something a little different in his one game audition to become Nebraskas next head coach Jamroa Lord threw for a careerbest 60 yards and ran for 79 more Monday night to lead the Cprnhuskers to a 173 win over Michigan state in the Alamo Bowl Running back Cory Ross also had a career night by rushing for 138 yards and two touchdowns for normally runori ented Nebraska which won its 10th game to cap a season in which coach Frank Splich was fired after finishing the regular season with a 93 record 1 think we showed the world what Nebraska football is all Pelini said while accepting the winners trophy I couldnt be prouder of a group of The win was the Cornhuskers second in the Alamo Bowl in four years They rolled over Northwestern 6617 in 2000 While Nebraskas offense piled up 389 total yards its defense limited the Spar tans potent passing attack to 156 yards to go with 18 yards on the ground Quarterback Jeff Smoker was sacked live times twice on Michigan States first possession and he threw three inter ceptions Pelinis only obvious misstep of the night came in the fourth quarter when the interim head coach was hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for arguing too strenuously Sloppy Cowboys get ready for Panthers IRVING This is not the way Bill Parcells wanted to take the Dallas Cowboys into the playoffs Instead of carrying the momentum of three straight wins into a game Saturday night at Carolina Parcells is once again wondering about his teams erratic immature tendencies following a 137 loss at New Orleans in the season finale I told them after the game we could never beat a good team if we dont play well and certainly any team in the league would have a really good chance to beat us if we dont play Parcells said Monday Even though our record says a little differently I know that for a fact Thats where we Parcells has talked often 1 blunders typical of young players Yet he clearly noted that the mis takes made against the Saints were not tied to experience They were more indicative of players who dont com pletely understand the best way to do their jobs or in his parlance guys who just NFL PLAYOFFS Dallas at Carolina 7 ABC dont get Thats where I have the collective thought of gee whiz there is a lot of work to do along those he said In bouncing back from two straight losses with two straight wins the Cowboys had clinched a playoff spot the week before the finale They even prepared for the game thinking theyd have a chance to play for the divi sion title Although that chance was gone when Philadelphia won Saturday night Parcells still The running game turned out to be unreliable a big let down considering the Saints were among the leagues worst at stopping the run That led to Quincy Carter throwing a seasonhigh 47 passes three of which were intercepted Texans excited about future HOUSTON AP The Houston Texans expansion honeymoon is over There will be no more moral victories next season A seemingly easier 2004 schedule another offseason to add talent and a chance to recover from the leagues worst spate of injuries all mean the Texans expect to follow their 511 finish with a run for the playoffs I expected results when I first got here Ive been kind of disappointed the last two quarterback David Carr said after the Texans fin ished one game better than their inaugural 412 season Carr in some ways epito mized the Texans Bol stered by a revamped offen sive line and the additions of rookie weapons in tailback Pomanick Pavis and receiv er Andre Johnson Carrs play improved from his rookie year during which he made his mark by playing every down while absorbing a leaguerecord 76 sacks Yet Carr was sidelined twice by injuries this year and missed five starts When vet eran backup Tony Banks broke his throwing hand Nov 30 the offense stalled for two games behind overmatched rookie Dave Ragone I wish I could have been on the field a little Carr said What turned out to be an omen for the Texans occurred before training camp when star left tackle Tony Boselli the biggest name in their expansion draft retired with a bum left shoulder having never played a down in Houston Filming shows can be longer
