OAKLAND (DPI) — Quarterback Dan Pastorini of Santa Clara played in the shadow of Stanford's heralded Jim Plunkett this season. Saturday, he found his place in the sun by leading the West to a 17-13 triumph over the East in the annual Shrine game. West coach Eddie Crowder called Pastorini "one of the most remarkable players I've ever seen." The pro scouts among the 54,000 fans agreed. Pastorini, v/hose college campus is located near Stanford, was voted the game's most valuable player. Sandwiched in between college bowl games and pro championship contests, the East-West game could have been lost in the flurry of weekend football. But an explosive opening kickoff runback and a hair- raising finish gave the fans their money's worth. More importantly, the 46th annual charity game gave some needed funds to- the Shrine hospital for crippled children. The West returned the opening kickoff on a 99-yard reverse for the first score. Norman Thompson of Utah took the kickoff on the one, ran 12 yards, then handed it off to Missouri's Mel Gray, who streaked down the Wesleyan resumes conference action B y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Titans of Illinois Wesleyan, somewhat weary of a heavy holiday schedule, can now concentrate on defendi ng their College Conference of Illinois-Wisconsin basketball title.

From here on in, Wesleyan has only its conference schedule to worry about and that resumes Wednesday night when the Titans host Wheaton. After the Wheaton game Wesleyan has a six-day rest and then winds up the season with 13 straight conference games. Millikin, with a 3-0 record, and North Central, with a 1-0 mark, are the only other undefeated teams in CCIW competition. Millikin journeys to the Chicago area over the weekend with engagements at North Park Friday and at Wheaton Saturday. North Central's only conference action this week is a tough invasion of Auguslana Wednesday night. The rest of the CCIW action is slated for Saturday with North Park at Augustana and Carroll at Elmhursl. Non- conference action this week finds Elmhurst at Lake Forest Thursday and Carthage at Lakeland and North Central at Aurora Saturday. Wesleyan wasn't the only nonconference 1 o s er last Saturday. North Park was defaeted by Illinois Tech 74-72 and Hope smothered Elmhurst 85-69. Millikin, however, came up with a 9486 triumph over Indiana Central. sidelines the rest of the way. The East came roaring back with the tying touchdown, going 75 yards in 13 plays. Mike Adamale of Northwestern carried it over the final one yard for the score. The West regained the lead early in the second period when Pastorini booted a record-breaking 4 2 - y a r d placement goal. A drop kick of 44 yards in ! by Frosty Peters of the Olympic Club still stands. Pastorini added what proved to be the game- winning touchdown in the third period with a 45-yard scoring bomb to Gray. The Santa Clara product figured in all the West scoring, as he also booted two extra points. Even with Pastorini's heroics, the East wasn't finished late in the final period. Jeff Wright of Minnesota picked off a pass by Dennis Dummil of UCLA on the East six and ran it back for a score. The East got the bal Iback after the kickoff and had a chance to win the game, but fumbled away its opportunity on the West 38. For some players, the game marked the end of their college football days. For others, it was only the beginning of post- season contest.

In an amazing turnabout on New Year's Day, Notre Dame, upended top-ranked Texas 24-11 while underdog Stanfoi'1 smashed No. 2 Ohio State 27-17 in the Rose Bowl before third-rated Nebraska edged Louisiana State 17-12 in Miami. Tennessee, No. 4 ripped Air k Force 34-13 in the Sugar Bowl as expected. Notre Dame, 10-1, avenged last year's 21-17 defeat to the Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl while ending Texas' winning string at 30 consecutive games. "Hell, yes, we're Number one,' 1 shouted Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney after the Huskers bowl victory." "We're the only undefeated team," Devaney said after Nebraska closed out its season with an 11-0-1 mark. Ironically, the only mark on Nebraska's schedule was an early season 21-21 tie with Southern California. It was the same Trojans who administered Notre Dame's defeat, a 38-28 beating which could be a decisive factor in deciding the No. 1 team in the nation. The board of selectors for The Associated Press vote early this week in the final poll of the season. "It was a dream come true," said Nebraska quarterback Jerry Tagge, who guided the Huskers to victory, referring to the earlier upset losses of Texas and Ohio State which put Nebraska into its favorable spot. Another team that played both Nebraska and Notre dame was LSU, which lost to the Irish 3-0 earlier in the season and Ctiach Charlie McClendon of fifth ranked LSU leans toward Nebraska for the No. 1 spot. "They're (Nebraska) the same type team as Notre Dame. Nebraska's got a real lough offense and they're going to be No. 1 so they've got to be better." Coach Ara Parseghian of sixth-ranked Notre Dame- called his dressing room "the most exciting I've ever seen in 21 years of coaching. You've got to reaii/,e these guys just broke a 30-game winning streaK. But that's what streaks are for ... to be broken." Parseghian helped win the game with a defensive strategy which mirrored the famed Texas Wishbone offense. "We wanted to force Texas into a passing situation, to make them come out ol their full-house b:»ekfield." It worked and the Irish have hopes for Hie No. 1 spnl. The other big shocker was No. 12 Stanford's victory over Ohio Stale. Stanford, <)-I). led by Heisman Trophy winner .Inn Plunkett, rallied in the second half for a crushing victory over Ohio State, !l-l A 35-yard completion by Plunked in the third period set up the Stanford touchdown that put the Indians ahead to stay, 20-17.
