EVANSTON, Ill. RP) -- Soph-
omore quarterback Bill Triplett
although used sparingly, scored
three touchdowns and passed for
a fourth yesterday to guide Mich-
igan State to'a 31-,.4 victory over
Northwestern in a Big Ten foot-
The triumph was the second in
seven conference games for the
Spartans who ended the season
with a 5-5 mark compared to
Northwestern's lowly 1-9.
On an apparently sentimental
gesture, MSU Coach Duffy Daugh-
terty started senior Bill Feraco at
quarterback. Twice under Feraco,
the Spartan failed to make a first
down. In came Triplett to lead a
76-yard drive capped a 13-yard
touchdown pass to Charlie Wede-
meyer to give MSU a 7-0 lead.

plays later Triplett bulled across
the goal for a 14-0 lead.
The Spartans then -surprised
Northwestern by recovering an
onside kick on the Wildcat 46.
A Triplett to Al Brenner pass for
35 yards helped set up another
touchdown plunge by Triplett.
Gordon Longmire, a n o t h e r

Triplett came back along

then left the game for good.
Early in the fourth quarter,

Over 11,500 Michigan partisans
without either the bread or the
inclination to journey to Colum-
bus flocked to the All-Events
Building yesterday afternoon to
watch the epic disaster on closed-
The reception on both of the
large screens set at opposite cor-
ners of the basketball court was
certainly adequate, but what they
recepted certainly wasn't.
In fact, the camera work dis-
played by the closed-circuit crew
in Ohio Stadium was compared
by one disgruntled Wolverine fan
to "Spiro Agnew's speech-writers
playing the accordion with their
toes while watching the Lawrence
Welk Show through a fishbowl."
It was that confusing.
Perhaps the high point of the
cameramen's afternoon was not
the 192nd time they couldn't fig-
ure out where the ball was, but
rather when the announcer intro-
duced the field judge. and the
camera played carefully over a!
guy dressed up like a chestnut. x
Some of the problem apparent-'
ly arose from the- fact that the vis-E
ual broadcast was not synced
with the audio, so nobody knew
what the other was doing. Still,
it was fun to look at Jim Otis
running like hell for a touchdown
when he didn't have the ball.
The crowd was very enthusiastic
from the beginning until the mid-
dle of the fourth quarter or so.
They cheered heartily, sang "The'
Victors" to a hundred different
drummers, and groused about
their team's poor showing.
But by the time Ohio S t a t e
piled up its 30-point lead, t h e
people sank into a sort of rest-
less sleep. At 50-14 they started
leaving in droves.
