Page 12 Garden City Telegrum Monday, November 14, 1977 Arkansas, Pitt Wage War for Orange By The Associated Press The best college football game of the year may be the one Arkansas and Pitt are waging, trying to wangle an invitation from the Orange Bowl. "That's where we want logo and we're doing everything we can lo show 'em we'd be a natural," Arkansas Alhletic Director Frank Broyles said after the eighth-ranked Razorbacks nipped No. 11 Texas A&M 26-20 Saturday on Ron Calcagni's tiebreaking 58- yard bomb to Robert Farrell with 1:41 remaining. And following lOth-ranked Pitt's 52-26 drubbing of Army, Athletic Director Cas Myslinski said he thought an agreement by which the winner of the Nov. 26 Pilt- Penn Slate game would go to ihe Orange Bowl and the loser lo another bowl "would work out real well." With fifth-ranked Notre Dame seemingly bound for the Cotton Bowl following a come- from-behind 21-17 triumph over No. 15 Clemson, the other bowls are waiting for Ihe Orange to make up its mind which way it will go. Everything should then fall into some kind of order. Indications are that the Orange will invite ninth-ranked Penn Stale, a 44-7 winner over Temple, even though the Orange Bowl has often said its policy is to go after the highest-ranking available learns. Right now, that's Arkansas as the opponent for the Big Eight king, but, a sourue close to the Orange Bowl told The Associated Press, "The problem with Arkansas is that it would not be a game of national interest." Now, lhal doesn't mean national football interest. In this case, national interest translates into tourists. "The question is why were the bowls formed," Ihe source said. "Ours was formed lo encourage tourism and most of our I ourisl s are from the Easl, even though Arkansas has said they'd bring 35,000 people and has guaranteed 22,500 lickel sales." In addition, NBC-TV, which airs Ihe Orange Bowl, was said lo favor a match between Penn Slate and the Big Eight champ — either third-ranked Oklahoma, which trounced Colorado 52-14, or No. 12 Nebraska, which blasted Kansas 52-7. The loser could wind up in the Galor Bowl. "If we invited Arkansas to play, say, Oklahoma," said Sooners Like Television Cameras KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — If Barry Switzer's theory holds true, the Nebraska Cornhuskers could be the victims of overexposure in a couple of weeks. Swilzer's Oklahoma juggernaut owns al least a tie for the Big Eight football crown in the wake of its 52-14 triumph over Colorado Slturday. And the Sooners could win Ihe title outright — and a trip 10 the Orange Bowl — with a victory over Nebraska Nov. 25. "It was a great way lo win on television," said Switzer of Oklahoma's televised demolition of Coloado. "We haven't lost on television yet this year, have we? Do we play Nebraska on television?" The answer, as it was in the case of the Buffaloes and, before lhat, Ohio State, is yes. And Switzer knew it. But the Cornhuskers, who knocked off Alabama earlier this year in a television game, will be Ihe sternest conference lest yel for the Sooners. Nebraska, getting a school- record 587 yeards total offense, tuned up in style Saiurday with a near identical 52-7 whipping of the Kansas Jayhawks. In other action, Missouri overcame a record 246 yards LIVE EVERY NITE GRAIN BIN "GENESIS" 9:00 to 1:00 rushing by Terry Miller lo clobber Oklahoma State, 4114, and Iowa Stale held off emotionally drained Kansas Stale, 22-15. Oklahoma, 6-0 in league play and 9-1 in all games, built a 35-7 halflime lead againsl ihe Buffaloes and finished the game with 487 total yards. Colorado, 2-3-1 and 6-3-1, hlped out with four interceptions and a pair of fumbles. "We were thinking about Nebraska before the first half was over," admitted Sooner running back Billy Sims, who had Ihree touchdowns. Summed up Colorado Coach Bill Mallory: "They are not only the best team we've played, but the way they played today, I don't think I here could be a bet 1 er t earn in the country." Switzer agreed that it was as near-perfect a game as the Sooners had played all year. And Tom Osborne was singing the same tune at Nebraska. "This team is