Giants Fall From Lead In 17-16 Loss To Dallas Chargers Clout Bronchos 37-0 By United Press International the "magic number" for San Diego is only three in the American football League today, and any day now you can \ expect someone to set up a cry of "break up the Chargers!" •' ' kings 28 : 10, San Diego breezed to its eighth consecutive victory Sunday by trouncing the Denver Broncos, 370. Now any combination of San Diego victories and defeats by the "runnerup" Dallas Texans which add up to three, will clinch the Chargers' second straight Western Division title. From the looks of things, .. that wing-ding race in the Eastern Division will not be decided until the final Sunday. The New York Titans stayed on top by beating the Oakland Raiders, 14-6, and the Boston Patriots stayed right with them by edging Dallas, 18-17. The Houston Oilers also remained in contention with a 28-16 triumph Over the Buffalo Bills. A crowd of 32,584, one of the largest ever ,to pay its way into an AFL game, watched San Diego's brilliant defensive unit intercept four passes and recover three enemy fumbles in the rout against Denver. Linebacker Bob Laraba raced 57 yards with an intercepted pass to score a San Diego touchdown in the second period and two minutes later Chuck Allen ran 59 yards to score with a stolen aerial. Allen recovered a pair of Denver fumbles in the second half to set up a 13-yard field goal by George Blair and a 33-yard touchdown .pass from Jack Kemp to Don Norton- The Titans marched 78 yards to score on a first-period touchdown by Bill Mathis and then battled the Raiders in the stiff, 25-mile- an-hour winds of San Francisco's Candlestick Park. The team bene- fitting from the gale punted about 70 yards; the club kicking into the wind was lucky to get off a 30- yard boot George Fleming kicked Oakland field goals of 25 and 33 yards to narrow the Titans' -lead to one point' before a pass interference penalty set up a one-yard touchdown plunge' by Mathis with 1:32 left lo play A crowd of 7,138 attended.

Critical district battles are a cheap commodity on the Texas schoolboy football market this week. The bulk of the spotlight games will come in Class AAAA, but Class AAA, whose Top 10 ranks were shaken up considerably last week, also will have a half dozen or more contests of import. Defeat of defending Class AAAA champion Corpus Christi Miller 3-0 by Corpus Christi Carroll last Saturday night, thrust this week's Carroll-Corpus Christ! Ray game into the limelight. Ray, ranked No, 4 in the state, must clear the stubborn Carroll team en route to the playoffs. But, the Southern bracket also has another standout contest in Galena Park at Baytown, both sharing the District 12: lead with Brazosport. Both Baytown and Brazosport have been victims of stunning upsets at the hand of Galveston, while Brazosport handed Galena Park its only setback. Boston moved 78 yards in four 1339 yards in six games, an aver- plays, Ed Songing passing four j yards to Joe , Johnson for the touchdown. Babe Parilli's two- point conversion : run narrowed Dallas' lead to 17-15. With time running out, the Patriots then moved to within field goal'range and Cappelletti booted a three-pointer from the 24 as the fans shouted a count-down with the clock- The field goal gave Cap- age of 56.5 yards per game. The closest team in this category is the Aggies with 237 yards in penalties for a 39.5 average. In last weekend's games, Texas was the leading offensive producer with 446 yards against Rice, while Arkansas turned in^the best defensive job by limiting North' western Louisiana to a total production of only 74 yards.

Foster Pampa Powerful Longhorns Eye Perfect Season By United Press International The Texas Longhorns sat on top of the Southwest Conference today with not only the league crown, but prospects of the first perfect season in the ' loop in 22 years easily in reach. It looks like a one-team race with the rest of the clubs trying for runner-up as the Longhorns. prepare for Southern Methodist this weekend. It should be an easy hurdle. Besides SMU, only Baylor, Texas Christian and Texas A&M stand in the way of an undefeated season for the Steers. If the unexpected should happen, however, Arkansas, A&M, Rice and SMU are presently in line for an opportunity to move into contention. The Razorbacks and the Aggies try to eliminate each other this weekend. Rice was supposedly the last Amarillo Tascosa, leading, the 3-AAAA race, faces once-beaten Amarillo Palo Duro in a crucial test. A Palo Duro victory would throw these two clubs into a triple tie with Borger for 'the lead, while a Tascosa triumph would, all but put that team into he playoffs. Fort. Worth Paschal, ranked among the Top 10 all season, aces the first of two tests against unbeaten city district rivals when he Panthers meet Carter-Riverside. Spring Branch beaten only by Ray in a non-district game, can ust about wrap up 10-AAAA hon- os by beating Houston Jones, while the winner of the Brownsville-McAllen game seems sure to meet the Corpus Christi zone winner in 14-AAAA. Wichita Falls, the AAAA standout, meets tough Arlington in its second 4-AAAA test after mauling Irving last week. Other AAAA games of note include Longview-Texarkana in 8- AAAA, Waco-Austin S. F. Austin in 13-AAAA 'and Alamo Heights- San Antonio Jefferson in 15- AAAA.

