Linebacker Marty Huff, 6-2
228, of the Wolverines drew
special praise from Stallings.
I don’t know whether he’s like
Sam (Sam Huff, former all-pro
linebacker for the New York
Giants and Washington Red
skins) but I do know he’s mean.”
He also reported that the UM
secondary has intercepted seven
passes in the first two games.
It is led by defensive back Tom
Darden who was voted the out
standing defensive player in the
opening game after making 13
tackles and an interception.
The Aggies again will play on
an artificial turf after taking on
the LSU Tigers and Ohio State
on the real thing.
The Michigan stadium has Tar
tan Turf, and Coach Stallings
said he was pleased to be back
on the artificial playing surface.
“I’m glad we’re back on the
turf. I guess I really got spoiled
Stallings also noted the type
of grass in Ohio.
“It was a type of bluegrass.
It had practically no root sys
tem. The same type we played
on last year at Nebraska.”
The grass situation was
brought up because several Ag
gies had footing problems.
He put a quick end to that situ
ation by noting the Buckeyes had
to play on the same grass to
cover up any excuses.
“They had an extremely good
football team and we played bad
defensively,” he said of the na
tion’s number one-ranked team
in both the United Press Interna
tional and Associated Press
weekly polls.
“It’s not unusual to have one
or two outstanding players on a
team, but they had so many.
They had five or six great ones.
“We didn’t play well and still
we had a chance. It was 27-7
there just before the half and we
got down there ready to score
again. Then we had those four
straight turnovers in the second
half and you’re not supposed to
win when you do that.”
Stallings said linebacker Den
nis Carruth would practice Mon
day for the first time in a month
after recovering from a shoulder
injury. He said also that Steve
Leubbehusen, Chris Johnson and
John Swedeen still will be side
“We didn’t get really hurt
physically in the Ohio State
game except maybe for feelings.’
With the Buckeyes’ convincing
win and the University of Texas
at Austin’s 22 point verdict over
Texas Tech the battle rages for
the top ranking in the polls. TU-
Austin held the lead in the UPI
rating last week but fell to sec
ond in both polls this week.
“It would be a good ball game.
I’d like to see it,” the coach said
of the possible meeting of the two

Bucks hold tight
to top ranking
The State of Colorado has long
been known for its altitude and
this week it has two college foot
ball teams reaching for the
heights, as well.
The University of Colorado and
the Air Force Academy forced
their way into The Associated
Press’ list of Top Ten teams with
impressive victories last Satur
day. Colorado ended Penn State’s
31-game unbeaten string 41-13
and leaped from 18th to eighth
while the Air Force trounced Mis
souri 37-14 and jumped from 20th
to 10th.
The two losers were knocked
out of the Top Ten and barely
managed to find spots in the
Second Tep. Penn State fell from
fourth to 16th and Missouri sank
from ninth to 20th.
The 1-2-3 teams—Ohio State,
Texas and Stanford—were the
only members of the Top Ten to
retain their positions from the
previous week. Ohio State opened
its season with a 56-13 rout of
Texas A&M, Texas defeated Tex
as Tech 35-13 and Stanford rallied
to whip Oregon 33-10.
The top-ranked Buckeyes re
ceived 25 of the 42 first-place
votes cast by sports writers and
broadcasters across the country.
Their 782 points was 24 better
than the 758 polled by Texas,
which received 14 first - place
votes. The Longhorns only trailed
by 13 points a week ago.
Nebraska, eighth last week, was
up to sixth after blanking Army
28-0 but Mississippi’s hard-fought
20-17 triumph over Kentucky
dropped the Rebels from fifth to
Then came Colorado; Michigan,

went from 10th to ninth, and Air

Arkansas, Auburn, UCLA, West
Virginia, Georgia Tech, Penn

the second week in Class A foot
ball are G-l, F-l, Sq. 2, D-2; H-2,
Sq. 11; Sq. 13. Each has a 2-0

strong undefeated teams left.
