DEFENSE: Illinois' John DiFeliciantonio, a 6'3", 240-pound senior, contributed seven tackles, three of them accounting for 23 yards in losses, as he led his team's defense in the Illini's 31-6 upset of sixth-ranked Missouri.

OFFENSE: Despite a pulled hamstring that made him a doubtful starter, Earl Campbell, Texas' 231-pound fullback, carried the ball 32 times for a career-high 208 yards as the Longhorns edged North Texas State 17-14.
