Chick Storv connected to Dick Shog for 28 yards and a first down on the Kansas 7, Moore cracked the Kansas left tackle for the touchdown on the third down from four yards out and again Sloan converted from placement The complexion of the game changed completely midway ir. the third period. Kansas, fight ing desperately to come back, started their first touchdown march from then own 5 - yard stripe. Rex Marx miller got his mates out of a hole with a 22 yard run and on an end around Dave Schmidt picked up 20, getting up to the Husker 40. Marxmiller was loose for 13 more and with a minute left in the quarter, Pattee plunged for a first down on the Nebraska two. HERE THE IIL'SKERS put up a gallant stand, knocking the Kansans back to the 7 - yard line as the period ended. Using the same tricky end around formation, Schmidt tallied on the final down, going over standing up. The stands breathed little easier when Norm Pum - phrey's attempted conversion went haywire. Three minutes later KU had another touchdown with Dick Bertuzzi and Harmon showing the way. The most important run was a lateral engineered by George Gear to LeRoy Harmon which netted 26 yards and gave the Kansans a first down on the Husker 25. Frank Pattee tore around the Husker right side for 24, being knocked out of bounds on the 1 and Gear sneaked over from that point on the succeeding play. a a WHEN PUMPHREY8 kick split the uprights the Kansans found themselves very much in the ball game, trailing by only sion of the season but the Hunkers were in front, 20 to 13, and it appeared that the worst they could get would be a tie, REFUSING TO admit defeat, the Jayhawks rallied again with an overhead assault that kept moving the Huskers back into their own territory. Getting up to the NU 24 the attack fizzled and Nebraska took over. Forcing a Nebraska punt the Jayhawks started their last futile drive, getting as far as the Husker 44 when Bauer plucked off Frank Pattee's aerial and scampered 57 yards to the 4 - yard stripe with Harmon in hot pursuit. Young fumbled but recovered for a 3 yard gain and appeared to have scored, the officials put ting the ball down a foot from the double stripe. Young failed on the next play but crashed over the middle on the third down and Sloan converted. Mack Robinson intercepted Don Jervis' long pass as the gamt ended. It was a great victory for the Huskers who had been defeated on successive Saturdays by Okla homa, Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa State and Missouri. It also kept the Husker bib clean as far as permitting a KU victory on NU sod for some 29 seasons, the last one being run up by Potsy Clark's Kansans in 1916. KANSAS OITDOWNED the Huskers 17 to 6 largely because of their two fourth period touchdown drives and outyarded the Scarlet. 252 to 229 on the ground. The Huskers completed 3 out of 7 passes for 74 yards while Kan sas clicked on 5 out of 16 for 50 yards. On net yardage Nebraska was in front, 281 to 254. Nebraska's line played great ball in the first half with Bunker and Schneider showing especially well at the wings. PHIL YOUNG, subbing for Jerry Moore, who left the game several times with injuries, was the "fair haired" boy in the back - field, clicking off both touchdowns in the hectic fourth quarter. Cletus Fischer didn't let Potsy Clark down at left half, either, for it was his mad gallop in the first period that set off the Husker SDark.
