Ralph Terry, likely starter in the second game, worked 6 innings and allowed one run and 5 hits. Cincinnati, also preparing for the Series which opens Wednesday, rested most of its regulars. However, a Red starting pitcher, Joey Jay, was rudely treated at Pittsburgh. Jay gave up 5 hits, including 3 homers, in 4 innings in the Reds’ 11-6 defeat by the Pirates.

Huskers Escape With Tie This Gave Wildcats a Tie Arizona's Eddie Wilson Fakes Poinl-.Vfter Kick . . . Determined Arizona Misses Upset, 14-14 By Dick Becker Nebraska’s finest escaped from a very insecure beachhead at Memorial Stadium Saturday with a shaky 14-14 tie with marauders from Arizona. Thrown confidently into battle to mop up on a pock'^^ ot resistance, the Cornhuskers bogged down on attack and were overrun on defense. Even the 68 high school bands on hand to celebrate the football conquest didn’t get to stage their victory march. Only a couple of strategic blunders by the aptly-named Wildcats from Tucson allow^ed Coach Bill Jennings’ troops to keep an unscathed record against a team they were favored to beat by two touchdowms. f Some 33,000 fans, chilled by' 42 degree weather, .saw .Arizona react to the cold and wet ground exactly the way Nebraska was expected to. The Cornhuskers, complete- 1> hemmed in on offense, used a most timely pass interfer -1 ence call and an errant Wildcat pitchout to gain the deadlock, the school’s first since a 21-21 tie at Illinois in 1953. It was 7-6 at halttimc and Nebraska had made just .3 iirst downs. The locker room rt'grouping didn’t make mucli (lillercnce. 'I’he Huskers totaled only 6 first downs.

Quarterback Eddie Wilson, a Held general of the first order, missed one field goal try from the 30-yard line in the 4th period and was beaten by the final gun in trying to get another one off from tlie NU 33 after an Arizona player faked injury to stop the clock.

His pass to Huge in the end zone was perfect. Hon Meade made the extra point. But .Arizona was just beginning to open up an offense that netted 367 yards to Nebraska’s 134. Taking the ball on the Arizona 38, Wilson generated the Wildcats goalward with halfback Bobby lA*e (The General) Thompson tearing the Huskers to shreds. Thompson got one run of 40 yards and teamed with naif- back Joe Hernandez to shock the Huskers. Finally, Wilson took th»* ball at the NU 7, jumped up and threw a pass over the middle to end John Kenner for the touchdown.
