By The Associated Press
LINCOLN, Neb. - Nebraska's
Cornhuskers, beefy, experienced
and deep, put their pre-season
No. 1 national football rating on
the line against Texas Christian
A torrid fight among competing
quarterbacks for the starting of-
fensive assignment has gone for
the moment to Bob Churchich,
who as a Nebraska sophomore last
year was suddenly tapped as field
general when the No. 1 quarter-
back, Fred Duda, broke a leg in
the third game of a 9-2 season.
Duda, recovered, has made a
stropg bid to take over where he
left off, and at least three other
talented quarterbacks are press-
ing for the Job.
TCU is expected to counter with,
senior quarterback Kent Nix, a
tall and talented passer who uses
end Sonny Campbell as a favor-
Nebraska and TCU have met
only once before, the Horned Frogs'
winning 28-7 in 1951.
Oddly, Nebraska's top rating
in the Associated Press pre-season
poll comes at a time when the
Cornhuskers have a two game los-
ing streak going. Nebraska closed
the last season by losing to Ok-j
lahoma in a Big Eight game andI
to Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl.

Defense has given Purdue and
Mollenkopf a little trouble in re-

heel of this squad. Purdue had
only the sixth best defense in the
conference in '64, but with seven

much brighter. All-America hon-

Kicking chores go to quarter-

that he can withstand the pres-
sures of place-kicking.
Purdue's veterans, having been
in the running for the conference
championship until the final two
games last season, have smelled
the Roses, and could just have
liked the fragrance enough to go
all the way for them.
A tested balance between the
Boilermaker passing and running

basis for its No. 9 ranking in pre-
season polls and its predicted sec-
ond-place finish in the Big Ten.

Badgers' Prospects Dim;
Only 16 Lettermen Back
By HOWARD KOHN
Prospects for the Wisconsin
gridders in Big Ten competition
this year look anything but prom-
ising as gaping holes decorate the
first-string offensive eleven.
Badger fans are in for a sea-
son of "better luck next time"
from all indications thus far.
Coach Milt Bruhm, who has com-
piled a winning record in years
at Badgerland, reports only 16
lettermen and only two offensive
regulars in the ranks of the re-
In the campaign last year,
Bruhm piloted his squad to a 2-5
mark for its third second division
finish since 1956. Injury and ill-
ness were the main reasons for
the lack of success.
This season, however, not even
a steady diet of Wheaties and
One-a-day's could give the Bad-
gers a chance at the title. The
jigsaw puzzle of a winning team
has just too many pieces missing
Defense will be the leading fea-
ture of the 1965 team with hefty
Bill Maselter, 260-pound tackle,
furnishing the bulk on a 216-
pound average line. Other main-
stays up front will be Mike Lon-
don, Roger Alberts, Eric Rice, Tom
Brigham and Bob Richter.
All of these are back from the
'64 platoon, along with three de-
fensive secondary men who are
slated to watchguard the back-
On offense, Charlie Burt will get
the nod for quarterback, while
Tom Jankowski will fulfill running
chores at halfback and fullback.
Burt, a sophomore, who missed
all of last season because of mon-
onucleosis, -is best known for his
capacity for option pass-run plays.
His lack of game experience, how-
ever, might limit his roaming.
Jankowski, scheduled to alter-
nate between the two backfield
slots, gained 118 yards in 42 tries
last year. He will probably be on
the field each time the Badgers
have possession of the ball.
Teammate Kim Wood, who has
recuperated from recent knee sur-
gery, will be subbing at fullback
for Jankowski, while sophomore
Gerald Hackbert will spell him at
On the line, tackle Mike Sachen
and guard Chuck Currier high-
light the list. Currier also under-
went surgery on his knee in spring
and is waiting to test it against
Big Ten linemen.
Lone ends with any '64 game
action are Lou Jung and Joel
Jenson. The 6-2 Jung looks like
the best bet to be on the receiving
end of Burt's aerials.
Grid mentor Bruhm faces a
difficult task-that of manipulat-
ing his scattered forces against
the powerhouses of the Big Ten.
