10 THE-REGiSTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, )966 > IRmSPARTANS AWAIT VOTE-WHO'S NO. t? '10 Battle Ends In Controversy As Notre Dome Stalls By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sporta Writer With the college football season all but over, the balloting season begins in earnest and a handful of victorious clubs nervously await their postseason fate. There are the clubs hoping forbids to play in major bowl games — UCLA and Southern California for the Rose Bowl, and Mississippi or Tennessee for the Gator Bowl. Arkansas' chances for the Cotton Bowl depend on Southern Methodist's losing to a weak Texas Christian team on Saturday. And then there are Michigan State and Notre Dame, which are sweating out ballots of a different kind: The ones that will decide which is the top team in the country. The Irish and Spartans, ranked 1-2 last week, fought to a 10-10 tie in their clash at East Lansing, Mich., Saturday. The Sugar Bowl has already picked its teams — Alabama, 80, and Nebraska, 9-0. The Crim- Bon Tide was No. 3 In las^ week's Associated Press college foitball poll and the Cornhusk- erjt were No. 4. And the Orange Rojivl has picked fifth-ranked Gabrgia Tech, 9-0, to play Flori- dai; 8-1. '©ther teams set for bowl com- pejiition are lOth-ranked Purdue, Sr% as the Big Ten representa- ti^^ In the Rose Bowl; ninth-rat- efl; Georgia, 8-1, in the Cotton Bcpvl; and Syracuse, 8-2, in the d^tor Bowl. The Pacific 8 Rose Bowl representative may have been decided Saturday when UCLA, N<J. 8, beat Southern California, Nd. 7,14-7. The Trojans are con- fefence champions — they J)l4yed one league game more than the Bruins — but UCLA, wath a 9-1 mark, is one game up ortthem overall. Arkansas' chances for a Cot- toii Bowl bid and another Southwest Conference title were rudely, .treated Saturday when upstart Texas Tech beat the Ra- Kffbacks, 21-16. SMU, a 24-22 victor over Baylor, can clinch bqth the bowl bid and the cham- pipnship with a victory over •'Michigan State jumped to a liCW) lead over Notre Dame, but 1}|a Irish, with substitute quart^tack Coley O'Brien in cljarge, fought back for the tie. Thfe game ended in controversy with Notre Dame seemingly tiffing to run out the clock by keeping the ball on the ground njther than go for the winning BCpre. IBob Griese passed for three touchdowns and kicked a field ^al and six extra points as V^due beat Indiana, 51-6.

Any Way You Look At It Jefferson Motors GIVES YOU TOP VALUE AT A BOTTOM PRICE By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Last month, Johnny Unitas was just another quarterback to Garo Yepremian, the Cypriot Lion. Sunday, Unitas was just another quarterback to Yepremi- cm's Detroit playmates. The Lions intercepted five Unitas passes before driving the Baltimore quarterback ace to cover Sunday on the way to a 20-14 National Football League upset victory over the Colts. Yepremian, the left-foot, soc- cer-iityle place-kicker from Cyprus who made his NFL debut against the Colts on Oct. 16, booted a pair of field goals for the Lions' winning margin in the return match. Before the clubs' first meeting, Yepremian was asked if he'd ever heard of Unitas. "He's a quarterback," the little newcomer said. "I hear about him on television. Whose quarterback is he?" Unitas then fired four touchdown passes, leading the Colts to a 5-1 romp over Deti'oit. It was a different story Sunday, the Lion defenders blanking Baltimore until sub quarterback Cary Cuozzo replaced Uni­ tas in the final period and hit John Mackey with a 64-yard TD pass. Unitas connected on only nine of 19 pass attempts for a total of 93 yards. Yepremian meanwhile kicked field goals of 17 and 21 yards, Pat Studstill gi-abbed a 9-yard scoring pass from Karl Sweetan and Bobby Felts plunged a yai-d for another Detroit touchdown. The loss, coupled with Green Bay's 13-6 victory over Chicago, dropped the Colts one game behind the Packers in the league's Western Division title race. Dallas trimmed Pittsburgh 207 and tied idle St Louis for the Eastern Division lead; Cleveland remained in the Eastern race by beating Washington 143; Atlanta drvibbed New York 27-16 for its first NFL victory; Philadelphia nipped San Francisco 35-34 and Los Angeles downed Minnesota 21-6 in other games. Zeke Bratkowski, filling in for injured Bart Starr, fired two touchdown passes to Carroll Dale, leading Green Bay past the Bears. Bratkowski and Dale connected on a climactic 33- yard scoring play after Chicago's Roger Leclerc missed the extra point attempt following Gale Sayers' two-yard touchdown dive. StaiT suffered a pulled hamstring muscle on his first pass attempt in the game.

Charges of being faint-hearted and running out the clock to presei-ve a come - from - behind 10-10 tie at Michigan State Saturday drew plenty of sparks from the volatile Irish coach.

