Elliott Clears Bench Against UCLA Veteran Might

By MIKE BURNS
Sports Editor
Michigan kicked off its 1961
football season in a big way yes-
terday with sophomore Doug
Bickle providing the impetus.
Bickle's talented toe, which
prompted some old-timers to pre-
anaturely rate him as the best
Michigan kicker since "Automat-
ics Jim Briekse in 1946-47, ac-
counted for five points-a field
goal and two conversions.

Bump Elliott admitted that the
6'3" end provides a scoring threat
that has been noticeably missing
from Michigan teams in the past
few years. Last year, the only field
goal was a 25-yarder by John Hal-
stead in the Michigan State game.
Bickle booted three kickoffs. in--
to the end zone, sending his fourth
attempt to the UCLA nine. His
third extra point try was blocked
by the Bruins' All-American cen-

Opener with 7-7 Deadlock

FORWARD WALL--The many times tested Wolverine forward wall prepares to once again open the
door for its speedy backfield. Here Scott Maentz (96) and Tom Keating (79) open a hole large
enough for a truck enabling Dave Raimey to scamper for yardage. The sure-footed back picked up
59 yards in eight carries for a 7.3 average.

(Continued from Page 1)

This time, though hampered by
another penalty, they made no
mistake as Raimey twisted the
final 20 yards for the touchdown.
All-American nominee' Ron Hull
smothered Bickle's kick, but it
made little difference.
Three Pointer
Bickle made up for this miss
with a 29-yd. field goal midway
through the second period before
the teams. settled down between
the twenties to the half.
In the third quarter, however,
another short UCLA punt gave
Michigan the ball on the Bruin 48..
Nine plays later 'McRae skirted,
right end from the four and the
Wolverines had a comfortAle 23
point lead after Bickle's second'
conversion.
Five and 'a half minutes later.
Tureaud brought the crowd to its'
feet again with his 92-yd. waltz
to the goal line. The UCLAns had
driven to the Michigan 11 after
recovering Jack Strobel's fumble
on the Wolverine 30.
Arm Bumped
Here faced with a fourth and
two situation B. Smith elected to
go to the air, but his arm was
bumped by Michigan lineman and
Tureaud was off on the longest
Wolverine scoring play since Den-
ny,. Fitzgerald's 99-yd. kickoff re-
turn at Michigan State a year
ago.
UCLA Coach Bill Barnes offered
no excuses for his team's disap-
pointing play. "Michigan was truly'
a great team today. They have a
fine attack and. are tough on de-
fense. They'll go a long way.
"It was like backing into a
buzzsa*, a lot of things hit ya,"
he continued, "but if we don't
play better next week we'll got

beat again." The UCLAns' travel
to Columbus to meet. Ohio State'
next Saturday..
Elliott All Smiles'
In the Wolverine dressing room,
Coach Bump Elliott was all smiles.
His team was smiling. Someone
even mentioned, "Bring on the
Spartans."
"We were pleasantly surprised,"
said Elliott, "especially with the
way they hit.' We moved fairly
well and were pretty good defen-
sively. We were moving the ball
on the ground," the happy coach
continued, "that's why we didn't'
throw too- much. Tunnicliff did'
a real good job as did McRae and
Raimey.''
The praise.for Tunnicliff seem,.
ed especially well deserved. Though
outgained by both McRae and
Raimey, the big fullback consis-

tently picked up. the big yardage
.when the Wolverines needed it. In
one sequence on' Michigan's third
touchdown drive he carried four
'successive plays for 30 yards and
two first downs deep in UCLA
territory.
Survive Intact
Physically the Wolverines sur-
vived almost in-one piece. O'Don-
nell is nursing a bruised wrist,
and Lou Pavloff and John Hout-
man leg injuries, but all are ex-
pected to be ready for next week's
game. Jon Schopf and Bruce Mc-
Lenna, who both were shaken up,
'returned to the game.
In all it was Michigan's after-
noon.
Next week the Wolverines en-
tertain Army, unbeaten in two
starts, in their last test before
opening the Big' Ten season
against Michigan State.

COLUMBUS - Guy (Sonny)
Gibbs, Texas Christian's 230-
pound, 6-7 quarterback was the
offensive-defensive star yesterday
as the Horned Frogs held Ohio
State to a 7-7 deadlock before a
crowd of 82,878.
The "eye-full tower" passed 62
yards to halfback, Pete Hill in the
fourth quarter to set up the tying
touchdown and then climaxed the
84-yard drive with a 12-yarder to
Dale Glascock to draw up even.
Ohio, which hadscored the first
'time it got the ball-on a 56-yard
drive in which All-American Bob
Ferguson ate up 41 yards in 14
smashes, made two great, but fu-:
tile attempts to make it up in the
late going.
Ohio's score came on a two-yard
pass from Mrukowski to end
Charles Bryant following Fergu-
son's heroics up to the payoff
point. It was the first pass tried
by the Bucks.
Ferguson carried the ball 35
times for 187 yards-just three
carries under the Ohio record set
back in .1943 by Ernie Parks.
Texas Christian, a pre-season pick
to finish in the second division of
the Southwest Conference, has
now humiliated two goliaths. The
Frogs defeated highly - ranked
Kansas a week ago and yesterday's
tie with Ohio was a moral victory
-if nothing else.

CHAMPAIGN --Senior quarter-
back Kermit Jorgenson cranked up
touchdown drives of 54 and 72
yards, and speedster Charlie Mit-
chell raced 66 yards to score in
the last four minutes to give
Washington a 20-7 victory over
Illinois Saturday.
The Huskies held a 14-7 lead at
halftime after Illinois wiged 80
yards in 15 plays to score 25 sec-
onds before the second period
ended
Mitchell's, scoring dash late in-
the fourth, after taking a handout'
from Jorgensen, was the longest
run of the day. Paul Morrow's
placement was wide.
Illinois' 80-yard scoring thrust
in the second period was geared!
to Mel Romani's passes to Thur-'
man Walker and Dick Newell.
Newell capped it by taking an 11-
yard aerial from Romani.

MINNEAPOLIS -Fine punting
by Daryl Krugman, all around de-
fensive speed and gang tackling
gave Minnesota its victory 6-0 over
Minnesota. The Tigers scored the
lone marker in the second period

on a one-yard drive after a 30-yard
march.
MADISON - A swift-striking
ground attack and bruising line
,play brought Michigan State its
20-0 victory over, Wisconsin. The
Spartan line, averaging .225 lbs.,
wore down the Badgers as the
speedy backs sprinted to touch-
downs in the first three periods.
IOWA CITY-Ambitious Iowa
wasted several scoring opportuni-
ties yesterday but whipped stub-
born California 28-7 with a crush-
ing running attack which the
Hawkeyes hope will carry them
to the national football champion-
ship.
Quarterback Wilburn Hollis led
the Hawkeyes with a pair of
touchdowns. Sophomore halfback
haul Irause- scored another after
he replaced starting halfback
Larry Ferguson, lost in the second
quarter with a leg injury. Lonnie
Rogers, another, sophomore half-
back, burst over from the 4 with
34 seconds left to wrap up the
'scoring.
