Jayvees Clash with Buckeyes
Today on Ferry Field Gridiron

Michigan's Jayvee squad closes
its season of play this afternoon at
3:00 against Ohio State on Ferry
Field.
Coach George Ceithaml's brood,
which has intermittently shown
signs of brilliant play, will attempt
to reach an even record in the won
and lost columns.
Adverse weather conditions have
hampered the Jayvees in their last
two contests and they have been
able to cross the opponents' goal
line only three times.
Three Touchdowns
Two markers were enough to
defeat MSC's Jayvee squad two
weeks ago, but their one touch-
down against Wisconsin's "B"
team only served the purpose of
Wildcats Set
To Face Illini
Northwestern University's foot-
ball team, spurred by its fine per-
formance against Notre Dame last
week, will round out its 1947 cam-
paign against Illinois at Cham-
paign.
Northwestern's chance to upset
the favored Illini rest heavily on
the arm of Quarterback Don Bur-
son, and upon the running of
backs Frank Aschenbrenner, Art
Murakowski, and Tom Worthing-
ton.

eeping them from being white-
washed.
However, the Jayvees are aiming
or a repeat performance of their
last year's win over Ohio State's
"B" team. Although they trailed
at the half, Michigan's gridders
came back in the second half to
trounce the Ohioans 33-14.
The Ohio State eleven this year,
has a powerful squad and will not
be the pushover they were last
season. Although they barely
edged Northwestern last week 7-6,
they showed fine form.
The Jayvees hope for a break
from the elements in this after-
noon's contest, as they drilled on
perfecting their present plays and
strengthening their defense.
Irish To Meet
Green Wave
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 20-
(/')-The Notre Dame Irish held
their last hard drill of the week
today and were reported ready to
go against Tulane Saturday ex-
cept for Halfback Coy McGee and
Quarterback Roger Brown, out
with injuries.
The first and second lines
worked on defense against Tulane
plays run by the freshmen, and
the backfields worked against the
third string line.

Midgets Face
OSU in Title
Clash Tioday
There will be revenge in the
minds of the members at Michi-
gan's 150-pound football team as
they attempt to square things with'
Ohio State's lightweights in the
season finale this afternoon at Cc-
lumbus.
The Wolverines lone defeat of
the campaign came at the hands
of the Buckeyes earlier in the sea-
son when on rain-swept Ferry
Field, Ohio took advantage of sev-
eral Michigan miscues to win 13-2.
Championship At Stake
In the balance will be the mythi-
cal championship of the Western
Conference, OSU, Michigan, and
Wisconsin each having one defeat.
A win today would assure the
Wolverines of at least a tie for the'
title and should Wisconsin lose to
Illinois they would become sole
possessor of the crown.
Ohio's losstcame at the hands of
a Wisconsin eleven which Michi-
gan trounced last week 20-0.
Regulars Out
The Buckeyes just got past a
supposedly weak Illinois eleven
last week by a 13-7 count.
Coach Cliff Keen will again be
without the services of Johnny
Allrad and George Hurrell, two
first stringers who have been
plagued by injuries all season.
Brad McKee, starting end, will be
back in the lineup for this one
after missing the Wisconsin game
due to a leg injury.
The . "little Wolverines" will
again be forced to contend with
Ohio's use of the modified short-
punt formation which kept their
lines mystified during the first en-
counter in Ann Arbor.
Work On Defense
Coach Keen and his assistant
George Allen have concentrated
on defense, however, during this
week's practice and shouldbe well
prepared for the Ohio offensive.
The team will travel to Colum-
bus by bus, leaving this morning
and returning to Ann Arbor im-
mediately following the game.-
Thirty-five members of the squad
will make the trip.

Drills For OSU
Twelve Gridders Make
Last Home Appearance
Wolverines Aim at Thirteenth Straight Win;
Chappuis Shoots at Own Offensive Record

The University of Michigan
Marching Band spoke of it in song
en nearby Ferry Field and the
numerous spectators at yesterday's
practice session were talking of it
throughout most of the afternoon,
but to Coach "Fritz" Crisler and
his Wolverine charges the Rose
Bowl game did not exist. Instead
the coming game with Ohio State
this Saturday was the game of the
year as far as the squad was con-
cerned.
The Michigan team went
through its final heavy scrim-
mage workout of the week and
executed Crisler's brand of de-
ceptive ball handling with the
same intensity that has carried
them to twelve successive vic-
tories. Plays that had routed
Wisconsin last week received as
much attention as several new
plays that might see action
against the Buckeyes.-
If there is any attitude on the
part of the Wolverines to regard"
the Ohio State game as a neces-
sary schedule requirement it was
not evident during yesterday's!
workout. The team worked more
as a squad attempting to set the
stage for an upset rather than a
team that has just won the .West-
ern Conference title.
The 85,400 fans who watch
Michigan go for its thirteenth

