Tatum Doesn't Fear Use of Second Unit COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Coach Jim Tatum felt that one of the biggest reasons Oklahoma beat his Maryland football team 7-0 in the 1954 Orange Bowl Was that Coach Bud Wilkinson "outsubstituted" him. He doesn't expect to be caught that way again in their return match Jan. 2. "I didn't have the confidence In my second team that year," Tatum disclosed. "The one great advantage th'. team has over that 1953 squad is that I won't be afraid' to put the No. 2 team in at a crucial point of the game." Tatum says that actually it's a misnomer to call it the No. 2 team. He calls it,the alternate and during most of the past undefeated season he sent It in with six minutes to go in each quarter regardless of the situation. Wilkinson's alternate team also Is on a par with the starting unit, according -to Tatum, and in fact "theirs compares offensively with the first better than ours does." While Tatum has a world of respect for -Oklahoma, praising its "everlasting speed," he still believes "we have some stronger po sitions." Tatum says one caa't predict what might happen when Oklahoma's leading offensive team in the country meets his defense which was the second best, statistically speaking. "Oklahoma hasn't played a defense of our record, but we haven't met an offense that has scored an average 36.5 points a game, either," he said.

Northwestern, for the first time in hisiory, failed to win a football game this season, but tied Illinois 7-7 in the final game.
