The triumph upped the Javelinas’ record to 2-0 and lengthened their winning streak to 16 games. Abilene fell to 1-1. It was the Lone Star Conference opener for both schools. A&I was NAIA champion in 1974 while the Wildcats enjoyed that distinction in 1973. Although Collins’ run was the decisive blow, the turning point may well have come early in the fourth quarter, when the Wildcats had a first-and-10 at the Javelina four but could not punch it over. John Perkins gave Abilene a 6-0 lead in the first quarter, taking an 82-yard scoring strike from quarterback Jim Reese.

Reserve QB paces Ponies HOUSTON (AP) Third-string quarterback Chuck Benefield whipped Southern Methodist to 12 first- half points and Arthur Whittington scored two crucial second-half touchdowns to lead the Ponies to a 26-16 victory over the fumbling University of Houston Saturday night. The Cougars rallied to a 19-16 defeat late in the third quarter but a pass interception by SMU’s Mickey Earley killed a Houston scoring drive and set up the Ponies’ final toucdown.

(AP)—Quarterback Terry Luck tossed three touchdown passes to lead fourth-ranked Nebraska to a 5614 college football victory over the error-plagued Horned Frogs of Texas Christian University Saturday. Luck’s aerial attack took the Frogs by surprise, but TCU’s defenders were victimized on the ground as well as in the air. Rout The Com huskers scored on their first two possessions, and the first three Nebraska scores were set up by TCU turnovers.

But Tulsa came back on its first possession of the second half. Facing third and 18, Jeb Blount dropped back and spotted Steve Lar gent behind the Razorback secondary. Blount laid the ball over Largent’s shoulder at the Arkansas 25 and Largent completed the 75-yarc scoring play to make it 17-13. > Arkansas stemmed the momentum, driving 78 yards in five plays on its next possession. The big play was Forte’s 54 run to the Tulsa 16. Eckwood scored three plays later from the one. Eckwood, who entered the game averaging 149.5 yards rushing a game, netted 146 yards on 19 carries, and was only one man from going all the way on several oceas- sions. Forte, who was averaging 118 yards a game, gained 131 on 17 carries. Arkansas, a 17-point fa- voritie, is 2-1 for the season. The Razorhacks open Southwest Conference play next week against Texas Christian. Tulsa, 1-2, returns to Missouri Valley Conference action against New Mexico State. The score was 24-13 when Tommy Harris intercepted a Ron Hickerson pass late in the third period and returned it 21 yards to the Tulsa 20. Scott Bull, filling in for the injured Arkansas quarterback Mike Kirkland, scored standing up from the two. Injury Kirkland suffered a strain knee on Arkansas’ final play of the first half. Tulsa outplayed Arkansas in the early going. In fact, the Hurricane got field goals of 38 and 24 yards from Ronnie Cruse before Arkansas ran its second offensive play. Tulsa took the opening kickoff and drove smartly down the field, but two penalties stalled the march, and the Hurricane settled for three points. Eckwood fumbled on Arkansas’ first play and Tulsa was in business at the Arkansas 31. Minutes later, Cruse made it 6-0. Then Arkansas’ defense began to assert itself.
