Sisinyak, a double letter winner,
has been used to spell Jim Byers,
John Hernstein and Rio in the
fullback slot.
'Sisinyak is a very consistent
player and has always been very
useful to the team in a supporting
role," noted backfield coach Bump
Good Spirit
Reviewing Sisinyak's past two
years of secondary spots on the
team Head Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan commented, "he has always
shown a great deal of spirit and
has worked hard at all positions
at which we have tried him."
In his junior year, the 195-lb.
fullback averaged 3.4 yards per
carry during the 141 minutes of
action he saw
Temporarily promoted, Sisinyak
worked with the starting backfield
as it emphasized passing during a
long workout. Michigan's three
working quarterbacks, Bob Ptacek,
Stan Noskin and John Spidel al-
ternated at the helm.
Byers Ready
Oosterbaan also announced that
fullback Jim Byers would be ready
for the Iowa game on Saturday.
Moved in to play center at the
beginning of the season, Byers

injured his knee and was sidelined,
supposedly for the entire season
"Byers has made an amazing
recovery and comeback," noted
Costerbaan. "He has worked out
consistently and should be in
shape for the Iowa game."
Back in uniform and working
out lightly was guard Tom Jobson,
who has been sidelined with a leg
injury. Tackle Don Deskins was
hampered by a slight leg injury in
yesterday's practice session, but
will be ready for a full-scale work-
out today.
LSU Heads
College Poll
fy The Amwiated Prey
Undefeated Louisiana State
moved from third to first, and
Iowa jumped from seventh to sec-
ond, in the Associated Press weekly
poll which saw the top ten college
teams undergo the biggest shuffle
of the season.
Last week's leaders, Army and
Ohio State, were only able to gar-
nish ties last weekend, and dropped
to third and fifth place, respective-
ly. Army tied Pittsburgh, 14-14,
while Wisconsin held Ohio State
to a 7-7 deadlock.
Iowa Second
Unbeaten Iowa moved to second
on the strength of their 26-20 win
over eighth-place Northwestern,
who dropped to eleventh this week.
Auburn, now fourth with a 4-0-1
record, gained a notch in the poll
by virtue of an easy 20-7 victory
over Maryland, while Mississippi
was the only team to maintain its
position of the previous week,
Bud Wilkinson's Oklahoma Soon-
ers are once again- inching their
way up the ladder as they ad-
vanced from ninth to seventh by
routing Kansas State, 40-6.
First Appearances
The eighth-, ninth-, and tenth-
place teams, Wisconsin, Colorado,
and Purdue, all made their flat
appearances in the poll this week.
Wisconsin has suffered one loss,
while both Colorado and Purdue
are unbeaten.
Texas, who held down fourth
place in last Week's Top Ten,
dropped twelve places to sixteenth,
as they wert maulfd by Rice, 34-7,
in one of the week's biggest upsets.

Who will stop the unbeaten
Baltimore Colts and the Cleveland'
This is the question on all lips
as the National Football League
season rapidly draws to its half-
w ay mark,
These two teams not only lead,
the Western and Eastern Divi-
sios, respectively, but also are
the top offensive clubs in th* NFL.
Colts Lead
The latest team statistics show
that Baltimore gained 390 yards,
Sunday in their 35-10 rout of the
Washington Redskins and now
lead both divisions of theNL
with 2,048 total yards gained.
However, Paul Brown's superb
football machine is only 25yards
behind Baltimore as Cleveland
has gained 1.311 yards rushing
and 712 passing.
Of the Browns' 1,311 rushing
yards, 815 have been gained by
Cleveland's great fullback, Jim
Brown, who seems destined to
break both the league's rushing
and scoring marks.
Needs 204
Brown only needs 204 yards in
seven games to break ex-Philadel-

phia great Steve Van Buren's rec-
ord of 1,146 yards gained rushing,
which was set in 1949.
Barring injuries, the Cleveland
star is almost sure to set a new
rushing mark as he has averaged
163 yards per game. Brown also
needs just five more touchdowns'
to set a season's scoring record of
Baltimore not only leads in of-
fense, as they have averaged al-
most 38 points a game, but also
has a rough defense. The Colts
have yielded but 3.7 yards per
rush to opponents, and are tied
with the Chicago Cards on pass
Final Ganes en Comet
Of the two, the Colts are faced
with the roughest remaining
schedule as their final four games
are against the tough coast teams,,
San Francisco and Los Angeles.
It was on the coast last season
where the Colts blew a golden op-
portunity for the 1957 title by
losing their last two games to the

49er's and Rams. Baltimore also
has one game against the Western
Division's second place Bears and
the Eastern Division's second
place Giants.
Willie Gallimore of the Bears
continues to hold down second
place in the scoring race with 54
points, while the Giants have the
top defense in either division as
they have allowed only 77 points
and 2.8 yards per rush.
Parim Leads
In individual passing. a new
leader, Vito (Babe) Parilli, has
emerged with 28 completions in
56 attempts for 557 yards and six
touchdowns. Parilli has averaged
9.95 yards per pass.
In other departments, end RA
Berry of the Colts still leads in
pass receiving with 27 catches for
453 yards; Redskin Sam Baker
has averaged 46 yards on 21
punts; while Philadelphia Fagle
Billy Wells tops punt returners
with an average of 12.5 yards on
11 returns.

SISINYAK PROMOTED--Gene Sisinyak, who has previously been
only a part-time fullback behind John Herrnstein and Tony Rio,
was moved up to the first team in practice yesterday.
