Rnr. Lincoln Journal & Star Friday, Sept. 23, 1988 21 . - . - " Sun Devils' safety sees pivotal game By Ken Hambleton Arizona State was picked to finish in the bottom half of the Pac 10. That's like a slap in the face for the 2- 0 Sun Devils. Larry Marmle was named the new coach in January, replacing John Cooper, who went to Ohio State. Eleven of the top Sun Devils from last year's 841 team completed their eligibility, and prospects appeared dim for this season, according to pre-season magazines. "That's fine because I think we're going to be just as good or better," senior safety Robby Boyd said. "We -may not have the reputation, but we can certainly go get it. And with Coach Marmie and his heavy work ethic, I think well be ' a lot tougher than we were in the past," The one way to spot whether Arizona State is going to make it beyond expectations this year is to take note of the outcome of the Sun Devils' game against Nebraska. "That game broke us last year," Boyd said. "It'll make or break us this year, tOO. '; "We were considered a top ten team, and they were considered top five last year. It was on national television with a lot of press and a lot of buildup and a lot of pressure on everybody involved. I think it was the biggest game I've ever played in and one of the best games we've ever played." Arizona State rallied to tie the game at 28 with 4:55 remaining. But Nebraska broke on top when Keith Jones raced 62 yards to set up the winning touchdown, a 3- yard run by quarterback Steve Taylor. Less than a minute later, NU linebacker Steve Forch intercepted a pass to save the 35-28 victory. ; "We all thought it was a great game; only we lost," Boyd said.

FALL SPECIALS 42M802 sophomore year and bigger than any game we've played since I've been here. - "We went in with fear of the Nebraska reputation and all their big names like Taylor the best quarterback I've ever seen and Broderick Thomas and all those other guys, We overcame the fear, but we still lost, and we never got it all back together the rest of the season." Saturday's game should be just as pivotal, Boyd said. . "You learn to measure yourself against the greats, and Nebraska is it," . Boyd sail Boyd, along with free safety Nathan LaDuke and linebackers Mark Tingstad and Drew Metcalf were the building blocks for the ASU defense this year. The offense revolves around quarterback Daniel Ford, who was granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA. ' "We dont need to get respect we dont earn," Boyd said. "If we live up to what Coach Marmie asks from us, well be a very good team." . Boyd said he, the cornerbacks, and the linebackers will be asked to fill a lot of the gaps by a more free-wheeling approach to pass coverage and run support. . "We're going to be expected to make the big play," he said. "Last year, it was more of getting the guy down, knocking the ball away and preventing things from happening. This year, Ml be more making things happen. x . "We wont just respond to the situation in the somewhat conservative way we did last year, but well be flying around the field trying to disrupt everything." Adjusting to Marmie's methods as head coach haven't taken much time because Marmie was the defensive coordinator under Cooper. J 52 Sept. 24 Oct. 1 Oct. 8 Oct. 15 Oct. 22 Oct. 29 Nov. 5.

Big Red Double Option Sooners seek revenge in Southern Cal test ByHerschelNlssenson ' - AaaodatedPrctt The Pac-10 settled a score with the Big Eight earlier this month when UCLA trounced Nebraska 41-28. Now, the shoe is on the other foot Third-ranked Oklahoma visits No. 5 Southern Cal on Saturday, having dropped the last two meetings with the Trojans. In 1981, No. 1-ranked USC beat the visiting No. 2 Sooners 28-24 on a 7-yard touchdown pass with two seconds to play. The following year in Norman, Southern Cal's 12-0 victory snapped Oklahoma's record scoring streak at 181 games. In fact, the Sooners' potent wishbone was limited to 43 rushing yards that day, and Oklahoma has scored only 7 points in the last six quarters against USC. In addition, a 7-7 tie in 1973, Barry Switzert first season as Oklahoma's head coach, was the only blot on the Sooners 10-0-1 season. , "This is a big game for national prestige," USC Coach Larry Smith said "Both teams have been looking forward to it for a long time. ' The national champion hasn't come from the West Coast since USC in 1972. Will this be the year? Oklahoma is a 1-point favorite. The pick is . . . Southern Cal 21-17.

Texas A&M at No. 18 Oklahoma State Ham hocks Big Eight games By Ken Hambleton (Picks In boldface) Arizona State at Nebraska (-18) The Las Vegas lines make this a bigger spread, but Cornhuskers may become bored and put in the reserves by the third quarter, making this a closer game. ASU is not the ASU of a year ago, and the game shouldn't be that close. Only a hot hand by ASU QB Daniel Ford con change this outcome. Oklahoma at Southern Cal (-1) Oklahoma's Barry Switzer Is 0-2-1 against USC and the Sooners' only stumbling blocks in the past have been against good passers. USC has a great one with Rodney Peete. The Sooners have plenty, but this could be the second big fall for the Big Eight in Los Angeles this year. Also OU QBs Jamelle Holie-way and Charles Thompson were banged up In win over Arizona last week. Indiana (-7) at Missouri Missouri bounced back from season-opening win over Utah State with a miserable loss to Houston last week. Indiana may be the best the Big Ten has to offer this year. Tigers have yet to prove they can throw the ball and have yet to prove they can stop the pass, too. All six MU touchdowns have been by runs, and all seven touchdowns by MU foes have been on passes. Iowa State at Iowa (-21) Iowa Is going to have to feed on wins over Kansas State ond Iowa State after losses to Hawaii and Colorado. The Cyclones didnt even get a field goal from Jeff Shudak last week the first time in his career he hasn't had at least one. Iowa should be hungry to gain this annual win but may not have enough horses to run up the score. Texas A&M at Oklahoma State (-7) Nebraska breezed past A&M, then LSU blew the Aggies away, then the threat of Gilbert tornadoed A&M's scheduled game with Alabama last week. This is o big game for recruiting rights In Texas and for OSU to prove it's In the same league with Nebraska. Look for OSU QB Mike Gundy and RB Barry Sanders to tear up a lot of territory, but also watch for A&M to bounce back from slow start Sports Report Top 25 Team (record) Rating Pvs. 1. Miami, Fla.

Oregon State at Colorado (-11) This Is the kind of gome Colorado used to lose -with regularity, but maybe the Buffs have changed and are actually thinking about being a top 20 team this year. CU defense appears to be solid, and RB Eric Bleniemy may be one of best in the Big Eight. Beavers are 2-1 but should be no threat. Kansas at California (-13) Kansas Is awful. New coach Glen Mason said after 56-7 loss to Auburn, "I've never been whipped like that before. That's the worst I've been beaten except when my wife beat my butt in bridge." Maybe Mason's wife and her bridge club would have a better chance against Cal. Ham Hocks are 12-5 against his spread this year and 14-3 in picking the winners. Last week, the Hocks were 4-2 against the spread, losing on picks of Missouri over Baylor and Iowa over Colorado. But the spread was within one point on the K-State-Tulane and Oklahoma-Arizona games.
