By Andy Latack
Daily Sports Editor
When a freshman arrives to play football at
Michigan, it's something he learns almost imme-
diately. Somewhere along the line, as he's memo-
rizing schemes and formations, it starts to sink in
- when it comes to Michigan-Ohio State, it
doesn't get any better.
If the player is from another area of the coun-
try, one of his Midwestern teammates will school
him. If he's already from the area, chances are he
knows what's riding on the rivalry.
For every Wolverine but the freshmen, being on
the field for last year's 31-16 loss to the Buckeyes
in Columbus was motivation enough.
But the day before the game, Michigan got a
different sense of what was at stake in its season
finale. They were not the only ones with some-
thing riding on the game.
In their hotel on Friday, the Wolverines lis-
tened to members of Michigan's 1969 team talk
about their victory over the Buckeyes. In that
game Bo Schembechler, in his first season as
coach after taking over for Bump Elliott, led the
Wolverines to a 24-12 victory over the top-
ranked Buckeyes.
It was a victory that put Michigan on the map
in the modern era of college football and started
one of the greatest coaching legacies in the histo-
ry of the game.
And while this year's Ohio State squad wasn't
ranked - No. 1 or anywhere else in the polls -
Michigan left the meeting with a new take on one
of college football's most storied rivalries.
"It really put things in perspective," Michigan
safety DeWayne Patmon said. "It shows you that
you're playing not just for yourself, but for all the
people who ever played for Michigan. Every
week, they're looking to see if Michigan won, so
you want to do well for them."
The former Wolverines talked to the team about
leaving everything on the field, much as they had
thirty years ago. And if Michigan's dead-silent
lockerroom after the game was any indication, the
Wolverines took that advice to heart.
Despite the stirring win, Michigan was so

drained that the players could hardly muster
enough energy to celebrate.
"I'm exhausted and I didn't even do anything k
on the field," Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said.
"This team never quit."
Linebacker Ian Gold, playing in his final game
in Michigan Stadium, relishes the opportunity to
come back in the coming decades and continue to
be a part of the tradition.
"I'm sure, when I'm 50 or 60 years old, I'll
come back with the same intentions - to cheer
them on and help them beat OSU," Gold said.
"You take a piece of Michigan with you wherever
you go."
COOL-HEADED: In virtually every game during
Michigan's run to a probable BCS bowl berth,
quarterback Tom Brady has been instrumental.
But rather than letting Brady's stats tell the story,
Carr opted to use an anecdote after Saturday's win
to illustrate the senior's leadership.
When Michigan visited Syracuse on September r
18, Carr was still rotating Brady and sophomore
Drew Henson at quarterback. For the first time all
season, Carr decided to use Henson in the second
half. Michigan squeaked out the 18-13 victory.
"After the game the captains say a few words
and lead the team in 'Hail to the Victors,"' Carr
said. "There was not a tougher time for (Brady)
to not have played and to make himself stand up .
and tell his teammates how great they played ,'
without him. He's a special guy."
GOING FOR THE GOLD: After picking off a
Steve Bellisari pass in the third quarter, Gold got
a chance to show the moves that led Michigan to
recruit him as a running back out of high school.
Gold stepped in front of the pass at the Ohio
State 25-yard line, and began running down the
right sideline. When his path was blocked by a
crowd of Ohio State defenders, he cut back to the
middle of the field. Gold had scampered 17 yards
before he was finally brought down, setting up
Michigan's tying touchdown.
"That was a play that any other 10 of my team-
mates could have made," said Gold, admitting that Ian Gold, a former h
the play brought back memories of high school. "I Ohio State defender
was in the right place at the right time."

how theotemperature still never
seems to matter.
Make sure you remember it all
now, because it won't always be this
good.
Nothing lasts forever, even if
John Cooper's is under contract
through 2003.
The Wolverines can't always own
this rivalry the way they have for
the past five years. And you can't
always live within walking distance
of such magic.
It's easy now to move on, to pay
attention to the papers and tests that
are clamoring right now for your
attention.
It's easy now to fret about what's
next, what bowl game Michigan
will go to, and who needs to win
and lose to make which bowl hap-

pen.
It's easy to say this season was
lost a month ago, when Michigan
lost to Illinois.
But Saturday's game is the kind
of thing that gets a season back on
track.
And it's the kind of game you
remember forever, if only because
you were there, you didn't sell your
ticket.
It's the kind of memory that
makes you still long for college
when the thought of drinking beer
through a funnel loses a bit of its
luster.
It's the kind of memory that's too
good to experience just once.
- Rick Freeman is sad that he will
never again see a Michigan-Ohio
State game as a student, unless he
flunks Philosophy class.

Seminoles shore up Sugar, Hokies just one game away*.

