Special to the Daily
EVANSTON - When Northwestern head coach Dennis Green told th
week that he would primarily use a passing attack against Michigan, n
ted him to shoot for an NCAA record.
In the wake of Michigan's 49-14 domination, Wildcat quarterback Sa
rifled 71 passes to eclipse the NCAA mark of 69 established by Illinois'E
in 1980.
"I'VE NEVER thrown that much," said the freshman Schwab. "I ti

.Northwestern may have set an NCAA mark yesterday for most
during a 35 point loss. And, for a guy who claims he's not out there to 1
ds, Schwab's actions certainly contradict his intentions, as he was wh
sible for six of the Wildcats' seven hallmarks.
" NCAA most pass attempts in a game, 71.
" NCAA most completions by a freshman, 45
" NCAA most total offensive plays, 87.
" Big Ten most pass completions in a single game, 45.
" Northwestern most yards passing in a game, 436.
" Northwestern passing yardage for the season, 1,909.

end zone from one yard out for the

THE WILDCATS' Steve Tasker took

golly respon- honors on an 11-yard jaunt.
After Northwestern failed to get a
single first down after Ali Haji-Sheikh's
kickoff, Michigan again drove straight
down the field with the Wildcats' defen-
se offering little resistance. This time,
the Wolverines moved 86 yards and
Smith again capped the drive on a one-
yard run.

"I FELT GOOD. I felt good all
week," said Smith. "So we figured I
could run the ball."
With the score now 21-0 Smith gave
his legs a rest, using his arm to riddle
the hapless Northwestern defense.
With 3:20 left in the half, Smith dropped
back from his own 34 and hit flanker
Anthony Carter over the middle. Car-
ter then angled toward the sideline
where split end Vince Bean leveled
Northwestern cornerback Kenneth
Woods with a crushing block, giving
Carter nothing but clear sailing toward
the end zone. the touchdown reception
was the 35th of Carter's illustrious
college career, breaking the record for
sa 4 mm4

Michigan career touchdowns which he
had previously shared with Rick Leach.
A minute-and-a-half later, Carter ad-
ded to his record by beating double
coverage to pull in a 29-yard scoring st-
"I THINK he's a little more healthy,"
said Schembechler, noting that Carter
has been hampered by nagging injuries
all season. "He's running better."
Just seven seconds later, the
Wolverines' Mike Mallory fell on a
fumbled snap at the Wildcat 12. It only
took Smith two plays to get the
Wolverines into the end zone on a 12-
yard pass to tight end Craig Dunaway,
making the score 42-0.

The second half didn't begin any bet-
ter than the first half ended for North-
western, either. Three minutes into the
third quarter, Schwab threw a sideline
pass that was picked off by Bostic - his
second of the afternoon - who raced
down the sideline for a 54-yard toucl$
down return.
"I always wanted to score a touch-
down and finally it happened," said
Bostic. "When I got into the open I kind
of showboated. I waved because I knew
I was gone. But that's not my kind of.
After that, Schembechler started
substituting freely and Northwestern
was able to score on one-yard runs by
Schwab and halfback Ricky Edwards.

In addition, tight end Jon Harvey

to erase the Big Ten mark of 15 recep-

the 6-3, 220-pound junior almost did not
play in the game.
"Harvey played the most courageous
football game I've ever seen," said
Green after the game. "He's had the

perature has been around 102. He even
wore his sweats to bed last night in or-

Although Green said he was happy
with his team's performance, he was
disappointed with the 49-14 outcome.
"They (the Wolverines) scored the
first six times they had the ball," he
said. "I think we ran into every good
football team. We had a chance on the
first run, but couldn't produce. When
we're ready to beat a team like
Michigan, we'll beat them. We'll train

Michigan is number one in the Big Ten
and expected to go all the way - they
are a very physical team."

Off the Record


MADISON (AP) - Mike Bass kicked a 46-
yard field goal on the game's final play, cap-
ping a 479-yard passing performance by
Illinois' Tony Eason as the Illini rallied for a
wild 29-28 victory over Wisconsin in Big Ten
college football yesterday.
Wisconsin had taken a 28-26 lead with 52
seconds left when wide receiver Al Toon
threw .a 40-yard touchdown pass to tight end
Jeff Nault.
Wisconsin quarterback Randy Wright
threw a lateral to Toon, who was set up in the
left flat. Wright bounced the bll into the turf,
apparently deceiving the Illini into thinking
the play was dead. Toon scooped up the ball
and lofted his touchdown pass to Nault, who
was behind the coverage at about the 5-yard
But the Illini struck back to march 51 yards
in five plays to set up the field goal by Bass,
whose kick after a timeout stunned a crowd of
78,406 at Camp Randall and a regional
television audience.

