Wolverine football coach Bump
Elliott pulled his squad indoors
yesterday after a short stint ,on
frigid Ferry Field.
Although the cold winds changed
the scene of action into 'the con-
fines of Yost Field House, it didn't
shorten the workout any. The
Wolverines still spent over two
hours running through dummy
drills, sharpening up the offense
for Saturday's .game with -the
Buckeyes of Ohio State.
Question Marks
Michigan and Ohio State both
have question marks on their in-
Jury lists. Although the Wolver-
ines' guard Alex Callahan and
halfback Tony Rio both worked
out yesterday and ran in the of-
fensive patterns they appeared
somewhat slowed down 'by last
Saturday's injuries.

Syracuse in Cotton owl;
Other owls Unsettled

By The AssocIated Press


The major post-season bowls
are still as muddled as ever today
with top-ranked Syracuse the
only team to accept a bid. The un-
defeated Orange will play the
Southwest Conference champion
in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on
New Year's Day.


Here is the current situation
with the New Year's Day bowls:
Rose Bowl: Wisconsin, North-
western and Michigan State are
tied for the Big Ten lead, with
MSU. finishing its. Conference
schedule at 4-2. Wisconsin plays
Minnesota and Northwestern
faces Illinois this Saturday. The
host team will probably be Far
West Five member Washington,
which closes against Washington
Sugar Bowl: Georgia, Louisiana
State and Mississippi all top
choices for the host spot, with
L§U the best bet since the other
two favor outside bowls. The com-
petition probably will come from
the No. 2 or 3 team in the South-
west Conference, possibly Arkan-
sas or Texas Christian.

Cotton Bowl: The Southwest1
Conference champion, with sec-
ond-place Texas still favored.
Syracuse is in.
Orange Bowl: the Big Eight
representative, as host, will come
from either Missouri or Kansas,
who play each other Saturday, or
Iowa State, which facesconfer-
ence leader Oklahoma, ineligible
to come after winning last year.
The visitor probably will be Geor-
gia, Southeastern Conference
champ. Penn State, Clemson, and
some of the runnersup in the SEC
are possibilities.
Gator Bowl: Wide-open with
Georgia, Mississippi, LSU, Ala-
bama, Tennessee, Georgia Tech,
Miami (Fla.), Penn State, Clem-
son, SMU, TCU and Arkansas tops
on the list.
Liberty Bowl (Philadelphia,
Dec. 19) - Penn State has been
invited and probably will accept,
with likely opponents from among
lAississippi, LSU, Georgia, TCU,
Clemson and the Air Force, the
last seemingly the most logical if
it will accept.

Among the regular offensive
backs, the leading ground gainers
thus farrare Tony Rio with a 4.1
yards per carry average, followed
by Fred Julian With a 3.9 average.
"Raider" fullback, Paul Ra~eder
sports a 5.8 average, but has only
carried, five times.
Quarterback Stan Noskin, al-
though plagued with interceptions
this season,' has still managed to
post a more than acceptable rec-
ord of pass completions. Noskin
has hit on 54 of 105 tries for a
better than 51% average and has
tossed for four TD's.
Favorite Target
His favorite end zone 'target has
been end John Halstead, who has
taken two of the fo"r scoring
Halstead trails halfback Darrell
Harper in scoring however. Harper
has scored three touchdowns, five
°extra points and a lone field goal
for a'26 point total. Halstead has
the two touchdowns, three conver-
sions and two field goals to his
credit for 21 points.
Bennie McRae, Ken Tureaud
and Julian trail in third place for
scoring honors with 12 points
each, all scoring on a' pair of
COLUMBUS (A) - To escape
the freezing weather, Ohio State
went indoors for practice today
but coach Woody Hayes opened
the doors 'of the French Field
House to keep his footballers from
becoming too comfortable.
In today's action second-string
end Chuck Bryant of Zanesville,
Ohio, suffered an injured wrist.
However he said it probably would
be all right for Saturday's battle.


SLOWED DOWN-Wolverine halfback Tony Rio (left) and guard
Alex Callahan, although slowed by recent injuries, ran through
offensive drills yesterday as Michigan practiced indoors in Yost
Field House.

DETROIT (A)-- Sam Jones'
breakaway layup shot enabled the
Boston Celtics to beat the De-
troit Pistons 132-129 in double
overtime here tonight.
The loss broke a three-game De-
troit winning streak.
Jones, who shared Boston scor-
ing honors with Bill Sharman
each getting 28 points - almost
singlehandedly beat the Pistons in
the second overtime. He scored at
the session's outset to give the
Celtics a two-point lead. After De-
troit had gone ahead 128-127,
Jones countered with a basket and
then his game-winning shot after
a free throw by Archie Dees had
pulled Detroit even at 129-129.
In the first overtime, Sharman
and Jones saved the Celtics after
Detroit pulled away to a 122-118
advantage on baskets by Dees and
Howell. Sharman's 10-footer with
eightseconds to go, following a
Jones' layup again knotted the
count at 123-123, forcing the sec-
ond overtime.
