Sydnor for a 38-yard touchdown pass.
With 43 seconds left until halftime, the
conversion was missed.
But the Dr. Jekyl-Mr. Hyde Purdue
team came roaring back behind the
passing wizardry of sophomore stan-
dout Mark Herrmann. During one
stand, Herrmann went 12 for 13 with TD
passes to David Young and (75 yards)
and Bart Burrell (four yards).

impressive credentials in leading State
past Minnesota. The senior signal-
caller hit on 26 of 42 attempts, good for
296 yards and two touchdowns. Smith
threw no interceptions.
Kirk Gibson, Smith's favorite target,
made eight catches to establish himself
as MSU's top receiver of all time. Gib-
son now has 107 career receptions, sur-
pasing the old mark of 102 set by Gene
Washington.
After the game,, a happy Smith gave
all the credit to his receivers. "I think
that as a group they're the best in the
nation," said Smith of Gibson and
sidekicks Eugene Bryd and Mark
Brammer. "I can't say enough about
them. Gibson can turn a five yard gain
into a. 50 yard gain." Both of Smith's
TD tosses on the day went to Byrd.
While Smith was lauding his
receivers, Spartan coach Darryl
Rogers gave the credit to his defensive
unit, which turned in several big plays
and a blocked punt good for a safety.
"Defense was the key to it," said
Rogers. "We needed a strong defensive
showing and the defense rose to the oc-
casion.

rophers
"A defense has got to hit," continued
Rogers. "We hit at the Michigan game
we haven't-hit since. But we were 'hit-
ting out there today."
The Spartan defense hit enough to
limit the Gophers to 198 yards of total
offense. Minnesota scored on a second
quarter field goal by Paul Rogind and a
later fourth quarter touchjdown pass on
a fourth down and 15 situation.
Meanwhile, MSU moved up and down
the field almost at will, but three fum-
bles kept them from further running up
the score. Two of the fumbles came.in-
side the Gopher five yard line.
In the game's most bizzare play,
Smith handed off to tailback Steve
Smith who fumbled the ball right into
the arms of Gopher nose guard Jeff
Carr at the Minnesota one. The 223
pound Carr lumbered down the
sidelines for 71 yards before Gibson
caught him with a flying tackle. Five
plays later Rogind hit his field goal and
it was 17-3 at halftime.
In the second half Smith matched his
first half output by engineering a pair of
TD drives, and the defense added the
safety.

OSU thwarts Illinois;
Indiana pounds Iowa

By The Associated Press
COLUMBUS - Freshman quarter-
back Art Schlichter ran for three
touchdowns yesterday, leading Ohio
State to a 45-7 victory over Illinois and
preserving the Buckeyes' hopes for a
record seventh straight Big Ten Con-.
ference football title.
Schlichter ran seven yards twice and
five yards once as the Buckeyes whip-
ped the Illini for the 11th straight time
in their series. The Buckeyes now are 3-
1-0 in the league, and 6-2-1 overall.
Rod Gerald, who quarterbacked Ohio
State to its last two titles, returned to
his old quarterbacking job as
Schlichter's understudy, and ran seven

yards for another touchdown late in the
fourth quarter. Gerald has been playing
wide receiver this season.
Illinois, a five-touchdown underdog,
momentarily stunned Ohio State by
moving into a 7-7 tie late in the second
quarter. Tailback Larry Powell ran two
yards, capping a 52-yard play set up on
Linebacker Tab Carmein's interception
of Schlichter.
Indiana 34, Iowa 14
BLOOMINGTON - Quarterback
Scott Arnett passed for two touchdowns
and tailback Darrick Burnett and Mike
Harkrader ran for one touchdown
apiece yesterday as Indiana pounded
Iowa 34-14 in a Big Ten college football
game.
The Hoosiers, aided by a pass inter-
ception and fumble recovery, rushed to
a 24-0 halftime lead. The Hawkeye of-
fense, meanwhile, was unable to move
until early in the third quarter when
quarterback Jeff Green passed to Rod
Morton for a four-yard touchdown.
Indiana struck back three minutes
later, after Lonnie Johnson returned
the kickoff 58 yards. It took seven plays,
all on the ground, except for a 15-yard
pass from Arnett to Mike Friede, before
Harkrader ran in from the six.
Harkrader, a sophomore tailback, led
all rushers with 129 yards, including 110
in the first half as the Hoosiers piled up
16 first downs to just three for Iowa.
The victory evened Indiana's Big Ten
record at 3-3 and raised its overall
record to 4-3. Iowa fell to 1-5 in the con-
ference and 1-8 for all games.
