The game between the unbeaten Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, co-leaders in the Western Division, also highlights the day's program. The San Diego Chargers play the Buffalo Bills while Denver takes on Houston in the other games. The Boston Patriots are not scheduled. "If Namath gets a hot hand, like he did against us last year. New York will be rough," said Dolphins' coach George Wilson, referring to the brilliant Jets' quarterback. Tops AFL Passing The Jets beat Miami .'3U-13 in Shea Stadium last year after recording a 19-14 triumph on the Dolphins' field. This year, each team has a 1-1 mark and leads in important statistical categories. New York, led by Namath, tops the AFL in passing and total offense. Miami boats the circuit's best pass defense. The Dolphins' opposition has averaged only 63 yards passing in the first two games. "'Denver completed just six passes and although Kansas City threw only 13 times, they completed only seven," Wilson noted. Miami dropped a 24-0 decision to Kansas City last week after an opening game victory over the Broncos. San Diego Undefeated New York, which beat Denver 38-24 a week ago after losing to Buffalo, will be without fullback Snell for at least six weeks. He underwent surgery Friday on his left knee. He suffered a torn cartilage in the game against the Bills. The game between the Chiefs and Raiders, each 2-0, shapes up as a defensive struggle. Kansas City comes off its shutout victory over Miami while Oakland rested last week after walloping Denver 51-0 and Boston 35-7. San Diego, the circuit's only other unbeaten team at 2-0, now has a healthy Lance Alworth for the opposition to contend with. Alworth climbed right back among the leaders in receiving when he caught 10 passes for 121 yards and one touchdown in a 13-3 triumph over Houston last week. Buffalo, 1-3, suffered the lirst shutout in its history a week ago in a 23-0 loss to Boston. Despite their loss to the Jets, the Broncos staged a fine offensive showing last week as Steve Tensi connected on 14 of 30 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns. In addition, Floyd Little had his best day from scrimmage, gaining 55 yards in 10 carries.

(AP Wirephoto) Orduna's Touchdown Leads Nebraska Win LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska sophomore halfback Joe Orduna cracked open a rugged defensive football battle with a bulling 25-yard touchdown run in the third quarter Saturday and the seventh-ranked Corn-huskers posted a 7-0 decision over Minnesota. It was the 20th consecutive home field win for Nebraska, and an all-time record Memorial Stadium crowd of 65,361 satj in as Nebraska ran its season record to 2-0. It was Minnesota's j first loss in two starts. A 04-yard drive highlighted by rookie quarterback Frank Patrick' passes set up the game winning touchdown after each team had shackled the other's offenses and the only solid threat had been long field goal tries. Passes of 11 and nine yards to Dennis Riehnafsky and an 18-yarder to Dick Davis helped put Yardstick Minnesota Nebraska first quarter, and Minnesota was held to a net of two .

Other Nebraska drives ended in three unsuccessful field goal attempts, and a fumble on Minnesota's seven nullified another Cornhusker threat in the final period. Minnesota's Bob Stein missed on a 33-yard field goal try in the second quarter. So rugged were delenses of the two old and muscular rivals that Nebraska could gain a net of only four yards rushing in the Tiw IWIJ Tvtun ISU Freshmen Open Monday Illinois State University's freshman football team, thin in numbers, opens its season with a controlled scrimmage against Illinois Wesleyan's junior varsity at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Hancock Stadium.
