THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINES would like nothing better than to end their
season here in the Rose Bowl. Victories over Purdue and Ohio State will
propel the Wolverines to this sight in Pasadena, California.

Should Michigan be knocked out of Rose Bowl contention by either Purdue or
Ohio State, Bo Schembechler and his troops need not cancel plans for a holiday
trip. They will merely have to rearrange them.
Instead of journeying to-Pasadena, the Wolverines would find themselves in
any one of a number of bowls, according to various bowl officials.
Bowls showing interest in Michigan include the Fiesta, Gator, Sun, Astro-
Bluebonnet, Peach, Tangerine and Liberty bowls. Other bowls considering the
Wolverines are the Sugar and Cotton Bowls. However, the Wolverines must either
lose or the one of their two remaining games against Purdue this Saturday or Ohio
State November 22. "We feel that we can get a team with a little better record
(than Michigan)," said Cotton Bowl Executive Vice-President Jim Brock.
But Sugar Bowl President Mike Smith overlooked ;the Wolverines' losses,
saying, "Despite their (Michigan) three losses, they would add a national flavor."
Realistically speaking, Michigan has a far better chance of going to a minor
bowl should they have three or four losses, than a major bowl.
According to several published reports, an agreement that would
automatically send the Big Ten runner-up to the Fiesta Bowl has been reached by
bowl officials. When asked to confirm or deny the reports a Fiesta Bowl
spokesman said, "This is incorrect. We are looking at the Big Ten runner-up, but
are not necessarily inviting them."
Michigan Athletic Director Don Canham and Assistant Athletic Director Will
Perry were not available for comment yesterday.
The Fiesta Bowl would be of interest to Michigan because it is one of the most
financially rewarding minor bowls. It is reported that each team playing in this
game will receive between $400,000 and $480,000.
Another interesting bowl possibility for the Wolverines would be the Peach
Bowl. According to a Peach Bowl official, North Carolina would be the preferred
team for one of the bids. Hence, if the Wolverines were to go to this bowl, they
would have the opportunity to even the score with a Tar Heel team that upset them
17-15 in last year's Gator Bowl.
