An eight-year drought finally ended for University of Cincinnati here Saturday when the Bearcats put down Wichita's Shockers, 19-7, to win their first Missouri Valley Conference football championship. ' Coming from Dehina after the Shockers moved 43 yards for their only touchdown early In the first quarter, the Bearcats called on every ounce of muscle and all their legerdemain to score In each of the last three periods. But it had to be the defense that stood out for Cincinnati in this furiously played struggle. Only twice after their only touchdown did the Shockers advance past midficld both times to l!C's 44-yard line. And both times, on the next series of downs, the charging Bearcats pushed Wichita back deep in its own territory, bottling the Shockers so completely that they never knew next where to look for a crashing, booming UC linebacker.

It wag the first defeat for Wichita here since 1962, numbing a sparse homecoming day crowd of 9278. The Shockers now are l-l in the Mo-Val, and 3-5 on the year. for a while this warm, cloudy afternoon the Shockers appeared ready to spring . an upset on the Bearcats, and it didn't take long to know that Wichita meant business. Bill Bailey, making his first start at fullback for Gncinnati Enquirer rase 1-E Sunday, November 15, 1964 mmmmmmmmmmmm the Cats, coughed up the ball on a questionable play only two minutes Into the game, and It was debatable long after the game whether he actually fumbled or had it stolen. In any event, Wichita Immediately hammered 46 yards in 10 plays with a 15-yard quick pass from quarterback Lou Confessor! to Mike Souter doing most of the damage. Halfback Harold Myers went the final yard to score, and fullback Pete DIDonato kicked the point to make It 7-0 with -Enauirtr (Slrtub) Photo Runner the Xavler-Detrolt game Saturday night at XSvier. The Muskies won, 38-27. MVC 9:14 still left in the first period. Then the Bearcats twice marched to within the shadow of the goal posts in the first period, once to the seven, again to the 18, but a pass interception in the end zone and a blocked fourth-down pass stopped both attempts. But early In the second quarter the Bearcats came to life. Starting on their 22, they hammered 78 yards to a touchdown In eight plays. They were aided immeasurably when, back to punt on the UC 27 with a fourth-and-five situation, Wichita substituted at the last second and was penalized five yards for having too many men on the field. Only five plays after that break quarterback Brig Owens pulled off the play of the day. He caught the Shockers off balance, passing to Errol Prisby on a screen to the left. Dick Fugere sprang Prisby loose with a key block, and the Bearcat sprinted 53 yards 38-27 boards first on Beier's one-yard plunge. Then the Muskies drove 66 yards, with Davis sliding over for the equalizer. Assenmacher followed up that with his 34-yard dash to the goal and less than two minutes later Williams stabbed Stofko with a 58-yard scoring play. In the second quarter, the Muskies from their 20, inched ahead, 21-14, when Williams pitched a 21-yard-er to Eysoldt in the end zone and followed with a two-point conversion" on a pass to Stofko. Immediately, though, the Titans hit back, zooming 73 yards with Waring crashing the final one yard. Then shortly before halftime, the Muskies, using Davis' slashing runs and Williams' passes, fled from their 22 to Detroit's 19. On the last scrimmage play of the half, Dankel arched his 36-yard field goal and the Muskies were half way home to their fourth victory against four losses and a tie. Quinlan latched onto Waring's pass 37 seconds into the second half and ankled 25 yards untouched behind two key blocks. And some four minutes later Williams, hurling the ball some 60 yards In the air, buttoned Eysoldt again In the end zone. Beier's dive over the goal from the one after the Muskies surrendered on downs at their 20, closed out the scoring, though both mounted threats in the closing period. The victory was only Xavier's second in the nine-game series with Detroit. The Titans, who have won only six games in the last three years, stumbled for the sixth time this season against three triumphs. DETROIT 14 6 7 0-27 XAVIER .......... 13 11 14, 0-38 .

Owens kicked the point, and it was all tied up, 7-7. Neither team could move the ball for the rest of the half, but immediately after the second half kickoff Cincinnati swept 650 yards to score in nine plays, showing the most power of the day. With Nelson and Bailey doing almost all the work, breaking loose on runs of 15, 12 and 16 yards, all over the left side in an Irresistible attack. Nelson sped over left tackle for 16 yards and the touchdown to give the 'Cats a 13-7 lead, but Owens' extra-point kick attempt was wide to the left. Later in the period Cm-' clnnati went to the Wichita three, but missed scoring, and if there was one dark spot in the UC victory it was the fact that four times in the game the Bearcats got inside the 10 and couldn't go over. Cincinnati's last TD march early in the fourth stanza covered 70 yards in 11 plays. It was set up on a 48-yard run by Errol Prisby when he escaped from a trap deep in the UC back-field, cut back, shook off four tacklers, utilized a key block by Roger Perdrix on Wichita's Jim Beveridge, and went to the Shocker 11. After then moving to a first down on the Shocker one-yard line, it took UC four smashes into the line before Nelson finally slammed over to make it 19-7. Prisby tried to run for the two extra points, and failed, but Cincinnati now had the game locked. WICHITA STATE ... 7 0 0 0-7 CINCINNATI 0 7 6 6-19 , Wichita-Myers, 1, plunge (DIDonato kick).

