olverines attempt to put out Irish lights

the Notre Dame offense. "The most en-
couraging thing this fall has been the
play of Blair Kiel," said the Irish head
man. "He knows he is the man; he is
more relaxed back there and he really
has improved his technique."
The man Kiel will most often be
throwing to is senior tight end Tony
Hunter. Hunter was the leading Irish
receiver last year with 28 catches for
397 yards.
Also returning for Notre Dame are its
top two rushers of a year ago-senior
tailback Phil Carter and junior tailback
Greg Bell. Seniors Larry Moriarty and
John Sweeney will both see time at
fullback. Senior center Mark Fischer
and senior guard Tom Thayer anchors
the veteran Irish offensive line.
WHEN THE Wolverines have the
ball, look for Notre Dame linebacker
Mark Zavagnin and free safety Dave
Duerson to make their presence felt.
And Duerson, for one, isn't planning on
the Irish repeating last season's per-
formance.
"Last season was a different year for
us. Most of us hadn't experienced
losing like that in our careers," said the
senior defensive back. "I think we've
all got something to prove this time."
Mike Gann and Bob Clasby are slated
to start at two tackles for the Irish but
nose tackle Tim Marshall is out with a
sprained foot and he'll be replaced by
junior Jon Autry.
Kiel handles the punting chores for
Notre Dame - he averaged 39.9 yards
per punt last year - while senior Mike
Johnston is expected to take over the
placekicking duties from the graduated
Harry Oliver.
THE WOLVERINES are expected to
line up much the same way they did
against the Badgers last week. Junior
Greg Armstrong will again start at
fullback, though Gerald Ingram - who
missed last week's game with an infec-
ted toe - is expected to see some ac-
tion. Sophomore tight end Eric Kattus
has recovered from a slight knee injury
and is penciled in as the backup to
Craig Dunaway.
The Michigan offense will once again
rely heavily on the running of tailback
Larry Ricks (who gained 153 yards last
week), the throwing and running of
quarterback Steve Smith, and the pass-
catching of flanker Anthony Carter.
But the biggest key may be the con-
tinued emergence of the offensive line,
which played so well last week. "We
had great respect for Wisconsin's front
and our offensive line handled it very
well," said Schembechler.

"Maybe Michigan did lose some big
names up front," said Faust. "But
when can you remember a Michigan
team that didn't have great runners
and a great offensive line? They
always have people who get the job
done, that's the bottom line."
TONIGHT'S game is the fifth since
Michigan and Notre Dame resumed
their rivalry in 1978, and the series is
tied at two victories apiece since then.
Since 1887, however, Michigan holds an
11-4 series edge.

Faust's enthusiasm for the night gaine.,
"I am opposed to night football," he
said. "It's a pain in the neck laying
around waiting to play a football
game."
Notre Dame Stadium's 45th con-
secutive sellout crowd (59,075) will be
on hand to watch the historic contest,
and Irish tri-captain Duerson probably
summed up their feelings best when he
said: "We want to remember the night
the lights went on at Notre Dame."

Blue off to
South Bend
By JOHN KERR
With the Michigan cheerleaders,
Symnastics coach Newt Loken, and the
arching band leading the cheers, ap-
proximately 1,500 people turned out in
front of South Quad yesterday after-
noon to send the Wolverine football
team off to face Notre Dame in South
Bend.
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler,
who organized the short, fifteen-minute
rally, and his tri-captains, Anthony
Carter, Robert Thompson, and Paul
Girgash, all gave short speeches as the
rest of the team watched from the front
*wn of South Quad. Not surprisingly,
all of the speakers were confident of
victory.
"I THINK you'll see one fired-up
football team Saturday night," Carter
told the enthusiastic gathering, "and I
think we'll come up victorious."
Both Girgash and Thompson agreed
that fan support was a key to
Michigan's fortunes against the Irish.
"I know the inspiration you give to us
n the field," Thompson said, "and I
just wish all of you could be there
Saturday to give us support."
"WITH YOUR help, we can come
back victorious," Girgash said.

The Lady Wolverine Invitational golf

front-running Bowling Green squad.
Karyn Colbert led the Wolverines

Bowling Green ended the day with a1

a first-round total of 338. Ferris State
was fourth, five shots behind Michigan.

error, and Johnson moved to third
before Larry Herndon singled him
home.
LAGA HIT his second homer of the
season in the fourth inning off Brian
Denman, 2-2, and the Tigers made it 5-4
in the sixth on Lemon's two-run homer,
his 15th.
Making only his second start of the
month, Petry did not allow a run until
two were out in the ninth. Carney Lan-
sford walked, and consecutive singles
by Wade Boggs and Reid Nichols
produced the run, bringing on Aurelio
Lopez in relief.

