The Big Ten athletic directors
have voted that the winner of the
Michigan-Ohio S t a t e football
game Saturday get an automatic
invitation to play in the Rose
Bowl, Commissioner Bill Reed said
yesterday.
The athletic directors are gen-
erally requested to vote for "the
most representative team," but
have decided this year to make
Saturday's winner the automatic
choice.
Should there be a tie, Reed said,
then there will be another vote
to select the bowl team. "I will
take it (the vote) over the tele-

phone as fast as possible on Satur-
day night," Reed added.
Normally, when Big Ten teams
tie for the right to go to the Rose
Bowl, the team which has gone
last is eliminated. In this event,
it is expected that Ohio State
would win the vote, since Michi-
gan represented the conference
in 1964 when they defeated Ore-
gon State, 34-7, in the Rose Bowl.
Ohio State captured the Big Ten
crown in 1961, but their faculty
voted against the journey. Be-
cause of this, the Buckeyes hav-
en't played in the Rose Bowl since
1957.
