Buckeyes, Razorbacks Clash
With Pittsburgh, Rice Elevens


By The Associated Press
COLUMBUS - Ohio State's un-
beaten Bucks, their sights set on
the Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl
bid, aren't taking Pittsburgh's
Panthers lightly in today's foot-
ball fracas.
* The game has no bearing on
Ohio's championship hopes, but an
upset at the hands of the 13-point
underdog Pitt team could be hu-
miliating. Two years ago, in the
last meeting of the. teams, Pitt
surprised with a 21-14 triumph, and
the year before fell by only 16-14.
80,000 Expected
Starting time has been moved
up to 1:30 p.m. (EST), and a
crowd of more. than 80,000 will sit
in on the fray-largest turnout for
a Panther-Buck contest.
Pitt lost its first three games,
then won the next three after Tom
Hamilton moved in as substitute
for ailing coach Red Dawson. Ohio
has won six in a row. Two weeks
ago Pitt whipped Northwestern 14-
7, and last week Ohio did it by the
same score against the only mutual
Upset Is Possible
But the Panthers did a more

workmanlike job than the Bucks
against the Evanston Wildcats,
hleading to the belief an upset might
be in the offing.
Against Northwestern Pitt had a
20-10 edge in first downs, Ohio 14-
14. Pitt gained 277 on the ground
and held the 'Cats to 97, while Ohio

rambled for only 178 and allowed
100. Northwestern passed for 100
yards against Ohio, and only 57
against Pitt.
Ohio is a bit battered, with half-
back Hopalong Cassidy, end Dick
Brubaker, guard Jim Parker and
centers Bob Thornton and Bud


TOUCHDOWN THREAT-Mickey Bates, who teams with Illinois
halfbacks J. C. Caroline and Abe Woodson to form one of the na-
tion's most potent backfield combinations, faces Michigan this
afternoon at the Stadium. Bates was switched from right half-
back, where he played last season, to fullback in order to make
room for sophomore Woodson.



The injury list remains the same as Hickey returns to the lineup
and Bates leaves the football field for the hospital bed. Tony Bran-
off will also miss today's game. His knee is scheduled to be oper-
ated on Monday.

Eliot has come out and flatly

as- saying "Our kids are coming.

was heavily counted on to stop
the Illini running attack. Gene
Snider, a sophomore who has seen
considerable action in earlier
games, will fill in for Bates. Ed
Shannon will take over Branoff's
wingback spot, with assistance
from Ed Hickey, who is still both-
ered by a broken rib, and George.
Jerry Williams also remains on
the injured list, which means that
Tom Maentz will again start at
right end. With Ron Geyer re-
placing John Morrow at right
tackle, the rest of the' team will
line up as'usual, with Ted Catchey
and Ed Meads at the guards, Art
Walker and Ron Kramer at tackle
and end on the left side of the
line, Lou Baldacci at quarterback,
Fred Baer at full, and Dan Cline
at left half.
In a series which started in
1898 with a 12-5 Wolverine win,
Michigan holds a substantial 25-
14 edge in total victories over the
Illinois Seeks to Extend String
Starting in 1950 Illinois has
triumphed 7-0, 7-0, 22-13, and
19-3 respectively, with the pair of
7-0 games played in snowstorms.
This year the Wolverines have
been alternately hot and cold as
they opened with a shaky 14-0 win
over Washington, lost a 26-7 de-
bacle to Army, surprised Iowa's
powerful Hawkeyes 14-13, slip-
ped by Northwestern 7-0, routed
previously unbeaten Minnesota
34-0, and then became an upset-
victim themselves when Indiana
halted them, 13-9, last week.
Meanwhile the Illini have been
consistently on the .losing side of
the ledger. For the first time in a
football history that began in
1890, Illinois dropped its first four
games, to Penn State, Stanford,
Ohio State, and Minnesota. The
victory over Syracuse preceded last
week's 28-14 loss to Purdue.

Pitt is at the peak, physically.

here today with the football cham-

for the victor.
A victory for the Razorbacks,
winners of six straight this year,
will leave them needing no mpre

NORFOLK -- Duke's Blue Dev-
ils are a shaky three-point favorite
to prevail over battling Navy and
thus improve their chances of gain-
ing an Orange Bowl bid when the
two teams collide here today.
Kickoff time for the "Oyster
Bowl" game on Foreman field, a
charity contest for the benefit of
Shrine hospital, is 2:15 p.m.
"Ridiculous" is what Duke
coach Bill Murray has tabbed his
team's role as favorite despite the
Blue Devils' record of four victor-
ies, a tie and a single loss. And
coach Eddie Erdelatz of Navy
agrees that his Middies, the na-
tion's top team in total defense
with a per-game yield of only 160.2
yards, are a good bet to spring an

Sigma Alpha Mu and Phi Delta

grid final by winning their semi-fi-

Ferry Field.
Swaney Stars
With Rusty Swaney pitching and
Chuck Hoag and Doug Lawrence
catching, the Phi Delta Theta sev-
en blanked Zeta Beta Tau, 15-0, to
gain a berth in the first-place play-
off championship finale. Hoag tal-
lied in the first half for the Phi
Delts, with Lawrence notching a
TD in the second. Frank Moore
trapped the ZBT tailback ih his
own end zone for a safety.
In a battle in which only the sec-
ond half was played, Sigma Alpha
Mu trounced Delta Tau Delta, 27-6.
Although the game was played in
its entirety last week, it was played
in two 15-minute halves. Under the
official I-M league ruling, all play-
off games are to be divided into
four 10-minute quarters. It was
ruled that the second half be
replayed, with the Sammies lead-
ing, 7-0.
The Sammies built up their 7-0
advantage, however, as Warren
Wertheimer pitched touchdown aer-
ials to Mike Waxberg, Tom Kovan,
and Bruce Stiglitz, and two extra
points to Paul Richman, who also
grabbed a Wertheimer pass in the
first half.

The big game is at Pittsburgh

The Eagles, although two touch-

The Browns are 17-point favor-
