Wolverines Gun for
First Win Since 1955
Associate Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-And starting for Michigan, a head coach and
38 Blue-clad gridders who have never beaten Michigan State.
But the ,oddsmakers have it that the Wolverines will snap nine
years of winless frustration here this afternoon and bring the Paul
Bunyan trophy back to Ann Arbor for the first time since 1955,.
It was then that Michigan tripped the Spartans, 14-7, and
haven't seen the light of victory since. Tickets to the game have
been sold out since mid-July, and the. 77,000-plus fans that will

Bob Timberlake Leads 'M' Offense...
MSU Editor Gives
Dope on Daugherty

the 17th straight sellout in the
TV or not TV
Television station WMSB, chan-
nel 10, will pick up the game in
progress following the World
Series, which begins at noon EST.
In event the Series game is rain-
ed out, plans are to televise the
entire game from East Lansing.
Kickoff time is 1:30, with local
radio stations WPAG, WWJ, WU-
OM, and WAAM covering the ac-
Michigan coach Bump Elliott
will face the unpredictable Spar-
tans with a team that ranks sixth
in the nation in yards gained
while piling up strong wins over
Air Force and Navy. Meanwhile,
State showed early season pre-
dictors that it was going ,to be
more than a cellar-dweller by
whipping second-ranked Southern
California last weekend, 17-7. The
Spartans lost in the opener to
North Carolina, 21-15.
Half a Century,
It's the 57th edition of the in-
tra-state clash, where Michigan
holds the all-time lead with 35
victories, 16 defeats, and five ties.
This year--as in every year-it's
the coach's quote of "anybody's
game-regardless of the records,"
but for the first time in recent
history the Wolverines are favored.
Why? Michigan has piled up
45 points against two foes this
fall while only relinquishing a
single TD - State has only 32
points, compared to 28 against
Michigan's offense has compiled
795 total yards in two games,
which is almost twice MSU's 406.
The Wolverines have picked up 40

first downs to State's 18, and have
averaged 4.8 yards per carry to
the Spartans' 3.2.
All four of Michigan's starting
bapkfield have gained more yards
than Michigan State's leading
groundgainer Clinton Jones, who
has 95.
The Wolverines top State in
most defensive catagories, too, in-
cluding holding opponent yardage
and punting.
All Blue?
So, if you stop there, it's all
Blue. But the hosts herehin East
Lansing are looking at their own
side of the ledger. The Spartans
have the home field-which # is
bound tobe a big help. They have
the memory of three years ago-
and Elliott does, too-when the
situation was almost the same.
The Wolverines had looked
strong in two early wins over
UCLA and Army and were ranked
high in the national polls. The
Spartans put an end to it all with
a crushing 28-0 defeat-and that
was in Ann Arbor.
Halfback Jones is a counterpart
for Michigan speedster Carl Ward.
A sophomore, Jones scampered 42
yards for a touchdown and gained
83 yards on eight carries in his
debut against North Carolina.
Ward, also a soph, tallied twice
against Navy and has 125 yards in
24 carries.
Top Helmsman
Michigan has the big gun at
quarterback in Bob Timberlake,
but the Spartans will sport an
aerial attack with veteran Steve
Juday at the controls. Timberlake
is 14 for 25 through the air lanes;
Juday is 14 for 28.


Receivers? State has.a great one
in Gene Washington, another new-
comer, who has six catches and
two touchdowns. Michigan hasn't
scored on a pass yet, but Craig
Kirby has nabbed six of Timber-
lake's passes for 68 yards. Wash-
ington's six passes were good for
69 yards.
No major lineup changes are an-
ticipated, but the fate of end
Steve Smith and defensive half
John Rowser are still question
marks for the Wolverines. Both
have been ailing with injuries.
Michigan State coach Duffy
Daugherty looks at the game to-
day with the idea that "We'll have
to mount a much better offense
than we have to date. The defense
and kicking game won't keep win-"
ning gamesfor us forever." He's

talking about the impotent State
offense against North Carolina
which only got rolling late in the
game, and the outrushed MSU
attack facing USC.
Underdog Yardage
The Spartans have amassed 234
yards this fall on the ground while
the opponent column reads 312.
Daugherty points to Timberlake
as the Michigan man to watch.
"He's one of the finest quarter-
backs I've seen in a long time for
running, blocking, and throwing."
Timberlake has Michigan's best
yards-per-carry mark with 6.9 a
try, but left half Jim Detwiler, the
second soph in the Blue offensive
backfield, has 149 yards in 22
plays for a 6.8 average.
Michigan's offensive line out-
weighs the Spartans' 214 to 207
a man.

