Gophers Need Upset Win Over
Badgers For Rose Bowl Chance
Iowa State, Kansas State
Play For League Cellar
The two hard luck teams of the
Big Seven conference, Iowa State
and Kansas State, close out their
football seasons in the Wildcats'
Memorial Stadium at Manhattan
Saturday. Although the battle will
only decide which team "escapes
the cellar, the determination to

of Wisconsin eleven Saturday at
Madison before a sellout audience
of 51,200 could give the Univer
sity of Minnesota football team its
best Big 10 Conference season
since 1941 when the Gophers
came up with their last unde
feated national championship ag
gregation. A 4-1-1 mark would result
from a Minnesota win over the
powerful and highly-favored
Badgers. The best league mark
established by any Maroon and
Gold grid squad since 1941 is
the 4-2 record of the 1949 edi
tion. Rarely in the 62-year-old his
tory of this neighborly rivallry has
there been so much at stake. The
Badgers won their last Big 10 title
in 1912 just 40 years ago. They
have come close in recent years
but always "blew" a key game or
two. The surprising Gophers like

possible for them to bring home
the first Conference bunting since
A decision over Wisconsin
while Michigan and Purdue
were losing to Ohio State and
Indiana, respectively, would

title. If Purdue and Minnesota
both win while Michigan is los
ing, a title tie could result It
could even be a 8-way affair
if Michigan and Ohio State were
to tie while Minnesota and the
Boilermakers were winning.
While the "experts" are virtu
ally unanimous in saying that a
Gopher win is improbable, some
7,000 Minnesota fans think enough
of the chances to make the trek
to Madison. This is a post-war
nign in migrations in Big 10 tern
Through much of the time- since
Wes Tesler took over as Minne
sota's headman in football it has
been oft-repeated that "it all de
pends on how the defense per
forms," as the Gophers have gone
along from foe to foe.
In recent games the defensive
unit has performed commend
ably. Against Wisconsin this '
Saturday it will be the offense
that will be called on to step up
its tempo as its contribution to
ward a winning effort.
So far this season in losses to
Washington, California, and Mich-
igan; victories over Northwest
ern, Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska;
and a tie with Purdue the offense
has produced an average of 2
touchdowns per game. It got 4
Michigan, and two 'each in thei!l
other 6 games.
It is the general concensus
that it is asking too much of the
fast-improving Maroon and
Gold defenders to expect them
to hold the versatile, powerful,
and explosive Badger attack to
one or two touchdowns. Thus it
appears by concensus of those
"in the know" that AU America
Candidate Paul Giel and his
backfield cohorts will have to
make their best offensive effort
of the year if Minnesota is to
prevail in this climactic en
counter. The answer to this may be in
the making this week as Fesler
and his aides search for a right
halfback capable of delivering
against the rugged Wisconsin de
fense. ...
So far this season wingnaxas

With Mike Sullivan, wingback
starter against Nebraska, nursing
a badly bruised hip, the coaching
staff has turned to diminutive
Dale Quist, Northfield sophomore
left halfback reserve who has been
used only on kickoff plays this
fall. He will take the field against
the Badgers with only four days
of practice at the right halfback
post. Quist's play Saturday after
noon could well be a decisive fac
For the Wildcats of Kansas
State there is a chance to climb
out of the conference basement
for the first time since 1942
when K-State was fourth
ahead of Iowa State and Kansas.
And, Saturday also provides a
chance for Coach Bill Meek and
the Wildcats to score the first
K-State win over the Cyclones
since the 1942 Cats won 7-6.
Iowa State will attempt to pro
tect the record of their coach
Emmett (Abe) Stuber, who has
never dropped a game to Kansas
State since he took over head
coaching chores at Iowa State in
1947. The Cyclones also will be
trying to avoid the cellar, a spot
they have not occupied since they
shared it with Kansas in 1942 and
formidable foes. They have not
chosen the easy way.
In conference play alone, the
Cyclones have shown the better
defensive record and the Wildcat
boast of the better offense. Iowa
State has been able to score on
only one conference foe. Colorado,
as the Cyclones lost that one 12-21.'
Defensively, Iowa State has al

Sophomores hold the. key to
Kansas State basketball success
this fall.
There are 18 men on the Wild
cat varsity squad which will open
its season against Drake in the
Kansas State fieldhouse Decem
ber 6. Of that total 13 are soph
omores and five are lettermen.
Back to spearhead the Cats'
drive toward Big Seven and
national cage honors will be
all-American Dick Knostman,
the Wamego wonder boy who
last year drove home 390
points and grabbed 311 re
bounds in 24 games.
Also on deck to aid Knostman,
a six-foot, six-inch lad, will be
veterans Jesse Prisock, 6-5, and
Jack Carby, 6-7, at forwards;
clever Bob Rousey, 5-11, and
Gene Stauffer, 6-0, at guards.
That's an all-star cast.
Up from the freshman ranks
will be 13 of the tallest men in
K-State cage history. In fact,
this winter's Wildcat team will
be the talle$t ever coached by
Jack Gardner, K-State mentor.
Seven of the sophomores are
six feet, three Inches or better.
Here's how they line up:
Jerry Jung, former Hutchinson
star, 6-10. Gary Bercer. But
ler, Mo., 6-8; Roger Craft, 6-7,
Garden City: Walter Wolf. 6-5.
Norton; Jim Smith, 6-4, Brain
erd, Minn.; Nugent Adams, 6-4,
K.ansas city, iuo.; .Paul Fiener,
6-3, Greensburg.
Of the sophomore group, Smith
is the most game-wise. Fresh
men were permitted varsity com
petition in the Bib Seven last
season and the Brainerd flash
participated in 20 games. He will
make a strong bid for a starting
guard post along with sophomore
Marv (Peck) Mills, a quick-moving
six-footer from Tulsa.
Kansas State will play a 21
game schedule this season.
