Page 4 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16. 1970 PRO FOOTBALL National League By VITO S1ELUNO UPI Sports Writer George Blanda did it again Sunday, but this time he had to share the honors with a pair of oft-maligned quarterbacks — Gary Cuozzo and Fran Tarkenton. Blanda, Oakland's 43-year-old fountain of youth, tossed a 20- yard touchdown pass to Fred Biletnikoff with 2:28 remaining to give the Raiders a 24-19 victory over the Denver Broncos. Blanda, who'd kicked crucial field goals with three seconds remaining in the previous two weeks, replaced Daryle, Lamonica after Denver took a 19-17 lead with 4:01 remaining and directed the winning touchdown march. Cuozzo, the quarterback the skeptics say is carried by the tough Minnesota defense, directed two touchdown marches in the final period as the Vikings came from behind with the winning TD with 1:23 remaining to beat the Detroit Lions, 24-20, and all but clinch the NFC Central Division crown. Tarkenton, the scrambler the critics said would never be a winner, led the New York Giants to three fourth-period touchdown margins as the Giants came from behind to beat*the Washington Redskins, 35-33. The deciding score came with only a minute left. In the other American Conference games, Kansas City beat Pittsburgh, 31-14, Buffalo tied Baltimore, 17-17, Cincinnati edged Cleveland, 14-10, and San Diego topped Boston, 16-14. Other Games In the other National Conference games, San Francisco downed Houston, 30-20, Green Bay edged Chicago, 20-19, and Philadelphia tied Atlanta, 13-13. In inter-conference play, the New York Jets upset Los Angeles, 31-20, and Miami beat New Orleans, 21-10. In the Monday night TV game, St. Louis will battle Dallas in a game for the lead in the NFC East. St. Louis must win to retain its game lead, since Dallas win will create a three-way tie involving those two teams and the Giants. The Minnesota victory over Detroit, its second over the Lions ii three weeks] left the Vikings in the NFC Central and the Baltimore Colts in the AFC East as the two most likely division champions. San Francisco took a' two-game lead in the NFC West with its victory and the Los Angeles loss, while the NFC East and AFC West are still "too close to call." The craziest race is in the "AFC Central, where the leaders- Cleveland and Pittsburgh—have 4-5 records. j Detroit took a 20-10 lead into the final period and still led, 2017, with less than two minutes remaining before Cuozzo hit reserve tight end Jim Lindsey with a 49-yard pass to the Detroit five. On the next play, Clint Jones scored his third touchdown of ,-the game to give Green Bay Minnesota the victory! Chicago- Lamonica, bothered this week with a sore shoulder, threw two touchdown passes, but Blanda came on after the Raiders fell behind. Blanda tossed a 27-yard pass to Rod Sherman and a 35- yard pass to Warren Wells before throwing the winning TD pass to Biletnikoff. Tarkenton Comes Back - Washington scored three touchdowns in the third period to take a 33-14 lead, but Tarkenton came back to direct- touchdown marches of 71, 65 and 63 yards in the final period to win the game. John Brodie threw touchdown passes of 54, nine and 15 yards to lead the Forty-Niners to their victory over Houston. San Francisco gained its two-game lead when AI Woodall threw three touchdown passes as the Jets upset Los Angeles. Kansas City remained right on Oakland's heels in the AFC West by downing Pittsburgh as Len Dawson completed 19 of 24 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns. San Diego stayed alive in that race as John Hadl tossed two TD passes in the come-from-behind win over Boston. Grant Gurhtie's 36-yard field goal with 1:09 left enabled Buffalo to tie Baltimore, but the Colts still have a comfortable lead in the AFC East. Virgii Carter tossed a touchdown pass and engineered a 85- yard TD drive as Cincinnati rallied for the victory over Cleveland. The win left Cincinnati only a game out of first in the AFC Central despite its 3-6 record. Bart Starr scored a touchdown with three'seconds left as Green Bay nipped Chicago and Steve Preece's 21-yard run with a recovered fumble midway in the fourth period helped Philadelphia tie Atlanta. Jim Kiick and Larry Csonka scored second half touchdowns as Miami snapped a three-game losing streak by downing New Orleans. | College Football | Roundups Pro Basketball NBA FOP Takes BB Loop Lead with 67—57 Win Baltimore Miami Buffalo - N.Y.

UNITED STATES BREWERS ASSOCIATION. INC. 518 Chamber of Commerce Building Indianapolis. Indiana 46204 By United Press International President Nixon thinks Purdue's sophomore-laden football team could be Rose Bowl material in the next two years. A top sports fan, the President made the comment late Saturday to Purdue coach Bob DeMoss in a telephone conversation following the Boilermakers' hard-fought 10-7 Big Ten loss to Ohio State at Lafayette. President Nixon had watched the game on television from his retreat at Camp David, Md. "I know how it feels to be second best," the President told DeMoss. He added the sophomores looked good and that he thought they would possibly be in the Rose Bowl before they graduated. Nixon called the Ohio State dressing room, too. He talked to coach Woody Hayes, quarterbacks Rex Kern and Ron Maciejowski, and the man who gave the Buckeyes the victory, kicker FredSchram, Meanwhile, top-rated Notre Dame survived a scare against unranked Georgia Tech, 10-7. And Northwestern handed Indiana its eighth loss, 21-7. Purdue's defense held Ohio State to a standoff for all but the last two minues and four seconds of the rain and snow- marred struggle when Schram booted a 30-yard field goal for the victory. John Brockington, the bruising fullback, ripped off tackle for 26 yards for OSU's lone touchdown, but only 12 second: later Etan Brown raced 96 yards with the kickoff to knot the score at 7-all. It stayed that way until Schram's field goal. At South Bend, Denny Allan plunged two yards ^or a touchdown with 6:28-to play to save the day for the Irish, who railed 7-3. The game Yellow Jackets de- fensed the Irish into a scoreless tie during the first half, the first time since 1965 that Notre Dame failed to put points on the board in the initial 30 minutes. Sophomore quarterback Eddie MeAshen put Tech ahead with a 66-yard scoring pass to flanker Larry Studdard, but it was the Engineers' only points of the day. Veteran Joe Theismann connected on 15 of 30 passes and helped set up both Notre Dame scores. The first was a 34-yard field goal by Scott Smith. Indiana and Northwestern battled to a 7-all deadlock at the half before two Wildcat third-period scores broke open the game. Indiana's score came on a five-yard run by tailback Danny Grossman.

When Michigan faces Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio, next weekend it marks the first time in the 75-year history of the Big Ten that two unbeaten teams have played each other in the last game, of the conference schedule. . Ohio State's Fred Schram got the credit for salvaging his team's win over Purdue when he kicked a 30-yard field goal with only two minutes and four seconds remaining in the game Saturday. Schram's boot broke a 7-7 tie which had lasted since the first quarter. Don Moorhead, Michigan's hidden gem in this year's quality quarterbacks, set a team career total offense record. Moorhead rushed for 65 yards in eight attempts Saturday and completed six of ten passes for 88 yards to bring his total offensive yardage to 3,528. .

' De Vicenzo, the Argentine legend who tossed away the 1968 Masters with the stroke of a pen and then lost a playoff to v Bob Goalby, could afford a 8/2 little humor. After all, he had just won the coveted Silver Trophy 'sought by 86 golfers from around the world in the 1970 World Cup tournament.
