The boys who operate the split-T formation for Coach Jim Tatum at Maryland have the figures to back up their argument. They soundly whipped Gen. Bob Ncy- land's Tennessee Volunteers 28-13 yesterday in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans. Illinois, while not corning into direct contact with Tennessee, showed it has a pretty fair country outfit itself by walloping Stanford's Indians, kingpins of the Pacific Coast Conference, 40-7, in the Rose Bowl. Victory by the Illini . was expected but not by any such margin. Maryland ranked third in the Associated Press poll. Illinois was fourth, three notches above Stanford. Head Card Tiie Rose Bowl, granddaddy of all post-season gridiron classics, and the Sugar Bowl headed a nation-wide card of a dozen games which drew more than 400,000 fans, with millions more looking in on the Illinois-Stanford affair at Pasadena, Ciilif.,' via of a na- tinn-wide television hook up. The bowl at Pasadena was packed with the largest turnout, 966,823. while another 82,000 jammed into the Sugar Bowl. i.ew York-(/P)-Phog Allen's »!!.-·· conquering Kansas Jayhawks edged undefeated Illinois as the nation's top-ranking college basket- hall team today in the weekly Associated Press poll. Kansas, pride of the Big Seven and recent conference tournament winner, received 31 first place voles to 23 for the Illini. The Jay- hawks, triumphant In all 10 of Ihcir games, attracted a higher point total to shade the Big Ten stalwart, 7SI to 73D. Illinois' record is 7-0. | In all, 107 sports writeTM and j broadcasters participated in the ] poll. Twenty of them named powerful Washington as the best team in the nation to push the Huskies into third place. The Pacific Coast defending champions have a 9-1 mark. Others to receive first-place backing were: Kentucky and Indiana six each, New York Uni- I'crslly five, Kansas State four, St. Louis and St. Bonaventure three, and Seton Hall, Murray State and West Virginia two each. Kansas' leap from fourth place a week ago to top spot marked Ihe third change in leadership in four weeks. Kentucky led the first week, lost out to St. John's of Brooklyn the second, regained the top rung the third week and fell to fourth this week when upset, Gl-GO, by a spirited St. Louis squad for the New Organs' Sugar Bowl championship. Kentucky, now G-2, received 594 points to fall nearly 100 behind ! Washington's third place 688.

But Kentucky's Wildcats, riding on the arm of Vito Babe Parilli, dumped Texas Christian No. 8, 20-7, before 75,000 in the Cotton Bowl at nallas. Kentucky was ranked 15th. Other Rcsulti Other results in what may be the- last of the big bowl days included: Miami.

M. in the · Prairie; and San Dir-gi* State 34, Hawaii 13. in the Pineapple Bowl at Honolulu. Ed "Big Mo" Mod7.ele\vski and Ed Fullerion, a pair of hard hitting backs from Pennsylvania's coal regions, were largely responsible for ending Tennessee's all-winning streak at 20 games and stretching Maryland's string tif victories to 12. Modzelewski, ripping the Tennessee line to shreds, olttgained t h n entire Volunteer learn a:s he picked up 153 yards in 28 tries. Fullerton scored two touchdowns, one on a 46-yard spring after intercepting a pass tossed b y ' A l l America Hank Lauricella. Defense Tight · The Maryland defense was so tight that the Vols gained only SI yards on the ground and Lauricella was held to a net gain of one yard in seven times he toted the ball. In contrast to the Sugar Bowl fiame--in which Maryland took a 21-0 lead on three touchdowns within seven minutes early in the game--Illinois and Stanford staged a ding dong affair for two periods with the Indians holding a 7-6 half-time advantage. Midway of the third period Stan Wallace, 'lllinjJhalfback. intercepted a pass fron\ Stanford's Gary Kerkorian and sped 54 yards to the Stanford 12. On the third play fullback Bill Tale ripped around right end for five yards and a touchdown. From there on the Illini poured it on. They'didn't score" again jn the third session but posted 27 points in the last quarter. The previous high was 22 made by the Alabama aerial circus of Dixie Howell and Don Hutson in 1935. Scor« 10 Point! A crowd of 66,873 had almost settled for a Baylor victory in the Orange Bowl when the Ramblin' Wreck of Georgia Tech suddenly caught fire in the final four minutes and 'scored 10 points. A' 33"-*yard run by Bill Teas set up the tying touchdown, scored by Buck Martin on a short pass from Darrcll Crawford. Shortly afterwards Pete Ferris intcrcopt- a pass thrown by All-America Isbell and.returned it 40 yards to Baylor's 0. When three .plays netted only three yards, Eodgcrs ipot i diann and NYU.

