Peterson, a 190-pound sophomore, was the ringleader. The Cowboys were hurt by three lost fumbles, Walt Garrison, OSU’s swift 200-pound fullback, battered 130 yards in 28 carries but couldn’t score. Charles Durkee of OSU just missed a 58-yard field goal with seven minutes left when the ball hit the crossbar and bounced back. The victory gave Kansas a 1-2 Big Eight record and 1-5 for all games. OSU stands 0-3 in league pay and 1-5 for the season. Mike Johnson and sophomore halfback Dick Abernathy made the big gains in the opening Kansas drive, all of it on the ground. Abernathy scored on a four-yard sweep. OSU drove 55 yards to the Kansas 11 in the second quarter but Garrison was stopped for no gain on fourth down. The Cowboys moved to t h e Kansas 26 from the second half kickoff but Peterson pounced on Larry Elliott’s fumble to end that push. Kansas drove back 61 yards as Fenton fired two 12-yard passes to Sim Stokes before Dave Bouda kicked a 25-yard field goal.

Continued from Page 1C He didn’t however. The Cyclones did get the opening kickoff. couldn’t go anywhere and yielded the ball with a punt which Missouri’s great Johnny Roland returned 10 yards to the Iowa State 37. Four plays later, the Tigers had scored. A 20-yard pass from quarterback Gary Lane to halfback Earl Denny did it. Denny grabbing the toss at the 13 and slipping past Cyclone defender Doug Robinson. There were less than four minutes gone in the game. The next one took a little longer and required some help from the Cyclones. Safety Gary King lent the aid. fumbling a Tiger punt at the 20. Ray Thorpe recovered on the Cyclone 10. The touchdown came hard, but Charlie Brown finally got it, swinging wide around right end from a yard out. It was a typical effort from Brown, the Big Eight’s top ground gainer and this game’s leading rusher with 95 yards in 22 carries. Missouri, which now is 4-1-1 and undefeated in three conference starts, scored agaiJ late in the second quarter with a typical display of power football. Roland returned a punt 23 yards to his own 40 and the Tigers went from there. It took 13 plays to cover the 40 yards. All of them were on the ground. An eight- yard personal foul against Iowa State helped, and Roland finally took it in with a right end sweep from four yards away. Bill Bates, who had kicked the first two extra points, saw this try nullified by a holding penalty. His next effort from the 25 was pushed away by the wind, for a time, it looked like this could be important. “They cooperated with us the first half and we cooperated with them the second half,” Devine was to sav later. “They gave us field position in the first half and we gave it to them in the second.” Roland, to be precise, gave It to Iowa State, returning the second-half kickoff to the 30, then fumbling it over to the Cyclones on the 40. owa State, with the wind at its back, got to the two on that foray but couldn’t get it in. A short Missouri punt to the 29, followed, however, and the Cyclones didn’t miss this time. It took eight plays to go the distance, plus five more tacked on for an encroachment penalty. The big contribution was Eppie Barny’s great grab of a Van Galder pass over the middle. He grabbed it on the 12 and fought to the 3. Willie Robinson got to the two. Then halfback Les Webster. Iowa State’s best yardage-maker with 71 in 18 carries. bucked over. It was the first touchdown scored on the ground against Missouri this vear and the first by Iowa State in the last three games against the Tigers. Steve Balkovec’s kick climaxed the scoring, except for a 27-yard field goal by Bates with less than five minutes to play in the game. Iowa State dominated all of the third quarter and much of the second half, just as Missouri had done before the intermission. The Cyclones simply did not possess as much scoring punch. Devine who said, “We played very well the first half,” felt Roland’s fumble with the second-half kickoff changed the entire complexion of the game. T believe if we’d not haye fumbled, we had a certain amount of momentum a n d might have gone.” he said. Miswuri 14 6 0 3—23 & State . 0 0 7 ^ 7 MO—Denny 20 pass from Lane. (Bates *^MO^Bro»-n 1 run.

Oklahoma shattered Kansas State’s hopes for an upset for its Homecoming fans and rolled to an easy 27-0 football victory Saturday. It was the Sooners’ second st»-aight league victory and K-State’s sixth consecutive loss. Despite a scries of penalties, fumbles and pass interceptions, the Sooners were never In trouble.

One such athlete who fits the latter category is Roland (Ron) McDole, a former Nebraska gridder now making his presence felt among offensive backs In the American Football League. McDole is a member of the Buffalo Bills’ front wall that terrorizes opposing quarterbacks and ball carriers each week to the extent that it is regarded as the best front line in the league. The former Husker was credited with playing a key role in the Bills’ win a week ago against Kansas City, but he modestly brushes off any claim to fame. ‘T’m just beating along,” he said in a telephone conversation this week from his home in Grand Island, N.Y., a suburb of Buffalo. “I’m struggling.” There was a time when McDole was struggling Just to play football, let alone successfully. But the big lineman who came from Ohio to Nebraska for his collega football has battled back to b(‘c«me a strong candidate for all-AFL honors this vear. Big Eight Standings W L T Pet.

