wide, and then Ward went off on

one of his "Scramble Play" pat-
terns again. This time he went
left . . . and then back . . . and
back ... and back . .. And then he
coolly flipped a floater to Rick
Sygar, who seemed all alone on
the other side of the field.
Not quite!
. When defensive end Dick Tate
saw that 'pass coming, along with
everyone else in the place, he must
94 have started drooling. He made a
bee-line for Sygar, who was inno-
cently concentrating on a ball
which seemed to be taking a slow
boat on the local line. The pass
was like the Wells Fargo .. . com-
ing up in stages.

After a pair of runs and another
pass to Clancy brought the ball to
Illinois' 46, Gabler had to do some
scrambling of hiso wn. But while
he was scrambling he was look-
ing. . . and Steve Smith was wait-
ing, very alone.
Carl Ward was downfield with
Dickie Kee, the only defender on
Smith's route, having a staring
contest while waiting for the Blue
end's arrival. At the last second
Ward couldn't get enough body inC
Kee's way, and Smith was knock-
ed off balance and out of bounds
on the 15 with a 31-yard gain.
Gabler Fake
On the next play Gabler roll-
ed right and faked the defensive
end so flatfooted that the poor
guy seemed to move dazedly out'
of the way by request. From the
seven, Ward seemed to go through
a tackle hole almost before the
snap to make it first and 10 on
the one.
Then the halfback went up high
and away again for his second
score of the day.
At this point some fellow they
called "Rootie Kazoo" started to
play songs in place of Michigan's
Marching Band from up in the
cloud-covered part of the grand-
stands. Besides The Victors and
the Illinois Fight Song, he poured'

The Blue put on the finishing
touches with a 70-yard drive to
open the second half. Steve Smith
fell on a squiggler of a kick-off
at the 30.
Sweep Wide
Gabler started off with a pow-
er sweep to the right for 13 yards
and Ward and Sygar spent four
plays reaching Illinois' 32. Fish-
er finally got into the action at
this point, and cracked up the
middle for five more.
After Gabler had to sneak to
the 21 on a fourth and one sit-
uation, Ernie Sharpe, replacing
Ward for the play, ripped through
left tackle to the 13 and then
the 10. Gabler followed with a
left-right fake to Fisher and
hand-off to Sygar, but two-fum-
ble recoveries later found himself
on the four with another fourth
down and goal to go setting.
Gabler was equal to it. After
another fake to his fullback going
strong, he rolled left and faked a
lateral to Ward. This one was so
well timed that a defending end
was left with his eyes popping as
he searched for the pigskin. The
quaterback then slid through the
vacated end spot for the final
score of the afternoon.
Extra Point
On the extra point attempt the
hike was out of anyone's range
and not even a Sygar to Ward
pass could get results, although
at this point many in the stands
were expecting Ward to go over
and not two, but six points for
it.
It was defense the rest of the
way, with plenty of experience for
second-stringers on offense. The
defense was good.
Scene like Mielke droping Cus-
tardo for a loss were not uncom-
mon, as the Illinois QB was forced
to the air more often than was de-
sireable to keep any balance in
his attack.
Best Game
Frank Nunley had one of his
finest games. Typical of some of
his individual efforts was a tackle
of Custardo on a power sweep
where he had to jump over two
blockers to get to him.

were making a beautiful stop on
Fisher off tackle, Ward took a
pitch down to the 11 and three
plays later took a swan dive to
the two-foot line, four inches
short of a first down.
With a fourth and what was
left, Michigan went for it .

Illini Dissolve
You have never seen a huge
orange "Block I" dissolve into
splotches of green, white and
black so fast in your life. Mich-
igan's "Block M" would drown'
first! (Right?!)
With action resumed, the Wol
verin es immediately got called
for clipping, but countered with a
pass to a wide open Sygar on the
seven. After Ward had dribbled
wide right for no gain, Michigan
was stopped and Sygar split the
uprights with 15 seconds left in

RICK SYGAR (18) DISPLAYS his offensive style that has earned him the right to go both ways
since the injury to Jim Detwiler. Don Bailey (55), Charlie Kines (78), and Henry Hanna, (90) opened
up this hole for Sygar, while a fake from Wally Gabler to Dave Fisher drew the attention of Illinois
linebacker Bill Harper (33) long enough for Sygar to rush through for a sizable gain.
