Special To The Daily
MADISON - Michigan's rout-
hungry football fans may get
another rude awakening today
as the 5-0 Wolverines challenge!
t h e upset - minded Wisconsin
Badgers, 3-2 on the year.
"If you're looking for an up-
set possibility, this game is as
good as any," warns Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler.
"Don't pay any attention to
their 52-7 loss to Ohio State.
Wisconsin moved the ball
against them. Ohio State
didn't stop Wisconsin's of-
fense; turnovers did."
Schembechler s a i d a f t e r
watching game films that a
major turning point in the;
Buckeyes' lopsided victory oc-
curred early in the game.
"Ohio State had to punt and
a Wisconsin kick returner was1
blocking an Ohio State player.

"The OSU guy tried to jump
over the blocker, and the ref-:
eree called a penalty on Wis-
consin for blocking below the
waist.
"The ball went back to Ohio
State, and they scored a touch-
down to take the lead. I would-
n't say Wisconsin would have
won if that call hadn't been
made, but it sure turned the
game around."
Many writers who regularly
cover the Badgers claim the
Wolverines do not compare
with Ohio State. One wrote
that anyone who saw theI
highlights of Michigan's win
over Michigan State knows
that Michigan is not on the
same level as the Bucks.
The Badgers ran through
Ohio State's defense for 324
offensive yards, but intercep-
tions continually gave the Buck-
eyes possession. When the

Bucks had the ball, they scored.
The Wisconsin running attack
is both powerful and deep. Tail-
back Bill Marek gained 114
yards rushing in a quarter and
a half of playing time against
Missouri, and teams with full-
back Ken Starch in the Badger
backfield.
Ron Pollard, Larry Canada,
and Mike Morgan will also see
action today, as Badger coach
John Jardine likes to keep his
backfield fresh.
Quarterback Gregg Bohlig had
a string of twelve consecutive
pass completions broken against
the Buckeyes. His favorite tar-
get is flanker Jeff Mack, a

Strinko, however, is still hav-

Whether or not the injury will

tie.
Weather could play a major
role in today's game. One early
report called for clear skies and
temperatures in the sixties, bu
a revised version predicts cooler
temperatures with rain or snow
possible.

Ohio State currently boasts a
5-0 season mark, and the upset-
minded Hoosiers pose only a
mild threat to Woody Hayes'
football machine.
"They (Indiana) would like to
pull an upset," Hayes said,
"but we won't let them."

VARSITY RESERVES WIN, 14-6

Baby
By GORDON ATCHESON
Both the weather and the
Michigan Varsity Reserve foot-
ball squad were cold as yester-
day's game began, but, unlike
the temperature, Baby Blue
finally heated up and burned
Notre Dame 14-6.
The Fighting Irish reservists'
carried a 6-0 lead into the
locker room at half time, only
to be overwhelmed by a re-
vitalized Michigan ground at-
tack in the second half.
STILL, Michigan did not lock
up the victory until late in the
fourth quarter when the team
marched the length of the field,
without throwing a pass, to
score the insurance touchdown.
Paced by freshman tailback
Mike Smith's 129 rushing yards
and key sprints from Smith's
replacement, Joe Holland, the
Wolverines put together a series
of sustained drives, while the
Irish failed to achieve momen-
tum in the second half.
The victory upped Michigan's
record to 2-0, the other win
coming at Notre Dame's ex-
pense earlier this season. On
the other hand, the Irish have
yet to win.
Mixing tough up-the-middle
running with quick sweeps, the
Wolverines dashed the Irish
hopes of earning that initial vic-
tory with an 18-play series cul-
minating in the insurance touch-
down with just three minutes
left.
KEVIN KING, another fresh-
man, notched the six points on
a plunge from two yards out.
He and Holland provided the
offensive punch for the drive,
rushing for a combined total
of 60 yards.
In the final minutes of the
game, defensive back Kurt

for Malone
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -
Moses Malone, just four months
out of high school, played his

Blue
Kampe intercepted two despera-'
tion passes tossed by Irish quar-
terback Gary Forystek-a highly'
touted freshman from Dearborn
Divine Child, who was highly
sought by the Michigan recruit-
ers.
Forystek split the quarter-'
backing duties with Mike Fa-
lash, who engineered Notre
Dame's only scoring drive. The
score, like Michigan's, capped'
an extended string of bruising
running plays.
Irish halfback Frank Bonder
went over from the three yard
line after carrying the ball 10
times in the second quarter
series-the only effective drive
Notre Dame mounted all after-
noon.
A workhorse, Bonder finished
as the Irish's top groundgainer,
picking up 108 yards in 28 car-
ries-mostly power plays direct-
ly into the teeth of the Baby
Blue defense.
NEITHER TEAM passed par-
I ticularly well, although Michi-
gan's first touchdown came on
a short toss from Roger Bettis
to tight end Dave Harding.
Bettis went the distance at
the Wolverine helm finishing
with four completions in 10
attempts.
The game statistics reflected
Michigan's dominance of the
second half, as they trailed
Notre Dame in most categories
at half time.
A horde of Wolverine runners
rambled for 17 first downs-
four more than the men from
South Bend could produce-and
totaled 325 yards to 141 for the
losers.
Significantly, Michigan played
a surprisingly error-free game,
considering the team has work-
ed together little as a unit. Their
only turnover was a fumble
-which occurred deep in Irish
territory. The team also drew
only a single penalty during the
entire contest.
The Varsity Reserve will wind
up its schedule with games
against Bowling Green and
Toledo early next month.

that's number two in the Big
Ten against a Spartan defense
that is also number two in the'
conference.
The contest should feature a
quarterbacking duel between
Jim Kopatz and Jeff Hollen-:
bach of Illinois and Charley
Baggett of MSU.
Up in Minneapolis, Iowa and
Minnesota will do battle for the
dubious honor of possessing
Floyd of Rosedale. Floyd, a!
bronze pig, is a travelling trophy(
awarded to the winner of this
traditional contest.
The Gophers, 2-3 overall and
0-2 in the Big Ten, hope the
return of quarterback Tony
Dungy will revive an offense
that has scored just three
points in its last two games.
The Hawkeyes, 1-1 in league

olay and 2-3 overall, have risen
from the dead under the coach-
ing of Bob Commings and are
a slight favorite.
The final Big Ten game pits
the erratic Boilermakers of
Purdue against their pitiful host,
the Wildcats of Northwestern.
Purdue boasts a fine young
quarterback in sophomore Mark
Vitali. The Boilermaker defense
should be strengthened by the
return of 6-7, 274 pound tackle
Ken Novak, who has missed two
games with an ankle injury.
Northwestern will try to par-
lay the passing of Mitch An-
derson and the running of full-
back Jim Trimble into their
first conference win of the
season.
Defensively, the Wildcats rank
ninth in the Big Ten. Iowa
scored 35 points on them last
week, and Vitali should be able
to put enough points on the
board to register Purdue's sec-
ond victory of the year.
