Thirty-six of Bennie Ooster-

from their airliner yesterday eve-

Alto, California.
Tomorrow afternoon the Wol-

a total of 93 points against their
opponents while no one has been
able to cross the Indian goal line.
The Cardinal and White
smothered San Jose State, 49-0
in their season opener and fol-
lowed up by defeating the crim-
son of Harvard 44-0.
The Indians lost some tough
games last season but this year
most of the veterans are back. The

roster lists twenty-two lettermen
on the 1949 squad.,
THE FRESHMAN team last
year went through undefeated and
nineteen of these boys are on this
year's varsity. Headlining the cast
of youngsters are quarterback
Gary Kerkorian, touted as the
finest passer at the school since
pre-war days, and end Bill Mc-
Coll, a six foot, four-inch pass-
catching genius.
Harry Hugasian, 180 pound
star running back for the 1948
freshman team is a fine all
around player. Clever, fast and
elusive, Harry was instrumental
in running up high scores
against Harvard and San Jose
State.
There is another factor which
may count in Stanford's favor.
This is that in meeting Harvard
which is coached by Art Valpey,
the Indians have already had a
taste of the Michigan style of
football.
But it must be remembered that
the Wolverines are defending a
streak of 24 victories and after
last week's close call against Mich-
igan State, will be taking no
chances.

STANFORD, HERE WE COME!-The Michigan Wolverines, 36 strong, plus coaches and sportswriters,
left the Willow Run Airport at 11:25 yesterday morning. They flew via two United Airlines 300 Main-
liners and arrived in Oakland non-stop at 5:15 last night, Pacific Coast time. The mighty Wolverines
will be going after their 25th consecutive victory when they engage an unbeaten and unscored-on
Stanford eleven at Palo Alto tomorrow afternoon. The game is rated by the experts as the number
one grid battle in the nation. In preparation for the game Michigan, under the able leadership of
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan, stressed offensive tactics in their scrimmages this week.

Michigan 14. Stanford 7-On
the distinct upgrade, Stanford )
still lacks the guns to scuttle the
Big Ten defending champions.
Michigan's close, 7-3 scrape past
Michigan State was the spur the |
Wolverines needed to do some ser-
ious concentrating on their 24-
game winning streak.
Wisconsin 14, Illinois 12-This
will be snug despite the Badgers'
opeing romp over Marquette
(our shattered Blue Plate Spe-
cial), and the Illini tie with a
sound Iowa State club. Figure
Illinois to be tougher with vet-
eran ends Tony Klimek and
Walt Kersulis off the crippled
list.
Ohio State 24, Indiana 12-An-
other Big Ten league opener for
both teams. A Hoosier eleven
which battled Notre Dame on even
terms for the first half has plenty
of spunk, but not enough depth.
The Buckeye dipsy-doo with Mis-
souri (35-34) emphasized that
Wes Fesler has scoring punch. It
was enough of a scare to tighten
Ohio's defense for Indiana. 3
Michigan State 28, Marquette
0-The Hilltoppers won't even
recover from that 41-0 pasting
by Wisconsin. The Spartans, on
the other hand, lost little or no
prestige in the loss to Michigan.
They'll bring a good record to
the Nov. 5 meeting with Notre
Dame.
Purdue 18, Iowa 12 - Harry
Szulborski will be back in the
Boilermaker saddle. His running
should make the difference in a
snappy struggle between two
teams whose opening defeats were-
n't as one-sided as the scores read.

By AUSTIN BEALMEAR
Having led off last week with a
batting average of .836 on 46 cor-
rect guesses and nine misses, we
hustle right into the second edi-
tion of the 1949 football forecast
letting the upsets fall where they
may:
Michigan vs. Stanford-This
could be the end of that long
Michigan winning streak. But
don't count on it. Michigan
barely squeaked past Michigan
State last week while Stanford
was flattening Harvard. The
Harvards arent in the same class
with Michigan State, though.
Chalk this one up as number 25
for Michigan.
Illinois vs. Wisconsin - Our
Western Conference spies tell us
to forget Illinois 20-20 tie with
Iowa State, which is what Illinois
would like to do. This likely will
be close. Out of the hat, Wiscork-
sin.
Georgia Tech vs. Tulane ---
Tech's surprising 12-7 triumph
over what was supposed to be a
feared Vanderbilt team sets this
I up as about the best attraction
of Saturday's card. Now that it
has disposed of Alabama rather
neatly, Tulane isn't likely to be
stopped until it runs into Notre
Dame, if then. One confident
vote for Tulane.
Purdue over Iowa, Ohio State
over Indiana, Minnesota over Ne-
braska, Michigan State over Mar-
quette, Iowa State over Kansas,
Colorado over Kansas State, Flor-
ida over Tulsa, Drake over Brad-
ley, Cornell over Colgate, Navy
over Princeton, Vanderbilt over
Alabama, and Harvard over Co-
lumbia.
