BAHR None wr k5 iwsia ' "Chris liuhr. (hr ivy t'ool Cron Slide kirker, is probably jlie besl in (he country, college hr pro." I A BY Bill FISHER -1 Chris Bahr, sa js Penn State f oach Joe Patemo, is worth a touchdown a game." , More than that, Joe. - To Penn State Chris Bahr might be worth a spot in the Top Ten, a bowl bid, a 10-1 season. Chris Bahr is that good, Have you ever wondered where Penn State would be this Reason without Bahr? Where would Ford be without Kissinger? Where would Archie be .without Edith? Where would Schnitz be without Knepp? ' .Bahr, in seven games, has kicked 14 field goals, tops in the nation. Four of those field goals have been over 50 yards, three have been for 55 yards. He has accounted for 55 points (14 field goals, 13 extra points). He has tied the NCAA career record for field goals over 50 -yards (six, held by Jerry DePoyster formerly of Wyoming). , , ThereS more. Bahr (pronounced Bar) has has already set four Penn State records this season: longest field goal (55 yards, three times), most field goals in a season (14), most field goals in a career (31), and most points by kicking in a career (150). On top of all this he is averaging 39 yards a punt and 64 yards a kickoff. ' Not bad at all for a fellow who is five-feet, nine-inches and weighs 162 pounds. Paterno calls him the best kicker in the country. Ive never seen a kicker so accurate from so faraway. - West Virginia coach -Bobby Bowden calls him, an intimi-, dating factor. Syracuse coach Frank Maloney calls him, a real difference in a ball game. Other opponents call him a lot of other things. Bahr is a senior, the son of Penn State soccer coach Walt Bahr. He grew up in suburban Philadelphia, was a soccer star in high school, also a football kicker, and for three years at Penn State was a three-time soccer All-America. He isnt playing soccer this year at State because last year he turned pro, with the Philadelphia Atoms, and promptly was selected Rookie of the Year in the North American Soccer League. Under recently revised NCAA rules a college player can turn pro in one sport without it af- feeling his eligibility in another. Thus Bahr could not play soccer this season at State, but he is still eligible for football. . Bahr, a biology major, says, yes, he would like to be drafted by the NFL, and he undoubtedly will be because his soccer-style kicks are long and true. The accompanying chart shows his kicks this years. Listed in order, his field goal yardage is 55,55,55,52,45,39,37,35,33,31, 29, 25, 25 and 21 yards. He has missed rune field goals, but only one under 40 yards, a 26-yarder in the opening game against Temple. He missed once at 61 yards, once at 57, twice at 56, once at 52. He has also kicked 13 out of 14 extra points. He is punting for the first time this year, averag- Bahr's Kicking Record ing 39 yards a punt. Only 14 of his 33 punts have been returned, and for an average of only four yards per return. Kicldng off, he brings ohs and ahs from the crowds prodigious cannon shots into the end zone. Bahr is averaging 64 yards a kickoff. That means his average kick, average!, is sailing four yards deep into the end zone. He has kicked a number out of the end zone. Against West Virginia he kicked one through the uprights, 70 yards away. Only 20 of his 41 kickoffs have been returned (for an average of 18.4 yards a return). Bahr has four games remaining, (counting Saturdays game with Army), to continue his assault on Penn State and NCAA records. In addition to the four records he has already set this season, he set a single game record last year of four field goals in one game (against Pitt). He kicked three this year against Ohio State and West Virginia. CHRIS BAHR and 39, one out of four between the 40 and 49, four out of eight between the 50 and 59, and none out of one from 60 plus. Key: FG-A field goals-attempts. Yards, distance of field goals, PAT, points kicked after touchdown, P-Avg. number of punts, average of each. KO-Avg., number of kickoffs, average of each. Bahr has not done it the easy way. He has yet to try a field goal from inside the 20. He is four out of five between