(3.56 goals against in 1985-86), who will start
both games of the series.
On offense, Falcon coach Jerry York plans to
"attack a little more than usual and try to put a
lot of shots on net" to test the young goalies
early. The leadingesharpshooters for Bowling
Green will be junior center Paul Ysebaert (23
goals, 45 assists, 68 points last season) and
senior left wing Iain Duncan (26-26-52).
One would expect Berenson dreading a season
opener with so many rookies against an
experienced group. But the third year coach
harbors no such fears. "It (opening against
Bowling Green) doesn't bother me because they
(Bowling Green) may be better two months from
now," Berenson said. "The important thing is
how well we play."

Junior tailback Jamie Morris will likely return to action this weekend
against Michigan State after sitting out against Wisconsin last week with
an injured knee. Morris rushed for 84 yards in last season's 31-0 victory
over the Spartans.

will not play. But only if
MSU coach George Perles can keep
White out of the game.
"Lorenzo showed me he can
walk, and he says he can play,"
Perles said Wednesday, "but I don't
think he can.
"If he plays injured, that sends a
message to the second-string guy
that he's not good enough, and you
don't want to do that."
T H AT second-string guy is
sophomore-eligible Craig Johnson.
This season Johnson has gained 86
yards on 17 carries, a 5.1 yard
average. Last year he rushed for
225 yards on 32 tries. From all
accounts, Johnson's ability makes
White's absence easier to swallow.
"Craig's bitten his lip and now
it's his turn," said Perles. "He's got
very good speed, and he can catch,
run, and block. He's a complete
ballplayer with his own style.
"If he can have a good game,
we've got a real good chance."
ALSO critical to the Spartans'
chances are wideouts Mark Ingram
and Andre Rison. Ingram, a 5-10,
188-pound senior flanker from
J Flint, leads his club at 19.6 yards
per catch while Rison is second at
19.3. Combined, the two have
accounted for over 600 yards in
offense and five touchdowns.
"The keys (to MSU's attack) are
the two wideouts," said
Schembechler. "Their whole offense

year ago, but not now. They'll
move the football."
But with the nation's second-
leading passer at the helm,
Michigan will generate offense as
well. And the additions of tailback
Jamie Morris and split end Paul
Jokisch, who both missed the
Wisconsin game with injuries,
should sharpen Michigan's attack.
The unique Spartan defense,
which features four down lineman,
calls for some adjustments, but
Schembechler knew that Monday.
So how important is tomorrow's
clash? Said Spartan center Pat
Shurmur: "If we go 2-9 or 1-10 and
