The Chicks go into the game with the Wildcats seeking victory number eight for the season It will be the fourth encounter with a Bigj Eight foe this year. Only loss dealt the Chicks was from Pine Bluff, 18-7. The Chicks are in for a re-emphasis of fundamental blocking, tackling and running this week, according to head Coach Russell Mosley, who was not entirely pleased with last week's showing of the Tribe, despite its 46-7 conquest of Newport. "We seem to be getting in worse shape than we were earlier," Mosley said, indicating that the squad would do a lot of running this week. El Dorado with a big, fast squad is looked upon by the conches as equal or better than Pine Blnf.

It was announced yesterday that ace fullback Moore, who suffered a chest injury in the Porks' 6-0 victory over Southern Methodist last week, would recover In time to play. Coach Jack Mitchell said that the Rarorbacks had no other serious injuries. The team went through a 45-minute drill and then watched movies of the Southern Methodist game. Offensive timing and pass defense drills were scheduled today. The LSU Tigers worked till after dark in a long, no-contact session. LSU surprised with a 34-7 victory over Mississippi State last week. It was only the second victory for th; Tigers. On the .shoulders of the downtrodden, cellar-dwelling Rice Owls this Saturday rides the hopes and slim mathematical chances of the Razorbacks that they, and not the Texa* Christian Frogs, will wind up in the Cotton Bowl. The Christians, one 01 the loop's leading powerhouses, are favorites Ut bag the Owls and sew up second place which this year will be good for the host's job m the Cotton Bowl. Arkansas, with a 3-2-1 record, has finished its conference play. .The Porkers can now only hope that all second place contenders fall flat on their faces between now nnd season's finish to end up with a flock of 3-3 records. The Texas Aggies who appear to be heading for the championship will have an inactive role U they become conference kings. They have been barred from playing the Cotton Bowl because of recruiting violations. The Frogs Monday had a short non-pud drill nnd heard Line Coach Allie White, who watched Rice against A&M. praise the Owls as "a line ball club, one that is tough defensivel y."

The- Baylor Bears, who tangle with the Southern Methodist Mustangs at Waco Saturday, worked out until dark Monday with Couch George Saner scrimmaging his charges long and hard on pass plays.

Last week Earle took its second win of the season by pounding the helpless Shawnee Indians, 69-6, in the lone conference game. Osceola trimmed Paragould 27-7, as the Seminoles gave the district 3A co-leaders a sound football lesson. Burdette took a 20-6 trouncing from Portageville. championship. Both learns have won five conference games without a loss, but while Nebraska has lost its four outside games, the Sooners have also defeated Pittsburgh, Texas and North Carolina. Nebraska, once the scourge of the league, hasn't been able to defeat the Sooners in 12 years, but that's one of tlie things that worries Wilkinson. In fact, no conference team has taken the measure of Oklahoma since Kansas turned the trick In 19-16—or 53 league gtimes ago. Bud Tries Explanation The tall Oklahoma mentor tried to explain the possibilities for the "big upset": "I don't recall a game in the time I've been it Oklahoma when all the factors are so in favor of a team like they are for Nebraska" to upset the Sooners. Wilkinson pointed out that Nebraska started the season with a barrage of criticism after a humiliating 6-0 setback to Hawaii in the first game. "But the players and the coaches had enough organization to come back and make themselves into a whale of a football team." Wilkinson saUi. "It's a tremendous week. Wilkinson didn't go into too much detail on. what factors are in favor of Nebraska shooting down the Sooners. But, apparently he must be pondering these conditions: 1. Oklahoma Is the No. 1 team in the tuition and therefore a prime target. 2. His powerful Learn has the Orange Bowl trip all locked up and may be looking ahead to Jan. 2 nnd an engagement with Maryland. Quick Blow May Win 3. With one quick blow Nebraska could end Oklahoma's seven-year monopoly on the league crown. 4. The Cornhuskers can be '"loose" since they have nothing to lose—except the game itself. 5. Playing at home f-an't hurt the Nebraskans, either. Of course, it should be borne in mind that Wilkinson is a leading member of the "conche's crying towel club" because of his constant pessimism. "I know when a coach says it's going to be a tough game, everyone adopts a tongue-in-cheek attitude and just smiles," Wilkinson explained after developing hjs "big upset" theory.
