Sports Editor
For a while yesterday it looked like Bump
Elliott shouldn't have worn a short-sleeved
shirt. Especially when, two minutes into the
final quarter, Michigan State converted
on a two-point PAT to take a 14-13 lead.
As it turned out, however, Elliott didn't
have to pull anything out from under his
sleeve to beat the Spartans.
An impromptu pass play, a tipped MSU
aerial, and a pair of broken tackles shoved
the Wolverines to their first victory in a
conference opener in four years; 28-14.
The key play was a 53-yard touchdown
pass from Dennis Brown to tight end Jim
MVandich five minutes after State took
the one-point lead. The pass, however,
wasn't really supposed to work that way.
"I wasn't the primary receiver on the
play," said Mandich after the game. "It
was a bootleg where Brown was going to
pass to (Ron) Johnson. But Dennis got
trapped and had to look for someone else.
"I was right in his line of vision," Man-
dich continued, "And I had a step on my
man. The pass was perfect and I had clear
sailing the rest of the way to the goal
The Wolverines converted for two on a
Brown pass to fullback Garvie Crawi and
the score stood 21-14. The Spartans came
right back, however, and appeared headed
for an equalizer when the next big play
turned off their steam. Quarterback Bill
Feraco spotted ace flanker Chuck Wede-

meyer alone downfield from his perch on
the Michigan 40 and let go with a bullet
that might have gone for paydirt, except
for Phil Seymour's long fingers.
Seymour, Wolverine defensive and spe-
cialist who tied teammate Tom Goss for
game honors with 14 tackles, barely man-
aged to tip the pigskin away from Wede-
meyer's waiting arms.
That broke State's momentum, and on
the next play, safety Tom Curtis picked
off a pass to end the scoring threat.
After that, Brown, Craw, and Johnson
rambled 83 yards in nine plays for the
clincher TD-with Craw smashing through
two would-be Spartan tacklers for the final
25-yarder which sealed State's fate.
The Michigan locker room was one big
smile afterward.
"We'll win eight more this year," shouted
Johnson, who racked up 152 yards in 19
carries for the afternoon. There are only
six games left on the regular season sched-
ule, but the Wolverine captain failed to
elaborate on his prediction.
"I think this one will make us GO!"
opined the 6'2", 220-pound tackle Goss.
"Those of us who are seniors have been
waiting four years to beat MSU."
"This is just the beginning," stated jubi-
lant Director of Athletics Donald Canham,
Head coach Elliott looked relieved. "I've'
never been happier for a group of guys to
win a game." he said. Brother Pete, former
Illinois mentor, offered his congratulations.

A different sort of gentleman, in a dif-
ferent sort of atmosphere, had a slightly
different reaction. Michigan State Spartan
coach, Duffy Daugherty. spoke in soft, de-
jected tones about his team's first loss of
the season:
"We had the ball for 90 plays and they
only ran 51 . . ." he said, voice trailing off.
"Nevertheless, you can't take anything away
from Michigan. They knew how to take ad-
vantage of their scoring opportunities."
For much of the game, the Wolverines
made their own breaks. Speedster George
Hoey took the opening kickoff and raced
all the way to the Spartan 49. Five plays
later, Johnson swept around left end into
the open and galloped for a 38-yard touch-
down-his fifth of the season.
Michigan State came right back, with
Feraco and Wedemeyer slashing around the
ends for big gains. At the 5:32 mark, soared
37 yards unscathed on a naked reverse to
cut the Wolverine lead to one point. The
PAT attempt was wide.
After the kickoff and a pair of punts,
Michigan started out on its own 26. Brown
found his aim and hit Mandich for 38 to
get into State territory, and then a 33-yard
bomb to flanker John Gabler shot the Maize
and Blue into another seven-point lead.
And that's right where it stayed as Tim Kil-
lian booted low on the conversion attempt.
At that time there were still about three-
and-one-half minutes left in the first period.
There had been three touchdowns in under