Wolverine ice

If the Notre Dame hockey team had been
able to cancel the second period of last
night's game against Michigan, it would
have swept the two-game series with the
Wolverines., But instead, Michigan ex-
ploded for three second-period goals, and
held on for a 5-4 win in front of 4,302 Yost Ice
Arena fans.
Goals by Ted Speers, Chris Seychel and
Joe Milburn brought the icers back from a 2-
1 first period deficit, and Notre Dame was
never able to fully recover. Seychel later

scored the game-winner with 4:23 left in the
third period, and superb goaltending by
sophomore Mark Chiamp closed the door as
Michigan gained its first conference victory
of the season.
"THAT SECOND period killed us,"Notre
Dame coach Charles "Lefty" Smith said.
"I'm very pleased that we got five out of six
good periods on the road, and we came back
in the third period, but a sweep would have
been a big boost to the team."
Notre Dame jumped out to a 1-0 lead just
3:26 into the game when Steve Hianchi's
shot rebounded to John DeVoe, who lifted it

past a sprawling Chiamp for the goal.
Michigan tied the score just two minutes
later. Tom Stiles dug the puck out of the
Notre Dame end, and passed to freshman
Todd Carlile. Notre Dame goalie Bob Mac-
Namara stopped Carlile's slapshot, but
could not find the loose puck, and the
Wolverines' Don Krussman tipped it in to tie
the game.
THE FIGHTING Irish closed the first
period scoring when Mike Metzler intercep-
ted a Steve Yoxheimer pass at the Michigan
blue line, and fed sophomore John Deasey
for the easy goal, and a 2-1 lead.
After Michigan's second period flurry put
the icers in front 4-2, the two teams dug in
for a third period showdown, in which each
squad was penalized three times, and both
goalies made spectacular saves to keep the
game close.
The Irish made it 4-3 just 45 seconds into
the final stanza, with Carlile and Notre
Dame's Kirt Bjork in the penalty box.
Freshman defenseman Mark Benning stole
the puck and fed it to Bob Thebeau, who

Sometime between Michigan's seventh touchdown
and Northwestern's first, that three-on-three sandlot
game being played behind Dyche Stadium's north end
zone scoreboard was beginning to look pretty darn in-
There was this one red-haired kid with a dark blue
sweater who was almost unstoppable on a down-and-
out to the right corner. And the quarterback, a tall,
gangly kid with a red-hooded sweatshirt, wasn't all bad
either, though he couldn't compare to the Wildcat's
Sandy Schwab, who was flinging the ball around like it
was a tainted Tylenol.
Seriously though, Michigan's 49-14 victory over Nor-
thwestern yesterday, was about as exciting as a
weekend in Iowa. I mean, it got so bad the press box
crew started passing out pillows midway through the
third quarter.
Northwestern came into the game with a 2-5 record-
which is a championship caliber mark here in Evan-
ston-and had everybody convinced that those 69-0
slaughters and 34-game losing streaks were things of
the past: Well, if yesterday's first half was any in-
dication, the 'Cats haven't come as far as people think
they have.
The only difference between yesterday's debacle and
those from past years is that yesterday's game was a
lot more boring. Michigan led 42-0 at the half, and had
Bo Schembechler left the first-stringers in for the
second half, they'd still be tabulating the point total.
"We had a choice of going after them and running it
up in the second half or not taking any chances," said
Bo, "and we played it conservative.
"The only way to get anything out of this kind of game
is to go out and run i t up-which I should have done.
Then I wouldn't have to answer questions like 'what
happened in the second half?'
Well, what did happen in the second half? I know the
red-haired kid made a nice diving catch on the right
sidelines but I have no idea what the heck happened to
the Wolverine backups. They played like they were
ready to doze off themselves.
"No team should come out and do that against us,"
said defensive back Rich Hewlett, meaning no fresh-
man quarterback should complete 45 of 71 passes for
436 yards against the Michigan defense. "It's a little
frustrating, we should have shut them out. Our second
defense should be able to come in there and keep things
But it didn't and Schembechler didn't sound pleased
when asked if such a game was good for the reserve-
"If they don't play better than they did, no," he
While Schwab was passing fancy, Michigan's An-
thony Carter was doing some fancy catching, grabbing
two scoring passes and in the process becoming the
Wolverines all-time touchdown leader.
Carter also got into a bit of a shouting match with
Northwestern cornerback Kenny Watkins, but the
senior flanker ended all talk with a very appropriate
comeback. "I just tell them to look at the scoreboard,"
Carter said.
And on the scoreboard was more testimony to the
Wolverines' annual late season charge for the title

found Mark Doman alone in front of the net
for a backhanded goal over the spread-
eagled Chiamp.
MacNAMARA AND Chiamp traded saves
until the 15:37 mark. Michigan was wasting
away a power play opportunity, when Brad
Tippettworked the puck to defenseman Pat.
Goff, who quickly slid the puck to Chris
Seychel in the slot. Seychel stuffed his own
rebound past a sprawling MacNamara, and
the Wolverines led 5-3.
From then on the game was all Notre
Dame, as the Fighting Irish struggled to
come back. Steve Bianchi tipped in a Bjork
power-play slapshot at 18:24, but Chiamp
held back a final Notre Dame flurry, rob-
bing Mark Benning and Bjork on point-
blank shorts in the final seconds to preserve
the win.
"I had faith, and I wasn't giving up," said
Chiamp, who was voted the game's second
star. "We took it to them in the second
period, and that gave me a good rest. I knew
it wasn't going in at the end."
