'Belt' On BYU Helmets Meant Belt Arizona; Cougars Did Mat By TRACY RINGOLSBY UP! Sports Writer There was no way that Brigham Young could beat Arizona. Arizona was the preseason pick to win the Western Athletic conference. The 14th- ranked Wildcats had been upset a week ago by Texas Tech for their first loss and would be ready to bounce back. Arizona had beaten BYU four straight years. And the game was at Tucson. But there turned out to he one way — Gary Shcidc's way. Sheide threw for 268 yards and five touchdowns Saturday and the Cougars stunned the 1-ilh- ranked Wildcats 37-13 before a regional television audience. It was the fourth straight game in which BYU has scored over 30 points — all in the WAC — as the Cougars, who lost their first three games of the year in miserable fashion, ran their WAC record to 3-0-1 and overall mark 3-3-1. ARIZONA STATE also maintained a clean WAC slate at 3-0 with a 41-7 win over New Mexico, which played without national passing .leader Steve Myer, out with a knee inuury, and Wyoming won its first WAC game in four tries,. 31-13 over winless Utah, in other league games. In non-conference action, freshman Ray Hr.it ran for 91 yards and scored four touchdowns as Texas El Paso beat Texas-Arlington and Colorado State lost receiver Dan O'tlourkc with a broken arm, quarterback Mark Discoll with a knee injury and the game 4H-9 to Arkansas. "PRIMARILY OUR game plan was to tuke away Ihcir running game and force them into a passing game," said BYU coach I.avcll Edwards, happy that his offense if finally clicking consistently. "We were really ready and we managed to maintain our poise throughout." Arizona had only 123 yards rushing and quarterback Bruce Hill threw five interceptions, three in the first half when Cougar defenders jarred the ball from Arizona receivers. "OUR PLAYERS wore the word 'BELT' on their helmets all week because we didn't feel they had been hitting hard enough," siad BYU assistant Dick Felt. Wyoming had only one sustained drive as mistake- prone Utah saw its record fall to 0-6. The Cowboys got three touchdown runs from Robbie Wright and a 13-yard scoring scamper by quarterback Rick Coslello, who kicked a field goal to boot. Alex Stenccl returned an interception for one touchdown and Bo Warren hac! an interception and Rocky Matuali had a fumble recovery to set up two other scores as the 17lh- rankcd Sun Devils turned to defense for success once again. Dos Lagos Ladies Slate Net Meet Dos Lagos Women's Golf Assn. will hold a low net tournament sponsored by Montana Mining tomorrow. Tee off time will be 8:30 a.m. Pairings will be in the clubhouse. By BOB INGRAM GIL BARTOSH is generally a good-natured, even-tempered coach. But he got lough with his UTEP Miners Saturday—for the first time this season. It was half time at Texas Ranger Stadium in the football game between the U.T. Arlington Mavericks and the Miners. The score was 14-14. The Miners had been favored to win by a comparative easy score. Instead, they had fumbled and stumbled in the first half, had committed a number of unecessary fouls and had played tag instead of tackle with Arlington backs. "You should have seen the way I chewed 'em out at halftime," he said. "\Ve had helped Arlington, too much. I told 'cm we were in the fight of our lives in the second half," Barton said. Bartosh conceded lhat perhaps the Miner players had too many distractions. It was the first game they had played in Texas outside of El Paso this year. Relatives and friends from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, from Houston, San Antonio and other parts of the state greeted the Miner players who may have thought the game was secondary. They came back and put first things first in the second half against Arlington and won 2814. It still wasn't an artistic victory but it was the first road win for a Miner team since 1971 when they beat Wyoming 12-7 at Laramic. Sun Devil Defense Worries Bcrtosh THIS WEEK the Miners are on the road again, for the fifth week in a row, meeting the vaunted Ariiono Suite Sun Devils Saturday night in Tempe. They'll probably play the Sun Devils without tailback Mike Bclcw who pulled up lame on a 39-yard run against Arlington in the first quarter last Saturday. Belew pulled a leg muscle and played no more in the game. Charles (Flash) Collins, split end who sprained an ankle early in the Arlington game, may also miss the Arizona Slate game. The Sun Devils, now a heavy favorite to win the Western Athletic Conference tillc after a 41-7 win over New Mexico while Arizona was losing 37-13 lo Brigham Young, may be the best defensive team in Frank Kush's reign at ASU. "The key will be our ability to move the ball," said Barlosh. "They are a tough team to score on." The Miner coach believes Robert Elliott, the heralded Bel Air back, will be ready to play against ASU. Elliott has been cured of a hip-pointer. A slow starter this season, he'll gel a good chance to carry ihe ball against the Sun Devils. Passes to Belvin Set Up two IDs RAY HOLT, the freshman from Bay City, Texas, who scored all of the Miners' touchdowns against Arlington, will start at the tailback post this week. Holt scored the touchdowns on