The Oklahoma quarterback was injured on the fourth-quarter play as he tried to pass. Defensive Hitting Nets NU Win Huskers Ed Pa voris (61) and Walt Barnes his clothes on.,. (right) give Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney a shower with and it’s as sweet as orange juice. Bob Devaney, attired in his practice gear of khaki pants and sweats'niri after taking a rather impromptu shower in his street clothes, acted like a coach who had just whipped Oklahoma. “It was my only suit, too,” the Nebraska footbali coach quipped as he accepted congratulations from everyone in Lincoln. Later, after a hectic half hour in the dressing room, the Nebraska coach talked quietly of the victory. His summation was brief and emphatic. “That hitting on defense was the best a Nebraska team has had since Tve been here,” he said. “That was the difference.” fk “No, we didn’t have to motivate the team. They got themselves ready. I think they all felt bad about getting beat so badly last year (34-6).’’ Devaney said that the Huskers had not inserted much new stuff this week. “We used about three new plays,” he said. “We were running the option differently near the end of the game« And that wide re­ verse we put in this week.” The Huskers also used the halfback pass for uie time this season, Dave Theisen throwing to Kent McCloughan incomplete. “I wished I could have had that back the minute it left his hand, too,” he added. The reason the score finished so tight was t h e coach wanted to let h i s third team see some action. “1 wanted to give a few kids a chance to play, but I guess we can’t do that.” Devaney said he was growing quite concerned at the finish. “Pve never seen a team go from 7 to 20 points so fast,” Devaney said of tho Oklahoma comeback. “If they had iiiaue ihat i w o- pointer (after the final touchdown) and recovered the onsides (short kickoff) kick, they could ha\;e beaten us.” Devaney was particularly pleased with his club’s pass defense which was near perfect until the very end. While the breaks seemed to go Nebraska’s way at the finish, Devaney pointed that there was actually only one fumble recovery difference in the two teams. ”We did intercept two of their passes and they played an important part in the game,” ho said.
