Arkansas lias gained that advantage by virtue of a 15- gamfi winning streak dating back to 1959. The Frogs are underdogs again this year for their game with Arkansas at Fort Worth Saturday night, but were encouraged by a strong showing in a 9-7 loss to Minnesota last week. TCU's defense was in the| spotlight in the Minnesota 1 game. Led by safely Terry Drcnnan's 14 tackles, the defensive unit completely corraled Minnesota All-America candidate Rick Upchurch, holding, him to 28-yards rushing. For the third consecutive game, TCU made a great goal- line stand. This.time the Frogs stopped the Gophers on four plays from the TCU 12 with Drennan making the big fourth- clown stop. -TCU fullback Mike Luttrell. twice an All-Southwest Conference consensus pick, now has l,i)59''career rushing yards. That leaves him 659 shy of the legendary Jim Swink's school career mark with eight games left. · Luttrell, the SWC's leading receiver, caught two passes against the Gophers lo up his season total catches to 13.

HOME RUNS--Schmidt, Phi, By BILL KENNAN Of the TIMES Sports Staff The Woodland Cowboys a r e still looking for their first win of the season this week while the Ramay Indians are hoping to remain on the winning side of the ledger. The Cowboys play Rogers Oakdale this week- at Harmon Field while Rarpay is on (he road this week with the Harrison Goblins. The Cowboys played well last week yet escaped with only a 0-0 tie with Springdale Central in what turned out to be an all out defensive struggle. The Pokes completely siiut dowr Central's offense while moving pretty well on their own, bu not good enough to score some points. "We watched quite a bit of film this week," said Wood land head coach D i c k Harris. "I think our kids realize tha we broke down. We threw passes to the wrong people; we made bad cuts and our hacks weren't hitting the right holes.' It was the kind of thing tha Harris and his aides could do nothing about but watch .. horror. "We knew it was happening during last week's game, but we couldn't do any thing about it. Our line die! a good job, but our backs jus weren't getting through the holes," philosophized Harris. It was actually' the defens- that kept the Pokes in goo position last week and looking at Rogers this week's opponent it will take another good defen sive effort to win. "We playcc good defense' last week.' r e m e m b e r e d Harris. " B u Rogers has a good sized tearr and an outstanding runnin back in Marty H e y n e. It wil ;ake another real good etfor from our defense plus tewe mistakes from our offense t win this week." On paper the whole situatio looks pretty promising for th "I really think the Lord had something to do with this ball- game," said Pittsburgh catcher Manny Sanguillen. "I just thank God we were able to do The Lord may have helped but Chicago catcher Steve Swisher didn't hurt either as the Pirates clinched the National League East Division championship Wednesday night with a wild 5-4, 10-inning victory over the Cubs. Chicago had the game won with two -out and a man on third in the bottom of the ninth. Cubs' right-hander Rick Reuschel .struck out pinch hitter Bob Robertson for what would have been the final out but Swisher let the pitch get away from him for a passed ball and Sanguil- len raced home from third to send the game into overtime! One inning later Sanguillen drove in the winning run with f. bases-loaded infield single and he Bucs were on their way to he National League playoffs. They wind up VA. games ahead of the runnerup St. Louis Cardinals who were rained put at Montreal. That game will not ]e made up. The Pirates start the best-of- ve NL playoffs Saturday afternoon against Los Angeles in Pittsburgh. Elsewhere, ,Los Angeles edged Houston 5 4 in 10 innings; Atlanta bombed Cincinnati 13-0; Philadelphia shaded New York 3-2 in 10 innings and San Diego dumped San Francisco 9-5. Chicago unloaded on Pirate starter Jim Rooker for four runs in the first and the Bucs spent the rest of the night playing catch-up. Robertson, who celebrated his 28th birthday Wednesday by turning in the game's big play -- the clutch ninth-inning strikeout -- drenched Manager Danny Murlaugh, a non-drinker, with a gallon of milk. Braves 13, Reds 0 Hank Aaron closed out his eventful season with his 20th homer, No. 733 lifetime, but refused to say ,it was his last _ame. He said earlier in the season this would be his last campaign, but has been having second thoughts