4C * Northww* Arkamoi TIMJ-S, Sunday, Oct. 13, 1974 FAVITTIVILLI, ARKAHiAl Texas Game "Longest, Hardest" For Sooners i " DALLAS (AP) -- The Okla' ( homa Sooners, so. untested in "'their ; first three ' games that ·^'their biggest worry was whether · the first team was getting .'.enough playing time, did not -.(have to be told they were in a :tough football game Saturday. ( .i; "I tell'jfou one damn thing, '.That's the longest, hardest --game I've ever played in my jlife," said Sooner offensive ...guard Terry Webb as he ^·watched a parade of team- t-inates to the training room ''where aches and bruises were .being tended following Okla- .'· horria's 16-13 victory over hT- D e s p i t e the hard-fought triumph against a Longhorn that some experts made a ..-four touchdown underdog, Okla- · homa Coach Barry Switzer said ^the No. 2 ranked Sooners ^played well enough for no. 1 -recognition in The Associated Press poll. ··I." "We knew we were no four' touchdown favorite and I told '·my team before the game they could expect a tough one," Switzer said. "I think we played Well enough to be No. 1. No. 1 teams aren't immune to penalties and mistakes and there were two good teams out . th'ere. We passed Ihe test." Both teams fumbled twice in the first quarter with both of the Sooner fumbles, inside the Longhorn'ten-yard line. "They were hitting us like THAT!, "Switzer said with, a loud clap of his hands afler he was asked whal caused the early miscues. "And those Texas fumbles were because our defensive players were giving some licks out there too." After Oklahoma took a 7-3 halftime lead, Texas put the pressure on in the third quarter and Oklahoma was in danger o losing for the first time in 19 games. · F r e s h m a n fullback Ear Campbell of Texas ran 12 yards _for a touchdown following a 'poor Oklahoma punt to give Texas a 10-7 lead which was padded' to 13-7 on a 38-yar · f i e l d goal by Billy Scholt. . ·:'. Then the Sooners turned the game around. '; "We turned around adversity after the third quarter, espe -cially in the kicking game, ant -overcame the deficit in the fourth quarter," said Switzer. That kicking ndversy for the sooners stayed around for a vlule longer. A beautifully exe- uted end-around by Oklahoma pring Billy Brooks for the ame tying touchdown on a 40- ard play with 11:14 left. But the extra point try was lot automatic. John Carroll Hissed to the right. When Oklahoma drove to the 'exas 20 later in the quarter Switzer turned to junior Tony DiRienzo to kick the game- vinning 37-yard Held goal with :25 left. "Coach Switzer told me to be ready," DiRienzo said. "We needed the field goal so bad I ust had to make it good. This vas a scary game. I am just glad Coach Switzer gave me he chance to try and kick under pressure." Before DiRienzo's kick Texas lad taken advantage of a 15- 'ard penalty incurred when Jrooks spiked the ball in the end zone after his touchdown. The Longhorn s moved to mid- 'ield and had a , fourth-and-one jlay with about nine minutes ieft when Campbell fumbled after gaining the necessary yardage and Oklahoma recovered. "I wasn't surprised when Texas ran with fourth and one at the 50," said Switzer. "They wanted to win the football game. I didn't think they could drive and score, but I was afraid they might get Scholt in field goal range." "I wpuld go (sack and make that same decision again," said Texas Coach Darrell Royal. "I'd still go for the first. We had the first down made and fumbled.". "I thought about going with Rosey. (Leaks) on the play but went with Campbell since he actually has carried more this season." Royal said he was not happy with the game, but was pleased with his team's efforts. "We're 0-1, but we have, a ray .of hope," he said of the Ixmghorns' Southwest Conference chances. "We don't know how we will look till we get the picture-took." Quarterback Marty Akins said, "Coach Royal had the best game plan I ever saw. If everybody wanted to win as bad as he did, we would ; have beaten them 20 points." Baylor , (CONTINUED. FROM PAGE 1C) -zone' with his kickoff, but that didn't discourage the Bears; ·' McNeil spearheaded a drive · that carried to the Arkansas 33 by gaining 35 yards in five carries. On fourth and three at the 33, Teaff opted for a pooch kick Bill Moore's soft boot bounced back up the field to the 18, ending the third quarter and: signaling