ilSU's Allen tos Big Ten marks W

By GEORGE HASTINGS
.Murray Warmath shook his
head, "He's the best back I've
seen in eighteen years in the Big
Ten. Probably the best in the
country this year." The man War-
math was referring to was Eric
Allen, who had just completed the
best year ever by a running back
in the Big Ten by leadin'g his
Michigan State team to a 40-25
shelacking over Warmath's Min-
nesota Gophers.
It was Allen's last game before
the MSU home fans, and the
'Flea,' as Allen is called, went out
in style, taking the Big Ten record
book with him.

Allen's 179 yards for the after-1
noon gave him 1,171 for the year,
a Big Ten mark, breaking the re-
cord Mike Adamle set last sea-
son at Northwestern.
His four touchdowns allowed
him to take over two of Ron
Johnson's old standards, giving
Allen the touchdown record of
seventeen, and the total point re-
cord of 104.
Add all this to his NCAA sin-
gle game rushing mark of 350
yards set two weeks ago against
Purdue, along with virtually every
Spartan mark for ground-gaining
or scoring on a game, season, or
career basis, and you have some
idea of what a year the little tail-
back has had.
His coach, Duffy Daugherty,
doesn't beat around the bush when
asked to compare his 5-9, 161
I pound star with other MSU backs
he has coached, "We've had sev-
eral All-American backs at Michi-
gan State, but never any better
than Allen." _
Duffy has said all along what
the shell-shocked Warmath con-
eluded Saturday, that Allen is the
country's finest.
But the last thing Allen wants
is for his performances to take
away from the glory of the entire
Michigan State team. The Spar-
tans romp over Minnesota was am-
ple proof of the team the Spar-
tans have become in the last four
weeks.
After dropping four of their

first six decisions, the Michigan
State team has come back to show
itself as one of the more power-
ful in the country, winning four
straight in convincing fashion.
Previous to the rout of the Go-
phers, the Spartans had humiliat-
ed Iowa and Purdue, and outlast-
ed Ohio State.
MSU had trouble getting started
against Minnesota, getting only
one long touchdown pass plus a
field goal in the first half while
giving up a score to the Gophers.
But then occurred what Daugh-
erty called "the perfect quarter."
The Spartans put together drives
the first three times they got the
football, ending in one, thirty-
seven, and three yard touchdown
runs by Allen.
Defensively, the MSU squad
blocked a punt, intercepted a
pass, and held the Gophers to one
first down. The 24-point period
finally came to an end with a 54-
yard field goal by Borys Scla-
pak, setting a Michigan State re-
cord. Minnesota came back with
three fourth quarter touchdowns,
but the verdict was already sealed.
The satisfying win left only one
disappointment on the Spartans'
minds: what might happen if they
had another shot at their highly
ranked archrival Michigan now
that the MSU team had really
come together.
Allen expressed the sentiment of
most when he said, "I don't
know, but it would sure be a clos-
er game."

The Buckeyes fought back, and
moved the deep into Northwestern
territory in the waning seconds,
only to be stopped by Mike Cough-
lin's interception on the 11-yard
line.
The loss, Ohio State's third of
the season, took a little more shine
off their clash with Michigan this
Saturday.
Another teamthat, like Michi-
gan State, has blossomed late in
the year is Illinois, and the Illini
won their fourth straight after
losing their first six, 35-27 over
Wisconsin.
The 460 yards gained by the
Illini showed up the fact that the
new offense put in by coach Bob
Blackman at the beginning of the
year has arrived. The 334 rushing
yards and five touchdowns rep-
resented Illinois' high for the year.
Indiana won the battle of the
Big Ten have-nots, 14-7, over
Iowa, in a rather strange affair.
The opposing offenses moved well
between the 20 yards lines, with
four runners each gaining over
100 yards apiece, but sputtered
when they got in close.
The Hoosiers overcame a 7-0
halftime deficit to push across one
score in each of the last two quar-
ters, gaining their first Big Ten
win, while Iowa slipped to 1-9 for
the year.

MICHIGAN STATE QUARTERBACK, Mike Rasmussen, (12),
circles his left end on the keeper from the powerful wishbone for-
mation in Saturday's 40-25 rout of Minnesota. Forcing Rasmus-
sen out-of-bounds is Minnesota's Ron King.

