OHIO - There; were many little surprises' I Ulllll l IIU Willi tfimitinj ft Trn football game in which un-dc leatcd Ohio State whipped now nnee-boaten Michigan. 20-9. for the league title and Rose Bowl rights, i Rex Korn, the red-haired quarterback magician who hadj been operating on low octane1 much of the season, flashed his old charisma. Both tense teams made too many errors. A stadium record crowd of 87.3.11 attended. None of those things was the most startling in a summit clash of national powers. Ohio State went into the game as a five-point favorite and ranked No. 5. Michigan was No. 4. Ohio State officially was l voted into the Rose Bowl Sat-! urday night. ! John Dewey, assistant to Com-niTssinnor Bill Reed, made the announcement after polling conference athletic directors. "A majority of votes is in and Ohio State has been selected and has accepted the bowl bid," said Dewey. "So far all the votes have been for Ohio State." The strength of Coach Bo Schembcchler's dandy team, which had upset the Ruckeyes a year ago en route to an 11-!game league victory streak, was a rushing attack that had averaged 315 yards against Big I Ten foes. "We told our kids there was only one way to do it: Line up nose to nose, toes to toes and j fight it out. The best man would win. That's the way it i was. Nothing fancy," sighed Buckeye Defensive Coach Uuij McCiillnugh. Season Records MICMIOAN 20 Artoil . ... I Washinolnn ., 14 Ira. A&M . ?9 Purflu 34 St ...

The 3-3-1 Big Ten mark enabled the Hawks In bag their highest conference finish since the 1950 team tied for the title. "I'm proud of this team," Nagel said. "They're a bunch of thoroughbreds. "They kept coming back and there wasn't a single quitter on the squad. I'm very glad to be associated with them." Roy Bash completed his first eight passes and wound up hitting on 11 of 13 for 159 yards and one touchdown in his final game as a Hawkeye.

OKLA.-lowa 3 State couldn't choke off the slam-bang running of Oklahoma State tailback Bobby Cole Saturday and saw its hopes for a winning season end as a result. After a tremendous start, launched by Jeff Allen's 76-yard fo)1 C3 fin LnJ IMl Jl MHEP)W return of the opening kickoff, the Cyclones finally were done in by the Cowboy ground attack. Cole slammed for 237 yards in 49 carries as Iowa Stale lost its sixth Big Eight Conference game against one victory, 36-27. It was really closer than that, Iowa State yielding the final touchdown with just four seconds left after giving up the ball on its own nine-yard stripe on a 70-degree day before 13,500 fans. After it was over and Cole had racked up more yards rushing in a single game than any Big Eight back this year, the 190-pound junior from Gates-ville, Tex., said: Good Blocking "Actually, 1 wasn't tired at all. I was just hoping they'd give me the ball more. We had good blocking from our line. All I had to do was hold the ball and ; run." Season Records IOWA STATE New Mexico Colo.

State dressing room, Keith Schroeder, middle linebacker who calls defensive signals, said that he didn't think the line was doing as well as it could against Cole. "I don't know whether we weren't pursuing as well as be fore or what, but Ihey bad a real scrappy club and their backs did a lot on their own," Schroeder said. "Cole was getting 6-7 yards in the middle of our line. I know I hit him good one time and he spun off me and kept going. "11 seemed like no matter what defense we were in they hit the weak area. They won the guessing game and executed real well, too." 27-23 Ix-ad Iowa State's hopes were bright before they faded out in the fourth quarter as the Cowboys punched across two touch downs to erase a 27-23 Cyclone lead. Allen's exciting run was only the start and it looked for a while as if the Cowboys were in for a mismatch. It look just Iwo plays after Allen raced the kickoff back to the Cowboy 2.1 for the Cyclones to gel on the board.
