Tune in Saturday for beginning
of the holiday bowl avalanche
HOLIDA Y BOWL
San Diego, California
BRIGHAM YOUNG vs. INDIANA
On December 21, the
Holiday Bowl in sunny San
Diego will be the site of
what should prove to be a
passing clash between the -'
Young Cougars, champions
of the Western Athletic
Conference, and the sur-
prising Hoosiers of Indiana.
Brigham Young earned the trip to the bowl by
annihilating San Diego State, 63-14 on November 24th.
The Cougars owe most of their success this season to
unbelievable quarterback Marc Wilson, who was
named to the first team of Kodak's All-American
squad. The 6-5 senior passing whiz has thrown for 300
yards or more in seven games this season.
BYU will most likely stick to its highly successful
passing attack when they bring their 11-0 mark to Sarr
Diego. "We're a passing team," said a spokesman for
the Utah Mormon school, "we believe in it out here."
No one can argue with that.
Indiana, meanwhile, has a very impressive passing
arsenal of its own. Hoosier signal-caller Tim Clifford
finished second in the Big Ten in passing with a total
of 1332 yards in the air.
Indiana will depend on a defensive secondary led
by standouts Tim Wilbur and Dart Ramsey to stop
the Cougars' potent offense.
The Holiday Bowl will mark only the second time
that Indiana has seen post-season, the last being the
1967 Rose Bowl. All of the Hoosiers and their
followers are extremely excited at the opportunity to
play the 10th ranked Cougars. If the Hoosiers win, it
could be the start of a big post-season for the Big Ten.
McNEESE STA TE vs. S YRA CUSE
Two rookie head
coaches guided teams
to perfect seasons this
year. One was Buckeye
mentor, Earle Bruce,
who will spend New4
Year's Day at the Rose
Bowl as his reward.
The other, Ernie Dup-
lechin, will take McNeese State (11-0) to Saturday's
Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana, to face
If one player can be singled out as instrumental in
McNeese State gaining the Southwest Conference
championship and this bowl berth, it's kicker Don
According to Louis Bonnette of the McNeese State
Athletic Department, Stump's foot won six games for
the Cowboys this season. Stump accounted for all of
the Cowboys' points in two victories on his way to
recording 15 successful field goals in 21 attempts.
The remaining McNeese offense relied on the run-
ning of senior Artie Shankle. Through the first eight
games of the season, Shankle averaged more than 100
yards, per game. But on the first play from scrim-
mage against Northwestern Louisiana State, Shankle
broke his jaw. While Shankle will probably return to
action this Saturday, his replacement, Theron Mc-
Clenden, was more than satisfactory in running for
147 and 212 yards in the last two games of the season.
Syracuse boasts a running arsenal which averaged
288 yards per game, primarily by quarterback Bill
Hurley and tailback Joe Morris. Against Navy, one of
the top five teams in stopping the rush this season,
the Orangemen gained 203 yards on the ground.
Syracause also brings a good kicking game to this
game, with John Anderson having made a credible 14
or 17 field goal attempts.
GARDEN STA TE BOWL
E. Rutherfo rd, New jersey
TEMPLE vs. C"ALIFORNIA
Pity those defensive backs.
Two of the nation's best pass-
ing quarterbacks will be
thrown together in East Ruth-
erford, New Jersey, this Sat-
Temple's Brian Broomell,
the nation's leader in pass
completion percentage, and
California's Rich Campbell will lead their respective
aerial attacks in the second annual Garden State
Temple (9-2) enters the game with the better
balanced offense. The Owls were fourth in the nation
in total offense, having averaged 36 points and over
450 yards in offense per game during the regular
Broomell will have his sights on wide receiver
Gerald Lucear. Lucear, a speedmerchant who also
returns punts and kick-offs, has been collecting more
than 120 yards per game and has ten touchdowns this
The ground attack is led by running back Mark
Bright. He averages five and a half yards per carry
for over 100 yards per game as the nation's 12th best
While California (6-5) had a less impressive season,
it also met more challenging opponents in the tough
Since the Golden Bears rely so heavily on the pass,
it has been especially damaging that wide receivers
Floyd Eddings and Holden Smith have spent the lat-
ter part of the season sidelined with injuries. Give the
record-setting Campbell the chance to throw to either
of these two on Saturday and the Temple secondary
will face its toughest opposition of the season.
TAR HEEL defensive back Ricky Barden floats up-
field after picking off an opposition pass. The 5-9
fireplug is rated by many as the finest defender in
Florida will never be the same
