M' Tackles Second-Ranked Illinois


Associate Sports Editor

It's Bump vs. Pete again today,
but it just doesn't seem the same
this year.
In the past both Michigan and
Illinois weren't going anyplace.
This year, the men from Cham-
paign think they are..With an un-
disputed number-two ranking and

-In the past three meetings with
his brother, Bump has won every
time, but a win today means more
than ever before for both coaches.
For Pete it's one step closer to
the Rose Bowl. For Bump, it's a
chance to score his second upset
in as many weeks. But Bump has
a conflict.
A victory over his younger
brother might mean the confer-
ence championship for the Illini,
and what nice guy wants to ruin
his brother.
In past years, the game didn't
carry the significance. The first
meeting during Pete's first season,

was a close 8-7 victory for the
Wolverines. This was supposed to
be the Illini's season as they were
unanimous preseason picks to take
the Big Ten. But as what so often
happens to the preseason top run-
ner, they were upset and by the
time Illinois played Michigan, the
Illini were out of the running.
The next meeting was Pete's
rockbottom year. Illinois lost every
game that year and Bump pasted
his brother, 38-6. Michigan had
a 1-2 conference record going into
the game and weren't exactly
smelling roses.
Last year was bad for both

Today's game at Champaign

One large helping of Wolverine
meat, deep-fried in Memorial
Stadium for 60 minutes today, is
the next item listed on the Illini's
Big Ten football menu.
Around these parts, especially
in the light of what has happened
in the last few years, Wolverine
meat is drooled upon as a delicacy.
Likewise, a good, healthy Wolver-
ine. pelt hasn't been seen around
the Champaign area since 1958,
when Illinois defeated Michigan
21-8 at Ann Arbor.
The nation's second ranked
football team is planning to elim-
inate the famine today.
To do so, they'll rely on the
same essential heat - generating
ingredients that so far have !
brought them along a surprisingly
successful road this season: a pair
of volatile backfield runners, a
trio of rugged linemen, a place
kicker with an extra-steady toe, an
old quarterback who ranked sec-
ond in the Big Ten in passing last
year, and a few secondary men
who know a thing or two about
blocking passes.
Halfback Sam Price and full-
back Jim Grabowski are the dy-
namite in Illinois' backfield. Price,
a 199-pounder, looks and acts
more like a fullback than a half-
back. While he possesses enough
speed to slant effectively around
end, he is stout and strong enough
to hammer through the line.
Grabowski, 207-pounder, gener-
ates steady thrust off tackle and
up the middle. The sophomore
sensation p u n c h e d his way
through the UCLA line two weeks
ago for 104 yards in 27 carries.
Saturday he slammed through the
Boilermaker line for 99 yards in
18 carries, averaging 5.5 yards per
At the same time, he scored
three touchdowns and now leads
the team in total points.
Illinois' redoubtable defensive
line, which has squeezed enemy
ground attacks into a meager 91
yards per game, draws its strength
from center-linebacker Dick But-
kus, tackle Archie Sutton and
guard Wylie Fox.
Butkus, who is Illinois' blue
ribbon bid for All-America honors
this year, is described by coach
Pete Elliott as a "big, fast, strong,
smart and intense football play-
er." In six games this season,
while facing primarily passing of-
fensives, he has perpetrated three
fumbles and averaged close to 18
tackles per game.
Sutton, a 260-pound left tackle,
is deceptively quick for his size
and possesses exceptionally agile

lateral movement, posing a for-
midable obstacle to the end sweep.
Against Northwestern, he rushed
QB Tommy Myers so ferociously
that NU coach Ara Parseghian
finally had him triple-teamed in
the last quarter.
Fox, at left guard, is one of the
fastest parts of the Illini line and
is especially effective on defense.
The 201-pounder strikes a devas-
tating pursuit at enemy quarter-
backs, is a fine offensive blocker
and has a keen sense of body bal-
ance, making him difficult to take
out of a play.
Illini quarterback Mike Talia-
ferro is indispensable for his ex-
perience. After leading the Illini
at the first string spot for two
seasons, Mike has developed into
a confident leader, a fair runner
and an adequate passer. Over Tal-
iaferro's name, put an accent for
versatility, as he is also Illinois'
punter and shows a 36.8 yard
average in 34 boots.

