Sooners Sock Huskers, 34-6 H CONTINUIO PROM Pl M neitiwtgly ior a solid 41.6-.Hne, was playing lonesome rd; aVerage. Scoring In every quarter trlth its well balanced ityle, he Sooners rudely Jnrred Nebraska at the very outset, lmost,s it had done the reyiqui week against Mis-ourii"- The game was only 2:40 Id when the northerners' Underella story began to ade. After going no place on lie game's first offensive eries, the Huskers tried to mnt. But Jim Baifico, tak-ig;a high pass from cen-;r, never got it off. John Flynn blocked it, -eon Cross and Flynn boxed he ball around inside the 20 ard line and eventually Jewt Burton made the re-overy, all the way down on he one, this on a play fatnl-y starting for Nebraska at ts 34-yard stripe. Sooners Gamble Grisham rammed left juard for the score' and ilacekicking artist Butch Wetcall started a perfect 4-ior-4; extra point afternoon, fiving OU a 7-U jump end, all by himself in the end zone. Metcalf polished off his! flawless point - after - touchdowns same and NU dangled! on the ropes at 28-0. Not until late In this third; quarter did Nebraska fight past the 50, but when it did the Huskers escaped the embarrassment of a shutout. Claridge finally found thej aerial range and his receiv-i finally began gluing! onto the ball. 1 Huskers Stalled He whipped the ball to Bill Comstock for 20 lengths to the OU 35 and later to Mike Eger, for 16 more. This put the ball that took wings for each side on the 16. For the last 11 yards Clar idge again singled out Eger who somehow made the catch with two Sooners try ing to pin him as third quarter time ran out. Claridge. trying for a two - point conversion, missed as the score lodged at 28-6. NU menaced a bit, start ing the last quarter, chiefly due to Claridge's 20-yard aerial to Johnson but the M''thera'"wM"a-fuTnTKgiarive-stauea on tne Big Kea joints-ir came just before in :eririission on OU's clock )eatihg 70-yard, 12 -play scoring sashay. The sun :ame out' momentarily on in otherwise; 'overcast day md . Oklahoma again varmed 'to: its task, playing n 6C-degree weather. The;near capacity mob oared its approval as OU r a m b led at midfield n fourth down with Grisham making it with room to pare. Thai K:om((i to be ihe im-ietus the Big Red needed.

Rudy Johnson 8ppM-d to lave Vp'orte'ff ield covered "all he way but .the Sooner; end nade a leaping, twisting mt-of-this-World grab with mly-Vl:22 left - to half time, SoNebraska was on the skids at 14-0 whereas it would have returned to Oweri!Field after rest time, very, much in contention lagging only 7-0. For this : first half the HuskersV multiple offense n e v e r mounted anything faintly resembling a threat and they never nudged be yond the 50. It was in the third quart that the Nebraska bubble burst as if pierced by an poms power Past K-State In 30-6 Rout SOUTHERN GAL EDGES WW Flynn Spectacular The; Huskers' death knell was sounded when sureshot Deere took his furious offensive machine upstairs again for two touchdowns to place the issue far yond Nebraska's reach. First it was a 76-yard quickie requiring only four plays after Claridge punted 58Nards to the Oklahoma 24. Deere threw long and true to-Flynn, who made a beau tiful over - the - head catch down the west sideline. This air bomb covered 40 yards to the Husker 24. Deere had found Nebras ka's most glaring soft spot On, the next play he fired again to Porteriield and again it was quite a reception, barely within playing terrain. Oranges Falling So there it was, 21-0, and Bob Devaney's invader not even close to being out of tfie woods. rFive minutes later and reil; live oranges began popping around the stands with OU in possession of cinch 28-0 advantage. tThis surge spanned 55 yards in but six plays. Clar idge punted short to Melvin Sahdersfeld on the Soon er 45. .Looney caught another Deere strike for 10 yards, then Rick McCurdy hauled down another throw by Monte on the NU 13 but the Sooners drew a 15-yard clipping penalty. " Nebraska Drives .So what