One game does not make a
season. But for the Michigan
freshmen football team two
games do comprise their entire
schedule, and the second and
final game will be played at
Notre Dame this afternoon
against the Fighting Irish.
The frosh, losers of their first
game to Michigan State 23-21
three weeks ago will seek to
even their season's record with
a win against the Irish, losers
of both their games, to Ten-
nessee and Michigan State.
Freshman coach Louie Lee
wasn't disappointed by his
team's performance in the MSU
game and expects better things
in the game today.
Lee doesn't expect as m:,ny
mistakes as were made in the
MSU game since his players

now have one game's experi-
ence. However, the recent good
fortunes of the varsity have
been detrimental to the fresh-
men's cause. With the varsity
keying for the Rose Bowl, the
freshmen m u s t concentrate
their practice time with the 'a.-
sity, and can't spend mucn time.
in preparation for their own
Lee will be making 'hree ma -
jor changes in the starting line-
ups today with two of the
changes in the offensive back-
Larry Cipa, who saw *some ac-
tion in the second half against
the Spartans, will start at quar-
terback in place of John Mc-
Bride. Cipa has looked better
in practice and Lee hopes Lo
use_ him all the way against the
Irish. If replacements are called
for, Lee has both McBride and
John Daniels available.

The backfield will be arraiged
in a straight-T so the fresh-
men's two fine running hacks
"Cowboy" Walker, and Randy
Logan can both be utilized.
Walker led the Wolverines in
their first game with 89 yards
gained and 'provided the fresh-
men with most of thir offense.
Logan will be starting in place
of Ted Kennedy who played as
a wingback in the opening m pw
Logan will generally play as a
running half but will occasion-
ally shift to flanker or win(,
back. He saw limited action on
,offense in the first game but
managed to gain 28 yards in :ix
carries w h i1 e subbing for
Tom Kee will start again at
fullback and should see more
action than in the first game
when he only carried eight
times. Trevor Mathews. a speedy



all-pu pose back will be used
more often as a wide receivcir
especially on plays where a l2ass
is not expected.
Lee's offense pattern for the
game calls for more passing. he
is hoping to establish a more
successful aerial game tio n
against MSU where only Live
passes were completed for 4t?
On defense Lee will be mak-
ing only one change in his
starting lineup, and'that cut of
necessity. S t a r t i n g defen;ive
tackle, Tony Smith is injured
and will be replaced by Bill
Hart, Tom Poplawski, and Tons
Coyle. The three replacements
are all starters on the offeisie'
line, and will split the job, with
Hart starting.
Greg Ellis, linebacker, Clint
Spearnan, defensive end, and
Logan in the defensive backfield
were all praised for their work

against Michigan State and
should anchor the defense again.
With Logan starting on offense,
however. Lee will rest him at
times, with Don Eaton spelling
him at defensive back.
Although Notre Dame has
inlayed two games, Lee doesn't
know much about them. He ex-
pects their defense to look like
the Irish varsity with a 4-3 set-

pointed to as a real threat is.

Irish offense runs out of many
formations and should provide

So, this afternoon while the
varsity battles Iowa in an at-
tempt to clinch a Rose Bowl
trip, the "Baby Blue" show off
Michigan's team of the future
in a season-ending duel with
Notre Dame.

Top grid teams battle to gain bowl berths

The officials of the various bowl
contests around the nation will get
a final chance to look over the
teams who most likely will get the
invitations on Monday, November
17. Certain teams like Penn State
and Tennessee will almost positiv-
ely get at least one bowl bid and
maybe more.
But what about teams like
Georgia, Auburn, LSU, Nebraska
and others who know they all are
good enough to get a berth but'
also know there are only a certain
number that could play in these
post-season classics. Rest assured
that these teams ,will go into to-
day's games with the knowledge
that those officials will be watch-
ing their every move with a close

be rolling to another undefeated

winning streak to 27 as they face
the University of Maryland. Their
current string is the longest of
any major college since the Soon-
ers of Oklahoma won 48 straignt
games from 1953 to 1957,
Penn State seems to be a primey
prospect for the Cotton Bowl, but
on Monday they most likely will
also get invitations from the Su-
gar and Orange Bowls. This is one,
decision you have to make when
you go 27 games without a defeat,
but you must admit, it is a pleas-G
ant one.
The other college which mo.it
probably will be a major prospect
to go to the Cotton Bowl will beE

meet Iowa State University, who
should pose no real threat of up-,

The naming of the host team
will have to wait until Texas meets
Arkansas on December 6th to de-

who is ranked two in the nation
will face Texas Christian and the
Razorbacks, who are fourth, will
meet SMU. It is very possible that
even the loser of that important
clash on December 6th will get the
opportunity to go to a bowl game,

post-season contest, by the score
of 27-10. Who were they? If you
haven't guessed by now, let it Le
known that it was the Fighting
Irish of Notre Dame.
Once again, after 44 years, the
mighty Irish may gain a b o w 1
berth. They have compiled a 6-1-1
record this year and well deserve
the,opportunity to go.
Last week, Notre Dame relhed
over the Panthers of Pittsburgh
47-7 and tonight the nation will
have the chance to watch the Ir-
ish play against the Ramblin'
Wreck of Georgia Tech. The game
will be played on national tele-
vision starting at 9:30 p.m.
The Volunteers of Tennessee
will face the Rebels from Missis-
sippi as they will try to win their
eighth straight against their sec-
ond touak opponent in as many
weeks. Last week, the Vols beat a
stubborn South Carolina team 29-
14 and the Rebels shouldn't be
much easier. It is possible that
Tennessee will go to the Orange
Bowl but the officials of the Cot-
ton Bowl have not as yet given up
hope in their attempt of luring the

The University of Kansas will

to battle the Sooneis of Oklahoma
who still h<'vye a very -(,od shot
of getting a bowl berth. The lead-
ing offensive star of the Sooners,
Steve Owens, will go into this con-
test with 990 total yards rushing,
which put him fourth in the rac-
for the leadership in ushing in
the nation. If he remains healthy
for the entire game he -hould
easily go over the 1 000 vnrd mv'k
and close in on the leader. Clar-
ence Davis of Southern Califor.ia.

game, the Cornhuskers of Ne~

braska will go to Manhattan, Kan-
sas to battle Kansas State.
Kansas State after coming off
their t_ emendous victory over Ok-
lahoma three weeks ago, have lost
two straight to Missouri and Ok-
lahoma State last week. Nebraska,
on the other hand is tied with
Missonri for the conference lead
and the two will probably decide
the championship when they meet
next week.

Ruggers try
Irish fire
The Michigan Blues will engage
in the usual spirited rugby clash
with the Fighting Irish at South
Bend today. The game will be part
of a doubleheader as the Michi-
Ran-Notre Dame freshman foot-
ball game %vlll follow.
The Blues are expected to be
rather weak today as many of
their players have invaded the na-
tion's capital on more pressing
matters. Head coach Dr. John
Robson explained, "We won't be
as strong as we would like. At
least three starters will be missing
from .the starting line-up. Robson
added that the team is actually
a modified "B" team, "and the
Gold's aren't that strong anyway."
Notre Dame is a fine experienced
team. They are very close-knit and
work as a team exceptionally well.
The Irish style will definitely pre-
sent a problem.
,obson noted that "the Irish are
a tough team to beat. They fire-
up in the final minutes and always
come on strong."
Michigan ran into this problem
before. In their last two meetings
they held leads into the final min-
utes when Notre Dame put on their
charge and came out with victories
in both encounters.
