n Irish. Sucks Squeak; Longhorns St ampe From Fost-Dispatrh Wire Services NEW YORK, Nov. 14 Clinging to the top of the poll was scary for the Irish and the Buckeyes today, but no trick at all for the Longhorns. The three football teams locked in a battle for the No. 1 spot in the college ratings Notre Dame, Texas and Ohio State all scored victories. The difference in the way they managed it might cause some shuffling of their rankings this week, however. ;; Ohio State pulled out a 10-7 triumph over gutty Purdue and Notre Dame came from behind to beat Georgia Tech by the same score. Texas rumbled past Texas Christian, 58-0. In last week's polls, Notre Dame and Texas were tied for first in one and the Irish ranked just ahead of Texas in the other. Ohio State was a strong third in both ratings. All three teams have 8-0 records. At Lafayette, Ind., Fred Schram's game-winning field goal was hardly over the crossbar and the victorious but badly scared Ohio State Buckeyes hardly back in their dressing room when the telephone rang. Calling was a sports fan named Richard M. Nixon, who had been watching the Ohio State cliffhanger in his home at Washington, D.C. Not every fan can pick up the telephone and call Woody Hayes when OSU wins a big one, but for the President of the United States it is different. The Ohio State coach thanked the President warmly and ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH ports BOB BROEG. Editor SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1970 PAGES 11 OF asked if he would be at Columbus, 0., next Saturday When the Buckeyes take on Michigan in a Big Ten conference showdown of unbeaten titans. The President said he didn't think he could make it Then he asked to talk to Schram, whose 30-yard field goal through the murk of Ross-Ade Stadium with just two minutes four seconds remaining to play saved the day for Ohio State. Nixon also rang up Purdue Coach Bob DeMoss. "I know how it feels to be second best," the President was quoted as saying. 7 THEISMANN IN TROUBLE.

Wisconsin's Late Rally eats Illinois, 29-17 By Ed Willcs Of the Post-Dispatch Staff CHAMPAIGN, 111., Nov.. 14 -Two quick jolts of lightning got the University of Illinois off to a 14-point lead this gray day at Memorial Stadium, but the thunder was ail Wisconsin's as the Badgers swept the crippled Illini aside with a spring-away rushing game for a 29-17 victory that doomed Illinois to its fifth straight losing football season. .This was the final home ap-. pearance for eight Illinois sen- p iors and, very likely, it also" was a frustrating farewell for Jim Valek as head coach at 1111-noisT Valek, fired and then retained as a lame-duck coach at mid-season, made a 90-minute ap- Late Bombing Wisconsin O 14 0 IS 29 Illinois 14 3 0 O 17 1 Navarro 12 run (Wells kick) I Dirken 9 pass from Wells (Wells kirk) W Thompson 1 run (Yaeer kick) W Miallk 64 pass from Graff ( larger kick) I FG Wells 25 W Hannah 5 pass from Graff (YHPger kick) W Thompson 36 run (Thompson pass from Graff) Attendance 36,569 STATISTICS Wisconsin Illinois First downs 19 19 Rushing yardage 267 192 Passing yardage 144 119 Return yardage 41 18 Passes 6-13-0 9-25-3 Punts 6-36 5-38 Fumbles lost 2 O Yards penalized 26 22 pearance before the athletic board yesterday afternoon in an effort to stick around for a fifth season at his Alma Mater.

Michigan's victory, coupled with Ohio State's 10-7 squeaker over Purdue, set up a conference title showdown between the two next week in Columbus, 0. The game will mark the first time in the 75-year history of the Big Ten that two unbeaten teams have met on the last garni: of the schedule. Michigan is 9-0 and Ohio State 8-0. Moorhead rushed for 65 yards in eight attempts and completed six Of 10 passes for 88 yards. This ran his career total offense to 3528 yards, surpassing the 3487 yards achieved by Bob Chappuis in 1942-48-47.

