OU Draws Top Billing National Spotlight Focused On Big 8 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The National Collegiate Athletic Association says that defense may be making a comeback in college football, but Oklahoma and Southern California intend to put a stop to that nonsense Saturday. "I don't think we'll play another team so deep in talent," says Oklahoma's Chuck Fairbanks. "Oklahoma is a tremendous offensive team," says Southern Cal's John McKay. "They have the best speed at halfback of any team in the country." The game between the eighth- ranked Sooners and No. 17 USC at Norman, Okla., is one of two pairing members of The Associated Press Top Twenty. Duke, No. 19, faces lOth-ranked Stanford on the West Coast. Defense Improved? Last weekend's major college' games, according to the NCAA, were the lowest scoring since Sept. 28, 1968, with an average of 37.6 points for both teams combined. The 16 shutouts were the most since Nov. 17, 1965. With the season nearly one- fourth gone the combined scoring average is 38.6, compared to 42.6 last season and a record 43.2 in 1969. And the current total of 41 shutouts is only 35 behind the entire 1970 campaign. Oklahoma, however, has done its best to keep the average from slipping too far. The Soo­ ners have walloped Southern Methodist 30-0 and Pitt 55-29 with their explosive Wishbone attack grinding out 760 rushing yards. Greg Pruitt and Joe Wylie are the top gainers with inflated averages of 9.0 and 8.7 per carry, respectively. Quarterback Jack Mildren has a 5.5 average and Pitt's Carl DePasqua says that "as far as I am con -i cerned, with the system they j Tough Test in Line For USC Defense NORMAN, Oklahoma (AP) Southern California's defensive troops, which haven't alowed a score in more than 10 full quar- • ters of football, get a genuine • challenge Saturday against offensive-oriented Oklahoma. The intersectional contest, third in a series dating back to 1964, is expected to attract a crowd of 61,000. Unbeaten Oklahoma, winner over Southern Methodist and Pittsburgh, is favored to trim Southern Cal, loser to Alabama but victor over Rice and Illinois. The Trojans have held the ; enemy scoreless for 159 min;• utes 54 seconds— 10 quarters f plus the final 9:54 of the second * period in the Alabama game. Trojan Coach John McKay, : however, hastens to make a point. "Remember the shutout against Rice came in a driving rainstrom at Houston and the other, Illinois, against a team that has not yet scored a point in three games," said McKay. In its last game, the Sooners ran over Pitt, 55-29. The offense gained 567 yards, 418 on the ground. McKay singled out several Sooners to watch, notably quarterback Jack Mildren "and two great running backs in Joe Wylie and Greg Pruitt." Against Pitt, Wylie scored three touchdowns, one on an 85- yard kickoff return, the others on runs of 13 and 19 yards. Mildren, a senior, was voted the outstanding player of the game. Mildren was flawless in executing the wishbone-T attack. He rushed for 67 yards, including a 41-yard keeper, scored three touchdowns and completed two of three passes for 79 yards. The longest was a bomb for 76 yards to flanker Jon Harrison. The Sooners have scouted Southern Cal well for Coach Chuck Fairbanks. An aide, Larry Lacewell, had particular praise for quarterback Jimmy Jones for his passing and option runs, and running back Sam Cunningham. Utah State Vs. No. 1 Nebraska Unbeaten Teams Meet At Lincoln LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska's top-ranked Corn huskers will be trying to extend their unbeaten football string to 23 games Saturday when they play host to unbeaten Utah State in a last intersectional contest before the Cornhuskers open defense of their Big Eight title next week. The Nebraska unbeaten streak-marred only by a tie last year with Southern California- stretches back to an early-season loss to Missouri in 1969 and includes three decisive j triumphs this year. A sellout crowd of more than 66,000 is expected in Memorial Stadium. The Cornhuskers have displayed a staunch defense and a versatile offensive in their victories, but Coach Bob Devaney says his team has not "played a real good football team yet," Utah State has given up only 14 points in three games. But the Aggie defense will be put to ; its stiffest test yet by the passing combination of quarterback Jerry Tagge to flanker Johnny Rodgers, who have clicked for four touchdown pas­ ses in the past two weeks, and a running game featuring Iback Jeff Kinney. Although Kinney has been hampered during the week by a mild intestinal infection, he's expected to play Saturday. Utah State has intercepted nine enemy passes the past two Saturdays but starting safety Dennis Ferguson broke a hand last week and will be sidelined Saturday. Offensively, the Aggies move on the passing of quarterback Tony Adams, the receiving of Bob Wicks and the rushing of Jerry Hughes. Adams has thrown for 325 yards in three games while Wicks has caught nine passes for 168 yards. The Aggie weapons also include punter Mickey Doyle, whose 42.3-yard average ranks eighth in the nation. To stop the Utah State attack, Nebraska will use a veteran defense which has allowed just three touchdowns so far, including a kickoff return. have Mildren is the finest I've ever seen. His