Tigers Take Another Victory Over KCAC Rival By BOB LUDWIG Gazette Telegraph Sports Writer SALINA Kans. — It took a defensive effort by linebakcer Bruce Kolbezen to wake up a sluggish Colorado College offense Saturday and the Tigers never dozed again. Taking their 12th straight Kansas Collegiate Athletic Con­ ference foe in stride, the Tigers ran — or ts it passed — past host Kansas Wesleyan 52-7. The win gave the Tigers a 7-1 season record, equalling last year’s best performance in 20 years, and the Tigers still have one game remaining this sea- s'o n, Saturday against St. Mary’s of California in Moraga. The victory also is the sixth straight after the lone defeat in the second game of the year. Quarterback Randy Bobier highlighted the individual efforts as he set a modern day- passing mark of 302 yards in- j eluding four touchdowns — up- iping his season total in that de- jpartment to 11, also another irecord. I The senior thrower also broke another mark for season passing with 1236 and erased Art Stapp’s total offensive with Bobier’s at 1385. Commenting on his perform ance Bobier felt he “didn’t record Against the Coyotes, Bobier didn’t have to worry about anything, now 3-4-1 on the season, as Weslvans weak secondary throw the ball very well.

Then all hell broke lose.

(AP Wirephoto) Quarterback Rich Haynie, who had his most brilliant day only a week ago in leading Air Force to a 39-31 upset of Arizona State, couldn’t find his targets most of the afternoon as Army continually foiled Air Force scoring bids. Safety Mercer Ferguson and corner back Grover Dailey intercepted two passes each in leading the Black Knights’ defense while Hines ran over and through the Falcons for 202 yards and the game-winning touchdown. A 6 - 1, 205 - lb. tail back from Chester, Pa.. Hines took a p i t c h 0 u t from quarterback Kingsley Fink with 5:53 left in the game and rambled down the west sidelines for the game breaker. Hines got a block from full- b a c k Willy Thigpen which allowed him to turn the corner and go in unmolested on a play that covered 49 yards. Fink caught Air Force looking for a short yardage plunge on a third down and one yard situation. Instead of going up the middle where Army was successful most of the day, Fink went wide right. “He’s a big kid and you put him on a heavy track and he goes, ” said Air Force coach Ben Martin.” He played inspirational football.” and we couldn’t handle it. Hajmie matched the school record (25) for career touchdown passes with scoring strikes to tight end Greg Smith and split end Bob Farr, but he also got himself into the scoring books again. Last year, Haynie threw six interceptions in a 1614 loss to Penn State.

Pass Big Eight Championship either, and unless they can post impressive wins over both Kansas and Air Force in their last two games, they won’t have a prayer for a bowl bid this time around either. Coach Bob Devaney’s Nebraska Comhuskers sealed the Buffs’ doom for 1972 before a record crowd in Folsom Field and a national TV audience Sat- putting six points on the board almost before the last notes of the National Anthem had died away. With I-back Gary Dixon and fullback Bill Olds doing most of the work, Nebraska moved 53 yards on their first seven plays, when sophomore quarterback Dave Humm exploded over from the one for the TD. The kick was good, and the urday, by handing the Buffs a Buffs were down 7-0. 33-10 setback for their third loss On CU’s sceond play tailback Joel Carlson), the defense couldn’t stop Army’s offense. Army marched 90 yards in the second quarter after Dailey’s first interception, the only time the Knights scored following a turnover. Twice they missed field goals. Air Force came back in the third quarter following Jim Morris’ fumble recovery. Farr grabbed a deflected pass in the end zone to give Air Force a 14-10 lead that didn’t hold up. Air Force had numerous op- remaining in the third stanza and the Knights moved on top, 10-7. Late in the quarter Morris recovered Hines’ fumble at the Army 42. Haynie got his tying touchdown pass with 1:30 left in the third quarter with Farr grabbing the ball after Topping deflected it. Lawson’s kick put Air Force on top for the first time. 14-10. Earlier in the drive Farr had dropped a Haynie pass at the 25 (Continued on Page 6-F) of the campaign. Nebraska put the game on ice in the first quarter by running up 19 poiints, then added 14 more in the third stanza after allowing Colorado 10 by the half.
