Wolverine ranking tarnished

By BOB ANDREWS
T h e Spartans of Michigan
State may not have the most awe-
some offense in the country, but
they managed to score three'
touchdowns against the Wolver-
ines last Saturday, which was
enough damage to knock the nig-
gard Michigan defense f r o m
fourth to ninth in the nation in
'allowing t he fewest number of
points per game.
The leader in this category is
Toledo, which in six games, has
given up only 18 points, an av-
erage of three per game. The num-
ber nine ranking by the Wolver-
ines was the closest they came to
being leaders in any of the offen-
sive or defensive categories.
. In addition to losing some of
their potent stinginess with re-
gard to number of points yielded,
the Wolverine defense fell back
from the leaders in total defense

(,J

(which is led by the University ofj
Miami at Ohio, yielding just 166.81
yards a game) and from sixth to
thirteenth in rushing defense
(which isheaded by Louisiana,
State, which has held its oppon-
ents to a bit more than 40 yards
on the ground each contest).
the only other two categories
that involves Wolverine players
are in interceptions per g a mne,
where Marty Huff is in a six way
tie with an average of one theft
each game and in punting, where
the Big Ten leader, Paul Staroba,
with a 40.6 yards average is six-
teenth nttionally, far behind Mary
Bateman of Utah, who is booming
his average kick 47.4 yards.
In the battle for leadership in
total offense, Bill Craigo of UTEP
and Jim Plunkett of Stanford are
running neck a n d neck. Craigo
has compiled 275.6 yards e a c h

are Bob Parker (Air Force), Pat

ed back of the week, Joe Theis-'

Ed Marinaro of Cornell contin-
ues to stay well ahead of the pack
with an impressive 187 yards gain-
