artans: more stats, less score °S'"I"y


By JOE MARKER other Aone of their freque~nt inva-,

Last Saturday 102,789 scream-
ing fans jammed the Michigan
football oval for the 61st renewal'
of the Midwest's bitterest football
rivalry. For those readers who did
not see the game-either because
they could not latch on to tickets
or because they were too inebriat-
ed to appreciate the gridiron an-
tics (and there were many in the
latter category) here are the bare
First downs: MSU 25, Mich. 16.
Plays run: MSU 90, Michigan 55.
Rushing yardage: MSU 295,
Michigan 243.
Passing yardage: MSU 61,
Michigan 177.
However, the winner of the
battle of statistics is not neces-
sarily the, winner of the war.
Michigan won the game, 28-14,
simply because they were able to
reverse the momentum when it
was against them, while State
could not.
Late in the third quarter, with
the Maize and Blue hanging on to
a 13-6 lead, State mounted an-


sions into Michigan territory. With
monotonous regularity tailbacks
Don Highsmith and Earl Ander-
son pounded the Michigan line for
substantial yardage. Barely two
minutes into the final quarter,
Anderson lugged the ball three
yards to the apparently equalizing
As Charlie Wedermeyer knelt
for the tying conversion attempt,
Wolverine fans anxiously awaited
Michigan's next chance to break
the expected tie.
But no! Little Charlie straight-
ened up and fired a pass to Frank
Foreman for two points and and
the lead.
One could almost feel the de-
flation of the Michigan enthu-
siasm as they awaited another
Wolverine fourth quarter collapse.
Michigan was stopped cold after
the ensuing kickoff, and the time
was ripe for State to 'finish off
their poor neighbors. But the
Michigan defense stiffened, for-
cing the .Spartans to punt and
giving Michigan the ball deep in

its own territory. Two passes
brought the ball out to the 47
yard line.
Then Dennis Brown connected
with Jim Mandich for 53 yards
and the go-ahead touchdown on a
broken play which Coach Bump
Elliott later described accurately
as, "not going exactly the way we
planned it." A two-point conver-
sion pass to Garvie Craw restored.
the Wolverones' seven point lead.
Now Michigan had the momen-
tum in its favor and it remained
to be seen whether State could
come back. The answer wasn't
long in coming, as Michigan
scored again a few minutes later
to ice the Victory.
Although most fans, in remem-
bering The Game, will only recall
the fourth quarter heroics, the
bulk of the action consisted of aJ
fierce line battle, especially in the JIM MANDICH
