Daily Sports Editor
BENNIE OOSTERBAAN SAT on a big trunk in the Michigan dress-
ing room after the game yesterday, with a smile of genuine appre-
ciation on his face.
He was as happy as a flea in a dog pound.
Removing the sweater and pair of overshoes which he had worn
on the sidelines while watching his boys rock the Golden Gophers, he
turned and said simply, "It's wonderful the way they give so much of
what they have out there."
"By the way, what was the final score?" he asked. The whirlwind
offensive display had left even the head coach in confusion.
Governor G. Mennen Williams elbowed his way through a maze
of players and well-wishers to shake hands with Bennie. He, too, was
more than a little amazed. "I was a few minutes late and missed two
touchdowns," remarked the state's chief executive.

Happy Days Here Again
MANY FORMER MICHIGAN players, celebrating another Wolverine
homecoming triumph, filed into the spirited atmosphere to get in
a word or two of congratulations.
The players themselves reflected the tenor of this third West-
ern Conference success in a row as they jostled each other with-
out restraint. Captain Putich could only say, "It feels great!" Per-
ry, Bradford, Pickard, Peterson, Johnson, Zatkoff and the other
principals were grinning like Halloween Jack-OLanterns
Don Oldham, who played a great game on pass defense, neverthe-
less showed a trace of disappointment. His last-minute interception of
a Minnesota pass had sent him streaking up the field wtih what could
have been another scoring play, but after outrunning the entire Go-
pher team he was tripped up by a flying desperation tackle less than
20 yards from the goal.
Actually the play was as good as a touchdown because a moment
later the Zanfagna-Stanfard pass play clicked in the end zone.
Ben Pederson was knocked unconscious during the bitter
struggle but his injury is not serious. Some folks were alarmed
when Putich began favoring his right knee after a pileup late in
the game, but it was nothing more than a cramp.
A check-up revealed that Putich's 12 yard touchdown run around
right end in the first period was supposed to be a passing play, but the
versatile tailback was trapped on the left so he threw himself into re-
verse quickly enough to fool everyone.

Fesler Singing the Blues
.MHE MINNESOTA LOCKER ROOM was subdued as might be ex-
pected. Wes Fesler bemoaned his team's lack of agility and inability
to gain posses ion from the offense-minded Wolverines.
He could hardly believe that the Gophers had "scored four
touchdowns, run the ball inside the enemy 10 yard line three other
times and still lost by such a margin."
Fesler refused to compare Michigan with California (victor by 55
to 14 over Minnesota) because of the many variable factors involved.
It was easy to see that he was impressed by the play of the Champ-
ions, however.
As the Minnesota coach was talking; one of his former gridiron
pupils at Ohio State came up to shake hands. It was Bob Momsen, star
Bucleye lineman now with the Detroit Lions of the National Football
League. He'll be one of the principals in today's battle with the Bears
at Briggs Stadium.

Illinois Scout Worried
UPSTAIRS IN THE PRESS BOX we had an opportunity to talk with
Leo Johnson, veteran scout for the University of Illinois. This was the
third straight weekend in which he had watched the Wolverines per-
form and he was quite concerned with their obvious progress.
"You look as good as last year and I can't understand it in
view of your backfield losses," Johnson remarked. "Those boys are
getting faster and sharper each week."
He looks for another wide-open offensive show next Saturday
when Michigan and the Illini meet at Champaign.
Most sportswriters on hand yesterday felt that Minnesota showed
signs of a new football era in the Northland. Fesler has injected some
imagination into the Gopher attack. Best example of that was the third
touchdown scored by the visitors which came on a play without a
huddle, involving a short pass and a precision lateral with seconds
left to play in the first half.

Illini, Paced
By Karras,
op Indiana
Halfback Johnny Karras, the worst
thing that ever happened to In-
diana's football team, scored three
touchdowns for Illinois yesterday
and the Illini beat the Hoosiers,
He started his show with an
88-yard scoring run in the first
quarter that set a new Western
Conference record for the longest
touchdown play from scrimmage.
IT WAS THE third straight sea-
son the 175-pound bundle of grid-
iron leopard had proved too strong
and fast for Indiana's defense. The
difference was that he scored only
one touchdown each in the Illini's
1949 and 1950 victories over the
Setting itself up as the team
to beat in the Big Ten, Illinois
had hordes of hard-running re-
placements for Karras. He made
the payoff plays but Pete Ba-
chouros, Bill Tate and Don Ste-
vens also smashed consistently
through the battered Indiana
Undefeated Illinois, now winner
of five straight games including
tw oconference contests, matched
its poisonous offensive play with a
fine defensive performance.
AL BROSKY, Illinois safety man,
twice hauled down Indiana passes
that were tagged "touchdown" in
the first half. Dick Ashburner
threw both of them from the Illi-
nois 20. Brosky's second intercep-
tion 'started an Illinois drive cli-
maxed by Karras' second touch-
Fine punting by Indiana's
Bobby Robertson, who once boot-
ed the ball dead on the Illinois
6, kept the Illini off balance
through all but the lasminute
of the first quarter. Illinois did-
n't make a first down until mid-
way in the second period. Then
it ground out six in a hurry.
The turning point came with
Stanley Wallace's recovery of an
Indiana fumble on the Illinois 11.
Ray Petrauskas had recovered an
Illinois fumble at the Illinois 23
two plays earlier. Illinois gave
Karras the ball twice after it re-
gained possession and then he
made his 88-yard trip.
* * *
THE 88-YARD dash replaced the
85-yard run by halfback Bill Cul-
ligan of Michigan against Wiscon-
sin 1944 as the Big Ten conference
record for the longest scoring play
from scrimmage.
Illinois' first appearance in
Bloomington since 1946, when it
lost, disappointed a homecoming
crowd of 33,000.

