TEN SHOWDOWN:

wrong. The Hawkeyes have
I past Oregon State, North-
rn, and Michigan State, and
Bucks have handled SMU,
kern California and Illinois

on three successive Saturdays
without even working up a sweat.
Looking up at these masterful
performances, their gridiron tra-
dition, and their present person-
nel, both teams have the poten-
tial (if anyone has) to go through
the rugged Big Ten schedule un-
beaten.
Fast Backfield
Iowa boasts one of the fastest
backfields in football history, led
by Captain Jerry Mauren, with
support from their "flying fire-
plug" Joe Williams, and speedster
Larry Ferguson. In the three

games thus far, they have scored
on long runs five times, includ-
ing Ferguson's 85 yard sprint
against Oregon State, and Wil-
liams' 67 - yard game - winning
romp with a fumble last week at
Michigan State.
However the Buckeyes, while
lacking the overall speed of the
Hawks, have a deep, experienc-
ed set of backs built around line-
busting Bob Ferguson,
In the line there is little to
choose from between the two teams
as both possess the big, fast pow-
erful forwards so necessary in Big
Ten play.
Difference at Quarterback
The difference, if any, outside
of Iowa's superior speed, may lie
at quarterback. There Ohio boasts
their best running field general
since Les Horvath (1944) in senior
Tom Matte.
However, Coach Forest Evashev-
ski also has a running quarter-
back in junior Wil Hollis, with
the difference between the two
lying in the fact that Hollis is a
proven passer.
This colud mean that Ohio will
have to turn more and more to
their "four yards and a cloud of
dust" offense as the season pro-
gresses.
Use Long Gainer
In the first three games Ohio
has won with the long gainer,
but if the word leaks out that
Matte isn't as capable a passer
as Coach Woodie Hayes insists
he is, defensive alignments may
change, and the going may get a
little tougher.
It was just two years ago that
the Buckeyes ground the Hawks
into submission, 38-28, and the
year before that it was 17-13.
Iowa gained some revenge last
year with a 16-7 whipping admin-
istered to Ohio at Columbus, but.

SGC CANDIDACY

the memory of those two hard
fought losses still remain in Eva-
shevski's mind. Undoubtedly, he
would like nothing better than to
beat Ohio State and clinch the
Big Ten title (if it stacks up that
way) in his last season as head
coach.
In his seven previous tries, the
Hawkeyes have won three times,
and trail in the all-time series
with Ohio, 12 games to eight, with
two ending in ties.
Iowa, OSU
Top Offense
By The Associated Press
In team statistics, undefeated
Iowa and Ohio State areoff run-
ning and passing to the Big Ten
titles in those departments.
Iowa has averaged 312.5 yards
and 34.5 points in two Conference
games. The Buckeyes, having
played one League game, have a
stepping stone of 363 yards gained
and 34 points. The latter is also
second defensively, having yielded
only 233 yards to Illinois and 13
first downs.
Minnesota is first on defense,
after blanking Northwestern, and
holding them to 225 total yards.
Michigan has had the most
plays per game, 71, in one contest,
but Ohio State leads in average
yard a play with 6.37.
In his first Big Ten football
game, stellar sophomore quarter-
back Ron Miller of Wisconsin
grabbed the lead in conference
total offense and in passing.
As the Badgers spilled Purdue,
24-13, last Saturday, the aroit
Miller completed 12 of 23 passes
for 203 yards. He also carried the
ball 9 times for 39 yards, giving
him a pacesetting total of 242
yards.
Official conference statistics to-
day also credited another quar-
terback, Wilburn Hollis of Iowa's
tricky Hawkeyes, with the lead in
the rushing department. Hollis, in
two conference games, has carried
27 times for 150 yards. The best
rushing average belongs to still a
third Big Ten quarterback, Ohio
State's Tom Matte with 129 yards
in 13 rushes for a 9.9 mark in the
Buckeyes' 34-7 win over Illinois.
In scoring, Hollis and Carl
Charon, Michigan State fullback,
share the lead with 18 points each.
Wisconsin's great sophomore end,
Hugh Richter, leads in receptions,
snagging 7 Miller tosses Saturday.
Purdue's Bernie Allen, also a
quarterback, has the best punting
average. 42.3.

