When that didn't work and the Badgers' first two
drives stalled in four plays each, McCullough got his
chance. He gained eight yards on his first carry, the
most Wisconsin had gained on any play to that point,
and he took off from there.E
Alvarez gave him the ball 10 times on the Badgers'
next drive - during which the Badgers ran 14 plays - n
and McCullough responded by gaining 44 yards. The
Badgers ended up kicking a field goal to reduceh
Michigan's lead to 13-3, getting the crowd back into I
the game and stealing a bit of momentum.X
McCullough broke a 22-yard run to open the sec-
ond half. Samuel took over from there, running the
option often and eventually scoring a touchdown on a x
one-yard run to put his team within a touchdown of
the lead. The option "killed us," said Michigan cor-{
nerback Charles Woodson, who slipped late in the
fourth quarter and gave up just the second touchdown
reception to a Michigan opponent this season.
The Wolverines were able to recover from Samuel's
score with an 85-yard drive that culminated in a field .
goal. Michigan coach Lloyd Carr called that the "key
to the game," but the damage was done already. Poor
tackling doomed Michigan to its second-worst defen-
sive performance this fall.
"We had trouble tackling and made mistakes we can't
afford to make," Steele said. "Wisconsin played hard; WARREN ZINN/Daily

ple like that, they're going to make their yards." Leonard Taylor caught him from behind on the one-yard line after a 39-yard catch.

COLUMBUS (AP) - Pepe
Pearson ran for two touchdowns in his
final home game and Ahmed
Plummer returned an interception 83
yards for a score as No. 4 Ohio State
set the stage for next week's show-
down with No. 1 Michigan by beating
Illinois, 41-6.
The Buckeyes (6-1, 10-1) need a
victory at Michigan next Saturday to
grab a share of the conference title. A
victory would also keep alive hopes of
a return appearance in the Rose Bowl,
where the Buckeyes beat Arizona
State, 20-17, to finish No. 2 last sea-
son.
The loss was the 16th in a row for
the Illini (0-7, 0-10), the longest
streak in school history. They have
also lost their last 13 conference
games, the last 12 games against
ranked teams and haven't won on the
road in more than two years.
The victory pushed Ohio State to
700-274-53 in its 108th season.
No. 6 PENN STATE 42, No. 23
PURDUE 17
Penn State's defense took care of
yet another Purdue comeback, and
Curtis Enis did the rest.
Enis rushed for 186 yards and three
touchdowns and caught a 67-yard pass
from Mike McQueary for a fourth
score on Saturday as the sixth-ranked
Nittany Lions rebounded from their
worst home loss under coach Joe
Paterno and beat No. 19 Purdue, 42-
17.
The Boilermakers (5-2 Big Ten, 7-3
overall) trailed by I I and were poised
for another comeback after scoring on
Billy Dicken's second touchdown pass
early in the final period. They threat-
ened again on the next series before
Jason Collins intercepted a pass at the
Penn State nine-yard line and returned
it 53 yards.
It took only three plays for Penn
State (5-1, 8-1) to score, and a 29-yard
touchdown run by Enis with 7:20
remaining put the game out of reach.

NORTHWESTERN 15, No.22 IowA 14
Brian Musso made a one-handed
catch and turned it into a go-ahead,
40-yard touchdown play as
Northwestern beat No. 22 Iowa, 15-
14, keeping the Hawkeyes from quali-
fying for a bowl berth.
Iowa (3-4, 6-4) must defeat
Minnesota next week to qualify for
postseason play, because one of the
Hawkeyes' victories this season was
over Division I-AA Northern Iowa.
Northwestern, after back-to-back
Big Ten titles, finished 5-7 overall and
3-5 in the Big Ten. The Wildcats
stopped the Hawkeyes twice inside
the 30-yard line in the final quarter to
preserve the victory.
Iowa missed four field goals on a
snowy, blustery day, including a 47-
yard attempt by Chad Johnson with
2:57 left.
Earlier in the quarter, Iowa went on
fourth-and-three from the Wildcats'
27-yard line, but Anwawn Jones drove
quarterback Randy Reiners out of
bounds for no gain.
Iowa's Tavian Banks gained 169 on
30 carries and scored two touch-
downs, becoming the school's season

rushing leader and career touchdown
leader, passing Sedrick Shaw.
MINNESOTA 24, INDIANA 12
Another game without a touchdown
for Indiana was all Minnesota needed
to give first-year coach Glen Mason
his first Big Ten victory.
Cory Sauter threw two first-quarter
touchdown passes and ran for a
clinching score with 2:50 remaining
as the Golden Gophers held on for a
24-12 victory, snapping a seven-game
losing streak.
Minnesota (1-6, 3-8) won for just
the fourth time in its last 34 confer-
ence games.
The Hoosiers (1-6, 2-8) came in
with just one offensive touchdown in
their last five games and managed
only four Andy Payne field goals.
That matched a school record, but it
still was a disappointment considering
the Hoosiers had 443 total yards, their
second-highest total of the season and
well above the 270 yards they aver-
aged through their first 10 games.
Indiana was shut out in the second
half even though each of its first five
drives reached Minnesota territory.

victories in 1970, 1972, 1974 and 1975, and a
tie in 1973, sent the Buckeyes to Pasadena and
the Wolverines home (except a trip to the 1976
Orange Bowl).
The scene is set for the Wolverines to cap a
historic regular season. Every November, even
if a Rose Bowl bid is not on the line for either

deemed a success with a victory in this game.

Series: Michigan leads all-time 53-34-6
The Michigan-Ohio State rivalry has grown in intensity in the 1990s. Each of
the past two years, the Buckeyes have entered the game ranked No. 2 in the
nation and undefeated. The Wolverines beat the Buckeyes each time, ending
their national title hopes, and destroyed their Rose Bowl hopes in 1995. The
Buckeyes, however, have hurt Michigan's plans for Pasadena, especially in the
early 1970s. The Buckeyes ended the Wolverines' undefeated seasons in 1970,
'72 and '74, and a tie between the two in '73 sent Ohio State to the Rose
Bowl and Michigan home.
