WILDCAT DEFENSE YIELDS 626 YARDS

9-14 yesterday before 27,013 chilled and
rWhatever it was, the lopsided win only set the stage for
ichigan's dramatic season climax, coming up the next two
Saturdaysagainst Purdue and Ohio State. Those two games
still mean everything to the Wolverines' chances for a Big
Ten title and a third consecutive Rose Bowl bid.
"It still is in our hands," said Bo Schembechler after the
game. "A game like this doesn't show us much, because we
ran right through them. We're still going to have to work
damn hard to get ready for next week."
Schembechler had said all-week that he planned to use
the Northwestern game to get his offense moving. The
Wildcat defense, playing like patched-up tissue paper, did
little to hamper that goal.
Michigan scored the first five times it got the ball on
drives of 80, 79, 75, 71, and 59 yards, rolling to a 35-14 halftime
lead. By the end of the game, the Wolverines had turned nine
of their twelve possessions into scores - eight touchdowns
and Gregg Willner's fourth field goal of the year.
THE OFFENSIVE totals were Michigan's highest of the
year - 626 total yards, 470 yards on the ground, and a
whopping 37 first downs.
"We didn't even run the option that much," noted
Schembechler. "Basically, all we did was hand off the ball
Quarterback Rick Leach, who played a part in his team's
first four scoring plays, led the assault once again by hitting
all six passes he tried. On the way, he left school, conference,
and NCAA records in his wake.
TWO MINUTES into the second quarter, Leach zipped a
pass to Ralph Clayton and the junior wingback sped
untouched for a 41-yard score. It made the score 21-7, and it
made Leach the all-time Big Ten leader in total offense.
Five minutes later, Leach upped the Wolverines' lead to
28-7, breaking two tackles on his way to a 12-yard touchdown.
It was the 74th regular season touchdown he accounted for at
Michigan, moving him past Arizona State's Danny White as
the most prolific six-point man in NCAA history.
Leach gave the stat freaks one final thrill on Michigan's
first possession of the second half, waltzing in from five
yards for Michigan's sixth score. It was the 34th time Leach
had found the end zone on the running play. That's one more
than the previous leader - all-time Michigan wonder back
LEACH HAD MADE his only mistake of the game three
plays before the touchdown that broke Harmon's record.
Only five yards from the end zone, Leach rolled right, turned
upfield and fumbled the ball into the hands of Northwestern's
"Besides the fumble, I played a flawless game," Leach
commented. Schembechler agreed that his prized pupil, who
