Thirteen Wolverines End
'M' Careers in Grid Finale
By PRES HOLMES
One of the wackiest seasons inConference history ends this after-
' noon, and what a finish it is!
The schedule makers couldn't have done a better job if they had
set up the games just this week. After eight hectic Saturdays of un-
predictable football Michigan and Ohio State are barreling neck and
neck down the home stretch and battle it out at 2:00 this afternoon for
" ;s' the Big Nine Championship.
FOR THIRTEEN Wolverines it will be their last game of college
football. Most of them have been around the past two years helping
Michigan take two straight Conference titles, and want more than
anything to help make it three in a row.
The outcome of this afternoon's contest, barring a tie of
course, will decide the winner of the blue ribbon for 1949.
