T6e win was their second in a Hope Star Sports Dodgers picking up in freeway Series OAKLAND (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are picking up speed in their "freeway series" with the Oakland A's. "We've captured the momentum that we lost in the first game," said Joe Ferguson, hero of Sunday's 3-2 victory over the A's that tied the 1974 World Series at one game each. The A's won the first game by the same score. Riding the crest of their dramatic victory at Dodger Stadium, the National League champions prepared to face the A's Tuesday in Game 3 at the Oakland Coliseum — a seven- hour car ride from Los Angeles. Ferguson hopes he can produce as explosively as Sunday, when he belted an enormous two-run homer over the centerfield fence off Vida Blue. The Dodgers will start little- used Al Downing against Catfish Hunter, the A's formidable SWC race shaping up like old one By DENNE H.

A&M hosts TCU Saturday, " Arkansas is at Texas in a na- .tionally televised game which -has turned into a battle of survival, and Rice is at SMU in iSaturday's SWC fare. : "This is the biggest win of .my career," bubbled Teaff in the lockerroom after stumpy ;Steve Beaird scored from the 'one in the final minute to de- -feal Arkansas. -' Baylor carved out 335 yards :frorn the tough Arkansas de- .fense and Beaird said "We had "the best team, I guarantee you 25-game winner. Explaining his choice of Downing over Doug Rau, normally the Dodgers' No. 3 pitcher, Manager Walt Alston noted: "Downing's been pitching better than Rau the last few times out. It's as simple as that." The way the A's have been hitting of late, it may not take much to stop them, anyway. "We've been having a hard time producing runs," said Al Dark, Manager of the American League champions. "Well take them any way we can get them." The A's were not able to score until the ninth inning Sunday. Shut out by Don Sutton through the first eight, the A's needed some breaks in the last inning to get men around the bases. Sutton, a 19-game winner this year, hit Sal Bando with a pitch leading off the ninth and then gave up a check-swing double to Reggie Jackson that eluded I.fls Angeles third baseman Ron Cey. Alston brought in strongman Mike Marshall from the bullpen at this point, but baseball's premier relief pitcher didn't exactly look in top form right away. He gave up a two-run single to Joe Rudi, and the A's were back in business. Herb Washington, Oakland's • famous designated runner, took over for Rudi at first base after Gene Tenace struck out and every one of the 55,989 fans at sunny Dodger Stadium knew what he was going to do. So did the Dodgers. "It's my job to hold him on and to give the catcher the best chance to throw him out," said Marshall, cognizant of the fact that Washington would try to steal second. Washington had thoughts of stealing second anyway, but didn't get very far. Marshall, one of the best pickoff men in the business, nailed the flashy runner with a perfect throw to first baseman Steve Garvey. The entire Oakland team appeared stunned after that play. The last batter, Angel Mangual, went down without a whimper, striking out on Marshall fast- balls. While the A's waited until the late innings to produce the drama, the Dodgers produced the runs in the early and middle innings. A whistling single to center by Steve Yeager drove home Ron Cey with the first run of the game in the second inning and then Ferguson made it 3-0 with his 420-foot rocket shot with Garvey aboard in the sixth. row and third of the season as ihe locals lifted their season record io 3-3. The Bobcats conference slaie is now 2-3. It was Hope's second shutout of ihe season. The first one came when they shutout Prescotl, 20-0. The first quarter was 6 scoreless as both teams couldn't gear up their offense. Hope broke the lie with just eight seconds gone in the second quarter as quarterback Mark Harris hit split end Marshall Scott with a 39-yard touchdown pass. The 66-yard drive started when the Bobcat defense stopped the Eagles on downs at the Hope 34^yard line. The pat by Jud Marlindale was off as Hope led 6-0. Thai proved io be enough to win ihe game but Hope put seven more oft ihe board eight minutes later. Harris was again ihe man oh the spot as he scored from the four. The touchdown climaxed a drive thai started on the Bobcat 11. Included in the 89-yard drive were an 11-yard run by James Robinson and a 20-yard pass from Harris to Scott, this time Mariindale booted the point afier lo make the final score 130. The second half was a defensive battle. Both teams defensive units proved to be strong, as the last half was scoreless. Each team had an interception in the second half. Jim Rhodes picked off a Crosselt pass for the Bobcats and Archie Jones got the Eagle interception. For the second straight game, Mope's ground game provided the offensive punch. The Bobcats picked up 231 yards via the ground route with Slick Davis, a sophomore picking up 83 yards on 23 carries. Jud Marlindale, the durable senior fullback, added 75 yards on 14 carries. Harris again provided the Bobcats with key passes to add to the Bobcats' offensive punch. Hope will host Stamps, a Class A school, this Friday night. Game time against the Yellowjackels will be 7:30 p.m. at Hammons Stadium. Cards, Pats continue with perfect records Upsets becoming part of college football By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer No. 1-rated Ohio Stale threatened to join the ranks of college football's upset victims Saturday ... until the Buckeyes got the ball in their hungry little hands. Wisconsin, the nation's 13th- ranked team, took the opening kickoff and stormed 80 yards in six plays, with Gregg Bohlig passing 38 yards to Ron Pollard for a touchdown. Thus embarrassed, the Buckeyes exacted their pound of flesh by scoring the first four limes they had the ball on Tom Klaban's 43-yard field goal and touchdown runs of nine, five and 11 yards by Archie Griffin, Brian Baschnagel and Cornelius Greene. That made it 24-7 at halftime before Ohio Slale added Iwo more louchdowns in each of the final two periods, with Baschnagel and Greene each gel- ting another, and the final count was a staggering 52-7. The Buckeyes were one of only seven Top Twenty teams to have a relatively easy time of it as the amazing wave of upsets continued for a fourlh consecutive weekend.

