touchdown pass and Terry Glenn re-
covered a fumble in the end zone
Saturday as No.6 Ohio State defeated
llinois, 20-12.
The victory snapped Ohio State's
five-year losing streak against the
Fighting Illini and also gave the Buck-
eyes (2-0 Big Ten, 5-0 overall) their
best record since 1979.
Ohio State entered the game aver-
aging 42 points, sixth in the nation,
but Illinois held the Buckeyes to a
field goal in the second half.

Johnny Johnson hit Ken Dilger
with a 33-yard touchdown pass that
would have put Illinois ahead in the
fourth quarter, but the play was wiped
out by a penalty for ineligable receiv-

last minute.

Fletcher ran for three touchdowns
Saturday as No.21 Wisconsin routed
Northwestern, 53-14, for its first 5-0
tart since 1977.
Bevell's 14th straight completion
was a 23-yard TD pass to Lee
DeRamus with 1:27 left in the second
quarter that put the Badgers ahead 27-

The Michigan offense never
seemed to get in sync against a sur-
prisingly stiff defense that had been
torched for 34 points by Central Michi-
gan two weeks ago.
The hole was dug early, as Michi-

and drove the ball 65 yards in 11
plays, capped off by a 3-yard touch-
down plunge by fullback Brice
Abrams on his first carry of the sea-
son.

ensuing kickoff opened the gates for

going, scoring on their first three pos-
sessions against Northwestern's out-
manned defensive front. The Wild-
cats, whose 27-25 victory in the 1992
finale knocked Wisconsin out of a
bowl, fell to 2-3.
Wisconsin defensive tackle Mike
Thompson made five of the Badgers'
six sacks against Northwestern quar-

Mike Greenfield as the Wildcats' ca-

upset in the making.
"I think that first turnover took a
lot out of them," said Spartan
cornerback Myron Bell ofWheatley's
fumble, popped loose by ScottGreene.
Michigan's following drive re-
sulted in a missed 47-yard field goal
attempt from Pete Elezovic, which
Michigan State turned into its final
score of the day, a Jim Miller three-
yard rollout pass that tailback Duane
Goulbourne carried into the end zone.
"A big part of the problem was
that we weren't physically or men-
tally tough on offense all day," Moeller
said. "We had no one come up with
the big play or a spark."
Michigan's big play and spark all
season has been Wheatley, who came
back down to earth after an unreal
four-game stretch to open the season.
Wheatley was limited to 33 yards
on 11 carries with a long of seven
yards. The 33-yard total was also

Michigan's net rushing total, the first
time the Michigan ground game had
been held under 50 yards since 1982.
Green jerseys seemed to surround
Wheatley in twos and threes all after-
noon, wrapping him up and control-
ling him as no other team has done
this season.
"I've had plenty of tough days, but
this would have to rank as the tough-
est," a distraught Wheatley said. "I
didn't perform well today. I didn't
run as well as I'm supposed to."
Quarterback Todd Collins also had
a particularly rough afternoon. The
junior was sacked three times-twice
by Michigan State defensive tackle
Yakini Allen - and was knocked
down on several other occasions.
Collins did complete 17-of-30
passes -including a 21-yard rope to
a diving Derrick Alexander for
Michigan's sole touchdown - but
alsowas 1-for-7onthird-downpasses.

DE KORTE
Continued from page 1
Jim Miller rarely came face to
ace with Wolverine rushers,
mspecially in the first half. The
defensive penetration by the State
lineman kept quarterback Todd
Collins scrambling most of the
game.
For all the talk before the game
about desire never being a problem
in the Michigan-Michigan State
game, it did become a problem
Saturday. Just compare third down
*onversions percentages. Michigan
State was successful on 10 of 19
attempts, Michigan could only
manage four of 12 in the same
situation.
Perles deserves some credit for
surprising Moeller with his game
plan. Miller piced apart the
Michigan secondary in a masterful
performance using eight different
ifvers. The Spartan's best
hvers, Mill Coleman and
Napoleon Outlaw, only caught one
pass apiece.
Penalties and misfires made
Wolverine drives stall faster than an
old Subaru wagon. No one stood up

and Derrick Alexander all missed
chances to convert crucial fourth
down opportunities that could have
changed the course of the game.
Even Heisman Trophy candidate
Tyrone Wheatley could not make
his highlight film on this day in
East Lansing, rushing for only 33
yards on 11 carries.
Coaches try to learn something
from every game. Game-winning
plays and loss-causing mistakes
need to be remembered every week.
After Saturday's game, Moeller did
not point to any facet of the game.
He rattled concerns about the line,
blocking mistakes and coverage
mistakes -- nothing new. Then he
offered this somber admission.
"Maybe we're just not that
good," Moeller said. "I don't
know."
When asked if this team has a
lack of desire to win, Collins looked
hopeless in responding.
"Obviously, we have a lot to
work on," Collins said. "Maybe
there is a lack of desire."
Michigan is five games into its
season and still has not played a

solid 60-minute game yet. The loss
to Notre Dame put the Wolverines
in a downward spiral. If player
confidence rebounded with the win
against Iowa, it was shattered in
Saturday's loss to the Spartans.
Despite Moeller's cautions
regarding the line, his words were
dismissed as just belly-aching about
a minimal weakness. Reality leads
'Maybe we're just not
that good. I don't
- Gary Moeller
to different conclusion now.
Although, the players said the
season can still be a success -it
was tough to gauge their sincerity.
Indeed, assuming the Spartans lose
at least two games, Michigan only
needs to win its remaining six
games to return to the Rose Bowl.
Winning next week against Penn
State will require more than hard
work and another gut check this
week in practice. The Wolverines

need a head check. Sure they
wanted to win the Big Ten
Championship when the season
started. But, that accomplishment
was incumbent in their real goal -
winning the national championship.
After five titles, one wonders if
Michigan can refocus its mental
faculties knowing it can do no more
than winning another conference
title. I wonder if they still have the
stomach for it.
