Spartans Gamble; Drop Indians, 31-3

By The Associated Press
Anyone attempting to diagnose
Big Ten victory patterns found
himself in a bewilderment Satur-
day as Midwest football action
provided the usual amounts of up-
sets, powerful victories, and hair-
tingling thrillers. ,
Michigan State gambled in tight
offensive situations to turn on full
scoring steam in the final quarter
of its 31-3 victory over Stanford.
Iowa barely slipped by upstart
Southern California, 35-34, while
Purdue fell to Notre Dame, 22-20.
Minnesota's second-half come-
back tripped Oregon, 14-7, and
Northwestern scored a 28-7 win
over Illinois. Indiana put a scare
into Wisconsin, but fell to the
Badgers 6-3.
Ohio State finally got on the
victory trail by knocking UCLA
In East Lansing, Michigan State
banked on a gambling offense to
sustain two long touchdown drives
in its 31-3 intersectional victory.
over Stanford.
Stopped on their 28 in a fourth
down and two situation and pro-
tecting a 7-3 lead, the Spartans
chose to go for it. Sherman Lewis,
who scored the Spartans' first
touchdown, made it with five yards
to spare..
Michigan State went on to score
and turned the game into a rout
with two touchdowns and a safety
Ini the final quarter.
Iowa broke out into a 21-0 lead
over Southern California, but had
to fight up to the final gun to sal-
vage a 35-34 win. The Trojans
fought back to lower the margin
to 35-28, and then with 2:25 min-


utes left, the Trojans recovered an
Iowa fumble on the Hawkeye 28.
Quarterback Bill Nelson's pass to
Hal Bedsole made it 35-34.
Southern Cal went for a two-
point pass, but Nelsen's despera-
tion throw was knocked down by
the Iowa secondary.
High - powered Northwestern
hammered Illinois with sophomore
fullback Bill Swingle and an as-
sortment of halfbacks, grinding

out a 28-7 victory on touchdown
drives of 75, 64, 55, and 51 yards.
Swingle, the 195-pound Grand
Haven, Mich., lad who came out
of oblivion by scoring three times
in Northwestern's 45-0 rout over
Boston College, last week, twice
crossed the goal line.
Ohio State turned loose a pair of
sophomore halfbacks for fourth-
quarter touchdowns to defeat the
tiring but tenacious Bruins of

The highly-favored Bucks, after
trying some fruitless fancy frills
for the first three quarters, were
forced back to their "grind-it-out"
type of play to snatch their first
victory of the season.

a damper on Ron Miller's touch-
down arm; but Jim Bakken booted
two field goals to give Wisconsin

Quarterback Sandy Stephens
sped over for two touchdowns in
the second half to give Minnesota
its first 1961 victory, a 14-7 come-
back effort over Oregon.,
The smaller, but quicker, Oregon
squad played-inspired football the
first half, stopping the defending
national champions four times
within the Oregon 30-yard line
and finally scoring a touchdown
with only 30 seconds remaining in
the half.
Minnesota came back in the
second half, Stephens scoring on

Meet PeksTop Passers

and the Boilermakers in two weeks.

The National Football League's
best rushing team will take on
the best passing team in the cir-
cuit this afternoon at Green Bays
when the Baltimore Colts move in
to do battle with the Packers.
A casual NFL fan would easily
assume that the Packers are the
league's top rushing team, if it
has to be one of the two. After all,
the Packers= have Hornung, Tay-
lor, and Tim Moore. The same is
true of the Colts' passing; they.
have John, Unitas throwing to
Jimmy Orr, Lenny Moore, Jim
Mutscheller and, this week, Ray
Berry. They must be the better
passing team.
But, as you've probably guessed,
the opposite is true.
Colts Top Runners
The Colts, granted a devastat-
ing passing offense, have been
more than a little worried about
their rushing. Yet, as of last week,
they led all NFL teams in that
category with a very impressive
average of five yards per carry,
Joe Perry and Lenny Moore have
carried the brunt of the attack
for the Colts.
The Packers, on the other hand,
do not lead in rushing, but they
do lead in pass completion per
centage with a 57.6 per cent aver-
age. Although there is good rea-
son for not accepting completion
percentage as the sole,, or even
major, criterion for a quarter-
back's effectiveness, it does indi-
cate a surprisingly good pass of-
fense for the Packers.
Another factor that could pos-
sibly affect the outcome of the
game is John Unitas' right hand
-the middle finger is sprained.

It was a Saturday like all Sat-
urdays ;on the nation's gridirons
yesterday-upsets, upsets and more
Two of the nation's top ten
teams and many other heavy fav-
orites skidded to humble defeats
in the day's action.
Maryland, fast coming into its
own as a power, disdained a tie
with proud seventh-ranked Syr'a-.
cuse and scored on a two-point
-cenversion to trip the Orangemen,
22-21. Trailing~ midway through
the fourth period, Maryland scor-
ed on a one-yard dive by Dennis
Condie to makerthe.score 21-20.
Here quarterback Dick Novak
passed to end Gary Collins for
two points and the victory.
In a night game, Louisiana
State put up a firm defense, scor-
ed a touchdown and its usual
field goal to upset third-ranked
Georgia Tech, 10-0.

The LSU touchdown came mid-
way in the second quarter after
halfback Billy Williamson juggled
a. ,pass from center on a punt- at-
tempt and was smothered under
on the Tech 16. Fullback Earl
Gross rammed through the Tech
line for 15 yards on two- plays
and quarterback Jimmy Field slip-
ped the final yard.
LSU'finished the scoring just
three seconds before the half
ended with a 12-yard field goal.
From then on the LSU staunch
defense held the lead. Tech was
able to gain only 86 yards on the
ground, and 70 via the air route.
Missouri, a three touchdown
favorite, saved a little face with
a come-from-behind effort and a~
two-point conversion run by re-
serve quarterback Daryl Krug-
man to salvage a 14-14 tie. with
The passing of Randy Gold,
California's ace quarterback side-
lined until yesterday because of
a knee injury, kept Missouri off
balance after the Tigers had driv-
en 98 yards in the first quar-
ter for a six-point lead.
Ron Taylor, Missouri quarter-
back, sneaked the final yard for
Missouri's first touchdown and
ran four for the second, climaxing
a 53-yard march midway in the
fourth period.
After missing their first con-
version by passing, the Tigers
came up with a two-pointer to
tie with Krugman sweeping right
.On the other side of the ledger,
second-ranked Mississippi loosed
a devastating attack for a 32-0
victory over ambitious and out-
manned Florida State.

On the West Coast, Washington[
parlayed two touchdown passes
by third string quarterback Pete
Ohler to defeat Pittsburgh 22-17.
In the East, Columbia, a 50-0
winner over Brown last week, was
clobbered by Princeton 30-20. The
Lions led at one time by 14-0 and
later by 20-15 only to see the
Tigers storm back on a TD pass
and an 87-yard dash by Greg
Dartmouth, not figured to be
strong in pre-season estimates, ran
all over Penn, 30-0.
