Baltimore, Friday, THE SUN SPORTS November 25, 1966 PAGE C3 Oklahoma Stuns Nebraska, 10-9, With Field Goal In Last Minute MIKE VAGHON MAKES KICK Pass Interception Thwarts Huskers On Final Play Norman, Okla., Nov. 20 JV-So phomore kicking specialist Mike Vachon booted a 21-yard field goal with only 48 seconds remaining as Oklahoma stunned previously un Beaten Nebraska, 10-9, today. Vachon, who had missed a 23- yard attempt earlier in the period came on to climax a Sooner drive which had carried from the Okla homa 24 against the nationally fourth-ranked Cornhuskers. Then the Sooner fans watched anxiously as Nebraska, a team noted for its comebacks, roared past midfield before Rodney Crosswhite intercepted a Bob Churchich pass on the final play oi the nationally televised game Huskers Take Lead . Nebraska took the lead in the third quarter when Dick Davis crashed over from the two, but the extra point try was blocked by Sooner Bobby Stephenson and It was 9-7. Nebraska scored on u second- quarter field goal by Larry Wach-holtz and Oklahoma then took the lead on a 48-yard scoring pass from Bobby Warmack to Eddie Hinton. It was the second time in three years that Oklahoma had spoiled an unbeaten season for the Cornhuskers, who meet third-ranked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl January 2. Oklahoma had handed Nebraska its last previous regular season defeat, 17-7, in the final game of the 1964 season. Vachon, who booted four field goals to lead the Sooners past Texas earlier this year, missed a 33-yard attempt into a strong south wind in the first quarter and then failed on the short 23-yarder with the wind in the fourth. But Oklahoma held the Cornhuskers on four downs and War-mack took charge for the final push at Nebraska. The big play in the drive was a 19-yard burst to the Nebraska 11 by fullback Gary Harper, who seldom carries the ball in the Sooners' I formation offense. Vachon's game-winning kick came on fourth down from a medium angle. Nebraska drove 80 yards for its third quarter touchdown, with 219-pound halfback Ben Gregory getting runs of 11 and 24 yards, the latter burst put the ball on the Oklahoma five, and Davis took it in moments later on a sweep.

Asbury Park llfi Petersburg, Va., Nov 24 Spe cial Bowl-bound Morgan State completed its regular season un defeated here today with a re sounding 65-0 victory over Vir ginia State. The victory ran Morgan's rec ord to 8-0 this season and extended its unbeaten streak to 19 games. Its last defeat came at the hands of this same Virginia State in 1964. The win also gave the Bears their third straight Central In lercollegiate Athletic Association title. Morgan will next take the field in the annual Tangerine Bowl game in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 10. Powerful West Chester (Pa.,) State will provide the opposition. Today's rout of Virginia State was sparked by a twin-powered attack that teatured the passing and kicking of quarterback Daryl Johnson and the running of half back George Nock. Nock, a sophomore halfback, scored the first three Morgan touchdowns, one on a 44-yard sprint. He added a fourth TD on a i-yard burst in the third quarter. I he multi-talented Johnson, a junior, passed for two touchdowns on plays of 29 yards to Jerry Boyd and 16 yards to Alvin Mitchell. He also kept his kicking toe busy as he split the uprights on conversion kicks following each of Morgan's nine touchdowns. 21 Points In Third Morgan broke the game wide open with a 21-point second period after being held to 7 points in the first quarter. The highly regarded Morgan defense held Virginia Slate to 43 yards rushing and 11 yards passing. The other Morgan touchdowns were scored on runs of 3 yards by Wade Johnson, 10 yards by Charlie Marrison and 2 yards by Roland Savage. The Bears added insult to injury by scoring a safety when Morgan's Jeff Queen nailed Virginia State quarterback Larry Suggs in the end zone. Statistics Morgan Va.

Sophomore backs Bill Bradley and Chris Gilbert and senior placekicker David Conway paced Texas' victory, the Longhorns fif ty-first in the 73-game series be tween the two-state supported schools. The triumph also could give Texas a threeway share of the Southwest Conference title if Tex as Christian should upset South ern Methodist Saturday. Patched-Up Lineup The Longhorns, coming back strong with a patched-up lineup because of so many injuries, finished with a 6-4 season record and were 5-2 in the conference. A.&M. completed its season with a 4-5-1 record, 4-3 in the conference. Texas, promised a Bluebonnet bid if it defeated the Aggies, scored in every quarter on a combination of running, passing and kicking to take its first bowl spot since January 1, 1965, when it beat top-ranked Alabama in the Orange Bowl. Bradley Engineers Drives Bradley, the heralded quarter back who has been hampered since the third game of the season by a knee injury, engineered Texas on four scoring drives two touchdowns and two field goals by Conway, who set a conference career record with 131 points. Texas scored its final points on safety in the fourth quarter when 230-pound tackle John Elliott grabbed quarterback Charley Riggs in the end zone.