With t o d a y 's defeat, Valek has an 8-31 record with the Illini, who now have a 3-6 showing this season, with a windup game slated at Iowa next Saturday. Illinois, without a healthy regular at defensive tackle, kept Wisconsin's rushing game under control for three quarters, even turning back the Badgers at the one-yard line in a spirited last-shot by the defense. But the Illini finally were, overrun for two fourth - period touchdowns as darkness fell. The Badgers in the fourth quarter collected 95 yards of their 267-yard total rushing net for the afternoon with Alan (A Train) Thompson running 36 yards for the lockup touchdown midway in the period. Wisconsin's yardage was the most the illini have permitted any opponent this season except Ohio State, which ran for 347 in a 48-29 victory here. And the Badgers got their total the hard way, running out of a hole after Illinois had left them with a minus eight yards on their first three possessions. Illinois at that stage was a spirited bunch of cripples. On the first play and it's Valek's offense that has been criticized as unimaginative Bob Burns hustled off for a 31-yard gain to the Wisconsin 21 on a flanker-around reverse. Willie Osley, starting in place of injuryhob-bled Darrell Robinson at tailback, then sprinted to the 12. On their third offensive play, the Illini completed 2-yard rumble, with fullback Mike Navarro strolling to daylight through a wide opening on the right side of the line. Throttled by the Badgers on their next possession, the Illini had to wait for a punt exchange to again set up shop at their 48. That seemed to be their dis-t a n c e today, for they again rolled 52 yards for a touchdown TURN TO PAGE 6, COL. 1 I 23 ' GecHia Tech -Notlf Dame 0 O 7 07 O 0 3 710 1 FG Smith 34 Tech Purdue's touchdown came on a 96-yard kickoff return by halfback Stan Brown late in the first quarter, only 12 seconds after the Buckeyes scored their TD on a 26-yard run by fullback John Brocidngton. Purdue took over the ball deep in Ohio State territory four times during the game twice on blocked punts, once on a fumble by quarterback Rex Kern but each time the Buckeye defense rose to the occasion. Purdue kicker Jeff Jones missed his only field-goal attempt, from 54 yards, on the final play of the first half. Schram was wide on his first two attempts, both in the third quarter. The Boilermakers remained in the Big Ten cellar with a 1-5 mark. They are 3-6 overall. , Notre Dame refused to push the panic button against an anjjused Georgia Tech team and preserved its perfect record with a chilling fourth-quarter comeback in South Bend, Ind. . :;.A 66-yard touchdown pass from Eddie McAshan, Tech's sophomore quarterback, to Larry Studdard late in the third quarter had given the twice-beaten Yellowjackets a 7-3 lead. With its No. 1 ranking in jeopardy, Notre Dame traveled 80 yards in seven plays midway through the final quarter for the decisive touchdown. The play that started the series was a 46-yard pass from Joe Theismann to Ed Gulyas, who made a sensational catch sitting on the ground at the Tech 34. A two-yard run by Dennis Allan brought the Irish the score with 6:28 remaining. , - In uskeir The sellout crowd of 59,075 had to survive a final scare, however. A 10-yard Notre Dame punt into the swirling wind gave Tech possession at the Irish 43 with 2:48 to go. But on first down, the Jackets tried a trick play a handoff and pitchback to McAshan for a long pass that resulted in no pass and a . 13-yard loss. . Two plays later, Clarence Ellis, the Notre Dame corner-" back who had been beaten earlier on Studdard's touchdown, leaped high and intercepted a McAshan pass at the Irish 27. The Irish then ran out the clock. Tech held the Irish, who had averaged 41 points a game, " to their lowest score in 36 games, although Theismann amassed " 239 yards total offense. The game was scoreless for a half. Finally, with 3:20 left in the third quarter, Scott Smith, a sophomore soccer-style placekicker, booted a 34-yard field goal for Notre Dame. The margin looked safe until McAshan dropped back and"' fired long to Studdard, who caught the ball at the Irish 28 and. outran Mike Crotty for the score. There was no excitement in Fort Worth, Tex., where Texas;, poured it on Southwest Conference foe Texas Christian, 58-0.,.
