Favorites Upset; Wildcats Alone at Top


By The Associated Press
Once again, the upset was the
order of the day in the Big Ten,
as Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois
yesterday overcame their highly-
favored opponents.
The Golden Gophers trounced
Michigan State, 28-7, the Hawk-
eyes tripped up Ohio State's Buck-
eyes, 28-14, and the Illini edged
the Boilermakers of Purdue, 14-10.'
In a near-upset, ,Northwestern
passed Indiana in the fourth quar-
ter, 26-21.

State Stifled
Minnesota, the nation's top
team on rushing defense, also
showed it has a sprakling and
imaginative offense to crush Mich-
igan State.
Quarterback Duane Blaska di-
rected the well-balanced Golden

Ohio State's bid for a second
straight Big Ten title. The surpris-
ing triumph also gave Iowa a
2-2 conference record.
The Hawkeyes, soundly beaten
in their last two games, used a
hard-hitting running attack fired
by sophomore fullback Vic Davis
to take a 14-0 first quarter lead,
and never trailed in their most
explosive game of the year.
Matt Szykowny, Iowa's passing
star, took to the air only four
times but scored two touchdowns
on one-yd. plunges.
Plagued by fumbles and inter-
cepted passes in previous games,
the Hawkeyes played errorless ball
and turned two Ohio State fumbles
into touchdowns.
Ohio State, which ground out
s ond and third quarter touch-
dawns scored by fullbacks Bob

quarter and scored first on a 26-
yd. field goal by Skip Ohl. Illinois
went ahead in the second quarter
on a pass from Taliaferro to Nor-
man Walker and got its victory
margin on the first play of the
fourth quarter as Zimmerman ex-
ploded through the line for 30 yds.
The Boilermakers got back in
the game midway in the fourth
quarter when Ron DiGravio hit
John Greiner in the end zone.
They were pounding at the gates
just before time ran out, but
their final bid for victory died
as the Illini smothered DGravio's
attempt to connect for a winner.
A blocked punt and a pass in-
terception set up the Illinois
touchdowns. Gregg Schumacher
blocked a punt by Russ Pfahler in
the second quarter, and Rich Cal-
laghan returned the ball to the
Purdue 48-yd. line.
Taliferro hit Zimmerman on the
23, missed two tosses and then
connected with Walker.
The touchdown pass went in
the book as 23 yards, but Walker
was at the back of the end zone
and Taliferro was well back of the
line of scrimmage when he cut
Jim Plankenhorn, who kicked
both conversions for Illinois, miss-
ed two field goal attempts in the
third quarter. A Purdue fumble
gave him a second chance, but
the distance was too great.
Bill Pasko intercepted a pass
by Purdue's Gary Hogan on the
Purdue 43-yd. line and returned it
to the 30 on the last play of the
third quarter, and Zimmerman
went off left tackle on the first
play of the fourth period.
Just in Time
Northwestern, the nation's top
rated college football team, had to
come from behind in the final
quarter to defeat an inspired In-
diana team that had lost four
straight games.
Fullback Bill Swingle's 5-yd.
touchdown run ended the Hoosiers'
bid for one of the biggest upsets
in this or any other season.
Tom Myers, Northwestern's spec-
tacular sophomore passer, threw
for two touchdowns in the first
half and completed two others
that set up Swingle's winning
Indiana looked like anything
but a team that was losing its 18th
straight game with a Big Ten
opponent. Quarterback Woody
Moore started the scoring with a
short plunge, set up by his own
11-yd. run, after the Hoosiers took
a bad Northwestern punt on the
Wildcats' 18.
Luke George kicked the extra
point and the Wildcats found
themselves trailing 7-0.
Myers threw 14 yds. to Gary
Crum and 38 to Willie Stinson for

touchdowns that put Northwestern
ahead. A conversion kick failed
but Myers passed to Steve Murphy
for two points after the second
touchdown and the Wildcats car-
ried a 14-7 lead into the second
Indiana held for downs on its
42 in the second quarter and
scored in five plays. Nate Ramsey
went the last 29 on a double re-
verse and George again converted.
The teams went into the second
half tied 14-14.
Stinson scored again for North-
western in the third quarter on a
short plunge at the end of a 73-
yd. drive. Indiana drove to the
Northwestern 9 and lost the ball
on downs, but surged aheadagain

late in the third quarter but the
Wildcats couldn't be stopped in
their fourth period drive.

Minnesota, which had held op-
ponents to only slightly more than
an average of 26 yds. a game
rushing ,also bottled up the Spar-
tans. Michigan State was the
country's best rushing team before
this game, going for a 338-yds. a
game average.
Minnesota, now with a 4-1-1
record, still was very much in the
running for the Big Ten cham-
pionship. The only Gopher loss
was to top-ranked Northwestern.
It was the second MSU loss against
four wins. Michigan State was
/held to just 30 yards rushing.
Bucks Buckle
Iowa jarred Ohio State with
three first-half touchdowns and
stopped two long Buckeye drives
in the second half for their upset
The loss, second in four con-
ference games, virtually wiped out

quarter when the Hawkeyes stop-
