*Michigan bowls over
more than Hoosiers
BLOOMINGTON - The Michigan football team made a statement Sat-
urday. The Wolverines 45-19 manhandling of Indiana marked a return to the
form that they showed in games against UCLA and Maryland last month.
They also showed the 11 bowl representatives in attendance that Michi-
gan would be an attractive commodity no matter where it travels. Represen-
e tives from the All-American, Blockbuster, Copper, Florida Citrus, Hall of
ame, John Hancock, Liberty, Mazda Gator, Mobil Cotton, Peach, and Sea
World Holiday Bowls watched Saturday's game.
"They played liked a No. 1 team today," said Gary Stokan, Vice Chair-
man on toe Team Selection Committee for the Peach Bowl. "I think they
have a great chance of going 8-3 and, if they do, they will be playing on
New Year's Day."
The Hoosiers entered the game with the conference's top-rated defense in
both yards (292.8 per game) and scoring (12.7), but Michigan ignored those
statistics. The Wolverines rolled up 461 yards on offense and scored eight
more points than Indiana had allowed in its four victories.
After punting on their fourth play from scrimmage, the Wolverines pro-
ceeded to score on five of their next seven possessions to take a 31-0 lead
with 2:54 left in the first half. It was an offense that mixed the pass with
the run, enabling Michigan to exploit the top-ranked defense.
While the Wolverines' offense lit up the scoreboard, their defense forced
the Hoosiers into two interceptions and five punts on their first seven pos-
sessions. Indiana did not gain its second first down until its final drive of the
first half when Michigan already owned a 31-point advantage.
With a renewed offense and defense, the Wolverines seem destined to fin-
ish the regular season with a five-game winning streak. A winning streak
,that should enable them to play in a January bowl game for the sixth con-
Unfortunately for Stokan, the Peach Bowl is played before the new year
and he feels Michigan will be playing on January 1. However, he also
thinks the Peach Bowl has a good opportunity to lure the Wolverines if they
lose another game.

BLOOMINGTON - The
Wolverines taught Indiana a lesson
on the football field Saturday and, at
the same time, learned something
themselves - the three R's.
Michigan's players and coaching
staff were redeemed and relieved and
also rebounded as they put an ex-
clamatory end to a two-game losing
streak in Bloomington, Indiana,
moving their record to 4-3 (2-2 Big
Receiver Desmond Howard and
linebacker Erick Anderson called the
45-19 victory "a gut-check." Michi-
gan fans might have called the game
a team pulse-check after seeing their
team suffer consecutive one-point
losses at home to Michigan State
(28-27) and Iowa (24-23).
"I think the pressure was on us,
Michigan coach Gary Moeller said.
"It's a pride factor you're playing
for. We said this week in practice
that we're going to hang together,
play as a group and not let people
Indiana, which started the season
4-0, fell to 4-2-1.
"We got a good old fashioned
kicking," Indiana coach Bill Mallory
said. "We never really made anything
happen and they controlled the line
of scrimmage on both sides."

Defensive lineman Mike Evans puts the pressure on quarterback Trent Green before he was replaced for the
more mobile Todd Dyer. On the day, the Wolverines totalled five sacks, including this one by Evans. The
Wolverines' defense was instrumental in Michigan's 45-19 victory Saturday.
Icers sweep Flames, move
into first place in CCHA

Daily Hockey Writer
The Michigan hockey team was
like that old television in your
basement this weekend. It took a
while to get warmed up, but once it
did, it worked fine.
The Wolverines overcame slug-
gish starts in both games to sweep
the Flames of Illinois-Chicago, 9-2
and 5-1. The wins boosted
Michigan's record to 5-1 in the
Central Collegiate Hockey Associa-
tion, and with Lake Superior State
playing a non-conference series this
weekend, the Wolverines vaulted
into first place in the conference as
The biggest news of the series
was the play of rookie goaltender
Steve Shields. In the Wolverines'
two previous series, Michigan coach
Red Berenson had alternated Shields
and junior Tim Keough on consec-
utive nights. But after Shields' 28-
save performance Friday night,
Berenson gave him the nod again.
"Coach told us that he would go
with the guy who stood out,"
Shields said after Saturday's game. "I
was ready for (the start) tonight."
The two games were easily
Michigan's top two goaltending
performances of the young season.
In Shield's previous start, he was
bombarded by Bowling Green and
pulled in favor of Keough with ten
minutes left in the game.
"Getting two wins really helped
after my performance against
Bowling Green," Shields said. "I had
to keep telling myself I could do it."
Michigan was not hurting on the
offensive side of the ledger either, as
the most prolific scoring team in the
CCHA was true to its high-scoring
reputation. In both games, however,
the Wolverines took their time
finding the scoring touch. Michigan
held a 1-0 lead at the first inter-
mission Friday, and there was no
score at the same juncture on
Saturday night, the Wolverines
received scoring support from some
unexpected sources in the second
period, as their top two scoring lines
were held in check.
Michigan drew first blood when
senior center Don Stone blasted the
puck past Flames' goaltender Jeff
Featherstone five minutes into the
period. Newcomer David Oliver
added to Michigan's lead ten minutes
later, off assists from fellow rookie
Cam Stewart and senior defenseman
Sophomore defenseman Chris
Tamer cemented the Wolverines' lead
with 22 seconds left in the period, as
Stewart and Oliver each picked up an

Oliver was on the ice for all three of
the second-period goals.

Senior co-captain Don Stone faces off with Bob Melton of Illinois-Chicago. Stone scored the first goal in
Michigan's 5-1 victory Saturday against the Flames off a pass from Ted Kramer in the second period.
