Four HOPE (ARK.) STAR Tuesday, November 5. Comparison time for top teams By The Associated Press Tbe time for college football comparisons is here. Is Ohio State better than Oklahoma? Is Michigan better than Ohio State? Is Alabama better than all of them? Texas, ranked 12th, is "a lot better" offensively than top- rated Ohio State, Coach Dave Smith of Southern Methodist said Saturday after his club bowed to the Longhorns 35-15. Five weeks earlier, SMU lost to Ohio State 28-9. Alabama is "better than Florida," Mississippi State's Bob Tyler said after his 17th- ranked team absorbed a 35-0 licking at the hands of the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide. State's only other setback was a 29-13 loss to Florida, also five weeks ago. Saturday, No. 11 Florida ended fifth-ranked Auburn's unbeaten season 25-14. "I don't see a heckuva lot of difference between their defenses; they're both fine," Colorado's Bill Mallory said in comparing ninth-ranked Nebraska and No. 2-rated Oklahoma. Nebraska throttled Colorado 35-15 Saturday while Oklahoma trampled the Buffs 49-14 two weeks ago. Throwing comparisons — and another opponent — to the winds, Ohio State did nothing to diminish its No. 1 standing. Archie Griffin set an all-time record by rushing for more than 100 yards for the 18th consecutive regular-season game and the Buckeyes trounced Illinois 49-7, making Woody Hayes one of the few coaches to reach 200 victories. Meanwhile, Oklahoma whipped Iowa State 28-10 — it. was 28-0 until the final two minutes — and No. 3 Michigan struggled past Indiana 21-7. Southern California, rated sixth, had to come from behind to tie Cahornia 15-all but the rest of The Associated Press Top Ten all prevailed. Seventh-ranked Notre Dame rallied for a pair of fourth-period touchdowns and shaded Navy 14-6, No. 8 Texas A&M tripped Arkansas 20-10 and lOth-ranked Penn State edged No. 15 Maryland 24-17. Besides Florida and Texas, IGth-rankcd Miami of Ohio was the only other member of the Second Ton to win. The Redskins clobbered Western Michigan 31-0. Ohio SUite'.s Griffin rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns, and Cornelius Greene ran for 127 yards and one touchdown and passed for another 127 and two scores. Oklahoma maintained its half-game lead in the Big Eight over Nebraska and Missouri — a 52-15 winner over Kansas State — as Elvis Peacock and Grant Burgct ran for touchdowns and Steve Davis passed to Joo Washington and Tinker Owens for two more. The Soon- crs, though, were held to 198 rushing yards, by far their lowest of the year. But Hice toppled No. 13 Texas Tech 21-7, Texas-El Paso stunned No. 14 Arizona State 31-27, Washington bombed No. 18 UCLA 31-9 and Cincinnati nipped No. 19 Temple 22-20. San Diego State and Wisconsinn tied for 20th, both lost, the former to Nortli Texas State 14-9 and the latter to Michigan State 2821. Michigan's Gordon Bell came off the bench and rushed for 159 yards and two second- period touchdowns as the Woverines remained tied with Ohio State atop the Big Ten. Five Alabama players — Robert Fraley, Calvin Culliver, Richard Tocld, Randy Billingsley and Ray Sewell—scored on short runs against Mississippi State as the Crimson Tide opened a one-game bulge over Florida and Georgia in the Southeastern Conference race. Florida chewed up Auburn's vaunted defense for 324 yards on the ground, with Jimmy DuBose smashing inside for 143 and Tony Green running wide for 78. Hope Star Knife Sports O-State, Sooner* still run one-two Rams outlast 49'ersfor win By ERIC PREWITT AP Sports Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The Los Angeles Ranis' defense stopped San Francisco's running attack virtually all the time, and linebacker Isiah Robertson stopped new 49er quarterback Norm Snead just in time. "We played well enough to win, and that's all we're trying to do — win," said Rams' quarterback James Harris after Monday night's 15-13 National Football League victory. But he admitted that Snead and the 49ers "scared us to death in the second half." The 49ers went down passing as they suffered their sixth consecutive defeat this year and their ninth straight loss to the Rams. Running backs Wilbur Jackson and Larry Schreiber totaled just 40 yards rushing. Robertson was awarded the game ball, the one he'd grabbed while intercepting a Snead pass at midfield with 4:09 left in the nationally televised game. The 35-year-old Snead, in his debut with the 49ers, had tossed a 39-yard touchdown pass to Gene Washington a few minutes earlier to cut Los Angeles' lead to two points. After the interception, the Rams' offense killed the clock, moving inside the 49ers' five- yard line before the game ended. "Jim Harris did a fine job running the offense at the end of the game when we had to suck it up and control the football," said Coach Chuck Knox Not always agreed on!!

