49ers 'Intercept' CSLA, 6th Win in Row, 42-0 By .JIM McCOKMACK SlafI Writer · At 8:02 Saturday night, Jeff .Severson intercepted his llth pass of the season and ran 58 yards for a touchdown. II was of little consequence that the Cal State Long Beach defensive back.lost all 58 yards be-, cause of a clipping penal-, ty. The 49ers' gaine with Cal State L.A. should have been canceled right, there. Seven game minutes later, Clarence Palmer intercepted a pass and returned it 44 brilliant yards for a touchdown. This one counted and was winging toward' its sixth win in a row, a'42-0 skunk-- ing of Pacific Coast'Athlct-, ic Assn. rival Cal State D.A. . Before the long evening would end, the 49er de- 'fense would collect a school-record seven interceptions including three by the remarkable Severson, who,'moved within two of the NCAA's "'college division standard of 15 intercepts lira season. The 49ers returned the interceptions 226 yards,. 64 more yards than the Dia- bios managed in 70 offensive plays. SUNDAY, NOV. 16, ]9W ·SECTION S - PAGE S-l Although it was definitely overshadowed, the Long Beach offense did function well, especially in the second half. Junior Sam Redd started in place of all-America candidate Leon Burns, slowed by a pulled ham- siring, and responded by gaining 105 yards and scoring a touchdown on a 15-yard run. Burns didn't carry the ball in the first quarter but saw enough action in the middle, periods to gain 1G3 yards on 27 carries. The first time he carried the ball the 223-pound Burns shot 20 yards behind right guard Dick Freeman for a touchdown that gave Cat State Long Beach (7-2) .a 14-0 lead. . lie scored again (nine yards) in the second quarter behind a great block by guard Jeff Roop and the 49ers were on top, .21-0, at halftime. .

A Day for Ducks 'Til Carver Cast Tall and Timely Shadow By OAVE LEWIS Staff Writer EUGENE, Ore.,-- With UCLA on the verge of being the victim of one of Ihe major upsets o f ' the year, little Ron Carver, the tiniest player on the field/ came" up \yith the biggest play of the game. Carver made a spectacular interception in the end . zone^-to break up a threat- · ening Oregon advance with less than three minutes to play .and preserve a breathless 13-10 victory for Ihe unbeaten Bruins Saturday. - As time was running out, Oregon marched to a first down on the UCLA 15, from where, quarterback John Harrington fired a pass into the end zoiw intended for "Super Soph" Bobby Moore, only to have the 5-9, 160-pound Cai-ver : make the biggest leap of his life and gather in the ball with only 2:50 showing on the clock. Carver then picked off his second pass two minutes later on the Oregon 39" after the Ducks were given a last-ditch opportunity to attack from their own 27-yard line following a 49-yard punt by Zenon Andrusyshyn. . The Bruins now will carry, an 8-0-1 record into their Rose Bowl showdown with USC next Saturday,/ but it will 'be a long time before the Bruins forget the long afternoon. UCLA never has played well on synthetic grass and Saturday proved no exception. The Univeristy of Oregon's new AstroTurf field probably was better than mud because if it hadn't been for the nylon tiirf,' the game would have been played in a quagmire following a heavy six-hour downpqur' which lasted through the first half. · Obviously 'bothered . b y the unfamiliar footing of the AstroTurf field, especially; its slippery condition, due to the rain, the Bruins' lacked their usual timing and rhylhmn and as a result nearly blew the game on their own mis- lakes. . . . Although UCLA led 7-0 at halftime, the Bruins cost themselves .a chance to break t h e - g a m e open when ' they muffed three . scoring opportunities -two in the first five minutes of play. On top of that,-after Ore- 'gon was unable to make a first down until 4/£ min- ules into the'second quarter, the Bruins had-lo-fight them off twice in that period lo maintain their slim advantage at Hie .intermission. · There were all the signs of a stunning upset in. Uie ·making when .the Bruins suddenly found themselves trailing, 10-7, following a shocking f o u r m i n u t e s , midway through (he third quarter. . It all started when Andrusyshyn was forced to punt from behind the Bruin goal line. A low snap -from center sailed Ih rough his legs and bounced oul of the rear of UNSTOPPABLE! Buckeyes Bury «/ »/ Purdue's Hopes COLUMBUS : (UP!)' -There was nothing wrong with" Mike Phipps' slingshot arm Saturday. His legs weren't quick enough and his pass blocking wasn't strong enough to hold off No. 1-ranked Ohio State. x Phipps couldn't avoid the avalanche of Buckeye tacklers and when he did have enough time ; fo fire, five of his passes were intercepted as Ohio State smothered the Boilermakers, 42-14. . , : : ' "They kept 1 us well -covered and Phipps could not get back and stay very long," Purdue coach Jack Mollenkopf .said aftef the game, his worst defeat in 13 seasons at the Boiler-, makers'helm. It wasn't r exactly ideal 'weather for · a passer,.The temperature dipped : to a frigid 23 degrees: throughout much'of.the game. But the Buckeye defense-made it too hot for Phipps. ' In registering, their 22nd consecutive win, ·the-lop- ·ranked Buckeyes tied their own Big Ten record of 17 consecutive league, victories. " · . · . Ohio. State junior quarterback Rex Kern led the rout by scoring on runs of six and one yards,' and passing 38 yards to Bruce Jankowski for ,a third score before a national television audience and 85,027 fans. The loss to Ohio Slate just about buried Purdue's Rose Bowl hopes. It was the second loss for the Boilermakers in Big Ten play. '"Ohio Stale has the most underrated defense in the " c o u n t r y , " Mollenkopf said. "I don't think anyone can beat them. I've never seen a team with everything like this team; "I don't think Michigan has a chance next Satur-, day . . . I don't ^nk anyone does, unless'it was the Minnesota Vikings."

