Second Win In Loop By Iowa Hawks By L. E. SKELLEY IOWA CITY, (AP) -- Hard-hitting- Iowa, aided by clever deception, smashed down Wisconsin 13-7 Saturday in a wild, bruising Big Ten football game that had a near record crowd of 53,273 limp at the finish. Iowa beat back a late challenge by the aggressive Badgers who had gone into the fourth period trailing 13-0 after Iowa's stout defense had turned back three Wisconsin threats. Wisconsin, making its conference debut, finally scored mid- Sports News COUNCIL Neb k way in the final period on a 23- THE STATISTICS W Kirst downs 13 12 RushinK vardafre 121* 139 Passinst yardafte 10t 54 Passes S-15 5-11 Passes intercepted by ...._ 2 _ 2 Punts 5-33 5-35 Fumbles lost 0 1 Yards penalized 15 40 yard flat pass play, Don Carlson to Eugene Melvin. and got the successful conversion from Glenn Bestor. Push Badgers Back Minutes later Wisconsin went to the Iowa 37 when Carlson, a sophomore quarterback making his first appearance of the season, intercepted _ an Iowa pass. The ' a r o u s e d ~Hawkeyes, " however, pushed Wisconsin back to midfield. ' As the. end of the game neared. Wisconsin again was giving Iowa fits.' Halfback Bill Happel came to Iowa's rescue by intercepting a pass on the IT yard line on the final play of the day. Iowa, racking up its second Big Ten triumph and third straight victory, struck fast for its first touchdown with only one minute left in the first half. A five-minute electrical storrn had doused the stadium with rain just before Iowa took off from its 16 yard line. There had been no damage from the storm, but Iowa's lightning - like thrusts through the air cut through Wisconsin for a touchdown on eight plays. GiHiam's Key Block The last strike was a pass from .quarterback Ken Ploen from the 11 to halfback Mike Hagler on the five. End Frank Gilliam cleared 'but the only Badger in .front of Hagler who dashed over to score. VPiosn missed the conversion with only one second left in the half. L-_~;lowa boomed .into a--13-0 lead. as soon as the second half started. Wisconsin put two kickoffs out of bounds and Iowa took over in midfield. The Hawkeyes used seven plays to score, Ploen sneaking --ever from the-one after -a beautifully faked handoff to Fred Harris. Bob Prescott made the conversion and Iowa had finished its scoring for the sultry afternoon. Wisconsin could well have become discouraged after seeing Iowa's rugged defense crush two Badger second quarter challenges. Early in the second period, Pat fumble on the Iowa 33. Wisconsin banged to just inside the 10 but on fourth down and a yard to go. Bestor was gathered up by the j Iowa line for no gain. Shortly thereafter, John Bridgeman intercepted Randy Duncan's Pass and Wisconsin wa 5 in business on the Iowa 36. The Badgers, working desperately as rain pelted the field, moved, to the 18 but a fake field goal by Dick Simonson lost four yards and Iowa was in command and ready to take off on its first touchdown maneuver. Harris To Rescue Wisconsin, starting from its 32 late in the third period, swept to the Iowa 15 before Fred Harris eased Iowa fears by intercepting Carlson's pass on the 5 and returned to the' 26. Ploen. injured a week ago in Iowa's 14-13 victory over Oregon State, did an intelligent job of directing the- Iow a offense. He completed 5 of 10 passes, good for 94 yards. One was a sparkler in the midst of Iowa's first touchdown excursion. He passed from his 25 to Jim Gibbons on the 35 and the big end lateralled to Happel for an overall gain of 38 yards.

