The defeat snapped a 6 - game Kansas winning streak and may have knocked the Jayhawks out of a post - season bowiVrth. Kansas, a two - touchdown favorite, scored midway through the first quarter with sophomore fullback Ken Coleman banging over center for the final yard in a 16 - yard drive that was set up by a Missouri fumble. Missouri marched 53 yards in the second quarter, with halfback Bill Tobin kicking a 27 - yard field goal. ' With the score at 7 - 3, Missouri began its winning touchdown march late in the 3rd quarter after taking a Kansas punt. Senior quarterback Ron Taylor contributed 3 key passes - In the long touchdown drive and Tobin circled left end for the final 3 yards with 14:02 left in the game. Tobin's kick made it 10 - 7. Both teams kicked away scoring opportunities. Missouri fumbled away scoring drives at the Kansas 32 and 8 yard lines, and Kansas was stopped on one occasion at the Missouri 14 and another time at the Tigers' 16.

CMS Claridge rolls out Buffs in Orange After 34 - 0 Win ..and completes pass to Purcell Boulder, Colo. lP Colorado accepted a bid to the Orange Bowl Saturday night after the aroused Buffaloes stung by recent criticism unleased their wrath on Iowa State for a 34 - 0 victory that gave Colorado its first Big 8 football championship. Unbeaten in 7 conference games, Colorado finished with a two - game lead for the Big Eight championship after Missouri knocked over Kansas 10 - 7. Those teams tied at 5 - 2. Imme diately after the Colorado victory, Dan Kusserow, chairman of the Orange Bowl committee at Miami, telephoned an invitation for the Buffaloes to meet Louisiana State there Jan. 1. His invitation to Dean Harry Carlson, director of athletics, was relayed to the players in the dressing room and they voted unanimously to make the trip.

Veteran Keglers Hold World Leads lor 21 - 14 Victory Ily Dick Becker Those Jekyll - Hyde Nebraska Cornhuskers did it again! I Just how they did it you had to see to believe. I Somehow, someway, they summarized their 1961 season, i In fact, their past 5 years under Coach Bill Jennings flashed I before the eyes of 25,000 head - shaking fans as the Huskers I squandered a 14 - 0 halftime lead in losing to Oklahoma, 21 - 14 I at Memorial Stadium Saturday. These Huskers were great. They were lousy. They were daring gamblers. They were over - cautious. They were at a season's best. They were helplessly inept. All in one game? Yes, all on a sunny November after - noon. And history does come close to repeating itself. Last year Oklahoma led 14 - 0 at halftime and Nebraska rallied for a 17 - 14 win. Noted for being consistently inconsistent with fabulous upsets and miserable defeats, these Scarlets wrapped it all up this time. In the first half they were superb. Running, passing and defending with skill and daring. This was the team that hadn't made a first down last week against Colorado? You just couldn't believe it. Fourteen points they' had by intermission. Ten first downs, 94 yards rushing, another 116 yards passing and all accomplished without ace Bill Thornton who was injured and didn't carry the bail. This was to be victory No. 3 over OU's Bud Wilkinson. But an hour later Wilkinson and assistant Gomer Jones were being carried triumphantly off the field by happy Sooner players. Nebraska trudged to the dressing room, beaten decisively and saved from further damage only by the final gun. For in the second half these Huskers had netted just two yards! They didn't make a single first down nor complete a forward pass. And the Sooners hadn't done it with magic. They did Continued on Page 2D, Col. 2. Let Off Steam Disgust! Dissension! SEC. D LINCOLN, NEB., SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1961 By Don Bryant Disappointment, disgust and some open dissension were evident among the Nebraska Cornhuskers who stripped off muddy togs after the 21 - 14 loss to Oklahoma, All were disappointed because they blew the 14 - 0 lead, many were disgusted about the outcome of the season and some were openly critical of some specific coaches. There was also some disagreement about whether or not the wide open strategy of the successful first half was abandoned hi favor of conservatism at the rest period. "We didn't change much or try to go conservative," Tri - captain Don Purcell said. An opposite opinion was expressed by senior center George Haney. "What happened? We just dropped everything at the half and wouldn't run anything and that's very demoralizing," Haney said. Haney had a heated dispute with line coach Don Scarbrough and explained, 1 just wanted to let him know what I thought of him." "But I've got to give credit where credit is due," Haney said.

Quick Action Set H or NU Athletics By Dick Becker Another regime is about to take over University of Nebraska athletics and the end of the football season may signal the start of hectic activity. NUY Board of Regents met over th weekend with William H. (Tippy) Dye in regard to the athletic directorship. Football coach Bill Jennings finished his 5th season Saturday and absence of any moves by NU officials indicates the Husker coach will not be given another contract when his present pact expires on Jan. 15. A. J. Lewandowski, veteran business manager died a week ago. The departure of all 3 of these key men could bring about a complete renovation of the department. Dyo apparently is the No. 1, possibly only choice for director. He could be hired within a matter of days X att problems can be ironed out. It's a cinch the new director's first puzzle will be the football situation. Quick action is a must, both from the standpoint of recruiting and from a matter of hiring a coach and assistants. All changes should be completed by the end of the NCAA convention in early January. This also must be done in fairness to any coaches who are not to be re - hired to allow them a chance to land new positions. Jennings has given no indication of his stand in the matter. Should he depart Nebraska, he hasn't indicated if he would be interested in another . coaching job or would return to the oil business from which he was hired by Pete Elliott in 1956. Dye, a personable fellow, has had a good deal of experience in the athletic field and has close ties with the Big 10, a valuable aid in scheduling of games. Almost a legend at Ohio State, Dye won 9 letters in football, basketball and baseball. He put in one year as an assistant football coach under Paul Brown at Ohio State and then was named head basketball coach. He served 5 years at Ohio State, 9 years at the University of Washington and has been athletic director 3 years at Wichita University. He is married and has a daughter IT and a son 16. Jennings has 6 assistants on his NU grid staff. They are Leroy Pearce, Don Scarbrough, Dick Monroe, George Kelly, Cletus Fischer and Jack Braley. Lewandowski's job has been filled on a temporary basis by William Fischer, internal auditor for the University.
