By RON POLLACK
When Michigan and UCLA did battle
earlier this season, Bruins' quarter-
back Tom Ramsey mercilessly brought
the Wolverine defense to its knees.
The 6-0, 188-pound senior ravaged the
Michigan secondary to the tune of 311
yards and two touchdowns while com-
pleting 22 of 37 passes. It was his
precision passing, more so than
anything else, that allowed UCLA to
overcome a 21-0 deficit and triumph, 31-
27.
AND THE rest of the season went
much the same for Ramsey. He
finished the year ranked first nationally
in passing efficiency and was named
co-Pac Ten Player of the Year with
Stanford quarterback John Elway.
"I think it was a productive year for

me in terms of passing yardage," said
Ramsey who completed 191 of 311
passes for 2,824 yards, and 21 touch-
downs against only 11 interceptions.
"We accomplished a lot by stretching
defenses and keeping them off balance.
We try to move the ball as much as we
can and put points on the board. But
that's a universal goal. Fortunately, I
had skilled people to work with in the
passing game.
"We moved the ball all year. We've
had a good year offensively. I think
we've gained confidence throughout the
year.''
IT WAS A year in which Ramsey was
completely in control of opposing
defenses. Yet, when a Rose Bowl berth
was on the line, he was utterly helpless.
In UCLA's regular season finale, the

Bruins led hated USC, 20-13, when the
Trojans scored a touchdown in the
waning seconds. Not content to settle
for a tie, USC went for a two-point con-
-version and the win.
"I did a lot of praying and hoping that
-our defense could do the job on that
play," said Ramsey.
WHICH IS exactly what the Bruins'
defense did, sacking the USC quarter-
back after what seemed to be an eter-
nity of time for him to throw. But even
as the jubilant UCLA squad rushed onto
the field to celebrate its victory, the
Bruins looked like anything but con-
ference champions. For that to happen,
Washington had to lose to hapless
Washington State that day and Arizona
State had to lose to Arizona the
following week.

off of Michigan's late-season charge,
and Bo realized that his 8-3 Wolverines
will be underdogs to the 9-1-1 Bruins.
"This probably will be the first bowl
game we've played were we'll be a
decided underdog," said the- 14-year
Michigan head coach. "We won the Big
Ten and then lost to Ohio State, so this is
also the first Rose Bowl we've played
after losing to Ohio State."
AND THE loss to the Buckeyes is one
that Schembechler finds especially
hard to stomach.
"We gave that game away," said Bo.
"We set them up three times and turned
ourselves away. The fact remains, we
blew two scoring opportunities that
were golden. But if we got out and win
the Rose Bowl, it will be a heckuva
year."
If the Wolverines are to win the Rose
Bowl - Bo has won just one of six in his
14 years at Michigan - they must
eliminate the mistakes that cost them
the Ohio State game and get a solid per-
formance from quarterback Steve
Smith.
SENIOR tailback Lawrence Riks,

who led the team with 1,300 yards
rushing, and senior flanker Anthony
Carter, the team's top receiver with 38
catches, have both been solid, but
Smith has been inconsistent all year. In
Michigan's three losses to Notre Dame,
UCLA and Ohio State, Smith completed
just 38 of 86 passes with seven intercep-
tions and two touchdowns.
The Wolverine defense will have the
advantage of having already experien-
ced one of Ramsey's aerial assaults,
and it will have to do a better job of
stopping the Bruins' senior quarter-
back if the Wolverines are to give
Schembechler his second Rose Bowl
win and his third bowl win overall.
Senior All-Big Ten strong safety
Keith Bostic heads a Wolverine secon-
dary that allowed Ramsey 331 yards
passing in the game in September.
Senior flanker JoJo Townsell also broke
loose for seven receptions for 108 yards.
The Michigan defensive front shut
down the Bruin running attack, holding
UCLA to just 41 yards on the ground,
but the Wolverines will have to find a
way to shut down the Bruin air attack if
