By MARK MIHANOVIC
iere are upsets, and then there are
those games 'which can make a season
for an underdog.
For Michigan State, today's 1:00 p.m.
contest against Michigan in front of a
capacity Spartan Stadium crowd in the
kind that falls into the latter category.
Should MSU knock off the three-
touchdown favorite Wolverines, Spar-

tan, followers will see something
redeeming in their team's season,
regardless of its final record. State
braggingrights are at stake, and when
a squad begins its season by losing
three of its first four outings,including
two conference defeats, there is not too
much else to play for.
MICHIGAN STATE'S lone win over
Bowling Green two weeks, ago was a 10-
7 squeaker. The losses were to Illinois,

Special to the Daily
EAST LANSING - Like most sons,
Bryan Clark would have liked nothing
more than to follow in his father's foot-
steps. But when your father happens to
be the head coach of the Detroit Lions,
Monte Clark, "like father, like son"
desires tend to waiver slightly.
"I wasn't referring to coaching when
I said I wanted to be like my father,"
said the Michigan State quarterback
who will get the starting nod in
tomorrow's Michigan-MSU showdown.
"What I would like is a professional
careet. Football has always been an'
important part of my life and I would
like to continue playing for as long as
possible. Of course, if coaching.
followed, I would not mind. I'm sure it

would be pretty interesting."
INTERESTING CERTAINLY, be the
word that would best describe Clark's
three years with the Spartans. When
he arrived at MSU the 6-2, 195 pounder
was being groomed as a future
replacement for record-setting signal-
cailot'Eddie Smith..
The: competition for the job was bet-
ween myself and Bert Vaughn," ex-
plained Clark."I knew that it was going
to be rough, but I felt I could win the job
outright.
The two ended up sharing the QB
duties that season, with Clark ac-
cumulating the better statistics (64-131
for 800 yards and a 49 percent com-
pletion rate). Definitely not numbers to
make the Spartan alumni forget Smith,
but surely good enough to win him the

starting spot in 1980. They did, but only
temporarily.
"I STARTED THE Western
(Michigan) game last year and I
thought I did fairly well," said the 1977
Los Altos (California) High School
MVP. "But obviously coach (Muddy)
Waters felt differently about my per-
formance. I was benched the next
game in place ; of Bert, which did
nothing but confuse me. I felt I was
worthy of the starting spot, but they
saw if differently.",
The confusion ended in midseason,
when Waters gave the starting job to
sophomore John Leister.
"I understand Muddy's position in put-
ting John in," Clark noted. "The team
was going bad at that time last year and
something had to be done to give us that

needed spark. John was that spark."
CLARK CAME 'into this season
knowing that the leadership reigns
were given to Leister, who was elected
offensive captain. Clark said that it
was difficult for him to re-evaluate his
situation with the Spartans.
"I came in this year with the attitude
that I would be ready to play when and
if John could not," said Clark
But now, Leister has fallen on hard
times and Waters is turning back to
Clark in what is clearly a case of quar-
terbacking musical chairs.
"I LOOK ON tomorrow's game as
being a second chance," said Clark. "I
am determined to make sure that I
keep it this time.
Clark said that he readily accepts any
advice that his father is willing to give.

And considering Monte was an all-pro
lineman in Cleveland, there should bq
plenty to offer.
"He always told me to make sure that
you keep your lineman happy," joked
Clark. "Because they determine
whether you're going to be standing up
straight ano4throwing passes or Aan-
ding on your tail and eating dirt. He
must have been right, because Ilve

P'IVOT AL BIG 10O GAME:
'Soarng Bdger battleBcee

By JESSE BARKIN
Having already beaten Michigan and
Purdue, Wisconsin coach Dave McClain
Maid this week's game against Ohio
State is "a pivotal game for us," and
at's easy to see the wisdom in his words.
" e Badgers would be in the driver's
seat to the Big Ten championship if
they should beat the Buckeyes.
But don't send a batch of Rose Bowl
tickets to Madison just yet. Even
though the game is being played at
Camp Randall Satdium in front of
75,000 screaming Wisconsin fans, Ohio
State has not lost to the Badgers since
1959, and after losing a 36-27 game to
.Florida State last week, the Buckeyes
are looking to rebound against
,Wisconsin.
DESPITE THE non-conference loss,
Ohio State is still a Big Ten power and
they still have quarterback Art
Schlichter. Against Florida State,
Schlichter set a Buckeye passing
record with 453 yards in the air. The key,
for the Buckeyes is to establish its run-

V

ning game early. Last week they only
managed 38 yards in 31 carries.
(n defense, Wisconsin has been ex-
tremely effective against the pass,
currently ranked third in the league in
aerial defense and first in interceptions
with 11, one more than they had all of
last year.
Purdue, the winningest team in the
Big Ten the last three years, suddenly
finds itself in the cellar of the conferen-
ce (0-2), as it hosts rival Illinois (2-0),
which surprisingly is at the top of the
standings.
ILLINOIS quarterback Tony Eason
connected on 21 of 29 passes last week
for 330 yards in a 38-29 win over Min-
nesota, but Illini coach Mike White is
looking to gain yardage another way
against the Boilermakers.
"We probably won't be able to throw
deep again," said White. "We probably
will go with the short game and running
game,"
Purdue will need an excellent game
from quarterback Scott Campbell, who

two weeks ago shredded the Notre
Dame secondary for 246 yards in the 15-
14 win over the Irish. Defensively, the
Boilermakers are led by linebacker
Brock Spack, who made 11 solo tackles
against Wisconsin last week.
IOWA HAS been the biggest surprise
in the Big Ten in 1981, holding its last
two opponents (UCLA and North-
western) to a total of seven points. The
Hawkeyes will have their hands full
today, however, trying to stop Indiana's
receiving sensation Duane Gunn. For
Indiana, Gunn is averaging 17.5 yards a
reception, while quarterback Babe
Laufenberg has completed 69 percent of
his passes.

But Iowa, coming off a 64-0 trouncing
of Northwestern, is in good shape to
score another victory over a mediocre
Indiana team. Running back Eddie
Phillips, who scored two touchdowns
last wesek, will be one of the Hawkeye's
top offensive threats.
Minnesota will look ,to fatten its
record this weekend as the Gophers (1-
1) host winless Northwestern. Min-
nesota boasts a balanced offense, with,
fullback Frank Jacobs leading the
ground attack and quarterback Mike
Hohensee directing the aerial show.
Northwestern, starting seven fresh.
man, will be looking for their first
league win in 25 Big Ten games.

The Michigan State volleyball team
travelled to a tri-meet at Grand Valley
yesterday, and swept the contest
*ithout losing a single game.
The Wolverines began the day with a
match against Northern Michigan. The
Blue rolled through the opening game,
15-2, and then took the contest with a 15-
10 triumph in the finale.

The host Grand Valley squad was the
Wolverines' next victim. Michigan took
the afternoon contest with another suc-
cessive game victory, 15-13 and 15-9.
The victories pushed Michigan's
season mark to 22-6. The spikers' next
match is at home against Central
