Slam, Pass, Slam as Iowa Rolls to Tie It I Dm Mo'nti Sunday Regiifer Navtmbar 1, ltS7 O.C SHORT BURSTS i CAP 2 DRIVES IOWA- Continued from Page Ona class, but it doesn't help them in the Big Ten standings Smother Michigan Iowa never played before as large a crowd in it regular season game. That crowd saw the Hawks completely engulf the Wolverines in the early minutes. Iowa was harrassing the passer, gang tackling, smothering just about every attempt. Michigan got nowhere In those opening minutes losing 26 yards the first five times it tried running with the ball. After the quick chance of scenes that fol lowed, some of us got the notion that we must have droDDed in et a different came. The Hawks erabbid a 7-0 lead halfway through the first quarter and yielded Michigan only one first cown in the period. That, incidentally, came on a pass. But the second quarter was not even a minute old when Michigan swung a , hilling punch. Don Norton had just punted for Iowa. Jim P:xe, flying Michigan halfback, fielded the ball. Ud the field he came. A couple of timely blocks got him to midfield. There he slowed, feinted, maneuvered against the Iowa tacklers. Norton and Gene Veit had shots at him, but he streaked away. Pace ran that punt 65 yards for- a touchdown. They say it was the longest run he ever made for Micni nan. It was o.ie of the costli- est ever made against Iowa for it more than tied the score at 7-7. It shook Iowa's confidence and transformed the powerful aggressor of the first quarter into a harried outfit fighting for its life in the second.

" if fEigliTl ' L. -' ' fr?k 1 XARRAS (H v, i' VAN PELT IM) ) ... p Iowa's Rush Too Rugged for Van Pelt Michigan's Jim Van Pelt filled the air with passes against Iowa at Ann Arbor Saturday afternoon, but not when Hawkeyes' best pass defense this hard-charging threesome of end Jim Gibbons and tackles Alex Karras and Dick Kline was rush ing him like this. This combined smothering job ended up with 7-yard loss for Van Pelt and forced Michigan to try unsuccessful third quarter field goal. Game between Big Ten giants ended in 21-21 tie. PHOTO BI JACK BRINTON VIA SPECIAL WIREPHOTO (AP) fumbled after he crossed the goal, for the touch down was allowed. The fiery Wolverines, so inept before Iowa's withering assault in the first quarter, kicked the point and had Iowa's proud champions stunned. Nobody could quite recall when Iowa ever had given up 21 points in a matter of 10 minutes. Iowa's Turn Few of the customers were Michigan did miss one ex- ready to count Iowa out of tra point, incidentally, and it it, however. The Hawks came after that first touch- packed too much dynamite, down. Unfortunately for They proved that even in Iowa, the Hawkeyes were the remaining minutes of the offside. Jim Van Pelt made the conversion on his second try and added the other two that eventually let the wol verines avert defeat. The Pace touchdown gave first half, when passes fol lowed by laterals quickly moved the ball into Michigan territory. But it was not until after the intermission that the zone and the Wolverines would have had the ball at their 20, except Iowa was offside. Prescott kicked again and Pace returned it all the way to midfield. Directed by quarterback Stan Nos-kin, Michigan advanced to Iowa's 20. On a third-down play, Nos- kin fumbled and big tackle Dick Klein recovered for Iowa at the 19. After that the two teams exchanged punts before the Hawks used up the last 3 minutes punching away ort the ground. Iowa's first touchdown, in the first quarter, was a trib ute to Alex Karras. He raced in to rush Van Pelt, drove him back 10 yards, and in lunging for the tackle hit Van Pelt's arm. Van Pelt dropped the ball and Gibbons recov ered for Iowa on the Michl gan 10. Four plays later, John Nocera smashed through for the touchdown. Statistically, Michigan was outdistanced. Iowa made twice as many first downs and just about twice as much yardage. Michigan moved only 56 yards on the ground in 60 minutes. Iowa used 10 ball . Michigan a tremendous lift. In I Hawks rolled. They received a matter of minutes the Wol- the second-half kickoff and verines were clawing at the I moved to the attack. They Hawks again. Into Wrong Hands Hawk quarterback , Randy Duncan had been forced to leave the field for Iowa when he blacked out temporarily. Veit was at the throttle. Four plays after Michigan's touchdown, Veit sailed a pass down the field. End Jim Gibbons went for It, hit it and deflected it into the hands of Jim Byers of Michigan on the Iowa 44-yard line. It mattered not at all that Michigan promptly lost 15 yards on a clipping penalty and that Van Pelt, bounced around by Gibbons, lost nine more yards. Michigan needed 29 yards- for the first down and got it. Van Pelt burned his passes home. He hit Walter Johnson with a short throw and John son picked up 17 yards. Next Van Pelt rammed a throw into Gary Prahst's mitts and Prahst put the ball on the Iowa 35. 