gan ended the season with 2-7

tage over Michigan, and the game

coach of the conference, and has
in the words of Michigan assis-
tant coach Dennis Fitzgerald "a
great team."
Opened Season
The Illini opened the season
with an unimpressive 10-9 win
over California. The next week,
they upset Northwestern, 10-9.
They followed with a 20-20 tie
with Ohio State and the last three
weeks have knocked off Minneso-
ta (16-6); UCLA (18-12), and
Purdue (41-21).
The Wolverines will be seeking
their second conference victory.
Michigan's lone Big Ten win was
against Northwestern last Satur-
day, 27-6. The Wolverines tied
Michigan State, 7-7 and defeated
Southern Methodist, 27-16. Michi-
gan's losses are to Navy, 26-13;
Purdue, 23-12 and Minnesota, 6-0.
No Changes
The Wolverines have no lineup
changes this week and Bob Tim-
berlake will again direct the team.
One injury was reported this week
in practice.
Ben Farabee, the hero of last
year's victory, is out for the sea-

CHICAGO-Illinois and Michi-
gan State, two of the three co-
leaders in the Big Ten football
race, play dangerous underdogs in
Saturday's round of four confer-
ence games.
While Illinois greets Michigan
and Michigan State is at Purdue,
Ohio State-owning the same 3-
0-1 conference record as the Illini
and MSU-is host to Penn State in
a non-loop fray.
The two other conference con-
tests include a Madison, Wis.
meeting between two faded Big
Ten contenders, Wisconsin and
Northwestern, and another clash
of also-rans, Iowa and Minnesota,
at Iowa City.
Indiana Homecoming
Like Ohio State, Indiana takes
on outside opposition in a home-
coming date with Oregon State.
Midwest independent Notre Dame
closes its home season against
At Purdue, Michigan State also
is pegged as only one touchdown
better than the Boilermakers, tied
with Wisconsin for fourth at 2-2-
0. " MSU's Spartans hold No. 9
spot in the AP poll.
No Room for Defeat
Although Illinois plays seven
conference games, compared with
six each by Michigan State and
Ohio State, one defeat could elim-
inate any of the three from title
and Rose Bowl contention.
By defeating Michigan, Wiscon-
sin and Michigan State in their
remaining three games, the Illini
would take the crown regardless of

whether Ohio State finished with
triumphs over Northwestern and
Illini Would Win
Illinois' final league record
wouldbe 6-0-1 against Ohio
State's 5-0-1, but the Illini would
have the percentage edge since a
tie counts a half game won and
a half game lost in the standings.
Both Michigan State-which
has Purdue and Illinois left with
Notre Dame sandwiched between
-and Ohio State would tie for
the title if they can defeat their
two remaining Big Ten foes. In
this event, the Rose Bowl nod
presumably would go to MSU since
Ohio State visited Pasadena most
recently, in 1958.

Unbeaten Texas, Baylor Tangle

By The Associated Press
You can hardly call it monot-
onous. Football isn't to all-win-
ning teams. But the 1963 season
must be developing a painful
pattern of sameness to such teams
as Texas and Princeton-just one
tough game after another with
the pressure growing every week.
Texas now is 4-0 in the South-
west Conference standings and
has won its last three games by
a total of only 13 points-4, 4, and
5. So whom do the Longhorns
face next? Only Baylor, with Don
Trull, the nation's passing and
total offense leader.
Coach John Bridgers of Baylor
calls Trull "the best quarterback
I've seen on any football field"
-and he includes most of the
great pro passers among those he
has seen. Texas has a fair but
seldom used passing game and a
fine runner in Tommy Ford, but
it won't be easy.
If they win this one, the Long-
horns might enjoy a let-up. but
not a letdown. Every other con-
ference team would have lost at
least one game and Baylor and
third-place Rice still have to play
each other. Texas and Baylor now
are the only teams unbeaten in
SWC play.

easier for Princeton, but the future
isn't any brighter. The Tigers
play Harvard, a thorny rival whose
defense statistics match Prince-
ton's. And Harvard, no doubt, will
be hopping mad after last week's
loss to Penn, its first in the Ivy
League. A victory would put
Princeton where it could lose two
and still tie for the title, but
these two are against vastly im-
proved Yale and defending cham-
pion Dartmouth, two of the most
dangerous Ivies.
Auburn, the only other unbeat-
en and untied major team, plays

Mississippi State at Jackson, Miss.
Although the Tigers-Southern
variety-figure to win, this one
could be troublesome and Auburn
needs to win to move ahead of
Mississippi in the Southeastern
Conference. Each is 4-0, with
Alabama just behind at 4-1. Ole
Miss eases off against Tampa
while 'Bama is idle.
The Big Eight pacesetter, Ne-
braska, faces still dangerous Kan-
sas. Oklahoma, unbeaten in con-
ference play, meets Iowa State
and still threatening Missouri
meets Colorado.
