LOUIS POST-DISPATCH if n - f f sJj V' DUKING 'EMj Michigan running back Harlan Huckleby is stopped for a 1-yard gain by Duke's Rick Sommers (14) in the first quarter Buckeyes Baylor's winless Bears faced almost insurmountable odds Saturday they had to play powerful Ohio State before a packed house at Columbus, Ohio, with venerable Woody Hayes gunning for his 200th victory as the Buckeye coach. But, with less than a minute to go in the non-conference game, the upstart Bears were on the verge of spoiling the odds and Hayes' celebration. Baylor scored a touchdown with 1:49 to go," cutting Ohio State's lead to 34-28, and then forced the Buckeyes to punt. With 48 seconds left, Baylor had the ball at its own 15-yard line and the opportunity to pull off the upset. But the fairy tale ended two plays Seattle Slew Sets Belmont Track NEW YORK (UPI) - Seattle Slew continued his comeback in spectacular fashion Saturday when he blazed to a track record in winning the $163,000 Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park. The muscular brown colt burst from the starting gate and led every step of the way as he took the field of five through fast early fractions at an ever-increasing pace to finish the 1 1-4 mile race in 2:00 flat, 1 4-5 seconds better than the previous mark for races starting on the turn. Ridden by Angel Cordero Jr. to the four-length victory over Exceller, Slew strengthened his bid for a second straight Horse of the Year title with his second consecutive stakes victory. The Triple Crown winner picked up $97,800 in prize money, and became thoroughbred racing's 23rd millionaire with earnings of $1,075,520. Slew was sent off as a prohibitive 1-5 favorite by the crowd of 27,023 and returned $2.60, $2.10 and $2.10. Exceller, ridden by Willie Shoemaker, paid $2.20 and $2.10 and It's Freezing finished third and paid $2.10. Great Contractor and Wise Philip completed the order of finish. The comeback by Slew is one of the more remarkable achievements by a racehorse in this century, for many thought the colt would never run again following his staggering loss on July 3 of last year to J.O. Tobin. It wasn't until May that the colt ran again, and he won two widely separated allowance races against virtually anonymous company.1 before losing his first stakes start on Sept. 5 in the Paterson.

Quarterback Steve Smith, blasted by defensive end Kelton Dansler, fumbled and middle guard Mark Sullivan recovered for Ohio State at the 10 with 36 seconds remaining. The Buckeyes struggled to their second straight triumph since a season-opening loss to Penn State. The frustrated Bears now have lost three games by a total of 12 points. Freshman quarterback Art Schlicht-er, one of the goats in the Penn State loss, sparked the Buckeyes Saturday old brown horse stunned racing fans when he romped to a three-length victory over fellow Triple Crown winner Affirmed in the Sept. 16 Marlboro Cup, finishing just 2-5 of a second off Secretariat's track record of 1:45 2-5. Many had considered Slew just the best of an ordinary lot despite his undefeated sweep through the Triple Crown, but these last two victories not only vindicated the colt but possibly set him up for his second straight championship. Seattle Slew's trainer, Doug Peterson, had indicated the colt's next start would be in the $75,000 Bosburgh in mid-October. However, one of the colt's owners said in the winner's circle afterward that the $300,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup two weeks hence would not be ruled out. "He's the greatest horse I've ever been on," said Cordero. "I'm dying to see him run back against Affirmed in the Gold Cup." MU-Rolla Blanks Evangel, 37-0 ROLLA, Mo. (UPI) Terry Ryan ran for two touchdowns and quarterback Jeff Walters passed for 114 yards and one touchdown Saturday to lead the University of Missouri-Rolla to a 37-0 victory over Evangel College in a non-conference college football game. Jim Lee was the Miners' leading rusher with 85 yards on 12 carries, including a 10-yard touchdown run. Ryan's scoring runs were for 12 and 6 yards. Walters' scoring pass was to Andy Cox for 13 yards.

