Ohio State, returning most of the team that won the conference crown year, turned loose its devastating one-two running punch of Archie Griffin and Cliamp Henson and completely overwhelmed Minnesota 5()-7 while Michigan rolled up 475 yards and destroyed Iowa, 31-7. Griffin, who starred as a freshman a year ago, nisluHl for 12H yards in 15 carries and i-oturned a kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown while playing just a little over one-half the game. Ilenson, the nation 's leading scoier a year ago, sc ^ored three touchdowns to lead the I'out. The Buckeyes got a 73- yard TD punt retiu'n fi'om Neil Hiland Park Wins, 25-0 Auburn IT'S A ROMP — Seci-etariat wins the Marlboro Cup race cti tJelmont in record time, with Riva Ridge a not-so-close second, Cougar II third and Onion fourth. (ByUPI) Secretariat Explodes By RAY AYRES UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) -Triple Crown champion Secretariat exploded with unbelievable speed at Belmont Park Saturday to smash the world record for 1 1-8 miles for a dirt course and win the $250,000 Marlboro Cup by 3 V2 lengths over stablemate Riva Ridge. The time also equalled the world record set by Tentam in the Baruch Handicap on the turf at Saratoga this year. Tentam had been invited to compete in the Marlboro Cup but his owner declined. Drawing even with Riva Ridge at the top of the stretch. Secretariat asserted his superiority over one of the best fields ever assembled and drew away in the final straightaway to finish his sparkling demonstration in 1:45 2-5. The brilliant son of Bold Ruler had been challenged to show his class in the preceding race on the day's program when Desert Vixen won the Beldame in 1:46 1-5 over the same distance to equal the track and American record and dare Secretariat to be Ijetter. The long-striding colt responded to this latest challenge by knocking two-fifths of a second off the previous world record for a dirt course set by Pink Pigeon at Santa Anita on March 27,1969. Secretariat was forced to this supreme effort by Riva Ridge, who had taken the lead on the turn for home. Once he drew even with Riva Ridge, Secretariat slowly inched ahead and then finally broke the race wide open to wipe out the memory of defeat in the Whitney Stakes at Saratoga. That was the last time Secretariat had been to the post and the first time he challenged older horses. The 3-year-old Meadow Stable champion was more than equal to the challenge against older and more seasoned campaigners this time and it was only his stablemate who could stay even close to him. oRiva Ridge was two lengths in front of Cougar II at the finish with Onion in fourth place, 6 1-2 lengths farther back. It was Onion who beat Secretariat in the Travers Stakes but Saturday he was 10 lengths behind the winner. Annihilate Em finished fifth, followed by Kennedy Road and Key to the Mint. This was the second time Secretariat came roaring back from a previous defeat. Early in the spring he was beaten in the Wood Memorial but came back to win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes to become the first Triple Crown winner in a quarter of a century. It was a sweet victory for Mrs. Penny Tweedy of the Meadow Stable, trainer Lucien Laurin and Turcotte. For after Secretariat was beaten in the Whitney Stakes, some people believed he would not be able to handle older horses. But he humbled them as easily as he did the 3-year-olds in the Triple Crown classics. Secretariat's victory delighted a crowd of 48,023, who roared with approval when he joined Riva Ridge at the start of the home stretch. For the moment the two horses ran as a team and visions of a dead heat rose in the fans' minds, but they showed where theii- true sentiments were when Secretariat started to move away from his stablemate. They were more than delighted and applauded vigorously when Turcotte briefly paraded his horse in front of the stands on his way to the winner's circle. They had bet Secretariat as though they never lost faith, and the entry paid $2.80 to win and place and $2.40 to show. Cougar II paid $3.00 for third. Secretariat hauled down the winner's purse of $150,000 that put him in the millionaire class. The Big Red machine now has earned $1,132,089 and joins Riva Ridge in the millionaire bracket. Riva Ridge picked up $55,000 and his earnings now stand at $1,077,027. Cougar II, another horse who has earned more one million dollars, raised his earnings by $30,000 to $1,149,741. Secretariat now has won 14 of his 18 races and appears to be headed for his seccond straight Horse of the Year title. He was the best liorse in America last year as a 2-year-old and Saturday's victory assured him, of a repeat title. Onion went to the front at the start with Riva Ridge closest in pursuit. Secretariat was back in fifth place. Hiland Park Razorbacks turned in an impressive showing in downing the Cedar Grove Tigers, 25-0 in Midget League Football at Pete Edwards Stadium Saturday afternoon. Hiland Park won, behind the leadership of standout quarterback, Mike Armstrong. He led his team to two of its four touchdowns, scoring one himself on a one yard plunge and passing 25 yards on another to Clay Slaughter. He also kicked a conversion following hisTD run. Other scores for the Razorbacks were by Phil Kirkland and Clancy Faucheux. Tyndall Voo Doo Pee Wees beat Northside, 8-0, Millville-Springfield P^eWee squad edged Lynn Haven, 6-0, Callaway PeeWees defeated Beach, 6-0, and in another midget game Callaway downed Northside, 16-6. The Voodoos got a late touchdown on a two yard run by Lance Sharp. Howai-d Akers ran for the two points conversion. The touchdown was set up by the standout running of speedster, Louis Britos. Clay Long scored in the second quarter on a 26 yard run to give Millville-Cpringfield its victory. Lynn Haven was hampered by two costly fumbles. Callaway's Rebels turned back a determined Beach PeeWee squad, after Donnie Thomas hit Jeff Williams on a 16 yard scoring toss in the second quarter. The Callaway touchdown came as the buzzer sounded ending the first half. The TD was set up on a long run by Thomas. Leading the Beach offense were Mike Canzaneri, Billy Frazier, and Mickey Meachum.

(ContiniKMl fniiii IC) before a White pass was intercepted by Auburn's Roger Mitchell, his .second steal of the day. Mitchell was decked and a fight began that cleared both benches. The victory may prove costly for the Tigers, who depend largely on their running attack. Both Mclntyre and starting tailback Mitzie Jackson of DDFUNIAK Springs, Fla., left the game in tlie first half with knee injuries. Auburn trainers said further examinations would be necessaiy. The loss of Jackson and Mclntyre left Chris Linderman, who was the top per-game rusher in the Southeastern Conference last season, to handle the critical tailback post. Linderman carried 17 times Saturday and gained 76 yards.