the 20 and 29, five out of five between die 30 There is even more to it than that. He makes people play a different defense, says Paterno. Chris puts pressure on the other team because when you get past the 50, they gamble to get you back out of field goal range. And when they dont, chances are that Chris Bahr is going to put three points on the board. Temple Drubs Delaware 45-0 NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Fullback Tom Duff scored three touchdowns and quarterback Pat Carey ran for two more as Temple walloped Delaware 45-0 Saturday. Carey scored on a one-yard plunge, Duff scored on runs of three and 10 yards, and Don Bit-terlich booted a 40-yard field goal in the first quarter to give Temple a 24-0 advantage. Delaware was without its starting quarterback, Billy Zwaan, who suffered a shoulder bruise last week when the Hens lost to Lehigh. Ben Belicic started for Delaware but left after being shaken up in the second period. Third string quarterback Jim Maskas came in but he, too, was hurt. That left sophomore Jim Taylor calling signals. The Owls scored once in each of the last three periods. Duff got his third TD after breaking free over tackle and racing 73 yards. Carey bowled across from the one. And Rocco Luciano wa4 in the end zone to pull down a 15: yard strike from backup quarter back Bob Baker. f :-J The win was Temples second against five losses while Dela- ware is 4-3. The loss hampers Delawares chances of being invited to the post-season small college playoff games. 1 It was the first time since 1968' .the Blue Hens had been shut out and was the worst Delaware loss since a 52-0 defeat by Army in-1933. , -1 . i Tempi 24 I J 7 4 5 Delaware 0 0 0 0-0 Tem Carey 1 run (Bitterllch kick) Tamp Duff 3 run ( Bitterllch Kick) ,j i Tem Duff 10 run (Bitterllch kick) Tem -FG 40 Bitterllch I WJt Tem -Duff 73 run (Bitterllch kick) Tem Carey I run (Bitterllch kick) SI Tem Luciano 15 pass from Baker Bit-1 terllch kick Attendance 23,042 First Downs Rushes-Yards Passlno Yards Return Yards Passes Punts Fumbles-lost Penalties-Yards Temple 22 52-225 222 41 16-26-2 5-35 5-r 8 82 I Hi Dei? 4541 1227 92, 6-21-1 " 10-39 J 51, in 1 Bucknell Edges Gettysburg C IS. Griffin Sets All-Time Rushing Record WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. ( AP) Archie Griffin set an all-time college rushing record and Pete Johnson moved two steps closer to a Big Ten touchdown record Saturday as topranked Ohio State knocked off pesky Purdue 35-6. It Griffin, held to 36 yards in the first half, finished with 130 yards on 20 carries to push his career total to 4,730 yards. The old record of 4,715, by Ed Marinaro at Cornell, fell midway through the fourth quarter when Griffin took a handoff from quarterback Cor nelius Greene and burst 23 yards up the middle. It was the Heisman Trophy winners final carry of the day. The senior tailback also extended to 28 his record streak of regular-season games with 100 yards or more rushing. Johnson, the Buckeyes bruising fullback, scored on runs of 60 and three yards to give him 18 touchdowns this season, just two shy of the Big Ten record set in 1972 by Ohio State fullback Champ Henson. Purdue workhorse Mike Pru itt piled up 127 yards on 24 carries but the Boilermakers, despite two drives to the Ohio State 10-yard line, had to settle for a pair of first-half field goals by Steve Schmidt. Ohio State, 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the Big Ten, ground out 355 yards rushing to 185 for the Boilermakers, who dropped to 1-6 overall and 1-3 in the confer- fUVIid west!

The Philadelphia 76ers opened their season as a vastly improved team, but still not considered championship caliber. - - The Flyers are going with virtually the same lineup that carried them to file Stanley Cup last year. Newcomers are Mel Bridgeman, their number one draft choice, and Lariy Goodenough, from their Richmond farm team. . ' The 76ers have added scoring (George McGinnis from the ABA), and youth, (Darryl Dawkins, their number one draft choice out of Evans High School in Orland, Florida), hv The Sixers won six out of eight exhibition games.

