COLUMBUS-The best rushing game in the nation meets the
best ground defense in the Big Ten here todaytas Michigan and Ohio
State collide for the Big Ten title and the right to appear in the Rose 4'x
Bowl on New Year's Day.
Ohio State is currently leading the league with a 5-0 record, 7-1
for the season, while the Wolverines are 5-1 in conference action and
7-1 for the year. The Buckeyes' lone loss was to non-conference foe
Penn State, 27-0, two weeks ago. Michigan sustained its one loss to
Purdue, 21-20, as a desperation two-point conversion try in the fourth
quarter fell inches short of the goal line.
Today's game will be carried by Detroit station WWJ-TV, Channel
4, beginning at 1:15 Ann Arbor time.
1951 Rose Bowl
Michigan has gone to the Rose Bowl three times, the last in 1951,
when it downed California, 14-6. Ohio State has made four appear-
ances, twice under head coach Woody Hayes. The Buckeyes last played,
at Pasadena in 1957; beating Oregon, 10-7.I
The weatherman has forecasted temperatures in the mid 20's for
today's game, with the strong possibility of squalls depositing one to"
two inches of snow. A sellout crowd of 84;500 is expected to jam the
horseshoe stadium although the weather may keep this number down.
This marks the 61st meeting between these two football giants BUMP ELLIOTT

with Michigan holding the series edge at 35 wins, 21 losses, and four
ties. Since the mid 1920's the winner of this contest has emerged as
the conference champion seven times.
The last time the schools fought for the trip to Pasadena was in
1955 at Ann Arbor when Ohio State downed Michigan, 17-0, in a game
marked by hot tempers and unruly Buckeye fans.
Under Hayes the Buckeyes have beaten Michigan nine of 13
times, with the Wolverines' last win in 1959 atAnnnArbor, 23-15.
The win occurred in Coach Bump Elliott's first year as head coach.
Since the 1959 victory Michigan has lost 50-20, 28-0, and 14-0
last year. Also, the Wolverines have not won at Columbus since 1956
when they took the game, 19-0.
Michigan senior quarterback and All-America candidate Bob
Timberlake heads a contingent of 21 Michigan players from the
state of Ohio--eight on the starting eleven-who return to their
"native ground."
An all-Ohio backfield of Timberlake, halfbacks Jim Detwiler and
Carl Ward, and fullback Mel Anthony head the Michigan offense
which leads the nation with 253.3 yards rushing per game.
Tries for Offensive Mark
Timberlake this season has gained 546 yards rushing and 762
yards passing to be only 50 yards short of Toni Harmon's best single
season total offense performance (1940) which has only been sur-
passed by All-America Bob Chappuis in 1947.
Described by opposing coaches as the most dangerous signal-
caller in the conference, Timberlake has averaged over four yards
per carry and completed 50 per cent of his passes. He also leads the
Big Ten and is third in the nation in scoring with 76 points on eight
tallies, 19 PAT's, and three field goals.

By The Associated Press
The Western representative in
the Rose Bowl may be chosen
Monday or the following week, de-
pending on whether the University
of Southern California wins or
loses its game against UCLA today.
Tom Hamilton, executive officer
of the Pacific Athletic Confer-
ence, has set up a conference
telephone call with athletic rep-
resentatives at the eight member
institutions for 10 a.m. Monday.
UCLA, USC and Oregon State

all are 2-1 in the conference and
Washington has the same percent-
age at 4-2.
Today, Oregon State meets
Oregon, 1-1-1, and Washington
meets Washington State. These
games finish the season for all
except USC, which meets Notre
Dame on Nov. 28.
The PAC selects a Western rep-
resentative to meet the Big Ten
choice in the Rose Bowl at Pasa-
dena on Jan. 1.
If USC is eliminated-beaten by
UCLA-today, the faculty repre-

sentatives are expected to make
their bowl choice in the talk with
Hamilton Monday.
UCLA, a passing team for the
most part, has concentrated on its
aerial attack this week. Quarter-
back Larry Zeno and understudy
Steve Sindell again alternated
Thursday, hitting receivers Mike
Haffner and Dave Witcher.
If USC still is in the running, a
conference spokesman said there
is reason to believe the choice will
not be made until after the Tro-
jans play Notre Dame.

Old Oaken Bucket
In the conference column, Pur-
due (4-2) is host to Indiana (1-4)
in the traditional Old Oaken
Bucket battle, and Minnesota (4-
2) is at Wisconsin (1-5).
Purdue, after coming on with
a rush as the dark horse of the
Big Ten race, dropped their last
two contests to Michigan State

Badgers, who are led by quarter-I
back Harold Brandt. After early-
season losses, Minnesota regain-
ed its poise and now is tied withI

limping with a pulled muscle.
The Michigan-Ohio State en-
counter is rated a toss-up. IllinoisI
is favored by six points, Purdue'
and Minnesota by seven, and No-
tre Dame by 14.

Junior quarterback Don Unverferth has been described by Mich-
igan' scouts as an excellent leader who can run and pass well. He's
completed 52 per cent of his aerial attempts for 637 yards and three
touchdowns.
At the halfback slots are -junior Tom Barrington and sophomore
Bo Rein. Barrington was also injured last week, but he will start today.
Rein was coached at Niles (Ohio) McKinley High School by Mich-
igan Coach Tony Mason. He is the real double-threat man in the back-
field though. In rushing, he's behind Sander in team standings with
279 yards for an average of 3.9 yards per attempt. But Rein is leading
the team in pass receptions with 18 catches for 251 yards.
Leon Lindsey, senior halfback, has been spelling Barrington on
offense and averaging over 8.0 yards per carry.
Strong Defense
Ohio State's main strength rests on its defense which has limited
Big Ten opponents to only 79 rushing yards and six points a game.
The Buckeye defensive unit has 10 lettermen with Dwight Kelley
and Tom Bugel rated as one of the best linebacking combinations in
the conference. Hayes says these are the two best linebackers he's
ever had at Ohio State.
Seniors Arnie Chonko, Doug Drenik, and Don Harkins along with
newcomer John Fill, comprise the defensive backfield which has been

-Daily-Jim Lines
SENIOR FULLBACK MEL ANTHONY displays the second effort that has characterized his run-
ning this season. The powerful Ohio native is seen here exploding through the stubborn Michigan
State defense in the Wolverine's 17-10 victory at East Lansing. Last week, Anthony romped for
63 yards in one play at Iowa and combined with Bob Timberlake to give Michigan an unbeatable
offensive duo.

SPEEDSTER CARL WARD hurdles through the Northwestern defense as Tom Mack clears away
Wildcat defenders. Ward returns to his home state of Ohio today to battle the Buckeyes. The
sophomore back has displayed sharp blocking and break-away speed to bolster Michigan's nation-
leading offensive rushing attack. Dave Butler (77) and Jim Detwiler (48) are also seen at Mack's
side.
