It was just about the first time the Spartans had visited the Michigan end of the field. The Spartans offensive sledge, completely missing except for the last few minutes of the first half, smashed into the Wolverines. Michigan yielded two first downs. But Michigan wouldn't budge further. So on fourth down, with seven yards needed, John Matsko came out of his center position and drilled a field goal between the bars for Michigan State.

The Falcons played sensationally in the second half to pile up their big advantage after holding only a 13-7 lead at halftime. The Bulldogs just didn't have the manpower to cope with the fine Ohio crew. The running of Vic De-Orio, 5-5, 155-pound speedster, and Jack Giroux, 200 pound halfback; the passing of Don Nehlen, and the all around line play of Harold Peek and Ken Russell sparked Bowling Green. DeOrio and Girous were consistent ground gainers against the Bulldog defense. And Nehlen was accurate with his passes, throwing for two touchdowns. Errors Costly Spirited Bowling Green took advantage of several Drake errors to score four of its touchdowns after the Bulldogs lost the ball three times on fumbles and twice when they failed to make first DRAKE.
