Michigan State's Chris Caudell and Bell both missed field goals of 49 yards in the second period before Bell started the Tech comeback with his 40-yarder in the final period. Tim Moore gave Michigan State the ball at the Georgia Tech 48 with an interception to set up the first Spartan touchdown. Yarema hit Ingram with a 37-yard pass to the 11. Three plays later, Ingram, completely uncovered on the left sideline, took a 6-yard toss in the end zone. State's Greg Montgomery punted out of bounds at the Georgia Tech 2 midway of the third period. Tech failed to get a first down, and a punt gave State the ball at the Tech 38. White picked up 11 and Yarema and Ingram then teamed for their second touchdown. Tech moved 57 yards from its 20 to set up Bell's field goal. On State's next possession, Tech's Riccardo Ingram knocked the ball loose from White and Pat Swilling recovered for Tech at the Spartan 42, and Tech began its winning drive. The Jackets got a big break when State was called for roughing Rampley, wiping out an interception by Anthony Bell and giving Tech a first down at the 30. Nate Kellsey, Jerry Mays and King moved the ball to the five and King ran it in. Sammy Lilly halted State's last chance with an interception with 54 seconds left. State's Ingram had three catches for 70 yards and was voted the most valuable player, although the ballots were collected before Tech pulled out the game.

Singletary named top defender CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bears middle linebacker Mike Singletary, who led his team in tackles the past three years with his lightning speed and hitting prowess, was named the NFL's defensive player of the year Tuesday by the Associated Press. Singletary, whose abilities are considered the key to the Bears' overpowering defense, topped defensive end Howie Long of the Los Angeles Raiders and linebacker Andre Tippett of the New England Patriots in voting by three writers or broadcasters representing each of the NFL's 28 franchises. The 6-foot, 228 pounder from Singletary Baylor gave his fellow players partial credit for his success. "I'm blessed to be in the right place at the right time," Singletary said."Any time I receive any honors at all I look at my defensive linemen and even the defensive backs I work with. I'm grateful we work together as well as we do." Bears coach Mike Ditka, himself the winner of the coach of the year award after guiding Chicago to a 15-1 record this season, said, "They couldn't pick a better one." Singletary, the Bears' defensive captain, "is a great example of what a football player should be," Ditka said. "He works harder than anyone we have on the team. Singletary was selected by the Bears in the second round of the 1981 draft, lasting that long because he was thought to be too short for an NFL linebacker. He has compensated for that with speed that allows him to cover from sideline-to-sideline in the Bears' "46" defense, which often leaves him alone in the middle of the field. Singletary also makes up for his height with his hitting ability and rarely misses a man once he has him in his sights. "I think it's a reflection on our defensive coordinator, Buddy Ryan," Singletary said. "Everything we do as a defense reflects Buddy Ryan. He gets the game plan together. It's not designed for one particular individual to do it all." Singletary, who has played middle linebacker since high school, credited high school Coach Oliver Brown at Houston Worthing with teaching him, "it's not always how big or how fast, it's the desire you have to be the best." At Baylor, linbacker coach Corky Nelson showed me "what playing line is all about, being smart, tough and aggressive." Ditka said Singletary "is a joy to be around. He enjoys it and he works at it and it rubs off on the young people when he watches extra films and shows leadership in other areas." UTEP cracks Top 20 rankings EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Texas-El Paso, which had a glorious weekend beating Georgetown, Ohio State and Alabama, caught a berth in The Associated Press Top Twenty for the first time this year. The Miners, 11-1, edged Ohio State, 58-57, Sunday and Alabama, 74-62, Monday in their own Sun Bowl tour- AP poll in Scoreboard nament after dealing Georgetown its first defeat of the year in a 14-point victory Friday. The defeat dropped Georgetown six spots in the poll to llth. Texas-El Paso, which attracted national attention with the win over the Hoyas, moved into the select group at No. 19. UTEP coach Don Raskins believes it was about time. "I think it's good for our team," Raskins said. "We're going into (Western Athletic) conference play and some people don't think we're the best team in our league." Alabama forward Buck Johnson, who was named to the Sun Bowl All- Tournament team, agreed with Haskins. "They play real high and together," Johnson said of the Miners. North Carolina received 46 of the 63 first-place votes in the nationwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters to remain atop the AP poll for the sixth straight week.

Duke, 11-0, received the other four first-place votes and 1,134 points, while Syracuse had 1,055 points. Kansas, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Louisiana State, Memphis State and St. John's each improved one spot from last week's to round out the latest Top Ten.

DePaul, 5-3, dropped out of the Top Twenty after losing to Purdue and Navy before edging Texas by one point. Bears find bad weather in Georgia SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) — The Chicago Bears went south to escape the bad weather but ended up practicing Tuesday in driving rain with temperatures in the 30s. Conditions actually may have been more conducive to football in Chicago, where temperatures were in the high 20s but with no rain or snow to hamper throwing and running. "It's great to be practicing here in Antarctica, I mean Atlanta," joked Chicago Coach Mike Ditka, his cheeks red from the cold. "We brought our own weather down here. Wejustlovedit." The Bears, whose 15-1 record is the best in this season's National Football League, play the New York Giants in a playoff game Sunday in Chicago. "It won't be much colder in Chicago Sunday than it was today," he said. Actually, Ditka said the Bears had a good practice, working longer than they expected. They also spent more time working on running instead of passing, he said. "We haven't been on grass in a long time, and the guys really enjoyed it," he said of the Atlanta Falcons' practice field. The only casualty was reserve receiver Brad Anderson, who injured his thumb, Ditka said. The thumb was to be X-rayed Tuesday night, Ditka said, making Anderson's status unknown. Reserve running back Calvin Thomas also aggravated a knee problem but isn't expected to be sidelined, Ditka said. Temperatures were expected to climb into the 50s Wednesday, with sunny skies, said the National Weather Service. Asked what he planned to do New Year's Eve, Ditka replied "stay off (Highway) 294," referring to the Chicago-area road where he was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in October. "If I can work on my gin game, that's what I'll do," he said. Green Bay loses two coaches GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Herb Paterra and Ken Riley, coaches under whom the Green Bay Packers' defense improved from 28th to 12th in the National Football League in two years, are leaving for other coaching jobs. The Packers announced Tuesday that Paterra, who had been coaching the Green Bay linebackers, was leaving to become defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills. And Florida A&M University disclosed later in the day that Riley, who has been coaching the Green Bay secondary, is the new head coach at the school. The moves came two days after it was disclosed that Bob Schnelker had been fired as the Packers' offensive coordinator.