Arkansas' go- ahead drive. WHITE SPARKLES That march was highlighted by the running of Marsh White, who gained 48 of the 82 yards in seven carries. . Barnabas White scored the touchdown, his third of the year, from the three-yard line. He seemed to be stopped, but extended the on nine tries and Barnabas White 40 on 12. Miller was limited to .41 yards in 18 carries. For Baylor, Beaird had 80 yards on 20 trips, McNeil 60 on 12 and Kent 50 on seven. The Razorbacks had 225 yards in 59 rushes, to Baylor's 207 on 54. Jackson completed six of nine passes for 84 yards, and Jeffrey added live of seven for 44. Miller and Kirkland were each one for two, for 41 and 31 yards respectively. Kirkland and Moore each punted four times, Kirkland averaging 41.3 yards to Moore's 29.5. For the first time, Jerry Eck- vvood suited out for Arkansas. He didn't play, but he felt the ball back over his head before j loss as much as anyone. "There going down. Little made the were a lot of times I wanted score 17-14, Arkansas, with 7:42 ieft. . ' ' Baylor started a drive from -,-''bad field position, its 19, as Jackson connected with Kent on the first two passes of the second half by either team. Arkansas finally stopped that drive at its 31, but it couldn't stop the last one. Forte led the game's rushers with 100 yards in 18 carries. Marsh White added 57 yards to be in there," he said. "But I'm just not ready yet. I don't think I'll be able to play against Texas, either, hut maybe the week after. We'll see how I do in pads this week." From Arkansas' standpoint, the game was perhaps summed up best by an assistant coach a few moments after the final whistle. He looked down at the field, shook his head and said, "Bleep." Dallas-St. Louis Crucial Match-Up By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For the St. Louis Cardinals, 1966 was a very good year. For the New England Patriots, it was 1964. So is 1974. The Cards, off to their best start since 1966 when they won their first five games anti tied the sixth, go for five in a row Sunday in what must be considered a critical game--critical for the Dallas Cowboys, that is. The Patriots, also unbeaten in four games, haven't done this well at the start of a season in a full decade. Now they take aim at a fifth straight In a crucial game--for the New York Jets. In today's other National Football- League games, it's Miami at Washington in a rematch of Super Bowl VII, Houston at Minnesota to face the unbeaten Vikings, Pittsburgh at Kansas City, Lo S Angeles vs. Green Bay at Mil waukee, Oakland at San Diego, Cincinnati at Cleveland, Buffalo at Baltimore, Chicago at Atlanta, the New York Giants at Philadelphia and New Orleans at Denver. On Monday night, San Francisco, visits Detroit. The ; Cowboys, preseason picks to battle Washington for the National Conference East title, have dropped three in a row, .their longest skid since a five-game tumble In 1965. Mfn nesota beat them 23-21 las' week on' Fred Cox' last-secom IMA goal. Despite the slide and the Car dinals' explosive offense, Dallas ·till Is a.slight favorite. 'The Cow joys have a couple ot big gun* In leading NFI re- ceiver Drew Pearson and rushers hobert Newhouse and Calvin Hill. But the Cards have aces of heir own in No. 2 NFC passer Mm Hart, running back Terry tfetcalf and wide receiver Mel rray, who broke open St. .ouis' game against San Fran Cisco last week with touchdown ·eceptions of 57 and 59 yards ;hat triggered a 34-9 rout. LSU Outlasts Vols 20-10 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Louisiana State overcame four first-half fumbles and got a clutch fourth-down touchdown from quarterback Billy Brous- ·iard Saturday night enroute to a 20-10 Southeastern Conference football victory over Tennessee. It .was LSU's first victory since the Tigers' season opener against Colorado. It left both teams with 2-2-1 records. Broussard, a much-maiigned senior quarterback who rose lo first string status when the Tigers' supposed superstar Mike Miley chose pro baseball over college football, directed the Tigers on two impressive drives. The first covered 75 yards in the second quarter and culminated with Brad Davis going over from three' yards out. The fourth-quarter touchdown by Broussard came after an 80- yard drive, including a 47-yard pass from Broussard lo wide r e c e i v e r Richard Romatri, which set up the More.