2 Down, Then Bang Michigan was on fire. The stands got into the act with tremendous support for the Wolverines With the ball on Iowa's 31, the Hawks broke up two passes. Van Pelt fired again Prahst raced into the area patroled by Ray Jauch, Iowa, and caught the ball. Jauch hit him at the seven, a glancing shot that left Prahst partially on his feet. He stumbled on to the goal for a 31-yard scoring play. The conversion kick put Michigan ahead, 14-7, but that wasn't enough. Within five minutes another Mich gan toucnaown was on xne scoreboard. Another Theft Duncan was back in the ball game for Iowa. He threw a pass toward Bob Jeter in a congested area. Mike Shatu sky of Michigan intercepted it and Michigan took over on the Iowa 25. Two passes, with Stan Noskin throwing, put the ball on the Iowa three. Two slams at the Iowa line got the rest of it. On the touchdown play, a sneak from six inches out, Noskin appeared to have fumbled. The ruling must have beea that he slammed it out for a couple of first downs before Duncan varied the procedure with a pass to Gibbons. Then back o the ground guns. At the Michigan 22 Duncan threw again, this time to Norton for 11 yards. Don Horn, on a fullback draw play, raced through for 17 important yards and a little farther along smashed three yards into the end zone for Iowa's second touchdown. The Hawks went 68 yards on that march, using 13 plays. Stone Wall at 20 The complexion of the game was different now. Iowa still trailed, 21-14. Michigan took the ensuing kickoff and did some marching on its own. Iowa, guarding for passes, gave up some ground yardage. The Wolverines moved 56 yards, but they couldn't get past the Iowa 20. Instead, they were stacked up back on the Iowa 27. A field goal attempt by Van Pelt from the 34 didn't carry much of a threat. So Iowa took over. At the start of the fourth quarter, Michigan, forced to punt, dropped one dead at the Michigan 48 and th Hawks went to work. Mike Hagler bounding ahead. Bill Gravel slashing for yards; Duncan passing to Gibbons, then to Horn, and the Hawks were rolling. From the 19-yard line, Dun can drilled a pass to Horn, the Detroit sophomore who was to give Michigan quite a headache. Horn caught the ball, feinted, faked, played it like a cat, and moved ahead to the Michigan three. Michigan was tough. Iowa needed four downs to get the ball over, Duncan bowling across on the last try after Horn had hammered to within a foot of the goal Bob Prescott stepped up for the vital kick. There was nothing doubtful about it. He drove the ball between the posts, just as he had the two previous conversions. Noskin Fumbles Michigan got a break on the ensuing kickoff. Prescott sailed his boot into the end Game Is Fine on Color TV, Except for the Last Picture By Ogden Dwight From where I sat, which was right in front of a color television set in WHO-TV's audition room here, everything about the Iowa-Michigan game looked fine except the final shot of that great big blue carriers and seven of them contributed 20 , yards or more. Iowa relied mostly on the unbalanced line, stationing its rugged tackles, Karras and Dick Klein, shoulder to shoulder. However, the Hawks used a balanced line at times.

The dirty yellow white lights read: 21 21 Let me say for the record that I do not approve of that score, but the way it showed up on the rainbow machine, the Hawkeyes in their white traveling jerseys, yellow hel mets and cold pants were giving the home team in maize and blue a mighty rough afternoon. Brilliant Green A football telecast in color is something to see. First there's the brilliant green of the turf, which you can tell has been tended like a golf green or the covering of a uranium mine which in a sense it is because that sta dium at Ann Arbor with its 101,001 seats was just about full of sporting enthusiasts who pay a lot of freight Sat urdays. Maybe it was haze or something, but that huge crowd all around the rim of that vast dish had a blue tinge, though that's not hard to understand considering that the half-time score was Michigan 21, Iowa 7. Most of us out here know the colorful S. U. I. High landers' tartans scarlet, blue, black and white, and the University of Michigan's pre cision band snapped to in navy blue and yellow trim Added halftime attraction was a percussion barrage by jazz drummer Gene Krupa on a slate-blue platform. Hard to Follow Meanwhile down in the locker rooms . . . The Hawk-eyes got fired up and the Wolverines cooled off and during the third and fourth quarters the cameramen handling the two mammoth color machines for the special NBC mobile tint truck from Camden, N. J., were having trouble following the ball. Color cameras aren't as flexible as ordinary ones, being so much bigger, not to I mention costing about $85, 000 apiece or more than four times as much, so they're not something you throw around like a vest-pocket Leica. You might say they are portable if you have ideal circum stances and eight or 10 men Anyway they give ajine view of a football game even if the outcome of same is in furiating. A Memory Once the camera gave us a shot across the field off to the right at about the 30-yard line, so I looked pretty close because it appeared that