DETROIT MA')- Navy, seizing
and losing a quick 13-point lead,
overcame Detroit's Jerry Gross to
Larry Vargo passing tandem last
night with three fourth quarter
touchdowns that produced a 37-
19 comeback victory.
It was Navy's own passing game,
led by Ron Klemick, plus Greg
Mather's field goal kicking that
put the boot to the stubborn, air-
minded Titans.
Mather booted three field goals
that kept Navy in the game until
its winning strike five minutes aft-

the third period.
The placekicking specialist also
booted four extra points.

Mongeau, and reserve quarterback
Tom Pritchard who looked good
on both offense and defense.
With the Wolverines realizing
the comeback assignment before
them, the morale has been sur-
prisingly good after last week's
disappointment. "The boys are
looking to come back," Elliott said
and he probably could have added
that it's like starting a new sea-

Want Redemption
The fans could be treated to an
explosive Michigan attack, finally
achieving the potential forecast
for them as early as last year. The
players want nothing more than
to, redeem 'themselves, especially
in front of the old grads. Michi-
gan is also ranked as a seven-
point favorite and a defeat today
could elicit quite a few howls from
the alumni wolves. There will thus

Revenge-sweet revenge.
Or at least a very small part of
it as the Michigan reserves scored
two touchdowns in the final quar-1
ter to edge its Michigan State
counterparts, 14-12.
Although for a while (hike the7
first three quarters) it looked like"
that horrible Saturday all over
again. Yep, you guessed it-
Michigan fumbled on its first play
from scrimmage and the Spartans
recovered on the Wolverine 36-
yard line. This 'time, however,,
someone forgot to follow the script
as Michigan State returned the
compliment by fumbling after
driving down to the Michigan
Controlled Game
This apparently failed to daunt
these Spartan reserves, who for
three quarters played like the num-
ber six team in the nation, as they
completely controlled the game
and had a 12-0 lead until Michi-
gan's Bill Dodd came onto the
scene shortly before the end of
the third quarter.
All he did was recover a Spartan
fumble on the Michigan State 25,
catch a pass to the four, bulled
over in two plays and kicked the
extra point.
Then, half way through the
fourth period, he gathered in a fiat
pass from quarterback Bill Dougall
and sprinted down the right side-
lines for 30 yards and the winning
score. He added the extra point
for the final margin and later
intercepted a pass on the Michigan
goal line in the waning minutes to
protect the margin.
Takes Luck
Even with all that though, it
took a dubious Spartan call and
some good old Irish luck (please
note. Notre Dame) to pull off the
victory at the old Ferry Field-
Stadium, where Michigan used to
beat that other team once in a
The Spartans took the kickoff

after Dodd's second touchdown
and proceeded to move briskly
down to the Michigan 23-yard line,
partly with the help of a pass in-
terference penalty.
Faced with a third and one on
the Wolverine 14, Spartan quarter-
back Doug Miller, who had thrown
for both Spartan TDs, mysterious-
ly called for a pass play and was
trapped for a 15-yard loss. Ron
Spacht intercepted Miller's next
pass attempt on his own 11 and
ended that threat.
Dodd Intercepts
Then after Michigan was forced
to punt, two Miller completions
and a first down run by work-
horse John Sharp had brought the
Spartans back to the Michigan
39. Here Miller stepped back and
launched a long aerial to Begany,
who was open in the end zone.
Begany politely dropped the pass
and Dodd's interception saved' the

Big Ten Games To Settle MSU Status

... scores everything


Imagine, a four-way tie for first
place in a ten-team league.
Don't laugh, it can happen this
week if Iowa, Ohio State and
Minnesota come through with vic-
tories to remain undefeated with
identical 2-0 Big Ten records.
They would join Michigan State
who plays Notre Dame at the top
of the heap.
(Purdue can make it a five team
tie if it, beats Michigan, but we
won't consider that possibility.)
Hosts Washington State
In another game, Indiana (yes,
they're still in the Big Ten) hosts
Washington State in a non-con-
ference tilt.
Iowa will possibly have the
toughest fight on its hands as
Wisconsin's pass-happy Badgers
provide the opposition. The Hawk-
eyes have shown weaknesses on
defense and are still missing
Larry Ferguson and Wilburn Hol-
The Badgers don't have. much
of a running attack, but they
have Ron Miller and Pat. Richter
for an aerial game and than~ may
prove to be enough. An upset
would seriously hamper Iowa's
title bid.
Nothing Is Certain
In Evanston, Northwestern's
Wildcats must face up to the
rumor that in the Big Ten no-
thing is certain but 'death and
Woody Hayes. The Buckeyes' Bob
Ferguson is not injured, but
Northwestern will probably wish
he was.
Bill Swingle is the Wildcat
counter-attack at fullback, but it


