Jackson, Notre Dame option
attack hitting on all cylinders

SOUTH BEND (AP) - This is
the Jarious Jackson that Bob Davie
has been looking for.
Jackson became the first Notre
Dame quarterback to rush for three
touchdowns since Heisman Trophy
winner Paul Ilornung did it in 1956 as
the Irish beat Stanford, 35-17, on
Saturday.
lie also led the No. 22 Irish (3-1)
to their only decent first half of the
season, as he showed off tools he's
been displaying in practice all year.
"We saw it in training camp. We
see it just about every day out there,"
Davie said. "I think you're starting to
see his passing game and the strength
of his arm.
"Now that he's getting a little
more confidence and his feet on the
ground, I think you can see that he
can throw the football extremely
well."
Stanford coach Tyronne
Willingham said he knew Jackson
could throw the ball well. le just did-
n't think the rookie quarterback
would be so accurate, connecting on
Il-of-I5 attempts with one intercep-
tion for 168 yards.
Jackson was also 6-of-8 in the
first half after completing just 39.5
percent of his first-half passes in
Notre Dame's first three games.
"But he also brings the running
game and now the option to the
offense, which makes Notre Dame
even harder to defend," Willingham
said. "They were able to mix it up and

never allowed us to turn them into a
one-dimensional team. Any time you
can add another dimension to your
offense, it changes all preparation for
the game."
Jackson and the Irish kept
Stanford (1-4) off-balance the entire
first half on Saturday, scoring on their
first three drives.
That included Jackson's 22-yard
touchdown run in the first quarter that
gave Notre Dame its first, first-half
lead of the season.
After averaging just 5.6 yards
rushing in the first half in the first
three games, Jackson picked up 75
yards on 11 carries.
lie then hit the 100-yard mark in
the second half, including scoring
runs of seven and five yards, as the
Irish rolled to 309 yards rushing.
"I like the way we used the option
and combined the power game with
the option and quarterback runs,"
Davie said. "We have a pretty good
package, especially when you add the
great throws that Jarious Jackson
made.
"We are becoming a balanced
offense. It isn't easy to defend an
offense with so many different
weapons."
Jackson showed a poise that he's
sometimes lacked this season, after
the Irish took over at their own one
yard line early in the third quarter.
After plunging up the middle for
two yards to give Notre Dame some
running room, tie calmly guided the

game we really didn't run down every
ball."
As an individual, Limauro has been as
strong as any player in the Big Ten. But
Michigan's main weakness lies in its
inability to play as a team.
"Our focus has to be put back on play
ing team offense and team defense,"
Lewis said. "Our success came last sea-
son by playing as a team. This season;
we have the same team, and have great
individual talent. But to make the BigO
Ten tournament, we must play together."
Several players say the team is due to
break out of its slump.
"Numbers aren't everything," Lewis
said. "Physically, we are the best team in
the Big Ten. Hopefully, come tourney
time, everyone will realize this.'
While the Wolverines lack a trulycohe-
sive unit, they plan to improve on all
aspects ofltheir game. They currently
stand at sixth in the Big Ten, a position
upon which they would greatly like to
improve. The senior leadership of
Limauro and Lewis will be imperative if
they are to equal last season's success.

The Michigan soccer team is going to have to make a run at the rest of Its conference rivals If it wants to repeat last year's
success. The Wolverines are currently sixth In the Big Ten.

Georgia seeks revenge
against Vols, Fulmer

Georgia feels it has a score to settle on Saturday against Tennessee. Georgia coach Jim Donnan accused Tennessee coach
Phillip Fulmer of running up the score in last year's 38-13 Volunteer victory.

Michigan Students, Faculty & Staff ... Are You Ready to Take the

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A year ago,
Georgia coach Jim Donnan stormed off
the field at Neyland Stadium, convinced
that Tennessee ran up the score.
The Bulldogs have a chance to get
even Saturday.
No. 4 Tennessee (4-0) visits seventh-
ranked Georgia (4-0) for a game that
will have major ramifications in the
Southeastem Conference race and pos-
sibly the road to the national champi-
onship.
The first top 10 showdown at
Sanford Stadium since 1983 is enticing
enough, but the stakes are even higher
because of the bad blood that clearly
exists between Donnan and his counter-
part at Tennessee, Phillip Fulmer.
It all goes back to last year's meeting
in Knoxville, won 38-13 by the
Volunteers. Donnan was visibly upset,
shouting in Fulmer's direction, when
Heisman Trophy candidate Peyton
Manning remained in the game with the
outcome already decided. Manning
wound up throwing four passes in the
final five minutes, including a touch-

down.
Yesterday, Donnan made a thot-
oughly unconvincing effort to downplay
his feud with Fulmer.
"I don't have any disagreement with
him," Donnan insisted. "He's got to
coach his team, I've got to coach mine.
That happened and it's over with and
we're playing this year. That's all I ha
to say about that:'
But Donnan has refused to apolo-
gize for accusing Fulmer of running up
the score when the coaches met on the
field after last year's game.
"I don't regret what I said," Donnan
said during a conference call Sunda.
"What I regret is the fact that he made it
public after I whispered it in his ear."
Fulmer has defended his actions,
saying Manning would not have thrown
if Georgia had not blitzed.
"I don't think that has any place,
this ballgame," Fulmer said Tuesday.
"He's not going to play a down and nei-
ther am I."
The Georgia players, already smart-
ing from seven straight losses to the
Volunteers, have enough motivation
without concerning themselves with
whether Tennessee tried to run up the
score last season.
"The coaches do their thing, we
our thing," Georgia defensive tackle
Paul Snellings said. "All we can do is
what our coach tells us to do, We're not
going to stick our noses into their little
feud. That's between them."
Teammate Kirby Smart agreed.
"I understand the situation," the
safety said. "I understand coach
Donnan's perspective on it. I understanid
coach Fulmer's perspective on it. I
understand Peyton's perspective on it.
Peyton was trying to win the Heism#
Trophy.
"I just worry about how Iplay. The
way ) played last year was terrible, I
don't worry-about all that other stuff.
What goes on between the coaching
staffs, that's the coaches' job to worry
about. Not ours'."
Georgia' hasn't beaten the
Volunteers since 1988, and the 25-
point margin a year ago w
Tennessee's largest since a 38-6 victo-
ry in 1993.
