Irish complete sweep of Michigan
ND finds its rushing attack in 36-14 win over Michigan State



There was no letdown for Notre
Dame Saturday, as Kevin McDougal
threw two touchdown passes and fresh-
man Randy Kinder helped rejuvenate
the running game in a 36-14 victory
over Michigan State.
One week after an emotional victory
at Michigan, the fighting Irish (3-0)
responded with their best performance
of the season, running for a season-best
269 yards and limiting the Spartans to
251 total yards.
After a 74-yard touchdown drive on
their opening possession, the Spartans
(1-1) had just four first downs over the
next two periods as the Irish scored 36
straight points.
McDougal, a senior who saw little
playing time behind three-year starter
Rick Mirer, completed 17 of 23 passes
for 185 yards and two touchdowns.
Kinder, one of the eight running backs
the Irish used, slashed through huge
holes for 94 yards on 12 carries.
Notre Dame had averaged 166rush-
ing yards in beating Northwestern and
The Irish haven't lost to Michigan
State since 1986, Lou Holtz's first sea-
son. Notre Dame has won 16 of the last
18 and leads the series, which began in
1897 and has been played every year

since 1959,40-18-1.
The Irish led just 9-7 late in the
second quarter when they took over at
the Michigan State 49 with 1:04left. As
hedid last weekatMichigan, McDougal
directed a masterful touchdown drive.
With just one timeout remaining,
McDougal used theclockexpertlycom-
pleting four of six passes before floating
a 4-yard TD pass over the middle to
fullback Ray Zellars, who was wide
open at the goal line with 10 seconds
The Irish took control in the third
quarter, stuffing the Spartans for minus-
18 yards on six carries while running 15
times for 130 yards.
Michigan State tailback Craig Tho-
mas, the Big Ten's offensive player of
the week after running for 143 yards in
a 31-14 win over Kansas, was held to
just 56 yards on 15 carries. Notre Dame
held the Spartans on 58 yards on 25
Kinder's 23-yard run set up the sec-
ondKevin Pendergast'sthree field goals
early in the third quarter for a 19-7 lead.
TailbackLee Becton burst up the middle
for 40 yards on the first play of the next
drive, setting up another field goal by
Notre Dame defensive end Brian
Hamilton forced a fumble when he
sacked quarterback Jim Miller on the
Spartans' ensuing possession. Hamilton
recovered the fumble, and freshman
Marc Edwards ran ayard for a29-7lead
seven plays later.
The Spartans had 431 yards in beat-
ing Kansas, their first season-opening
victory since 1989. They opened
strongly againstNotre Dame, marching
74 yards in 14 plays. Thomas capped
the drive with a 1-yard TD run.
McDougal, who completed 13 of 17
passes for 143 yards in the first half, led
the Irish on a touchdown drive on the
next possession. He completed passes
of 18 yards to Derrick Mayes and 21
yards to Michael Miller. Kinder who
grew up near Michigan State's East
Lansing campus, ran 14 yards to set up
a 1-yard touchdown run by freshman
Robert Farmer.

Penn State 31, Iowa 0
The Nittany Lions won their second
Big Ten game in as many tries and
improved to 3-0 overall by beating Iowa
31-0 Saturday for Coach Joe Paterno's
250th career victory. They did it with
two Paterno staples: strong running and
punishing defense.
Ki-Jana Carter rushed for 144 yards
in 19 carries and Penn State sacked
Iowa quarterback Paul B urmeister nine
times for 89 yards. The Nittany Lions
also intercepted Burmeister three times
and scored after each one, getting one
touchdown and a field goal.
With the defense dominating and
the offense capitalizing, Penn State's
first Big Ten road game was a breeze.
'We talked about wanting to win on
the road and establishing ourselves as a
good Big Ten team," Paterno said. "Ob-
viously, a win like this has got to help
Paterno, in his 28th season, is 250-
67-3 and leads active NCAA Division
I-A coaches in victories.
Iowa coach Hayden Fry is fourth in
victories with 196, but his team was no
match for Paterno's on this day. Iowa
(2-1) managed only 32 yards rushing
and was shut out for the first time since
a 28-0 loss to Ohio State in 1989. Iowa
hadn't been shut out at home since a 34-
0 loss to Michigan in 1978 - the year
before Fry became coach.
"Our line had been coming along
but then today, collectively, it was just
terrible," Fry said. "I felt sorry for our
quarterbacks. Paul stayed in there as
long as he could."
Penn State took a 10-0 halftime lead
on Craig Fayak's 20-yard field goal and
Brian O'Neal's 1-yard touchdown run.
The Nittany Lions broke it open in the
second half on a 23-yard touchdown
run by Carter and two TD' runs by
Stephen Pitts.
Northwestern 22, Boston College
Coach Gary Barnett was convinced
it was Northwestern's day.
'We were possessed. We willed the
win," Barnett said after Northwestern's
stunning 22-21 victory against Boston

