WISCONSI N
Continued from page 1
two-game losing streak and little hope
for a bowl. People were calling the
Badgers' Rose Bowl win over UCLA
a year ago a fluke. Now coach Barry
Alvarez is receiving compliments from
back-slapping bowl officials. #
"This was an important win for our
football program," Alvarez said.
"Maybe more so than the Rose Bowl."
Alvarez was not the only one with
such a strong reaction to the Badgers'
victory, their second in a row over the
Wolverines. Wisconsin beat Michi-
gan, 13-10, in Madison last year. The
two teams don't play in 1995.
"This was a huge win, bigger than
the Rose Bowl," junior quarterback
Darell Bevell said. "I can never lose to
the Michigan Wolverines. There aren't
too many quarterbacks who can say
that."
As for the Wolverines, they can't
say much. Unlike previous losses to
Colorado and Penn State, this defeat
left Michigan (3-2, 5-3) with no ex-
cuses.
" "You can't have a defense that
gives up 31 points," Moeller said. "I
don't care if they have the ball on the
10-yard line 10 straight times. We
were just terrible. It was obvious."
The return of tailback Brent Moss,
the reigning Big Ten MVP, keyed
Wisconsin's victory. Moss missed the
previous two games because of an
ankle injury. The Badgers tied Purdue
and lost to Minnesota in the star's
absence.
Against Michigan, Moss ran for 107
yards, including 63 in the first half.
"I definitely gave the team a lift,"
Moss said. "I think this was the best
game we've played by far. I think it
was bigger than the Rose Bowl."
Moss's three-yard touchdown run
with just over nine minutes remaining
in the game put Wisconsin up 31-19,
effectively sealing the victory.

Michigan had closed to within
24-19 on a Jay Riemersma reception
late in the third quarter. That was the
Wolverines' only score of the second
half.
But the first half was filled with
offense for both teams.
Wisconsin got on the board first
with a field goal, but Michigan's Seth
Smith returned the ensuing kickoff
100 yards to give the Wolverines the
lead.
But Wisconsin quickly struck back
with a Bevell touchdown pass to split
end Tony Simmons, putting the Bad-
gers up by four.
Tyrone Wheatley then gained 24
of his game-high 132 yards on a touch-
down run in the second quarter. Wis-
consin responded with a late first-
half drive that culminated with a two-
yard touchdown pass from Bevell to
J.C. Dawkins
"Coach just wanted me to keep
the ball," Bevell said. "He didn't want
any turnovers."
That, ultimately, proved to be the
difference in this game. Michigan's
Todd Collins and Jason Carr com-
bined to throw three interceptions -
although one of Collins' errant throws
came on the last play of the first half.
Wheatley also lost a fumble while
Michigan was driving in the fourth
quarter.
Carr played because Collins was
wheeled off the field with a hip pointer
midway through the first quarter. He
returned in the second period.
But even Collins' return could not
ignite the Wolverines. Michigan, in
Moeller's words, "played without
emotion." Wisconsin, on the other
hand, played inspired football.
"I don't know if I've ever been
more proud of a group of kids,"
Alvarez said. "No one other than the
people in the locker room gave them
chance. I just wanted our football
team back playing like they were
capable. I wasn't asking for anything
special."
