'M' icers stop MS U,
By BARB BARKER
With all of the fresh-fallen snow out-
side last night, one could not help
thinking of Christmas. And indeed, it
must have seemed like Christmas to the
Michigan hockey team as the icers
nabbed a 4-3 victory over the CCHA fir-
st-place Michigan State Spartans.
A Dave Richter goal in the third
period clinched the Wolverine victory
over the Spartans in front of a rabid bi-
partisan 7,208 near-capacity crowd at
Yost Ice Arena.
PAUL KOBYLARZ passed to
Richter at the face-off circle, where
Richter fired a long slap-shot that slid
in to the right of Scott's stick.
Earlier in the period, a Yoxheimer
goal at the 5:05 mark broke a 2-2 tie.
Yoxheimer was able to slip one in from
the left off of a Steve Richmond pass.
The Spartans retaliated with a goal
by Brown at the 13:28 mark, but they
were unable to score again, giving
Michigan the win.
THE SPARTANS wasted no time get-
ting down to business in the first period,
as they chalked up the first score of the
game at the 1:58 mark.'
MSU center Newell Brown flipped a
pass from the right corner to wing Nigel
Thomas. Thomas fired a low, hard shot
to the left that caught Michigan goalie
Jon Elliott by surprise, slipping bet-
ween the pad and the post.
The Spartans were able to net their
second goal of the period after
Wolverine winger Dennis May was
whistled for high sticking, leaving
Michigan with a one-man disadvan-
tage. Brown passed to defenseman
Gary Haight, who slapped a shot that
deflected off of a Wolverine skate and
into the net.
MICHIGAN threatened to score
several times in the period, including a
solid shot by Yoxheimer that just
missed deflecting off the post and into
the goal. All other attempts to score
were thwarted, however, as the
Wolverines were unable to get the puck
past Michigan State All-American
goalie candidate Ron Scott.
"Scott played real well," said
Michigan head coach John Giordano.
"It was a false 2-0 score after the first
period. We just never got started."
In the second period, the Wolverines
came back from the lockerroom
determined to even the score, chalking-
up two goals in the first three minutes
of the period.
THE FIRST goal came at the 1:03
mark when Yoxheimer won the face-
off, and passed to Grade at center.
Grade put the puck in the net to Scott's
left, scoring the first goal of his colleges
The second Wolverine goal occurred
when May broke away, skating down
the ice where he fired unsuccessfully at
the goal. Billy Reid snapped up the
rebound and shot for the point.
The Michigan icers travel to Munn
Ice Arena in East Lansing tonight,
where the Spartans will try to avenge
last night's loss. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

A Daily Sports Analysis
As the college football regular season
draws to a close, fans inevitably look to
post-season honors to pacify the anxiety
of gameless Saturdays. All-Big Ten, All
-America, and the most prestigious and
well known of them all - the Heisman
According to the Downtown Athletic
Club of New York City, which awards
the trophy, the Heisman Trophy is
awarded each year to the "Outstanding
college football player in the United
States. But more accurately, it is given
to the best running back in the country.
Starting with Nebraska's Johnny
Rodgers in 1972, the last nine winners
have been running backs.
The 1981 Heisman Trophy winner will
most likely be USC running back Mar-
OTHER PLAYERS are in the run-
ning, most notably Georgia's Herschel
Walker, Brigham Young's Jim Mc-
Mahon, and Penn State's Curt Warner,
but Allen is a virtual shoo-in for the
With one game remaining, the 6-2,
202, Allen has become the first
collegiate gridder ever to rush for more
than 2,000 yards in a season. And in so
doing, he has broken eight NCAA
His 212.3 yards per game (5.9 yards a
carry) is some 46 yards better than
second-place Walker's average. In ad-
dition, he is USC's leading pass catcher
with 25 receptions.
THE 6-1, 222-pound Walker is second
in the nation in rushing, averaging 166.6
yards a game, for a 4.8 per carry
average. He is fourth in all-purpose
running and fifth in scoring, leading the
defending national champion Bulldogs
to 9-1 record.
While Allen and Walker are the best
running backs in the nation, Brigham
Young's Jim McMahon may be the
top quarterback. McMahon leads the
nation in total offense (322.9 yards a
game), and is the second-ranked
passer. McMahon has competed 237 of
369 attempts for an NCAA high of 2990
Penn State running back Curt Warner
was a major figure in the race for the
Heisman, but has missed three of the
Nittany Lions' last four games with a
pulled hamstring. The 5-11 junior has
averaged 132.6 yards in seven games
for a 6.4 average.
THE BIG TEN boasts three of the
nation's best quarterbacks in
Schlichter, Illinois' Tony Eason and
Purdue's Scott Campbell, but each is a
longshot for the Heisman. The 6-2
Schlichter holds nearly every Buckeye
Eason has been the nation's leading
passer through much of this season,
completing 221 passes in 358 attempts,
for 2,951 yards, second in the nation
Campbell has completed 168 of 290
pass attempts for 2,475 yards and 17
touchdowns in the pass-happy Big Ten.

Braving the swirling snow and chilly
winds, several thousand die-hard
Michigan fans showed up at the Mud-
bowl in front of the Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon fraternity last night to cheer their
team on to a victory over Ohio State.
The highlight of the rally was when
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler took
the microphone and told the boisterous
crowd that his team was dedicating the
OSU game to Bob Ufer, the long-time
Wolverine football broadcaster who
died last month. "Tomorrow, we can
look up to that football Valhalla in the
sky and say 'Ufe, we did it again," said
Bo, while the crowd cheered wildly.
THE MICHIGAN Marching Band
was on hand,,and spurred on the crowd
by playing "The Victors," as well as
favorites such as "Temptation" and
"Hawaiian War Chant." The Wolverine
cheerleaders also led several cheers of
"Let's Go, Blue!" -
Former Michigan quarterback John
Wangler was the emcee for the rally,
and pointed to the Wolverine-Buckeye
clash as one of college football's
biggest games. "People talk abut some
of the great football rivalries," said
Wangler. "USC and Notre Dame;
