The big three also led UK in scoring, Issel with 29 points, Pratt with 18 after an erratic first half and Steele with 17. Terry Mills hit well from long range, scoring 15 points and helping to ease some of Rupp's worries about his guard strength. "All the guards played well," Rupp said. The UK coach said that his team was mentally ready. "Our boys were fired up. They wanted to win this one." Kansas coach Ted Owens thought his boys were a little too keyed up.

Staggering its opponent for an early -18-1 lead, Louisville opened its season Iin impressive style by winning 99-63 over 'la group of young men impersonating a game," said Bacon, toweling off in the locker room. "We knew we were ready to go. Everyone was in the right frame of mind, and it just seemed like everybody knew we were going to have a good game." U of L made nine of its first 13 shots, including five baskets off the fast break, See LOUISVILLE Page C 5, Col. 3 rebounding columns, finishing with 17 and 14, respectively. Larry Carter bagged his first four shots in helping ignite the early flurry. And U of L's forwards had good shooting nights. Henry Bacon sank 7 of 11 field goals and Al Vilcheck made all four of his shots. Bacon ended with 16 points, Carter with 14 and Vilcheck with 8.

The gamble of the century gave Texas the game of the year in college football yesterday and moved the Longhorns within one victory of the national championship. Capitalizing on a shockingly unexpected 44-yard pass play with 4:47 remaining, Texas pulled out a 15-14 victory over Arkansas after falling behind 14-0. A capacity crowd of 44,000, that included President Nixon, and a national television audience watched the game. The victory was the 19th straight for Lewis, a junior, was the only other underclassman voted to the first team. Rounding out the backfield is Rick Hornsby of Covington Catholic.

The defeat was the first after nine straight victories for Arkansas, which finished second in the conference race and will face Mississippi in the Sugar Bowl Jan. 1. The Razorbacks are ranked second in the country. Texas' gamble came with Arkansas leading 14-8 and the Longhorns in possession, fourth down and three yards to go, on their 43. Quarterback James Street of run-oriented Texas called timeout to get instructions from coach Darrcll Royal, then threw a long pass to diving Rafy Pes-clicl for a first down on the Arkansas 13. Defensive back. Jerry Moore and safety Dennis Verner trailed Peschel by only a step but Street delivered the pass perfectly. 'Suck Up and Pick a Numher' "Every now and then you just have to suck it up and pick a number," explained Royal afterwards. "You don't use logic and reason, and you just play a hunch. I never considered punting." "We anticipated that they'd go to our strength, which is the run," Street added. . Ted Koy bulled 11 yards and Jim Bertelsen crashed across for the tying score from the two with 3:58 to play. Happy Feller kicked the winning point. Street, a 175-pound senior, had slapped Texas to life with a 42-yard touchdown run on the first play of the final period. Royal boldly decided to go for two points on the conversion and on the play that has become the Texas trademark, the option, Street slid along the left side See GAMBLING Page C 8, Col. 2 1 1; 1969 All-State Team ; By BOB WHITE Courier-Journal & Times Staff Writer j It's been 17 years since a high school !