Oregon took the ensuing kick from the UCLA 20 on its own 32 and promptly moved 68 yards for the. -lead touchdown, in eight · plays. Key play was Harrington's 45-yard pass to end Bob Newland on the Bruin one-yard line. After a yard loss, Harrington, subbing for the injured .Tom Blanchard, sneaked two yards for the score, then passed to Alan Pitcaithley for a two-point conversion. The Bruins' finally regrouped in the final two minutes of the third quarter to launch their winning drive from the Oregon 49. Greg Jones picked up 10 yards in two carries; Dennis Dummit then hit George Farmer with a 'clutch 19-yard pass on third down and followed with another 10-yard pitch : to Karmer. Bob Manning carried to the, five-yard line as the quarter ended, and on the second play of the final period : Dummit passed three yards to Gwen Cooper for the touchdown. Just as it looked as if the Bruins might he gaining momentum on another drive midway in the quarter, the. complexion of the game look a sudden and jolting turn. Jini Franklin intercepted Dummit's pass on the Oregon 32 and returned 16 yards to (he 48, from where the Ducks steadily moved into, scoring territory on a drive which seemed certain to end successfully in either a touchdown for a victory or a field goal to : tie. But Carver was walcri- ing Moore, who had 'caught nine passes for 69 yards- up to that point, and he was in front of Oregon's great sophomore.receiver: when Harrington released the football. They went up together, but it was Carver who came down with the ball.

Noting thai the troubled and tormented Huskies were seated high in the balcony at a homecoming show Friday night, Bob Hope couldn't resist the opportunity. "Say," s a i d Hope, "that's the highest you guys have been all year." Hope's- remark was true only at the moment.- ' . Saturday, before a roar-, ing crowd' of 49,000 at Washington Stadium, the " Huskies wore higher than the Space Needle Ihat overlooks the.Seattle araa. . They f i n a l l y were brought back to earth by USC, 16-7, by errors that have befouled -them all season. A Husky fumble provided the Trojans field posi- . lion for a 31-yard field goal by Ron Ayala that put them ahead,-10-7, early in the fourth quarter, and another bobble late in the period led indirectly to USC's second touchdown with 2:01 remaining. "They b l o c k e d us, knocked t'.s down, kicked us and embarrassed us," said Trojan Coach John McKay. But Saturday's game should be tame compared to the ona coming up this week al the Coliseum when the unbealens, USC and UCLA, wage their annual face-scralching duel for the right to represent the Pacific-8 in the Rose Bowl. · They appeared ready to pul the Huskies away early by chewing up 66 yards in 12 plays for a touchdown the first time they got the football. But the headiness of success didn't last long. Washington punched back for a second-quarter touchdown to tie the score at 7-7 and USC lost a touchdown with 1:30 remaining in the half when split end Terry Dekraai fumbled just short of the goal line. The second half was sus- P e n s e f i! 1 until Ayala kicked the field goal that sent USC ahead again. Not only were the Trojans extended in achieving 'their sixth fourth-quarter victory or tie, they also learned their big, mobile defensive line could be punctured for sizeable yardage. USC had yielded an average of 89 yards rushing going into the game and Ihe most it had been given up in a single game (14'J) in the opener at Nebraska.
