Nebraska, Kansas State
to battle in Manhattan

Women's swimmers
to battle each other

LINCOLN, Neb: (AP)- If undefeat-
ed Kansas State has a weakness, Tom
Osborne can't see it.
"We've got to do everything well to
beat them," he said.
On Saturday, No. 6 Nebraska plays
the No. 16 Wildcats in Manhattan,
Kansas. It will be the Cornhuskers' first
real test since a 19-0 defeat to Arizona
State on Sept. 21 that ended the
Cornhuskers' 26-game winning streak.
Nebraska responded with a 65-9 beat-
ing of Colorado State last week.
. Kansas State (4-0) senses the
Cornhuskers may be vulnerable. And
that gives defensive tackle Jason Peter
some incentive.
Commented Peter: "We have to let
people know we haven't fallen off the
face of the planet even though we had
that loss."
The Cornhuskers may be confident,
but they face Kansas State quarterback
Brian Kavanagh who tied a school
record with four touchdown passes in a
34-7 win over Rice on Sept. 21.

The Wildcats' are looking for their
first win over Nebraska since 1968.
Kansas State was 5-0 in 1993, then
lost to Nebraska. The Huskers ended a 4-
0 Wildcat streak in 1994. Last year
Kansas State was 6-0 until losing 49-25
in Lincoln.
The Wildcats come into this game
with a strong defense led by defensive
back Chris Canty. The unit led the nation
last year in total defense, allowing 250.8
yards a game.
Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost has
not overwhelmed opponents in his first
three starts, and he is not underestimat-
ing Kansas State.
"They're awfully good," he said. "I
wouldn't want to compare them with
anyone else."
Osborne said much depends on a
Nebraska offensive line that has not been
inspired this season, and the health of an
injured secondary.
"I think we will play well at Kansas
State, Osborne said. "I don't see any
reason why we won't."

The 1996-97 Michigan women's
swimming and diving season doesn't
officially start for another two weeks, but
coach Jim Richardson's swimmers will
take their marks on the starting blocks
this weekend at Canham Natatorium.
Saturday at 9:30 a.m., the Wolverines
will hear the starting gun for the first
time this year.
The intrasquad meet will help
Michigan prepare for a season that spans
six months, starlina with Michigan State
and includian - our trips to California.
For the de'ending Big Ten champions,
the meet should help the Wolverines ease
into a long and grueling season as they
begin their quest for their Ii1th consecu-
tive conference title.
"This (meet) will familiarize them
with the collegiate dual meet format,"
Richardson said. "They won't go into the
first meet cold. It is somewhat like a foot-
ball scrimmage."
Even though this will be the first time
this season that Michigan will have a
chance to swim in a competitive atmos-
phere, the Wolverines have already been
splashing around in the pool for a while.
Michigan has been warmingup for the
meet since the Wolverines first started

The Michigan women's swimming team won't have to look hard for its first oppo-
nent of the season. The Wolverines will hit the pool Saturday to face each other in
an intrasquad meet.

practicing Sept. 9.
Despite the fact that Michigan will be
facing no opponent, Richardson expects
his swimmers to be emotionally chargc,
and show some spirit.
"I expect them to be enthusiastic,
which they will be." Richardson said.
While the intrasquad meet will be a
sort of mini pep rally. it will also give the
coaches a chance to become better
acquainted with their team this year.
"It gives 'us the opportunity to see
them race, paticularly the freshmen. It
gives us an opportunity to see how they
are doini:. Richardson said. "It is a
learning experience for us too" s
There will be five freshmen on Whom
Richardson will be-focusing this week-
end. Leading the newest recruiting class
is Shannon Shakespeare. a Canadian
"(The freshmen are) at different stages
right now," Richardson said.
"Shakespeare will fit in very easily. She
is a world-class elite athlete who has
experience. The other lour are at deve-
opmental stages."
So ir, Richardson has nothing but
praise for his newcomers.
"They have good work ethic and are
putting in the right eftort at the right
times." he said.

cornered animal and fought back from
deficit. Michigan put pressure on the
Spartans from the onset.
In the game's finest offensive
sequence, Michigan's Bree Derr sent a
ball across the field to an open Lindsay
Babbitt for a picture-perfect goal, tying
the game at two.
The goal was the second in two
games for Babbitt, who got to start fol-
lowing her solid play off the bench
against Penn State.
The Wolverines kept up the pressure
on the Spartans, as senior Meredith
Franden sent a shot to the back of the
net, through a serum of players. Franden
gave Michigan its first lead in more than
a week, 3-2.
Michigan State wasn't done yet, as
Jill Luscher tied the game yet again.
But just as she did against Ball State,
Michigan's Flachs stepped up and
scored the game-winning goal, this tin
with just 3:24 left in the contest.
Regardless, Flachs refuses to take all
the credit.
"It's the team that is playing well she
said *'Once we get that team cama-
raderie we (play) great. Today was a
team effort, and look what happened."
