YOU FACE A TEAM THAT BEAT YOU LAST SEASON, THAT'S GOING
BE ON YOUR MIND AND IT'S GOING TO BE MOTIVATION."
-SENIOR DEFENSIVE LINEMAN JAKE FRYSINGER SAID
HOW THE AP TOP 25 FARED
Associated Press Poll for week of October 9.
Games updated through October 16.
SOMETHING's BRUIN IN L.A.: For the
last few years, UCLA has had as
much talent as anybody, but has
failed to produce on the field.
But the times, they are a-chang-
ing. On Saturday, UCLA made a
statement to the rest of the
nation by pounding then-No. 9
Senior tailback DeShaun Foster
ran for 301 yards and four touch-
downs, including a 92-yard jaunt
in the fourth quarter, as UCLA
improved to 5-0.
PUT ON YOUR HELMET, BROCK: Florida
sophomore quarterback Rex
Grossman had been putting up
video game-style numbers ... until
Saturday's game at Auburn.
Grossman threw for over 300
yards but tossed four intercep-
tions as No. 2 Florida was stunned
by the Tigers, 23-20. Auburn kick-
er Damon Duval won the game
when he nailed a 44-yard field
goal with just 10 seconds left.
DANTZING IN THE STREETS: Entering
the season, many people were
touting Clemson quarterback
Woodrow Dantzler as a Heisman
Trophy candidate. On Saturday,
Dantzler demonstrated why he
could be at the Downtown Athlet-
ic Club in December.
Dantzler passed for 333 yards and
four touchdowns as the Tigers
beat North Carolina State, 45-37
... but that's not all.
The senior standout also rushed
for 184 yards and two more touch-
downs, including a 55-yard scoring
run in the first quarter.

yard line after a 42-yard punt
return by wide receiver Marquise
Walker. Three plays later, fullback
B.J. Askew runs three yards for a
Hayden Epstein makes the point
Michigan 7, Purdue 7
On their next possession, the
Wolverines take only 1:55 to
score again on a 5-play, 64-yard
drive. Walker scores from 43
yards away on a pass from quar-
terback John Navarre.
Epstein kicks the extra point.
Michigan 14, Purdue 7
Purdue takes over the ball at the
Michigan 14-yard line after a
Ronald Bellamy fumble. In four
plays, Purdue loses 14 yards after
a holding penalty and a sack by
safety Cato June.
Dorsch kicks a 45-yard field goal
with 3:55 left in the half.
Michigan 14, Purdue 10
Michigan grinds out a 15-play, 71-
yard drive. Chris Perry runs 26
yards for an apparent touchdown
but it is called back after an illegal
Eight plays later, B.J. Askew
scores from a yard out.
Epstein converts the extra point.
Michigan 21, Purdue 10
Michigan drives from its own 29-
deep into Purdue territory. On 3rd
and four, running back Chris Perry

short of a first down.

