FS Southside Climbs To 4th In State Poll LITTLE ROCK ( A P ) There was a question In the mlnti of Little Rock Central Coach Joe Fret! Young when his team took the field tor the · second half Friday night. His Tigers supplied the answer. Central trailed Pine Blulf 10-7 at the half in what had been billed as an early showdown between AAAA contenders. "I knew when they went back out there that somewhere there had been a change in the team. I'm always optimistic, but ] knew Pine Blutf was tough. I hadn't given up, but there was a question in my mind whether we could make up the deficit." The Trgers made H, winning 17-16 on Danny Robinson's four yard TD run with 3:23 left in the game and Robert Farrell's extra point. Central impressed the voters in The Associated Press high school football poll with the vie tory and advanced a notch to No. 3. North Little Rock Northcas nnd Little Rock Parkview, tw other 'highly regarded AAAA teams, continue 1-2. Northeas received 13 of the 21 first-placi votes cast by a panel o sportswriters and sportscasters Central is followed by Foj Smith Southside, Blytheville Hot Springs, West Memphis Pine Bluff, Fort Smith Northside and North Little Rock Ole Main. Southside moved up two notches after beating Conway 26-6. Blytheville dropped from third to fifth despite a 14-0 victory over Forrest City. Hot Springs, fifth last week, dropped a notch after struggling to beat Jacksonville 21-7. West Memphis and Pine Bluff swapped places and Northside remained ninth. Ole Main replaced Little Rock Catholic, a 7-0 loser to Little Rock Hall, in the No. 10 slot. Hot Springs Lakeside climbed into the No. 1 spot in A A after beating highly regarded Sheridan 42-8. Paris, No. 1 last week, is second, followed by Wynne. Sheridan and Camden dropped from the rankings. Atkins was an overwhelming choice in Class A with 20 first- place votes. McCrory jumped into the No. 2 spot and Barton remained No. 3. Prescott, N. 2 last week, was beaten by Hope 20-0. Farmington continues to lead the Class B rankings. Murfreesboro replaced Danville as the No. 2 team after the Littlejohns were thrashed by Atkins. De Vails Bluff continues No. 3. Young said he didn't have any magic words at the half of the Pine Bluff game. "We just kind of got together," he said. "We had people standing around looking .... that's from inexperience on de- lense. We had so many penalties offensively that it was hard to get things going in the first lialf." Young said the victory would mean a great deal in the conference race. "I knew they were going to be a contender, and I hoped we were." Young said. He said th Zebras would be even belter when fullback Clarence Stewart returns to the lineup. Robinson's winning touchdown came on fourth and three "We ran a sweep. He got out there and made it on his own He picked his opening and bea them to the flag." Young said the Tiger coach ing staff called the play from the sideline, but elected not to take a timeout. "We felt like if we didn't score, we could get the footbal back so we had to save the timeouts. We weren't sure wha to do. Houston (Nutl) wasn' having a good night throwing We just figured that when you can get someone outside with as much speed as Danny has maybe he could find a way to score. It was a great call he cause it worked." Pie said he was glad Farrel and the holder, Jay Pettit, were participating in the ball game. "They didn't have time to worry about nervousness," he said.

But, oh, what the Arkansas azorbacks did to the fifth- anked Southern California. To ear USC Coach John McKay alk, it was a worse defeat than le 22-7 Scoreboard indicated. In fact, what McKay had to ay was semi-X-rated. "They just kicked the hell out f us," McKay said which cov- rs a lot of ground.

"I would have slept real good Friday night if I had known then how good he (Duniven) would play tonight," said Tech Coach Jim Carlen. Discounting Houston's 21-0 cross-trown romp over Rice because the Cougars are actually Southwest Conference kinfolks and just waiting for play-for- real in 1976, the SWC had a six- for-sevcn day. The only loss was Baylor's 28-11 demise at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners, who found that not only was it difficult to run up the score on the fiesty Bears but that it was all they could do to whip the visitors from Waco. Baylor trailed only 7-5 at the end of the third quarter. In , other games, Southern Methodist shaved upstart North at Arizona State, Texas Tech is at New Mexico, Cincinnati is a!

