THE MATCHUPS
By ANDY DE KORTE AND KEN SUGIUR

By completing 20 of 34 passes against
Houston last Saturday, Todd Collins
became Michigan's career 6ompletion-
percentage leader at 63.0 percent.
Although they have come against mostly
creampuff opponents, in his five starts
Collins has yet to throw for under 200
yards. The Hawkeyes will be Collins' first
Big Ten opponent. -
This one is a no-brainer. Everybody's All-
American, Tyrone Wheatley, heads an
excellent group of running backs. Last
season against Iowa, Wheatley hammered
the Hawkeye defense for 224 yards and
three touchdowns. While backup Jesse
Johnson made his season debut last week,
don't bet the ranch on a retum appear-
ance.

Senior quarterback Paul Burmeister
started the year in a situation similar to
Michigan's Todd Collins. Both players had
been waiting for the opportunity to show
his worth as the starting quarterback. The
comparisons stop there. Burmeister trails
Collins' passing tally by over 300 yards and
has only one touchdown compared to
Collins' five.
The Hawkeyes have no one to counter
Heisman hopeful Tyrone Wheatley and his
438 yards. Who does? In faimess to Iowa,
it has no one getting as many attempts as
Wheatley. Ryan Terry has performed
admirably in his first season as a starter
with 246 yards and a 4.6 yard average.
Sedrick Shaw has more yards rushing
(154) than Wolverine besides Wheatley.
Wide receiver Harold Jasper was the only
returning Hawkeye who started more than
three games last season. However, senior
Anthony Dean leads in receiving yards and
receptions. Dean has 134 yards on seven
receptions to Jasper's 83 yards on six
receptions.

In one of the bigger shockers since
l'affaire Milli Vanilli, the wide receivers are
a Wolverine cornerstone. With hobbling
Derrick Alexander expected to return to
the lineup, there may not be enough balls
to go around. Mercury Hayes leads the
Big Ten in receptions and receiving yards
per game, and fellow soph Amani Toomer
isn't doing too badly either, averaging 17
yards per catch.
In one of the bigger shockers since l'affaire
Michigan wide receivers, the Michigan
offensive front is not the Wolverines'
comerstone. The young line has performed
adequately and showed improvement
against Houston, opening gaping holes in
the interior for the backs to penetrate.
Right tackle Trezelle Jenkins returns to the
starting lineup, replacing Mike Sullivan.
Facing a pass-happy 0-2 Houston team
quarterbacked by a freshman making his
first start, the defense failed to add to its
season sack total of two. Buster Stanley
and Co. have been solid against the run,
holding opposing runners to 3.5 yards a
rush. That ability may prove to be more
impor cant in the long run.
If the linebackers were a color, they would
be purple - as in the color of a bruise.
Steve Morrison, he of the ailing foot, will
sit out again. Matt Dyson, however, should
play after being carried off the field on a
cart last Saturday. In their absence, Bobby
Powers and Jarrett Irons have offered
solid play in the middle.
If the secondary wants to stake its claim
as the best defensive backfield in the
country, as it claims it wants to, it had
better start staking. Quarterbacks - two
of whom made their debuts against
Michigan, and the other was making his
second start - have connected nearly 60
percent of the time, and are averaging
nearly 207 yards through the game.
Gary Moeller may be facing the toughest
job of his career. Roundly expected to lead
Michigan to its third consecutive outright
Big Ten title, at times the Wolverines have
looked like anything but a Big Ten favorite.
He is lucky that he has a player of
Wheatley's caliber on his roster. But you
can't argue with success. Moeller has yet
to lose a Big Ten title with Michigan.
The Wolverines have the horses in the
stable to run hog wild. The dogs have been
set loose. Even though the Hawkeyes will
throw everything including the kitchen sink
and assorted appliances at the Wolverines,
they will rise to the occasion and also will
step up to the challenge. In order to get to
Pasadena, the Wolverines will have to take
it one game at a time.

Like Michigan, Iowa is another Big Ten
team used to having large, experienced
offensive lines. After graduating the entire
line, the starters average less than one
varsity letter between them. Although the
Michigan defensive line has not been
putting the hurt on the opposition, the Iowa
inexperience could really show Saturday.
Senior left tackle Bill Lange leads this
group.
Larry Blue and Mike Wells headline
lowa'a most impressive corps. Blue tied for
fourth in Big Ten sacks with 10 for 78
yards lost. Wells, a returning first-team All
Big Ten selection, was tied for second in
Big Ten tackles for loss with 17 for
negative 62 yards. The twosome could
spell big trouble for the Wolverine offensive
line.
The linebacker position joins the defensive
line as an area that gives coach Hayden
Fry little to worry about. All the starters
return. Third-year letter winner Matt Hilliard
and fellow senior Mike Dailey give this
group the experience so vital to this
position.