It's All Over Early As OSU Wins, 10-0, Over Northwestern BY PAUL RITTF.R Of The Enquirer Staff COLUMBUS Better, yes. But Ohio State's offense still showed the scars of last weekend's 27-0 loss to Penn State and the Buckeyes had to rely on an excellent defense to squeeze out a 10-0 victory over Northwestern in their Big Ten Conference clash here Saturday. The victory left coach Woody Hayes' Bucks undefeated In five Big Ten engagements and leading the conference. But the showing against Northwestern indicates that next week's deciding match against Michigan here will have to see an Improved OSU scoring punch. Saturday's game started off as though Ohio would play out an afternoon of toying with Northwestern, but with all scoring coming In the first half, the Wildcats showed some defensive ability of their own.

Booting specialist Steve Dreffer was back to punt for Ohio, but instead he passed to halfback Doug Drenik who carried for the first down at the Wildcat 28 yard stripe. Seven plays later fullback Bill Sander, the former Cincinnati McNicholas workhorse, bowled over his own right guard from five yards out to score. Placement specialist Bob Funk added the conversion point and Ohio led, 7-0, at the end of the first period. The score came with 5:03 remaining in the Initial period. The startling point was that the first down play was the first time senior Drenik had carried the ball all season. In his entire Buckeye grid career he has carried only 13 times for a total of 58 yards. That was the extent of Ohio's touchdown potential for the game although the Buckeyes did drive to the Northwestern one-yard line with 17 seconds left in the game, but lost the ball on downs. Funk, a 236-pound junior, gave Ohio three cushion points in the second per-; lod when he booted a 37-yard field goal with less than three minutes left in the first half. The return of Cincinnati Purcell's Tom Kiehfuss to the starting unit as Ohio's defensive left end admittedly bolstered the fine play of that unit. But it was Junior guard Bill Ridder who : consistently stopped Northwestern rushes up the middle and several tlwes smothered Wildcat quarter Palmer Ji -Enquirer (Bob Free) Sequence Photos back Tom Myers as he was trying to pass his way out of trouble. With Kiehfuss doing an outstanding job containing the Wildcat sweeps, and Ridder handling the !nside, the Bucks looked good. There were, of course, moments of glitter in that Ohio offensive, especially when sophomore halfback Bob Rein did some ball-carrying or pass-catching. Rein carried 10 times for a net of 29 yards, but his, receiving on passes by Ohio quarterback Don Unverferth was stunning. He latched onto five Unverferth tosses for 54 yards and many of these were key catches to keep Ohio drives alive and gobble up all-important possession time. Unverferth, an excellent passer during his prep years at Dayton Chaminade, completed 13 of 26 passes for 116 yards, accounting for almost hair or State's 241 total yards gained. Ohio had 17 first downs, six of them through the air. Northwestern could muster only nine first downs and netted a slim 144 yards total. Senior Wildcat quarterback Tom Myers connected on only five of 13 throws and had one Intercepted in the Ohio end zone by linebacker John Fill. That stifled a strong Northwest-em drive which appeared headed for a second-period score. The Wildcats had taken possession on their own 27 and had marched to the Buckeye 22 before Fill spoiled the threat. The defeat marked the end of the season for coach Alex Agase's Wildcats, registering a 3-6 season that showed only two wins in seven Big Ten games. Ohio avenged last year's 17-8 loss to NU and put an end to a two-game Wildcat win combination In this series. The two schools have met 40 times now, with Ohio winning 27 and Northwestern claiming 12. There was one tie. Purdue's 14-0 loss to Minnesota Saturday virtually eliminated the Boilermakers from Big Ten title hopes, leaving it all up to Ohio and Michigan when they battle next week. , OHIO STATE 1 0 0-10 Ohio State-Sandor, 5. run (Funk, k;tkifl Ohio State-Fur. 37, fielo) goal. .-LV.A.!euVii a-atwVakwgrisKaa.a(.'
