Continued from Page 1
SURE, THE fans in Michigan
Stadium are more likely than the fans
in Iowa's Kinnick Stadium to be
from uptown places such as New
York and Chicago.
Iowa fans are more likely to come
from little burgs such as Cerro Gordo
(Spanish for fat pig) and Dubuque
(which doesn't rhyme with barbecue,
which is what Iowans do with their
fat pigs).
Dubuque, for those who haven't
vacationed in the heartland, rhymes
with something one might hear at an
Ann Arbor sophisticate's house the
night after a party with classy friends
- "What's dat stain on duh carpet?"
"It's duh puke."
And Schembechler says Iowa fans
are less sophisticated.
All that Hawkeyes fans needed to
know was that a loss would have
been devastating to their team's Rose
Bowl chances. Michigan is now 2-0-
I in the conference. Iowa is 1-0-2.
Illinois and Indiana are tied for first
with 3-0 records.
Michigan, which has yet to play
Illinois or Indiana, can still win the
Big Ten and advance to the Rose
Bowl by winning the rest of its
conference games.
"We're not as well off as if we'd
won, but we're not as bad off as if
we'd lost," said Michigan nose guard
and defensive captain Mark Messner.
MICHIGAN came back from a
17-3 deficit to tie the game at 17 and
looked as if it was going to win, but
fell short when running back Tracy
Williams fumbled at Iowa's one-yard
line with 1 minute 21 seconds left in
the game.
Williams said his forward motion
had been stopped and that he
technically was down when the ball
was knocked loose.
"After I was hit and the ball came
loose, there were people all over me.
I couldn't move," Williams said.
Schembechler refused to second-
guess his call to hand off the ball to
Williams. "You give the ball to the
man that the play calls for,"
Schembechler said.
IOWA moved the ball to its own
46-yard line to set up a last-ditch
attempt to win the game. Hawkeye
quarterback Chuck Hartlieb (26 of
33, 263 yards passing) and tight end
Mary Cook (nine receptions for 111
yards) tried to connect on a pass as
they had so many times earlier in the
game, but the pass fell incomplete.
"(The football) hit me," Cook
said. "But if I'd caught it, I think I
would have went down (without
Giants
slay
Lions
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J
(AP)-Phil Simms threw a 51-yard
scoring pass to Stephen Baker and
Raul Allegre kicked three field goals
yesterday as the New York Giants
scored on their first four possessions
of the second half for a 30-10 victory
over the Detroit Lions.
It was the Lions sixth straight
loss.

The Giants, 4-3, held Detroit, 1-6,
to minus 19 yards on its four third
quarter possessions and did not allow
the Lions, who entered the game
ranked next-to-last on offense in the
league, to pick up a first down on 16
plays during which new :quarterback
Rusty Hilger missed all seven of his
pass attempts.
HILGER completed only nine of
28 passes for 130 yards, with one
interception. The Lions, with only 13
yards in the second half, finished with
113 yards, including only 48 rushing.
The defense gave the Giants
offense good field position and
Allegre used it to kick field goals of
33, 48 and 25 yards as New York
overcame a 10-7 halftime deficit.
Simms and the offense accounted for
the go-ahead touchdown at the start of
the half after Mark Collins returned
the second-half kickoff 26 yards to the
New York 36.
SIMMS, who completed 23 of 32
passes for 320 yards, hit Joe Morris
for nine yards on the opening play,
and four plays later hit Baker on a
slant over the middle for the Giants'
longest scoring pass play of the
season. Simms also hit Mark Bavaro
on a 6-yard touchdown pass in the
second quarter and Morris scored on a

scoring) anyway."
Iowa took a 7-0 lead on its second
possession. Hartlieb (26 for 33, 263
yards passing) threw a five-yard
completion to Cook for the score.
The teams traded field goals before
Taylor fumbled while being chased
down at his own eight-yard line.
Four plays later, David Hudson ran
in to give Iowa a 17-3 lead with 6:46
left in the first half.
But the Wolverines had a few
things to say about being the main
course at this picnic. With Taylor
(13 for 22, 172 yards) and wide
receiver Greg McMurtry (six
receptions for 91 yards) doing their
best imitation of Hartlieb and Cook,
and tailback Tony Boles (22 rushes
for 148 yards) looking like he has
since the season started, Michigan
drove steadily down the field.
MICHIGAN had first down at
Iowa's 17-yard line when the fan
noise kept Taylor from lining up.
The referee then whistled Taylor for a
delay-of-game penalty, moving the
ball back and Schembechler's blood
pressure up.
Schembechler stormed onto the
field to complain and was hit with a
15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct
penalty, moving Michigan back to
the 37-yard line.
. "The (referee) has no
conception..." Schembechler said
after the game. "You can't play
football in a hostile stadium if you
can't hear."
Hartlieb said: "I think the referee
controlled the game well today. Bo
obviously overreacted and got
penalized for it."
But Taylor made up the yardage
quickly with a couple of passes and a
couple of runs, scoring on a five-yard
run. Iowa led at intermission, 17-10.
IOWA looked as if it was going
to take a two-touchdown lead in the
third quarter. Running back Tony
Stewart ran five times for 31 of
Iowa's 52 yards in moving down to
Michigan's one-yard line.
Iowa elected to go for the
touchdown on fourth-and-one, calling
Stewart's number for the play.
Stewart's other runs on the drive all
went for more than one yard, but this
time he fumbled, going nowhere.
Messner said, "Bo said if we held
them there, we'd win."
Half right. The Wolverines didn't
lose, which is what they had done on
their last two trips to Iowa City.
After Stewart's fumble, the
Wolverines marched 99 yards down
the field. Taylor threw a 24-yard pass
to wide receiver John Kolesar for the
touchdown, and Mike Gillette's extra
point tied the game and ended the
scoring.

Referee John Nealon reaches for that yellow flag which
signaled an unsportsmanlike conduct call against Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler. Schembechler was protesting a delay-
of-game call against Michigan.
NFL Round-up
Patriots 27, Bengals 21
The passing of Boomer Esiason was the main ingredient in
Cincinnati's 6-0 start. It also was the main reason the Bengals no longer
are undefeated.
Esiason, the league's leading passer, was picked off five times - he
had only three interceptions in the winning streak - and New England
used a time-consuming ground attack to upset the Bengals 27-21
yesterday. The Patriots' victory meant every NFL team has lost at least
once.
Dolphins 31, Chargers 28
At Miami, the Dolphins won their third in a row as Dan Marino won a
passing duel with Mark Malone. Marino had his first 300-yard passing
game of the season and hit Mark Duper with a 51-yard pass to set up the
winning touchdown.
Marino, who struggled in Miami's first six games, completed 26 of 45
passes for 329 yards and one score. The six-year pro has 27 300-yard
games, one more than Johnny Unitas and behind only Charger Dan Fouts
with 51.
