By Rick Freeman
Daily Sports Editor
MADISON - Call it luck, call it
getting the breaks, call it whatever you
like. Michigan can call it a big help
after Saturday's game.
The speculating type could say that
plain luck favored Michigan on
Saturday - and went against
Wisconsin for the second week in a
row.
In the second quarter, with
Wisconsin deep in Michigan territory,
Chris Chambers, wide open in the
corner of the end zone, dropped a pass
that had six points all but written on it.
Chambers, almost as wide open as
Notre Dame tight end Jabari
Holloway was three weeks ago, was
facing the sun as he tried to make the
catch.
"He said he didn't see the ball," his
coach, Barry Alvarez, explained after
the game. "He got on the phone
immediately to tell me."
Alvarez, who is on crutches after
knee surgery last week, coached
Saturday's game from the press box.
Michigan safety Tommy Hendricks,
who was on the field and the only
player even remotely close to
Chambers, saw things a bit more

clearly.
Chambers was Michigan corner-
back Todd Howard's man, but he fell
down on the play.
"I jammed (Nick) Davis hard at the
line, and I think I pushed him into
Todd," Hendricks said after the game.
"That's really how they designed the
play, as a pick. We got lucky when he
dropped the ball."
Michigan's first touchdown drive
wasn't a product of luck, but a good
break definitely aided the Wolverines'
cause.
On their first possession, they ran,
ran, ran. And got nowhere fast. On the
drive's third play, quarterback Tom
Brady scrambled for five yards, which
put him well short of the first down
until one Badger too many piled on.
Wisconsin was whistled for the per-
sonal foul and Michigan had a free set
of downs to work with. Michigan
coach Lloyd Carr made the most of
them.
After handing off to Anthony
Thomas once more (for no gain), Carr
went to the air.
The next five plays were passes,
and 54 yards later, on the Wisconsin
14. Michigan ran yet another rushing
play -- good for one yard. Two more

passes, and Brady had his first touch-
down pass of the year, Michigan had a
7-0 lead. The Wolverines had that late-
hit call back at their own 12 to thank
for keeping the drive alive.
This is not the only time this season
that Michigan was lucky. In fact, it
seems in every one of the Wolverines'
three close victories, they've been
helped by a few good breaks - espe-
cially disputed personal foul calls.
In fact, the only time they were
penalized on Saturday with a personal
foul was in the third quarter. While
trying to extend Michigan's 14-9 lead,
Brady completed a pass to David
Terrell at the Wisconsin 22.
From there, a field goal would be
39 yards - within range of the ubiq-
uitous Jeff Del Verne. After the play,
though, Terrell stood up, faced the
Camp Randall crowd, put his hands
on his hips, and then gave a tiny, fin-
gertip salute with his left index fin-
ger.
The result: fifteen yards and out of
field goal range.
"I'm in trouble," Terrell said after-
ward. when his alibi - that he was
reaching for his mouthpiece - was
debunked. So far this season, his team
hasn't been.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - The
main problem for No. 1 Florida State
on Saturday was staying interested for
four quarters after its lightning-quick
start.
The Seminoles (4-0, 3-0 Atlantic
Coast Conference) put this one away
early, scoring four touchdowns before
the first quarter was half over en route
to a 42-10 victory over North Carolina
(1-2).
It was Florida State's fastest start in
its seven-plus seasons in the ACC.
"It looked like in the first quarter
they simply were not going to be able
to stop us, Seminoles coach Bobby
Bowden said. "Then we substituted a
lot of people and we lost continuity"
No. 3 FLORIDA 38, KENTUCKY 10:
In a battle of coaches known for their
offensive wizardry, Florida's Steve
Spurrier showed Hal Mumme of
Kentucky the value of a good defense.
The third-ranked Gators held
Mumme's "Air Raid" offense to its
lowest point total in two-plus seasons
in Lexington, taking a 28-0 lead on
the way to a 38-10 win Saturday night.
. "Our defense was the story of the
game." Spurrier said. "To hold
Kentucky to 10 points, I don't know
who has done that before."
The answer is no one, as Florida (4-
0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference), reg-
istered its 13th straight victory over
the Wildcats (2-2, 0-1) and its sixth
straight by double digits.
No. 5 NEBRASKA 40, MissouRI 10:
This time, Nebraska needed no last-
second heroics against Missouri. Not
by a long shot.
The fifth-ranked Cornhuskers capi-
talized on two high punt snaps and an
interception to take a 16-point first-
quarter lead en route to a 40-10 victo-
ry over Missouri.
"It's real simple," Missouri coach
Larry Smith said. "We stunk. That's
the worst excuse for a football team
I've ever seen in my life."
No. 6 TEXAS A&M 23, SOUTHERN
Miss 6: Southern Mississippi's
defense was very good. Texas A&M's

