' Elorde, who won a 10-round decision from Sandy in a nontitle 10- round bout last July 20 in Manila, will be the eighth champion from foreign countries that Saddler has met in defense of his title. Prefight publicity has made much of the Plash's left - handed stance, which admittedly bothered Saddler In Manila, and the deadly seriousness with which he has trained for $he bout. Only 22 years old to Saddler's admitted 32, Elorde unquestionably will make-a supreme effort to become . the third Filipino in ring history to take a worl dtitle back home. The other two were flyweight Pancho Villa and middleweight Ceferino Garcia. But boxing men Here who have watched 'both fighters point out that Saddler has never lost more than one. fight to any of his 159 professional opponents. They don't think that this time is going to be any different. Saddler lost once to Elorde, they say, and this time he'll have his own answer to the southpaw Filipino.

San Francisco racked up vie lories over Santa Clara and Fresno State last week to run ite two- season w i n n i ny itreak to .88 _ straight games. That equaled the major college record, held by .Long Island University and Setoh Mall Kentucky moved ahead of Vanderbilt into fourth pla.ce In the rankings, Illinois pushed into sixth h»«d nf Temple, the thlrc unbeaten major team, took over eighth and Louisville moved Into the top 10. Apparently . these changes weren't 'just a matter, of wins and losses, for the only displaced team that lost a game was Ohio State, which dropped irom seventh to 1th after being thumped by Iowa early last week. North Carolina State, a one-time loser,, clung to third place, well in front of Kentucky. Illinois' thumping 96-72 victory over Indiana apparently impressed the voters more than Duke's three wins.
