Included in the 88-yard College football takes turn back to normal season By HERSCHEL NISSENSON AP Sports Writer After four upset-filled weekends, the college football scene returned to normal Saturday ... and in this jumbled season that may be the biggest upset of all. Only three members of The Associated Press Top Twenty came out losers and two of them bowed to other ranked teams. Tenth-ranked North Carolina State suffered a 33-14 licking at the hands of un ranked arch-rival North Carolina, but No. 9 Arizona was toppled by No. 17 Texas Tech 17-8 and No. 13 _ Kansas underwent a 56-0 humil- &5J iation at the hands of No. 12 Ej Nebraska. S§ Meanwhile, the runaway 1-2 ||j teams in The AP ratings rolled jjs to easy victories — top-ranked w Ohio State crushed Indiana 49-9 jg while runner-up Oklahoma Sj bombed Colorado 49-14.

"They're both fine teams," ij said Coach John Jardine. "Ohio §j State was as fired up for us as HS anyone has ever been. Whether Sg Michigan was fired up or not, I P don't know." £ Colorado has played Okla- ghoma and Michigan, losing to jgthe latter 31-0 four weeks ago. £ "Michigan is a fine team but J£ Oklahoma is better," said iJCoach Bill Mallory. "If they •»• want to play each other, it's all right with me." Indiana's Lee Corso and Colorado's Mallory couldn't compare the 1-2 teams directly, but they had some thoughts, anyway. "This is a national championship caliber team," Corso said after Ohio State's Archie Griffin romped for 146 yards and two touchdowns and became the top ground-gainer in Big Ten history. It was Griffin's 16th consecutive 100-yard regular-season game, one short of the national record held by Oklahoma's Steve Owens. Griffin also passed the century mark in the Rose Bowl last Jan. 1, but that doesn't count in the NCAA record book. Griffin's output boosted his career yardage to 3,321, surpassing the mark of 3,315 set by Purdue's Otis Armstrong a couple of years ago. Meanwhile, Oklahoma's Joe Washington, a junior like Griffin, rambled for 200 yards and four touchdowns in just 18 carries against Colorado as the Sooners chewed up 594 yards of real estate oh the ground. "There can't be a better team than Oklahoma," said Mallory. "They were awesome. If there's a better back in the country than Washington, I haven't seen him. What moves and balance he's got! Their offense is fabulous. If they play like they played against us, I don't see anyone beating them." Michigan's Dennis Franklin threw an eight-yard touchdown pass to Greg DenBoer to snap a third-period tie against Wisconsin and the Wolverines also got scoring runs from Chuck Heater and Gordon Bell. Willie Shelby ran 13 and 19 yards for Alabama touchdowns and set up one of Calvin Culliver's two scores with a 41-yard punt return. Auburn's stingy defense was riddled for 22 points by Georgia Tech but still came up with the big plays. Chuck Jones, a freshman, blocked a punt and ran it 42 yards for a touchdown and recovered a fumble to set up another tally. One of the 160 yards gained by Southern "Cal's Anthony Davis produced a touchdown and Chris Limahelu tacked on three field goals enaonng the sluggish Trojans to defeat Oregon. Fullbacks Wayne Bullock and Russ Kornman split four touchdowns as Notre Dame whipped Army and David Walker completed seven of nine passes for a whopping 220 yards in the Texas Aggies' triumph over TCU. One of them was a screen to Ronnie Hubby, who galloped 60 yards to score. Texas Tech stifled Arizona's high-powered offense, holding the Wildcats to 173 yards, well below their average. Curtis Jordan and Randy Olson came through with key interceptions (and the Red Raiders also recovered two Arizona bobbles. North Carolina scored three times in the first period on runs of 36 yards by Mike Voight, three by Chris Kupec and 10 by Boom-Boom Betterson and in toppling N.C.iState. Penn State's Tom Shuman ran for two touchdowns and passed for a third against Syracuse ; Nebraska's Dave Humm fairly sizzled with 23 completions in 27 tosses — including 15 in a row — for 230 yards and three scores against Kansas; Florida came from behind in the final period to down Florida State on a 63-yard touchdown pass from Don Gaffney to Alvis Darby and Tony Green's 12yard run. Arizona State freshman Dennis Sproul threw a pair of scoring passes as the Sun Devils trounced Utah; another rookie, Texas fullback Earl Campbell, gained 109 yards on just eight rushes, one of them a 68-yard touchdown gallop, in the Longhorns' rout of Arkansas; Bob Avellini passed for 157 yards and two touchdowns as Maryland stomped Wake Forest, which has lost its last four games by 196-0. .*• fS Through the Uprights JUD MARTINDALE (29) boots the extra point kick after a Hope touchdown last Friday night against Stamps.

The surprising St. Louis Cardinals are now the only undefeated team in the National Football League — the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots were knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday — and Coach Don Coryell is enjoying his team's success to the fullest.

"That run scared me," said Buffalo quarterback Joe Ferguson, who threw for three TDs. "I'm just glad we forgot about it and came right back," he added. Ferguson threw touchdown passes to Paul Seymour and 0. J. Simpson within the next 11 minutes to put Buffalo in front, and New England never drew even. Rams 37, 49ers 14 James Harris sparkled in his first start at quarterback for the Rams, passing for three touchdowns and running for another. He completed' 12 of 15 passes for 276 yards'.
