Wisconsin, which took its lumps last week from Nebraska, had to abandon its Savage Award to the most outstanding defender in the wake of the game, the Huskers dominating things to such an extent they couldn't find one.

Norman, Okla. (UPI) — Sophomore quarterback Gene Cagle, in his first starting role, scored three touchdowns and fired up the sagging Oklahoma attack for a 21-7 Big Eight victory over winless Kansas Saturday. It was the first win of the season and a happy homecoming for Oklahoma, which until today showed very little offensive might. Kansas dropped its fifth straight game of the campaign. Cagle, running the Sooner attack with the finesse of a veteran, scored twice from the two-yard line and once from the one. He repeatedly kept Kansas off balance with keeper plays and wa.s the game’s top rusher, compiling 71 yards in 20 carries.

It was at that point that Iowa State’s Steve Balkovec booted a 34-yard field goal for a 10-7 Cyclone lead, climaxing a comeback which shocked 25.M10 homecomers here on a chilly, sunny day. Rogers’ kick with 21 seconds left was a second- chance effort which gave the Buffs their second deadlock in five games in what was supposed to be only a tuneup for next Saturday’s battle at Nebraska. The two teams had slugged It out through most of the flrat half. Iowa State getting slightly the worst of it, before Colorado ground 61 yards in 15 plays to send Bill Harris scooting around right end with a pitchout for a touchdown from three yards out. the ball once more before the final firework.s started at the Buffalo 'M with 4:18 to play. Rogers promptly made it 7-0. and that was all the scoring for a time, because Buffalo fortunes soon took a turn for the worse. The winning Los .\ngeles Dodgers picked up about 10 grand and the Minnesota Twins about $6.500 for their efforts in the World Series. The umpires don’t fair that well. They receive only $4,000. Nebraskans in Winter Ball Several of the young baseball players from Nebraska and around the Big Eight will be playing in the instructional leagues in Florida and Arizona this winter. Last year’s Husker pitching sensation Stan Babnsen and Dave McDonald of Grand Island will be with the Yankees in Florida. And former Kansas quarterback Steve Renko, whose ex-mates are playing like the Mcts, will be with the Mets in the same league playing for Eddie Stanky. Also in Florida is former Missourian John Scvcik. In the Arizona circuit Ken Fila will be getting a jump on his debut next spring. In that league former Lincoln Chiefs skipper Monty Basgall will field a team for the Dodgers. Incidentally, the instructional league is pretty fast baseball. While the bulk of the players are young, there are a few fairly established players who need to work out some rough spots. The Mets will have both rookie whiz Ron Swoboda and former All-Star second baseman Ron Hunt... I Want Holman Syracuse coach Ben Schwartzwalder chuckles over the story related to him by a friend who watched the Orange 24-0 loss to Miami. Things didn’t exactly go too well as Syracuse was using two quarterbacks — Rick Cassata and Teddy Holman. “1 want Holman ... I want Holman,” a fan began to chani. “Why do you want Holman?” asked another. “He’s having a bad day.” “I want Holman right up here with me” replied the first, “so that stupid Schwartzwalder won’t put him back in the game.” . . . The rumors have already began spreading abolit coaches being in trouble and the list within not too many miles is long, containing the likes of Jack Mitchell, Gomer Jones, Doug Weaver and Jerry Burns. At Kansas last Saturday as Iowa State was jolting Kansas the KU cheering section followed 15 “rahs” by yelling, “Basketball!” In that one the student manager drew a 15-yard penalty for saying something to an official and after the game, Mitchell said: “Our defense was good against everything but the touchdowns.” And that’s the worst kind. Against ÌJCLA Kick Returns Bring .Vlissouri Back, 14-14 Using the pass sparingly, Cagle completed four of seven passes for 27 yards. Kansas quarterback Bob Skahan, trying desperately to pull it out, piloted the Jay- hawks to within seven points of Oklahoma in the fourth quarter, but the Sooners quickly pulled ahead again. Kansas took the ball on the Oklahoma 39 when end Bill Walters recovered a fumble and Skahan rifled three straight completions to move to the Oklahoma 10. He collected the touchdown himself on the next play on a 10-yard sprint into the end zone. I Skahan earlier had moved! I Kansas to the Oklahoma eight, but his end-zone pass was intercepted by Sooner : defender Gene Knight. Oklahoma’s ground power ^ clicked from the start and the Sooners battered the Kansas * line for 241 yards while holding Kansas to 92 on the ground. Kansas managed only one yard rushing until midway in the second period. Oklahoma, staying strictly , on the ground, drove 60 yards in 13 plays for its first; touchdown. Halfback Tommy Pannell broke loose for a 1.3-! yard dash to the 13-yard line, and a personal foul penalty against Kansas put the ball on the seven. Five plays later, Cagle rammed over right, guard from the two-yard line I to score. Oklahoma took the second- half kickoff and marched 80 yards in 21 plays, again all on the ground, to take a 11-0 lead. Cagle rolled around right end to score from the two-yard line. Cagle departed from his I usual ground game to hit i split end Jimmy Linn on aj 12-yard pass to move into I Kansas territory, and the infantry troops took it from; there. “It’s awful to come back in the last three minutes just to get a stinking tie.” Colorado coach Eddie Crowder said afterward. “It’s ridiculous to fiddle around for .57 minutes.” Unpalatable as the tie was to the Buffaloes, w h o had won two straight B i g Eight games and three in a row over-all coming into this one. it was better than t h e defeat which stared them in the face the final nine minutes and 41 seconds of the contest. The statistics don’t really show it. but Iowa .State dominated the second half, keeping Colorado penned deep in its own territory most of the wav. were aided by a 1.5-yard per.sonal foul penalty and hampered by a five-yarder for Illegal procedure which set the bali back from the goal to the eight-yard line. But two plays after that quarterback Tim Van Gal- dcr lofted a pass in the corner of the end zone to George Maurer for the touchdown. A great diving catch by flanker George I..ewark salvaged a 25-yard gain and a first-down on fourth down at the Cyclone 38. Despite staunch w’oilc by C safety Larry Carwcll, Buff quarterback Bernie McCall twice lì i t .soph halfback John Farler for crucial gains which set up first down.s. The Cyclones, now 1-1-1 in tlie conference and winners of three games overall. were shackled by their own errors and some sturdy Colorado defensive play until early in the fourth period. Then, taking over on the Colorado 49 after a p o o r punt, they ate up the d i stance in eight plays. They Balkovec tied the contest with the extra point, then got hi.s chance to be a hero almost immediately.

(UPI)—Favored Missouri, relying on a pair of electrifying fourth quarter kick returns by Ray Thorpe and Johnny Roland, battled upstart UCLA to a 34-14 intersectional football tie Saturday. Trailing 14-0 with 14:35 remaining, Missouri thundered out of quietness with its two tying touchdowns m a three lilinute span before a crowd of 47,000. Missouri is now 3-1-1 for the season and UCLA 2-1-1. A pair of 34-yard scoring passes by UCLA’s briUant sophomore quarterback Gary Beban and a rugged Bruin def e n s e hammered Missouri through the first three quarters.

Oklahoma State twice charged back to score and rub out the Tech lead, and the Cowboys had the ball almost all of the first half.
