Big Ten Teams Have Impressive Day
By The Associated Press
Who says the Big Ten is going
On a Saturday reminiscent of
past days of glory, Western con-
ference teams swept through eight
intersectional clashes with a six
win, two tie record.
In the only game matching
league teams, Illinois justified its
favorite's rating with a 17-6 vic-
tory over Indiana. And the game
doesn't count in the standings
due to the Hoosier's conference
Recording wins were Michigan,
Northwestern, Minnesota, Wiscon-
sin, Ohio State and Iowa. Michi-
gan State was held to a 7-7 tie
at Pittsburgh and Purdue came
from behind twice to deadlock
Illinois received a stellar per-
formance from 5-8 quarterback
Johnnie Easterbrook in opening
its campaign on a winning note.
Easterbrook scored twice himself
and completed a 52-yard pass to
set up a third-period field goal.
The Illini fell behind 6-0 when
the Hoosiers drove 74 yards in 12
plays the first time it gained pos-
session. But Easterbrook brought
the home squad back with a four-
yard run in the first period. Gerry
Wood's conversion made it 7-6.
In the third quarter Wood
added a 25-yard field goal and
Easterbrook capped the scoring
with an 18-yard dash in period
Michigan State, rated with the
Illini as the loop's top team,
needed a freak pass play to sal-
vage its tie at Pitt.
The home squad counted with
two minutes remaining in the first
half on quarterback Dave Kraus'
six-yard pass to end Mike Ditka.
Then, with only five seconds
remaining in the period, Spartan
quarterback Tom Wilson lofted a
long aerial to end Jason Harness.
Pittsburgh's Ed Sharockman de-
flected the ball into Harness'
hands, and the latter went all
the way to complete a 66-yard
play. Art Brandstatter kicked the
Tempers flared near the end of
the contest and erupted into a
fist fight which included several
members of both squads.
Northwestern, the first Big Ten
team ever to invade Oklahoma,
came off with a 19-3 decision.
LeAding the Wildcat attack was
fullback Mike Stock, who kicked
two field goals and picked up 86
yards in 12 carries. Northwest-
ern's two touchdowns, in the first
and fourth quarters, came on
passes by quarterback Dick Thorn-
Coach Woody Hayes' Ohio State
crew added some frills to their
"four yards and a cloud of dust"
offense and treated a capacity
home crowd to a 24-0 win over
Southern Methodist. The Buckeyes
converted two pass interceptions
and a fumble into scores. They
mixed their basic ground attacks
with the passing of quarterback
Tom Matte, who hit six times in
Defending conference champion
Wisconsin got its offense rolliig
in the second half for a 24-7 vic-
tory at Stanford. Sophomore sig-
nal caller Ron Miller passed for
three touchdowns and set up a
24-yard field goal. His scoring
heaves were to Ron Stanley
(twice) and Tob Anthony. Erv
Kuensh kicked the field goal and
added three conversions.
Halfback Larry Ferguson cracked
open a tight game by sprinting
85 yards for a fourth quarter score
is Iowa downed Oregon State.
22-12 at Iowa City. The visitors
had overcome a 9-0 deficit with
two second half touchdowns be-
fore Ferguson's run put the Hawk-
eyes out of reach.
Minnesota rolled up a 13-0 half-
time lead, then hung on to top
Nebraska, 26-14, at Nebraska. The
Gophers drove 49 and 64 yards to
score early, then capitalized on
a fumble and intercepted pass af-
ter the break.
And Purdue, featuring a sopho-
more-laden lineup, scored on, a.
28-yard pass from Bernie Allen
to Joe Harris with 2:58 remaining
to gain its tie with UCLA at
Lafayette. UCLA tailback Bill Kil-
mer was the game's individual
star, passing for three scores and
counting once himself.
