Seek 1st In Rankings- Nebraska In Orange Bowl By The Associated Press Nebraska has become the first major college football team to accept a bowl bid and now Coach Bob Devaney is shooting for first in the rankings, as well. "I've never said this before, but at the present time I think we have as much right to be No. 1 as anybody," Devaney said Saturday after the fourth- ranked Cornhuskers blasted No. 20 Kansas State 51-13. Sunday night, Nebraska accepted a bid to the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day. "It was the only offer we got," Devaney said. "We did not turn down offers from any other bowls." Representatives from the Orange, Cotton and Sugar Bowls watched Saturday's game, but Devaney said he advised his team, now 9-0-1, to accept the Orange Bowl offer. "I thought having this thing on our minds about a bowl would have a bad effect on preparing for this week's game against Oklahoma," he said. "The players were enthusiastic about the Orange Bowl and I thought it was best to get it settled." In Saturday's game, Jo* Or- duna scored four touchdowns and Nebraska's pass rush harassed K-State's heralded Lynn Dickey into seven interceptions. Devaney called it "one of our finest wins" and Coach Vince Gibson of the losers said Nebraska "might be the best team in America." Nebraska was not alone Timtt Herald, Carroll, la.

"We took a bad whipping," said TCU Coach Fred Taylor "They have a great team." "We just had something to prove," said defensive end Bill Atessis of the winners, referring to the previous week's listless 21-14 victory over Baylor. With fullback Steve Worster nursing an injury for most of the game, Jim Bertelsen took Blanda Rescues Raiders; Jets Surprise Rams, 31-20 By The Associated Press George Blanda did it again ... and the injury-riddled New York Jets did almost the impossible. In a Sunday marked by upsets and near upsets in the National Football League, the 43-year-old Blanda, Oakland's backup quarterback, led the Raiders to victory for the third straight week. This time he came off the bench with less than four minutes to play, replacing Daryle Lamonica, and rallied the Raiders to a 24-19 triumph over the Denver Broncos. Meanwhile, the Jets snapped a six-game losing streak by routing heavily favored Los Angeles 31-20. Quarterback Al Woodall tossed three touchdown passes as the Rams suffered their first loss to a former American Football League club. In other upsets, the Buffalo Bills held the Baltimore Colts to a 17-17 deadlock; the Philadelphia Eagles played to a 1313 tie with the Atlanta Falcons and the Cincinnati Ben­ gals edged the Cleveland Browns 14-10. The New York Giants had to rally to overcome the Washington Redskins 35-33, the Green Bay Packers nipped the Chicago Bears 20-19, and the San Diego Chargers got by the Boston Patriots 16-14. In other games, the Minnesota WE HAVE THE GENUINE i TOP QUALITY WINDOW Vikings virtually wrapped up the National Conference's Central Division title with a 24-20 victory over the Detroit Lions; the Kansas City Chiefs clubbed the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-14; the Miami Dolphins upended the New Orleans Saints 21-10 and the San Francisco 49ers belted the Houston Oilers 30-20. Cyclones Missouri, AMES (AP) — It was only poetic justice that sophomore George Amundson would score three touchdowns as Iowa State won its "most important victory" Saturday in downing Missouri 31-19. Amundson, a 6-3, 210-pound- er from Aberdeen, S.D., could be taken as the symbol of Iowa State's new football for* tunes.

"It was a win worth waiting for because we have had such ia tough year," added Majors. "It is the boost we need to get rolling again." The victory ended a five- game Cyclone losing streak, marked ISU's first conference victory in nine games over two years and put Majors' team within reach of the school's first winning season in five years. Games against Oklahoma State (3-6) and San Diego State (9-0) are left on the schedule — both on the road. The Cyclones are 4-5 overall and 1-5 in the Big Eight. "Now we have a good chance to finish with three wins," not' Upset 31-19 ed Majors. "It is still going to be a fight but I think we can do it because this team has a lot of pride." Getting down to specifics, Majors cited the Cyclones' fine line blocking and the play of Amundson and Dean Carlson as standout factors in the first Iowa State win at Missouri in 32 years.

East St. — Carroll "The big thing for us was that we kept plugging and when Amundson got the long touchdown run (a 77-yarder) that sort of swung the momentum our way," noted Majors. Amundson, who took over for Carlson at quarterback at the start of the second half with ISU trailing 12-10, also scored on runs of one and 33 yards — the last pushing the Cyclones to a 30-19 lead after Missouri had closed within five points. He finished with 135 yards in 13 carries and added another 100 yards on eight of 21 passing. Carlson scored the other Iowa State TD on a 20-yard run in the first quarter. Reggie Shoemake took care of the rest of the Iowa State scoring with a 39-yard field goal— his 14th, of the season — and four extra point kicks. Missouri coach Dan Devine also paid tribute to Iowa State as his Tigers dropped their sixth game in 10 starts. "This is the best Iowa State team I've seen in my 13 years here" said Devine. "They have good personnel and are well coached." Missouri held a statistical advantage in the game — rolling up 461 yards to 384 for Iowa State.