was better.
The fifth-ranked Aggies (3-0) inter-
cepted four passes, returning two of
them for their only touchdowns of the
game, to take a 23-6 victory Saturday.
No. 7 TENNESSEE 17, MEMPHIS 16:
Three years after upsetting Tennessee,
Memphis almost did it again.
In their first meeting since that
game, the seventh-ranked Volunteers
(2-1) pulled out a victory when Tee
Martin hit Cedrick Wilson with a 15-
yard touchdown pass with a minute
left for a 17-16 victory Saturday.
'" told them I would take one point
or 50 points, whatever we could get
done." said Tennessee coach Phillip
Fulmer. "I didn't know they would
take me literally."
No. 9 GEORGIA 24, CENTRAL
FLORIDA 23: Georgia got away with
one Saturday.
Central Florida, a 28-point under-
dog, missed the extra point after an
apparent game-tying touchdown with
5:21 remaining, allowing the Bulldogs
(3-0) to escape with a 24-23 victory.
"We took this one for granted,'"
admitted Jasper Sanks, who rushed
for a career-high 147 yards and a
touchdown. "The luck was in our
favor."
EAST CAROLINA 27, No. 13 MIAMI
(FLA) 23: With all that East Carolina
has been through in the last six days, a
20-point deficit didn't look all that
daunting.
David Garrard's 27-yard touch-
down pass to Keith Stokes with 4:51
left capped a fourth-quarter rally and
led the hurricane-battered Pirates to a
27-23 upset of Miami (2-2) Saturday
night. It's the highest-ranked team
East Carolina (4-0) has ever beaten.
ALABAMA 35, No. 14 ARKANSAS
28: Alabama overcame a week's worth
of controversy and six turnovers, and
may have saved coach Mike DuBose's
job in the process.
Freddie Milons caught one touch-
down pass and threw one to help
Alabama(3-1, 2-0 SEC) to a 35-28
victory over No. 14 Arkansas (2-1, 0-

another one sitting on its bench.
Joe Borchard came off the sideline d
to throw five touchdown passes, c
including 'a Pac-10 record 98-yarder. -
to Troy Walters, as Stanford held off
No. 18 UCLA 42-32 Saturday. -
VIRGINIA 45, No. 19 BYU 40:
Virginia coach George Welch has
been saying for weeks that Thomas
Jones deserves more publicity. i
Welch will get no argument from
the Brigham Young defense after
Jones ran for 210 yards and scored
two touchdowns and Dan Ellis threw
for 190 yards and three TDs as E.
Virginia (2-1) scored a 45-40 win overt
Brigham Young (2-1)..,a
No. 20 TEXAS 62, BAYLOR 0: A
week after struggling to score touch- .i
downs in an 18-13 victory over Rice,
Texas handed overmatched Baylor a 9
62-0 whipping in the Longhorns' Big,. s
12 opener.
Never pressured in the pocket,
Applewhite coolly passed for 333 1
yards and thice touchdowns for Texas .
(4-1, 1-0) before lea\ nk the game in *s
the third quarter. Tiexka scored touch- , S
downs all eight times it got within the

SouTH CRoI.INA 0: Mississippi State i
is 4-0 for the first time since 1965. . ;tl
Lou Holtz is 0-4 for the first time

"It's discouraging. I don't know d
how many times you can keep getting. ,p
off the mat and keep getting your teeth' j.
kicked," Holtz said after South d
Carolina (0-4) lost 17-0 Saturday"i
night at 23rd-ranked Mississippi
State.

to improving what was last year's s
worst rushing offense in the Atlantic

OREGON 33, No. 16 USC 30
(30T): Someone had to lose this
head-spinning game eventually. A
string of crucial mistakes made it
Southern California, and kicker David
Newbury took the blame.
Josh Frankel, Oregon's third kicker
of the game, booted a 27-yard field

goal in the third overtime late
Saturday night as Oregon prevailed in
the wildest game yet of the topsy-
turvy Pac-10 season, upsetting the
No. 16 Trojans 33-30.
Nathan Villegas, Oregon's All-
American kicker, tied the game at 23
on a 26-yard field goal with 30 sec-

game jubilation may have cost him
dearly.
As teammates let him down, a jubi-
