Alabama earns shot at Penn St.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP)-Jeff Rutledge broke
Joe Namath's school record for career touchdown
passes, throwing two to Bruce Bolton and one to Rick
Neal, as second-ranked Alabama defeated Auburn 34-
16 yesterday, to set up a Jan. 1 Sugar Bowl showdown
with top-rated Penn State for college football's
national championship.
Rutledge also tied the Alabama single-game touch-
down pass mark as well as the one-season record of 13
shared by Namath and Harry Gilmer in leading the
Crimson Tide to its seventh Southeastern Conference
title in eight years.
The 6-foot-2 senior, playing before a record Legion
Field crowd of 79,218 in his home town, connected
with Bolton on scoring pases of 33 yards in the
opening period and 17 yards with 32 seconds left in the
first half. That toss erased a 13-10 Auburn lead and
put Alabama on top for good 17-13.
RUTLEDGE ADDED the 30th of his four-year
career-Namath threw 28 in three seasons-with an
11-yarder to Neal early in the third quarter.
Back-up quarterback Steadman Shealy scored
Alabama's final touchdown on a 20-yard, fourth-down
run in the final period while Alan McElroy booted

field goals of 34 and 39 yards.
Alabama wound up the regular season with a 10-1
record and an eight-game winning streak. The Tide's
6-0 SEC record earned them a trip to the Sugar Bowl
as the host team against Penn State.,
GEORGIA, WHICH was held to a 22-22 tie by
Auburn two weeks ago, finished second in the con-
ference at 5-0-1 and will meet Stanford in the
Bluebonnet Bowl. Auburn concluded with a 6-4-1
overall mark.
Auburn, a 16-point underdog, gave Alabama all it
could handle in the first half. Joe Cribbs, who rushed
for 118 yards on 32 carries, scored the Tigers' touch-
downs on runs of 5 yards in the first period and 9 yar-
ds in the second quarter. Jorge Portela kicked a 37-
yard field goal in the third period for Auburn's final
The gambling Tigers, who used such gimmicks as a
fake field goal and a fake punt, surrendered the lead
when William Andrew fumbled at his own 20 and
Alabama's Murray Legg recovered with one minute
remaining in the first half. After two plays netted
only 3 yards, Bolton got behind defenseive back Clif-
ford Toney and Rutledge found him with his second

scoring pass of the game.
THAT BROKE NAMATH'S career record.
Rutledge tied the mark midway through the opening
period with a 33-yarder to Bolton, who got behind
defensive back James McKinney.
Auburn tied the score 7-7 with an 81-yard, 15-play
drive that lasted six minutes. The key play as a 10-
yard shovel pass on the fake field goal from holder
Foster Christy to Andrews for a first down at the 15.
McElroy's first field goal early in the second quar-
ter put the Crimson Tide in front 10-7 but Auburn took
its only lead with 2:46 left in the half when Cribbs' 9-
yard run capped a 46-yard strike after Freddie Smith
recovered a fumble by Alabama's Steve Whitman.
RUTLEDGE, WHO completed 13 of 21 passes
for 174 yards, teamed up with Neal on an 11-yard
aerial to make the score 24-13 at 4:56.
Portela's field goal narrowed the lead to eight poin-
ts but Alabama salted the game away in the final
quarter on McElroy's second field goal and a 67-yard
march which belonged to Shealy. The junior quarter-
back carried four times for 60 yards and scored on a
fourth-and-two keeper around left end after Alabama
called its field goal unit off the field.
