The Michigan State Spartans
have bounced back - brilliant-!
Just four weeks ago they were
left for dead following a crush-
ing 21-0 defeat at the hands of
Ohio State. But three straightI
wins have vaulted the Spar-
tans into position to make their
1975 season a resounding suc-
If they can beat Michigan.
The oddsmakers seem to
think they have a shot, mak-
ing the Wolverines mere
three point favorites, despite
their, impressive win over
Missouri a week ago.,
Evidently someone out there
thinks Michigan State has a lot
of horsepower.
That horsepower, on offense,
consists mainly of tight end
Mike Cobb, left guard Greg
Croxton, right tackle Tony
Bruggenthies, quarterback
Charlie Baggett and tailback
Levi Jackson.
Cobb, a junior who has been
starting for the past two years,
has caught only nine passes
during that stretch. Two of
those came this year. He's 6-5,
241 and is a fine blocker.
Croxton, a 6-0, 229 senior, and
Bruggentheis, a 6-3, 268 junior,
open a lot of holes, and Crox-
