Yes, Northwestern has two quarter-
backs, too. But before the season,
Wildcats coach Randy Walker said
he thought neither one was compe-
tent enough to do the job.
Apparently, he's found one. Last
week Zak Kustok made his third
start. So far this season, Kustok has
completed 48 percent of his passes.
As a team, Northwestern is averag-
ing 159 passing yards per game.
Dull, bland numbers, yes. But a lack
of passing-game pizzazz hasn't
fooled Michigan's defenders yet.
Advantage: Even
SPECIAL TEAMS: Northwestern
has struggled, no doubt about it.
Michigan, with the resurgence of
DiAllo Johnson as punt returner, is
showing promise. And with Hayden
Epstein doing nearly everything on,
special teams but return kicks and
hold on his own field goals,
Michigan should improve. Give this
one to Michigan.

Northwestern's rushing attack may not b as imposing as Michigan State's was. For
one thing, Damien Anderson is no Lloyd Clemons. Or is he?

Advantage: Michigan

and Penn State left, a four-loss season
is lurking. But, as mentioned before,
the Wildcats wear purple. On their
behinds. The cats in purple hats have
damaged Michigan's chances before.
But not this time. Not now. But
who says they won't score 30? Well,
that's pushing it. Michigan has had
some serious learning experiences in
the past three games.
But no sign of purple. on their

Northwestern has nothing to lose.
Michigan has plenty - with two loss-
es already this season and Ohio State
