Michigan's sixth-ranked Wol-
verines put their Big Ten title and
Rose Bowl hopes on the line
against, Iowa this afternoon in
the first of two crucial road tests.
Michigan can capture the title:
outright by beating Iowa today
and Ohio State next Saturday if
Purdue loses or ties one of its
last two games. The Boilermakers,
tied with the Wolverines for sec-
ond place with a 4-1 record, play
Minnesota and Indiana away
from home in their last two con-
State, leading the Big Ten
4-0 mark, is a 16-point
over Northwestern today.
The Buckeyes can be knocked out
of the top spot in the conference
with just one loss since they play
one less league game than either
Michigan or Purdue.
The game today in Iowa City
will be a battle between offensive
giants-Michigan on the ground
and Iowa in the air. Michigan
leads the nation in rushing of-
fense with an average of 256.7
yards per game. Iowa is the No. 2
passing team in the country, av-
eraging 260.1 yards per game.
