By The Associated Press
David Hardy and David Appleby of

Texas, falling to 9-2 for the season,
will meet Washington, 8-3, in the Sun
Bowl at El Paso on Dec. 21

with injuries, had to rely almost en-
tirely on its nationally third-ranked
defense, and it was not enough against
aroused A&M.
Hardy kicked first-half field goals of
23 and 22 yards and Curtis Dickey,
returning from a rib injury, flashed 20
yards for a score as A&M took a 13-7
halftime lead.
Hardy's first field goal was set up
when Ted Constanzo punted only 27
yards to the A&M 40.
HIS SECOND three-pointer came af-
ter Appleby had boomed a 49-yard punt
and Texas was penalized 15 yards to its
18-yard line. Leroy King fumbled at the
28, with Carl Grulich recovering and
Hardy booted his field goal with only
1:37 left in the first half.
Johnny "Lam" Jones then fumbled

shocked Rice with three first-half
touchdown runs, including a 64-yarder,
as 10th-ranked Houston blasted the
Owls 63-0 yesterday to gain a share of
the Southwest Conference champion-
ship and earn its third trip to the Cotton
Bowl in four years.
Houston's victory, coupled with
Texas A&M's upset of sixth-ranked
Texas, left the Cougars tied for the SWC
crown with Arkansas, both with 8-1
league records.
HOUSTON, WHICH shared the title
with Texas Tech in 1976 and won it
outright last season, gets the Cotton
Bowl berth against Big Eight runnerup
Nebraska by virtue of its victory over
Arkansas earlier in the season.
The Cougars, 10-1, rolled to a 35-0
halftime lead on Newhouse's runs of
WITH THEIR backs to the wall after
losing four fumbles in the third quarter,
Alabama's defending national cham-
pions began their winning drive with
11:31 left, eight seconds after Auburn
had taken the lead. Shealy reeled off
runs of nine and 15 yards, passed nine

more to Pugh and Steve Whitman
hammered 20 yards as Alabama, aided .
by a personal foul against Auburn,
marched to the Tigers' eight-yard line.
Shealy then ran a keeper play to his
left, cut back inside, evaded two would-
be tacklers and stormed into the end
zone. The Crimson Tide still had to sur-
vive two Auburn threats.
James Brooks' 64-yard kick-off
return put the ball at the Alabama 31,
but Mike Locklear dropped a fourth-
down pass inside the five with 6:43 to
go. Less than two and a half minutes
later, another fourth-down pass went
astray at the Alabama 37, killing
Auburn's last chance.
Alabama wound up the regular
season with an 11-0 record and a 20-
game winning streak, longest in the
nation. Auburn' finished 8-3, but the
Tigers are on probation and ineligible
for a bowl berth.
Pittsburgh 29, Penn St. 14
McMillan ran for two touchdowns and
caught a 50-yard scoring pass while
Mark Schubert booted three field goals
as 11th-ranked Pittsburgh twice came
from behind to beat Penn State 29-14
yesterday and lay claim to the Eastern
major college football championship.
The victory was the ninth straight for
the Fiesta Bowl-bound Panthers, only
the fifth time in the university's 89-year
football history a Pitt team managed
that feat.

Special to the Daily
YPSILANTI - Sheri Hyatt must have thought that it was
deja vu. Two weeks ago her women's gymnastics squad
struggled to beat Indiana by four-tenths of a point. Yester-
day, it was a similar story.
Going into the final event, Michigan led Eastern
Michigan by only .15, a very uncomfortable margin. But by
the end of the floor exercise, the Wolverines had amassed
almost two more points than their opponents, for a total of
125.10 compared to Eastern's 123.45.
IN AN ATTEMPT to prevent a disappointing defeat,
Hyatt sent senior Sara Flom into the competition with a
sprained ankle. But this tactic proved unnecessary, as
Michigan had already clinched the meet. Fortunately, Flom
suffered no further damage to her injured ankle.
For her efforts, Flom earned an 8.15, good for third
place. Teammates Theresa Bertoncin and Diane -McLean
claimed the two top positions in floor exercise with respec-
tive scores of 8.4 and 8.3.
But it wasn't all that easy for the Blue tumblers. The
Hurons made a strong showing in the uneven parallels, out-
scoring the Wolverines by 1.3 points. McLean and sophomore

Lisa Uttal had difficulties as each fell from the bars twice.
"It's kind of depressing when you do it right in practice
and not in the meet," said Uttal. "It wasn't the bars' fault,
the problem was in my head."
TRAILING BY .7 after the initial two events, the
Wolverines regained the lead in the beam competition.
Laurie Miesal and McLean keyed the surge with scores of
7.85 and 7.75 respectively. Though her score proved superior
to the others, Miesal wasn't happy with the result.
"What makes me mad is that I do it twice as well in prac-
tice," said the disgruntled sophomore.
Hyatt conceded that the comeback could have been at-
tributed to the Hurons' low scores rather than Michigan's
high numbers.
"We can definitely score higher than we did on beam,"
said the coach, referring to the team's total of 30.15 for the
The Wolverines take their unblemished record to
Wisconsin next Saturday for a meet with the Badgers. Once
again, there may be room for the tumblers to err in their
routines - the Badgers finished last in the Big Ten meet held
last February.

Sue Hammond's fiddling is accurate
and clean, but it doesn't jump much,
and she needs to boss the old cricketbox
more in order to control the rhythm.
The group doesn't have a bass, and a
strong fiddler-both in sound and
style-can easily make up for the loss.

has an exceptional voice, and the others
were on the mark, but again, they need
to get together and take charge.
THE GROUP boasts a very fine
repertoire filled with tunes seldom

pos and styles appropriately, and never
drag. Only their .stage presence was
weak and this because they are used to
playing in bars and not for attentive
audiences like those found at the Ark.
(They were overheard saying they are
interested in playing Mr. Flood's Party,
which seems quite appropriate).
As the concert came to a close, those
who had been dancing all night in the
back of the room helped the women
clear the floor for a big square dance.

see such a local group again soon in Ann
