W Southern Methodist's Mustangs rode the great throwing arm of quarterback Charley Arnold to a 33 - 27 triumph over an aroused University of Missouri football team here Saturday. . , t. The Mustangs, who stopped Notre Dame in their season opener but bowed to Georgia Tech last week, were put to a stern test by coach Don Faurot's Missouri Tigers. Twice, both teams came from behind to tie the score or go ahead, but in the end the passing of Arnold proved to be the difference between the Southwest Conference title contender and the Tigers of the Big Seven, Arnold passed for three of the four Mustang touchdowns which were scored through the air. But, substitute quarterback Larry Click fired the most spectacular SMU shot, a 62 - yard scoring heave to Charley Jackson with only two seconds remaining in the first half. It came on the heels of Arnold's touchdown toss to end Leighton Steward. Missouri retaliated quickly in the second half, rolling up two touchdowns with quarterback Jimmy Hunter scoring on a one - yard lunge and then passing 14 yards to halfback Charley James in the end zone for the other. Thfc Tigers, still without victory this season, were not long in command. Arnold threw a pass to Steward for a 34 - yard touchdown play. And before the third quarter ended Jackson, on a hand off, went over on a 2 - yard plunge for the only S.M.U. touchdown scored from the ground.

W Sticking to single - wing power football and getting a break when Kansas muffed a conversion attempt, the Colorado Buffaloes won their second Big Seven Conference game of the season by edging the Jayhawks 26 - 25 Saturday. The teams traded touchdowns, each getting one per quarter, as 20,000 fans looked on. Kansas scored last, and center Galen Wahlmaier's kick for the extra point split the crossbars. But Kansas was penalized five yards for illegal procedure on the play and Drought 'Is .. Over, Pcim Wins, 14 - 7 PHILADELPHIA (UP) - Downtrodden Penn, overpowered by major opposition these past two seasons, found its level Saturday and opened its formal Ivy League play by upsetting Dartmouth, 14 - 7, to break a 19 - game losing streak, the nation's longest among major colleges. The triumph was the first f or ; Coach Steve Sebo, starting his j third year at the helm of the i quakers, who had gone 23 games without a taste of victory, tying once. The long - sought success intoxicated Penn undergraduates who raced from the crowd of 15,5fi9 with two minutes left to play to rip down both goal posts. Streamers and torn program books were tossed in the air and from the stands and the press box atop Franklin Field. Auburn Routs Furman, 41 - 0 AUBURN, Ala. (AV - Auburn backs ran Furman ragged in a football frolic Saturday for a 41 - 0 victory.

Thomas ran 16 yards on a crisscross for Oklahoma's first touchdown with only 2H minutes played. He scored from six yards out five minutes later and fan 16 ' for the third Oklahoma score early on the next try, Wahlmeier's boot was wide. Until that point it appeared the Jayhawks would duplicate their come - from - behind 27 - 27 tie with College of Pacific a week ago. Sophomore Ellwin Indorf of Colorado made good his first two kicks for the extra point and his second one proved to be the margin of victory. Colorado's effective off - tackle plays, one an 80 - yard scoring dash by tailback Bob Stransky in thf last quarter, kept Colorado ahead all the way except for a brief 19 - 14 Kansas advantage late in the third period. Colorado's rugged line play, led by Jerry Leahy, made a key contribution to the victory in the last quarter when the Buffaloes stopped a Kansas rushing play inches short of a first down and took over on downs on their 32. Cook and Fullback John (The Ryan Peps 23 - 14 Upset HOUSTON M Frank Ryan, 183 - pound junior quarterback, threw a 51 - yard touchdown pass to end Buddy Dial and turned another pass play into a 32 - yard touchdown run Saturday night while leading the Rice Owls to a 23 - 14 intersectional victory over favored Louisiana State. A crowd of 55,000 saw Rice feature Ryan's fine passes and stubborn line play in defeating the heavier LSU team that was a 6 - point favorite. IVTV . J J U CM 11 JJlllltl C Wfrt TnV'ic AUSTIN, Tex. UP A strapping West Virginia University line stopped Texas cold on the 1 - foot line for two plays late in the game to preserve a 7 - 6 intersectional football victory here Saturday. Some 30,000 tense fans watched a field goal try by Texas fullback Johnny Elam fall short with about 20 seconds left in the game. Trailing 7 - 6, Texas marched 92 yards to within bare inches of the rugged Mountaineers goal line. Quarterback Joe Clements tried two plunges and was stopped dead. Vanlerbilt Stops Alabama Club, 32 - 7 MOBILE, Ala. (UP) - Halfback Phil King scored two touchdowns and added two extra points Saturday night to lead Vanderbilt in a 32 - 7 rout of Alabama. King, a 210 - pound converted fullback, smashed two yards for Van - derbilt's third touchdown and added a fourth score with a dazzling 25 - yard dash. Husker Brown goes 71 years to !n the second quarter. Seven other Oklahoma backs shared in the touchdowns. Full - back Billy Pricer, a key man in coach Bud Wilkinson's awesome lineup, scored his first touchdown in two years of college play on a two - yard, third - quarter plunge. Pricer also made good three of his four extra point kicks. Beast) Bayuk were the workhorses in Colorado's attack. Cook ripped tackle - end on 18 plays for 84 yards.

