AM, Tech Texas Favored In SWC Games By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas AM, Texas Tech, a n d j Texas are favored to survive Saturday's round of crucial Southwest Conference football clashes but don't wager the family grocery money - unless you can afford to lose it. The Texas Aggies are six- point favorites to whip Baylor. AM is the SWC co-leader with 1 SMU on the basis. of 2-0 records. Baylor has had two weeks to prepare an ambush for the Ag- gies and the Bears know the type chore they have in store. "When they (the Aggies) moke a good play they start clapping their hands in your face and talking to you about how they stopped you--they try to get you upset/' - says Baylor tailback Steve Beaird. "They try to get you discouraged; of course, you don't let them bother you, but they're trying." A record sellout crowd of 50,000 fans will jam Baylor Stadium in Waco for the 7:30 p.m. joust. Baylor is 1-0 in conference play. TECH FAVORED Tech is also a six-point selection over SMU (2-0) in a day game in the Cotton Bowl. Tech tailback Larry Isaac says of the Mustangs "They have a pretty good defensive team. Their nose guard, Louie Kelcher, is a big guy and the one who stops the running game up the middle. "It's a slrange year. Every- Texas is a 19 point favorite over a luckless Rice learn in a night game in Houston. The loser is eliminated from the SWC race because bolh own 1-1 marks. Washington Stands In The Way Cards Bet Unbeaten Skein Sunday By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS! "I don't think we're different from any other team in the National Football League," says St. Louis Cardinals' Coach Don Coryell. Oh, but he's wrong, of course. The Cards are very much different--and they want to stay that way. They want to remain the only unbeaten team in Ihe league. To do so, Ihey've got to knock off George Allen's visiting Washington Redskins on Sunday, the halfway m a r k of the season. Coryell, naturally, isn't talking about being unbeaten. He's talking about the desire every team and every coach has. "All of us desperately want to win. We will use our material the best we can. "Maybe I take it for granted that oilier coaches feel the same way. George Allen has Charley Taylor. We throw to Mel Gray. We run Terry Metcalf. He has Larry Brown." Coryell also has Jim Hart al quarterback--but it's Coryell who calls the signals, shuttling in plays. Hart doesn't seem lo mind that. "It's refreshing," he says. "You get a feeling ol being an 'offensive' offensive team, instead of a 'defensive" offensive team. The Cardinals already have the upper hand over Washing Ion. They beat the Redskins 17 10 in the second weekend of ac tion. Wilh another victory, St Louis would become the first National Conference East team ever to knock off the Allen- coached 'Skins twice in o n e ear. In Sunday's other games, it's Philadelphia at New Orleans, Chicago at Buffalo, Houston at Cincinnati, Denver at Cleveand. Green Bay at Detroit, Baltimore at Miami, Dallas at the New York Giants, Los Angeles at the New York Jets, Mew England at Minnesota, Kansas City at San Diego and 3akland at San Francisco.

Philadelphia will "ace the Saints' Archie Manning, reslored lo a starting role nt quarterback after a one- week benching. Bobby Scott who led New Orleans lo its first road victory in 19 games, is back on the sidelines with a knee injury. Carl Garrett, who rushed for 101 yards last Monday nighl against Green Bay, is expected to get some help wilh the re turn of Jim Harrison. Their running will counter Buffalo's led by Ihe NFL ground-gaining leader, O.J. Simpson. The Bills ho have run off four slraigh victories, also have the league's passing leader in Joe Ferguson The Bengals, 4-2 after las week's disheartening loss to Oakland, has had its problems with non-contenders as well Last month, San Diego bea ncinnati 24-20.
