National leaders crush
feeble weekend rivals'
By RON PARSON
It seemed that this was the week for top teams
to show their power, as there were some very
decisive victories along with a surprising upset.
Top ranked powerhouses completely demolished
their opponents, proving their superiority.
Oklahoma showed they deserve their number
two ranking as sophomore halfback Mike Thomas
raced 90 yards for a touchdown the first time he
carried the ball, leading the Sooners to a 68-3
victory over Oregon.
All-American halfback Greg Pruitt made up
for an early fumble by scoring a two-yard touch-
down and gaining 103 yards.
With the new freshmen eligibility rule Joe
Washington, an Oklahoma freshmanscored twibe
on two devastating runs.
Oregon's coach Dick Ehright had this to say
after the game, "If Oklahoma is not number one
they will do until something else comes along."
In the south, Tulane, Michigan's next opponent,
pulled a surprising upset over Georgia. Two 80
yard scoring drives plus a 57 yard punt return
for a touchdown by safety George Ewing gave
Tulane a decisive 24-13 victory.
Meanwhile, the powerful Georgia running attack
was unable to move consistently against the rug-
ged Tulane defense.
Air Force quarterback Rick Haynie took to the
air with two touchdown passes and Mike Mark ran
for two more touchdowns, as the Air Force bombed
Pittsburgh, 41-13. Air Force capitalized on two of
four Pittsburgh fumbles and completely overpow-
ered the Pitt offense.
Injuries and all, Tennessee went to Wake Forest
and pulled a convincing 45-6 victory. Tennessee,
with three of four running backs injured, was bad
ly handicapped entering their game with Wake
Conwood Halloway passed for one touchdown
and then made way for substitute Gary Valbuena
who hit on three scoring tosses.
Defending national champion Nebraska com-
pletely dominated Army, crushing them 77-7 and
scoring the most points ever against the Military,
Johnny Rodgers, who in the past has had some
trouble with the law, seems to be settling down to
business, scoring twice in the first quarter lead-
ing the Cornhuskers to their overwhelming victory.
Sophomore quarterback Dave Humm passed for
one touchdown and ran for another while running
back Dave Goeller scored twice as the Cornhuskers
built a 35-0 lead at the halftime.
It was no contest as Nebraska dominated the
entire game, scoring seven touchdowns within a
span of nine minutes and 13 seconds.
Eleventh-ranked Penn State had to rally in the
second half to finally outscore Navy 21-10. Navy
led early in the game but made costly mistakes
which Penn State capitalized on. The Nittany Lions'
John Skorupan returned an interception 32 yards
for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to end any
hope for a Navy victory.

Too bad Michigan's Wolverines had to miss all the fun.

MICHIGAN LINEBACKER TOM KEE crushes Northwestern runner
Jim Trimble during the Wolverines' 7-0 skunking of the 'Cats a
week ago, as teammate Don Coleman looks on. Kee was named
defensive player-of-the-game for Michigan's 26-9 triumph over
UCLA Saturday night. See Last Respects.
Well, they didn't miss all the fun. They did manage to enjoy j
some of the old ultra-violence, when they went over, to the Los I
Angeles Coliseum and destroyed a bunch of guys who thought
they were pretty tough: the UCLA Bruins.
It was a game that Michigan had to win, and if the
71,000 who yawned through the Wolverines' 7-0 opener against
Northwestern had seen it, they would have been awed by the
exquisite game that Michigan played.
The Wolverines marched relentlessly for touchdowns the
first two times they had the ball, while UCLA's touted wish-
bone offense, which stunned Nebraska and battered Pitts-
burgh, was held to minus six yards in six plays and two punts.
Everybody in Los Angeles thought that the Bruins would
beat Michigan, even most, of the writers who accompanied the
team to the coast. But once everyone settled into the Huntington-
Sheraton Hotel, Michigan Rose Bowl headquarters for its two
bitter defeats, a geluiqe electricity permeated the air and you
could sense that a big game was coming up and that the,
Wolverines were not to be denied.
The coaches were all business, and a strict minute by minute
schedule was arranged for the players. Their Friday night'
practice in the Rose Bowl got the juices flowing. Saturday they.
had to be up at eight, on a bus at nine, for a tour of an arboretum
next to Santa Anita racetrack. They returned for brunch, a short,
nap, dinner at three,.,meetings, then the trip to the Coliseum at
five. . . . ,,
Then the game. Pow, they owned it all the way. Glory-
boy Mark Harmon, featured in father-son stories in every
Los Angeles paper, was yanked after running six inept,
offensive plays. The report was that the son of foemer Michi-
gan great Tom Harmon was conked in the head on the second
play, and was a bit woozy. They said he could still play. But
he never went back in.
Michigan's offensive line of Bill Hart, Tom Coyle, Mike
Hoban, Jim Coode and Paul Seymour sliced through the
Bruin defense almost at will. Big Ed Shuttlesworth ate. up
yards through the middle and Harry Banks and Clint Haselrig
scooted through mammoth holes off-tackle and outside the
Quarterback Dennis Franklin continued to show poise in
directing the Wolverines, scrambling for 75 yards, throwing key
blocks, and hitting on four of six pass attempts. Once each
during the first two touchdown drives he converted third downs
with screaming bullets to Paul Seal and Bo Rather.
The Wolverine defense, superbly coached by Jim Young (and
it's about time he got the credit he deserves), was awesome
once more, stopping the wishbone with authority. Tom Kee had
ten solo tackles was named by the coaches as defensive champion
of the week, and Randy Logan, who also had ten solo stops was -
chosen as the defensive star by the writers in the Coliseum
"We used the best defense a team can use," Schembechler
said yesterday. "We didn't let them have the ball. But UCLA
never gave it to us either. Whatever we got, we earned."
Really, Michigan played the game practically to per-
fection. They never fumbled, were never intercepted, and
were called for three penalties, none of which, in Schembech-
ler's mind, should have been penalties. j
