Only one Ohio State wide receiver,
Cris Carter, has ever achieved All-
America status. In 1994, Joey Gallo-
way may become the second.
As an All-Big Ten first-team se-
lection last season, Galloway was
Ohio State's go-to man, amassing 11
receiving touchdowns as well as two
scores via the ground. This season, he
remains the big play threat.
However, opposing defenses could
not always concern themselves with
the multi-talented receiver in 1993.
Instead the focus went toward halting
running back Raymont Harris, who
totalled 1,344 yards, allowing Gallo-
way to get open.
This year Gal-
loway, the Big
Ten's best re-
K. ceiver, will not be
able torely on Har-
ris, who graduated.

time to get him the ball, because the
Buckeyes must deal with the loss of
four starters on the offensive line,
including guard Jason Winrow.
Although he will have to count on
some true freshmen to fill those spaces,
Ohio State coach John Cooper retains
ajunior who takes up a lot of space -
Small mountains could hide be-
hind Stringer if they wanted. A lead-
ing candidate for the Outland and
Lombardi trophies, Stringer stands 6-
foot-5 and weighs 315 pounds. That
size enables him to open up holes big
enough for a jet.
While Stringer remains in Colum-
bus, Cooper must deal with the loss of
a "Daddy." But this wasn't any ordi-
nary father who knew best, except
where the best deal was.
All-American Dan "Big Daddy"
Wilkinson left school after a fine
sophomore season, which saw him
earn conference honors as defensive
player of the year, for the NFL. The
decision turned out well for Wilkinson
when the Cincinnati Bengals drafted
Wilkinson with the first overall pick.
However, his departure, as well as
those of defensive end Jason Simmons
and three of four starting defensive
backs, thins out the Buckeye defen-
sive corps which held opponents to
16.1 points per game. The secondary
will get a mighty workout this season
being so inexperienced
"We've got a solid defensive foot-
ball team," Cooper says.
Linebacker Lorenzo Styles is part
of the reason Cooper sees the glass as
half full rather than half empty. Styles
returns as the team's leading tackler
(84 solo/33 assisted). With his pro-
game build (6 feet 2, 244 pounds)
Styles commands the middle on de-
fense and is one of the conference's
As Styles pummels the opposi-
tion, Cooper receives the same kind
of treatment from the Buckeye faith-
ful. Despite a 10-1-1 record and share
of the Big Ten title in 1993, fans
called for Cooper's dismissal for one
The Buckeyes lost to Michigan -
again - but this time the defeat cost
them a trip to the Rose Bowl. Since
Cooper's arrival at Ohio State in 1988,
the Buckeyes have posted a 0-5-1
mark against the Wolverines.

Expectations start to greet 'Cats
Last season was to be one of great
things for Northwestern. The Wild-
cats actually led Notre Dame in the
third quarter. They upset Boston Col-
lege and beat Wake Forest.
Things were looking promising
with a 2-1 mark. Then the Big Ten
season arrived, as did a winless sea-
son in conference competition.
This season might be even tougher
for third-year coach Gary Barnett with
the losses of his two main offensive
weapons - quarterback Len Will-
iams and wide receiver/returner Lee
"When you lose two guys you rely
on it's going to take its toll," offen-
sive lineman Matt O'Dwyer says. "We
need guys to step up. If we improve
the running game we'll be all right."
O'Dwyer is certainly one of those
who can help the ground game, mov-
ing from tackle to guard this year.
Elected to the All-Big Ten second
team by the media in 1993, O'Dwyer
has the opportunity to be the first
Northwestern player to receive All-
America honors since punter John
Kidd in 1983 and only the third to in
the past 23 years.
"I've never been around anyone
with better skills and work ethic,"
Barnett said. "He will be the best
offensive lineman I've been around."
Despite O'Dwyer's return as well
as those of eight others on offense, the
Wildcats must deal with an unsure
Tim Hughes, ajunior college trans-
fer, came so late to the Wildcats that
the Northwestern Sports Information
Department could not include a biog-
raphy of him in the team media guide.
With an inexperienced backup, Steve
Schnur, Barnett will use his running
game more than he has in recent years.
The onus of carrying the ball falls
upon tailback Dennis Lundy, the
Wildcats' leading rusher the past three
:es nsLu LndyJneeds . 8f yards tow
surpass Bob Christian as
Northwestern's all-time leading
ground gainer. That might be more
difficult than it sounds because Lundy
has never rushed for more than 688
yards in any of his three seasons.
But at 5-foot-9,187 pounds, Lundy
cannot be relied upon to supply all the
offense in the Wildcats' three-receiver
attack, despite his deft ability as a
pass catcher out of the backfield.
Defensively, eight starters return
led by safety William Bennett. With
Bennett roaming the secondary North-
western can hold its own against solid
passing attacks. The Wildcats held
opponents to the fourth fewest pass-
ing yards per game in the conference.
But Northwestern has difficulty
handling powerful ground games as
well as pressuring the quarterback
(12 sacks in 1993). Things won't get
any better with loss of outside line-
backer and team MVP Steve Shine to
provide support against the run.
O'Dwyer says a bowl game
"would be exciting." With a non-con-
ference schedule featuring Notre
Dame and Stanford to go along with a
Big Ten slate that includes back-to-
back games against Ohio State and
Wisconsin, O'Dwyer and friends will
watch the bowl games from the com-
fort of their living rooms.
