THE OTTAWA HERALD Monday, November 20, 1961 Sonny Irked At Rejection Reports By ED CORRIGAN Associated Press Sports Writer While Alabama, the king of college football, debates which bowl offer to accept, a full-scale rhubarb broke out today, triggered by speculation that the University of Colorado was about to be snubbed by the Orange Bowl. Alabama, one of the two remaining major unbeaten powers since the stunning 6-0 defeat of Texas by Texas Christian Saturday, apparently has its choice of the Rose Bowl or Cotton Bowl. 'Bama Coach Bear Bryant confirmed his club had been approached to play in the Rose Bowl, indicating the tradition of plucking a Big Ten team for the Pasadena classic is being scrapped. The Crimson Tide (9-0) can't accept anything until after its final game against Auburn Dec. 2, because of Southeastern Conference regulations. Alabama, No. 2 in the current Associated Press poll, crushed Georgia Tech 10-0 last Saturday. Meanwhile, angry rumblings came from the University of Colorado after reports that the Orange Bowl favored Kansas. The Big Eight sends the visiting team to the Orange Bowl, but it does not have to select the champion. Colorado (8-1) already has clinched at least a tie for the league title, but the Buffalos, according to some members of the Orange Bowl committee, have been unimpressive in their last two starts. Kansas, beaten only by Colorado in the league, has won six straight with an explosive offense. "The contract and the conference should be investigated if we are bypassed," thundered Colorado Coach Sonny Grandelius. I don't care what anyone says, we're the conference champions and we're entitled to play in the Orange Bowl." Kansas, besides losing to Colorado in the Big Eight, dropped a non-league game to Texas Christian and was tied by Wyoming early in the season. With the downfall of Texas there was no team capable of arguing with Alabama for the top spot in the nation. Rutgers (8-0), which already has spurned bowl invitations, is the only other undefeated-untied major team. The Scarlet smothered Colgate 26-6 Saturday. So with the regular season clos- j ing next Saturday, the bowl pro moters still are in a mad scramble. Here is the current rundown: ROSE—Waiting for an answer from Alabama, Assuming the Crimson Tide whips Auburn, Bryant probably will jump at the California trip. This sidetracks the two Big Ten hopefuls, Minnesota (7-1) and Ohio State (7-0-1) The UCLA-Southern California game Saturday will decide the host school. ORANGE — The visiting team will be Colorado or Kansas. Louisiana State, 14-6 winner over Mississippi State, already has disassociated itself with the Sugar Bowl, so probably will wind up in the Orange. COTTON—The sudden downfall of Texas, which had been riding pell-mell toward the national championship, left the Longhorns tied for the Southwest Conference lead with Arkansas. If Texas defeats Texas A&M Thanksgiving Day and Arkansas gets past Texas Tech next Saturday, the two teams will wind up tied for the league crown. Texas will get the Cotton Bowl spot on the basis of a victory over Arkansas. Mississippi (8-1) is the most likely choice to provide the opposition. The Rebels claim they have made no committments. SUGAR—With Alabama looking westward and Louisiana State not interested, the Sugar Bowl is in a tough spot. Georgia Tech, although beaten the last two weeks, appears to be the best of the lot for the host spot. Arkansas, pushed out of the Cotton Bowl, probably will go to New Orleans to provide the opposition GATOR — Miami probably wil lie the home team assuming the Hurricanes beat Northwestern and Florida in their final two games. Maryland and Duke of the Atlantic Coast Conference both would like a bid. Tittle Fires Giants Into First Place By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Y. A. Tittle, New York's bald bomber, has passed the Giants into first place in the National Football League's Eastern Conference donnybrook, but he needed Steers Romp For Fifth Straight By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It took 'em three games to get going, but now the Kansas City Steers seem to have established themselves as the club to beat in the American Basketball League's Western Division. The Steers, after dropping two of their first three games, have won five in a row. They romped over the second place Jets at Los Angeles Sunday, 100-85. Coached by Jack McMahoni former ace of the St. Loalfe Hawks of the National Basketball Association, the Steers are doing it with a balanced attack led by former Kansas Star Bill Bridges. Bridges, top rebounder in the Big Eight conference last season, had 18 points Sunday. Six other Kansas City