Francisco Scores 6 TD's As Va. Tech Romps, 70-12 Roanoke, Va., Nov. 24 W-Tail- back Tommy Francisco scored six touchdowns today as Virginia Tech's Gobblers took out their frustrated bowl ambitions on. outclassed Virginia Military Insti tute, bombing the Keydets 70-tol2 for the most onesided victory in their 62-game football rivalry. The Gobblers, who despite their 8-1-1 over-all record apparently won't get the post season bowl bid they'd sought, rolled up 35 points before the Keydets even made a first down and things continued downhill for V.M.I, the rest of the way. Francisco, a 190-pound senior from Damascus, Va., rolled up 133 yards in 32 carries and scored on runs ranging irom l w a yards. Three different quarter backs threw touchdown passes as the Tech offense went all out in what seemed to be a bid to wipe out its conservative image. . Sustained Drives Six of Tech's touchdowns came at the end of sustained drives of 50 yards or more. Two followed successful onside kickoffs, one was set up by a fumble recovery, and the last one came after a 22- yard pass interception runback to the V.M.I. 12-yard line. V.M.I., which had minus rush ing yardage the tirst halt, ti-nihed with a 2-8 over-al record. The game which counted in Southern Conference play for the losers dropped the Keydets to 1-4 and a tie for the league basement with Furman. Tech now leads the traditional Thanksgiving Day series, 36-21-5. V.M.I., once southpaw quarter back Hill Ellett found the passing range, seemed about to make a game of it just before and after the half. The Keydets, -down 35-0 and without a first down, drove 77 yards on Ellett's passing to score with 18 seconds left in the half. The touchdown came on a 31-yard pass from Ellett to Frank Easterly- ' . Tony Gentile's pass interception at the start of the second half, which he ran from the- Tech 49 to the 11, put the Keydets right back in business again, and they scored on a 3-yard toss from Ellett to Jim Breckinridge. V.M.I. held Tech the next time the Gobblers got the ball, but all the spirit seemed to go out of the Keydets when Larry Smith fum bled the Tech punt and Tech tack le Andy Bowling recovered on the V.M.I. 17. Tech scored in six plays to make it 41-12, and the Keydets were dead, even though Ellett hit 11 of 29 passes for 151 yards. Francisco's six touchdowns et a school single-game record and his 14 touchdowns and 84 points tied Tech s season record. Statistics V.M.I. V.P.I.

LAWRENCE NULL By Sun Staff Corretpondentl Annapolis, Nov. 24 In pro foot ball, brute force and the calculat ing mind most often turn the tide. In most college games, the mental and physical readiness of a team plus the breaks, spell the difference between winning and losing. In a traditional rivalry such as the Army-Navy game, to be re newed for the sixty sixth time Sat' urday at 1 P.M. in Philadelphia's John F. Kennedy Stadium the in tangibles often play a much more important role than the technicalities. Consider the two weeks each team has to prepare, and think of nothing other than the arch rival, Consider that coaches have been fired purely on the basis of their showings in "The War." Consider that both student bodies travel many miles on Saturday morning, and spend the entire afternoon standing up yelling. Consider that 100,000 fans annually file into the park to witness the spectacle. " Pressure Is Great Into all this are thrown the foot ball players, and the pressure is tremendous, particularly on the sophomores. Last year quarterback John Cartwright and halfback Terry Murray, both second year men, had starting roles in the big game and both admitted to being more than a little nervous. Elias didn't trust Cartwright to call the plays and when the dust settled from the 7-7 tie, the latter complained publicly about this lack of faith. Cartwright, who has enjoyed a fine season with 79 pass completions and a total offense of 1,186 yards despite Navy's 4-5 record, has been given the go ahead this year. "When you see my back turned to the playing field," Elias grins, that s when Cartwright asked for help. Lindell Army Signal Caller This time, however, the shoe is on the other foot. The signals for Army s twice-beaten Cadets will be called by Steve Lindell, a 20-year-old sophomore from Prince ton, Minn., and the top runner will be 200-pound fullback Chuck Jarvis. , "Just the fact of playing in the Army-Navy game is a big factor with the sophomores," says Ma rine Capt. Harry Dietz,, a Navy assistant coach who once played for Navy in a substitute role. "The noise from the Brigade of Mid shipmen and the Corps of Cadets is tremendous and you get the feeling that 100,000 people are watching you. "A year makes a difference. When you are a junior or senior, you get a little nervous, but when opening whistle blows, you settle down quickly." Although Cartwright is now an "experienced" junior, Navy also will have sophomores in key backfield spots, flanker Bill Newton, and fullback Tom Daley. THE: Morning After By Bob Maisel, Sports Editor ! (Continued Irom 1st Svorti Paae) sentiment building for Tom Cahill, Army's coach. John Sandusky, one of Don Shula's assistants, was talking about it the other day at the unveiling of Joe Campanella as the next Colt general manager. . "I never met the man in my life," said John, "but if he beats Navy and winds up 8-2, he'd get my vote. He's done a heckuva job, Paul Dietzel quit them at a time when they even had to hold up their spring practice because they didn't have a coach. Dietzel even took most of the assistants with him. "They finally gave the job to Cahill, who had been the Plebe coach, he molded a staff and has had a real good season. If he beats Navy, you'd have to give him consideration as Coach of the Year." Big John is right There will be a few things at stake in Philadelphia tomorrow. What if it winds up a tie? ' Well, it all depends upon the circumstances. It could be great, or it could leave an empty feeling, like it dfd when Parseghian decided to run out the clock. Georgetown Results rmsT HACK SSOO: clm.c V mi. Foreiifht (J.

The matter, he said, is up to the school's athletic council of faculty members and alumni.
