Cadets, Texas, Georgia, Win Again

NEW YORK, Oct. 19-(IP)-Long
runs characterized the play today as
the nation's list of unbeaten college
football teams was cut almost in
half.
Army, back at the top of the heap
as the'No. 1 club, shook Gienn Davis
its Mr. Outside, loose or 66 years and
a touchdown and then unleashed Mr.
Inside, Doc Blanchard, for 93 yards
and another counter as the Cadets
hammered out their 23rd consecutive
victory. This time previously un-
blemished Columbia was the victim,
48 to 14.
A 47-yard pass and run play, engi-
neered by Bobby Layne, gave Texas
its third touchdown in its 20 to 0
romp over Arkansas, the Razor-
back's first defeat. Sprints of 65,and
69 yards brought Iowa home the 13 to
0 winner over Indiana in the Big
Nine's biggest surprise.
Largest of Day
Longest run of the day, however,
was turned in by end Ed Powell of
Florida A. & M., who intercepted a
pass three yards in his own end zone
and scampered the 103-yards for the
marker that gave his team a 7 to 0
decision over Morris Brown.
Short, consistent gains, however
brought Tennessee a 12 to 0 triumph
ever Alabama in 'one of the day's
most important clashes and shot
Coach Bob Neyland's record to 36
consecutive victories.
But that was the exception. Char-
lie Trippi, Georgia's fawned back,

snagged an Oklahoma A & M pass
and romped 70 yards for one score in
his team's 33 to 13 victory. Jim Aus-
tin of Missouri, burst through the
Iowa State line for 57 yards as his
team won, also 33 to13. George
Guerre went 52 yards, then 43 as
Michigan State spoiled Penn State's
homecoming, 19 to 16.
Penn Continues On
Pennylvania continued to give evi-
dence of power in taking apart Vir-
ginia, another unbeaten team until
today, by a 40 to 0 score and Har-
vard, gradually gaiing Eastern pres-
tige, humbled Coast Guard, 69 to 0.
It was the Cadets first 1946 setback.
Brown spilled Dartmouth, 20 to 13,
and Syracuse dumped Holy Cross 21
to 12, in a pair of Eastern surprises
that equalled the Michigan State vic-
tory. Cornell pulled abreast Yale, 6
to 6, and Herman Wedemeyer guided
St. Mary's to its fifth win over Ford-
ham, 33 to 2.
Texas Christian tumbled to the bot-
tom of the Southwest Conference on
a 14-to-0 loss to Texas A. & M. and
Texas Tech, which would like a bid
to that circuit, belted Baylor, 13 to 6.
It was Tech's third victory this year
over a Southwest loop team.
Oklahoma Wins
Oklahoma counted 14 points in the
last period to spill Kansas State, 28
to 7, and a Nebraska field goal
dumped Kansas from the unbeaten
list, 16 to 14.

Rykovich Leads
Illinois To Win
Over Wisconsin
Young, Moss Score
In 27-21 Triumph
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Oct. 19-(,P)-
Julie Rykovich, a star halfback as a
Navy trainee at Notre Dame in 1943,
set Illinois afire with his passing and
running for a pair of fourth quarter
touchdowns today in a rally which
overpowered Wisconsin 27-21 before
a homecoming crowd of 62,597.
In capturing their first homecom-
ing victory since 1942, the Illini swept
54 and 57 yards for their two final
scores.
Rykovich scampered 19 yards to
the Wisconsin one-yard stripe to
set up the Illini's first touchdown
in the last quarter. Moss squirmed
over on third down from the one-
yard line.
Don Maechtle, who had place-
kicked two extra points, missed this
time and -Wisconsin remained ahead
21-20. With the clock running out,
Rykovich took the rare role as passer,
connecting for 31 yards to end Ike
Owen. Then Moss flipped 14 yards
to sub Joe Buscemi. Rykovich finally
blasted over from the 3. Maechtle
added the point for the final 27-2 1
tally.
Buddy Young scored Illinois' in-
itial touchdown before the game
was two minutes old on a 34-yard
sprint.
Wisconsin, however, outweighed 14
pounds per man in the line, afforded
the fireworks in the spectacular
game. After Young had galloped for
his first score in three contests, the
Badgers' Willy Dreyer sped 92 yards
with the kickoff to a touchdown.
The Badgers-with Lisle' Black-
bourn placekicking each extra
point-drove ahead 14-7 four min-
utes later. Farnham Johnson, an
end, recovered Young's fumble on
the Illini 6, and halfback Don
Kindt rammed over.
But Illinois bounced back to score
on a 63-yard march. Moss capped the
parade with a one-yard quarterback
sneak.
The Badgers rolles into a 21-14
halftime margin with an 80-yard
push at the outset of the second pe-
riod. It took them only five plays to
do it-with Jack Wink making a
sensational 42-yard pass to end Dale
Bowers who snared the ball on the
20 and scampered across.

