All that remains is for the

record several times when the
offense was sputtering.
The Blue offense has done a
lot more than sputter,however.
When the Wolverine attackers
have gotten it together, they
have been superb, especially
with the recent tremendous per-
formances of tailback Gordon
Bell.
All depends on the status of
the great passer and runner,
SFranklin, who retwisted his sore
ankle last week. Franklin and
Schembechler insist that it is
fine. But then again, even
Denny himself admits that he
would say it was fine even if
it wasn't. The truth will be
known only when Franklin first
runs the option.
Whether Franklin -ill be
operating at near 100 per
cent effectiveness will be a
key factor in determining to-
day's outcome. Others will be
whether Michigan can con-
trol Greene's scrambling,
whether Wolverine kicker
Mike Lantry can match his
perfect field goal-booting day
last week against Purdue, and
most importantly, which team
commits turnovers.
If Michigan should win or tie,
there will be a perfunctory
phone vote by the Big Ten
athletic directors immediately
afterward to send the Wolver-
ines to the Rose Bowl.
But if the Buckeyes, who are
9-1 and have lost only to Michi-
gan State, prevail and thus tie
the Maize and Blue for the con-
ference title, the AD's will meet
in person in Chicago tomorrow
to decide the conference repre-
sentative.
This afternoon, the Wolverines
are going to be doing their best
to save the athletic directors a
trip.

Two empty net goals in the
waning seconds of the third

key team a 7-5 victory over the
highly touted Huskiest of Michi-
gan Tech last night at Yost
Ice Arena.
Though the empty net goals
iced the win, Pat Hughes'
power play goal with the
score. tied at 4-4 in the last
period wqs the key for Dan
Farrell's Wolverines.
"The puck went behind the
net," remarked Hughes. "I
hapened to be at the right spot
at the right time. I snapped it
out real quick."
Michigan took a quick 2-0
lead in the first period on
goals by Don Fardig and Kris
Manery. Both goals were scor-
ed on two on one breakaways.

Fardig commented on his
goal, "They let me walk in.
It was a bad shot. It trickled
through his (Tech goalie, Jim
Warden) legs."
Only 22 seconds into the sec-
ond period, Michigan Tech's
Bill Steele made the score
2-1 as defenseman Tom Lind-
skog was caught out of po-
sition.
"I didn't realize he was be-
hind me," L i n d s k o g said.i
"Steele is a g o o d hockey:
player."
The Wolverines increased the:
margin to 3-1 when Angie Mo-!
retto tipped in Gary Morrison's
shot from the point.
"I was trying for the lower
corner," Morrison remarked,
"there were a lot of bodies in
there. Angie just got his stick
on it."
With 19:17 gone in the period,
Tech closed the gap on a goal
by Bob D'Alvise.
In the third stanza the action
became lively. Doug Lindskog,
scored in the first few minutes
of play, increasing Michigan's
lead to two. But two power play
goals by the Huskies at 18:51
and 14:51 tied the game up.
The second Tech goal in that
period slipped through Wolver-
ine goalie Frank Zimmerman's
legs as he was trying to clear
the puck.
Michigan defenseman R o b

Hughes, who put the Wol-.
verines ahead for good on his
goal, scored 30 seconds later
on an empty net goal.
Tech didn't give up, however,,
as they scored a goal with 18
seconds left as the Michigan
team anticipated victory tooI

"We can't give up those lack-
adaisical goals," remarked Mo-
retto. "We just laid down. Tech
is an explosive team."

"The play was good - the

"There was a lot of hitting,"
