The other flash of success came during the

12-9. Ohio State immediately closed the lead to
12-11, but could not rattle the Wolverines, who
swept the final three points of the game.
But as the match progressed, Michigan be-

vs. Rutgers

Duckett's biggest yards came
early in the second half when he
gained 55 of the 68 yards on the
Spartans' opening drive that fullback
Rob Roy capped with a 1-yard run.
That broke a 10-10 tie and triggered
a 24-point second half for Michigan
State (1-1-1).
"We stressed all week that we
wanted to get our running game
going because that's the backbone of
our offense," said Duckett, a sprinter
on the Spartans' track team. "We
came out in the second half and
wanted to establish our running
game. The only way you can do that
is take it up the gut and that's what
we did."
Michigan State, which had rushed
for 288 yards in its first two games,
picked up 315 on 57 carries against
Rutgers, with 217 coming in the
second half.

However, Spartan coach Perles

said he's not ready to send Duckett
to the Hall of Fame.
"He did tonight what I think he
can do," Perles said. "At times he
ran the way a good back should.
He's got a lot of ability. But we've
got to keep him working hard so we
can get it all out of him."
Duckett, who had scored on a 1-
yard run in the second quarter, gave a
lot of credit to his offensive line,
Roy and tight end Duane Young.
"I ran a little harder tonight than I
did in the first two games," said
Duckett, who had 144 yards in 34
carries in the first two games.
"I felt more comfortable. I don't
know why but the chemistry was
there. I got into the flow of the
game especially in the second half
and the holes were there."

Murray can't find
mark as Lions lose
PONTIAC (AP) - Don Majkowski rallied Green Bay for twc4
fourth-quarter touchdowns and Detroit's Eddie Murray missed his fourth
field goal with three seconds to play as the Packers beat the Lions, 24-
21, Sunday.
Majkowski, just hitting his stride after a lengthy contract holdout,
completed 28 of 46 passes for 289 yards for Green Bay (2-2). Rodney
Peete completed 17 of 34 for 200 yards and one touchdown. He also
scored one on a 7-yard run for Detroit (1-3).
Peete tossed a 4-yard TD to Robert Clark. Barry Sanders, who gained
94 yards on 20 carries, had a 3-yard scoring run.
Majkowski hit Ed West with a 3-yard TD, Michael Haddix with a 4-
yarder and Jeff Query from 26 yards out with the winning toss.
The Lions led, 21-10, when Majkowski found his touch late in the
third quarter.
With Majkowski completing 5 of 6 passes for 44 yards and running
for 15 on a keeper, the Packers drove 61 yards in eight plays to cut their
deficit to 21-17 with 11:01 left in the fourth quarter. Majkowski flipped
to Haddix for the score.
Mel Gray returned the ensuing kickoff 43 yards to midfield. The
Lions drove to the 34, but Murray missed a 50-yard attempt with 7:38
Perry Kemp's fumble two plays later was recovered by Dennis
Gibson and the Lions drove to the 33, where Murray missed a 51-yard
attempt with 3:09 to play.
Majkowski then drove the Packers 66 yards in nine plays, hitting
Query for the go-ahead score with 55 seconds remaining.
Detroit then drove to the 26, where Murray was wide left on a 44-yard
attempt with three seconds remaining.
The Lions, surprising the Packers with a no-huddle offense, opened
the game by driving 64 yards in eight plays for Peete's TD toss to
Clark. Peete ran the ball himself three times for 29 yards during the

A 38-yard pass interference penalty against Detroit's LeRoy Irvin at
the 5-yard line set up Majkowski's 3-yard scoring flip to West and gave
the Packers a 10-7 lead with 10:04 left in the second quarter.
The Lions answered with an apparent 17-yard TD pass from Peete to
Richard Johnson with 7:28 left. But the play was reversed on replay, and
Murray then missed a 34-yard field goal attempt.


head coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes said.
At times, the offense was so slow that the
Buckeyes had three blockers waiting to stuff the
Michigan hitters. Gomplexity and speed on the
offensive side of the net is ultimately what sepa-

"We have been trying to speed up the offense,
and -to get a faster attack," Michigan assistant
coach Jim Smoot said. "We have been running
too basic of an attack. It is too easy tor the other
teams to defend."
The squad began the weekend with a three-
game thrashing at the hands of Indiana. In less
than fifty minutes, the Hoosiers left with a

what willing fans tried unsuccessfully to hit a
target positioned across the net.
Marked by mental errors and a lack of quick-
ness, the match was a clear demonstration of the
inexperience of Bradley-Doppes' team.
"We're playing better, but it's still streaky,"
she said. "Right now, our excuse could still be
that we're young and have a lot of injuries. We're
playing at least three, sometimes four, freshmen
on the floor at all times."
After trailing most of the first game, Michi-
gan rallied to tie the score at 10. But then the
team fell apart, giving the game away on passing
and serving errors.
"Those (errors) are rookie mistakes," Bradley-
Doppes said. "When these kids decide they really
want it - when they want to be aggressive and
intense - we're going to be OK."
