Meek Tech Turns Spoiler United Press International • A : scrappy litlle team with not enough 'il(5pt'h or heft to cause much trouble was the way Southwest Conference fans figured Texas Tech before the start of the season. But Red Raider opponents are singing fl different tune today. "They're looking real rugged right now," Southern Methodist, coach Bill Meek said. "You've got to have more, than just fight— you've got to have athletes to beat TCU and Baylor in a row." What turned, the supposed neighborhood whipping boy into a bully? "We're getting maximum effort out of our whole ball club," Tech coach J. T. King said. "Frankly I don't think there are any miracles in football." • He said football was a question of work and discipline.

Michigan State, which succeeded Mississippi as the No, I team in the UPI nvajor college football ratings this week, entertains Indiana Saturday while Ole Miss hosts Vanclerbilt, Last season, the Spartans walloped Indiana, 35-0, and Mississippi shut out Vanderbilt, 26-0. All the other top 10 teams are stout favorites. Third-ranked Texas is picked to defeat Rice by at least 14 points, and fourth- ranked Alabama is a 13-point fa-' vorite over Houston, Sixth-ranked Ohio State is also picked by 13 points over Wisconsin in the nationally televised game of the week. The Southwest Conference clash between Baylor and Texas A&M Is the only even-money game on the list. Here are the odds on other leading games: South — Duke 5 over North Carolina State; Louisiana State 7 over Florida; Kentucky 7 over Georgia; Auburn 7 over Clemson; Miami 7 over North Carolina; Maryland 9 over South Carolina; Georgia Tech 14 over Tulane.

Halfback Tommy Minter and center Butch Maples .were Ireld out of contact work at the Baylor camp. Coach John Bridgers said both players may see action against A&M. The Bears held another long workout, devoting lots of time to the Aggie offense. It was fundamentals day at Fayetteville. Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles said "We've gone back to fundamentals because everyone was so embarrassed Saturday (in losing to Texas, 33-7) that now they know what they have to do to play football." The Razorbacks play Northwest Louisiana State Saturday in Little Rock. Coach Jess Neely said Rice will spend all week trying to find a way to knock the skids out from under the nation's No. 1 offensive team—Texas. Two players were listed as doubtful starters because of leg injuries, Center Dan Malin worked out in shorts because of an injured leg and guard Walter Ligon was suffering from a hurt knee. Five University of Texas players, including four starters, missed Tuesday's workout. End Tommy York is definitely out of the Rice game with a broken hand.

'•'•'• "People don't realize ..what small margin there ,is between victory and defeat," Royal said. "One lost fumble in the 'second quarter against Arkansas could have changed the whole complexion of the game." 'Royal credits his coaching staff for helping put together what is the most successful team he has ever had at mid-season. Two of the assistants, line coach Jim Pittman and defensive specialist Charley Shira, have been with Royal for nine years. "A hard-nose defense" has been the trademark of Royal's teams at Texas and before that at North Carolina State, Tulsa, Mississippi State, .the University of Washington and Edmonton in Canada's professional league. But this year- a galaxy of backfield stars has put Texas* into the national total offense leadership, with an average of 437.2 yards gained per game. Two" of the most sparkling performers are All-America candidate James Saxton, who averages nine yards per ca |- ry and quarterback Mike Cotton, whose .639 passing average leads the Southwest Conference, Friday night at 7:30 at Amarillo's Dick Bivins Stadium.