Aggies Plow Texas Tech Under, 40 - 7 DALLAS, Oct. 6 W Texas A&M's Aggies stampeded through Texas Tech 40 - 7 Saturday night and showed the, newest member of the Southwest Conference that the leaeue plays rough. They did it with sheer power, except twice when Tech stiffened near the goal line. Then &M went to the air to pour more misery on the Red Raiders. The point spread was one of the greatest in the 14 games the teams have played, and was sweet revenge for the Aggies, who were swamped 41 - 9 the last time they met. John Crow scored twice, once on a run of 13 yards and again on a 20 - yard pass and run from Jimmy Wright. Don Watson took a 10 - yard scoring pass from Wright. Bobby Conrad, who played a fine game as quarterback, sneaked a yard for a tally and 2 for a second score, and Jack Pardee blasted 5 yards for anoth - The Tech tally came in the waning minutes of the contest, a long desperate heave from Buddy Hill to Ken Vakey, good for 36 yards.

Fluke Play For a fluke play brought about the only Cyclone score early in the game. The Huskers took the opening kickoff and in seven plays had marched to the Iowa State 44. The lightning struck and deflated the Huskers. Stinnett hit into the line and the ball popped into the - air. Fullback Marv Walter was Johnny - on - the - spot and picked it off neatly. Not a Nebraskan had a chance at him as he raced 55 yards to give Iowa State a touchdown without having ever run a play. When John Scheldrup booted the extra point, it didn't seem too important. . But that lone point was to loom larger and larger as the afternoon wore on. No Troubles Nebraska had no trouble grinding out yardage but every time something would happen to halt the drive. There were fumbles, intercepted passes and even the outright theft of the ball from Nebraska's quarterback. Jerry Brown, a booming fullback reminiscent of days gone by, provided the only Husker touchdown in the second quarter, Brownie ran a trap play up the middle. It looked like a bust as he hit into a pile of sturdy Cyclones. But the big kid from Min - den shook and squirmed. He broke loose and did a complete turn j as he sought to keep his feet. ! Then he saw daylight and off he raced to the goal, some 71 yards away. A host of Huskers were on hand to escort him home in style. Larry Naviaux attempted the extra point and it was way wide to the left. But, so what? The Huskers were on the move. v Husker Downfall?

Both were spilled on the beautiful green turf of Memorial Stadium Saturday. Players from both Iowa State and Nebraska lost some blood in the vicious Big Seven football battle. Afterwards, Coach Vince Di Franceses, trying hard to hide his emotions, shed tears as he talked with Cyclone fans while his club slowly walked to the visitor's dressing - room. Tears How Di Francesca stayed on the field for almost 15 minutes before joining his team. After chatting to a dozen or so I - State alumni and fans, anger and disappointment gave way to tears. There weren't many, but the Cyclone coach did weep. Hastily and vigorously he rubbed his eyes to destroy the evidence of his sorrow. The result was a red - eyed, dejected portrait of a college coach in defeat. . ? v Some Smiles But during the game, Vince was far from filled with sadness. At first he sat quietly on a chair, a towel clutched in his ham - like hands. He managed a shy smile when fullback Marv Walter took a Nebraska fumble in the air and ran for a score. ' i From then on, Di Francesca moved like a man possessed. Always accompanied by a towel, unless he had flung it down in disgust over a penalty or a mistake by a Cyclone, he roamed the sidelines. '"" Now Hear This 'Come on. Speed it up. Too long, too long in the huddle, he would shout. When a Cyclone went offside on offense, Vince stormed, "Find out who that was!" "Come on! You're getting lazy, lazy, LAZY!' , "No more penalties, you guys. We've had enough for today, you understand." . There were lots of other comments from the Iowa State mentor, all equally short and to the point. Contrasts On the other side of the field, Pete Elliott paced just as much and just as enthusiastically as he did when South Dakota visited Lincoln. Pete didn't carry a towel in a tightly clenched fist, nor did he chew ice, but in other respects he was just as nervous as Di Francesca. ' At the conclusion while Di Francesca wept, Pete was given a crunching bear hug of joy by assistant coach Dee Andros and had his hand pumped by one and all. Player Quotes George Harshman "Kicking that field goal was the biggest thrill of my life. Although it was the first game field goal I have ever kicked, I had the feeling before going in I could do it." Bennie Dillard "I hurt my knee before they hit me on that punt return. It gave out when I cut back." Clarence Cook "They were fired up real good. But we seemed to keep them in tow on defense. Jerry Brown "My nose feels like mush." (Brown's nose was smashed late in the fourth quarter.) Mike Lee "We really played hard. It was a rough, tough ball game." Jerry Wheeler "They were firing at us. It was plenty rough out there." Wayne Replogle, Kansas University Scout "I was very impressedby both teams." Jack Fleming "They're a real tough bunch ot guys. They played and hit hard and they never gave up but neither did we." Edges Iowa State on into the final period that lone point looked like Nebraska's down fall. Iowa State was close to a score in the second half with a break - originated drive. Harshman, running the option, ran right into Guard Ron Brede - son, who promptly took the ball Statistics NTT First Downs (Total) 14 By Rushing 12 By Passin . . . f 0 By Penalties . 2 Ruthin?

Field Goal Try So even were these contenders in the Orange Bowl derby that Iowa State also got to try a field j goal. It came in the first quarter after Walter had recovered Brown's fumble to stall the Huskers on the Cyclone 30. A 36 - yard dash by Jim Lary helped the Cyclones to the NU 9 - yard line.

Next week it will be Kansas State at Memorial Stadium. Injuries may force Coach Pete Elliott to do some more juggling with his slim forces. - But a few good breaks can make up for a lot of woes.
