By The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota's
passing attack, largely ineffective
much of the time, struck like light-
ning for a touchdown early in the
fourth quarter to give the Goph-
ers a 7-6 victory over Purdue yes-
Quarterback Duane Blaska, able
to complete only 6 of 21 passes to
that point, hit end Ray Zitzloff on
a 29-yard scoring strike with 10:23
left in the game. Colin Versich
added the extra point to decide
the titantic defensive struggle.
The Minnesota victory set up
next week's showdown for the Big
Ten championship against Wis-
consin at Madison. Both are 5-1
in the conference.
Zitzloff took the ball away from
two defenders, Tom Bloom and
Ronald Meyer, at the Purdue three
and slipped into the end zone for
the game's lone touchdown. 4
Kicker Skip Ohl had staked
Purdue to a 6-0 halftime lead

EVANSTON - Michigan State
halted sophomore Tom Myers, the
nation's leading passer, and ended
Northwestern's Big Ten title and
Rose Bowl hopes 31-7 yesterday.
Overcoming a rash of their own
mistakes, the Spartans'turned a'
blocked punt and a pass intercep-
tion into touchdowns and com-
pletely dominated play a f t e rl
Northwestern had grabbed an ear-I
ly 7-0 lead.
Off Balance
Myers, who went into the game
with 104 completions in 160 at-
tempts for 1,403 yards and 13'
touchdowns, was kept off balance
throughout the game as the hard-
charging Michigan State defensive
line threw him for losses repeated-
ly. Myers completed 8 of 24 passes
for a net of 47 yards.
No less than six times, Michigan
State handed the ball to North-j
western on fumbles and pass in-
terceptions but the W i l d c a t s
couldn't take advantage.

CHAMPAIGN-Shadowy half-
back Lou Holland scored four
touchdowns and zoomed fourth-
ranked Wisconsin to an easy, but
important Big Ten conquest of
lowly Illinois 35-6 yesterday.
The triumph gpparently gained
Wisconsin a Rose Bowl bid, even
though the Big Ten season will
not close until next Saturday.
Holland, 5-feet-10, 180-pound
junior, produced three first quar-
ter touchdowns on his first four
plays of the game as the Badgers
hiked their Big Ten record to 5-1
and their over-all mark to 7-1.
The Badgers, who were brilliant-
ly led by quarterback Ron Vander-
Kelen, on this bleak, dreary Dad's
Day at Illinois, set the stage for
a clinching Big Ten title finale
against Minnesota next Saturday
at Madison. In view of Minneso-
ta's 7-6 conquest of Purdue yester-
day, plus the fact the Gophers are
ineligible for a Rose Bowl bid, the
Badgers apparently nailed down a

COLUMBUS-Ohio State got a
lot of offensive help from a cou-
ple of sparingly-used defensive
players yesterday as the Bucks

sectional contest before 72,828
The rainy-day crowd was as
much a shocker as the score since
it was the smallest throng to see
Ohio in action here in several
Bill Mrukowski, senior from
Elyria, came out of the discards
to quarterback the Bucks to vic-
tory. Two weeks ago he was so
low on the totem pole he did not
even make the trip to Ioda. But
he was good enough yesterday to
score two touchdowns and pilot
the Ohio club faultlessly. He was
shoved into the signal-calling spot
in place of injured John Mum-
Chuck Mamula of Martins Ferry,
a junior defensice tackle, scored
his first points as he took over
the place-kicking chores

ATLANTA--Georgia Tech used
a new shotgun offense and old
reliable fullback Mike McNames
yesterday to upset top-ranked Ala-
bama 7-6 and hand the defending
national champions their first'
football defeat in 27 games.
McNames, a 196-pound senior,
intercepted a pass in the second
period and raced 26 yards to the
Alabama 14. Two plays later, he
went nine yards for a touchdown.
And in the fourth period, his jar-
ring tackle thwarted a two-point
conversion try when Alabama went
for broke after its touchdown and
Wound up in a state o defeat.
Alabama charged back furiously
in a last-minute drive and reach-
ed the Tech 14, but defensive spe-
cialist Don Toner intercepted a
deflected pass with 39 seconds left
to play and sealed the tremendous
Alabama's touchdown in the fin-
al six minutes came after Tech
quarterback Billy Lothridge fum-
bled a snap from center on fourth
down while back to punt. He got
the kick off, but an official ruled
his knee touched the ground at the
Tech 9. Alabama took it over in
four plays with halfback Cotton
Clark scoring his 14th touchdown
of the season from the 2.

