SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)-Sopho-
more Jeff Brockhaus' 33-yard field goal
early in the fourth quarter yesterday
sent Missouri's charged-up Tigers to a
3-0 victory over Notre Dame's defen-
ding national champions.
Flustered by 94-degree heat and a
Missouri defense that repeatedly
refused to yield, the fifth-ranked Irish
blew numerous scoring chances in the
second half which put an end to their 10-
game winning streak and saw them suf-
fer their first loss at home since their
opening game against Pitt in 1976.
It was the first time Notre Dame had
been shut out at home since a 21-0 loss
to Michigan State in 1960.

after the Irish failed on a field goal at-
tempt when holder Joe Restic fumbled
the snap from center after Notre Dame
had reached the Missouri 14-yard line.
Earl Gant ripped off a 21-yard gain
and then took a 16-yard pass from Phil
Bradley to move into Notre Dame
territory. Bradley connected on a 15-
yard pass to David Newman down to
the Irish 25 and four plays later
Brockhaus booted his game-winning
field goal.
Notre Dame's final scoring chance
was lost in the heat with 3:21 remaining
when Vagas Ferguson fumbled on the
Missouri 24-yard line and Eric Berg

recovered for the Tigers.
THE IRISH HAD their chances,
Early in the second half, they moved to
the Missouri 11-yard line where quar-
terback Joe Montana failed to gain on a
fourth and one.
. Moments later Gerry Ellis fumbled
and Jeff Weston recovered on the
Missouri 7-yard line.
Notre Dame got down to the 1-yard
line where Montana failed to get it
across and on fourth down the Tigers'
Chris Garlich and Kurt Peterson threw
Ferguson for a loss.
ONCE AGAIN the Irish got good field
position on a punt and Montana hit Kris
Haines with a 35-yard pass to the

Missouri 3-yard line. A penalty put it
back on the 18 where the fumbled snap
on the field goal attempt occurred.
Turnovers by Montana repeatedly
stifled Notre Dame's chances of getting
on the board in the first half. Missouri
had the game's first scoring chance.
The Tigers moved to the Irish 36-yard
line where Brockhaus attempted a 53-
yard field goal which fell short.
Notre Dame roared back and, with
Montana passing to Pete Bolohan for 18
yards and Ferguson for 15, the Irish had
a first down on the Missouri 18. Mon-
tana fumbled the next snap and Garlich

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP)-Illinois and Northwestern fought to a 0-0 tie
yesterday in the opening game of the Big Ten football season.
Illinois got inside the Northwestern 20-yard line on five occasions, but
failed to score. Northwestern got to the Illinois 20 only once and couldn't
capitalize on it.
The game was played in 116-degree heat and had originally been
scheduled as the final game of the season, but was moved up to improve at-
Illinois missed two field goals and fumbled twice deep in Wildcat
Northwestern's only scoring attempt was a missed field goal in the third
It appeared that Illinois was mounting a scoring drive late in the fourth
quarter. But after moving from the Northwestern 32-yard line to the 25,
quarterback Rich Weiss passed to receiver Eric Rouse at the Wildcat 14.
Rouse snared off the pass, fumbled it and the Wildcats' Pat Geagan
Northwestern took over on the 14 with less than a minute to play and
was unable to score.
It was the first time since 1951 that Illinois had played to a scoreless tie,
and the first time since 1956 for the Wildcats.
Illinois mounted a 68-yard drive early in the second half, but gave up the
ball on the Northwestern 2-yard line when Vincent Carter couldn't hang onto
a pitchout from Weiss..
In the fourth quarter, Illinois' Dave Finzer missed on a 35-yard field goal
attempt. Northwestern's only scoring try came on the first possession in the
third quarter, when Nick Mirkopulos missed a 47-yard field goal attempt.
A crowd of 40,000 watched the scoreless game.
Sooners butter-finger Stanford
STANFORD, Calif. (AP)-Quarterback Thomas Lott produced four
touchdowns, one on a 70-yard pass play, for the Oklahoma Sooners, who sur-
vived eight fumbles and needed a last-second, end zone interception to beat
Stanford 35-29 yesterday in a college football season opener.
The fourth-ranked Sooners, the Big Eight champions, lost four of their
fumbles, including two in the third period when Stanford of the Pacific-10
capitalized on recovering to score 10 points, cutting Oklahoma's lead to 28-
Stanford quarterback Steve Dils, who completed 32 passes for 299 yards
and three touchdowns, suffered his second interception of the game when
safety Sherwood Taylor picked off a pass at midfield early in the final quar-
ter. The Sooners then drove 45 yards for their final touchdown, a 1-yard
sneak by Lott.
The Sooners gave Stanford two points with an intentional safety in the
final minutes. Taylor then made another interception at Oklahoma's 3-yard
line and Dils passed 11 yards to Ken Margerum for a touchdown with eight
seconds remaining.
The Cardinals then recovered their on-side kick at Oklahoma's 31 and the
game ended when cornerback Darrol Ray made his third key defensive play
of the game by intercepting a Dils pass in the end zone.
Trojans triumph
LOS ANGELES (AP)-Paul McDonald, poised in his first start at
quarterback for Southern California, completed 12 of 18 passes for 194 yards
and Charles White rushed for 156 yards on 30 carries yesterday as the ninth-
ranked Trojans downed stubborn Texas Tech 17-9 in the college football
opener for both teams.
A junior who was used sparingly last year,,the left-handed McDonald
brought Southern Cal back from a 9-0 deficit at the half to two third-period
Fullback Lynn Gain scored first for the Trojans, punching over from the
1-yard line five minutes into the second half. Reserve quarterback Rob
Preston played a key role in that score, taking over for two plays when Mc-
Donald was shaken up.
On his first place at the, helm, Preston threw a 22-yard pass to Kevin
Williams that put the ball at the Tech 1-yard line, with Gain scoring on the
next play.
Southern Cal, plagued by fumbles throughout the contest, took the lead
for keeps in the closing seconds of the quarter when White dove over from
the one to cap an 89-yard scoring drive engineered by McDonald.

for a loose ball fumbled by Notre Dame quarterback Joe Montana during a
first half drive in Missouri territory in South Bend yesterday. Missouri recovered,
stopping the Irish in the scoreless first half. A second half field goal by Missouri

SEATTLE (AP) - Brian Baggott
pounced on a punt blocked by
teammate Ken Easley in the end zone
for a touchdown and Peter
Boermeester booted a 37-yard field goal
to lead 12th-ranked UCLA to a 10-7
victory yesterday over 11th-rated
Washington in a nationally televised
season opener played in a rain storm.
EASLEY, a sophomore free safety,
blocked Aaron Wilson's punt from the
end zone midway in the second period
and Baggott was the first of a host of
Bruins to land on the ball and give
UCLA a 10-0 lead. Defensive tackle
Billy Don Jackson dropped Husky
quarterback Tom Porras for an eight-
yard loss at the Washington 8, setting
up fourth down and forcing Wilson to
kick from the end zone.
Washington, the defending
conference and Rose Bowl champion,
closed to within 10-7 at halftime on
Porras' six-yard scoring pass to tight
end Scott Greenwood that capped a
four-play drive. The drive began at the
UCLA 31 where linebacker Bruce
Harrell recovered UCLA running back
James Owens' second fumble of the