lately. Phil Niekro hurled a four-hitter for Atlanta to become the National League's second 20- game winner. Dodgers S, Astros 4, 10 Innings John Hale singled and Lee Lacy doubled him home in the 10th to give reliever Charlie Hough, 9-4,-the win. Phillies 3, Mets 2, 10 innings Bill Robinson won it for Philadelphia with a sacrifice fly off starter and loser Jon Matlack. Padres 9, Giants 5 San Diego scored four times in the ninth win it. owboys. The Woodland defense iayed well enough to win and le offense with Greg Montez, oe West and Brett Parker, has he talent to score points. But vhen the kickoff Whistle is lown it will all boil down to hciher the offense can avert nough mistakes to put some aluable points on the board. RAMAY VS. HARRISON Ramay head coach Geralc iaily will take his g r o u p of lamay Indians all the way to larrison for a contest with a joolin team that has not lost a game in two years. "They lave a fine team," said Daily. 'They have good size and a ine running back. On defense hey have tile best junior high inebacker I've seen. I'd com pare him with Ned Parette who ilayed for us last year. We bought Parette was a fine player then. Otherwise theii jersonnel is just about like lurs. 1 think we can play pretty evenly with them." The Indians are still withoul he services of Curtis Mahone a standout tailback, hut the res of the offense seems to have aken up the slack in style. Th Tribe seems pretty confiden about the offensive abilitj vhich, this week, will includi he option and a few more lasses. "We'll run the option his week and try to use ou wingback a bit more. Then too f we get good field position we'll let Todd Darter throw." Danny Wallers, an eight! grader, will get a shot at starting position this week He'll move in with the offens at wingback. Gregg Hall is stil hurting from a leg injury an will probably see only limite duty. In his place D a i 1; will use Mike Dillard. Ii addition. Mark Lichtner wi move into the defensive secom ary. "Really this is the best wee practice." Daily concluded Our kids have really worket ard to get ready for Harrison think we're going lo play a ood ball game."

For the first time this season,, , uttrell had some help in the lining department. Ronnie ttleloti averaged six yards per arry (7 for 42 ) against the ophers and also caught a uchdown pass. "This is what we've been oking for all year," said ach Jim Shotner, "someone take some of the pressure f of Luttrell. Ronnie showed ime sparks that should help s. A back has lo have the jility lo pick up some yardage n his own. : "You can't expect the line- icn to knock everyone down i every play. Ronnie did this gainst Minnesota and I think ow that our opponents will ave to respect him outside." . Shofner also praised the play ' freshman wide receiver Mike cnfro. The son of former pro real Ray Renfro caught three asses for 50 yards, and had 41-yard run on a reverse to et up TCU's touchdown. He 'is veraging 16.4 yards per eception. "I've said all along that Mike i a super talent and I still ay so," says Shofner. "He has real hands and feel for the all and is the type who can o something with it after making the catch. AN INCH AWAY "We're just an inch away rom being a good football earn. I've been saying that if our defense could hang in there or a couple of weeks until our offense caught up then we could play with people. Well, that ime had better be now because we open Southwest Conference llay with Arkansas. \ "I felt pur offense really came into its own in lliat last drive against Minnesota. We were able lo move Ihe ball the lenglh of Ihe field in the last minute when they knew what we had to do - pass. · ; "Lee Cook showed a lot ot poise at quarterback in that jrive despite the fact that h'e lad been intercepted three limes. A good quarterback has lo shake off the bad things and Lee did. "I think our defense can play with anyone. They are little but make up for it with their scrappy play. Actually, they didn't give up a point against Minnesota as their touchdown and field goal came after turnovers. "I'm pleased with our team. We have improved each week and I think we will continue to do so. 1 Ihink we 'will surprise some people this season.-' Fall Ozark Society Meeting To Be Held In Russellville By AUBREY SHEPHERD TIMES Outdoor Writer This Saturday the annual fall meeting of the Ozark Society is to be held in the Student Center Ballroom on the campus of Arkansas Polytechnic College in Russellville.
