MADISON, Wis. (AP) -Billy Marek rushed 43 times for 304 yards and five touchdowns, all single game school records, to lead Wisconsin to a 40-14 Big Ten college football victory over fumbling Minnesota Saturday
Marek finished the season with 1,215 yards, just short of Rufus “Road Runner” Ferguson’s Badger record 1,222 set in 1971. The 5-foot-8, 188 pound junior tailback’s 19 touchdowns and 114 points for the year, also school records,
propelled the Badgers to a 7-4 finish, best since 1962 when they won the Big Ten title
Marek s touchdowns, on mas of I, 3, 32. 6 and 2 yards, gave him 13 touchdowns in his last three games, during
which he amassed 740 yards rushing His three successive games of 200 or more yards each tied the national record set last year by Heiseman Trophy winner John Capeletti of Penn State, who had consecutive games of 220, 204 and 202 yards. Marek’s 304 yards erased his personal school
mark of 2% set against North- it it it
western last week. He had ^
gained 206 against Iowa two Ijhjft Xf^tg —

Ohio State coach Woody Hayes held his head in apparent relief as he was escorted from the field following his team s 12-10 win over Michigan Saturday.
Marek’s achievements obscured a Big Ten tying UM) yard touchdown return of the opening kickoff by Minnesota’s Rick Upchurch. However, the Gophers contributed to the rout by losing the ball on fumbles at the Wisconsin 8, 3 and 15 yard lines.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.

fled the way our kids came back We did not win the game on breaks We deserved to win.”
Although they did not score, Archie Griffin and Cornelius Greene continued their recordbreaking offensive exploits for Ohio State.
Griffin, with 111 yards, posted his 22nd straight regu-lar-season game of more than IM and broke his own Big Ten single-season rushing record The junior from Columbus now has 1,820 yards for the season compared with his former record of 1,577 a year ago.
Greene passed and ran for 101 yards, becoming the Buckeyes’ greatest total-offense producer for one season His 1,636 yards wiped out the mark of 1,585 yards set by Rex Kern in 1969
Schembechler went to the defense of Gantry, saying, “Don’t blame it on the kicker Don’t hold him responsible He has kicked more extra points and field goals than any Michigan player in history."
Both coaches barred writers from talking to their players, but Klaban was cornered coming out of the dressing room and ushered into a room for powt-game interviews. •
“I felt we should have had the game out of reach before the fourth quarter." Schembechler said “We played poorly just before the half and let them get control of the game."
It was a frustrating loss for the Wolverines, who have posted a 30-2-1 record in the last three seasons but haven't been permitted to play in a bowl under the current Rose Bowl pact
The Michigan coach admitted, "You’re darned nght I’m frustrated We should have won We were ready to win and we didn t do it."

EAST LANSING, Mich - Maybe athletic directors don’t always appreciate all the help they get from newsmen
Iowa’s Bump Elliott had no more than climbed aboard one of the buses taking the Iowa party to the airport after Saturday’s game when a newsman asked what team he was going to vote for as the Big Ten s Rose Bowl representative.
"I’m gel Bg ta stay away from you gays, ’ Ramp grinned, bit jailed bs Ib the bark half ti the bas Bump skillfally darked answering the first question Whee asked lf he had ta vale far ane «f the two teams that tied far the title, he replied, "la theary, at least, we raa tate far aay Big Tea team."
So we decided to guide him We asked the newsmen in the back of the bus which team they favored for the Rose Bowl Ohio State got five votes, Michigan two and Michigan State two.
We don't mind admitting our hand went for Ohio State. We just happen to think that when two teams tie for the title, the choice should be the one that triumphed in the game in which they met.
Sara. we kaaw there will be same wha say Ohia State bad a kame-Held advantage, maybe warth a taarhdawa. And ethers will cast a sentimental sate far Mirhigaa. thinking Ba Schembechler's team get ripped aff last year when the teams tied.
But if you use the most perfect measuring stick available under admittedly imperfect rules, the choice has to be Ohio State. And it should make no difference whether you like Woody Hayes or not. Or Bo Schembechler. Or Denny Stolz
Pass the Hash
— We're sure Bump will cast his sate at today's Big Tea meeting la Chicago strictly aa the merits af the sitaatian Bump mast be tempted ta vate a Mirhigaa ticket. He is a Mirhigaa man — as a player, assistant reach, head reach and assistant athletic directer. And it is well known he has geed reasan ta dislike Weedy Hayes personally
Matter of fact, the reason for that dislike figured in a Detroit News story' earlier in the week Jerry Green, writing about the Big Ten reprimand for Woody, Schembechler and Illinois coach Boh Blackman, said he had learned Woody already was on probation.
“Hayes was reprimanded far critical comments abaat Bump Elliott . . . fallowing the departure af Frank Laaterbar as the Hawk-eyes’ football coach," Green wrote Hayes had blasted Bamp and other Iowa officials, saying the only reason Lanterbnr was fired was becasse he didn t win.
“That’s not true,” Bump said Saturday when “We asked about it “I never heard anything about Woody's being reprimanded in that situation, and I am sure I would have heard about It if the Big Ten took such action "
- Bamp wasn’t the only Big Ten athletic
director to button his lip about the Rose Bowl vote Michigan State's Burt Smith refused to discuss it Saturday. He drew a lot of heat from Michigan people a year ago when it became known he had voted for Ohio State. They figured he owed it to a home-state school to vote for Michigan And he’s a Michigan grad, too. We wouldn’t blame Burt one bit if he cast his vote for Michigan State today
— We saw Dicky Lewis, defensive mardi Bater at Iowa the previous three seasons ■■der Frank Lanterbnr. at the Iowa game. After it was aver Dicky was antside the Iowa dressing roam.
“It’s gotta be me - my fault," Ducky said “I show up and 60 points go up on the scoreboard." Ducky is checking beer in a warehouse in Toledo, still hopes to get hack into coaching.
— Almost everyone agreed the officials goofed and gave Michigan State a fifth down just before the half It enabled the Spartans to kick a field goal with three seconds left. However, it should be pointed out that if the officials had done their job correctly after each down that the Spartans easily could have booted the field goal on fourth down instead of fifth. The fourth-down play was an incomplete pass anyway.
"It was of no consequence," shrugged Iowa coach Bob Commlngs, miserably thinking about the 60-21 score. But other Iowans were nettled about such a ridiculous error. MSU’s own play-by-play said, “Appears to be a fifth-down play." after the field goal One Iowa representative asked the game’s timer, who mumbled something about a “dead-ball penalty," but there was no infraction, no flag and no penalty. Someone said a call was placed to the officials at halftime and their reply was a terse “there was no fifth down. Oh, yeah? Everyone’s play-by-play showed Lynn Heil sacking Charlie Baggett, followed by three straight passes Then the field goal. Incredible!
- Bill Halls af the Detroit News had the
hest line after Michigan State kicked a field goal on fifth dqwn. “Wayne Duke,” he cried, “where are you when we really need you?" Duke is the Big Ten commissioner who was in the MSU pressbox two weeks earlier when the Ohio State game wound up in such a controversy
