Wolverine Loss
First of Season
Minnesota Victory faced by Giel,
Gophers Take 'Little Brown Jug'
Associate Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-Paul Giel put on a spectacular one-man show
here today as he ran, passed and kicked Minnesota to an amazing
22-0 upset victory over a lackluster Michigan team.
The Winona wonderman bucked over two touchdowns, passed to
end Bob Rutford for the other Gopher six-pointer and held for
Geno Cappelletti who converted on two of three- placement tries. The
only points that Giel was not involved in were the two points that
Minnesota was handed by Dick Balzhiser when the harried Wolverine
fullback fumbled in his own end zone.

BLUES-Michigan rooter Wayne Cheng found little to cheer
about during yesterday's listening party in the Taylor House
Lounge. Gloom shrouded his face from the very beginning. In
the first quarter, Minnesota got off to a roaring start as Michigan
Fullback Dick Balzhiser fumbled on his own 35. From there it

was a simple trick to pull a Minnesota touchdown. One of the few
bright moments for local fans came near the end of the second
quarter when Michigan quarterback Lou Baldacci complete a 36-
yard pass play to halfback Ted Kress, who reached the Minnesota
48. With the second half, miracle-man Paul Giel again brought

a touchdown to Minnesota, this time on a pass play to end
Bob Rutford. With this, the Gophers clinched their bid to bring
the "Little Brown Jug" to Minnesota for the first time since 1942.
For Cheng it was all a bad memory.

" "Italy informed Washington,