Notre Dame got a vote to retain its No. 1 ranking from Coach Bud Carson of Georgia Tech. "I've been saying all week that Notre Dame was No. 1 and nothing happened to change my mind," said Carson, who added, "I've never been more proud of a defensive effort in my 27 years in football." The Fighting Irish needed Denny Allan's two-yard plunge with 6 ] /z minutes left, the seventh play of an 80-yard drive, to nose out the fired-up Yellow Jackets, who are still in line for a bowl bid themselves. Third-ranked Ohio State and fifth-rated Michigan continued unbeaten toward their showdown in Columbus next Saturday ... but with different type triumphs. The Buckeyes needed Fred Schram's 30-yard field goal with two minutes remaining to edge Purdue 10-7 in icy rain and snow while the Wolverines trampled Iowa 55-0 as Don Moorhead set a career total offense record and Billy Taylor gained 189 yards and scored twice. It will be the first time in the Big Ten's 75-year history that two unbeaten teams have met in the last game of the season. President Nixon got back into the football swing of things, telephoning both the Ohio State and Purdue dressing rooms after their regionally televised clash. "He just offered his congratulations," reported Coach Woody Hayes of the Buckeyes. Michigan's Bo Schembechler isn't concerned with rankings ... yet. "Saturday should tell where Michigan should be in the polls," he said. Elsewhere, sixth-ranked Stanford was stunned 31-14 by No. 13 Air Force as Bob Parker threw three touchdown passes to Ernie Jennings. It was "the biggest game and victory in Air Force Academy football history," said Coach Ben Martin of the Falcons, who are in line for a major bowl appearance. Bill McClard booted the longest field goal in major college history, a 60-yarder, and Bill Montgomery passed for 294 yards as seventh-rated Arkansas intercepted eight of sub quarterback Gary Carter's passes and trounced Southern Methodist 36-3.

Shug Chumbler, replacing the injured Archie Manning, hurled four touchdown passes as No. 12 Mississippi stormed past Chattanooga 44-7. San Diego State, No. 14, crushed Santa Barbara 64-7. No. 15 Dartmouth clinched a tie for the Ivy League crown with a 24-0 triumph over Cornell. Toledo, rated 16th, overcame an early deficit and hammered Dayton 31-7. Sonny Sixkiller and Greg Collins threw three scoring passes apiece to lead Washington to a shocking 61-20 rout of 17th-ranked UCLA. Southern California, No. 18, was idle and No. 20 Oregon needed Bobby Moore's 59-yard touchdown gallop and two-point conversion catch with four minutes left to tie oft-beaten Army 22- all. Louisville captured the Missouri Valley title and a berth in the Pasadena Bowl by defeating Cincinnati 28-14. FUNNY BUSINESS By Roger Bellcn Hi a y 0 W* ] Grid Probe Centers On Anti-Trust CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) A federal grand jury investigation involving most—if not all —the teams of the National Football League opens today in Cleveland. The U.S. Department of Justice has maintained absolute silence on the investigiaition, and NFL officials say itihey are completely in the dark on the purpose of the probe. One guess is that the Justice Department lawyers want to quiz officials of the 20 or more NFL clubs from coast to coast about possible anti-trust violations. Former Cleveland Browns linemen John Wooten, who presently is executive vice president of the Black Economic Union, says he thinks possible antitrust violations in the NFL merger with tine American Football Conference will be considered. Wooten said he was questioned a year ago by an agent from the Justice Department. "They were interviewing players all over the country," Wooten said. Questions concerned player conditions, possible violations of players' constitutional rights and racial aspects. Bill Guthrie, sports editor of the New Haven Journal Courier and president of the Professional Football Writers Association, said possible anti-trust violations were to be investigated. He quoted a reliable source as saying three-fourtihs of the defensive backfield of the Browns' 1965 title team was to be in Cleveland for the investigation. Guthrie identified the witnesses as Bernie Parrish, Ross Fichtner and Walter Beach. Beach, currently a student at Yale Law School, says he filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission two years ago against the Browns. Beach was waived prior to the 1967 season and was not given a tryout by any other team. One of .the matters to be discussed, Guthrie said he learned, is the question of reimbursement for a player who plays out his contract option and is signed by another team. Cleveland Browns head coach Blanton Collier was called to testify today, and Browns' owner Art Modell and some other club officMs were asked to appear Tuesday. The only other club confirming that its officials had been subpoenaed for this week was the St. Louis Cardinals, whose officials were called for Wednesday.

Carroll, Iowa Michigan Sought Votes In 55-0 Rout of Hawks IOWA CITY (AP) — The weather and Iowa's football fortunes were similar Saturday as the Hawkeyes were dumped 550 by Michigan — bleak. The fifth-ranked Wolverines tuned up for their showdown with Ohio State next Saturday by belting Iowa for 561 yards and rushing to at least one touchdown in each quarter. "I think Michigan is the number one team in the country," Nagel offered after the Wolverines upped their overall mark to 9-0. Did Nagel feel Michigan coach Bo Schembechler could have been trying to influence the poll voters? "They are shooting for the national championship and they were trying to win convincingly," Nagel noted. Maybe too convincingly? most of the way." said Nagel who also noted that Taylor and middle guard Henry Hill did not leave until they were injured. Taylor did his damage often and early. The speedy junior, who had 225 yards rushing against Iowa last year in a 51-6 triumph, collected 189 in 23 carries this time and scored two touchdowns. Michigan had its number one j "There is little doubt that runner (Billy Taylor) and its I Michigan was the superior top defensive players in there | team," said Nagel.
