Pave Way For Dfeat

(Continued from Page 1)

when Michigan was knocking on the
door of the Illini goal line. With
third down and seven on the Illinois
9, Yerges dropped a direct pass from
J.T. White at center. White, how-
ever, fell on the loose ball and the
Wolverines had another chance.
But there was another muff i
the Maize and Blue backfield and
Illinois took over on its own ten-yard
line. Despite roughing and attempts
to steal the pigskin by Michigan with
the time running out, the Illini man-
aged to hold onto the ball and secure
their triumph.
Michigan Scores First
It was the fiifth straight game in
which the Wolverines have scored
first but the lead didn't last long.
After Wiese's second-period tally,
the Illini drove 75 yards down the
field for their initial score. Jack
Weisenburger kicked off to Buddy
Young who returned the ball from
his five to his 25.
Julie Rykovich made a yard off
his own right tackle and Young
circled left end for another four to
the Illini 30. Russ Steger stumbled
through center for six more and it
was first down. On a quarterback
sneak Perry Moss pounded through
for nine yards and Steger found a
big hole off left tackle for eight more.
Moss Passes To Heiss
Stymied for two downs on the
Michigan 44 Illinois elected to pass.
Moss faded, couldn't find a receiver
and then with two Wolverine players
hanging onto his legs, the Illini
quarterback calmly lofted an aerial
to Bill Heiss who pulledit down. on
the Michigan 16 for a first down.
Paul Patterson then took over for
Coach Ray Eliot's men. The Illini
back dropped back to pass but de-
cided to run with the ball when he
couldn't find a receiver. It was 16
yards to the goal and Patterson
covered it all in a brilliant weaving
dash for the score. Don Maechtle
came in and booted the extra point
to deadlock the score at 7-7.
Zatkoff Intercepts
The two teams wound up the
second period battling it out be-
tween the 25-yard line stripes. Ry-
kovich booted off to open the third
stanza to Wiese who carried the
leather back 21 yards to the Michi-
gan 36. In between a pair of two-
yard bucks by Wiese, Chappuis flip-
ped the Maize and Blue fullback a
seven-yard pass to give the Wolver-
ines a first down on their own 47.
Chappuis then tossed an aerial in-
to the flat zone. Coming up fast
Illini end Sami Zatkoff pulled the
pigskin down, tucked it under his
arm and sped 52 yards to the Wol-
verine goal line. Maechtle's attempt-
ed conversion was blocked by Quent
Sickels, but the Illini had the lead
and they held on to it, throwing back
three fourth-quarter Wolverine
drives inside the Illinois 20-yard line.
Kick BlockedI
Michigan scored a safety when
Bruce Hilkene bulleted through to
block Dike Eddleman's fourth-period
kick attempt from his end zone. But
it was just an appetizer. The Wol-
verines took the ensuing kick-off
and marched right back to the Illi-
ni 9 where a pair of fumbles and a
goal line stand stopped the Michigan
attack cold.
Chappuis and Wiese were the Wol-
verine standouts. Chappuis gained

89 yards in 16 trips with the ball and
completed eight of 13 passes for 82
yards. His total of 171 yards was 20
yards better than the whole offensive

For homecoming fans who packed
the vast Michigan Stadium it was a
perfect day until the Illini stopped
the Maize and Blue's last chance to
win in the final seconds. The weath-
er, which had been unseasonably
good for the first four Saturdays,
was again ideal for football. The
band put ona spectacular show at
half time, and even the goal posts
were decked with ribbons. But the
partisan crowd was obviously very
disappointed at the final score.
*, * *
Yesterday's capacity throng of 85,-
938 established a new home at-
tendance record for the Stadium. It
was also the first time that the bowl
has been sold-out twice in one year.
With two more home games to play
the Wolverines will probably play to

Before game time a formation of
Navy planes from Grosse Isle roared
over the field forming an I and an
M. This was in celebration of to-
day, Navy Day.
Illinois' flashy halfback, Buddy
Young, was spilled hard for no gain
the first time he got the ball. Two
plays later, however, the "Ebony
Express" got loose around the end
for a first down, demonstrating the
speed which makes him such a feared
funner. That was the only time he
did turn the Michigan end, how-
One of the most razzle-dazzle
plays this season was that involv-
ing Chappuis to Mann and Weise.
Bob Chappuis ran up to the line
and then threw a jump pass to Bob
Mann. Bob Weise then took
Mann's lateral and was almost

away for six poiits. The play
gained 25 yards. Later in the
game the Wolverines successfully
pulled the same play. Incidentally
that was the extent of Michigan's
deception on offense.
* * *
Fumbles with the Maize and Blue
were all too common but the craziest
of all was recovered by Howie Yerges,
on the Illini six. Chappuis carried
the ball to the 15 and the ball then
popped into the air where it was
deflected by a paid of Illinois players
on the five. Yerges then outraced
Russ Steger for the ball, touching it
just before it rolled out of bounds.
As in the first four games Michi-
gan was the first team to score, with
Weise bulling over from the six. How-
ever, it took the Wolverines two pe-
riods to do it.

Coach Fritz Crisler kept his
starting line in for the entire first
period. Usually the Wolverines
have changed lines every few
minutes. The Illini line, which was
supposed to outweigh Michigan by
several pounds per man had only
a two pound advantage at the kick-
