LOUIS W>y—Missouri Valley football fans couldn't ask for a better conference curtain raiser than this week's matching of two unbeaten teams — sophomoric but game Wichita and title favorite Oklahoma A&M. The Wheatshockers were supposed to have too many sophomores and not enough weight this year to beat Houston and the Oklahoma Aggies. But Coach Jack Mitchell's rookie sparked backfield and mobile, spirited line have scored 155 points in three games to make Valley fans wonder how good they are. Wichita's victims were Drake, Utah State and Emporla, Kan. State Teachers, admftedly below the level of conference play. Ears' Aggies Tie The Aggies, loaded in their fifth year under Jennnigs Bryan Whitworth, lived up to predictions eve without starting quarterback Fred Meyers .injured in the first game. This is their fourth straight road mc. Texas Tech, Gator Bowl and Border Conference champion needed a iutc drive last week to tie the Ag- gies. 13-13. In other games, Houston comes back from a two-week layoff to meet Texas A&M, which upset ieorgia last week, and Tulsa faces potent Alabama. Detroit has an open date. If their foes ever doubted they could pass after the Aggies threw only five and completed zero in their first two games, those doubts vanished at Texas Tech. Led by sophomore quarterback Fred Duval, they connected on 7 of 12 passes for 143 yards and one touchdown. Wichita's biggest problem will be the two-unit A&M line. The first wave has seven lettermen, the second four veterans and two sophomores. First Down, tost $/20 HOUSTON, Tex.
