The Aggies took over on their own 47 and drove 53 yards you'll see anywhere." Hargett's performance overshadowed an outstanding effort by Arkansas quarterback Ronny South who connected on 18 of 22 tosses for more than 200 yards and two touchdowns. It was the most completions by an Arkansas quarterback during Broyles' 10 years. "Ronny did a great job of picking out his receivers," Broyles said. "He did enough offensively for us to win." The Razorbacks marched down the field with the opening kickoff but were stopped at the Aggies' 11. They took it back all the way for the touchdown.

"They were able to'take' advantage of the opportunities in • more lightning-like iaslrion than any team I can remember." It was A&M quarterback Hargett who consistently made the big plays. He faced-15 critical third or fourth downs and Bine times he passed for the necessary yardage. Hargett, who is the leading passer in the Southwest Conference, has such a quick delivery that, given enough time, he will find a receiver open. "He would hit, not the first or second receiver, but the third or fourth," lamented Broyles. "You can't fault our defense, iSiey played where we put them. "We became a little bit rat- on fourth and three at the 15. A&M ran three plays, punted and Arkansas moved 38 yards for another touchdown. The big play was a 21-yard pass to tailback Mike Hendren in another fourth down situation. Arkansas led 14-7 at the half when South passed six yards to Peacock and Bob White converted. Hargett came' firing back in the final half. He .threw to Barney Harris wide'operi in the end zone on fourth and three from the three after Steve O'Neal had kicked dead on the one and Bob Long had returned the Razorbacks' ensuing punt 22 yards. It took the Aggies the full eight plays to score from the 19. Tiie Razorbacks moved back down field two possessions later and South passed 19 yards to Peacock for the touchdown with less than two minutes left. A&M scored its third touchdown of the day but when Higgs missed the extra point it looked as if Arkansas might have the advantage. If the Razorbacks did have the advantage, the fumble recovery turned it back to A&M for the final time. FAYETTEVILLS, Ark.

Fumbles lost 0 1 Yards penalized 50 0 Kyle Rote Sr. is Southern Methodist a former All-American halfback and star receiver for the New York Giants. Young Rote, at 5-11 and 160, is starting quarterback at Highland Park High in Dallas, the same school that produced Bob- Kyle Kote Sr. by Lane and Doak Walker. His father, who retired as an active player following the 1961 season, is now a sports announcer for the National Broadcasting Company. In a few days, he will see his son play for the first time. "We know Kyle, Jr. feels the pressure," says Herman Bailey, Rote's coach. "He realizes what an outstanding athlete his father was. Sometimes we think he tries too hard. He's always wanting to know what he can | do to improve. . , "It's not because he feels "obligated to follow in his father's footsteps." In one recent game, Rote returned a kickoff 75 yards and on three successive plays gave the ball to the other backs, one of which finally got the touchdown. Kyle Rote Sr. is naturally pleased with his boy's accomplishments. "I talk to him every Week," says Rote, "and he's always discussing different plays with me. I've never discouraged him from playing but never made him feel obligated, .either. It will be his decision whether his college plans include sports or not." Rote could probably find a place in the college ranks as a receiver or defensive back, if not at quarterback. Still, he has held up remarkably well considering the beatings he has taken from opposing linemen. His offensive line is the smallest in the district. "Experience Is probably the only thing holding him back as a quarterback," says his high school coach. "He's not a brute- force runner but has fine reflexes and cul well. Potentially, he's a good passer. He just needs to throw more. Actually, if we were primarily a passing team, Kyle would be used as a receiver because that's what he does best. "But we need him at quarter- .back. He's very smart and a j tremendous leader. The kids respect him and I have detected no jealousy among the squad. He's as well-liked as anybody III may someday face the same problem. DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - (NBA) — The American Road Race of.Champions, known as the World Series of racing, caps a long Thanksgiving weekend in the Daytona sun for enthusiasts of auto racing, golf, fashion and antique automobiles.

Kyle Rote Jr. Young Rote says he hasn't had any college offers yet, adding that it would be an honor for a 160-pounder to receive any kind of scholarship from any school. "The father-son complex has been somewhat of a problem but he's adjusted very well," says Kyle Rote Sr. it's a good thing.
