I I tice to cut down contamination between himaelf and patients \ gaining the league lead In that department as the New York Jets whipped Miami 30-13. Buffalo's' Janik caught only two passes, but they were thrown by Houston's Don Trull, and the interceptions were key factors in the Bills' 42-20 triumph over the Oilers. The 26 - year - old safetyman picked off his first pass in the second quarter, setting up a touchdown that put the Bills ahead 21-13. Minutes later he got in the way of another Trull aerial and this time rambled 37' yards for a touchdown. On the way to their respective dressing rooms after the game, Janik chatted with Trull and told the Oiler quarterback he got the ball the second time ahead of intended receiver Larry Elkins because he gambled on where Trull was going to throw it. The gamble worked, and the Bills went on to Increase their Eastern Division lead to one game over Boston. Oakland slicked- Kansas City's Western lead to IVz games by defeating Denver 17-3. Graham, who hadn't scored a touchdown since 1964, tallied twice for Boston on two of the 11 passes he caught. Babe Parilli hit him on touchdown passes of 21 and 38 yards. Taylor also scored twice, taking passes of 21 and 26 yards from Len Dawson. The second one gave the Chiefs a 27-24 lead, but Gino Cappelletti's second field goal of the game, a 19-yarder with 24 seconds left, brought the Patriots a tie. New York's Sauer didn't score any touchdowns, but the 144 yards he gained on his eight First Trip For Boilermoken Purdue Has Job Of Saying Big 10 Prestige In Bow/ By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - Purdue fi- receptions put the Jets into scoring territory more than once. Emerson Boozer scored twice, the second time on a 9&yard run with the second-half kickoff. Art Powell, another of the league's top receivers, caught only one pass for Oakland, but it was an 18-yard scoring toss from Tom Flores. The Raider quarterback also threw two yards to Larry Todd for a touchdown. nally has nailed down its first Rose Bowl bid and with it the responsibility of regaining Big responsibility of regaining Big Ten prestige which was battered along the nation's gridirons this season. The indecision of Saturday's 10-10 tie between Big Ten champion Michigan State and top- ranked Notre Dame merely capped the worst leason the Big Ten has experienced against non-conference ioei. Iowa's 444) loss to Florida Friday night and the Michigan State-Notre Dame tie left the Big Ten with an 11-17-1 record against outside opposition. Now Purdue gets an opportunity to do some face saving with a victory in the Rose Bowl game. The Boilermakers clearly will take the second best team in the conference west inasmuch as Michigan State could not make a repeat trip. Purdue, having lost only to Michigan State and Notre Dame, finished second, one lap behind Michigan State and two games ahead of Michigan and Illinois who deadlocjted for third place. Spearheaded by quarterback Bob Griese on offense and halfback LeRoy Keyes on defense, Purdue finished with a rush after mending its defenses. Once ranked ninth in the Big Ten defensively, Purdue finished third after blanking Wisconsin and Minnesota in succession and then yielding oiily six folnts hi Saturday's windup agprinst Indi< ana in a 51-6 rout While Purdue ww retaining the Old Oaken Bucket with eaSft against undermanned Indiana-,Michigan whipped Ohio State 17-3 and Northwestern and Wis^ consin sprung a pair of upsetsJ Northwestern trampled favored Illinois 35-7, and Wisconsin, winning one for outgoing coach Milt Bruhn, edged Minnesota 7-6. Purdue's comparative strength against the West Coast representative in the Rose Bowl difficult to determine since thfe Boilermakers did not meet anyone from the Far West. The Big Ten carved a 4-4 record against West Coast teams. The West Coast probably will be represented by either UCLA or Southern California. florid a-Geo. Tech For Orange Bowl VaSMI, Fla.
