'Cats look to end
Spqcial to the Daily
EVANSTON - The streak lives on for
the Northwestern Wildcats.
Not the consecutive-game losing
treak; Northwestern ended that at 34
this season when it beat Northern
Illinois, 31-6. Instead, the streak that
still follows the Wildcats is their 12
straight losses to Michigan.
THE LAST time Northwestern beat
the Wolverines was in 1965. But for the
first time in quite a few seasons,
Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler
is being taken seriously when he says
thatthe Wildcats can't be overlooked.
orthwestern's 31-21 victory over Min-
esota two weekends ago has insured
"Northwestern really played hard
and took something out of Minnesota,"
says Schembechler. 'They're not 'a
powerhouse, but they're good. They're
capable of beating anyone."
Leading the Wildcats (1-4 Big Ten, 2-5
overall) on offense is none other than a
freshman, quarterback Sandy Schwab,
Through seven games, Schwab has
ompleted 128 of his 234' pass attempts
for 1,473 yards and eight touchdowns.
"SANDY HAS a good arm, and if we
give him time he's pretty accurate,"
says Northwestern head coach Dennis
"The kid's a good quarterback," says
If Schwab has a problem, it is the 11
interceptions that he has thrown this
year. "Sandy is a freshman, which is
very difficult," says Green. "He has
way too many interceptions. But you
have to accept some of those things
with a freshman. Sometimes he's im-
patient. But he has poise and leads
the team well."
SO FAR THIS year, he has led the
Wildcats to 16.6 points per game, a vast
improvement over last season's
average of 7.4, when Northwestern was
shut out five times.
"They have a good offense," says
Schembechler. "They've been moving
and scoring on everybody."
The rushing game has certainly been
moving the ball better than was the
case a season Ago. Last year, the
squad's leading rusher was quarter-
back Kevin Villars (who has since been
moved to flanker because of a chronic
shoulder injury), who gained 98 yards
on 70 carries. this season, senior
tailback Ricky Edwards aready has
rushed for 462 yards on 107 carries.
THE NUMBERS for the Wildcats'
receivers are also up from a year ago,
when 20 receptions led the team. Junior
tight end Jon Harvey already has 20
catches and he only ranks third on the
club. Edwards has caught 26 passes
and junior split end Tood Jenkins tops
the team with 36.
The Northwestern offensive line is
anchored by tackle Chris Hinton, a con-
verted tight end who caught five passes
for 83 yards againt Michigan last year
According to Green, Hinton is "one of
the best I've coached."
,Such praise takes on added
significance when one considers that
Green coached National Football
League first-round draft choices Gor-
don King and Brian Holloway at Stan-
ford before taking the Northwestern
head coaching post.
"POTENTIALLY, Hinton could be
the best in the country," says Green.
Just as Northwestern has shown im-
provement on offense this year, it has
bettered its defensive performance,
too. After seven games, the Wildcats
have given up 30.3 points a game, an
immense improvement over last year's
figure of 45.9.
"We have made a vast improvement
on defense and that allows us to stay in
games, which wasn't the case last
year," says Green.
NORTHWESTERN'S top three
tacklers this season are inside
linebacker Jim Bobbitt, defensive tackle
Keith Cruise and outside linebacker
The Wildcat defense suffered a
tremendous loss in last week's 34-21 loss
to Purdue when senior inside
linebacker Rich Raffin tore knee
ligaments, putting him out for the
season. Raffin was Northwestern's
Most Valuable Player last year.
The only change in the Michigan star-
ting lineup is that freshman fullback
Eddie Garrett will replace fellow
freshman Dan Rice.

