Oosterbaan Lands Team
For Victory Over Bucks

By IVAN N. KAYEI
Daily Sports Editor
"It was a team victory, and I'm
very proud of the boys."
A smiling Bennie Oosterbaan
spoke those words yesterday af-
ternoon amid the delirium of the
Michigan locker room after the
upset victory over the Ohio State
Buckeyes.
THE MICHIGAN coach did not
want to single out any one player
for special commendation. He
agreed that this was Michigan's
best effort of the season and was
happy to report that none of his
players had suffered serious injury
in the gruelling contest.
The Michigan team was alert
and opportunistic, turning Ohio's
mistakes into Wolverine touch-
downs. Dick Balzhiser and Tad
Stanford recorded the two most
important pass interceptions.
Stanford's especially removed
all chance of an Ohio comeback.
He almost returned the ball for
a touchdown but was halted on
the Ohio two.
Ohio, famed for its comeback
ability, never got the chance as
the spirited Michigan forward

wall engulfed all Buckeye scoring1
efforts.
MICHIGAN'S victory gained
some measure of revenge for the
defeat last year at Columbus
which knocked the Wolverines out
of the conference championship
and Rose Bowl picture. The tri-
umph was the Wolverines' seventh
in the last nine years over their
arch rivals from the Buckeye
State. A tie was recorded in 1949.
Michigan has long been known
as a November team and this
season was no exception. The
caliber of the varsity's play
steadily improved, although
games were lost to Illinois and
Michigan State.
Against the Illini, Michigan ran
into a team which was having per-
haps its best afternoon of the sea-
son. In losing, the Wolverines
were probably playing their best
all-round game up to that time.
AT EAST LANSING, before the
nationwide television audience, the
varsity played an even better,
game. In both the Illinois and
Michigan State games however,
the offense did not come up to
expectations. Yesterday the Wol-

SECOND SCORE-Wolverine halfback Tony Branoff tallies Mich-
igan's second touchdown from the Ohio State 6-yard line. His slant
over right tackle climaxed a 38-yard march that began after Dick
Balzhiser had intercepted one of John Borton's passes.

Michigan Trounces Favored Buckeyes -

(Continued from Page 1)
John Borton faded deep' into his
own territory and tried to hit end
Bob Joslin with a pass. Balzhiser,
backing the line, drifted over and
intercepted the toss, putting the
ball on he OSU 38 and putting
the Wolverines in business.
Branoff got eight yards on
the first play, fullback Bob
Hurley'ripped off 15 on the next
one, Cline got six, Hurley hit
for another three and then
Branoff slammed over the right3

side to score. In the afternoon,
Branoff, the brilliant sophomore
wingback, gained 113 yards on
17 tries-an average pickup of
6.7-to lead both teams in rush-
ing.
The Buckeyes couldn't go any-
where-the Michigan line played
stalwart ball, holding them to a
net gain of 95 yards rushing and
the secondary, while yielding 107
yards to the combined aerial at-
tempts of Borton and Dave Leg-
gett, came up with five intercep-

tions to halt Ohio at crucial mo-
ments.
IT WAS the second of these in-
terceptions, coming late in the'
third quarter that killed all buck-
eye hopes of winning. Baldacci
had just punted to Howard "Hop-
along" Cassady, Buckeye half, on
the Ohio 14 and he was hit after
a one yard gain. On the next play,
Cassady was hit for a two yard
loss and then Borton decided to"
shake Cassady loose for a pass.
He threw into the flat, but
Tad Stanford, Wolverine end,
aleri4y moved over and snared
the ball on the OSU 20. Stanford
side-stepped his way to the two
before being downed.
It took Michigan only one crack
at the Ohio line to get its third
touchdown-Cline spurted through

verines struck that perfect com-
bination which produced a winner.
Ohio State probably had its
worst afternoon of the season
yesterday. Not only were the
Buckeyes up against a highly
keyed Michigan team, but they
themselves could do nothing
right. For them it was the kind
of an afternoon which was much
like the Michigan experience at
Minneapolis back at midseason.
Ohio was badly beaten by Illi-
nois early in the campaign, but on
that day the Buckeyes managed to
score three touchdowns to at least
soften the blow of defeat. Yester-
day's shutout was he only one in-
uicted on Woody Hayes' usually
high-scoring club during 1953.
jE r

UCLA cinched the PCC title yes-
terday by defeating Southern Cal-
ifornia, 13-0, while Stanford was
knocked from a share of the crown
by being held to a 21-21 tie by
California. It now is only a for-
mality in naming UCLA as the
team to meet the Big Ten choice
in the Rose Bowl.
Neither Illinois nor Michigan
State played UCLA this season.
However, UCLA hung a 13-0 de-
feat on Wisconsin, the team
that smothered Illinois a week
ago. 34-7.
Choosing between them will be
the most difficult selection ever
forced on the voters since the
bowl series started in 1947.
THE DIRECTORS wired their
votes to commissioner K. L. Tug
Wilson in Chicago last night. Aft-
er tabulation, he will announce
the outcome today about 4 p.m.
CST.
If there is a 5-5 tie in the vot-
ing, the poll will continue until it
is broken. Wilson cannot break it
himself.
Georgia Tech Nips
Blue Devils, 13-10
ATLANTIC - (A) - Halfbcak
Billy Teas ran a punt back for 48
spectacular yards and a touch-
down in the closing minutes yes-
terday and Georgia Tech jumped
back into the bowl pictue with a
13-10 victory over Duke's Blue
Devils.
Had it not been for the mas-
terful running by the speedy
junior, Tech fans would always
have argued that the officials
had robbed their Yellow Jack-
ets of victory.
Duke grabbed a 10-6 lead in the
third quarter. The key play in
Duke's drive was a lateral that
brought thunderous boos from the
sellout crowd of 40,000 when of-
ficials allowed it to stand.
The crowd had heard an offi-
cial's whistle and it was sure half-
back Lloyd Caudle had been stop-
ped at the line of scrimmage.
But officials allowed his lateral
to quarterback Jerry Barger, who
went 22 yards to the Tech 20. The
Blue Devils scored in five plays,
fullback Jack Kistler smashing
through from the four.

right tackle for

the tally and Bal-I

dacci's placement made it 20-0.
The victory preserved an un-
beaten slate for the Wolverines at
home. They won all six games
played in the friendly environs of
Michigan Stadium, and lost every
game on the road-it must have
been those white uniforms.
