Still, it was a rugged, close contest. Fritsch accounted for both Packer touchdowns in the second period on a 2-yard plunge and the all-alone pass reception, and Hutson kicked the conversions. The aroused Giants dominated the second half, but couldn't catch up. Their touchdown came when Ward Cuff, switching from wingback to tail for the first time in eight yea with New York, plowed in from the one.

But he adds: "We are confident we will have a sellout." The biggest turnout, as usual, will be at Pasadena where 100,870 will watch Murray Warmath's Minnesota Gophers attempt to atone for last year's Rose Bowl setback in the battle with Billy Barnes' UCLA champions of the Pacific Coast.

Oilers And Chargers Clash For AFL Crown SAN DIEGO. Calif. (AP)— The young American Football League reaches the climax of its second year Sunday when the two powerhouses, the Houston Oilers and the San Diego Chargers, collide- for the championships'. A year ago the same clubs fought it out for the title in Houston. The Oilers won 24-16. There will be much the same cast — Houston's venerable but still gifted George Blanda • and hard-running halfback Billy Cannon, and the Chargers' pass-happy Jack Kemp and halfback Paul Lowe, plus able supporting talent. Kickoff time is 1:30 p.m. PST, before an anticipated capacity crowd of 34,500 and a national television audience (ABC). Coach Waliy Lamm's Oilers are solid favorites. Blanda, the league's leading passer and second high in scoring, led Houston to a 10-3 season. The team rebounded from a poor start and won its last nine games. Cannon, the ex-Louisiana State All-America, supplied brilliant help and led the league in rushing, averaging 4.7 per carry. San Diego roared to 11 straight victories. Then something set in for Coach Sid Gillman's Chargers, including injuries, and they looked bad in losing two of their last three. The final game of the regular season was a 41-0 walloping by the Boston Patriots which visibly shook the confidence of even the most ardent Charger admires. It had already been shaken when Blanda, Cannon and a pass- hungry end, Charlie Hennigan, snapped the long San Diego winning streak with a 33-13 triumph. San Diego won an earlier game 34-24 when the Oilers were an unorganized dub and the Chargers were rolling high on Kemp's arm and their defensive platoon of a "fearsome foursome" and the "seven pirates." The foursome consisted of the defensive interior line, and the pirates were the men in the secondary who stole a league record 49 passes and returned them 929 yards and nine touchdowns. , Ernie Ladd, biggest of the big foursome at 310 pounds, created a stir when he failed to show up for some of the final practices but Gillman says he will play. Standout in the scoring is 33- year-old Blanda, who is rounding out his 12th year in pro ball, most of them with the Chicago Bears of the rival National League. Blanda threw 36 touchdown passes, kicked 64 points after touchdowns and booted 16 field goals. If it's close, Blanda could prove the difference.
