Blue - Gray at Montgomery, Ala.: Dan Folciberg and Chuck Shira, members of the unbeaten team that represented that grand Low Score Seen in Cotton Bowl Clash DALLAS IJ) — Cotton Bowl fans ( who have been spoiled by scoring thrills through the years may have lo substitute fundamental football) on their New Year's Day diet here Monday. There is a growing suspicion that the UnivcrsiLy of Texas and the University o£ Tennessee will engage in the lowest scoring game the Cotton Bowl has produced since that scoreless deadlock between representatives of (he same conference—Arkansas and LS — in the 1947 game. A defensive struggle will be nothing new to Gen. Bob Neyland's Tennessee Volunteers, who have not scored in their last two postseason tests, but it would be a drastic departure from the Longhorns' post - season pattern. The last time Texas played in this Dallas classic it was a party to bowl scoring records with its 40-27 conquest of Missouri on Jan. 1, 1946. SWAMPED ALABAMA Two years later, after their first season under Blair Olierry. the Longhorns led over Alabama, 27-7, in the Sugar Bowl, then the very next year they rewrote their previous post - season scoring records by upsetting Georgia, 41-28, in the Orange Bowl. The Longhorns' most impotent offensive showing in bowl play was here in the Cotton Bowl in 1944, when Dana Bible's team was tied, 7-7, by Randolph Field. That is the only blot on the Longhorns' postseason record, which got its start a year earlier with a 14-7 victory ovcr Georgia Tech in the Cotton ! legc over Bowl. ' College. eleven.

Sugar Bowl at New Orleans: Oklahoma over Kentucky: live Oklahomans are supposedly on the hospital list. They will get well, miraculously, by the time of kickoff and football's longest modern winning streak will move to 32 games. Cotton Bowl at Dallas: Texas over Tennessee. With Townsend in the backfield and McFadin on the line the Texas team is at least the equal of any team in the country. In addition, Die Longhorns will be playing before the home- folks.

UCAA Officials May Suspend 'Sanity Code Sinners at January Conference LOS ANGELES Wl — Possible suspension of six alleged sanity code sinners, a fight over the code itself and action relating to television, all figure to keep things stewing when the National Collegiate Athletic Association holds its annual meeting In Dallas Jan. 8-11.

Willett, University of Southern California professor and faculty adviser, as well as former president of the Pacific Coast Conference, would not divulge the names of the institutions in question, nor the five others which apparently have mended their ways since they were cited for alleged violations earlier this year. Nor would Willett give any inkling ot the nature of the purported abuses. But the sanity code deals with subsidization of athletes and presumably this Issue Is paramount in the caises Involved. Whether-the group Includes any of the "seven sinners" named at the »tormy NCAA ccjaventlon In New York last year was also left unanswered. The six have been cited, however and iheir names will come up in fluor discussions over possible punishment at the corning Dallas session. There may be strong agilaliou for revision of the code, however, and if some of the proposals were adopted, ihe suspensions would bt automatically ended before they went in-to effect.
