Only once more did they ever

taking the ball from the Cats on
that brilliant stand, went into punt
formation.
Branoff fumbled the pass from
center-and the ball rolled crazily
about the end zone. If a Wildcat
were to ,fall on it, it would have
} meant defeat. But the quick-
thinking Branoff picked it up,
raced out of the end zone, and on
the run, kicked the ball 62 yards
to the Wildcat 28. This too was a
turning point . .. for never again
did Northwestern control the ball
in Michigan territory.
Barr Sews It Up
Michigan's great scatback Terry
Barr was just rubbing salt in the
Wildcats' wound when he burst
around right end, cut to his left,
and sped 45 yards to paydirt with
a little less than three minutes to
play.
Jim Pace, Barr's sensational
understudy, had another shot at
glory yesterday-but as usual his
dynamic performance was nulli-
field by a penalty.

Midway in the fourth period,
Pace swept the right end brilliantly
for 19 yards to the Wildcat 13
yard line. On the next play he
swept around the other end of the
line - dodging, twisting, floating
through the air like a man on a
tight rope.
He left a 13 yard trail of fallen
Wildcats behind him as he pranced
into the end zone unmolested. But
it was all for naught-as a holding
penalty obliterated the score and
the yardage from the record books.'
As Lou Saban said to reporters
after the game, "The turning point
was when we didn't score-we
conild have beaten them if we did."
It was a creditable game for
Saban's rookie squad-which has
yet to win a single game . . .
Michigan meanwhile picked up its
fourth win of the year-and is
now the only team in the Big Ten
that is unbeaten in overall compe-
tition.
Once again a crew of Wolverine
diehwrds in the stands chanted
enthusiastically for a certam post-
season activity . . . but to all real-
ists. present at yesterday's battle
it looked a long, long way off.

CHAMPAIGN. Ill., ('- Illinois'
blend of passing and running to-
day brought a 21-13 Big Ten foot-
ball victory over the Minnesota
Gophers, who bunched both of
their touchdowns in the third per-
iod on spectacular plays good for
a combined 129 yards.
The Illini, gaining their first
conference triumph after losing
their opener to Ohio State, clust-
ered two touchdowns in the sec-
ond quarter, once on a break, and
again on a 90-yard drive in 13
plays.
After Dick Borstad stole Hiles
Stout's aerial to blunt an Illini
thrust to the Gopher 13, the soph-
omore Minnesota fullback fumbled
on the next play and Rudy Sieg-
ert recovered for Illinois on the
11. Harry Jefferson barreled over
from there and Dick Miller boot-
ed the point.
Last Minute Score
With only 30 seconds left before
the half, quarterback Ed Lind-
beck scored on a 6-yard naked re-
verse to end the long march. Dean
Renn converted.
Illinois captured its insurance
touchdown before 45,995 cheering
fans midway in the final period.
Abe Woodson stole a Ken Bomb-
ardier pass and eventually Stout
rifled a pass to Woodson good for
27 yards. Miller again converted.

TONY BRANOFF (17), Michigan's wingback, fumbles in his own
end zone early in the fourth period. But quick thinking Branoff
picked the ball up, side-stepped two defenders and on the run
kicked a booming 62-yard punt. After this spectacular play, the
Wildcats' backs were broken as they were unable to penetrate past
the Wolverines' 40-yd. line in the final 12 minutes of play.

DEADLOCKED AT 20-20:
Purdue Ties Iowa With Dawson Pass!

IOWA CITY, Iowa (MP-Purdue
shocked 52,137 Homecoming fans
yesterday by deadlocking Iowa 20-

Ten football game, with Len Daw-
son's 14-yard touchdown pass and
his conversion the final plays of
the contest.

Campbell Sparks Hoosiers'
14.7 Conquest of Villanova

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. ()-Na-
tional high hurdle champion Milt
Campbell was Indiana's football
sparker yesterday in a 14-7 vic-
tory over Villanova, which scored
the only time it had the ball in
Indiana territory.
That was a 77-yard pass play,
quarterback Ron Gorton to half-
back John Bauer, with the ball
in the air 45 yards.
Hoosiers Outrush Rivals
Villanova netted only 5 .yards
by rushing to Indiana's 232, but
picked up 122 yards in the air to
the Hoosier's 62.
Campbell, 209-pound right half-
back, scored standing up on an 8-
yard run after setting up the
touchdown with a 10-yard burst.
He got off another 38-yard run,
intercepted one Villanova pass
and caught a 20-yard pass on the

ried the Boilermakers from their
22 to the tying points.
Last Minute TD
The touchdown play started
with only four seconds showing on
the clock. Lanky Len, who also
had used his whiplash arm to ac-
count for Purdue's first two touch-
downs, faded back and let fly to
end Steve Chernicky who grabbed
the ball on the 2 to the far right
side and rammed over.
Then again it was up to Dawson.
He didn't fail. His kick was right
between the uprights. The message
on the scoreboard for the home-
comers was Iowa 20, Visitors 20.
And a sickening feeling must
have surged through the hearts
of the homecoming crowd when
victory had seemed so near.
Hawks Recover Fumble
The dramatic late developments
followed another punishing jolt to
Iowa. The kickoff after the Hawk-
eyes' third touchdown was fumb-
,led by Bill Jennings and tackle
Frank Bloomquist recovered for
the Hawks on the Purdue 13.
However, a holding penalty
dropped Iowa back to the 24. Earl
Smith fumbled on the next play

22.

From then on it was one Daw-
son pass after another with a 17-
yarder to Melvin Dillard carrying
to the Iowa 14 from which Len
launched his final stab. Dillard,
injured on a play, was carried from
the field with 17 seconds left.

TANDINGS

Villanova 7 just as the first half
ended.
Vugene "Chick" C i c h o w s k i
scored the other Hoosier touch-
down on a 2-yard sneak.
Both Indiana toubhdowns were
made within 4 minutes in the
third quarter. Villanova's Gorton-
Bauer heroics came in the fourth.
First Hoosier Win
Indiana, winning for the first
time in four starts, was too big
in the line for Villanova, a f our-
time loser playing its first game
against Big Ten opposition.
Hoosier drives sputtered six
times inside the Villanova 16. In-
diana lost the ball twice on fum-
bles and once on a pass inter-
ception, each time deep in Villa-
nova territory. Villanova had four
passes intercepted and lost the
ball four times on fumbles, also
all in its end of the field.