Much of the pre-game talk this week
has centered on the lights that are
making this the historic contest that it
is. And Faust, for one, likes the novelty
of it. "Playing a football game against
Michigan is always a big event at Notre
Dame," he said. "This year, adding the
fact that this will be the first night foot-
ball game ever at Notre Dame, makes
it even more of a special date."

MINNESOTA, PURDUE CLASH ON REGIONAL TV

Top competition invades Big Ten

By LENNY ROSENBLUM
When kickoff time finally arrives tonight at South C
Bend, the rest of the Big Ten will have already com- C
pleted their games. Two intra-conference games will h
highlight the schedule as the rest of the teams will tryI
to improve on the Big Ten's record against non- a
league foes.a
The best match-up could be the regionally televised
Minnesota-Purdue battle. Purdue is trying to recover h
from a 35-14 loss to Stanford and the strong arm of o
John Elway. Rookie coach Leon Burtnett is still c
looking for his first win with the Boilermakers, but it
won't come easy against the tough Golden Gophers. C
Last week, the Gophers exploded on offense for a F
school-record 742 total yards, as they destroyed Ohio0
University 57-3. Minnesota is led by quarterback L
Mike Hohensee and tailback Tony Hunter, who s
gained 124 yards on just seven carries.Z
AT EAST Lansing, Michigan State will host Ohio L
State. Michigan State's hopes rest on its defense's
ability to stop the run. The Buckeyes, with the depar-a
ture of Art Schlichter, have reverted to relying on
their ground attack which is led by tailback Tim
Spencer, who gained 147 yards in last week's 21-14
victory over Baylor. MSU's offense relies heavily on I
quarterback John Leister and a fine crop of
receivers.
le in a much mobility and such a strong arm, he can
ht of do just about anything."
Running under Eason's numerous passes this
season will be returning starters Mike Martin
(split end), Oliver Williams (wide receiver)
llinois and Miguel DeOliver (tight end).
quan- DUE TO the team's offensive philosophy, the
nsfers. running backs also play an integral role on pass
tran- plays. A perfect example is tailback Joe Curtis
them who hauled in 35 passes last year. But a run-
s may ning back's job is to run the ball first and catch
his JC the ball second. It is a major concern that the
ena to Fighting Illini's backs must improve. Illinois'
leading rusher a year ago was the now-
owl, it departed Calvin Thomas with 390 yards. The
WA or top returning rusher is Curtis who tallied a
Tony mere 312 yards.

Mike White's Fightin' Illini will be playing in the
Carrier Dome against the Orangemen of Syracuse.
Illinois, already 2-0, should be able to roll by the
Orangemen with its strong air attack. This attack is
led by Heisman candidate, Tony Eason. Last week,
Eason threw for 301 yards against Michigan State
and was named Big Ten offensive player of the week.
The Iowa Hawkeyes will host intra-state rival Iowa
State. Iowa was whipped by Nebraska last week, but
hopes to win their state's bragging rights with a win
over its intra-state rival. Iowa State won last year's
contest 23-12.
INDIANA PLAYS USC in the Los Angeles
Coliseum, and because the Trojans were upset by
Florida last week, they should be pumped up in front
of the home crowd, which can-only mean trouble for
Indiana. For the Hoosiers to hand the Trojans their
second loss, they will need a complete team effort.
The Hoosier offense is led by quarterback Babe
Laufenberg and split end Duane Gunn. The defense,
which shut out Northwestern last week, 30-0, received
a fine performance from defensive tackle Mark
Smythe, who had three sacks.
UCLA, Michigan's next opponent, will be in
Madison, Wisconsin today to face the Badgers. The
Badgers will need a better offensive showing than
last week to beat the Bruins. UCLA, returning nine
"That is obviously a concern in the early
going," said White. "But we feel like we had
able back-ups last year that will, hopefully,
step in. We also brought in some outstanding
freshmen line prospects that could enter the
picture."
While the offensive line is a question mark, it
is solid on defense. Tackles Mark Butkus, Don
Thorp and Dan Gregus return as do ends Ken
Gillen and Terry Cole. The best of the
newcomers are ends Nick Epps, Mike Johnson
and Darryl Thompson along with tackle
Willard Goff.
AT LINEBACKER, Illinois must retool, as
all three starters from a year ago were NFL
draft picks. "The linebackers will lack a cer-

starters on offense, put 41 points on the scoreboard
last week against Long Beach State.
Northwestern will have a good chance to break
their losing streak today-and maybe its only real
chance-as their opponent at Dyche Stadium will be
Miami of Ohio. The Redskins are a contender for the
Mid-American Conference title. To break the streak,
the Wildcats will have to improve their rushing
game. Their rushing total for two games is -48 yards.
