Cassady's 52 Yard
Sprint Sets Up TD
Penalties, Fumbles, Interceptions
Hurt Sparkling Wolverine Offense

Badgers Crush Minnesota,
Gain Tie for Second Place

(Continued from Page 1)
From then on Michigan had
plenty of scoring opportunities but
none, of them materialized.
Baldacci Intercepts
Three plays after the touchdown
Baldacci intercepted one of Dave
Leggett's passes on his own 44.
The Wolverines promptly drove to
State's 36 where Baer's fumble put
a temporary halt to their on-
Midway in the second quarter,
with the Buckeyes still owning but
one first down, Michigan moved
from its own 14 to the enemy's nine
before an offside penalty set it
back on the 14. After two passes
fell incomplete, Ron Kramer tried
a field goal from a bad angle on
the right side of the field. It was
off to the left of the goal posts and
State took over on their own 20.
Again the Buckeyes couldn't
crack the Michigan defense and
were forced to punt to Cline who
returned to the Ohio 48. After one
pass had fallen incomplete, Jim
Maddock tossed a short one out in
the left flat that Ohioan Jack Gibbs
gathered in on the 45. He streaked
to the Michigan ten before Mad-
dock shoved him out of bounds.
Leggett to Kriss-TD
On the next play Leggett pitched
a perfect pass to End Fred Kriss
who gathered it in all alone in the
end zone. Weed converted to tie
the score at 7-7 with but 2:37 re-
maining in the first half.
In the third quarter, after State
had still failed to gain, the Wolver-
ines drove from their own 14 to
Ohio's 23 before Baer again fum-
bled and Hubert Bobo recovered
for the Bucks on the 21. Three
plays got Ohio exactly nothing and
Bobo went back to punt on fourth
down with still ten yards to go.
Kramer crashed through to hurry
the kick so much that it went
straight up in " the air with Tom

Maentz catching it for the Wolver-
ines and driving to the 14. Four
plays and some precise measure-
ments gave Michigan a first down
on the State four yard line.
OSU Line Holds
From there Michigan tried the
middle of the line four times. Full-
back Dick Hill got one, Cline got
nothing, Hill got two to the one
yard line, and on the next play was
stoppedon the one-foot line.
That did it, for after Ohio had
moved for a first down on the 11,
Cassady sprinted 52 yards through
the center of the line to the Michi-
gan 37. .
From there the Buckeyes moved
easily to the eight, where with
third down and seven yards to go
for a first down, Leggett ran to
the left and passed to End Dick
Brubaker who was standing all
alone just across the goal line.
Baldacci Recovers Fumble
Michigan had its last real chance
to tie the score when, with seven
minutes to go, Baldacci recovered
State's only fumble on Michigan's
But on the second play Cassady
intercepted a long pass by Cline,
and in ten plays the Buckeyes cov-
ered 62 yards for another touch-
down as Cassady went the final
yard for another score.
Statistically, Michigan beat the
Buckeyes in practically every de-
partment but scoring. The Wolver-
ines picked -up 15 first downs to
State's 13. 229 yards rushing to 196,
and 74 yards passing tto 58 for
On the other hand it is signifi-
cant to note that Michigan lost
two fumbles to State's one, that
Michigan intercepted one pass to
Ohio's three, and that Michigan
was penalized 86 yards while the
Buckeyes were penalized only 35

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (IP) - Pur-y
due's Boilermakers kept the old
oaken bucket yesterday by beat-
ing their old intrastate rivals from
Indiana, 13-7, in one of the rough-
est games of the series that start-
ed in 1891.
Len Dawson's 15th touchdown
pass.this year was the victory
Purdue finished sixth in the Big
Ten, Indiana seventh.
Fist Fights Rage
Fist fights broke out in the
crowd of 44,000, but state police
had the situation under control
when the game ended.
Indiana was penalized 132 yards
to 20 for Purdue.
Purdue's victory ran its modern
dominance of Indiana to seven
straight, the longest string by ei-
ther team in the 57-game series.
Hoosiers Lead at Half
Two 15-yard Indiana penalties
set up a one-yard touchdown
sneak by Dawn in the second quar-
ter. He passed nine yards to Rex
Brock for the winning score in the
Indiana had a 7-6 halftime lead,