usually takes more than a single
Swingle to buck the Bucks. But
then, the Wildcats have Bob Eich-
koff (I-coff), and he's nothing to
sneeze at.
Some people thought that may-
be Ohio State wasn't really very
good when it was tied by TCU
and barely beat UCLA. Sceptics
discovered last week that Woody
doesn't fool around in the Big
Gophers At Illinois
Minnesota, a throwback to pre-
historic football days, sends its
denfense against lowly Illinois.
Illinois is the team that started
the season with all sophomores,
had them injured, and is starting
all over again with more sopho-
mores. They were the victims of
last week's 44-0 licking by Ohio
Illini coach Pete Elliott can take
consolation in the fact that the

Gophers haven't scored 44 points
since Michigan last beat Michi-
gan State (and boy if you don't
think that's a long time, just ask
his brother).
At any rate this may be Min-
nesota's last chance to be in first
place, and they usually manage
a touchdown or two a game.
The team already in first place,
Michigan State, can rest easy on
that score, since it plays a non-
conference contests. And this
week it's supposed to be a con-
The battle boils down to one
of Spartan power vs. Irish luck,
with Michigan State defending
its number one ranking. And since
Duffy Daugherty is Irish too,
Notre Dame may not have a mo-
nopoly in that department.
The word from the Golden
Dome is that Notre Dame is re-
surging back into national promin-

ence. Only trouble is that Michi-
gan State has always been there.
Hoosiers Can't Tie
And last but not least, Indiana;
can't tie for the Big Ten lead
since it plays a non-conference
affair. And besides it hasn't won
a Big Ten game yet.
The Hoosiers can Just never
seem to win. Washington State
has been billed as a good passing
attack all Year and Indiana ac-
tully came up with a good pas
defense, holding Miller to five
completions in last week's game.
So what happens? Washington
State sudenly comes up with a
pulverizing running attack.
It's the kind of thing which
makes coaches turn to farming.

Southwest Conference Clashes
In National Gridiron. Spotlight

The powerful Southwestern Con-
ference is in the spotlight this
week with the powerful Texas
Longhorns in the forefront.
Texas, one of the stalwarts in
conference play, owning a 4-0
record this season and the third
ranking in national polls, has
three of its victories against Cali-
fornia, Washmington State and
Oklahoma. One associates the
Longhorns with these games
against the name teams in the
country and with their perform-
ance in the Cotton Bowl of past

conference record against the
tough Razorbacks of Arkansas, a
stiff conference competitor. Ar-

The latter two are conference
members also, giving the Razor-
backs an unblemished record to
carry into today's league tilt.
Opened Strong
Speaking of TCU, they opened
the season with a stunning upset
of Kansas, one of the pre-season
picks for national champion. The
next week they hung on to tie
powerful Ohio State, another of
the country's top powers. This
week they take a 1-1 league record
into a tilt with Texas A&M, also
cherishing a 1-0 record.
Host Winless Tech
Baylor, one of the conference
stalwarts and another national
power, hosts winless Texas Tech.
The Bears are still looking for
their first conference win also,
having been tripped by powerful
Arkansas last week.
Rounding out today's full slate
of conference action, highly-
touted Rice takes on Southern
Methodist. The Owls, rated up in
nearly all pre-season polls, were
dumped by a ,surprisingly powerful
Georgia Tech team in their open-
er, but since then have managed
to live up to expectations.
Conference Has Power
No one can dispute the power in
this conference. Texas, TCU, Rice
and Baylor, all proudly possessing
national respect.
Other top games in the South
today ,feature Alabama at Ten-

ranked rating to defend against
the unpredictable Volunteers. The
surprising Engineers of Georgia
Tech take an eighth-rated team
to Auburn to encounter their
Southeast Conference rival.
Traditional Rivalry
In the East the top game will be
the traditional Syracuse - Penn
State game. In another game,
Dartmouth, one of the top teams
in the country defensively, takes
on spoiler Holy Cross. No matter
how good the Big Green seem to
be each year, they find more than
a match with Holy Cross-a tough
one to pick.
Rounding out the games to
watch today will be Duke at Clem-
son, UCLA at Pitt, Kansas at
Oklahoma, and LSU at Kentucky.

Despite Wilt's work, it was an
11-point splurge in the first two
minutes of the final period that
actually won the game for the
Warriors. After leading most of
the first three periods, Philadel-
phia saw a 12-point margin sliced
to two in the last 61/2 minutes of
the third period.
The Warriors opened the final
period with seven quick-handed
steals and driving layup shots,
scoreing 11 points before the Lak-
ers broke the streak. It