Dunne Report, POPULAR SCIENCE.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten Sat-
urday, Ohio State was forced to
swallow its second upset is as
many weeks at the hands of
Northwestern, and Woody Hayes
wasn't saying much.
The Buckeyes saw their last
chance for a fourth straight Big
Ten title go out the window on
a gutty Wildcat fourth period per-
formance.
OSU had led most of the game,
but midway through the last stan-
za the Wildcats engineered a long
drive good for 63 yards and a
touchdown. Twice they gambled
on fourth down and short yard-
age to keep the drive alive, and
were rewarded on Randy Ander-
son's dive for the final yard.

This college football season is
not ending with a whimper, but
with six squads, that have com-
pletely dominated their opponents
and maintained perfect records,
clinging to a hope for the coveted
national title.
However in the next two weeks,
there are two contests between
four of the top five teams that will
be quite decisive in determining
the mythical Potentate of the Pig-
skin.
One team was eliminated from
that contention this week. Auburn,
the number six team, used the
passing of Pat Sullivan to thrash
number seven Georgia.
The Bulldogs, who had the third
best defense against the score,
were violated for 35 points while
only scoring twenty. Pat Sullivan,
called by Georgia coach V i n c e
Dooley the best passer he has ever
seen bar none, completed 14 of
24 for 248 yards to pace the Tig-
ers.
The turning point of the strug-
gle came in the fourth quarter,
when the Tigers, who held a 21-
14 lead, fumbled on its twenty six
yard line, giving the ball to Geor-
gia. Their defense held brilliantly
but on the attempted field goal,
which was wide, they ran over the
kicker.
That gave Georgia another
chance to even up the contest.
which they almost did, but the
extra point attempt was blocked,
preserving a 21-20 lead for Au-
burn.

Sullivan countered immediately
with a 70 yard pass play to mate
Terry Beasley, who caught the
ball on the Auburn 44, eluded two
sure Georgia tacklers and scam-
pered home.
Georgia, which had three shut-
outs in a previously unbeaten sea-
son, tried to come back but were
halted by an Auburn intercep-
tion. The Tigers finally put the
game away with a five yard scor-
ing pass.
Alabama, number four, voted
last Saturday to go to the Orange
Bowl in lieu of the Sugar. The
Orange Bowl committee, however,
is reportedly making their ap-
pearance conditional upon an
Alabama victory over Auburn No-
vember 27.
The Crimson Tide kept pace
with the rest of the undefeateds
with a 31-3 whalloping of Miami.
Johnny Musso, the Tide's star
runner, was adequately replaced as
the Tide set a one-season school
rushing record.
The Big Eight, still the domain
of the top two teams, was the
sight of resounding triumphs on
the part of Oklahoma and Ne-
braska, as each prepared for their
apocalyptic meeting Thanksgiving
Day.
Nebraska demolished Kansas
State 44-17 on the strength of
Jerry Tagge's 20 of 28 passing.
After K-State threatened ti tie
the contest 14-all on the recovery

s
of a Nebraska fumble on the kick-
off, Willie Harper, Nebraska's he-
mongous defensive end, put a stop
to such upstart nonsense and the
Huskers cruised home.
Oklahoma squashed Kansas 56-
10 as quarterback Jack Mildren
directed a 502 yard ground assault
that enabled the Sooners to set a
one season NCAA rushing record.
Texas moved within one game
of its fourth consecutive South-
western Conference title and :the
Cotton Bowl, by lacing another
upstart TCU, 31-0.
Stanford hit those "We've al-
ready clinched the Rose Bowl"
letdown blues this week, being
dumped by weak San Jose State,
13-12. The Indians' Rod Garcia,
holder of numerous Pacific Eight
records for markmanship with the
toe, missed five-field goals and
two extra points. Stanford drove
well but just was not able to
punch the ball across the goal
line against an aroused San Jose
State defense.
Dartmouth, having been knock-
ed from the unblemished ranks
last week at Morningside Heights
by the Cardiac Kids of Columbia,
returned the favor to Ivy leader
Cornell, despite running sensation
Ed Marinaro's two touchdowns in
the second half.
The Indians achieved their 24-
14 victory by shutting off Ma-
rinaro.in the first half, when the
Cornell fullback made only 40
yards in 18 attempts.
