The bird has turned this week, however, into a Cardinial. Cooking the Cardinals will require getting

USC nvaes Georgia Tech
By JEFF SCHILLER
rHE THIRD WEIEgKEND of the 1973 college football season
finds most of the nation's gridiron powerhouses in action
against considerably weaker opposition. Many of the games may
appear to be one-sided affairs, but they still should provide an
inndication of the actual strength of some highly-touted elevents.
In Atlanta, Georgia Tech hosts top-ranked Southern Cal,
which was less than inspiring in winning its opener 17-0 against
Arkansas. The Trojans looked so unimpressive that Coach John
McKay commented, "We played as badly as we could to still
win ...about the only thing we did well was come out of the
t nnl.
T hey made us look slow," McKay continued. "And nobody
last year could makeo ustlook slow. We undoubtedly have some
peopl wh rewy to a."-
Fat or otherwise, the Trojans appear to have too many
horses for the inconsistent Rambling Wreck.
USC's offense is led by the running of' Heisman Trophy can-
didate Anthony Davis and the aerobatics of quarterback Pat
Haden passing to his favorite receivers, Lynn Swann and J. K.
McKay. The attack managed only two TD's against. Arkansas,
but two other scores were nullified by penalties. Defensively,
USC boasts seven returning regulars including All-America line-
backer Richard Wood.
Georgia Tech is trying to rebound from a 41-28 loss to South
Carolina in its opening contest. Carolina scored three quick
touchdowns, and the Georgians spent the rest of the game play-
ing catch-up football. Tech should key their offense around
All-America hopeful, split end Jim Robinson (5-9, 163).
"If I had him that's what I'd do," McKay stated. Tech may
be able to score but it's defense appears too porous to contain
Southern Cal's offense, particularly in light of last week's
showing.
Harriers host MSU, Miami
By MIKE LISULL
THIS YEAR'S CROSS COUNTRY team has a chance to do
something today that no Michigan cross country team has
ever done. Yes, if it beats the hated rivals from East Lansing
today it will be the first time a Michigan cross country team
has ever beaten an MSU team in dual or triangular meet com-
Miami of Ohio will round out today's triangular meet which
all came about due to a scheduling mixup. Miami has a superb
program and is coming off a fifth place finish in last year's
NCAA's. They also return a genuine All-American, Bob Reef
who finished 17th in last year's national championships.
Unfortunately, the Michigan harriers are not at full strength.
Last year's ace Keith Brown is still sidelined with credit prob-
lems and incumbants Bill Bolster and George Khouri are behind
in their training schedules. But Farmer indicates that the rest
of the squad is in excellent shape.
The meet begins at 10:30 a.m. and will start and finish at
the tenth tee of the University Golf Course, located directly
across Stadium Blvd. from Michigan Stadium.
