(AP)-Top- ranked Nebraska rolled to touchdowns the first two times the mighty Cornhuskers had the ball Saturday, and went on to a 42-6 victory over pre­ viously unbeaten Utah State in an intersectional football game. The undefeated Cornhuskers were never seriously threatened as they won their fourth game of the season and ran their unbeaten streak to 23 while Utah State suffered its first loss after three wins. Quarterback Jerry Tagge spearheaded the Nebraska attack, throwing for two touch­ downs and running one three yards for two more. Meanwhile, a gang-tackling defense led by end Willie Harper effectively checked the Ag­ gies except for a third-period drive capped by Tony Adams' 34-yard touchdown pass to Bob Wicks.

(AP) Kingsley Fink, a second-string sophomore quarterback, fired three touchdown passes in the ' second half Saturday and ral Jied rebounding Army to a 22 -6 .football victory over error-pla- -r^ued Missouri. -': • It was Army's second • triumph in three games, one . more than the Cadets won all last season. Missouri is 1-3. ' Army, which failed to capitalize on three fumble recoveries and an interception in the first half and trailed 6-3, finally broke through early in the third period after Gary Topping re< covered Otto Nichols' fumble at :? the Missouri 45. Eight plays later, Fink, who replaced Dick Atha midway in (he second period, sidestepped line. John Brown 's rush on down and whipped a 15-yard pass to Dave Sanders in the end zone. Atha had failed to complete a pass in nine attempts. Army got the ball back two minutes later when Mike Gainers returned a punt 11 yards to the Cadets' 46. On the second play, Ray Ritacco, who carried four times for 21 yards on the first touchdown strike, circled right end for 27 more to the Missouri 24. Three plays later, again on third down, Fink passed to 18 yards John Simar who made a lunging catch in the end zone. The Cadets went 50 yards in eight plays for their third touchdown with 10 minutes left in the game. The big gainer was a 25-yard pass from Fink to Ed Francis to the Tigers' 22. Once again, faced with a third down, Fink fired six yards to Bruce Simpson who made the catch as he fell across the goal third, A 56-yard run by quarterback Chuck Roper early in the second period gave Missouri a 6-3 half-time lead after Jim Barclay kicked a 40-yard field goal for Army in the first quarter.

Tagge's second scoring pass covered 36 yards to flanker Johnny Rodgers in the third quarter, and he finished his day by diving over from a yard out later in the period. Except for Adams' passes to Wick, the Aggies failed to move the ball well as the Comhusker defense consistently broke through the Utah State line.

Second-ranked Michigan's offense found stiff resistance in the first half, but the defense had little trouble recording its third consecutive shutout as the Wolverines crunched Navy, 460, Saturday in college football. Navy, an underdog by as many as 60 points, held U-M to a touchdown in each of the first and second quarters before giving way to their powerful opponent before 68,000 spectators at Michigan Stadium. Tailback Billy Taylor came off the bench to score on a one- yard touchdown in the 14-point final quarter. His backup man, sophomore Alan "Cowboy" Walker, had earlier scored touchdowns on runs of two and 17 yards in the second and third quarters, respectively. The victory was U-M's fourth without a loss, while Navy's record fell to 1-3. The initial U-M TD came on a one-yard plunge by fullback Fritz Seyferth, with the game Wk minutes old. It came four plays after Taylor's tackle forced Nayn to fumble and the Wolverines' Tom Coyle recov -j ered on the Middie 18. I game to propel unbeaten Iowa State to a 17-14 victory over Kent State University. Quarterback Dean Carlson, who ran for two earlier Cyclone scores, kept the winning drive alive just moments earlier with a 20-yard pass to WiJJie Jones on a second and long yardage situation. Iowa State, 3-0, will battle unbeaten Colorado next week in the Big Eight opener for both teams. Kent State, 1-3, trailed the entire game until knotting the intersectional contest early in the fourth quarter on a one-yard plunge by sophomore tailback Renard Harmon and a two- point conversion pass from quarterback Larry Hayes to fullback Bob Fell. The 55-yard drive came after the Golden Flashes intercepted their fourth pass off Carlson. The Cyclones held the upper hand for the first three quarters and only the field goal kicking of Gordon Ober kept KSU in the game. Carlson scored from five yards out with five minutes left in the first quarter for the initial Cyclone score, capping a 65-yard drive mostly on the ground. Ober kicked field goals of 23 and 20 yards in the second and third quarters to cut the gap to 7^6, but Carlson finished a 72- yard Iowa State third quarter drive with a two-yard touchdown dash pushing the Cyclones lead up to 14-6.

(AP) Undefeated and seventh ranked Alabama used its awesome power Saturday to ram the ball through the Mississippi defense and hand the Rebels their first loss, 40-6. A record crowd of 72,871 watched the Crimson Tide, behind Johnny Musso, Ellis Beck and Terry Davis, tear the Rebel line apart time after time as Alabama stayed almost en finely on the ground in the Southeastern Conference football game. The Rebels made a game of it tor a while, tying it at 6-6 in the second period and threatening to come close early in the third period before the Tide poured on the steam.

