By Nick Felzen
For the Daily
After strong matches in Austin,
Texas, and Lexington, Ky., the
Michigan men's tennis team won't
have to travel quite as far this week-
end.
The Wolverines are competing in
the Rolex Regional, which will be
held in East Lansing. The three-day
event starts tomorrow and finishes on
Monday.
Michigan coach Brian Eisner sees
the Regional as vital.
The Rolex Regional "is the most
important tournament of the fall for
the region," Eisner said. "You get to
see where we are with respect to
everyone else."

What marks this regional from
other tournaments is the quality of the
competition. The best in the midwest
will be on the courts this weekend.
"This is probably going to be the
strongest regionals we have had in a
Fong time," Eisner said. "Twelve play-
ers from this region qualified for the
All-American main draw, way more
than in previous years."
The tournament is also important
because the two singles finalists and
the winning doubles team automati-
cally qualify for the National Indoors
in Dallas.
"If we perform real well it would be
even more of an accomplishment
because the competition in this tour-
nament is so strong," Eisner said.

THE MATCHUPS
MICHIGAN PASSING OFFENSE VS. PENN STATE PASSING DEFENSE
Tal Streets is 6-foot-4 inches. Penn State's tallest starting
defensive back Is 5-11. What does that mean? A lot of
alley-oop passes to Streets from Tom Brady.
Edge: Michigan
----------------- - - E
MICHIGAN RUSHING OFFENSE VS. PENN STATE RUSHING DEFENSE
With the Michigan rushing game sputtering In recent
weeks - it lost 23 yards last week -- Linebacker U
should have a field day.
Edge: Penn State
PENN STATE PASSING OFFENSE VS. MICHIGAN PASSING DEFENSE
The Penn State passing combination of quarterback Kevin Thompson and
wideout Chafie Fields have been lethal lately. But Michigan returns safe-
ty Marcus Ray from a six-game suspension.
Edge: Even
aaaaaaa---- aaagaaa ,;a..a--w--------- ------- --..------;----
PENN STATE RUSHING OFFENSE VS. MICHIGAN PASSING DEFENSE
If Curtis Enis had stayed in Happy Valley, this would be a
pretty good matchup. But Cordell Mitchell doesn't have
the skill to match up with an aggressive, rugged
Michigan defense.
Edge: Michigan
SPECIAL TEAMS
Jason Vinson made up for his end zone fumble with timely punts last week-
end. Jay Feely has settled the placekicking situation. Penn State's kickers
are pretty similar to Michigan's in skill and execution.
Edge: Even
...............-......CC..CCCCCCCCC~CCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
INTANGIBLES
Michigan is undefeated in the Big Ten. Penn State is the.
ninth-ranked team in the country. The Nittany Lions are also
favored at Michigan Stadium, something that is quite rare.
Edge: Penn State
PREDICTION: MICHIGAN 18, PENN STATE 13

MATCHUPS
Continued from Page 8
SPECIAL TEAMS:
Fumbling a punt into the end zone
last week was the worst thing punter
Jason Vinson could have done. But he
nailed kicks late in the game, setting up
Michigan's game-winning safety. As for
Penn State's special teams, they kick for
a little more yardage on punts, have con-
verted two more field goals and are near-
ly as good as Michigan on extra points.
EDGE: EVEN

INTANGIBLES:
No. 22 Michigan is supposed to be
ranked in the top 10, but No. 9 Penn
State is. Michigan is supposed to have
the suffocating linebackers, but Penn
State's appear on the CNN Play of the
Day.
EDGE: PENN STATE
Regardless of these facts, Michigan
is at home and needs to win this game
for respectability. As Lloyd Carr told his
players, "This is the reason you come to
Michigan.
PICK: MICHIGAN 18, PENN STATE 13
