The Michigan offense machine, led by two long touch-
down runs by tailback Billie Taylor, put on an awesome 35
point first half display to crunch Wisconsin yesterday 35-7.
Taylor's runs, for 37 and 49 yards, both came in the first
quarter and sparked the Wolverine attack which ran over
the helpless Badgers for 256 yards in the first half. Michigan's
defense had little trouble with Wisconsin in that stanza,
allowing 88 yards and no points.
The Wolverines are now 5-2 for the season and 3-1 in the Big
Ten. They kQpt their Rose Bowl aspirations alive while dousing Wis-
consin's fleeting hopes. The Badgers are now 2-2 in the Conference.
The game was played almost entirely in a constant downpour.
Players on both sides had various troubles with the slippery Tartan
Turf which resembled a water-soaked sponge on the sidelines.
The Wolverines failed to move the first two times they got the
ball but the Badger's didn't either and through the two exchanges of
punts Michigan got the ball on the Wisconsin 38.
Fullback Garvie Craw plunged off left tackle for a yard. Then
Taylor took a handoff from Don Moorhead on a trap play off right
tackle, shrugged off a Wisconsin line-backer and sprinted 37 yards
for the score. Frank Titas converted the extra point, the first of his
five perfect kicks of the afternoon.
Wisconsin's heralded Greg "Grape Juice" Johnson turned sour
on the ensuing kick-off, fumbling away the football to Michigan
line-backer Ed Moore on the Badger 29.
But in a rare moment of the game, the Badger defense stiffened,
and aided by a dropped pass by Mike Hankwitz stopped the Wolverines
on the 26. Tim Killian's attempted field goal from the Badger 34 went
wide to right.
The Wolverine defense held the meager Badger attack, as they
did all afternoon and two plays after the Wolverines got the ball on
the ensuing punt, Taylor was off again. This time it was a normal
off tackle play which Taylor turned into a 49-yard romp, punctuated
by three broken tackles.
The touchdown was Taylor's fifth in two games and must have

19 plays and 9 minutes. Garvie Craw was given the priviledge of the
touchdown from the one.
The long TD march must have seemed too slow to Barry Pierson,
Michigan's defensive halfback. So when the Badgers were forced
to punt Pierson took the ball on the Michigan 49 and ran straight
down the middle of the field toward the goal line.
