"IF THEY'RE available, we have a
great deal of interest in them," said
Tony Alba, a member of the bowl's
selection committee. "They've played
well enough that they could even lose
(to Ohio State) and still be attractive.
They will still be ranked around 10th
or 11th."
Oklahoma or Nebraska have been
rumored to be the teams sought to
play what the committee hopes will be
Michigan. Brigham Young was also
heard to be a possibility. Alba,
however, could not name specific
teams. "It's against NCAA rules to
speculate, but I will say that we have
a good chance of pairing two top ten
teams," he said.

The Fiesta Bowl, played in Arizona
State's Sun Devil Stadium, has grown
in popularity over the last few years.
It has a $1.4 million payoff to be split
by each university and its conference.
The game will be televised on NBC
this year as a lead-in to the Rose
Bowl.
MICHIGAN IS still being con-
sidered by the Cotton Bowl and
the Florida Citrus Bowl, but it's out of
the Orange Bowl. Penn State repor-
tedly said it would accept a bid to the
Orange Bowl against the Big Eight
Champ.
But most of the Michigan staff is op-
timistic about the Rose Bowl. "Our
first priority is the Rose Bowl,"
Canham said. "We aren't planning
anything else.
At his weekly press luncheon,
Schembechler said, "The writers
know more about what's going on than
I do because they already have us in
the Fiesta. There's still hope we can
represent the conference in the Rose
Bowl. That's the prime objective right
now."

the 17th-year coach. Tailback Thomas
Wilcher will practice this week and
should be ready. Offensive guard
Mike Husar, after playing well again-
st Minnesota, is expected to start.
On the negative side, Dieter Heren,

the kick-blocking specialist, is "ex-
tremely doubtful" since he is still suf-
fering from strained knee ligaments.
Flanker Erik Campbell is doubtful
with a concussion. He spent Saturday
night in a Minneapolis hospital for
observation.

Harbaugh nabs honors
CHICAGO (UPI) - Michigan
quarterback Jim Harbaugh and
Wisconsin linebacker Michael
Reid were named yesterday as Un-
ited Press International's Big Ten
player of the week for their
weekend performances.
Harbaugh was named Big Ten
Offensive Player of the Week. He
completed 13-of-18 passes for 243
yards and three touchdown passes
as Michigan blasted Minnesota, 48-
7.
Reid recovered three fumbles as
Wisconsin upset Ohio State 12-7
and was named defensive player of
the week for his efforts.

Power play comes alive...
. . . Norton adds vigor
By SCOTT G. MILLER
T IS NOT surprising that Michigan is ranked fifth in power play
efficiency in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. The team's
play has been inconsistent this season, and the power play is no excep-
tion. But this appears to be changing.
In last weekend's split against Illinois-Chicago the power play exploded
for five goals in 11 attempts. The week before, the Wolverines managed
only three goals in 17 attempts versus Michigan State. Michigan could not
even score on a two-minute two-man advantage.
The improvement can be traced to Michigan head coach Red Beren-
son's decision to move center Chris Seychel to the point and to put defen-
seman Jeff Norton at forward during man-advantage situations.
Norton and Seychel's production increased because of the change.
Seychel had one goal and five assists on the weekend, and two of the
assists came on the power play. Norton's four goals, three of which were
scored on the power play, and one assist were good enough to earn him co-
CCHA player-of-the-week honors.
"I've been in a sophomore slump, and hopefully I am starting to break
out of it," said Norton. "My plus-minus has been mostly minus for the last
couple of weeks. This is a real boost for me."
Norton's play was also uplifting for his teammates. "That was the best
game I think I have evern seen Norton play in his life," said Seychel after
Saturday's contest. "It was an outstanding performance."
Despite his success at forward, Norton will not become a full-time
winger. "I've been playing forward most of my life, and its nice to get
back up there," said the sophomore. "But I like defense because it is a
challenging position to play.'
Though the power play has improved, the Wolverines will have to con-
tinue working on it. Michigan failed to convert on two crucial attempts
during the third period of Friday's loss. The missed opportunities give the
team no reason to feel complacent.
One of Michigan's failed power plays featured three Illinois-Chicago
shots on net, and the puck remained in the Wolverine end for a minute and
a half. It was a study in ineptitude.
"We just got caught running around and that's the thing we have been
concerned with in the past and it showed up," said defenseman Myles
O'Connor. "Nobody seemed to want the puck. Nobody wanted to take con-
trol out there."
If someone seizes command consistently, the Wolverine power play
could become a strength. "Overall the power play was a positive part of
our game this weekend," said Berenson. "That is the best I have seen our
power play look all year. Hopefully that will give us some confidence, and
it will become a better part of our game."
In other hockey developments:
" Brad Jones' two goals and one assist kept him among the CCHA
scoring leaders. Jones is currently in third place with 11 goals and 11
assists behind Bowling Green's Jamie Wansbrough and Paul Ysebaert.
" Billy Powers was kept off the score sheet for the first time this season
Friday night. Powers rebounded Saturday to tally three assists.
" Quote of the week goes to Illinois-Chicago coach Val Belmonte for his
statements on intensity: "I think the big thing for us and for any team
whether it be a hockey, football, or basketball team is that you can't play
college athletics without emotion. Certainly anybody that plays (against)
Michigan football has to pump themselves up. If they don't get them-
selves up to play Bo, they are going to lose. I think emotion in college
athletics is tough to read. If I could, I would bottle it and sell it and
become a millionaire. Bo and I would make tons of money."