pitches are just fantastic." Southern Cal shows averages of 5.5 for Lou Harris and 3.8 for Sam Cunningham, but Larry Lacewell, an Oklahoma assistant coach, says, "One of Southern Cal's coaches told me that Cunningham, who weighs 220 pounds, has the fastest start for the first 10 yards of anybody he's seen." NU Heavy Favorite Top-rated Nebraska is a heavy favorite at home over Utah State, even though both teams have 3-0 records. Second- ranked Michigan entertains undermanned Navy but Texas, No. 3, and Notre Dame, rated /ourth, could have their hands full against Oregon and Mich igan State, respectively, also at home. Rounding out the Top Ten, No. 5 Auburn entertains Kentucky, No. 6 Colorado hosts Kansas State, seventh-ranked Alabama tangles with Mississippi in Birmingham and Air Force visits No. 9 Penn State. Texas and Oregon may be forced to use second-string quarterbacks. Texas' Eddie Phillips, suffering from a hamstring pull and a bruised toa, has had only one work day in weeks—a 28-10 victory over UCLA on Sept. 18. His sub, Donnis Wiggington, scored twice in last week's triumph over Texas Tech. Fouts Injured Dan Fouts, second leading passer in Oregon history and still only a junior, suffered strained knee ligaments in last week's loss to Stanford. His backup, Harvey Winn, has thrown only 10 passes in three games. But Oregon's tailback, Bobby Moore, "is the most elusive, outstanding talent we've looked at in a long time," says Texas' Darnell Royal. "Keeping him out of the end zone is the toughest assignment our defense has had so far this year. I'll tell you this—Fouts' replacement will find a way to get the ball to Moore even if he has to walk out there and hand it to him." Notre Dame has gone from a 50-7 rout of Northwestern to an 8-7 squeaker against Purdue, but Michigan State's Duffy Daugherty says of the latter game, "The weather was so bad it made it very difficult for both teams to execute their plays." After a pair of 10-0 contests- beating Illinois and losing to Georgia Tech—Michigan State got "some more explosiveness in our attack last week" and downed Oregon State 31-14 as quarterback Frank Kolch made his first start and completed 10 of 17 passes, two for touchdowns. Offense Now Moving "Up until last Saturday, Michigan State's strong suit was that physical defensive unit," says Notre Dame's Ara Parseghian. "But our scouts tell us that they've put their offense all together now and Duffy has a well-balanced team." Auburn goes after its second straight Southeastern Conference triumph against Kentucky while Colorado starts its Big Eight season against Kansas State and Alabama and Mississippi play an important SEC game. Among Second Ten teams, No. 11 Georgia entertains Mississippi State and 12th-ranked Tennessee invades Florida for a night game with its former coach, Doug Dickey. Elsewhere, it's Texas-El Paso at No. 13 Arizona State under the lights, California at No. 14 Ohio State, No. 15 Washington at Illinois, Rice at No. 16 Louisiana State at night, Texas Christian at No. 18 Arkansas and No. 20 North Carolina at North Carolina State.

For the past two weeks the Hawks have played under less than favorable weather conditions. During the 17-13 win over Wichita Southeast, both teams fought wind and rain. Last week, when the Salt Hawks lost to El Dorado in overtime, they played in t h e mud. For a ball club that does not have a 200-pounder on its roster, mud is a definite handicap. Winfield has much the same problem. The Vikings are about the same size as the Salt Hawks and their coach, Al Holderman, feels his backs could do much better with dry footing. The Vikings are 1-2 for the season and Hutch is 2-1. Last year Winfield ninped the Hawks 14-12 and would like to make it two in a row. The Vikings will be without two-way performer Steve Nichols who suffered a head injury in the Wellington game last week and will miss at least four games. Nichols plays tight end on offense and defensive end. Coach Glenn Percy and his staff feel the Salt Hawks must try to establish their passing game this week. Junior quarterback Doug Baar is a good passer, but has not had a chance to go to the air much in the last two games. Hutchinson's running game is carried by slot back Kelvin O'Brien, also a fine receiver, and tailback Scott Butterficld. Mike Franko, t h e Hawk fullback, has been used sparingly as a runner because he is so valuable as a blocker. The Salt Hawk coaching staff has juggled the lineup this week in order to give several players who have been going both ways a chance to concentrate on defense. I Brian Cully will be at weak- tackle and Brad Stephenson at weak guard, freeing Don Grossardt to go full time at defensive tackle. Jim Hubbard, a 135-pound junior, will be at split end in place of Rich Duncan who will spend full time on defense. Scott Willett will be doing double duty this week, filling in at tight end for Mike Love, who has not worked out much because of a bad leg, and also is playing linebacker on defense. Willett and Mike Franko, who is a cornerback on defense, will be the only two Hawks playing both ways Saturday night. Brad Wood will take over the cornerback spot left open by Kevin Bleything, who must sit out the remainder of the season with a back injury. The Salt Hawks will be looking for their first Ark Valley win.