straight victory will also be wit-
nessing the final Big Nine ap-
pearance of twelve Wolverine
players. Bob Chappuis, Jack
Weisenberger, Hank Fonde and
Howard Yerges will appear for
the last time before a crowd in
the Michigan Stadium in the
role of Wolverine backfield stars.
Playing their last home game in
the Michigan forward wall are
Bill Pritula, Bob Mann, Lennie
Ford and J. T. White.
In addition to these players
Michigan fans will watch Coach
Crisler ' point after touchdown
ace, Jim Brieske attempt to set a
modern record for successful con-
versions in this last Conference
game. Saturday's game against the
Buckeyes will be the last for three
Michigan substitutes, George
Johnson, Kurt Kampe and George
SKiesel.
Besides being the last Ann Ar-
bor appearance for many of Mich-
igan's standout players, the Ohio
State game will have many other
interesting aspects. Several rec-
ords will be at stake when the two
teams come on the field. Jim Brie-
ske is lacking but six conversions to
set a modern record for point after
touchdowns and Bob Chappuis can
better or equal his last year's con-
ference high of 1,077 yards gained
by passing and rushing.

Michigan's sure - footed Jim
Brieske will be aiming at a new
modern place-kicking record in
intercollegiate football when his
Rose Bowl-bound mates tackle
Ohio State here tomorrow after-
noon.
The present record for conver-
sions, dating from 1937, when the
National Collegiate Athletic Bu-
reau began compiling statistics
is 47, shared by Dick Walterhouse
of Army and George Jernigan of,
Georgia.
Brieske has connected safely
in 42 out of 47 conversion at-1
tempts this year. His most pro-I
lific total in a single game was
when he hit nine out of 10
against Pitt, while his lowest
mark was the one point he reg-
istered in the 13-6 conquest of
Minnesota. He had a perfect
seven for seven against both
Stanford and Northivestern.
Actually, the all-time record for
points after touchdown seems to
be 61, made by Ivan Henry Grone
of Kendall College (now Okla-
homa City University) in 1916.

Grone's achievement is to be
found in the records of Ray Byrne
II, appearing in the Football Rec-
ord and Rule Book, published in
1945, by C. C. Spink and Son.
F. P. Geyer made 56 for Ok-
lahonmaUniversity in 1916 and
the late Navy Bill Ingram is
credited with 48 in 1917. In 1920,
Red Weaver, pal of Bo McMillin
and All-American center at
Centre College, made 53 con-
versions after getting 47 the
previous season.
Brieske's chances of bettering
the modern Walterhouse-Jernigan
mark depends entirely upon Mich-
igan's touchdown pace against the
Buckeyes.
Michigan is being rated a 35-
point favorite over Ohio State by
the professional odds - makers.
Maybe the bookies have tremen-
dous faith in Brieske's golden toe,
apparently aware that the, Wol-
verine center from Harbor Beach,
Mich., needs only 6 extra points
to set a new college place-kicking
mark.j

mighty Michigan. Healthy vote for
Southern Cal.
SOUTHERN METHODIST vs.
BAYLOR-A confident vote for
Southern Methodist.
TULANE vs. NOTRE DAME-
For the second time this season,
the unbeaten ' Irish have been
pushed out of the No. 1 spot in
the national rankings for failure
to live up to expectations. They'll
be trying to scramble back against
a Tulane team that has won only
two games. As usual, Notre Dame.
LOUISIANA STATE vs. ALA-
BAMA-Thiee cheers and a big
vote for Alabama.
OLIO STATE vs. MICHIGAN-
Look for the Wolverines to pull
out all the stops in this one, their
last appearance of the regular sea-
son, and carry a perfect, as well
as awesome, record to Pasadena.
Michigan.
PENN STATE vs. PITTS-
BURGh-Here's where the Nit-
tany Lions complete a perfect sea-j
son and avenge last year's 14-7
deeat with a shower of touch-
downs. Not much chance for an
upset. Penn State.
RICE vs. TEXAS CHRISTIAN-
Mark it down for Rice.
NORTH CAROLINA vs. DUKE
-North Cairolina.
OKLAHOMA vs. NEBRASKA-
The Sooners need this one to
clinch a tie for the Big Six crown
and, after drubbing Missouri,
should get it. Oklahoma.
MISOURI vs. KANSAS-Kansas
can clinch a Big Six tie here, but
the winner will be the undisputed
champion if Oklahoma loses. Kan-
sas.
SYRACUSE vs. COLUMBIA-
The Lions will be shooting for
their fifth win in a row. Columbia.
CALIFORNIA vs. STANFORD- I
The Golden Bears clinging to a
chance for a title tie. California.
Running rapidly over the rest
of the better weekend games:
SATURDAY-East: Yale over
Harvard, Princeton over Dart-
mouth. Midwest: Wisconsin over
Minnesota, Illinois over North -
western, Purdue over Indiana, De-
troit over Tulsa, Cincinnati over
Butler, John Carroll over Akron,
Niagai'a over Valpairaiso, Ohio
Wesleyan over Oberlin, Xavier
over Ohio University, Oklahoma
City over Baldwin-Wallace.
