"We have got to stop the offensive giveaway," Majors cautioned. "Teams in this conference are too tough week in and week out to make mistakes against and still expect to win." A shuffled offensive line-up and the return of a couple of key injured players should boost Iowa State's chances. Junior Doan Carlson again will be back at quarterback Tlmtt HtroM, Corroll, lo.

Sophomore Dave Pittman will be back at center and hopefully stellar punter Ralph Barcaz will be back in action. Both missed the Kansas gamt and it was costly. Majors hopes their return, coupled with four offensive lineup changes, will charge up the offense that has scored only 201 ing for another big day from points in three conference i senior split end Otto Stowe who games. has caught 28 passes for 377 ^ . , . „ yards and a touchdown so far 'Our defense has played well in shattering one school record FUNNY IUSINISS By Roger ftollen enough to win in our last two games, but our offense has not been able to score once we get inside the 20-and it's fatal," said Majors.

The other ofensive change puts junior Mike Terrizzi at right guard in place of two-year letterman Jerry Berna.

Stanford's htad ftotb.ll coach was smiling as he looked ahead to Saturday's encounter with Oregon State and its colorful, rotund coach, Dee Andros—but then, stranger things have happened on the way to the Rose Bowl. Like three years ago when bowlbound Southern California ran into OSU and wound up with its only setback, a 30 stunner by Dee's Beavers. Nevertheless, this looks like Stanford's year and, despite a threat by Oregon's 16th ranked Ducks, it appears quarterback Jim Plunkett and his No. 6 In dtans will stay on the warpath toward the Pacific 8 Conference title and Pasadena on New Year's Day. Stanford's Root Bowl opposition—if the Indians do go all the way—will be all but decided as well Saturday.

"It's the biggest game since I've been head coach," says Northwestern's Alex Agase, who's had the job since 1964. "Nobody beats me or my players until they prove it on the field." Ohio State's Buckeyes are likely to do just that.

Favor Vikings In Clash With Lions Area Games Friday Games— Sioux City Central at Kuemper (8 p.m.) Carroll at Denison (7:30 p.m.) Harlan at Lake City Audubon at Sac City Jefferson at Perry Manning at Manilla Glidden-Ralston at Bayard Coon Rapids at Extra Guthrie Center at Scranton Ar-We-Va at Schleswig NEW YORK (AP) - The National Football League season reaches its midway mark this week with several critical games scheduled, including a NFC Central struggle for supremacy between Minnesota and Detroit that is enough to shake any selector. This one is no different, and if the Vikings-Lions match-up doesn't do it, there's always Oakland-Kansas City or Green Bay-San Francisco, two other games that have a distinct bearing on conference races. But pick we must. So here goes: SUNDAY'S GAMES Minnesota 24, Detroit 14—The Vikings have allowed only 39 points, including key victory over Rams last week, and Gary Cuozzo directs a precision ball- control offense. Lions hurt by losing defensive end Joe Robb. Groon Bay 21, San Francisco 27—Packers, waiting for either Vikings or Lions to falter, upset Western NFC leaders on passing of Bart Starr and running of Donny Anderson, who seems finally to be enjoying himself as a pro. Oakland 34, Kansas City 21- Maybe the Chiefs left their play book at the Super Bowl. But they haven't been the same since. Both teams chasing Denver in AFC West, but it'll be Raiders who catch Broncos now that Dan Conners is back at middle linegacker. Cleveland 35, San Diego 31- The Chargers can score bul they give up more than they put on the board. Browns surprised defensively with shutout of Miami and Bill Nelsen now is No. 2 among AFC passers. St. Louis 31, Houston 17— Stunned by Giants last week Cardinals must right them selves, and should be able to do so with MacArthur Lane and Co. riddling crippled Oilers. Baltimore 28, Miami 24—Don Shula, former Colt coach, will throw everything at Baltimore, but it's Bob Griese who really has to connect. Bubba Smith making Colts' Front Four mayhem-bent outfit. Denver 31, Washington 20—Interesting battle between rushing leaders, AFC's Floyd Little for Broncos and NFC's Larry Brown for Redskins. Denver defense tougher, Little gets more yardage, Broncs win. and closing in on second. "We need two things on offense—more consistency and more concentrations," Majors noted earlier in the week. "I think a lack of concentration was the reason for three of the ive fumbles against KU be- ause we dropped them when .here wasn't even any contact." Two of the team's mere consistent — and productive — players have been senior tailback Jock Johnson and place-kicker Reggie Shoemake. Johnson, a Des Moines senior, las 342 of the total 1,029 yard the Cyclones have managed on rushing and has averaged 3.7 yards a carry. Shoemake, who already has shattered four school records with his kicking heroics, has scored 39 of ISU's 105 points mostly by making good on 10 of 14 field goals—one from 49 yards out. Majors thinks the Sooners' rushing attack will be tough for ISU to stop. "They have shown an impressive running game and Joe Wylie and Leon Crooswhite are two fine running backs and quarterback Jack Mildren is an explosive threat on the option play," said Majors. Oklahoma, 3-3 overall and 1-1 in the conference, is the Big Eight's worst offensive club with an average of 304.5 yards a game—only 86 per game by passing. Iowa State on the other hand is the conference's toughest team to pass against—giving up only an average of 100.7 yards per game. ISU ranks third overall in defense. Saturday's 1:30 p. m. meeting between the two will be the 43rd game in a series dating back to 1928. The Sooners hold a overwhelming 37-4-1 edge and Iowa has not won since a 21-15 victory in 1961.

