EVANSTON, Ill - Sophomore
)ick Thornton passed for North-
vestern's longest aerial touchdown
n history in the third period and
hen ran and tossed for two more
cores in the fourth to wheel the

Wildcats to a stunning 21-0 rout
of Ohio State today.
A defensive struggle, in which
neither side could come within 18
yards of scoring, was broken open
by the 180-pound Thornton in the
last 90 seconds of the third period.

The former all-star prep fromf
Chicago, on the Northwestern 33,
passed to halfback Ron Burton.
The spiral snuggled into Burton's
arms on the Buckeye 35 and he
streaked diagonally to the first TD
with the Ohio defenders caught in
the backwash.
With only two minutes left,
Thornton stole Frank Kremblas'
pass and ran it back 29 yards to
the Ohio State 21. The Wildcats
moved it to the three from where
Thornton rifled a touchdown pass
to end Elbert Kimbrough. Thorn-
ton then passed to Burton for the
extra two points.
Badgers Edge Spartans
EAST LANSING - Wisconsin
clung doggedly to an early lead
and fought off an inspired Michi-
gan State second half comeback
for a 9-7 football victory here to-
Wisconsin clearly dominated the
first half, scoring on an 80-yard
drive and a field goal for a 9-0
intermission advantage..
But Michigan State thrilled a
homecoming crowd of. 71,000 and a
nation wide television audience
with a third period revival on an
87-yard scoring march.
The Spartan second stringers
put together the big push. Quarter-
back Mike Panitch, a former
starte demoted to a reserve role,
passed the last seven yards to
Sammy Williams in the end zone.
Williams kicked the point.
Dale Hackbart, a talented pass-
ing and plunging quarterback,
movedWisconsin on its scoring
surge in the second period. A 36-
yard pass completion to Dave
Kocuerek which carried to the one
was the key play. Hackbart
sneaked in from there.
Purdue Routs Illinois
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue's
Boilermakers practically rubbed
out Illinois' Big Ten title chances
today 31-8, scoring two touch-
downs on the ground and two by
air. Illini fumbles set up three
of them.
Purdue's Skip Ohl, sophomore
guard from Champaign, Ill., added
to the Illini humiliation by kicking
two field goals for a modern Big
Ten record.
It seemed improbable, but the
Big Ten record book showed no
player had kicked over one field
goal in a single game since the
arbitrary beginning of the modern
era in 1939.

Indiana Scores Upset
ana's line held stonewall-steady
and the Hoosiers drove the length
of a soggy field in the third quarter
to beat Minnesota 6-0 today.
It was the underrated Hoosiers'
third football victory of the season
but their first in Big Ten compe-
tition in two years. The loss was
the Gophers' sixth straight of the
season and their ninth in succes-
Ted Smith scored the Indiana
touchdown on a one-yard plunge
after he and Vic Jones had lugged
the ball all the way from Indiana's
12 yard line.

TIE SCORE (FOR A WHILE)-Michigan's Brad Myers (17) eludes Hugh Drake's diving tackle
and cuts in to take advantage of George Genyk's block on Don Horn and score a two-point extra
point to momentarily tie the game in the third quarter, at 14-14. Iowa later broke the game wide
open and took a 37-14 victory.
Grid Victory Fulfills Coach's Dream

was sparked by Ptacek's fine pass-
ing to Harper, Fred Julian and
Bob Johnson.
Top Passing Average
Michigan completed 13 passes
out of 25 attempts for better than
a .500 average. Ptacek threw all
of the complete ones, while Harper
and Stan Noskin each attempted
a few.
The second Michigan touchdown
came on the first drive of the;
second half, as the Wolverines
started from their own 21 and
moved the ball in 14 plays to pay-
dirt. Harper's running and Ptacek's
passing were again the key, with
the biggest gain a 21-yard pass
play from the senior quarterback
to Bob Johnson.
Ptacek scored the market on a
sneak from the one, and Brad
Myer3 tied the game as he drove
over for the two extra points.
However, the Wolverines then ran
out of steam.
Defenses Toughen
Iowa stiffened on defense, and
began to show the brilliant offense
that had marked them as the top
gaining team in the Conference.
However, the Hawkeyes generally
relied on a fast ground game, and
All-American quarterback candi-
date Randy Duncan did little of
the passing that has gained him
The five Iowa touchdowns were
all scored by the speedy halfbacks.
Flemming was the hero, scoring
the first TD of the day on a 72-
yard punt return in the first quar-
ter, and the last Hawk marker on
a 61-yard off-tackle sprint in the
last period.
Bob Jeter, another second-string
halfback, also scored two Iowa
touchdowns. He supplied the tie
breaker in the third quarter on a
three-yard sprint around end on
the first play after a Michigan
Jeter Scores
Noskin had faded back to pass
from the {Michigan 19-yard line
when Hawkeye guard Hugh Drake
hit him, and end Jeff Langston
recovered the fumble on the three.
Jeter's other score came soon
after in the fourth quarter, and
gave the Hawks a safe 29-14 lead.

