CHICAGO-(A)-The Big Ten's
madcap football season, far from
finished, already has produced
eight new individual and two team
records for single-game perform-
ances. In addition, three Confer-
ence individual marks and two
team marks have been matched.
Ohio State's 83-21 romp over
Iowa and the 7-7 tie between
Michigandand Minnesota last Sat-
urday caused the latest revision
of the record book.
VIC JANOWICZ, Ohio State's
versatile back, notched two indi-
vidual marks with his 11 conver-
sion attempts and 10 successful
tries in the massacre of Iowa. A
negative record was established as
Michigan's Chuck Ortmann was
nailed for a minus 38 yards rush-
ing against Minnesota.
Ohio State's 12 touchdowns
against the Hawkeyes set a
modern team record. Another
new team mark was Michigan's
11 first downs by passing against
Minnesota. The Buckeyes' 11
conversions against Iowa match-
ed a league record.
Previous new individual marks
were set by Indiana's Lou D'Ach-
ille, Northwestern's Don Stonesifer
and Johnny Miller and Minneso-
ta's Don Roedel. D'Achille tossed
the longest scoring pass, 91 yards,
against Iowa, Oct. 7, and had the
most passing tries, 38, against
Ohio Oct. 14.
* * *
STONESIFER'S 13 receptions
and Miller's six punt returns
against Minnesota Oct. 14, and
Roedel's 473 yards on 11 punts
against Ohio State Oct. 21 are
other new marks.
Record-tying individual per-
formances include D'Achille's 20
completed passes and total plays
49 (11 rushing and 38 passing)
against Ohio State, and three
pass interceptions for 102 yards
by Wisconsin's Ed Withers
against Iowa Oct. 14.
The other single-game team
mark equalled came as Indiana
completed 20 passes against Ohio

Daily Sports Editor
FT TAKES A LOT of planning to sandwich in a trip to Pasadena,
California between a rapidly-approaching Christmas holiday and
the resumption of classes here on January 8, 1951.
Whether the plans of numerous football fans in old Ann
Arbor town-to follow a Michigan team westward come next Jan-
uary first-may be given a chance to materialize will probably be
decided this Saturday afternoon, when the Wolverines collide with
a fast-moving Illinois team, deisel-driven by the Argo Express,
Johnny Karras.
Entering the game with a conference record of one win and one
tie, the Michigan aggregation rates as the only team beside the be-
wildering Buckeyes of Ohio State with a horsecollar in the loss col-
umn. Each other Big Ten team has by now lost at least one game
to a Conference opponent.
SHOULD THE WOLVERINES upset the favored Illini this week,
it is conceivable that they can go on to beat Indiana, Northwestern,
drop the season finale to the not-to-be-denied Buckeyes and still earn
the right to hit the trail for sunny-Cal. next December. The ram-
paging Ohio Staters have averaged better than 50 points per Con-
ference contest, and thereby rank as a natural to defend successfully
the Big Ten co-championship which they now share with Michigan.
The Buckeyes, along with Northwestern, however, will not be
up for consideration when the time comes to vote for the team to
represent the Western Conference in the annual New Year's Clas-
sic. A now grey-bearded agreement worked out between the Big
Ten and Pacific Coast Conference stipulates that no Western
Conference university shall sent a team more than once in three
years, regardless of the number of championships its team chalks
up in that time.
The Buckeyes and Wildcats, by having appeared in 1950 and
'49, respectively, are thereby ineligible. Curiously enough, Michigan
and Illinois are the only teams which can possibly appear twice under
the present five-year contract which ends this year.
Illinois earned the right to initiate the series by beating the
Wolverines, 13-9, in '46 and Michigan rode out to Pasadena on
the crest of a National Championship at the conclusion of the
memorable '47 season.
Saturday's game between the Illini and Wolverines will appropri-
ately determine which of the two teams shall be eliminated from the
possibility of appearing twice within the five-year duration of the
almost-expired contract.
MICHIGAN AND ILLINOIS are certainly not the only two teams
with a chance of appearing in the Rose Bowl of 1951, however. The
status and prospects of Big Ten teams, with Conference won-lost
records in parathensis is:

But though theserproclivities

still the focus of the Michigan at-

right arm and hands which can
control the gyrations of a football

Perry, the receiving end of
the passing combination, was
naturally blessed with a pair
of large and quick hands, and
puts those native assets to good

Peterson Big Question Mark
In 'M' Right Halfback Problem

From this, it would appear as if only Ohio State, North-
western, Iowa and Minnesota are playing without visions of the
Golden Gate in mind.
Both the Buckeyes and the Wildcats are in a position to voice
a loud opinion concerning from which point in the midwest the tickets
for the California trip will be purchased.
It is likewise significant that the only two teams not eligible to
play in the Bowl are strategically placed on the schedules of the teams
striving diligently to earn that right.

The name of Peterson has been
synonomous with versatiltity in re-
cent history of Wolverine football.
Tom Peterson was known around
the circuit for the 1948 and '49
seasons as one of the hardest hit-
ting and most courageous fullbacks
in the Western Conference. It looks
like brother Don will have to fol-
low in his eldest sibling's footsteps
this Saturday against the Illini.
THE YOUNGER Peterson is cur-
rently the topic of much concerted
discussion in Michiga grid coach-
ig confabs this week. With the
injury to Leo Koceski and Soph
Frank Howell, the wingback spot
is lacking in a polished operator1
like Peterson.
However, Bennie Oosterbaan

and his associates are reluctant
to make the switch, preferring to
stay for the immediate present
at least, with inexperienced Don
Oldham who got his first taste
of fire in the Minnesota fracas.
The controversy revolves around
the fact that Peterson is the only
able replacement for tailback
Chuck Ortmann who has shown
recurrent injuries this season and
who can easily be benched again
due to another mishap.
The need for Peterson in the
wingback slot is pressing due to
the fact that with the injury of
Koceski and Howell, the crucial
backfield spot is lacking in stabili-
try which is effecting the -ffensive
game of the entire squad.
