V4C Northwmt Arkansas TIMtS, Sunday, Oct. 13, 1974 FAvrrriviLLK, ARKANSAS Texas Game "Longest, Hardest" For Sooners DALLAS (AP) -- The Oklahoma 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 tell you one damn thing, That's the longest, hardest , game I've ever played in rny · ·life," said Sooner offensive ; , guard Terry Webb as lie ..watched a parade of leam- ; mates to the training -room where aches and bruises were being tended following Okla. ^homa's 16-13 victory over ..-Texas. :,' D e s p i t e the hard-fought : ".triumph against a Longhorn ..-team 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. "We knew we were no four- ·-touchdown favorite and I told '"my team before the game they ooiild expect a tough one," Switzer said. "I think we played well enough to be No. 1 No. 1 teams aren't immune tc penalties and mistakes anc there were two good teams out there. We passed the test." Both teams fumbled twice in the first quarter with both o! the Sooner fumbles inside the Longhorn ten-yard line. "They were hitting us like THAT!, "Switzer said with loud clap of his hands after he was asked what caused the ear ly miscues. "And those Texas fumbles were because our de fensive players were givini some licks out there too." After Oklahoma took a 7- halftime lead, Texas put tin pressure on in the third quarte and Oklahoma was in danger d losing for the first time in 1 games. F r e s h m a n fullback E a r Campbell of Texas ran 12 yard for a touchdown following poor Oklahoma punt to giv Texas a 10-7 lead which wa padded to 13-7 on a 38-yarc field goal by Billy Schott. Then the Sooners turned th game around. . "We turned around adversit; .after the third quarter, espe cially in the kicking game, an 'overcame the deficit in th fourth quarter," said Switzer. That kicking adversy for the ooners stayed around for a hile longer. A beautifully exe- .ited end-around by Oklahoma jring Billy .Brooks for the ame tying touchdown on a 40- ard play with 11:14 left. But, the extra point try was ot automatic. John Carroll lissed to the right. When Oklahoma drove to the 'exas 20 later in the quarter witzer turned to junior Tony DiRienzo to kick the game- inning 37-yard field goal with :25 left. "Coach Switzer told me to be eady," DiRienzo said. "We ceded the field goal so bad I ust had to make it good. This vas a scary game. I am just lad Coach Switzer gave me he chance to try and kick un- ,er pressure." Before DiRienzo's kick Texas aad taken advantage of a 15- 'arc! penalty incurred when Brooks spiked the ball in the :nd zone after his touchdown, "he Longhorns moved to mid- ield and had a fourth-and-one play with about nine minutes eft 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 lame. I didn't think they could Irive and score, but I was afraid they might get Schott in field goal range." "I would go [oack and make mat 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 Longhorns 1 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 FHOM 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 by the running of Marsh White, who gained 48 of the 82 yards in seven carries. Barnabas White scored the touchdown, his third ot the year, from the three-yard line. He seemed to be stopped, but extended the ball back over his head before 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 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 five of seven for 44. Miller and Kirkland were each That march was highlighted one for two, for 41 and 31 yards respectively. Kirkland and Moore each punted four times, Kirkland averaging 41.3 yards to Moore's 20.5. For the first time, Jerry Eckwood suited out for Arkansas. He didn't play, but he felt the 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 left. 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, but 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-Si. 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 ga-mes and 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, Los Angeles vs. Green Bay at Milwaukee, Oakland at San Diego, Cincinnati at Cleveland, Buffalo at Baltimore, Chicago at Atlanta, the New York Giants at Philadelphia and New Orlean 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. Minnesota beat them 23-21 last week on Fred Cox' last-second field goal. Despite the slide and the Cardinals' explosive offense, Dallas itill is a slight favorite. The Cowboys have a couple of big guns in leading NFL re. ceiver Drew Pearson and rushers Robert Newhouse and Calvin Hill. But the Cards have aces of their own in No. 2 NFC passer Jim Hart, running back Terry Metcalf and wide receiver Mel ray, who broke open St. Louis' game against San Francisco last week with touchdown receptions of 57 and 59 yards that triggered a 34-9 rout. LSU Outlasts Vols 20-10 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -Louisiana State overcame four first-half fumbles arid got a clutch fourth-down touchdown from quarterback Billy Broussard 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-maligned senior quarterback who rose to first siring status when the Tigers' supposed superstar Mike Milcy 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 to wide r e c e i v e r Richard Romain, which set up the score.
