WATCH FOR: Willie Greenlaw, B; La Verne Torczon, G; Don Erway, B.
THE DOPE: The Cornhuskers emerge from the turbulence of two years of strife under ex-Coach Bill Glassford into the ordered existence of Oklahoma-style organization. Says Coach Pete Elliott: "Nebraska will play Oklahoma's split-T offense this year, but it won't look like Oklahoma's." Obviously, the Huskers lack the wealth of talent owned by the Sooners, but there are bright spots. The defensive line, tackle to tackle, is strong; All-Conference Halfback Willie Greenlaw is an exceptionally deceptive runner and a good left-handed passer; Senior Don Erway is a seasoned quarterback, always a help.
