M' seeks explosion
against stingy Wildcats

By Allison Topp
Daily Sports Writer

The Michigan women's soccer team
will need all the fire power it has against
the No. 24 Kentucky Wildcats today.
TIhe Wildcats have displayed stifling
defense in their first two games, holding
Marshall to only one goal and shutting
out Vanderbilt in the following game.
Amy Sullivant has led the attack on
goal for the Wolverines with three of
the four goals scored Sept. 2 at the Cal
Invitational. Rounding out the scoring
attack has been fellow forward Abby
Crumpton with a goal against the Lions.
More than just a strong offensive effort
is needed, as the whole team must be
involved in strengthening its defense.
"We've been trying to get everyone
on the team to contribute when marking
up on defense," said assistant coach
Scott Forrester.
The Wolverines have displayed
bright spots on offense, but have strug-
gled on defense giving up seven goals
in their first two games. With the imple-
mentation of a new defense, going from
a sweeper/stopper formation in the back
to. a four fullbacks across, it has taken
the Wolverines some time to develop as
a team.
Both Bre Bennett and Suzie Grech
have been strong in goal and head coach
Debbie Rademacher would not
announce today's starter. Grech and

Bennett had seven saves with 19 shots
on goal and four saves with 10 shots on
goal respectively in Michigan's two
games last week.
The Wolverines have the advantage
of familiarity due to facing off against
Kentucky in the fall four out of the last
five years. If the past is any indication
of how the game will go tonight, it
should be a close game.
Michigan's all-time record against
Kentucky is 2- I- with every game
decided by two goals or less.
Remaining consistent throughout the
whole game is a goal the Wolverines
feel they need to reach today. Against
Loyola Marymount, Michigan fell
behind by two goals in the first half and
had to regain momentum in the second
half to generate scoring opportunities. In
the second game of the Cal Invitation,
the Wolverines took a 2-1 lead going
into halftime, but Golden.Bears' for-
ward Kyla Sabo scored two goals back
to back early in the second half.
"There have been very good spots
where we've looked like the Michigan of
old," Forrester said. "The key to tonight
is putting together a whole game."
"We've seen Kentucky before and
we know that they are a very physical
and fast team," said Rademacher. "Our
goal is to put as much pressure as possi-
ble on them from the opening kick."
The Wolverines will also play Day-
ton on Sunday at 1.

Final tuneups remain f

Other than the Michigan-Washington
game, the Big Ten schedule is highlited
by, well, nothing.________
Wisconsin gets to FOOTBALL
face the frontrun-
ner for surprise Around Big Ten
team of the year
in Fresno State. But everyone else is just
waiting for an easy win.
ToNGlHr - No. 16 NORT'HWIST-
ERN (0-0) AT UNLV (1-0): This will
* be the first time that Northwestern will
take the field since the off-season death
of projected starting safety Rashidi
Wheeler in practice. The unfortunate
event has turned what was supposed to
be a summer filled with high expecta-
tions and excitement into one of signifi-
cant difficulty. It will be interesting to
see whether or not the Wildcats are able
to rally together for Wheeler.
Regardless, the Wildcats are coming
off a 2000 season in which they tied for
the Big Ten title, won eight games and
went to the Alamo bowl. Granted, they
got waxed by Nebraska 66-17, but this
is a team with 10 returning offensive
starters. Those 10 include running back
Damien Anderson - a Heisman candi-
date who ran for 1,914 yards and 22
touchdowns last year.
Northwestern will score points and
do it in a hurry, but UNLV is not exact-
ly a pushover. They beat Arkansas in
last year's Las Vegas Bowl, and return
14 starters of their own. But it doesn't
have enough defense to hang in this
one. t
NORTHWESTERN 45, UNLV 27
SATURDAY - NO. 19 FRESNO
STATE (2-0) AT NO. 23 WIScONSIN
(1-1): This year's biggest Bowl Cham-
pionship Series surprise contender -
Fresno State. Alright, so maybe it's a
'little early to jump to that conclusion.
But the Bulldogs have already knocked
off Colorado on the road and demol-
ished Oregon State, a supposed National
Championship contender, 44-24. A win
this week could catapult them into the
top 15 in the nation.
After holding off Virginia in a rain-
soaked opener, the Badgers took Ore-
gon down to the wire on the road before
'falling. A win over Fresno would proba-

t

by send the Badgers into the Big Ten
season 'at 3-1 while giving them some
serious momentum. Wisconsin coach
Barry Alvarez switched to the spread
offense popularized last year by North-
western and Purdue and the Badgers are
capable of scoring some points.
It's too much to ask for three consec-
utive Fresno upsets. Or is it?
FRESNO STATE 31, WISCONISN 28
SATURDAY - CENTRAL MICHIGAN
(1-0) AT MICHIGAN STATE (0-0): All
Michigan State has to do to prepare for
this one is watch the tapes of the 1991
and 1992 meetings when the Chippewas
stunned the Spartans, back-to-back
years.
This year, Michigan State has the
potential to be one of the most improved
teams in the Big Ten with big, punish-
ing running back T.J. Duckett leading
the charge behind a brand new offensive
line. Jeff Smoker has been handed the
reigns at quarterback and has some
weapons to throw to.
MICHIGAN' STATE 35, CENTRAL
MICHIGAN 10
SATURDAY - MIAMI (OHIO) (0-1)
AT IOWA (1-0): The RecjHawks of
Miami continue their trek through Big
Ten country. Iowa rolled over Bowling
Green last week. Miami played Michi-
gan tough, but they're still not that good
of a football team. They'll strap'em up
and give Iowa all they can handle
though.
IOWA 24, MIAMI (OHIO) 17
SATURDAY - AKRON (1-0) AT NO.
24 OHIO STATE (0-0): So it's not
exactly good enough to be classified as
the battle of Ohio, but Akron held off
Ohio University last week, so Akron's
got a win under its belt if nothing else.
This is a big year for the Buckeyes.
New coach Jim Tressel has the Buckeye
fans behind him - at least for now.
Another loss in Ann Arbor would be all
that it would take to get the scarlet and
gray supporters all riled up. But for the
time being, Tressel can sit back and
enjoy a patsy non-conference game.
OIO STATE 37, AKRON 14

Wisconsin started out with a tough schedule against Virginia and Oregon. Little did
the Badgers know it wouldn't get much easier with Fresno State for week three.

move to 2-0, one week after they
obliterated California on the road. A
win over Louisville next week as
well would send the Illini into the
Michigan game at 3-0 for the second
consecutive year. Northern Illinois
shouldn't provide too much resis-
tance to that goal.

SATURDAY - LOUISIANA-

Last year Minnesota beat Louisiana-

for next year's Minnesota vs. Louisiana-