did it all mean? This , took a little longer, that Is all. ;Qn the Husker 26, Deere again exercisea nis trusty arm. Allen Bumgardner, a member of the alternate And still the relentless Sooners weren't quite through. The starting backfield launched the game's final touchdown and the three deeps rushed in to mop up on Nebraska, getting across the goal with less than a half-minute left. Dempsey Bangs 'Em This was pretty much a return to the more familiar grind-it-out routine, until the very last. Dempsey got in some tell ing ground licks. New at the post, Norman Smith passed to Greg Burns for the last 14 lengths but the soph made the throw beyond the scrimmage line. So Oklahoma proceeded to do it all over again, the same way, and made stick this time. On this historic afternoon ! a league title, bowl bid and higher national rank than 10th place, this simply was the Big Red's own little cup of tea, from start finish. V Sooners Beat Clock It was fourth down and 14 yards to go for the TD, and the Oklahomans did. Smith threw all the way in. to Gary Wylie, again the clock had been shaded by a wnisker and Nebraska beat en, 34-6. by a country mile it mattered not that Smith fumbled the snapback, pre venting George Jarman try his placekicking i Wilkinson had an easy path ior nis trip to Devaney and tne traditional hand shake. Approximately enough, even this incident .came up in me air, with Bud atop his troops' shoulders. M MOB M Dave Ilannnh booted the placement nnd it was 7-0. Again the Knnsnns were unable to mount an offensive with the klckoff and Cat punter Bobby Ballard punted 33 yards to tne u&u 24 where the' ball sailed out of bounds. It took the Cowboys 17 plays to score as power drives at the Wildcat tackles ate up yardage in 3, 4 and 5-yard chunks. Big gainer was an 11-ynrd crash through left tackle by. George Thomas. Thomas Goes In The hard - hitting fullback got a first down on the Cat four and, three plays later. he bashed right tackle for a scant yard and the second OSU touchdown with 12:40 gone in the opening chapter Hannah goaled again and it was 14-0. The Cowboys forced a Wildcat punt midway In the second quarter but the Snap from center sailed over the head of Ballard who raced back, picked up: the ball at his 19 and passed to nan back Joel S e a r 1 e s who wasn't stopped until Jackson nudged him out of bounds on the OSU 26. Miller Hit But there wereineligible receivers downfield and the Cats drew a penalty back to their own 25. This time Ballard's mint was weak and the Oklahomans took over on the Kansas State 41 This time it took eight plays for the Pokes to score, A 13-yard Miller - to - Don Brewington pass was tne bie eainer. McFarland got the counter from three yards as he spun through tacKte ano aciuauy backed across the goal line with the ball with 8:57 gone Hannah's placement sailed wide and it was 20-0 The Kansas State score followed a wide field goal try by Hannah from Cat 26. LOS ANGELES Wl -Southern California's unde-rented Trojans, the nation's No. 1 football team but a benten one for more than three quarters, crushed the amazing Bruins of UCLA with two touchdowns in the final period Saturday to win 14-3 and roll on to the Rose Bowl. Thrown back in a desper ate touchdown bid at the one by the gallant and underdog Bruins, the Trojans surged back with fullback Bon Wilson smashing the final two yards for the winning touchdown. In the final few minutes of the game, quarterback Pete Beathard led Southern Cat 82 yards against the over manned Bruins for the second touchdown. It was the ninth straight victory without a tie In the finest season for the Trojans In 30 years and automatically cinched their Big Six championship. The victory ushered them to the Rose Bowl for the 13th time In the history of the Cardinal and Gold. Their Big Ten opponent in the New Year's Day classic will be Wisconsin. Executive director Tom Hamilton of the Athletic Association of Western Univer sities, watching the game from the press