College Saturday. "We were going to
win somehow, someway."
Eric Scott's 86-yard kickoff return
set up Len Williams' second touch-
down pass to Lee Gissendaner with
4:28 to play to bring the Wildcats within
apoint. They went for two and Williams-
pitched to Dennis Lundy, who ran
around the right side to take a 22-21

Notre Dame's Bobby Taylor helps the Irish to a 36-14 victory over Michigan State.

"There was no question about going W
for two," said Barnett, who had called
last year's 49-0 loss to Boston College
the worst of his career.
Northwestern, which hadn't beaten
a ranked team since upsetting Illinois in
1991, opened the season with a 27-12
loss to Notre Dame and had last week
off. "We needed the extra week to bring
ouremotional leveldown," said Barnett
of the tough loss to Notre Dame.
After the Wildcats went ahead, quar-
terback Glenn loley directed the Eagles
to the NU 23. But David Gordon's 40-
yard field goal attempt was wide right.
The Wildcats,(1-1) trailed, 14-7, at
the half, but climbed into a tie on a 21-
yard pass from Williams to Gissendaner
in the third. Foley's 28-yard TD pass
midway in the fourth gave the Eagles
(0-2) a 21-14 lead. But Scott's return on
the ensuing kickoff fired up the Wild.
It took NU just six plays to score on
Williams' 9-yard toss to Gissendaner.
Ohio State 63, Pittsburgh 28
Ohio State opened a 35-point lead
early in the second period and dealt
Pittsburgh another humiliating defeatat
home. Joey Galloway had three touch-
downs, Butler By'not'e returned the
opening kickoff 89 yards for a touch-
down and Eddie George scored on his
first two carries for the Buckeyes. Pitt
(1-2) has been outscored, 126-49, in its
two home games since Johnny Majors
returned as coach following 16 years at
OSU, 3-0 for the second consecu-
tive year, could be headed for the AP
Top 10 for the first time in coach John
Cooper's six-season tenure.
Arizona 16, Illinois 14
Linebacker Sean Harris and line-,
manJimHoffman each returned fumbles
for touchdowns as Arizona (3-0) won a
defensive battle.
Harris rambled 76 yards for a touch-
down after a first-quarter fumble and
Hoffman galloped 46 yards after a sec-
ond-quarterfumble. Arizona also scored
on a safety.
Illinois (0-2), narrowed the score to
16-14 with 4:06 remaining in the fourth,
but the final drive, which began with no
timeouts, fizzled with 1:32 left to play.
Wisconsin 28, Iowa State 7
Brent Moss (104 yards, three TDs)
and Terrell Fletcher (124 yards) took
turns running through Iowa State's de-
fense as Wisconsin won its third con-
secutive game.
The Badgers built a 21-0 halftime
lead and then scored on their first pos-
session of the third quarter to put away
the game. It's the first time in four years
the Badgers have had two runners gain
100 yards in a game. The 3-0 start is
Wisconsin's second in three years. The
Cyclones are 1-2.
Indiana 24, Kentucky 8
Jermaine Chaney scored on runs of
5 and 40 yards and Indiana's defense
produced eight sacks and two pass in-
terceptions for the Hoosiers. Indiana(3-
0) lost its bid for a second shutout of the
season when Kentucky (1-2) scored on
a 24-yard pass play with 1:24 left in the
Kansas St. 30, Minnesota 25
Andre Coleman's 72-yard kickoff
return, immediately afterMinnesota (1-
2) had taken a 25-24 lead, set up JJ.
Smith's7-yard TD run with 3:11 to play
as KSU rallied to win.
KSU is unbeaten after three games
for the third season in a row. This,
however, is the first time that one of the
three wins came on the road. Since
1990, the Wildcats are 3-13 on the road

and 17-2 at home.
