PITTSBURGH - Quarterback
Ronnie Stanley tossed two fourth-1
down touchdown passes, the sec-j
ond a 12-yarder to sophomore'
Jim Ingram in the final period,
and Baylor downed Pitt 16-13 yes-
terday in their first football meet-
Stanley's second scoring heave1
climaxed a 92-yard march and
brought Baylor from behind withI
8:46 remaining. He threw threeI
yards to Bob Lane in the third
period for Baylor's first touch-
All of Pitt's scoring came in
the second quarter following two
Baylor miscues.
In the waning moments of the
game, Pitt drove 55 yards to Bay-
lor's nine but a fourth-down pass
from the 12 by Jim Traficant into
the end zone was incomplete.
Baylor's winning drive was
started by fullback Ronnie Bull's
39-yard dash from his own seven.

LINCOLN, Neb.-Arizona's ex-
plosive backs put together a 79-
yard touchdown march in the third
quarter yesterday to force a 14-
14 tie with Nebraska in an in-
tersectional grid clash before 33,-
For the visiting Wildcats, bid-
ding strongly for national recog-
nition, it snipped a seven-game
win string extending into last'.kpa-
Outmarched and outpassed, Ne-
braska capitalized on two breaks-
a first quarter pass interference
penalty called on Arizona and a
third quarter wildcat fumble-to
garner its points.
The pass interference penalty
which set Nebraska up for its
initial touchdown developed when
Major League

Nebraska quarterback Dennis I
Claridge attempted a long down-
field toss.
The penalty cost Arizona 38
yards and put Nebraska in posi-
tion on Arizona's 5. Claridge's
four-yard pass to Jim Huge pro-
vided the touchdown.'
A desperate Arizona bid for vic-
tory in the fourth quarter got its
sendoff on a 34-yard run by
Thompson to Nebraska's 12. But
two penalties totaling 20 yards
forced Arizona back and an at-
tempted 40-yard downwind field
goal try fell short.

AUSTIN - The University of
Texas Longhorns stampeded a
scrappy but badly outclassed Tex-
as Tech team 42-14 last night.
The victory put sixth nationally
ranked Texas on top of the South-
west Conference football heap by
taking the first conference game.
The Texas football machine no
sooner got the ball than it began
to grind out yardage and scores.
When the final gun sounded, the
Longhorns had run up a stagger-
ing 391 yards rushing to Tech's
The story was told in the first
half when the Steers went to the

dressing room with 35 points to
the Red Raiders' 7. The last half
was merely postscript, written
mainly by Texas reserves.
Halfbacks Saxton and Jerry'
Cook each scored twice for the
Longhorns after fullback Ray Po-
age had made the initial tally.,
Quarterback Johnny Genung scor-,
ed Texas' final touchdown with
less than two minutes to play.

MOBILE, Ala.--Alabama's sput-
tering Crimson Tide defeated Tu-
lane's stubborn Greenies 9-0 last
night on breaks. The Tide failed
to add to its national stature in
the luckluster contest.
Both 'Bama scores came after
Tulane fumbles early in the first
quarter and late in the third.
The Tide scored on a 44-yard,
eight-play drive after 4:30 in the
opening stanza following Butch
Wilson's recovery of a fumble by
the Greenies' George Oechsner.
Fullback Mike Fracchia got it
to the Tulane eight on two line
cracks sandwiched around an in-
complete pass. On fourth down,
Ken Davis booted- a field goal
from the 25.
* * *
A heavy dew made ball handling

difficult and the two teams fum-
bled a total of 11 times. 'Bama
bobbled six times and lost the ball
on three. The alert Tiders re-
covered four of Tulane's fumbles.
The Greenies mounted only one
threat when they recovered Ray
Abruzzese's fumble of a punt on
the Alabama 25. They moved it to
the Tide 14 where a field goal at-
tempt by Charles Connell failed.

