Defensive Changes Help UTEP in Second Half Againt Rams Here's ASU, M El Paso Herald-Post PORTS Edited by Bob Ingram Page C-4 Monday, October 19. 1970 2 No-Ball Control Performances BOBBY DOBBS WAS asked last week if Colorado State's Rams were a ball-control team. "No," he said emphatically, "they're not." That proved true in the wild-scoring cliff-hanger the L.T. El Paso Miners won from CSU 41-37 Saturday in Fort Collins. The Rams had a 13-point lead going into the fourth quarter and couldn't protect it. „ The Miners themselves proved no great shakes as a can control team when they took the lead for the first time with 4:02 left in the game. „ They got the ball twice after that and didn t do very well in battling the clock. . , On their first possession after their winning touchdown, they couldn't make a first down. And on their second possession of the ball, they fumbled it to CSU with 33 seconds left. It brought on traumatic neurosis with the Rams naturally trying lor that last gasp victory They missed by four or five feet or the margin by which Wayne Smith, the CSU quarterback, missed a receiver in the end zone. Craigo Doesn't Do Flop Down WITH JUST a few ticks of the clock left and CSU having only one time out, it was natural to suppose that Billy Craigo would grasp the ball to his bosom and fall spread legged down on the ground until the clock ran out. But instead, he handed it off to Phil Hatch who fumbled to CSU. There was just enough time for CSU to tnrow four The U.T. Miners were flat going ir.to the Colorado State game at Fort Collins Saturday. 1: rook the ma good while to put things together and gain a 41-37 victor.'. It's a tribute to them that when things got the roughest ar Fort Collins they goi tough. Bobby Dobbs blamed their flatness a; the start on the fact n when the Miners won the old Border Conference title thev played West Texas in Canyon. The Miners had already won the title but were trying to go undefeated in the loop The score was 13-13 with seconds to go. West Texas had the ball at its end of the field. The Buffs felt pleased to be get- tine a tie All they needed to do was to run out the few remaining seconds on the clock. The WT quarterback handed the ball oK There was a fumble. The Miners recovered and Truman Hobbs, an unsung sub, kicked a field goal to give the Miners a 16-13 win. Lack of Communications IN THE THIRD QUARTER of the CSU game, Craigo hit BiHy Taylor down the left sidelines. Taylor went to the six after breaking a tackle and regaining his balance. On the first play. Hatch drove to the one. CSU was offside on the play. The option, of course, rested with the Miners. It was presumed the penalty would be declined. But the official picked up the ball and put it on the three, which was a half-the-distance-to-the-goal line penalty. The press box couldn't believe it. It shook Dobbs too but he had no way of changing the decision. Lewis Brooks, one of the tn- captains, said he had told the official the Miners would take the play and not the penalty. The official apparently misunderstood him. This lack of communication most likely cost the Miners a touchdown. Running from the three, they fumbled the ball to CSU. They could have hardly missed making it m three tries from the one. Reynolds: Horns and Halo NATURALLY, MIKE REYNOLDS pulled a no-no by stepping out of the end zone on a kick off reception and then stepping back in giving CSU a safety. But' he redeemed himself thoroughly by running a punt back all the way-61 yards. He was sprung for the last charge to the goal line by a beautiful block by Gary Merrell on about * e Craigo broke Billy Stevens' old record of 500 passing yards hv throwing for 507 yards. 7 He was phenominal in the first three quarters, completing •" of 35 passes for 425 yards. " His top receiver as usual was Eddie Puishes who caught nine for 198 and on one occasion looked like he was gone for a touchdown. Billy Taylor was also busy with six receptions for 136 vards and two touchdowns. \nd little Juan Borrego made the biggest catch of them all, a 41-yard pass that set-up the Miners' winning touchdown. Like Indianapolis 500 JEFF WHITE TURNED in his best kicking performance. He had three 32-yard field goals and his punting was consistently good. Dobbs used a new kickoff man, Jaime Chavando, and" he didn't do badly. Every conceivable way to score was utilized in the game except two—scoring on an~intercep:ed pass and a blocked punt. There were nine touchdowns, tow safeties, two punt returns for touchdowns, one kickoff return for a touchdown, three field goals, SS passes thrown, 704 pards in passes, etc. You could write a book on it. It's hard to condense that kind of game into a story or a couple of stories. \ whole chapter could be written on what happened after the Miners went ahead. Twice, Jim Sanson, the linebacker, picked off CSU passes to stop drives. Jerry Wampfler, the CSU coach, said the only place where vou coufd see that much yardage was at the Indianapolis 500. So many unexpected things happened that had the Rocky Mountains, seen in the distance, started crumbling and toppling over (as 1 once saw them do in a movie), maybe nobody would have been surprised.

