It will be the first time in Wolverine grid history that Coach Fielding H. Yost's team has not been the favorite in its opening game, Michigan, with the jworest material In history, lost its opening game to Ohio Wcsleyan by a 17 to 7 score and prospects of a victory oer Indiana are considered remote. Indiana's team is composed completely of veterans, except where Rome of last season's men wercSbeat- cn out of their positions by aspiring .sophomores. Captain Bennett is considering one of the best backfield men in the conference, while Randolph, at center. Is rated as good in the line as Bennett is in the backfield. Except for the fact that they face an almost Impossible schedule of alx Wg ten games the Hoosleis would be a championship favorite. In today's game they will have eery advantage, except the psychological. They have never yet scored a clvtory over the Wolverines, but today's contest seems likely to break this precedent. ; 71?* mini tin peteilwf for ,, with T ROPE OF lOWAr-Here ts Mayes McLnin. the big fullback at Iowa who formerly played with ths Haskell Indians and who Is the big cog in the Iowa offense this year.
