Huskers Out to Win First Game in Boulder Since ’ 54 By DICK BECKER Denver, Colo. — Coach Bob Devaney. a favorite of football fans in this area from his days at Wyoming, brought his undefeated University of Nebraska team to town Friday. geared for battle with the Colorado Buffaloes at nearbv Boulder Saturday. Nebraska hasn’t won at Boulder since 1954 but the Cornhuskers are favored to spoil the Buffs’ Homecoming this time. Some 35.000 fans are expected at Folsom Field to witness the Huskers' awesome offense against Colorado’s wide-open pro-type passing attack. CU's defending Big 8 champions have been decimated by NCAA and conference punishment for recruiting violations. Bud Davis, who took over when Coach Sonny Grandeli us was fired, has sent the Buffs to the air, using as many as 40 passes in a single game. And last week the Buffs surprised Iowa State wit! a ground march for their first touchdown in a game that wound up as a 57-19 win for the Cyclones. The Buffs have forgotten this one. But Nebraska has even higher stakes to play for. The Cornhuskers have won 5, assuring them of their best start since 1933. If they can win this one, they'll have hit 6 wins, a high mark for the school since the Rose Bowl team of 940 had an 8-2 record and the 1954 team finished 6-5. And this win is a must if Devanevs’ charges are to Ringnecks Under Fire ... On Saturday By PETE CZl’RA The gullies, weed patches, cornfields, milo fields, and any other spot frequented by pheasants will find new occupants at sunrise Saturday morning. At the first peek of the sun, hunters will launch the nation's longest ringneck season here in Nebraska—SH days.

Prime pheasant areas, according to reports from the Game Commission, are in the Central areas of the state and along the southern tier of counties. Mel Steen, Game Commission director cautions hunters to obtain permission from landowners before hunting on private lands. An influx of non-resident hunters is expected to bulge the army of resident sportsmen. The fame of Nebraska’s liberal season length and bag limits has attracted many out- of-state hunters.

In other Big Eight games, Nebraska is expected to romp past Colorado at Boulder, Oklahoma should have an easy time with Kansas State at Norman and Kansas rates a narrow edge over Oklahoma S t a t e at Stillwater. Coach Jack Mitchell of Kansas praised the Cowboy squad and expressed concern for his team’s mental condition. “We were as high as we’ve ever been for the Oklahoma game and lost,” Mitchell said. “I think our boys can bounce back, but sometimes players go flat after a big effort—you never know “ upon the weather, too, says Lloyd Vance, chief of Game Division. A high wind could find the birds squatting and hiding instead of moving about in normal pattern, informs Vance. However, all of the shooting won’t be at ringnecks alone. Saturday finds the quail season opening, too. Pheasant season will continue through Jan. 20, 1963. Daily hag limit is 4 roosters and possession 16. t^uail hunters will have two zones to hunt in — northern and southern area. Rosenstoek Will Head *63 (doves A new fight site and new chairman were named Thursday night for Lincoln’s 1963 Golden Gloves program. Wes Rosenstock is the new chairman and the bouts will be held Feb. 1-2 at the Fairgrounds 4-H arena. Both announcements came from John Kahler, overall athletic committee chairman for Lincoln’s American Legion Post No. 3. Six teams are already training toward the Southeast Nebraska District competition. Lincoln boasts 3 teams with one each in Syracuse, Falls City and Fair bury. Rosenstock said at least one and possibly two big smokers are being planned prior to the district tourney. They too will be held at the 4-H building. keep alive Big 8 champion ship and Orange Bowl aspirations After this contest the Buskers face Missouri, Kans a s, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Nebraska will operate without fullback Bill «Thunder» Thornton a g a i n this week The All-Big 8 star of last v e a r hasn’t been able to shake a leg injury suffered against Iowa State 3 weeks ago. This will keep the offensive burden on quarterback Dennis Claridge who has r u n and passed the Huskers to the 7th best offensive record in the nation. Nebraska's pass yardage of 705 is just short of Colorado’s 734 yards but the Huskers have thrown just 87 times and completed 48 while the Buffs' have tossed 147 and hit 70. It is obvious that pass defense will play a key m the game and the Cornhuskers are being reminded often of Kansas State’s 86-yard touchdown pass play on the Wildcats first play last week. The Wildcat passing threw Nebraska out of the top 10 rankings in pass defense nationally. The Huskers were scheduled for a short workout at Boulder Friday afternoon and an over-night stay in Denver.

And the Tigers proved they have a strong attack with 413’ yards last week against Oklahoma State. Halfback Johnny Roland is the nation’s No. 3 rusher with 518 yards. The other starting Tiger halfback, Bill Tobin, will be restricted to part-time duty by an ankle sprain. Iowa State hasn’t beaten the Tigers since 1955.
