J. Simpson and Purdue's Leroy Keyes for the coveted Heisman Trophy. The winner of the trophy, awarded annually to the nation's outslarding collegiate football player, will be announced today. A study of statistics shows little to choose between Beban, the nation's lop signal caller, and Simpson and Keyes, two powerful running backs, but it was expected the UCLA star would gain the award because The Associated Press poll aftef that game and UCLA slipped badly the following week, losing to Syracuse. "But that game didn't change anything," said one selector. "We voted before it was played. I voted for Beban and so did a lot of others."

Criticism Irks Ole Miss 11 OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi's Rebels, still nettled by criticism over their Sun Bowl date, will try to convince supporters Saturday they belong in a post-season game. Oie Miss, now 5-3-1, will bet one last chance to make fans forget those three losses when the Rebels invade Mississippi State in the last game of the season for the two archrlvals, When the Rebs announced acceptance of the invitation to appear in.the Dec. 30 game at El Paso, Tex., reaction around the state was less than enthusiastic, Many felt the game against! Texas-El Paso was a downward step for a team of Ole Miss' reputation. Coach John Vaught.told one sports columnist "I think I am in a far better position to evaluate them (the bowls) I am upset over your statements saying Ole Miss was 'taking the scraps' in the bowl invitations." Vaught describes the Sun Bowl invitation as "a compliment to this fine football team," Although a victory over State, which has lost eight games and beaten only Texas Tech, cannot do much for Ole Miss 1 prestige on a national scale, it could help the Rebels ease some of the criticism at home. The Rebels lost to Memphis State, Alabama and Tennessee and fumbles played major roles in all three defeats, the benefit of eight They got Louisiana State fumbles in deadlocking the Louisianians.
