sped All-America senior quarterback
ed Bob Timberlake leads Michigan
gas into the Rose Bowl game at Pasa-
he dena, Cal. on New Year's Day
nt against the Oregon State Beavers
in an effort to become the great-
est total offense player for a single
season in Wolverine football his-'
e tory.
A capacity crowd of 100,531 will
Tree be on hand for this nationally-tel-
evised 51st annual classic.
Ranked fourth in the country in
the final AP Poll, Michigan is un-
defeated in three previous Rose
a Bowl appearances, having downed
Stanford 49-0 in 1902; Southern
Cal, 49-0, in 1948; and California,
14-6, in 1951. Mentor Bump El-
liott played halfback on the 1948
squad. The Wolverines are 8-1
overall this season, with a 6-1 Big
Ten record. Their lone loss of the
season was to Purdue, 21-20.
Eighth-Ranked
Oregon State is eighth in the
national poll, compiling an 8-21
season record, 3-1 in the Pacific
Eight (or Athletic Association of
Western Universities) Conference.
The Beavers have made two pre-
vious trips to the Rose Bowl. In,
1946 they beat Duke, 20-16, but
' in 1956 Big Ten opponent Iowa

en

Champs

smashed its way to a 35-19 vic-
tory. State's most recent post-
season appearance was in the 1962
Liberty Bowl in which it defeated
Villanova, 6-0.
Traditional Battles
Both Michigan and Oregon
State found it necessary o beat
traditionalrivals in their last game
of the season in order to qualify
for the Rose Bowl.
Michigan travelled to Columbus
on November 21 to meet Ohio
State who at the time led the Big
Ten with a 5-0 record. Michigan
was 5-1 and by virtue of its 10-0
victory captured the league title
outright.
Timberlake passed to halfback
Jim Detwiler with less than a min-
ute remaining in the first half to
account for the game's only touch-
down. He then booted the extra
point and later kicked a 27-yard
field goal in the third quarter to
round out the scoring.
Michigan safety Rick Volk in-
tercepted two key passes and bat-
ted down a third during a hectic!
fourth quarter to stop Buckeye
drives.
On the same day, Oregon State!
tied for its conference title with

Southern California by nipping
upcoast neighbor Oregon, 7-6. The
Beavers scored their winning
points with 54 seconds remaining
in the encounter as fullback
Booker Washington dived in from
the one.
The PAC athletic directors de-
layed voting on its Rose Bowl en-
try for one week. Southern Cal
upset non-conference foe Notre
Dame, 20-17, but the nod went to
Oregon State anyhow.
Timberlake Paces 'M'
Michigan's offense has centered
around Timberlake who has rolled
up a total of 1381 yards-just 14
short of Bob Chappuis' single sea-
son mark set in 1947. Timberlake
has gained 574 yards on the
ground and passed for 807 yards in
scoring 80 points which estab-
lished him as the leading scorer
in the conference and fourth in
the nation.
The Michigan ground attack led
the nation most of the season, av-
eraging 238 yards per game. The
starting backfield of halfbacks
Detwiler and Carl Ward and full-
back Mel Anthony have averaged
over four yards a carry with An-
thony leading the team in total

in va d
yards at 579.
Anthony is second behind Tim-
berlake in the scoring department
with six touchdowns while Det-
wiler and Ward each have three.
Timberlake has completed 63
of 127 pass attempts for 807
yards and four touchdowns, with
five being intercepted. End John
Henderson leads all receivers with
27 receptions and three scores,
while Detwiler has gathered in 10
aerials for two touchdowns.
Defense Cited
Michigan's defensive unit is giv-
en much of the credit for this sea-
son's success, according to El-
liott. It has allowed only 76 points
to be scored by opponents this
year with three shutouts to its
credit. These came against Navy,
21-0, Northwestern, 35-0, and Ohio
State.
The defensive backfield of Rick
Volk, Rick Sygar and Dick Rind-
fuss has improved throughout the
season and has allowed 144.5 yards
passing each game.
Michigan's defensive front line,
anchored by All-America tackle
Bill Yearby and standout line-
backers Tom Cecchini and Frank
Nunley, has yielded only 79 rush-
ing yards per contest.
'I' Formation
The stalward Michigan defense
will be opposed by Oregon State's
I' formation led by sophomore
quarterback Paul Brothers. The
rookie signal caller Brothers has
accounted for more than half his
team's total offense.
Brothers is averaging 2.9 yards
per carry and has so far rolled up
451 yards on the ground and 1036
yards through the air. The other
members of the backfield are
Washington and Charlie Shaw,
who alternate at the fullback spot
and have been averaging over
four yards per carry; and Cliff
Watkins, who is a fleet tailback
and competent pass receiver.
Brothers has completed 75 of
144 pass attempts, with seven go-
ing for touchdowns. His leading

receiver is Olvin Moreland, a
senior flankerback, who has
caught eleven and seven passes,
respectively, each scoring once this
year.
The forte of the Oregon State
team is its defensive unit which

has allowed no team to score more
than twice this season as it has
held six opponents to only one
tally and a seventh to none.
Michigan's 44-man traveling
squad begins practice sessions in
Yost Field House on December 14
and flies to the coast on Decem-
