the Michigan score.
But Michigan wasn't through.
Not by a long shot.
AFTER FORCING the
Cougars (2-1) to punt on downs, the
Wolverines put another three points
on the board when Mike Gillette
booted his third field goal, a 32-
yarder, to up the lead to 23-10.
Just two plays following the
ensuing kickoff, Michigan was at it
again. Linebacker J.J. Grant stepped
in front of Washington State's Steve
Broussard and picked off quarterback
Timm Rosenbach's pass at the
Cougar 32 and returned it 14 yards.
"We had a couple guys open on
that play and I threw it to a wide
open linebacker," said Rosenbach.
The Wolverines went the final 18
yards in just over a minute. Quarter-
back Demetrius Brown, who re-
covered from a disasterous debut
against Notre Dame with a solid
eight-for-13, 174 yard performance
Saturday, went the final 12 yards
untouched on a quarterback bootleg.
"I RELAXED a little more and
just let things develop," said Brown.
"The reason we lost (to Notre
Dame), well, I played a big part in
it, and I kept it in the back of my
mind and said I wasn't going to let it
happen again."
"I'm happy for him,"
Schembechler said. "At least he can
keep his head up."
Michigan tacked on its final
seven points of the quarter minutes
later when Morris scored from the
one. The 66-yard, six-play drive was
kept alive by another personal foul
penalty and included a nice over-the-
shoulder catch by Kolesar, who got
behind Hasty - again.
"We got caught in man coverages
(in the secondary) and you can't ask
a cornerback to cover a man like a
blanket all over the field when the
quarterback gets time to throw," said
Hasty.
IN THE decisive quarter,
Michigan gained 178 total yards to
just nine for the Cougars. The
Wolverines also dominated the time
of possession, keeping the ball for
more than 10 minutes in the 15-
minute quarter.
"We just wanted to improve,"'
said Schembechler. "We were as low
as any Michigan team had ever been
to open the season... and we had to
try to gain our self respect and start
to play football like Michigan.
That's all I wanted to do was to play
like. Michigan and I thought in the
third period, we played like
Michigan."
"We came out fired up in the third
quarter and we decided we weren't
going to kick any more field goals,"
said Morris. "We wanted to go out
and score some touchdowns."
Washington State's players,
though, said their own offensive

breakdowns were the difference in the
game.
"IT WAS nothing they did
defensively," said Rosenbach. "It
was just us killing ourselves."
Despite the 26-point final
margin, it was a competitive game
through the first half. And, in fact,
Washington State took a 10-7 lead
early in the second period.
Using the short passing game on
offense and an aggressive, blitzing
style on defense, the Cougars caught
Michigan off guard with their
quickness. Rosenbach (30-of-49, 334
yards, two TDs) completed 17 passes
in the half, including 10-of-11
during a first period scoring drive
that knotted the game at seven.
MICHIGAN got off to the 7-0
lead when, after Phil Webb recovered
a fumbled punt, Brown found
Kolesar (three receptions for 104
yards) in the end zone for 25 yards
on a post pattern. It was Hasty again
who was found in single coverage,
as the Cougars sent both safeties in
to blitz.
"We knew the long pass would
break," said Michigan offensive
tackle John Elliott. "You just can't
play defense like that and not have
something pop open."
Washington State, however, came
back and would have entered the
second half with a lead instead of a
three-point deficit, if it weren't for a
couple holding penalties that negated
big plays.
On the first play after a Gillette
field goal that tied the score at 10,
Rosenbach found Broussard for what

appeared to be an 81-yard touch-
down. But a Cougar player was
flagged for holding defensive end
Mark Messner, and the play came
back. In all, the Cougars committed
10 penalties for 100 yards.
"We had a lot of holding penalties

that really hurt us, but we were not
blocking any different than in our
first two games," said Cougar head
coach Dennis Erickson. "Obviously
they (the refs) called it different. I'm
not making any excuses at all...
every place you go they call holding
a little bit different."

A wave of 1,700 runners filled
the streets of Ann Arbor yesterday
morning for the eighth annual
Michigan Big Ten Run. The race
benefitted the American Lung
Association which received between
13 and 18 thousand dollars ac-
cording to race organizer Richard
Lampman.
The event was divided into three
distances of two, five and ten miles.
A special category for children with
asthma was also set up.

"The asthma group was added to
demonstrate that people with
asthma, particularly kids, c an
participate in sports like this and
not get pushed to the back of the
gym," Lampman said.
The winner of the five mile was
Craig Dickenson with a time f
25:19, and Len Purusky posted an
impressive 51:49 to win the ten
mile race. The results of the two
mile were not available.

Before you choose a long distance
service, take a close look.
z--
You may be thinking about
choosing one of the newer
carriers over AT&T in order to
save money.
Think again.
Since January 1987, AT&T's
rates have dropped more than
15% for direct-dialed out-of-
state calls. So they're lower than
you probably realize. For infor-
mation on specific rates, you
call us at 1 800.222-0300.
And AT&T offers clear long
distance connections, operator
assistance, 24-hour customer
w. .. service, and immediate credit
for wrong numbers. Plusyou
can use AT&T to call from
anywhere to anywhere, all over
the United States and to over
250 countries.
You might be surprised at
how good a value AT&T really
is. So before you choose a
long distance company, pick

1) There is NO shortage of
engineers. This lie has been mouth-
ed by the two groups that benefit
from it: the college professors (full
classrooms mean fat paychecks) and
the corporate executives (increasing
the glut of engineers means reduc-
ing salaries). This nation is in a
deepening high-tech depression.

reports that the number of job offers
received by the engineering grad-