Fumble Costly
LOS ANGELES-Speedy half-
back Willie Brown cracked open a

tight and fumble-plagued football
game with a 56-yard touchdown
run in the third quarter to give
Southern California a 13-6 victory
over a spirited Navy team and run
the Trojans' unbeaten streak to
eight yesterday.
The dangerous Middies from An-
napolis had a 4-4 record going into
the game and were two-touch-
down underdogs to the nationally
ranked second-place Trojans but
almost scored an upset in the clos-
ing minutes.
The heartbreaker occurred, with
the ball on the Southern Califor-
nia five, when fullback Pat Don-
nelly fumbled going into the end
zone and the ball was recovered by
Trojan Gary Potter.
It developed that Donnelly was
hit hard on the goal line by quar-
terback Pete Beathard and a sec-
ond jolt by a Trojan tackle, Gary
Kirner, completed the disastrous

A Power Reborn
NORMAN - The Oklahoma
Sooners, reborn giants of the mid-
lands, cracked through sixth-rank-
ed Missouri's vaunted defense for
touchdowns at the start of each
half yesterday for a 13-0 win over
the Tigers.
The victory was Oklahoma's
fifth in a row in Big Eight confer-
ence play and .put the Sooners in
sole possession of the conference
lead and allowed them to take a
big stride toward becoming the

conference's representative in the
Orange Bowl New Year's Day.
Missouri suffered, its first defeat
of the season. Nebraska has lost
only one conference game and the
Sooners must beat the Cornhusk-
ers next week to take the confer-
ence crown.
Oklahoma's d e f e n s e stopped
Missouri's rushing attack, best in
the nation until yesterday, as cold
as the wet 40 degree day.

Penn State Awesome
WORCESTER - Awesome Penn
State, sparked by guard Joe Blas-
enstein and quarterback Pete
Liske, defeated willing Holy Cross
48-20 yesterday while enhancing
its chances for a fourth straight
football bowl appearance.
A faking magician, Liske steered
the east's top-rated power to a
breakaway 21-point second period.
Liske ran 29 yards behind superb
end Dave Robinson's block for one
touchdown, passed 43 to Chris
Weber and pitched to Junior Pow-
ell for the third.
A highly-charged underdog Holy
Cross squad saw two scoring
threats stopped by Blasenstein, a
212-pounder from Philadelphia. He
intercepted a pass deflected by
teammate Ed Stuckrath early in
the game.
The Nittany Lions, famed as a
November whirlwind, left no doubt
about their intentions when they
consumed most of the third quar-
ter barging 99 yards in 12 plays,


the last of which saw Buddy Tor-
ris slam over to pay dirt.

Penalties Help
FORT WORTH-Clutch runs by
Jerry Cook and costly Texas Chris-
tian penalties carried Texas to a
14-0 triumph and within a half-
game of the Cotton Bowl yester-
Undefeated Texas, with a 5-0-1
record, now can tie Texas A & M
on Thanksgiving Day and clinch
the Cotton Bowl spot. It can win
the Southwest Confernce cham-
pionship withsa victory.
Muddy Field
Paying no heed to a muddy field,
the Longhorns slashed and tore
Texas Christian into submission
after being repulsed repeatedly by
the gritty Horned Frogs in the
first half.
The Texas defense kept TCU
inside its 32-yard line the first
two periods, inside its 34 the next
and only in the final quarter could
the weary Frogs get as far as their
Rebels Roll
* KNOXVILLE-Louis Guy's 100-
yd. runback of a pass interception
killed Tennessee's hopes for a tie
yesterday and Mississippi rolled
toward its first perfect football
season in 70 years with a 19-6 vic-
The bruising game, played on a
rain-soaked field, erupted into a
swinging free-for-all late in the
fourth quarter after Tennessee
scored its lone touchdown on a 16-
yard pass from Bobby Morton to
John Hudson.
Ole Miss, the nation's third-
ranked team, was ahead 7-0 in the
third period when Guy grabbed
Mallon Faircloth's pass in the end
zone and outran a horde of Vols
for the score.
Tennessee was on the Rebel 4
at the time and making a strong
bid to score and possibly tie the
Cadets Nipped
NEW YORK - Rick Leeson's
placement after Pitt's only touch-
down beat Army 7-6 yesterday in
a head-knocking football game
marred by sloppy ball handling by
the Cadets before 23,917 in Yan-
kee Stadium.
Bob Roeder drove into the end
zone from the 4 in the second per-
iod after Pitt's Jim Irwin had re-
covered John Seymour's fumble on
the Army 15. Roeder scored on a
fourth-and-2 situation, skirting
right end on a power sweep.

Auburn Upset
AUBURN-Larry Rakestraw fir-
ed three touchdown passes to Don
Porterfield and led Georgia to a
30 to 21 upset victory yesterday
r,ver Auburn.
Georgia also scored on a spec-
tacular 87-yard pass interception
return by Joe Burson and a field
goal by Bill McCullough which
traveled 48 yards.
Hampered by injuries, Auburn's
Tigers, previously beaten only by
Florida. had to rely heavily on
