vuais mow iiaraer Mian mimcaiie, mM Chattanooga Choo-Choo Roars Past Xavier, 27-14 Muskies Disappoint Old Grads BV BILL FORD Of The Enquirer Staff Chattanooga's slick Moccasins, cleverly guided by quarterback Don Shaver, shook loose a powerful ground attack that smashed sputtering Xavier, 27-14, Saturday. Shaver scored two touchdowns,- one on a well conceived 28-yard "sneak" on which nary a Musketeer laid a hand on him, then kept the defense off balance with deceptive. handoffs in pacing the Tenhesseeans to a well-deserved triumph. For the Musketeers, performing before a homecoming crowd of 8356, it was an afternoon of utter frustration in which they were thwarted as much by their own offensive inept-ness as by the invaders. True, they outdistanced the Mocs, 269 yards to 261, and picked up more first downs, 20 to 13, but more than one oldtimer left Xavier stadium of a mind that this time anyhow statistics necessarily don't mirror the situation. Once, even, a large segment of the customers became so incensed that senior quarterback Joe Wyzkoski was showered with boos. That outburst was mild, however, to a demonstration that was loosened In the fourth quarter. At that point, trailing by two touchdowns, the Muskies held an outside chance of crawling back into contention if they scored on a drive in progress. They paraded from their own 31 to a first down at the Chattanooga two-yard line. Four plays later they still were 36 inches shy of the goal after four plunges Into the center of the line failed. Fans poured through the exits. But the fans were offered some excitement by the home forces, who pulled a ' touchdown "out of the hat," so to speak, with some sleight of hand that took the Mocs by surprise. Chattanooga had Just scored on a first period drive, kicked off and the Muskies put the ball in play at their 31. Wyzkoski, on a prearranged signal to his teammates, did not summon a huddle. Instead, he waited until the moment the referee declared the ball ready for play and with his tram aligned onsides to the left, calmly stepped to the line of scrimmage and flipped the ball to fullback Mike Junker. It was a trick, perfectly legal according to the rules. Junker g r a b b e d the ball and took off around left end. The Mocs defense stood as If petrified as the junior fullback raced down the East sidelines untouched to the goal to complete the easiest 69-yard scoring run of the season. When Ray Dankel converted, it was a 7-7 tie. Forty-five seconds Into the second quarter, Chattanooga had a go-ahead TD, as Shaver, perhaps as surprised as anybody, sneaked through the middle and ran Into the end zone. Steven Coleman, however, missed the point from placement and that mlscue was to be the wedge the Football Scoreboard MAJOR COLLEGES LOCAL Cincinnati 28, Tulsa 23. Chattanooga 27, Xavier 14.

Williams passed to Eysholdt, who made a splendid catch in the end zone for the score. It was the first college TD pass for Williams and for Eysoldt, a senior, the first TD he had scored since high school days. Daniel kicked the point, giving the Muskies the lead. Thirty-five seconds shy of intermission, the Muskies pounced on a fumble at the Chattanooga 25. Williams ran to the 13, missed three passes whereupon the Muskies called on Dankel for a field goal try of 31 yards. The kick was long enough, but wide to the left, That slim Xavier lead held only so long as the Mocs' first possession in the second half. From mid-field, they drove to a first down at the Xavier one and sent fullback Tom Schaef-fer In for the go-ahead points.

On their own eight as a result of Ron Wade's fine kick, the Muskies tried a screen pass from behind the goal. Wyzkoski threw it right into the hands of end Jack Gregory. If the Muskies were startled, Imagine Gregory. He grabbed the ball on the five yard line with nobody m his path. But he merely fell to the ground. Two plays later, Shaver swept right end to score standing up, then passed to Gregory for the two-point conversion. For the Muskies, the loss chopped them under .500 on a 2-3-1 ledger.

