Grouped at 2-nn(ler 69 over McKay Disagrees With Odds LOS ANGELES (UPI) University of Southern California, a magnificient football machine that ripped through 12 opponents last season, opens defense of its national championship Saturday night and the No. 1 rated Trojans are three- touchdown favorites against Arkansas. "I don't think these odds are in line," said USC coach .John IvIcKay, whose team whipped the Razorbacks 31-10 in its first game last year at Little Rock. "I know Frank Broyles has a young team but I also know that Frank Broyles isn't in the habit of reci'uiting bad athletes. I expect a tough game." McKay, 50, will find it hard to top 1972, a season his Trojans climaxed by smashing Woody Hayes and Ohio State into the ground 42-17 in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. Nebraska served notice last weekend that it wants to take away USC's national title by trouncing a highly regarded UCLA team 40-13 at Lincoln. The Bruins are expected to come in second to USC in the Pacific-8 race. "To win the national title," McKay said, "you have to have the right people, have the right schedule, have people knocked off you don't play and be a little lucky. "We have the age old worry about guys who played well as sophomores and juniors realizing that the roa.son they played well is because they worked hard. "They can't stand still. They have to gel better. We won't go too long with a player who's done it before and isn't doing it now. Complacency ruins football teams." McKay's teams have won three national crowns in the past 11 seasons and the Trojans do have the nucleus of their 1972 squad back, including two second team All-Americas as sophomores —tailback Anthony Davis and linebacker Richard Wood. In McKay's I formation, the tailback is practically the whole offense and Davis, a Heisman Trophy candidate, compares with two of USC's great runners of the recent past — O.J. Simpson and Mike Garrett, who were Heisman winners. He gained 1,191 yards and scored 17 touchdowns rushing as a sophomore, the first Trojan sophomore to hit the magic 1,000-yard mark. tAlso in the backfield is Lynn Swann, a flanker who grabbed 27 passes for 543 yards and three touchdowns last season. Swann, a senior, is a Heisman Trophy candidate. the 6,6,'}5-yard [(arhour Town Golf Links were South Afrir.m Gary Player, 'rookie Hr'U Crenshaw, form|'r collegiate footballer Hale jlrwiii, Jerry Heard, Cesar Satiiiido and Hob Wynn. , Arnold Palmer,^veleran .Julius Boros, Ck'oigt Archer- and U.S. Match Plfiy rirnrieriip DeWilt Weaver' whe in a bunch at 70. \ Rain and lig(itning twice prompted tourriatnenl officials to suspend play during the morning, once for an hour and 20 minutes and again foi' 40 minutes an hour ^fter play had resumed. ; Intermittent rain fell throughout the day over the live oaks and loblolly pines that dot this r'esort island off the South Carolina, but Blancas said the rain helped the greens and his smooth putter. "When you get spike marks and it rains, it v/a.shes them out," he said. iMahaffey, a tour .sophomore looking for his first triurnph, closed with birdie putts on three of the last four hole.s and said: "I'll take it." Wiecher-s, a hulking 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, also had a string of birds, sinking long putts on the third, fourth and fifth holes to deadlock with Mahaffey a stroke off the pace. Yancey, gunning for his first tour win since last year's Amei-ican Golf Classic, .said his round was the kind he had been looking for to get him back on the winning track. "Actually I was lucky with this start," he said. "I've been waiting on this kind of start.'' Player turned in his 12th consecutive round under 70, starting with the pro-am of the Hartford Open two weeks ago, and credited the tight Harbour Town course with keeping his streak going. "This is the best championship golf course I've ever played," he said. "This golf coiir'se has everything. It makes yoM hit all kinds of shots."

WASHINCJTON (UI'I) -Congress Thursday riished through a ban on television blackouts of .sold-out home pro football games and sent the legislation to the nation's No. 1 football fan, Prc'sident Nixon, for his signature here the 1973 season l)(?gins Sunday. The Senate shouted its approval of the bill within minutes after' the pa.s.sed it on a rollcall vote of '.M to .37. Rep. .Jack Kemp, Ji-N.Y., a former Buffalo Bills quarterback, said after the House approved the three-year ban, "I think the Gulf of Tonkin resolution was the last thing that passed the Congress this" The House amended a Senate- passed bill, then returned it to the Senate to complete action and send it to the White for F^resident Nixon's .signature. The measure provides that any game .sold out 72 hours in advance would be televised to hometown audiences, which have traditionally been blacked out. t.'-l'.iough the legal limit of the bill for games this Sunrlay t e c h n i c ;i 1 1 y expir'ed hours before congressional action. Rep. Har'ley 0. Staggers, DW.Va., said the National Football League had agieerl to allow television coverage of .sold-out games this weekend. But NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle, who strongly opposed the blackout prohibition in testimony before Congress, said Thursday the legislation could turn pro football into "a studio show." The measure was prompted by the popularity of pro football. The Baltimore Colts, for instance, sold out 51 consecutive home games. The Minnesota Vikings, whose stadium seats 47,900, sell mor'e than 48,500 tickets for every home game. The Washington Redskins, defending champions of the National Conference, sold every ticket for this sea.son by early summer and, although their .stadium holds more than 50,000, even many memliers of Congress are unable to get I ickets. The House amended the •Senate mea.sur'e to provide that the blackout cover' a three-year' exper'imental period. The S 'Mi- ate had called for a one-year experiment. Staggers, manager of the bill in the House, said the amendment was made in concurrence with Sen. John O. Pastore, D-R.I., manager of the bill in the Senate. Staggers predicted Nixon would sign the bill as .soon as it cleared Play Begins In Net Meet Play began Thur'sday in the everyliody's tennis tournament at Mowat Center.
