-A*. • » **••"• Page 8 ffifi fiSAZOSSOBf FAOf3 Oilers-Chargers Decide AFL Title In Houston Sunday PM The first American Football League championship is on ihe line Sunday in Houston when the Los Angdes Chargers challange ihe Houston Oilers for the right to the AFL throne room at ^."WO- seat Jeppesen Stadium. Kick off time for the nationally televised fABC-TV) contest is set for 2:30 CST. The Chargers and Oilers split during the regular league double round robin, Houston winning 38- 2S in the first meeting at Houston, and Los Angeles taking the rematch 24-21 when the game site shifted to the L.A. Coliseum in mid-November. Coach Sid Gillman's West Coast pros captured the Western Div>. sion title with a 10-4 record, the same mark as compiled by Lou Rymkus' Oilers in sweeping to the Eastern Division crown. Only last year Rymkus was nn assistant on Gillman's staff with the Los Angeles Rams. Rymkus, in his first year as a head coach, now finds himself attempting *o win the biggest game of his briof career against his ex-boss. Gillman holds an edge over his former line coach by virtue of a 22-13 victory during the exhibition season. The game at Houston wil offer three of the AFL's top ground gainers plus the top thrower in the league. Los Angeles halfback Paul Lowe was the number two rusher behind the Dallas Texans' Abner Haynes, while Houston will put up heralded Billy Cannon (3rd) and All-League fullback Dave Smith. The Chargers offset this edge in rushing leaders with quarterback Jack Kemp, who finished at the top of the list among AFL passers by throwing lor more than 3,000 yards and completing 5L8 percent of his tosses. The presence of Kemp, Lowe and Smith means that the game will show three-quarters of the AU^League offensive' backfield, Haynes being the only member missing. In all, Houston and Los Angeles put 15 players on the 44- man A1KAFL squad which listed first and second team offenses and defenses. 'Though the Chargers own the king of AFL chunkers in Kemp, the Oilers' George Bianda and Jacky Lee will be throwing at a corps of receivers rated the league's best. Houston placed three men in the top ten receivers, the only club with more than two. Ace receiver Bill Groman, who led the league in yardage receiving with 1473 yards on 72 catches, will be the game's spotlighted pass catcher. The All-AFL end is accompanied on Houston's first ranked pass offense by old pro John Carson, who finished ninth in AFL receiving with 45 catches and 604 yards, and fleet flanker back Charlie Hennigan, who dead' locked for tenth with 44 receptions and 722 yards. Players of the two championship game squads will split the gate receipts, .60 percent divided among the winners and 40 percent distributed among the losers. With all enclosed seats and b-ix seats already sold, only the $5 reserved grandstand and 2.50 end- zones are available.
