Rose Bowl trip.
Even if Michigan ties Indiana or
Michigan State for the conference
title, it still does not go to Pasedena.
Northwestern has no hope for a
bowl vacation, but at the start of the
season, bowl talk was running
rampant in Evanston. Yes, Wildcat
fans consider the team's one win to
date a disappointment.
A 4-7 record last season,
including wins over Michigan State
and Illinois in the final two games,
renewed interest in the Northwestern
football program. It was t h e
Wildcats' best campaign since 1973.
INTERIM head coach Francis
Peay, who stepped in for Dennis
Green one week before spring
practice last season, was named
national Coach of the Year by
Sports Illustrated and subsequently

was signed to a long-term contract.
But this year the Wildcats have
only managed to tie Northern
Illinois and beat Wisconsin (0-4, 2-
5), 27-24. They have lost t o
conference contenders Indiana (35-
18), Michigan State (38-0), and
Minnesota (45-33), but Peay isn't
looking over his shoulder.
"We don't have to defend
anything," the Northwestern coach
said. "All I can say is that we were
0-4 in the Big Ten last year at this
time, and we're 1-3 right now.
"We have a long way to go
toward building a good football
program. I don't think it is
something that happens overnight.
We're not going to set any records in
building a program."
IT MAY take an eternity for
Northwestern to build a program,
but Michigan has tumbled from an
wo 'U .memmam'

11-2 conference championship
season to 4-3 in less than a year.
The Wolverines have fared well
against the likes of Long Beach
State and Wisconsin but have been
unable to beat the stronger
"We're just a very average
football team," head coach Bo
Schembechler said. "We're going to
have to play a good football game if
we're going to beat Northwestern. I
really believe that."
That statement is hard to fathom
considering Schembechler's past
success against the Wildcats. In 19
years as Michigan's head coach, he
is undefeated against them in 12
tries. The two teams last met in
1984 when Michigan won, 31-0, but
Schembechler expects a closer battle.

to blow anybody out Saturday," he

the season. Their latest casualty was
quarterback Demetrius Brown, who
injured his left (throwing-hand) Y
thumb last week against Indiana.
Junior Michael Taylor will start
tomorrow with either Brown or
rookie Eric Bush backing him up.
Taylor, like Brown, had three
years of eligibility remaining and
very little game experience before
the start of this season. He is
considered the better runner of the
two. Thus far, Taylor has completed

Like Hoosier quarterback Dave
Schnell, Schembechler considers
him a multiple threat.
"He's a big play guy,"
Schembechler said. "He's the type of
guy that can make the big play both
passing and running."

this weekend, opinions vary on
whether the run for the roses is a
three or six team race as Michigan,'-
Minnesota, and Iowa try to stay
The last time this weekend's foes
faced each other was 1984. Each
team dropped a Big Ten opponnent
when eight game conference
schedules were adopted in 1985.
These matchups include:
MSU at Ohio State -
Cliche lovers will call this "a crucial
Lorenzo White and Michigan
State (4-2-1, 3-0-1) are still in
control of their own destiny despite a
unsettling 14-14 tie with Illinois
last weekend. Illinois held White to
only 67 yards and ended his streak of
three straight 100-yard games. The
defense is led by Percy Snow' (77
tackles) and a player well known to
Demetrius Brown - safety John
Miller (37 tackles, 5 interceptions.)
The Buckeyes (5-1-1, 3-1), who
hold a 15-8 series advantage, have
not lost to Michigan State
since1974. Earl Bruce's team is
coming off their best all-around
game of the year, thanks to first-year
tailback Carlos Snow's four
touchdowns in a 42-9 romp against

Minnesota. The most "crucial"
question-te--this "crucial" game
appears to be what 'shade of black
Earl Bruce's sportcoat will be.
Indiana at Iowa - With a
win, Iowa could set the Big Ten race
blazing higher than Iranian oil
platforms in the Persian Gulf.
Trying to keep the match lit that
sparked Indiana's (6-1, 4-0) 14-10
win over Michigan, Bill Mallory
will try to stop Iowa's five
consecutive series wins. All purpose
player Ernie Jones leads the
conference with 152 yards per game,
averaging 19 yards each time he
touches the ball.
Iowa (5-3, 2-2) will be led by
flame-throwing Chuck Hartlieb, who
became the first quarterback in
Hawkeye history to pass for more
than 300 yards in consecutive
Minnesota at Illinois -
Minnesota (5-2, 2-2) tries to keep its
slim, Big Ten hopes alive.
Coming off a 14-14 tie with
Michigan State, Illinois has a big
reason to celebrate - homecoming.
The Illini (2-4-1, 1-2-1) are credited
with initi'ating the homecoming
tradition back in 1910. Other than
that, there's no reason to pay
attention to this game.
