years. game Saturday.

The Wolverines hold a de-
cided edge over their Badger
rivals in the series, having won
12 of the 15 games played thus
far, while the contest of 1920
resulted in a tie.
In the first meeting between
these two old rivals, Michigan was
returned the victor by a 10-6 count.;
That was in 1892, but Wisconsin
more than evened the score in
1893, winning 34-18 and again in
1899, when the score was 17-5.
Badger supremacy ended in
1922, when Wisconsin won her
last victory over a Michigan
team, 17-6. Stncethat time
the Maize and Blue gridmnen
have always been on the long
end of the score.
It is likewise interesting to note
that Wisconsin has never scored al
shutout in a game with Michigan,
while the Wolves have turned the
trick seven times. Four of the
blanks issued by Maize and Blue
outfits have been consecutive, ex-
tending since 1924.
After being rather abruptly
jarred in his title quest last
Saturday when Purdue held,
the Badgers to a tie score,

Michigan's third straight loss of
the season to Ohio State Saturday
equalled the formi ncrecord for con-
secutive reverses which dates from
1915, when the Wolverines dropped
three in a row before playing a
scoreless tie with Pennsylvania.
Unless the Wolves make good
in their attempt to come back
against Wisconsin, a new rec-
ord of consecutive set-backs
will be established.
The leanest of Michigan's lean
years was 1915 when the Wolver-
ines lost to State 24-0; Syracuse,
14-7; Cornell, 34-7; and ended the
season by playing a scoreless tie
with Pennsylvania. Other years in
the Maize and Blue grid history
that fall in this category are 1899,
1900, 1910, 1911, and 1916.

Having completed four weeks of
preliminary drill with three mile
trial run against the freshman
cross-country team Saturday,'
Coach Steve Farrell's Wolverine
harriers are turning their attention1
this week to the task of preparing1

The Badgers will have the ad-
vantage of two trial meets this fall
before they encountered their first
Conference, while Coach Farrell's
charges have confined their effortsI
to weekly trial runs and the Var-
sity-freshman meet of last week.
A victory over Notre Dame in the
first neet of the season two weeks
ago, stamps the Cardinal harriers
as a title con again this season.
Last November the Wisconsin team
annexed its fifth consecutive Con-
ference cross-country champion-
ship after going through its dual
meet season without suffering a
single reverse.
While the Badger coach lost a
pair of capable veterans in Petaja
and Bulamore, he has two experi-
enced. men as a nucleus for this
year's team in Burges and Fink,
both of whom finished fairly welll
up in the last in the Big Ten meet
last fall.
The remainder of the invading
teams will be composed of seven of
the most promising sophomores on
the Varsity squad, Moe, Wixen, Dil-
ley, Fulsom, Hoffman, O'Cock, and
Coach Farrell has selected the
first 10 Varsity men to cross the1
finish line in the meet with the
freshman Saturday to represent
Michigan in the initial engage-
ment of the 1928 season. Of this
number eight were numbered
among the members of the Varsity
squad last fall.
Captain Ted Wuerfel, who led the
field to the tape in the three mile
run Saturday, negotiated the dis-1
tance in 18:55 which is considered
remarkable time, as the athletes{
were forced to run on roads that
were heavy with mud. This is :22

ago over the same course in dryI

Michigan's Junior Varsity, vic-
tors over the Ohio State reserves
last Saturday by a 3-0 score, will
attempt to gain their second Con-
ference win when they invade
Camp Randall field this Saturday
to meet the Wisconsin "B" eleven
while the Varsity plays host to the
first string Badgers in the Stadium.
The Maize and Blue reserves
have won two games and lost one
so far this year, meeting defeat in
the hands of the strong Michigan
State Normal squad, 25-3. Mount
Union lost to the "B" team, 14-0,
while a field goal by Hughes in the
final period gave the Junior Var-
sity a 3-0 victory over the Buckeye
reserves in a hard fought battle
last Saturday.
The "B" team will be handicap-
ped by the loss of Sherwood, star
center, who has beenrtransfered
to the " A" squad. Sherwood was
a large factor in the success of the
Wolverine line smashing attack,
which gained the Wolverines 10
first downs against Ohio while the'
Buckeyes were forced to be content
with two, one of which was made
through the air.
Ohio's attack was completely
stopped by the Wolverines, the
Buckeyes being unable to gain
through the line, while of 19 passes
tried, the Scarlet and Gray com-
pleted but one, four being ipter-
The Junior Varsity spent yester-
day's practice period scrimmag-
ing the freshman first and second
elevens, taking the ball on offense
against the yearlings. The lineup
was the same as that of last Satur-
day with the exception of the cen-
ter position, where Cook replaced
the absent Sherwood.
Although held to almost no gain
during the first part of the scrim-
mage, the "B" team's attack finally
started functioning, and a series
of line plays intermixed with passes
drove the freshmen up and down
the field.
Coaches Courtwright and Brown
paid special attention to trick for-
mations of the Reserves, which
were gone through several times.
