With 82,153 roaring fans probably the largest crowd to watch a game anywhere Saturday on hand, Woody Hayes and his Buckeyes served notice that they want consideration as one of the top football teams in the nation. They certainly do. Sift Attack Striking with rugged swiftness, the Buckeyes tallied twice in the first quarter and two more times in the second to leave the field at halftime with a 27 - 0 lead and the game had all the promise of But Pete Elliott's Cornhuskers came back to stage a fine second half performance, playing Ohio State to a draw. It was the Nebraska second team that supplied the Husker touch down in the third period. ing his first appearance) drove from their own 35 to the Buckeye 25. Ohio State took over on downs But the Husker line, now manned by the second unit forced a punt situation fourth down on the Ohio State 21. Petersen in Nay Frank Kremblas never got his kick away. Husker Tackle Jerry Petersen led a trio of linemen through a gap in the State defense and Kremblas booted the ball off Jerry's chest. The ball bounced 10 yards back into the end zone where the Cambridge junior wrapped around the ball to score the Husker's lone; touchdown, George Harshman kicked t h e extra point to make it 27 - 7.

The St. Louis Cardinals upended Milwaukee, 2 - 1, in 12 innings at St. Louis to push the Braves a full eame behind Brooklyn in the torrid National League pennant race. The Braves' setback coupled with Brooklyn's twin victory over Pittsburgh, clinched at least a pennant tie for the Dodgers.

Fred Kriss' kick was partially blocked by Husker Left End Marlm Hilding. It was purely a case of the State backs picking up short gains as the Buckeye line, with big Jim Parker, Aurelius Thomas, Dick Guy and Bill Michael blasting the holes, paved the way. The Big Ten club needed 12 plays to break the ice, but the second touchdown came much easier. A minute after the Huskers failed to move, George Harshman dropped back to punt.
