If 2S THE MINNEAPOLIS TRIBUNE Sun., Oct. 1, 1967 mbs Wisconsin 4 Arizona State r r Q Loss Spoils New Coach's Home Debut By DWAYNE NETLAND - Minneapolis Tribune Staff Writer " MADISON, Wis. John Coatta's first home game as Wisconsin football coach disintegrated into a 42-16 loss to an Arizona State team obviously pointing toward national recognition Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. This was the first expos ure to Big Ten competition for Arizona State, and it responded by h a n d i n g Wisconsin its worst home opening loss in history. The .result was of some , significance for Minnesota, because the Gophers will face the same Arizona State sophomores who played yesterday in a game at Tempe, two years from , now. Wisconsin was a badly outmanned team in every respect, and if the final . - margin was something of a disappointing surprise for Coatta, the caliber of Arizona State's personnel was not. Gene Felker, a Wiscon- sin ' assistant coach, had served on the Arizona State . staff for six years before coming to Madison. He - had warned Coatta to expect a team of bristling quickness, composed of athletes recruited from one corner of the nation to the other, the nucleus of them from Pennsylvania. ; " "I knew we'd have our hands full," Coatta said afterward, "but I didn't ex- pect them to score this - many points." . That was really what hurt the 49,327 spectators . the most. Everybody in the stadium knew the Badgers would have trouble moving the ball, but they expected a good deal more from the Wisconsin defensive unit. Arizona State rolled up -558 total net yards, 371 on the ground and 187 by ;- passing. Max Anderson, a 170-: pound fullback, contributed 220 yards in 21 rushes .. lor a 10.5 average. ' Anderson, fortunately for Minnesota's outlook, is a senior and will be long gone by 1969. But sophomore J. D. Hill is a man . .the Gophers should keep in mind. He caught two touchdown passes and to-staled 81 yards on receptions. - The only real threat Wis- consin, could offer was the - passing combination of quarterback John Ryan to flankerTom McCauley. I; Ryan played well in his I first - start of the season, completing 18 of 35 passes for! 195 yards and rushing on scrambled plays for ' 45 additional yards. "Ryan did a good job," Coatta observed, "and so .did McCauley. But the truth is that we were really not adequate in enough departments to challenge this team." r The rout began yester- day when Arizona State defensive tackle Bob Johnson recovered a Wisconsin fumble on the Badger 22. On the next play, Hill took a touchdown pass all alone I in the end zone from quar-; terback Ed Roseborough. Wisconsin countered with a 39-yard field goal by Tom Schinke early in "the second period, but the visitors established complete superiority by driving 80 yards for a touchdown to go ahead 14-3. An exchange of fumbles gave Arizona State possession on the Wisconsin 34 late in the third period. Four plays later Rosebor-,, ough passed to the elusive Hill for a touchdown from ;20 yards out, and a fifth -straight conversion by Bob T Rokita made it 35-9. Anderson ran 75 yards bn a trap play tor Arizona State's final touchdown, a - score the Badgers matched by; moving 48 yards later in; the fourth period with Ryan diving over from the .one, ; - Wisconsin is now 0-2. .The Badgers play at Michigan State next Saturday.

