PSU HAS ALREADY PLAYED TWICE

Nittany Lion 'vets'to test OSU

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Ohio State Coach Woody Hayes admits
he is biased in arguing that Penn State will have a big
advantage, when the two teams meet in Columbus
Saturday in one of the season's top intersectional
collegiate football games.
"I'd say it's a tremendous advantage but, of course, I'm
biased," Hayes told the Chicago Football Writers
yesterday in a telephone hookup. Hayes was referring to
the fact that his sixth-ranked Buckeyes have yet to play
a game while Penn State already has played two games
and won them both.
DUFFY DAUGHERTY, the great authority used to
say you improve most between your first and second
games and we haven't even played yet," said Hayes.
Hayes has a record of 23-3-1 for season openers but
admits "I've had better players than the teams we've
played but Penn State is rated high and could be the best
team we've ever opened against."
The last time the two teams met was in 1976 and Hayes
came off with a 12-7 victory over Penn State. Coach Joe
Paterno concedes the Nittany Lions will have some
advantage in having played two games but not as big as
Hayes believes. In fact, Paterno, also in a telephone
interview, sees some drawbacks in the early start.
"I think it's somewhat of an advantage, how much I
don't know," said Paterno, whose team had to go down
to the final seconds to defeat Temple 10-7 and came back
with a 26-10 victory over Rutgers.

"I would have preferred one game instead of two,"
said Paterno who contends Penn State did not move up
the two games deliberately.
"THE TEMPLE game was scheduled for November
18 when we'd be in our final exams," said Paterno. "We
tried to play it the 14th of October but Temple was
scheduled against Cincinnati."
Although Ohio State recruited highly heralded
quarterback Art Schlichter, Rod Gerald will start for the
Buckeyes because, "Gerald is a senior and our
quarterback and Schlichter is a freshman and has
limitations," said Hayes.
"GERALD WORRIES us as much as anybody," said
Paterno. "And their tailback Ron Springs is
outstanding. They'll play typical Ohio State football, no
fancy stuff. Stopping their running game is our No. 1
concern."
Hayes expressed concern over Ohio State's ability to
stop quarterback Chuck Fusina.
"He's a fine quarterback," said Hayes. "Anytime you
pass over 60 per cent it's phenomenal. They have a good
defensive line, a strong kicking game and are well
coached.
"If you can't get heated up for the No. 3 (actually No.
5) team," said Hayes, "I don't know when you can get
heated up."
