   Holland Evening Sentinel, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1963, Holland, Michigan                               FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1963 THE HOLLAND, MICHIGAN, EVENING SENTINEL PAGE THIRTEEN MSU and Illinois Ready for Clash EAST LANSING (UPD-The Big Ten football championship and a Rose Bowl opportunity rides on a single game Satur- day, Illinois at Michigan State. But there will be conference interest, top, in traditional games winding up the season for other teams. Michigan State, fifth ranked nationally, was a six point choice to defeat the Illini, rated eighth, and grab its first undis- puted Big Ten title and its third trip to the Bowl. Each has a 6-1-1 record. The Illini. one of the nation's toughest defensive teams, were rated capable of victory for their third bowl berth and sev- enth big Ten crown. Both Michigan State's Duffy Daugherty and Illinois' Pete Elliott expect a low scoring game since both teams feature defense. Michigan State ranks as the fourth best defensive team in the nation and the best in rushing defense, while Illinois with a standout pass defense as well, was 10th nationally in rush- ing defense. The game could wind up as a one victory since Illinois must play to win in order to grab the crown and the bowl. Michigan State can take both prizes with a win or tie. Thus the Illini, regardless of time left to play or the score, may be obliged to go for two point conversions. Illinois has tried three two-point conversions in Big Ten competition this year and has succeeded on two. The Spartans were rated as having a better chance to break the game open with speedster halfback Sherman Lewis, who weighs only 152 pounds Lewis has turned in five runs of more than 80 yards this year, either from scrimmage, with a pass or on a punt return, and rates as one of the league's top sprinters Illinois has no breakaway back of Lewis' speed, but sophomore Sam Price, a 200 pounder, has been regarded all season as a potential long gainer. Both have great fullback power, Michigan State in Roger Lopes and Illi- nois in sophomore Joe Grabow- ski The two teams have met six times previously, each team winning three games, and neither of the teams ever has won a road game. Last year Illinois won a 7-6 decision at Champaign In other games Indiana will try for its second straight win over Purdue, a slight favorite, to retain the Old Oaken Bucket: Wisconsin was a four point favorite to down Minnesota.

Mens League W L Favor Bears By 4 Points Over Steelers By United Press International The Chicago Bears and the New York Giants risk their pre- carious division leads Sunday against a pair of tough clubs that could force both National Football League races into ties. The Bears, coming off a big win over the Green Bay Pack- ers, travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers The Giants (8-2) are at home against the St. Louis Cardinals (7-3) in a j game that could throw the East- ern Division race into a three- team deadlock. A victory by the Cards at Yankee Stadium, coupled with a win by the Cleveland Browns at home over the Dallas Cow- boys, would produce a tie among New York, St. Louis and Cleveland. Coach George Halas of the Bears expressed his respcet for the Steelers last Sunday when he remarked immediately after the Green Bay victory that "I'd j rather play any team in the i league next week than Pitts-1 burgh." I The Bears, with a 9-1 record, lead Green Bay by one game. The Packers face a patsy in their game at Milwaukee against the San Francisco For- j ty Niners. I After Sunday, the Bears playj home games against the Minne-j sota Vikings, Forty Niners and j Detroit Lions all clubs with j losing records The Packers! play their last three games on the road, at Detroit, Los Ange- j les and San Francisco. In Sunday's three games in- volving non-contenders, the Los Angeles Rams (3-7) are at home against the Baltimore Colts (5-j the Philadelphia Eagles (2-1 7-1) entertain the Washington j Redskins and the Vikings (3-7) are home against the Lions Oddsrnakers favor Chicago by 4 points over Pittsburgh, New York by 9 over St. Louis, Cleveland by over Dallas; i Green Bay by 21 over San Francisco. Baltimore by 4 over i Los Angeles: Philadelphia by 4 i over Washington, while Minne- j sota and Detroit are rated even. j As a side attraction to the two closely contested division races. Jimmy Brown of Cleve- land and Y. A. Tittle of the Gi- ants face an opportunity to set significal NFL records Sunday. Brown, with rushing yards, needs to gain only 81 more against the Cowboys to break his own single-season rec- ord of set in 1958. And Tittle can surpass Bobby Layne's lifetime touchdown-pas- sing record of 196 by completing four scoring tosses against the Cardinals. Tittle has thrown 27 this season, leaving him six short of the record of 33 he set in 1962. Tall Team Plays In Preliminary Maria's Pizza of Grand Rap- ids will play the preliminary game at 7 p.m. Saturday a- gainst Zeeland Lumber in the Civic Center prior to the Mid- west Basketball League game between the Holland Oilers and Indianapolis at p.m. Coached by Alex Laggis, the Grand Rapids team boasts 6'6" ex-Aquinas player Ralph Cole- man and 6'5" "Dave Washington, former Southern California player who is playing football for the Grand Rapids Blazers.

The Lions coaxed Cassady out of retirement to fill a vacancy in the injury-riddled defensive backfield this week. However, the last four games this year are important to Cassady in more than one way. He needs only three more games to qualify for the NFL pension play which pays a month at age 65. Cassady has accepted a S10.800-a-year post with the Ohio youth commission and was set to start work Dec. 1 but he has delayed that to Dec. 16, after the Lions' last game. Bobich Vows He Will Play Despite Break EAST LANSING (UPI) Michigan State, where the word Spartan has come to mean more than a nickname to football players, counted on Lou Bobich, despite a broken finger, being ready for action in Saturday's Big Ten title showdown with Illinois. At the start of the week guard Mike Currie and center Don Ross were expected to be side- lined by injuries suffered against Notre Dame. But first Currie made a surprising comeback with a sore knee and then Ross announced he too would be ready to play despite an injured ankle. Now Bobich has made the and Dr. James Feu- rig, who is rapidly becoming a believer in this Spartan "I can if I will" philosophy, wouldn't deny today that Bobich will at least be ready for limited duty Saturday. Feurig said Bobich, a junior who has maintained a 40.8 yard punting average this season, was specifically rigged with a pliable splint following an operation last night "so he'd be able to play. "He'll play-there isn't any question about it and he'll play within the rules of the Feurig said. Bobich suffered a compound fracture of his left index finger Thursday when it was jammed while he was working out in practice at his defensive half- back spot. The bone pierced the skin of the finger and the operation was needed to get the digit back in- to joint. At first examination Feurig said it appeared Bobich's acti- vities would be limited to kick- offs and point-after-touchdown kicks. "Punts are not likely because we'll have to put the finger in a splint device which will make it the size of a piece of bologna." Later, however, Feurig held out hope that Bobich would be able to see near regular action. date. 32 30 27 25 16 18 21 23 17 25 31 Also Rans Sandbaggers Gutterballs Splinters Four Horsemen Pros Cons Eagles Tired four High Coppersmith. 205 High Harter, 575.
