"Those two breaks really didn't de-

As far as Indiana was concerned, the

Most of McNulty's completions were
early in the game, however, as the
Hoosier signalcaller lobbed screen passes
to fullback Ken St. Pierre for good yard-
age. But the begrudging Michigan de-
fense made a minor adjustment and the
Hoosiers were forced to look for other
ways of attack.

ground attack took its toll early in the
game and the Hoosiermen were simply
outclassed.
Behind so early in the game, Indiana
was forced into a gambling type of de-

wide open.
On both of Taylor's touchdown jaunts
the Hoosier defense was in a close set
defense, with almost 10 men on the line
of scrimmage. Once Taylor broke past
the line, it was simply a matter of open
field running before he tallied six points.
Schembechler said after the game,
"They used a goal line defense a lot and
