By Thunder! | J By HAL BROWN There was very little ju bilation in the Nebraska dressing room such as one would expect to find after a 14-0 victory. The Huskers gridders naturally were happy over the win against Oklahoma State, but they had more important things on their minds than a celebration. There w'as the sobering thought of facing Oklahoma next Saturday in a showdown Big 8 battle. The players made it evi- bRE$.SIM.G ROOM dent that they were looking forward to the contest at Norman, and were quick to point out that they were making t h e trip for only one purpose—to win. Willie Ross about summed up the feeling of the Huskers who had just won their 8th game against only one loss when he said: “No one has to w'orry about getting hurt, because if we don’t win it’s all over. There’s nothing to do, but go out and give it all we’ve got.” Dennis Claridge said the squad had been looking forward to the meeting with Oklahoma for “a long time.” This is the final show­ down,” he said. “We know that we must win or it’s all over for this season.” Claridge added that he didn’t think anyone would have any complaints about going to the Orange Bowl. Heft y Husker lineman Bob Brown felt that everyone on the squad would be “up” for the Sooner clash. “That’s the one w’e’ve got to have.” he continued. Center Ron Michka was confident the Huskers would gain a share of the Big 8 title by beating Oklahoma. “The coaches think we can win, so we »the players! do, too,” Michka observed. “This is it,” Jim Baffico exclaimed, speaking of the upcoming Oklahoma game. “We k n 0 w Oklahoma is tough, but we think we are pretty good too.” he added. “I think the Orange Bowl incentive we have will be just too much for the Soon- ers to stop.” Co-Captain Dwain Carlson said the Huskers may have been looking ahead a little to the Oklahoma game. But he quickly pointed out that they can’t be looking ahead next weekend. “The only thing we could look ahead to would be the Orange Bowl and there is no sense thinking of that until after we beat Oklahoma.” Carlson noted. Husker end Dick Callahan chimed in with “w'e’ll get ’em.” The red-haired Nebraska end explained that he thought he had a touchdown on the questionable play late in the first half when the officials ruled he had dropped a pass at the goal line before gaining possession. “I was sure I had taken two or 3 steps before dropping it and I didn't drop it until 1 was well into the end zone,” he said. Claridge, who had thrown the pass, also said he thought Callahan had grabbed it. “When 1 noticed they had disallowed the touchdown 1 thought ^ we were offside,” Claridge said. “I never even thought about the pass not being complete.” Cold? Yes! through a big hole made by Nebraska linemen Ron Michka, Larry Tomlinson and Dwain Carlson. Now . , . ___________________________ji._....... Husker Donn Tregonning . . . mittens.