Illinois-OSU Clash in Key Tilt

Sports Editor
Michigan State News
Special To The Daily
Daugherty, bon vivant, raconteur
of great circumstances and, oh
yes, Michigan State football coach,
strode briskly into the Spartan
lockerroom Saturday at about the
time Beaumont Tower was cough-
ing up four gongs.
Like the chiming landmark, the
Irish ambassador of good will ser-
anaded a cramped press gathering
with an assortment of prosaic
Duffyisms reserved for occasions
such as.a 17-7 upset of number
two ranked Southern Cal.
"Apples never tasted sweeter,"
a bubbling Daugherty said, gnaw-
ing away at what looked more like
an unsanforized pumpkin, and
with a sound that resembled some-
thing in the order of a steam tak-
ing its first bite of virgin soil.
"Bananas would even taste good
at a moment like this," Duffy vol-
unteered unhesitantly, as though
he might buck his traditional post-
game diet in favor of a more glut-
tonous appetizer befitting the
celebrated performance of his
Spartan warriors.
Perched atop a table, legs Prop-
ped chin high, back tucked square-
ly in the fold of the wall, Duffy
seemed a whole world apart from
the night before when he engaged
reporters at a press dinner with
a plea for mercy.
Spurting half-apologies for the
sorry scene that was never to un-
fold the next day, Daugherty could
only see where a ravaging tor-
nado centered in Spartan Stadium
at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, might spare

MSU from sure-fire demolition.
But that was Friday. Some 18
hours and 17 points later, the sun
was shining and so was Duffy.
Luck of the Irish?
"Nothing lucky about it," he
maintained. "There may not have
been a lot of finesse but there
was vim, vigor, relish and en-
thusiasm every bit of the way."
What hidden thumbscrews were
there that might have caused "the
greatest Spartan underdog in a
dozen years" to penetrate 'the
greatest team State's scouted in
a dozen years?"',
"We simply played a better
game than we know how," Sir
Duffy explained, like the- master
he is when it comes to the art of
And next Saturday? Any chance
of a picnic with Michigan?
"No, we've always considered
Michigan first on our menu,"
Daugherty said, discarting a well-
scared specimen of fruit.
"Perhaps now they may want
to consider us first on theirs!"
Well, there. you have all the
pickings of one Saturday, the
third of October. The main
course, pigskin a la MSU-UM, will
be served this afternoon.
Is Duffy's infamous golf game
part of the reason for MSU's
astounding success against the
"No. I'm afraid my golf game
reached its peak when I was 16
years ol1. And the name Duffy
has nothing to do with my per-
formance on the course. The boys
win because they have spirit and
desire. We don't even feed them
raw meat."

the "Paul Bunyan-Governor of

circulation for the first time by
Gov. G. Mennen Williams in 1953
when MSU posted a 14-6 win.
The trophy consists of a four-
foot wooden statue of the legend-
ary figure of the north woods
astride an axe, mounted on a five-
foot stand. The Wolverines have
won the award only two times.

the game, sitting on the Michigan

half of stadium during the half-
Neil Staebler, Democratic aspi-
rant for governor, won't be there.
"Mr. Staebler did not feel a foot-

paign," said an aide. "The people
go there to watch a game, not to
see a candidate."

While today's 76,000 attendance'
is the 17th straight sellout of the
series, it comes nowhere near the
all-time record of 103,234 set in

1959 in Ann Arbor. This not only
is Michigan's all-time record
gathering but it's the best in the
Big Ten.

Seven thousand leaflets were

Unerferth vs..Butkus
The game will mark the first
capacity crowd of 72,000 in four
years at Illinois' Memorial Sta-
dium. Ohio State, ranked No. 4,
has a strong defense and an
attack that so far has featured
the passing of Don Unverfeth-
breaking coach Woody Hayes' tra-
ditional meatgrinder mode of of-
fense. The Buckeyes opened their
conference campaign with a 17-9
triumph over Indiana last week.
Psychological Edge
On the basis of incentive, Ohio
State holds a psichological edge
since a Rose Bowl return is denied
Illinois even if it retains its Big
Ten crown.
The Illini appear steel-plated
everywhere, although pass defense
still may worry Coach Pete El-
liott. However, after showing sec-
ondary lapses in a 20-I4 con-
quest of California, the Illini
handcuffed Northwestern's Tommy
Myers in the opening Big Ten
triumph last week.
For that matter, the Buckeyes
also appeared vulnerable to passes
