The result was the same as the Jayhawks managed just 79 total yards in the 42-0 blanking by the Cornhuskers. Here KU's Harry Weaver PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ask Earl Weaver about The Book, and the Baltimore manager, one of baseball's master ' strategists, laughs. never read The Book," confessed ' Weaver Saturday after making some pinch-hitting chess moves that produced a pair of two-run doubles by John Lowen-stein and Terry Crowley as the Orioles had their third big inning of the World Series and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-6. The Orioles took a 3-1 lead in the best-. of-seven Series. The victory left them one victory away from their third baseball championship.

So he summoned Lowenstein first and then Crowley, and both moves paid off. Weaver was asked for a word to describe the two utility men and agreed that "journeymen" fit. "I've had 87 pinch hits in my career," said Crowley. "It doesn't disappoint me to be called journeyman." Lowenstein also shrugged off the tag.

Jones, a one-handed touchdown catch by tight end Steve Hall and a swarming defense that shut down the nation's No. 1 scoring machine carried fifth-ranked Texas to a 16-7 victory over the third-rated Oklahoma Sooners Saturday. Texas' NCAA leading defense kept pressure on the dangerous Sooners all afternoon and Longhorns kicker John Goodson contributed three field goals to knock the Sooners out of the unbeaten ranks. Both sides scored after an enemy mistake in the first half, but the Longhorns clung to a 10-7 halftime lead and then left --''WW t- w k Sydney (24) is hit high by Oudious Lee (63) during first half action. Kansas ground against the Huskers. lifts Orioles, 9-6 help the ballclub," he said. On the bench, the Orioles' left-handed contingent could see how the game was developing. Crowley discussed it in the third inning with Lowenstein. "I can see it now," he told his teammates. "You, me and (Pat) Kelly against Tekulve. One of us is going to have to win it." Weaver had the same idea. "We had those left-handed hitters sitting there throughout the game," he said. "It gives us a shot. Tekulve's eaten our right-handers up. Our left-handers were our best bet.

It was only the second victory in the past nine years for Texas In this 74-year-old series and the decision boosted the Longhorns to 4-0 for the season. Oklahoma, which fell to 4-1, had a six-game winning streak broken. Oklahoma managed only two first downs in the first half and one of those came on an 11-yard scoring pass from J.C. Watts to Stanley Wilson, That touch STAFF COLORPHOTO BY RANDY HAMPTON (65) and low by David Clark gained just 20 yards on the with the guys you want sitting there." When Weaver fired that gun, it produced another big inning for the Birds. The Orioles have scored their runs in bunches in this Series. They had a five-run burst in the first inning of Game 1, which they won 5-4. And they scored five more in the fourth inning of Game 3, which they won 8-4. Just how good a strategist is Weaver? Well, after Lowenstein and Crowley delivered their doubles to put Baltimore in front, Weaver passed up another SERIES: Continued page 3D down came after Texas' Johnny Johnson had fumbled away a punt at his own 16 and the score gave the Sooners a 7-3 lead. But late in the first half, Texas defensive back Derrick Hatchett intercepted a pass by Watts and ran it back 36 yards to the Oklahoma 5, from where the Longhorns scored the go-ahead touchdown in three plays. On a third-and-two situation, quarterback Donnie Little lofted a pass toward Hall, one of two Oklahomans on the Texas roster, deep in the end zone. The ball floated over Hall's head, but he leaped up, extended his left arm as high as he could and dragged in the pass for the score. Goodson opened the scoring with a 37-yard field goal in the first quarter and clinched the game in the final period with field goals of 23 and 38 yards.

Nebraska's 42-0 victory was by the exact same margin as kst year's triumph in Lawrence (63-21). And Johnson, who is surely the best third-string running back in the nation, had another fantastic afternoon against the Jayhawks. The Omaha junior can be excused for not quite duplicating his yardage output of a year ago, when he touched the ball just 11 times while gaining 270 yards (10 carries for 192 and one pass reception for 78 more). But this time Johnson set a school record by dashing 94 yards for one of his two touchdowns to produce the final score on the last play of the third quarter. The longest previous run from scrimmage by a Cornhusker was by John Edwards (84 yards) against Oregon State back in 1954 before Johnson was born. "Craig never ceases to amaze me," Husker head man Tom Osborne said of Johnson, who Saturday totaled 138 yards on nine carries. "His fastest 40-yard dash time is :04.6. That's not slow, but it's far from our fastest.

(L'Pl) - Reserve quarterback John Doerner passed for two second half touchdowns Saturday to lift Oklahoma State to a 14-13 upset over lath-ranked Missouri in the Big Eight opener for both teams. Doerner, a sophomore who entered the game on Oklahoma State's third series when starter Harold Bailey suffered a stomach injury, hit 8 of 17 passes. Terry Suellentrop, who was moved to a defensive end spot before the start of the season, returned to the backfield and -gained a career high 152 yards on 22 carries, including 144 during the Cowboys' second half rally.

And Redwine was never in the game after Johnson relieved him midway through the third quarter. I.M. Hipp, the second Husker I-back to see action, has needed just 59 yards (or the past two weeks to become Nebraska's alltime career rushing leader. A badly sprained big toe kept him on the sidelines a week ago. Against Kansas, Hipp earned just six times for 19 net yards before he aggravated the same injury. Now he needs 40. The Cornhuskers entered the game as the nation's total offense leader with a 483.5 per game average. They totaled 611 against the Jayhawks, pushing the average to an even 509 per game. Despite such impressive statistics, Osborne saved his greatest praise for Nebraska's defensive unit. "That's their second straight shutout (coupled with a 57-0 blanking of New Mexico Slate last week)," he said of the Black Shirts.