Iowa Deception Pleases Coaeh Winners Escape Minus Injuries IOWA CITY S -- Coach Forest Evashevski expressed pleasure at Iowa's 13-7 Big Ten victory over Wisconsin Saturday, but indicated there still was much room for improvement. In the jubilant Hawkeye dressing room, Evashevski commented: "Iowa still couldn't get a sustained drive going, but our deception was "much better today and I was pleased with that. Wisconsin had a good football team. They came down here with the idea of playing football and that's what they did." "Rock, Sock Game The Iowa mentor described the contest as a "rock-em, sock-em" ball game, and added: "Luckily Iowa didn't receive any injuries like it did last year up at Wisconsin." Coach Milton Bruhn of--Wiscin- sin praised Iowa's play, but had good words of encouragement for his own men. "Iowa had real good defense," Bruhn said. "But my team is getting better each week and I plan to substitute more from now on. Iowa is a stubborn team and should go a long way." Commenting on the two out-of- bound kickoffs which gave the ball to Iowa at midfield at" the start of the second half, Bruhn said' he had his best kicker on the field as he was not trying to "lay it. along the sideline." Asked if Iowa was better than the othsr teams the Badgers had met, Bruhn answered. "They don't have an Arnett." He was referring to.. Southern California's John Arnett, a breakaway speedster. ·-- --· -* · . ' · ' . Praise For Three Evashevski singled out fullback- Fred Harris, tackle Alex Karros and end Frank- Gilliam for good defensive play. \ Kenny Ploen, quarterback, said the Hawkeyes had a hard time in stopping the Badgers from goinr up the middle in the second half Halfback Bill Happel said Wisconsin's touchdown resulted when Wisconsin faked Iowa's defense to the right and then threw their offense to the left. "We're finally playing bette: ball together," fullback Fred Har ris said. "Both.the ends and SECTION 6 COUNCIL BLUFFS. IOWA.

DALLAS -P -- Oklahoma's twin football phantoms -- Tommy .McDonald and Clcndon Thomas- vied for the gloo' and won it almost equally Saturday as they scored three touchdowns apiece and ran Texas ragged for a 45-0 victory that brought the Sooners' winning steak to 33 straight. the modern college record and came within three of the all-time mark while the nation's No. 1 team was lashing Texas with its second worst feat in the 56-year history of this ancient intersectional game. McDonald Brilliant McDonald, who was burned up last week when he failed to score against Kansas State, was never more magnificent. He ran for 140 yards, he returned a kickoff for he caught two passes for 61, threw one pass for 27 and had one 47-yard run nullified by a penalty. Thomas was almost as spectacular as he raced for 123 yards in 13 carries. A crowd of 75.50-1 watched the Big Red plow a fighting but futile Longhorn team under with one of the most awesome running games Cotton Bowl ever saw. It was futile to Texas, so futile ·that one of the Longhorns--Robert E. Lee. a guard--took a poke at Dale Sherrod, Sooner reserve quarterback, as time was running out. They wrestled around without damage. Fifth In Serie* Back in 1908 Oklahoma beat -Texas 50-0 for the worst defeat of all time. Saturday's Oklahoma victory was the fifth straight over the Longhorns. It would have been higher but the Sooners committed nine fumbles and lost four, three of which halted drives. One touchdown--a 63-yard dash by Jay O'Neal, Sooner quarterback--was wiped out when it was found that the ball had been whistled dead. Oklahoma rolled up a massive 369 yards on the ground to a pitiful 74 for Texas and passed for 133 compared to 114 for the Longhorns. y;od:ns ; the- ball By ODELL HANSON LINCOLN, Neb., (AP)--A tremendous 35-yard field goal expertly booted by Sophomore Halfback Ren Groose carried Kansas State to a 10-7 upset over the favored Nebraska Cornhuskers Saturday in a Big Seven Conference football clash before 24,000 fans at Memorial Stadium here.

Three minutes later Kansas State was back in contention, covering 68 yards in six plays and scoring on Quarterback Keith Wilson's 11-yard off-tackle run. Kenny Mesmith's conversion kick tied it up at 7-7 and that's the way it remained until Grosse /broke up the game with his great kick. The K-State win was a virtual repeat of a 7-3 victory scored by Long Powers UCLA To Easy Victory LOS ANGELES JP -- Sophomore halfback Don Long shook UCLA out of an early lethargy and led the Bruins to a 2S-0 victory over the Wildcats on the same field | Washington- Slate College Satur- two years ago. That had been the last conference loss for the Huskers to any Big Seven rival except Oklahoma. Statistically Saturday's battle was a toss-up. In net yardage Nebraska held a slight 271-263 margin but trailed 17-14 in first downs. Outside of the first quarter a really serious threat and Kansas State penetrated to the JMe- day.
