SUNDAY NEWS AMP TRIBUN^ JETFERSOM CITY. M1SSQUM Underdog Missouri Tigers Shock Kansas 10-7 Br TOM MUSE LAWRENCE, Kan. (Special)--"I'm scared to death of their defense. A field goal could win it--and I don't think we'll score but once." These prophetic words uttered Wednesday by Kansas Football Coach Jack Mitchell, came back to haunt him Saturday afternoon as his heavily favored Jayhawks suffered a shocking 10-7 upset at the hands of a fired-up band of never-say-die Missouri Tigers before a capacity crowd in KU's Memorial Stadium. Determined Mizzou, rated a two-touchdown underdog, gave the Kansans a cheap touchdown early in the first quarter, then proceeded to completely bottle up the vaunted Kansas offense the rest of the afternoon. The victory gave Missouri a tie with Kansas in the final Big Eight Conference standings, each with 5-2 recordsl Missouri finished the year with seven wins, two losses and a tie. In winning, Missouri boosted its chances for a third straight bowl appearance and handed the conference title and an Orange Bowl bid to the Colorado Buffaloes. Tobin Sole Scorer Bill Tobin, 195-pound, junior from Maryville, Mo., accounted for all of Missouri's 10 points, kicking a 27-yard field goal and driving over for a touchdown. Missouri, in winning, avengeod its 23-7 loss to Kansas that came in last year's finale when the Tigers were ranked the nation's No. 1 football team. So complete was Kansas' frustration after the half that All+ * * * * * America candidates Curtis McClinton and John Hadl were held to minus yardage. Defense Hold* Time and again, Missouri's rock-ribbed defense, led by Paul Henley, Bucky Wegener, Paul Garvis and ex-Jayhawk Gene Oliver broke throw Hadl and his backfield mates for sizeable losses. Especially harrassing was Oliver who threw Hadl for key 9 and 7-yard losses when the Kansas quarterback was attempting to pull the game out of the fire with passes in the final period. MU heroes were a dime a dozen in the magnificent team effort but certainly Quarterback Ron Taylor should step front and center when the plaudits are passed out. Entering the game early in the second period, the gritty little field general, still obviously bothered by a sprained ankle, revved up Missouri's sputtering attack and directed the Tigers in near flawless fashion the rest of the way. Underbill Stars Unheralded fullback Paul Underbill was another standout. A third-stringer before the game, the 202-pound sophomore wound up as his team's top ground gainer with 78 yards in 17 carries. Never able to move the ball with any degree of consistency against either of Missouri's two tremendous lines, the Kansans capitalized on a mishandled Tiger pitchout for their touchdown. Following an exchange of punts at the outset of the first quarter, Missouri had the ball first and 10 on their own 22 when halfback Vince Turner let go of a Jim Johnson pitchout: Larry Lause fell on the stray pigskin at the 15 and the Hawks were able * * if * * * to et on the Scoreboard six plays later with Fullback Ken Cokman barfing over from the 1. With 6:5» left in the period, Wally Barnes converted to make it 7-0. Tlcei* Storm Back The aroused Bengals came storminj back, marching 49 yards before fumbling the ball away again on the Kansas 33. Gaining possession on their own 44 when a KU fourth down gamble failed, the Missourians drove down to the Kansas » before their offense was blunted. At this point, Bill Tobin booted a 27-yard field goal--and his cohorts were well on the way to one of the most astonishing upsets of the long and colorful history of the bitterly fought series. Mizzou started its march to the winning touchdown after a Hadl punt with 5:07 left in the third quarter. With Taylor mixing his plays beautifully, the Tigers covered the 80 yards to paydirt in 13 plays. Taylor Connects Taylor connected on three passes, good for 46 yards, to keep the drive moving. From the 3, the clever signal-caller faked to fullback Andy. Russell up the middle, then pitched out to Tobin for the score. His conversion made it 10-7 Missouri with 14:02 left on the clock. -Still not through, the Tigers theratened again after taking the ball following an exchange of punts. A 31-yard punt