Bob Minnix scored a first period touchdowns and the Notrff' Dame defense stopped Michigan State with just eight first downs as the fourth-ranked Irish slipped past the Spartans 14-2 Saturday. The Irish, now 3-0, took the opening kickoff and ran eight minutes 10 seconds off the clock as they marched 80 yards in 17 plays for the first score. Minnix, a senior halfback, scored from the one. Michigan State, 2-2, started from its own 28 on the ensuing kickoff with Eric Allen ripping off 14 yards. Then junior quarterback Frank Kolch hit tight end Billy Joe DuPree up the middle and DuPree legged it 52 yard to the Notre Dame six. But the play was called back Penn State Nips Falcons UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) - Little Alberto Vitiello booted a 22-yard field goal with four minutes left as ninth-ranked Penn State squeezed out a 16-14 victory over stubborn Air Force Saturday. Vitiello, a 5 -foot -7 junior college transfer, had missed a point after a third period touchdown which helped Air Force take a 14-13 lead in the quarter. Penn State took a 13-7 lead early in the third period when defensive halfback Ed O'Neil intercepted one of six interceptions thrown by sophomore quarterback Rich Haynie and returned it 35 yards to the Air Force 11. Four plays later, Lydell Mitchell ran over from the two but Vitiello missed the point after touchdown attempt. The Falcons took the kickoff and immediately drove to the Penn State 1 before an interception by Charley Zapiec gave the ball back to the Lions at their 9-yard line. But two plays later, Franco Harris fumbled and Air Force linebacker Charles Richardson recovered the ball on the Penn State 22. Then Haynie, rambling sophomore quarterback, hit six-foot five end Paul Bassa in the end zone and the kick by Craig Barry put the Falcons ahead 14-13. The winning field goal was set up by an 18-yard run by Mitchell and a 27-yard play on which Harris fumbled after gaining 19 yards and quarterback John Hufnagel picked up eight more after the fumble. Hutchinson News Sunday, Oct. 3, 1971 Page 20 Giants Clip Bucs, 54 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Tito Fuentes and Willie McCovey slugged a pair of two- run homers in a sudden explosion of San Francisco power that carried the Giants to a 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh Saturday in the opening game of the National League's championship playoff series. Gritty Gaylord Perry pitched a nine-hitter, surviving several jams and some shoddy Giant fielding to give San Francisco a jump in the best-of-five series between the two division champions which continues here Sunday. Perry fell behind early when a misjudged fly ball and an error by McCovey helped the Pirates to a pair of runs in the third inning. San Francisco got one back in its half of the inning but Pirate starter Steve Blass was in control until the fifth. Blass, who averaged only five strikeouts per game during the regular season, struck out nine Giants over the first four innings, setting a National League playoff record. Pittsburgh led 2-1 after four. Chris Speier opened the Giant's fifth with a single to right. Perry sacrificed and then Ken Henderson, whose double in the third had scored the first Giant run, rolled out with Speier taking third. That brought up Fuente9, who had struck out in each of his first two changes against Blass. This time though, the little inficlder who had just four homers during the regular season in his major career, lofted a shot over the right field wall, giving the Giants the lead. Fuentes clapped his hands enthusiastically as he cricled the bases and the Giants em­ ptied out of their dugout to welcome him. Blass, shaken by the blow, walked Willie Mays, and then McCovey, a more legitimate long ball threat, unloaded a shot that tore into the upper deck in right field for two more runs and another happy dugout reception. Perry, a 16-game winner during the regular season, was touched for two runs in the third inning when Jackie Her- nandea opened with an infield single and Mass bunted him to second. Dave Cash hit a long fly to right field that Dave Kingman misjudged and tlvo ball skipped over the wall on one hop for a ground rule double and the first run of the game. Then when M ci C o v e y missed Fuentes, throw on Richie Hebner's grounder, Cash scored the second run of the inning. Players Sny 'Yes' Auburn In 38-6 Romp Will Rainout Hurt A's? .