box, issued the formal statement about the Trojans' berth in the Rose Bowl. i Gome In Flgw rtt UCLA . SVi mini vorJeoo jjj $j A crowd of 8G.740, the largest to see a college; game here since 1955, watched this annual renewal of crosstown rivalry in Memorial Coliseum. For most of the game, It appeared1 that UCLA and Its sophomore place - kicker, Larry Zeno, might pull off the totally unexpected. The slender, 180 - pound quarterback put UCIsA ahead with 57 seconds left In the first half with a 35-yard field goal. Had it stood up, Zeno could have claimed a remarkable distinction. Ho would have knocked two top-rated tenms out , of the top spot in football rankings In one season. Last October 6, Zeno's field goal in the final 1:35 defeated the then No. 1 rated team, Ohio State, 9-7. in the Coliseum. The field goal against USC was no fluke. UCLA marched 71 yards in 12 plays, 10 of them for short phunks of ground against the powerful Trojan defense When the drive was final ly stopped on the 13, and UCLA was thrown back the 18. Zeno kicked the three-pointer. Late in the third quarter, the Trojans, forced to punt from their own 39. ;got a break when Ezell Singleton fumbled and Ken Del Conto recovered for Southern Cal on the UCLA 22. The Trojans slammed down to the 3-yard-line, but on fourth don and 2 to go, Wilson was stopped on the 1, inches short of the first down. UCLA punted on first down, and the Trojans oe-gan again from the Bruin 26. It took a spectacular pass on fourth down and 2 to go, Nelsen to Willie Brown for 22 yards to the UCLA 2, set up the all-important TD. Wilson made it on the first lunge. LIS Flvnn. Porlerlleld.

Late in the third quarter, K-State gambled with a pass on fourth down and the Cow boys got the ball on their own 49. Ten running plays carried to the K-State three but an offside penalty stalled the Oklahomans and Hannah booted a 27 - yard field goal to make it 23-6 with 13:46 gone. Halfback Mutual Bryant, intercepted a Corrigan pass and sprinted back 16 yards to the midfield stripe. Tne Cowboys covered the distance in eight plays, the payoff punch a 22-yard pass from Miller to end Bill Lend ing. The Hannah placement sailed wide and it was 30-6 with only a minute and a half left in the game. OKLAHOMA STATK LE-Raploglt, Moore, Newberry, orew- "llf-Howard. Russell, Hammond. C Sellers.

That was the year that El Reno wiped out a 20-0 deficit in the closing 13 minutes to defeat a Lawton team (21-20) which' has been regarded as one of the best Oklahoma prep; elevens of all time. Clinton, Woodward Play A Lawton football triumph would give the school a vir- j tual sweep of law scnooi-; boy honors.

LOUIS Iff) St. Louis University won its third NCAA soccer championship in four , years Saturday by defeating; Maryland, 4-3. kicked a 26-yarder for Kan sas with 2:36 remaining in the Big Eight game. A crowd of 46,000 watched ie contest, a record fot both the" series and Memor ial Stadium. Missouri, favored by 6y2 points over Kansas, still re- mained m contention lor bowl invitation despite the tie and a 7-1-2 season. The Tigers voted after the game to accept a bid, if offered, and the Bluebonnet Bowl committee from Houston, was high on the list of those making feelers. Coach Dan Devine said there will be an announce- game Sunday. Defense was the big thing Saturday's battle, with both teams being held to less than their usual offense production. Missouri picked up 137 yards on the ground and 19 in the air. Kansas gained 191 rushing and 17 passing. Missouri's highly rated ground game, which had averaged 268 yards per con test, got the favorites no farther than their own 48-yard line in the first half. Kansas, which completed the season with a 6-4 record, made two scoring threats in the first half. But Missouri squelched both drives. Missouri outplayed the visitors in the opening quarter, driving to three first downs to none for Kansas. But Kansas opened up in the start of the second period, driving to the Missouri 24-yard line.