Duke's Devils didn't do much else to stop the Wolverines, as they lost, 52-0. (UPI Telephoto) Baylor Upset Bid after two of his intercepted passes had helped Baylor to a first-half lead. Ohio State led, 7-0, early on Schlicht-er's 24-yard run, but interceptions by Benny Goodwin and Mike Singletary set up touchdowns that put the Bears on top, 14-7. Ohio State pushed back in front, 17-14, but Baylor marched 74 yards, capped by a 15-yard scoring pass from Smith to Mike Fisher, to take a 21-17 halftime lead. But Schlichter, selected the top high school player in Ohio last year, got the Buckeyes back on top quickly in the second half. He connected with Doug Donley on a 51-yard TD pass early in the third period, putting the Buckeyes ahead, 24-21, and they never trailed thereafter, as they stuck to their usual ground attack. Hayes' record at Ohio State is 200-58-9; he's only the third coach to amass 200 triumphs at one school. His overall college mark, which includes stints at Dennison and Miami of Ohio, is 233-69-6 over 33 years. The late Amos Alonzo Stagg is the winningest coach in collegiate history. He coached Chicago to 243 victories in 41 seasons. MICHIGAN 52, DUKE 0: Duke rolled into Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday with a 2-0 record and high hopes of bumping off the vaunted Wolverines in front of more than 100,000 Michigan rooters. But the Blue Devils' best-laid plans were awry embarrassingly awry. With 104,072 cheering on the Maize and Blue, the Wolverines belied any of Coach Bo Schembechler's fears that they would suffer a letdown after last week's emotional triumph at Notre Dame. Led by senior tailback Harlan Huckleby, Michigan rolled up 388 yards on the ground and 90 in the air while holding the stunned Blue Devils to a total of 76 yards.

Hipp ran for 123 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as 12th-ranked Nebraska set an Indiana Memorial Stadium scoring record, rolling over Indiana, 69-17, in college football at Bloomington, Ind. In recording its third victory in four games, Nebraska tallied the most points ever against Indiana, eclipsing the 68 run up by Purdue 1892. Hipp, a junior, scored three of Nebraska's first four touchdowns in the first period and the Cornhuskers led 35-10 at the half. Nebraska so outclassed the Hoosiers that Husker Coach Tom Osborne used every available player, including three quarterbacks. Hipp gained 123 yards in 21 carries before leaving with five minutes left in the third period. He scored on runs of 9, 6, 8 and 9 yards. His four touchdowns and 24 points also set Indiana Stadium records. Third-string tailback Tim Wurth scored twice and Nebraska's other touchdowns were scored by Rick Berns, Frank Lockett, Bruce Dunning and Jim Kotera. Only one Nebraska touchdown came on a pass, a 27-yard throw from starter Tom Sorley to Lockett in the third period. Sorley completed 8 of 13 passes for 168 yards. Nebraska had 31 first downs for another stadium record. The Hoosiers scored a touchdown and field goal in the second period after recovering Nebraska fumbles. "This is my worst defeat," said Coach Lee Corso, who came to Indiana in 1973 after four years as coach at Louisville. "I was beat 69-19 (at Louisville) by Memphis State and I threw in the towel. Today I couldn't find a towel to throw in." "Football is a funny game," said Nebraska's Tom Osborne. "Indiana has been emotionally high in their first two games (losing to LSU and beating Washington). We just hit them right early in the game. On the other hand, we played as well as could be expected. "We told our players we laid an egg (20-3) against Alabama before national television, so this atoned for that a little bit. I really don't know yet how good we are." KANSAS STATE 34, AIR FORCE 21 : Quarterback Dan Mar.ucci threw two long second-quarter touchdown passes and ran for three second-half scores to help the Wildcats break an 11-game losing streak. It was the first head coaching victory in four tries by Jim Dickey and the first able to do so well," Schembechler said. "This was virtually the same team that almost beat us (Michigan won 21-9) here last year. But our preparation was hard. I'll make no bones about that." Huckleby apparently was the most prepared of all. He scored a pair of one-yard touchdowns and rushed 22 times for 84 yards. He has run for 2,115 yards in his Michigan career, leaving him 20 short of the fabled Tom Harmon, who stands sixth on the school's list of leading rushers. Quarterback Rick Leach, the Wolverines' Heisman Trophy candidate, only had to pass four times and completed two. He also chipped in with 73 yards on eight carries and scored on a 12-yard jaunt. "Their personnel is as strong as I have seen," admitted Duke Coach Mike McGee. "You never forget a humiliating experience. We've got to profit from our many mistakes." Michigan ran its record to 3-0. WISCONSIN 22, OREGON 19: Undefeated Wisconsin also