Arkansas would kick off. Tula would turn the ball over. Aransas would score.. The procedure was almost itualislic. Tulsa turned the ball ver five times following Aransas kickoffs and the Razor- acks scored on each occasion, n fact, the Razorbacks scored n an almosl unheard of eight traight possessions. The result fas a 60-0 victory. Arkansas covered a total of 0 yards -- the length of one Jood drive -- for five touch' downs. "When you score 60 points, he defense is'super," said Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles. The Razorbacks 1 ust that. defense was statistic: Tulsa's carrier and top Check this cading ball passer was Steve Largent -- a vide receiver. Largent gained 4 yards on a reverse and competed one pass for 37 yards. Tulsa had minus one yard to- al offense in the first half and did not make a first down until it was 53-0 with 5:36 left in the third quarter. "Our defense Â· demoralized Tulsa the most any team I've ever been associated with," Broyles said. "It startled me. 1 thought Tulsa could move the ball running and passing." Arkanas led 32-0 at the half. "It's been a long time since we had a game where we could relax by halftime," Broyles said. "I enjoyed it." Broyles said the benefits ol the victory were threefold: --The number of plays the of fense got an opportunity to exe cute because of the dominating defense. BUILT MORALE -The morale built by playing 78 players. "We played everybody that is not being red- shirted." --The confidence and pride .he defense gained by its suc- css. Broyles said he met briefly with Tulsa Coach F. A. Dry following the game. "I said I had no idea things would happen like they did." Broyles said. "He said he didn't either. That was about the extent of our conversation.' Broyles said the Razorbacks arc still not as good offensively as he hoped they would be, but said he expects continued improvement because the Arkansas offense is the same any where on the field. He said that means repetition and repetition meants improvement. "I don't know of anybody but a fool-em type team that can je as good at this point as they are in November," he said. Arkansas again made good use of the straight-ahead hand- offs to the halfbacks. The play worked successfully in the season opener against Southern Sal, but was abandoned against Oklahoma State. Broyles said Arkansas lines up its halfbacks five yards or less from the line of scrimmage whereas the halfbacks on other wishbone teams are one-half yard to one yard deeper. "This means you can attack with a quick hitting play from end to end with the halfbacks," he said. "This means you have quick plays with somebody beside the fullback." He said the coaches had de ermined that the wishbona plays work just as wel! from he alignment. BOTH IMPRESSIVE Broyles was again asked about using more than one quarterback. Mark Mill er, the starter the [irst three games, scored twice Saturday, once 'on a 62-yard run. Scott Bull. Miller's relief, scored .twice and t h r e w one touchdown pass. "I don't see one being better than the other," Broyles said. "Plus, we feel we want to have two quarterbacks available for this offense. "We've still got work to do. Mark and Scott have been around a long time, but they haven't played much." Miller injured a knee in the spring of 1972 and sat out. the 1973 season. Bull was also sidelined last season when he injured a knee in August.

But Baltimore remained one half game ahead of the Yankees in the chase for the American League East flag by nipping the Milwaukee Brewers 43, the winning run scoring on four walks in the ninth inning.