(AP) — Mario Andretti showed up at Watkins Glen Friday to qualify his Ferrari for the U.S. Grand Prix—with very little hope of actually driving in the $260,000 event. The three-time U.S. driving champion is committed to compete Sunday in a 300-mile race for USAC championship cars at Trenton, N.J. But, as he put it," My heart is here at the Glen and there's always a possibility that Trenton will be postponed again. He will be joined in Saturday's final session of time trials by Mark Donohne of Media, Pa., who also is committed to Trenton. Filed Early The two had filed early entries for the Grand Prix, America's second most prestigious auto race behind the In- dianapolic 500, but saw their hopes dashed when the USAC race was rained out last Sunday and reset to conflict with the Grand Prix. Andretti is one of three drivers entered at the Glen by Ferrari of Italy. The others are Jacky Ickx of Belgium and Clay Regazzoni of Switzerland. If Andretti is unable to compete Sunday, his car will be scratched and his place on the grid taken by someone else. Donohue's McLaren M16 owned by Philadelphia Roger Penske, lists Britisher David Hobbs as the reserve driver. If Donohue fails to make it Hobbs will be the Grand Prix starter. Andretti and most of the other Formula 1 regulars got in their first official practice and qualifying runs Friday over the Glen's new 3.37-mile circuit, rebuilt during the summer at a cost of $2 million. Stewart Also Competing Ickx and Andretti were joined by Scotlands Jackie Stewart in a group that got their lap times below 1 minute, 46 seconds and a speed range of just over 11.5 miles per hour. Stewart, who already has his second world driving title locked up, predicted that Saturday's pole winner will need to get below 1 minute 43 seconds. "I expect several will get down to that range," the mighty Scot said. "It takes a bit of time to learn a new circuit, and this one doesn't come easily. But it is a safe course and that's what counts." Ickx holds the one-lap record for the Glen's old 2.3 mile circuit 131.28 mph By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Dallas Cowboys will b back at the same old stand Sunday but they won't be playing the same old Washington Redskins. The Cowboys' now home—the new Texas Stadium—won't be ready for them but the Redskins should be. Washington, .sporting a 2-0 record, will be out to snap a first-place tie with Dallas in the Eastern Division of the National Football League's National Conference and to end a string of six losses to the Cowboys. But the string was put together while many of this year's Redskins were with clubs such as Los Angeles and New Orleans. Quarterback Billy Kilmer, former New Orleans starter filling in for injured Sonny Jurgensen, and a defense that lias allowed an NFL low 20 points for two games leads Washington against a Dallas team that is tough both ways. Craig Morton will start at quarterback for Dallas. Other Games In other Sunday games, Chicago, 2-0, is at Los Angeles, 0-11; Atlanta, 1-0-1, at Detroit, 1-1; Baltimore, 1-1, at New England, 1-1; Buffalo, 0-2, at Minnesota, 1-1; San Diego, 1-1; at Pittsburgh, 1-1. The New York Jets, 0-2 at Miami, 1-0-1, New Orleans, 1-1, at Houston, 0-2; San Francisco, 1-1, at Philadelphia, 0-2; Cincinnati, 1-1, at Green Bay, 1-1; Kansas City, 1-1, at Denver, 01-1; New York Giants, 1-1, at St. Louis, 1-1. Monday night Oakland, 1-1, will be at Cleveland, 2-0, for a nationally televised game. It will be shown on ABC starting at 8 p.m. CDT. Jack Concannon once again will start, for Chicago although it was the last minute heroics of Kent Nix that enabled the Bears to upset Pittsburgh and Minnesota. The game figures to be dominated by defense, always Chicago and Los Angeles strengths. Bob Berry's passing is the big weapon for Atlanta, and il will have to be sharp to penetrate the tough Detroit defense. New England and rookie quarterback Jim Plunkctt ran into Detroit coming off a tough loss. Now they will have to contend with a Baltimore club stung,by a one-point loss to Cleveland last week. Same Problem Buffalo has much the same problem as New England. The Bills will be facing a Minnesota team gunning to get back on the track after the stunning upset by Chicago. San Diego once again will count on hot-and-cold quarterback John HadI and will have to stop Pittsburgh's Terry Bradshaw whose confidence is beginning to match his passing ability. The Jets will be trying to get their sputtering offense started while their defense will have to tighten considerably to stop the running of Jim Kiick and Larry Csonka and the passing of Bob Griesc. It will be a battle of rookie quarterbacks in Houston, featuring New Orleans' Archie Manning and Lynn Dickey who has been named to start for the Oilers. Long Season for Eagles? If Philadelphia's first two games are any indication, Sunday figures to be a big day for San Francisco quarterback John Brodie. CARPET SALE Reg. $7.95 Nylon Patterned Kitchen Carpet $r 95 sq. yd.