DOUGLAS KANTER/Daily
Heisman contender Tyrone Wheatley hopes to repeat his spectacular performance of a year ago against the Hawkeyes, in which he
gained 224 yards on only 19 carries. Wheatley's per game rushing average of 144.6 leads the Big Ten.

IOWA
Continued from page 1
Jaspen is the only returning Hawkeye
to start in more three games for the
offense last season.
Nixing the wait-a-year policy for
transfers gave Fry a more vesible
avenue for restocking the cupboards
with junior college players. He exer-
cised the option, bringing in 10 juco
transfers.
Iowa's biggest challenge became
integrating the newcomers to its sys-
tem. The loss to the Nittany Lions
proved integration is a problem for
football coaches as well as calculus
students.
Moeller has seen enough of the
Hawkeyes to watch for the newest way
Fry tries to add to the sum of his points.
"On offense, they put in some new

things," Moeller said. "With Hayden,
there is always new things on offense.
They always try to shake us up (men-
tally.)They picked up some good speed
(with the junior college transfers.)
They will be a faster team then one
you saw last year."
Although Moeller compliments Fry
and his team, Fry is a master of diplo-
macy, i.e., the crying towel.
"To be honest, we shouldn't beat
Michigan," Fry said. "That's an honest
admission."
While Fry may have more time to
reload his weapons, Moeller certainly
has a potent arsenal to work into his
game plan.
The reason Fry fears the Wolver-
ines, besides possible mental benefits
from constructing a David and Goliath
complex, is the core returners from a
team that beat the Hawkeyes by acom-

bined score of 95-52 over the past two
years.
Wheatley rolled up yardage in
mammoth chunks, 224 yards on 19
carries. Unfortunately for the
Hawkeyes, the 308 yards passing was
completed by Jim Hartlieb - one of
the many departed Hawkeyes.
Despite the fact that Michigan
holds most historical advantages in
the series against Iowa, including the
series, 32-8-4, one must consider the
1990 game - Michigan's last confer-
ence lost.
Just three seasons ago, unheralded
Iowa, having stayed home for the holi-
days the previous year, came to Ann
Arbor and beat the No. 4 Wolverines,
24-23. Fry is certainly aware of the
parallel.

Women kickers take 10th in a
row at Bowling Green, 4-1

Despite giving up an average of 28 points,
Iowa's secondary has not been giving up
the long ball. Two third-year letterwinners,
Scott Plate and Jason Olejniczak, return to
reign in receivers. Despite their speed they
may have trouble keeping up with the fresh
legs of the five-man deep Michigan
receiving corps.
Hayden Fry will be attempting to win his
200th collegiate game this Saturday. His
offense schemes are always difficult to
defend because he rarely duplicates his
game plan. He always gets the most from
his players. Besides his standing in
collegiate coaching, his personal stature
makes him an idol in the heartland and
throughout the country.
Iowa comes into the game with nothing to
lose. Well, nothing except any realistic ..
chance at winning the Big Ten. Despite the
great incentive, unless Fry pulls the rabbit
out of his hat, the offense has not been
performing well enough to outdo a mad
Michigan defense. No one stops the
Michigan offense, even one of the best
front lines in the Big Ten.

DAILY SPORTS WRITER
Time was on the side of the Bowl-
ing Green women's soccer team, but
Michigan's tardiness was not enough
help to put the host team over the top.
The Wolverines were victorious, 4-1,.
yesterday.
"It was a weird situation because
we got caught in traffic and 'arrived
late," senior captain Carrie Taylor.
"Two cars pulled in at 5:30 and that
was when we were supposed to play.
Luckily, the refs were pretty cool about
it."
"Basically, we arrived, jumped on
the field, and started playing," Michi-
gan coach Linda Hamilton said.
The Wolverines led 2-0 at half-
time, and added two more goals in the
second half before Bowling Green's
first tally.
"The first half they were just a
little overexcited," Hamilton said.
"The second half they seemed to settle
down into our system of play."
"We already had the game in hand,"

Taylor said. "There was a foul and
they had a direct kick, but other than
that, we basically dominated the whole
game."
Senior forward Alicia Stewart led
the team with two goals, which both
came in the first half. She was fol-
lowed by junior midfielder Karen
Jones and junior forward Jen
Hofmeister, a recent transfer from
Kalamazoo College.
"Every game, different people are
scoring," Taylor said. "On any given
day, anyone can step up."
Last night's victory marked the
10th in arow for the Wolverines, tying

a team record. The team also had a
streak of 10 in 1991.
Despite pulling down a victory,
team reaction was mediocre.
"I feel not having the proper warm-
up time both physically and mentally
definitely has an effect," Hamilton
said.
"We don't want to get compla-
cent," Taylor said. "We want to play
each game not like we've won 10in a
row, but like we've been losing. It's
great to have a streak, but now we
have to play harder than ever."
