BIG TEN
Continued from page 5
tailback Eddie George ran allover Spar-
tan Stadium last week, amassing 219
yards.
Buckeye quarterback Bobby
Hoying must emerge from his shell and
return to last year's form. Hoying and
wideoutJoey Galloway have not come
close to lastyear's propensity for hook-
ing up consistently on big plays.
Nonetheless, it's difficult to see the
Boilermakers defeating the defending
co-Big Ten champions on their home
turf. It will be close, but the Buckeyes
will prevail, 20-16.
Michigan State (1-2,2-4) vs. Iowa
(0-4,2-5)
Both of these teams were blown
out last week. Spartan coach George

Perles needs to get a big game out of
quarterback Tony Banks. The junior
college transfer has been unable to
deliver since the Spartans' game
against Notre Dame.
Iowa is in the midst of a major
rebuilding period for its program. In
last week's47-7 shellacking at the hands
ofIllinois, The Hawkeyes, though, were
able to gain 187 yards rushing against a
tough Illinois defense.
The Spartans have allowed over
600 yards rushing in theirlasttwogames.
The Hawkeyes will run all over the
Spartans, 24-7.
Wisconsin (2-1-1,3-2-1)vs. Min-
nesota (0-4,2-5)
The big question in Madison this
week is whether Brent Moss will re-
turn Saturday. Do not worry Badger
fans, Wisconsin will win with or with-
out Moss this weekend at Minnesota.

Last week Minnesota was beaten
by Northwestern, who had not won a
Big Ten game since 1992.
The Gophers' inability to stop the
run will be showcased against Wiscon-
sin. Tailback Terrell Fletcher, who
has emerged from Moss's shadow
this year, should have a banner day. If
Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez con-
tinues to run the ball a blowout should
follow. The Badgers will take revenge
for what has been a disappointing
season against the overmatched Go-
phers. Wisconsin will win 52-17.
Northwestern (1-2,2-3-1) vs.In-
diana (2-1,4-1)
Northwestern finally gotatasteof a
Big Ten win last week in its win over
Minnesota.
The Wildcats' hopes rest on the
shoulders of running back Dennis
Lundy, who had a career day of 213
yards last week. Indiana's defense,
led by outside linebacker Alfonso
Thurman, is just too strong to allow
Lundy another 200 yard game.
Freshman running back, Alex
Smith is following in the footsteps of
former Hoosier greats Vaughn Dunbar
and Anthony Thompson. Smith
should have another solid perfor-
mance against the Wildcats.
Indiana, at home, after a bye, will
have an easy time in dismissing North-
western, 30-10.

SCHOOL OF THE ARTS

Study Film at NYU This Spring
Each spring, we offer students of all
educational backgrounds the opportunity to
learn the fundamentals of filmmaking at the
Tisch School's renowned Department of Film.
During an intensive one semester program,
visiting students immerse themselves in the
study of film while living in the heart of
Greenwich Village, New York's legendary
center for the arts.

By MIKE HELFGOT
The Daily lhlni
Maybe the Illinois coaching staff
knew what it was doing with Johnny
Johnson all along.
Sure the coaches will stick to their
"we can win with both quarterbacks"
line, but Johnson has emerged from
an early season quarterback derby
with Scott Weaver to become one of
the top quarterbacks in the Big Ten.
An admittedly subpar 19-of-35,
one touchdown performance against
Purdue leftmany wondering if Weaver
was only a mistake away from the
starting job.
But Johnson masterfully engi-
neered the offense in a must-win situ-
ation against Ohio State, taking charge
and proving what he wanted to hear
all along: That Johnny Johnson, you
the man!
Even coach Lou Tepper, who was
furious with Johnson after his confu-
sion in the season-opening loss to
Washington State and has given
Weaver every chance to win the job
since, is now raving about Johnson.
"Johnny Johnson has matured
greatly over the past two or three
weeks. He seems to have much better
command of the offense," Tepper said
after the 24-10 win in Columbus. "If
he can continue to put forth that kind
of steady effort, he certainly can be a
very accomplished quarterback."
Tepper was sure to be diplomatic,
though.
"We're also pleased with the devel-
opment of Scott Weaver," he said, "and
feel fortunate to have twoquarterbacks
with whom we can play and win."
But there can no longer be any
doubt who the Illini's main man is.
Johnson's 16-of-21, 224-yard, two
touchdown performance against the
Buckeyes earned him Big Ten Player
of the Week honors.
And even more impressive than
the numbers was the fashion with which
they were compiled. Both his touch-
down passes came on third down, a
down he flourished on all half, com-
pleting all four passing attempts for 86
yards when the Buckeyes were threat-
ening to take the ball away.
For the season, Johnson has com-
pleted 64.5 percent of his 141 at-
tempts for 934 yards and five touch-
downs. He has not thrown an inter-

Illinois signal caller Johnny Johnson, who has rebounded from a slow start,
will lead the Illini attack against Michigan in Champaign Saturday.
