UCLA tailback Foster
pleads guilty to possession
:OS ANGELES (AP) - Leading
UCLA rusher DeShaun Foster report-
edly pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor
marijuana possession charge although
he says he's never smoked the drug and
wasa victim of circumstance.
*Bruins coach Bob Toledo told the
Las Angeles Times he believed the
. 2 incident was isolated and didn't
rMish the junior tailback.
" strongly believe what he is telling
we' Toledo said. "Ie was guilty of
having it. ie wasn't guilty of using it."
Foster said he has never tested posi-
tive for drugs at UCLA, which ran-
domly tests all athletes.
According to Ventura County court
cords, he paid a $250 fine.
WIn a story published yesterday, senior
Deputy Takeo Kingi of the Ventura
County Sheriff's Department told the
Times he and his partner, patrolling a
hotel parking lot during a dance in
Thousand Oaks on July 7, noticed a
parked car with its lights on.
The deputies discovered Foster
inside with the marijuana in plain view,
Kingi said.
S ichigin State announces
pas or gas in 2002
In a move that corresponds with the
trend in college football, Michigan
State announced plans Tuesday to
replace Spartan Stadium's artificial turf
with natural grass in time fr the 2002
"The move was made to to satisfy cur-
& football players, as well as to quell
recruits' concerns of playing on artifi-
cial turf.
Michigan State administrators have
expressed concern over the costs of
maintaining a natural grass field in
light of environmental conditions. But
they are also enthused by the prowess
of their internationally renowned turf-.
management program.
'The grass will start growing next
'ing. In order for natural grass to
gLow properly, the rooting process
takes at least two years.

Big Ten not so
big: Mediocre
slate t1S week
By Seth Klempner
For the Daily
At the beginning of the college football season, seven out of
the I 1 Big Ien teams were in the top 25 in the AlP poll. Seven
weeks later, there are only four teams remaining in the top 25.
Here's a look at this weekend's notable games.
MINNESOTA (2-1, 4-2) AT Omo Si-:rr, (2-0, 5-0): John
Cooper's over-achieving Buckeyes are out for revenge against
every team that beat them last year and want to prove that they
should not be taken lightly. Ohio State took Wisconsin to the
woodshed last weekend for a 23-7 beating in Madison that was
worse than the score indicates. The Ohio State defense held
Michael Bennett to 106 yards, far
short of his 208-yard average and
recorded 1I1 sacks. Acrss the

offensive games from 'ellis Redmon

lii the end, however, the Golden Gophers will not be good
enough to overcome the motivated Buckeyes.
Ohio State 33, Minnesota 13
PuRDtU (2-1, 4-2) Al NoRTHwESTE;RN (5-1, 3-0): At this
point in the season, most people expected the Wildcats to have
more Tolstoy novels under their belts than wins.
Surprisingly, the Wildcats are 5-1 and undef'eated in the Big
- Northwestern runs a no-huddle spread offense straight out of'
the SEC. Quarterback Zak Kustok has an arsenal of weapons
at his disposal, but Northwestern's best player is running back
Damien Anderson, who rushed for close to 300 yards against
Indiana last weekend. This does not mean that Northwestern
will have an easy time against the Boilermakers. Drew Brees
is coming ofT one of his best performances and biggest wins of
his career against Michigan last week and will be looking to
continue his success.
Do not look for Purdue's second half defense to show up.
This game will be a shootout and the last team with the ball

WISCONSIN (0-3, 3-3) AT MICIGAN STxr: (0-2, 3-2):
Wisconsin came into this football season as defending Rose
Bowl champion, ranked in the top five in the nation and
expected to compete for a national title. That was before any-
one outside of Madison had heard of the "Shoe Box."
Perhaps the discounts were the secret to their success,
