Each team has won only one game this season, but to the Cadets and Midshipmen, a win in their annual battle is as good as unbeaten season because IT is the season. Army and Navy football plavers have been known to rise to big occasions and Nebraska football coach Bob Devaney, making note of that the week before his Huskers met Army Qarly this season, pointed out, "And I'm glad of it." It's obvious what he meant. ABC-TV, which will televise the game Saturday afternoon, recalls that during World War II Chief of Staff Gen. George C.

Marshall once issued a call for a leader for a secret and important mission and designated strongly, "I want a West Point football pr.ver." tups rnx-m wtm Murtaugh, Newton Only Unanimous Picks That Inscription is carried corner of Michie Stadium for all on a to sec. 1st Team Offense E-Otto Stowe, Iowa State, 6-2. 181, Springfield, HI.

Aces Seem To Be Dealt ITU's 1 One Of A Series By TOM HENDERSON Star Sports Writer All the aces appear to be dealt in Ted Owens' direction this season as he prepares his Kansas basketball team tor a run at Kansas State in the Big Eight title chase. Owens returns 10 lettermen, the most in the conference, while losing only one and has the Big Eight's top scorer, Dave Robiscb, back to build around. Robisch averaged 26.5 points per game last year and three other starters off last season's club and one from two years ago also return.

"Our greatest strength is the number of good players we have." Owens says. "There's not a lot of greatness, but quite a number of solid players, mis is the most veteran team we've had in the past three years." Other starters returning are Pierre Russell, who scored at a 13.4 clip, 6-5 Bud Stallworth, who hit 12.7 per game, and Bub Kivisto, 6.7. Roger Brown, who started as a sopnomore, dui was omy a part-time starter last season, is also back and the Jayhawks have picked up added depth to an already big front line with the return of Greg Douglas who has been ineligible for a year and a half. Add Aubrey Nash, a 6-0 guard who hit at a 5.1 paqe in 26 games last year, and the roster appears formidable. But Owens, whose teams have finished second in the Big Eight in each of the past three years, feels attitude may pose a problem.

"Problems come in a number of areas," Owens says. "The biggest will be in the area of developing the kind of attitude that it takes to become a champion. We not only have to overcome the complex of a team that has finished second the last three years, but must do the things that are necessary to finish first. "It's not out of the realm of possibility that we can have this great attitude toward winning. I think we have a chance to win it." Owens continues, "We'll have good depth, some experience and good size.

We don't have much speed in our big men, so when we want speed, we'll have to sacrifice size. We do not possess a lot of great shooters, however, we do have some good shooters and we do have a few good athletes who can play any kind of game." Kan. "I'm out of shape and didn't think I could go three rounds," Griffin grinned after his knockout victory. "So I thought I'd better get it over with as soon as I could." The next Lincoln Boxing Smoker will be held Tuesday, Dec. 15, at the Pershing Auditorium.

pionships at Iowa Slate. Kansas City, Mo. (UPI) -Giant offensive tackle Bob Newton and ferocious linebacker Jerry Murtaugh, both off Nebraska's unbeaten Orange Bowl team, were the only unanimous choices on the 1970 United Press International All-Big Eight Conference football team. Both pulled all 20 votes in a poll of conference sports writers and sportscasters. Colorado center Don Pop-plewell missed being a unanimous choice by a single vote.

All three aire seniors and tiad standout seasons. Nebraska dominated the selections, landing seven first-team performers. Kansas State had five and Colorado' three. Newton, known as "Big Fig' to his teammates, used his 6-4, 248-pound frame to open gaping holes Cornhusker backs all season. Murtaugh was the man coach Bob Devaney rebuilt his defense around and the 212-poundcr twice was named Big Eight Lineman of the Week for his play.

Kansas'john Riggins, who finished with 1.131 rushing yards, led the offensive backs, gathering 18 of the possible 20 votes. Lynn Dickey, the all- time Big Eight passing leader from Kansas State, and Joe Orduna, the best of several standout Nebraska backs, garnered 15 votes. Joe VVylie, Oklahoma's sensational sophomore, rounded out the offensive backfield. The scattered-legged flyer was the only non-senior on the offensive team. He has 879 rushing yards with one game still to play.