Junior college transfer Ike Forte gave Arkansas the offen sive spark it needed and line jacker Dennis Winston was in on 19 tackles. Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles said it was sim ply the best defensive game by Arkansas since 1%9. Four 'fro Jan passes were intercepted. "I thought we could b e . Southern California but I never dreamed we could beat South ern Cal and look 'good,' Broyles.said. Texas impressed Darrel Royal who said, "I thought w had a good opening game." Boston College Coach Joe Yu kica was impressed with 'Hon freshmen speed burners Graly: Wyatt and Earl Campbell. "Texas has tremendous tearr speed," Yukica said. CARLEN EUPHORIC Tech Coach Jim Carlen wa euphoric over the debut o Dunive.n. "He probably played as gooi as any quarterback I ever sa in his first start," Carlen saic "There was no doubt in m mind he could play but he hac a lot of pressure on him." AM Coach Emory Bellan spoke mostly his defenders saying "I thought our defens played extremely well." The Aggies recovered four o six Clemson fumbles. Although TCU's win was ver spectacular, Shofner said. "I'n a happy man ... that first on means so much." SMU played North Texas un der the cloud of a two-year pro bation and the fact that fresh man footballer Dwaine State had died earlier in the day o meningitis. Coach Dave Smith admitle. it was very difficult to play th game. But he added after what th school had 'gone trhough lalel it was "veryimpbrtant that w win it." In the Rice dressing room Coach Al Conover dismisse himself quickly from th ·media, saying, "I can't sta long because I have to go re cruiting." LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The! University of Arkansas football team learned its lessons well. The textbooks were game films and tendency charts. The test was a football game. Instead of a grade, the Ra- 'viorbacks got a victory -- a 22-7 upset over fifth-ranked Southern California. Much of the defensive game plan was based on analyzing the success USC quarterback Pat Hadcn had against the Ra- zprbacks in 1973. "We get in trouble last year when we tried to rush him," said Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles. "You have to play man for man pass defense when you rush. Not onco did we rush more than three or four men Saturday night." Broyles said the limited rush enabled five defenders to play nan for man knowing they .voiild get deep help from their -.eammates. "We used any number of ass coverages," Broyles said 'We were using seven or eight rich to double up and triple up m the receivers as indicated by :heir tendency charts. I don' believe I've ever seen a game college or pro, where the quar ·.erback went back to pass st nany times, looked up, am lad to run. Broyles said USC completec line passes behind the line fo big gains against Arkansas las year. Each time Haden looked fo tailback Anthony Davis coming 'out of the backfield, linebacke Dennis Winston would be in thi picture instead of guarding ; one against a hook pattern. "The thing you have got to d gainst a great passer is de iroy his timing and rhythm, royles said. USC Coach John Mckay ha ailed Haden the greatest pass r he had ever seen. Hade ompleted 137 of 247 passes -6 per cent -- for 1,832 yarc ast year and McKay said th Trojans should have throw more. Haden did not complete h 'irst pass Saturday night un .he final play of the third quar- :er. Haden was forced to ur limes to win the ball ame." He complimented the scout |uad for giving the varsity a lolisllc look at the USC of- nsc. "The defensive unit played as ell as any Arkansas defense as in a long, long, long time," royles said. Winston, a sophomore who as converted to linebacker om defensive end, was the ader with 11 unassisted tacks and eight assists. He re eived the game ball. Offensively, Arkansas oper- :ed the wishbone. Broyles said le only disappointing part of -offense was the failure to et a touchdown when close to le USC goal on two occasions, oth times, the Razorbacks set- ed for field goals by freshman leve Little. Broyles said he had wantec run the wishbone since ut that the Razorbacks 1971 hac ot had the necessary material Against USC, halfbacks Ike Forte and Barnabus While anc ullback Marsh White combine! or 219 yards. Forte average! .7 yards a try, Marsh White .6 and Barnabus White 4.3. Forte and Barnabus White arried the ball a total of 3! imes, quite a contrast from tin "ullback-oriented wishbone o "exas. Marsh While had 15 car ies. The Razorbacks made mucl if their yardage inside agains USC, although the first touch lown came on a 27-yard-run b Forte after he had taken )itch from quarterback Mar Vliller on the final phase of th '.riple option. Broyles said a look at th UCLA-USC game last year re vealed that UCLA -- operatin, the wishbone -- had minus 3 ards trying to run oulside gainst USC but bad averaged 5 yards a try up the middle. "The wishbone gives you the lings you want," Broyles said. You're in the same offense oming off the goal, going in or a touchdown and in the middle of the fie 1 d. When · ad such success in the 60s' it idn't make any difference 'here wa were in the field, we ere in the same offense." Broyles said there are, a lim- .ed. number of plays ' in the vishbone and that the emphasis s on execution. "That's why people give up in it...they try to force this or hat. They want fo know, 'Why can't we run wide.' You have to ake what they give y o u . The luarlcrback has to read it ant cave it where the least resistance is. Otherwise, it's a noth ng offense. It's a three-way audible after the ball is snapped.' Mark Miller started the game at quarterback and playei most of the time. He was relieved by Scott Bull. -Broyles said he decided Fri day to start Miller. He said Miller and Bull hac aeen so even throughout the fall that, "If I had my choice, would have run a two-quarter back offense." The Razorbacks threw only two times. One was inlerceptec ercd six turnovers and Aransas one helped explain tlis .Ucomc. Arkansas also has a ood athlete at each position or the first lime since 1970. Safety Floyd Hogan inter- eplcd two Iladen passes. Ha eturncd the firs 1. 66 yards to le USC 32 and set up Forte's ouchdown. Hogan returned anther interception 26 yards to USC 25 and set up the Little ield goal that put Arkansas on op 20-7. The Razorbacks. proved they vere for real when they drove yards for a touchdown and a 7-7 lead on their first posses- ion of the second half. The rive consumed 15 plays, the iggest of which came on third and seven at the USC 30. Miller read the defense cor- ectly and left the ball with Vlarsh White who raced 16 'ards. Arkansas faces Oklahoma it ate Saturday night and Broyles said OSU, which runs he wishbone, would mean a de- ens ive · adjustment from a hree-man front to a nine-man. inc. and the other was an 11-yan loss. "Before the game, I hopei we wouldn't have to throw . pass. That would mean w were moving the ball just lik we wanted to." Broyles, in response to question, said he didn't heliev USC was overrated. "It's one of those ball game that's hard to explain," he sail He said the fact that USC su Beaver Level The Beaver Lake level stood at 1117.42 up .11 from Sunday's 1117.23.

The other eight resulted in five incomplete | passes and three interceptions. · USC's only touchdown came; on a 100-yard kickoff return by j Anthony Davis and tied the score 7-7 midway through the first period. Arkansas kicked away from Davis the rest of the evening. "Life is too short to kick to him," Broyles said. It was the first time USC's offense had failed to score in 71 games, dating back to a 3-0 loss to Oregon State in 1967. Did Broyles dream the Razorbacks' defense would enjoy such success? "I hadn't been smoking marijuana," Broyles said. "I felt like we would have to score STAMP ON A LETTER MARKS IT " ATHRE! CENT A SOMETHING YOU CAN RELY ON WHEN USING READY MIXED CONCRETE.
