And that unit's pass rush has resulted in seven interceptions, more than 15 pass deflections More CSC Stories On Page 32 and only 371 passing yards for Bear opponents (an average of 123.3 yards per game). At the beginning of the season, defensive line coach Vince Zimmer noted that his unit was young and would require some experience in order to improve much. By last weekend, that improvement began to show. The Bears won, 58-0, over Colorado Mines on a snow-covered field. The defensive line held Mines to minus 44 rushing yards. A strong pass allowed Mines only ,wo completions in 18 attempts and forced three interceptions! Mines had only 24 yards passing and minus 20 total offense yards. The Bears yielded .49 fards on the ground to Kansas State Teachers College in their iirst game, more than it has ;iven up in any other game to kte. In that same game, which CSC won, 33-30, the Bears gave up 232 passing yards to a team which is averaging 325-air yards per game. A week later the Bears show- id great improvemnt in pass defense as Ft. Hays gained only 115 air yards. In the 53-6 CSC romp, Ft. Hays completed only six of 15 passes, thanks in large art to a strong pass rush. "The Vrecking Crew" gave up only 7 ground yards in that game. CSC head coach Bob Blasi fensive success to Zimmer. "He has done a tremendous job,' Blasi said. He has emphasized quickness, especially in the hands and feet, and a pressure type of defense on every play' The stiffest 'test for "The Wrecking Crew" comes Saturday when the Bears face unbeaten Boise State College in Idaho.
