Turning back everything the home team offered, the lilue horde struck twice with deadly precision at the Ohio goal In the first half to record a 14 to 0 victory. Michigan was then content to go on the defensive. It withstood five Ohio scoring threats, each time bracing with the ball within Its 25-yard line. Michigan Outgalned. It was Newman and his accurate aerial heaves tnat spelled defeat for the Buckeyes. From scrimmage Ohio State gained 144 yards to Michigan's 46.

United Preii Staff CorreiDondent. Lafayette, Ind., Oct. 15. (UP) Purdue cleared another obstacle in its drive to the Big Ten gridiron championship Saturday by defeating Wisconsin by the narrowest possible margin, 7-6. Both teams scored a touchdown In the second period, hut Paul Pardonner. chunky little Frenchman from Middletown. Conn., dropklcked the extra point which gave Purdue Its second straight Big Ten victory and Wisconsin Its first defeat of the season. Pardonner's kick was partlv blocked by a redsweatered Wisconsin lineman, who broke through ' ,the Purdue's defense, and came charging In at the Diminutive Boilermaker qunrterhnck ss he wss poised to kick. The Wisconsin player hit the ball with his upraised 'arm, snn it floated over the cross-bar by Inches. Radger Kick Just Misses. After Wisconsin scored Its touchdown with two minutes left to play In the first half, Jos Linfor. Badger's left half back attempted to plaoeklck the extra point necessary to tie the score. He kicked the hall high enough but a trifle too wide. It was close and 'Llnfor stood stone still for a moment, watching it go awry. A '. homecoming crowd of 21,000 nearly packed Purdue's Intimate little stadium In the Indiana hills to see a thrilling offensive battle: Although only two touchdowns were made, the battle raged up and down the gridiron from . one end to the other with both teams threatening to score again ' but always lacking the final punch. Close games between Purdue and Wisconsin on homecoming at Lafay. ette are getting to be an old story. In four games here between them since 1926, Purdue has scored Just two more points than Wisconsin. They plnved a 0-0 tie In 192S. and a 19-19 deadlock In 1928. In 1930 Purdue won by 7-6.

Showing a decided reversal of th form they exhibited against Purdue'a powerful and versatile aggregation a week ago, the Gophers were hard pressed to eke out a 7 to 6 victory over a hard fighting and well coach ed Nebraska team at Memorial sta dlum Saturday afternoon. Some 18,000 spectators were keen ly disappointed in the first quarter in which the Gophers were badly outplayed and trailed their Nebraska . rivals, 6 to 0, but the Maroon and Gold adherents took heart as Ber- nie Bierman's men got their legs under them late in the second quarter in which they put over a touchdown and kicked goal to assume tha lead which they maintained to th nniBh. Narrowly Miss Two Touchdowns. The Gophers came dangerously close to registering two more touch downs in the second half, a beautifully thrown pass by Francis Lund barely escaping from Walter Hasa in the third quarter when the Minnesota captain was on Nebraska's 18-yard line and had clear field for a touchdown run, the Gophers again being thwarted on Nebraska's 10-yard line late in the fourth quarter when Jack Manders intercepted a forward pass on the cornhuskers' 30-yard lina and carried it to their 10-yard strip Detore being brought down. The Ne- braskans braced magnificently at this point and took the ball on downs. me game enamg one minute later. The Minnesota line was badly out. charged in the first half, the Ne- J t.1 if 1- i uiaann lumaiua i;iUBlllHg lUTUUgn at will and breaking up the Gopher plays In their inception. Bernie Bier-man evidently gave his men an Impressive talk between halves becausa the Minnesota forwards outplayed their rivals in the third and fourth quarters by such a clear margin that the Cornhuskers were unable to make a first down during the last 30 min utes of play. It was quite apparent In the sec ond half that the Cornhuskers shot their bolt in the first and second quarters for they lacked the dash and effectiveness which marked their play during the first 30 minutes of the struggle. It also was apparent that Bierman corrected the faults of his linemen during the rest period as they showed marked improvement in their playing, especially on the defensive in the third and fourth quarters. Both Sides Score Via Air Route. Both teams bping unable to gain . consistently with their running plays, took to i air to score their touchdowns. The Cornhuskers completed two splendid passes early in the first quarter which saw Bernl Masterson nab a pass from Georga Sauer behind Minnesota's goal line, while the Gophers thrilled their followers by executing a forward-lateral to tie the score and then take tha lead by kicking the point of conversion late In the second quarter. On Minnesota's scoring play. Francis Lund tossed a short pass over the line of scrimmage to Robinson who went high into the air for a leaping catch, Robby then heaving a lateral to Jack Manders who scooped up the bounding ball and raced 20 yarda for a touchdown. The Cornhuskers put over their touchdown play before the gam was five minutes old. The- Nebras-kans won the toss and elected to defend the west goal with a stiff wind blowing at their backs. Wells kick ed off to Boswell on Nebraska's six. yard line, the speedy back returning the ball 24 yards to his own 30-yard line. The Huskers were offside, how. ever, and Wells again kicked off, the ball again going to Boswell who fumbled but recovered on his own 20-yard line and then ran the ball back 10 yards only to fumble onca more when tackled on his own 30 yard line where Bruhn recovered for Minnesota. Lund, on the first play, slashed off left tackle for eight yards. Lund fumbled when tackled hut recovered the ball on the 23-yard line.