Pair Leads Lone Star Grid Race By United Press International Lamar Tech's Cardinals face what may be a severe test this week in the Lone Star Conference against Texas A&I at Kingsville, but odds are they will settle the issue in a showdown batt e against Sam Houston State in a race to the wire- Sam Houston plays host to Sul Ross at Huntsville and is heavily favored while S- F. Austin faces Howard Payne at Brcrwnwood and East Texas plays Southwest Texas at Commerce. Sam Houston racked up its fourth league triumph without defeat at the expense of stubborn Southwest Texas, but it took a.41- yard first quarter field goal by Calvin Pope and a 55-yard run by Ken Wiginton to turn the trick ! 9-7. Tech, a shade behind the Bear kats with a 3-0-1 loop record, romped to an easy 33-13 victoryol over Howard Payne. Tech's tie was with Southwest Texas only a week ago. In other weekend activity de- major threat to Texas, and the Steers buried the Owls under a 34-7 avalanche Saturday night to move three-fifths of the way tow- nrd the first 10-0 season for a league team since A&M turnec the trick in 1939- Since then, the Aggies have come closest to achieving tha goal, posting a 9-0-1 record in 1956 when only a 14-14 tie' with the Houston Cougars marred their record. That Aggie team also was the last championship team to wade through league play un scathed. Texas plays Southern Methodis next Saturday in Dallas, then Baylor and Texas Christian a Austin, and Texas A&M at Col lege Station. But, none of these have shown signs they are capable of stem ming the Longhorn tide anymore than California, Texas Tech, Washington State. Oklahoma, Arkansas and Rice before them. Texas moved into undisputed first place with a 3-0 league record over the .weekend which also saw the Texas Aggies complete the deflation of the Baylor bubble 23-0, SMU win its fust conference encounter since late 1959 with an 8-7 .victory over Texas Tech, and Arkansas spoil the hopes of little Boozer with about a minute left Ole Miss To Clash With LSD By United Press International Major college football's list of undefeated nnd untied teams was reduced to n mere six today and faced even further damage with traditional conference games on tap this weekend. Michigan State and Mississippi —front runners among the "big six." — curry Iheir perfect records and Saturday's sweeping victories on the road against Minnesota and Louisiana State, respectively. Oilier members of the elite group — Texas, Alabama, Colorado and Rutgers — also may have a tough time keeping their slates clean. Iowa, Bowling Green and Memphis State were I lie lot- scoring unit that could prove troublesome in the National Basketball Association th ! s season. Led by Jack Twyman's 31 points the Royals defeated Syracuse, 139-132, Sunday night and broke two Cincinnati Garden records in the process. The Royals set marks for field goal accuracy with 59 per cent and had a 73-point first half. Bob Boozer contributed 28 points, Wayne Embry scored 27, Oscar Robertson 26 and Arlen Bockhorn 15 as Cincinnati evened its season Besides the prestige which goes lo .the unbeaten and 'untied, conference titles and bowl bids now are at stake. First-ranked Michigan State, in a three-wf4y tie for the Big Ten championship, moots the Gophers at Minneapolis in a regionally televised game. Michigan State routed Indiana, 35-0, last Sntur- dny, while the Gophers won their fourth straight and the Little Brown Jug by stopping Michigan, 23-20. Ole Miss, rnnkert No. 'I, made Vanderbilt its sixth victim, 47-0, The champion Eagles, the "squeaker" champs of the league, defeated the wlnless Washington Redskins on a 41-yard pass from Sonny Jurgensen tt. Tommy McDonald with just 16 seconds left to play. This was the Eagles' fourth victory by a margin of a touchdown or less. In the NFL's top game, the Benrs edged the Baltimore Colts on Rick Casares' touchdown with 6:27 left on the clock. And in the league's biggest upset, the Cowboys nipped the New York Giants, 17-16 goal with 1:28 remnj«ing. The defeat knocked the Giants out of n first - place tie with the Eagles in the Eastern Division of the loop. The Pittsburgh Stcelers also sprang an upset when they sent the San Francisco Forty-Nincrs down to their second straight loss, 20-10, Tho Cleveland Browns defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 21-10 anc :he Detroit Lions whipped the Los Angeles Rams, 28-10. Jurgensen's last •minute touchdown pass to McDonald put the Eagles alone in first place in the Eastern Division with a 6-1 record nnd sent the Redskins down to their 15th consecutive NFL de feat, Just before that, Ihe Redskina had gone ahead, 24-20, when rookie quarterback Norm Sneac engineered an 81-yard touchdowt drive, topping it off,with n s»vcn yard scoring pass to Jim Cunningham with 51 seconds to play, The Bears trailed the Colts 20-7 in the third period before they rallied lo win before 57,641 fans at Baltimore.
