2 THE OTTAWA HERALD ™ Wednesday, November 8, 19i!l Alabama Could Get The Rose Bowl Bid By TED SMITS Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK (AP)-The always cloudy college football bowl picture has a new element of uncertainty this year—a Big Ten team may not be invited to the biggest of them all, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. There is at least a fair chance Alabama might get the bid. The working agreement between the West Coast and the Big Ten has expired, although Minnesota was invited last year. There is some disagreement within the Big Ten over the game and the upshot could be a switch by the West Coast group to another area for the visiting team. Among the teams almost cert- Ckiussen Picks Texas, Naturally, And The Buffaloes By HAROLD CLAASSEN Associaled Press Sports Writer NEW YORK AP)-A poet once wrote that "once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide." That doesn't include college football forecasting where you must decide every Wednesday. Last week there were 36 correct decisions, 16 wrong for .692. This week's picks: Texas over Baylor: Texas has romped over four conference foes to the average tune of 34-7. What makes you think they won't do the same to Baylor? Alabama over Richmond: Almost like an open date for the Alabamans. Ohio State over Indiana: Where do you find a better fullback than Bob Ferguson of the Buckeyes? Louisiana State over North Carolina: This very easily could go the other way if the LSU Tigers spend too much time re-reading the clippings of their triumph over Mississippi last weekend. Iowa over Minnesota: The nation's No. 1 team in September needs a victory here to save its season from complete collapse. Michigan State over Purdue: They can't stop the Spartans two weeks in a row. But the Boilermakers are rugged. Mississippi over Chattanooga: The Rebels start another winning streak. Colorado over Utah: Gale Weidner and his Colorado mates are headed for the Orange Bowl and they are not to be side-tracked at this stage. Tennessee over Georgia Techt Some of the wolves are beginning to yelp in Tennessee and that should inspire the Vols. Missouri over Oklahoma: But not by last year's 41-19 margin. Syracuse over Colgate: Just when Colgate starts on the road back it runs into an angry Ernie Davis. Duke over Navy: This is the Oyster Bowl game. The Duke razzle-dazzle wil decide it. UCLA over Texas Christian: A toughie but the home field helps the Californians. It is a Friday night contest. Washington over Oregon State: Too much Huskie speed in the person of Charlie Mitchell.

Both Romig and Blaine, contenders for regional and possible All America honors since early season, stood out in the crucial Big Eight game at Boulder, Colo., won by Colorado 7-6. Each was credited with 10 or more stops. Basham, 180 - pound senior, who has been especially tough on defense, turned in a fine job in Kansas' 28-6 romp over Nebraska. Wright, a 210-pound junior from Enid, Okla., was a star in Wichita's 25-13 victory over Oklahoma State. He was credited with eight tackles and several assists. The AP's District Five, all America Board also liked big Jerry HiUebrand, Colorado; Conrad Hitchler, Missouri; Benny Boydston, Kansas, and Dick McDaniel, Nebraska, for end play; and centers Kent Staab, Kansas, ahtf'Walt Klinker, Colorado. John Had], Kansas quarterback, continued his strong bid among the backs as do Bill (Thunder) Thornton, of Nebraska; Gale Weidner, of Colorado, and Alex Zyskowski, of Wichita.

Any way the pie is cut, the Southeastern Conference gets the big bowl share. Television is a big factor in the bowl picture. Sponsors want teams with colorful performers and broad regional appeal. Since big money is involved, bowl selectors pay heed. This could work against such fine, unbeaten teams as Colorado and Rutgers. Here is how the major bowls shape up: ROSE, at Pasadena Calif., Jan. 1—UCLA, 2-0 in Big Five play, seems to have the inside track as the Western team, with the issue probably to be decided Nov. 25 in the game with Southern California. Ohio State and Minnesota, unbeaten in the Big Ten, would seem to have first call, but ! Ken Hooton, a director of the Big Ten Club of Southern California, thinks the academic Senate of Ohio State might veto the game, and that Minnesota might not want a repeat appearance. All this points to Alabama as a possibility. COTTON, at Dallas, Jan. 1- Top-ranked Texas seems sure to be host team. Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana State, Georgia Tech and Auburn of the Southeastern Conference are all possible opponents. SUGAR, at New Orleans, Jan. 1—The stands are segregated and no teams with Negro players will be invited. That points to an all- Southeastern Conference game, and again the possibilities are Louisiana State, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia Tech and Auburn. ORANGE, at Miami, Jan. 1— One team will come from the Big Eight but this does not have to be the conference champion, now shaping up as Colorado. "If Colorado falls by the wayside, then we have Missouri or Kansas," says Ernie Seiler, Orange Bow president. Georgia Tech and Syracuse are possible opponents to the Big Eight representative. GATOR, at Jacksonville, Fla. Dec. 30—The goal is to match a Southeastern team against one from the East. The Eastern group includes Maryland, Syracuse, Army and Navy. BLUEBONNET, at Houston, Dec. 16—One of the top Southeastern teams is wanted for one opponent, or possibly Navy. For the home team the runner-up in the Southwest Conference will be sought. This could be the winner f Saturday's Rice-Arkansas contest. LIBERTY BOWL, at Philadelphia, Dec. 16—Maryland, Syracuse, Villanova, Rutgers, Army and Navy are best prospects for host team. For opponents, one of the tough Southeastern Confer ence teams is being considered along with Rice, Utah State, Miami of Florida, North Carolina and Duke. GOTHAM, at New York, Dec. 9—Army and Syracuse have been invited. Both are proving coy. Maryland, Miami of Florida, and Georgia Tech are possibilities. Coming as it does the week after the NCAA television program con' eludes with the Army-Navy game, this new bowl has a momentum TV audience that could help in landing a major attraction. Field Goal Ultimate Weapon By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer The field goal has become the ultimate weapon in close football games this year as the college footballers have adopted the pros attitude that three points is better than a long-shot chance for six. Almost two-dozen major college games have been decided by the field goal so far, with many crucial conference and prestige games still to come. The trend toward increased use of the three-pointer began when the rule-makers widened the goal posts a few years back instead of moving them 10 yards forward to the goal line. So far the Southeastern and Southwest conferences have been the key users of the field goal. Durwood Pennington of Georgia has won three games for the Bulldogs with his accurate kicking, one a 52-vard shot that beat K"> lucky 16-15. This came after he had made one from 47-yards oHv to have a five-yard permit" nullify the goal and force his longer range boot. At Southern Methodist. John Richey kicks 'em barefoot if he has to. He beat the Air Force 9-7, breaking a 13-game victory drought for the Mustangs, with a 30-yard barefoot shot. "The teams all are trying to protect themselves against the two-point situation," says SMU Coach Bill Meek. "And ' a field goal does it." Greg Mather, Navy's fine nnd, beat Notre Dame 13-10 last week with a 22-yard field goal, his second of the game, and eighth of the year. He kicked three in one game, a 37-1!) win over Detroit. "Any time we get within shooting distance, he's a threat and shooting distance for him is anywhere across the 50," says Navy Coach Wayne Hardin of Mather. "That takes a lot of pressure off our quarterbacks." Scores From OTTAWA BOWL 418Vs N. Main Phone CH 2-9741 Tl'ESUAV NIGHT LADIES KOFO—I 1st and 3rd Ttl. H. Carey 120 137 161 417 H.