runback ignited the surge. It ended when Taylor fumbled the ball away on the Kansas 8 with 5:31 remaining. t The Hawks weren't able to advance the pigskin end Tony Liekar quick-kicked the ball 67 yards to Missouri's 23. Two plays later, Larry Allee grabbed rtijl another Tfcee fumble on the 24- but the Misaourius held'and Taylor killed the dock with two wwaks into the line. Kansas lost a scoring opportunity in the second quarter when a bad Hadl pitchout was recovered on the Missouri 20 by Sophomore end John Sevcik. II First Downs Missouri knocked out 16 first downs to Kansas' 9 and outlined the Jayhawks, 175 yards to 1». Taylor completed 3 of 3 passe* for 46 yards as the lifers led in passing 58 yards to 28. Ken Coleman, Kansas' strong sophomore fullback, picked up '81 yards on 11 carries. One was a 49-yard trip to the Missouri 15 in the JayhaWk second quarter threat that ended -with a lost fumble. . Good defensive play of sophomore end George Seals and Sevcik also played an important factor in the game. Conrad Hitchler, the Tiger's regular right end, didn't play because of a broken leg and regular left end Don Wainwright made only a token appearance. Another hero in the Tiger victory was Jim Johnson, a southpaw quarter back who started in place of Taylor and played a terrific offensive game. · Missouri Q 3 0 7--10 Kansas. 7 o 0 0 -- 7 KU--Coleman 1 run (Barnes kick) MU--FG Tobin 27 MU--Tobin ) run (Tobin kick) Attendance: 40,500. Cheer Coach, Teammates Great Upset of Traditional Foe Leaves Tigers Rioting With Joy LAWRENCE, Kan. :(AP)-"We just played like hell; the kids played .their guts out," chuckled Missouri football Coach Dan Devine following his Tiger's upset 10-7 victory over the Kansas Jay- hawks'Saturday. '·' ; In a near fantastic back-slapping session - in their dressing room, the Tigers cheered their 'coach, their teammates and even newsmen who crowded in the quarters to pop questions. One of the Tigers'--"unavail- ables" ; who came to play, small- sized quarterback Ron Taylor, Summed; up the victory this way: 'Charm': "Our coaches picked out things that ·., were going good and we .stuck to them. Our "Underbill Special* worked like .a charm." Paul Underbill, a third string fullback, racked up 78 yards on 17 rushes,. "Our guys up front told me we could power them out of there and that's what they did," Taylor added. "We knew we could throw the hook and outpass against them and we got off a couple of dandies." Desire Key Ed Blaine, Missouri standout tackle, echoed the sentiment of the team with: "We pust wanted this -one real bad and we got it." Devine said he though the key "When Kansas scored we didn't lose heart," Devine said. "We played very well with the exception of a couple of mistakes (fumbles) and it was a very good football game." Devine said the outstanding play of John Sevcik and George Seales, sophomore ends converted from tackles, and Gene Oliver, a center who was shifted to end only last Monday after injuries felled his starters, contributed greatly to the upset. Kansas Quiet Things were exceptionally quiet over in the Kansas dressing room. Coach Jack Mitchell commented: "We just did a poor job offensively. We couldn't throw. That Missouri team played it hard all the way." --Said-Kansas-backfield_aces_J_ohn Hadl and Curtis McClinton: "It is obvious that Missouri simply whipped us." A '30-yard runback ty Vince Turner of a Hadl punt in the fourth period also was a big factor in the outcome, Mitchell said. The Tigers didn't score again but the long run and hard running by Underbill and Tobin pushed the Jayhawks back to their 8, where a fumble killed the drive. Spikes Rumor Devine took time out to spike a rumor that he may become head coach at Notre Dame. "I haven't been offered a job at Notre Dame and I wouldn't leave Missouri anyway," he said. "I have a real hard job in Missouri but I like it. My answer to anyone offering me a job now ·would have to be no. "I know Dr. Ellis (Elmer Ellis, M.U. president) would not break his word to me and I wouldn't break my word to him." There have been reports that Joe Kuharich will leave the Notre Dame helm, returning to pro football, either with the Chicago Bears or Los Angeles Rams.

