Sports Editor
Ron Johnson shattered ten rushing records to single-
handedly demolish Wisconsin 34-9 in a downpour yesterday
and set up a "Dream Game" showdown with Big Ten co-
leader Ohio State in Columbus next Saturday.
Johnson racked up five touchdowns and gathered 347
yards in 31 attempts to turn a two-point first-half deficit
into a one-man runaway in the third quarter.
It was Michigan's eighth straight win, and combined
with Ohio State's 33-27 squeaker over Iowa, sets the stage for
next week's titanic struggle which will determine the Big
Ten championship and a trip to the 1969 Rose Bowl in Pasa-
dena, California.
Johnson's touchdowns came on explosive spurts of 35, 67,
one, 60, and 50 yards as he raked Wisconsin's defense for the
highest rushing and scoring totals in Big Ten football his-
tory. He was taken out of the game early in the fourth quar-
Michigan Head Coach Bump Elliott said "Johnson gave
the greatest one-man performance I have ever seen. He should
definitely be rated an All-American football player."
All in all, Johnson managed to eclipse three Big Ten
single game marks, three Michigan single game records, three
Michigan season totals and one team career record.
Johnson's new Michigan and Big Ten single game marks:
0 Most Points . . . 30
* Most Touchdowns . . . 5
! Most Yards Rushing . . . 347
Johnson's new Michigan season records:
*RushingAttempts .. . 234
*Most Yards Rushing . . . 1300
0 Most Touchdowns . . . 17
Johnson's new Michigan career record:
f Most Yards Rushing . . . 2349
(Johnson broke the career mark for rushing attempts last
week against Illinois. He now has 466.)
Also, the 6'1", 200-pound bruiser is within 70 yards of Jim
wGrabowski's single season rushing m a r k of 996, and two
touchdowns away from Leroy Keyes' record of 15.
Asked what his 'secret' was in the locker room, Johnson
replied: "There is none. You're born with it . . . God gives
it to you.
"The more I carry the ball the, better I feel," he continued.
"This is a great football team to play on. We've come a longf
sway this season, and you can be sure we'll be ready for Ohio
State next Saturday."
In the first quarter, Johnson slashed over left tackle for
46 yards in his initial two carries and Michigan had a 7-0 lead
after two minutes of play.
The normally-porous Badger defense then pulled togeth-
er and bottled up the Wolverine attack for the remainder of
the half.
Wisconsin managed to score 'a touchdown and a field
goal on fresh plays to take a 9-7 halftime margin to theC

RON JOHNSON, greatest Michigan halfback since Torm Harmon, breaks the last tackle on the way to his fifth touchdown of yesterday
afternoon. The score broke the modern Big Ten single game record, one of the many marks shattered by the big halfback. Johnson was
responsible for all of Michigan's scoring, an awesome display of running prowess that could well make Johnson an All-American.

Mlynar was one of the origina-

Later he came under heavy at-