"That was a good win for us." The victory made the Rams 6-2 and gave them a stranglehold on the National Conference's Western Division race, with second-place New Orleans standing 3-5. The 49ers and Atlanta Falcons share last place with 2-6 records. Harris had his moments earlier in the game, too, including Foreman to ask for fight probe PARIS (AP)—Former world heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman cried 'foul' again, citing three irregularities that he said accounted for his loss to new titleholder Muhammad All last week. After viewing films Monday for the first time of his eight- round knockout loss to Ali in Kinshasa, Zaire last Wednesday, Foreman accused All's handlers of loosening the ropes and padding the canvas. In ad- ditionn he claimed he was the victim of a fast count. Aaron heads for Brewers By PHIL BROWN Associated Press Writer TOKYO (AP) — Hank Aaron will head home Tuesday with a home run contest trophy which slightly bolsters his position as world home run king, and with an Atlanta uniform he is about to exchange for a Milwaukee baseball suit. Aaron wore Atlanta Braves ^uniform No. 44 when he beat Japanese slugger Sadaharu Oh 10-9 in a home run contest Saturday before some 50,000 spectators and a national television audience in the United States. Neither slugger considered the contest a decisive way to determine who is the world's best home run hitter, but both expressed happiness at the chance to compete on the same field. Then came the news Sunday that Aaron had been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, returning him to the city where he started the baseball career in which he has rapped out 733 home runs. The 40-year-old star said he is thrilled to go back to Milwaukee, but added, "I don't know how many home runs I will hit with the Brewers — I make no prediction. It is not likely he will hit enough to keep his record out of the reach of the 34-year-old Chinese-Japanese first base man for Tokyo's Yomiuri Giants. Oh says he expects to play at least six more years, and reckons he will boost his total — now 634 — to 800 home runs in four or five years. Aaron acknowledges that likelihood and expresses amazement at the power and timing of the slender-looking Oh, who raises his right leg high and lashes out with wrists made powerful by swinging a bamboo sword Samurai warrior style. Oh hit nine out of 20 fair balls into the seats of Korakuen Stadium, at least 300 feet away, in Saturday's contest but Aaron hit 10 homers in 18 fair balls and then passed up his last two chances. Balls, strikes and fouls were not counted. ND 9 Bama in Orange Bowl is likely match-up Date Hov. Day A.M. Minor Mujur P.M.

That would mean a rematch of the 1974 Sugar Bowl game in which the Irish claimed the national title, beating the Crimson Tide, 24-23. Dr. Frank Rentz, president of the Orange Bowl Committee, said Monday that the athletic boards of both schools are due to meet this week to vote on the Orange Bowl bid. He said the game could be worth $600,000 to each team. Harvard's only postseason football game resulted in a 7-6 victory over Oregon in the 1920 Rose Bowl game. "I'm not making excuses for my loss, or for the tactlical mistakes," Foreman told a news conference. "There were just things that happened because Zaire is an inexperiencd country that had never had a championship fight before or dealt with pros like All's people." Foreman asked for a probe to investigate his claims. "I'm not asking for anyone to give me my title back," Foreman said during a stopover here. "But I feel there should be a probe into what happened. "If I'm right, it would put Ali in a moral position where he would have to give me a rematch. I'd fight him for nothing." Meanwhile, Ali's trainer, Angelo Dundee admitted that he and Murray Goodman worked on the ropes but said there was nothing sinister in that activity. "I make it a point to check the ring before every fight," Dundee said fom Miami Beach, 1 Fla. "Goodman and I went out in the morning to check the ring. It was terrible. The ring ropes were loose as a clothes line. a 23-yard touchdown pass to tight end Bob Klein which gave the Rams a 12-0 lead in the second period. The 27-year-old Grambling product who took over two weeks ago for John Hadl — now with Green Bay — completed 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards. But placekicker David Ray, O-for-2 on extra point tries against the 49ers, provided the points which ultimately made the difference when he booted a 20-yard field goal early in the fourth period to give the Rams a 15-6 lead. The 49ers had closed the gap to 12-6 on a pair of field goals by Bruce Gossett, who also had a third-quarter attempt blocked. Snead, traded by the New York Giants the same day Hadl left Los Angeles, replaced rookie quarterback Tom Owen at the start of the second half and completed 11 of 17 passes for 149 yards against the Rams' defense and the always tricky Candlestick Park winds. "It was second and 20, and we needed more than two yards by Snead," he said. The Rams' defensive front four, with a conference-high 28 sacks this season, got to Owen three times and forced him into a fumble which set up Harris' touchdown pass. Los Angeles drove 80 yards for its first touchdown with Tony Baker scoring on a one-yard run. By The Associated Press Ohio State and Oklahoma continue to run 1-2 in The Associated Press college football rankings this week but Alabama pulled ahead of Michigan into third place while Texas A&M and Florida showed significant gains. The Buckeyes of Ohio State received 49 first-place votes and 1,212 of a possible 1,240 points from a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters following their eighth consecutive triumph, a 49-7 whipping of Illinois. Meanwhile, 7-0 Oklahoma turned back Iowa State 28-10 and received 10 first-pla ce ^' lots and 1,090 points. Ohio State's margin last week was 1,222-1,123. Alabama put on an impressive performance in trouncing Mississippi State 35-0 and moved up from fourth to third, trading places with Michigan, which was hard-pressed to beat Indiana 21-7. Alabama received two first-place votes and 918 points while Michigan got the other first-place vote and 850 points. Texas A&M, eighth the last three weeks, climbed to fifth by defeating Arkansas 20-10. Auburn, which had been fifth for three weeks, slipped to 10th following its first defeat of the year, a 25-14 loss to Florida which lifted the Gators from llth to sixth. Southern California, which had been sixth, skidded to llth after being held to a 15-15 deadlock by California. Perm State defeated Maryland, another ranking team, 2417 and rose from 10th to seventh. The Nittany Lions edged ahead of Notre Dame's defend* ing national champions, who dropped from seventh to eighth after a hard-fought 14-6 victory over Navy. Nebraska, a 31*15 victor over Colorado, remained in ninth place, with Auburn rounding out the Top Ten. Southern Cal headed the Second Ten, followed by Texas, Miami of Ohio, Maryland, Houston, Arizona State, Oklahoma State and California, with Pitt and Texas Tech tied for 19th. Despite its loss to Penn State, Maryland went from 15th to 14th. The Terrapins' three defeats have been at the hands of Top Ten teams. Last week's Second Ten consisted of Florida, Texas, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Maryland, Miami, Mississippi State, UCLA and Temple with San Diego State and Wisconsin tied for 20th.
