May Pass Notre Dame In Voting Huskers Impressive By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nebraska and OMo State, which have long had the winning habit under veteran Coaches Bob Devaney and Woody Hayes, posted impressive victories Saturday as the 1971 college football season got under way. Five other members of The Associated Press' Top Twenty however must be wishing they hadn't scheduled an early opener. Devaney called Nebraska's 34-7 rout of Oregon "a great opening win against a good Oregon team" while Hayes' Buckeyes churned out 402 yards on the ground and crushed Iowa 52-21 in what the gruff old coach called "a new style of football we started this year." That's a joke, son. 2nd and ltttr The Cornhuskers, defending national champions, were ranked second and Ohio State 11 th in The AP's pre-season poll. Elsewhere, fourth-rated Michigan wore down No. 20 Northwestern 21-6 in a key Big Ten opener but ninth-ranked Louisiana State fell to Colorado 3121, Pitt upset No. 15 UCLA 2925 and 17th-rated Georgia Tech bowed to .South Carolina 24-7. Meanwhile, eighth-ranked Arkansas stormed past California 50-21, No. 18 Georgia buried Oregon State 56-25 and No. 19 Stanford eased past Missouri 19-0. Friday night, 16th rated Alabama turned back No. 5 Southern California 17-10, making Bear Bryant only the sixth coach ever to achieve the magic number of 200 victories. The other eight teams in the Top Twenty didn't open this weekend. Nebraska's junior college import Gary Dixon scored three touchdowns, Jeff Kinney rolled up 124 yards and quarterback Jerry Tagge completed eight of 10 passes for 98 yards and set a school career passing record of 2,989 yards. Don Lamka, switched from defensive back to quarterback to replace Rex Kern, piled up 100 yards on the ground and 60 more through the air and scored four times to lead Ohio Stale over Iowa. Felt Like Custer Fullback John Bledsoe tacked on 151 yards, leading Iowa's Frank Lauterbur to moan, "With all their running backs I felt like Custer against all those Indians." Michigan's Dave Rather scored once on an 18-yard end around and again on a freak fumble recoveiy in the end zone.

Snapshooting Joe Ferguson completed Hi of 27 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns and scored twice himself to lead Arkansas over California. Hot-shot sophomore Charlie Davis debuted with 175 yards and two touchdowns in Colorado's triumph over Louisiana State. The favored Tigers, famed for their rushing defense in recent seasons, were chewed up for 296 yards by the Buffaloes. Come From Behind Dave Havern's 10-yard pass to Leslie Block in the final period enabled Pitt to come from behind and topple UCLA in a wild affair. The Panthers' starting quarterback, John llo- gan, scored one TD and passed 21 yards for another. South Carolina, coming off a disappinting season and starting its first year as an independent after withdrawing from the Atlantic Coast Conference, used safeties, a blocked punt, a punt return and a sustained drive to smother Georgia Tech. Star defensive back Dickie Harris blocked the punt, which Jimmy Nash carried 35 yards for a touchdown, and returned another punt 77 yards to score himself. Another defender, Georgia's Buzy Rosenberg, scored on punt returns of 66 and 79 yards and sophomore quarterback Andy Johnson also tallied twice in Georgia's romp over Oregon State. Hillary Shockley's 52-yard gallop started Stanford past Missouri and Don Bunco, successor lo Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jim Plunkett, passed 26 yards to sophomore John Winesberry for another TD.

Bradshaw hit Fuqua with a three-yard pass in the right flat and the former Morgan State College star scampered the remaining 52 yards. In tire second period Bradshaw directed a 10-play, 57' yard drive for the first Steeler score with running back Pre-i ston Pearson diving over from the one for the touchdown.