Catching Missouri Wins Clash of Cats at Evanston EVANSTON, 111. - un Quarterback Gary Kembrink was a one-man gang and Missouri's defense did a smothering job to lead the Tigers to a 13-6 football victory over Northwestern's stubborn Wildcats Saturday. Northwestern, a stunning 12-7 victor over Miami of Florida, was unable to contain Kembrink in a 71-yard Missouri touchdown drive in the first quarter. The Tigers iced the game with 37- and 35-yard 'field goals by Jay Wallace. KEMBRINK, WHO ran and passed for 233 yards, sparked Missouri's long scoring drive by passing three times for 54 yards end scooting 13 on a keeper to set up a one-yard III ini Brighten H ome Opener, Stop CHAMPAIGN, 111. (UPI) Illinois, trying to recover from a "slush fund"scandal under a new coach, turned its home opener against Pittsburgh into a 34-6 runaway Saturday. Illinois took off with a score in the first six minutes of the game on a 1-yard Dlunee bv auarterback Bob Naponic and was never in danger after that. Pittsburgh never penetrated the Illinois 9-yard line until wingback Joe McCain made a diving touchdown pass reception with less than two minutes to play. H IT WAS A heartening homecoming for the Ulini, who lost key players and their coach, Pete Elliott, last year because of charges that athletes had accepted under-t h e-t a b 1 e gratuities from alumni. Jim Valek, the new coach, saw his forces lose their opener at Florida last week. Naponic made his one-yard slam into the Pittsburgh line after he pitched passes to halfback Billy Huston good for 19 and 11 yards. The second period went scoreless with Pittsburgh trying to get on the scoreboard with Panther quarterback Frank Gustine hitting Bob Longo for 65 yards in four pass Dlavs. It was the Panthers' best drive of game, but it died on the the Illi- nois 9. ILLINOIS picked up its second touchdown in the third quarter on a six-yard pass from Naponic to John Wright. Ron Bess intercepted on the Pittsburgh 39 to set up Rich Johnson's 26-yard run, putting Illinois in command, 20-0. Illinois made it 27-0 in the fourth quarter with a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown by junior Dave Jackson. The final Illini score was tallied by sophomore quarterback Bob Bess, Ron's brother, with an eight-yard run. j short pass from quarterback Frank Patrick, Nebraska's Dick Davis (45) scoring plunge by fullback Barry Lischner. The key play in the Tiger march was Kembrink's 28-yard toss to halfback Henry Brown on Northwestern's one-yard line. Northwestern's touchdown also came in the first period after Dennis Coyne blocked Tiger Steve Kenmore's punt on the Missouri 17. Two plays later Bill Melzer hit Chico Kurzawski with a 17-yard touchdown pass. That was the first touchdown scored against Missouri which opened last week with a 21-0 victory over Southern Methodist. ALTHOUGH the Wildcats came out with a surprising Pitt 34-6 McCann's fingertip catch of a pass by second string quarterback Jeff Barr gave Pitt its only score.

(UPI) Unbeaten Virginia Tech, relying on defense and ball-control offense run by Al Kincaid, survived a shaky start to hand fired-up Kansas State a 15-3 setback Saturday. Sophomore Mike Widger iced the Goblers' third victory when he ' intercepted a frantic Wildcat pass late in the game and streaked eight yards for the final touchdown. VPI spotted the Wildcats, a 17-7 upset winner over Colorado State last week, a 3-0 lead in the first quarter on' Mike Bruhin's 34-yard field goal before catching fire in the second quarter.

Arizona, beaten soundly in its opener two weeks ago by Wyoming, spotted the Big Ten Buckeyes a first period touchdown and seemed to catch fire when 6-foot-3, 195-pound Lee came into the game to lead an 82-yard scoring drive. The loss was Ohio State's third opening day setback in coach Woody Hayes' 17-year career at OSU. After a strong first quarter, the Buckeyes seemed to run out of , gas and never seriously threatened in the second half. With workhorse Wayne Edmonds leading the way, Arizona tied the game with 3:40 left in the first half on an 82-yard march in 14 plays. Edmonds capped the drive with a one-yard plunge for the score, and Ken Sarnoski's kick made it 7-7. A poor kick on the part of Ohio State set up the winning touchdown, and the Wildcats from Tucson needed only five plays to go 37 yards for the game's final score. Lee went the final nine yards untouched for a 14-7 margin with 10:59 remaining in the third quarter. The first Arizona touchdown was set up on Lee's 23-yard pass up the middle to halfback Roger Brautigan, who was downed on the Buckeye one. Edmonds, a sophomore transfer from Naugatuck, Conn., smashed over from the one. Ohio Slot 7 O 0 07 Ariiona 0 7 7 014 Scoring: OS Ehrsam 7 pass from Brungard (Cairns kid1.

