Icers square
.off against
Buckeyes,
Lakers
By MELANIE SCHUMAN
Daily Hockey Writer
In any competition involving
Michigan and Ohio State, rivalry is a
*key motivational factor. Take that,
throw in a little Lake Superior State,
and if you're the Michigan hockey
team, you've got inspiration.
Tonight and tomorrow night, the
Wolverines (1-1 CCHA, 3-2 overall)
will host these two teams, respec-
tively, in what will be a test of what
Michigan can really handle.
Ohio State has started this season
*much the way it ended last - as the
basement dweller in the CCHA with a
1-5-0 record. Lifetime, Michigan
leads the series 32-18-5, defeating the
Buckeyes in the team's last 17
matchups.
With both Mike Knuble and War-
ren Luhning expected to return this
weekend, the Wolverines will dress
their healthiest lineup this season,
according to coach Red Berenson.
*Freshman Marty Turco is expected to
start in goal.
In lieu of veterans, Ohio State will
dress eight freshmen who are still

Michigan challenges
an improved Purdue

By MICHAEL ROSENBERG
Daily Football Writer
Though football experts around
the country continue to deny it, sources
close to the Purdue football team have
confirmed what has been rumored for
several weeks: the Boilermakers have
a winning record.
It's true. And that means Michi-
gan won't have such an easy team
bouncing back from last week's dis-
appointing 31-19 loss to Wisconsin.
Here are the matchups:
Michigan running game against
Purdue run defense:
Tshimanga Biakabutuka returns
for the Wolverines, combining with
Tyrone Wheatley to give Michigan a
dynamic tailback combination. The
two will be helped by the fact that the
entire offensive line is healthy. When
he isn't bothered by injuries, Wheatley
is nearly unstoppable. Biakabutuka
isn't in that class yet, but he and
Wheatley should each roll up plenty
of yardage against the Boilermakers.
Advantage:
Michigan passing game against
Purdue pass defense:
Quarterback Todd Collins had his
first bad game of the year Saturday
against the Badgers, but that can be
partly blamed on a hip pointer he
suffered in the first quarter. Collins is
completely healthy, and should be
back to his usual efficient ways to-
morrow. The question is, can he find
Mercury Hayes, Seth Smith and

Amani Toomer in the end zone, or
will Michigan continue to settle for
field goals?
Look for the Wolverines to finally
score some touchdowns.
Advantage:
Purdue running game against
Michigan run defense:
Mike Alstott may be the best run-
ner of any fullback in the nation. He's
a load to tackle, and teammate Corey
Rogers gives the Boilermakers a dev-
astating tandem.
Michigan's Steve Morrison and
Jarrett Irons are two of the best run-
stopping linebackers in the nation.
Trent Zenkewicz, Jason Horn and
Tony Henderson are all solid on the
defensive line. So why can't Michi-
gan shut down the run? This defense
is better on paper than on the field.
Advantage:
Purdue passing game against
Michigan pass defense:
With Purdue quarterback Rick
Trefzgerout for the year, Billy Dicken
will get the start after doing well
against Iowa. He's untested, but
Michigan's pass defense has failed
most of its tests.
Advantage:
Prediction:
Michigan 38, Purdue 21

Michigan will depend on Mercury Hayes and the rest of the Wolverine receivers in Saturday's contest with Purdue.

Wolverines face top conference foes at Cliff Keen

By DAVID ROTHBART
Daily Sports Writer
TrumanoverDewey. Villanovaover
Georgetown. BusterDouglas overMike
Tyson. These are a few of the greatest
upsets of all time.
This weekend, the Michigan
women's volleyball team hopes to add
its name to the list. The Wolverines (1-
11 Big Ten, 5-18 overall) host No. 5
Ohio State tonight and No.3 Penn State
on Saturday.
*Michigan coach Greg Giovanazzi
said it is possible for the Wolverines
to shock a national power. However,
he set more realistic goals for his team.
"We're focusing on improving our
level ofplay,"Giovanazzi said. "We want
to improve individually and as a team."
Michigan showed signs of coming
to life last weekend in close losses to
Purdue and Illinois. But it will take a
emarkableeffort againstthisweekend's
joes to come away with a victory.
The Buckeyes (11-1, 18-2) swept
Michigan in their first meeting this year.
Ohio State's up-tempo scoring attack
has overwhelmed opponents all sea-
son. Junior middle blocker Jenny Jack-
son leads the Big Ten in hitting effi-
ciency with a.422 average. Senior set-
terLauraDavisranks second nationally

in assists with 14.37 per game.
Giovanazzi said his squad must
get the Buckeyes' offense off -bal-
ance to have a chance to score some
points. While Ohio State boasts acorps
of solid, young players, most of the
Wolverines' attention will be focused
on Jackson and Davis.
Saturday night, Michigan takes on
Penn State, last year's NCAA runner-
up. The Lady Lions (11-1, 22-1) run a
slower offense than the Buckeyes, but
are equally as strong. Giovanazzi termed
Penn State's scoring attack "deliberate,
Vince Lombardi-style."
The Nittany Lions are not a team

that makes mistakes. The Wolverines
must come out loose and aggressive
and try to force errors, Giovanazzi said.
Michigan has never defeated Penn
State.
Ohio State and Penn State have
dominated the Big Ten this season.
"This is the first year two teams are
so clearly above everyone else,"
Giovanazzi said. "With the third
through eleventh teams, anyone can
beat anyone."
While the Wolverines have been
continually drubbed by their confer-
ence opponents, team morale is high,
Giovanazzi said.

"Our outlook is positive. We
haven't had success in the win col-
umn, but we're improving."
