Howard, the quarterback, rushed 53 times for 474 yards, nine touchdowns and 10 extra points and completed 14 of 24 passes for 150 yards and six TDs.

YELLOW SPRINGS, OHIO

DIANE and DEBBIE VETTER
"Two Vetters are better than one," says Coach Chris Murray, and the 21-year-old twins proved it by finishing one-two in the Big Eight women's cross-country championships in Manhattan, Kans. Sophomore Debbie ran the 5,000-meter course in 17:21, followed by freshman Diane 18 seconds later, to give Iowa State its third straight conference title. Last week in the Region 6 AIAW meet in Ames, Debbie won again (17:10), with Diane eighth, qualifying both for the nationals.