somebody had my seat, right where I watched my first Iowa-Michigan game on Nov, 11, 1933. I remember it extra well because I was in some disrepute among the fraternity brothers down on Oxford Road for committing treason by sitting on the Iowa side but what else could I do, because on that Iowa team were the snaky Colfax All - American Joe Laws and crashing Dick Crayne whom I had watched pulverize the Little Six for Fairfield all through high school? So I sat on the Iowa side and watched Iowa roll out with a great third quarter although they Jost 10-6, as this accompanying 1933 headline shows. Now it's pretty sobering in way to sit in Des Moines and see all the color of the stadium you knew so well so long ago and wonder what some of the players you knew on that team are doing now, and work every day with Joe -aws daughter sitting at the next desk. - But Time makes things kind of smudgy and if you think I approve of that 21-21score ou're making a grievous er ror and I am in disrepute again because althougn l watched the game in Des Moines you might say that this time I was sitting on the Michigan side. KARRAS PICKED FOR HULA BOWL WHAT OTHER WRITERS SAID By Staff Writer A NN ARBOR, MICH. u Here are samples of what sports writers had to say about Saturday's Iowa-Michi gan 21-21 tie: Tommy Devlne, Detroit Free Press Two football gi ants traded knockout punches Saturday and then had to settle for a draw, 21-21. This was a strange game in many ways . . , a game in which the outcome hung on little things . . . and a contest in which the outcome prob ably was ' unsatisfactory to everybody but one man who sat through the tense strug gle. . The man to whom the deadlock was acceptable oddly was Forest Evashev-ski, Iowa coach. Since taking over the Hawks six seasons ago, Evy has been unable to beat Mich igan. So, in this meeting, Evy was perfectly willing to settle for half a loaf rather than shoot the. works down the stretch and try for a victory as Michigan did a year ago against Iowa when Michigan won with only 66 seconds of play remaining. . . That Michigan touch-down came with 66 seconds left, but, after a long drive that consumed much of the last quarter. Leo Fischer, Chicago American Iowa staged a second- half rally to score twice and wind up a grueling battle with Michigan in a 21-21 tie Saturday afternoon. Despite the two touch downs which overcame Michigan 21-7 halftime lead the crowd of 90,478 booed the Iowans as they obviously played to get a tie when they received the ball with less than three minutes remaining They ran seven plays into the line, even the last one with 18 seconds remaining. Wilfred Smith, Chicago Tribune Jim Pace. 190 pound halfback, by blazing speed thrilled 90,478 gathered in Michigan stadium with 65-yard touchdown return of an Iowa punt. Michigan led,- 21-7, at the half, but only had set the stage for the Hawkeyes. The iowans tied the score, 21-21 with a pair of second-half touchdowns. ... The Hawkeyes obviously were satisfied with a tie when they stalled the waning seconds through controlling the ball by two successive first downs. Cornhuskers Kick Away 14-12 Decision to Kansas By Special Correspondent LINCOLN, NEB.

UrANHATTAN. KAN. CT 1VL Oklahoma was any thing but nighty Saturday and had to sweat out a 13-0 victory over a souped-up Kansas State football team that battled its heart out for an upset The Sooners, rated second nationally, struck for a touchdown in the second quarter and another in the third. They racked up their forty-sixth consecutive victory before 15,000 on a cold, cloudy day. Kansas State, with a mediocre 2-4-1 record, played Oklahoma to first quarter, and refused to let the roof fall in at any time. , End Don Zadnik and halfback Ralph Pfeifer of Kansas dominated the game with tre mendous defensive effdrts. Oklahoma scored its first touchdown early in the sec ond period after Clendon Thomas ran back a punt 17 yards to K-State's 35. Thomas made the last six yards on a slice over tackle 10 plays later. Quarterback Carl Oodd converted. Blocked Kick A blocked punt eased the way for Oklahoma's other touchdown in the third period. Guard Dick Corbitt blocked Keith Wilson's punt and end Steve Jennings captured it on the Kansas State 43. It took six plays for the touchdown, halfback Bobby Boyd scoring from the one. Dave Baker's kick for the conversion was to the right of the goal posts. Midfield Kansas State frequently moved the ball between the 35-yard stripes and reached the Oklahoma 27 late in th third period before the Sooners, led by guard Bill Krisher, blanketed the attack. Oklahoma . picked up 232 yards rushing but, as in th case of Kansas State's 120 yards, most of the moving was well away from scoring territory. The longest play of tha game was Oklahoma's 22-yard pass in the second quarter. It did not figure in the scoring. "The longest run was 18 yards in th ''fourth period. That one was out of the scoring picture, too. Pfeifer waa the leading ground-gainer with 53 on 14 carries. The unusually tough Kansas State defense held Thomas to only 43 yards of It carries.
