bounds on his 25 yyard line.
Pingel was stopped on a try at right
end, Szasz made five over left tackle,
but Haney was stopped on the next'

His kick just barely rolled into the
end zone for a touchback.
The ball was brought out on the

stopped at the line, Trosko stepped
through a big hole at his own left
tackle for six. Purucker was again
stopped and then punted out of
bounds on the State 39.
State could get but four yards in
three downs and Pingel booted to
Purucker who came back 12 yards to
his own 23.
On a reverse, Evashevski to Pur-
ucker, Norm wriggled through right
tackle for eight yards. Phillips made
it a first down as he hit center for
four. Three line smashes by Purucker,
