TCU’s boy wonder, Dennis Nutt, was held to just 12 points — far off his 22.4 average in Southwest Conference play. And TCU coach Jim Killing- sworth didn’t think the Aggies aggressive man-to-man defense was much of a factor in Nutt’s poor performance. “Dennis did a great job on De nnis,” Killingsworth said. But Tracy Mitchell and Car- ven Holcombe were confident. They picked up where Nutt left off to score 25 of the Frogs 33 first half points. The Aggies played good de fense, but aggressive play wasn’t enough, Gilbert said. “We knew their offense,” he said, “it’s the same one we run. But everything they put up they hit.” The Aggies turned the tables in the second half. The duet of Brown and Todd Holloway did dominate the boards in the second half the way Mitchell and Holcombe did in the first. Within a minute and a half, the Aggies had slimmed the Frogs lead to 40-36. “We knew that in order to win, Kenny and Todd would have to hit from the outside,”* Metcalf said. “This is the best game Kenny’s had since the pre season tournaments.” It was a good game for Brown who scored 16 points and grab bed nine rebounds. It was also a good game for Holloway who came hack full force from a strained knee suf fered during the Houston game. Holloway led the Aggies in scor ing with 22 points and two cru cial steals, steals that got the 4,204 crowd in G. Rollie on its feet. “The crowd gets behind the team and we just go, go, go,” Holloway said. “We wish we could take them on the road with us.” The crowd did help build in tensity.

Raiders reign, 38-9, rewrite record book United Press International TAMPA, Fla. — Marcus Allen sparked the Los Angeles Raiders to the most lopsided vic tory in Super Bowl history, dashing for a record 191 yards and ripping off a record 74-yard touchdown burst Sunday to de molish the Washington Red skins 38-9. Washington, the defending NFL champion, entered the game as the highest-scoring club in NFL history but it was the Raiders, the black sheep in the NFL family, who ran up points in record numbers. The 38 points were the most ever scored in a Super Bowl and the 29-point margin of victory was the greatest in 18 Super Bowls. Allen, who came on strong in the playoffs to help carry the Raiders to the Super Bowl, broke John Riggins’ record of 166 yards with a spectacular per formance on Sunday and was the unanimous choice as the game’s MVP. Washington, which trailed 21-3 at halftime, cut the lead to 21-9 in the third period. Then Allen took over. He pushed Los Angeles to a 28-9 lead in the third quarter with a slithering 5-yard touch down run and then ended the Redskins-’ dream of a second consecutive Super Bowl win by dashing 74 yards for a touch down on a broken play to end the third period. Allen applied the death blow as time ran out in the third. He began sweeping left end only to be greeted by several Redskins defenders. He re versed his direction, eluded a tackle by Ken Coffey behind the line of scrimmage and then bolted untoucheed up the mid dle to complete the 74-yard touchdown run. It was the longest scoring run in a Super Bowl, breaking the record of 58 yards set by Balti more’s Tom Matte in a 16-7 loss to the New York Jets in 1969. Allen’s TD came after the Raiders’ defense came up with a big play to stifle Washington’s final hopes. With his club trail ing 28-9, Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs decided to go for a first down on 4th-and-l at the Raid ers’ 26. Riggins tried the left side but was hit and knocked back for no gain by Rod Martin and Mike Davis. The Raiders got touchdowns IA Take Off G’zP/jy, ootZ TofiiO.

Raiders reserve tight end Der rick Jensen blocked a punt and recovered it for a first-quarter touchdown. Then backup line backer Jack Squirek returned an interception 5 yards for a TD seven seconds before halftime. Jensen broke through a block by Washington’s Otis Wonsley, blocked Jeff Hayes’ punt from the 23 and then raced into the end zone to recover the ball for a touchdown just 4:52 into the game. It was only the second time in Super Bowl history that a blocked punt had resulted in a touchdown. Minnesota’s Terry Brown had a similar score against Pittsburgh. Squirek, a little-used line backer from Illinois, was in serted into the game for his pass defense skills after Washington took over on its 12 with just 12 seconds left in the half. Theismann faked a screen pass to the right, wheeled and lofted a screen to the left toward Joe Washington. Squirek leaped in front of Washington and dashed five yards into the end zone with seven seconds left in the half for a 21-3 Raider lead. The Raiders’ big-play style also accounted for Los Angeles’ second score. Los Angeles took over on its 35 early in the second period, nursing a 7-0 lead. Plunkett threw a 50-yard pass down the middle to Cliff Branch at Washington’s 15. Allen went three yards to the 1 and Branch then froze cornerback Anthony Washington in his tracks with an inside move and caught the 12- yard touchdown pass from Plunkett all alone in the middle of the end zone for a 14-0 lead 5:46 into the second period. Washington’s only score of the first half — Moseley’s 24- yard field goal — came after a /3-yard march aided by a hotly- contested pass interference call against Raider cornerback Les ter Hayes. The call gave Washington a first down on the Raiders’ 34 and Theismann’s 20-yard pass to Clint Didier brought it to the 14. The Redskins pushed to the Raiders 7 but Theismann’s pass to Joe Washington in the end zone was broken up and Mosely, who earlier missed a 44-yard attempt, hit to make it 14-3. The 21 points tied a Super Bowl record for first-half scor ing set by Pittsburgh against Dal las in Super Bowl XIII five years ago. Washington, which scored an NFL-record 541 points this sea son, managed only Moseley’s field goal and the 1-yard scoring run by Riggins in losing for the first time in the last 12 games. Riggins’ run prouced an NFL- record, scoring in six consecu tive post-season games. Despite the big play by Squirek at the end of the first half. Washington came back at the start of the second half, cov ering 70 yards in nine plays to cut the lead to 21-9. Theismann’s 23-yard pass to Charlie Brown keyed the drive! and Riggins went over from the 1 for the score. But Plunkett took Los j Angeles right hack down the field, covering 70 yards in eight j plays. A 38-yard pass interfer-, ence call against Darrell Green: put the ball on the 30 and a six-! yard pass to Frank Hawkins on , 3rd-and-4 moved the Raiders to j the Redskins’ 5. Allen squirmed j up the middle for the score. Allen’s 39-yard burst set up , Chris Bahr’s 21-yard field goal \ which pushed the Raiders tot their record margin, topping ! the previous record of 35 points. * The Raiders, now 3-1 in Su- i per Bowjs, finished at 15-4 while 1 Washington, which had the best record in the NFL during the J regular season, wound up at 16- j 3. The Raiders, who were based in Oakland before they sued the j NFL and won the right to move I to Los Angeles last year, won 3, their third Super Bowl in four,[ appearances. They lost to Green By in Su- j 1 per Bowl II and then defeated Minneota and Philadelphia. The Raiders also became only 4 the second team to win three Su- j per Bowls. Pittsburgh holds the /! record with four. The victory was worth $36,000 to each of the Raiders q while the Redskins earned $18,000 each. Is e co Q. 0> cc o < 0) 0) a. E o Ken’s Automotive 421 S.
