*#/" Bottom Ten earns its own ranking By STEVE HARVEY Maybe Northwestern (0-6-1) leads The Bottom Ten because it has an identity crisis. After all, it has no last name. Northwestern what? Evanston? Illinois? Hemisphere? What if South Carolina was named South? Or William & Mary was just William & ? Then, too, Northwestern has one of the most common nicknames (Wildcats) — shared by Kansas State, Kentucky, and Arizona State among ipfhers. Hence, the talk of a merger "(Northwestern Kentucky State?). Elsewhere, UPI's Top Ten (ranked eighth last week) was replaced in that spot by The Bottom Ten, which \®>n five games. No. 3 UTEP (1-6), 'playing against doctor's orders, fell W BYU, 44-0. -ROUT OF THE WEEK: North- vjestern vs. Ohio State (parental dis- cretion advised). CRUMMY GAME OF THE WEEK: Vanderbilt vs. Ole, Ole Miss. QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Their defense is more tenacious this year than a year ago," Michigan coach Bo Schembechler said of Wisconsin, following his team's 42-0 win. Last year, Michigan beat Wisconsin, 56-0. SPECIAL CITATION: California set a record for most yards gained by a team losing, 45-0-377.

(UPI) - Wichita State linebacker Brian Anderson, who was credited with nine tackles during the Shockers 33-7 win over Southern Illinois, has won his second Missouri Val- • ley Conference defensive player of the week award. Anderson, who was his first award for his performance during the Shockers 20-10 season-opening win against Oklahoma State, was honored for his tackles, his two pass interceptions, his fumble recovery and for forcing a second fumble. He was involved in two Wichita State touchdowns. West Texas State tailback David Johnson won the offensive player of the week award. He was honored for gaining 171 yards on 24 carries during the Buffs' 36-7 win over Indiana State last weekend. Wichita State coach Jim Wright said he learned something about Anderson during the Oklahoma State game — this his linebacker has a knack for coming up with big play. During the SIU game Saturday, the Shockers scored their first touchdown when Anderson intercepted an Arthur Williams' pass and returned it 2 yards for a score. The Shockers later expanded their margin when Anderson forced a second half fumble that teammate Willie Smith recovered in the end zone for a touchdown. "Brian has developed a knack for coming up with the big play," Wright said. "He makes things happen because of his quickness and his knowledge." Manucci, Sims top Big 8 stats KANSAS CIT,Y, Mo. (UPI) - Halfback Billy Sims of Oklahoma and quarterback Dan Manucci of Kansas State again dominate the Big Eight individual statistics this week with leads in two categories apiece. Sims, who rushed for a career-high 231 yards against Iowa State last Saturday, is averaging 139.1 yards per game rushing for a 36-yard cushion over I.M. Hipp of Nebraska. He also leads in scoring with 11 touchdowns in seven games for an average of 9.4 points every Saturday. Manucci maintained his season-long, lead in both passing and total offense. The senior from Tempe, Ariz., has completed .534 percent of his passes for 1,509 yards and eight touchdowns and is averaging 196.3 total yards per game.

Rodriguez scored three times and Brummer once as North beat South, 20-8. (Journal Photos by Glenn Kearns) North beats South, completes 3rd straight undefeated season By GLENN KEARNS Salina South Junior High hadn't lost a fumble all football season. But Tuesday night the young Cougars lost the ball twice and it spelled disaster. North Junior High took advantage of both fumbles to score touchdowns in a 20-8 victory over their cross-town rivals. The victory extended North's winning streak to 18 games — three perfect seasons. Ironically, the last team to beat the North gridders was South four years ago. North finished its season at 6-0 while South, which has lost only two games in the past two years (both to North), finished at 5-1. South took the opening kickoff and drove successfully against the wind, but lost its first fumble of the season at the North 12-yard line. Ray Rodriguez sprinted across his left tackle on North's first play and rambled 88 yards to score. Don Whiteley ran in the conversion for an 8-0 North lead. Rodriguez took off again in the second quarter and scored from 51 yards out. The conversion attempt failed and North had a 14-0 lead at halftime. North took the second half kickoff, but fumbled the ball away to South on the first offensive play. Brad Brummer, the workhorse of the South offensive unit all year, used only three rushing plays to give South a TD. He picked up short yardage his first try then rambled 37 yards to the one-yard line before scoring on the next play. Brummer added the two-point conversion run to cut the North lead td-148. ; : Another South fumble early in the fourth quarter set up the final North TD. North took^over and used a ball control offense to eat up some six minutes of playing time before Rodriguez plunged over from five yards away for the final TD.
