Four HOPE (ARK.) STAR Monday, November 4. 1974 Hope Star Sports Stretching High Texas, A&M seek conference crown By DENNE H. FREEMAN AP Sports Writer High noon, national television, 80,000 fans in Memorial Stadium, Austin, Nov. 29. That APPEARS to be the setting for the Showdown of the Year to decide the Southwest Conference football championship and host role in the Cotton Bowl New Year's Day. Please underline "appears" because like Texas Tech found out Saturday there are no "gimmies" in the SWC this season. The Texas Longhorns versus the Texas Aggies—shades of the 1950s when their annual meetings at the end of the season on Thanksgiving Day caused many a nervous stomach to pass up the turkey and dressine. Only the league-leading Ag- gies and the fast-closing 'Morns will collide this time on the day after Thanksgiving mainly because that's the way the tele- • vision people and their large wallets so wish it. : The A&M-Texas clash will precede the Auburn Alabama meeting which will tidy up Southeast Conference football matters that day. . However, the Longhorns in particular have to play scared. They lost to Texas Tech in September and were all but written off. Texas hasn't lost since The Air Force Academy football team will play 11 games in 1975, having added Arkansas to rtext year's list. When the New York Mets dropped a 25-inning game to St. Louis, the Mets failed to score in the last 20 Innings of the 4-3 ,test. the Red Raiders fell over the cliff Saturday with a 21-7 loss to Rice. That's SWC defeat No. 2 for Texas Tech and no team has ever won the championship with that many blemishes on the rprord. The Aggies, reiving on the muscle of a punishing defense and an unheralded third string fullback, Jerry Honore, outlasted scrappy Arkansas 20-10 Saturday. The Aggies are in Dallas Saturday to play SMU and Coach Emory Bellard must iron out the wrinkles in his offense which coughed up seven fumbles against the Razorbacks. Also, injuries are a problem. At one time or another, the entire A&M starting backfield was on the bench, nursing hurts. "I thought I was going to have to play myself and that really would have been the 12th man," said Bellard. It must have appeared to Arkansas quarterbacks that A&M was using "12" men on defense as the Cadets sacked Razorback passers eight times, prompting Coach Frank Broyles to mutter "Their pass rush was just overpowering." Texas ground down Southern Methodist 35-15 Saturday and has a 3-1 SWC record. The 'Horns are in Waco Saturday to play the fiesty Bears, who are 2-1 after a 21-7 victory over Texas Christian. "Rice's victory over Tech will give us a psychological lift," said Texas Coach Darrell Royal. "But we're looking just one week ahead." Tech Coach Jim Carlen will say "Amen" to that after heretofore winless Rice sprung its ambush. Camden claws 'Cats in conference battle —Hope (Ark.)

