THE BEST LAID PLANS-Coach Ray Eliot and Captain Herb S cgert, (center, above) who lead Illinois into Ann Arbor today, are
discussing how to go through, over, or around the nation's number one team. Although right guard Siegert may not come into
.contact with Stu Wilkins, Michigan's offensive right guard, or two bulwarks of the Wolverines' defense, tackles Al Wistert and Al Wahl;
it is sure that he will see plenty of fullback Tom Peterson before going home. The Michigan players, left to right, are Peterson, Wistert,
Wahl and Wilkins.

A fighting tribe of Illini will set seige to Michigan stadium
this afternoon for a homecoming skirmish with the impregnable
Wolverines before an overflow gathering of 85,973.
The last time the men from Champaign set foot on the battle-
grounds of Ann Arbor they went home with eleven scalps and a 13-9
upset victory over the highly favored Maize and Blue.
Unbeaten since that time the Wolverines will again be heavy
favorites . . . and again the Redmen will be on the warpath with
,he glint of upset in their eyes.
It was that Illinois victory exactly two years ago that de-
railed the Wolverines on their trim to the Rose Bowl and put the
Orange and Blue in the big New Year's day contest.
Again last season the fighting Illini fought with their backs to
the wall against almost insurmountable odds to give the Crislermen
one of the toughest battles of the year. The Wolverines came out ozl
top, but by a slim one touchdown margin.
THE REDMEN are back in Ann Arbor today looking for more
trouble, and, despite only a mediocre record, they aren't acting like
a team that expects to be conquered.
However, Ben Oosterbaan's unbeaten Wolverines, riding on the
crest of a 19 game winning streak, haven't been taking the advent
of the challenging Illini lying down.
ALTHOUGH A LETDOWN has been predicted by many of the
nation's scribes, practice sessions this week have revealed the Ann
Arborites to be in peak condition.
The spirit and determination has been nothing short of
superb, and they definitely aren't acting like a team that's
going to be beaten by anyone.
The Wolverines are up for this one and with the return to active
duty of halfback Gene Derricotte they could well turn in their best
performance of the year.
IT SHOULD BE A bitter, hard fought battle all the way with
the Wolverines depending mainly on speed and deception, the Illini
on a sturdy defense.
In 1946 the Illinois line three times held the desperate Mich-
igan offensive within their 20 yard line, and last year only a
long punt return by Bump Elliott gave Michigan the margin of
To crack the vaunted Illini defense that held Minnesota and
Purdue both to six points each on successive Saturdays, Coach
Oosterbaan will depend on the old stand-by backfield of Chuck
Ortmann and Leo Koceski at the halfback positions, Pete Elliott at
quarterback and Tom Peterson at the fullback slot.
ALTHOUGH GENE DERRICOTTE will probably see only scat-
tered action on offense today, he will be a valuable addition to the
squad in the performance of his duties as safety man.
He was considered among the best in the country at that spot
Among the other chief offensive threats will be the Wol-
verines top candidate for All-American honors, Dick Rifenburg,
whose phenomenal pass-catching ability and high spirits on the
practice field have been instrumental in the surprising success
of the Wolverines.
Coach Ray Eliot of the Illini will have some mighty potent ma
terial of his own to throw at the front-running Wolverines.
