I'unts KurnMes 1ost rdm rcnalticd AMES, Iowa W Oklahoma's flashing speed swept past Iowa State 44 - 0 Saturday to give the Sooners an official, all - time national college winning record of 37 consecutive games. The Sooners owned the Big Seven Conference victory with less than five minutes played in the first quarter when Tommy McDonald plunged one foot for the first of his two touchdowns. McDonald's touchdown twin, halfback Clendon Thomas, also accounted for a pair of touchdowns on plunges of less than one yard. However, the highlight of the one - sided contest was center Jerry Tubbs 72 - yard run for a touchdown in the third quarter. Tubbs, a converted fullback, looked like one all the way as he shed Iowa State tacklers on his spring after intercepting a Cyclone pass. The victory running Oklahoma's unbeaten string to 57 in the conference also gave the Sooners the all - time collegiate record for games won, Oklahoma's publicity director, Harold Keith, said. Keith explained a recheck of the records by the NCAA showed Penn Duke, Navy Battle To 7 - 7 Draw D U R H A M, N. C. tf) - A pass interference penalty on Navy's 1 - yard line in the fourth quarter helped Duke pull out a savagely fought 7 - 7 tie here Saturday, the third in four years between the two schools. Quarterback Sonny Jurgensen quickly cashed in the big break for Duke by sneaking the yard for a touchdown and halfback Bernie Blaney came in to kick the point that tied the score. Navy, sparked by its fine quarterback Tom Forrestal, had scored on an 83 - yard, 13 - play, second - period drive that was climaxed by a 1 - yard end sweep by halfback Paul Gober. The vital seventh point was converted by Chet Burchett. In the thrill - packed final period that left 25,000 fans limp, each team missed a field goal in the closing minutes. Burchett was wide with his from the 16 with 2:30 left to play and with seven seconds remaining, fullback Jim Harris of Duke was low and wide in an attempt from the 20.

A slim crowd of only 10.300 chilled fans watched a systematic Wildcat air and ground game mow down Marquette to break a three - game losing streak. Marquette, mired in the worst season of its 54 - year football history, now has dropped eight in a row and nine straight over a two - year span. Gene Keady, who made the switch from quarterback to halfback without missing a step, and End Don Zadnik each scored two touchdowns in the Wildcats rout. Quarterback Dick Corbin, a stylish southpaw, passed for two scores and plunged for a third. Second string back Ben Grosse completed the Wildcats' hectic scoring pace by racing six yards for a TD late in the final quarter. Oddly enough Marquette registered a 22 - 20 edge over the Wildcats in first downs. The Warriors also outgained the winners on passes, 174 to 169, but with Keady, a 6 - 0, 190 - pound speedster providing most of the thunder, Kansas State rang up an overwhelming superiority of 336 - 142 on the ground. Halfback Jim Surane accounted i for both Marquette touchdowns with plunges from one yard out. Keady, former star at Garden City, Kan., Junior College, was the howitzer in the Wildcats' rushing game with 113 yards on 12 carries for an average of 9.4 yards. He also caught three passes for! 50 yards. Trailing Keady in the ball car rying department was Keith Wil son, a righthander who alternates at quarterback with the lefthand - ed Corbin. He picked up 56 vards on six carries. The most spectacular of Kansas State's six touchdowns was a 63 - yard pass play from Corbin to; Zadnik. Zadnik cauerht th hall i on Marquette's 45 and ran the rest of the way untouched. Zadnik 's three receptions were good for 101 yards.

Quarterback Jimmy Lugar sneaked across from a yard out to climax a 76 - yard drive in the first period but the Deacons marched 56 yards in the second period with fullback Bill Barnes scoring after recovering a fumble.
