Victory at Iowa Sets Stage



War of Roses Still Rages On

"We've felt all season that if we
did our job, the opportunity would
be there for us to win it," Coach
Bump Elliott said after yesterday's
usual light Monday workout and
strategy session.
Elliott was right. And so were
the players who predicted even
before the season started that the
Wolverines would have a shot at
the Big Ten championship and
the Rose Bowl.
This Saturday's winner-take-
all affair at Columbus is a pres-
sure packed match for both
teams, and the Wolverines are
just as cognizant as anyone. "Sure,
there's a lot of pressure," Elliott
says, "but the pressure's 'nothing
new to us. We've been under fire
all season, and especially since
the Purdue game."
Highest Respect
Elliott and backfield Coach Don
Dufek, who's seen Ohio State
twice, have the highest respect
for the Buckeyes, but neither is
*worried about the Wolverines'
ability to meet the challenge and
"do the best job we can."
"We're going to have to be at
our best," Dufek says, but as Ei-
liott points out, "There's every
reason to expect us to be ready
for them."
According to Elliott, the Purdue
tragedy, a 21-20 squeaker at Ann
Arbor just a month ago, helped
the Wolverines realize the impor-
tance of every game. Since that
game, which is the only blemish
on the 7-1 Michigan ledger, the
nationally-ranked offense and the
staunch defense have combined to
bring about wins of 19-12 over
Minnesota, 35-0 over Northwest-
ern, 21-6 over Illinois, and, of
course, Saturday's 34-20 drubbing
of Iowa.
Pleased With Iowa Game
Elliott was pleased with the per-
formance at Iowa City, pointing
out that the Hawkeyes are "a fine

team," and that the 20 Iowa
points "don't bother us a bit.
"The defense did a very fine
job," he says, and singled out the
ends as performing particularly
well. The two defensive special-
ists, Captain Jim Conley and Bill
Laskey, harassed the Hawkeyes'
passing great, Gary Snook, all
afternoon, and "didjust what we
hoped they'd be able to do."
Elliott also cited. the lineback-
ers and the secondary for their
performances, and was quite defi-
nite in pointing out that Iowa's
fumbles and misthrown passes
were more than mere gifts.
'Abnormal Number'
"There was an abnormal num-
ber of turnovers," Elliott said
about the four lost Iowa fumbles
and three Michigan interceptions,
"abut it's the team that takes ad-

vantage of those breaks
wins," he said.


"You have to completely disre-
gard the Penn State game,"
Coach Don Dufek commented.
"They save their- best efforts for
the Big Ten games."
Coach D u f e k watched the
Buckeyes in their last two games,
and says they will be at their best
this Saturday, even though they
will be handicapped by injuries.
Ohio State's two big guns, full-
back Willard Sander and halfback
Tom Barrington, are still suffer-

western. Dufek said that the
Michigan team was luckier than
OSU, and escaped the Iowa game
with light injuries.
Coach Tony Mason added an
encouraging note to Dufek's com-
nments when he said that halfback
Dick Rindfuss may play in Satur-
day's contest. The big senior will
give a boost to thehWolverines.
Mason also stated that the boys
are all in good health for the game.

Dufek, who studied the movies
with the other coaches, said that
there was only one fumble that
was clearly a "gift," and that the
rest were a direct result of the
rugged Michigan defense. "In the
second half, our strong rush really
got to them," Dufek said.
The coaches were also pleased
with the attack of the Big Ten's

mentioned fullback Mel Anthony's

The Rose Bowl, the "grand-3
daddy" of all bowl games, is the
only one of the four major bowl
games yet undecided.
The game, traditionally played
between a representative of the
Big Ten Conference and the Ath-
letic Association of Western Uni-
versities, now called the Pacific
Eight, can have ten different pairs
of teams in Pasadena on New
Years' Day.
In the Big Ten, second place
Michigan (5-1) collides with first
place Ohio State (5-0), in a dra-
matic finale of conference play to
decide the title and the roses. The
Wolverines must win to get the
Rose bid; Ohio State needs only
to tie.

doubtedly one of the most success-

Besides holding the Midwest
Inter-Collegiate title for the last
three seasons, the team hasn't lost
a meet in several years.
In their first meet of the season,
in October, the girls overwhelmed
Michigan State, taking first and
second place in every event, and
in their only home meet this year,
on Nov. 7, they defeated the Kent
State swimmers 59-28.
Despite its small size, the team
boasts an impressive lineup, count-
ing among its members, two col-
legiate record holders, breast-
stroker Gail Werbin, a sophomore,
and Pam Smart, a junior free-
The girls have two more engage-
ments this year. On Saturday
they'll be at Eastern Michigan Un-
iversity for the Michigan Inter-
Collegiate Women's Meet, and on
Dec. 5, they'll travel to Kent State
University to defend their Inter-
Collegiate championship.

In the AAWU, any one of six
teams could wind up . with the
title, with'a tie for the title being
possible and even probable. At the
moment Oregon State, UCLA and
Southern California are all tied
for first at 2-1. The fourth, fifth
and sixth place teams are all one-
half game out.
UCLA plays USC, and if there
is no tie, one of these teams would
tie for the lead with Oregon State
if the latter beats Oregon (1-1-1).
If Oregon State loses, either UCLA
or USC would win the title. If the
game between the California teams
ends in a tie, there are four pos-
sibilities for a four way tie; need-
less to say, there are numerous
possibilities for two, and three
way ties. Only time will tell the

for many of the nation's gridiron elevens. This week also marks the
final grid picks contest of the season, the one which will decide the

nine previous contests will be going after the grand prize of a $10
