'Uclans Lose
In Thriller
By The Associated Press
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Half-
back Ed Vereb's 17 yard run over
the goal on a fourth down pitchout
play at the outset or the second
half was the only break in a terrific
defensive battle won 7-0 yesterday
by Maryland over UCLA, the na-
tion's top ranked college football
team.

IT WAS a difference from last year's lethargic opener against
Washington. In the 1954 Huskie game, an uncertain Michigan
team stumbled to a 14-0 triumph. Yesterday, the Wolverines unleashed
a vaunted attack that had been publicized for many weeks, and
except for the first'quarter, completely dominated the one-sided
contest.
Though Coach Bennie Oosterbaan described the Maize and Blue's
effort as only a "reasonably good job" there are many reasons for
Wolverine followers to be happy. Michigan showed a well balanced
attack picking up eight first downs and 164 yards on the ground, and
eight first downs and 154 yards via the airlanes. At least eight men
passed and all demonstrated that they can accurately throw the ball.
On defense, little more could have been demanded; Missouri was held
to a total of 115 yards. Don Fourot's Split T found little success and
the Wolverines were more than competent in batting down Tiger
aerials, something which has been lacking the past few years.
And then, of course, there was Ron Kramer. The highly-touted
East Detroiter accounted for 23 points (only nine less ;than in the
whole '54 season) and caught seven of eight passes. In the dressing
room after the game, Fourot commented, "Kramer is the best I've
ever seen. We couldn't cover him - even when we knew they were;
throwing to him. He will break your back." Said Oosterbaan: "I can't
say anything more than I have already said. Nothing he does surprises
me."
Good Performances by Many...
THERE WAS the heartening play of Jim Pace and Tom Hendricks,
the dependability of Lou Baldacci and Tony Branoff, the fine
quarterbacking by Jim Van Pelt, and the competent jobs turned in
by Mike Rotunno and Charlie Brooks.
Tiger coach Fourot was also impressed with the overall picture
of the Ann Arbor eleven. "Michigan will be plenty tough - all the
way," said the visiting mentor. When asked if he would compare
Maryland to the Wolverines, he commented dryly, "Just look at the
score." (Missouri lost to the Terps by only a single point).
True, Michigan's opening victory was an impressive one. Yet the
chant heard on the Wolverine side of "Rose Bowl, Rose Bowl" is not
yet deserved. The loss of Jimmy Hunter, ace Missouri quarterback,
early in the game was a terrible blow for the visitors. Add this to the
many other injuries suffered by the Tigers and you realize that the
win still leaves many questions concerning the Michigan eleven still
unanswered. Remember, also, that the losers were pointing towards
Maryland and that a big letdown resulted before they met the Maize
and Blue.
The garme was broken up in the second period as Michigan rallied
for three scores and led at the half, 21-7. Two of the three touchdowns
were results of passes, Kramer scoring on both occasions. This change
in strategy - from a running to a passing game - proved to be the
turning point of the game. As a matter of fact, the winners completed
seven of nine passes in the first half, good for 129 yards.

72-yard Drive
Vereb's dash around right end
on one of the rare pitchouts pulled
by quarterback Frank Tamburello
capped a 72-yard drive which was
started by Maryland with the sec-
ond half kickoff on a muddy turf
before 46,000'steamingly hot fans.
It was the first time that Mary-
land got moving as Ronnie Knox,
UCLA's great tailback, kicked and
passed them to the wall through
all of the first half and a lot of
the second.
The Terrapins, going into the
game ranked fifth, made one other
foray, to the UCLA five, after in-
tercepting a pass in the last three

Fierce Defense
A fiery Maryland defense led by
center Bob Pellegrinin let UCLA,!
12-7 conqueror of the Terrapins
last year, move goalward only once.
That was in the second period
when the Californians got inches
from the goal only to fumble and
have Pellegrini recover.
Pellegrini also intercepted a pass
as his tough, red-shirted defense-
men knocked UCLA to a minus 21
yards rushing. The Bruins from
Los Angeles, who walloped Texas
A&M, 21-0, last week, gained 551
running with the ball but were
smeared for losses of 76.
Knox did a yeoman job trying
to pierce the stout Maryland de-
fense by passing, completing nine
out of 14.
