Disastrous loss hurts M'
in more ways than one

By Andy Latack
Daily Sports Editor
It doesn't matter who you ask. This
one hurt.
After suffering its first loss to an
unranked team since being stunned
by Purdue in 1996, Michigan had a
tough time hiding its disappointment
after the game.
But for wide receiver David Terrell
and running back Anthony Thomas,
the 35-29 loss to the Illini stung for a
different reason. Both players fin-
ished the game injured, with Terrell
nursing a separated shoulder and
Thomas favoring a probable broken
finger.
Terrell, who left Michigan Stadium
with his left arm in a sling, separated
his left shoulder in the first half. The
sophomore couldn't say exactly when
the injury occurred.
"In the second quarter, I fell down
and it separated," Terrell said after
the game.
Terrell remained in the game,
though, with the 110,188 fans under
the impression that he was at full
strength. He finished with four
catches for 64 yards, catching two
balls in the fourth quarter despite his

injured shoulder.
But it will be one of the balls that
Terrell didn't catch that will stick
with him the longest. With Illinois up
by an improbable 35-27 margin with
37 seconds remaining in the game,
Michigan quarterback Tom Brady
was leading the Wolverines on a fren-
zied comeback attempt.
After taking over at the Michigan
20-yard line, Brady moved the team
64 yards in 22 seconds behind a
string of well-executed sideline pat-
terns, two of which went to Terrell.
With a first-and-10 at the Illinois 16-
yard line, Michigan was threatening
to score and set up the game-tying
two-point conversion attempt.
On the next play, Brady dropped
back and fired the ball at Terrell, who
was running a slant pattern after lin-
ing up in the right slot. Terrell dove
and had the ball on his fingertips, but
was unable to complete what would
have been a remarkable catch.
"I just came around, looked and
(the ball) was there," Terrell said. "I
thought I had it, but I just dropped
it."
Two plays later, Brady was inter-
cepted by Illinois cornerback Tony

Francis, ending the drive. Francis
fumbled into the end zone, resulting
in a safety, but Michigan was unable
to put the ball into the end zone.
Thomas' injury forced him to
watch Illinois' comeback from the
sideline after breaking the little fin-
ger on his left hand. Thomas carried
the ball 12 times for 88 yards in the
first half, and continued to carry the
burden early in the second half. He
carried nine times for 40 yards on
Michigan's opening drive of the third
quarter before sustaining the injury.
Thomas was removed from the
game and wouldn't return, leaving
the rushing duties to sophomore
Walter Cross and freshmen B.J.
Askew and Charles Drake.
"He has a possible broken finger
on his left hand," Michigan coach
Lloyd Carr said of Thomas. "Anthony
was playing very well up to that
point. We had established a really
effective running game."
Despite sitting out almost the
entire second half, Thomas finished
the game with 128 yards on 21 car-
ries. It was his third 100-yard game
of the season and the ninth of
Thomas' career.

Tailback Anthony Thomas gained 128 yards on the ground, but was forced to
watch Illinois' late-game comeback from the bench after breaking his finger.
Thomas said that the injury would immediate word on whether Terrelli'
not force him to miss any time in next separated shoulder would keep hits
week's game at Indiana. There was no out for any length of time.

WEST LAFAYETTE (AP)-- Purdue coach Joe Tiller does-
n't care about statistics, especially when the final score doesn't
go his way.
No. 16 Purdue held second-ranked Penn State to only I I
first downs and outgained the Nittany Lions by over 100 yards.
But three Purdue turnovers were turned into 21 points and a
31-25 victory by the undefeated Lions on Saturday.
"There were a lot of mistakes made by both sides. It was a
sloppy game. A lot of that was the intensity. Our kids were very
emotional early in the game," said Penn State coach Joe
Paterno, who moved into third on the major-college career vic-
tory list with his 315th.
Purdue had 28 first downs and outgained the Lions 444-318,
but Penn State got two touchdowns from its defense.
"There is a lot of positive things. The negative thing was the
way the thing ended. We had a horrible throw on the last play
of the game," Tiller said. "We expect a perfect game from our
quarterback and we expect no sacks from the 0-line. We did-
n't get that done today. Part of it was us, and a lot of it was Penn
State."
Drew Brees passed for two touchdowns and 379 yards --
the most yielded by Penn State all season. But he had a pass
intercepted and returned 25 vards for a touchdown by defen-
sive end Courtney Brown.
The Lions got another score when LaVar Arrington sacked
Brees and caused a fumble, which he returned two yards for a
touchdown.
Penn State (4-0 Big Ten, 8-0 overall) forced Brees into four
incomplete passes in the final minute after he had moved the
Boilermakers (2-3, 5-3) 58 yards to a first down at the 12 with
31seconds remaining.
Brees, who was 31-of-48, had his first-down pass tipped at
the line of scrimmage by cornerback Anthony King on a blitz.
A pass to Randall Lane went incomplete on the next play and
on third down he threw the ball out of the end zone to avoid a
sack.

