Rex Kern passed for two touch-
'downs and scored another yester-
day sparking No. 2 ranked Ohiir
State past winless Northwestern
The unbeaten Buckeyes, winning
their fourth straight and eighth
in a row over a two-year span
couldn't shake the Wildcats until
a fourth quarter explosion netted
three touchdowns.
Fullback Jim Otis's second six-
yard TD run sealed the decision.
Northwestern, which has lost all
five starts, led early 7-6 and trail-
ed only 21-14 at halftime and
27-21 after three quarters.
But Kern directed two fourth
quarter thrusts that pulled the
Bucks away.
The super-soph connected with
Jan White on a 72-yard touch-
down strike and hit Bruce Jan-
kowski in the end zone with a 23-
yarder. He also scored on a seven-

los, one of the two banished mem-
bers of the U.S.. Olympic team,
said Saturday he planned to sue
the U.S. Olympic Committee for
defamation of character, and
added: "I am going to nail them
to the wall."
"I have a lawyer in Los An-
geles and a lawyer in New York,"
he said. "They have told me that
that U.S. Olympic Committee act-
ed in violation of the constitution.
I am going to see to it that they
have to pay."

The senior quarterback hurled
three touchdown passes in guid-

nine yards to Coley O'Brien and
23 to Bob Gladieux. A 30-yard
field goal by Scott Hempel pre-
ceeding the Hanratty-Seymour