Scratch The Pac-8 Most people in this section of the country feel the Big Eight Conference, top to bottom, is the toughest grid conference in the country. But there are those who claim the Pacific Eight or the Southeast Conference is No. 1. Saturday, six Big Eight teams saw action, three against Pac-8 foes, and two against SEC opponents. The outcome of these games shows the Big Eight with a 2-1 mark against the Pac-8 as Nebraska walloped an Oregon team considered by many a threat to unseat defending conference champion Stanford; Kaasas defeated Washington State 34-0, which was no surprise, except for the fact that Kansas held scoreless an offense that was supposed to be more potent than the one that scored 31 points against the Jayhavvks last year; and, finally, Stanford, the Rose Bowl champ, defeated Missouri 19-0 in a game that was almost a carbon copy of pre-game forecasts, which figured Missouri to show a solid defense but weak offense. Against the SEC, Big Eight teams chalked up a 2-0 mark, and both victories were upsets- according to national predictions. In those games, Colorado blasted ninth-ranked Louisiana State, 31-21, and Oklahoma State brushed aside Mississippi State, 26-7. The SEC established an early domination over the Pac-8 with Alabama whipping No. 5 ranked USC 17-10 and Georgia humbling Oregon State 56-25. Arkansas, Southwest Conference power, made hay of California, 51-20. Another ranked Pac-8 team, UCLA, was bumped by Pitt 29-25 as Pepper Rodgers made an unsuccessful debut as Bruin head coach.

Roundup By George, He Did It Again By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Ageless George Blanda continues to> show the youngsters how to do it in pro football. Blanda, an athletic senior citizen at 43, threw a 54-yard touchdown pass and kicked a 31-yard field goal to lead the Oakland Raiders to a 24-3 victory over the Baltimore Colts in. a National Football League exhibition Saturday night. The victory was the fifth in a row for the Raiders and gave flioim particular satisfaction in that it reversed the outcome of the American Conference title game last season. The Colts won thai one and went on to brat Dallas in the Super Bowl. Chiefs I /ISO In other results on the last Saturday of the NFL pre-season schedule, Dallas whip|)ed Kansas City 24-17, San Diego downed Atlanta 21-14, Minnesota routed Miami 24-0 and Cincinnati and Washington played to a 17-17 tie. Blanda heaved his long TD pass to Fred Biletnikoff in the Gator Bowl at Jacksonville, Flu. "I just had the right play called on that pass," Blanda commented, adding "you don't have to look good when you throw the ball as long as it looks good down at tlie catching end." As for missing his try for a second field goal Old George Factory-trained Service on these Component Stereo System: said "if I made them all they couldn't afford to pay me enough to play." Quarterback Earl Morrall completed only nine of 31 passes for the colts. "A second early, a second late- or overthrown, that's the way it went," commented Morrall. A 70-yard TD from Craig Morion to Gloster Richardson with four minutes left gave Dallas its victory over Kansas City and a perfect 6-0 exhibition record. Len Dawson of the Chiefs completed 10 of 12 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns in the Cot-ton Bowl game. Bill Kilmer, subbing at quarterback for the injured Sonny Jurgcnson, fired a 42-yard pass to Jerry Smith in the last quarter to gain the deadlock for the Redskins against the Bengals in Washington. Johnson Breaks Away The play came only a few minutes after Essex Johnson had sprinted 43 yards for a touchdown that put Cincinnati ahead. With regular John Hadl given a rest, reserve quarterbacks Marty Domres and Wayne Clark led the Chargers over the Falcons in San Diego. The rushing of Clint Jones sparked the Vikings in tlieir ltoime field rout of the- Dolpluns.

Patek got the pair's 96th steal in the third inning against the Chicago White Sox to put them on ahead of Chicago's 1966 twosome of Don Buford and Tommie Agee. Patek's third inning steal was his 49th, high in the AL. Otis stole his 48th later the same u> ning, giving Uie two Royals 97.

