repeated itself this afternoon when Coach Robert Zuppke's Orange and
Blue clad Indians emulated the feat of the great Red Grange in 1924 by
successfully marching oi their way to the Big Ten championship, turning
back the invasion of fhe Wolverines before one of the largest crowds
ever to witness a contest in Memorial stadium.
Threatening clouds and unfavorable weather forecasts failed to
dampen the spirits of the Michigan and Illinois rooters, and estimates
place thxerecord crowd at more than 68,oo.
The Illinois victory is apt to prove a decisive factor in the 1927
Conference championship, as neither of the teams had met a reverse be-
fore today's contest. Their success over Coach Wieman's team gives
the Zuppkemen an unblemished record for the two games they have
played thus far. &

When the Michigan and Illinois foot-
ball teams met in the Illinois Memor-
ial stadium this afternoon in a contest
that attracted the attention of countlessI
grid followers throughout the country,
it was the thirteenth meeting of teams
representing the two schools over a 29
year period, beginning in 1898.
This season's encounter, however,
was marked by the fact that the his-
tonec rivalry of Coaches Yost and
Zuppke no longer characterized the
meeting of the Wolverine and Indian
teams. In the seven contests in which
Yost-coached teams met those drilledf

Pitch For Contest
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.j Oct. 29-Ten
l thousand loyal Illinois supporters let
loose their pent-up enthusiasm in a
monster pep-meeting in the new gym-
nasium here last night, and roared
their approval as the different speak-
grs sounded the old war cry of the age,
"Beat Michigan."
The entire populace of both Urbana
and Champaign was football crazy on
the eve of the great homecoming game
between Illinois and Michigan, and
students andl homecomers united in
giving verbal expression of their feel-
ings. Coach Robert Zuppke, Director
of Athletics George Huff, and Chuck
Kassel, captain of the 1926 team were
speakers at the hour of demonstration.
Red Grange, the galloping ghost of the
gridiron, was/ unable to come and
"Whatever else happens," Zuppke
ended his speech, "support that team
of yours. If things go against them
at first, stick. They are going to fight
every inch of the way. The boys are
a bit green but they are not at all
afraid of the Wolverines because they
are from Michigan. They are as easy
to beat as any other team."
Have Snake Dance
Following his speech the crowd
joined in singing "Illinois Loyal" with
the band accompanying. Then fol-
lowed a snake dance toward town.
Every man in the throng which is still
crowding into town for the game is
keyed to a high pitch, and last night
was continually bursting into cries of
"Beat Michigan."
Every fraternity and sorority house
in town has been beautifully decorated
for the Illinois Homecoming guests
who will pack the stadium, 68,000
strong. Superlatives have not been
invented to describe the decorations of
Maize and Blue and of Orange and
One house displayed itself as a light-
house with a beacon light shining
forth, and has a curtain hung over the
entire front paibted to appear as stone.
Search lights are played on almost all
of the decorations.
Far to the south, at the edge of town,
strong beacon lights illuminate the
east abutment of the stadium itself.
Champaign and Urbana were trans-
formed towns last night with the stage
set for making Illinois' 18th Home-
coming the greatest in Illinois history.
