OSU, Purdue favored; MSU in key battle

Soph Hill:

'M' defensive surprise

Ohio State seeks to continue its
rise to the top of the nation's foot-
ball polls today as they take on
Northwestern's Wildcats in what
should be one of the leading mis-
matches of the young Big Ten
The Buckeyes have rocketed to,
second place just behind Southern
California in the pollsters' judg-
ment as a result of their stunning
13-0 victory over Purdue last week.
With a starting cast consisting
largely of sophomores, OSU was
supposed to be a year from foot-
ball greatness.
But last week's shocker proved
that Woody Hayes' charges belong
among the nation's elite, as they
shredded the Boilermaker defense
for nearly 350 yards rushing and
held Leroy Keyes to a mere 19
yards. The rock-ribbed defensive
unit, which ranks third in the
country in points-allowed (6.7 per,
game), scored a touchdown of
their own last Saturday on a 34
yard interception return.
Ohio State will be without the
services of their halfback, John
Brockington, but should have
little trouble defeating a worn-out

Northwestern eleven, which de-1
serves some kind of purple heart
for its suicide schedule. The Wild-
cats, now 0-4, have challenged

(6). Last, Saturday, against the
Irish, the Northwestern defensive
unit showed for the first time this
year that it can be stingy, holding
Notre Dame to a 7-0 lead at the
half. However, the offense again
displayed it characteristic inept-
ness, garnering only one touch-
down the entire afternoon.
In a crucial Big Ten encounter,
Minnesota journeys to East Lan-
sing to crack heads with Michigan
State. The Gophers, one of the
pre-season favorites for, the con-
ference crown, have faltered re-
cently, barely squeaking by a weak

this series, as they have. dropped

The only other conference game
besides the Michigan-Indiana
clash pits a young but promising
Iowa eleven hosting a weak' and
hopeless Wisconsin team. Iowa,
which again was supposed to play
the role of the doormat for the'
other conference teams, has sur-
prised everyone by whipping high-
ly-regarded Oregon State in its
opener and'then nearly whipping
Big Ten champion Iowa last Sat-
urday. The Hawkeyes gathered 531
yards in total offense against the
Hoosiers before bowing 38-34.

back Bill Montgomery who have
helped the Razorbacks to pile up
138 points in four games.
Texas won't be outshined in the
offense department, though. As a
matter of fact, the Longhorns

Two top ranked teams, South-
ern Cal and Kansas, have games
that look easy on paper but could
turn into trouble.
O. J. Simpson leads the Trojans
against a Washington team that
has shown an ability to score
points, despite winning only one
game. A letdown could be disas-
trous against such an offensive
minded crew but USC should be
able to go to Simpson enough
times to pull out a victory.

Nebraska for a must game, one
that both squads need to stay alive
in the conference race.
Nebraska relies on its defense
and it has been good. enough to
beat all comers except Kansas. The
offense can best be described as
adequate, but Ernie Sigler, Dick
Davis, Joe Orduna and F r a n k
Patrick are capable backs and
score enough points for Nebra-
ska's needs.
Nebraska's attack will have to
be at its best since Missouri has
only allowed 30 points this seaon.
The Tigers' offense is in about the
same shape as the Huskers',
though, so a battle of the lines
can be expected.
