' ON HIS WAY Nebraska halfback Johnny Rodgers gets away from Johnny Musso (22) and Dave Knapp (39) of Alabama during his 77-yard punt return in the first period of the Orange Bowl game. . (AP) evaney Calls Club e of 'Greatest' Continued From Page C-l for three quarters of the length of the field, and he was carried off the field unconscious in a collision that preceded the fourth Cornhusker score. In the stands, an exuberant Nebraska fan hung up a bunting which appropriately read: "Low Tide." Alabama, throttled at almost every turn by Nebraska's tough 234-pound middle guard Rich Glover and his swarming mates, showed only one spark of the team that rushed an average of 324 yards a game and scored an average of 32.9 points a game in an 11-game winning season. Early in the third period, Terry Davis, a frail-looking, 173-pound quarterback marched his frustrated teammates 55 yards almost singlehandedly, ripping off runs of 28 and 13 yards, and sneaked over for Alabama's touchdown from the three. A try for a two-point conversion failed. The game demonstrated Nebraska's pro-like poise, hitting power and balanced strength. Six players participated in the scoring. Fullback Jeff Kinney went over from the one after Williams interfered with Woody Cox on a pass thrown to the Ala bama three. Rodgers dramatic run came on the last play of the opening period. He took Greg Gantt's kick on his own 23, got a fine block by Bob Terrio and outran the Ala bama secondary. Jerry Tagge, the Nebraska MIAMI (AP) Nebraska rejoiced at midfield of the Orange Bowl after locking up a second straight national championship Saturday night and Alabama Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant showed his respect for the Corn-huskers by raising a salute amid shouts of "We're No. 1." Nebraska smothered the Crimson Tide 38-6 in a showdown between the nation's two top-ranked college teams and Bryant looked like just another proud Cornhusker fan mobbing the red-shirted heroes. "This is one of the greatest teams ever to play football," Athletic Managers List Top 8 Craig Anderson of Lehigh University, a member of the College Athletic Business Managers' Assn., announces that eight men are being considered for the group's annual Business Manager of The Year award. The recipient will be named during the association's convention at Miami Beach Jan. 10-11-12. Anderson will represent Lehigh at these sessions. Finalists for the business manager's award are Phillip Barry of Connecticut, Kenneth George of Pittsburgh, John H. O'Neill, Jr., of Georiga Tech, John G. Laetz of Michigan State, C. Harold Reid of Oklahoma, Frank R. Windegger of TCU, Philip B. McLaughlin of Arizona and Ralph M. Oswald of Washington. Anderson is a member of the CABMA national publicity committee. Bowling Open Starts Tomorrow NEW YORK (AP) The nation's leading professionals, including last year's winner, Mike Lemongello of North Babylon, N.Y., will be among 192 bowlers competing in the second annual $100,000 U.S. Open starting Monday in Madison Square Garden. The six-day event, which carries a $10,000 first prize and is sponsored by the Bowling Proprietors Association of America, will conclude Saturday in the Garden's Felt Forum. The four one-game elimination matches which make up the finals Saturday will be televised by ABC at 2:30 p.m. EST. 2 Beagles Lost On Hunting Trip isorman uerau ot 242 S. Chestnut St., Summit Hill, said he lost two eight-month old beagles during a jackrabbit hunting trip in the Mount Po-cono area. Derau said the dogs were lost Monday and he has returned to the area daily. He described the animals as a 13-inch tri-color and a 15-inch tan beagles. He may be contacted by telephone at 717-645-9135. Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney declared, toweling his chubby face after being thrown into the shower by his players. Asked when he became convinced the Huskers were among the game's greats, Devaney said: "Tonight." "The victory, equalling Bryant's worst defeat in a glorious 27-year coaching career, was Nebraska's 23rd straight and extended its nonlosing streak to 32. "After ranking Nebraska No. 1," Devaney said when pressed about national rankings. "I would put Oklahoma No. 2 and maybe Colorado should be No. 3," All three are from the powerful Big Eight Conference. Oklahoma, loser only to the Huskers, smashed Alabama's cross-state rival, Auburn, 20-22 in the Sugar