Illinois Pits Nation's Top Offense Against Syracuse's Third-Ranked Rushing Defense IN AND OUT—Mickey Bates, left, hitting inside,, nml .1. C. Caroline, rambling outside, sophomore Negro halfbacks, behind a rapidly-charging line, transformed Illinois from a supposed Big Ten second-division squad to a definite championship threat. (NEA) CHAMPAIGN, 111.—Illinois, surprise of die still young 1953 foot- hall season, pits the nation's top rushing offense against Syracuse's third-ranked rushing defense in a headline interseclional tilt in Memorial Stadium at 1:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon. The. Ivy League representative, with a line that averages 215 pounds per man and a strong passing attack, appears to have qualities necessary to give Coach Hay Eliot's young hosts a trouble- filled afternoon.

Against that impressive threat, Eliot will field a team still showing results of a bruising battle with Minnesota last week. Guard Wally Vernasco is definitely sidelined with a bad knee, and several others remain on the "doubtful" list. Illinois has been particularly hard hit through the middle. In addition to Vernasco, guards John Bauer and Jan Smid are nursing ankle and knee injuries, respectively. Center Herb Borman is recovering from being shaken on a punt return by a head-on collision with Steve Myrha, 215-pound Minnesota tackle. Borman's replacement, Jack Chamblin, has an ankle injury. Fullback Ken Miller and Quarterback Em Lindbeck of the second team also have ankle injuries. Syracuse, too, reports severa injuries at key spots. Regular end Ray Perkins and reserve halfback Bill Wetzel are on the list of cripples, with Wetzel definitely sidelined for the Illinois game. With Illinois' Vernasco and Syracuse's Wetzel the only players definitely off squads for the game, it appears likely that both outfits will be able to field regular first teams. Illinois halfback J. C. Caroline, sensation of the season, will be out to add yardage to his 668 total which ranks him first in the nation in rushing offense and fourth in total offense. Caroline has piled up his impressive total in only four games, and leads his closest competitor, Imer of Montana, by 129 yards, despite the fact that Imer has played five games. Caroline needs only 162 more yards to Caroline and Bates have been mainstays in an attack which has carried Illini through four games without a defeat. Meanwhile, Syracuse has compiled a 3-1 record, losing its first game of the season in final minutes at Penn State last Saturday.

Caroline setting the individual record pace, Illinois is weil on its way to new Big Ten team ground gaining marks. In two league games, Caroline has netted 397 yards — averaging 8.8 per play — and an average of 198.5 per game. With this impetus, the Illini have zipped to the top in team attack with an average of 421 yards, 368 of them on the ground. This total offense exceeds the record average of 415 set by Wisconsin in 1952. Illinois also is well ahead of the record rushing mark of 320 yards per game set by Michigan in 1943. Wisconsin, although playing only one Big Ten game thus far, ranks secortd to Illinois in total offense with 351 yards against Purdue, 313 of them by rushing. Billy Bratt, an end turned halfback sprinted 113 yards in four trips — a play average of 28.2 — for the Badgers in the Purdue engagement. Michigan State tops the defense department, holding opponents to an average gain per game of 174 yards and only 2.85 per play.

Iowa's Rushing Game Is One of i \Best in Nation By ED SAINSBURY United Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (UP) — Forest Eva- shevaski's Iowa football team has a .500 record so far, with one of the nation's best rushing games, but the former Michigan blocking back feared today somebody might the boom one of these days. "They haven't got us defeased yet,'-' he said. "We're the only team in the country running the split-T with an unbalanced line and nobody's figured out how to stop it. "We haven't had the same defense used on us twice, and I'm afraid that one of these days somebody will figure it out, and we'll have to pass. "Our passing hasn't been too good," he said, "but we haven't had yards per game, .552 and 165. and Michigan tional Football League champions,! C. R.

Evashevski was pleased with the development of his second Hawkeye squad, and admitted he was building for next year and even; the year after that. i "We're a green team," he said,! "We took 38 men to Michigan last, week and 21 of them were soph-, omores. Our first line has five, seniors and our first backfield one. I Our second line lias six sophomores and we've got one complete sophomore backfield. "Then we should get some help next year from our freshman team. They've got a couple of backs that should help us, and I've said right along I'm not worried about the line. "We really split that line," he said, motioning with both hands to indicate the distance he stations the guard away from the center. "Sometimes he's out a yard and a half or two yards, and that can pose a little problem for the defense. We spread the whole line that way, and it's been tough for them to figure out." Statistics show how potent the Hawkeye rushing .'1 s been. In four games Iowa has averaged 271 yards to rank sixth in the nation in ground gaining while racking Washington State, 54-12, and Wyoming, 21-7, and losing to Michigan State, 21 to 7, and to Michigan, 14-13. The Hawks were 10th in total offense with a 357.3-yard per game average. This week Iowa will be favored to collect its first Big Ten victory, facing Indiana, a team which hasn't won a conference contest since it heat the Hawkeyes, 20-13, in the second game last season. The contest will be one of four league matches with Michigan at Minnesota, Michigan State at Purdue and Ohio State at Wisconsin in other conference matches. Non- conference battles will be Pittsburgh at Northwestern, Syracuse at Illinois. Georgia Tech plays at Notre Dame.