Spivey, former All-America at Kentucky, led the Los Angeles Jets to a 110-98 victory over the San Francisco Saints." Hawkins, formerly of Iowa, sparked the Pittsburgh Rens to a 105-90 triumph over the Chicago Majors. Cohen, former William and Mary star, helped the Hawaii Chiefs whip the Washington Tapers 9176. Dan Swartz outscored his teammate Spivey, 29 points to 28, but the 7-foot-l star got 18 of his in the second half and helped break a tie with four minutes left. Hawkins tossed in 27 points as the Rens built up a 20-point lead in the first three quarters and coasted against Chicago. Cohen got 8 field goals and 4 fouls for 20 points as the Hawaii team made a successful debut in league competition. Rate Listen No. 1 Challenger Again By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP - "That's good, that's good, now I won't have to knock off that Britisher to get to that title." This was Sonny Liston talking today after the National Boxing Association Tuesday restored him as No. 1 challenger for Floyd Patterson's heavyweight title in its month ratings. In its previous ratings, the NBA had listed England's Henry Cooper as the ranking contender for Patterson's crown, ignoring Liston because of his most recent brush with the law. "Maybe I don't have to fight that Cooper now to show who's who," grinned Sonny, who doesn't grin easily. The NBA now rates Cooper fourth. Liston, 28, has spent most of his bizarre career winning fights in the ring, losing scrapes outside the ring and never quite catching up with Patterson. At the moment, he may be on Gopher End Top Lineman MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-"I don't know what to say. I'm very grateful to everyone for helping me get such an honor." That was end Tom Hall's reaction today after being named Associated Press Lineman of the Week for his play in Minnesota's 13-0 upset victory over Michigan State Saturday. "It sure feels good," Hall continued in his soft-spoken manner. "Give the credit to Butch Nash, though. He's the one who has done the most toward my receiving this honor." Nash is Minnesota end coach. Hall, tabbed by Minnesota coaches as one of the most underrated players in the Big Ten, was very instrumental in last week's victory, Minnesota's fourth straight in conference play. the glory trail. He now goes to his "rehabilitation center" — to train for his Dec. 4 bout with Germany's Albert Wcstphal, a master baker from Hamburg. The Philadelphia bout will be part of a fistic TV doubleheader, also including Patterson's title defense against Tom McNcely in Toronto. Listen, also rated the No. 1 contender by Ring magazine, not only has put himself in the hands of a new manager, George Katz, but also those of a Denver priest, Rev. Edward Murphy. "I'm glad of a new chance and I hope to make the best of it," said Lislon who was in Chicago for a Monday night exhibition with Chicago's Ernest Terrell. "I think I've found a true friend in Father Murphy — and that makes a lot of difference after all the trouble I've been in," said the hulking Liston, who has won 32 of 33 bouts and knocked out 22 opponents. Liston hasn't fought a regular bout since last March when he kayoed Howard King in Florida. Meanwhile, he had to unburden himself of connections which brought him before a congressional committee and also get straightened out once more after a brush with the law. Open Improved Road Section RESERVE, Kan. (AP) - An overhauled section of U.S. 73 around Reserve, from the Kansas- Nebraska line to a point 6V£ miles north of Hiawatha, was opened to traffic Tuesday. The $750,000 improvement project has been under way more than a year. U.S. 73 is a link between Kansas City and Omaha. Bridges Leads ABL Scoring CHICAGO (AP) - Bill Bridges, a 6-foot-5 forward with Kansas I City, is leading the American Basketball league in scoring with a 25.3 game average through Monday's games. Bridges has 76 points in three games and holds a narrow lead over Roger Taylor of Cleveland in the newly formed league. Taylor has averaged 24.5 in two games and Hal Lear of Los Angeles has a 24.0 mark. Defense apparently is receiving considerable attention in the ABL. Only one team is averaging better than 100 points a game and that is the Los Angeles Jets with a 109.3 average.
