(AP) Sophomore quarterback Tommy Duniven rifled three touchdown passes to fleet flanker Lawrence Williams Saturday and Texas Tech shocked sixth- ranked Texas 26-3 for the first Southwest Conference loss by the Longhorns in 20 games. The defending SWC champions, who have captured six consecutive titles opened a brief 3-0 lead on Billy Schott's 40-yard field goal and . were promptly scorched beyond rcc- ognition by the liams bombs. Duniven-Wil- Taitoack Larry Isaac scored on a six-yard run to give Tech a 7-3 lead and the poised Duniven connected on touchdown shots of 77, 15 and 18 yards to the slick Williams who had the Longhorn defenders cross-legged with his darting fakery. It was 26-3 at halftime and the regionally televised game was all over. The 77-yard pass and run put the Jones Stadium crowd of 51,082 fans into'near frenzy. Duniven winged the ball 46 yards into a 25-mile-per-hour wind Williams slipped behind safety ilaymond Clayborn and fielded ,he pass at the Longhorn 40. He galloped untouched to the end zone, taunting Clayborn by waving at him the last five yards. QUICK STRIKES Tech quickly made it 20-3 early in the second quarter on a second touchdown strike to Williams and dazed Texas tianded the ball right back on a Tumble. Sixteen seconds later Duniven found Williams on the third TD pass. It was the first time Tech had defeated Texas since 1968 and was Red Raider Coach Jim Carlen's first victory over a Darrell Royal coached team in liis five years at Lubbock Tech is now 2-0-1 for the season, having oeen tied 21-21 last week by New Mexico.

Carlen ordered Duniven to stay on the ground in the second half as the Red Raiders played conservative offense anc Robinson, Doby Could Be New Indian Pilot CLEVELAND (AP) -- Frank Robinson and Larry Doby were considered the prime candidates Saturday to become major league baseball's first black manager, succeeding fired Ken Aspromonle as pilot of the Cleveland Indians. General Manager Phil Seghn said Saturday he would name' the new manager in the next two weeks. "I have no timetable," Seghi said, "but it will be sometime prior to the World Series because I would like to have the with me at that new man time." Seghi added that a clubhouse confrontation Friday night between Robinson and ace pitcher Gaylord Perry would have no effect on the decision. Perry and Robinson clashed over the pitcher's comment to a Cleveland writer that he would demand $1 more than Robinson makes next season. Robinson's annual salary is $173,000 while Pterry makes $85,000. '·"When I make the decision of who it will he, money will not make the difference or players' attitudes will not make the difference," Seghi said. "I will pick the man because I think he is capable of leading this cfiib to the championship." fAspromonte told the Indians in an emotional clubhouse meeting Friday night he had been told by Seghi that he would not be rehired for next season. There were strong indications that Seghi is ready to break baseball's managerial color barrier by hiring a black. If he does, it will tie either Robinson, the veteran' slugger acquired from California three weeks aog, and Doby, the Indians first base coach and first black player in the American League when he -joined Cleveland in 1948. Rumors had dogged Aspro monte that he was oil the way out as soon as the Indians ac quired Robinson, the only man :o win Most Valuable Player awards in both leagues am ong considered a top candidate 'or a major league managing job. Aspromonte decided to push She issue, asking Seghi wha the GM's plans were for nex year. "We are going to be mak ing a change," Seghi told him Aspromonte then informed Un club of the decision. Immediately, speculation cen Lered around Robinson, wh has done extensive managing ii winter baseball and often pro claimed his interest In a bii league job. "I signed to play one mor year as part of the terms o coming here," said Robinson who feels one more season wi enable him to reach 3,000 hit and 600 home runs for his ca reer. "Everybody knows I wan to manage someday." Also mentioned was Doby who said he had been told h was under consideration for th Indians' job last winter whe he left Montreal to join Cleve land as a coach, "I really don't know what t think." he said. "I know I'n not gonna get upset if Fran gets it. I think it would b wrong for me to be in com petition with Frank. But if h gets it, I have to wonder why came over here."

(AP) - uarlerback laying willi ington with 5:23 remaining followed an interception deep in Notre Dame territory by linebacker Jim Wood and sealed the upset for the Boilermakers. · The loss left the defending national champions at 2-1, as Purdue scored its first victory after a loss and a lio. The Fighting Irish never recovered from a 24-0 first-period deficit, the most points ever scored in the opening quarter against Notre Dame. The Irish failed repeatedly to capitalize on good field position in the final three periods and were halted four times on fourth down thrusts deep in Purdue territory. Terrizzi, a doubtful starter because of a bruised left shoulder suffered in last week's 7-7 tie with Miami, Ohio, was forced to leave the game with 8:42 remaining in the second quarter, with substitute Mark Vital! taking over. Vital! directed the final Purdue scoring drive on five plays, hitting key passes good for 16 yards to former Olympic sprinter Larry Burton and 14 yards to Paul Beery. The triumph was reminiscent of a 28-14 Purdue victory on the same Notre Dame Stadium field in 1950, which ended a 39- game unbeaten string for the Irish.
