to run all over Missouri, 42-7, in
the 1955 season opener at the
Michigan Stadium yesterday.
Ron Kramer, Michigan's All-
American candidate, scored 23
points to power the Wolverines to
the lopsided victory. The big left1
end scored three times and booted
five extra points to spark the
day's play.
Missouri Scores
Missouri opened the scoring late
inthe first' quarter after keeping
theball in Michigan territory
from the kickoff. Left half Jerry
Curtwright recovered a fumble by
Terry Barr on the Michigan 23-
yard line. Five plays later, quar-
terback Jerry Huntre passed to
left half Dick Stauber for the
touchdown. Chuck Mehrer con-
verted to give the Tigers a 7-0
The second quarter opened with
Missouri still leading 7-0. But
then the Wolverines seemedto
tome alive after a jittery first
period. Wolverine left half Tony
Branoff took a Missouri punt, on
his own 41 and ran it back to
the Tiger 48. Three plays later
Michigan had marched to the
Missouri 10, the key play being
a 27-yard pass from Tom Hend-.
ricks to Branoff. The Tiger line
held tight and the Wolverine at-.
tack stalled on the eight-yard line
as the ball went over to Missouri.
Tie Score1
Branoff again brought the pig-
skin into Missouri territory as he
ran a Tiger punt 'to the 40. Two
quick running plays failed, but

an 11-yard pass to Kramer who
lateralled to Branoff, the later
taking it to the 21. Three plays
later, Van Pelt tossed to Kramer
on the seven and he raced into
the end zone for the tally. Kram-
er. converted to tie the score at
The Kramer kickoff was taken
by Missouri on the Tiger 18 and
returned to the 29. After two
plays and a holding penalty, the
Tigers were back on their 23.
Michigan's Lou Baldacci grabbed
off one of Stauber's passes and.
the Maize and Blue had the ball
on the Missouri 25. Six plays la-
ter Baldacci went over from the
two and Kramer converted. Mich-
igan led 14-7.
From here the rampage started.
Before the half ended, Baldacci
had hit Kramer in the end zone
and with the latter converting to
give Michigan a 21-7 lead.
