Dream Matchup Set in Pasadena

Unbeaten Trojans, Longhorns headed for Rose Bowl

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The anticipation of a Southern

California-Texas matchup in the Rose Bowl began long before the

season.

One by one, the other top teams lost, leaving the Trojans and

Longhorns standing alone as the nation's only unbeatens. Both had

to survive late-season scares, and both rolled to one-sided

victories to finish the year.

That being the case, it was formally announced yesterday that

top-ranked U-S-C and Number Two Texas will play for the national

title January Fourth in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

U-S-C will bring a 34-game winning streak into the title game

and is shooting for an unprecedented third straight national

championship. Texas has won 19 straight, including a 38-to-37

triumph over Michigan in last year's Rose Bowl.
