mud like the proverbial duck to

the little Big Nine championship.l
Playing on a field so deep in
mud that a second grade sandlot
team would have passed it by, the,
little Wolverines marched for three
fir~st half touchdowns to down a
hapless Ohio State eleven 20-0.
The win gave Michigan a final
record of three wins against one
loss and climaxed a season-long
uphill battle to tie Wisconsin
for the Conference crown.
It was a dismal beginning to
this Ohio homecoming weekend.
The Buckeye midgets were up for
this one and despite their record
of no wins and three losses they
had high hopes of springing an

took the Wolverines exactly ten
plays to score their first first half
touchdown of the season.
Jerry Burns, who was easily
the outstanding man on the field
all day, faded back from the
Ohio 33 and flipped a 10-yard
pass to end Johnny Picard who
went the rest of the way to put
the Wolverines ahead. Wilcox
Three plays later Burns inter-

The Wildcats emerged from their
12-7 setback by Notre Dame last
Saturday in fine mental fettle, al-
though somewhat banged up phys-
ically. Two regulars, tackle Steve
Sawle and end Chuck Hagmann,
will ride the bench with injuries
sustained against the Irish.
Northwestern was well pleased
in giving Notre Dame its hardest
battle of the season, so much so
that Illinois hopes the Wildcats
will be lulled into over-confidence
