MADISON, Wis. - VIP) -Minne-
sota's massive Gophers crushed
Wisconsin, 16-0, yesterday on a
wet, slippery field in the Western
Conference football finale for both
teams before 45,000 fans.
The Gophers, rambling as they
pleased, scored twice in the second
quarter and added a field goal in
the third. They lost two other
touchdowns, both on long runs,
when the plays were recalled by
penalties.
THE VICTORY left Minnesota
a half-game out of the running
for the Rose Bowl bid as North-
western whipped Illinois, 20-7, and
wound up the campaign with a 5-1
record. Minnesota lost twice in
e, seven starts.
Wisconsin, winding up a dis-
mal year with only one Big Nine
victory in six starts, never had
a chance. The Badgers spent the
first 57 minutes of the, game in
their own territory-and then
got only two yards over the mid-
field stripe with three mniutes
to play.
A slick forward-lateral pass
counted the first Gopher marker.
The play, starting on Wisconsin's
35-yard lind following a punt,
1 opened with a short pass from
Billy Bye to Harry Grant and
closed with a lateral to Stan
Thiele who went the last 10 yards.
FOUR PLAYS later Minnesota
was back again, Ken Beiersdorf
crashing over tackle for 37 yards
x and the score. Gordon Soltau, who
missed the conversion after the
first touchdown, booted success-
fully for a 13-0 halftime lead.
EVANSTON, Ill.- () - North-
western's Rose Bowl Express, gath-
ering steam . behind a great
running attack made just a whistle
stop out of Illinois yesterday.
The Wildcats of young coach
Bob Voigts rolled to a 20-7 tri-
umph over the Illini, their last
hurdle en route to Pasadena
and the New Year's Day classic.
Northwestern all but cinched the
trip, which must be formally ap-
proved by'the Big Nine conference.
It closed the regular campaign
with a 5-1 league record for sec-
ond place and a season mark of
7-2.
MICHIGAN is ineligible to re-
turn to the Rose Bowl under the
} Big Nine-Pacific Coast pact =after
making a victorious appearance
last season.
A chilled capacity crowd of

48,000 in Dyche Stadium cheered
Northwestern to its triumphal
finale over a traditional confer-
ence foe pent-up for a costly
upset. The Wildcats zipped 71
yards in eight plays for a first
quarter touchdown and turned
a pair of breaks into tyo more
counters in the second period to
lead, 20-0 at halftime.
Northwestern's quarterback, Don
Burson, attempted only two passes
in the brisk winds which swept the
gridiron. He overshot one receiver
then much later speared Joe Zur-
avleff, whose broken arm is in a
cast, for a 23-yard touchdown in
the second quarter.
THE SCORING PLAY was set
up when Illinois was penalized 15
yards for clipping after taking a
kickoff, eventually gaining the ball
on its own one-yard line. Dike
Eddleman's punt against the wind
went only 34 yards-he averaged
44.8 for the game-and Peewee
Day returned it to the 23. Then
Burson flipped.
One minute prior to the touch-
down pass, Northwestern had
punched its second tally on one
of those one-in-a-season flukes.
Illinois, behind sizzlin' Sam
Piazza's 34-yard run, had rammed
to the Northwestern 37. From
there, Bernie Krueger's short pass
was juggled in midair by Russ
Steger. Day jumped up and stole
it, churned five yards then la-
teraled to end Chuck Hagmann.
Hagmann, a big bruiser who has
been nursing a leg injury, forgot
about his troubles long enough to
gallop 65 yards to score.
THE WILDCATS, who out-
rushed Illinois 239 yards to 149,
looked at their best in the 71-yard
first quarter payoff surge. Frank
Aschenbrenner, spe.edy halfback,
touched it off with a 17-yard
sprint and capped it with a 23-
yard scoring scamper off tackle
as Eddie Nemeth threw a key
block.
Jim Farrar, after missing the
first conversion, booted the two
other extra points.

EAST LANSING, Mich.-(P)-
Michigan State's spirited Spar-
tans, rolling almost at will on the
ground, closed their home football
season before 36,045 fans yester-
day with an impressive 40 to 0
rout cf Washington State.
Although three Spartan touch-
downs were called back for pen-
alties, Michigan State hit the
40-point mark for the fourth
straight time with three scores
in the opening period and three
more in the last half.

pass and handed the ball off to
Pete Elliott who faded and passed
to Koceski on the 23 yard line.
Elliott stepped in and passed to
Allis on the Buckeye 11.
After Koceski had taken a re-
verse to the 10, Teninga faded
back to pass. He saw no one
clear and slithered through a
host of Scarlet-clad tacklers all
the way to the three-yard stripe.
From there Peterson bulled his
way over and even though Allis'
kick was no good, the ball game
was as good as in the bag.
Ohio tried to strike back through

