"Eventually," says UCLA Coach
Pepper Rodgers, "we'll beat a lot
of people."
By eventually, Rodgers apparent-
ly means he doesn't expect h i s
young, inexperienced Bruins, ex-
perimenting with the wishbone forI
the first time, to manhandle top-
rated Nebraska as the Corn-husk-
ers open their drive for a t h i r d
straight national title.
The Nebraska-UCLA game is one
of several key contests that high-
light today's rather heavy sched-
ule that gets the college football
campaign underway with a flourish.
The Colorado Buffaloes, 10-2 last
season and ranked No. 2 behind
Nebraska in The Associated Press
pre-season poll, plays California,
6-5 last season, on home grounds
at Boulder to head up the bill.
Other top games include the re-
newal of an ancient rivalry be-
tween No. 15 Tennessee and Geor-
gia Tech at Atlanta, and Florida
State's visit to Pittsburgh where
the Panthers also have installed the
Wishbone and returned 30 letter-
men from last year. The Seminoles
were ranked 19th in the top 20
Sharing the night spotlight with
Nebraska-UCLA are games involv-
ing No. 8 Southern California and
No. 4 Arkansas at Little Rock and

Also of considerable interest:
Houston, which lost 15 starters
from its 9-3 team from last year,
embarks on a less demanding sch-
edule at Rice; and Toledo, com-
ing off an unbeaten 12-0 1971 sea-
son, puts its 35-game winning streak
on the line at Tampa where the
Spartans have not only a potent
offense but a solid defense.