MADISON, Wis., ill-Wisconsin's"'
Badgers, their offense hobbled by
Alan (The Horse) Ameche's ach-
ing ankle, cracked a pair of Big
Ten pass interception records yes-
terday and cashed in on enough
breaks to rout Minnesota, 27-0, for
a second-place tie in the confer-
ence football race.
Held to meager 23 yards in the
first half, Ameche managed to
close his collegiate career with two
touchdowns, but was removed mid-
way in the third quarter after he
got up limping following a pileup.
The 210-pound fullback received a
standing ovation from the capaci-
ty Camp Randall Stadium crowd
of 53,131 as he left the field.
Senior halfback Clary Bratt,
who had been shunted to second
string status a couple games back,
intercepted four passes to set a
new conference individual record.
Other Badgers picked off three
more to add up to a new team
mark. Don Swanson, third string
Minnesota quarterback, was the
victim of six of the thefts, gaining
the dubious honor of tying another
Big Ten record.
Badgers Lead at Half
Minnesota, handicapped by the
loss through injury of Geno Cap-
pelletti, regular quarterback, never
was in the ball game as Wisconsin
rose to a 21-0 lead and coasted in.
Ameche banged through the mid-
dle for his two touchdowns in the
second quarter after Jimmy Mil-
ler had scored the first on a four-
yard scamper in the opening pe-
riod. Bratt wound it up in the third
quarter with a four-yard sweep
around end.
Ameche completed his bid for
all-America honors with 26 yards
which gave him a four-year total
of 3,212 yards-greatest total ever
compiled by a college ball carrier.
Despite the record number of in-
terceptions, Wisconsin scored only
once as a result of a pass theft.
Bratt picked off a toss by Darrell

MSC, Notre Dame Trounce Opponents.

Michigan State, smarting after a
season of six defeats-the second
poorest record in Spartan football
history-took out some of the sting
by running up a 40-10 score today
against overmatched Marquette.
It was win No. 3 for MSC, the
Big Ten co-champion and Rose
Bowl winner of last New Year's
Day. Michigan State's worst sea-
son was in 1917, when the Spar-
tans lost all nine games. Marquette
ended with a 3-5-1 record.
Quarterback Earl Morrall got
Michigan State off to a fast start
with a 59-yard touchdown pass to
end John Lewis on the first MSC
play of the game.
Morrall hit Lewis with a 69-yard
pass later in the first period and
in the third quarter connected
with a 62-yard throw to Jerry
Planutis. Clarence Peaks scored
twice for the Spartans on runs of
eight and 65 yards.
Marquette's Frank Scaffidi boot-
ed a 41-yard field goal in the sec-
ond quarter and Fred Connally
scored the lone Warrior touch-
down from 12 yards out in the
final period.
Marquette drove as far as the
Michigan State 3-yard line in the
scoreless first half but was set
back to the 33. Then Scaffidi

thanks to Florian Helinski's con-
version following Borden's touch-
down. Dawson missed his attempt
after the first Boilermaker scene.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (MP - North-
western, springing halfback Dick
Ranicke to two first-half touch-
downs and a lead it never yielded,
yesterday piled up a 20-7, victory
over a collapsed Illinois team, har-
assed by a 122 yards in penalties
and seven fumbles.
The loss was the Illini's sixth of
the Big Ten football season and
buried them in last place without
a conference win for the first
time since 1941.
It was the first time in 20 years
that a Big Ten team finished last
the year after it had won or shar-
ed the title.
The Illini were 1953 co-cham-
pions with Michigan State. Michi-
gan won the 1933 crown and end-
ed in the cellar the following sea-
NU Leads in Series
Northwestern's triumph was its
first in 12 conference games dat-
ing back to 1952.
The Wildcats, moving ahead in
the series with Ilinois by one
game-23 victories and 22 defeats
-rushed on the field of the game
and carried off their elated coach,
Bob Voigts.
Northwestern spotted Illinois a
7-0 lead early in the first quarter,
then scored twice on short blasts
by Ranicke to move ahead 13-7
at halftime.
The Illini tallied in the first
three minutes of the game after
J. C. Caroline captured Frank
Jeske's fumble on the Northwest-
ern 31. Harry Jefferson drilled the
final one foot.
But the Wildcats soon gained
deadlock. A major penalty set Il-
linois back to its own 5. Then Car-
oline lost the ball and end Jack
Stillwell recovered on the 4.
Ranicke Scores
On the third play, Ranicke
smashed across from the one.
In the second quarter, a 15-yard
infraction against Illinois for il-
legal use of the hands helped the
Wildcats move 38 yards to score on
four running plays. Ranicke again
barreled across, from the 6.
Northwestern added its third
touchdown in the third on Dale
Pienta's 20-yard pass to Stillwell,
who raced down the sidelines for
27 more to score.
Illinois, behind the fine passing
of sophomore Hiles Stout, moved
to the Northwestern 14, 17, 10 and
12 yard lines in the last half, only
to have two of Stout's passes in-
tercepted and two more fizzle out.


