(Jefferson) and Eric Dickerson in a
25 jersey (Vaughn). They just kept
running and running. I couldn't un-
derstand it.
"We (the Blue team) had some
mistackles here and there. We
couldn't catch them for some rea-
son," Welborne said.
In all, the White ran through,
over and around the Blue defense for
305 yards on 46 carries for a tidy av-
erage gain of 6.6 yards. On their first
scoring drive, they marched 75 yards
for a touchdown without attempting
a pass.
Even Levitius Johnson
gained 32 yards after he changed di-
rections on a botched reverse and ran
down the left sideline.
"I was kind of happy we were
able to run the ball for a few yards,"
Moeller said. An understatement? Of
course. But remember that the
Vaughn-Jefferson show was brought
to the 18,000 sun-soaking Michigan
Stadium fans at Michigan Stadium
courtesy of his defense.
"I had hoped our defense would
have been stronger," Moeller said. "I
think it was an example of the better
defensive team winning the game."
Another disappointment for
Moeller was the play of
starting quarterback Elvis Grbac.

Trying to rally the Blue team back
from a 14-3 halftime deficit, Grbac
threw several ill-advised passes that
resulted in interceptions by'Vada

Grbac finished with 179 yards on

"I would have liked to have seen
Elvis' team score a touchdown. I
think he did a pretty good job. He

Instead, the Blue team had to set-
