Oklahoma, =combining a 66-7 drubbing of Rice with Alabama's upset loss to
uthern California, took over the nation's number one ranking from the Crimson
de yesterday in both the AP and UPI ratings.
Michigan, which scored a solidvictory over Notre Dame, was pushed to num-
r three in the UPI poll and number four in the AP poll. The Wolverine win also
ocked the Irish out of both polls.
The top five teams were closely bunched this week. Oklahoma's victory again-
an overmatched Rice team made the Sooners' strength difficult- to judge and
y were less than an overwhelming choice.
Southern Cal, 2-0, made the most significant jump, climbing from seventh in
St week's poll to second and third in the polls with a surprisingly one-sided 24-14
umph of Alabama, which fell to number seven.
Penn State, which came from nine points behind in the third period to edge
uthern Methodist 26-21, slipped to fifth place, while Arkansas, 19-7 victor over
lahoma State, moved to second and fourth in the polls.

Well, it's been another ho-hum week in sports. Michigan won, the Lions
and Notre Dame lost, the Tigers survived and the Yankees and Boston con-
tinued their race (walk?) for the Eastern Division pennant. Which must
mean it is Tuesday and time for another PREVIEW-THE WEEK IN
Thanks in main part to the Cleveland Indians, the American League
East still has a pennant race entering the final week. Both first-place New
York and second-place Boston finish their seasons at hone this week, the
Yankees hosting Toronto and Cleveland, while the Red Sox entertain Detroit
and Toronto.
Both teams have only six games left, and if there should be a tie at the
end of the regular season, Boston and New York would settle the issue in a
one-game playoff in Boston.
Kansas City and Philadelphia have almost clinched their shares of half-
pennants and Los Angeles won the National League West Sunday. The
Division Playdffs will begin a week from today and the Daily will have looks
into both the American and National title tilts beginning tomorrow.
The third week of Big Ten football finds the conference engaging in its
first full slate of non-conference opponents. Duke invades Ann Arbor this
weekend while Purdue follows Michigan into South Bend attempting to drop
Notre Dame to 0-3. Illinois takes on Syracuse, Indiana hosts Nebraska, Iowa
travels to Arizona (Michigan's opponent next week), Michigan State travels
to Los Angeles for Daryl Rogers' homecoming-too bad the Spartans are
playing USC, not San Jose State-, Minnesota is at UCLA, Ohio State enter-
tains Baylor, and Wisconsin hosts Oregon.
Other interesting games:
Alabama at Vanderbilt
Army at Washington State
Central Michigan at Ball State
Fresno State at Cal-Poly Obispo
Oh, Yes ... DAILY LIBELS at Wayne Duke State,
Since there's no interest here we'll move on to:
The field hockey team is busy this week with two games at home against
Central Michigan and toledo on September 26 and 29 and a road contest at
Kalamazoo College on the 30th. The Volleyball team travels to Western
Michigan today and participates in the Spartan Invitational Friday and
Saturday in East Lansing. Finally, the golfers tee off at East Lansing in
another Invitational Friday and Saturday.
Yep, that's right, both the National Hockey League and the National
Basketball:League have begun their respective preseason schedules. Thus,
for the next four weeks, you can look forward to batters, receivers,
pucksters, dribblers ... ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
