SWT Bobcats blast Prairie View, 46-7
By DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer
Southwest Texas State Head Coach John O'Hara was all smiles Saturday night after a 46-7 win over Prairie View AAM. His first game as head coach was now a victory, and he was still in one piece.
"My heart was pumping 1,000 mph when I came out of that dressing room," O’Hara said. "It was so overwhelming. I couldn’t think of anywhere I'd rather be."
First-game jitters kept the first half close. The Bobcats engineered an Bayard scoring drive late in the first quarter. Quarterback David Longhofer ran five yards for the score, but his PAT failed.
Neat Neunhoffer added three more with his 20-yard field goal. SWT led, IM), with 7:47 left in the first half.
Then the Bobcats gave Prairie View an early Christmas present. SWT fueled a 74-yard Panther drive with 51 yards in penalties to push Prairie View to the 5-yard-line. Timothy Pitts took it in for the touchdown, which was the first time SWT had been scored on in an opening game since 1979.
Panther Boyce Gunnel added the extra point, and the Bobcats went to the dressing room with a 9-7 lead.
SWT scored on its first possession of the third quarter. Running back Ricky Sanders ran for 30 yards and then 14 yards. Partner Erie Cobble took over up the middle for another 14 and finally, the 16-yard touchdown run. The PAT went through the uprights, and SWT’s lead had grown to 16-7.
Sanders was instrumental in setting up SWT’s next score with a 56-yard punt return. Two plays later, Teddy Steele ran up the middle for three yards and a
The Panther offense sputtered again, the punt snap went over the head of Wilbert Meyers, and SWT was set up on the Prairie View 11-yard line. Two plays later, Longhofer ran up the middle for nine yards and a 30-7 lead.
The fourth quarter proved to be more of the same. On the Bobcats’ second possession, SWT toyed with the the Panther defense on a 56-yard scoring drive. Ron Gaskin scored the touchdown from the three, and the Bobcat lead jumped to 37-7.
An interception set up SWT’s final touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. Billy Booker scored on a 19-yard run, and Neunhoffer’s PAT was good again.
Insult was added to injury when Panther quarterback Darryl Terral was tackled in the end zone by Bobcats Tai Milan and Ken Collins for a safety with two minutes left on the clock. The final score was SWT 46, Prairie View 7.
After the game, O’Hara said his game plan had been to alternate sophomore Longhofer and freshman Rene Maldonado at quarterback, giving each three series in succession. He stuck to his guns, and was impressed by what he saw.
"I thought they both executed very well. They both did some good stuff, and they were equal tonight," O’Hara said, adding he hoped to pick a starter by Thursday.
But that doesn’t mean both won’t see plenty of action.
Longhofer said, "We’U probably be breathing down each other’s necks this year, next year and the year after that."
Razorbacks trip Hurricane, 17-14
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Sophomore cornerback Greg Gatson made two big pass interceptions and quarterback Brad Taylor set up two touchdowns with pass completions on the run as Arkansas held on to defeat Tulsa 17-14 Saturday.
Tulsa had a chance to tie but Jason Staurovsky’s 43-yard field goal attempt into the wind was wide to the left and short. The kick came as time ran out.
Hurricane quarterback Steve Gage, a freshman redshift, gave Tulsa a chance when he went 50 yards on an option play for a touchdown with 8:51 left in the fourth quarter. Gage also completed a 10-yard pass to start Tulsa’s Anal drive and converted two first downs when he kept on the option play.
Gatson, who was credited with two tackles during the 1962 season, stepped in front of pass by Gage at the Arkansas 2 to stop a first quarter threat and then stretched out for an interception at the Tulsa 27 that set up the first Arkansas score late in the first half.

UT No. 1 quarterback separates shoulder
AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas Longhorn quarterback scramble temporarily has lost Todd Dodge, the top contender for the starting job, to a shoulder separation suffered in the last preseason scrimmage.
UT Coach Fred Akers said it’s "pretty likely" that Dodge, first-string quarterback throughout fall drills, will miss next Saturday's opener against Auburn.
The injury could make either Rick Mclvor or Rob MoerSchell the opening day signal-caller for the Horns.
Trainer Spunky Stephens said Dodge could be out longer than one game. The rehabilitation time for a shoulder separation is "on the average about three weeks, some sooner, some later," said Stephens.
Doctors are 90 percent sure that Dodge will not need surgery. More X-rays are scheduled for Monday, however.
"It’s not as bad as they thought at first," said Dodge, a Port Arthur junior.
"It was just numb when I first hurt it, but a couple of plays later, my left shoulder was just hanging there. Luckily, it wasn’t my right one,” said the righthanded thrower.

Cowboys fear letdown
ST. LOUIS (AP) -The Dallas Cowboys are worried that the high achieved in Washington last Monday night is going to bottom out in St. Louis Sunday.
"If we lose in St. Louis," said wide receiver Drew Pearson, "the Washington game will be put on the back seat — and that’s the last thing in the world we want right now. We worked too hard in the heat and humidity for that."
The Cowboys are coming off a 31-30 victory over the Redskins, a remarkable comeback from a 23-3 halftime deficit. The Cardinals lost their season opener 2617 last Sunday in New Orleans as young quarterback Neil Lomax suffered a
bruised shoulder that will keep him sidelined against Dallas. Veteran Jim Hart will start.
Tony Dorset!, who rushed for 151 yards against the 'Skins, said the Cowboys appear to have suffered a letdown.
"Practice just wasn’t as crisp as it should have bMn," he said. "The guys were just going through the motions. That was all we could do under the circumstances."
In one respect, this week won’t be any different than last week. The fans in St. Louis are as vocal as the Redskins’ faithful.
"They treat us just like they treat us in Washington,” said Pearson. "They hate us."
