Buekeyes to face

MSU

By BARB BARKER
The Big Ten moves into its second
week of inter-conference football today,
and although most of the nation's
gridiron fans will have their eyes fixed
on the Michigan-Notre Dame clash in
Ann Arbor, there are also two intercon-
ference and four other outside confron-
tations scheduled.
Second year Michigan State Coach
Muddy Waters should have his share of
problems when he pits his Spartans
against Heisman trophy hopeful quar-
terback Art Schlichter and the rest of
Coach Earle Bruce's Buckeyes in
Columbus. Last Saturday in their
openinggame 27-17 loss to Illinois, the
Spartans were plagued by numerous
opening game mistakes, turning the
ball over six times and committing
seven penalties that resulted in 92 yards
being walked off against Michigan
State.

Muddy waters ahead
for Leister, Spartans

ACCORDING TO Waters, his team
suffered from "too many jitters, too
many fumbles, and too many miscues."
The Spartans do have one bright spot in
quarterback John Leister, who proved
to be the bulk of the team's offense last
week as he hit on 17 of 34 passes for 225
yards and one touchdown. However,
MSU may be without the services of
freshman prep All-American running
back Aaron Roberts, who lost three
teeth in last week's game. Either way,
the Spartans will have a hard time with
the Buckeyes, who chalked-up 34 points
to Duke's 13 in their season-opener.
Schlichter ran and passed for a total of

TWO OF THE nation's most exciting
football players will be in action in Big
Ten games today. Art Schlichter

game, while Syracuse's all-time

against Illinois.

227 yards, which moved him into second
place on the Big Ten's all-time total of-
fense list behind Purdue's Mark Her-
mann.
In the ther inter-conference game,
the Minnesota Gophers will play host
to coach Jim Young's Purdue Boiler-
makers. Although both teams emerged
victorious from their opening game
confrontations, the Gophers' perfor-
mance was less impressive. With a 66-
yard pass by quarterback Mike Hohen-
see late in the fourth quarter, the
Gophers were able to score, just barely
sliding by Ohio University, 19-17.
PURDUE, ON THE other hand,
opened impressively with a 27-19 vic-
tory over 18th ranked Stanford.
Tailback Jimmy Smith, .wh'o scored
three touchdowns against the Car-
dinals, including one on a 100-yard
kickoff return, should definately be an
asset for the Boilermakers in today's
game. It could be close, but Purdue has
an edge.
In a non-conference pair-up, the Iowa
Hawkeyes will travel across the state to
face Iowa State. Last Saturday, Iowa
scored an unexpected victory' when
they stunned the sixth-ranked
Nebraska Cornhuskers, 10-7. Despite
the upset, Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry
remains cautious. "Offensively, we
have a long way to go," he said. The
Cyclones also came out on top last week
with a 17-13 victory over West Texas
State. The Hawkeyes, however, look.
like the best bet in this, cross-state
rivalry.
After last week's upsetting Badger
victory over Michigan, it should prove
quite interesting to see how Dave Mc-
Clam's troup stacks-up against the
ninth-ranked UCLA Bruins in today's
confrontation at Madison. Badger All-
Big Ten middle guard Tim Krumrie,
who was named AP defensive "player-
of-the-week" after racking up 13
tackles against Michigan last week,
should definitely prove to be an asset to
the Wisconsin defense.
DESPITE THEIR early success,
Wisconsin should have their hands full
with the Bruins, who won their first
Pac-10 game last week, 35-18, over
Arizona. Quarterback Tom Ramsey,
who scored a career high three touch-
downs against the Wildcats, will be the
man to watch. All things considered, it

r

seems less than likely that there will be
another Madison upset.
The Indiana Hoosiers will have their
work cut out for them when they visit
Los Angeles to play the USC Trojans,
who proved they were a team to be
reckoned with after beating Tennessee,
43-7, last week. The Trojans held the
Vols to just 159 yards total offense while
piling up 532 yards themselves. On the
other side of the field, the Hoosiers
barely slid by Norhtwestern with a 21-20
win last week.
After last year's no-win season,
rookie Wildcat coach has no where to
take his team but up. Unfortunately,
today's Little Rock game with Arkan-
sas will not be the one to erase that all
familiar zero in the left hand side of
the Wildcat win-lose record. Last week,
the Razorbacks rallied back in the four-
th quarter for 'a 14-10 triumph over
Tulsa. Today's confrontation should
prove to be a test in physical endurance
for the Razorback offense.
In another non-conference contest,
Illinois will play host to the Syracuse
Orangeman. The Illini, who downed
Michigan State last week, have an
overall 1-1 record after losing to Pit-
tsburgh on September 5. The
Orangemen are 0-2. Syracuse's Jo
Morris, the NCAA's leading returning
career rusher entering 1981 with 3,105
yards, will be sure to bring some ex-
citement to this confrontation.

Despite last week's shocking loss to
Wisconsin, a cheering throng of over
3,000 Wolverine supporters jammed
Regent's Plaza last night in a stirring
and emotional pep rally that sent
Michigan fans away fired-up for
today's contest against top-ranked
Notre Dame.
"The Michigan defense will be ready
to play tomorrow," defensive co-
captain Robert Thompson assured the
crowd.
COACH BO Schembechler, who today
will be walkingthe sidelines for the 200th
time in his career, added "It won't take
any miracles to beat Notre Dame-all
we need is a typical Michigan game."

In addition to Thompson and Schem-
bechler, offensive co-captain Kurt
Becker told the partisans that "the luck
of the Irish" would pose no problem for
the Wolverine offense.
The Michigan Marching Band, which
earlier in the day performed in Grand
Rapids at the Gerald R. Ford Presiden-
tial Museum dedication, played a
variety of numbers, including, the
theme' from "The Greatest American
Hero and "Celebration."
MEN'S GYMNASTICS coach Newt
Loken led the proceedings with the help
of the Michigan cheerleading squad.
Conspicious by his absence was
Michigan radio announcer and en-
thusiast Bob Ufer, who was unable to
attend the rally due to doctor's orders.
Although Ufer's absence put a dam-
per on the crowd, Maize and Blue sup-
porters were nevertheless able to
summon a rousing tribute. to the
Wolverine broadcaster with repeated
cheers of "U-fer, U-fer, U-fer."
In addition, Loken urged the
Michigan fans to sign a giant get-well
card for the ailing Michigan stalwart.