(AP) -Wingback Jim Smith burst ?7 yards for a touchdown on the second play of the game and Rob Lytle scored four TDs Saturday to lead seventh-ranked Michigan to a 55-7 Big Ten football clubbing of Indiana. It was the 40th consecutive game without a loss at home for the Wolverines, who now stand 4-0 in the conference and 5-0-2 over-all. Indiana, 2-5 overall, slipped to 1-3 in the league. Michigan, which beat Northwestern 69-0 last week, has outscored opponents 224-7 in its last four home conference NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A Swarming Oklahoma defense, spearheaded by 260-pound Leroy Selmon, pressured Iowa State into several early turnovers that put the Cyclones in a 26-0 hole at the half as the second-ranked Sooners plowed to a 39-7 triumph in a Slopply played Big Eight football game Saturday. All-American halfback Joe Washington scored on runs of three and six yards as Oklahoma, despite a school record 13 Tumbles, extended college footballs longest winning streak to 27 games. The Sooners have not lost in 35 consecutive contests. Oklahoma jumped out ahead 17-0 after the first quarter. All the scoring was set up by Iowa State fumbles and the Oklahoma drives covered only 13, 49 and 45 yards. Iowa State coughed up the ball on its own 13 on its first possession and the agile Selmon pounced on it. Washington crashed into the end zone on the third play from scrimmage. A vicious blow applied by Sooner cornerback Jerry Anderson to Iowa State flanker Luther Blue gave the ball to the Sooners at the I-State 49 midway in the first period. It took Oldahoma only three plays to score. Fullback Jimmy Lutrell powered seven yards, then Washington galloped 31 yards to the 11 on his longest run of the season. Quarterback Steve Davis slipped around right end from - there for the score. Later in the quarter, Tony Di-Rienzo booted his 10th straight field goal of the year, tying a school record. Again the score 'was set up by a Cyclone fumble at their own 45.

Smiths score, the sixth longest from scrimmage in Michigan history, came on a reverse down the right sideline. Seven minutes later, tailback Gordon Bell sprinted 53 yards off left tackle for another touchdown, as, the Wolverines began imitating their last slaughter. Lytle, who played at both quarterback and tailback, scored three touchdowns in the second quarter, two on oneyard plunges and another on a seven-yard sweep. He also scored on a 12-yard sweep in the fourth quarter. Freshman fullback Russ Davis scored on a one-yard plunge and threeyard run in the third period for Michigan. Indiana quarterback Terry Jones pushed over from the one in the final period for the first TD rushing against Michigan in nine conecutive conference games. LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -Vince Ferragamo passed for two touchdowns (and John OLeary ran for two Saturday, powering Nebraskas fourth-ranked Comhuskers to a 63-21 Big Eight Conference football victory over a lOth-ranked Colorado team that was plagued by penalties and turnovers. Colorado scored first when quarterback Dave Williams romped 74 yards on the third play from scrimmage. But from then on, the Buffs could do little right as eight Colorado turnovers led to six Nebraska touchdowns. After the first Buff score, Nebraska, 7-0, tallied on three consecutive possessions. Ferragamo hit Bobby Thomas with a 42-yard touchdown pass, OLeary scored from 10 yards out with 8:28 remaining in the first period, and a Buff fumble set the Huskers up on the 31 seven seconds later. Monte An thony popped over from the one seven plays after that. (I your ymegu MAf!I? LANCASTER YORK HANOVER 1107 Enterprise Rd. E.

