Since the Sooncrs have won 51 straight in the conference, Iowa State's hopes are forlorn at best. An Oklahoma victory, coupled with a Nebraska defeat by Colorado, will give the Sooners the conference title. Nebraska now Is tied with Oklahoma for the league lead at 4-0, but even if they bent Colorado today nnd the Sooncrs next week, the Cornhuskers can't go to Miami. Maryland Seeks Assurance Maryland, the No. 2 team behind Oklahoma in The Associated Press football poll, had a date with Clemson, and a victory would assure the Terps of at least a tie for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship. The AAC, like the Big Seven, has a contract with the Orange Bowl. The Rose Bowl could be half filled If Michigan State got past Minnesota and Indiana upset Michigan. Tills would automatically send the Spartans westward with a 5-1 league record. The best the Wolverines could do then would be 5-2, even if they beat Ohio State next week.
