...Enough for Bo
WINNING MOST of your games by large margins might not
seem to most college football teams to be a terrible problem.
But to Bo Schembechler, it presented quite a disconcerting
situation Saturday when he walked into his locker room after
his team's 21-7 victory over arch-rival Michigan State.
"It was hard to believe," Bo described the scene later.
"Here I was walking into my own locker room after winning the
biggest game of the year, and I didn't have a guy saying a word.
They were standing next to their lockers with their heads down-
I thought they lost."

of 17 in a row, set by Steve
Owens of Oklahoma in 1969. 1
Woody Hayes said Griffin
didn't have a particularly good
day, but did add that "he's in
a class by himself."
Greene outshone his roommate
Griffin with 146 yards rushing
and 227 total yards. Greene ran
11 and six yards for touchdowns,'
and completed a six yard pass
to Brian Baschnagel for another.
The most spectacular play of
the day came as Greene ran
11 yards to the Wisconsin five-
yard line, and lateralled to
Baschnagel for the score.
Other scores for Ohio State
were a 43-yard field goal by
Tom Klaban, a nine-yard run
by Griffin, a two-yard run by
fullback "Champ" Henson, and
a four-yard run by substitute
quarterback Steve Morrison.
