Grant Teaff said about the con-

"However, our young men

STANFORD WIDE RECEIVER Tony Hill is swallowed up by Michigan defendersbDerekF i
ard (10), Mike Holmes (40), and Jim Pickens (18). Unlike last week's game against the Ca
nals, the Baylor Bears offense is basically a ground attack. Both teams are defensive-min
which should guarantee, this kind of hitting throughout the game.

ance, "We've cured him of that.
He won't drop the ball again."
At the tight end position,
freshman Gene Johnson has seen
action this week. George Przy-
godski begins for the Wolverines
at that position but Schembech-
ler said that he might try John-
son in the game today.
Johnson played with Leach
last year at Flint Southwestern

and is well accustomed to re-
ceiving his passes.
Michigan 'and Baylor have
compatable offenses as they both
emphasize the ' ground attack.
However their defenses vary in
strength. As Schembechle: noted
that this game would be a de-
fensive battle, he was probably
thinking about his '74 national
title in scoring defense.

All ten conference teams wili
be in action today as the Big
Ten moves into the second week
of non-conference play. Last
week the conference managed a
composite record of five wins,
four losses, and a tie.
They will be hard pressed to
match that this week as they
face a very tough schedule.
Five of this week's oppon-
ents are ranked in the API
Top 20, and the combined rec-t
ords of the ten teams is a nif-

MSU can't make that claim.
They are plagued by injuries
and barely escaped with a vic-
tory over Miami of Ohio last
week despite being outplayed.
At least one of the Spartans
thinks that they can meet the
challenge, however. . . .. .
Fullback Levi Jackson says,
"It's hardto pull the team to-
gether after all the injuries, but
I think things will go all right I
this week."
Things will most likely go all
right far Woody Hayes this week

themselves as conferertce favor-
ites with solid back to back vic-
tories over MSU and Penn St.
The only thing the Tar Heels
can hope for is a letdown, and
Coach Hayes is doing his bestI
to avoid one. "I'm a mean old
man," admitted Woody, "and I
doubt if they'll be looking
ahead."
Illinois hits the road, travel-
ing into the deep South to face
the eighth ranked Aggies from
Texas A & M. The high rank-
ing is a bit deceiving, :how-
ever, as the Aggies were very
unimpressive last week, stum-
bling to a 7-0 decision over
lightly regarded Mississippi.
The Fighting Illini put on a
good show for their home fans
last week. They outplayed Mis-
souri in the first half and ac-
tually led 20-7 before the Tigers
took over.
They showed a balanced of-
fense, which at times totallyi
