Broadcasts-WOW (590), KFAB (1110), KFOR (1240), KLIN (1400). By DON FORSYTHE One of football’s facts of life is that you can’t spend much 'time savoring a big win. The next weekend rolls around all too soon. And so it has been in the Nebraska and Kansas camps this week. The Cornhuskers ended three years of frustration at the hands of Missouri with a 21-7 win over the Tigers while Kansas was upsetting arch­ rival Kansas State, 21-15. The wins were especially big since they left Kansas and Nebraska atop the Big Eight standings with perfect 1-0 records. The season is only two weeks old, but five teams have already been saddled with conference losses. That’s one factor which makes Saturday’s Nebraska invasion of Kansas a big game. The other is a historical one . .. not ancient history, but last year’s controversial 21-17 Nebraska victory. Kansas, which forged a 17-14 lead on Bill Bell’s 24-yard field goal with 14:14 to play in the fourth quarter, continued to dominate play down the stretch. It marched from its own 24 to the Nebraska 12 where the Cornhuskers stopped a fourth and one plunge by Ron Jessie for no gain. But the Cornhuskers were 88 yards from the end zone with only 4:27 to play. Things looked especially black when it was fourth and 16 at the Nebraska 37 with only 1:58 to play and quarterback Jerry Tagge was forced to scramble out of the pocket. His long desperation pass downfield appeared to be just that, but as tight end Jim McFarland lunged for the toss he became entangled with Kansas defender Mark Geraghty at the Kansas 32. It was ruled pass interference, and when the Jayhawks furiously protested the call they were assessed a 15-yard penalty. That put the ball on the Kansas 17. Three plays later the Corn­ huskers had driven to the six and been given a first and goal Jeff Kinney Starting I-Back? at the three when the Jayhawks were charged with a personal foul. Jeff Kinney blasted over' for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:22 to play and the Corn­ huskers had turned almost certain defeat into victory. It was the start of something big for Nebraska, which hasn’t tasted defeat in 11 games since. The Jayhawks never recovered, finishing 1-9 for the season and 0-7 in the Big Eight after having been Big Eight co­ champions with Oklahoma the year before. Nebraska coach Bob Devaney figures those memories will inspire the Jayhawks this week. Needless to say, t h e Nebraska memories of the game are assurance that the Cornhuskers won’t take the Jayhawks lightly. Devaney has defeated Kansas coach Pepper Rodgers just once in three years, the Jayhawks having won 10-0 in 1967 and 23-13 in 1968. But the Cornhuskers own a 52-21-3 series advantage over the Jayhawks. Devaney sent the Cornhuskers through an hour- long workout in sweat clothes Thursday to wrap up on-the- field preparations for the Jayhawks. Alternate linebacker Bruce Hauge was not listed on the 47- man travel roster because of an ailing back. Devaney also noted that offensive guard Keith Wortman would be sent to the Student Health Center Thursday night because of illness and that he might not make the trip. “Fm just not sure about quarterback. One minute I think I’ll start one guy and the next minute I think differently,” says Devaney of his choice between Jerry Tagge and Van Brownson. “Let’s just say we’ll be starting a righthander against Kansas.” Tagge went the route against Kansas a year ago and has started all five (Jornhusker games this fall but Brownson came on in the second half last week to engineer the win over Missouri. The indecision is no worry for Devaney. He regards the quarterbacking situation as being similar in strength to tho I-back spot where Joe Ordtma and Jeff Kinney have alternated. Their competition for a starting job is a real “toss-up.” Devaney us^ a coin flip to pick Kinney over Orduna against Missouri last week. Orioles Collect Paychecks On Rainy Afternoon Baltimore (JN-All the clouds have rolled by for the Baltimore Orioles, basking in a shower of champagne after they turned a rainy payday into a World Series bonanza. The Orioles battered the Cincinnati Reds 9-3 Tliursday at rain-drenched Memorial Stadium to complete a five- game blitz of baseball’s 67th summit battle, pocket winners’ shares of $15,000-plus per- player and rid themselves of the stigma of last year’s Series setback at the hands of the upstart New York Mets. “It’s payday, and we had to come out to pick up our checks,” Orioles Manager Earl Weaver said before the American League champions rode a 15-hit barrage and the left arm of .Mike Cuellar to the Series clinching triumph over a power-laden but pitching-thin Cincinnati club. Baltimore’s fourth victory in five games closed out the best- of-seven series and gave the Orioles whopping bonuses in addition to their regular, twice- monthly pay envelopes. Moreover, it vindicated their claim to major league supremacy after a year of attrition. “The money is a great reward but the personal .satisfaction of being the best ball club means more.” said Frank Robinson, who led the Orioles to their initial Series conquest five years ago against Los Angeles and started their LINCOLN, NEB., FRIDAY, OCT. 16, 1970-P.M. PAGE 19 — Just like we did in this Series. But I don’t think we played up to our capability against them.” Cuellar, a 24-game winner during the season but an early knockout victim in the second Series game, was at his best Thursday after a shaky start. He yielded three runs on four hits in the first inning, then checked the Reds on two harmless singles the rest of the way. Frank Robinson, O-for-9 in the first two games at Cincinnati last weekend, closed the gap in bottom of the first with his second homer of the Series. The Orioles scored two runs in the second to take the lead and added two more in the third, another in the fifth on Merv Rettenmund’s homer and a final pair in the eighth. Blair and Dave Johnson led the assault against six Cincinnati pitchers with three hits apiece. “We had deep