_ NEW ORLEANS-The South-
eastern Conference may con-
sider tying its football champion
to the Sugar Bowl since the
Big Ten and Pac-8 seem to be
loosening strings on their ran-
nersup, Louisiana State Athletic
f 5 Director Carl Maddox said.
"If I were the Sugar Bowl, I
would mount a new offensive at
landing an SEC tieup," Maddox
"I'm sure our conference will
reexamine our policy of not ty-
ing up with any bowl.
"Speaking personally, I have
always been in favor of our
champion playing in the Su-
gar. It was a partial feeling,
I'm sure. I simply felt that if
LSU was champion, it belong-
ed in the Sugar as a state uni-
"However, there was pretty
good sentiment around the con-
ference for keeping things as
they are, the feeling being that
if your champion was locked
up, it would make the other
SEC teams less desirable."
The four major bowls cur-
rently offer four openings, one
of which is generally filled by
the SEC champ. The Rose Bowl
is closed to anyone other than
the Big Ten or Pac-8 champ.

NOSTALGIA is the vogue these days, and the San Francisco Giants did their bit yesterday with a classic imitation of t
New York Mets. When Philadelphia's Terry Harmon bunted, the Giants gambled and tried to nail runner Jerry Martin

closer to Seattle with a 4-1 loss.

OMAHA, Neb. - Bob Pate's
11th inning single and a master-
ful four-hitter by John Poloni
gave Arizona State a 1-0 victory
over Oklahoma in an elimina-
tion-round game in the College
World Series.
The tournament's only un-
beaten, South Carolina, 50-4, met
Texas, 54-6, in the night's other
AN INFIELD single by Ken
Landreax, a sacrifice and Pate's
single to center broke up a su-
perb pitching duel between Po-
loni and Oklahoma left-hander
Bob Shirley. Arizona State's
season mark moved to 61-12,
Poloni, a junior left-hander,
allowed only four scattered sin-
gles and at one point retired 15

in a row. No Oklahoma runner
advanced past second base.
Poloni ran his record to 10-1.
He struck out eight and walked
only one.
SHIRLEY, losing his second
hard-luck series game, surren-
derd 12 hits before departing
with two out in the 11th, but was
tough with men on base.
The game's only scoring op-
portunity before the 11th came
in the 10th when Arizona State's
Clay Westlake singled, but was
thrown out at the plate on a
double by Chris Nyman.
Oklahoma, 52-10, had two run-
ners on in only the 10th inning,
when Kelley Snider singled with
two out and moved to second on
an infield error. However, Po-
loni then retired the side on a
ground ball.
