ELLISON AGGIELAND North Gate College Station Buckeye offense stuns Ags By CLIFFORD BROYLES Battalion Sports Editor The Ohio State University Buckeyes powered their way through the Texas Aggies with a devastating offense, but showed a weakness on the defensive side despite their 56-13 win at Ohio Stadium in Columbus Saturday before a capacity throng of 85,- 657. The Buckeye offense, truly a great unit, overpowered the Ag gies in every respect, scoring the first three times they got the ball. With Rex Kern, the man under, OSU’s offense was like a traveling magic show. You didn’t know what was going to happen next. Kern, an outstanding faker, engineered the Buckeyes in the first half and then turned the duties over to Ron Maciejowski, who has been the understudy to Artist Showcase presents ALEGRIA ARCE Pianist “ARCE BRILLIANT IN CONCERT . . .

Kern’s deceptiveness seemed to put even the fans in a stir won dering where the ball was. “Ohio State’s attack was more deceptive. Their fakes and handoffs were difficult to follow,” A&M middle linebacker Mike Lord commented after the frus trating contest. Kern was the Buckeyes’ third leading rusher, gaining 71 yards on seven carries as he used his rollout style of play to the ut most effectiveness. Left half back Leophus Hayden led the Buckeye runners with 91 yards on 14 carries. The Buckeyes chewed up 415 yards rushing and 98 more pass ing in the contest. The Buckeyes’ signal caller was not dropped for a loss once while Lex James was dropped for a minus 51 yards by the Buckeye rush. The Ohio State offense was devastating. It put the icing on early and held off an Aggie comeback just before the half to lead 28-7. The second half belonged to the Buckeyes also, thanks more than anything else to Aggie mis takes. Only a week ago, A&M recov ered three LSU fumbles and in tercepted three Tiger passes to take a 20-18 victory, but Satur day the Aggies lost four fumbles and had one pass picked off. The Buckeyes took the open ing kickoff and moved 74 yards for the touchdown and the Ag gies took over. For a time it looked like the Aggies might do the same after picking up two consecutive first downs, but they fumbled on their 37 and it took the Buckeyes only four plays to mark up their sec ond touchdown. A&M mistakes were at a min imum for the rest of the half, and with James’ passing leading the way the Ags got on the scoreboard early in the second period and came within 14 yards of narrowing the gap to a touch down before they were stopped. Ohio State taking advantage of the Aggie mistakes, moved quickly in for four scores in the second half. After moving the second half kickoff 74 yards OSU scored three more times in the third period and early fourth period, while the Aggies ran no more than two plays on four consecu tive possessions with the football. James, who was voted two awards by United Press Inter national for his performance against LSU sparkled again from the pitcher’s mound as he com pleted 18 of 30 for 271 yards and was on target enough to hit at least six more of those passes. Tight end Homer May became the first Aggie to score more than one touchdown when he snagged two TD passes from James for both A&M scores. For the second week in a row James spread his passes among numerous receivers in making the passing game a bright spot. Hugh McElroy snagged four for 71 yards in the contest and also picked up 16 yards on an end around to lead the receivers. McElroy has now caught 13 passes for 318 yards and run the end around twice for 41 yards in three games this season. Joey Herr caught three passes for 52 yards, and Marc Black caught four for 38 yards as he worked as a safety valve receiver when the Aggies got in a tight spot. Steve Burks, Brad Dusek, Tommy Goodwin, Mitch Robert son and Johnny Gardner grabbed one pass each in the contest. The Buckeye defense was more than penetratable as the Aggies passed for 271 yards and ran for 50 more as they picked up 19 first downs. That amount of ground yard age is misleading, as A&M had a minus 51 yards charged to James when he was dropped while at tempting to pass. Other than that A&M had 28 rushing attempts for better than 100 yards, compared to only 29 yards before losses they man aged against LSU. Burks led A&M’s rushers with 28 yards on seven carries and Dusek had 21 yards on seven tries. McElroy got his 16 on the end around and Doug Neill added nine on three carries. Black had seven yards on four carries. The Aggies came out of the contest in fairly good physical shape, with only two injuries of any degree. Split receiver Tommy Goodwin suffered a hip pointer and Coach Gene Stallings said Monday his status for the Michigan game was in the air. Defensive end Todd Christo pher had a dislocated finger but it’s okay now except for a little soreness. The Aggies continued to do only a little punting. Jimmy Sheffield got in two kicks for 41 and 52 yards for a 46.5 aver age. The Buckeyes scored eight times, the Aggies twice, yet Shef field only punted twice. The Aggies gave the ball up on four fumbles and an interception as the Buckeyes proved their point of being ranked number one.
