downs and leads the league in all-
purpose yards with 836. In addition,
he is one of Long's favorite targets,
coming out of the backfield for23 cat-
ches for 249 yards.
"You're just not going to shut an of-
fense like that completely down,"
admitted Schembechler. "Long's
going to hit some passes and Har-
mon's going to get some yards. The
question is how much can they score.
That's where it's all going to count."
AND THAT'S also where the
Wolverines will get a chance to play
their strong suit - their defense.
Michigan sports the number-one
scoring defense in the land, allowing
just 4.2 points per game. In the past
four contests, the Wolverines have
given up only one touchdown and one
field goal and remain the only team in
Division I-A that has not allowed an
extra point. They've recorded two
shutouts the latest one last week
against Michigan State when they
held the Spartans to 24 yards and no
first down in the second half.
"They've got one of the finest
college defenses I've ever seen," said
Fry. "Nobody has been able to move
the ball against them."
Nevertheless, while the nation is

bracing itself for a big struggle bet-
ween the Iowa offense and Michigan
defense, the battle might be won in a
different area as the two teams'
strengths cancel each other out.
IOWA'S defense which is led by
senior linebacker Larry Station, has
been suspect all season. Two weeks
ago, the Hawkeyes gave up over 500
yards to Michigan State and barely
won a tough contest.
Michigan's offense, meanwhile, has
been sluggish the past two games, but
has still averaged 385 yards per con-
test.
"They're the best balanced football
team in America," said Fry of.
Michigan. "I don't think there's any
question about that."
"IT'S GOING to be a tough game,''
said Schembechler.
After the contest, the winner will
probably be the top ranked team in
the country, a fact that both coaches
will be able to accept despite their
pre-game pessimism.
"I'll vote for the winner as the number
one team," said Fry, who is on the
panel of coaches who casts ballots in
the UPI poll.
"If we beat Iowa, I'll accept (the
top spot)," admitted Schembechler.

Finally, the inevitable happened. The Daily Line
special guest faltered and slipped to 7-3 last week.
7-3 is faltering you ask? Well, normally no, but
after three weeks of 9-1 records and one 8-2 mark,
7-3 is falling on your face (Sorry, Red). And,
believe it or not, the ever-wise Daily Scribes were
able to capitalize on coach Berenson's mistakes
and gain ground on the leader. Phil Nussel
managed a record of 8-2, while the other three
went a sparkling 9-1.

NUSSEL AND Mike Redstone continue to lead
the pack in the writer's division, while Joe Ewing
is one game back, and Brad Morgan is ... uh, well,
Brad Morgan is. Period.
"It feels like the essence of perfection," said
Nussel, never known for humility (or ability
before this season).
Seriously, though folks, the competition is star-
ting to heat up now that the Big Ten season has
started. Along with the tough slate of conference

games on tap this weekend, big matchups between
Texas and Arkansas and Army vs. Notre Dame
highlight this week's action.
Trying to prove they're more than just a bunch
of pretty faces this week will be the Michigan
Cheerleaders. Everyone knows that the guys are
great at getting spirit going at games, but do they
know their football? Tune in on Monday for the an-
swers to these and other exciting questions.

Around the Big Ten

Purdue (1-1, 3-2) at Ohio State
(1-1, 4-1)
Jim Everett, last week's AP Big
Ten offensive player of the week, will
bring the nation's number one passing
offense against the 11th ranked
Buckeyes. Everett will be looking to
throw to his running back Rodney
Carter, the third ranked receiver in
the country with 37 catches, and Steve

r

Griffin, who leads the Big
five touchdown grabs.

two receiver, David Williams.

State (0-2, 2-3) 1, 4-1)

FABULOUS FRIDAYS

is led by quarterback Rickey Foggie,
a threat both passing and rushing. He
is ranked number 10 in the Big Ten in
rushing, and number one in the con-
ference in passing efficiency despite
only 62 attempts.
Indiana has the Big Ten's third
ranked offense, but a pitiful defense,
ahead of only Illinois.
Northwestern (0-2) at Wiscon-
sin (0-2, 3-2)
Wisconsin played tough against
Iowa, allowing only 167 passing yards
to maintain its third rank in passing
defense. The Badgers' 5.3 yard per
carry average tops the Big Ten, and
Larry Emery is 13th in the nation with
528 yards rushing. Coach Dave Mc-
Clain is still undecided on who will
start for the Badgers at quarterback.
Around the Big Ten was com-
piled by Daily sportswriter Chris