The Billikins, who now have defeated Kentucky in three Sugar Bowl championships by a total margin ot four points, jumped from 12th to seventh .with points. St. John's dropped a notch lo eighth despite winning bolh of its games during the week. Kansas State also slipped a notch lo ninth because of ita 90-88 overtime loss to Kansas. St. Bonaventure vaulted from far back amQrjg.the alsp-rans all the way. to tenth, place with an important 73-60 triumph over a strong Western Kentucky five.

Tatum and Maryland didn't have to wait long yesterday for those breaks ngainst the national champions. They came in the first naif nnrl Maryland moved brilliantly forward to a 28-13 upset victory. The smooth, even manner in whirli Maryland operated and the great wreckage it wrought on dne of the highest regarded teams of the last 15 years, may prove to be a hi(! 'actor in swinging more crutches and teams to the split T attack. Maryland is the prime example nf split T precision and power. Tennessee this season was the prime example of single wing power. The victory was No. 12 in a row for Maryland. For Tennessee the defeat was the first in 21 games. Specialist For Panama Mission Is Appointed The appointment of Jos? A.

A. ind M. is one of two teams given an outside chance to upset T.C.U. Jor the SWC cage title. Arkansas' luck, not always the best in lt« encounter! with Texan foes, 1» bad to begin, with In the Agitle gam?. Jewell McDowell, the Cadets' mojt polished and d»ni«r- qus player, Is eligible Jor only one conference game--that against. Ark»n»»s. The Agfle "Jewel" graduates «t mld-tctip. Crjoten All-Southwest list «e«- son, McDowell Is « 'comumite master of ball-control «« Aggie mentor .John Floyd coaches It.. The 5-10 senior i! an excellent dribbler, passer " «nd defensive man, has a »re«l eye for th* has kct, and Is tnjp typ! of competitor that gets better In the clutcli. McDowell will be remembered by Arkansas fani for his'stalling tactics In both games between the two schools last season. At College Station the Aggie guard Initiated a stall l«k In the game with the score tied, holding the bill until the final second!. Then he Jlred a long set-shot that dropped through the net for «n Aggie victory. At Fayetlcville the little Agijle did the same stalling trick, firing just before the final'whistle. Jn the game here, McDowell's final shot missed and Arkansai went on to win in an overtime. Arkansas will have McDowell to contend with in only one game, however. But there are other.out- standing men on the A. »nS M. roiter. Big Walt Davis, the Cadets' 6-8 center Is one of the loop's finest pivot men. Davis is the high jumper who cleared the bar at six-feet, nine-inches last year-only two Inches short of the world's record and the best 1 jump of 1951. In the Porkers' meeting with the Aggies in the Conference Tournament at Dallas last week it was Davis more than any other player that turned the tide for A. and M. The big center poured in 22 points while holding the Hogs' Billy Hester In check. Leroy Mlksch, a «- forward, who earned second team all- tournament honors at Dallas last week, is another talented Cadet. Miksch is an agile blond with penchant for driving under the basket and laying the ball up from the back side of the hoop. Tic Is a good scorer, a good reboundftr and a good defensive" player. The long shot threat of the Ca- det.t Is Bobby Farmer, a six-fool guard, who can and does fire from tar out with good results. Farmer and Raymond Walker, a guard, are Coach Floyd's answer to a zone defense and he states that he feels they are good enough o pull most team;; out-nf a"/.otie. All the Cadet startdr.i lire' lel- crmen and excepting McDowell, who has only the one loop flame In 'ronl of him, A. mid M. has eight ettermcn on the 15-mnn squad. Lcttermen on the team include: 3avis, McDowell, Miksch, Fanner, Walker, Bill Carpenler, (l-tl junior, "Xm Garret, 0-3 Junior, Don Heft, 1-10 junior, and Eddie Houscr, 1-0, senior. The Agglen concentrate on de- 'ense, as Is the philosophy of Coach Floyd, which should give Arkansis · fighting chance to gain a win (or two) from them. Usual- y, when two slow breaking teams tangle, the outcome Js decided by rebounding and by shooting accuracy, Arkansas, with n good height advantage, could have a hot night from the field and upset the Ca- deta. The Porkers proved they can do It by blasting through tho A, and M. team for a 22-0 edge In the ·econd quarter .of .their ^otima.- ment g'urne itt Dallas' Shoul'd 'the Arkansas to*m find that scoring eye again it could easily earn the. victory.
