...a thrilling start
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler has
spoken against playing night games on numerous occasions, but no
one can deny that Saturday's thriller between the Wolverines and Notre
Dame deserved its place in the spotlight.
Although the 1988 college football campaign is still in its infant
stages, the Fighting Irish's 19-17 victory before 59,075 hysterical fans
will rank among the season's finest.
4 It matched two nationally ranked teams filled with rich tradition.
It was General Bo versus the feisty Lou Holtz. When asked about a
call he disputed in the third quarter, Holtz said: "I think that's the only
time I lost my poise all day I'm proud to say. I thought I handled
The players shared their respective coaches' zestfullness. As

It was a game of high emotions throughout. In the third quarter, the
"'television camera showed a teary-eyed Ricky Watters on the bench after
he fumbled a punt deep in his own end. This game obviously meant
'A real nerve tingler
Not unlike past meetings between these two football giants, the
gamne included all the action and suspense of an Alfred Hitchcock
Something dynamic always seems to happen when these two teams
face each other in Notre Dame Stadium. In 1980 Harry Oliver's 51-yard
.field goal with time running out lifted the Irish to a 29-27 win over the
.tOe Wolverines. Two years ago Michigan eaked past Notre Dame, 24-
23, when John Carney missed a 42-yard field-goal attempt with 17
This game rode an emotional roller coaster. M rigan and Notre
Dame traded leads four times in the second half. Fans were in and out of
their seats so much the stadium resembled a giant jack-in-the-box.
Wolverine quarterback Michael Taylor scampered into the end zone
,ate in the fourth quarter to give Michigan a 14-13 advantage. Back and
forth the game went - and back again.
After Mike Gillette's 48-yard field-goal attempt missed right as time
ran out, Irish fans stormed the field as if their team had just won the
Irish go home happy
"We're not a great football team, but it is a win, and I was
exceptionally proud," said Notre Dame head coach Lou Holtz. "The
only people happier than us has got to be CBS."
CBS-TV went head to head with ABC-TV Saturday night, who
televised the UCLA-Nebraska game. That game was decided early when
the Bruins opened up a 28-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.
"Notre Dame is a good, physical team," Schembechler said. "They
hit hard. More power to them. In my judgement they deserved to win. I
won't deny that."
E "I don't think we played well defensively, and I don't hink we
protected our passer real well. Notre Dame played a very fine game."
So the rivalry continues. Michigan and Notre Dame face each other
the next six years, which is not good for anyone who is shorts on
