when they play No 2 Nebraska in Saturdays Big 12 championship game They figure theyve lost that battle already A lot of people dont like so if we won theyd say Nebraska had a bad offen sive tackle Chris Ruhman said In all honesty people would probably call it a Thats probably what Nebraska fans call last years defeat in the Big 12 title game when underdog Texas won 3727 The Aggies are 16point underdogs for Saturdays game in San Antonios Alamodome But they dont really care if their victory would be labeled an upset No one in the country thinks we can win and thats fine with Ruhman said Well try to go out and surprise some people I just want to be able to walk away from that game and say I gave it my The Aggies are in the title game one year after a disheartening 66 finish in their first season in the Big 12 But maturity and improved offense helped go 92 overall and 62 in conference play to win the South Division At the beginning of the year no one gave us credit or a chance to win the South safety Rich Coady said Now weve won the South and have a chance to win the Big 12 Coach Slocum realizes his Aggies arent as respected as the Cornhuskers He sees the game as a chance to earn some recognition Were playing the No 2 team in the coun Slocum said They made Washington look bad early in the season and Washington is a good Branndon Stewart whose improved play at quarterback helped the Aggie turnaround has seen his team discredited before I can understand why people would discred it us playing Stewart said Two years ago they discredited us in the Alamo Bowl with Michigan the Aggies won From my standpoint I feel we are capable of giving ourselves a chance to Although the Cornhuskers are almost always capable of running away with the game the Aggies believe theyve

This is a team game We play for each other It really doesnt matter what individual goals you accom plish if the team Nebraska is unbeaten through 11 games entering Saturdays Big 12 title contest

dominant game this fall was Nebraskas 697 win over Oklahoma on Nov 1 He forced three fumbles recovered one and had two sacks as the Huskers defense barely missed a third straight shutout How to reach us By DENNE H FREEMAN AP Sports Writer IRVING AP The Dallas Cowboys keep get ting second and third chances They figure Monday night against Carolina uill be their last chance to stay alive in the NlL plavoils The Cowboys were headed for the NFC Easts boot hill after a 2714 loss to the Tennessee Oilers on Thanksgiving Day plunged them to a 67 record the worst since the 1940 season Then came their sweet Sunday in which the New York Giants and Washington Redskins both lost The Giants are now 751 while the Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles arc 661 The NFC East is getting to be like the old NFC said offensive tackle Nale Ncvuon You dont know whats going to be there at the end of the The Cowboys have won five consecutive NFC East titles This league cant survive without the Newton said We need to be in the drama somewhere Weve tried to give this thing to the Giants and Redskins but they dont want it So well take another chance against Carolina and see if we want Defensive tackle Tony Casillas said the Cowboys are getting the feeling that 1997 might still be their year The teams that are in position either dont know what to do with it or dont want Casillas said Obviously something is pointing in our direction as far as going and still having a chance to be in it after what has happened Wide receiver Michael Irvin said its amazing the Cowboys are still in the playoff picture after theyve played so poorly You can call it a blessing or a punishment whichever way youre looking at it weve still got a Irvin said I was praying for Washington and New York to win it to put me out of my misery I dont really want to sit here and say What if what Im convinced we can make the playoffs I think weve just got to come Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin if what if Thats a serious way to go through the next few Irvin said the Cowboys are due some luck Im convinced we can make the he said I think weve just got to come together The offense has to step up and pull its The Cowboys face a task they havent accom plished all year winning three consecutive games The rule of thumb says if you havent done it yet what makes you think you can do it now Irvin said But its as realistic as we make it Its just a matter of us getting it The HeraldZeitung sports department encourages admin istrators coaches and readers to contribute scores photos and other information Items can be delivered
