Wildcats and Golden Bears
Tangle in Rose Bowl Clash

Wolverines Fight Of f Ins pired
Buckeyes to Keep Slate Clean

PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 22--P
-It's California's Golden Bears
versus Northwestern's Wildcats in'
the Rose Bowl New Year's Day,
and a golden opportunity for Cal.'s
coach Lynn (Pappy) Waldorf to
teach his old school new tricks.
The faculty fathers of the Big
Nine and, Pacific Coast confer-
ences made their selections today
for the 35th edition of the Tour-
nament of Roses football game-
the sire of all bowl events.
The coast representative will
be California, coached to an un-
defeated 10-game season by
Waldorf, who used to ply his
trade at Northwestern. Pappy
made the Rose Bowl in his sec-
ond year at Cal.
It will be master versus pupil,
too. Northwestern, which won
seven of its nine games, is coached
by young Bob Voigts, a Wildcat
tackle under Waldorf in the late
The Jan. 1, 1949, version pits
one of the two best teams in the
Big Nine against one of the top
two in the Coast Conference.
There was never much doubt
4 about the selection of Northwest-
ern. Big Nine Commissioner K. L.
(Tug) Wilson announced the
Wildcats were a unanimous choice,
despite finishing second in the

league race. Champion Michigan,
which whipped Southern Cali-
fornia, 49-0, in the 1948 Rose fra-
cas, was prevented from return-
ing by conference agreement.
But California, which shared
the Coast title with Oregon, ap-
parently had quite a ballot
battle with the Webfoots for the
right to enter on the ground
floor of the 93,000-capacity sau-
cer in picturesque Arroyo Seco.
PCC Commissioner Victor 0.1
Schmidt declined to give the
breakdown of the final tally, but'
did admit that the votes came in
slowly indicating at least several
of the 10 faculty representatives
were weighing the issues carefully.
Both Oregon and California
werehundefeated in conference
play, but the Webfoots lost one
non-league game to Michigan 14-
0, while the Golden Bears went
through their full 10-game slate
without tarnish.
Northwestern lost only to
mighty Michigan, 28-0, and Notre
Dame, 12-7.,
"I'm very happy for California
and our squad," Waldorf said,
"that we were selected to repre-
sent the Coast Conference. . .. It
is a great responsibility and we
accept it as such. We shall do our
best to win."

Bennie Oosterbaan's mighty
Wolverines showed that they de-
served to be ranked with the great
Michigan teams of the past as
they fought off a tremendously
inspired Ohio State eleven for its
second straight undefeated season.
They had to be great to win that
game for if any team was "up" for
a game, it was the Buckeyes. Their
spirit and fight surpassed that of
any team that Michigan faced this
No, Michigan didn't roll over
Ohio like they had over Purdue,
Navy and Indiana, but they had it
when they needed it and that was
what counted. For the third time

this season they came from behind
to win.
ON THE GROUND, the Wolver-
ines were far from their best and
their aerial game was not at its
peak, but when they had to score,
they did.
Michigan's defensive team had
played better games, but when
the Buckeyes threatened the
Wolverine goal line, the defense
stiffened and the Ohioans met
the fate of so many of Michi-
gan's other opponents, they went
Early in the game, the Bucks re-
covered a misdirected Michigan
lateral and found themselves with
a first down on the Wolverine
eight. Three plays later, they were
on the 16 and had todsettle for a
field goal on fourth down.
Again in the second and third
periods,, the Buckeyes had the ball
deep in Michigan territory, but on
each occasion ran into a stone wall
and were stopped.
Subbing for the injured Chuck
Ortmann, Wally Teninga proved
his claim to the "most underrated
player of the year" title, when he
passed and ran Michigan into po-
sition for its second touchdown.
HE COMPLETED a 26 yard
aerial to Leo Koceski on the Ohio
36 and then set up another pass to
Koceski on the 23. Two more
plays found the Wolverines on the
Buckeye 10. Again Teninga faded

to pass, but seeing his potential re-
ceivers covered and a clear field to
his right he ran beautifully to the
three yard line. From there Pet-
erson bucked for the TD.
Sophomore and Harry Allis
nailed down the Big Nine scor-
ing championship and showed
that he'd be a force to reckon
with next season as he picked up
seven points on Michigan's first
touchdown and the conversion.
Allis took Ortmann's long pass
and spinning away from two po-
tential tacklers sped 14 yards for
the score.
