Seek Win MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Minn*- sota'i football team, back in the full bloom of health for the first time since September, strives Sat. urday for a season-saving upset over Wisconsin in the year's windup windup game at Madison. Minnesota seldom has faced a Wisconsin team with smaller expectation expectation of winning. The powerful powerful Badgers, 6-M and second In the Big Ten, are the nation's fifth- ranked football team. Minnesota has only one victory In eight games. Face Tough Defense But strange things sometimes happen in a football season's twilight, twilight, such as they did two years ago at Madison when a doormat Wisconsin gained a 13-13 tie with a Minnesota team that missed the Rose Bowl by one touchdown a week earlier. Minnesota's problem Saturday is this: The Gophers will have to find some way of moving one of the toughest defenses in the country country with an attack that has no outstanding weapons. The Gophers' 39-12 victory over Michigan State last week was not so much a matter of Gopher firepower firepower as Spartan fizzles. Defensively, Minn esota will have to contain a top-grade quarterback, quarterback, somehing it hasn't done all season. The antagonist this time is Dale Hackbart, one of the best in the Big Ten. Minnesota will not have the backfield speed of the Badgers, nor their overall depth nor their drivesity of atack. But the Gophers have their re- liables in good condition again, and this could make them an obstinate obstinate football team even for a two-touchdown favorite. Jim Reese, his injured hand almost almost completely healed, will start at quarterback and Bob Soltis Soltis will be back at left half. With Zill Kauth running well at right half and Roger Hagberg show strong improvement each week at fullback, the Gopher backfield figures figures to be in its best form of the season. Bomstad Available Arlie Bomstad and Gary Melchert Melchert should furnish competent relief, relief, especially Bomstad.