BERKELEY, Calif.-(P)-Cali-
fornia's Bears squeezed by an in-
spired Stanford football team, 7-
6, yesterday to keep their Rose
Bowl chances alive.
While more than 80,000 fans
gripped their seats in excitement
during a thrill-filled game, the
big Bears, 6-1 favorites and ex-
pected to win by 20 or more
points, fought their toughest
battle of the season.
The game started out as if to
run true to predictions that the
Bears would run over Stanford.
The Bears received the kickoff.
They marched 59 yards for the
score. Fullback Jack Jensen, mak-
ing an impressive bid for All-
American honors, was the big
punch in the touchdown drive. He
slashed off the tackles and end
for gains of 18 and 16 yards, re-
spectively, then Jack Swaner
scored.
The Indians made good in the
third period, when fullback Bill
De Young recovered Jensen's
fumble on California's 22-yard
line. Three plunges at the line
put the oval 11 yards from the
goal. Sophomore quarterback
Tom Shaw connected with a
jump pass over the line to right
end Ken Rose. The latter pound-
ed five yards, dragging a couple
of Bears with him.
The play that cost Stanford a
tie followed. Quarterback Aubrey
Devine, a left-footed kicker, prac-
ticed placements this week in an
effort to bolster the Indians in

this department. But the ball
slithered off his foot, and the
team that was supposed to lose by
several touchdowns trailed. 7-6.
LAWRENCE, Kas. - ({P) - A
mighty and magnificent Univer-
sity of Oklahoma football team
clinched the Big Seven Conference
football championship today by
swamping Kansas, 60 to 7. The
Sooners' fleet backs, operating be-
hind a mechanical blocking line,
reeled off nine touchdowns.
Some 40,000 fans, one of the
biggest gatherings in Big Seven
history, watched the Sooners
bullaoze their. way to one of
the most decisive victories in
modern Big Seven football his-
tory. It was their twelfth league
game without defeat, their
eighth successive triumph of the
season, and their fifth and final
victory in the conference for
1948.
Scoring as they pleased, the
Sooners found the east t~urf to
their liking and struck for three
touchdowns in each of the first
and second quarters, one in the
third and two in the fourth.
Even the Bowl Scouts, report-
edly in the stands, must have
marvelled at the vicious and ac-
curate blocking-in the line and
down field-of coach Bud Wil-
kinson's Oklahoma powerhouse.
The Sooners shook halfback
Darrell Royal loose for a 73-yard
punt return. They mopped up the
Kansas resistance as quarterback
Jack Mitchell chalk-walked the
west side line 63 yards on a punt
run-back. Mitchell stood dead
still at the 50, barked directions
to his blockers, then ran the last
50 untouched.

STILLWATER, Okla. - (P) -
Striking through the air for four
of its six touchdowns, the Okla-
homa A & MV Cowboys passed over
Kansas State's Wildcats 42-6 here
yesterday before 12,000 spectators.
THE OKLAHOMANS cut loose
all four touchdowns in the first
quarter. They toyed with the Kan-
sas team the rest of the contest.
Coach Jim Lookabaugh used his
reserves after that first period.
Kansas State was outplayed in
all departments but scratched in
the third quarter on one of the
neatest runs of the contest. With
the Wildcats on their 39, Ken-
ney Johnston took the ball and
ran three yards, then lateraled
to Ross Estes who ran through
the Oklahoma A & M secondary
to the goal.
Six Aggies scored with Jack
Hartman passing for two of the
touchdowns.
LOS ANGELES-(/P)-Southern
California's Trojans and the
Bruins of UCLA fought a bitter
cross town rivalry yesterday and
the favored Troys ground out a
20 to 13 football triumph before
76,577 wildly excited followers.
The loss was UCLA's seventh
this season, and wound up their
1948 campaign. The Trojans
have one more game ahead, with
Notre Dame here Dec. 4. A keen
onlooker was the Irish coach,
Frank Leahy.
In the second quarter, Southern
Cal took the lead as halfback

PHILADELPHIA- (UP) - After
fencing around for the-first. half,
Holy Cross exhibited some very
fancy ball passing in the final two
periods to score a 13-7 victory over
Temple yesterday at Temple Sta-
dium before 5,000. It was the fifth
win of the year for Dr. Bill Os-
manski's squad.
LITTLE ROCK - (J)-Even a
guard got into the scoring act
as the Arkansas Razorbacks
crushed winless Tulsa University
55 to 18 in a wild football game
before 18,000 yesterday.
The Razorbacks, operating
without their injured star, Clyde
Scott, mixed razzle-dazzle with
the single wing attack to parade
to paydirt in every quarter. The
game was such an offensive
show that there wasn't a punt
until late in the third period.
Guard Frank Lambright made a
touchdown when he grabbed a
Tulsa fumble in the air and ran
21 yards untouched.
Arkansas converted two Tulsa
fumbles into an early 14-0 lead
and increased it to 28-12 at the
half.

Pierce Sought
As Fans Howl
DETROIT-(A)-A howl from
Tiger baseball fans has prompted
the Detroit American League club
to try to buy back Billy Pierce,
young left handed pitcher traded
to the White Sox.
Pierce went to the White Sox
in a straight trade for Aaron Rob-
inson, veteran catcher.
But Detroit fans rebelled
against losing the home grqwn
'Billy so the Tiger management is
making cash offers to the Chicago
club to get him back. So far, the
White Sox have shown no inclina-
tion to sell Pierce back to the
Bengals.
