To Michigan's disadvantage is
the fact that the team is engaging
in its first season game against a
team who already has played
probably the toughest team on
the Pacific Coast. Last,week USC,
although beaten 20-0, gave a
powerful unit from Oregon State
somewhat of a scare in holding
them to only seven points in the

still suffering from the financial

MSU-Indiana Highlight Other Big Ten Openers
By The Associated Press
Hold your hat mama, the big
wheels of collegefootball are start-
ing in motion today.
The Big Ten opens its 1957 sea-
son with Indiana facing our north-
ern neighbors, Michigan State.
Indiana, with 1Q straight losing
seasons behind it, has little real
hope of toppling the fourth ranked
team in the nation, but it wants to
show that 'its new Wyoming-Ten-
nessee offense (side saddle T) has
Big Ten possibilities.
State, led by Jim Ninowski as
signal caller, is rated by experts
to be a three or four touchdown
Powerful Minnesota, led by the
only established quarterback in
the Big Ten; Bobby Cox, faces
Washington at Minneapolis, Min-
nesota is the favorite in this game.
Defending }Big Ten and Rose
Bowl champion Iowa, with stellar
Kenny Ploen graduated, will test
Randy Duncan as the man run-
ning the Hawkeyes against Utah
State at Iowa City.
Purdue faces Notre Dame, who
suffered through a terrible season
last year. Purdue outgained all
nine of its opponents while beating
only three last year. They will be
tough for the Irish to handle.
Notre Dame will field a more
experienced team than last year
when they lost to Purdue; 28-14.
Purdue, with star tackles Wayne
Farmer and Nick Mumley below
physical par, may not be able to
dominate line play again. The
Boilermakers, however, still have
fullback Mel Dillard who scored
two touchdowns in the '56 game.
Ohio State faces Texas Chris-
tian, at Columbus, and here the
Buckeyes must choose between two
green quarterbacks, Frank Krem-
blas and Andy Okulovich.
One of the Big Ten's conflicts
with the Pacific Coast, an old Rose
Bowl patsy of 10 years' standing,
is the nationally televised game of
the day between Northwestern and
Stanford at Palo Alto, Calif.
It's a tossup affair between a
pair of clubs rated about sixth in
their respective conferences, but
it should be interesting. Quarter-
backing for Northwestern will be
shared by two sophomore candi-
dates, Chip Holcomb and John
Wisconsin, which is host to once
beaten Marquette, tries Sidney
Williams at quarterback, who de-
veloped late last season, but who
is getting stiff competition from
soph Dale Hackbart.
Top College Teams Play
While Oklahoma Rests

there are only four seniors on his
first three teams.
Leading the big but slow USC
line are two very fine junior
tackles. Giant 6'5" 255 pound
Monte Clark, no relation to the
coach, and his running mate on
the right side Mike Henry are con-
sidered two of the finest tackles
in the country by Clark.
The backfield lacks both quick-
ness and size. Junior Quarterback
Jim Conroy is rated the hardest
runner, but is short on playing
time as a regular. Right half Tony
Ortega is the most experienced of
the backs and should be a depend-
Sophomores To Be Tested
Today's game should also pro-
vide several Wolverine sophomores
with their first taste of college
football. Certain to see some relief
action in the backfield are Stan
Noskin at quarterback, and Brad
Myers and Fred Julian at right
half. All three have looked quite
impressive in practice drills.
At end, Chuck Teuscher should
see some action behind *starter
Prahst, whose injured leg is still
in the healing stage. Teuscher,
however, also has a leg injury and
this may limit his use.
Also slightly injured is fullback
Herrnstein. At last report, he 'will
definitely start, but second stringer
Gene Sisinyak is expected to play
quite a bit.
On the coast, the consensus has
Michigan a two touchdown favor-
ite but Oosterbaan and company
are still playing it cautious and
making no predictions themselves.
The results of this game should
definitely give a pretty good pic-
ture of just how much of a chal-
lenge Michigan is going to make
for a return trip to California.

Braves' Hopes Rising
MILWAUKEE (?) - Bill Skow-

haughty New York Yankees off

about their favorites beating
Casey Stengel's perennial Ameri-

But even the most die-hard

Meanwhile, the Yankees rolled
to an easy 10-2 victory over the
Boston Red Sox yesterday.
In his manipulations to rest key
players, and experiment, prior to
the series, Casey Stengel gave El-
ston Howard his first major
league shot at first base in the
third inning --. moving Simpson
