1. PENN STATE
2. NAVY (2-0)
3. PITT (2-0)
everything is jazzed up at PITT these days. Coach John Michelosen still roams
the sidelines, but now passes float through the air like so much tossed
confetti, and last Saturday a huge sign on the wall in Pitt Stadium informed
visiting Washington, "We're ready with Freddy." The Panthers were.
Quarterback Fred Mazurek directed Pitt to a 13-6 victory. Skillfully handling a
freewheeling attack full of deceptive reverses, options and pass plays, Mazurek
sneaked over from the one-yard line for Pitt's first touchdown and completed 11
out of 16 passes, including a 14-yarder to End Joe Kuzneski for a second one.
He also harassed Washington dreadfully on defense. When the Huskies threatened
with 10 minutes to go, Freddy was ready. He intercepted Bill Douglas' pass on
the 13-yard line and took Pitt on an 86-yard drive that fizzled out on the
Husky one. Even Chancellor Edward H. Litchfield, who watched the "new"
Panthers through huge field glasses from his command post on the 50-yard line,
liked what he saw. "This is the kind of game I've wanted around here for a
long time," he said.
flashy passing and catching by Quarterback Pete Liske and Halfback Junior
Powell out of its new swing T, PENN STATE needed a 32-yard field goal by Ron
Coates to put down stubborn UCLA 17-14. Using Z-Back Don Caum mostly as a
decoy, Liske completed 19 out of 27 passes, nine to Powell, who carried one 52
yards for a touchdown. But the pesky Bruins found a way to beat the Lions'
defense. They sent Quarterback Larry Zeno rolling out away from State's monster
linebacker, and he passed for two touchdowns.
Staubach picked at William and Mary with his deft passes (12 out of 17 for 206
yards) and scrambling runs (for 91 yards), set a new Navy record for total
offense as the Indians succumbed 28-0. ARMY got around to unveiling its passing
game, and Quarterback Rollie Stichweh, although no Staubach, was respectable
enough. He completed nine out of 14 as the Cadets beat Cincinnati 22-0.
spotted Wichita 10 points and then had to hustle back on Jack Concannon's
passing to beat the Shockers 22-16. WEST VIRGINIA'S Jerry Yost and Dick
Leftridge were too much for Boston U. and the Terriers lost 34-0. HOLY CROSS
and BUFFALO played to a 6-6 tie.
Harvard, the Ivy League favorites, had their troubles. Dartmouth barely beat
Bucknell 20-18. HARVARD battled MASSACHUSETTS to a 0-0 tie. Meanwhile COLUMBIA,
PRINCETON and PENN looked like challengers. Archie Roberts threw for three
touchdowns and ran for two as Columbia thumped Brown 41-14; Fullback Cosmo
Iacavazzi, bombing away for 102 yards, led Princeton to a 24-0 win over
Rutgers. Penn trounced Lafayette 47-0. YALE squeezed past Connecticut 3-0, but
Cornell lost to COLGATE 21-17.
