Swifzer Says Horns Will Be Ready For OU OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma University football Coach Barry Svvitzer believes Texas University will have its pass defense ready for the Sooners Saturday in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. He and five other Oklahoma coaches flew to Austin Saturday after the Sooners' '63-0 romp over Wake Forest in time to see Texas defeat Washington 35-21. SwiUer told a Sunday night television audience, "Texas is the same kind of football team they've been in the past. They are having a little problem with the pass defense right now, but I think they'll work those things out. "They've got a great player in Earl Campbell, a freshman fullback who is unbelievable. And they have a fine freshman halfback in Graylyne Wyatl, and I think these two guys give them a better offensive talent than they've had in the past.'