This score, coming on a 24-yard
end sweep, was the icing on the
Hawkeyes' longest drive of the
clay. They marched from their six
yard line to paydirt in only nine
The other Iowa TD was scored
by Ray Jauch, the Big Ten's lead-
ing ruslhr up to this week, on a
74-yard end run in the second
quarter. Bob Prescott kicked for
Iowa's first three extra points, and
the Hawkeyes scored on passes to
end Curt Merz for the two two-
pointers. Fullback John Nocera
and Duncan did the passing on
the conversions.
Hawkeyes Add Speed
The Iowa speed proved a worse
problem than pass defense, which
was the usual Michigan plague in
earlier games. Evashevski felt that
the Wolverines played a real
"tough" game. "I was very proud
of my Alma Mater," he said."but
it's great to know that I have
finally beaten them."
There were a number of times
when just a few inches would have
made a difference in the game.
Early in the second Ptacek over-
threw Michigan's big end Gary
Prahst by inches when Prahst was
behind the Iowa secondary.
Line Rugged
The Michigan line played rugged
balU for the first three quarters,
but wasn'teable to contain the
Hawkeyes near the game's end.
The blocking was strong on occa-
sion, and permitted the Michigan
backs to gain 116 yards, but Pta-
cek had to rely on passing for
most of the game. Even then, he
and Noskin seldom had as much
time as they needed, and were
often dumped for losses.
Again the Wolverines escaped a
game without a serious injury.
End Walt Johnson hurt his knee,
and the extent of the injury isn't
yet known. However, it doesn't
appear too serious.
The Wolverines have now fallen
to seventh place in the Big Ten
race. They will have a chance to
move up the ladder in the next
few weeks, when they meet Illi-
nois, Indiana and Ohio State. It
is quite certain that they won't
meet another team like Iowa this
year. There are no others,



The long trip home from Ann
Arbor to Iowa City will be a happy
one for the Iowa Hawkeyes for the
first time in 34 years.
Their victory over Michigan rep-
resented the end of an era and
also the fulfillment of a coach's
End of Era
The era was the fantastic domi-
nation that the Wolverines have
held over Iowa. The coach's dream
was the ambition of Coach Forest
Evashevski to win over his alma.
mater after years of frustration.
Iowa won the toss and perhaps
this was a sign of things to come.
Take Early Lead
Iowa rolled to a 14-0 lead in the
second quarter; Michigan, show-
ing fighting spirit and gameness,
came back to tie the score at the
beginning of the second half. Eva-
shevski, who had, seen five games
in which his team had blown early
leads, later commented, "I thought
when Michigan came back with 14
points, it was going to be a repeat
As the game ended, jubilant
players hoisted Evashevski to their
shoulders and carried him off the
field. There, Evy met the defeated

mentor, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan,
his old friend and arch-rival. The
two coaches congratulated each
other and walked off the field
together, arms around each other.
The Wolverine dressing room
was quiet; there was no moaning
or complaining, for the players
realized they had met a superior
squad. Oosterbaan said that his
team had played well.-
Across the tunnel, the Iowans
were rejoicing. The players voted'
the game ball to their coach, and
he proudly announced, "This one
goes to me; I'm not letting go of'
it. There's a waiting spot in my
trophy case for this ball."
Praise Michigan
He added, "Michigan was a
whale of a fighting team, and I'm
proud of my alma mater. We just
had too much depth for them."
The talk turned to the Rose
Bowl, and the players seemed fair-
ly confident of their chances of
representing the Big Ten. Evashev-
ski, when asked to rate this ball
club with his '56 Rose Bowl team
stated, "This team compares fa-
vorably on offense nut seems to be
a bit weaker derensively."
He concluded, "I'm proud of all
my boys."

Rose Bowl invitation.
Kapp hdd guided California to a'
touchdown the first time California

other drive when center Doug Ba-
shoror of Oregon State boldly
stormed through the line and stole
the ball as Kapp was trying a
pitchout. Bashoror lumbered 33
yards untouched to a touchdown.I

the fading seconds.
The Panthers marched to the