Sub Mark Jackson took the Bears to two touchdowns earlier. "I've got two real winners at quarterback," Teaff said. "I hadn'i planned on playing Mark, but when Neal went out with that hit on the nose, he had U> play and did a superb -:-.. . Then Neal came back to et the winning touchdown."

Phone 777-3481 Second & Main HOPE, ARKANSAS and Kansas needed Laverne Smith's 51-yard run with four minutes left to overcome Kansas Stale 20-13. Arizona State, No. 18, was idle. Ohio State ace Griffin picked up 112 yards in 18 carries to go over the 100-yard mark for the 16lh game in a row, but one of them was in the Rose Bowl so Griffin is two short of the record of 17 regular-season games held by Oklahoma's Steve Owens. Oklahoma's winning 37-yard field goal by Tony DiRienzo with 5M: minutes left came afler Texas went for it on fourth-and-one at midfield. Freshman Earl Campbell, who scored the Longhorns' only touchdown, made the necessary yard ... and then fumbled the ball away. Leading 7-3 with three minutes remaining, the Florida Slate Seminoles gave heavily favored Alabama a deliberate safety when punter Joe Downey ran out of Ihe end zone, setting up a free kick from the 20. Slale Ihen kicked into Alabama terrilory but the Crimson Tide managed to drive into position for Berrey's winning Ihree-pointer. Michigan took advantage of a couple of fumbles to pile up a 21-0 halftime lead and defeat Michigan State. Missouri, which upset Nebraska a year ago, trailed Ihe Cornhuskers 100 wilh 11M> minutes left but Steve Pisarkiewicz scored on a two-yard run and passed nine yards lo Mark Miller for the winning touchdown. Tony Gal- brealh ran five yards for the Tigers' final score after an in- lerceplion. Noire Dame's Wayne Bullock barreled across from two yards oul with three minutes to go, capping a 20-play, 80-yard drive lhat lurned back Rice.

Vanderbill commilled six firsl-half turnovers and also losl quarlerback Fred Fisher in ihe early going but beat back Florida as David Lee directed four second-half scoring drives and Barry Burton caught five passes for 98 yards, including a five-yard touchdown and two- point conversion.

Bruce Hill fired two touchdown passes to "T" Bell and Willie Hamilton ran for two more as Arizona walloped Utah. Baylor's Steve Beaird scored from a yard away with 68 seconds left to defeat Arkansas after the Bears recovered a fumble snap by Arkansas' punter.