Ole Miss had scored on a 48- yard pass from Kenny Lyons to Gene Allen. McPherson Falls, 29-0 DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) Randy Jakious passed for three touchdowns and 254 yards to lead St. Mary of the Plains past McPherson 29-0 and to its first victory in four games this season. Ron Herrman, 160-pound halfback—caught two of the touchdown passes and ran for another as St. Mary completely outclassed McPherson in the KCAC game. McPherson's record now stands at 0-4. Dame at the MSU 17 yard line two plays later. Sophomore Greg Hill scampered 11 yards on the first Irish play and Minnix rammed in from the six for his second score with 4:20 remaining in the first period. The only Spartan score came late in the quarter after MSU punter Bob Simpson booted 58 yards to the Irish one-yard line. On the first Notre Dame play, Spartan tackle Ron Curl slammed into halfback Larry Parker, who fumbled the ball into the end zone, where Irish quarterback Bill Etter fell on it for an MSU safety. Etter started his first game of the year and played until sustaining a bump on his right forearm early in the fourth quarter. Irish officials said the injury appeared minor and Etter was available to go into the game although Pat Steenbcrge went virtually the rest of the way at quarterback. Notre Dame held Michigan State to 32 yards rushing. AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Quarterback Pat Sullivan decimated Kentucky's defense, completing 16 of 25 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns, one a 59- yard bomb to Terry Beasley, to lead fifth-ranked Auburn to a 38-6 romp Saturday. Beasley's 19th career touchdown reception in the first period and Gardner Jett's earlier 37-yard field goal, his lith with out a miss extending back through last season, both set Southeastern Conference records. Beasley wound up catching nine of Sullivan's passes for 194 yards while Sullivan added 12 yards of his own on three running plays. Dick Schmalz hauled in Sullivan's second scoring pass for six yards. Tommy Lowry plunged across from the one, and James Owens from the seven. Robby Robinett took ai seven-yard touchdown pass from third string quarterback Ted Smith for the final score just two seconds beofre the game ended. Flanker Gary Knudson scored for Kentucky in the third period on a one yard run after quarterback Bernie i Scruggs had connected with a| 31-yard pass to Jim Grant, another for 14 to Ken O'Leary and still another for 14 to Doug Kotar. BALTIMORE (AP) - Man-,urday's ager Dick Williams said Saturday he didn't think the first game rainout of the American League playoffs would put his Oakland Athletics at a disadvantage against the Baltimore Orioles. Some of his players thought otherwise. "Let's face it," said third baseman and Captain Sal Bando, "they have four 20 game winners and we have only two. Now we can't come back with (Vida) Blue in the fourth game. I don't know what Williams will do on the fourth day." Williams made his intentions perfectly clear—he's going with a four-man pitching rotation but is unsure who will hurl the third game. He said he would add Diego Segui to the rotation of Blue, Jim "Catfish" Hunter and Chuck Dobson. "I don't know if Segui or Dobson will pitch the third game," Williams said after Sat- game was postponed. "I'll probably decide that tomorrow. I might give Dobson another day's rest and pitch Segui. Dobson's been having little elbow problem and the extra day might help him." He said Blue, the sophomore sensation who won 24 and lost 8 this year, would pitch the fifth game if it is necessary. Blue remained undaunted by the rainout and the prospect of pitching the fifth game with only three days rest. Asked if the postponement would hurt him, Blue replied: "no man, it helps." Why? "I'm ready, man," he said. "I'm ready." Williams said the postponement would hurt Baltimore more than it does Oakland because "we have done well after a day off." He said Oakland would only be disadvantaged by the loss of Monday's travel day. "If we go into the fourth game behind, we can't come back with Vida," Williams pointed out. Texas Rips Oregon AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) by Donnie Wigginton guided third ranked Texas to four touchdowns and a 35 -7 victory over Oregon Saturday after the Longhorns' star quarterback, Eddie Phillips, limped off early with a pulled leg muscle. Phillips, the director of Texas' Wishbone-T offense, was taken out late in the first quarter as a precautionary measure so he might be available next week when Texas plays undefeated Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas. Phillips has been bothered with an injured leg more than a month. Texas split end Jim Moore, the fastest man on the squad, Stub-,also went out of the game early with a sprained knee, hurt when Oregon defensive back Fred Manuel tackled him after a pass reception. Phillips directed Texas to its first score, a 39-yard drive on six playes after a 14-yard punt by Oregon into a stiff 18- mile an-hour wind. Fullback Bobby Callison bolted over from the three for the touchdown. His players, however, thought the rainout would bother Oakland more than it does Baltimore. "I don't know if my stomach can gake it," said Bando. "We clinched the pennant in the second week in September and we have been waiting for this playoff ever since. I just want to get it underway." First baseman Mike Epstein agreed with Bando. "Most of us haven't played much lately and none of us has hit now for three days," he said. "The pitchers have been throwing only four or five innings and the hitters have been in the games only five or six innings. This rainout has got to hurt us. We wanted to play." The Athletics learned of the postponement during a long meeting at their hotel in downtown Baltimore. After the homers by Fuentes and McCovey gave the Giants the lead, Perry worked through his toughest jams of the game. In the sixth inning, Perry struck out the first two batters but then surrendered a pair of singles to Bob Robertson and Manny Sanguillen. He escaped by getting pinch hitter Vic Davalillo on a force play grounder that he deflected to Fuentes. An inning later, the Pirates really had him on the ropes, Gene Alley opened with a single up the middle and Cash singled to left, giving Pittsburgh two men on Base and none out. Walked Clemente Perry bore down to get Hebner on a pop fly but walked Roberto Clemente, loading the bases. That brought up dangerous Willie Stargell, the major league's home run king. But Perry got him on another pop fly. Al Oliver however singled for two runs, making the score 5-4. But Perry got Robertson on i fly ball to end it. In the ninth, Ilcbner singled with one out, leaving Perry with Clemente and Stargell standing between him and tlio victory. He got Clemente line drive to right. After Manager Charlie Fox visited the mound for a conference, Perry forced StargeU to ground to McCovey for the final out.