Wanted To Play The 280-pound defensive tackle missed several games with Houston after the head injury and his football career appeared to be over. “Even after I got rid of the headaches and was pronounced okay to play, I had some bad feelings with Houston because they didn’t think I was okay to play,” McDole recalls.

Duda kept the Huskers on the ground for five plays, carrying the ball the final six yards himself on an option play and Wachholtz kicked the conversion for a 24-6 lead. Nebraska wound up the first half scoring, driving from its own 33 to score in 12 plays. A Duda pass to Tony Jeter ate up 17 yards and the^final two plays were 16-yard passes from Duda to White, the second one giving White a tie for the NU season and career pass reception records. The Husker offense sagged in the second half after taking the intermission break with a 31-6 advantage and Nebraska didn’t get past the Colorado 48 until the fourth quarter w'hen Wachholtz, the nation’s top punt returner, ran a punt back to the Buff 25. But that effort was pushed back to the 30 and Wachholtz’ field goal attempt from the 37 was short. However, Barry Alvarez got the ball back for the Huskers two plays later when he recovered a McCall fumble at the Colorado 20. Ben Gregory picked up five and Bob Churchich passed to Gregory for 14 to make it first and goal at the one. Gregory was stopped for no gain before Churchich rammed over himself with 9:59 left in the game and Wachholtz kicked his fifth conversion of the game for a 38-6 lead. The Nebraska Black Shirts, who withstood numerous Colorado scoring threats, finaUy yielded their first touchdown since the Air Force game four weeks ago with 5:30 left in the game. The Black Shirts had gone 16 straight quarters without allowing an opponent to cross the Nebraska goal and you could hardly charge this one against the NU defense account. Colorado had to go only 19 yards after Dennis Drummond intercepted a Churchich pass at the Nebraska 36 and returned it to the 19. McCall hit Tad Polumbus for an 11-yard pass, making it first and goal from the eight. Estes Banks picked up one and after throwing an incomplete pass, McCall pitched out to Larry Plantz, who skirted the Husker left side for the score. Colorado had taken over possession of the ball three times in NU territory in addition to the short touchdown drive but were turned back each time by the Black Shirts led by linebackers Lynn Senkbeil and Mike Kennedy, middle guards Jerry Murphy and Wayne Meylan, tackles Walt Barnes and Richard Czap and end Jerry Patton. The Buffs had the ball at the Nebraska 49, but were stopped at the 44; had it at the 44 and were stopped at the 40 and again took over at the 40 and made it only to the 33. The win, witnessed by 54,110 Homecoming Day fans that included the 1941 Nebraska Rose Bowl team, was the most decisive beating Colorado has received this season. The Buffs hadn’t allowed more than 11 points in any one game this season and had given up only 28 in five games. Stein Peps Air Force V ictory Stockton, Calif. (iPl—Quarter­ back Paul Stein ran for two touchdowns and passed for another Sautrday in leading the Air Force Falcons to their first victory, 40-0, over out- manned University of the Pacific. The touchdowns the senior quarterback didn’t score, he set up with pin-point passes. His touchdown runs were for one and eight yards, and he hit end Jim Schultz on a six- yard pass for six points. back Tommy Pannell and cat quick keeper plays by quarterback Gene Cagle dealt K-State the most misery. Kansas State’s deepest penetration came late in the game when it moved from it’s own 49 to the OU 17 before Castillo threw three incomplete passes. The Wildcat’s only other scoring threat came in t h e third quarter when they moved from their 40 to the Oklahoma 20 . Oklahoma halfback Rod Crosshite gave the crowd of 14,000 a taste of what to expect halfway through the first quarter when he fielded Bob Bollard’s punt on his 32 and went 62 yards for the opening touchdown. Oklahoma moved 65 yards in 10 plays for its second touchdown. Cagle slipped through the line on a 12-yard keeper for the touchdown. The Sooner backs punished the K-State defense for 342 yards. Their best offensive output in winning two and losing three this year.

He feels the AFL has gotten much better since he came into the league. “I had the advantage of playing to the NFL also, so I can compare the two leagues.” he says. “About the only difference between the two leagues has been in experience. “The line play in both leagues is about equal. The place where the experience is most noticeable is In the secondary where experience really helps because you need it to know the moves of the receivers.” Still Follows Huskers McDole, who married his high school sweetheart and is the father of a boy, Taz, 3, and a girl, Tammy, 4. still follows the Comhuskers. “We try to follow them,” he says. “Wlllte Ross and I, that is. Of course Willie keeps better track of them than I do because he knows the ones that are playing better. “Willie is doing real well for us, but he has had knee trouble and is on the injured reserve list right now.
