Illinois Defeats Huskies
On Last Period Touchdown

Peterson Scores Twice
To Pace Michigan A tack

SEATTLE - - Sophomore
Tommy O'Connell, cool as a fall
frost when the going was tough-
est, pitched Illinois to a fourth-
quarter, tie-cracking touchdown
and a 27-20 football victory yes-
terday over the ever-challenging
Huskies of the University of Wash-
ington.
The invading Illini, ranked
eighth in the nation, had freed
two flying phantoms - Johnny
Karras and Pete Bachouros - in
the first half to run up a 20-7
margin before a stunned crowd of
54,000.

count at 20-all and wreck the Illi-
nois running attack.
With seven minutes left, O'-
Connell launched an 81-yard
drive to the victory. Plungees
took the Illini to midfield and
when Washington threatened
to halt the parade there, O'Con-
nell went upstairs and pitched
five strikes to reach the goal,
throwing every one off the deep
punt formation. There were only
two minutes left-too little for
the Huskies to generate a retal-
iatory drive.
Center Charles Boerio was the
spearhead of the Illinois defensive
platoon, reaching the peak of a
brilliant day when he stopped three
Washington plunges inside the
Illini eight yard line.

down to the Wolverine nine in the
waning moments of the second
quarter. With four downs to take
it over, the Hawks ran into a
steel-plated Wolverine defense.
On the first play Reichardt
gained four, but was mangled
on another rush and two passes
by quarterback Burt Britzmann
were knocked down by an alert
Michigan pass defense with Don
Oldham, Roger Zatkoff and
Dave Tinkham doing the dam-
age.
At the start of the second half
Iowa looked like it was going to
make a game of it-that is until
the Hawks reached the Michigan
18. Eight plays had carried from
the Iowa 37, when Tinkham in-
tercepted a Britzmann aerial on
his own two and ran all the way
back to the Hawk 49.

better average yardage (40 yards)
but the two quick kicks of Peter-
son and the great out-of-bounds
punts by Bill Billings were the
more decisive. Both Wolverine
kickers kept the Hawks back on
their heels out of danger.
Michigan scored i t s first
touchdown the second time the
Wolverines got their hands on
the ' ball. Bill Putich took a
Denning punt on his own 41
and fought his way back to the
Iowa 14.
Wes Bradford, who made his fi-
nal appearance in a Michigan uni-
form in quite a while, charged for
five on the reverse and Petersoti
piled over right guard for a first
down on the Iowa 34.

Former Kentucky Hoop
Stars Admit NIT Bribe

CHICAGO-(M)-The spreading
collegiate basketball fix scandal
engulfed the University of Ken-
tucky's fabulous 1948-49 team-
one of the greatest in the history
of the sport.
Investigators from the New York
district attorney's office seized the
two former All-America greats,
Alex Groza and Ralph Beard, in
Chicago, and ex-Kentucky team
captain Dale Barnstable, in Louis-
ville.
AFTER questioning, the investi-
gators said, the three admitted
accepting $500 bribes each to shave
the point spread in a 1949 Na-
tional Invitational Tournament
game March 14, 1949, in Madison,
Square Garden, New York.

(.

The fix scandal now has im-
plicated at least 34 players from
seven teams. Other schools in-
volved are Bradley, Toledo, CCNY,
Manhattan, Long Island and New
York U.
GROZA, six-foot seven-inch cen-
ter, and Beard, a guard, were ar-
rested Friday night at the Chicago
Stadium, where they watched the
Rochester (N.Y.) Royals defeat the
College All-Stars.
Assistant District Attorney Vin-
cent A. G. O'Connor, of New York,
took them to the Criminal Courts
Building where they confronted
Nick (The Greek) Englisis and
Vat Brown-gamblers under in-
dictment in New York on charges
of game-fixing.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-(A)-Lit-
tle Hank Lauricella, triple threat
star for unbeaten Tennessee,
cracked Alabama resistance with a
76-yard quick kick, passed like a
zipper for a touchdown and ran
through Alabama for another
score yesterday as Tennessee won,
27-13.
Even at the end of this great
football afternoon, Lauricella still
was hot and a genuine threat in
whatever he tried-kicking, run-
ning or passing. For a sellout
house of 45,000 fans, the New Or-
leans kid was a return to the old
days of versatile players and sin-
gle wing formation power.
Also at the end of this game
between Tennessee, the nation's
second ranked power and Alabama,
the ninth ranker, Alabama man-
aged to hurl a touchdown thrust
and make it stick.
