By JIM EAKLE : Tribune Sports Writer BOISE, Idaho -- The Colorado State College Bears are truly c "wrecking crew." Not only does their .defense liold opponents lo pclly" yardage -- an average of 2!U yards rushing per game -- ' b u t they tib other destructive things too. "^·S'alurday afternoon, under a sunny Idaho sky, the C-Stale "gridders scored : Ifi. spirited 'points to beat.the Boise'State Broncos lfi-10. The i'vin not only .wrecked Ihe Bronco 10-game ginning streak, but spoiled the 'JBdise Stale homecoming for ov- ·er"8,500 Bronco Stadium spec- .Ha'iors. Bears Undefeated ' : ''CSC is presently undefeated at 4-0 and in first place in the Hocky Mountain Plains Division willi a record of 2-0. Boise Stale is now 4-1. It was a non- 'fcbnference game. · The Bears thrived under (lie ·expert passing of George JKap- r -1an. "Dandy George" tossed 17 "of 28 for 211 total yards. Kaplan "tlirew a 7-yard pass to Dennis Becking for the first Bear touchdown in the third period; The teams waged a tremendous first half defensive battle. The score at halftime was 0-0. All of CSCV scoring came from costly s Boise State mis- lakes. The Broncos fumbled four-limes: one that led. to, a touchdoWivone that was a CSC touchdown, one .that led to a and one that stopped a.Bo'ise State drive on llu^Bear 12 .with-just 12 'seconds .left-in ' ' .", '[ .' Fumbles Hurt Broncos, The Bears Joe Drew, recovered a fumble on Die CSC 12 with inly seconds · remaining., It choked off a Bronco drive that started on the CSC 47. after n blocked CSC punt. If the spirited Broncos' could have 1 scored, he board would have rehd 16,-lG. The extra point kick, if success- ~ul, would havo given the win o Boise. Their extra-point kick- :r Gary Strivers is one of the lop booters in Ihe area. End Barry West recovered a fumble oii the. Bronco 39 after a CSC punt. The Bears - scored seven plays later on Bccking's pass reception. CSC middle guard' Ralph Sclmiadeke recovered another Boise State miscue on the BSC 38 shortly after the next kick, off.' The Bears pushed to the 7-yard line and elected to try for a field goal. Kula's boot was good and CSC led 9-0. Schmadeke recovered another fumble -- this time in Ihe end zone -- for the final CSC touchdown. .Bronco Scoring .* * * ·jBeor Sidelights Bear Defense Tough; f Good Grid Weather ' BOISE,. IDAHO .-- Boise state .totaled only.njinus one yard on punt returns'and 0 yards.on kickoff returns. The last time.CSC. won four games in a row was in 1959. 1 Last year the Bears won llirec straight games.,. . T h e Broncos came back and iO' seconds later scored on a 51-yard pass from Pat Ebright to Dennis Poolcy; Their other mints came on a Slivers 35- wd field goal with 7 minutes ·emalning in the game. .Boise mistakes weren't the key reason why -the Bears won. They played n spirited fine defensive till.. They allowed only J7 yards rushing. The defensive line was tough. The Bear secondary allowed only eight ot 23 attempted passes completed. The CSC offensive line was not sharp early in the game, but during the second half, they gaVe signal caller Kaplan pleiv ly of time to pass. And pass he did. Of his 17 completions, seven went lo running back Mick Holmes who ran for 98 yards. He lead in that department. Barry West caught several koy losses -- two during scoring drives -- totaling 112 yards.. Becking, Ben Pyatt, nnd Dave Gibson caught the remaining four. Running Game Slopped The' CSC running game was not outstanding. They were up ed back by a tremendous Boise against a real tough Boise defense interior line that allowed minus 31 yards rushing! Several times the Bears had fourth down and over twenty yards to go for a first down. It was Kaplan's passing that sparked the Bears. The .leading CSC rusher was Pyatt wilh only 25 yards. The key li- Boise's game was Iho passing of quarterback Pal Ebright. He completed eight of 23 for 134 yards, one for a louch- down. His key larget was flanker Dennis Pooley who had 03 yards. Dennis Baird and Dave Toney also received several asses. Ebright was held to minus C2 yards rushing by the CSC "wrecking crew." Couldn't Hit Paydirt In the first- period, the Bears went right down to. business. They look the opening kickotf and ran to the Boise 28 sparked by a Kaplan pass lo Holmes totaling 38 yards. A field goal attempted from the 35 by George Derr was short and no good. After Boise had the ball for a stalemated drive lhat went to the Boise 22, they punted to the CSC 28. Rick Pierson took the ball and pranced lo Ihe Boise Stale 33 with a fine punt return. A Holmes run and a West pass helped move the ball lo the 1R. Kaplan rolled out lo the 3. Pyatt took twice putting the ball on the 1 foot line. With a fourth and goal situation, Kaplan carried up the middle for an apparent touchdown but was push- line for no gain. Boise worked from the one and pushed all Ihe way to the CSC 33. Star kicker Stivers tried for a field goal that failed. The teams played "cat and mouse" until the end of the first half. The Scoreboard read 0-0 when (he gun sounded. Schmadeke Scores The Bears Schmadeke nabbed his second fumble in Ihe Boise, end zone wilh five minutes remaining. It came on a third and 13 situation from the Boise 4. the Broncos desperately sparked up with a touchdown at 4:10. The drive came after he CSC kickoff following their ast TD. Ebright threw a long bomb to Pooley who ran 51 yards for the score. The Bears 4 took the kickoff and were knocked for several losses by the tough and revived Boise defense before electing to punt. The Broncs took the ball at the CSC 47 and eagerly looked to Ihe C-State end zone and lo a possible victory. They valli- anlly oushed and drove to the The Bear defense is now giving up just 29.3 rushing yards -^)er game and'only 153.7 total yards, CSC's offense is'averag- ing 3B:i.7 yards per tilt. They are passing for 796 and rushing for 76(1 -- a balanced attack. This is the first lime passing I yardage has led rushing this year. The weather was outstanding Saturday afternoon. The estimated temperature was 55-GO degrees with sunny and warm skies. It was rumored during the trip that the team might have to spend Sunday in Boise because Slapleton Airport in Denver was closed. The airport was opened and the Bears flew home on their chartered Esles Airliner' al 10 p.m. The CSC bus got. stuck at Staplcton while waiting for the learn. It took a tractor to pull them out. The squad arrived by bus in Greeley Sunday morning about 12:30 a.m. Eleven of the Boars had lo travel by commercial airliner because of limited space on the chartered craft. Quarterback Georpc Kaplan was kidded alxlut liis rushing totals Saturday. He shrugged .it off lightly showing rib- hers his passing slats. They shut up! Kaplan totaled minus 43 yards rushing.

