Michigan State Invades
Marquette For Grid Tilt
MILWAUKFE, Nov. 15. -PR)-
Michigan State's "Wy and Willie," the
backfield brothers, tonight seemed
due at last to start a football game
together.J
Coach Charley Bachman indicated
the Davis pair, who never before
started a college game shoulder to
shoulder, would be in there tomorrow
at the kickoff against Marquette-Wy
at left half, Willie at quarter.
Fans anticipated a wide-open game,
in view of Marqu.ette's attachment to
the forward pass and a certain
amount of skill at it on the Spartans'
part.

This is the season's high spot forj
B. C. and the Hoyas. Both have been
highly-touted, for their 200-pound
lines and their able backs, and neith-
er has been beaten or tied. Nor has
either one been tested since ear'ly in
the season. That's why a capacity
crowd of 30,000 will be on hand at
Boston to find out which of the two
really deserves to be ranked with the
best.
Notre Dame Faces
Iowa Hawkeyes
SOUTH BEND, ind., Nov. 15-UP)-'
Iowa's Hawkeves, who upset the Irish
last season, tomorrow will try to
solve the puzzle that has been the
1940 Notre Dame football team.
Notre Dame has won six straight
games, yet lost prestige nationally
as the result of unimpressive perfor-
mances against Army and Navy dur-
ing the past two weeks. The Irish,
with a good game against Iowa, could
answer critics who have contended
they are not a top flight eleven des-
pite their undefeated, untied record.

DeCorrevont climaxed his school-

fans who packed Soldiers' Field to
watch his team walk off with the
Chicago high school championship.

Bucks To Play Illini
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nov. 15-(/P)-
Ohio State's Buckeyes, holding an
advantage in weight, speed and re-
serve strength, will be heavy favorites
tomorrow to defeat Illinois at Memor-
ial Stadium.
Illinois, whgich defeated Bradley
in its opener and then lost its next
five games, was expected to bid for
an upset victory with a passing at-
tack. The Buckeyes were expected
to rely on a strong rushing game
built around Don Scott and Jim Lang-
hurst.