running as good as we've ever done," Osborne said in the aftermath of a rout that included three TDs by Rick Berns. "Today is as good running as we've had in a long time, maybe ever. But we'll have lo show more belance against Oklahoma." Nebraska improved its record lo 5-1 and 9-2, while the loss dropped the injury- riddled and out-manned Jayhawks lo 1-4-1 and 2-7-1. Miller put on the single best running show of a stellar career against Missouri, breaking Bob Fenimore's 32- year-old single-game record of 241 yards for Ihe Cowboys. "Terry Miller is very great," said Missouri linebacker Russ Calabrese. "The best back I've ever seen. He'll have a good time in the pros." Bul his performance, which included a pair of short touchdowns, wasn't enough to with- siand a four-touchdown explosion by Ihe Tigers in Ihe final quarter. "I'd give up all my yards for a win," said Miller, as Missouri improved its record to 3-3 and 4-6, and Oklahoma Stale fell lo 2-4 and 4-6. "I understand how O.J. can Looking for the Right Seed Corn? Your Double- Circle Co-op Has It. If you're looking for the right seed corn to plant this year, look no farther than the Garden City Co-op. They've got single, 3-way and silage corns. One that's just right for your needs. CO-OP Corn Seed is quality seed, backed by the knowledge that comes from years of experience in all phases of crop production. The utmost in quality control and an active research and demonstration program are good reasons why you should plant CO-OP this year. So stop by the Garden City Co-op and ask about CO-OP Seed Corn. You'll find out why it's called the "Best Deal In The Country." Garden City Co-op COOP (Simpson) feels now. 1 sympathize with him." Iowa Stale, went inlo its game with Kansas State hoping to improve its chances for a bowl invitation. Kansas Stale, after a lu- muliuous week lhat saw the dismissal of Coach Ellis Rainsberger, was merely — bul desperately — looking for a victory. Conf All Games Oklahoma Nebraska Iowa SI.

We'd have to consider that from a national TV standpoint." Broyles, however, points out that because Arkansas and Oklahoma are neighboring states and haven't played since 1919, "It would be one of those bloodand-guts games just like Oklahoma-Texas, Arkansas-Texas or Ohio Stale- Michigan. State pride would be at stake and bragging rights would be involved." Asked if he would agree to ihe Nov. 26 winner going to Ihe Orange Bowl, Penn Slate Coach Joe Palerno would only say, "I'll cross lhal bridge when I come to it." He also said — are you listening, Orange Bowl? — lhal "this could end up being the best football team I've ever had." Meanwhile, it seemed certain that Notre Dame would be headed for Dallas when the bids go out next Saiurday at 6 p.m. Unless No. 1-ranked Texas, which i rimmed Texas Christian 4414, stumbles against Baylor, ihe Longhorns undoubtedly will retain their posiiion in The AP poll. The Sugar Bowl still was re- 1 "leaning" to the loser Hi nexi Saiurday's Ohio State- Michigan Big Ten shootout, i he winner of which goes I o I he Rose Bowl. In weekend action, boih teams spoiled the opposi- lion an early lead but fourth- ranked Ohio Stale whipped In- diana 35-7 and No. 6 Michigan clobbered Purdue 40-7. If Ohio Stale beats Michigan, the Wolverines could wind up third in the Big Ten, provided Michigan State defeais Iowa. Would Ihe Sugar Bowl want a third-place learn? Slay tuned. The host I earn will be Southeastern Conference champion Alabama, runner-up to Texas in the national rankings. The Crimson Tide walloped Miami of Florida 36-0. The one team in Ihe Top Ten lhal can't go to a bowl is No. 7 Kentucky, a 14-7 winner over Florida but currently on NCAA probation. If Arkansas doesn't gel the Orange Bowl bid, Ihe Razorbacks probably will forget about national rankings and opt for a fun-filled Fiesta Bowl trip against the Western Alhletic Conference champ. The leader is No. 17 Arizona Stale, a 24-13 winner over No. 13 Brigham Young. The Ohio Slate-Michigan winner, of course, goes to Ihe Rose Bowl against the Pacific- 8 representative. Fourteenth- ranked Southern California, the defending Pac-8 champ, bowed out of the