The ground-eating Ohioans converted four' fumbles into touchdowns and intercepted five Hoosier passes to squelch all Indiana's scoring attempts. The score was the largest turned in by a Woody Hayes coached team in his seven years here. And it was reminiscent of the "shut the gates That was -in 1953, when a Boilermaker team that hadn't won a game, stopped a 28-game Spartan winning streak with a 6-0 triumph. The situation was the same going into this one. Michigan State had-won it s first three starts and Purdue had lost its first three. After a scoreless first quarter during which the Big Tan rivals took turns stalling and punting, State showed some of the -spark that made it the No. 1-team .in the-nation. ".

The Hoosiers completed 9 of 21 passes for 122 yards, and Ohio connoted on 8 of 16 for 66 yards. That gave the Bucks a total gain advantage of 458 to-W6; It was Indiana's fourth straight defeat and the Hoosiers have been outscored 183 to 7.
