How Dennis Stuewe Scoots to His First TD as a Husker NU's Dennis Stuewe tries left end .,. . With help from other Husker friends , . . . . . Here’s last threat, from Wildcat Joe Hernandez , , . Thornton Suffers Slight Concussion , Bill (Thunder) Thornton suffered a slight concussion in the 14-14 tie with Arizona Saturday afternoon and was sent to Student Health for overnight observation. Thornton was sitting in front of his locker talking to newsmen when he started complaining of a headache. “It wasn’t the wet field,” he said, referring to a couple of plays in which he tripped and fell. “I guess I was playing too close and ran into my own men.” Then he started holding his head, then shaking it and assistant coach George Kelley summoned NU therapist 4ieorge Sullivan. After a quick examination y X Individuals Nebraska and application of ice bags, Sullivan said, “It looks like he may have a slight concussion.” Only other NU injury was suffered by Dennis Stuewe, a re-sprain of his ankle. Big Bob Brown, one of the finest line prospects to come Nebraska’s way in a long time, trudged off the field after Arizona had tied the Huskers, 14-14, accepting congratulations for his play from well-wishers — and shaking his head. “That’s the quickest team I’ve ever seen,” the huge tackle said. “That little guard—I don’t know his name—was really quick.” Most of the Cornhuskers shared Brown’s respect for the Wildcats who carried the fight all afternoon. But it was a silent locker room, the Huskers quietly indicating they were disappointed with a tie, but thankful they hadn’t been defeated. Tri-captain Don Purcell DRESSING ROOM ^ called the Wildcats a “well- conditioned team. “I imagine it was a good game to watch,” he said. “Lots of excitement. And I hope you (press) don’t talk like we lost—we didn’t and we’re still undefeated. Now we have to go out and prove ourselves again.” Dennis Claridge, sophomore quarterback, sat dejectedly in front of his locker, hanging his head. “They were all good,” he said of the Wildcats. “I screwed up so many times, I still can’t believe it, I guess I lost the game all by myself.

Finally 3 sideliners, with the aid of an Arizona back, captured the dog and led him off the field. ____ ISose Guard Penalty Husker end Larry Tomlinson made a great defensive play by lunging over blockers to throw a Wildcat back for a loss, but got assessed a 15-yard penalty. In hog-tying the Wildcat, he got hold of the back’s nose guard—and automatic penalty. Sideline Goal Strolling in front of the East Stadium before the game was a billy goat, adorned with a sign which read: “Kappa Says Beat Arizona.” Continued from Page ID. with a 2-point conversion went awry when his pass to Renner was incomplete. Nebraska nursed that 7-6 lead into half time. Then came another break when Thompson couldn’t get hold of a pitchout and Tyrone Robertson recovered on the Wildcat 22. After Thronton lost 5 yards, Claridge passed to Dennis Stuewe for 12 yards and fullback Rudy Johnson broke for 9 more and a first down on the 6. Stuewe, getting an offensive opportunity, swept around left end to score untouched. Meade made it 14-6 and things looked brighter. But there were still some 26 minutes left and they belonged almost entirely to Ari- ZOi . Wilson marched the invaders right back with a 79-yard drive, mixing passing and running and the unexpected thrusts of fullback Ted Christy. Thompson, who rushed for an amazing net of 177 yards -out-gaining the Cornhuskers singiehandedly—ripped in for the score from 24 yards out. Wilson passed to end Larry Williams for the 2-point conversion to’ tie it up. Nebraska’s play was disappointing. The Huskers rushed for just 79 yards and passed for only 55 while Arizona ran for 29*7 and passed for 70. The Huskers’ waiting defense was a far cry from the aggressive play against North Dakota. The supposedly gargantuan line was ripped and trapped by the lighter Wildcats. Nebraska could carry the ball into Arizona territory only twice under its own power. If there are such things as moral victories, this one belongs to Arizona, Not only did the Wildcats completely dominate the game but they also lost the ball 3 times on fumbles, had pass interference called on them and were tagged for 11 penalties for 98 yards. Next up for Nebraska is a trip to Kansas State to begin the Big 8 title chase. Score by quarters: But they were a fine team.” Claridge, who told Bill Jennings, “I’m sorry, coach,” said he was “real proud of our line up front.” Tackle Bob Jones sat quietly peeling off tape and said. “Their backs were quick.” End Jim Huge, who caught the first NU touchdown pass of the season, said Arizona was “a fine team,” while guard Tyrone Robertson said: “They were quick and good—with a lot of hustle and fire.” Asked what he thought of the Wildcats, end Dick McDaniel who last week set a school record with 5 pass catches, said, “I wasn’t in long enough to know.” While Archie Cobb was disappointed about not winning, he was happy about one thing. He has not received any orders to active duty with the Army and will not report with the Wahoo National Guard unit Sunday. Cobb had put on a square- toed kicking shoe and was ready to try for a long-distance field goal late in the game, but the Huskers never got close enough for the attempt. NU assistant C 1 e t u s Fischer, who helped scout Arizona last week, said, “They had a bettor ball dJub than 1 thought they did— and 1 thought they were good. They didn’t show much last week after they got 4 touchdowns in the first half.” . But Stuewe completes 7-yard scoring run. Not Satisfied With Tie ‘Cats Moan Over Penalties, Fiimhles—But Still Grateful By Armand Schneider If there has ever been an emotional vacuum, it was in the Arizona dressing room after the game.