players also hit double figures. Hal Lear led Los Angeles with 24. Pittsburgh, leading the Eastern Division with a 7-3 record, defeated San Francisco 101-85 in the other league game played Sunday night. Phil Rollins and George Patterson each hit 24 points and Connie Hawkins scored 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. John Berberich had 29 points and 13 rebounds for San Francisco, which rost its fifth in a row. Clint Big 5 9 s Back Of Week SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Thi Big 5 Conference went outside it: family circle for its football bad of the week and gave the honor this week to a Kansas Jayhawker, Curtis McClinton. The conference authorities said Kansas displayed many fine backs in thumping California 53-7 Saturday, but McClinton's four touchdowns and his 97 yards gained on 16 carries impressed them most. a record-breaking performance )y Cleveland's Jimmy Brown to complete the job. While Tittle was leading the jiants to a 42-21 thumping of 'ittsburgh with a three-TD per- 'ormance, Brown rushed for a one-game record of 242 yards and scored four touchdowns as the Browns blitzed Philadelphia 45-24 Sunday and knocked the Eagles out of a tie for the top spot. Brown, league ground gaining champion all four years he's been n the NFL, eclipsed his own mark of 237 yards set in a game in 1957 )y averaging over seven yards a carry, and added 52 yards by catching three passes. The loss was Philadelphia's second in succession—the Giants administered a 38-21 beating last week—and dropped the defending champions into a second-place tie with the Browns, one game back of the Giants. New York is 8-2, Cleveland and Philadelphia 7-3. The Green Bay Packers, playing for the first time without scoring king Paul Hornung, maintained their IVa game edge in the Conference race by whipping Los Angeles 35-17 for an 8-2 record with four games to play. The Detroit Lions, runners-up in the West at 6-3-1, rolled to a 37-10 victory over Minnesota while San Francisco put a damper on Chicago's hopes with a 41-31 triumph over the Bears. Baltimore blanked St. Louis 16-0 and Washington ended its losing streak by tying Dallas 28-28. Tittle, veteran of 14 pro campaigns, completed 19 of 28 passes for 314 yards and made it 15 TD pitches for the season with a nine- yard flip to Joe Walton, a 38- yarder to Alex Webster and a 20 yarder to Kyle Rote. Rote also pulled in a 10-yard touchdown toss from halfback Bob Gaiters while Webster picked up another score on a 32-yard jaunt. The .Giants, winning their eighth in nine games, went ahead to stay on Gaiters' three-yard burst in the second period after a 58-yarrJ Tittle to Rote pass had set it up Buddy Dial scored twice for the Steelers (4-6) on a 15-yard pass from Rudy Bukich and a three- yarder from Bobby Layne, back in action after five weeks. Peace Pact Between KU, Missouri KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A peace pact has been signed by student leaders of the Universities of Missouri and Kansas to avert rowdyism at the Missouri- Kansas football game in Lawrence Saturday. The pact, signed at a meeting Sunday at the K.U. Medical Center, pointed out that both schools have been degraded by brawls at athletic events, and that there is possibility athletic relationships might be broken off. The document included recommendation of punishment for vio- ators, with expulsion from school as the maximum penalty. Max Eberhart of Great Bend, 5.U. student president, said the peace movement has been develo- jing since last spring. "We knew the rivalry between our schools was deteriorating into animosity," Eberhart said. "We wanted to restore a healthy rivalry." He said K.U. fraternities and sororities will hold open houses For Missouri students both before and after the game, while a reception will be held at the Kansas Union building for unaffiliated Missouri students and alumni. Student leaders said both school newspapers will cany editorials urging students and alumni to behave in a mature manner. Blanda Passes For Seven TDs Shockers Get Sun Bowl Bid By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Wichita University Shockers champions of the Missouri Valley Conference, were beaten by Dayton 23-12 in their season finale Saturday but were quickly named to participate in the Sun Bowl at El Paso, Tex., Dec. 30. Coach Hank Foldberg's Shockers finished the regular season with a fine 8-2 record. Their Sun Bowl opponent will be Villanova, which had a 7-2 season. Last Saturday was a miserable day for the Valley. All four of its football playing members were beaten by outsiders. Louisville defeated North Texas 20-0. Miami, Ohio, whipped Cincinnati 7-3 and Iowa