THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Wisconsin, MSC, 'M' Win Big Ones
Top-ranked Michigan State rolled with a second Half surge to
turn back Notre Dame, 21-3, and maintain its unblemished record.
The Spartans beat Notre Dame mainly on Irish fumbles. MSC
recovered seven bobbles, and Captain Don McAuliffe notched two
touchdowns as a result. The Notre Dame field goal also came as a re-
sult of a fumble, this one by Michigan State.
* * *
MEANWHILE, in the Mid-West; Michigan and Wisconsin scored
important victories, while Purdue fell by the wayside in the Western
Conference title race.
Michigan's comeback 21-10 beating of the Boilermakers
knocked Stu Holcombe's eleven right out of the Rose Bowl pic-
ture. The Badgers, early-season flag favorites, pinned a 37-14 de-
feat on Iowa.
Ohio State racked up its fourth league triumph by defeating
Illinois, 13-7. This win moved the Buckeyes into fifth position in the

IN A NON-CONFERENCE affair, Minnesota invaded the Big
Seven successfully with a 13-7 verdict over Nebraska.
The only other action on the Big Ten scene saw Iowa maul
Northwestern, 39-14, for its second loop win. This defeat dropped
the Wildcats into the league's basement.
Opponents In Dixie Classics Decided
Mississippi, with an upset win over Maryland, joined Georgia
Tech, Tennessee and Texas in the elite major colleges to gain bowl
Texas will act as host in the Cotton Bowl, having wrapped up
the Southwest Conference title with a 14-7 decision over Texas
* * * *
BOTH THE Cotton Bowl and Sugar Bowl teams are decided-'
Tennessee vs. Texas in the Cotton and Mississippi vs. Georgia Tech
in the Sugar.
A nation-wide television audience watched Georgia Tech
squeeze by Alabama, 7-3.
Dick Pretz, a second-stringer, scored Tech's only touchdown in
the second period when he bucked nine yards.
FRESHMAN FRED WYANT threw touchdown passes to Dick
Nicholson and Paul Fischoff in the final period to lock up a 27-7
victory for West Virginia over underdog Virginia Tech.
Another freshman, halfback Flo Worrell, scored two TDs
and lit the spark for two others as North Carolina ended an
11-game losing streak with a 27-19 score over South Carolina.
Jimmy Campagna and Bob Clemens sparked Georgia to a hard-
earned 13-7 win against fired-up Auburn.
Orange, Panthers Crush Opposition
The two big eastern hopes for post-season game-Pitt and Syra-
cuse-both crushed their opposition.
Syracuse overcame Colgate, 20-14, and Pitt, one of the surprise
teams of the season, blasted North Carolina State, 48-6.
* * * *
PRINCETON KEPT alive its chances of winning the Ivy League
championship by walloping Yale, 27-21. If Penn loses a game in
league competition, the Tigers could take it.
Bob Unger, ably assisted by Homer Smith, passed and rahi
Princeton to a wild and wooly win to give the Tigers their third
consecutive Big Three championship.
Two of Princeton's scores came at long range-one TD play
covering 80 yards and the other 93 yards.
TWO LIGHTNING strikes in the space of five minutes in the
second period-a 60-yard run by fullback Guy Bedrossian and a 55-
yard dash with an intercepted pass by Russ MacLeod-gave down-
trodden Cornell a 13-7 upset victory over Dartmouth.
Dartmouth salvaged its only touchdown in the last quarter
when left halfback Russ Smale took a Cornell punt in mid-field
and raced 50 yards for the score.
ARMY, SPARKED BY Bill Purdue, Freddie Attaya and well-
lubricated by mud, scored a touchdown in the final 44 seconds to upset
Trojans Remain Class of Coast
Out on the West Coast, UCLA sat on the sidelines while Southern
Cal walloped Washington, 33-0, in a warmup for the crucial test be-
tween the two schools next Saturday.
The Huskies were supposed to be USC's last big obstacle before
the UCLA game, but they put up little fight after the first half.
* * * *
STANFORD DROPPED a 21-20 verdict to Oregon at Palo Alto
in another Pacific Coast Conference engagement. A wide and low
conversion attempt meant the difference.
Oregon capitalized on Stanford fumbles, turning them into
two of their three touchdowns. The biggest Oregon break came at
the start of the second half when guard Jim Jacques recovered
Bob Mathias' fumble on the opening kickoff, and Tom Novikoff
drove to the Stanford end zone to give the visitor a 14-7 lead.
Paced by reserve left half Bob Brooks, who scored touchdowns
from nine and four yards out, the California Bears finally broke their
three-game losing streak with a 28-11 victory over Washington State.
A CROWD of 26,000 sat in the cold, windy Stadium to see the
Bears cross the Cougar goal line in the first period, push over two
more in the second, and clinch it with a touchdown in the fourth.
Idaho made good on its last chance at a Coast Conference victory
by cracking a tough Oregon State defense in the last half, 27-6.

OXFORD, Miss. - (om) - Mis-

pitched a 42-yard fourth period
pass today to upset mighty third-
ranking Maryland, 21-14, and send
the twice-tied Ole Miss Rebels into
New Orleans' Sugar Bowl.