Sherman MO 2-1254 KU, KSU Surprising KANSAS CITY (AP) - Put Kansas, Oklahoma State, Colorado and Kansas State down as the big surprises of the first week of action for Big Eight Conference football teams. The Kansas Jayhawks' victory over Washington State Saturday may not have been too much of a surprise but the score of 34-0 certainly was. The Oklahoma State Cowboys walloped Mississippi State 26-7. Colorado made Coach Eddie Crowder look good. Crowder said his sophomore quarterback, Ken Johnson, "will be a fine quarterback." Johnson was and the Buffaloes upset Louisiana State in a night game 3121. Different Story Kansas State, expected to win rather easily, surprised in a different sort of way. The Wildcats bowed to Utah State 10-7. Nebraska and Missouri, the other Big Eight teams in action, surpised nobody. The national defending champion Cornhuskers clobbered Oregon 34-7. Missouri lived up to its advance billing of good defense and not much offense and was beaten by Rose Bowl champion Stanford 19-0. Oklahoma and Iowa State launch their campaigns this week. Kansas moved 76 yards in 10 plays with the opening kickoff at Lawrence, Kan., with Dan Heck scotting around right end for the touchdown from 11 yards out. Washington State never recovered. By halftime, it was 21-0 after Steve Conley bolted over from the six and Heck found Conley with an 11- yard TD pass. The Jayhawks, who had the Big Eight's poorest defense last season, set up three scores with pass interceptions by Mark Geraghty and Joe Shannon and a 30-yard return of a fumble plucked out of the air by Tommy Oakson. New Kansas Coach Don Fam- brought praised his defense. "To be perfectly honest," Fambrough said, "I didn't think we could shut them out because Washington State has a potent offense. We certainly leaked at times but, boy, when they had to make the big play, they did." OSU Explosive Oklahoma State threw a double barreled quarterback piuich of Tony Pounds and sophomore Brent Blackman at Mississippi State at Stillwater, Okla., plus the magnificent rushing and pass receiving of Dick Graham. Graham ignited the Cowboys' offense with an 81-yard punt return for a TD in the opening quarter. He scored again in the fourth period by ratehing a 21- yard pass from Pounds. Oklahoma State ground out 157 yards rushing and added 194 yards, passing. Charlie. Davis, a sophomore like Johnson, collected 175 yards through LSU's vaunted defense at Baton Rouge, La. He scored twice on runs of 47 and three yards. Johnson put the buffs ahead in the first period with a seven-yard pass to Willie Nichols. Cliff Branch, the Colorado track star, broke the game open with a 75-yard touchdown on a^uitf return after the Buffs had nursed a 10-7 halftime advantage. LSU was ranked ninth in the pre-season poll and led the nation against the rushing game a year ago. Kansas State succumbed to Mickey Doyle's 43-yard field goal with 7:28 remaining at Manhattan, Kan. The Wildcats got off only one good drive, a 96-yard march aided by two 15- yard penalties on 11 plays in the fourth quarter with Bill Butler crashing off tackle from two yards away. The Wildcats, accustomed to piling up the aerial yardage while Lynn Dickey was around, could muster only 39 yards while Utah State stacked up 130. "Our offense was very inconsistent," said a disappointed Kansas State Coach Vince Gibson. "I thought our defense did real good. Two or three key plays killed us." Nebraska, ranked No. 2 in the pre-season poll, had too much defense for Oregon in their game at Lincoln, Neb., not to mention offense. The Cornhuskers held the Ducks to 86 yards rushing. Gary Dixon, a junior college transfer, scored three times on runs of two, two and six yards. , The Cornhuskers, extending their string of games without a loss to 20, made sustained marches of 67, 47 and 99 yards for their first three touchdowns. Quarterback Jerry Tagge set Nebraska's all-time passing yardage record with eight completions on 10 tosses for 98 yards. He has a career total of 2,989 yards, eclipsing the old mark of 2,935 set by Bob Churchich. Missouri's offense couldn't pick up a first down until 8:25 remained in the second quarter against Stanford at Columbia, Ma.
