurt (the confusion and delay) the drive OSU was mounting at the time: "I don't think it helped us any, because we were driving pretty good." On OSU's fourth and one situation shortly after he re-entered the game: "I thought I made it but I guess the officials saw it different." On OSU's failure to convert a 10-yard Lessman punt in the fourth quarter into an OSU score: "We should have scored oft the short kick, but we just couldn't move the ball. I tell you what, they (NU) played a good game. Safety Gary Irions On Ken Spaeth's game winning touchdown reception: "He was Kervin s (comerback Milton) assignment, but I broke my assignment to help out When I saw him come off the line of scrimmage across my face, I looked at Ferragamo and he was looking right at him. So I broke my pattern. I said I guess I better go with him, he was going ♦o throw the ball to him, and he did We just didn't get there quick enough. I didn't think he (Spaeth) was in the end zone myself, but we'll see on the films tomorrow." Defensive End Lorenzo Turner Turner had been recruited by Nebraska and signed a Big 8 letter of intent which was later proved invalid. He then signed with OSU: "This game meant a hell of a lot to me. I really wanted to beat those guys. Me and coach Melton (Nebraska coach John) have been having these little feuds where we shake our fingers and say we re going to get each other. I guess I can't get Nebraska any more. our fingers and say we're going tc I guess I can't get Nebraska I take that back We're not out of it yet. we can still come back and win he conference with only two losses. It would make me real happy to sneak past Nebraska and win the title. I'd love to send a letter to coach Melton when it's all over." Defensive teckle PkiUp Dokes "We're not out of it by any means. There is no dominant team in the Big 8 anymore. I think just about any Big 8 team can go to another conference and win it.' On Nebraska's passing success: They hurt us with so much play action on their passes. He (Vince Ferragamo) would hold us with the fakes, and we would have to strip the backs to find out it they had the ball. By that time, he had the passes oft." ^ "Missouri was more physical than Nebraska, but Bob Lingentelter was plenty physical against me. He'll probably go high in the pro draft. But I think I will, too." Running back Terry Miller On his constant confrontations with NU linebacker Clete Pillen; "He's a good linebacker. He was always standing right in the hole, so there wasn't much I could do but meet up with him. "Nebraska has got a great defense. But we were still able to move the ball on the ground. We've moved it on the ground against a lot of good defenses this year." Safety Pete Coppola On the NU passing game: "Personally I thought he (Ferragamo) is the best m the Big 8 He can do the most and he can run a club the best. I thought he was the best last year" "We knew we were in for a rough day. We expected them to throw a little more out patterns to the strong side, but they didn t." Comerback Willie Lester On the NU pass gama: "They (NU) have pretty good receivers. Average speed Average quarterback." Comerback Milton Kirven Beaten for both touchdown passes: I don't know my name today." OPBN DAILY 10-10 SUNDAY JO SUN., MON., TUES., WED.