Brees then threw past the outstretched arms of Chris
Daniels, and Purdue was out of downs.
"It was just fades on both sides and Vinny was running a 5*
yard out. The guy (defender) was playing outside leverage, so
he had no chance," Brees said. "I was thinking Randall because
it was a shorter throw, but right at the snap of the ball the DB
jumped outside and it didn't look like he would be able to fade
outside.
"So I turned around and threw it to Daniels as quick as I
could. There really wasn't much room to work with."
The victory was the 315th for Paterno, moving him past
Amos Alonzo Stagg into third place among major-college
coaches and 'within eight of Bear Bryant's record total. It was
the 10th consecutive victory for Penn State, the second-longest
winning streak among majors.
Another mistake by Purdue produced a 14-14 halftime tie.
Antoine Neal was attempting to return a punt when he mis-
handled the ball and Mac Morrison recovered for Penn State at
the Purdue 41. Two plays later, cornerback James Dunnigan
was beaten by Eddie Drummond, who caught a 39-yard TD
pass from Kevin Thompson.
"Courtney is a great player. If he doesn't get the Lombardi
award there's something wrong with somebody," Paterno said
"He plays every play. If coach Lombardi was alive, that's the
kind of kid he'd want to have the award in his name. He's a
super kid."
Brown said he had seen Purdue run its bubble-screen on film.
"I had no idea that was what they were running on that par-
ticular play. I just put my hands up, hit the ball- and it cane
down and I went running," he said. "I think I was the most sur-
prised."
Thompson and Chafie Fields hooked up for a 78-yard TD
pass behind Dunnigan to put Penn State ahead for good 21-14
on the first play of the second half
Brown's interception with 10:19 left in the third quarter
made it 28-14.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - As
Michigan State learned on Saturday,
Ron Dayne at his best is better than just
about anybody.
No. 17 Wisconsin's overpowering tail-
back gave another stellar performance,
rushing for 214 yards and two touch-
downs as Wisconsin shredded the
nation's best run defense and routed the
Spartans 40-10 on Saturday.
No. Il Michigan State allowed 279
rushing yards, the fewest in the country,
in its first seven games. The Badgers
racked up 301, including touchdowns
runs of51 and 15 yards by Dayne, who
had just one of his 34 carries in the
fourth quarter.
"We knew that they were No. 1, and
that was one of our main goals, to go out
and run .on them," Dayne said. "My
offensive line, the fullbacks and tight
ends all had great games."
After a string of mediocre perfor-
mances that put his season goals in jeop-
ardy, Dayne was in top form during
Wisconsin's last two home victories,
during which the Badgers outscored
their opponents 99-10.
The Spartans' front seven was
thought to be one of the best in the
country, but Michigan State had almost
no success in containing Davne who

Dayne passed Charles White for third
place on the major-college career rush-
ing list, and moved within 483 yards of
Ricky Williams' record. Dayne must
average 161 yards in Wisconsin's final
three games against Northwestern,
Purdue and Iowa to set the mark.
Cornerback Jamar Fletcher intercept-
ed two passes for the Badgers (4-1 Big
Ten, 6-2 overall), who got their fourth
straight conference victory with a sec-
ond straight overwhelming perfor-
mance. Wisconsin beat Indiana 59-0 last
week and led the Spartans 33-3 early in
the fourth quarter.
Just two weeks ago, the trash-talking,
high-fiving Spartans (3-2, 6-2) were
undefeated and talking about a national
championship run. But consecutive
humbling losses to Purdue and
Wisconsin have knocked Michigan
State all but out of the national and con-
ference title hunts.
Dayne broke free for a 51-yard touch-
down run on the Badgers' opening pos-
session of the game and, after two field
goals by Vitaly Pisetsky, Bobby Myers
intercepted Bill Burke's pass deep in
Michigan State territory.
That set up Dayne's second touch-
down run early in the second quarter.
With 66 career touchdowns. Davne

The Buckeyes seriously helped their
bowl cause when Dan Stultz kicked a
40-yard field goal with 1:15 left and
Matt Wilhelm recovered Tyrone Carter's
fumble on the ensuing kickoff. The
Buckeyes avoided their first 1-3 confer-
ence start since 1988 and extended their
dominance over the Gophers to 16
straight games.
Jerry Westbrooks caused the fumble
that secured Ohio State's victory over
the' Gophers, who dominated the game
statistically until failing to gain a first
down in three fourth-quarter posses-
sions.
INDIANA 38, Iow A 31: Antwaan
Randle El threw four touchdown passes
and Indiana stopped lowa on the four-
yard line as time expired to beat the
Hawkeyes.
Iowa quarterback Scott Mullen,
making his first start of the season for
injured Randy Reiners, tied a school
record with 60 pass attempts. He com-
pleted 36 of them for 426 yards but was
intercepted twice. Mullen also ran 14
times for 47 yards and two touch-
downs.
Mullen took the Hawkeyes (0-4, 1-6)
on a 75-yard drive with 2:10 remaining
and the Hoosiers up, 38-31.
