The Michigan Daily - Friday, Dece
MICHIGAN 22, MIAMI (FLA) 14 - The amazing Wolverine defense intercepts
cover-boy Bernie Kosar six times and Michigan stuns the number-one ranked
defending national champs. Fullback Bob Perryman scores three touchdowns as
Michigan vaults to number two in the UPI poll.
WASHINGTON 20, MICHIGAN 11- Bob Bergeron's 52-yard field goal is the only
Blue highlight in this one. The Husky defense shuts the Wolverines down cold.
MICHIGAN 20, WISCONSIN 14 - The Badgers dominate the game, but six fum-
bles give the Wolverines the victory. Wisconsin's Larry Emery gains 185 yards on
MICHIGAN 14, INDIANA 6 - The Wolverines drive up and down the field all
day, but can only stick it in the endzone twice. Moral victory for the Hoosiers.
MICHIGAN STATE 19, MICHIGAN 7 - The Wolverines were poised to surge in-
to the lead when Jim Harbaugh broke his arm and the offense did nothing for the
rest of the game.
MICHIGAN 31, NORTHWESTERN 0 - Russell Rein makes the start and per-
forms solidly in this Blue blowout. Rick Rogers rushes for a career-high 139 yards.
IOWA 26, MICHIGAN 0 - The Wolverines trailed only 12-0 late in the third quarter

tions to enable the Wolverines, behind Chris Zurbrugg's option offense, to avenge
last year's loss.

BRIGHAM YOUNG 47, BAYLOR 13-Bosco threw six touchdown passes in this

bone offense. But Vai Sikahema reeled off a punt return of 89 yards and a kick
return of 65 to spark the Cougars.
BRIGHAM YOUNG 18, HAWAII 13-BYU stopped the Rainbows on three goal-line

touchdowns, one on a 40-yard jaunt, to lead this trounce.

is ranked number one in the wire service polls for the first time ever.
BRIGHAM YOUNG 38, UTAH STATE 13-The largest crowd ever to watch a spor-
ting event in the state of Utah-65,508-watch the two teams throw 108 passes.

After watching its hopes of having
No. 1 Nebraska take on No. 2 South
Carolina for the national championship
go down the drain when both lost, the
Orange Bowl has been "forced" to set-
tle for another potential championship
matchup - No. 2 Oklahoma against No.
The battle in this game will come
down to the Sooners' potent wishbone
offense against the Huskies' stingy
defense. Oklahoma is led by option
quarterback Danny Bradley, who
rushed for 552 yards on 143 carries and
passed for 971 on 68-for-130 accuracy.
Out on the backfield, freshman Lydell
Carr leads the Sooners with 630 yards.
Washington's defense, which allowed
only 11.6 points per game this year, is
led by Kodak All-American lineman
Ron Holmes. Holmes had 117 tackles
(12 for a loss), forced four fumbles and
deflected eight passes.
When Washington has the ball, quar-
terback Paul Sicuro will be at the helm.
Sicuro took over two-thirds of the way
through the season, and since then has
completed 52 of 96 passes for 594 yards
and only two interceptions. Leading
rusher Jacque Robinson has gained 901
yards from his tailback position.

Peach December 31,
Scoring points should be the name
of the game when Purdue (7-4) and
Virginia (7-2-2) square off in Atlanta
for this year's Peach Bowl.
Both teams sport powerful offen-
ses, capable of racking up points
both on the ground and in the air.
And both also have weaknesses on
defense that could be exploited.
Purdue quarterback Jim Everett,
who completed 187 of 326 passes for
2450 yards this year and led the Big
Ten in total offense, should have a
good day for the Boilermakers if he
can hit his favorite target, wide
receiver Steve Griffin (48 catches,
for 810 yards and four touchdowns).
Virginia, meanwhile, should pose
a mixed offensive threat against
Purdue, which finished seventh in
the Big Ten on defense, giving up
23.0 points and 396 yards per game.
Sophomore quarterback Don
Majkowski connected on 83 passes
for 1235 yards for the Cavaliers this
season, while tailbacks Howard Pet-
ty and Berry Word combined for
over 1400 yards rushing.

Behind a 7-4 record and head
coach Gerry Faust, who is
welcomed by the student body with
chants of "Oust Faust", the Fighting
Irish of Notre Dame will prepare to
do battle against Southern Methodist

The Mustangs, led by junior quar-
terback Don King and tailbacks
Reggie Dupard and Jeff Atkins, are
the winningest college football team
since 1981 and have a previous bowl
record of 4-4-1.
The Irish will be paced by a strong
offensive running game with quar-
terback Steve Beuerlein and run-
ningback Allen Pinkett. Pinkett, a
junior, finished regular season play
with a total of 1,105 yards on 275
carries for 4.0 average.

Tiger coach Pat Dye had in mind for
a Christmas gift.
But Arkansas has reason to be
grateful. Picked to finish below .500,
the Hogs, under new coach Frank
Hatfield, went 7-3-1 mainly because
of a small but manic defense. With a
defensive line that averaged around
230 pounds, Arkansas was seventh in
