In the beginning, it was to
have been a classic battle.
The fabled Archie Manning of
Mississippi would guide his
team against the always vicious
Louisiana State defense. Both
teams would be undefeated, and
Tiger Stadium would be filled
with 67,000 rabid LSU fans.
Millions more would watch the
struggle on television, a splend-
id end to a sparkling season of
college football.
Something went wrong along
the way, however. First, Texas
A&M, a team that has not won
since, completed a last minute

the Tigers. Then, Southern
Mississippi, hardly a major pow-
er, completely obliterated Ar-
chie and his Rebels in a 30-14
Things took another turn for
the worse when, after battling
the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame
to a standstill for over three
quarters, LSU succumbed to a
last period field goal for I t s
second defeat. On Thanksgiving
.day, Mississippi State assured
today's anti-climax by knocking
of f its cross state rivals, 19-14.

To be completely fair to Mis-
sippi, the team has played sev-
eral games without the magni-
ficent Manning. Most likely,
they will face the Tigers today
without his services, and he will
be sorely missed, LSU has pos-
sibly the finest rushing defense
in the nation, but its secondary
has been leaky, allowing almost
200 yards per game. Without
their star passer, the Rebels
might not be able to exploit this
Tiger weakness to the fullest
Whoever tnrows tor Mississippi
will have a talented wide re-
ceiver in Floyd Franks, who has
snared 40 passes this season for
over 600 yards. Randy Reed is
te top ballcrrier, veging
ry, but will probably find rough
going against the Tiger line.
Louisiana State rarely throws,
but when it does, it meets with
considerable success. Buddy Lee
and Bert Jones handle the pass-
ing, usually throwing to Andy
Hamilton. One of the main of-

yards. An excellent rurnner with

in the nation in total offense,

quarterbacks as Dennis Dummit

held by the Sun Devils it is in

M'R taners divide to conquer

Arizona counters with a strong
ground game, especially to the
inside. Fullback Willie Lewis is
a fine ballearrier, and super-
.soph halfback Joe Petroshus has
recovered from an ankle injury.
The Wildcats balance their
running with adequate passing
from Brian Lindstrom, a poised
veteran who can scramble if
necessary. -
If the Wildcats have any-
thing in their favor, it is an
ability to get up for a big
game. Earlier in the season they

Cueltar andi Clemente clash
BERN, Switzerland -MarcA Hoderpresident of the International
Ski Federation (FIS) has challenged Olympic boss Avery Brundage
to a showdown on Alpine skiing to avoid the collapse of the 1972
Winter Games In Sapporo, Japan.
He gave a strong hint that the FIS will pull the sport out of the
Olympic program If the problem is not resolved.
In a letter to Brundage, Hodler demanded "a firm and final
agenda" for the FIS meeting with the International Olympic Commit-
tee special committee on Alpine skiing In January to sort out once
and for all the controversy surrounding the sport.
He rejected Brundage's demand that 10 Alpine ski stars should
be barred from Sapporo because they were paid to instruct at a
summer ski camp in Mammouth Mountain, Calif. this- year.
Hodler claimed this was allowed under a special rule for ski in-
structors accepted by the IOC in 1958.

ants to an athletic board committee which will recommend a new

The group will work with the committee headed by Rollin G.
Wright, a university professor. Wright's committee will recommend
a successor to Jim Valek, who was fired last month, to the board
of trustees committee on athletic activities.

upset against Michigan's deplet-

Although Purdue lost only one
letterman, a butterflyer, it was
from a mediocre 3-7 group that
didn't even send a diver to the Big
Ten meet last year.
KAHMS EXPECTS a slightly
better showing in this year's cam-

more experience, and a mu UC h

Kahms doesn't believe anyone can
touch the Hoosiers this season.
He also doesn't think his Boiler-
makers can touch Michigan's

MICHIGAN WILL send most of
its crop of talented but untried
freshmen to lafayette to clash
with Purdue. Assistant Coach Dick
Kimball plans to take only what
he needs to cover both meets.
The Michigan Relays will be the

tests, and as a result the Wolver-

Michigan State, Oakland, Eastern

wants -to make a good showing
against the Spartan assembly and
believes Michigan can, even with
only half of a team.
DICK RYDZE will head a group
of divers at Oakland that should
be among the best in the nation.
Wolverine Joe Crawford will move

Dave Clarke, breaststroker, are
two Pan-American champs, and
