It appeared that no new injuries popped up in Nebraska’s 38-13 victory over Colorado Saturday, b u t some old ones might not have been helped any. Coach Bob Devaney said it appeared halfback Ron Kirkland and end Langston Coleman had bumped their shoulders again and that was why they were used sparingly. Larry Wachholtz still has a leg that bothers him when he kicks and he doesn’t practice. “He just kicks on Saturday.” Bob said. “Maybe that’s what we ought to start doing with our kickers.” Larry was perfect five for five and kicked a 35- yard field goal, his longest. Devaney Won’t Talk Boivl Bids Nebraska coach Bob Devaney, who takes no>ne too kindly about premature bowl discussions, set the record straight when he was quizzed on the subject Saturday. “We definitely have not received any bowl bids and we’re not even going to dis- cuss them now. All these guys (bowl scouts) are here to watch, not to invite. We’re not interested in them yet. “We have too many tough games to play.” Both the Orange and Sugar Bowl were represented in the press box, and both will be at Columbia for the Missouri game next week. Reigning Queen Candy May of Omaha reigned as Homecoming Queen during Nebraska’s 38-13 win over Colorado Saturday. Candy’s court consisted of Diana Focht, Lincoln, Kathy Knight, Lincoln; Diane Smith, Lincoln; Marcia Melichar, Pleasant Dale; Barbara Pflasterer, Omaha; Joan McClymont, Holdrege; Bonnie Brown, Superior; Candy Sasso, Lincoln; and Kathie Glade, Grand Island. Nebraska feature twirler Susie Kune uses flaming batons for her act—and maybe to keep warm. White knight for Huskers on black day for Colorado ...

Buffaloes Weren’t Surprised Crowder: JVf7 Just Great By DON FORSYTHE “They didn’t do anything we hadn’t expected, they’re just a great football team,’* was how Colorado coach Eddie Crowder summed up his reaction to Saturday's 38-13 triumph by Nebraska. The Colorado coach wouldn’t compare the Corn- huskers with any other team h i s previously unbeaten Buffs had played and even hedged a bit on comparing this year’s edition of the Cornhuskers with the 1964 Big Eight champions. “I’d say it looks like they’re about three touchdowns better and we’re one better than last year,” he quickly appraised. (The 1964 score at Boulder was 21-3). But Crowder was liberal in his praise of the Nebraska personnel, his observation being prompted by a discussion of Nebraska’s pass defense. “I think that their pass defense has improved more than any other part of their game. It has been improving from week to week,” Crowder commented. “But I still think that pass defense might be their weakest spot,” he observed. “Nebraska has good college football players in its secondary, but at about five or six other spots Coach (Bob) Devaney has some of the best college football players in the United States,” said Crowder in expressing his praise of the overall excellence of the Cornhuskers. “I thought we came up with a great effort all the way through the game,” the Colorado coach continued, “but when you let men get behind you and bobble a punt you can’t expect to win.” He was speaking of the first quarter plays in which a fumbled punt set up a field goal by Nebraska Larry Wachholtz and the late 95-yard touchdown aerial bomb from Fred Duda to Freeman White in which White got a step on Bobby Lee and outraced him to the goal. Crowder, whose B u f f .s ranked No. 10 in the nation in rushing defense, was pleased with the way his club contained the Nebraska running attack (149 yards) but disappointed that his club gave up 223 yards through the air. “We just didn’t defend as well against the pass as we should have,” he said. Colorado halfback Bill Harris, injured late in the contest, was described as having a bruised hip. Other than that Crowder thought his young squad came through the game without much physical damage. Jerry Patton NU Tackling Leader Sophomore end Jerry Patton led Nebraska tacklers in Saturday’s 38-13 win over Ck)lorado with 11 stops. Middle ^ard Wayne Meylan, making his first appearance with the defensix e unit, and linebacker Lynn Senkbeil were close behind with nine each. Middle guard Jerry Murphy and halfback Kaye Carstens were next with five each.
