bined with the Boilermakers playing some fantastic football goals, erupted in a hurry when
Boobie Clark burst nine yards:
order to save their coach's job, spells u-p-s-e-t. for the go-ahead touchdown.

lousy on film.
"The coaching staff was worried. But there was nothing .
you could put your finger on or we'd have done something," O lr E E I t
said Schembechler.

It came one play after Los
Angeles quarterback James
Harris was sacked and fum-
bled the ball away.
Before the periodwas over,
Anderson tossed touchdown
passes of 30 yards to tight end
Bob Trumpy and 17 to Clark,
who was celebrating his 26th
birthday. It gave the Bengals
their biggest scoring period of
the season.
Anderson, who suffered
through his worst first half of
the season when his receivers
caught only two of his 12 pass-
es for a mere five yards, came
back in the decisive third peri-
od to burn up the Rams' de-
icers on
'in poiis

fense for 105 yards, hitting six
of nine passes.
He also ran 25 yards on a
third-and-four situation, one
play before his'30-yard scor-
ing pass to Trumpy that gave
the Bengals a 13-6 lead.
Cincinnati failed to get a
first down - it didn't get one
until 12 minutes had elap-
sed .- but appeared to have
a'field goal when rookie Chris
Bahr connected from 44 yards
out.
But an illegal motion penalty
against guard Glenn Bujnoch
wiped it out and pushed the
Bengals back five yards. From
the 49, Bahr was wide to the
left.I
A poor punt by rookie PatI
McInally later gave the Rams
the ball at midfield. A pass in-
terference penalty and a 17-
yard Cappelletti run preceded
Tom Dempsey's 19-yard field
goal.
fThe Los Angeles lead might
have stretched a 9-0 later in
the period when the Rams
moved to the Cincinnati 30-but!
Bacon sacked Harris back at
the 43, out of Dempsey's raige.
Then came the third period-
and back came the Bengals.
Harris, trying to run on a

busted play, was belted by
rookie defensive end GaryI
Burley. The ball popped loose
and player after player tried
to grab it. Cornerback Ken
Riley finally did, at the Rams'
nine-yard line.
Dempsey came back with a
23-yard field goal in the second
period.
It took only one play for the;
Bengals to score. Clark, behind
perfect blocking, cut to his

right and sped untouched into
the end zone, tying it for a mo-
ment. Bahr's extra point gave
the Bengals a 7-6 lead.
Los Angeles still couldn't get
untracked. They p'mted to the
Bengals' 47 - and the Bengals
salted the game away. Ander-
son threw a 14-yard pass to
Billy Brooks, a 13-yarder to
Bruce Coslet and then the 17-
yarder to the wide-open Clark
for the final touchdown.

"On any given Saturday, if the circumstances are right,
you're gonna get beat," Bo said. "But when you win a lot
you forget how you got there. It comes so natural you for-
get the price you had to pay to get there. And it happensj
to coaches too. You guys (writers) almost had me convinced
we were good.'
"That's the. first time since 1969, when we lost to Michi-
gan State, that we lost to a team we should have beaten."
While Schembechler has managed to stay upset-free for
the past seven years, Purdue has enhanced its reputation
as the "Spoilermakers." Just two years ago Alex Agase's
squad knocked Notre Dame from its number-one perch with
a 31-20 surprise.
However Agase',s ecstasy has been meager since the upset
of the Irish. With this four-year contract expiring at the end
of this season and three losing records in as many seasons,
Agase needed the win over Michigan to prevent him from join-
ing Gerald Ford on the unemployment ranks.
Knowing they could preserve Agase's job, the Boilermak-
