1982 season in
UCLA Bruins have 9-1-1 mark.


. .

UCLA 41, Cal State Long
Beach 10
Bruins' quarterback Tom Ramsey completed 18 of 31
passes for 286 yards. Receiver JoJo Townsell hauled in four
touchdown passes of 48, 32, 18 and 22 yards. The four touch-
down receptions tied a Pac Ten single-game record.
UCLA 51, Wisconsin 26
Ramsey completed 17 of 24 passes for 260 yards. Midway
through the second quarter, Wisconsin trailed 24-0 and had
only managed four net yards on its five possessions.
UCLA 31, Michigan 27
Mchigan built a 21-0 lead in the first half, but the Bruins
came storming back on the golden arm of Ramsey. The
senior quarterback completed 22 of 37 passes for 311 yards
and two touchdowns. UCLA was far less effective on the
ground, as it only gained 41 yards on 44 attempts.
UCLA 34, Colorado 6
The highlight of this game came when Ramsey hooked up
with flanker Dokie Williams on a 50-yard touchdown strike.
Ramsey also scored on a 10-yard run. Freshman John Lee
booted a 41-yard field goal.
UCLA 24, Arizona 24
Arizona jumped out to a 14-7 lead in the first quarter only to
give up two touchdowns which gave UCLA a 21-14 advantage.
The Wildcats moved back on top, 24-21, when they booted a
field goal with 30 seconds left in the game. But the Bruins
weren't dead yet, and they drove 60 yards to set up a 36-yard
game-tying field goal by Lee.
UCLA 45, Washington State 17
UCLA again trailed early on, this time by a 17-14 count with

eight minutes to go in the third quarter. But Townsell then
scampered 53 yards on a double reverse to put the Bruins up,
21-17. UCLA then tacked on 24 straight points to turn a once-
close game into a rout.
UCLA 47, California 31
For the third straight week, UCLA had to come from
behind. The Bruins trailed 14-7 when Townsell scored on a 67-
yard pass. The score was tied at 31-31 in the third quarter, but
UCLA outscored the Golden Bears 16-0 in the fourth quarter.
UCLA 40, Oregon 12
The Bruins, pass dependent for most of the year, compiled
a season-high 217 yards on the ground. Lee tied a single-game
school record by kicking four field goals.
Washington 10, UCLA 7
UCLA fell behind, 10-0, with fumbles severely hindering its
effort. The Bruins cut the Huskies' lead to 10-7 when Townsell
took a Ramsey pass 39 yards for a touchdown. With 1:22 left
in the game, UCLA had a first down on the Washington 47-
yard line. Four plays only netted four yards, however, and
the Huskies took over the ball.
UCLA 38, Stanford 35
UCLA led 31-27 when Ramsey hit Cormic Carney with a 51-
yard pass to set up the quarterback's five-yard touchdown
run. Stanford then narrowed the score to 38-35 on a John
Elway touchdown pass to Vincent White. But the Cardinals
could not overtake the Bruins.
UCLA 20, USC 19
The Bruins' last regular-season game of the year was a
thriller. UCLA led 17-10 at the half and 20-10 in the third quar-
ter. But them, UCS made a valiant comeback attempt. A 22-
yard field goal made thescore 20-13, and with no time left on
the clock the Trojans scored on fourth down from one yard

Michigan 20,
Wisconsin 9
The Wolverines defeated the Badgers
to take their season opener and avenge
last year's embarrassing 21-14 loss in
Madison. Midway through the final
quarter, Michigan held a precarious 13-
9 lead, but Steve Smith squashed
Wisconsin's hopes for another upset as
he moved into the endzone from six
yards out. The junior helmsman had a
less productive aerial attack, however,
as he misfired two crucial intercep-
Notre Dame 23,
Michigan 17
The Irish cast a dark shadow over
the Wolverines' season, handing them a
heart-breaking loss in the first night
game ever played in Notre Dame
Stadium. Free safety Dave Duerson
snagged a key fourth-quarter intercep-
tion to preserve the Irish victory.
UCLA 31, Michigan 27
Michigan bulldozed to a 21-0 second-

uids from (
quarter lead over 12th-ranked UCLA
before the Bruins discovered the
Wolverine defense's inability to halt a
solid passing attack. QuarterbackTom
Ramsey lead his team down comeback
road, completing 22 of 37 pass attempts
for 311 yards and two touchdowns.
Michigan 24,
Indiana 10
After sinking in two consecutive non-
conference matchups, the Wolverines
smoothly sailed to their second Big Ten
victory, handily defeating the Hoosiers
by two touchdowns. Michigan place-
kicker Ali Haji-Sheikh nails a 50-yard
field goal.
Michigan 31,
Michigan State 17
Returning to its torm of years past,
Michigan whipped past the Spartans to
hand its intra-state rivals their fifth
consecutive loss of the season. Anthony
Carter caught five passes for 123 yards
and a touchdown and returned a punt 51
yards to set up another score while set-
ting three school and Big Ten records
and tying another.
Michigan 29, Iowa 7
Last year Iowa severly hampered
Michigan's Big Ten title aspirations,
and the Wolverines returned the favor
leveling the Iowa City boys, 29-7. The
win coupled with Illinois' 26-21 loss to
Ohio State, left the Wolverines as the,
uncontested Big Ten leader.

with an insurmountable 42-0 lead over
the Wildcats. Steve Smith played only
the first 30 minutes but managed to

Michigan 52,
Minnesota 14
The Wolverine offense piled up a mind-
boggling 566 yards to accumulate their
highest point total of the year. With
Illinois' 14-13 loss to Iowa, the
Wolverines now would have to lose two
of their remaining games to be denied a
Pasadena ticket.
Michigan 16,
Illinois 10
The Wolverine defense squashed a
last-minute Illini fourth-and-goal play
on the Michigan two-yard line to cap-
ture what has been called by some, the
team's most satisfying victory of the
Michigan 52,
Michigan clinched a Big Ten title and
a trip to the Rose Bowl a week early this
season with a 52-21 rout of Purdue. An-
thony Carter caught two touchdown
passes and scored on a two-point con-
version to up his career total to 344
points and break Tom Harmon's all-
time Michigan record of 337.

Memories. That's all Michigan fans will have of flanker Anthony Carter af-
ter this season's Rose Bowl. And here is a pretty good memory at that. It is
Carter's last regular season touchdown reception as a Wolverine. Purdue

defensive back Don Anderson tips the ball (above), but Carter ad