Auburn takes bite out of Gators
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Damon
Duval kicked a 44-yard field goal with
10 seconds left and Auburn intercepted
four of Rex Grossman's passes to
shock No. 1 Florida 23-20 Saturday
The Tigers (4-0 SEC, 5-1 overall)
entered the game as a 21-point under-
dog against a Florida team that looked
invincible in winning its first five
games by an average of 40 points
Auburn fans stormed the field and
wrestled down one of the goal posts,
while Florida players headed to the
lockerroom with their national champi-
onship hopes in serious doubt.
It was Duval's third straight game-
winning field goal, following a 48-
yarder with 18 seconds left to beat
Mississippi State and a 49-yarder in the
final minutes against Vanderbilt.
With the stumble, Florida (5-1, 3-1)
opened the door for No. 2 Miami to
recapture the top spot in the rankings
after dominating Florida State 49-27.
Backup quarterback Daniel Cobb
played most of the game for Auburn,
rebounding from a 4-of-I5 start to
throw for 152 yards.
Cobb finished 11-of-23 and didn't
throw an interception after entering the
game 5-of-8 on the season.
Grossman, who had only been inter-
cepted three times' all season, looked
out of synch most of the night against
the nation's fourth-rated pass defense.
The Gators had rolled up 500-plus
yards in each of their previous five
games, but managed only one big play.
Despite holding Auburn to 1 yard on
its first 12 plays, Florida found itself in
unfamiliar territory at halftime: trailing
It was the first time the Gators had-
n't scored a touchdown in a first half
since a 37-17 loss to Georgia in 1997.
MIAMI (FLA.) 49, FLORIDA STATE 27:
The streaks are over for Florida State,
and so is another run at the national
Ken Dorsey threw three touchdown
passes and No. 2 Miami pulled away
with a 28-point third quarter in a domi-
nating 49-27 victory over the Semi-
noles on Saturday.
The loss ended No. 14 Florida State's
54-game home unbeaten streak as well
as its 37-game winning streak at Doak
Campbell Stadium dating to 1991, when
the Hurricanes beat them 17-16.
Florida State (3-2), which played in
the national title game the past three
seasons, also makes its earliest exit
from the title chase since 1990. Now in
jeopardy is Florida State's record run
of 14 consecutive 10-win seasons and
Ohio State's Jonathan Wells ran for 179 yards Saturday against the Northwestern
The Heisman pretenders
Before every season begins, the so-called experts claim that
they know who will be the next Andre Ware, Ty Detmer or Gino
Torretta. Most Heisman predictions, though, look like second-
rate guesses after the first few weeks are over. Here's a list of
those who had high expectations, but bottomed out.
Damien Anderson RB, Northwestern
Why he's no longer a top contender: After begin-
ning the season with 302 yards and four touch-
downs in his first two games, Anderson has been
shut down in his past three games. Averaging less
than four yards a carry in those games, he's only
reached the endzone twice.
Why he's got a shot: Ron Dayne had a 19-yard
game in his Heisman year, but he also broke the
NCAA rushing record and reached the Rose Bowl.
T.J. Duckett RB, Michigan State
Why he's no longer a top contender: Michigan
State has adopted a pass-happy offense with new
star Charles Rogers, meaning Duckett is no
longer the focus in their scheme. He also shares
the tailback role with two others in Little Johns
Flowers and Tyrell Dortch. His numbers are not
bad, but being number eight in the Big Ten isn'tx
going to impress the voters.
Why he's got a shot: He can always win in 2002.
Antwaan Randle El QB/RB/WR, Indiana
Why he's no longer a top contender: He's been
moved from position to position so much that
none of his statistics are very dominant. Plus, the
Hoosiers aren't good (1-4) and they don't get
much national exposure. Without a bowl game,
voters won't give anything to the most exciting
player in college football.
Why he's got a shot: He could become the first
player to play all 22 positions on the field.
Chris Simms QB, Texas
Why he's no longer a top contender: He's only a
junior, much of the media believes senior Apple-
white should be the starter and his game against
Oklahoma was only turning heads away.
Why he's got a shot: With a little help, Simms and
the Longhorns are not out of the Big 12 title game
or BCS picture yet. Getting to both and more
games like last Saturday may influence many vot-
ers, but don't expect him in New York until 2002.
Ken Simonton RB, Oregon State
Why he's no longer a top contender: Oregon State
has three losses, in which Simonton has only mus-
tered a total of 87 yards. Enough said.
Why he's got a shot: He has no shot, the Beavers'
boosters should be happy they didn't put Simon-
ton on a wall. Hecaught the Sports Illustrated
curse with its prediction of Oregon State being
national champions and Simonton as the Heisman
Jason Thomas QB, UNLV
Why he's no longer a top contender: The only good
small-market quarterback is in the West. Unfortu-
nately for Thomas, his name is David Carr and he
plays for Fresno State. UNLV is 2-4 with no prime-
time media exposure only hurt the one-time presea-
son sleeper and his current 135.3 passing yards
per game will keep him from reaching New York.
Why he's got a shot: Are you kidding?k
Top 5 finishes in the final AP media
poll. The Seminoles still have games
against four Top 25 teams, including
By extending their winning streak to
15, the Hurricanes (5-0) made their
claim to regain the top spot they lost
last week to the Gators. But the players
will be more satisfied they were the
team that knocked the Seminoles out of
title picture. Last season, Florida State
made it to the title game even though
Miami beat the 'Noles and both teams
finished with one loss.
Holding a 21-13 lead entering the
second half, Miami struck early and
late in the third period, with two TDs
in 65 seconds early and two more TDs
within 54 seconds late before a crowd
of 83,836 - the second largest crowd
at Doak Campbell.
WISCONSIN 20, OHIo STATE 17:
Recreating the same comeback from
two years ago, Wisconsin spotted No.
21 Ohio State a 17-0 lead and then
roared back for a 20-17 upset victory
Mark Neuser's 33-yard field goal
with 2:13 remaining capped the revival
that came a week after the Badgers'
humiliating 63-32 loss at home to win-
Ohio State (3-2, 2-1 Big Ten), which
routed then-No. 13 Northwestern 38-
20 last Saturday behind a bruising run-
ning game, rushed for minus-4 yards in
the second half.
The last time Wisconsin (2-1 Big
Ten, 4-3 overall) made the trip to Ohio
Stadium, Ohio State built a 17-0 lead
only to watch the Badgers reel off the
next 42 in a 42-17 victory.
This time, Ohio State again dominat-
ed the first half but Wisconsin bounced
back behind the running of Anthony
Davis and the running and passing of
quarterback Brooks Bollinger. It was
Bollinger who also engineered the
upset of the 12th-ranked Buckeyes by
the unranked Badgers in 1999.
Davis, who missed the Indiana loss
with turf toe, gained 103 yards on 26
carries. Bollinger completed 12 of 22
passes for 202 yards with one intercep-
A pair of Davis runs on the Badgers'
final drive gave the Badgers a first
down at the 20, from where they ran on
the next three plays. Neuser then con-
verted the 33-yard kick.
Ohio State's last chance started at its
38. Bellisari, who struggled with his
passing all day, ran for a 1-yard gain
and overthrew three passes before the
Badgers ran out the clock.
Iowa's Ladell Betts (46).
Even with a bye week to prepare, the
Wolverines will have plenty to deal with
when they visit Kinnick Stadium on Octo-
Iowa, which has yet to lose at home, is
coming offtwo-straight losses to confer-
ence opponents Purdue and Michigan
State. Its 1-2 record in the Big Ten (3-2
overall) is deceiving as both losses could
have gone either way.
Even with the losses, senior quarterback
Kyle McCann and the rest of the
Hawkeyes' offense has produced a Big
Ten best 32.2 ppg. McCann also leads
the Big Ten in passing efficiency and
knows how to spread the ballto two of
the conference's best in Kahlil Hill and
De'Von Clark, each with over 300 yards
receivingand at least 20 catches.
The Hawkeyes have one homne game next
week against Antwaan Randle El and the
rest of the Indiana Hoosiers before wel-
BIG TEN STANDINGS
So we fooled you all by look-
ing decent last week. In fact,
we have so little clue of what
we're doing, that Schwartz
actually picked Washington as
his best bet! And he was the
only one undefeated to that
We're a joke. We sat in our
building yesterday and con-
gratulated Phillips for winning
this week. And he was 7-8!
That's like the Lions winning
