FACTS Sports Editor Today's the day of the classics. Nebraska against Oklahoma and Texas A&M against Texas, The Gomhuskers and Sconces play,for the Big 8 championship, nation-wide prestige and a possible national championship. The Aggies and Longhorns play. . .well what more really needs to be said?. In the classic tradition, both Turkey Day games feature a matchup of a great offense going against a super defense. It would be hard to find anywhere two better defensive football teams than Nebraska and A&M while Oklahoma has perhaps the finest collegiate offense ever assembled this season and Texas is famous for its devastating Wishbone. Everything else beinc equal, the defense Vi- v '.e given th«- *»* ,, matchup $»*• ,.., which should o .sebraska a solid two or three touchdown favorite, .'except the game will be played in Norman. .Still the Cornhuskers just seem to have too much of everything for the Sooners to handle. ; In College Siation it will be a slightly different story. There everything else is not equal as the Aggies' have nothing that even slightly resembles an offense. A Southwest Conference head coach may have summed it all up last week when he told the Facts: "The game is strictly a tossup as far as 1 am concerned. The Aggies have a three-times better defense than Texas and Texas has a three-times better. offense A&M enters the game the Cinderella team of college football but that Is slightly misleading. The seniors and juniors on this season's Aggie squad are unquestionably the finest athletes on any team in ".o S\VC and they rate in the top two or three in the country in this respect. • At the same time they have been bogged down in dissension, rumors, injuries and fumbles. . .fumbles. . .fumbles. If the Aggies play sloppy offense today they will be murdered. If not than the defense is good enough to register the win. The key to the game, in ,other words, seems to rest with the Aggies. They have the belter athletes, the question is just how bad do they really want to win. The guess here is not enough. Make it Texas 24, Texas A&M 10 and Nebraska 38, Oklahoma 17. ByANDYDeSHAM Sport* SUlt It's thnt time of year ngaln. It Is time for dans B playoffs to begin. There arc a few new fnews In the bl-distric( level, but there arc also some faces of regular veterans In the lineup. Dnnbury and Chester are at It again, for (he second time In a row. The only difference is the location of the game. Instead of the Panthers hosting Chester on Arigleton's field, they have to travel to the outermost regions of East Texas, somewhere near the Big Thicket. Woodvllle Is the new site for the game. Woodvillo is east of Livingston on Highway 59. There Is no real problem In getting there. The biggest problem, according to Danbury's coach David Jennings will be the Yellow Jackets. , "We have a slight edge over them," reported Jennings, "but we will hare problems with them. It won't be any runaway like last year." The runaway Jennings spoke of Is a 44-12 rout the Panthers put on Chester last year in Anglcton. The halttlme score was 14-12 Danbury In that contest, showing evidence of an all-Danbury second half. The warfare this year between Danbury and Chester has taken on a different complexion. Between the two schools, a total of eight seniors have graduated. That isn't very many people to lose, if the losses are equally THE HRAZOSI'OHT FACTS, Freeport, Texm, SPORTS Thursday.
