Sooners Get It Again] Iowa St. Is 10-6 Culprit KU Romps to 31-0 Victory; Marks Fall By Don Bryant Lawrence, Kan.—Merciless in the first half and merciful in the second half, the Kansas Jayhawks stormed past a demoralized Nebraska team, 31-0 here Saturday afternoon to keep their Big 8 championship hopes. It w'as the worst licking ever administered Nebraska by a Kansas club in the 66- year history of the rivalry, besting the 22-point margin established here in 19.58. Except for Jack Mitchell’s extreme kindness to his former coach, the Jayhawks very likely would have surpassed the 36-point total run up way back in 1899 when KU beat the Huskers, 36-20. Mitchell called off the dogs midway in the 3rd quarter after the Jayhawks leisurely took a 24-0 lead before a crowd of 28,000. How To Lose Your Head But Keep Your Feet .^mes, Iowa (UPI) — Iowa Stale ended 29 years of frustration Saturday when it scored a touchdown in the final 3 minutes to beat Oklahoma, 10-6, for its first victory over the mighty Sooners since 1931. The Cyclones, who had lost 23 straight to Oklahoma after tying the Sooners back in 1926, sent their All-American candidate Tom Watkins over with the winning touchdown w.di a .scant 3;04 left in the game after Oklahoma had forced a 4th down situation on the 6-inch line. The jam-paeked crowd of 18,000 fans turned Clyde Williams field into bedlam as the final gun sounded and coach Clay Stapleton was carried off the field on the shoulders of his players. It was promptly announced there would be no classes at Iowa State on Monday. Iowa State ended 0 k 1 a- homa’s more than quarter- century domination pver them with a tremendous performance by its smaller forward wall and a very healthy tailback Dave Hoppmann. .A low, skidding 38-yard field goal by sophomore end Larry Schreiber in the third quarter brought the Cyclones within victory range of Oklahoma which had gone ahead j in the second quarter. !

The Gophers, ranked Number ,2 nationally, going into the game, were expected to take over the number one Iowa lerritor> only twice under its own power, but a bad pass from center on a punting situation gave .Minnesota possession once only 14 yards With the Cornhuskers turning in their poorest performance of the year by a wide margin, Kansas played the rest of the way and drove 62 yards for a 4th quarter touchdown. Late in the final quarter, Kansas snared a Pat Clare fumble on the KU 33, but the Jayhawk.3rd and 4th stringers couldn’t dent the Husker defense to add further embarrassment. So inept were the Cornhusk­ ers that they were unable to make a first down from midway in the first period to the final minute of the 4th quarter. Thus, Nebraska is now 3-.5 for the campaign and 1-4 in the Big 8, with Oklahoma State and Oklahoma still on tap. Kansas, meanw'hile, is 4-0-1 in conference play with Colorado and Missouri still to be met. Overall, KU is 5-2-1. Nebraska was completely devoid of an offense, and little better on defense against the fired-up Jayhawks who quickly capitalized on Husker rocks in the early stages of the game and then toyed with their northern neighbors as Mitchell threw' 43 players into action, including some not listed on the program. There are more unhappy facts to recount. It was the first time Kansas has ever been able to win 4 straight from Nebraska. It was the first time since 1937 that Nebraska has been shut out twice in succession. The Huskers have now been blanked 59-0 in two games against Missouri (28-0) and Kansas. Nebraska didn’t move inside KU’s 35-yard line until 4 minutes were left in the 4th quarter. It took a fumble by Con Keating former Columbus, Neb., prep star and now 3rd string quarterback at Kansas to turn the trick. Jim Huge recovered the bobble on the KU 27, but the Huskers got only to the 20 against the Jayhawk bench crew.

But Salem was taken out and starter Sanford Stephens got credit for the score on a one-yard drive. Iowa, in the hole after its inauspicious start, challenged consistently during the first half, but Tom Moore’s 28-yard field goal furnished the only points. Still, the Hawkeyes came from behind with a 55-yard drive for a touchdown, scored by Joe Williams on a 20 yard trap play, for a 10-7 lead to open the second half. Then Minnesota’s hard-hit- limiters Pass Dor ror uiie iìiìì uiieK By Bob Munger Ft. Robinson—There was one fantastic job of “passing the buck” going on during the opening day of the 1960 deer season in Nebraska. Most people were passing up does and hoping for the bucks that would soon come on. Some, about 20G, were killing bucks on opening day. State Sen. .Marvin Lautenschlager of Grand Island, for Vccideiit Saliinlay Page 81), ( ol. 2. 11 I KU’s individual statistics ;were well-divided with Hugh Smith — the fleet halfback U'hn fliinlrAri niif ka two years ago—leading with 45, while HadI had 43. Husker mistakes in the first half opened the door for the rout and le» the Jay­ hawks completely dominate the action before inter, mission. So dominating were t h e Jayhawks in fact, that Nebraska was allowed only 6 running plays in the second . quarter. ' Kansas ran up 93 yards rushing and 59 yards passing while holding KU to 16 yards rushing and a scant 3 yards i through the air. i The Cornhuskers passed up la golden oppoilunity to draw I first blood earlv in the game instance, killed one 15 minutes after shooting hours began. Sen. Lautenshclager said he walked 45 steps from his car and shot a 5-point buck. Several Lincolnites were having trouble on opening day, however. A brother team of Barney and Paul Schroeder hunted all day long and were unable to down a buck. In the Pine Ridge area, bucks are legal game for the , . a z first 4 days of the 5-day season. On the last day, a deer of ui any sex is legal. Fort Robinson State Park, here in the northwest corner of the state, is Jammed to the eyebrows with deer hunters.
