Recent OSU battles tight

By SCOTT LEWIS I
Once again, the college foot-
ball season is drawing to a
close, and once again the Big
Ten championship depends on
the outcome of the Michigan-
Ohio State clash.
Ever since 1935, when the:
Michigan-Ohio State clash wase
made the last game of the sea-
son, the two teams have battled
for the championship 13 times.
Six of these title-deciding battles
have occurred in the last seven
years.
By' far, the Michigan - Ohio
State war has escalated in large
proportions in these seven sea-
sons, and it shows no indications'
of simmering.
"Everybody gives more than1
100 per cent in this game,''says
Wolfman Don Dufek. "It's a
matter of getting out there and
just acting- out of instinct as
situations arise",
It all began in 1968, when

five-yard line.
The most exciting Bo-Woody
contest took place in 1973, in
Ann Arbor. Both teams entered
the game with a good shot at
the national championship. A
strong second-half surge gave
Michigan a 10-10 tie. Two long
Mike Lantry field goal attempts
failed in the end, and the game
ended up deadlocked.
The game should have se-
cured Michigan a Rose Bowl
berth, but this time it was
the athletic directors' turn to
defeat the Wolverines. A vote
of 6-4 sent the Buckeyes to
Pasadena.
Last year's game also brought
frustration to the baffled Wol-
verines. They quickly took the
lead, 10-0, on a Dennis Franklin
to Gil Chapman pass, followed
by a Lantry field goal.
OSU countered with four Tom
Klaban three pointers to take a
12-10 lead. A last minute drive
left Michigan with a 33-yard
field goal attempt,hbut Lantry's
boot sailed wide, and the Wol-
verines were downed again.

tor yesterday.
Wood is up for this game
knowing what has happened in
recent years to the Wolverines.
"Well, I've been practicing
kicking field goals in this game
all summer and all season. I
just imagine myself in those
situations," said the junior
placekicker.
UNTIL NOW, Wood has at-
tempted 13 and made 11 three
pointers, his longest being 46
yards. All during the first five
games this year. He also set a
new Michigan record for num-
ber of field goals in one season.
Mike Lantry and Dana Coin
were tied at the previous record
of eight.
In recent kickoffs, Anderson
and Wood both line up so that
either player could boot the ball.
The decision on who will kick
is dependent upon how the oppo-
sition sets up. Either player is
capable of getting the ball into
the endzone.
As of last week, Anderson was
eighth in the conference in punt-
ing, having attempted 20 and
averaged 37.4 yards per kick.
Overall, the junior is 37 for
1455 yards or a 39.3 average.