Rounding out the offensive team are two wide receivers, Iowa State's Otto Stowe and Oklahoma State's Herman Eben. Opposite Newton at tackle is Missouri's 245-pound Larron Jackson. As a tandem, those two are probably the finest to ever represent the conference. The guards are Colorado's Dennis Havig, a 240-pounder, and Nebraska's i McGhee, a 255-pounder. The defensive team is equally potent.

Behind Murtaugh in the voting were Colorado defensive end Herb Orvis and Kansas State linebacker, Oscar Gibson, who received 18 and 15 votes, respectively. Defensive backs Clarence Scott of Kansas State and Tony Washington of Iowa State also were easy choices, garnering 17 and 16 votes each. Tackle Ron Yankowski of Kansas State also was named on 16 ballots. Both Nebraska and Kansas State landed four players each on the all-conference defensive team. Other first-team choices were Kansas State end Mike Yuhn, Nebraska tackle Dave Walline, Nebraska middle guard Ed Periard, Oklahoma linebacker Steve Aycock and Nebraska back Bill Kosch.

Orvis, Aycock and Kosch a state champion two years ago when he was at Creighton Prep. Jim Pratt, slowed by mononucleosis last year, is back along with George Sefzik who will try to regain the form he showed as a freshman. The sprints are strengthened by the return of junior Mark Majetich. Bob O'Donnell and Spencer Luedke head the sophomore class of returnees. Both placed in the Big Eight meet last year.

Other sophomores who im press Reta are Bill Chadek, Larry Spilker and Greg Lederer Spilker along with junior Bryan Short will handle the diving chores for the Huskers. Plunkett Heisman Winner New York Jim Plunkett, Stanford's record-breaking quarterback who needed government loans the last three years to stay in school but turned down a lucrative pro contract a year ago to help his team win a championship, won the Heisman Trophy Tuesday. Joe Theismann, another quarterback who smashed Notre Dame's total offense record, was runner-up in the voting by 1,059 electors across the country. Plunkett received 510 first-place votes, 285 for second and 129 for third and received 2,229 points on a 3-2-1 basis. Theismann's totals were Trailing in the balloting were Archie Manning, Mississippi quarterback; Steve Worster, Texas fullback; Rex Kern.

Ohio State quarterback; Pat Sullivan, Auburn quarterback; Jack Tatum, Ohio State cornerback; Frnie Jennings, Air Force flanker; Don McCauley, North Carolina halfback, and Lynn Dickey, Kansas State quarterback. For his career, Plunkett completed 530 of 962 passes for 55.1 per cent, 7,544 yards and 52 touchdowns with 47 interceptions and added 343 yards rushing for a total of 7,887. This season, he was 191 of 358 passmg for 53.4 per cent, 2,715 yards and 18 touchdowns with the same number of interceptions. 1935 Jay Berwanger, Chicago 1936- Larry Kelley.

Colorado is the bowl's defending champion, having defeated Alabama 47-33 last year. An opposing team has not yet been picked, but a spokesman for the team selection committee said Liberty Bowl scouts would see games involving Louisiana State, Tulane and Florida this weekend. Colorado has a 6-4 record and crushed Air Force 49-19 last Saturday. Air Force will play Tennessee in the Sugar Bowl. A lack of enough sprinters and depth again looms as the problem area.

However, Reta feels he has better balance this year. Dave Backer and Dave Schmidt head the squad of 18. The class breakdown shows two seniors, four juniors, eight sophomores and four freshmen. Backer, from McCook, is an example of the changing attitude. He was a walk-on athlete and since has proved himself by breaking a school record.

Schmidt holds two school records and will share captain duties along with Backer. Kelly Cook and Dan Fry, who were ineligible last year, look promising in practice. Fry was -OHIO STATE ADVANCES Huskers Still Third In AP; Irish Drop By The Associated Press Quarterback Joe Theismann of Notre Dame finished second to Stanford quarterback Jim Plunkett in the Heisman Trophy voting Tuesday, but that's better than the Fighting Irish did in the Associated Press College football poll. Notre Dame, which just managed to squeak by Louisiana State 3-4 last Saturday, dropped from second place to fourth place in the latest balloting and may have lost any opportunity to create a Cotton Bowl battle between the nation's top two teams. Texas held cnto the No.

