Kiclking game may dee
'M' contest with Hawkey
ANN ARBOR (UPI)- Kicking teams
are usually regarded as a secondary
factor in games matching explosive of-
fenses and stalwart. defenses, but
Saturday's battle involving Michigan
and Iowa may be decided by the
kicking phase of the game.
Entering this important Big Ten con-
test, Iowa was ranked among the
*gation's top six leaders in four kicking
categories, while Michigan's statistics
reflect an 11th and third place standing
in the punting categories.
"THE KICKING game will definitely
play a key factor this Saturday, con-
sidering the overall strength of Iowa's
squad," said Michigan Coach Bo
Schembechler, who hasn't faced an
Iowa contingent since 1978.
"They have an exceptional punter in
Reggie Roby, who also kicks off ex-
tremely well and the remainder of their
pecialty teams is just as strong."
Roby's statistics have been im-
pressive. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound junior
currently leads the nation in punting
with a sparkling 54.1 yard average. His
career mark reflects an average of
almost 44 yards, per punt surpasses the
conference record of 43.3 established by
Michigan state's Ray Stachowicz from
1977 to 1980.
MICHIGAN WILL counter the
iawkeye's fine punting game with
their own Don Bracken,whose currently
ranked 11th in the nation with a 44.2
The Wolverine sophomore's punting
average also places him high in the Big
Ten ledgers, as his 43.2 yard career
average places him third in conference
history behind Roby nd Stachowicz.
"When two teams are evenly mat-
ched, the punting and kicking games
become a vitally important factor in the
game," said Schembechler, whose
squad currently is ranked third in net
punting with a 43.8 net yard average.
Iowa ranks second with a 44.8 net yard
"THEIR PUNTING unit is outstan-
ding, but you also have to realize that
they're just as powerful on the return
squad." The Hawkeyes have been ex-
ceptional on the return aspect of their
kicking games, ranking fifth in the
nation in kickoff returns with a 37.8
yards per runback average and 19th in
punt returns with a 10.9 yard per run-
Individually, Jeff Brown is the
Hawkeyes' lethal weapon on the return
unit. Brown has averaged 15.1 yards
per runback this season, a figure which
places him sixth on the NCAA list for
"Overall, Iowa's kicking teams have
been outstanding and solid and we'll
need to combat their strength with the
solidity of our own kicking game," of-
fered Schembechler, whose contingent
is seeking to improve its 4-1 record and
2-1 mark in conference play this year.