Bowl. Colorado decked Houston in the Bluebonnet Bowl and fell only to Nebraska and Oklahoma. "The Big Eight is the toughest conference ... no contest," said massive Husker defensive line man Rich Glover. "Nebraska is, of course, on top with Oklahoma second and Colorado definitely third." As for the beaten Bama team, Glover said, "I guess we hit a little too tough and a little too quick. As far as I'm concerned, the pressure was off after we whipped Oklahoma 35-31." Johnny Rodgers, who broke a 77-yard punt return for a touch down, said, It started slowly, but then opened up and all I could see between me and the goal was that green carpet." Devaney said the Orange Bowl triumph "was probably our most important victory ever, but the Oklahoma game on Thanksgiving had to be more exciting." Devaney's blood-red shirt dripped from the victory shower and newsmen turned the dressing room into college football's answer to the running of the bulls. "Well, this makes sure I take at least one bath every year," said the dripping Devaney. quarterback who called a skilled game, scored from the one and Gary Dixon from the two in the second period after Alabama fumbled in Tide territory. Rich Sanger, the Nebraska kicking specialist who missed from the 25 earlier, kicked a 21-yard field goal midway of the fourth period. Nebraska ended its scoring spree when Jim Anderson plucked off a Davis pass and ran 31 yards to the Alabama three, from where Van Brown-son ran it across. Nebraska's superiority was not fully reflected in the statistics which showed a total of 342 yards for the Cornhuskers compared with 288 for Alabama, and one less in first downs, 15 to 16. Musso was held to 79 yards while Kinney led the rushing for Nebraska with 99 and Tagge, completed 11 passes for 159 yards compared with Davis' three for 47. Rodgers caught four Nebraska passes for 84 yards. Individual Statistics MIAMI (AP) Individual statistics for Saturday's Orange Bowl game. RUSHING Nebraska: Kinney 20-99, Brownson 4-22.

Dietzel Not Interested In Dual Role at Denver COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Paul Dietzel, University of South Carolina athletic director and head football coach, says he has asked that his name be dropped from consideration for the post of head coach and general manager of the Denver Broncos of the National , Football League. Dietzel, who was interviewed during the week by Bronco officials in Denver, said he notified the pro football team's manage- ment Friday night that he did not want the job. The USC coach since 1966 said he telephoned Gerald Phipps, chairman of the board of the Denver elub, and expressed thanks for his consideration for the post. Dietzel issued a lengthy statement explaining his trip to Den ver and discussion with the offi cials. He said he wanted to remain at South Carolina and continue building the program he began six seasons ago.

(AP) Long- shot Pro Bidder romped to a two- length victory in the Southern Maryland Handicap, the feature event on the opening dav at Bowie Race Course Saturday. By the Associated Press Rick Foley scored with 51 seconds left in the game Saturday night to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-4 tie with the St. Louis Blues in a National Hockey League contest. In another game Ron Ellis scored the go-ahead goal as the Toronoto Maple Leafs exploded for four goals in the final period for a 5-2 triumph over the Mon-real Canadiens. The triumph marked the first time the Leafs had defeated Montreal this season. Foley's goal came on a power play with goalie Doug Favell out of the net for an extra attacker. The point for the tie put the Flyers in a fourth place tie with idle Pittsburgh in the West Division, while the Blues are a point behind. Up to the penalty to the Blues' Phil Roberto for deliberately falling on the puck, it looked like the Blues would win on Garry Unger's power play goal. That had followed a penalty to Philadelphia's Joe Watson for delay of game when he tossed the puck into the crowd. Jack Egers, who scored two goals for the Blues, put St. Louis ahead early in the first period, but Bobby Clarke tied it for the Flyers. Barclay Plager scored a shorthanded goal to put the Blues ahead again. The Flyers drew even again before the period ended on Gary Dornhoefer's goal at 19:20. Lew Morrison for Philadelphia and Egers for St. Louis scored in the second period. CCsi ELoDtt iiili ill!