Camden rolled to a 35-6 win over the Bobcats. Cowboys defeat Cardinals to break winning streak By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer "It's nice to win one like that after losing other games on field goals," Dallas Coach Tom Landry said after his straight- shooting Cowboys handed the Cardinals their first defeat of the year, 17-14 on Herrera's 20- yard field goal with four seconds left. Bills 29, Patriots 28 Linebacker Dave Washington ran 72 yards with a pass interception for a touchdown, then blocked a field goal attempt with 50 seconds remaining to help Buffalo win a spine-tingling game from New England. Raiders 28, Broncos 17 Ken Stabler threw four touchdown passes, two each to Cliff Branch and Fred Biletnikoff, to lead Oakland past Denver. Steelers 27, Eagles 0 Pittsburgh's defense allowed only three drives beyond the 50- o yard line and Mel Blount delivered the knockout blow with a 52-yard interception for a touchdown as the Steelers crushed Philadelphia. Vikings 17, Bears 0 Fran Tarkenton threw two second-half touchdown passes, leading Minnesota to an easy victory over mistake-prone Chicago. Dolphins 42, Falcons 7 Don Nottingham scored three touchdowns to lead Miami over Atlanta. Miami quarterback Bob Griese completed 10 of 15 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns. Redskins 17, Packers 6 Washington beat Green Bay behind Billy Kilmer's short passes and a rugged Redskins defense that closed down the Packers' running game. Bengals 24, Colts 14 Ken Anderson passed for three touchdownsn the last one with 90 seconds remaining, to lead Cincinnati over Baltimore. Oilers 27, Jets 22 Dan Pastorini threw a 51- yard pass to Ken Burrough to set up Willie Rodgers' winning touchdown run with 1.-5C to play in Houston's victory over the New York's Jets. Lions 19, Saints 14 Levi Johnson returned a squibbed field goal attempt 78 yards for a second-quarter touchdown and Detroit survived a New Orleans' rally to take a rain-.oaked victory over the Saints. Chargers 36, Browns 35 Kay Wersching kicked a 40- yard field goal with 55 seconds remaining as San Diego, led by the four-touchdown, 333-yard passing of Dan Fouls, beat Cleveland. Giants 33, Chiefs 27 Craig Morton uncorked a 51- yard touchdown pass to Joe Dawkins with 4:13 left in U.it- game to give the New York Giants a close victory over Kansas City. By JOHN MAY Star Sportswriter The Camden Panthers came to Hope last Friday looking to stay alive in the scrambled 7- AA conference race, and when they leu, they carried a convincing 35-7 victoiy and hopes back to Camden. Jerry banKs, a senior halfback caught three passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns, and Dwight Mann carried for 82 yards unofficially and scored twice as the Panthers held Hope in check for most of the night. It wasn't until Jim Byrd, a junior reserve quarterback, came off the bench ant his first four passes in a row that the Bobcats scored. His last strike was a 17-yard toss to Jimmy Williams that put the locals on the Scoreboard with eight minutes left in the same. In the 53-yard scoring drive, Byrd hit four passes in four attempts for 52 yards unofficially. Clay O'Steen, Marshall Scott and Williams caught passes from Byrd. Williams had two receptions. Following the opening kickoff to Camden, the Panthers made one first down and then lined up to punt on a fourth and six at their own 46-yard line. Hope put two men back and rushed nine men. The punter, Doug Smith, lofted a short pass to David Foy, who gathered it in and outraced the Hope defenders to the goal line. The score came with three minutes irnne in the first quarter. The PAT was good. Maim picked up one score when he rambled 11 yards to paydirt with 5:18 left in the first quarter. Jud Martindale led a host of rushers who blocked the PAT.

The Hope squad will travel to Nashville Friday to take on the Scappers in their last game of the season. hoots By The Associated Press Henderson may have to do some schedule shuffling to ever make the NAIA playoffs — the Keddies need to drop Livingston, Ala., State. For the second year in a row, Livingston has ruined Henderson's perfect season and probably knocked the Reddies out of playoff consideration. The culprit Saturday was soccer-style kicker Ron Slovensky, who booted four field goals in a 12-10 victory over the Reddies. Henderson was ranked No. 3 in the NAIA prior to the game, but the NAIA uses only its top four teams for its national championship playoff. A 11-0 loss to Livingston kept Henderson out of playoff consideration last year. In other A1C action this weekend, University of Arkansas—Monticello beat Baptist Christian, 27-0; State College downed Arkansas Tech 37-0; Ouachita Baptist University beat Southern State 15-12; and Texas Lutheran rolled over Harding, 45-0. Slovensky tied a Gulf South Conference record with his four field goals against the Reddies. Freshman Bo Adkisson kicked the Reddies into a 10-0 lead with 9:46 left to play, but Livingston promptly drove 80 yards in 14 plays capped by Slovensky's fourth field goal. Henderson had one last chance to win and moved to a first down at its 35 when Terry Blaylock was intercepted by Livingston's Harold Goodman at the 44 with less than two minutes remaining.