picture by losing to Washington 28-10. But Washington is only lied for ihe lead with UCLA, which downed Oregon Stale 48-18 and can gel lo ihe Rose Bowl by beating USC even if Washington defeais Washingion Slate. Clemson, Ihe No. 15 team, is said to be on Gator Bowl hold as a standby"if 16th-ranked Florida Stale fails to beat San Diego State next weekend. The Seminoles got by Memphis State on.Saturday 30-9. Texas Tech, No. 18, whipped Southern Methodist 45-7 and will get a bid somewhere, perhaps the fledgling Hall of Fame Classic in Birmingham. Tech Coach Steve Sloan starred just up the road in Tuscaloosa. North Carolina, No. 19, also will go somewhere — Gator? Liberty? Tangerine? — following a 35-14 triumph over Duke in which Amos Lawrence set an Atlantic Coast Conference record as well as a national mark for a freshman by rushing for 286 yards. Finally, No. 20 Colgate celebrated its first-eve appearance in the ratings by outlasting Northeastern 48-39. A Tangerine Bowl scoul watched the Red Raiders bul I hey probably have a belter shoi al ihe Independence Bowl against Southland Conference champion Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs recorded a 28-10 trouncing of Southern Mississippi, which has beaten ihree SEC I earns, and have a 7-0-2 record. Colgate is 10-0, its winningest campaign ever. AUTO CARE TOTAL CAR CLEANING Service b Under coat 709 Jones Z7&5698 Monte Mauls Heights, 58-20 PHILLIPSBURG—Montezuma High School's Indians Saturday night advanced to the • sub-stale level of the Kansas eight-man football playoffs with a 58-20 regional blasting of Eastern Heights. The victory improved the Indians' record to 10-1. They will host Waconda East, 10-0, at 7:30 p.m. Friday in one of two sub-slate battles. Moscow, 10-0, will host Sharon, 10-0, in the other semi-final match. Montezuma zipped to a "14 : 8 lead in the first quarter when Troy Hawk plunged inlo Ihe end zone from one yard away. Brent McCune ran for a two- point conversion and Mon- lezuma had an 8-0 lead with 8:41 lefi in Ihe period. Then McCune, an all-state junior halfback, dashed 10 yards for a touchdown at the 5:55 mark for a 14-0 ad- vaniage. Eastern Heights, which finished its season al 9-1, creeped back lo within six points a minute and a half later when Gale threw a 40- yard scoring pass to Martin and Crandell ran for a two- point PAT. In the second quarter, Hawk ran five yards for a touchdown and McCune I wo yards for another for a 30-8 intermission cushion. Hawk accounted for a Iwo-point PAT after his TD, while Rick Thomas ran for two following McCune's bursi. McCune's TD capped a long drive which .consumed more than seven minutes. The Indians relieved all doubts in the third period: McCune dashed tow yards for a TD and Thomas latched onto a 17-yard scoring aerial from Hawk. Hawk and McCune added the PATs. Eastern Heights battled Montezuma on even terms in the final 12-minute segment, both squads scoring 12 points. Eastern Heights got TDs on passes from Gale lo Grady, the first 45 yards, the last five. McCune scored two more limes, on Ihree and 45 yard runs. All PAT attempts failed. Moniezuma recorded 18 first downs, 268 yards rushing and hii4-7 passes for 87 yards. Easiern Heights accounted for eight firsi downs, a meager eight yards on Ihe ground and connected on 9-30 aerials for 169 yards. Moniezuma suffered 47 yards in penalties, one in- erception and lost fumble. Heights was guilty of 61 yards in infractions, and lost three interceptions. The winners did not punt, while Heights booied four Mmes for a 39-yard average. McCune, who has rushed for more than 3,000 yards the lasi '•w» years, had his best night as an Indian. He carried Ihe ball 37 limes for 233 yards and five touchdowns. He has scored 32 TDs ihis season. Moniezuma head coach S eve Seirer said Thomas, Hawk and the entire Indian defensive line played well. Seirer said Waconda East siaris all seniors. Il is led by quarterback Breni Thull and running backs Barry McPeak and Brian Kosler.

They had Bogue (the eventual iilist) down 28-0 late in ihe game, but got beat in over- :ime. Wac.mda Easi has relinquished only 34 points in 10 games this season.
