Hus kiet
By KATIE BLACKWELL
It is time to prove that knocking off
the nation's number one team was no
fluke. For the Michigan Wolverines,
this Saturday is going to be a tough one.
Today is their chance to show the skep-
tics that last week's win resulted from
more than just a lackluster performan-
ce by Miami quarterback Bernie
Kosar. But the team coming to town
could change the script of the
Wolverines' newly televised show.
The Washington Huskies are fresh
from a convincing 26-0 victory over a
not-so-bad Northwestern squad. As the
Wolverines did to Kosar and Co., the
Huskies last week forced the Wildcats
to cough up the ball seven times, in-
cluding four interceptions.
INSIDE LINEBACKER Tim Meam-
ber is a sure threat to Michigan quar-
terback Jim Harbaugh. The 6-3, 221
pounder came up with three steals from
Northwestern quarterback Sandy Sch-
wab last week in Seattle. But more im-
portantly, his pick-offs set up a touch-
down and a pair of field goals for the
Huskies.
Wolverine outside linebacker Rodney
Lyles enjoyed a similar performance
last Saturday. Lyles was instrumental
in stopping the Miami air-attack, nab-
bing three interceptions of his own. He
is sure to be ready for another tough
game when the Huskies take the field.
"They're a good team," he said mat-

D

to dog 'M'

ter-of-factly. "Maybe stronger than the
Miami team we just played."
BUT ONE thing may be easier on
Lyles and friends this week.
Washington is working with an inex-
perienced quarterback in Hugh Millen.
The former Ann Arborite took over the
reins of the Huskies' offensive sled
from last year's Pac-10offensive player
of the year - Steve Pelleur. Graduating
with Pelluer were his 67.2 percent
passing efficency, 2,212 passing yards
and 11 touchdowns he compiled in 1984
Millen is still on trial after a weak
performance in Seattle. He managed to
connect on only 11 of his 23 passing at-
tempts for just 103 yards.
It seems likely that 10-year head
coach Don James will try to establish a
ground game against the Wolverines.
And the Michigan defense is going to be
hard pressed to put a stop to the likes of
Jacque Robinson and Ron "Cookie"
Jackson. The senior duo has racked-up
impressive yardage in the past three
years. Robinson is seventh on
Washington's all-time,rushing list with
1,399 yards. and Jackson follows with
1,037 career yards.
DEFENSIVELY, the Huskies will put
pressure on Harbaugh. Specifically,
tackle Ron Holmes at 6-4, 255 should be
a headache to Michigan's new helm-
sman. Holmes, a senior, had 106 tackles
last season and has led the team in
quarterback sacks for the past two
years.
"Washington is a team a lot like
ours," Bo Schembechler said earlier
this week. "They're defense is outstan-
ding. Defense is probably where they're
strongest now."
Aside from Meamber, the Huskies

have five other letterman to help.
strengthen their positions. Senior Joe
Krakoski and junior Joe Kelly com-
pliment Meamber at the inside linebac-
ker slot.
THE SECONDARY is the other
defensive strength for Washington.
Both starting cornerbacks, Vesteb
Jackson and J.C. Pearson return from
last season.
Last year, the Wolverines fell prey to
the Huskies in a last minute hear-
tbreaker, 25-24. But unlike last year s
contest, marked by Pelluer's 15
straight fourth-quarter completions in
the Huskies final scoring drive, this
year's action should resemble a typical
Big Ten game - rung run, run.
Michigan's backfield sustained no
major injuries last week. Add to that
junior fullback Eddie Garrett, who
missed the Miami game with an injured
knee but may see action today, and the
Wolverines come out with a strong run
ning game.
MICHIGAN'S home field advantage
may also be a big factor because the
Huskies will be playing before the
largest crowd they see in regular
season action. The crowd at last
season's duel in Seattle, the sixth"
largest crowd in Husky Stadium history,
was just 60,638. But Holmes said
he is not intimidated.
"You gotta look at it like
you're playing anywhere else," said,
Holmes. "But if you don't give them too.
much to cheer about then you can con-.
trol the crowd. And that's what you've
gotta shoot for."

