Wildcats, Hawkeyes Seek
Third Consecutive Wins
Over Badgers, Indiana
COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 18 - (" -
Minnesota's gigantic Golden Gophers
come out of the Northwest Saturday
to offer a "make or break" test as to
whether Ohio State can rebound from
last weeks Northwestern defeat and
salvage something, from the early-
se--in wreckage.
The Gophers, with victories over
Washington and Nebraska, are defi-
nite favorites. But 72,000 fans will,
pack the Buckeye horseshoe to watch
the Gophers attempt to prove their
superiority - the largest crowd sinc&
Notre Dame beat the Bucks 18-13
with that last-period three-touch-
down splurge in 1935.
For the first time in many moons,
the Ohioans will take the field out-
weighed in every department. Also
they'll be facing a team with a better
ground attack, and with an aerialj
offensive almost as good as theirrown."
Two lineup changes for Ohio were
definite, Coach Francis Schmidt said.
The shifts send Lennie Thom to left
guard in place of Eddie Bruckner,
and Jack Stephenson to right tackle
in place of Maag.
Iowa Looks Too Tough
For Hoosiers
" MADISON, Wis., Oct. 18 (P)
Northwestern Jniversity, victor over
Ohio State and Syracuse, meets a
crippled Wisconsin football team in a
Western Conference game Saturday.
Two regular Badger linemen, guard
Dick Embick and tackle Dick Thorn-
ally, were injured in last week's Iowa
garne, and probably will not see ac-
Although Wisconsin held a weight
advantage, Northwestern, well sup-
plied with regular and reserve backs,
rated a decided favorite.
Wisconsin trounced Marquette in
the opener twop weeks ago, but fell
before Iowa last Saturdayg30-12.
A crowd of 30,000 was expected for
the 2 p.m. (CST) kickoff.
Northwestern Rated
Decided Favorite
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Oct. 18 -
').- Indiana, defeated in its two
non-Conference starts, opens its
Western Conference c a m p a i g n
against Iowa tomorrow.
The Hoosiers lost to Texas, 13 to 6,
in the season's openersand fell before
Nebraska, 13 to 7, last Saturday.
The Hawkeyes have displayed pow-
er in their two games, routing South
Dakota, 46 to 0, and Wisconsin, 30
to 12.
A crowd of 20,000 is expected.
Temple Owls Upset
State Team, 21-19
underdog Temple University eleven
inspired by Jimmy Powers' 105 yard
return of the opening kickoff for a
touchdown, scored one of the major
upsets of the football season tonight
by beating Michig'nh State, 21 to 19,
in a see-saw battle before 15,000.
The Owls, getting in the first
punches and keeping the Spartans
back on their heels for most of the
first half, led at intermission, 21 to
0, and from the looks of things ap-
peared on the road to a rout of the
Michigan State, with Wy Davis
passing and running, roared back in
the second half, however, and but for
two missed conversion kicks would
have tied the count. The two were

sport." They decisively whipped a
heavily favored Michigan team, 16-7.1
P3 obably the biggest reason for the
lilini victory was an unheralded soph-
omore, Jimmy Smith. He ran and
passed the Wolverines dizzy. He was
all over the field at once, making
tackles and batting down passes with
uncanny thoroughness.
Smith Best Ground Gainer
He was the outstanaing ground-
gainer on Bob Zuppke's fighting ag-
gregation which finished sixth in the
conference last year.
But Jimmy, who was counted on by!
Zuppke to provide the impetus to the,
Illinois attack, was operated on early
in September for a knee ailment and
was forced to withdraw from school
until the 1941 season.

The other half cf the Smith-
Rettinger combination was going
great guns until a scrimmage Tues-
day. Then fate loosed its fury once
again and out went Rettinger, the
pass-catching fullback who "slept"
on the sidelines, catching the Wol-
verines off-guard.
Rettinger's knee was injured in
that scrimmage and Bob Zuppke
found another of the men he was
counting upon to squelch Michigan,
Setbacks Won't Stop Zup
But if Bob Zuppke lives up to tra-
dition, you can be sure that these
two setbacks won't deter him from
"'throwing the works" at his good
friend Fritz Crisler today. With the
biggest bag of tricks in the business,
Zup may still dig deep and pull out
that ole sleeper.
However, injuries have erased the
two men that executed so beautifully
that age-old fooler that fateful. day
in November of 1939. That was a
cruel, cruel blow Fate dealt Illinois,
wasn't it?

Charlie; aag of Ohio State, giant 215-pound tackle and place-

Purdue, 17-14, in the last twenty seconds of play. Investigation has
revealed that the field goal should have been nullified because Maag had
previously been illegally substituted in the game. And whether signifi-
