Aloha Bowl

It wasn't as if Terry Donahue needed another emotional angle to add to today's game against Kansas. The mere fact that this will be his final game as UCLA's head coach after 20 years on the job is enough to cause a lump in his throat when he takes the field. But his emotional feelings will stretch to the other side of the field as well. It was at the University of Kansas where Donahue began his coaching career after playing at UCLA as a defensive tackle in the mid 60s.

Syracuse and Arizona want to work out some frustrations on each other in the Aloha Bowl. Early ties against Michigan State and Pittsburgh started the Orangemen toward a disappointing 6-4-2 finish. Arizona's wins over nationally ranked Illinois and USC were coupled with losses to Oregon State, Stanford and California as the Wildcats finished 7-4. "We could have had a lot more," said Arizona All-American cornerback Darryl Lewis, the Pacific 10 Conference's co-defensive player of the year.

Many UCLA supporters will remember today's Aloha Bowl as Terry Donahue's farewell game. The Bruins' financial department, however, will remember it for a different reason. "I would just say that playing in the Aloha Bowl is not a very profitable situation," said Steve Salm, a UCLA associate athletic director in charge of business and finance. "And, that would be an understatement." That's because UCLA will be lucky to break even, despite the Aloha Bowl's $750,000 payout.

UCLA officials have been assured by officials of the Aloha Bowl that no decision will be made on a Pacific 10 Conference representative for that event until after Saturday's games. A Bruin victory over USC would give UCLA a 7-4 season mark and, it would appear, clinch an Aloha berth. "They said we are still under consideration," Coach Terry Donahue said. "If we win, we have a better chance than if we don't."

As USC got ready to depart today for Tokyo and a Mirage Bowl game with Oregon Saturday, the school learned Sunday that its traveling schedule has been expanded. Unexpectedly, USC was invited to and accepted an invitation to play Alabama in the Aloha Bowl on Dec. 28 in Honolulu. Call 'em the traveling Trojans--a round trip of approximately 11,000 miles to Tokyo and then a 5,000-mile round trip to Hawaii next month. A week ago, USC's chances of playing in a postseason bowl game were slim and none.

It took Arizona 65 years, but the Wildcats finally won a bowl game, beating North Carolina, 30-21, Saturday in the Aloha Bowl. "It's great to finish on a winning note, that's what counts," said Arizona Coach Larry Smith, whose team was beaten, 29-24, by Stanford in its regular-season finale. The Wildcats, 0-4-1 in bowl games stretching back to 1921, built a 30-0 lead in the third quarter, but the Tar Heels rallied with three touchdowns. "At the half, we had controlled the game," Smith said.

After a bad week of workouts leading up to Friday's Aloha Bowl, Kansas kicker Dan Eichloff connected on two field goals, including a game-deciding 48-yarder with 2:57 to play, as the Jayhawks beat Brigham Young, 23-20. "That was the first time I ever had a chance to win a game for us," Eichloff said. "It was a big kick for me, because I started off bad." Coach Glen Mason said Eichloff had not only kicked poorly in recent practices, but "looked awful" during pregame drills.