Sherman Smith ran for two touchdowns and passed for another as Miami throttled Ohio U. ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) - Defending champion Don Garlits of Seffner, Fla., received a pair of bye runs early and then went on to defeat Dave Settles of Houma, La., to win the Super- nationals Drag Races Sunday. Gary Beck of Edmonton, Alia., was eliminated in the semifinals on a seldom enforced drag racing ruling for crossing the center line of a race. He nevertheless clinched the professional drivers championship and earned $10,000. Garlils, 42, won the top fuej eliminator race in 6.10 seconds on Ihe quarter-mile track, but managed a 5.89 during Sunday's competition. By BRUCE LOWtTt AP Sporto Writer The New England Patriots and St. Louis Cardinals are still having the lime of their lives. The Miami Dolphins are starting to fight for theirs. The Patriots, with Sam Cunningham's two touchdown funs providing the offense, ran roughshod over Joe Namath and smothered the New York Jets 24-0 Sunday while the St. Louis Cardinals, on Jim Bakken's clutch 31-yard field goal wilh 1:02 to play, stung the Dallas Cowboys 31-28. That kept the two early-season surprises unbeaten through five National Football League games, along with the Minnesota Vikings, who shellacked Houston 51-10. In Sunday's other games, Green Bay stunned Los Angeles 17-6, Atlanta nosed out Chicago 13-10, Buffalo beat Baltimore 27-14, Cincinnati outlasted Cleveland 34-24, Oakland, scrambled past San Diego 1410, Pittsburgh defeated Kansas City 34-24, Denver dumped New Orleans 33-17 and Philadelphia slugged Ihe New York Giants 35-7. Patriots 24, Jets 0 Cunningham scored on a five- yard sweep around left end in the first period and a one-yard plunge in the fourth to lead the Patriots' attack. But it was the defensive unit that really sparkled, sacking the Jets' Joe Namath four times, intercepting two of his passes and two more by reserve quarterback Al Woodall, >and limiting Namath to completions on just seven of 21 attempts for a meager 63 yards. Cardinals 31, Cowboys 28 Jim Hart passed for two St. Louis touchdowns in the second period. But Roger Staubach, who had passed for one touchdown, ran one yard for the score that tied the game late in the final quarter. Terry Metcalf then ran the ensuing kickoff 56 yards to the Cowboys' 34 and, five plays later, Bakken came through. Redskins 20, Dolphins 17 The Dolphins shackled Billy Kilmer in their 14-7 Super Bowl victory Iwo seasons ago. And Miami Coach Don Shula would have preferred to see him calling Washington's signals again. Instead, he saw Jurgensen engineer a seven-play, 60-yard drive in a minute and a half thai ended with a six .yard touchdown pass to Larry Smith. Vikings 51, Oilers 10 Minnesota had been forced in the past three games to scramble for victories so the trampling of Houston was more than just another notch in the win column, according to Coach Bud Grant. "You can call it a morale day," he said. Fran Tarkenton passed for 2J4 yards and three touchdowns in less than three quarters ot play. Packers 17, Rams 6 Green Bay intercepted four Los Angeles passes — three of them by linebacker Ted Hendricks — and turned two of the OLD TIMER ON YOUR 75 YEARS OF SUCCESS AND BEST OF LUCK IN THE FUTURE FROM ANOTHER OLD TIMER NATIONAL ANK OF HOPE MEMBER F.D.I.C thefts into scores. But it was Jon Staggers who gave Green Bay the lead for good, running back a second-period punt 68 yards for a touchdown and a 73 edge. Falcons 13, Bears 10 The Falcons limited Chicago lo only 28 yards in the first half and 77 after three periods before the Bears struck on a long touchdown pass and added a late field goal to gain a 10-10 tie. That left the outcome in the hands — or, more precisely, on the foot — of Atlanta's Nick Mike-Mayer. He acknowledged he was nervous when he trotted on the field with 10 seconds remaining, "but as soon as I kicked it I knew it was good," he said of the 31-yard boot. Bills 27, Colts 14 Safety Neal Craig picked off one of Bert Jones' few passes late in the first half and ran it back 55 yards for the touchdown that put the Bills ahead to slay at 10-7. Jones passed for 44 yards — but was sacked five times for 43 yards in losses. Bengals 34, Browns 24 Ken Anderson passed for 279 yards and three touchdowns — 28 yards to Lenvil Elliott, 65 to Charlie Joiner and 18 to Isaac Curtis — and fail 19 yards for another score in the Bengals' victory over Cleveland, Raiders 14, Chargers It Trailing 10-7 going into the final period, Ken Stabler put the Haiders ahead to stay by ending an 80-yard drive with a four>yard touchdown pass to tight end Bob Moofe. Steelers 34, Chiefs 34 The Steelers' defense made seven interceptions — three by Glen Edwards who returned one 43 yards for a score — and two fumble recoveries. The Kansas City turnovers wrecked a three-touchdown performance by Mike Livingston. Broncos 33, Saints 17 The Broncos' Steve Ramsey threw two touchdown passes while Otis Armstrong ran for a pair of scores, keeping New Orleans winless in 18 straight road games. Eagles 35, Giants 7 New York took a 7-0 first- quarter lead before Philadelphia quarterback Roman Gabriel got things moving with his first two touchdown passes of the year. Jim Del Gaizo, replacing injured Norm Snead for the Giants, threw three pass interceptions, two that led to Eagle touchdowns. AIC action gets down to conference play By The Associated Press Henderson State is no longer the only winner in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference Stale College of Arkansas and Ouachita Baplist chalked up AIC victories Salurday to move into second place behind Henderson, which is 2-0 in league play and 5-0 for the year.

OBU also capitalized on three Harding fumbles and three in- terceplions to keep the Bison off Ihe Scoreboard. Howard Leatherwood recovered a fumble at the Harding 42 in the second quarter and Ouachita drove to the seven before Russell Daniel came in to kick a 24-yard field goal with 13:20 left in the half.