(UPI Photo) Raiders Lose to Old Nemesis Purple Frogs Get Their Pride Back By MIKE RABUN UPI Sports Writer It's nice every now and then to have one of those almost perfect nights when everything you touch runs to gold and things are wrapped up way before the shank of the evening. Texas Christia.i had almost forgotten what it was like. But the Horned Frogs remember now, and, naturally, they like what they remember. "We are playing now like we know we can," says TCU coach Fred Taylor. THE SUBJECT of Taylor's joy was the Horned Frogs' 3115 romp over suddenly beleaguered Texas A&M. The victory was a mild upset, but then there was a surprise everywhere you looked on the limited Southwest Conference card last Saturday. Texas Tech got an unpleasant surprise when the Red Raiders old jinx — Mississippi State — did it again. The Bulldogs won 20-16, marking the Pak Song Will Try To Back Vow If Pak Song is able to wrest the world heavyweight wrestling crown from the brow of Dory Funk Jr., in their main event tussle in the Coliseum at 8:30 p.m. today, the giant Korean will have fulfilled a vow made when he arrived here from his native country six months ago. Song said that he came to tliis country for the specific purpose of taking the world heavyweight diadem back to Korea, and the way the giant 6-foot 5-inch 275-pound karate expert has been making a shambles of all opposition on the Southwestern circuit, he very well may do just that. THE NATIONAL Wrestling Alliance has recognized his class and potential and granted sanction to a championship challenge against Funk Jr. tonight. Gory Guerrero, International City Wrestling Club matchmaker, said that several other cities have been bidding for the Song-Funk match, but that ir was granted to El Paso because Song has conducted the major part of his United States campaign in this area. The bout is scheduled for one fall with a one hour limit. RICKY ROMERO, Thunderbolt Patterson, and Terry Funk will join for a three-man tag fracas against Bull Ramos. Apache Gringo, and Bobby Duncum in the evening's semi-final attraction. This one is set for two three falls with a 45-minute time limit.

And although Southern Methodist was a slight favorite over the Rice Owls, few people expected the kind of defensive show the Mustangs put on in their 10-0 decision over Rice. TEXAS, ARKANSAS and Baylor all took the week off. The Longhorns return to action this week against Rice in -Houston, while Arkansas gets back on the field against Wichita in the Wheatshockers first game since a Sept. 25 plane crash killed the school's head coach, athletic director and 13 members of the team. Baylor resumes play against Texas A&M in Waco, and SMU travels to Texas Tech to round out the conference schedule. TCU GETS the week off, and Taylor figures . his Horned Frogs deserve it. "Everything went right for us against A&M, he sn'.d. "Our boys really wanted to win this one." Taylor had been quoted last week as saying the Frogs had "lost their personal pride" in their loss to Oklahoma State. But there was none of that after TCU's win over the Aggies. YoungAggies Beat Miners On Passes The U.T. El Paso Burros today had sustained their second defeat of the season. In their latest setback, they were beaten by New Mexico State freshmen 31-13 in the Sun Bowl. The Miner touchdowns were made by David 'Houx on short runs. Joe Pisarcik passed to Rick Hermansen for one touchdown, hurled to Bob Staten for one and pitched to Jack Collins for a third one. Pisarcik counted again on a keeper-while Sark hit a 50-yard field goal for the young Aggies. The Burros were handicapped by lack of passing attack. Roy Hubbard netting 138 yards rushing for the Burros while Houx had 112 yards. Saturday in the Sun Bowl. The Miners, Dobbs will agree, must get going from the opening whistle to have any chance against the Sun Devils who have beaten UTEP for 13 straight years. The Miners must also play a smarter game and make fewer mistakes than they did against CSU. "We didn't play wel and we were flat defensively in the first half." said Dobbs. "But we got a real fine effort and finally put things together in the fourth quarter." BILL CRAIGO led the Miners to their narrow victory with 507 yards of passes. It beat Billy Stevens' old school record of 500 which he set in his varsity bow against North Texas in 1965. The achievement vaulted the Miner junior into national headlines. He's expected to be named the back of the week in the Western Athletic Conference. Had not_the Miners gotten behind early and had to abandon their game plan, Craigo would not have done so much passing. It was a rough game physically and several of the Miners are bruised today. However, none may not be lost this week. THE BIGOEST adjustment made by the Miners was defensing CSU's option counter in the second half. The play, worked by quarterback Wayne Smith, in pitchouts and hand- ofs to Lawrence McCutcheon and Jake Green, accounted for a lot of CSU's first half yardage. "We put the backs out wider and had them charging from different angles in the second half," Dobbs said. "Our defense improved in the second half. Up until the last two minutes, the Rams made only two first downs in the second half." THERE WERE a goodly number of offensive and defensive stars in the game. Dobbs picked the possible big turning point of the game in the fourth quarter. The Rams held a 37-24 lead. It was at the stage that Mike Reynolds intercepted a ipass. "We scored three plays later," said" Dobbs. "We definitely had the momentum."

One to Forget By STEVE SMILANICH UPt Sports Wrlter Last week Jim Piunkett guided Stanford to its first win in 12 seasons over USC and he followed up that performance by writing his name in the NCAA record book Saturday in a 63-16 shellacking of Washington State. The sturdy Stanford quarterback completed 10 of 14 passes for 224 yards and rushed for 51 yards to push his career total to 6,634 yards, breaking the old NCAA record of 6,568 amassed 1 by Steve Ramsey of North Texas State. BUT WHILE Saturday was a day to remember for Heisman candidate Piunkett, it was a day Heisman candidate Archie Manning of Mississippi would rather forget. Manning turned in his usual sparkling performance but Ole Miss was beaten by lightly regarded Southern Mississippi. a school which hadn't defeated Ole Miss since the two schools began meeting one another in 1913. Southern surprised the mighty Rebels by a 30-14 margin. MISSISSIPPI'S upset was one of several involving the top-ranked teams.