short runs of two, one, seven and one yards. for 3D yards helped pave the way for anolher one. Two of the Miner touchdowns were set-up on long pass gains, Bobby McKinley lo Art Bclvin, and Belew in breaking for 39 yards helped pave the way for another one. Tanny Johnson helped also in getting the Miners inlo scoring territory, playing his best game of the season. He had 61 yards in rushing, reeling off a 29-yard sprint on one occasion. Holt had 91 yards. He had a run of 27 yards. McKinley, with six completions in nine attempts, helped the Miners roll up 161 yards in the air. It was a good day for him. However, the Miners remain still a running team mainly. They made 263 yards on the ground against Arlington. Holt won the Gold Helmet award this week for his offensive showing while Hal Barnett took the gold hat on defense. The Miner detensivc end had 10 tackles and three assisted tackles. Nightmarish 2nd Mav Touchdown IN THE FIRST quarter of Ihe Arlington game, the Miners scored a touchdown. The Mavericks came back and scored right after that on a 23- yard run by Elmo Simmons. The Miners scored their second touchdown in the second How Scoring Went in Miner-Maverick Game FIRST QUARTER Miners went 72 yards in 7 plays with a 39-yard run by Mike Belew featuring the drive. Holt drove through left side for 2 and touchdown. Bronko Belichesky converted. Miners 7, UT-Arlington 0. 6:57 left. Mavericks drove 62 yards in five plays with Elmo Simmons running last 23-for touchdown. Gary Briscoe failed to convert. Miners 7, Arlington 6. 4:45 left.

Miners i 14, Arlington 6. 1:03 loft. After a kickoff return of 52 yards by Eugene Avers, a 15- yard face mask penalty and two five-yard offside penalties against the Miners plus a 15- yard run by Vic Morris. Ronnie Barnett passed to Simmons for two points. Miners 14, Arlington 14. 13 seconds left. THIRD QUARTER McKinley passed to Belvin for 32 yards to Arlington's 7. Holt ran 7 yards for touchdown.

Miners 28, Arlington 14. 4:51 left. quarter with 1:03 left. Nightmarish proceedings followed. The Miners wanted a flat kickoff. But it was a line drive kickoff and Eugene Ayers. the Maverick return man, brought it back 52 yards. To compound Miner mistakes, he was face-masked as he was tackled and that meant UTEP lost 15 more yards. Two Miner offside penalties contributed to Paredes, Miner Quarterback, Returns Home Freshman quarterback Freddy Paredcs has fjuit the U.T. El Paso football team and nas returned to his home in Harlingen, Texas, coach Gil Bartosh announced today. The reasons for the player's departure were personal, said Bartosh. A SERIES of injuries that started at the beginning of football practice and delayed his progress are believed to have contributed to his decision to quit the team. He may return to school here in the second term and be eligible for play next fall. Bartosh said. The Miners have three quarterbacks. The group is headed by Bobby McKinley. Don Amcrson, a freshman, is running on the second team, and Joe Flores, a sophomore, is No. 3. Arlington's second touchdown made by Vic Morrison a two- y ard run. Then the Miners were fooled on a fake extra point conversion. The Mavs went for a pass and completed it to tie the score. It wasn't hard to sec why Bartosh went into the dressing room steamed up. The game was played on the outfield of the Texas Ranger Stadium grass that furnished good footing. The press box was far away. Fifty- yard seats on the infield side of the field went begging. Most of the sparse crowd of 4,600 sat in the center field bleachers. Evening TD Club Has Dad-Kid Nite It'll be Father-Son- Daughter Night for the Evening Touchdown Club tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. at the Airport Holiday Inn. Special door prizes, including an autographed football, will be given to the children. Members of the U.T.-E1 Paso coaching staff will attend the meeting. All TD Club members are urged to attend. Says Coach Elliott U.T. El Paso Miners may not have had the physical edge over any of their first six opponents in football this year but. they out-manned U.T. Arlington Saturday night in the Texas Ranger Stadium, according to the Mavericks coach, Bud Elliott. "We were outmanned again physically and I feel that was the difference in the game." said Eliott after the Miners beat his Mavericks 28-14. "We got into a depth factor and it began to show in the second half. "THE MINERS aren't a winner yet. But they are a year ahead of us in rebuilding. I'd love to have their people." Elliott said two or three things happened in the last half that turned the game around after his team had played the Miners to a 1-1-14 tie in the first half. "WE HAD two incompletcd passes and showed some inability to execute the option," ha said. "And it didn't help for the Miners to stick the ball in so easy in the third quarter. We made some big plays in the first half that we didn't make in the second half ." The Mavericks go to Stockton, Calif., to play University of Pacific this week. They had only one injury in the Miner game. Linebacker Glenn Byrd suffered a sprained ankle. DAYTON DELUXE 78 FULL 4 PLY POLYESTER WHITES C78-13 ... C78-14 ... E73-14 ... F78-14 ...
