fi Cbc Clar.on.Lc&gc, Jackson daily news V" SECTION E Sunday, Peremhfr 27, 1970 Orange Foes J rap to on set of 4 tires re Watchful 41go9)ffi CI A TT 7TT7 oil LSU, Nebraska Pulling For Bowl Underdogs MIAMI (AP) - Nebraska and Louisiana State will cheer for the underdogs in. New Year's daytime ; TV football dramas nd then hope to fight it out at rrtght in the Orange Bowl for the nation's No. 1 ranking. ; "No reason we shouldn't be ranked No. 1," said Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney of his 10-04 Jig Eight champions. ""Considering the mean sched ule we've played, I think we should be put with the best," said LSU's Charlie McClendon, whose Tigers won the Southeastern Conference with a 9-2 season. C IF? ? . Both sides have it figured this way: IF Stanford upsets No. 2 ranked Ohio State in the Rose Bowl and Notre Dame spills No. !- rated Texas in the Cotton Bowl, then the Nebraska-LSU winner might get consideration for the top spot. 41 At the end of the regular season, Nebraska was ranked third and LSU fifth and The Associated Press will conduct its final vote after the post-season events are completed. "Two tough running backs, Joe Orduna and Jeff Kinney, are the centerpieces of the Nebraska offense. The speedy 196-pound Orduna gained 834 yards as the Husker workhorse, averaging 4.5 a carry. Kinney gained 661 and matched the 4.5 clip. Jerry Tagge is a rangy 6-foot-2 .' junior quarterback from the football hotbed of Green Bay, Wis., who completed 104 of 165 tosses for 1,383 yards and 12 touchdowns. Tagge's favorite targets are back Johnny Rodges, 35 catches for w5 yards and seven scores, and an elusive Guy Ingles. The 5-foot-9, 158-pound Ingles had 34 receptions for 603 yards and eight TDs. 'LSU last a 20-18 shocker to Texas AIM in its season opener, but the Tigers dropped only a classic 3-0 struggle with Notre Dame In the final 10 efforts. The 61-17 plastering of Gator Bowl bound Mississippi in the season finale helped boost LSU to No. 5. LSU has a superior bowl past to the Cornhuskers. The Tigers have an 8-6-1 post-season history while Neoraska has dropped five of eight. Tommy Casanova is the most explosive LSU man as a daring punt returner who brought back six kicks for a fat 34-yard aver age. "This might be one of our best-remembered teams at LSU," said McClendon, "partly because we beat Ole Miss 61-17 and mostly because we led the nation by allowing only 52.2 yards rushing a game." Joining Casanova in the potent LSU defense are brilliant 219-pound linebacker Mike An derson, wno McClendon said "has to rank with the best any where. Offensively, the Tigers split tneir quarterbaeking chores between senior Buddy Lee and sophomore Bert Jones. Lee con nected on 73 of 138 attempts for 1,162 yards and six touchdowns and Jones hit 52 of 100 for 864 and five scores. TOP RECEIVER Lanky 6-foot-3 Andy Hamilton is LSU's banner receiver with 39 catches and a healthy 22 - yard average. The junior from Rus-ton, La., scored eight touchdowns. Ken Kavanaugh Jr. caught 25 for 318 yards and Gerald Keigley grabbed 16 for 277. On the ground, stocky 5-foot-11-Art Cantrelle was a giant for ne Bengals. The junior from Larose, La., gained 892 yards and averaged 3.6, carrying the ball almost as much as the other 13 ball carriers combined at LSU. Kick off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., EST, on NBC-TV, but that might be delayed if the Rose Bowl also on NBCruns long. A sellout crowd of about 80,000 is assured. VOLS, FALCONS Sugar Opponents Will Work Hard NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Both fourth-ranked Tennessee and eighth -ranked Air Force planned heavy practice sessions early this week In preparation for their New Year Day's date in the Sugar Bowl. ' "We came to New Orleans to win the game though we are aso hoping to have a good time." said Tennessee Coach Bill Battle. "But winning is our No. 1 priority." ? Both teams arrived Saturday, scheduled hard work early in the week with time allotted later for fun and sightseeing The Falcons, 9-2 for the season, boast a high-powered offensive averaging 424 yards and 32 points a game. But the Air Force defense has been questionable. Tennessee, meanwhile, was frore balanced in posting a 10-1 record. The Vols had the best record in the conference although they didn't win the championship. Air Force Coach Ben Martin said his Falcons practiced in earnest four days last week after having final examination the previous week and working out individually primarily "to maintain our level of condition." - The Falcons took off two days for ! Christmas. "The break shouldn't hurt us," said Martin. "We should have stayed in good shape. We can work out the Christmas dinners in New Orleans." Air Force and Tennessee have never played each other and Air Force has never been in the Sugar Bowl. The last Vol visit here was in 1957 when Baylor defeated them 13-7. It is only the third bowl game for Air Force. The Falcons tied Texas Christian in the 1959 Cotton Bowl, then lost to North Carolina in the 1964 Gator Bowl. Tennessee is 7-10 in bowl competition. The Vols have been bowling three straight years and have lost all three. The potent Falcon attack begins with the passing of quarterback Bob Parker and the receiving of Ernie Jennings and the running of Brian Bream. Each is the best in Air Force history at his specialty. Bream scored 120 points and Jennings 114, making them the most prolific one-two punch in college football. Parker completed 18 passes a game and finished fourth in total offense In the nation with an average output of 253 yards. Bream was fifth In the nation rushing and Jennings was fifth in receiving. But the Falcon defense stum bled near the end, yielding 46 and 49 points to Oregon and Col feats. Tennessee is led by offensive guard Chip Kell. linebacker Jackie Walker, fullback Curt Watson, quarterback Bobby Scott and defensive backs Bob by Maiors and Tim Priest mO 3.0 (2) Oa074C WE CURRENTLY HAVE AVAILABLE IN LIMITED AMOUNTS THE FOLLOWING!