"Everybody is making a federal case out of the last-minute of the game when we closed with six straight running plays in our own territory," said Pai-seghian. "Our whole game plan, which certainly was hit hard by key injuries, was not to open up until we had good field position. At the end if we had moved to their 45 or so we might have gone to the air. But we weren't going to gamble against percentages and lose on an inter- .<:eption and possible field goal. "We didn't achieve the success we have enjoyed this season by making stupid mistakes. If I had Saturday's game to do all over, I still wouldn't throw the ball until I had field posi- Uon." Parseghian, whose crippled club doses at Southern California Saturday, said he was anxious to see how the national AP poll develops after the Irish- Spartan deadlock. : He had a lot more to say against criticism of his game- ending freeze for the disappointing 10-10 tie. He asserted: "Nobody has said anything about the Michigan State missing a 13-10 defeat by a margin of three feet or less in the last five minutes. Our Joe Azzaro's missed field goal by that slim margin came after Michigan State gambled with a pass from its own 20 and we intercepted. "All these experts who said we should have thrown the bomb as the clock ran out, forget we didn't hit the bomb for 59 minutes before. "And they forget any interception against us at the close could have given Dick Kenney a field goal shot within the 50. Kenney kicked one 47 yards which gave Michigan State its 10-0 lead. Last week, he had a 57-yarder just miss." NU BOWL LANCS SENIOR BOYS High Series—John Richey 507; David Hammond 501; Steve Woodrome 499; Peter Modert 482; Mike Lemon 451; Ronnie Williams 446. JR.

(AP) — Michigan State halfback Qint Jones, who set a Big Ten record by running 268 yards against Iowa, thought he played a better game against Notre Dame, although he gained only 13 yards. Jones carried the ball just 10 times. The rest of the time he was blocking, helping Jimmy Raye run 75 yards and throwing a key block in Regis Cavender's four-yard touchdown run. "I think we're No. 1," he said Sunday. "I think if we played them again we could beat them. But that's water over the dam." MSU Ctoach Duffy Daugherty said it was the type of game where "no back was going to have any running room." Thus, he wasn't ready to accept any arguments that Notre Dame would have been much stronger if injured haflback Nick Eddy had played. And, he noted, Notre Dame trounced Duke 64^0 without Eddy. The Irish sophomore sensation, quarterback Terry Hanratty, left the game in the first quarter after powerful Charlie Thomhill, a 5-10, 205-pound linebacker, and Bubba Smith, NSU's 6-foot-7, 283-pound defensive end, tackled him on a running play. But, said Daugherty, while Hanratty was in, "we had him pretty well stopped." Daugherty declined to do what many a fan in Lansing was doing —criticizing the Fighting Irish for not going all out at the end to win. There were two ways to look at the situation—he said—to choose to protect the tie or to pass. "Two 'out' (pass patterns hi which the receiver steps out of bounds after the catch to stop the clock) would have put them in field goal range," he said. It was Michigan State that was doing the clock stopping. Daugherty said he had no doubt, either, about taldng the risk of giving Notre Dame time with the ball. "If we could have recovered the ball down there (the Notre Dame 34) we would have been in field goal range," he said. Crowd Roots For "Moneybags" Arnie's Birdie Putt On 18th Wins At Houston By MURRAY ROSE HOUSTON (AP) — When the people root for a millionaire over an average guy, then the moneybags man must be something special. Amie Palmer Is something special. The personable, usually-smiling golf pro had Amie's Army rooting for him to win the 5110,000 Houston Champions International Golf Tournament Sunday and he obliged by sinking a pressure-packed 12-foot putt for a birdie 3 to the 18th hole to win by a stroke over Gardner Dickinson Jr. An estimated crowd of 30,000 swarmed over the beautiful grounds of the immaculately groomed 7,118-yard par 36-35 layout of the Champions Golf Club and most of the spectators tried to follow Palmer on a perfect, summery day. The 37-year-oId son of a golf pro from Latrobe, Pa,, has had his army since 1960 when he scored eight victories including triumphs in the Masters and the U.S. Open. He amuses the fans with his quips, delights them with his facial expressions and hand gestures, tolerates their behavior and awes them with his tremendous drives and precision Iron shots. Palmer was sitting In the press room after his final round of 34-35—69 for 275, nine strokes under par, when Dickinson, a iuingry-looking, 5-foot-ll, 130- pounder who hadn't won a regular pro tournament since 1962, stroke to the 18th needing a par 4 to tie Pahnor ;>nd force a sudden death playoff. Dickinson, a M9 -year-old Alabama native playing out of Lost Tree Village, Fla., got off a good drive on the 428-yard hole. He flubbed his second shot, however, sending it to the right He chipped weakly and was short of the green on his third. Then he chipped boldly from about 30 feet out. The ball slid about three inches past the hole. Dickinson, the co-leader at the Iialfway mark and leader by one stroke over Palmer after three rounds, finished with an even par 36-35—71 for 276, eight under par. County Hunters Score In Pope Five hunters bi-ought back four deer from a trip Fi-iday and Saturday to northern Pope county. In the group were Dr. C. K. Wells, Dr. Earl Neal, Kari D. Price and J. C. Livingston of Mt. Vernon and Bill Eamhart of Mulkeytown. Price got the best trophy of the hunt, an 8-point buck which weighed 156 pounds, field dressed. Dr. Wells, Eamhart and Livingston each bagged does, weighing 80 to 102 pounds. 61 Deer Killed During Weekend In This County Sixty-one deer were killed in Jeffei-son county during the first three days of the shotgun season that ended yesterday. Howard Williams, conservation officer, said there were 72 deer killed during the entire six days of the shotgun season in 1965. The season here is divided into two parts, each three days in duration. The largest kill hi the countyi Williams said, was a 232-pound, 8-point buck. There were three 11-point bucks registered during the 3-day period, Williams reported.