Around the Big Ten

otre Dame at
MICHIGAN ST.
1:00 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: Notre Dame is
trying to bounce back from a surprising
setback at the hands of Purdue. The
Irish must cut down on last week's five
turnovers and numerous penalties.
Meanwhile, the Spartans survived a
care from Colorado last week, 24-21, as
SU's sophomore quarterback Dave
Yarema proved his throwing shoulder
is healed by throwing for two touch-
downs.
MINNESOTA at
Nebraska
2' 30 p.m. EDT.
WHAT TO WATCH: The only question
here is whether Nebraska, the nation's
ptop-ranked team, will be able to break
the century mark in points. Last year
the Cornhuskers routed Minnesota 84-
-.13. Although Minnesota gave new
Coach Lou Holtz a victory last week
-against Rice, the win was only the
econd in the last twenty games for the
Golden Gophers.
Kentucky at INDIANA
1:00 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: Kentucky is begin-
ning to pose itself as a threat again in
the Southeastern Conference in Coach
Jerry Claiborne's third season. Last
year the Wildcats went to their first
bowl game in seven years. This year,
they started by thrashing Kent State as
running back George Adams rumbled
for three touchdowns. Bill Mallory, In-
diana's third head coach in three years,
picked up where the others left off with
an opening loss to Duke,-31-24.
IILLINOIS at Stanford
3:50 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: For two con-
secutive weeks the Fighting Illini have
had trouble controlling opposition
but in both cases have walked away vic-
tors. Last week the Illini held on to a 30-
24 triumph over Missouri as fullback
Thomas Rooks snagged what proved to
be the winning touchdown. On the other
line of scrimmage, Stanford absorbed a
9-7 opening loss to the Oklahoma
Sooners.
WISCONSIN at
Missouri
12:34 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: A tough opening
loss to Illinois shouldn't dim the Tigers'
hopes. Missouri returns seven starters
from last year's twelfth-ranked defen-

se. Missouri also has two of the Big
Eight's top returning quarterbacks, one
of whom scored on a 50-yard run last
week. Wisconsin counters with an of-
fense returning ten starters from last
year's squad.
Syracuse at
NORTH WESTERN
2:30 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: Syracuse racked
up an impressive 23-7 victory over
Maryland to continue last year's win-
ning ways. The Orangemen finished
with a flourish in 1983 by sweeping their
last three games, including wins over
Boston College and West Virginia.
Featured in that stretch run was a
strong defense that last Week forced
four Maryland turnovers. North-
western's seven turnovers in last
week's 26-0 pasting by the Washington
Huskies put the Wildcats into a familiar
pattern.
Miami, Fla. at PURDUE
1:30 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: Both teams
come into the game after upsets -
Purdue with a shocking 23-21 victory
over highly ranked Notre Dame and the
Hurricanes victim of a Michigan storm.
Look for Miami's quarterback Bernie
Kosar to try to exploit the short passing
game against an inexperienced Purdue
linebacking corp. For Purdue to win
senior quarterback Jim Everett, who
passed for 255 yards last week, must
have another stellar performance
Washington St. at
OHIO STATE
3:40 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: The Buckeyes
opened the season sluggishly against
Oregon State but still managed to grind
out a victory, 22-14, Heisman trophy
candidate Keith Byars pounded his
way for 182 yards and two touchdowns.
If Washington State, 1-1, can take ad-
vantage of Ohio State's inexperienced
defense, the Buckeyes,with or without
injured QB Mike Tomczak, may have
their hands full.
Penn State at IOWA
2:05 p.m. EDT
WHAT TO WATCH: Last season's
Iowa-Penn State game turned out to be
a barnburner in which Iowa cooked the
Nittany Lions, 42-34. This year's contest
between the fifth-ranked Hawkeyes and
twelfth-ranked Nittany Lions could
prove to be a defensive struggle. Iowa
returns all eleven starters from a
defense that gave up only two touch-
downs over the final six games last
season

l1Iuncie funks drug test

MIAMI (AP) - Commissioner Pete
Rozelle has ordered running back
Chuck Muncie to undergo a complete
drug evaluation and barred the running
back from playing in the National
Football League "until successful com-
pletion of any prescribed treatment."
The league took the action following
Muncie's short stay at the Miami
Dolphins' training camp yesterday
when team officials said he failed a

urine test.
"We just got late word from the doc-
tor's office that Muncie failed the
physical," Coach Don Shula said during
an impromptu news conference. Shula
said Muncie passed the orthopedic half
of the physical, but failed the urine test.
Muncie told reporters that traces of
THC, the active ingredient in
marijuana, were discovered, though
Shula refused to confirm or deny that.
