PAGE TEK Monday. November 13, 19ST For otent azorbacks By HARRY KING Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles admitted Sunday he was leery of how the Razorbacks' defense would do against Rice Saturday. "We didnl know what to expect," Broyles said on his television show. "After what happened to them in the Texas A&M game in the fourth quarter... we just didn't know how they would react." A&M scored 10 points in the fourth period to beat Arkansas 33-21. The Arkansas defense gave the offense time to get unpacked by stopping the Owls at the Arkansas 21, 33 and 8 In the first period. '<They had their backs to the wail two or three times," said Styles. "The big plays were Tommy Trantham "The punt return is one of the most beautiful plays in football," said Broyles. "But it's to get the timing put the Razorbacks in business at the Rice 45 and South got the touchdown in two plays. He passed to Dickey for ten yards and then hooked up with Peacock for the touchdown. Trantham's long interception return gave Arkansas the ball at the Rice 11 in the final minutes of the half. South hit Dickey for eight yards and then Dickey scored from just outside the one on fourth down. White's extra point gave Arkansas a 170 lead with less than a minute to go in the half. Trantham, Adams and safety Terry Stewart are sure to see plenty of passes Saturday when the Razorbacks play SMU at Dallas. Arkansas is now 2-2-1 in the conference and could finish as high as third with victories over the Mustangs and Texas Tech. By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer The Oakland Raiders have found out that idleness won't win them any American Football League titles, not with the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs hard at work. Playing the role of the idle rich Sunday only made the Raiders poorer as the Chargers and Chiefs each rolled to victory and narrowed the gap that separates them from leading Oakland in the Western Division. The Chargers, 6-1-1, stumped Miami 24-0 and the Chiefs, 6-3, hammered Boston 33-10 while the Raiders relaxed with an open date and a 7-1 mark. The New York Jets had to work hand to retain their one- game lead over Houston in the Eastern Division with a 20-10 ' victory over Buffalo while the Oilers struggled by lowly Denver 20-18 in the other AFL James. San Diego, off last week, also suffered the effects of idleness against the Dolphins .as the high-powered Chargers managed only a 7-0 lead into the fourth quarter before blowing)land Coach Blanton Collier open the game. : 'Two weeks layoff was too much," said Charger Coach Sid Gillman. "I think we will be a letter football team from here on out." Houston, noted for its defense, won its fifth game with an unusual 20 point outburst in the first three periods on a scoring pass by Pete Beathard and the running of Hoyle Granger and Woodie Campbell. But the Broncos, able to cross midfield only twice and trailing 20-0, gave the Oilers a scare as Steve Tensi tossed two TD passes and Bob Humphreys kicked a 43-yard field goal in less than six minutes during the final quarter before the Houston defense regrouped. By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Green Bay rookie Travis Williams couldn't believe it. Cleve- didn't want to. And, as usual, Packer Coach Vince Lombard! had the last word.

'We might have been looking ahead to Kansas City. I'm just glad we didn't play the Chiefs today." The Chargers and Chiefs collide Sunday while Oakland, if it can avoid rustiness, hosts weak Miami and can pick up ground on at least one challenger with a victory. The Chiefs readied themselves for the San Dingo clash after spotting Boston a 10-7 lead and then crushing the Patriots for their third straight romp in a final drive to rain the AFL title they won last year. The Chiefs' Len Dawson pitched for two touchdowns and (defensive back Erm'tt Thomas difficult down.

He hit 9 of 13 for 141 yards against Rice and has connected on 42 of his last 57. "Ronny has a great knack of anticipating who is going to be open," said Broyles.

"When we've had an injury," Lombard) added, "we always play a little better." Tiie Packers had the injuries —starting running backs Jim Grabowski and Elijah Pitts are out—and they certainly played well, running up a 35-7 first-period margin and romping in 'rom there. The victory, spiced by Wil- .iams' record-matching two Sickoff returns for touchdowns, kept the defending champion Packers atop the National Football League's Central Division. Baltimore remained unbeaten and on top of the Coastal Division with a 49-7 romp over Atlanta, witSi Johnny Unitas providing a spectacular passing game and the Colts showing no letdown after the previous week's important victory over Green Bay.

"I couldn't believe it was happening," Williams said after returning kickoffs for touchdowns on runs of 87 and 35 yards for the Packers. His feat matched the league record of two kickoff returns for touchdowns set last year by Philadelphia's Timmy Brown. And the 35 points run up by the Packers in the first period set a league record. Donny Anderson and Ben Wilson filled in admirably for the ailing Pitts and Grabowski, Anderson, scoring four touchdowns and Wilson rushing for 100 yards. "'The story of the game," Lombardi insisted, however, "was Bart Starr." Starr completed 14. of 21 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns. 'I still don't know what happened," said the dazed Collier. I think we wanted to win so badly we were too tight and couldn't play our game." Colt quarterback . Unitas played his game—perhaps even a little above his usual outstanding performance. He completed 17 ot 20 throws for 370 yards and four touchdowns, the scores coming on plays covering 25, 11, 64 and 5 yards, in the rout of Atlanta. End Frank Clarke, who lined up in the backfield on a light-I formation, broke op» the game for Dallas, racing 56 yards for a touchdown that put the Cowboys in front of New Orleans 17-0. They coasted in from there. Pittsburgh, with quarterback Bill Nelsen calling the shots, j moved 90 yards in nine plays in the last minute of play to gain the tie with St. Louis. Nelson capped it with a six-yard toss to Roy Jefferson. St. Louis, however, remained one-half game in front of Cleveland. Detroit established a negative record, fumbling 11 times, in tiie tie with Minnesota, an offensive nightmare for both teams. Mel Farr carried 24 times for 197 yards for the Lions, who tied it on Wayne Walker's 12-yard field goal in the third period.
