Bob Harris is the cornerstone of the
Tiger defensive unit. The senior safety
intercepted five passes and had 93
tackles including seven for losses
totalling 25 yards. The leading tackler
on the team was linebacker Gregg
Carr, who had 125 tackles, 15 against
This matchup is the classic run-

Ohio State (8-3) vs.
The Brigham Young Cougars will be
making their annual December
pilgrimage from Provo to San Diego to
play hosts at the Holiday Bowl. This
year's opposition will be provided by
the Buckeyes of Ohio State, who are
making their first appearance against
the Western Athletic Conference
This year marks the fifth straight
time that the Cougars will be represen-
ting the WAC. The Buckeyes will be
making their 10th consecutive bowl ap-
pearance and their first ever in the
BRIGHAM YOUNG brings an 8-3
season mark (7-1 in the WAC) into the
December 17 contest, which was good
enough to give them their fifthstraight
league title. The last time BYU did not
win the conference was when Arizona
and Arizona State were still members.
As usual, the Cougars feature a high-
powered passing attack that has little
trouble putting points on the board.
Quarterbacking the Cougars this year
is junior Steve Young, who fits right in-
to the legacy left by the likes of Marc
Wilson, Gifford Nielsen, and Jim Mc-
On the season, yong has completed
230 out of 367 passes for an impressive
62.7 percentage. His total passing yards
for the campaign was 3,100 yards.
Young's primary receiver was Gordon
Hudson, who had 67 catches.
THE COUGAR'S inconsistent defense
is led by linebacker Todd Shell, who
lead the team with 61 tackles. BYU's
defense will have the challenge of con-
trolling Ohio State's powerful running
game, led by tailback Tim Spencer and
fullback Vaughn Broadnax.
The Buckeyes will bring an 8-3 season
mark into the game and a 7-1 Big Ten
slate. Ohio State is currently ranked
18th in the UPI poll. This is the first
meeting between the schools.

a year, are working on the familiarity
part, head coaches Bo Schembechler
and Terry Donahue are busy breeding
THERE HAVE been mutterings of
dislike between the two in the past, and
when they got together in Pasadena a
couple of weeks ago, they talked about
their allegedly rocky relationship.
"It hasn't been a smooth relation-
ship," said Donahue, in his seventh
year as head coach of the Bruins. "but it
probably isn't a decided animosity. I
don't think 'bitterness' would be the
proper word. I would say 'intense com-
Donahue's Bruins have met Schem-
bechler's Wolverines twice previous to
this year's Rose Bowl, and each time
there were incidents of disagreement
between the two. Before Michigan's 33-
14 victory over UCLA in last year's
Bluebonnet Bowl, Schembechler and
Donahue argued briefly over whether
or not the digital 25-second clock in the
Astrodome would be used. Bo
prevailed that time as the clock was
AFTER UCLA rallied from 21 points
down to defeat Michigan earlier this
season, 31-27, Donahue was quoted as
saying that he was "more enthusiastic
about the victory than the players are.
I really wanted to beat Bo."
Two weeks ago, Donahue attempted
to retract that statement. "At Ann Ar-
bor, I probably over-reacted and said
some things I shouldn't have," he said.
Schembechler also attempted to

Wisconsin (6-5) vs.
Kansas State (6-4-1)
This year's Independence Bowl mat-
ches two teams you wouldn't really ex-
pect to be in a bowl game-Wisconsin
and Kansas State. Wisconsin sports a 6-
5 record and has post-season experien-
ce from the Garden State Bowl last
year. Although the Badgers lost to Ten-
nessee, the boys from Madison should
be more sure of themselves this year.
Kansas State, on the other hand,
hasn't had any bowl experien-
ce . . ever. The Wildcats had their
bestBseason since 1970, finishing fourth
in the Big Eight with a record of 6-4-1,
and have been awarded with their first
ever bowl appearance.
THIS YEAR'S Kansas State team is a
dramatic turnaround from last year's
anemic 2-9 squad. The improvement
has been largely due to Wildcat head
coach Doug Dickey's decision to red-
shirt senior starters last year.
Red-shirting is not uncommon, but
red-shirting starters is. The result was
last year's dismal record, but also this
year's banner season. Kansas State of-
ficials are also quick to stress that it
was ultimately the players' decision to
The product of all this has been a
stingy defense. Kansas State ranks
eighth nationally against the pass and
28th overall in defense. Standouts on
defense, include second-team All-Big
Eight safety Jim Bob Morris, and
honorable mention defenseive end Vic
Wisconsin also boasts a tough defen-
se. Led by All-Americans Matt Vanden
Boom and Tim Krumrie, the Badgers
finished third in the Big Ten in total
Therefore, it looks like a real defen-
sive struggle between two less-than-
famous teams. On the other hand, fot-
ball junkies, it is the only game on
December 11th.(8:00 p.m. EST, Mizlou
TV Network) and who knows, these
could be the Orange Bowl participants
of the future.
