Hunters were reporting lots of birds but far too much cover for hunting. As a result the birds per man ratio was not overly encouraging.

It was a bruising Big 8 Conference contest that supplied suspense until the final moments when the Buffs added frosting after Ne-braska failed to register the tying touchdown, despite two good chances.

Woods was a member of the 1960 Olympic but he never ran at Rome because Glen Davis was given his spot on the 1.600 meter relay team. But run he did this day, moving to the 30 where Don Fricke knocked him off balance. But Woods regained his feet and only had Husker John Faiman between him and the goal line. Faiman made a vain effort at midfield and Woods changed from halfback to sprinter, easily outdistaming Husker pursuers.
