Section D Monday, Nov. 22, 1971 . Page D-1 El Paso Herald-Post Sports-News Amusements UTEP, Unable to Stop Rams Power. . . Plays Long Beach This Week Miners Choke On CSU 'Dust' By BOB INGRAM A football coach watching his team chewed up in sustained marches by the opposition must have the most helpless feeling in the world. Bobby Dobbs stood by and .watched the relentlsss Colorado State Rams, using a three- yard-and-a-cloud-of-dust formula, smash their way on three long drives; in their 24-7 ^victory over the U.T. El Paso * Miners Saturday night in the Sun Bowl. There was nothing Dpbbs and his staff could do. THE MINERS were unable to stop, the power plunges- of Larry -.(The • '€ lilt ah) •McCutsheqn - and his team- 'mates.. 'The .Miner ,defensive line was completely outplayed by the CSU offensive line. CSU gained most of its yardage up the middle, an area exploited the week before by New Mexico. "We simply got overpowered," said. Dobbs, "They came right at us and we couldn't contain them." The defensive' unit, which was the pride and joy of the Miners earlier in the season, has not held up in the last two games. "It has gone down= hill," said Dobbs. "No. question about it." LIKE 0 THE R S who've played the Miners this season, ' Colorado State played its best game, of the season. "By : far ..out best," said ; coach"Jerry. Wampfler, He praised the play of McCucheon who gained 160 yards. "He played on a sore knee," said Wampfler. "It wasn't his best game of, the season but it was a good game for him." COLORADO STATE put Jake Green, a fast back, into the game in the second half and he and McCutcheon com. plemented each other well. "Green took some of the pressure off McCutcheon." The one bright offensive spot for the Miners wps Phil Hatch's 36-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to help tie the score at 7-7. On a fourth . down play, Hatch broke through the line, and had the whole area free of enemy tacklers. "WE HAD A blitz on," said Wampfler, "and our . safety was playing up close to the line," It appeared that the momentum had swung to the Miners but on the next kickoff, the Rams took the ball on their 20 and marched 80 yards in 16 plays with'McCutcheon scoring. It. was the turning point of the game. Early in the fourth .period they went from midfield , after recovering -a UTEP fumble and scored in 16 plays with Larry' Tarver scoring from the two. Bruce Torgerson put frosting on the cake by kicking a • field goal an the fourth of 28 yards. IN THE FIRST quarter, the Ram's- 'went from their 46 • yards in 11 plays to score with Jim Erickson, the quarterback, piling over from the one. Speaking of Erickson, he'was another one of those nimble footed quarterbacks who've ' faced the Miners this year. He threw only three passes but he gained 86 yards carrying the ball. The loss put the Miners in the Western Athletic Conference cellar. They finish the season Saturday by pl-aying Long Beach in the Sun Bowl. Long Beach has an 8-3 record. The Long. Beach 49ers defeated Hawaii in - Honolj'.lu 45-22 , Saturday. Terry Metcalf, the Long Beach star, ran .for-five touchdowns. He'll be. the. big menace' to the Miners Saturday. - ••'-.- 10 From 2 Loops in Postseason Play Big 8 and Dominate By BILL MADDEN UPI Sports Writer The, Big Eight vs. the Southeast — that seems to be college football '71's recurring theme -as the season winds to its close with an endless parade of bowl activity.

Both teams signed for the 1971 Sun Bowl classic following impressive victories Saturday. LSU gave a brilliant display of its credentials by soundly zapping the 7th ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame 28-8 before a nationwide TV.audi- ence, and Iowa State gave a preview of things to, come by laying it on Oklahoma State 54-0 to give the Cowboys their worst beating in several seasons. Both teams now own 7-3 records for the season, and each has a wrap-up game next Saturday: LSU against traditional inter-state rival Tulane, and Iowa State against major -independent San Diego State. .
