"I thought it would be a close game
and I was surprised by the score."
Minnesota head coach Lou Holtz,
who is almost never at a loss for wor-
ds, couldn't say much after the loss.
"In my wildest dreams, I didn't think
the game would go as it did," he said.
"The two turnovers and the blocked
punt hurt us. Once you're behind
Michigan, it's tough to come back."
The Wolverines dominated a Min-
nesota squad that had the Big Ten's
second-ranked defense along with an
offense that averaged over 28 points
per game. "This is a big win," tight
end Eric Kattus said. "We came up
here in their home stadium and beat
them pretty good."
"I THINK it shows what can haypen
when our defense and offense play the
way they're supposed to."
Indeed, both the offense and defense
passed early tests. Minnesota's star
quarterback, Rickey Foggie, was
neutralized early along with the

usually loud Gopher fans, who stayed
quiet after the first quarter.
Michigan quarterback Jim Har-
baugh engineered the offensive attack
with a pair of 27-yard touchdown
passes to 6-9 wideout Paul Jokisch
along with another five-yard scoring
pass to tailback Jamie Morris. He en-
ded the day with 13 completions in 18
attempts, good for 243 yards and also
broke Steve Smith's season com-
pletion record of 118, finishing with
123.
"THE OFFENSIVE line gave me
more time today than I think I'd ever
had in football," Harbaugh said.
"When the offensive line gives you so
much time, that's a blessing."
Althnugh the junior signal-caller credited
his line, he also relied on skill to
make several big plays, especially on
third-down situations, where
Michigan converted ten of 15 oppor-
tunities. On a few occasions, Har-
baugh was forced out of the pocket,

scrambled, and completed a pass.
"He got in a bind," said center Bob
Tabachino. "He's a good runner.
Jimmy's a heckuva quarterback, a lot
of people don't realize that. He's
probably the best all-around quarter-
back (in the Big Ten)."
While the offensive line prevented
Harbaugh from getting sacked, it also
opened up holes for Gerald White, who
scored a pair of touchdowns while
amassing 92 yards on the 19 carries.
Part of the reason for the improved
line play was guard Mike Husar, who
made his first appearance since
spraining his ankle in the Maryland
game. "It made a difference," said
Kattus. "It's just nice to have him
back."
Defensively, it was business as
usual for the Wolverines, although
they did give up their first extra-point
conversion of the year. With five
minutes left, Andy Hare caught a
twelve-yard touchdown pass from
Foggie. The score came against the
second team.
"WE WANTED the shutout because
we were rated number one in the
nation," co-captain Brad Cochran
said. "But the other guys got a chance
to play and they did a good job."
Gary Moeller's defense was
challenged on the Gopher's first
possession when they moved to
Michigan's 46. But a key third-down
sack of Foggie by Mike Hammerstein
ended the drive. The only other
serious Minnesota threat came in the
half's final seconds, when it drove to
the Michigan one with second-string

quarterback Alan Holt at the helm. A
procedure penalty put the Gophers
back to the five, and Holt was stopped
on fourth down at the two to end
the half.
"Our defense is that kind of defen-
se," Schembechler said. "They find a
way to get people stopped and they did
it all afternoon. They've been playing
that way all year.
"IF THEY stop this team (Ohio
State) next week I'm going to say they
arejomething else."
Holtz, who jokingly doubted his team
would get a first down earlier in the
week, said, "Michigan's ability to
rush the passer was very impressive.
It was a near flawless performance."
THE WOLVERINES' special teams
also had a productive day. Dave Ar-
nold got his second blocked punt of the
season in the second quarter, setting
up Michigan's third touchdown.
Gilvanni Johnson, unheard from
most of the year, scored the
Wolverine's final touchdown of the af-
ternoon when he returned an Adam
Kelly punt 84 yards - the second-
longest punt return in Michigan
history.
The only bad news of the day for the
Wolverines was finding out that Ohio
State lost, making next week's battle
meaningless for the Rose Bowl unless
Iowa loses to Minnesota in Iowa City.
"I was hoping they wouldn't have
lost to Wisconsin," Kattus said,
"because that would have been a bet-
ter victory if there would have been
the Big Ten championship."

WHEN OPPORTUNITY knocks, you've got
to open the door to let it in.
Earlier this season when Michigan played at
Iowa and Illinois, the Wolverine offense didn't
hear the knocks let alone open the door. Lately
though, the Wolverines have not just heard the
knocks and opened the door they've torn it off its
hinges.
Two weeks ago when the Wolverines tied the
Illini 3-3, their conservative offense blew a
couple of prime scoring chances and failed to
create other opportunities to get on the
scoreboard. Freshman kicker Mike Gillette
missed a field goal right before the half, and
Gerald White fumbled on the Illini nine in the
fourth quarter when Michigan was driving for a
potential winning score.
A month ago in a 12-10 loss at Iowa, Bo Schem-
bechler's crew didn't hold onto the ball long
enough to have any real opportunities or to be
anything but conservative. The Hawkeyes had
possession of the ball two-thirds of the game,
something that is more typical of what the
Wolverines do to their opponents instead of what
is done to them.
In both cases, the thing that kept Michigan in
the game was defense, which held both Iowa and
Illinois out of the endzone. Had it not been for the
play of the defensive units, the Hawkeyes and

the Illini might have tota
the Wolverines, instead
with them.
