Lafe fe6 oosfs WM ey Oyer By JERRY McDAMEL Tlie Valley Vikings, trailing almost all the way, hit West Mesa with a fourth quarter blitz to down the Mustangs 59-53 Wednesday night at the West Mesa gym. The win, Valley's se enth of the season against a single loss, strengthened its hold on first place in the Dist. 2AAAA stand Cactus Bowl Fine. But WAC Champ Needs an Option i i One of the biggest mistakes the Western Athletic Conference could make would be to promise to send its champion to the Cactus Bowl Phoenix hopes to get approval to sponsor starting next year. 6 For the WAC to say it would send a host team would be fine But to commit its champion would be foolish.

If the Cactus Bowl receives approval-and it should this time around it will probably start off on better footing than El Paso Sun Bowl, which is the third oldest in the nation This because the Arizona State stadium can seat more than 50,000 -hile the Sun Bowl can hold but 30,000. The Sun Bowls guarantee is currently $85,000 for each participant and it hopes to up this to $100,000. ARIZONA STATE'S TAKE from the Peach Bowl in Atlanta on the other hand, is expected to be near $200,000, similar to the figure Wyoming took home from the Sugar Bowl three seasons ago. But ASU will have to share some of its money with the league office, something Wyoming didn't have to burden itself with. But the publicity Wyoming and Arizona State reaped for this region by going to another to play is worth unaccountable value.

And this is what must not be sacrificed by committing the league champion to any bowl in this region. If the Cactus Bowl wants a WAC team, it would not be hurt by taking the league runnerup in years the champion has the Thursday, January 14, 1971 D-I -4 i -i i i '4 ifc i Z. t- tafc ings with a 3-0 record.

But the Monarchs ran in seven straight points before Rio could score again, and wi-dened their lead to 27-21 at intermission.

The victory evens the Monarchs record at 3-3 in district play and bumps them to 5-4 on the season. Rio Grande falls to 0-4 in the league and 1-6 for the season.

High Inside With Journal Sports Editor LeROY BEARMAN That would have been New Mexico this past season and such a worthy opponent as Arkansas might have been the op- ponent as the Razorbacks were uninvited this year.

The year before Arizona State and Utah both had 8-2 records when ASU shaded the Utes for the league title, but both were uninvited. Georgia with a 5-4-1 record got to play Nebraska in the Sun Bowl. And Georgia playing a bowl that year was as ridiculous as 6-5 Alabama playing in one this season. WAC teams being uninvited in recent years plus Arizona State's almost being snubbed this year are major factors in favor of the Cactus Bowl being approved by the NCAA's extra events committee. BUT THE BOWL itself would be better off without a tieup.

There will be years when it might prefer a major area inde-j pendent such as Utah State or Air Force or the Missouri Valley's newest entry New Mexico State as a host team. Or there might be a year when it doesn't want a host team at all it might have a chance to bring in a pair of big names from other areas. From this vantage point Arizona State and New Mexico ap-; pear to be prime bowl timber for next season. Another WAC team or two could develop into that caliber also. So if it's a WAC team the Cactus Bowl wants, there will, no doubt, be a worthy one around.

But don't tie up the champion in case another more prestigious opportunity knocks. After all, the kids who will be seniors on New Mexico's club next fall made a vow when they were sophomores. It was Sugar Bow I or burst. A tie up with the Cactus Bowl would provide the needles to make that dream bubble burst.
