day to face the Gophers of Minnesota. Le ach pilots the vaunted Michigan option of-
fense which should be in high gear for to lay's Homecoming battle.

ed to 1:45 p.m. The reason
for the change in timeris to

ATLANTA (AP) - Alabama.
vs. Penn State in the Peach
Bowl on New Year's Eve looms
as a possibility, says the bowl's
executive director.
"There are a lot of ifs in-
volved," George Crubley said
yesterday, referring to a re-
match of last year's Sugar Bowl
participants.
ALABAMA, 5-2, but 0-2 in the
SEC, edged Penn State 13-6 in
the Sttgar Bowl in New Orleans,
last New Year's Eve.
"It would certainly generate
a lot of interest in this area,"
he said, confirming that a large
delegation - from the Peach
Bowl will be at the Alabama-
Mississippi State game this
weekend.
"We're interested in Penn
State as the visiting team,"
said Crumbley. ''Despite their
4-3 record, they appear to have
turned their program around
after a slow start."
PEACH BOWL scouts will al-
so attend this week's North
Carolina-Wake Forest, Penn'
State-Temple, Georgia-Cincinna-
ti and South Carolina-North Car-
olina State contests.
He said the Alabama-Penn
State matchup is only one of
many being considered.
"We will not only be speak-
ing with the schools mentioned
but will be talking to schools
in the Big Eight, Big Ten and
Southwest Conference."

Indeed, Michigan's first fouri
Big Ten victims have a com-
bined won-lost record of 4-12.
Minnesota, on the other hand,
is 5-2 overall and 3-1 in the
Big Ten, the lone loss com-
ing last week against Iowa.I
"Minnesota will be a great
challenge," said Schembechler.
"They are big and strong on
defense. Theyhave a quarter-
back who can throw and a very
strong running attack."
But the Gophers are hurting,
and coach Cal Stoll sees prob-
lems in trying to return the
traditional Little Brown Jug
trophy to Minneapolis after its
eight-year absence.
"I'd feel a lot better if we
were going at 'em with a full;
squad," he said yesterday aft-
er sending his team through
a light workout in Michigan
Stadium. "Out of my top 22
players there are 10 who
aren't here or won't be play-4
ing at full strength."
Offensive guard Brien Harvey,
and defensive end Steve Syts-
ma stayed home. Defensive end
Ron Wrobel and safety George
A hick will play on injured
legs.
"I left m' ,arting defensive
end back home and brought two
crippled ones," Stoll said, re-
f rring to Mark Merrill and
Wrobel. Middle guard George
Washington is still out after be-I
ing hurt earlier this year.
"I think that's the basic
difference between the pro-
grams," Stoll said. "Here at
Michigan, he (Schembechler)
has 35 or 40 top-notch play-
ers. If one of those guys goes
down, they just put in another
good player.

because it's the last game they
remember you for."
Dungy's trying not to let the
huge crowd - including many
of his friends and relatives -
or Michigan's awesome reputa-
tion bother him.
"We'll just have to approach
this game like any other,"
he said. "Their defense is
quick and tough, as usual.
No one's been able todrive
80 yards on them on the
ground, so we'll have to throw
well to keep them off balance.
"Every time you make a mis-
take against them, though, their
offense puts seven points on the
board. We played them a good
