PAGE TEH BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1998 Gator Bowl Still Lacks Teams i % * >/. ***# Other Four Major Games Set By KI) WILKS The Associated Press The bowl picture was four fifths complete today, chock full of veteran postseason performers, while the abstainers and the lesser lights of college football socked away their equipment until next season. . . . .... . . , , ,. Only the Gator Bowl, among the five major attractions, is without a pairing. And the selectors are expected to make their move today, with Auburn and Tennessee leading the rumor list. « Except for the Hose and Orange bowls, whose programs are printed according to championship results in the Pacific Coast-Big Ten and Bm Seven-Atlantic Coast conferences, the other bowl selections were completed after Saturday's games. Here's the way they look: Rose (Pasadena, Calif.)—UCLA (8-1) vs. Michigan State (8-1). Orange (Miami. Fla.) — Oklahoma (10-0) vs. Maryland (10-0). Cotton (Dallas)—Texas Christian (9-1) vs. Mississippi (9-1). Sugar (New Orleans)—Georgia Tech (8-1-1) vs. Pitt (7-3). All four are set for Jan. 2. Tile Gator Bowl is scheduled Dec. 31. Of the four completed bowls, six of the eigiit teams are among the top 10 in the Associated Press poll. The Orange Bowl has the cream of the crop, with first-ranked Oklahoma and third-ranked Maryland. With tomorrow's final poll, the 20. Orange Bowl could very well claim the national champion in its buildup campaign. The Oklahoma Soon- ers, No. 1 for three weeks, were favored to top the final list, ending their regular season with 29 straight victories in a whopping 53-0 decision over Oklahoma A&M ARKANSAS OUTDOORS \A * Vkansas Game t Rsh Cbmmfssion LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas' outlook for a successful quail season opening on Thursday, December 1st, is more optimistic than it has been in four years. Game and Fish Commission Director T. A. McAmis said that better growing seasons and an increase fn food and cover had fa- .vored quail production over the entire state. Reports from Commission technicians on quail production based on both spring and late fall surveys confirm the optimistic outlook for the coming season. The spring- whistle count taken in all counties first indicated a good carry-over of birds from the previous year. A recent survey made during the past two weeks ami still In progress substantiates the favorable spring report. Quail technicians reported this week that the Eall survey had thus far covered twelve test areas representing each section of the state and resulted in finding nn average of one covey per hour. The number of birds in each covey averaged 13. Well trained dogs were used on these surveys. This Information coupled with the spring whistle count, roadside checks of rural mall carriers, and actual quail census reports, enables the Commission to determine each year the state's quail production and population and to better regulate season dates and bag limits. A FURTHER STEP being taken by the Commission for the accurate determination of senson and bag limits is a request for full cooperation from hunters during the coming season. The Commission' is vitally interested In obtaining through hunters and Game Wardens two types of informtaion. First, every quail hunter Is asked to semi in to the Commission ihe right wing of quails taken in the field, especially during the first two weeks of the season. Second, hunters are asked to fill out a minimum of six hunting reports during the season showing the number of dogs used, hours hunted, coveys found, birds taken, and other information from the field. Interested hunters are urged to obtain kill sheets from their local wardens. An interesting case study of shifting quail populations has taken place this year at the Southwest Field Trial Course located on State Hospital property ;vt Bwmcvillc. In spite of the intensive efforts to hold birds in this urea by Commission quail technicians, heavy overgrazing during the summer prompted the birds to abandon the area. * * * GENE RUSH, Area Project Leader, had made this report to the Commission with regard to efforts to hold birds In the area: "During the 1955 planting season, 47 acres were planted by Game and Fish Technicians fn annuals, consisting of mi-ripper peas and dwarf milo nia-Ue, In 51 separate wildlife food plots. A 12-acrc food, and cover demonstration plot was planted in permanent wildlife food plants as well as annuals. "Five cover and range plots of approximately 10 acres each were built adjacent to established two-acre wildlife food plots in selected locations over the course. Seventy-five thousand Lespdeza bicolor seedlings were transplanted in 57 separate food plots." It can he seen from this activity report that the obvious answer to abnmlonmenl of the nnssi by birds was brought about by overrating and depiction of the food and rover of the area. The overgrazing factor was substantiated this past week by an additional survey covering an area of a quarter mile outside the field irliil course. Six hours of field work produced 12 coveys totaling 167 birds, above average for the course.

McKnight very modestly termed th« upcoming Texas Christian-Mississippi clash as "a very swell bowl game" and said it woum be for the football championship of the South. He wouldn't claim the Cotton Bowl engagement Jan. 2 between the Horned Frogs and Rebels as ihe best bowl game in the country but said pointedly that "we have two fine teams that compiled impressive 9-1 records against strong competition." "Since Texas Christian is champion of the Southwest Conference and Mississippi is champion of the Southeast Conference, we are going to bill this game .as for the championship of the South," McKnight added. "These are two of the best conferences in the country and their champions are great teams McKnight said he thought the Cotton Bowl had the leading attraction in Jim Swink, the great Texas Christian halbacK. "He's the one the country has been talking about the most," said the Cotton Bowl president. "TCU and Mississippi both have high-powered offenses and I think we'll have a scoring game that will furnish plenty of thrills." Mississippi was invited as visiting tenm by McKnight as soon as the Army-Navy game was over in Philadelphia. Navy was a strong contender for the visiting spot in the Cotton Bowl but stepper! out of the bowl picture when It was beaten by Army 14-6. McKnight was in Philadelphia lor the game and was receiving reports from tue Cotton Bowl office on the result* of other important guinea involving Cotton Bowl prspects.
