(AP Photofax) AIR FORCE, TCU PLAY SCORELESS TIE Iowa, LSU and Oklahoma Win Football Bowl Tests By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Louisiana State the national football champion probably will get a strong argument over the honor from second place Iowa today in the woke of the Sugar and Rose Bowl games. Both teams were heavily fa- vored—LSU by 15 points over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl and Iowa by IB over California, in the Rose Bowl. Only Iowa proved the oddsmakers correct. The Hawkeyes scored in every period to overwhelm California, the Pacific Const Conference king, 3842. LSU had to call on Coach Paul Dietzel to call the play that defeated Clemson 7-0.

Lynch, a standout baseball pitcher in high school, passed up a farm Cubs to stay in the newspaper Thursday night. Dr. Paul diagnosed the as a torn kidney. The high-riding Hawkeyes, who had difficulty in plowing their way the Iowa dressing room, wer« almost nonchalant about their second Rose Bowl triumph. But Bob Jeter was mobbed by fans and couldn't get into the dressing room with th« rest of the squad. Jeter, whose 81-yard second half touchdown run and his yardage gained from 'scrimmage set new bowl records, was named player of the game. Th« trophy ordinarily would was expected to have som» trou* ale from a hefty Clemson Hn«, but by »heer weight 6f numberi, wer* supposed to have things their way in the end. The Clemson line didn't weaken. A broken right hand by LSU quarterback Warren Rahb on th* third play of the game put him out for the second half. These two factor* weighed heavily in forcing Dietzel to revamp his offensive plans—and hope. Hie wisp of hop* came in the third period when Clemson center- Paul Snyder got a firmer grip on some turt than on the ball on * snap-back to punter Bill Mathis. The ball sailed wildly and bounced off the knee of blocker Doug Cline. It wag recovered by LSU tack!* Duane Leopard on the Clemson 11. Two plays gained only one yard and on third down All America halfback Billy Cannon, the games most valuable player, started wide, spotted end Mickey Mangham and hit him with a pass for the score. Cannon kicked the extra point. Calls Scoring Play Dietzel admitted afterward that he called the ncoring play "because Clemson' was putting so nuch pressure on our quarter- lacks when they went back to pass that I figured a halfback run-pass option would take more time." Rabb whose injury was not disclosed until halftime explained ;hat hii passing was handicapped and he was forced to abandon his wide-open offense for a ground game. He hit only two of seven pases. Iowa never had a worry in the Rose Bowl, although they fumbled at the start. Led by Bob (Jet) Jeter, th» Hawkeyes, winning ;heir second Rose Bowl, rolled up 516 yardi overall, 25 more than former recordholder Michigan in 1948 against Southern Cal. Jester ran 81 yardi 'for one score, breaking Northwestern's Frank Aschenbrenner's record of 71 against Cal in 1949. Ke also gained 194 yards overall, 43 more than Bobby Grayson of Stanford against Columbia in 1934, the previous record. ' Iowa scored th» second tim« it had the ball, and managed at least one TD per quarter against a Cal line outweighed an average of 18 pounds per" man. Coach Forest Evashevski't winning formula: "Our basic plan was to run inside and off tackle. We figured they were weak there." Said Cal Coach Pete Elliot: We knew it was coming. . .but it's hard to block a freight train. Jack Hart scored both Cal IDs, one on a yard plunge, the other on a 17-yard pass from quarterback Joe Kapp. Oklahoma used its blinding speed to build up a 14-0 first period lead, added another score in the third and then got pushed around for the rest of the game by a Syracuse line that didn't melt in the 78 degree heat. Racei 42 Yards for TD Fullback Prentice Gautt raced 42 yards on the second play of the game for the first Sooner score.
