Husker Defense Stands Out Suuflav Star 7 Continued From Page 1C out to the right side and fired a 26-yard strike to Allen. The Cornhusker defense spent the rest of the afternoon wondering what Warder would do next, but came up with the big plays often enough to keep the Cyclones from cashing in on an effort which netted 19 first downs and 290 yards in total offense. Linebacker Ken Geddes and middle guard Bill Hornbacher teamed up to blunt the first serious Iowa State threat late in the first quarter. Warder had set up the scoring opportunity by scrambling 4 yards through the Nebraska defense to tiie Cornhusker 20. An offensive interference call against Iowa Allen shoved the ball back to the 35, then Geddes tipped a Warder pass and Hornbacher plucked it out of the air and returned to the Nebraska 42.

The interception helped produce excellent field position as Dana punt a few moments later rolled dead at the Iowa State four. Four plays later Willie Harris coughed up the fool- St. Cloud Rips Wayne State, 27-12 ball at the 22 and tackle Bob Liggett recovered for Nebraska. Nebraska needed just four plays to punch it in, a Sigler to Ziegler pitch for 11 yards eating up most of the distance. Dick Davis, who came off the bench to lead the Cornhusker rushers with 87 yards in 16 carries, cracked over the left side for four yards and the second touchdown.

It was 14-0 after Rogers added the extra point with 10:36 left in the half. A pair of clipping penalties on punt runbacks by Guy Ingles kept the Cornhuskers in the hole the rest of the half and gave the Cyclones the ball on the Nebraska 44 with 1:50 to play. It was third and one at the 35 when Warder faked to Jock Johnson over the left side. The Cornhuskers fall for that trickery and the right side of the defense swarmed in to corral Warder. Just as they were about to catch him the Cyclone veteran slipped the ball to Allen, who had lined up as a flanker on the right side.

The swift sophomore challenged as he rambled around left end. The third quarter turned into someting of a defensive battle with Mike Wynn and Bob Liggett leading the charge' which kept the Cyclones from threatening. It until there was just 7:23 left to play that the Cyclones, noted for their fourth quarter rallies, got things going. And it was a sandlot-type play which sparked the comeback. Stephenson had punted to the Cyclones at their own 45.

The Iowa State offensive club, minus Warder, lined up some 20 yards across the field from where the ball had been spotted at the west hash mark. Warder was consulting with coach Johnny Majors on the west sideline. He finished the conversation, then came out and picked up the ball and scooped it across the field in an underhand lateral to Allen.

Notre Dame, at least a 24- point favorite, marched from its 41-yard line to the Navy 21 the first time the Irish got the ball but had to settle for a 33-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. With' Hanratty, Notre all-time total offense leader, pulling the strings, the Irish swept to a 17-6 first period edge. End Jim Seymour recovered teammate Bob fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, and after Dan Pike ripped 44 yards for a Navy score, Gladiuex capped a seven- play, 51-yafd drive with a three-yard touchdown. Tight end Sam Campbell figured in the two big plays of the 55-yard scoring march, He caught a Warder pass for 11 yards on a fourth and i eight play, then got 16 more yards for the Cyclones when Stephenson was called for 1 interference as he brushed Campbell on a down and in pattern. That put the ball on; the Nebraska nine.

Warder rolled to the 1 side for eight yards and Harris plunged the final yard. The Cyclones went for a two-point conversion, but Sophomore defender Tom Heller ruined the attempt as he batted down a toss intended for Campbell. It was 21-13 with 3:46 left and just about all of the record 29,000 fans on hand figured an onside kick was coming up. Nebraska anticipated it, too, but Steve kick was letter perfect. It skidded diagonally across the field, then took a big hop right into the of Cyclone Roy Snell as he hit the midfield stripe.

He carried it to the 46, but then the Cornhuskers rose to the occasion. Wynn tossed Warder for an eight yard loss on third down and seven, then linebacker Jerry Murtuagh deflected Warder's fourth down pass and Nebraska took over at Cyclone 49 with 1:55 left. Davis picked up 27 yards on three carries, putting the ball in Paul had to deliver twice as his first boot from 33 yards away was nullified on an illegal procedure penalty. For the afternoon, Sigler had 12 completions in 17 attempts. The fullback position produced 122 of the 209 Nebraska rushing a as Schneiss added 35 to 87-yard production.

Now 5-2 for the season, the Cornhuskers return home for their final 1968 appearance Saturday.