State beat Tulsa 27-6. Two games Saturday will complete the regular schedule. Cincinnati will be at home to Detroit and North Texas State will be at By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For a pappy guy who was su- posed to be washed up a month ago, George Blanda is mighty active in professional football. The 33-year-old quarterback, veteran of a dozen years in pro ranks, showed 'em Sunday that there's no substitute for experience—he threw seven touchdown passes in guiding Houston to its fifth straight victory in the American Football League. The Oilers, With Blanda either passing for or kicking all the points — he booted seven extra points—bashed New York 49-13 to stay on top of the Eastern Division by a half-game. The way the Oilers are moving, they look like a pretty good bet to administer the first defeat of the season to San Diego, already champion of the Western Division. San Diego sailed over Dallas 24-14 Sunday for its eleventh straight league victory. But beating Dallas is no particular accomplishment—the Texans have lost six straight. The only other game of importance last week was Boston's 20-17 victory over Oakland. The Patriots stayed tightly in the race for the Eastern Division championship. They don't play Houston again this season but they do play San Diego, which makes things equal. Buffalo beat Denver 23-10 in a so-what game. Neither team is going anywhere right now and Denver obviously will never get there even if it made a big effort. Anything but a feeling of fellowship was prevalent in the Houston-New York game. There were more fights than Madison Square Garden could afford, with three players being put out for their fisticuffs. Both benches were emptied at one stage. There were 193 yards in penalties assessed, mostly because of the fighting. This tied a league record but wasn't as important as Blanda's seven touchdown throws, which broke his own record of four set last year. Pittsburg In Playoff By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS While bowl-bound Pittsburg and Cirksville made preparations for )ig dates this week, other Kansas and Missouri colleges closed the regular football season last weekend. Pittsburg, the nation's No. t small college team, gets the post- 5eason activity underway Thursday in an NAIA play-off game at Pittsburg. The winner of Thurs- day's game advances to the Ca* melia Bowl in Sacramento, Calif. Once beaten Kirksville will meet Parsons (Iowa) Saturday night in the Mineral Water bowl in Excelsior Springs. In snow-filled games last Saturday, Missouri Valley defeated Memphis Naval 38-7; William Jewell trounced St. Benedict's 34-14; Cape Girardeau lost to Murray (Ky) 22-7; Omaha bowed to Drake 36-13; Lincoln University suffered a 39-6 lacing at the hands of ILangston (Okla), He Wasn't Around For Prizes PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP)-Al Keller, veteran driver from Green Acres, Fla., never collected his prizes Sunday for the fastest fime trial at the Bobby Ball Memorial 100-mile auto race in Phoenix. The 41-year-old Keller was killed on the 48th lap of the feature event when his yellow racer hit a rut on the north turn, spun out of control, rolled broadside in the air and landed upside down on a chain link fence. Two other wrecks marred the race, injuring two other drivers. After the race was resumed, Parnelli Jones of Torrence, Calif., drove the Agajanian Willard Battery Special to victory. The race was halted because of darkness after 90 laps. Rodger Ward of Indianapolis finished second and Eddie Sachs of Coopersburg, Pa., was third. "This is the worst track I've ever run on and I've run on a lot of them," Ward said later. I probably said too much already, but I hate to see poor officiating. I think the race could be a good one if enough thought and preparation went into it." Keller, who had been racing since 1938, first raced at the Indianapolis 500 in 1955 when he was involved in a four-car wreck in which Bill Vukovich was killed He finished fifth in last year's 500-mile classic and ranked fifth in the USAC national championship point standings for 1961. Look For New M-State Coach STATE COLLEGE, Miss. (AP —Mississippi State athletic director Wade Walker is looking for a man to succeed him as head football coach. Dr. D. W. Colvard, MSU president, announced Sunday night that the 38-year-old Walker had requested that he be permitted to give up his coaching duties, effective Dec. 2, and devote full time to his post as athletic director. Mississippi has a 5-4 record, its best since 1957, when Walker was named Southeastern Conference coach of the year. It closes out the season Dec. 2 with sixth- ranked Mississippi.
