DETROIT - Detroit rallied for
five runs off Dave McNally in the
fifth inning last night, three on a
homer by Frank Howard and one
on a balk by reliever Doyle Alex-

deficit and give the Tigers a 6-5
victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
The triumph kept the Tigers one
game behind Boston but moved
them from fourth to second in

rank as the premiere football con-

Defending national champion

gaining a 20-10 decision over the
Golden Bears.

ranked second, Oklahoma, which

their 1971 showing when Nebras-

bowl appearances.
