Watching is_________________________________________________ Cold, windy iveather set for Minnesota Sunday showdowns already under way By THE CANADIAN PEESS Dallas Cowboys hurled the Na- tional Football Conference's most potent ground attack against the fortress-Like defence of Detroit Lions today while the voung Cincinnati Bengals of the American Conference tackled the veteran Baltimore Colts as the National Football League's post-season playoffs got under way. Dallas coach Torn Landry, who has brought his cowboys into the playoffs before but has never seen a league champion- ship says he's not about to try to avoid the Lions' mam strength. "We run the ball the best and that's what we've got to I says Landry. "We know Detroit has a great defence, but we'll just give it the best shot we have." Despite Landry's hopes, the oddsmakers have installed the Lions a four-point favorite over the Cowboys. Baltimore's Johnny Unitas worked out in preparation for Sports teams file suits PHILADELPHIA (A P) Two professional Pliilalelphia sports teams are among four or- ganizations which have been awarded an settlement of .a federal court law suit against architects of the Phila- delphia Spectrum. The '76ers National Basket- ball Association team, the Flyers National Hockey League team, Spectrum Arena Inc. and Ice Capades Inc. fifed the suit in 1969 against Skidmore, Ow- ings and Merrill, Chicago archi- tects who designed the South Philadelphia indoor sports facil- ity. The suit arises from incidents Feb. 17 and March when winds blew off portions of the Spectrum roof. The plaintiffs said when the Spectrum was closed after the damage, the '76ers had to play in Convention Hall, perform- ances of the Ice Capades had to be cancelled and the Flyers played homegames as far away as Quebec. The Spectrum firm claimed loss in revenue and money for roof repairs. Cincinnati despite discomfort in his right side and is expected to start for the Colls, who are 614- point favorites over the Ben- gals.

Conference championships are scheduled for Jan. 3 with the Three clubs seeking honor Who's number one? By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas, Ohio State and Ne- braska, the Three Musketeers of the 1970 college football season, will be all for one this week- No. 1, that is, But unlike the original all-for- one-and-one-for-all trio, each member of this threesome will be hoping fervently that his two rivals for the national champi- onship get nothing but the worst. The remaining eight bowl including all-star be played in a six-day period from Monday through Saturday. Unbeaten Toledo o! the Mid- American Conference and Wil- liam and Mary's Southern Con- ference champs square off in the Tangerine Bowl at Orlando, Fla., Monday night. Unbeaten Arizona State and North Carolina slug it out Wednesday night in the Peach Bowl at Atlanta. The Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl in the Houston Astrodome Thurs- day night, New Year's Eve, matches Oklahoma and Ala- bama. The battle for No. 1 takes place New Year's Day. Top- rated Texas has a rematch with sixth-ranked Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas, runner- up in the Rose Bowl at Pasa- dena, Calif., and third-ranked Nebraska meets No. 5 Louisana State under the Orange Bowl lights in Miami. Meanwhile, hoping for a mira- cle that will see the three lead- ers all lose, fourth-rated Ten- nessee takes on the Air Force in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans. Finally, on Saturday, Auburn and, Mississippi, two Southeast- Fifth straiglit for the North MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Kansas football enemies Lynn Dickey and John Riggins joined forces Friday to spark North to its fifth-straight victory over South with a 28-7 triumph in the Shine All-Star game. Kansas State quarterback Dickey marched the North to two of the touchdowns and Kan- sas Jayhawk speedster Riggins flew 13 yards on> a sweep for one score and ripped eight yards on a draw for another. A crowd of only watched the North even the charity series for college sen- iors at ll-ll-l. Goerge Jakowenko of Syra- cuse kicked two field goals for the North, which hasn't lost the Christmas Day event since 1965. Quarterback Charlie Richard of Richmond snapped a 47-yard pass to West Texas Stale sprinter Rocky Thompson for the South's only touchdown.

"I can think of a lot of better ways to spend the holidays than trying to defense Texas' triple says Notre Dame's Ara Farseghian. "Texas is an awesome team. They come as close to perfec- tion as you can 'get." The Rose Bowl game will mark the last appearance of Ohio State's renowned sopho- mores of 1968, who capped a perfect season with an impres- sive defeat of Southern Califor- nia and 0. J. Simpson in the Rose Bowl, LOST ONE GAME Now seniors, they have won 27 of 28 games, losing only to Michigan last season, a setback they avenged dramatically last month. Thirteen players who started against USC two years ago will be in the opening lineup, including two-time all- Arnericans Jack Tatum and Jim Stillwagon. Stanford's hopes ride on the rifle arm of quarterback Jim Plunkett, the Heisman Trophy winner. The Orange Bowl pairs Ne- braska's powerhouse offence, second only to Texas in scoring, against LSU's cat-quick and rock-ribbed defence. Tennessee's defence, which intercepted a record 36 passes, has its work cut out against the explosive Air Force, which fea- tures the aerial thrusts of Bob Parker to Ernie Jennings and the highest scoring one-two punch in major college history in tailback Brian Bream and Jennings, winners advancing to the Jan. 17 Super Bowl at Miami. Duane Thomas and Walt Gar- rison started in the Dallas backfield behind quarterback Craig Morton, but the man who worried Detroit coach Joe Schmidt the most is receiver Bob Hayes. "You certainly have to re- spect Hayes' said Schmidt. "Any team that pre- pares for the Cowboys has got to make adjustments for Hayes. He may not catch a lot of balls but he can catch one and beat you." The Cowboys, with Calvin Hill to back up Thomas and Garri- son, are the AFC's top rushing club. But Detroit, with a defen- sive line anchored by Alex Kar- ras, led the league in rushing defence with an average yield of only 82 yards a game. And although the Lions rank only 10th in pass-defence statistics, they share the lead with Minne- sota in interceptions at 28. COI.TS RECORD SHINES Baltimore goes into its game with Cincinnati with .an impres- sive 11-2-1 record and led the AFC with 321 points. The Ben- gals won seven in a row after a 1-6 start but their players are virtually unknown. Baltimore coach Don Mc- C a f f e r t y has been studying films of the Bengals for the last week and says: "Their over-all team speed is incredible." The Bengals, only in their third year in the league, fin- ished runner-up to the Colts with 312 points. Miami enters its first playoffs with a 10-4 record and with a team vastly improved on off- ence and defence. Larry Csonka givees the Dolphins a power run- ner to balance the passing of quarterback Bob Griese and star receiver Paul Warfield, who missed part of the season with injuries, is expected to be back for Sunday's game. The Raiders won the AFC Western Division with an 8-4-2 record. Frigid weather is expected in Minnesota for the Vikings' clash with the M9ers. The game matches the NFL's No. 1 offen- sive team, San Francisco, against Minnesota's league-lead- ing defence.
