doesn't normally possess in Rocky
Hlarvey. The slippery sophomore is
capable of breaking a long run at all
times and has even played wide
receiver at Illinois.
But Michigan's defense is fast as
well. Linebackers Ian Gold and
Dhani Jones run, like greyhounds,
and defensive tackles Rob Renes and
Josh Williams arc adept at disrupting
plays at the line of scrimmage.
The key to the Illinois rushing
attack is getting its runners past the
line of scrimmage and allowing them
to run in the open field. But
Michigan doesn't allow that to hap-
pen very often.
ILLINOIS PASSING OFFENSE VS.
MIICHIGAN PASSING DEFENSE: If
there's any way for Illinois to pull the
huge upset at Michigan Stadium, it
lies in the arm of Kirk Kittner.
The sophomore - who won a
three-way raice for the starting job in
fall practice - has been solid this
season, tossing 12 touchdowns and
only two interceptions.
The Michigan secondary is conning
off its worst game of the, season.
Cornerbacks Todd Howard and James
Whitley were brutalized by Burress
to the tune of 10 catches and 255
yards and face the task of chasing

Michigan has to prove to itself
again that it can shut down a semi-
effective passing attack. Kittner has

effective this season. Unless James
Hall can sack Kittner six or seven
times today, expect the Illini to gain
some yards through the air.
MICHIGAN SPECIAL TEAMS VS.
ILLINOIS SPECIAL TEMS Michigan
has proven that it can make field
goals this year, as Jcff Del Verne has
pumped I 1-of-13 field goals this
season. Coupled with Hayden
Epstein's 56-yard boot going into the
wind against the Spartans, the
Wolverines have proven to have scor-
ing potential anywhere in opposing

Illinois has an consistent kicker in
Neil Rackers. The Illini also boast
Harvey, a threat to score whenever he
touches the ball. Illinois will need
Harvey to break one to stay within
range of the Wolverines.
ADVANTAGE: EvE N
Illinois has improved quite a bit
since the 0-1Il mark it put up in 1997.
But the Illini still aren't ready to
make the next step in the Big Ten.
The Illini aren't dreadful any more,
but they still aren't adequate. That
should make for a routine Michigan
win this afternoon.