Trojans Score, 33-0;
Throttle Star Passer
Southern California drove through
rain, mud and the University of
Washington football team yester-
day for a 33-0 victory to set the
stage for next week's Rose Bowl-
deciding battle In the Cost Con-
ference with undefeated UCLA.
Held to a 7-0 lead for two quar-
ters by a surprisingly stubborn foe
from the Pacific Northwest, the
Trojans broke loose for two touch-
downs in the third period and two
more in the final quarter to turn
the contest into a rout.

ENROUTE to their eighth tri-
umph of the season, the Trojans
handed the Huskies' All-America
quarterback candidate, Don Hein-
rich, the worst afternoon he's ex-
perienced since UCLA wrecked
Washington earlier in the sea-
Heinrich, the nation's lead-
ing passer who was playing per-
haps his final college game be-
fore going into the army, had
five passes intercepted-two for
touchdowns - and completed
only two throws out of 18 tries.
They gained only 14 yards.
It was the first time Washing-
ton had been shut out in 44 games,
dating back to 1949, and was a sad
farewell for the Huskies' 1950 All-
* * *
SOUTHERN CAL scored four'
of its five touchdowns via the air
--two by interceptions and two
Washington crossed the goal
once, on a splendid 68-yard punt
return to ace safety-man Sam
Mitchell, but the play was called
back on a clipping penalty.
The first Trojan scoring drive
was executed on nine running
plays, by Jimmy Sears and Leon
Sellers, and one pass for 20 yards,
Sears to Ron Miller. Sellers
plunged from the one on the final
line stunned the nation's number
three football team into submis-
sion, and the Terps' first loss since
Oct. 4, 1950 and 21 games.
For the entire second half,
Mississippi's keyed up offense
dominated the play and knocked
on the goal line three times be-
fore the last payoff punch car-
The game was a crushing ding-
dong battle for the full 60-minutes
but the hero of the day was the
Mississippi line that bottled up
All-America candidate Jack Scar-
bath and held that pass-master to
only two completed throws.
'IT TOOK the jittery Mississip-
pians four tries to break the dead-
lock and push over the game win-
After the lines of both Mary-
land and Mississippi clogged the
opposing backs most of the first
period, the Terps got moving on
the bruising running of half-
backs Chet Hanulak and sopho-
more Leland Liebold.
Scarbath, doing his neat job
behind the center, failed to find
his passing range. Hanulak
bounced over the last four yards
for Maryland's first score on the
first play of the second period
after a scoreless first quarter.
* ~* *
THAT STARTED a dizzy chain
reaction of offensive power.
Mississippi stormed 83 yards
on mixed running by Dick
Westerman and Harol Lofton
and Lear's clicking passes. The
payoff came on a 31-yard pass
to end Ray Howell in the end
Lightning struck Mississippi on
its kickoff to Maryland. Defensive
Maryland halfback Dick Nolan
streaked from his own 10 where
he took the kickoff straight down
the middle 90 yards to a touch-
down. Not a Mississippi hand
touched him, and Decker con-
verted to give Maryland a 14-7
lead at the half.

BLOOMINGTON - Wisconsin
rode into a 'tie for the Big Ten
lead yesterday on the broad back
of fullback Alan (The Horse)
Ameche, who scored three touch-
downs in a 37-14 victory over In-
The 205-pound Ameche was
more a stake runner than a draft
horse when he got into the open.
He started Wisconsin's scoring in
the first quarter, and Indiana nev-
er caught up.
Ameche plunged one yard for
the starter, raced 43 yards for a
'ran 31 yards for his final six
points in the fourth period.
Wisconsin zipped 54 yards in 10
plays for its first touchdown and
used only one four-yard pass in
the process. Bill Hutchinson need-
ed less time for the second Bad-
ger touchdown. He caught an In-
diana punt on his own 35 and
twisted and looped 65 yards.

IOWA 39, NORTHWESTERN 14
EVANSTON - Iowa's, "injured"
quarterback, Burt Br itzmann,
scored one touchdown and flipped
two touchdown passes in a blister-
ing second half attack which jolt-
ed favored Northwestern into the
Big Ten cellar under a 39-14 past-
Britzman was pressed into ac-
tion when the Hawkeyes' starting
signal caller, Paul Kemp, was car-
ried off the fieldwith a broken
leg in the second quarter just be-
fore Northwestern moved ahead
for the last time, 14-13.
IT WAS IOWA'S second victory
in eight starts, the other also a
corking upset in the form of an
8-0 spilling of Ohio State.
now certain of at least a share
of the conference basement with
a 1-5 record, had one solace.
End Joe Collier, who grabbed a
38-yard touchdown pass for the
first Wildcat score, speared six
passes to break the conference
season record of 28 receptions set
by Northwestern's Don Stonesifer
in 1950. Collied now has grabbed
33 passes in six conference games.

John Borton, the Buckeyes' split-
T quarterback, mixed his passing

WHEN GENO Cappelletti con-

impregnable defense yesterday to
give Georgia Tech a squeaky 7-3
victory over a fierce, unexpected,
ly strong Alabama.
Tech's valiant defense, spear-
headed by All-American lineback-
er candidate George Morris, three
times halted Alabama drives
which could have changed the
outcome and brought a repeat of
1947 when 'Bama knocked Tech
from the perfect-record ranks.