respect for the Reds but I think we caught them short on pitching,” said Brooks Robinson who received final charge Thursday with a two-run homer. “This makes up for everything,” said Brooks Robinson, whose clutch hitting and sensational defensive play earned him landslide acclaim as the most valuable player in the series. “Nothing can replace winning for the first time (1966), but there’s more satisfaction bouncing back to do it again.” The Orioles, beaten in five games by the Mets last October, rebounded with 108 regular season wins — the last 11 in succession—then swept the AL pennant playoffs in three games and won three more from the Reds before Lee May’s three-run eighth inning homer snapped the 17-game streak Wednesday. “This year, we had a little added incentive,” said Paul Blair, whose nine hits matched Brooks Robinson’s record-tying total for a five-game series. “We worked harder to make things go our way. “The Mets did everything they had to do to win last year a new car as the Series MVP following his 9-for-21, two- homer binge. “Sure, we used 18 pitchers in the Series,” said Red Manager Sparky Anderson. “But I’ve got to do what the scoreboard shows. They just kept hitting us. Give Baltimore batters the credit.” The Orioles banged out 50 hits in the five games. Their 10 home runs set a record for a five-game set. “Baltimore just came out hungry and whipped us,” Anderson said. “I think they went out to prove sometthing this year, and they did. They had to live all year with the fact that the Mets beat them.” CINCINNATI Tolan cf 4 0 0 0 4 110 4 0 0 0 4 111 4 110 3 0 12 10 0 0 3 0 10 Rose rf Perez 3b Bench c LMay 1b McRae If Corrales ph Helms 2b Concepcn ss 3 0 10 Merritt p 10 0 0 Granger p Wilcox p Bravo ph Cloninger p Carbo ph Washbrn p Carroll p BALTIMORE Belanger ss 5 0 11 Blair cf FRobinsn rf JPowell 1b Rettenmd If BRobinsn 3b 5 0 1 0 DJohnson 2b 4 1 3 2 Etchebrn c 3 110 Cuellar p 3 0 0 0 4 2 3 1 5 2 2 2 5 12 1 4 2 2 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 10 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Total 32 3 6 3 Total 36 9 15 9 Cincinnati ........... 300 000 000—3 Baltimore ............. 222 01 0 02x—9 DP—Baltimore 1.

By VIRGIL PARKER Prep Sports Writer “Well, we finally beat Columbus,” East High football coach Lee Zentic said happily after his Spartans topped the Discoverers 16-6 at Seacrest Field Thursday night. It Was the first gridiron triumph for East over Columbus in the four-year history of the Capital City school. “Our offense moved the ball very well,” Zentic added. “I was real pleased with the consistency. 'The line blocking was fine for our running game and they gave (Scott) Copple plenty of time to throw.” East displayed a balanced attack between its air and ground game in methodically moving to the victory, evenly dividing 270 yards of total offense. While quarterback Copple accurately pitched 13 of 20 aerial completions for 13 8 yards, Marty Reighard, Jack Ball, Dick Neal and Kent Reckewey combined for 132 yards on the ground. “We probably relied on our passing game too much in our gpowi^ sm 'v'mm All evenU fr#e unleM foQow«!'- Iqr •: all tinea a.m. ualeai bgld- faced for p.m. Friday Local Prep Football—Lincoln High v. Southeast at Seacrest Field, 70th and A, 7:30.* (KLIN). State Prep Football—Pius X at Sioux City Heelan, 7:30*; Northeast at Hastings, 7:30.* (KFOR.)^ early games,” Zentic admitted, “but now with our running attack improving, we present more defensive problems for the opposition.” East took the opening kickoff and marched 64 yards in 12 plays for the first touchdown, recording five first downs along the way. Copple completed four of five passes in the drive, climaxed when Reighard went over from three yards out. The Spartans also tallied on their second possession. It started when Neal picked off a Columbus pass at the East 44. It took Copple just six plays to travel the 56 yards. He covered most of the distance with a three-for-three passing performance, hitting Ball with a 22-yarder plus 10 and 19-yard tosses to Gene Smith, the last one for the tally. Columbus finally got on the scoreboard in the final frame on a touchdown march highlighted by Tom Reiser’s 27- yard scamper. “It just felt good to score,” Columbus coach Jed Rood said. “We hadn’t made a point since the first quarter against Grand Island.” There were 10 scoreless quarters in between. Three against GI, four in a scoreless tie with Hastings and the first three against East. After East’s Brian Foote punched a punt out of bounds on the Columbus one with a perfect coffin corner boot, the Spartans came up with their final two points. With just over a minute re. maining and Columbus trying to move the ball the length of the field, a razzle-dazzle double reverse backfired when East’s Reg Cast nailed Mike Tigges in the end zone for a safety.

East—Safety: Tigges trapped In end Forecasts V ictory Every football coach has had occasions when his game plan goes awry. Now, they tell me, even band directors don’t always please the paying customers. Rest assured that the Nebraska band will come up with a new offense for the Oklahoma State game. Hopefully it will be more successful than Oklahoma’s new offense was against Texas. The Sooners had two weeks off and changed their offense from a Veer-T to the Texas Wishbone-T. Needless to say, the Longhorns had a (iefense for it. The old forecaster could use a new offense, too, after a sub- par 36-16 mark last week which dropped the season average to .752. This week’s forecast: Big Eight Nebraska 24, Kansas 10—Cornhuskers have the tools to break the Jayhawks’ rubber band defense. Colorado 28, Oklahoma- 14—Sooners have re-tooled their offense, but it won’t be enough. Buffs put it all together last week. Iowa State 24, Kansas State 21—Both teams may still be in state of shock. Cyclones have a history of causing problems for Wildcats and could get the job done again. Notre Dame 28, Missouri 14—Without Moore and Wallace the Tigers just aren’t the same team.