If vissrmaMisjwa t.l - " fW ', 1 ; Around Left End sweep by the speedy Musketeer 1 i ' r '? Tulsa On Tm o' As Gun Sounds BY DICK FORBES Of The Enquirer Staff If there's a run on aspirin around the University of Cincinnati campus today, there are several good reasons why. Because Cincinnati out- tssxmmm. r,js3msj lasted Tulsa's Golden Hurricane in a thrill - a - minute football scramble before a meager but gloriously happy throng of 16,500 at Nippert Stadium Saturday to cop a 28-23 victory and jump into the Missouri Valley Conference lead. And If the defense on both ends of the field left something to be desired, no one really cared very much because a couple of the classiest quarterbacks ever to roam a gridiron made sure the outcome was not going to be decided by accenting the negative. Jerry Rhome, the nation's leading passer played dodge 'em all afternoon in completing 22 of 30 throws for 257 yards and two touchdowns yet it was considerably below his average. But while Rhome was throwing, UC's brilliant Brig Owens was completing 10 of 15 for 97 yards on his own account, and at the same time running for 163 yards a 6.5 yards-per-carry average himself. Cincinnati twice had to come from behind, with Tulsa In front 7-0 and 15-14, but at the end seemingly had the victory locked up when halfback Al Nelson, who was simply fantastic running against the Golden Hurricane's baffled defense, committed what amounted to Cincinnati's only critical mistake. After Rhome's passes pulled Tulsa into contention with the final Hurricane touchdown with 2:16 to play, leaving UC in front, 28-23, Nelson fumbled the ball UC's lone bobble of the game and Tulsa recovered on the Bearcat 25. There was one minute, 40 seconds left, and the way Rhome had been escaping from UC's slippery-handed tacklers, the situation was desperate. Bob Welch broke through on the first Hurricane play to throw Rhome for an 11-yard loss, and immediately after Tulsa was penalized back to mldfield for holding. But this didn't phase Rhome. On three quick passes he hit Howard Twllley for 13 iimefw.'irvenif "4 -Enqulrar (Bob Fraa) Seijuenca Photos For Nine through Tulsa line before being stopped by Hurricanes' Darrell Wolff (No. 25).

But by this time the Hurricane had used up all timeouts, and before Tulsa could run off another play the gun went off sending the wearied and worn Bearcats into paroxysms If Joy. The victory, UC's fourth in five starts, gave the 'Cats a one game edge In the series against Tulsa, 13-12, with two ties. Rhome Empire Fulls UC TUIU first Dewas tustilm ....

Tulsa scored In four rapid-fire plays, Rhome throwing a 12-yard pass to Brent Roberts, who caught it on the 10 and raced over foi the score. Twllley kicked the point, and Tulsa led with only 90 seconds gone. (Sea Dresstng-Room Story On Page S-E.) As events proved later, Cincinnati was more than ecjual to being behind, however. With Owens and Ncl-. son carrying consistently Errol Prlsby only once breaking the pattern by running 17 yards the Bearcats on sheer power and speed ground 74 yards to score In 11 plays, Nelson going the final three. Owens kicked the tying poing, making It 7-7. That set the pattern for the entire afternoon. Tulsa's next drive was stopped when Bob Daugherty fumbled on the UC 33, and after a punt exchange, the Bearcats went 78 yards in 14 plays as Owens mixed the offense beautifully. Nelson smashed the final two yards, Owens converted, and UC led, 14-7. That's how It stood at halftlme. Tulsa recovered from Owens' 68-yard punt early in the third period, and manipulated 77 yards In :il plays, scoring on a one-yard smash by Bill Goods. Then the Hurricane went for two points, made them on Daugherty's end run, and Tulsa led, 15-14. Cincinnati recovered faster than that, covering 68 yards In five plays with Owens faking a handofl and running the final eight yards to a touchdown. Owens tried to pass for two points, but failed, leaving UC uncomfortably ahead, 20 -15. But the Bearcats apparently put the Icing on the cake in the fourth period by running and passing 67 yards in nine plays, Owens poing over for his second TD from six yards out. This time Nelson ran for two more tallies, and UC led, 28-15. But the Hurricane wasn't through, and after stopping another UC drive on the Tulsa 28, coach Glenn Dobbs offensive - minded crew rambled 76 yards In 10 plays, with Rhome constantly escaping from tacklers to complete passes. On the TD play he ran all over the field before hitting Daugherty In the end zone. Coach Dobbs' son, Glenn HI, then completed a two-pointer to Twllley to narrow the gap to what eventually was the final score, 28-23. , ; iuiia 7 o JJ CINCINNATI 7 7 4 -2 Tulsa Roberts, 22 (pan from (Rhemt (Tw.lley kick).