(Shorty) Cochrane on the Minneso-
ta 16 midway in the third period
and the Badgers needed only three
plays to score. Bratt got seven
yards on the first, Bob Gingrass
added five and Bratt swept wide
for the final four. Paul Shwaiko
added the second of his two con-
Miller Fills Ameche's Shoes
Miller, taking up the sag in the
Wisconsin attack left by Ameche's
bum ankle, sparked the way to the
opening touchdown, a 12-play, 70-
yard drive late in the opening pe-
riod. The slim junior, who looks
more like a choir boy than a col-
lege quarterback, accounted for 25
yards rushing and 23 more on two
pass completions, skipping the fi-
nal four into the end zone on an
off-tackle play from the single
wing. Buzz Wilson kicked the point.
Ameche banked over a pair of
second-quarter touchdowns, each
on a short burst through the mid-
dle. He got his first one on the
first play of the period after Bratt's
24-yard punt return to the Gopher,
29. Miller was run out on at the
corner flag on a slick buck lateral
after making 28 yards and Ameche
needed two tries to get the extra
yard. Shwaiko's try for the point
was wide.
Wisconsin was back in the scor-
ing zone two minutes later. Center
Gary Messner blocked Dale Quist's
punt on the Minnesota 11 and
Guard Norm Amundsen recovered
and returned to the three. Ame.
che's slash was good and so was
Shwaiko's conversion.
The Gophers, helpless through-
out the first half in which they
gained only 19 yards, controlled
the ball most of the time after the
intermission but were hamstrung
by the interceptions. They wound
up with 69 yards rushing, all but
one by Bob McNamara who alter-
nated at fullback and halfback,
and 108 yards passing.

kicked his 41-yard field goal -- be-
lieved to be the longest in Macklin
Stadium since MSC's Paul Smith
drop kicked 43 yards to beat Cen-
tre College 15-13 in 1925.
The single Marquette touchdown
came midway in the final quarter,
eight plays carrying 66 yards. Mar-

Notre Dame Romps
IOWA CITY, Iowa (IP)--Ven-
geance-bent Notre Dame pounded
Iowa, 34-18 yesterday and exact-
ed rich revenge for the famous
14-14 tie that cost the Irish the
national football championship a
year ago.
Notre -Dame, under the cunning
leadership of Ralph Guglielmi, the
passing genius, roared through
Iowa for a 34-6 lead midway
through the final quarter. There
was not need this chilly, crisp day
for the feigned injuries that stop-
ped the clock last year to give the
Irish the precious time necessary
for tying touchdowns.
Only in the late stages did Iowa
ramble freely through Notre Dame
to furnish some consoliation to the
Iowans in the crowd of 52,756, a
sellout gathering that had been
assured when the tickets first went
on sale last July.
Coach Terry Brennan's Irish,
lads were in command all the way
until they were far out of danger
and both squads were dominated
by reserves in much of the late
going. Terry did hustle in his first
team when Iowa threatened a
fourth touchdown, a maneuver
that died with the final gun on
the Notre Dame 5.