NOT TRACK, BUT FOOTBALL -- Glenn Davis, former Ohio
State track star and twice an Olympic Medal Winner, is now
playing football for the Detroit Lions. Davis is an end and was
recommended by Lion halfback and former Ohio Stater, Hlopalong
Cassidy.

Lions Count on Glenn Davis' Track Speed
As Breakaway Threat at Receiving Post

cond inning - the only run Ford
really needed, and a run Whitey
batted in himself - the Yankees
took off in the third. A hit batter,
Roger Mars' double, a two-run
single by Mickey Mantle and a
single by Yogi Berra sent Friend
to his second defeat.
Then , Bill Skowron tagged a
sacrifice fly against reliever Tom:
Cheney before Richardson made
it another rout.
RBI Record
The baby bomber, a 5'9" second
baseman who drove in 26 runs
all season, cracked a two-run
triple off the left f ield scoreboard
for the RBI record, later pushed
to 12 when he tripled for another
run in the seventh.
The old Series high of 10 was set,
by Berra is seven games in 1956
and matched by Ted Kluszewski
of the Chicago White Sox in last
year's six-game series with Los
Angeles.
Richardson also tied a record
with two triples - two of three
swatted by the Yankees, who also
hit four doubles. Somehow they
overlooked a home run for the.
first time in this set.
Johnny Blanchard, who admits

he "was resigned to being a bull-
pen catcher," rapped two of the
doubles off the right field screen
after replacing Howard behind
the plate. Blanchard's second shot
drove in the final Yankee run, off
Clem Labine in the eighth inning,
and pushed the AL champs' scor-
ing total to 46 runs in the six
games. It also was the Yankees'
78th hit so far. Both totals are
all-time records - making this
the most lopsided deadlock ever.
"It's Vernon Law to start to-
day," said Manager Danny Mur-
taugh, "and if I need another
pitcher early, it's anybody-in
eluding Elroy Face.
"We've got to stay close. The
ball games we've been in, we've
won."
That's the way the Pittsburgh
Pirates go into the payoff seventh
game of the World Series today
against the New York Yankees,
after the American League champs
once more cut loose and walloped
the Bucs 12-0 yesterday, squaring
the best-of-seven set, leaving to-
day's contest as the one 'for all the
chips.

By FRED STEINHARDT .
The newest member of the De-
troit Lions has not played com-
petitive football since high school,
six long years ago.
His build is not a good one for
the bruising professional game.
Yet, Coach George Wilson and his
staff have made a place for him
on the active roster instead of a
more experienced hand.
The value of Glenn Davis as a
professional football player is
twofold. He can 'run fast and he
can catch. He is a potential game-
breaker.
Trackman

Cassidy. He was a unanimous All-
American selection and he had a
big hand in two key victories over
Michigan in 1954 and 1955. He
also was a key figure in the Lions'
championship drive in 1957.)
Davis, who was an All-Ohio se-
lection in his high school days at
Barberton, Ohio, never played the
sport at Columbus because it
might have imperiled his track
future. But he did participate in
informal games on campus and
Cassidy saw enough to think that
Davis might be of use as a receiv-
er.
In his first workouts with De-

miliarizing himself with the teams'
pass patterns. "I still haven't been
hit hard for the first time. When
I am it should answer a lot of
questions."
Why Football?
Exactly why did Davis, who had
a teaching position waiting for
him in Ohio, turn to football?
Probably for the same reason that
he came back for this year's Olym-
pics after winning in Melbourne,
in 1956.
"It is simply a challenge," he
said. "If I. didn't play, I would
always wonder if I would have
been good enough. Now, I'll
know."
Ironically enough, San Francia-
co has a very similar player. He
is Ray Norton, the Olympic sprint-
er who had such a tough time of
it in Rome. But Norton is bigger
than Davis, being an inch taller
and ten pounds heavier.
'Ihese two men are an example
of the ingenuity and imagination
of NFL teams. Either or both may
or may not make good in the field.
It will be interesting to see how
they play as the year progresses.