STAHL MOTORS, ItlC. 1313 Manheim Pike Lancaster Ph. 299-2393 end Charley Douglass for Missouris second touchdown late in the second period. Illinois, 21-19 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Junior college transfer Curt Brown took advantage of his first starting assignment and galloped for two touchdowns, sparking 15th-ranked Missouri to a 35-3 rout of undermanned Kansas State in Big Eight Conference football Saturday. The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Brown, filling in for injured Tiger tailback Tony Galbreath, flashed six yards in the opening period to cap an 82-yard Missouri drive after Kansas State had taken a 3-0 lead. In the third quarter, after his third-down runs helped set up Missouris second touchdown. Brown rambled 27 yards through a sagging Kansas State defense for his second score. Quarterback Steve Pisar-kiewicz, following a slow start, delivered a 10-yard pass to tight Nebraska 63, Colorado 2 1 EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Quarterback Kurt Steger threw three second-half touchdowns, the first off a faked field goal play, as Illinois time from behind Saturday to upset 16th-ranked Michigan State 2119 in a Big Ten college football battle. Stegers aerial display gave the Dlini a 21-13 lead before the Spartans roared back in the final minutes to score. But they failed to convert a two-point extra-pont attempt. Illinois was shut out in a lackluster first half as the Spartans opened up a 13-0 lead on a touchdown by quarterback Charlie Baggett and two field goals by Hans Nielsen. But the dormant Dlini offense erupted in the third quarter on Stegers arm. After Nielsens second kick, Steger hit tight end Joe Smalzer for a 22-yard gain and split end Mike Sullivan for 11 more. THe MSU defense rose up to stop the drive but Steger yanked the ball from in front of the foot of placekicker Dan Beaver and fired it to Phil Viemeisel in the comer of the end zone from 22 yards out to make it 13-7. Moments later, MSU tailback Rich Baes fumbled at his own 30 and Bruce Thornton recovered for Illinois. After tailback Lonnie Perrin carried the Illini to the 12, Steger tossed a scoring strike to a diving Smalzer in the end zone. GETTYSBURG (AP) - Senior linebacker Daran Shepard picked up a blocked punt and ran 21 yards for the winning touchdown to lead Bucknell to a 14-7 football win over Gettysburg Saturday. Shepard ruined Gettysburgs homecoming after junior linebacker Karl Knonederg blocked the punt by Gettysburgs Tony Pantaleoni with 7:03 remaining in the third quarter. Gettysburg missed its chance to take a halftime lead after driving to the Bucknell two-yard line with 35 seconds remaining in the second period. Pantaleonis field goal attempt from the 20 was wide. , Gettysburg opened the scoring when halfback Jay Howell swept around left end for an eight-yard score on the muddy field to cap an 80-yard drive. ut Bucknell took the ensuing' kickoff and drove 74 yards in 14 plays with fullback Rick Waldrop diving over from the one yard line. Bucknell is now 24 on the; year. Gettysburg is 2-4. t .1 The one bright spot for Gettysburg was halfback Kirby Scott who rushed for 104 yards, thej third straight week he went over the 100-yard mark. ; . S With three games remaining,! Scott has 572 yards and a chance to break Gettysburg's single sea, son rushing record of 752 yards, set in 1949. , Bucknell Gettysburg 8-14 Ot- 7i Gelt Powell 8 run (Panteleoni kick). Buck Wardrop 1 run (Horning kick) Jack Dempsey Hospitalized Nebraska added another three scores in the second quarter. A Buff penalty set up a one-yard plunge by Tony Davis and a fumble preceded a Ferragamo-to-Brad Jenkins five-yard scoring pass. Colorado mishandled the ensuing kickoff and Nebraska recovered on the Buffs one. OLeary scored from there, giving Nebraska 42-7 halftime lead. Colorado lost the ball on fumbles and a pass interception on their first four third-quarter possessions. Three of the turnovers led to Husker scores. Anthony scored from the one, Gary Higgs from the two and Dave Gillespie from the 14. Colorado scored twice in the third quarter against Nebraska reserves. Williams crashed in from the six and Jim Kelleher scored from the three. NEW YORK (AP) - Jack Dempsey, the former heavyweight boxing champion known as the Manassa Mauler, was reported in stable condition at New York University Hospital Saturday. He was admitted earlier in the day for observation after becoming ill at his midtown Manhattan apartment. A hospital spokesman declined to disclose the nature of the illness at the request of Dempseys family, but family sources said he may have suffered a mild stroke. Dempsey, 80, won the heavyweight title on July 4, 1919, with a third-round knockout of Jess Willard in Toledo, Ohio, He reigned as one of the most popular athletes of the era even after he lost his title on Sept. 23, 1926, in a 10-round decision to Gene Tunney and failed to regain the crown a year later in the controversial long count 10-round rematch. dutchorama: TOURS ' ' presents PHILA.