There was nothing but casual conversation. Wildcat head coach Jim LaRue stood his ground in a far corner of the dressing room. “Yes, penalties hurt. They’re the death of any team. But Nebraska got Longhorns Stampede Texas Teelu 42-11 “The ref did the right thing when he picked up the ball ending the game.

W — Roy Bickford, a “wild card” defensive specialist for Florida State, blocked a punt and set up a field goal that heavily favored Florida could barely match Saturday and the state rivals played a 3-3 tie. Bickford, a former quarterback who now plays only as defensive safety man, raced in on Florida’s expert punter, Don Ringgold, early in the game and bounced the ball backward, Bickford then ran it to the Florida 17, where Ringgold tackled him. Florida State couldn’t turn the early break into a touchdown but sophomore John Harlee booted his first college field goal for 29 yards on ^ down.

I’m not going to say anything until I’ve seen the movies. Let’s end that subject,” LaRue said vehemently. “Fumbles hurt, too, especially the one that led to their second touchdown. When don’t they hurt*’ i wouldn’t say that we fumbled because we were hit hard. Those fumbles were just things that happen. The ball slips and . . . poof. The other team has it.” “This is a beautiful stadium, a fine place. But the turf is bad. I was disappointed in the turf in such a beautiful stadium. “They’re a good team. We knew they (Nebraska) were “but we were doggone lucky it wasn't a loss.” Some of the Wildcats had very little to say. Thompson thought Nebraska played a “whale of a game. “They’re about as big a team as we’ve ever played. They were well-balanced. “Wo had a sign up in the dressing room before the game. ‘.M a k e Thunder Blunder’ it said. He didn’t blunder, but we sure did stop him.” But he praised Thornton’s defensive ability. “Everytime I looked up, there was Thornton. He was always where the hole should have been.” Then Thompson contradicted his coach on one point. “This is fine turf. I liked It all right. I slipped once, but that’s because 1 cut too sharp. Once 1 got the feel of it, it was fine. Quarterback Eddie Wilson, who had his foot poised at a field goal try when the referee picked up the ball, grinned a little sheepishly. “I was just surprised. Last time I looked at the clock there were 10 seconds left. Then I looked down and the ref was picking up the ball.” State struck with an 83 yard ny Genimg scored Texas’ fi-1 gQQ^ before we came.