Iowa Bows
To Stormy
Buckeye Aerials
COLUMBUS, O. - ( ) - Ohio
State rebounded sky-high after a
series of set-backs yesterday to
defeat Iowa 47-21 in an offensive
Big Ten football battle before 67,-
551 fans.*
NEITHER team showed any-
thing in the way of defense as
Ohio piled up 399 yards in net
gains, and the Hawkeyes advanced
342. The victory was Ohio's first
in three Western Conference con-
tests, and the loss was Iowa's third
in as many conference starts. Ohio
also has a tie.
The Buckeyes put on one of
their fanciest aerial shows as
they completed 11 of 18 passes
for 308 yards, all the completed
tosses featuring touchdown
The seven Ohio scoring surges
covered a total of 437 yards and
the Buckeyes made it in 30 plays,
in which the 11 completed passes
ate up 308 yards. Another 28-
yard gain waschalked up on a
pass interference play.
THE HAWKEYES had a 23-18
edge in first downs, but were nev-
er in the game as Ohio built up a
27-0 halftime lead.

Badgers Drop Wildcats
From Unbeaten Ranks

EVANSTON,, Ill.-('-Wiscon-
sin's Jerry Witt, a "B" team un-
known two weeks ago, scored four
times as the fierce Badgers smash-
ed Northwestern from the unbeat-
en ranks 41-0 in a tremendously
one-sided Big Ten game yester-
* * *
WITT, 194 - pound sophomore
halfback, scored on runs of 69 and
four yards and on two passes from
whip-armed quarterback John
Coatta covering 60 and 16 yards.
Northwestern, winner of four
straight, was a completely out-
classed team, its defense torn to
shreds by the prancing of Witt
and freshman Alan (the horse)
Ameche, and Coatta's deAdly
Fanning their Rose Bowl hopes
to white heat, the Badgers threw
up such a vicious defense that
Northwestern made a minus five
yards by rushing in the first half.
Against Badger reserves North-
western reached Wisconsin's eight
for its best effort.
* * *
WITT scored his fourth touch-
down, on a 59-yard romp, with the
third quarter less than four min-
utes old for a 28-0 Wisconsin lead.
The ball game really ended there.
Reserves produced Wisconsin's
fifth and sixth touchdowns. Burt
Hable passed six yards to Kent
Peters for a third period score.
In the fourth quarter, substitute
fullback Bill Schleisner smashed
over from the three.
Illinois and Michigan rate
stronger Big Ten title favorites,
but Michigan is ineligible for the
Rose Bowl and VAsconsin has only
Minnesota, Iowa and Indiana left
on its conference schedule.

igan.next week, and will then have

to take on an Ohio State squad
which is rebounding from its early
season slump.
Wisconsin has a 2-1-1 record,
but the Badgers are the only
team in the Big Ten playing
seven games, a factor which may
give them some advantage.
The Northwestern team that had
beaten Colorado, Army, Minnesota
and Navy looked as though it did-
n't belong on the same field with
the rugged Badgers.

sealed on the opening kickoff
which Wildcat John Damore boot-
ed twice out of bounds, giving Wis-
consin the ball in midfield. Six
plays later, Coatta shot a 16-yard
toss to Witt in the corner for an
easy score. Ameche, a 206-pound
demon, ripped 29 yards in three
tries during the march.
That was the pattern through-
out the first half-Coatta find-
ing easy targets with his passing
and Ameche spearheading a
crunching ground attack.
On the first play of the second
quarter, Coatta worked his 60-
yard pass play with Witt, Who
wrested the ball from Northwest-
ern's Wally Jones on the Wildcats'
35 and easily streaked for a touch-
Also in the second quarter, Witt
capped a 44-yard touchdown strike
by circling across from North-
western's four.
That gave Wisconsin a 21-0
halftime verdict.
