Oh, I know who he is.............



this from the Husker archives.............




One week after a dreary 6-0 season-opening home loss to Hawaii, the Huskers took to the road and forced the defending AP national champion Ohio State Buckeyes to twice come from behind before the Buckeyes pulled out a 28-20 victory.
Howard "Hopalong" Cassady, who would go on to win the 1955 Heisman Trophy, rushed for 170 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Buckeyes' ground-based attack.

After the Buckeyes drove 57 yards for the game's opening score, the Huskers scored twice to take a 13-7 lead. First came a 62-yard drive capped by quarterback Don Erway's 9-yard TD run. And then came the game's most sensational play: With the Buckeyes driving at the Nebraska 9, fullback John Edwards picked off an OSU option pitchout and raced untouched into the Ohio State end zone.

Ohio State answered with a 51-yard TD drive, and the Buckeyes led 14-13 at halftime.

The Huskers regained the lead in the third quarter on a 69-yard drive. Erway passed 11 yards to Jon Williams for the touchdown, making it Nebraska 20, Ohio State 14.

But the Buckeyes answered with a 63-yard drive, and Fred Kriss' extra point put OSU back in the lead for good. Then Cassady set up one more Ohio State touchdown with a 43-yard dash to the Nebraska 2.

A late Nebraska bid to tie the game was thwarted when OSU halfback Jim Roseboro intercepted an Erway pass at the Buckeyes' 10-yard line in the final minutes.

Earlier in the game, the Huskers squandered an opportunity when a 64-yard march died inside the OSU 1-yard line. Nebraska punted only once but turned the ball over four times.

Ohio State tried only three passes all game long and held a commanding 321-138 advantage in rushing yardage. But Nebraska's passing game allowed the Huskers to pull nearly even with the Buckeyes in total yardage, 338-327.

We've had some good 38s at OU.  But this guy was not only a great player, but a great man.



Per the Font of All Wisdom and Knowledge:


Quote
Prentice Gautt (February 8, 1938 – March 17, 2005) was an American football running back for the University of Oklahoma football team from 1956 to 1959. Gautt was the first black football player at the University of Oklahoma where he wore #38.

When former Sooners coach Bud Wilkinson was pressured against giving Gautt a scholarship, a group of black doctors and pharmacists gave him money to attend the school. Within a year, Gautt had a scholarship and the donated money was given to another black student. Gautt then became a two-time All-Big Eight player and the 1959 Orange Bowl MVP. His senior year, he was named to the Academic All-American team.

He played football professionally in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns (one year) and St. Louis Cardinals (six years).

After the NFL, Gautt coached football at Missouri while earning his Ph.D. in psychology. He then started a career in athletics administration, first as an assistant commissioner for the Big Eight Conference and as a special assistant to the commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.

Gautt played high school football at Douglass High School in Oklahoma City. His senior year, he became the first black to play in the All-State game and he earned MVP honors.

Gautt died on March 17, 2005 from flu-like symptoms.

He was posthumously given the 2005 Outstanding Contribution to Amateur Football Award by The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Football Hall of Fame in May 2005.
