Hogs, Horns Tight For Survival' NerthwMt Arltanta* TIMES, Monday, CM. 14, 1974 rAYKTTKVILLE, ARKANSAS New Faces Head SWC Chase By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dream again of 1924 "Bear Backers" and circle Oct. 2G oh your calendar. Baylor Coach Grant Tcaff's gritty little crew put a 21-17 Shock on heavily fevered Arkansas Saturday and suddenly the Southwest Conference football race was like it used to be before Texas captured the [lag 'six consecutive years. ' : Baylor, Texas AM and "Southern Methodist are tied for the top slot with 1-0 records. Texas AM joined the lop of the ladder in a most impressive 'fashion with a nationally televised 28-7 rout of Texas Tech ·which had flayed Texas the week before. In Fort Worth, SMU mangled Texas Christian 33-13. · And don't count out Coach Darrell Royal's Longhorns--not after the way they gave Ok la- loma all it could handle before 'he second-ranked Sooners survived 16-13 on a late, late field goal. Meanwhile at South " Bend, Ind., pesky Rice gave Notre Dame fits before falling 10-3. SWC historians always point out it has been since 1924 that Baylor has claimed the league crown. The Bears beat Arkansas Saturday for the first time since 1966 and will get a week of rest before hosting the powerful Texas Aggies in Waco n what should be quite a showdown. AIM hosts TCU Saturday, Arkansas is at Texas in a nationally televised game' which has turned into a battle of survival, and Rice is at SMU in Saturday's SWC fare. "This is the biggest win of my career," bubbled Teaff in the lockerroom after stumpy Steve Beaird scored from the one in the final minute to defeat Arkansas. Baylor carved out 335 .yards from the tough Arkansas defense and Beaird said "We ha} the, best team, I guarantee you that." Bear quarterback Neal Jeffrey guided Baylbr to the winning touchdown despite a bro- sen nose suffered in the first quarter. Sub Mark Jackson took the Bears to two touchdowns earlier. . .' : "I've got two real winners at quarterback," Teaff said. "I hadn't planned on playing Mark, but when Neal went out with that hit on the nose, he had to play and did a superb job. Then Neal came back to direct the winning touchdown." Ashen-faced Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles said "It is one of the toughest defeat; that I've ever suffered." Teaff, hugging the game ball, said "You have to crawl before /on can walk. Now, we're walk- ng." There were shouts of "Cotton Bowl. ..Cotton Bowl" from the AM players after the thumping ,of Tech. .... ".'. Aggie Coach Emory Bellard said "When everything goes right, we can play defense as good as anybody in the country." Tech Coach Jim Carlen added "AM was physical...very. very, physical. " And it looks like, folks, that's the way things are going to be the rest of the season in whai has become a wild, wild SWC chase.
