PENN S TA TE, ALABAMA CLASH IN S UGAR BOWL

Big bowl games slated this year

SUGAR BOWL
JANUARY 1
at
New Orleans, Louisiana
PENN STA TE vs. ALABAMA
They'll be "going for it all"
down in New Orleans where
top-ranked Penn State (11-0)
puts its unblemished record on
the line against No. 2 Alabama
(10-1) in the annual Sugar
Bowl classic to be played at 2
p.m. EST on New Year's Day.
While Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler believes USC and Oklahoma are the
two toughest teams in the country, it will be the
undefeated Eastern independent and the
Southeastern Conference champion facing off in a
battle for the mythical national championship,
picked by the AP and UPI in January.
Penn State's Joe Paterno and his roaring bunch
boast awesome offensive linemen whose average
weight is 2521/ pounds, while the talented trio of
quarterback Fusina, fullback Matt Suhey and
tailback Booker Moore, a Michigan native, toil in
the Lion backfield.
Fusina, who has led State to 22 wins in their last 23
games, has passed for 1859 yards and 11 touchdowns
this season, good for a 56.6% competion rate.
Suhey, a junior, has rushed for 726 yards and 7
touchdowns. Moore, a second year man from Flint
Southwestern High School, the same school that
sent Leach, tight end Gene Johnson and wingback
Rodney Feasterto Michigan, has carried the ball
for 602 yards and six touchdowns as a part time
starter.
Bolstering the offense, placekicker Matt Bahr
connected on 22 field goals this year, setting a
NCAA record.
At the Alabama end of the field, senior
quarterback Jeff Rutledge heads an all
Birmingham, Alabama backfield that includes
veteran halfback Tony Nathan (7 yards per carry),

junior fullback Steve Whitman and sophomore
Major Ogilvie at the other halfback spot.
Rutledge tied and broke two Joe Namath records
this year, and also threw 100 consecutive passes,
without an interception, also a school record. His 13
touchdown passes this season tied Namath (1926)
and Harry Gilmer (1945), while his 30 career
touchdown throws broke Namath's record of 28.
Defensively, Penn State is No. 1 in the country
against the rush. Linebacker Lance Mehl, (96
tackles) and Tackles Matt Millen (54) and Bruce
Clark (51), both of whom are finalists in the
Lombardi trophy (Best Lineman) balloting, lead
the Nittany Lions. Junior safety Pete Harris,
younger brother of Franco of the Pittsburgh
Steelers, is tops in the country at his position with 10
interceptions this season.
For the Crimson Tide, whose only loss was to
USC, 24-14, All-American tackle Marty Lyons (119
tackles) and linebacker Barry Krauss (112) show
the way. ,
Who's going to win the game? Jimmy the Greek
picks Alabama by 2 in his early line, but Tide coach
Bear Bryant is playing it cool.
"I'll let you guys (writers) decide," quipped
Bryant. "But I think if we beat Penn State, we
should have a good chance at the national
championship." -DAN PERRIN
COTTON BOWL
JANUARY 1
at
Dallas, Texas
NOTRE DAME vs. HOUSTON

Bowl meant a national championship for Notre
Dame, this year's cotton won't be of that same
variety.
On this January 1, the tenth ranked Fighting Irish
(8-3-0) will be confronted by the Southwest
Conference champions, Houston, ranked ninth (9-2 %
0) at 2 p.m. on CBS.-
Coach Bill Yoeman of Houston will put his best on
the line, as he surprisingly returns to the Cotton
Bowl for the second time in three years. (His latest
trip was a win against Maryland on January 1,
1977). "I didn't think we'd make it this far," said
Yoeman.
The Cougars are led on offense by quarterback
Danny Davis, one of Houston's three captains.
Davis passed for 1053 yards this season, for a
completion percentage of 49 per cent. He also threw
for nine touchdowns.
Backing up Davis in the Cougar backfield are
seniors Emmet King and Randy Love. King carried
the ball for an average of 6.0 yards per carry. His
total rushing yardage this season was 1095 yards as
he scored 5 touchdowns.
Love, the Cougar's fullback, averaged 5.0 yards
per carry, and 92.6 yards average per game. His net
yardage was 1019 yards, scoring 9 touchdowns.
On defense, Houston is better than statistics
would indicate. "I didn't think we would be very
good. But our defense came along, and we've
played exceptionally well," said Yoeman.
Leading the Houston defense is linebacker Dave
Hodge. Hodge is one of two captains on defense. The
other is-Jim Wells, but he's been sidelined for the
whole season due to a foot injury.
In contrast, Notre Dame features both a well
seasoned defense and offense. Pacing the Irish
defense are two top quality linebackers, All-
American Bob Golic and Steve Heimkreiter. The
duo accounted for 152 and 160 tackles respectively.
On offense, the Irish sport an experienced attack.
Commanding the Gold and Blue fighters is
quarterback Joe Montana. The poised senior passed
for 141 completions out of 260 attempts this year. His
total yardage was 2010 yards, for 10 touchdowns.
Behind Montana are two tough running backs.