posted its third victory, but the Badgers, under first-year Coach Dave McClain, had to stage a furious fourth-quarter rally to do so. Visiting Oregon took a 19-7 lead with 7:07 left in the game on a one-yard run by tailback Ed Radcliff before third-string quarterback Mike Kalasmiki ignited Wisconsin's comeback. Kalasmiki pulled the Badgers to within 19-14 with a 12-yard TD pass to Tim Stracka with 2:14 to go. Then reserve linebacker Mickey Casey recovered an onside kick for the Badgers, and Kalasmiki engineered the decisive drive. He passed Wisconsin to the Oregon 10-yard line and, after a crucial rough-ing-the-passer penalty kept the drive going, Kevin Cohee scored on a 5-yard run. A pass from Kalasmiki to David Charles gave the Badgers a two-point conversion and their three-point cushion. r vs. incaicaraa big eight time Kansas State has won at home since the opening game of the 1976 season. Manucci hit Charlie Green with a 56-yard touchdown pass and Eugene Good-low with a 63-yard scoring strike to give the Wildcats at 14-9 halftime lead. He added touchdown runs of 1 and 32 yards less than one minute apart midway through the third period. His third rushing touchdown came from a yard out. Manucci, who entered the game as the nation's fourth leading passer, finished with 10 completions in 12 tries for 221 yards. Manucci's effort marked the first time in Kansas State history any player had ever had a hand in five touchdowns during the course of a game. Air Force quarterback Dave Ziebert finished the game with 15 completions in 30 tries for 271 yards. IOWA STATE 35, DRAKE 7: Terry Rubley passed for three touchdowns and Dexter Green ran for more than 100 yards for the 15th time in his career to become Iowa State's all-time leading rusher in the 17th-ranked Cyclones' breeze at Ames, Iowa. Iowa State was considered the odds-on favorite over Drake, 2-3, which had considered giving up Division I football. But a Rubley to Green pass that covered eight yards late in the first quarter constituted the only scoring in the first half. Rubley in the third quarter riddled the Drake defense on touchdown passes to split end Ray Hardee and tight end Guy Preston, and Green ran two yards for a score. Fullback Jack Seabrooke ran two yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter as Iowa State, 4-0, got off to its best start in 40 years. Green finished with 102 yards to surpass Mike Strachan's school record. He now has 3,070 career yards. MIAMI, FLA. 38, KANSAS 6: Quarterback Ken McMillian and fullback Ottis Anderson each ran for two touchdowns and the Miami defense throttled the Jayhawks with five pass interceptions to lead the Hurricanes to the win at Lawrence, Kan. Anderson, the Hurricanes' career LANDING 20NEi Indiana's Dale Keneipp is on the receiving end, too, as he tackles Nebraska receiver Kenny Brown after a 36-yard reception in Saturday's game in Bloomington.

The senior fullback's first touchdown capped a 7-play, 21-yard drive that was set up by Jimmy Little's fumble on a punt return on the last play of the first quarter. Anderson's second touchdown came in the fourth quarter. McMillian scored on runs of 21 and 4 yards, both set up by interceptions. The sophomore quarterback's second touchdown followed defensive back John Swain's second interception of the day that gave the Hurricanes the ball on their own 28. McMillian scored on a 4-yard run to cap a 7-play drive. COLORADO 55, N'WESTERN 7: The unbeaten Buffaloes sputtered to a 14-7 halftime lead, but rolled up 41 points in the second half to rout its Big Ten Conference foe. Fullback James Mayberry and quarterback Bill Solomon led the way for the host Buffs. Mayberry gained 124 yards on 28 carries, becoming the sixth Colorado player to rush for more than 2,000 career yards, and scored four touchdowns. All of his TDs, on runs of 2,1,1 and 2 yards, came in the third quarter.; Solomon ran for 134 yards and passed for 90. He sprinted 38 yards for one touchdown and sneaked in for another from one yard out. NORTH TEXAS STATE 12, OKLAHOMA STATE 7: Tailback Bernard Jackson rushed for over 100 yards and scored a touchdown to lead North Texas State over winless Oklahoma State University at Irving, Tex. Jackson, the fourth best rusher in the county last week, failed to maintain his 160.5 game average against the Cowboys but carved out 124 yards on 30 carries. The Cowboys scored on their first possession of the penalty-riddled contest on an 8-yard run by senior quarterback Scott Burk, capping a 58-yard scoring drive on only three plays. NTSU came back with an 80-yard scoring drive. Jackson dived over from 1 yard out, but the kick attempt was blocked by Cowboy defensive tackle Jerry Winchester leaving the score 7-6. Less than five minutes later, quarterback Jordan Case threw a 9-yard slant pass to senior Charlie Murray for the final points of the game. S( GENERAL MOTOBS PfcgTS DIVISIOM n r im m a j r- r- - -
