Iowa Clashes With Indiana;
I MSC Battles Purdue Today

Big Ten football squads are slat-
ed to see plenty of action today,
both in conference games and in
intersectional competition.
One important clash finds Michi-
gan State playing host to Purdue.
Although the Boilermakers and
Spartans have won only one con-
ference battle between them, this
figures to be a tight battle. Pur-
due, losers to Wisconsin last Sat-
urday, 20-6, in their opening confer-
ence match, are still given an out-
side chance for the title, although
they must rate as slight underdogs
in today's game. Michigan State,
while it has lost two Big Ten games
already, did top Indiana two weeks
ago, 21-14.

Iowa and Indiana meet at Bloom-'
ington in another conference tilt.
Although the. Hawkeyes were the
pre-season choice of many experts
to cop the Western Conference
crown, their chances have been
dimmed by losses to Michigan and

Ohio State. Milt Campbell, star
Hoosier halfback, will return to the
lineup after seeing limited action
during the last two games because
of a knee injury. However, Indi-
ana quarterback Florian Helinski
may see limited duty, depending
on how well-healed his bruised
shoulder is. Iowa, which downed
the Hoosiers last season, 19-13, is
a 13-point favorite.
Illinois, disappointing in its first
four unsuccessful attempts, still
rates as a 14-point pre-game fa-
vorite over Syracuse at Cham-
paign. A Dad's Day crowd of 45,-
000 is anticipated. The Illini have
won all four games in the series,
which dates back to 1909. Illinois
won last year's contest, 20-13, al-
though they were forced to come
from behind twice.
Northwestern battles Pitt at
Pittsburgh, in a game which, un-
der the new NCAA television plan,
will be telecast in the Midwest
only. The battle is rated a tossup.

Gopheers Led'

(Continued from Page 1)
Although Paul Giel, who almost
single-handedly turned back the
Wolverines last year, is missing
from the Minnesota backfield, the
Gophers have found able replace-
ments for the "one-man team."
Ken Yackel, a 190-pound sen-
ior fullback who did not report
for footbal until midway through
his junior year, made his debut
last Saturday as a regular ball-
carrier and promptly vaulted to
the top of the Big Ten statistical
columns with a rushing average
of 8.9 yards per carry.
Ranking third and fourth in the
individual statistics are regular
Minnesota backfield men, Bob Mc-
Namara, with a 7.6 mark, and
John Baumgartner, averaging 7.2
yard. Northwestern's Jim Troglio,
second ranking ground gainer in
the Big Ten with an 8.0 average,
picked up most of his yardage in
last week's game with the Wol-

have already proven its ability to

either, with its only good game be-
ing the Iowa clash.

Offensively the Wolverines are
no better off physically than they
were a week ago when an injury
riddled squad scored only one
touchdown. Ed Hickey is still out
with a cracked rib, Tony Branoff
has not yet recovered from a knee
injury, and Jerry Williams is out
of action with a banged-up shoul-
der. Sophomore end Ron Kramer
is still nursing an injured leg, and
many other Wolverines are sport-

Weed May
Turn Tide
At Columbus
COLUMBUS, Ohio (M - A little
left-footed 142-pounder who stands
only 5-5 and has never carried the
ball nor tackled a foe may be the
difference today as unbeaten Wis-
consin and Ohio State clash here
before 82,000.
He looks like a pygmy among
the Goliaths, does Buckeye Tad
Weed, one of the fast-disappear-
ing specialists in modern football.
Weed gets on the field only to
boot extra points. He has made 11
in a row this year for Ohio State,
13 of 9 last year, and 23 of 26 the
season before, for a grand total of
47 of 56.
With Wisconsin and Ohio State
rated even in every department -
weight, statistics, desire, etc.-a
routine one-pointer or a close-in
field goal by Weed could give the
Bucks the decision. For, while the
1 i t t I e southpaw booter hasn't
missed this year, Wisconsin has
made good on only 7 of 14 tries.
Tension Grows
As the game between the Badg-
ers, rated No. 2 nationally, and the
No. 4 Bucks neared, gridiron ten-
sion grew here in Ohio's capital.
The town was wound up tighter
than a new Christmas toy-but
Coach Woody Hayes declared his
Buck gridders were as relaxed as
a pound of liver.
The Badgers, who have tied one
and lost four in Coach Ivy Wil-
liamson's regime against Ohio,
didn't come to town Friday. They
flew into Springfield, Ohio, 44
miles west, held a warmup drill
and then stayed there overnight.
They'll come in by bus Saturday
for the contest in which one of
the two will be sidetracked off the
road to the Rose Bowl.
While the Badgers were delay-
ing their invasion, the Bucks put
ir a light drill and then gathered
at a hotel for the night.
