Spartanis sucunmb in first period

Theefired-up Woiverines looked
right through .the Spartan jerseys
and helmets, which have hypno-
tized them into submission in the
past, and playedgtheir most satis-
fying football game in the last
Our years.
Michigan did things yesterday
that the Maize and Blue just,
couldn't come up with in recent'
seasons. The Wolverines NEVER
go out on the field in the first
quarter andtry to blow the oppo-
sition off the field.
*OW YESTERDAY
Michigan usually plays "feel-,
out 1your-opponent'' football in the
first 15 minutes; but not yester-
day. The Wolverines, in great
spirits following two smashing
victories over ~ Duke and Navy,
mixed it up for two, count them,
;vo touchdowns before the second
quarter began. With a Michigan
State score sprinkled in for good
measure, the game had all the in-
gredients for a high scoring
thriller.
After settling down to good,
hard fighting but scoreless foot-
Sall, in the second and third
tanzas, the Wolverines did things
in the fourth quarter that Mich-
igan teams aren't expected to do.
They came from behind, not from
a tie as in the Duke game last
year, but from behind to win in
smashing fashion.
After substitute fullback Earl'
nderson scored State's second
touchdown and Charlie Wedemey-
er passed to Frank Foreman fort
a two point conversion to put the
Spartans ahead 14-13 early in the
fourth quarter, the Michigan fans

SCORED TWICE
Michigan scored twice before the
game was over to give the Wol-
verines their first win over Mich-
igan State since 1964, the Rose
Bowl year. In the last four sea-
sons, the Wolverines have not
been known to do things like that
and certainly not the way they
scored.
Michigan won the game on a
broken pass pattern. Quarterback
Dennis Brown had to elude an
oncoming Spartan tackler before
passing to Jim Mandich, who was
improvising after finishing his
pass pattern, for a 53 yard touch-
down strike.
The Wolverines, ahead 19-14,
weren't through with their impro-
vising, however. Michigan elected
to go for two and Brown rolled
right looking for a pass receiver.
To his surprise and to that of the
Spartans, fullback Garvie Craw
was' open just inside the backline
of the endzone where Brown hit
for the conversion.'
'BIG MISTAKE'
As a jubilant Craw put it after
the game, "It was all a big mis-
take on my part. I missed the man
I was supposed to block but Denny
was great. He saw me open and
hit me. It was peachy keen."
Craw made up for his "mistake"
minutes later when he ran 25
yards for the score that put the
game out of reach of the Spfrtans.
The Spartans dominated play
throughout most of the game, run-
ning 90 plays to the Wolverines' 55
but the Michigan defense wouldn't
let up in the clutch. In the past'
it has been the Maize and Bluel

(Continued from Page 1)
12 minutes of action and everyone
was settling down for a ring-a-
ding-dandy offensive show.
But then everything just seemed
to poop out.
State moved the ball fairly well
up the middle against a revamped
Wolverine defense thrown up to
stop Feraco and Wedemeyer on
the wide gains. But every drive
ran out of gas deep in Michigan
territory, and field goal kicker
Michigan apparently survived
yesterday's hard-fought victory
over Michigan State without
any serious injuries. Flanker
John Gabler left the game in the
second quarter with a bruised
rib, but head coach Bump El-
liott said he expects Gabler to
be all right for next week's game
with Indiana.
Gary Boyce couldn't quite find
the mark.
The Wolverines, were stopped
cold every time they got the ball.
Two drives ended in punts and the
third culminated in an intercep-
tion.
The third quarter, with Michi-
gan still leading 13-6, wasn't
much better. This time around,
Killian tried a field goal for the
Wolverines from 32 yards out, but
it flew wide to the left.
Finally, the Spartans started
what eventually proved to be an
80-yard drive and the go-ahead
touchdown. It took 17 plays and

MICHIGAN'S RON JOHNSON (40) rips through the Michigan State line to gain part of the 152
yards that he piled up yesterday. Jim Mandich (88), Dave Denzin (52), and Bob Penska (76)
threw the blocks that helped to spring Johnson loose on his gallop through the Spartan defenders.

20-20 offense which has invar-
iably spelled defeat. The Wolver-
ines would drive down to the 20
and give up the ball without scor-
ing.
Yesterday, the Michigan defense
let Michigan State have just about
anything between the 20 yard
strips on .either side of the field
but only twice could the Spartans
penetrate further for scores. It
was that kind of a day, a com-

plete reversal from games in the
past when Michigan has domi-
nated play but come out on the
short end.
"The team was just anxious to
play," said Hank Fonde, defense
coordinator. "We were bearing
down all over and came up with
the big play when we had to."
It doesn't fit the script of past
Michigan nail biters. The Wolver-
ines always seemed to collapse un-
der pressure.
