POKES POP K-STATE, 30-6 Point Parade By Wally Wallis (Staff Writer) MANHATTAN, Kan. Playing under wraps, Okla homa State over - powereq hapless Kansas State; 30-6 in a Big Eight game Detore a meager crowd of 3,500 here in Memorial Stadium Saturday. The Oklahomans used power slants inside and outside the tackles as they completely overpowered the Wildcats from the outset with two touchdowns in the first quarter and scores in every period. The Cowboys passed .only nine times with quarterback Mike. Miller connecting four times for 38 yards. His final pitch was a 22-yard six ,-point strike to end Bill Lem-ing in the fourth quarter for the fourth and final OSU counter. Three slashing fullbacks- Bob Adcock, George Thom as and Bill McFarland powered the Oklahoma State offense, each scoring once as the trio piled up 175 rushing yards on 38 carries. McFarland was top gainer of the game with 93 yards on 19 tries. Thomas got 55 on 15 while Adcock, slightly injured early in the game, picked up 27 in four charges as the conservative Cowboy fullback attack proved far more than the K a n s a n s could handle. The Oklahomans pounded out 20 of their 22 first downs on the ground while Kansas State, limited to 53 yards rushing and 34 passing, had only eight first downs, two of them by penalty and two others by passing. Guards Leland Slack; Mike Upton, Pete Payne and Rex Russell led the determined O-State defense .with ends Marcus Hendricks and Rodney Replogle and tackles Bob Howard, ' 'John Ed Gardner and Rodney Cut- singer lending stout assist ance. The victory gave the Oklahomans sixth place in the conference regardless of what happens next Satur day against Oklahoma. They now have a 2-4 Big Eight record and a 4-5 una rk for the season. The defeat was the 18th straight for the Wildcats and left them with a 0-10 sea sorial mark and art 0-7 rec ord in the conference. The smallest Memorial Stadium crowd since World War II watched the Oklahomans score the first two times they got the ball on drives of 49 and 71 yards without attempting ;hn aerial and then settled down to keeping pressure ; on the Cats to force breaks which created scoring ppportuni- ties the rest of the way. 'The Kansans scored with less than two minutes remaining in the first half on a weird play that looked like a fumble but was ruled an intercepted pass. ; The Cowboys were riding along on a comfortable 20-0 lead when a clipping penal ty on a punt return set them back to their own 34. Miller dropped back to pass first down and as he raised, his arm Cat end Dennis Winfrey hit Miller's upraised arm. The ball squirted back ward to the OSU 27 where 206-pouhd tackle Ken Nash took it in mid-air and rambled unmolested 27 yards for the six-pointer. hard Cowboy rush on K-State quarterback Larry Corrigan forced a wild pass on the two-point conversion attempt. The Cowboys stopped the Kansans with the opening kickoff and forced a feeble punt which safetyman Billy Parent ran back four yards to the Cat , 49. In three plays, the Okla homans had the game out of the reach of the Wildcats. Adcock blasted right tack-1 le for three yards to start! the march moving and halfback Tommy Jackson, who gained 66 yards on a half-! in carries, flashed off left tackle for 31 yards for first down on the Kansas State 15 before defender Gary Hoinz bumped him out of bounds. Adcock drove straight up the middle the last 15 yards shaking off at least four would-bc tacklers enroute to score with 1:33 gone in the game.
