If that's the case, then several of the nation's leading college football powers, including Marylam and West Virginia, had better be on their toc-s tomorrow. Nol that Clemson, which wil face the Terps, and Pittsburgh, which takes on WVU, are I'alr-to- middlin' clubs. They're a lot bet ter than trfat. It's just that there's a lot at stake In both games and maybe a little of the whoop and holler will spur the underdogs. Maryland, the nation's second- ranked team, is heavily favored to move further along the Orange Bowl rond. Clemson Ready , Word from the South Carolina school, however, is that it is ready to spring a surprise and knock Maryland from the ranks of the unbeaten. Each team is 3-0 in Atlantic Coast Conference play. Pittsburgh stands smack in the way of a possible Sugar Bowl bid for West Virginia, which is No. 6 in the country and already has won the Southern Conference title. Should West Virginia win this one, an invitation to New Orleans may be in the mail next week. Besides Maryland and West Virginia, other teams playing important games <n the road are Yale, Duke, Texas Christian, Notre Dame, Auburn p.nd Oregon State. Yale, on the strength of its surprise victory over Army, is favored to knock off Princeton and clinch the Ivy League crown. Duke, though beaten twice and tied in nonconference play, still will have a shot at the ACC crown and the Orange Bowl bid if it can get by South Carolina and Clemson trips Maryland. Decisive SWC Battle Texas Christian meets Texas in a game which will go a long .ways in deciding the- Southwest Conference winner. Texas A&M leads the league, but it's ineligible for postseason action. The Aggies ploy Rice tomorrow. With three straight victories since being upset by Michigan State, Notre Dame is rated about a four-touchdown favorite over North Carolina. The Tarheels, how ever, showed improved form in thumping South Carolina last week. In the Southeastern Conference, first-place Mississippi goes outside the conference to take on Houston But Auburn, in second place, must beat Georgia Tech to remain in contention. Ole Miss is 4-1 in loop action while Auburn is 3-1-1. On the West Const, UCLA, playing at home, figures to stay on lop of the PCC by beating Washington. Oregon State, the runnerup, meets California. The league records here are UCLA 4-0 and State 4-1. Sooners a Cinch Oklahoma, the No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll, looks like a cinch against Iowa State. Ohio State, Michigan and Michi gan State, the Big Ten powers, all will he at home, the Buckeye against Iowa, Michigan against In diana and the Spartans, the coun try's No. 3 team, against Minne sola.

Would-BeChamp Costa Battles Lopes in TV Bout By JACK HAND NEW YORK I/Pi — If CarmclO Costa could punch, he might be the featherweight champion of the world. Instead of fighting; for Hie title, the flashy Brooklyn boxer takes on Joey Lopes, Ihe No. 8 lightweight, tonight at Madison Square Garden in a rematch of of their March 18 bout. Ranked No. 4 among the 120- pounders, the slick Costa owns a classy left and trigger-fast hands. Instead of forcing a match with champion Sandy Saddler, who is overdue for a defense, Costa has been standing still despite an elimination victory over Lulu Perez and two decisions over Bobby Bell. Facts Tel! Story The bare tacts tell the story. Costa, 21, has lost only twice in 33 pro starts for a 27-2-4 record. He never has been knocked out. The catch is that he has knocked out only three. In fact, he had to go hard In the 10th round to pull out a split decision over Bell, one oi his conquerors, in his last start, Sept. 2. Bell and Rudy Garcia both outpointed Costa late in 1954. Saddler hasn't put his crown on the line since Feb. 25 when he thumped Red Top Davis in 15 rounds. He lost to Lopes in an over-the-weight match at Sacramento, May 24 and was beaten by Flash Elorde at Manila July 20. Elorde was to have met Costa but Lopes was given the match. There was talk by the International Boxing Club thr.t Flash wanted more time to get ready. Costa took Lopes on a unanimous decision eight months ago.