Even though Michigan sits on top of the Big Ten, with five
weeks remaining in the 1982 conference football schedule
there are still a half-dozen teams in-contention for the num-
ber one spot.
While no one has been mathematically eliminated from
title consideration, six teams (Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin,
Iowa, Ohio State and Indiana) with two or fewer losses have
the opportunity to finish on top or close to it,'since no Big Ten
team has ever won or shared the championship with three
WITH A championship so hotly contested, Big Ten football
will be something to watch this weekend. Happily, for those
not fortunate enough to be in Evanston watching Michigan
battle Northwestern, there will be a rare conference
television doubleheader this Saturday. CBS will broadcast
the Illinois-Wisconsin game from Madison starting at 12:00
EDT while ABC will telecast the Indiana-Ohio State contest
from Bloominton, air-time set for 2:30 EDT.
In the first game, Illinois will try to protect their number
two standing in the conference when it takes on third-place
With Tony Eason at the helm for the Illini, Randy Wright
leading the Badgers, this game promises to be a true aerial
show. Illinois is counting on its two leading pass intercepters,
Craig Swoop and Mike Heaven, number one and number four
in the league, respectively, to give them the edge.
IN THE OTHER televised game, Indiana looks to stay in
the race for the conference title as it hosts Ohio State. This
game is an interesting matchup between last week's AP of-
fensive "Player-of-the-Week," Mike Tomczack of Ohio State
Edwards and Jenkins
... Wildcat offensive threats
and both the AP's and the UPI's defensive "Player-of-the-
Week," Mark Sutor of Indiana. At his free safety position,
Sutor intercepted two passes, made four solo tackles and ran
in a two-point conversion as the holder on the point-after at-
tempt in last Saturday's game against Minnesota. Buckeye
quarterback Tomczack, who lost his starting role to Brent
Offenbecher the week before, completed 14 of 34 passes for
247 yards and a touchdown and ran the ball 11 times for 41
yards and another touchdown as he led Ohio State past
In other games today, the Hawkeyes of Iowa travel to
Minneapolis to take on the Golden Gophers of Minnesota. In
this game, Minnesota (3-3 overall) hopes to improve upon its
dismal 1-3 record in conference games. Statistics-wise Min-
nesota edges Iowa in almost every grid. The Hawkeyes
however, remain atop Minnesota with a 2-1 conference
FINALLY, amidst homecoming festivities on the MSU
campus, hapless Michigan State will seek that elusive initial
triumph of the season as the Spartans host the Boilermakers
of Purdue. With rumor that his job might be up for grabs
next year, this is one game that Spartan head coach Muddy
Waters wants, and wants badly.
Although MSU has dropped six straight games, it is not
quite as bad as its record indicates.-Four of the Spartan
losses have been by a total of 19 points. It would be a mistake,
especially for Purdue, to write the Spartans off.
The Boilermakers will look for help from the conference's
leading all-purpose runner, Mel Gray, to improve upon their
1-3 conference record and mathematically eliminate the
Spartans from title contention.

The only thing colder than the sub-zero tem-
perature and the freezing fans in Yost Ice Arena last
night was the Wolverine hockey squad. The team
stfered a 9-5 trouncing at the hands of the Fighting
Irish of Notre Dame.
Michigan's only chance to take the lead came in the
Same's first twenty seconds when Ted Speers failed
-put his first shot past Notre Dame goalie Bob Mc-
Namara. The rest was all downhill for the Wolverines
as the closest they came to the Irish was a second-
period, 3-3, tie that lasted only one minute.
"THERE WAS only one thing wrong with our play
arid that's that they beat us to the puck. That's all,"
said Michigan head coach John Giordano. "We've got
fogrteen new guys in the line-up and it shows. We'll
correct the mistakes and get better as we go along.
We've got talent but it just takes time to gel."
Notre Dame's Joe Bowie scored the game's first
al 3:12 into the first period on a power play as
ichigan's Tom Stiles spent two minutes in the
,penalty box for tripping. Notre Dame continued its
control as Kirt Bjork scored the team's second goal at
7:17 on a breakaway shot that he easily fired past

game at Yost Arena. The Fighting
Irish fired a total of 43 shots at Elliott.
The Wolverines came out of their stupor, though,
and broke into the scoring column as left wing Chris
Seychel made Michigan's first goal on a power play
after 8:51. Assists on the goal went to teammates
Brad Tippett and Speers.
NOTRE DAME scored the next goal, however, on a
Mike Metzler shot but Michigan came right back.
Mike Neff passed to Speers who fed the puck to Jim
McCauley for a goal fired over the shoulder of the
Notre Dame goalie. The period ended with Notre
Dame in front, 3-2.
The second period began with Michigan taking the
initiative, scoring the first goal after 41 seconds as
Seychel, assisted by McCauley and Goff, breezed a
shot past Notre Dame's McNamara.
Notre Dame made the next two goals on shots from
John Deasey and John Higgins, making the score

AFTER 4:35, though, Michigan's Todd Carlile
passed the puck to Speers, who slipped it to Seychel,
who in turn rifled it past McNamara from close out-
side the net. The play completed a hat trick for
Notre Dame made the next three goals of the
period, including a shorthanded goal by Mark
Doman. Elliott stopped Doman's shot but couldn't
control the puck and it trickled through his pads to
give Notre Dame its seventh goal. The period ended
with the Irish sweeping Michigan, 8-4.
Michigan's Tippett scored the Wolverines' fifth
goal 1:18 into the third period on a power play, with
assists going to Seychel and McCauley. Notre Dame's
last goal of the night came off the stick of Higgins,
completing his hat trick and resulting in the final
score of 9-5.
"When you win you're pleased," said Notre Dame
head coach Charles "Lefty" Smith. "Since'we're a
young club defensively and on a strange rink, I was
pleased with the win."
