Orange
L~ Bowl
Miami, January 2

Miami (Fla.) 10-1 will have the home
field advantage when it takes on top-
ranked Nebraska (12-0) on January 2 in
the 50th Annual Orange Bowl. That will
probably be the only advantage the
fourth-ranked Hurricanes will have
over the Cornhuskers.
Nebraska coach Tom Osborne has
put together one of the most impressive
offenses in the history of college foot-
ball, which includes three potential All-
Americans and has racked up 624 points
and 6561 yards in 12 games, an average
of 52 points and 546.7 yards per games
SENIOR RUNNINGBACK and
Heisman Trophy winner Mike
Rozier leads the Nebraska offense and
has simply dominated all opponents.
This season, the 5-11 210-pound Rozier
became only the second rusher in
NCAA history to gain 2000 yards,
picking up 2148 on 275 carries for a 7.8-
yard average. He also rushed for an
NCAA record 29 touchdowns and had
four 200-yard games.
Other likely All-Americans are
wingback Irving Fryar, who has caught
40 passes for 780 yards and rushed 23
times for another 318 yards; and 6-3,
275-pound guard Dean Steinkuhler, the
leading candidate for the Outland
Trophy.
Finally, the Huskers have quarter-
back Turner Gill, a senior who has hit
on 94 of 170 passes for 1516 yards and 14
touchdowns and rushed for 531 yards
and 11 touchdowns.
Across the line from. the Nebraska of-
fense will be a tough Hurricane defense
which ranks fourth in the country,
allowing only 9.6 points and 259.4 yards
per game. Anchoring the Miami defen-
se are senior linebackers Jay Brophy
and Ken Sisk, who have combined for
256 tackles, and defensive back Ken
Calhoun, who has picked off five passes
for the season.
-JOE EWING
Rose
Bowl
Pasadena, Jan. 2
So the fighting Illini finally get to go
to the Rose Bowl, - their big moment
in the sun - and they have to play a
weak Pac Ten patsy, right? Wrong!
Contrary to popular opinion ( which is
almost always wrong), UCLA is a tough,

school. So what if they are 674-1. Three
of the losses were to non-conference op-
ponents (Georgia, Nebraska, and
Brigham Young) and the Bulldogs and
Cornhuskers are both badass teams,
with BYU being no slouch.
NOT ONLY that, but they had a tough
conference schedule. They' beat
Washington 27-24 and Washington St.
24-14 ( I wonder how Michigan would do
against teams like that?)
To top it off, UCLA is playing on its
home field, and is in its second straight
Rose Bowl, their ninth overall.
If you contrast this to Illinois, which
freaked out in the Liberty Bowl last
year when Tony Eason got hurt, losing
21-15 to Alabama, you may not like
what you see. Before that, the Illini
hadn't gone to post season play since
the 1964 Rose Bowl.
LAST, BUT certainly not least,
Illinois won every "big" game this year
at home (big games being Iowa; OSU,
and Michigan). Their one tough road
game was against Missouri, and they
lost 28-18.
So I'm going to pick UCLA to win,
right Wrong! I know, I know, I'm com-
pletely contradicting myself. But
Illinois beat Michigan, which makes
them damn good, (how's that for logic),
plus it is the first team ever to go
through the entire Big Ten without a
loss (recall that up until a few years ago
teams didn't play the entire conferen-
ce). This was also a banner year for Big
Ten football, so the Fighting Illini are
battle tested and ready to squeak out a
14-13 victory in this years Rose Bowl.
This prediction will self-destruct
January 2nd.
- STEVE HUNTER
Cotton
Bowl
Dallas, Jan. 2
CBS will pay 3.5 million dollars to
televise the 1983 Cotton Bowl from
Dallas Texas on January 2nd. This
year's game pits the Georgia Bulldogs,
9-1-1 against the Southwestern Con-
ference champion Texas Longhorns,11-
0-0.
Defense is the forte of both 1983 par-
ticipants. Coach Fred Akers and his
Longhorns led the country on defense,
allowing only 104 points. Texas boasts
two All-American defensive backs. Jeff
Leiding (93 tackles) and safety Gerry
Gray (116 tackles). But the Bulldogs
also are bullish. When they don't have
the football. Rover safety Terry Hoag
finished 5th in the Heisman voting,
while defensive back Knox Culpepper
set a Georgia record with 166 tackles.
THIS WILL be the 15th bowl in 20
seasons for Georgia coach Vince

