Forming the interior line are tackles Jerry Siscmore of Texas, and John Vella of Southern California, guards Reggie McKenxic of Michigan and Royce Smith of Georgia and center Tom Brahaney of Oklahoma.

Patulski, a monstrous 26S- pounder, reportedly could be the first pro draft pick if the Buffalo Bills continue at the bottom of the National Football League. Jacobson won the Outland Trophy as the nation's best interior lineman. Glover is the reigning Lineman of the Week for his aa tackles In Nebraska's 35-31 victory over Oklahoma and Long, a 24- year-old Marine veteran, won the Navy Cross for gallantry beyond the call of duty in Vietnam when he single- handedly wiped out an enemy machine gun nest The linebackers are Dave Chancy of San Jose Stale, Jeff Slcmon of Stanford and Mike Taylor of Michigan with Noire Dame's Clarence Bills, Tennessee's Bobby Majors and Tom Myers of Syracuse in the secondary.
