QB s featured in 'M'-Illini battle
The Michigan Daily-Saturday, October 25, 1980-Page 9
By GARY LEVY
Michigan and Illinois will each
showcase quarterbacks at the peak of
their respective games when the
Wolverines host the Illini this afternoon
fore an expected Homecoming crowd
105,000 in Michigan Stadium.
John Wangler, who last Saturday rid-
dled the Minnesota secondary in com-
pleting 16 of 22 passes for 227 yards, will
match up against the Illini's controver-
sial Dave Wilson, who broke into the
Big Ten record book with a 35-of-58, 425-
yard effort against Purdue.
Wangler, who has shown no traces of
The starting time for today's Michigan-
Illinois football game has been mored up to
12:35 p.m. for the benefit of ABC telerision,
which is telerising the game on a regional
basis. This will be the Wokerines first net-
work telerision appearance this season.

severe knee injury he suffered in last
ear's Gator Bowl, is mounting an
assault on several Wolverine passing
records. He currently ranks sixth
among all Michigan quarterbacks in
passing yards with 2,270, third in career
touchdown passes with 18, and sixth in
career completions with 144.

precedented case involving academic
eligibility-the Illinois Supreme Court
recently overturned a conference
ruling that ordered Wilson off the field
for the remainder of the season. The
junior college transfer has taken ad-
vantage of the court's ruling, leading
the Illini to a 3-1 Big Ten record and 3-3-
1 overall mark.,
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler,
who has had the dubious task of
preparing for aerial attacks in previous
weeks, said he is well aware of Wilson's
talent and the potent passing attack the
Illini have displayed under first-year
head coach Mike White.
"Illinois has shown that they can
move the football through the air," said
Schembechler. "They have had success
throughout most of the season. We
respect what they can do with the foot-
ball when they decide they want to
"They have a sophisticated passing
attack, but it is hard for me to believe
that it is any more difficult to prepare

Wilson, unlike Wangler, has been
able to spread his throws among
several different receivers, thus
making matters more difficult for the
Michigan secondary. His primary
targets are wide receivers John Lopez
(22 catches for 325 yards), Greg Den-
tino (21 for 216 yards), and fullback
Mike Murphy (21 for 156 yards).
While the Illini have spread the
statistical numbers in their running
game in just as equitable a fashion, it
isn't due to a wealth of talent. White has
had trouble formulating a consistent
ground attack, the primary reason
The team's leading running back,
Mike Holmes, has been sidelined with
injuries and will probably not see action
today. Converted fullback Wayne
Strader will get the starting call at
tailback, while Calvin Thomas, who has
averaged only 3.6 yards per carry thus
far, will start at fullback.
Wangler has been targeting most of
his passes for Anthony Carter, who
pulled in nine of them against Min-
nesota for 142 yards and two touch-
downs. Carter has 26 receptions on the
season, gaining 388 yards, while tight
end Norm Betts (11 receptions) and
wide receiver Alan Mitchell (7 catches)
are a distant second and third behind
Several key Michigan performers are
suffering nagging injuries, but defen-
sive back Marion Body (bruised knee),
and tailbacks Lawrence Ricks
(sprained ankle) and Butch Woolfolk
(bruised ribs) are expected to play.

hope to derail Purdue
By MIKE BRADLEY
Although the Surgeon General has issued no warnings that the excitement
generated by this week's Big Ten games will cause heart failure, conference con-
tenders can't deny that their games are crucial.
Purdue hosts Michigan State in an important game for both squads. The
Boilermakers look to continue their surge toward the Rose Bowl, while the Spar-
tans will be trying to avoid their first-ever 0-4 league start. Mark Herrmann leads
e conference in passing efficiency, and split end Bart Burrell is the second-
ranked receiver in the nation.
JOHN LEISTER recorded his third straight 200-yard passing effort for
Michigan State last week, and for the first time in a month, the Spartans are
healthy. However, their inexperienced secondary will have fits controlling Herr-
Earle Bruce's 10th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes charge into Camp Randall
Stadium to meet Wisconsin, where the Buckeyes' conference-leading ground at-
tack will run head on into the Badgers' top-rated rushing defense. Quarterbact Art
Schlichter will undoubtedly take advantage of Wisconsin's vulnerable secondary,
aking use of standout receiver Doug Donley.
The Badgers' anemic offense showed signs of stability last week, as quarter-
back John.Josten directed the option attack for 244 yards.
,LTHOUGH IOWA has been playing consistent football of late, something
always seems to go wrong for coach Hayden Fry's team. This week, the Hawkeyes
travel to Minnesota to take on a mistake-prone Gopher squad.
The Hawkeye defense has not allowed a touchdown in two of its last three
games, and Phil Seuss leads an offense that has been unable to score, garnering
only eight touchdowns all season.
Tailbck Marion Barber paces the potent Gopher ground game, complemented
by fullback Garry White and freshman quarterback Tim Salem. Minnesota's
defense has been adequate, but penalties and turnovers have spelled a lack of
overall success for Joe Salem's team.
' AFTER A TOUGH 27-17 loss to Ohio State last Saturday, Indiana moves on to
vanston to face hapless Northwestern. Even if the Hoosiers were to lose two of
their last five contests (they must face Michigan November 1 and Purdue Novem-
ber 22), they would finish 7-4 and could still maintain hope for a second consecutive