Dooley, but to win his offense will have
to be sharp. The Bulldogs will start
quarterback John Lastinger (796 yards,
6 touchdowns) and run with backs Kieth
Montgomery (519 yards, 7 touch-'
downs), and Barry Young (502 yards, 4
touchdowns). Lastinger's favorite
target has been Herman Archie, who
had 31 receptions for 355 yards.
Texas offensive play this year has
been very much of a team effort. 14 dif-
ferent backs were given the ball from 3
different quarterbacks. Junior quar-
terback Rob Moerschell (871 yards, 9
touchdowns) should get the start. The
offensive line is led by All-American
Doug Dawson and guard Mike Reuther.
Look for Texas to remain undefeated.
-RICH WIED:IS
Fiesta
Bowl
Tempe, Jan. 2
The streak is over. After seven straight;
years and seven different bowl games,
Ohio State finally got a repeat in-
vitation.
Starting in '76 the Buckeyes appeared
in the Orange, Sugar, Gator, Rose,
Fiesta/ Liberty, and Holiday Bowls.
But OSU failed to extend its amazing
streak by bypassing the Florida Citrus
Bowl and grabbing a spot on January 2
in the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Ariz.
THE BUCKEYES should sport no
major changes from the squad that ap-
peared in Michigan Stadium. Junior
Mike Tomczak will again be behind
center and he will hand the ball to the
Big Ten's leading rusher Keith Byars
and throw it to flanker Cedric Anderson
and tight end John Frank.
Pittsburgh (8-2-1), had a very tough
schedule this season. Pitt defeated
Notre Dame, Florida State, and Ten-
nessee this year and tied arch-rival
Penn State 24-24 in its season finale.
The losses were to Maryland and West
Virginia.
Senior Joe McCall led the Panther of-
fense with 846 yards rushing and
fullbacks Marlon McIntyre and Marc
Bailey added 413 and 441 yards respec-
tively. The Pitt quarterback is
sophomore John Congemi, who took
over the chores from pre-season starter
John Cummings after Cummings broke
his collarbone in game one.
The Panthers' third trip to the Fiesta
Bowl is in a game that could be called
the "Prestige Bowl" since higher
ranked teams like SMU and Iowa were
passed over for schools that could at-
tract a better television audience. So
tune in the day after New Year's to see
the Scarlet and Gray battle Pittsburgh
for the first time since 1954, and don't
let the Fiesta Bowl Committee down.
-MIKE MCGRAW

junkie-offering a classic confrontation
between a high-powered offense and a
top-notch defense.
Powered by the nation's third best of-
fense (488 ypg, 38.6 ppg), the Hawkeyes
make offense their best defense. Coach
Hayden Fry respects Florida's
agressive defense, but feels that his
Hawkeyes shouldn't have any trouble
scoring on the Gators.
INDEED, THE Hawkeyes have a two
pronged attack with the nation's second
rated quarterback Chuckie Long and
dynamic duo Owen Gill and Eddie
Phillips in the backfield.
While Iowa's defense is not great, it
has improved dramatically in the
season's closing weeks. The defense is
anchored by All-Big Ten strong safety
Mike Stoops, and middle linebacker
Larry Station who Bo Schembechler
describes as "marvelous."
In contrast to the Hawkeyes, the'
Gators' game is defense, allowing op-
pents an average of 13.6 ppg. All-
America linebacker Wilber Marshal
leads the SEC in tackles.
QUARTERBACK Wayne Peace leads
the Gators into their fourth straight
bowl appearance. Peace's favorite
target is receiver Dwayne Dixon who
can really fly.
For Iowa to win Long must establish
both the running and passing game and
avoid the interceptions which have
plagued him late in the season.
Predicted score: Iowa 28, Florida 24.

Bluebonnet
Bowl

TEAM

Auburn 10 Game Statistics
(does not include Alabama game)

,Houston, Dec. 31
Those who stick around on New
Year's Eve to watch the Bluebonnet
Bowl will see the Oklahoma State
Cowboys face the unenviable task of
containing Bayler's prodigous offense.
The Bears' have a balanced attack
averaging 409.5 ypg. All SWC running
back Alfred Anderson (104.6 ypg)
spearheads the ground game. Baylor
also has a game breaker in All America
wide receiver Gerald McNeil. The 5-7
speedster has scored five game-
winning touchdowns this season, and is
sixth in the nation with a whopping 1034
yards receiving.
WITH THE nation's leading rusher
Ernest Anderson returning for his
senior year, Cowboy hopes for a Big
Eight title were riding high.
As it turned out, Anderson, plagued
by a recurring knee injury, has carried
only 17 times this season. Stepping in
for Anderson, backs Ken Zachary and
Shawn Jones lead a run-oriented.
Cowboy offense which averages A83.9
ypg-
The key to the Cowboy's success this
season has been a fierce run defense
that gave the option-oriented offenses
of Nebraska and Oklahoma fits.
A Cowboy victory will depend on
whether their secondary can corral
Baylor's receivers McNeil and Davis
who burned Texas' nation leading
defense for three touchdowns and had
two others called back.
Predicted score: Baylor 31, OSU 24.
