What are the chances of a Flea
circus taking place in Northwest-
ern's Dyche Stadium today? Mich-
igan State is betting second place
in the Big Ten that "the Flea,"
Eric Allen will do what he is
known for; making yards, touch-
downs, and records.
Allen will hopefully help propel
MSU to a 6-3 conference record
and a sole second place spot, un-
less of course, Ohio State wins. In
that case, Michigan State and
Ohio State will be tied for sec-
ond. But that is just statistical
Michigan State .coach Duffy
Daugherty evaluates the North-
western game as "a very tough
game. In the last few weeks
Northwestern has improved a lot.
But our morale is high, despite
this being the last game of the
season. Allen is our best offen-
sive player, and our defense is
Talking about MSU's improve-
ment in the last half of the sea-
son, Daugherty said, "Our last
half has been more successful be-
cause we've used our personnel
better. We'll be building for next
year with recruits who have good
ability and healthy attitudes."
Michigan State's wishbone of-
fense under the guiding arm of
quarterback Mike Rasmussen will
try to match and exceed North-
western's quarterback M a u r i e
Daigneau, who was known to per-
form well at various times during
the season. Wildcat Greg Strunk,
who helped defeat Ohio State last
week by running back a kickoff
93 yards and setting up a 1 yard
TD will be back to help Daigneau
out. With last week's 14-10 vic-
tory over OSU last week. North-
western will be set for a fight to
clinch the second place berth.
A factor to be considered in to-
day's game is that this is North-
western's ninth game in their new
round robin Big Ten schedule,
while MSU is just on its' eighth.
If both Northwestern and Ohio
State win today, the Wildcats will
still clinch second place with one
more win than the Buckeyes, but
the same number of losses. The
game will be a good contest be-
tween two teams that both have
improving records to support.
Playing in Bloomington, Indi-
ana this week, the Purdue Boiler-
makers will attempt to finish up
4-7 for the season. After last
week's heroics against Michigan, it
can be argued that Purdue will be
tired for this game against In-
diana. But tired or not, Indiana,
who barely beat Iowa last week,
should not be too much trouble
against Purdue's stubborn defense
and an offense that includes the
fine running of Otis Armstrong.
Iowa is traveling to Illinois to
put an end to their season-long
torment. Coach Frank Lauterbur
feels, "this has been a tough sea-
son. We'll be glad to write it off
and start fresh again,"But through
it all, the squad had a fine atti-
tude and worked hard. Our morale
is still excellent, even for this last
Illinois is another team whose
season's second half was much
brighter than the first half, when
they lost their first six games. The
Illini are on a four game winning
streak right now. Their most re-
cent victim was Wisconsin, who
lost 35-27 in last week's game in
Madison. Quarterback Mike Wells
and fleet footed George Uremo-
vich can be counted on to give
the Iowa Hawkeyes some trouble
this afternoon as they did Wis-
sonsin last week.
The Gophers of Minnesota will
take on Wisconsin at home after
journeying unproductively to East
Lansing week. After losing 40-25
to the Spartans, Minnesota in-
tends to vindicate themselves to-
day. The Gophers have a strong-
er defense than Wisconsin, who
in turn counter with fine running
backs. The Minnesota staff feels
that this game will be a high
scoring game; but fear that in-
juries and inexperience might hurt
A young secondary on defense
and injuries to John Morguesen
and Jim Henry will put a great
amount of responsibility on quar-
terback Currie. He will be assist-
ed by Minnesota's leading rusher,
Ernie Cook. The Gophers would
like to add one more win to their
2-5 conference record, which was
married by the OSU two point
The Wisconsin Badgers, who
hold a 3-4 record in the confer-
ence, are betting on Alan Thomp-
son to give them some points
against the Gopher defense. The
Badgers have been known to make
last minute game saving efforts
like their TD against Purdue in
the last nine seconds. Their con-
test against Minnesota should
thusly be an interesting battle of
scoring antics and good fortune.

Most college football fans across
the nation are probably more
anxious for the Nebraska-Okla-
homa showndown than their na-
tional Thanksgiving turkey din-
ner. But this colossal strugglej
isn't until next week so today's
grid card is somewhat" subdued.
However, in Baton Rouge this
evening a significant intersection-
. al battle will be played. Notre
Dame (8-1), the 7th-ranked team
in the country, will take on Louisi-
ana State <6-3 , 14th ranked, be-
fore a packed house of nearly
70,000 Cajun fanatics. Tiger Sta-
dium has perennially been one of
the hardest places for a visiting
team to win in.
The Irish, apparently feeling
snubbed because no major bowl
bid seemned forthcoming, have
turned up their noses on the bowl
scene. LSU. on the other hand,
could gain a berth in one of the
minor bowls like the Bluebonnet -
Gator. or Libert: with an upset
Last y ar Notre Dame pinned a
heartbreaking 3-0 defeat on LSU
at South Bend. The Tigers have
not forgotten, "I knew we had 11
games this season," says veteran
LSU coach Charlie McClendon,
-and my players knew it. But not
many of our fans knew it. There's
no way they were going to forget
who we're playing Saturday
The contest will be, a typical
Midwest - Southern confrontation
with Notre Dame's size and power
pitted against LSU's quickness
and finesse. McClendon played
the weight difference up, whim-
pering, "The humane society
ought to step in and cancel the
game before putting my little boys
on the field against Notre Dame."
Forget it humane society, LSU can
take care of itself.
Notre Dame has been less than
overpowering this season, especial-
ly on offense. The Irish have
come almost exclusively on the1
ground. Ed Gulyas and Bob Min-I
nix head up a balanced rushing
corps which has lumbered to a,
modest 3.8 average.
The Irish have gone sparingly
to the air routes. Quarterback
Cliff Brown is a talented runner,
in Notre Dame's power-I. but his
passing has been less than ade-
quate. All-American Tom Gate-j
wood is a brilliant receiver.
If the Irish offense is suspect,
their defense is outstanding.
Ranked in the top five in the na-
tion, it is both intimidating and
punishing. A returnee from sick-
bay, Walt Patulski, is the ring-
LSU, meanwhile, possesses a,
well-balanced and exciting offenseI
and a swarming defense.
The Bayou Bengals like to es-
tablish a running game and the
success they encounter against
the stout Irish forwards could tellj

