(AP) A 96-yard drive, climaxed by a 30- yard touchdown pass, marched No. 7 Oklahoma into at least a Big Eight title tie and an certain Orange Bowl bid with a 14-10 triumph over Kansas Saturday. The Sooners, trailing 10-0 early in the third quarter scored in the wanning moments as quarterback Bob Warmack found end Steve Zabel in the open for the go-ahead touchdown. Oranges, sold by the crate load outside the Owens Stadium gates in anticipation of an Orange Bowl bid, rained down on the field. The final touchdown shattered a Kansas dream which had been masterfully constructed by Bobby Douglass. He guided his team to a 23-yard field goal by Bill Bell in the first quarter and then stepped over from the one- yard line for what appeared to be the clinching touchdown. But the Sooners, roaring back with their mighty offense, scored with Steve Oweas running seven yards on the first possession after the Kansas touchdown. The only Kaasas touchdown came after a Sooner punt attempt which was blocked at the Oklahoma 25 and set Kansas up at the Sooner 19. Douglass, on a fourth and one situation, stepped in behind his right guard with the score. The victory put the Big Eight record at 5-0 with two games remaining.

Gophers Shatter Indiana MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Minnesota shattered Cinderella dream of a perfect season Saturday as Curt Wilson ran for four touchdowns and passed for another to give the Gophers a 33-7 victory for the inside track to the Rose Bowl. Minnesota needs only to defeat Wisconsin next Saturday to make its third trip to Pasadena in eight years. Indiana, which had reeled off eight straight victories to gain a fifth place ranking in The Associated Prss college football poll, not only saw its perfect record smashed but also its hopes for the first Rose Bowl appearance were dealt a crucial blow. The Hoosiers must defeat Big Ten leader Purdue this week to qualify for Pasadena. Or the Hoosiers still could go if Wisconsin upsets Minnesota. Wilson led a revitalized gopher offense which battered defense with a punishing ground attack. Only in the second quarter could Indiana contain Minnesota. Indiana bounced back from a 7-0 halftime deficit to tie the score on a 76-yard drive in 15 plays with a second half kickoff. Harry Gonso scored from one yard out. Minnesota went back in front 13-7 before the third quarter ended on one-yard keeper to cap a 68-yard drive. Indiana threatened but a drive bogged down at the Minnesota 26 early in the fourth quarter. After that, Minnesota turned it into a rout. The Gophers drove 79 yards to send Wilson across from the three, then recovered two fumbles on the Indiana 23 and scored both times. Wilson passed 17 yards to Charley Sanders on a deflected pass for one and kept a yard for the other. The other two on each side figure to get in their licks, a fact that should add to the excitement.