(AP) - Okla homa's late - blooming Sooners stormed- from behind in the sec ond half Saturday to conquer Nebraska 21-14 in a battle of Big 'Eight conference also-rans.'

Fired Up So fired up were the Sooners after the halftime rest they took: only three plays to cover 70 yards, with Bob Page's 30-yard toss to; end Ronny Payne scoring the touchdown. A short punt put Oklahoma in position for a 33-yard march after! an ensuing exchange of punts and Jimmy Carpenter skirted right end from nine yards out to score. George Jarman's second conversion kick put the teams all-even at 14-14. Starting from their two after a booming punt by Claridge, Oklahoma ground out short but steady gains and Carpenter scored on a one-yard run with five minutes of game time remaining. STILLWATER,.

(AP) - The Bowl situation for the Big Eight' Missouri and Kansas was still muddled today as the Colorado Buffaloes won the league' cham pionship and a trip to meet Louisi ana State in the Orange Bowl. Kansas, with an impressive six game winning streak before Mis souri lowered the axe 10-7 Satur day, had hoped for the invitation to Miami despite a 20-19 loss to the Buffaloes. Missouri, which blasted the Jay hawks' dream, had had a faint hope of getting the bid, too, for the third straight year. Kansas has been invited to play in the Gotham Bowl in New York City Dec. 9, along with Penn State, but Coach -Jack Mitchel; said after his team's defeat "1 doubt if we will go to any bowl." He said the Jayhawks, tenth ranked nationally, have a couple of other chances to play in bowls. Kansas has had feelers from the Bluebonnet at Houston and the Liberty Bowl in Philadelphia, both on Dec. 16. No decision will be announced before Monday, Kansas officials said. : Missouri, which finished the league season tied with Kansas at 5-2, also has had contacts with the Gotham, Liberty and Bluebonnet bowls, Athletic Director Don Faurot said. "We would welcome the opportunity to play a major team in any of the three," he added. The executive director of the Gotham Bowl, Robert Curran, attended Saturday's game and said that the invitation to Kansas would stand. Argentine was an 11-5 favorite.

Alabama's appearance in the sugar Bowl is all but assured. Crimson Tide players have voted to accept a Sugar Bowl bid if: one is extended, and officials of the bowl have said they'll.go all out to get the Crimson Tide, No. 1 team in the nation.' A brutal Arkansas defense allowed Tech inside Arkansas territory only twice. Arkansas quarterback George McKinney scored from the' one after a 64-yard first quarter drive. He passed seven yards to end Jim John to cap a 62-yard push in the second period. In the fourth quarter, Arkansas drove 56 yards and halfback Lance Alworth spurted the last 12.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Gotham Bowl officials announced Saturday, they had invited Kansas and Penn · State-to play in their post season football game at the Polo Grounds Dec. 9. Penn State, which ended Its season against Pitt today, was reported receptive to the bid by Bill Stein, chairman of the Gotham group that was reorganized after the bowl was unable to find two suitable opponents for its inaugural game last year. Kansas, which ended its regular season against Missouri, has been guaranteed a minimum of $75,000 for the New York appearance, according to another Gotham official, Bob Curran, who was in Lawrence, Kan., to see the Missouri-Kansas game. Apparently a similar guarantee was made to Penn State by Stein. The offer. Stein said, was a substantial one. He said it appeared the National Broadcasting Company 'was willing to televise the game provided Penn State accepted and a worthy opponent was selected. In Lawrence, Athletic Director Don Faurot of Missouri : said the Tigers have had. contacts from the Gotham, as well as the Liberty and Bluebonnet bowls. The latter two also, have been eyeing Kansas, along with the Orange Bowl com- , jmittee in Miami, which takes a : 'representative Big Eight Conference team--not necessarily the champion--for one of its berths each year. · · The Big .Eight, of which both Kansas and Missouri are mem- ^ bers, cleared the way ; for other bowl .appearances than the Orange Bowl this week, providing they do not conflict with the Jan. -1 ; date.
