Syracuse has beaten Iowa State (14-13), Wisconsin (43-7) and Maryland (20-9). They went from one extreme in a 15-14 hard-fought loss to powerful Penn State to another in that one-point loss to lowly Pitt. Syracuse's other loss was to Kansas, 13-0. Arizona, of course, has played some rough opponents — but things hit rock-bottom at BYU, where Weber thought his club might come up with its finest game of the season. "Morale is as low as it has been," said Weber, "and now we face three teams as tough as any we've played all year. I think we can raise morale to a pretty good level ... the kids realize they're playing Syracuse and there's lots of prestige to be gained from winning — at least we hope for that." CAT NIPS: More lineup changes for Arizona this week . . . Senior linebacker Tom Cooley, an Arcadia High graduate, has a broken ankle and will miss the rest of the season . . . John Eggold replaces Cooley, defensive safety Justine Lanne returns to a starting lob, Steve Wolfe moves ahead of Greg Woodward 1 In the secondary and John Black returns to a second unit position . . . Gary Kla*ir and John Naegle are wag ng a good battle for starting de-- fenslve left end lob, and Rich Crossman returns to the first unit as quick tackle,, pushing, Joe Hannasch down to second team. Jim Sherman moves wer to center (Doug Rothery has an Injured hand) and Larry McKeo takes over Sherman's offensive guard duties ,. . .And, Jack Ashbv replaces Henry Harrison as split end. That'll free Harrison to help at tight end as second teamer Clarence Fergerson has a bad ankle. » UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA (Seven-game football statistics) f • 'K !'• $ V'--' FORWARD 'San DlegoSt. "Florda ....

He wound up proving it to everyone. All Owens did was carry the ball 53 times — one short of the major college record — for a school record 248 yards and four touchdowns as the Sooners got back on the winning road 37-14. That performance earned him recognition as college football's Back of the Week from The Associated Press. "I'm really glad we don't have to face Owens any more," sighed Iowa State's Johnny Majors. "If you don't have to play against him it enhances any team's chances. Owens is the man who keeps everyone honest. When he just pounds and pounds that middle he opens up the outside game and the passing game." Fairbanks agrees. "If there's a better tailback in the country I'd like to see him," the Oklahoma coach said. "I haven't yet." Owens, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound senior from Miami, Okla., 1 has gained 881 yards, this season and scored 17 touchdowns and is within reach of more records. He needs 164 yards to break the career rushing mark 'of 3,388 set last year by Mercury Morris of West Texas State. And he's one short of the three-year touchdown standard of 51 by Army's Glen Davis in 1944-45-46. With four games left, the one- season record of 24 touchdowns by Arizona's Art Luppino also could go. Usually, Owens carries the ball so often and gets so beat up that he can't unwind until midnight, Saturday, though, he said he could have carried another 50 times. He may have to against Missouri this Saturday in another key Bog Eight scrap. Bowling Tips By Don Cartel Oklahoma would like Pat better than Happy Feller MOVE LEFT FOR 5-7 Picking a split never is easy, but I recommend a method of shooting for the familiar 5-7 that will give you a reasonable chance. Merely move your feet five boards to the left of your normal starting position (see illustration), then aim at the same spot on the lanes that you've been using for your strike ball. You'll have a tendency to roll the ball '5nside"-to the left—of the spot, but if you can go over it, you'll come close to sliding the 5-pin against the 7-pin. Safer grid helmet used DBS PLAINES, III. (AP) If the incidence of head injuries in football is lowered this year some credit might be given new helmets being worn by thousands of pro, college and high school players. Air pads, fluid cells, two types of foam cushions and a rugged plastic shell make up the five protection systems in the new helmet. The headgear, called the Micro-Fit helmet, was developed by Riddell, Inc., of Des Plaines, 111. The helmet is fitted individually to each player's head by use of a small air pump inserted at five inflation pouits on the outside unit. Only two shell sizes are required. The shells are made of Merlon polycarbo- nate, produced by Mobay Chemical Co., Pittsburgh, Pa. Each helmet contains 12 air pads. The company said the helmet prevents the force of a blow to the head from being concentrated \ on a single point. Associated Press AUSTIN, Tex. - An Oklahoma newspaper ran this headline after the 27-17 defeat at the hands of Texas: "Texans All Happy Fellers." What the Big Red cohorts were talking about was James Patrick Feller who is known far and wide as Happy Feller. Rams trail, first also Associated Press NEW YORK - Sixth in total offense, fifth in total defense but No. 1 in pro football as the only unbeaten team in the National Football League. That is the story of the Los Angeles Rams, who have won seven in a row at the half way mark of the season. Dallas, although suffering its first loss last Sunday, still shows the way in total offense with 388 yards per game and also in running offense with an average of 177 yards. The Cowboys also are best defending against the rush, yielding only 62 yards per game. Minnesota is first in total defense with a 199-yard average and also leads in pass defense with only 98 yards per game. The other team leader is Baltimore in passing offense- with 235 yards per game. The Rams have managed to blend a combination of effective offensive play with defense to remain unbeaten. They are 10th in rushing and seventh in passing. On defense they are second in rushing and eighth in passing. However, they do lead in pass rush, smearing the passer 35 times, and are. fourth in effective pass blocking, a department led by Baltimore, which has let the enemy dump its quarterback only seven times for 50 yards. St. Louis also has been smeared only seven times but for 65 yards. The Vikings, never noted for their high-scoring offense until this year,, lead with 207 points and also have given up fewest points, 79.

DIonne Warwick Glen Campbell MIDWAY CHEVROLET 7th Avenue & Grand - Downtown Phoenix Happy had just finished polishing off Oklahoma with his trusty toe—he kicked two field goals and three extra points when he wasn't keeping the Big Red pinned in its territory with booming kickoffs. Texas kicked off six times and Oklahoma managed only one retnrn — that to the Oklahoma 18-yard line. Feller is a deep-dyed villain as far as Oklahoma is concerned. When he plays against the Sooners he makes himself quite obnoxious. As a sophomore last year he booted three field goals, one of which was a 53-yarder a school record, as Texas beat Oklahoma 26-20. Oklahoma had trouble with Rob Layne in 1967 when his field goal led to a 9-7 Sooner defeat. Then along came Feller to beat out Layne in 1968 when Hap had 30 of 32 points after touchdown and eight of 16 field goals. Feller attracts a lot of attention with his name. His mother explains it like this: "James Patrick laughed a lot as a child. It was only natural that we call him Happy." He is a, little ray of sunshine to everybody except Oklahoma which wonders if it might not do better if he were known as Jim or Pat, Nittaiiy Lions, Vols top list DALLAS (AP) - The Cotton Bowl selection committee is carrying 10 teams on its list of candidates with Penh State and Tennessee the top choices. However, Tennessee has already indicated it would like to go to the Orange Bowl. Penn State's Nittany Lions are untied and rank fifth in the latest Associated Press poll. McCormick lost to Antelopes Charles McCormick, former all-conference basketball pick in Arizona junior college ranks, has been lost to the Grand Canyon College Antelopes before the season even started. Head coach Ben Lindsey said McCormick sustained serious ligament damage to his left knee during a practice scrimmage. He underwent corrective surgery Monday. "We will miss him greatly," Lindsey said. "He was the one player who could do everything." Gary Ernst, 6-5 post player, is expected to be switched to forward to fill the void.
