Michigan's football team began
practice yesterday afternoon for
the all-important Minnesota game
coming up this Saturday.
The Big Ten Conference office
announced Sunday that the game
at Minneapolis will be televised.
The local station will be WWJ-TV
(Channel 4). Game time will be
2:30 p.m.

Giants Tie for NFL Lead

against the hapless Northwestern
Also noticed for the first time
was the "jelling" of the backfield
into a potent offensive weapon.
With Jim Pace and Brad Myers at
the halfback slots, Jim Byers at
fullback and either Jim Van Pelt
or Stan Noskin at quarterback, the
Michigan attack proved to be
very effective.
Noskin started his first game for
Michigan and directed the team
with poise. He continued to pass
with extreme effectiveness.
As far as injuries were concern-
ed, the Wolverines have only one
new casualty, Mike Shatusky, the
tough little right halfback who
has started every game to date, is
in bad shape with a painful back
injury. He was not at practice yes-
End Gary Prahst, who appeared
briefly in Saturday's game, is in
only fair shape. He is still suffering
from a pulled leg muscle.
John Herrnstein appeared in
uniform for the first time in a
week. But the star fullback didn't
partake in any drills. His leg is
still bothering him and the possi-
bility of his playing in the Minne-
sota game is questionable.

The defending World Champion
New York Giants began their
move for another title Sunday as
the fourth week of, NFL action
came to a close.
Paced by ol veteran Charlie
Conerly, the Giants gave the
Pittsburgh Steelers a very thor-
ough lesson in football as they
beat the Steelers 35-0. Thus the
Giants rolled. to their thid
straight conquest and now share
the Eastern Division lead with the
Cleveland Browns.
Cleveland's f a v o r e d Browns
passed from the unbeaten ranks
as rookie quarterback Sonny Jur-
genson led the Philadelphia
Eagles to their first victory, 17-7.
In the Western Division, the De-
troit Lions defeated the Baltimore
Colts ,31-27 to give the Colts their
initial setback and the Lions a
share of the lead with the Colts
and San Francisco.
The Forty Niners loom as a very
definite threat to any Western
Division title aspirant. They
rolled to their third straight vic-
tory as they handily defeated the
Green Bay Packers, 24-14.

"As Matson goes so goes the
Cardinals." This is a very hack-
neyed expression prevalent es-
pecially among teams that play
the Chicago Cardinals. The
Washington Redskins found that
there is a great deal of truth in
the statement as Ollie Matson led
the Cards to a 44-14 rout of the
Skins. He scored twice and aver-
aged 12-yds.-per try.

Illinois Surprises
The fighting Illini, a team noted
for its upset potential, pulled an-
other shocker as it completely sur-
prised Minnesota, 34-13. The
Gophers, rated fourth in national
standings, never had a chance.
Bobby Mitchell teamed up with
Jack Delveaux and Tom Haller to
stymie the Gopher defense.
The combination of upsets sent
the race for the Big Ten title and
Rose Bowl bid into a tizzy.
Oklahoma, seeking revenge for
its displacement from the top
position in college football this
past week by MSU, had no prob-
lem regaining the top rung. The
combination of a Michigan State
loss and a thorough trouncing of
Kansas by the Sooners, 47-0, guar-
antee the Sooners the right to be
called the best college football
team in the nation for 1957, thus

Huber Notches Fourth
In Residence A' Circuit

Army, still blushing from its loss
to Notre Dame last week put in a
final bid for the Lambert Trophy
by downing Pittsburgh, 29-13.
Army showed its qualifications by
scoring more points in this game
than had been registered against
a Pitt team in three years.
Auburn Shows Power
Tenth ranked Auburn showed
once again its prowess as a defen-
sive giant by shutting out Georgia
Tech., 3-0.
Unscored upon, Auburn gave its
Southeastern Conference title
hopes a tremendous boost with the
victory. Twice Tech. had the ball
within Auburn's 10, but sparkling
defensive play by Jimmy Phillips
stopped the Engineers cold.
Observers who picked their own
personal top ten teams have been
shocked by the series of events
which took place this past week-
end. The Big Ten race especially
is a mixup. Iowa and Ohio State
are undefeated and lead the pack.

Lid Tonight
That thump, thump, thump you
hear is not your heart beating
from the overexertion of watch-
ing Saturday's football game. It's
professional basketball bouncing
through the door tonight to open
its twelfth season.
The opening game is a replay
of the Championship Series last
spring, with Boston at St. Louis.
Tomorrow night New York
plays St. Louis and Boston plays
Detroit at the Olympia in Detroit.

"The guy who said it first has
never been proven wrong, it's
great to be a winner.,
These words were scrawled on
the blackboard in the Detroit
Lions dressing room before Sun-
day's encounter with the Balti-
more Colts.
F o llo in g their sensational
31-27 comeback over the Colts the
Lions were living proof of this
High School Attitude
The clubhouse was reminiscent
of a high school locker room aft-
er the team had beaten a tradi-
tional rival. Members of the press
as well as assorted well wishers
mobbed Bobby Layne, Hopalong
Cassady, Coach George Wilson
and the rest of Detroit's heroes.
The Lions' comeback from a
27-3 deficit was so phenomenal
that it even brought resounding
cheers from the usually staid
press box at the final gun.
Sooners Atop
Poll Again;
MSU Eighth
By The Associated Press
The football experts who voted
Michigan State into top collegiate
ranking a week ago reversed their
opinion yesterday and put Okla-
homa back on top and the upset-
victim Spartans down in eighth
Michigan State was one of four
teams knocked out of a high
ranking in The Associated Press
weekly poll.

Detroit's number one hero was
Howard "Hopalong" C a s s a d y.
Cassady had his greatest day in
pro ball, scoring two TDs, includ-
ing the game winning marker,
and catching a pass on the one
yard line to set up another score.
Layne Praises "Hoppy"
Layne, a goat in the first half,
and then the engineer of the
Lions' comeback, had high praise
for Cassady.
"Cassady is a fine runner and
he's developing into an outstand-
ing receiver. Last year he worried
too much about catching the ball,
this year he is more concerned
with running the pass patterns
correctly. As a result he has be-
come a better receiver," said
"Early in the fourth quarter
Cassady told me that he thought
we could run a pass pattern along
the left sideline," confided Layne,
"The first timeaIdhad a chance
to try it I did and it resulted in
the game-winning touchdown."
Next week the Lions, now in a
three-way tie for first, meet the
Rams in Los Angeles in the open-
ing game of a three week road
trip which also takes them to San
Francisco and Washington.
