Huskers T umble To Buffs 2nd NIJ Loss ln Big Eight Continued from Page ID. from 10-yards out for the coup d’grace. Extra Point Joe Romig supplied t h e only extra point of the day, and the goal posts came down, Nebraska had time for 3 pass plays. Soph John Kaiman hit Bill Comstock wdth a 6-yard toss, then was thrown for a 1.3-yard loss. Perhaps the final play of the day keynoted Nebraska’s frustration more than anything. Faiman spotted Don Purcell and threw the ball. The Husker end made a high leaping snag and crashed to earth — a lo- yard gain, and the first pass he has caught this season. But he hit the ground at the same time as the final gun exploded -- a great catch, but for nothing. While Nebraska’s offense may have left something to be desired, there was no question but what Colorado’s defense was instrumental in stopping NU many times. The big, rugged Buff line held the Cornhuskers to a mere 129 yards, just one yard more than 3rd stringer Rife’s total, and the Husk- crs’ 27 yards passing gave them only 156 yards for the day. Gained Well Colorado, meanwhile, chopped up NU’s defensive corps for 226 yards on the ground and added another 70 through the air for a grand total of 296 yards, second largest mark chalked up against NU this fall. Army’s 324 yards is the only topper. Thornton was Nebraska’s main threat, gaining 80 yards on 19 carries for a 4.2 average, as Colorado’s big and mobile ends punctured most threats to the outside. Fischer. with 31 yards, and Pat Clare with 22, were contained well. Those same Buff ends — Bill Elkins and Jerry Hillebrand, caved in H ii s k c r flank.s consistently, allowing Rife to get outside for several lengthy gains. Weiss and Jerry Steffen of Crofton, Neb., got 39 and 38 yards, respectively, in support of Rife.

It was estimated that some 4.700 Nebraskans were on hand for the contest which was the NU migration. Prior lo the game the Ne- nraska innocents received the Buffalo head, symbol of victory between the two clubs. NU won last year 14-12. Boulder. Colo. — Colorado takes the limelight in the Big 8 Conference this w’eek as the next team buoyed up to try and knock off Oklahoma — something only Nebraska has managed in the last 16 years. As a group the Buffs whooped it up in their dressing room. “We’ll be ready for Oklahoma’ ” was the main cry as the Mountaineers took the win over Nebraska stride. There were plenty praises for the Huskers, however. Coach Sonny Grandelius had this to say: “It was a real important win for us. We made a lot of mistakes—m i s s e d assignments — but we still were able to come up with the key gain when we needed it. * “li’s really a big lift for a team when a boy like Teddy Woods can go iP the way. That’s where the speed I've been talking about for so long can make the difference. “We took a real bruisiag out there. Nebraska was a real good football team, real tough in the line. You know Joe Romig had to be in there for all but 6 plays. “We ran more to the left because Nebraska was watching for our left halfbacks going to the right. Once we found this out, we kept coming back to the left side with Rife who did a real fine job of running. (Rife replaced Ed Cole­ man. who was injured, and ran for 116 yards.) Tackle Bdl Enrich and end Jerry Hillebrand callcvl Nebraska “the hardest :ul- ting line we have plavcd all year. It really popped in there. F'ischer is a great loot ball player, not on! y running but he hits hard.” Quarterback Gale Weidner, w44> easily won back Out of Woods Teddy Woods was mobbed on the sidelines by his teammates and the CU coarhe.s after his 95-yard touchdown run. Woods, who reported to CU strictly as a sprinter, had cnly played guard in high school. His run against NU was what everybody in Colorado had been waiting for. He was pounded and nearly carried to the ground by his mates. Bellino Sets New Point Mark. Navy Rolls., 27-0 Statistics Fir.

Phitadelphia (UPD —Halfback Joe Bellino, Navy’s Jack! of ah trades, scored two touchdowns Saturday to set* an Academy modern individual scoring mark as the unbeaten Middies topped Penn- svlvania, 27-0, for their 6th straight win.

Tim Uiddies didn’t unleash their real power until the final period when they blasted 68 yards on the ground, with fullback Joe Matalavage carrying 9 of the 14 plays for a total of 56 yards before he scored the final touchdown from the one. Penn’s only scoring threat came in the second period when Pete McCarthy raced to the Middie two only to have tne run nullified by an offside penalty.

Romig and Eurich are easily the best linemen in the conference. I had tremendous protection for my passing. We’ll be ready for Oklahoma and I hope this will be the year.” Teddy Woods, the Olympian who killed the Huskers. declared“It sure was a great thrill. You’re supposed lo run up the middle on kickoffs and I did. I got through real easy and then there was only one guy and if you can’t outrun one guy, you haven’t got any business carrying that football. I’d like a couple more next week, that’s for sure.” Fullback Chuck Weiss said. “Nebraska had a real g»’ea* line. Thornton is one of the best fullbacks I’ve ever faced. On Woods’ kickoff return, he hollered for me to block lo the right and I did but he went to (he left. When I looked up and saw him breaking dow n the middle, I knew he w'as gone. You just don’t catch him in an open field.” Romig, the Big 8’s outstanding lineman and certain to get All-American consideration, felt that “xNe- braska came right at me all day. You can’t help but make a lot of tackles. Real- .y I couldn’t get out of the way of them much of the time. It was a real bruising game. I’m really glad 1 made that extra point. You know I missed a field goal against Arizona and I was afraid I might not get another chance to score if I botched this one up.” It was Romig’s first point in collegiate competition. Doane RiiiiiiprH IPaiik llaKtinus Little, Eye More Punch Boulder, Colo. — Nebraska’s football players were tired, sore, disappointed and disgusted. The dressing room after the loss to Colorado was silent, a few whispered conversations, but in the main utter dejection. They had come close, but close doesn’t count. Don Purcell, skinned and bruised, sat in front of bis locker. He was disappointed in tbe defeat, digusted witb tbe inability of tbe team to score more . . . but quite pleased tbat be bad finally caugbt a pass. The big end from Omaha made a sensational grab of a John Faiman toss on the last play of the game. “I finally caught one,” he grinned. “I don’t know why they don’t throw to me. Just one of those things. Something Lacking “There’s still something lacking for us out there, 1 don’t know what it is . . . Oh, well, you w i n some, lose some, and some are rained out. It was just a hard fought game and they played harder than we did.” Bill (Thunderk Thornton colud say only that“we just couldn’t make the one that counted . . , we just couldn’t do it.” Don Fricke, who drew praise from coach Bill Jennings as “an excellent football player, not big, but around the ball all the time,’’ had little to say. “They were good, 1 ★ ★ ★ Stolistirs guess. -Romig (Colorado guard Joe Romig) seemed like a pretty good player,” the Husker center offered. wjim John Faiman, who had the last hope to catch Woods on the long touchdown run, said, “I just got out of position ... but that didn’t beat us. We still needed a touchdown to win.” All in all the Huskers didn’t have much to say. No serious injuries were reported, just a more than ample amotint of bumps and bruises.
