DALLAS - (A') - Oklahoma's
slashing red shirts stormed on un-
defeated and untied with college
football's greatest wining streak
yesterday with a breathless, last-
minute 14-13 victory over Texas.
A low pass from center which
Bill Porter, back to kick in the
lengthening shadows of the Cot-
ton Bowl, could only fall on and
give the ball to Oklahoma on the
Texas 11-yard line was the decid-
ing point in the Sooners' magnifi-
cent victory that was their twenty-

BILLY VESSELS, keyman in the
lacerating ground game of the Ok-
lahomans dashed around right end
for a touchdown and Jim Weather-
all, the Texan who plays tackle
for the Sooners, kicked the extra
point that threw a crowd of 75,968
into pandemonium.
Minutes before, slender Bobby
Dillon, Texas' ace safety man,
had skittered 50 yards with an
intercepted pass to give Texas a
13-7 lead.
Only four minutes and five sec-
onds remained to play when Okla-
homa scored the winning touch-

Texas had 'em but they got
away. Twice the Longhorns
smashed within a bean-shooter's
distance of the Oklahoma goal
line. Once the powerful Sooners
piled up the Longhorn drive on
the one-foot line. Another time,
Texas lost the ball. on the five
with a fumble.
It was a rough, smashing game
fought between the two giant,
bone-crushing lines.
At game's end, mad Oklahomans
swarmed onto the field and up-
rooted the goal posts. Wooden
posts had been erected for the
special benefit of Oklahoma, which
is accustomed to tearing them
down in its conference.

Stonesifer Shocks
Gophers with Catches
EVANSTON, Ill. - (A) - Sky-
reaching end Don Stonesifer
speared a Big Ten record of 13
passes, including two touchdown
heaves, and winged unbeaten
Northwestern to a 13-6 triumph
over Minnesota's groundfast Gop-
hers yesterday.
Stonesifer, six-foot, 194-pound
Wildcat Captain, grabbed a five-
yard touchdown shot from quar-
terback Dick Flowers in the first
period and a 10-yard scoring Flo-
wers flip in the third quarter.

THAT WAS all the Wildcats
needed for their opening Big Ten
triumph and third straight verdict
of the season before 45,000 at
Dyche Stadium,
Minnesota, in staggering to its
third straight setback, had a 6-6
deadlock at halftime-a lot more
than the Gophers deserved.
Minnesota's touchdown came
on a 38-yard play. Fullback Gary
Johnson banged nine yards off
tackle, then flipped a lateral to
halfback Dick Gregory, who
streaked the rest of the way to
Stonesifer's glue-fingered affec-
tion for Flowers' sharp-shooting
produced 140 yards in his 13 grabs
which broke the previous confer-
ence single game record of six.
That also was set by a North-
western end, Max Morris, also
against Minnesota, in 1945. Mor-
ris' six catches covered 158 yards.
The running attacks of both
teams were erratic, although
210-pound Rich Athan of North-
western slashed big holes in the
behemoth Gopher line.
The tale of the game was in the
air. Flowers' passing bloomed into
19 completions, in 35 attempts, for
260 yards.

gan State College hit football's
comeback trail yesterday with a
sparkling 33 to 14 victory over a
dead-game but disabled William

The air and ground powerful
Michigan State team, playing be-
fore a Homecoming crowd of 35,-
656 fans, drove almost at will
through the Southerners' line.

ONLY IN the last period did the
visitors, both of whose scores were
set up by MSC bobbles, stiffen and
show an attack of their own, And
that was against a reserve-stud-
ded Michigan State team.
The hometown Spartans were
paced by the play of Left Half-
back Sonny Grandelius who
scored two of their five touch-
downs. Other' markers were
made by Jesse Thomas, Leroy
)rane and Don McAuliffe.
Honors for the visiting Indians
were claimed by Halfback Dickie
Lewis, who tallied on Ed Mag-
dziak's pass in the first period,
and End George Heflin, who grab-
bed Paul Yewcic's heave in the
final standza.

NEW ORLEANS - (A") - Not-
re Dame, her magnificant 39-game
unbeaten string snapped last week,
barely came back to victory yester-
day over fumbling Tulane, 13-9,
with short, staccato passes by Bob
Williams' fine and often great
passes set up the margin over a
Tulane team which lost repeated
chances to score during sags in
it's otherwise keyed up offensive.

