EAST LANSING (P)-Michigan
State whipped Marquette, 33-0, at
Macklm Stadium yesterday and
then erupted into a happy hys-
teria of celebration over the word
that Ohio State had downed Mi-
chigan to send the MSU Spartans
to the Rose Bowl.
Obviously jittery over the out-
come of the decisive Big Ten game
at Ann Arbor, Mich., "65 miles
southeast of here, the Spartans got
off to a slow start.
Michigan State only led 6-0 at
the half but, apparently goaded
by Coach Duffy Daugherty's "keep
your minds on the game" dressing
room spiel at the half, the Spar-
tans came charging back for two
touchdowns in the third and two
more in the final period.
News Brings Screams
The crowd of 41,814 had portable
radios spotted through the stands.
At times the game on the field had
to be stopped because of the noise
of the crowd screaming over favor-
able developments of the Ohio
State went to the Rose Bowl in
1953 and is the first Big Ten team
to make the Pasadena trip twice
in three years.
Dave Kaiser made the first-
period State touchdown on a 41-
yard pass from quarterback Earl
Morrall. Walt Kowalczyk's five-
yard end-around and a one-yard
line buck by Jerry Planutis ac-
counted for the scoring in the third
John Lewis, who had two touch-
downs called back by penalties,
ran 16 yards around end for one
final period score and Dennis Men-
dyk made the other from two
.and tore down the goal posts-
The happy crowd mobbed the
team on the field at the finish and
tore down the goal posts-before
the game ended-in a mad cele-

As the game ended, the con-
ference announced it had passed
a rule that would give the Cotton
Bowl spot to some team other
than Texas A&M even if the latter
wins the conference championship.
A&M is ineligible for the Bowl
game because it is on probation
for violating the recruiting rules.
Under the conference ruling, the
second place team gets the Cotton
Bowl place and TCU, in insuring
itself of a tie for second, automati-
cally advanced to the Bowl game
because it beat the only team able
to tie it for second-Texas.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Half-
back Ed Vereb scored two first half
touchdowns behind a second string
line and Maryland fought off
George Washington throughout
the scoreless second half for a 19-

Bowl with its third undefeated
team in five years.
Vereb thus hiked his season's
touchdown total to 16 in 10 games.

BEN Oosterbaan held court in his usual corner of the Michigan
dressing room after yesterday's game. One could hardly'tell that
he had suffered one of the bitterest defeats of his career. His hat
was cocked at the usual angle, he wore an unperturable smile, his
manner was calm, his voice gentle.
He took the loss like a gentleman. The Michigan coach answered
all the questions in a pleasant manner, never was he curt.
"It's the nature of the game," he said. "You have joys and sor-
rows. I have had my share of both-and I can expect the same in
the future. Some have to win and some have to lose."
The dressing room emptied quickly. The players. dressed and
left as soon as they could. There was only the sound of water in the
shower room. Tony Branoff tried to escape from a half-drunken
well-wisher. The assistant coaches huddled together and talked in
There was almost awe in Ooos-
terbaan's voice when he talked
about the Ohio State team. "They
were a great team," he drawled.
"They dominated play throughout
-they were sharp on offense and
defense. Their' line was always
beating us to the punch."
Oosterbaan had only the great-
t est praise for Hopalong Cassady.
The Buckeye halfback put on a
brilliant show before the shivering
crowd as he gained 146 yards in
28 carries and scored one touch-
"Every adjective that has been
used to describe Cassady applies,"
Michigan's coach noted wryly. A
hint of a smile came over his face
and he said: "And you can throw
in a few more. Just a tremendous
He spoke little about the Michi-
gan team, itself. The Wolverine
BEN OOSTERBAAN mentor observed that our "defense
just wasn't good enough. There
was nobody outstanding for us." Oosterbaan concluded with congratu-
lations to Ohio State for winning the Big Ten championship. And
about the Spartans: "Congratulations, too, to Michigan State. They
will be a fine representative. There's not much else to say . .:
It was a little different on the other side of the tunnel. The Ohio
State dressing room was a cheering, yelling group of players, coaches,
Woody Reigs Supreme...
But it was Woody Hayes who ,reigned supreme. Seated half-
dressed before an open locker, the heavy-set, curly haired coach was
screaming almost hysterically. Over and over again he roared:
"My boys were the greatest . . . my boys were the greatest."
Suddenly, at the peak of hysteria, University president, Harlan
Hatcher and his young son walked into the din. Hayes spoke to
Hatcher for a moment, then leaped up, ran to the center of the room,
and shouted for quiet. He yelled to Cassady who wa singing in the
shower: "Hloppy, Hoppy, come here."
"Boys," the Buckeye coach said, "this is Doctor Hatcher, Michigan
president, who used to be head of our English department." Then
Hayes turned to Hatcher and said, "Prexy, tell them the same thing
you just told me."
In a low and refined voice, President Hatcher praised the Ohio
State team. He called them "the finest team to play in the Michigan
Stadium this year."
A voice in the background shouted, "How about for all time?" A
roar of laughter shuttled through the room. Hatcher grinned broadly,
,shook hands with Hayes, turned and quietly left. Hysteria reigned
Praise from Hayes...
Above the noise Hayes talked about the game. The Buckeye
leader praised his line quite highly. "I've never seen them play like
that. I wouldn't have bet a thousand to one on this one coming out
like it did. Did you ever see anything like it?"
Hayes was correct; on very few occasions have teams put on a
performance as Ohio State did. The Buckeyes met a good Michigan
team and walked all over thei. The Ohio line was aggressive and
hard hitting, their backs shifty and hard to tackle. The winners
made 20 first downs-15 more than the Maize and Blue.
The visitors rolled up all but four of their 337 yards on the
ground. Michigan, on the other hand, could garner only a meagre
109 yards. Branoff was the Wolverines' "big" man with 37 yards in
There was still noise and confusion in the Buckeye dressing
room when I walked out into the cold evening air. Almost, everything
was summed up with the song the' Ohio State players were singing:
"We don't give a damn for the whole-state of Michigan, for the whole
state of Michigan... ."
And that's just the way they played yesterday.
