Defending conference champion,

Illinois, slated as one of the f a-
vorites in the conference in most
pre-season polls, has found the go-
ing rough this year, currently,
posting a 4-2 season record, but'
only 2-2 in the league. The Wol-
verines are 5-1 overall and 3-1 in
"Michigan is definitely one of
the best teams that I've seen in a
long time, and they seem to be im-.
proving each week," commented
Illinois scout Burt Ingwersen ear-
lier this week.
"Michigan has no apparent
weaknesses. It has great depth
and has been able to shake off key,
injuries which would cripple most
teams," he remarked.
Since Pete Elliott took the reins
at Champaign, he's been unable
to defeat Michigan. The Wolver-'
ines have won 8-7, 38-6, 14-10,
and 14-8 since 1960. Today marks
the 50th meeting between the two
schools with Michigan winning 32.1
The Fighting Illini will be look-'
ing for a bit of revenge during to-
day's nationally televised game as

beat them last year, that by a 14-
