PLAYER OF THE GAME:
........................................................................
MARQUISE

By T.J. Berka
Daily Sports Editor
Coming into Saturday's game
against Rice, Michigan wasn't expect-
ing the Owls to throw the ball very
much. With the veer option - a relic
of the 1970s - as the preferred
offense of coach Ken Hatfield, the
concept of the forward pass is lost on
the Rice campus.
But while the Owls are considered a
run-first, pass-last team, the lack of
passing by Rice on Saturday was a lit-
tle bit surprising to the Wolverines.
"They are a run-first team, so I
expected them to run the ball a lot and
pass sometimes," defensive tackle Josh
Williams said. "But they ran the ball so
much it was a surprise when they
passed it."
Rice decided to wait a while to delve
into their passing trickery though.
After 25 plays - which consisted of
20 runs and five punts - the Owls
decided to pass.
Rice quarterback Chad Richardson
completed the pass, a 15-yarder to
Raphael Tillman, for a first-down.
But after the shock of seeing the
Rice offense put the ball in the air, the
Michigan defense adjusted to the Rice
aerial circus, only allowing Richardson
to complete two other passes.

Unfortunately for Richardson, the
passes were caught by Michigan
safeties DeWayne Patmon and Cato
June. An incomplete pass by backup
quarterback Corey Evans to flanker
Gilbert Okoronkwo summed up the
Rice passing attack for the day.
With absolutely no threat in the
passing game, one wouldn't fault the
secondary for losing focus and staring
at the clouds. But the Michigan defen-
sive backs won't admit to that.
"With the type of offense they run,
you can't afford to fall asleep out
there," Michigan safety Tommy
Hendricks said. "You have to be on
point with your keys so they can't hurt
you."
WALKING ALL OVER RICE: Last
week, sophomore wide receiver David
Terrell had a breakout game, leading
Michigan in receptions in the victory
over Notre Dame.
On Saturday against Rice, it was
Marquise Walker's turn to bust loose.
The sophomore, who had only five
career catches coming into the game,
equaled that total against the Owls,
catching a team-leading five passes for
59 yards.
But Walker's impact wasn't con-
tained to just offense. He also blocked
a Travis Hale punt in the third quarter,

leading to a touchdown.
A NEAR-SKUNKING: The Michigan
defense held Rice scoreless for 59:30
of Saturday's game. Only a 33-yard
field goal by Derek Crabtree kept Rice
from being shut out by the Wolverines.
But while that was impressive, it
paled in comparison to what the
Michigan first, second, and third units
did against the Owls. Until Corey
Evans ripped off a 22-yard run to the
Michigan 48 with just under four min-
utes left to go in the game, the Owls
had not set foot on the Michigan half
of the field.
"I think we executed well,"
Hendricks said. "Coming into the
game, I personally believed that Rice's
option was a little more complicated
than Notre Dame because they did the
true triple option. I thought we did a
great job with our keys and assign-
ments."
But Michigan wasn't all smiles on
Saturday. Rice scored on a defense
consisting of freshmen and walk-ons,
and some of the starters hinted at rib-
bing the third team.
"They will definitely get ragged on
about it," linebacker Ian Gold said jok-
ingly.
But not all the Michigan starting
defenders were disappointed with the

Marquise Walker equaled the combined reception output of his

last-second field goal. Some of them
were appreciative of the rest that they
got on the sidelines.
"I thought they did a great job," cor-
nerback James Whitley said. "I really
enjoyed the rest I got in the fourth
quarter."
INJURY UPDArE: Long snapper
Jeremy Miller joined the list of the
injured Saturday, breaking his right
humerus while covering a punt in the

second quarter.
"I was going down on the pt and
trying to make a tackle," Milleiid. "I
put my arm out ano that's a I can
remember."
Miller will get a status rert after
seeing the team doctor today.

