Michigan began to drive for the first
time early in the second stanza as
Smith hit flanker Anthony Carter three
times for 34 yards and moved the ball to

Smith threw the first of three Michigan
interceptions, as co-player of the game
Rogers picked off a deflected pass in-

Rogers leveled on Smith the next time
the Wolverines had the ball would prove
to be the junior safety's most
significant contribution to the game.

"I LAID a real good solid hit on him
but I didn't think he wouldn't return,"
said Rogers, who has a reputation as
one of the hardest hitters in the game.
"I'm real sorry he went out but that's
part of the game."
"It was a super hit. I've been hit like
that before, but that ranks with the top
ones," said Smith after the game, his
right arm in a sling. "I was hoping to go
back in the game in the second half. I
came in the locker room at halftime
and tried to loosen the arm up but it
wouldn't come a third of the way up."

By RON POLLACK
For the past two seasons, Michigan
quarterback Steve Smith has riddled
opposing defenses with his execution of
the option play. In this year's Rose
Bowl, the defense struck back.
With 6:42 remaining in the second
quarter and UCLA leading, 7-0, Smith
scooted around end on the option.
Bruins' free safety Don Rogers moved
in for the kill and delivered a bone-
crushing, teeth-rattling, shoulder-
separating hit.
SMITH WAS taken out of the game,.
never to return, and had an ice pack
administered to his wounded throwing
shoulder. With slightly more than two
minutes remaining in the half he was
taken to the lockerroom. When he came

back out in the second half he was
without shoulder pads and uniform, op-
ting for street clothes instead.
"It's difficult to judge one hit from
another in terms of how much they
hurt," said Smith after the game, his
arm hanging limply in a sling. "But this
was definitely a hard one. It wasn't
cheap or anything. It was a good clean
hit."
"It felt good to me to get a good solid
hit on him," said Rogers who recorded
11 tackles and shared MVP honors with
UCLA quarterback Tom Ramsey. "I
didn't think it would knock him out of
the game. I just wanted him to know I
was out there."
WITH SMITH knocked out of the
game, inexperienced junior Dave Hall

array of rollouts and options with him.
And though backup quarterback Dave
Hall, who completed 13 of 24 passes for
155 yards, performed admirably, he
didn't have the experience or running
ability to pull it out.
"YOU KNOW, Dave Hall has never
played," said Schembechler, "and I
think, given the situation, he did a good
job. When you pull a kid off the bench
and tell him to go out and win the Rose
Bowl, it's tough."
When Smith left the game, the
Wolverines also lost some of the effec-
tiveness of All-America flanker Carter.1
'Al'from
took over the signal-calling duties. Hall,
a drop-back passer with limited
mobility, completed 13 of -24 passes for
155 yards and two touchdowns, but
Smith's lightening speed was sorely
missed.
"Smith's being out did help because it
took away the option," said Rogers.
Schembechler concurred.
"WE WERE out of the option game
and bootlegs," said the Wolverines'
head coach. "Losing your quarterback
is not one of the things you want to do in
a big game. Smith has run our offense
for two years and you can't replace
that. But Hall did a good job."
And with the option no longer a
threat, the Bruins' defense had far less
to worry about.
"Michigan. plays a style of offense
that is for the most part very predic-
table," said UCLA head coach Terry
Donahue. "The key is controlling the
option. If you can do that, the rest is
regular football. And that familiarity
allows the defense to recognize and
react much more quickly.",
WITH SMITH put out of commission,{
the Wolverines' offensive reins were
taken over by Hall who had only attem-
pted 14 passes all season. hs
"You know, Dave Hall has only'
played when we were up by 30 or 40
points," said Schembechler. "And you
yank the kid off the bench and tell him1

The slender senior caught five passes
on the day but just one after Smith was
injured.
Said Carter: "It hurts to lose your
quarterback but Dave did a good job. I
didn't play my best game but I felt he
should have come to me a little more."
UCLA WENT up 10-0 late in the first
half when John Lee nailed a 39-yard
field goal. The drive was set up when
Carter fumbled a Bruin punt and UCLA
recovered on the Michigan 47.
The Wolverines finally broke the ice
early in the third quarter, relying
heavily on the running of tailback
options
to win the Rose Bowl. That's tough. But
under the circumstances I think he
played well."
"I played all right, but I did make
some key mistakes," said Hall.
THE MOST damaging of which oc-
cured in the fourth quarter when
Michigan had the ball at its own two-
yard line. On second down, Hall drop-
ped back to pass and spotted flanker
Anthony Carter slanting over the mid-
dle. So too did Bruins' linebacker Blan-
chard Montgomery who stepped in
front of Carter, intercepted the ball at
the 11-yard line and rambled into the
endzone to boost UCLA's lead to 24-7.
"When he threw it, I wondered if I
could jump high enough to get it," said
Montgomery. "I did. Then I wanted to
get in the endzone. And I did."
"That was definitely the turning point
of the game," said the Bruins' Rogers.
"The quarterback didn't see (Mon-
tgomery) come over. That was the key
play. "
"I just didn't see him," said Hall. "I
saw the safety, but I didn't look far
enough to see the linebacker."
"That interception I don't fault him
on," 'said Schembechler. "On that one,
we shouldn't have put that kid in there
to read that defense. He knows what to
do, but it's a problem because that's not
the team we practiced with."

Lawrence Ricks to drive 45 yards in 10
plays, with just two of them passing
plays. The touchdown came on a one-
yard pass from Hall to freshman Eddie
Garrett on fourth down. Ali Haji-
Sheikh's conversion made it 10-7.
"When we closed it to three, I thought
we were in there," said Schembechler.
"I thought if our defense would hang
tough, we could win it."
BUT THE defense didn't hang tough,
and Ramsey directed a brilliant 80-yard
drive, capped by a nine-yard touch-
down scamper by tailback Danny An-
drews. Lee's conversion made it 17-7
and effectively took the wind out of the
Wolverine sails.
"It was one of the biggest drives
we've ever,-had," said 'Ramsey, who
finished with 18 completions in 25 at-

tempts for 162 yards. "We needed
something big and that drive took up1
lot of time."
The Wolverine defense stopped Brujh
running back Kevin Nelson on fourth-
and-goal from the one on the next
possession, but UCLA linebacker Blan-
chard Montgomery intercepted Halle
next pass and returned it 11 yards for
the touchdown that put the game out dt
reach.
Michigan scored its final touchdown
on a four-yard pass to freshman Dan
Rice on fourth down to make the final
outcome respectable, if predictablk
Michigan has now failed to win the final
game of its season 12 out of the past 1
years and finishes the season at
which equals its worst mark ever under
Schembechler.