STAE COLLEGE, Pa., Oct. 19-( P)
-A whirlwind finish, sparked by
George Guerre today gave twice
beaten Michigan State a thrilling
19 to 16 football victory over Penn
State, and wrecked what 20,000 Nit-
tany Lion partisans hoped would be
just another hurdle on the road to
an unbeaten season.
A colorful homecoming crowd,
largest to see a game on Beaver Field
in more than two decades, sat in si-
lence as GqLerre spearheaded the sec-
ond-half drive that overcome an
early Penn State lead and brought
victory to Michigan State for the
second successive year.
With the Nittany Lions out in
front, 14-0, the Spartans roared to
two touchdowns in the third period,

BUDDY YOUNG-Highly publi-
cized Negro Scat Back who final-
ly "arrived" yesterday when he
started Illinois on its 27-21 win
over Wisconsin by dashing 34
yards to a touchdown in the first
two minutes of the game.
OSU, Purdue
Tie; Tarheels
Coy ScoreS Twice;
Carolina Rally Wirs
COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 19-(/P)-An
injury-riddled Purdue football team;,
paced by a limping fullback who
tallied both its touchdowns, played
the favored Ohio State Buck to a
14-14 deadlock today.
Fullback Ed Cody, playing part
time because of an ankle injury,
staked the Boilermakers to their
surprising tie by scampering 30
yards with a screen pass for the
- first Purdue touchdown in the
second period and weaving his way
for 69 yards and another touch-
down early in the second half.
Henry Stram, substitute fullback,
kicked both extra points for the
Boilermakers.
A capacity crowd of 76,025 saw
Ohio State bounce out in front with
two touchdowns in the first half.
Left halfback Tommy James
sparked the Bucks' first scoring
effort. He took a Purdue punt on
his 25 and returned it 13 yards.
Several plays later, he ripped off
19 yards for a first down on Pur-
due's 35, and as the Buck offense
slowed, he flipped a fourth-down
pass to Alex Verdova, who caught
it on the goal line for a 32-yard
gain and a touchdown.
For their second tally the Bucks
drove 60 yards on the ground and
Joe Whisler crashed over from the
one-yard line.
Justice, Pupa Star
BALTIMORE, Oct. 19-- %- 1
Smashing from behind with two
sudden touchdowns in the last quar-
ter, the North Carolina Tar Heels
remained in the undefeated ranks
today by overpowering Navy 21-14
in a bruising football duel.
It was a battle of two fighting lines
and an aray of hard-running backs,
and again, as against Duke last
week, Middie miscues got them into
plenty of trouble, while the South-
erners took advantage of every
break.
Choo-Choo Charlie Justice, the
Tar Heels' slippery freshman star,
made the initial score in the first
period, while Walt Pupa took over
to tally a airJA t ofinuchdow n Arly

both times, and then put together, a
third drive of 66 yards for the win-
ning score. An automatic safety, late
in the fourth period, represented
Penn State's only point getting in
the last 30 minutes.
Guerre, 165 pounds of football dy-
namite, went the whole way 52 yards
for the first Spartan touchdown,
then set up a second score with an
equally thrilling scamper of 43 yards.
Stan Szieradski went over from the
one for the latter score, but Pete
Fornari failed to convert both times,
and Penn State was still leading,
14-12, as the last period opened.
Early in the fourth period, with
Horace Smith giving Guerre yeoman
assistance, the Spartans went 66
yards for their third
