McGill's Redmen are first to test
Vic Heyliger's 1954-55 edition when
they come into the Coliseum this
Friday and Saturday nights for a
two game exhibition series.
Last year, the Wolverines and
Redmen divided the pair, with
Michigan winning the opener, 7-2,
and dropping the second game,
Redmen Look Rugged
According to reports from Mon-
treal, the Redmen are slightly
smaller than last year, but a lot
faster. Coach Rocky Robillard has
seven returning veterans, includ-
ing Pete Jotkus, Gord Corrue, Guy
Burgoin, Ron Robertson, Dick
Baltzan, Johnny Henderson, and
Robertson is the most valuable
man from last year's team, and
along with Baltzan, led the on-
slaught in their second game win
over Michigan last year.
McGill, playing its home games
in the huge Montreal Forum, the
home of the Montreal Canadiens,
already boast one victory this year.
The Redmen slammed the Loy-
ola Warriers, 5-0, as Jotkus, Bur-
goin, and Baltzan scored.
Michigan meanwhile must rely
on only two lines, one composed
of Bill MacFarland, George Dun-
ningan, and Gerry Karpinka, the
other consisting of Tommy Ren-
dall, Jay Goold, and Neil Buchan-
an. Ed Schiller, Bernie Hannah,
and Bob Pitts will be on defense,
with Lorne Howes in the nets.
The game will be the first of
four exhibition tilts, the next pair
coming on Dec. 10 and 11th, here
against Montreal University. The

Blue wound up the season with a

against top teams gave the Wol-

squads with better records.
In the final Associated Press
ranking poll of the season, the na-
tion's sports writers and broad-
casters, casting a record-breaking
ballot, named Ohio's Buckeyes by
a slim margin over UCLA of
3,670 points to 3,594.
These two unbeaten teams had
made it a race all through the
closing weeks of the season, with
OSU slipping into the .lead weeks

SAME PROGRAM AS ',53:
Browns, Lions To Pro-Gr
By ALAN EISENBERG
After last weekend's action, it
looks as if the same script will be
used when the divisional winners
meet for the professional football
title on December 26th.
For the last two years, the De-
troit Lions and the Cleveland
Browns have battled in the Na-
tional Football League champion-
ship game. With a little more than
three-quarters of the action-
packed league schedule gone by
the boards, it is almost a certain-
ty that both the Lions and the
Browns will be fighting for the
The Browns now lead their clos-
et rivals-the Giants and the Ea-
gles who are tied for second-by
12 games, and two in the all-im-
portant losing column. To cap-
ture the Eastern Division flag the
Browns must win two or their re-1
maining three games. This is, of
course, assuming that either the
Giants or the Eagles will not drop
a game. Cleveland will have to win
but two tilts out of three to cap-
ture the flag. One win more will
give the Browns a tie.
Lions Title Cinch
Detroit is a cinch to capture the
Western Division title. The Lions
lead their closest rival by 22
games and need only one victory
in four games to garner another
Cleveland obtained its enviable
position by blasting the New York
Giants, 16-7. The score, however,
is not indicative of the way in
which the winners dominated the
game. The Browns, led by the
"three G's"-Otto Graham, Lou
Groza, and Horace Gillom, scored
early and quickly, and then coast-
Graham completed 16 passes,
good for 210 yards, and scored his
team's only touchdown; Groza was
the high scorer as he booted three
field goals and one extra point;
Gillom, got off several booming
punts, one for 80 yards, to push
the Giants back into their terri-
The New Yorkers were hamper-
ed by the loss of their ace back,'
Frank Gifford, and their top quar-
terback, Chuck Conerly, who was,
injured on the first play of the}
game. Conerly's replacement, Bob-
by Clatterbuck, was a poor replace-
ment, as he could only pick up 68
yards through the airlanes.
Without Gifford to lead the way,
the Giant running attack was ex-
tremely ineffective. The Cleveland

Packers, better than a two touch-'
down underdog, narrowly missed:
pulling a big upset. The Lions play-;
ed loosely both on offense and de-I
fense, and when the game was
over, Coach Paker called it a lucky
victory. Bobby Layne, with two
scoring flips, and Jack Christian-
sen, who crossed paydirt twice,
led the champs.
The big upset of the day was
the dumping of the 49ers by the'
Baltimore Colts, 17-13. A touch-
down pass covering 78 yards, from:
Gary Kerkorian to Royve Womble
in the dying moments of the game
enabled the Colts to win.
The Chicago Bears slipped into
second place in the Western Di-
vision as they surprised the Los;
Angeles Rams, 24-13. The defeat'
eliminated the Rams from title
Other veterans include Charles
Anderson at 123 pounds. Mike'
Rodriguez at-157 pounds and John
McMahon at either 157 or 167
pounds. McMahon competed in
the Big Ten meet last year and!
added valuable points to the Mich-
igan total by taking a fourth place
in the 157- pound division.