The . try for point was missed. Notre Dame came back quickly.' Hanratty ran' a sweep of right end for 24 yards to Purdue's one, then dived over for the touchdown. Dewey Poskon's try for point was good and Notre Dame led, 7-6, and so the first half ended. In the third period, Purdue had a fourth down and seven on Notre Dame's 36. Phipps slipped and nearly fell while rolling out, but recovered and found Bob Hurst wide open behind Notre Dame's left c ornerback. Hurst went 35 yards to the one and Williams dived over. Purdue chose to try for two points and Phipps hit Jim Bierne in the end zone for a 14-7 lead. The Irish retaliated on a 94-yard march. Hanratty hit fullback Ron Duch ney for 10 yards to the six, then Hanratty faked a handoff and slid over left tackle and it was 14-14 at the end of three quarters. Dramatic incidents piled one on another in the fourth quarter. Leroy Keyes caught a pass from Phipps on the two-yard line and finished the 10-yard gain for Purdue's 21-14 lead, but eight plays later George Kunz had a Notre Dame touchdown on a 27-yard pass from Hanratty. It was 21-21. Purdue met hard thrust with hard thrust. Jim Kirkpatrick brought the kickoff back to his 36-yard line. When rushed on a second-down pass, Phipps ran nine yards and Williams hit left tackle for 10. Purdue gained more on this play when Notre Dame received a face-mask pep-alty and it was first down on Notre Dame's 31. Williams lost a yard but, on third down and 11, Phipps found Bob Baltzell wide open down the left side on a crossover pattern, and Baltzell drove through heavy traffic near the goal-line for the winning touchdown. The amazing passing statistics: Hanratty tried 63, completed 29 for 366 yards and had four intercepted. Phipps tried 34, completed 14 for 238 yards and had no interceptions. Coach Ara Parseghian's plan seemed to be to surprise Purdue with Hanratty as a ball carrier and to use tight end Kunz as a prime receiver. The Irish lined up with both wide receivers on one side.. They sent Hanratty on sweeps to that side. The receivers curled back with beautifully -timed blocks and made this the only , effective running play Notre Dame had. Hanratty broke Notre Dame records for number of passes thrown and number completed, most rushes and passes by one player : (75) and most yards total offense 420. Keyes at times went into the defensive backfield to keep an eye on Jim Seymour. Seymour, however, caught eight passes for 114 yards. "It was a helluva football game, I'll say that," Parseghian sighed with dismay after the game. He then posed the question, "How can you gain 485. yards and get beat" Parseghian answered his own question by saying Purdue's four interceptions and two interference calls against the Irish in the second period helped the Boilermakers neutralize Notre Dame's devastating advances. Parseghian said Phipps "threw exceptionally well and did a great job for a sophomore. He ran well and made many good key third-down calls." Loss of 280-pound end Kevin Hardy on the second play of the contest with an ankle injury, plus injuries which 'forced four other Notre Dame defensive players to leave the game, were called a key factor in the loss by Parseghian. "When those fellows, particularly Hardy so early in the game, got hurt, it provided us with a problem on defense," Ara explained. 'T can't fault our offense, though there were several passes which were dropped which could have made the outcome different."

(UPI) Defensive halfback Dave Kornowa booted a 24- yard fourth-period field goal to give Indiana an 18-15 victory over intersectional rival Kansas Saturday. , The triumph marked the first time in three years that the Hoosiers have won two games in a row. Indiana spotted Kansas of the Big Eight a touchdown and conversion in the first period only to tie the score at the half at 8-8. They swapped touchdowns in the third period and Kornowa's first field goal of the season early in the final stanza was the difference. THE JAYHAWKS, losing their second game in as many starts, rallied in the final minutes and almost snatched the victory. But a Bobby Douglass pass was deflected by Kornowa and picked off by Mike Baughman, another defender, on the Indiana 20. With just 32 seconds left, Dave Aikens missed a field goal from the 27 that would have deadlocked the final score. Sophomore flanker, Jade Butcher grabbed two touchdown passes for the Hoosiers while Douglass scored Kansas' two touchdowns. Sophomore quarterback Harry Gonso, who starred in the opener against Kentucky, completed 10 of 23 passes for 155 yards and one touchdown for the Hoosiers, while halfback John Isenbarger, another sophomore, made good his only throw in the second period, a 28 - yard toss to Butcher for a touchdown.

(UPI) A spectacular 77-yard pass-run play with only two minutes left to play and Ron Miller's all important extra point enabled California Saturday to battle back for a 10-9 victory over favored Michigan. Until Randy Humphries, a reserve soph quarterback, unloaded his aerial to John McGaffie Michigan seemed en route to a 9-3 victory on the strength of a one yard touchdown smash by Ron Johnson and Mike Hankwitz 30-yard field goal. Michigan almost pulled it out on the first play from scrimmage following Humphries' winning pitch, when quarterback Dick Vidmer teamed with end Jim Berlint on a 73-yard TD play, only to have it called back on a backfield in motion penalty. Vidmer tried again on the following play, but this time California linebacker J i m Fetherston picked it off and the Wolverines, seven point favorites, were finished. Beside its winning score, California got a first period 44-yard field goal from Miller. The victory was the Golden Bears' second in t h r e e games. The loss was Michigan's first, following a 10-7 victory over Duke. Miller booted his field goal the second time Cal got the ball and then Michigan move in front late in the second quarter when Johnson capped a 33-yard, five play drive with his smash over the middle. Michigan held on to that 6-3 edge until Hankwitz booted his field goal with 614 left in the game. Michigan 0 6 0 3 9 California 3 0 0 710 :Cal FG Miller 44. Mich Johnson 1 run (kick failedl.