Top 25

From staff and wire reports
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - A little bit
of Warrick and Weinke, a little bit of
Janikowski and a whole lot of Florida
State defense has the top-ranked
Seminoles poised to play for the nation-
al championship.
Peter Warrick ran for one touchdown
and set up another with a 38-yard catch.
Sebastian Janikowski kicked three field
goals - one from 54 yards - as No. 1
Florida State beat No. 3 Florida 30-23 to
complete its third perfect regular sea-
son.
The win all but clinched a spot for
coach Bobby Bowden and the
Seminoles ( 1-0) in the Sugar Bowl, the
sire of the Bowl Championship Series'
national title game.
"Every time Florida and Florida
State play, it puts someone in the nation-
al championship game. We're just happy
we're there," Bowden said.
The Gators fell to 9-2, and lost for
just the fourth time at home in ten years
under coach Steve Spurrier. Florida will

passes for 171 yards and two long
touchdowns to Andre Davis, and made
two spectacular touchdown runs. He
eluded trouble in the backfield with
scoring runs of 53 and 75 yards.
If they can overcome Boston
College next week, Virginia Tech will
likely be Florida State's opponent in the
Sugar Bowl.
No. 7 TENNESSEE 56, KENTUCKY
21: Travis Henry, filling in for injured
Jamal Lewis, ran for 179 yards and a
career-high three touchdowns as
Tennessee routed Kentucky.
After Tennessee built a 27-0 lead in
the first half, Kentucky scored a pair of
second-quarter touchdowns to close to
27-14 at halftime. But the Volunteers
scored four second-half touchdowns to
put the game away.
Wildcats quarterback Dusty Bonner
completed 32 of 50 passes for 361 yards
and three touchdowns, but was inter-
cepted five times. Kentucky also lost a
fumble, giving the Wildcats six
turnovers.
T~nP ~emnrterback Tee 'Martin

leading rusher, passing Bobby
Humphrey's mark of 3,420 yards.
Trailing 14-6 in the third quarter,
Alabama inserted back-up quarterback
Tyler Watts, who got the Crimson Tide
back into the game.
No. 9 KANSAS STATE 66, MISsouRi
0: Kansas State had no problem
rebounding from the disappointment of
last week's lost to Nebraska, as the
Wildcats rolled to their third shut-out of
the season.
Jonathon Beasley threw for two
touchdowns and ran for another and cor-
nerback Dyshod Carter scored twice as
Kansas State kept its Big 12 title game
hopes alive by handling Missouri.
Frank Murphy added two touch-
down runs and Adrian Beard recovered
a blocked punt for a touchdown.
No. 22 ARKANSAS 14, No. 12
MISSISSIPPI STATE 9: Clint Stoerner and
the Arkansas offense got the help they
needed from their defensive pals.
Stoerner completed seven of 10
passes on one touchdown drive and
threw a 33-yard pass to Anthony Lucas

Morgan Kane rushed for 224 yards
and a touchdown as Wake Forest posted
its first winning record in seven years,
holding off Georgia Tech.
Even though the Atlantic Coast
Conference has tie-ins with five bowl
games, just one postseason contest, the
Peach Bowl, sent a scout to Groves
Stadium, and he was there to see the
Yellow Jackets.
No. 21 GEORGIA 20, No. 16
MISSISSIPI 17: Georgia had no prob-
lems maintaining possession oriaccu-
mulating yardage, but an inability to
punch the ball in the end zone nearly
cost the Bulldogs.
Hap Hines made up for it, though,
and the Bulldogs left Oxford with a vic-
tory over Mississippi.
Hines kicked four field goals to pro-
vide most of the points and the Bulldogs
(5-3 Southeastern Conference, 7-3 over-
all) held on to edge the Rebels (4-3, 7-3)
behind Quincy Carter's 349 yards pass-
ing and a late pick by Terreal Bierria.
No. 18 SOUTHERN Mississippi 30,
LOUISVILLE 27: In a game featuring two

UTAH 20, No. 19 BRIGHAM YOUNG
17: Two weeks ago, Utah was struggling
with a two-game losing skid. T.D.
Croshaw and Andre Dyson made sure
the Utes ended their regular season in
the best way possible.
Croshaw threw for two second-half
touchdowns and Dyson ended a late
Brigham Young comeback attempt w&
his second interception.as the Utes be
the Cougars in the "Holy War'
It was a sweet victory for Utah (5-2
Mountain West, 8-3 overall), which won
its fourth straight on BYU's field. The
Utes also earned a share of the
MountainWest title and returned to the
postseason picture.
No.23 EAST CAROLINA 23, NORTH
CAROLINA STATE 6: David Garrard ran
for three touchdowns, and Steve Lo
became the winningest coach in East
Carolina history as the Pirates beat
North Carolina State.
Garrard,iwho lost a fumble in the
end zone on East Carolina's first posses-
sion, more than made up for it, sealing
the triumph with a 46-yard dash off the
