Oregon State Overtakes Stanford, Neafs the Roses By Dick Cullum PALO ALTO, CAL. Oregon State moved a long way toward the Rose Bowl by rallying stubbornly for a 20-19 victory over Stanford here Saturday. A sunbathed crowd of 63,-000 saw the Beavers fight their way back from apparent defeat with a fourth-quarter rally that overcame Stanford's 19-7 lead. Oregon State also overcome Stanford's superiority in manpower and turned the Indians' dangerous passing attack into the winning breaks, Throughout the second half, Oregon State faltered because of fatigue in the 82-degfee heat. Key Plays The game turned on two second-half plays. , Near the end of the third period, Oregon State which had been . stalled since halftime, bit off a 59-yard gain on a flat pass from tailback Joe Francis to wingback Earnel Durden, . who was hauled down on the Stanford 15-yard line. Three plays later the Beavers had their second touchdown and John Clarke's extra-point kick was good. Stanford still led, 19-14. Snags Pass The second key play came a few moments later when Stanford's John Brodie tried a long pass from his 24 and Beaver fullback Tom Berry intercepted it in midfield, Seven plays later, Oregon State had its victory on a 21-yard second-down touchdown pass, from Francis to end Frank Negri. This was the Beavers' fifth victory in six games in the Pacific' Coast Conference race and establishes them in first place as well as in the favored position to go to the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. Scoring started from the opening kickoff, which Durden carried back to Oregon State's 38. The Beavers' reverse plays with Durden carrying kept the Stanford defense loose and Francis finished it off with three drives over his right tackle for the final 10 yards. Then Brodie got his passing UinAi- m f - --1t f t-u.0k IXHAAA' "a!- most perfectly covered." "It was a daring defense," said a scout, who wished his name withheld. "Evy gambled, that's what he did.

Although the conversion attempt was missed, leaving it at 7-6 for Oregon State, Stanford moved into the lead when it next got the ball, starting from its 20. Again Brodie hit his targets for big chunks of yardage. He completed three passes for a total of SO yards, then himself swept his right end untouched for. the final 3 yards and the touchdown. Again the extra point was mifsed. In the second Jialf, Stanford repeatedly abandoned its effective ground game to go into the air. ' But the Indians got their third touchdown on thrusts over the guards by Louis Valli and Gordon Young. .They moved the final 20 yards in four plays, HILLSDALE WINS, 12-0 LOCKPORT, ILL.

"It was a team victory," added Warmath. "I couldn't actually single but any one Iowa individual player as a star. - "But I had a feeling something was going to happen early k the game when Bob Schultz fumbled. "You can't make mistakes and beat a team like Iowa. It was a fine Iowa team, make no mistake about that." Warmath was in the same position .Evy was in at Iowa City last Saturday when Michigan came from behind to beat Iowa, 17-14. "We Were Up" Whipped in one of the most crucial games of his career, Warmath added: "I believe we were up, but you never know. "We started the boys slowly in practice this week because we didn't want to bring them up too fast, but Friday I thought we had the liveliest practice since I've been at Minnesota." Warmath found nothing wrong with his club's defensive labors,, but he said he's seen his Gophers perform better on offense. "Maybe Iowa's line had something to do with our offense. Please don't give the fans the idea I'm alibi-ing. Iowa is definitely a good team. "Which is usually the case the team which makes the fewer mistakes usually wins." The Gopher players, to a man, seemed dazed in their dressing room. They were groping for words, but their mistakes had them talking to themselves. Bob Hobert, Minnesota's tackle candidate for all-Amer ica honors, thought this was the second best Iowa team he played against in his three years. ; "They're Fighters" "That 1954 gang that came up here was the best one I've played against," said Hobert. "You've got to hand it to those Hawks. They're fighters. "We helped their cause by own own mistakes. Then, again, maybe that line may have had something to do with our mistakes. I'll say they were hitting hard and charging with plenty of gusto," Center Dean Maas, Minnesota captain, was carried off early in the game with a concussion but it was reported afterwards that he was not seriously hurt. Gopher halfback Dave Lindblom also suffered a concussion and was taken to a hospital for observation. The Gophers did respect one player most of all on the Iowa club Alex Karras.' "He's tough, fast, and reacts fast," said fullback Bob Blaklcy. "But it wouldn't be fair if you didn't also praise Suchy (Don), Bloomquist (Frank) and don't forget Gilliam (Frank). He's a great defensive end." Tony Cor-daro. p. FY ir x ai i. f rr,-T-rn... if . ' wmmm r-n a A -far1 A ..
