RI E
Continued from Page 13
another less-challenging defense to deal
with on Saturday, hopefully giving him
enough time to prepare for UCLA, as it's
unlikely Drew IHenson will return until
the Illinois or Wisconsin. Navarre was
almost perfect last week, completing 15-
,f- 19 passes and four touchdowns.
Like Michigan, Rice has had to turn to
a backup quarterback as well. Freshman
quarterback Jeremy Hurd broke a finger
in his left (non-throwing) hand and
underwent surgcry on Tuesday.
Corey Evans a 5-foot- 11, 180-pound

junior is the leading candidate to start in
his place.
Last weekend Rice won the annual
Bayou Bucket, slipping by Houston 30-
27 in overtime. Freshman Robbie Beck
ran for two scores.
And for the Owls, after a blowout last
year, they hope that the familiarity of the
scenery may give them some chance.
"Going there last year, we know what
to expect more," Rice coach Ken
Hatfield said during his Monday press
conference. "We'll be staying in the
same hotel, we know where the locker
rooms are, and the kickoff's at the same
time"

MATCHUPS
Continued from Page 13
Justin Fargas and Chris Perry.
Closest call of the afternoon, but
Michigan's O-line makes it no con-
test.
Advantage: Michigan
Rice PASSING vs. Michigan
passing defense: Rice's passing
attack is impotent. While James
Whitley and Michigan's defensive
secondary are still unproven, Rice's

injured Jeremy Hurd could put up
only 68 yards on five-of-nine against
Houston. But admittedly, down-the-
field passing is not a big part of
Rice's game plan. Don't look for any
Owl bombs.
Advantage: Michigan
Rice RUSHING vs. Michigan
rushing defense: This is where Rice
hopes to do most of the damage.
Hurd and Anthony Griffin accounted
for most of the yardage on the option
(but Hurd is hurt). Leroy Bradley

also picked up 47 yards against
Houston.
As for defending the option - as
Evan Coleman suggests, the
Wolverines "will find the guy with
the ball" and take him down. Rice
has the playbook to test Michigan's
D-line, but not the talent.
Advantage: Michigan
Special teams: According to
coach Lloyd Carr, there is nothing
fundamentally wrong with the way
Hayden Espstein kicks the ball. For

tomorrow, it doesn't matter if he's
correct or not.
Kicker Derek Crabtree is back
Rice - solid from close but clo e
from solid. Expect to see Terrell
back for at least a couple punt
returns. He might have the bobbles,
but Rice's inability to put it through
the uprights from long distance bal-
ances it out.
Advantage: Even
Another yawner at the Big House
- don't let the sun take it out of
you.