THE TULANE line was the mas-
ter of the Irish forwards practi-
cally from beginning to end. The
big, slow line found speed and
ability it hasn't shown in earlier
games to blast Notre Dame's run-
ning game.
Late in the game Tulane's
Don. Brignac fumbled on Notre
Dame's three and Irishman
Jerry Groom recovered. A few
plays later Tulane agains fum-
bled after it worked up a power-
ful drive.

of the game with risky, wild foot-
ball but a brand that paid hand-
In six quick plays Tulane bolted
from its 36 to a touchdown which
shocked practically everybody.
Harold Waggoner did most of the
damage in the one minute 15 sec-
ond drive and George Kinek did
the scoring.
Kinek turned the Irish left end
for the score after a four yard
burst. Bill Bonar converted.

TULANE'S LEAD lasted seven
plays. Williams threw once to Jim
Mutscheller for 22 yards. Three
plays later Williams sent the ball
to John Pettibone for a 54 yard
gain and the score. Joe Caprara
kicked the tieing point.
After the flurry, a line battle de-
veloped with Tulane getting the
edge. Williams was rushed, and
overworked for a "T" quarterback
by the Big Green Wave's front
Three times in the first half
Tulane carried inside Notre
Dame's 25.

PRINCETON, N. J.-(J)-Chun-3
ky Jack Davidson and slender Dick
Kazmaier rallied Princeton yester-
day to defeat Navy's downtrodden
football team, 20 to 14, after the
Midshipmen led at the half 14-7.
Davison set up the decisive
touchdown in the fourth period
with the longest run of the day,
64 yards, and would have gone for
a score had not Bill Powers hauled
him down from behind on the
Navy 17-yard line.
Kazmaier passed to Bob Unger
for Princeton's first touchdown
and his sharp slants into the line
were a big factor in Princeton's
Princeton's victory, accomplish-
ed before 35,000 was its third of
the year and avenged Navy's un-
expected 1949 upset of Princeton
28-7. The defeat was Navy's third
in arow.

LAFAYETTE - (P) - A twisting
halfback, Frank Smith, scored
twice after dazzling runs yesterday
to lead the University of Miami
from Florida to a surprising defeat
of Purdue, 20-14.
The Hurricanes from the South
smeared the Purdue offense, which
Notre Dame couldn't stop last
week, and kept the Boilermakers
in the midfield a good part of the
only on a blocked punt and a 31-
yard pass.
Miami's other score came on a
surprjsing 53-yard run by guard
Joe Lyden, who scooped In a
blocked pass which bounced into
the air. End Leo Martin had
knocked the ball into the air as
Dale Samuels threw it.
Purdue's brilliant passing back,
Samuels, had a bad day as the vis-
itors intercepted six of the Purdue
IN SPITE of that, Purdue made
150 yards with 11 of 29 passes

Joe Hackett, the highly re-
garded Miami passer, did the
tossing for Miami, which neted
75 yards on eight completions of
18 tries.
Halfback Jim Dooley twice in-
tercepted, passes late in the game
to take the ball over the desperate
Purdue eleven.
THE GAME was a slashing,
hard-hitting one, and in the later
minutes was marked by fumbles.
The ball- changed hands seven
The strong Miami front wall
yielded in the center only a, few
times and frequently - broke
through to interfere with Pur-
due's plays before they could
get off,
But it was Smith who was the
big show, The 175-pound boy
from Tuckohoe, N.Y., piled up 135
yards In 14 tries.
PARTICULARLY effective was
the trap play which twice fooled
the Boilermakers-both times for

in a row.


THE MOST sensational run of
the day, however, was provided by
Thomas. He took a William and
Mary punt on his own 14 and
zoomed 86 yards to pay dirt.
The victory was particularly
sweet for the Spartans, who
were upset last week by Mary-
land, 34-7. Coach Biggie Munn
grabbed opportunity to try out
some of his sophomores in pre-
paration for Notre Dame two
weeks hence.
An expected duel between two
stellar ends, Bob Carey of MSC
and Vito Ragazzo of W & M, failed
to develop. Carey saw only limited
action due to a knee injury, but
kicked three of five conversions.