SOUTH BEND-Angelo Dabiero,
a wraithlike,' 165 - pound senior,
put electrifying punch in a Notre
Dame attack today and .the Irish
finally wore down Oklahoma's
stubborn Soonets, 19-6, in a foot-
ball season opener for both teams.
Although 200 - pound fullback
Mike Lind scored two Notre Dame
touchdowns, the slippery, speeding
Dabiero started Notre Dame on its
way with a 51-yard touchdown
sprint in the first period and then
almost single handedly set up the
final Irish touchdown in the final
With the underdog Sooners still
very much in the game, Dabiero
popped loose on runs of 22 and 30
yards as Notre Dame surged 62
yards in four plays for the final

Footballs will be flying in Philly
this afternoon when the St. Louis
Cardinals invade the City of
Brotherly Love to take on unde-
feated, defending champion Phila-
delphia Eagles in the top game of
the day in the NFL.
The Cards will feature their
newly acquired passing ace, Sam
(The Rifle) Etcheverry, formerly
a star slinger in the Canadian
Football League, and the object of
the greatest international robbery
since Paris 'snatched Helen from
her beloved Greece-and that one
caused a ten-year war.
The Eagles will also have to
cope with an improved Cardinal
running attack. That's right-im-
proved-if you can improve your
running by losing John Davidl
Crow and Joe Childress. The rea-
son for the improvement is, of
course, Etcheverry. He has a way
of loosening opposition defenses.
The Eagles are the same team
that won last year's championship
except for quarterback, where
Sonny Jurgensen has taken over
for Norm Van Brocklin, and who's
to say there's been a dropoff?
In another eye-opener, the Dal-
las Cowboys travel to Cleveland
to do battle with Paul Brown's
Browns in a game that should
answer, once and for all, the nag-
gingly impossible question: Is
Dallas for real?
The Cowboys seem to think they
are, and if Don Meredith and Ed-
die LeBaron can hit their receivers
as they have been hitting them;
and if the Cowboy defense can
lasso Jimmy Brown and Bobby
Mitchell, or, at least, keep them
from stampeding, the result might
be surprising.
After last week's game in Balti-
more, Lion Coach George Wilson
announced, "We had God on our
side." He was talking about the

Lion's questionable victory over
the Colts, but, despite Wilson's
revelation, there is some doubt
about'the role God plays on the
Lions. After all, He isn't named
Pietrosante, Schmidt, Barr, Cog-
dill, Lane, Lary, Karras and other'
things. Or is He?
This week, the Lions, with what
many believe to be the best defense,

in football, try to stop San Fran-
cisco's Forty-Niners and their
vaunted "shotgun offense." There
have been some changes in the
firing mechanism of the shotgun.
Abe Woodson, one of those people
who runs kickoffs back 103 yards,
will be given a shot at an offensive
backfield position - the shotgun
gets more explosive every week.
The Chicago Bears hope to move
up in the Western Division stand-
ings today, and if they do, their
ascent will have to come at the
expense of the Green Bay Packers.
The Bears have Billy Wade to
louden their growl, and, they hope,
to strengthen their bite. Last week,
Wade hit on six of seven passes to
rally the Bears to a victory over
the Rams-the star for the Rams
in that game being Zeke Bratow-
ski, of course. Wade and Brat-
kowski were swapped before the
season began.+
In othergames, the Baltimore
'Colts, with John Unitas fully re-
covered from the attack of dy-
sentry that made him look like
a masquerader in the Lion game,
travel to Minneapolis to test the
Vikings' pass defense like it has
never been tested before.
The Los Angeles Rams host the
Pittsburgh Steelers in the battle of
the winless. The Rams will be
happy to know that UCLA couldn't
really beat them despite rumors
current on the West Coast.
The only other game of the day
will see the New York Giants at
Washington to christen the new
District of Columbia stadium for
the Redskins.

Texans Face Houston;
Patriots Oppose Titans




With San Diego's impressive 19-
11 victory over the Buffalo Bills
last night the pressure is on in the
Western Division of the American
Football League.-
The Dallas Texans take on last
year's Eastern Division champs
and always tough Houston Oilers.
This victory is important to the
Lone Star Staters who having al-
ready lost one game are falling
back in the face of the San Diego
The important game in the East
pits the Boston Pats and the New
York Titans. With the two top
passers in the AFL, the teams will
be at odds. New York already
possesses a 21-20 victory over the

Beantowners, but with those two
teams that means nothing in pre-
dicting the odds of today's contest.
Barring a tie, the game will break
the first-place deadlock that exists
between the two teams and could
drop the loser into third place.
The final AFL contest will see
the Denver Broncos invade Oak-
land to do battle with the Raiders.
Both teams will be tasting victory,
for neither relishes the loss which
will spell loss of hopes for conten-
tion in their division.
Denver is in third place in the
Western Division with a record of
1-2. Oakland stands at the bottom
of the Eastern Division with a
winless 0-3 record.
