^Old Look ’ NU Hoping to Regain Old Form By VIRGIL PARKER A University of Nebraska football team, which bad the longest winramg streak In the school’s history snapped by UCLA last ^veekend, will be out to |?et another string started Saturday afternoon against opening home game foe Texas A&M. 3mml S ports J Jncoln, i\eb., Friday, Sept. 13,1972 25 Jerry List Huskers’ Tight End Coach B<rt» Devaney's two- time defending national champions have a 1:30 kickoff date against the Aggies in Memorial Stadium. The Ooamhuskers, wtw dropped their first game in 33 starts last Saturday night on (he west coast, will make their rebounding effort with the same starting lineup that dropf^ a last-SK»nd 20-17 decision to UCLA. “The surest way to lose a second game would be to make a bunch of ds^stic changes,” Devaney said earlier m the week. “We’re going to .stick with the fellows who have demonstrated they are the best to get the job done.” Junior offensive tackle A1 Austin from Lkrcoln, who did not make the west coast trip because of a foot injury, has recovered aiKl is expected to see duty behind starter Marv Crenshaw Saturday. That is likely to be the only major change. Defensive end Willie Harper sustained the most serious injury in the UCLA fray. Though missing early practices this week because of elbow damage. Harper is expected to be ready for duty. Sensational slotback .lolwiiv Rodgers has soai limited work this week because of recurring trouble with a bleeding ulcer, but he too is slated for fulltime action against A&M. The visitors, with new coach Emory Bollard at the helm, swamped Wichita State, 36-13. in their 1972 debut last weekend. The A®?ies rolled to 21 first downs, tying a school record with their newly installed wisWbooe oiffense. Bellard, when a Texas distant coach in 1968, is credited with devising the attack. Texas went on to use the formation to claim a record four straight Southwest (kmference champi«i.shi|^. The clash will pit two highly touted defensive units. Nebraska had trouble sustaining a drive against A&M last fall, but claimed a .14*7 victory by way of the “big play,” The Cornhus’ksrs scored on a 67-yard run from scrimmage by fullback Bill Olds, a 9^yord kickoff return by Rockers, a 32-yard pass from Jerry Tagge to Rodgers, and a 95->Tard pass interceptiw return by Dill Kosch, “They are hard* hitters.” Devawy assures of the A&.M defense. “One pro scout tel'.s me they are the best team in the Southwest, and thsit includes Texas and Arkansas.” It will be the fifth meeting between the two schools. All four provious games were pla^od in Lincoln, with Nebraska winning three, 13-9 in 19,*M) and 14-0 in 1%9 in addition to last fall’s 34-7 triumph, while the Aggies claimed a 27-0 win in 1955. The game will est^lish a Memorial Stadium record crowd. A new south end zone expansion of the stadium has pushed capacity nesr the 76,000 mark.

LOUIS (AP) Former amatear king Deane Beman has a one-stroke edge in the $150,000 Greater St. Louis Golf Classic with action likely to get even hotter before the week’s out. Right behind the diminutive Beman in the Professional Golfers Association event is garrulous Lee Trevino, who Thursday matched a flock of six Beman birdies but also three putted for a bogey. Beman fired a six-under-par 66 over the 6.544-yard, par-70 .Norwood Hills Country Club layout with Trevino, the tour’s second-le^ing money winner, lotting over his shoulder at 33-82--^. Alone in third place at 333.3— 66 was seooml-year tour player Chuck Thorpe, who .lit 17 straight greens in regulation strokes after bogeying the first hole. A cluster of pliers tied at 67 for fourtti place numbered veterans Bob Goalby, Chi Chi Rodriguez ami Ken Still with tour ymmgsiero David Glenz, Ben Kem and Hubert Green. Beman, twice the winner of the U.S. Amateur and once chiampion of the British Amateur, displayed a remarkable irons game and could have been lower than his 32-32—64 with better putting. In addition to his six birdies he was within range of busting par on 10 holes but missed four putts within eight feet, missed three from medium range and left 20-fbot putt an inch and a half ^ort. “I didn’t really have a good driving round,” the 34-year-oId, sixth-season pro said. I n reference to putts that stopped short, he added, “Give me a fooit and maybe I would have had a 56 or a 58.” Both Beman and the evertalkative Trevino teed off after rains in the morning delayed the start 36 minutes and hampered most of the early starters.

Giants 7 Miami 21 New Orleans 3 Buffalo 3 Pittsburgh 17San Diego Monday 7 Washington BY GARY SEACREST Last Saturday Doane’s offense shined in a 24-14 victory over powerful Yankton (S.D.). This week Doane’s offense will be literally on crutches when the Tigers meet Nebraska Wesleyan Saturday at 7:30 p.m. 0. N. Magee Stadium. Sophomore running back Floyd Gutllory scored all 24 of Doane’s points last week as he ran for three touchdowns and kicked three extra points and a 35-yard field goal. But Guillory broke a small bone m hi.s ankle in the fourth quarter of the Yankton game. The possibility now exists that Guillory might be out for the season. “He might be ready in 4-6 weeks,” Doane heatl coach Ray Best said. “But if he can’t roundi back into shape we think we can get a hardship ruling so he won’t lose a year of eligibility.” How will Guillory’s injury- affect Doane�� “His injury could fire the team up,” Best said. “But we’ll sure have to work harder since Guillory is going to be a tough man t o replace.” However, the Doane defense, which has 10 starters returning from last year, is healthy and ready. Best said his defense was “as good in the first game against Yankton as at the end of last year.” Saturday’s game could be a low-scoring contest since Wesleyan also has a highly touted defense. In Wesleyan’s 19-0 victory over Bethel (Kan.) College, the Plainsmen held Bethel to just two first downs rushing and 35 net yards on offense. Saturday’s game features the two top teams in last year’.s Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference race. Doane won the conference title last year while Wesleyan finished in a tie for second. However, Wesleyan, which enters the game as an underdog, hasn’t beaten Doane in six years. Plainsmen head coach Harold Chaffee aKimits it will be difficnit to stop Doane’s winning streak. “Doane is always a physical club,” he said. “They’re big and they have a lot of veterans returning.” In another local college game, Concordia Teachers College opens its seasim at home Saturday at 2 p.m. against Concordia of St. Paul, Minn. Last year was the first time the two teams ever met and the Seward club walked off with a 28-6 victory. Hasllngs Midland Nab.

Viren, who won both the 5.000 and 10,000 meters at Munich, clipped two-tenths of a second off the world record set six years ago by Ron Clarke of Australia. Steve Preffwitaine of Coo.s Bay, Ore.. who had been expected to go against Viren, did not run. England’s Dave Bedford wa.s a distant second to Viren in 13:30.0. Viren, who broke the 10,000-meter record held by Clarke in the Olympics, also is the record-holder in the two- mile run. His next goal is the 3.000 meters, where he’ll have a brand new mark to shoot for. Belgium’s Emil Puttemanns, running in an international meet in A a h u s, Denmark, clipped two full seconds off Kip Keino’s world record by running the 3,000 meters in 7:37.6. “I have been told Finland’s Lasse Viren would be going for a crack at the record, so I decided to go all out myself in an attempt to thwart his plans,” said Puttemanns, the silver medalist behind Viren in the 10,000 meters at Munich. “And I did—though he might lower the record again.” Viren is expected to take a crack at the 3,000-meter mark in the near future, either Sunday at Malmoe, Sweden or Wednesday at Oulu. Finland. Wigmar Peterson of Denmark set a quick early pace for Puttemann.s, who took over after 800 meters and led the rest of the way. Dane Ole Hjort was second in 8:27.2.
