Upsets frustrate

Big Eight

powers

Passing sparks grid upsets;
Rose Bowl still up for grabs

xL

By ELLIOT LEGOW
As the college football season'
passes its sixth week and third
week of conference play, thoughts
begin to turn to bowl games and
eyes turn to conference races.
This was a big week for big sur-
prises, especially in the Big Eight
where upsets were the rule in-
stead of the exception. Perennial
powers Missouri a n d Oklahoma
were both upset by perennial
doormats Colorado a n d Kansas
State.
The Wildcats of Kansas State,
who have never attended a bowl
game in the school's history are
now the sole leaders in the Big
Eight and the favorites to move
on to the Orange Bowl.

there are at least five coaches, the
coaches of the winning teams in
last Saturday's Big Ten games,
who (for at least this week) are
extolling the virtues of a properly
directed forward aerial.
Iowa coach Ray Nagel had to
watch his star quarterback Larry
Lawrence be helped off the field
twice Saturday in the game
against Michigan State, the last
time with only 1:57 left in the
game and the ball resting 33 yards
from the tying touchdown.
Senior Mike Cilek was inserted
at the helm and promptly covered
the distance with two bulletlike
passes. The second completion,
good for 11 yards and a touch-
down, was to Kerry Reardon and
came with only 1:25 remaining.
The margin of victory ingthe
Hawkeyes 19-18 win was provided
by Alan Schulette's PAT. Schnlette
also had two field goals and Lawr-
ence passed to Don Osby for the
other Iowa points.
One of the two Michigan State
scores was on a 63-yard aerial
from Bill Triplett to Steve Kough.
Another Triplett to Kough bomb,
good for 38 yards and a touch-
down, was called back because of
an ineligible receiver downfield in
a play heatedly disputed by Duffy
Daugherty.
