Figure n Scoring Spree

--Daily-Jack Bergstrom
HERO OF THE bAY-Michigan's Ted Kress on one of his 20 carries which netted him 218 yards on
the ground. This broke the Big Ten record set by fullback Bill Dailey against NU in 1943.
Eight of Top Ten Retain Grid Supremacy

Dick Balzhiser, who had re-
placed the injured Hurley, shot up
the middle for 15, then lateraled
to Kress who sped on into the end
zone. Rescorla converted and it
was 21-0, Michigan.
kickoff and returned to the 25.
Two Bob Burson-Kragseth passes
advanced the ball to the Wildcat
48, the farthest Northwestern got
in the first half.
Big Gene Knutson quelled
Purple ideas of going places
when he snatched another Bur-
son aerial and scampered to the
27. Michigan was detected clip-
ping on the play, however, and
the ball was moved back to the
Maize and Blue 43.
After Balzhiser lost six, Kress
hit Perry for a first down on
Northwestern's 41. On the next
play Kress swept wide, cut back,
and dashed through the Wildcat
secondary for his third score.
RESCORLA missed on the try
for the extra point, and the score-
board read Michigan 27, North-
western 0, with only five minutes
gone in the second quarter.
Michigan's fifth touchdown
resulted from the longest sus-
tained drive of the day. The
Wolverines, with Kress, Howell
and Balzhiser in the drivers
seat, moved 79 yards in 16 plays.
Tom Witherspoon, who replaced
Howell late in the drive, plunged
over to get into the scoring act.
Automatic Rescorla booted his
fourth extra point to make it
Michigan 33, Northwestern 0, at
the end of the first half.

IN THE THIRD quarter neither
team was able to hit paydirt.
Northwestern managed to put to-
gether a semblance of an attack,
but never seriously threatened to
Michigan made one bid mid-
way in the period that advanced
as far as the Purple four yard
line, but Kress fumbled to Wally
Jones to end the drive.
Just as the period ended Mich-
igan began to march to its sixth
score. Northwestern punted out
of bounds on its own 40. On the
first play Balzhiser again broke up
the middle and lateraled to Kress
for 17 yards as the quarter ended.
* * *
WITHERSPOON'S two thrusts
moved the ball to the one-foot
line where Balzhiser carried it
over for the score. Rescorla con-
verted, making it Michigan 41,
Northwestern 0.
With Michigan heavy in re-
serves, Wildcat quarterback
Thomas began to open up a
desperate passing attack. Start-
ing on his own 47, he hit Krag-

seth and Joe Collier on succes-
sive passes to put the ball on
the Wolverine four yard line.
Hren went over on the second
try to break the ice for the Purple.
Kragseth converted to make it
Michigan 41, Northwestern 7.

THE WILDCATS, once having
tasted success, werenow hungry
for some mort. of the same. With
Thomas again directing the at-
tack, the Purple moved for its
second touchdown.
Jones returned a Maize and
Blue punt to the Michigan 44.
Thomas faded to pass, but elect-
ed to run, the ball winding up,
on the 31. Thomas hit Collier
in the end zone for what ap-
peared to be a score, but North-
western was holding on the play.
Thomas hit Lauter for 15 yards,
then pitched to Collier who was
again clear in the end zone. Krag-
seth converted and the score was
Michigan 41, Northwestern 14.
The Wolverines added their last
six-pointer at 12:42 of the final
period. Green recovered a North-
western fumble on the latters' 30-
yard line, where Don Cline, sub-
bing' for Kress, passed to Topor
for the seventh Michigan touch-
Rescorla again converted. Final
score: Michigan 48, Northwest-
ern 14.

NEW YORK-(M)-The behe-
moths of college football-almost
without exception-continued to
pile up victories yesterday as the
campaign reached the halfway
mark for most schools.
Mighty Michigan State, the No.
1 team in the Associated Press
poll, led the parade with a 48-7
crunching of Syracuse, which had
been regarded as one of the bet-
ter outfits in the East.

NOT TO BE outdone, second-
ranked. Maryland clubbed Navy
into its first defeat, 38-7. But C'ali-
fornia, third, and swaggering to-
ward the Pacific Coast Conference
title and a bid to the Rose Bowl,
made it close over Santa Clara,
Georgia Tech and Duke, two
of the leading lights in the
South, both scored impressive
shutouts as they roared toward
their showdown meeting on Nov.

burn, 38-0, while Duke over-
whelmed North Carolina State,
The Big Seven title was all but
decided when defending champion
Oklahoma whipped Kansas, 42-20,
in a battle of the two leading
teams of the loop. The way now

appears clear for the Sooners to
wrap up the title again.
U.C.L.A. both of which have hopes
of upsetting California for the
Rose Bowl nomination, also came
through as expected. Seventh-
ranked Southern Cal defeated
Oregon State, 28-6, and U.C.L.A.
dumped Stanford, the defending
Rose Bowl champion, 24-14.
Upsets-as has been the cus-
tom this season-were few and
far between. Notre Dame stop-
ped Purdue in a minor reversal,
26-14; Minnesota triumphed ov-
er Illinois, 13-7, and Tennessee
beat Alabama, 20-0. The three
results Were unexpected but
hardly of a startling nature.
The list of major undefeated
teams in the country was thinned
by four more with the defeat of
Navy, Kansas, Stanford and Ala-
cuse-a team that had dropped
only one of its first four games-
was effortless. Coach Biggie Munn
used his first-stringers only spar-
ingly and before the first half was
over, the third-string backfield
was in operation.
All told, 61 players performed

for the Spartans. They kept
Syracuse bottled up until the
fourth quarter when the Orange
managed to tally its sole touch-
The Maryland conquest over
Navy was almost a carbon copy
of Michigan State's win. The Ter-
rapins ran up a 31-0 bulge before
the third quarter was over. After
that, Jack Scarbath and Co., re-
tired to the bench to permit the
lesser lights to hold the Navy out-
fit in check.

CALIFORNIA couldn't do much
against little Santa Clara for
three periods, leading by only
14-7. But an outburst in the final
chapter made it look easy.
Oklahoma yielded Kansas a
score in the opening minutes,
but after that dominated the
proceedings. The Sooners, shoot-
ing for their fifth straight Big
Seven title, scored in every quar-
ter with Billy Vessels and Mer-
rill Green leading the parade
over the goal line with two each.
Notre Dame apparently is go-
ing to be one of those unpredictable
teams that can look good one week
and horrible the next. The Irish
unleashed a passing attack for the
first time this season with Tom
Carey and Ralph Gugliemi hand-
ling most of the pitching. Frank
Leahy's lads also recovered eight
Purdue fumbles.-
