experienced Badger defense gave
up another touchdown to Purdue
after the second half kickoff. The
Boilermakers marched 75 yards with
Teter going over for the score from
one yard out.
   The lone Wisconsin touchdown
 came near the end of the first half
 when quarterback Harold Brandt
 threw 25 yards to end Jimmy Jones.
 Aside from this momentary ray of
 sunshine in an otherwise gloomy
 afternoon, the Badgers were unable
 to penetrate the tenacious Purdue
 defense. It was, in fact, the Purdue
 defense that produced the final
 Boilermaker score. In the fourth
 period, linebacker Bill Howard
 picked off a Brandt pass and ran it
 back 23 yards for the touchdown.
 Dave Fronek, who normally plays
 a defensive halfback, was pressed
 into service as the offensive quarter-
 back in an attempt to ignite a spark
 on the Wisconsin team. But his at-
 tempts were hastily dampened by
 the Purdue defense who intercepted
 two of his passes. A second new face
 in the Wisconsin offensive lineup
 was sophomore halfback Tom Jan-
 kowski. He had somewhat better
 luck as he picked up 64 yards on 16
 carries.
 There was little to be salvaged
 from the game as far as Wisconsin
 was concerned. Purdue completely
 dominated the action all afternoon.
 Those Badgers who merited com-
 mendation for their play were all
 sophomores-Bob Richter and Bill
 Maselter on defense, and Jankowski
 on offense.
      Wisconsin 31, Iowa 21
            October 17
O   NE of Webster's definitions for
    the word "snook" is: "a gesture
of derision consisting of a thumbing
of the nose." The Badgers, who were
a resurgent football team in this en-
counter, thumbed their collective
noses at Iowa and its quarterback
Gary Snook as they overpowered the
Hawkeyes before a record Camp
Randall Parents' Day. crowd of
65,713.
  Where miscues and lethargy had
characterized the Badgers' perform-
28
ances against Notre Dame and Pur-
due, they wound up doing almost
everything right in this game. Wis-
consin mounted an impressive run-
ning game that netted 262 yards and
Harold Brandt connected on 10 of
18 passes for 131 yards and two
touchdowns. The offensive blocking
was precise and the Badger defense
managed to minimize the devastat-
ing effect of Snook's passing-he
completed 18 of 39 attempts for two
touchdowns.
   Wisconsin scored first when Gary
Pinnow kicked a 35-yard field goal
early in the second quarter. The
Badgers had a surprising 10-0 lead
a short time later. Tackle Roger
Jacobazzi recovered a Snook fumble
on the Iowa 34 and four plays later
Brandt hit end Louis Jung for 20
yards and a touchdown.
  But Iowa bounced right back.
Led by Snook, the Hawkeyes had
two touchdowns in a matter of min-
utes: the first on a 74-yard march,
the second on a 35-yard pass play
after the Badgers fumbled the en-
suing kickoff.
  Iowa left the field with a four-
point halftime lead, but that evap-
orated soon after the beginning of
the second half action. Ron Frain in-
tercepted a Snook pass and ran it
down to the one where Brandt
sneaked over two plays later. The
next Wisconsin scoring thrust was
an 81-yard march which climaxed
when fullback Ralph Kurek banged
over from the one on fourth down
after a determined Iowa goal line
stand. The Badgers scored again
after Dave Fronek intercepted a
Snook pass on the Iowa 42. Brandt
climaxed the drive nine plays later
by throwing eight yards to wing-
back Jimmy Jones.
  Iowa had narrowed the Wisconsin
lead to three points earlier in the
final quarter when Snook guided his
team 70 yards in five plays, but the
Badgers refused to be "snookered"
and ended the day with the ten-
point advantage.
  It was a team effort -that won for
the Badgers, but there were some
noticeable individual performances.
Halfback Ron Smith made three ex-
citing kickoff returns that averaged
43 yards; fullback Ralph Kurek
looked like the Kurek of old as he
gained 103 yards in 29 attempts. The
defense received considerable sup-
port from the efforts of Fronek,
Frain, and Jacobazzi, and the block-
ing of ends Ron Leafblad and Ralph
Farmer and guard John Hohman
opened up the necessary holes for
Badger runners. But the victory
might have been a costly one as the
Badgers lost the services of sopho-
more linebacker Bob Richter who
sustained a dislocated elbow.
   With this victory, which was the
 46th in his term as Badger head
 coach, Milt Bruhn became the sec-
 ond winningest coach in the history
 of Wisconsin football.
