Bowl Picture in Focus PEANUTS- < iil\ I Ylcfinmi Moiiilnx . N<>\ cinlicr 21. I •> < 7 !'„».• I I By The Associated Press And then there was one — the Texas Longhorns, college football's only unbeaten and untied major team. And then there were none — no more bowl openings ... and the Texas Longhorns, the nation's No. 1-ranked team, still aren't sure where they're going. Oh, Texas is going to a bowl, all right, either the Cotton or the Bluebonnel. The Longhorns trounced Baylor 29-7 Saturday but must tie or beat 14th-ranked Texas A&M next weekend — the Aggies drubbed Texas Christian 52-23 — for an outright Southwest Conference championship and a spot in the Cotton Bowl against sixth-ranked Notre Dame, which crushed 'Air Force 49-0. "We are not concerned that Notre Dame is going to be the guest team," said Texas Coach Fred Akers, who belter not be concerned about the Irish until he gels Texas A&M out of the way. "The only team I am concerned about being there is us and we are going to do everything we can to do just that. The Aggies are next." Texas was left with the only unblemished record among major teams when Colgate, winner of its first 10 games, bowed to Division II Delaware 21-3. At the same time, unbeaten but twice-tied Louisiana Tech was zonked by North Texas State 41-14, but no bowls came calling for the Mean Green Eagles despite a 9-2 record. By the way, North Texas owns a 24-13 victory over Southern Methodist while Texas defeated the Mustangs 30-14. Not that much difference, is there? Far from waiting a week, as many had suggested, the bowls all jumped over the weekend — for better or for worse — and every one of the 26 spots was filled by Sunday evening. This -s the line-up. with the latest results: Coiton Bowl — Sixth-ranked Noire Dame, a 49-0 winner over Air Force, vs. either Texas or Texas A&M. Sugar Bowl — Second- ranked Alabama, idle Saturday, vs. No. 4 Ohio Slate, a 14-6 loser to Michigan. Orange Bowl — Third- ranked Oklahoma or No. 11 Nebraska, who meet Friday, vs. No. 8 Arkansas, which battered SMU 47-7. Rose Bowl — Fifth-ranked Michigan vs. either No. 19 Washington, a 35-15 winner over Washington State, or No. 20 UCLA, which was idle. Fiesla Bowl — Ninth-ranked Penn State, idle, vs. No. 12 Arizona Slate or Colofado Stale, which upset ASU 25-14. Gator Bowl — No. 10 Pitt, idle, vs. No. 15 Clemson, which rallied in the final minute to nip South Carolina 31-27. Tangerine Bowl — No. 13 Florida Stale, which lost to San Diego Slate 41-14, vs. No. 16 Texas Tech, a 45-7 loser lo Houston. Liberiy Bowl — No. 18 North Carolina, which defeated Duke 16-3 and clinched the Ailanlic Coasl Conference crown, vs. the loser of Friday's OklahomaNebraska game. Asi ro-Bluebonnei Bowl — The Texas-Texas A&M loser vs. Washington, if the Huskies don't ge 1 lo the Rose Bowl, or Soul hern Cal, idle over ihe weekend. Sun Bowl — Louisiana Slate, which nipped Tulane 20-17, vs. Stanford, a 21-3 victor over California. Peach Bowl — North Carolina Slate, idle, vs. Iowa Stale, which lurned back Oklahoma Slate 21-13. Independence Bowl — Louisiana Tech vs. Louisville, which downed Indiana Stale 27-16. Hall of Fame Classic — Minnesota, a 13-7 winner over Wisconsin, vs. Maryland. And one of ihe reasons Arkansas is going to Ihe Orange Bowling Results Bowl is an old Razorback named Barry Switzer, who jusi happens to coach Oklahoma these days. "The selection of Arkansas will give us or Nebraska Ihe best possible opponent," said Swiizer, who captained Arkansas' 1959 Southwest Conference champs, spent six years there as an assistant coach and helped convince Ihe Orange Bowl lo bypass eager Penn Slate and Pit I, one of whom will be the mythical Eastern champion. "If Texas does lose lo Texas A&M or Noire Dame, and Alabama loses lo Ohio State — who we've played and beaten — we could have an opporlun- ily for another national championship," added Switzer, who led Oklahoma I o nal ional I it les in 1974-75. Texas, as usual, was led by Earl Campbell, who rushed for 181 yards as the Longhorns avenged last year's 20-10 defeal when ihe entire team was held to 14 yards on Ihe ground. Ohio Stale wasted countless opportunities in failing to score a touchdown against arch-rival Michigan for the second year in a row. Coach Woody Hayes got so upset when ihe Buckeyes fumbled away iheir lasl chance ai Ihe Michigan 8-yard line with four minuies lefl 1hat he uncorked a punch — pan ially blocked — a' an ABC-TV sideline cameraman. Elsewhere in The Associaled Press Top Twenty, sevenihranked Kentucky, ineligible for a bowl because of NCAA probation, ended a 10-1 season by nipping Tennessee 21-17. And No. 17 Brigham Young, which can <ake ihe Western Athletic Conference title but won't go 10 !he Fiesta Bowl because it's being played on a Sunday, edged Long Beach Slate 30-27 as sophomore sensation Marc Wilson completed 37 of 54 passes — 27 in Ihe first half to i ie an NCAA record — for 408 yards and four touchdowns. Elsewhere, Tennessee- Chalanooga, in its first Southern Conference season, clinched a share of the title by defeating Marshall 37-20 lo finish with an over-all 9-1-1 record. VMI, the other co- champ, won a nonleague encounter from Rhode Island 20-7. While Wilson was pulling on his usual passing show for BYU, the top rushing performance was turned in by Norihern Illinois' Allen Ross, who rambled for 254 yards in a 20-6 triumph over Ohio U. Thai gave Ross 1,043 for Ihe season and made him the sixth freshman in NCAA hislory lo rush for 1,000 yards. In other I radii ional battles, Indiana retained Ihe Old Oaken Bucket by downing Purdue for the second year in a row 21-10 — lhal lasl happened in 1946-47 — Mississippi Si ale beai Mississippi 18-14, Kansas defeal ed Missouri for ihe ihird siraighl lime 24-22 and Oregon whipped Oregon Si ale 28-16.
