LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Earl Campbell added a new dimension to the term "complete football player." In so doing, he nailed the eof- (iii shut on Arkansas. Campbell is the. Texas fullback and it's his job to run the football and block. Add punt rush to his talents. Campbell, who ramped , 68 yards for Texas' first touchdown when two Arkansas defenders went the wrong way, lined up at noseman when the Razorbacks went into punt formation from the Arkansas 24. A 220-pounder who has been - timed in 4.4 in the 40, Campbell zipped past the blocking back and caught Tommy Cheyne's punt on his arm. Defensive tackle Doug English recovered for a touchdown and it was 17-0 with seconds left in the half. The final was 38-7. 'TELLING BLOW Texas Coach Darrcll Roya called the play the "telling blow." A r k a n s a s Coach Frank Broyles said the punt rush was the same Texas had used foi the past few years. "We had picked it up al week," Broyles said. He said the the back blocking on Camp bell did not gel in front of him "That definitely broke our mo rale." One pressbox wag said wouldn't have mattered. "Texas was too physical They were going to beat thi heck out of them in the seconi half. Arkansas was getting oul muscled." Broyles alluded to Texas muscle and Arkansas' lack it. ; "The amazing thing is tha they take two or three plays and with their power an strength, stay with them," h said. "We don't have In muscle we want to have ope to have as we grow with lis football team." He said one Texas coach had een quoted as saying Okla- oma's noseman and two tack- es were so strortg, they prob- could have stopped the onghorns' running game wilh- help from the linebackers, hat, is muscle. Texas' ability to run inside gainst Arkansas forced the azorbacks oul of their basic efense, Broyles said. He said Arkansas began slunting to ive Texas bad plays, but that le gambling defense allowed he Longhorns lo make the big lays. He : said Arkansas also had lo .bandon its offensive game ilan as the gap widened. So, il is the same old slory.

Texas AM, Baylor and Southern Methodist are unbeat en in the Southwest Conference and Texas is now 1-1. Arkansas dropped to 1-2 and no team has ever won the championship with two SWC losses. "We're nol even thinkini about the conference race,' Broyles said. "Somebody ha: got lo do a lot to help. We havi two losses and Texas seems ti be regrouping. "That wasn't the Arkansa: football team that we were ear lier, physically and mentally, Broyles said. "Our probler now is to find those who wan to play...to find those thai tak pride in discipline." He ' said the hearlbreakin L loss to Baylor Oct. 12 in Fa yetteville had been damaging "You can't shut it out of you mind," he said.

"I'd been getting beat up so much on the tour. Week after week of getting beat up and missing the cut and failing to qualify. I was just so depressed. I almost didn't come. I figured I'd lost my card and have to fight the mini-tours next year and then try to qualify in the school again." He'd played -- or attempted to play -- in 41 tournaments this season.