Lions need
FG block to
wn catfight
STATE COLLEGE (AP) - Penn State need-
ed a 24-yard field goal from Travis Forney and
a blocked field goal from LaVar Arrington with
four seconds left to defeat Pittsburgh 20-17
Saturday.
Eric McCoo had a seven-yard TD run and
Mike Cerimele caught an I1-yard TD pass for
Penn State (3-0).
Following Forney's field goal with 1:20 left,
Hank Poteat ran the kickoff to the 50 and
Turman found Latef Grim for a 25-yard gain,
but David Fleishhauer sacked Turman and Nick
Lotz's 52-yard field goal attempt was blocked
by Arrington.
Pittsburgh (1-1) lost to Penn State for the
seventh straight time, but thanks to great
defensive line play, stuck with the Lions for the
second year in a row.
No. 13 OHIO ST. 42, No. 14 UCLA 20:
Michael Wiley rushed for 119 yards and two
touchdowns and Ken-Yon Rambo caught two
scoring passes as 13th-ranked Ohio State
climbed out of a 10-0 hole to beat No. 14
UCLA 42-20.
It was the first time in 27 games that UCLA
(1-I) had not scored at least 24 points.
Ohio State (1-I) won its 21st straight home
opener before 93,283 in only the fourth night
game in Ohio Stadium's 78 seasons.
Rambo caught both of his touchdown passes
from Steve Bellisari, who came off the bench
to complete 11-of-16 for 159 yards without an
interception. Starter Austin Moherman was 10-
of-19 for 107 yards with one interception.
UCLA was playing without nine starters and
four backups who received two-game suspen-
sions for illegally obtaining and using handi-
capped-parking placards.
Ohio State totaled 489 yards of offense after
mustering just 220 in its 23-12 loss to Miami in
the Kickoff Classic two weeks ago.
WISCONSIN 50, BALL ST. 10:
Ron Dayne moved 158 yards closer to the
national rushing record and Nick Davis
returned a kickoff for a touchdown as No. 9
Wiscpnsin rolled over Ball State 50-10.
The best offensive weapon for the Badgers
(2-0) wasn't Dayne, who now needs 1,424 in
Wisconsin's nine remaining games to beat the
NCAA mark set last year by Ricky Williams.
He finished with 31 carries that included a
2-yard rush for a touchdown in the third quar-
ter, his fourth TD of the season.
Instead, the. star was Davis, a sophomore
receiver and kick returner who racked up 227
total yards of offense on kick returns, pass
receptions and rushes. Davis, who had a 76-
yard touchdown punt return last week against
Murray State, made a beautiful 77-yard TD run
on the kickoff following a second-quarter safe-
ty.
NORTHWESTERN 17, TEXAS CHRISTIAN 7:
Sam Simmons returned a punt for a touch-
down and set up another score with a 71-yard
reception as Northwestern beat Texas Christian
17-7.
It was new coach Randy Walker's first victo-
ry at Northwestern (1-1). The loss snapped a
three-game road winning streak for Texas

!PHO'0
Eric McCoo and the Penn State starting lineups had to do something that they hadn't done yet in the 1999 season - play the whole game. Pittsburgh gve
the Nittany Lions all they could handle Saturday, coming within a blocked field goal of forcing overtime at No. 3 Penn State.

Purdue's Mike Rose stopped quarterback
Jarious Jackson on second-and-goal with less
than 15 seconds left to preserve the 20th-
ranked Boilermakers' 28-23 victory over No.
16 Notre Dame.
Travis Dorsch kicked two fourth-quarter
field goals to put the Boilermakers (2-0) ahead,
but Jackson led the Irish (1-2) to the Purdue 2
with time running out.
Tony Driver was stopped on first-and-goal,
and Notre Dame called timeout to regroup.
Jackson then ran left on an option but was
dropped for a 9-yard loss by Rose.
The Irish didn't have enough time to get off
another play, much as last week when Notre
Dame lost 26-22 at Michigan when its two-
minute drill came up short.
Jackson was 22-of-34 for 267 yards, a touch-
down and an interception. But he was ineffec-
tive running the ball, usually one of his
strengths, and had 1 yard rushing on 13
attempts.
Drew Brees continued his assault on the
Purdue record book. throwing for 317 yards

State 38-10, giving the Illini consecutive victo-
ries for the first time in three years.
Illinois, which led 24-0 before the Aztecs
scored in the third quarter, are 2-0 for the first
time since 1992. The Aztecs (1-1) have lost 25
straight nonconference road games.
Kittner, a sophomore, finished 16-of-25 with
no interceptions.
San Diego State quarterback Brian Russell
was just 8-of-21 for 93 yards and backup Jack
Hawley was 9-of-19 for 86.
N. CAROLINA 42, INDIANA 30:.
Each time North Carolina needed yards,
Ronald Curry came up with a big play and
Indiana came up with a big mistake.
Curry ran for one touchdown and passed for
241 yards and two TDs, and the Tar Heels sur-
vived some costly penalties to beat Indiana 42-
30.
North Carolina (1-1) scored on three straight
possessions in the second half, each following
defensive breakdowns by the Hoosiers (1-1).
IOwA ST. 17, IOwA 10:
Darren Davis rushed for 235 yards and Sage

Groce's touchdown catch, the seent>-
longest pass play in Iowa State history, iadeit
14-0 after one quarter and the Cyclon's, 20
for the first time since 1985, seemed posed o
turn the game into a rout.
Iowa State stalled at key times after thit,
however, and Iowa drew to 17-10 m Tm
Douglas' 47-yard field goal with 6:36 bft.
Matt Bowen's interception with 4:58 -eman-
ing gave Iowa a chance to draw even clo er.
But James Reed dropped Kevin Kasperfor a9-
yard loss on a reverse, Hawkeyes had to pint
two plays later and Iowa State held on.
MINNESOTA 35, LOUISIANA-MONROE 0:
Minnesota coach Glen Mason shouldn't have
to worry about his running game anymre, and
his defense sure won't distress him any tune
soon.
Senior Thomas Hamner had career bests
with 33 carries for 174 yards and three touch-
downs as the Golden Gophers crushed
Louisiana-Monroe 35-0.
The defense produced two touchdowns an(
seven sacks while running its streak to 21