Pressure Plays Aid C-State BOISE; Idaho -- "We showed great poise under the tremendous game pressure and under the fine attack of the 1 Boise front defensive four. We came up with the big play everytime we needed it. It was our victory alt the way." Head C-State grid coach .Bob Blasi ,was extremely happy over the CSC win over tough and big Boise Stale Saturday at Boise. The Bears are undefeated at 4-0, and are in first place in the Rocky. Mountain Plains Division. The big', plays Blasi referrec to were the fumble recovery by Joe Drew · with 12 seconds remaining. It slopped a Boise State drive on the CSC 7. Ralph Schamadeke tackled a Boise State running back in their end ·fane and recovered a fumble for a Bear score, right when they needed it. Chuck Putniek recovered a fumble on a CSC punt after Barry West tackled the Bron co runner. It was key plays like this that allowed the CSC Bears to beat Boise State. Tough Front Four "The Boise defensive 'front four was plain tough! They gave us trouble and held back our running game. Despite this CSC-Boise St. Movies To Be Shown Tuesday The movies of the Colorado State College - Boise State football game will be shown at Tuesday's Quarterback Club luncheon at the Community Building.

He had plenty of time to throw," Blasi said. Kapplan completed 17 passes for 211 yards. The C-Slate defense was exceptional the entire game. The line held Boise to 57 yards rushing and the secondary was tough, making only one mistake --Boise's only TD late in the »ame. Deserved fo Win "The stalislics show that we deserved to win. Sure, Boise made some mistakes, but .we had to capitalize, on these and work from' there, and. we did. We hit Boise'hard, when you hit hard, they make mistakes. We f orced them to bobble," Blasi said. Blasi also cited the CSC 'punt coverage crew. "They did' a fine job. Boise' returned two punts for minus one yard. We kept them in iheir own backyard." '.''

Missouri opened its league season Saturday by crashing past Nebraska', 17-7, and nobody was more surprised than Coach Dan Dcvine at the way :iis Tigers ran the ball for 2V. yards against the heraldec 3ornhusker defense. Oklahoma, which lost early to Colorado last season and then .ook up pursuit of Missouri and Kansas and finally beat them 30th in the closing weeks of the season to tie the Jayhawks for the Big Eight title, lost 27-17 to second-ranked Texas in the Sooners' final tuneup .for conference play.