Wildcats Eye Upset CHICAGO (AP) - The Big Ten logjam for first place—now shared by three teams—and for fourth spot—shared by six—will be broken Saturday on a football schedule that features unbeaten conference leaders Ohio State and Northwestern. Northwestern, with victories over Illinois, Wisconsin and Purdue, matches its 3-0 against the Buckeyes in Columbus, Ohio. The Bucks, who dropped from first to second in the AP poll this week, are undefeated for the season, including Big Ten decisions over Michigan State, Minnesota and Illinois. differential, Minnesota is rated at least a two-touchdown favor- We need to turn around our momentum and get it goinff in our favor, and the only way we can do flhat is with a wto," Nagel noted. "We need to get The Wildcats, who have lost their last four meetings with OSU, head the conference in total defense with an average yield of 3.3 yards per play. Ohio State is No. 1 on offense by averaging 5.4 yards per play. Northwestern's main striking force are Maury Daigneau, who has hit on 60 of 132 passes for 692 yards and seven touchdowns for the season, and fullback Mike Adamle. Adamle, who can throw and catch passes, thrust 441 yards in three league games to lead Big Ten rushers.

"We are going to have to do a number of things differently to try to get our offense going." said Iowa coach Ray Nagl as he prepared his 1-5 team for the game. "We are going to try to do some new things and we know there is a certain gamble involved," Nagel added about his team's offense that has scored only 51 points and in three games has failed to get even a touchdown. Despite its lackluster 1-4 record, Minnesota is a tough foe according to Nagel. "We consider Minnesota a stronger team than Michigan State," Nagel said. "We are going up there to play tto we can and we feel we have an opportunity to pull an upset if we play a good game." The Gophers have beaten Ohio University (49-7) and Indiana (23-0), but lost by 20 points or more to Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State and Michigan—all more wreckleas and loosen up in our remaining gamer" For one thong, the Hawfcegret will look o unloosen an attack that can get more than iflt yards, the meager total shown last week in a 37-0 defeat by Michigan State.

Iowa will need a good day OB defense too as the Gophers have scored 92 points despite their record and have the conference's top passer m junior Craig Curry. Past defensive record does not favor Iowa, the Hawkeyes have given up 428 yards a game and intercepted only two passes.
