For Elliott, the accomplish-
ment was a lot more t h a n a
simple interception and touch-
down. Middle guard Henry Hill
analyzed the 'happening' in the
lockerroom after the game: "We
were all ribbing Bruce before
the game about how he was the
home town boy who was going
to show the folks how good he
is. And man, he did."
Elliott grew up here in Cham-
paign while his father, Pete El-
liott, was managing (quite suc-
cessfully) the Illini fortunes. He
was All-State in both football
and baseball at Champaign Cen-
tral High School and was
brought by his uncle Bump El-
liott to Michigan when his fa-
ther was "kicked out" of Illi-
nois for an alleged slush fund.
Elliott told his own story af-
ter the game.
"All my family and a lot of
my relatives are here today. I
really wanted to get a touch-
down, an interception or just
get something in this game. It
w a s something I've always

"My man was running a short
flag pattern, sort of a 45 degree
turn-out and he was running it
real shallow. I laid b a c k the
first two times he ran the pat-
tern because it was near the end
of the game and I thought they
would pass long.
"But the third time I figured
they were just going to try for
the short ones and I slipped up
"At first when I caught the
ball I thought I could make it
all the way down the right side-
line. Then I saw a whole bunch
of people there in front of me
and I was forced to cut inside.
"I kept running for the far
left corner but didn't think I
would make it. I heard Barry
(Pierson) yelling 'Bruce, Bruce'
and then he put a great block
on the guy nearest me. When I
found myself lying on my back
in the end zone I couldn't be-
lieve what had happened."
For his efforts, Elliott receiv-
ed the game ball fr'om his team-
mates and Coach Bo Schem-
bechler. Schembechler also add-
ed a few words of praise, "El-
liott's interception and run ex-
cited our guys more than any-
thing in the game. He's a great
kid, a good football player, and
a great competitor.
"He's right out of the old El-
Schembechler then turned to
the subject of his second string
quarterback, "Betts really look-
ed good, didn't he. He's a much
better quarterback than he
showed in the Wisconsin game.
I'm glad he got a chance to play
and show his stuff."
In all, Betts completed s i x
passes in nine attempts for 106
yards and two touchdowns. He
ran for another 51 yards in 9
carries, producing a third TD.
His total offense performance of
157 yards even beat Moorhead's
total by one yard.
After the game, Schembech-.
ler still evaded questions about
the Rose Bowl as he's done ever
since the loss to Michigan State.
To him, Iowa's win over Indiana
yesterday means the Hawkeyes
will be that much tougher to
beat next week.
"Iowa is a very dangerous ball
club," he said. "Right now we
have two tough games remain-
ing in Iowa and Ohio State. But
so does Purdue in Ohio State
and Indiana. An d Ohio State
has to play Purdue and us."
"So now I can't talk about
the Rose Bowl. Iowa comes
first." Glenn Doughty (22) strong-arms Illinoi

BLOOMINGTON -- Jerry Nel-
son blocked a third-period In-
diana punt yesterday to set up
Iova's vinning touchdown in a
28-17 victory that virtually killed
the racially-troubled Hoosier's
hopes of representing the Big Ten
in the Rose Bowl.
With the Hawkeyes trailing 14-
13, middle guard Nelson went
straight up the middle to smoth-
er the kick by John Isenbarger.
Dan McDonald recovered the
football on Indiana's 18-yard line
and tailback Dennis Green put
Iowa ahead four plays later with
a 5-yard touchdown run.
Green added another touch-
down, icing the game late in the
final period after linebacker Dave
Brooks intercepted a Harry Gonso
pass and returned it 23 yards to
the Indiana 5-yard line.
Indiana, its squad thinned out
at midweek by the departure of
10 protesting Negro players, had
taken the lead in the third period
mainly on the hard running of
Isenbarger. The Hoosier halfback
totaled 140 yards on 21 carries and
scored one touchdown.
Quarterback Larry Lawrence
accounted for two Iowa touch-
downs. He broke three tackles on
a first quarter 40-yard scoring
run and passed 19 yards to flank-
er Kerry Reardon fo' another
