10 · Northwest Arkonwi TIMES, Mon., Se'pt. 23, 1974 FAYETTEVILLI, ARKANSA* Cites Turnovers, Field Position, Momentum \ Broy/es Gropes For Explanation Of OSU Contest LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles seemed to be groping for an explanation. He talked about lack of execution, turnovers,- poor field position and momentum. The question: How to explain " Arkansas' 2G-7 loss to Okla- · homa Slate Saturday' night in view of the Razorbacks' 22-7 victory over Southern California the previous week. line, which look off with a rush against USC, did not appear as quick off the ball against Oklahoma State. "I can't account for that," Broyles said. The Razorbacks 1 inability to handle OSU's three down linemen _ Carl Devorce, James White and Philli Dokes -- enabled the Cowboys' linebackers to roam far and wide. "Against the wishbone you can either play the linebackers "I was hoping momentum -- ,..., · from the Southern Cal game base or running," Broyles said. ' would let us play a great "Most teams mix it up, but we · game" Broyles said. "But we weren't able to hurt them were not 'the same football team we were against Southern Cal. We're a better team than we showed Saturday night...a much better team." Broyles said he believed Arkansas had more trouble executing its wishbone against OSU than it did against Southern Cal · because the Cowboys practice against the wishbone. The Razorbacks' offensive enough to keep them from running all the time. They took off with the flow." Arkansas lost the football five limes -- Ihree times on fumbles and twice on pass interceptions. The previous suffered six kansas one. week USC turnovers, had Ar- THREE FUMBLES In the first half, the Razorbacks lost fumbles at their own 29, 23 and 29. That, plus Arkansas' inability to make a first downs acids up to poor field position. The Cowboys were 50 yards or less from the Arkansas goal on five of its first seven possessions. In fact, 'the Cowboys' first eight possessions ended in six field goal attempts, a fourth down try deep in Arkansas territory and a fumble. The Razorbacks had only two "irst downs on their first 12 pos- issions. Broyles said Arkansas was too conservative offensively in the first half. The Razorbacks threw only one pass in the first half and it was incomplete. The 26 rushing plays nelted 41 yards. ' ' T h a t ' s embarrasing, Broyles. said. "We 1 didn't .hayt the ball much, but when we did we didn't do much." He said Arkansas' passing attack lost any surprise factor kind of speed you can really throw the ball. We have the same pass patterns as Alabama, they just don't look like t." Arkansas Yankees Cling Tight To First Place In AL lost its most experienced receiver when Rcg- Jie Craig suffered a knee injury late in the second period. Broyles said the Razorbacks :iad worked on formations other than the wishbone all fall; but that he believed "we're running the offense that best suits the ability of our players." Momentum played a part, Broyles said. The Cowboys had it and nothing happened to turn the tide. "The momentum on Ihe bench was so obvious," he said. "We couldn't get a break to change the momentum. When the other team has momentum, you've either, got to' make a: big play or they've got to make a bad play." Broyles also said his decision By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Yankees are in front in the American League East -but only by one game -- after beating the Cleveland Indians 2-1 Sunday on Bobby Murcer's tie-breaking homer and the four-hit pitching of Pat Dobson and Sparky Lyle. The · second-place Baltimore Orioles remained one game back by whipping the Boston Red Sox 7-2. Boston is now five games behind the Yankees. Elsewhere in the American League Sunday, Chicago beat Oakland 3-1, Texas edged Kansas City 4-3, Minnesola defeated California 6-2 and Detroit nipped Milwaukee 6-5. With the score tied 1-1 and two out in the sixth, Murcer cracked his 10th homer of the season, a blast off Cleveland starter Bruce Ellingsen, 1-1, that sailed over the 371-foot mark in right center. It was his second home run in two days, but only his second of the sea- f the season, helped Baltimore icat Boston again Sunday. Baltimore Manager Earl Veaver feels his club is in pret- y good position, despite being ne game back of the Yankees vith eight games to play, but Boston skipper Darrell Johnon, said "We're just about gong to have to win three in a row now in New York (Tuesday and Wednesday)." Rangers 4, Royals 3 Ferguson Jenkins posted 24th victory of the son at Shea Stadium. Dobson gave up three hits over the first eight innings, but John Lowenstein singled to lead off the ninth. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and. after Frank Robinson walked, took third or a long fly ball Lyle then relieved Dobson and reiired pinch hitter Charlie Spikes on a tapper to the mound to record his 15th save of the season. Orioles 7, Boston 2 Boog Powell's three runs bat ' ted in. including his llth homer because the Razorbacks were .to receive the opening kickoff unable to move the ball on the!was contrary to what he had learned during his coaching career. Arkansas fumbled on the first play and the field position belonged to OSU the remainder of the half. He said he chose to receive because he believed the Razorbacks could move the ball. OSU began the third quarter in a field position hole.' The Cowboys slarled from their, six after the kickotf, but a 16-yard pass play and two face mask penalties led to Abby Daigle's third field goal of the game and a 16-0 lead. It was 19-0 in the third period before Arkansas drove 73 yards ground. "It's obvious we're going to have, to throw more on first down," Broyles said. The Razorbacks have completed 4 of 16 passes in two games for a minus 14 yards. "We don't have a great passing game," Broyle said. "It's hard to have a triple'option offense and a great passing game. Broyles said the Razorbacks lack speed at light end and wide receiver. NOT LIKE 'Alabama has 'KAMA a tight end that runs 4.6 and a wide out that runs 4.4. If you have that or its touchdown. Scott Bull, who relieved Mark Miller at quarterback, salvaged a couple of bad plays and the Razorbacks converted on three fourth-down situations in the OFF-BALANCE OSU's attack kept the Razorbacks off : balancc although the defense did .not allow a touch-, down until late in the fourth period. . ·';' The Cowboys were a wishbone team in name only. They ran counter plays, traps, rollou passes and sweeps instead o option plays. Broyles said OSU ran maybe six wishbone plays, but hac used nothing but the wishbone exclusively in a 53-0 victory , COMPLETE LINE : . : Qf ;·::··, : BUILDING MATERIALS QUALITY MATERIALS at DISCOUNT PRICES B A N K A M E R I C A R D .
