Driving through the rich Indiana
farm country enroute to the Mich-
igan-Purdue game a year ago, this
reporter encountered an ancient,
silver - haired gentleman who
claimed to have seen every Pur-
due game but three over the last
40 years.
After telling us of his previous
night's dream, in which his be-
loved Boilermakers had nipped
Michigan on a last second field
go'd, the old man rambled on:
"Why, I remember being up
there in Ann Arbor in the 60's,
and (Bob) Griese was throwing
those passes from here clear

ence of regional television,

has been moved up ten min-
utes to 1:20 P.M.
over to that telephone pole, and
'we beat you twice. I'll just nev-
er forget those games as long as
I live."
Although his dreams were a lit-
tle mixed up (Michigan, not Pur-
due, won on that late field goal,
20-17), the grizzled fan's other re-
collections were letter-perfect.
Here's what happened:
*f1964, at Michigan Stadium.
The Bob Timberlake-led Wolver-
ines, who won the Big Ten crown,
a Rose Bowl victory, and the No.
4 national ranking, fell to the men
of West Lafayette, 21-20, for their
only loss of the year.

The Riveters tackled azMichigan
punt returner in the end zone for a
safety to provide the Rose-Bowl
bound Boilers with a 22-21 victory.
But now it's 1972, mighty Michi-
gan is anywhere from a two to
three touchdown favorite, and the
Spoilermakers don't have Bob
Griese. Neverthless, this Boiler-
maker squad, although sporting a
modest 5-4 record, has enough
b~nafide talent to imprint itself in
that old geezer's memory forever.

The 1971 Big Ten leader in pass-
ing, Gary Danielson, will be at the

be sky high, knowing that they

Rose Bowl track. But a history of

plus a fiery fan, could propel the
Spoilermakers themselves onto the,
scent of the Roses.

As a result of more than individual efforts,
Big Ten football sets up electrifying rallies
between an undefeated squad's overconfi-
dence and a scoreless team's abounding
spirit, between a coach's wisdom and his
prodigee's youth and between a tenderfoot's
naivete and a veteran's knowledge. Today
in the Big Ten gridiron battles, the circum-
stances are no different.
Up in cool Minnesota, a coach, Duffy
Daugherty, and his former assistant, C a 1
Stoll, prepare their respective charges for a
grueling battle. The raging Spartans plan to
make it three straight for State's 400th foot-
ball win. However, Duffy has never won in
Memorial Stadium and Stoll intends to main-
tain the tradition.
