Schembechler hopes that Hunter's
scrambling and passing abilities will
scare the daylights out of his team and
avoid a letdown. That fourth quarter
against the Spartans also alerted
Schembechler and defensive
coordinator Lloyd Carr to get ready for
a possible offensive explosion from
Hunter and the Boilermakers.
"(Hunter) put 21 points up on that
board awful fast. I think we'd better
prepare for a scrambling quarterback,"
Schembechler said. "If we don't, it'll
be a mistake."
Schembechler said he might place
as many as six defensive backs in the
game at one time. Along with a tight
secondary defense, Michigan hopes
that its pass rush will keep placing
insurmountable pressure on opposing
quarterbacks. The Wolverines already
have 28 sacks this year, with
defensive lineman Mike Evans leading
the charge with five.
Purdue has not fared successfully
on defense either, already yielding
2,945 yards this season, 1,142 yards
more than Michigan has. One
standout on the Boilermaker defense,
however, has been junior linebacker
Darrin Trieb, who leads the squad
with 83 tackles.
Michigan fullback Jarrod Bunch
continued to practice this week and
will play for the second straight week.
Bevy of bowl bids at stake this weekend

Ohio State (5-2) at
Northwestern (0-7) Ohio State
needed to score 34 second-half points
last week to defeat a rugged
Minnesota squad. Up next,
Northwestern. Iowa head coach
Hayden Fry said that the '89
Wildcats are the best Northwestern
team he's ever seen. That's quite a
backhanded compliment, considering
Francis Peay's team has yet to win a
game. The Bucks might just need
more late game heroics from
quarterback Greg Frey to keep their
A ua t B
John Hancock Bowl hopes alive.
Michigan State (3-4) at
Indiana (4-3) After a close victory
over Purdue, the Spartans will try to
revert back to their old game plan.
This consists of: 1) getting really
pumped for a big opponent, 2)
playing well and then making a
couple of stupid errors to lose the
game, and 3) whining the next week
about how they should have won.
State has mastered this process.
Illinois (6-1) at Iowa (4-3) Jeff
George and company invade Iowa
City to take on the Hawkeyes.
Illinois may get distracted from the
pink walls of the visitor's locker
room or the prospect of playing
Michigan on November 11. The
Hawkeyes need all the help they can
get. Iowa is in jeopardy of missing a
bowl for the first time since 1981.
What a shame.
Wisconsin (2-5) at Minnesota
(4-3) The question is, will anyone
watch this game? The Badgers must
contend with Minnesota's "bend and
break" defense, which last week
relinquished 42 points to Ohio State.
It's scary to think that Wisconsin's
program, one of the sorriest in
college football, is under
investigation by the NCAA.
Imagine how bad they'll be if they
have to follow the rules.
