Southern Powers Win Easily;
To arhee Trip Terps

Ohio State, Iowa Win Big Ten Opener

By The Associated Press
Three traditional powerhouses
of southern football-Mississippi,
Alabama and Louisiana State--
ripped through the opposition with
little difficulty yesterday while
previously unbeaten Maryland suf-
fered the only upset handed to one
of the nation's top ten teams.
Ole Miss, top-ranked in the
latest Associated Press poll, clob-
bered hopeful Houston 47-7;
third-ranked Alabama took North
Carolina State 26-7; and come-
back-bound LSU murdered South
Carolina 42-0.
Maryland, which climbed to the
No. ten spot only this week, was
the victim of its own fumbles and
North Carolina, 14-8.
Underdog Houston ripped to the
first touchdown given up by Mis-
sissippi this season but the na-
tion's No. 1 team trampled. the
fired-up Cougars in a merciless
second half. yesterday.
An awesome combination of
brute power and fancy passing
crumbled the Houston defense.
The Rebels picked up two touch-
downs running and five by air.
End Woody Dabbs led the Ole
Miss scoring with two, taking a
21-yard pass from quarterback
Doug Elmore fo rthe first, and
snagging a 25-yard pass from
quarterback Glynn Griffing for
the second.
The Rebels broke Houston apart
in the third quarter with Elmore,
fullback Billy Ray Adams, 250-
lb tackle Jim Dunaway and guard
Bookie Bolin, a 222 pounder, do-
ing the hard-nose work.
Alabama fell behind on the
scoreboard for the first time this
season, then rallied on the bulls-
eye passing of Pat Trammell and
walloped North Carolina State.
Trammell, a senior quarterback,
passed 12 yards to Richard Wil-
liamson for Alabama's first touch-
dwn and two yards to Bill Battle
for the second, wiping out a
North Carolina lead that first
stood at 7-0 and then at 7-6.
Trammell got Bama's third
touchdown on a five-yard run in
the fourth quarter, giving the
heavily favored Crimson Tide its
first semblance of safe lead.'
South Carolina could not cope