the story. But the Tigers, unlike
Notre Dame, are capable of
mounting a serious air attack.
Sports Illustrated cover boy
Tommy Casanova and tackle Ron-
nie Estay spearhead the quick,
gang-tackling defense. Somewhat
shaky at times this season, they
held Alabama to two touchdowns
two weeks ago. A similar per-
formance will be required tonight.
Moving to the West Coast, Cali-
fornia meets Stanford in a finale
that appears to be meaningless.
Stanford was thought to be the
Pacific Eight champion, even
though California was not mathe-
matically eliminated. However,
the Bears' use of an ineligible
player has been questioned and so
the Rose Bowl berth opposite
Michigan is unsettled.
If California (4-2) were to de-
feat Stanford (5-1) a tie for the
league crown would result. Pacific
Eight officials would thenchoose
their Rose Bowl representatives.
Stanford can end the controver-
sy with a victory and the Indians
are a touchdown favorite to do so.
California has had difficulty
scoring of late. Stanford has been
erratic this season, but their pa-
tent defense should make their
followers forget last week's hor-
rendous loss to San Jose State.
In Los Angeles arch-rivals USC
and UCLA will stage their annual
city championship. The Trojans
started poorly but have improved
vastly over the season. They
handed Notre Dame their only
defeat, 28-14. UCLA had high
hopes before' the season. The
Bruins own a dismal 2-7 record.
Out East the Ivy League title
will be decided today. Cornell and
Dartmouthtied for the top spot
with 5-1 records, face Pennsyl-
vania and Princeton, respectively.
Although both are expected to
win, the teams in the Ivy League
this year are very evenly matched
and an upset is certainly possible.

The night before Michigan
(Editor's note: The following was received from an
anonymous engineering student. The Daily prints it for your
TW AS THE night before Michigan, when all thru the place,
Not a creature was stirring, except Woody Hayes.
The uniforms were hung by each locker with care,
Awaiting the battle which would soon take place there.
The offense was restless while lying in bed,
While visions of 20-9 danced in their heads.
With Woody in his white shirt and the coaches in caps.
They studied the game plan and gave up their naps.
When out in the street, there arose such a clatter,
That everyone sprang up to see what was tba matter.
Away to the window Woody started, but fell.
"Who put that football . ., ," he started to yell.
The moon on the breast of the Big Blue's home turf,
Made Woody wish he was someplace other than Earth.
When what to his wondering eyes did appear,
But throngs of Ann Arborites with Boone's Farm and beer.
Led by a man with cheeks all aglow,
He knew in a moment it had to be Bo.
More powerful than 'Huskers, his coursers they came,
And he whistled, -and shouted to the team all by name.
"NOW DOUGHTY, now Murdock, now Reggie, and Taylor,
On Gusich, on Darden, on Beckman, and Keller."
To the stands went the fans and the players to their lockers,
All the running backs, quarterbacks, safeties, and blockers.
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the occasion the Wolverines lept,
While out from their lockers, the scared Buckeyes crept.
And then in a twinkling the Anthem was played.
The kickoff then followed, and the price would be paid
For those skeptics who rated Ohio State "best,"
Would find their prediction was no more than jest.
And what of this Woody, a droll little man,
With the tact and the poise of a crumpled tin can.
He's dressed in white shirt sleeves when no other would dare,
I wonder if that's all he has to wear.
He has a broad little face and a round little belly,
That shakes when he yells . . . like a bowl full of jelly.
He's chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laugh when I see him, in spite of myself.
A wrinkle of his nose and a twist of his head,
Meant the defense had failed and Michigan led.
HE SPOKE many a word but the Buckeyes still botched,
And the Michigan team saw another goal notched.
As the final gun sounded, he covered his ears,
So as not to hear any Michigan cheers.
Then giving a nod indicating defeat,
He picked up his players and moved into the street.
The Wolverine fans went wild with glee . .
Once again had their team met sweet victory.
"Back to the Diag," a shout rang up clear.
"Back to the P-Bell for Boone's Farm and beer."
And they heard on the diag as the fans came to view,
"Happy football to all and to all a GO BLUE!,