1 spot despite a week off but must- earn the Cotton Bowl berth opposite Notre Dame in a headon meeting with Arkansas Dec. 5 for the Southwest Conference title. The Razorbacks are fifth ranked. Taking over the No. 2 spot as Notre Dame slid down the ladder was Ohio State, a 20-9 victor over Michigan, while Nebraska remained third.

Rounding out the top 10 were LSU, Tennessee, Michigan, Arizona State and Missississippi. Texas received 20 first-place votes and 794 points from a panel of 45 sports writers and broadcasters across the country. Ohio State collected 14 firsts and 760 points. Nebraska had 718 points and Notre Dame 676. Ohio State's victory propelled the Buckeyes, who have a Rose Bowl date against Stanford and Plunkett, from fifth place to the runner-up spot after they had started the season in first place.

And LSU's battle against Notre Dame nudged the Tigers up from seventh to sixth. Michigan slipped from fifth to eighth. Arizona State remained ninth. Mississippi jumped from 12th to 10th without playing a game as Air Force dropped out of the top 10. mittcd.

"But I don't think he's any stronger than other fighters I've faced. "I've been spending too much time coaching the other boys when I should have been training." Hill, helped from the ring by several teammates, could offer no comment other than "He's a good fighter." Mike Wilson, a 132-pound fighter for the Lincoln Roberts Boxing Club, scored his second knockout of the season when he TKO'd Stromsburg's Lonnie Erickson, 135, in 1:20 of the second round. Wilson, a former Southeast District Golden Gloves champion, TKO'd John Kreifels, 139, in 1:16 of the second round during his last match at Pershing. Erickson, a brawling type fighter, fell prey to the smooth boxing Wilson who connected on Erickson with a barrage of lefts and rights to stun the southpaw fighter, forcing referee Larry Emery to stop the fight. The fastest TKO of the match was provided by Graig Wicks, 120, of South Sioux City, who caught Steve Humenick, 120, Lincoln Roberts, in :37 of the first round.

But the most decisive knockout of the night came when Dan Griffin, 160, Fairbury, caught up with Rich Olsen, 157, Easterday, in 1:15 of the second. A sudden barrage of punches from the grinning fighter sent Olsen half through the ropes knocked cold. Reta thinks Kansas with its depth and Oklahoma will be the favorites in the Big Eight meet.

By RANDY EICKHOFF Star Sports Writer Three rounds can seem like an eternity in that square-ringed jungle as many boxers well know ask Randy Nelson, the end seems to never come. Nelson, 170, coaching and boxing for the Lincoln Saylor Boxing Club and many-time Southeastern Golden Gloves champion was beaten by Dave Hill, 169, Easterday Boxing Club Tuesday night during the second Lincoln Boxing smoker at Pershing Auditorium. Nelson managed a slight lead over Hill going into the third and final round, but the stocky counter-puncher caught up with Nelson and managed to slip inside the peek-a-boo stance used by Nelson to score solidly with short right hooks time and time again. Several times Nelson's knees buckled, but the veteran ring fighter still managed to come back strong to put the pressure on Hill. But to no avail as the rapidly tiring Hill lasted through the round to take the victory.

"He stunned me," Nelson ad- Dodgers Tap Basgall Albuquerque, N.M. UP The Albuquerque Dodgers announced Tuesday that Monty Basgall, 48, a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers and former Lincoln Chiefs manager, will be field manager for the Albuquerque club of the Texas League in 1971. Tom Heuke of Lincoln avid Randy Stoike of Austin, Minn. are state champions from their respective states beading the freshmen crop. Jay Yost, whom Reta describes as physically small but full of determination, and Gene Davis are the other freshmen.

Among the changes for Nebraska are new training techniques instilled by Reta. "We have been doing a lot of marathon swimming," Reta said. "I have the fellas swim a certain distance in a set time. We try to improve on technl ques, style and endurance. "Marathon swimming also helps a swimmer to distribute his energy more evenly and he gets a better understanding of pace.
