THE MICHIGAN

Michigan rockets to ninth slot in national AP

poll

By The Associated Press
After a two year drought, Mich-
igan climbed back into the Asso-
ciated Press national Top Ten
yesterday, sliding into the ninth
position.
The Wolverines elevated them-
selves from the twelth position
held last week by virtue of their
33-20 victory over Minnesota.
Meanwhile, idle Southern Cali-
fornia widened its lead over.run-
nerup Ohio State while both Kan-
sas and Penn State closed ground
on the leaders.
The Trojans 5-0, who resume
activity at Oregon this week drew
24 of the first-place votes from
a national panel of sports writers
and sportscasters.' Southern Cal
had 21 firsts a week ago.
Ohio State, 31-24 winners over
Illinois for its fifth straight, at-
tracted 12 firsts, compared to 15
last week. The Buckeyes will be
ahome to Michigan State, No.
16, Saturday.
Kansas mide Iowa State. its
sixth straight victim, 46-25 and
picked up six firsts to hold third
place ahead of Penn State, which
drew one first place ballot after
bombing Boston College 29-0 for
its fifth in a row.
The point total, based on 20 for
first and graduated scale down
to one point for 15th place gave
Southern California a 64-point
lead over Ohio State, 786-722. A
week ago they led by only 16
points. Kansas was a strong third
with 686 and Penn State a solid
fourth with 592.
The major casualty of the week-
end was Notre Dame,, upset by'
Michigan State, 21-17, and drop-
ped all the way ;from No. 5to
No.;12. .
Tennesse, Purdue and Georgia
all moved up a peg to take over
fifth, sixth and seventh places.
Tennessee had an off day. Purdue
downed Iowa 44-14 and Georgia
beat Kentucky 35-14.
Both Miami, Fla. and Syracuse,
who had been No. 9 and. No. 10,
were knocked off and dropped out
of the top 20. Miami lost to Au-
burn 31-6 and Syracuse was run
over by California 43-0.,
California, Michigan and Mis-
souri all moved into the first 10.
A California thumped Syracuse,
Michigan clobbered Minnesota
35-20 and Missouri ran over Kan-
sas State 56-20.
Newcomers to the top 20 were
Southern Methodist, which ad-
vanced to No. 13 by drubbing Tex-
as Tech 39-18; Houston, which be-
came No. 15 after beating Missis-
sippi 29-7; Michigan State, No.
16 on its upset of Notre Dame;
and Ohio University which became
No. 19 after rolling over Dayton
42-12 for its sixth straight.

'A little Gopher please, gently Browned'

-Daily-Andy Sacks
WOLVERINE DEFENSIVE BACK BRIAN HEALY (24) intercepts an errant Gopher aerial Saturday
afternoon at Michigan Stadium. Teammate Tom Curtis (25), who currently leads the Big Ten in
interceptions, begins to lead the blocking for Healy. Michigan's alert defensive play is one of the
contributing factors in the team's rise to ninth place in the country.
PRO FOOTBALL:
GreenBayea pCowboys live, 28-7

By ROBIN WRIGHT
Most people thought of Satur-
day's football game as part of
homecoming, but to the Minne-
sota Gophers, the game belonged
to Dennis Brown.
As Coach Murray Warmath la-
mented after the game, "Brown
killed us."
Playing in just over half of the
daily,

game, Brown recorded two touch-
downs on passes, ran for 45 yards
and completed 11 of 20 throws for
152 yards.
The only bad thing Brown did
during the game was to knock the
Wolverine water canteen over.
when he was pushed out of
bounds.
Warmath went on to explain,
"Brown was the big player. His
quick passes were tremendous. I've
never seen anyone better than
Brown on those quick passes. And
this is what chopped us up.
"Brown was more troublesome
than Johnson this game. Every
ball that went up in the air was
caught. I've never seen ,a better1
game from a quarterback."
Brown modestly disagreed. "I'm
glad we won, but as far as my per-
sonal performance, it was not a
great day.
"I could have done better. For-
ty-five yards rushing is n6t thatj
respectable, although 152 yards
passing is not too bad. I consider
it a good game when I make more1
than 200 yards in total offense.
In fact, Brown was more com-
plimentary of sophomore Don
Moorehead, who was in action just1

half, the Gophere could only once
get as far as the Michigan 45,
while, during the same time, the
Wolverines were able to get on the
scoreboard six times.
Against the Michigan second
and third teams in the second
half Minnesota was more success-
ful. Inside the Michigan 50 five
different times, Minnesota went
on to score three of those times.
After an exciting first half of
two Brown touchdowns, two John-
son touchdowns, two "where-did-
he-learn-to-do-that" Killian field-
goals, a pair of interceptions and
a general tromping of the meaty
rodents from Minnesota, Elliott
decided to let up the second half.
So, the only real excitement in
the second half was Curtis' fifth
interception of the year, a McCoy
interception and a Big Ten record
tying fieldgoal by Killian.
But despite clearing the bench
of 61 players to avoid "laying -it
on" Warmath's Gophers, Bump's
boys were able to out-play them
53-39.
Adding that\ Michigan is not
succumbing to the disease ofsover-
confidence, Brown pointed out
that during the halftime, when
Michigan was 30-0 ahead in points
and everything in performance,
"we were happy, but a little wary
of a comeback.
"The team knew that if we
could score 30 points in a half,
that it was possible for Minnesota
to do it too.We knew we couldn't
let down or be over-confident, so
we made like it was a 0-0 game.

Starr, who missed last week'sI
game with a pulled muscle, rallied
the Packers from a 10-7 halftime
deficit with perfectly timed passes
as the Cotton Bowl crowd of
74,604 groaned.
He connepted on passes of threeI
and 32 yards to tight end Mary
Fleming and found Boyd Dowler
on a five-yard scoring throw in
the second half surge before a na-
tional television audience. In the
second quarter, he nailed Carroll
Dale with a perfect 26-yard touch-
down throw.
It was a bitter loss for Dallas,
which has, never beaten Green
Bay in a regular season or play-
off game. Twice Dallas has failed
in the final seconds,. in the NFL
title games against the Packers.

BULLETIN
Northwestern's Mark Proskine
is out for the season, and pos-
sibly his career, it was reported
late last night. The Wildcat
defensive end, mentioned this
season for possible; All Big Ten
honors, suffered a hairline
fracture of his lower leg. Going
into last week's game with Wis-
consin, he had been second on
the Wildcat squad in tackles,
assisting on 37 while taking on
18 alone.

over a quarter, but managed to
gain 33 yards rushing and 49 yards
passing.
"Moorehead is going to be All-
American material in the next- two
years. He's got everything it takes.
He's 6'3", weight 203 and has a
strong running and passing at-
tack."
But Coach Bump Elliott agreed
with Warmath. "Brown had a fine
day. The offense clicked real well
-we felt we had to throw to win,
and it certainly worked. The of-
fensive team played as well as I've
seen them play. And defensively,
we again came up with thedstrong
plays that put us in good posi-
tion."
Offensively, Michigan broke a
Big Ten record by completing 107
plays. Illinois set the previous rec-

And Elliott wasn't kidding about
the "strong plays" defensively
either. Minnesota, managed to get
inside Michigan territory only six
times the entire gamey In the first
