Iaddock Stars on Drive
To Winning Touchdown


BOULDER, COLO (A3-Trailing
19-6 at halftime, Oklahoma's top-
rated football team struck for two
third period touchdowns on the
brilliant running of halfbacks
Tommy McDonald and Clendon
Thomas to defeat underdog Colo-
rado 27-19 yesterday.
The unranked Coloradans scored
in the first four minutes on a
blocked punt and sailed for two
second quarter touchdowns with
a furoius single wing assault. The
touchdown trips coverei 55 and 70
That shocked the Sooners, fa-
vored to win by four tochdowns,
r for only a period. They came roar-
ing back after the halftime rest
on touchdown drives of 80 and 48
yards. McDonald and Thomas de-

livered the key gains behind the
charged up Oklahoma line.
Midway in the fourth period the
Sooners wrapped it up with a
magnificent 91-yard march capped
by quarterback Jimmy Harris'
17-yard pass to Thomas in the
end zone.
Colorado bolted to a 7-0 lead
after four minutes of play when
guard John Wooten blocked Okla-
homa fullback Billy Pricer's at-
tempted third down quick kick on
the Sooner 10. The ball bounced
into the end zone with Colorado
fullback John Bayuk recovering.
Oklahoma struck back late in
the first quarter with a 45-yard
touchdown march climaxed with
a 35-yard scoring pass from Har-
ris to McDonald.

History Repeats
Iowans were wondering if his-
tory would repeat itself ... it did.
Take nothing away from the
Hawkeyes. They all but demol-
ished the Wolverines in that sec-
ond quarter. With Ken Ploen and
Randy Duncan alternating the
signal calling chores, Evashevski's
eleven made its move.
Duncan hit halfback Del Kloew-
er with a 13-yd. scoring pass at
8:05 and Ploen raced 33 yards
into the end zone less than five
minutes later.
Ploen gave the Wolverines head-
aches all day, fading back to pass,
sometimes doing so, but more often
keeping the ball and running for
long gains. Alex Karras, a huge
tackle, led the rugged Iowa line.
Michigan Coach Ben Oosterbaan

special to The Daily
IOWA CITY, Iowa-Forest Evashevski spoke yesterday for the
record Iowa-partisan crowd after his squad's defeat.
"It looks like we just can't beat them."
What else could the Iowa coach say after suffering another bitter
defeat at the hands of Michigan.
But, quite in contrast to his tight-lipped display of temper after
last year's defeat at Ann Arbor, this was a calm, though terribly
disappointed head coach. Last year he had issued a brief statement to
the press and had returned to the dressing room, refusing to answer
any further questions.
Now he had learned to believe that anything could happen to his
team when it plays Michigan and his bitterness was replaced by
stoicism. "We just can't beat 'em," he repeated.
It wasn't just fate, however, for Michigan. The Wolverines won
the game by outplaying and outcharging Iowa in the crucial second
half. Coach Bennie Oosterbaan decided early that depth might be
the key to victory and substituted early to a much greater degree
than he had done in previous games This left Michigan with a seem-
ingly much fresher team when the time for the "big push" came in
the late stages of the game.
Most of the members of Michigan's first three lines saw plenty
of action. Only second-string guard Jerry Marciniak was completely
missing because of a chest injury.
Pressure Mounts-.
As the pressure mounted on the trailing Wolverines late in the
game, key players were available for heavy duty. Michigan's line
finally pushed the tired Hawkeyes.
The openings were cleared for the necessary running yardage.
especially for fullback John Herrnstein.
Yesterday, Jim Maddock's passes were less spectacular than in
last year's Iowa game, when he threw to ends Ron Kramer and Tom
Maentz; but his throwing came at vital points when the climactie
Wolverine drive threatened to stall.
It was a different set of backfield heroes for Michigan yesterday.
Terry Barr was reduced to an inspiring token-appearance in the final
period, Jim Pace had fewer of his dazzling runs and Jim Van Pelt
saw less action than usual.
But Maddock, John Herrnstein and Mike Shatusky did more
"than could be expected," according to Oosterbaan. Ron Kramer also
played a rugged game, especially when the chips were down.
Shatusky, a halfback from Menominee, had played only sparingly
before-today's date, behind Barr and Ed Shannon. Yesterday he came
into his own with spirited running which produced both of Michigan's

out a full measure of revenge

a 33-0 Big Ten football triumph

Striking back with a furious
five-touchdown assault after last

sent them spinning off the top of

combined a crisp offense and a
never-yielding defense and nearly
ran the ragged Badgers out of
Macklin Field.
