The opposition was then called Oklahoma AM. Saturday night, its Arkansas vs. OSU at Little Rock. Palmer and the Cowboy veterans know what that means. "Playing in Little Rock is a monster with all those people calling the Hogs," Palmer said. "I was so nervous playing there my first two years, both limes I went the wrong way on the first play. Last year I kept telling myself over and over I was gonna go the right way but the first call was '45' and I ran a '44.' The 1973 Arkansas game also brings back fond memories for OSU. The Cowboys wiped out the Razorbacks 38-6, OSU's first victory over Arkansas in six attempls. Arkansas, coming off a 22V upset of Southern California, is a one-touchdown favorite. OSU crushed outrhanned Wichita State 59-0 last week, but Coach Jim Stanley says the victory proved little. "There's no way you can get a picture of your team's real ability unless you play against a team of equal ability," Stanley said. A r k a n s a s Coach Frank Broyles, in response to a question, said he did not think his team would be reliving the USC game Saturday night. He was asking to compare OSU and USC. "We were playing a finesse team Saturday," he said. "This is more of a jaw-to-jaw type offense and defense." Both OSU and Arkansas will use the wishbone offense.

First, those little mistakes continually kept Hamay's of- iense unlracked, then there was a momentary lapse and a pass interception that eventually led to the only Rogers touchdown, and finally there was the rain and a power failure that left UIB field dark and the Indians stranded inside the Oakdale 20 yard line. Ramay coach Gerald Daily had already predicted that the key to stopping Rogers would he , dealing with running back Marly Heyue. The Indians never really shut off the big Rogers runner, but they did slow him down enough to generally stop the Rogers offense. The vivitors took the opening kickoff and showed off Heyno's talents before fourth down showed up on the Ramay 44. 74 Larry Harris (6-5, 248, Jr.) LG 03 Gene Ritz (6-1, 231, Sr.) ti Soph.) c r Jr.) Mark Perrelli (6-5, 251, Gary Chlouber (6-2, 223, 54 Mike Rilz (6-0, 210, Soph.)

Quarterback Todd Darter and running back Curtis Mahone looked impressive with the ball, but the penalties forced a punt from their own 47. - ·;;' In the second period Raijny seemed to have shaken irtpst vestiges of the mistake virus and used Mahone and Darter o move well within Rogers crritory. Mahone was picking up a consistant four to eight i»ards on a nice looking off tac- le play while Darlcr found room running around end. With 4:00 left in the half Mahone jumped into the middle of the defense and funrblcd in the process to end a Ramay threat that began on the Indian 40 and ended on the Rogers 22. Early in the third period Darter was shaken loose from the ball at his own 44 anc Rogers' Marty H e y n e recovered. The Oakdale team was well aware of what a big breal was and capitalized in s h o r I order. It was Heyne bulling his way inside who capped the drive with a one yard burst. Oak dale's Tom Connell tried to con vert the six point lead into eigh but slipped on his way around end. Darter gave the home fans something to cheer about as he very nearly ran the ensuini kickoff 70 yards for a touch down. The Indian quarterback carefully followed his blocking to near midfield and thei jumped through the appropriate West Fork Tops Lincoln 16-8 hole and into the open However, Darter then slippei on the rain slickened turf an 'ell without opposition.
