quarterback Jim Maddock guided
Michigan down the field as the
clock ticked the seconds away.
Shatusky, who had scored the
first touchdown, ground out the
final four yards with only 1:06

Away Games High Spots
These two games, the only two
away-from-home games of the
season, were actually the high
spots of the year. The Maize and
Blue provided lots of thrills for
the home fais. too, but unfortu-
nately, they lost two games before

It was a dark, rainy day in Ann
Arbor, but the dreary weather was
nothing compared to the gloom
that spread over the campus
when the mud dried the evening
of Saturday, October 7, 1956.
It was generally conceded that
wne Wolverines }ad outplayed the
tIsky Spartan, They surpassed
tnenm in almost every statistical
department; the only drawback
was that they failed to score.
Michigan State put together a
third period field goal by Johnny
Matsko and a fourth period
touchdown by Dennis Mendyk and
made them stand up for a 9-0
Breaks Balance Out
Things have a way of evening
out in sports and this was one of
those ways. The previous year,
Michigan converted two breaks
into touchdowns and won 14-7,
although run ragged by State.
The other less came' before a
record home coning crowd and
cost Michigan the Little Brown
Jug. The Mincsota game was one
of great contrasts; Michigan dom-

after the inteiimission.
Barr scored for Michigan on the
first play of the second peric to
get the Woverxnes off and rm
ning. So superirr did the Waiver-
ines look in the first half that
scarcely a soul batted an eyelash
when time ran out for the Blue'
on Minnesota's four-yard line at
halftime. Everyone figured they'd
simply score the next time.
But Gopher coach Murray War-
math apparently had magic words
for his team at halftime. Led by
the inspired play of quarterback
Bobby Cox, who scored twice,
Minnesota never did give Michi-
gan that other touchdown, but
scored three themselves and
wound up on the long end of a
Made the Difference
As later events proved, these
two setbacks were enough to keep
tihe Woverines out of 'the running
for Conference honors. Still,
Michigan cn look back or the
