HOW THE AP TOP 25 FARED

Au-BURNED: Southern Cal. might be
without last year's Heisman win-
ner, Carson Palmer, for the first
time Saturday, but you might not
have known the difference.
The Trojans crushed Auburn 23-0,
the Tigers' first shutout loss at
Jordan-Hare Stadium since 1998.
Auburn's darkhorse national
championship hype is being sec-
ond guessed after posting a
measely 43 yards rushing on the
36 attempts. The Trojans also
recorded six sacks and created
three turnovers.

NEW AP
TOP 25

BACK IN BLACK: Nebraska's daunt-
ing blackshirt defense isn't ready
to fold up after last year's disap-
pointing 7-7 season. The Huskers
pulled out a vital win over No. 24
Oklahoma State at home on Satur-
day.
The Husker defense forced five
turnovers and held the Cowboys to
just 183 total yards on offense, en
route to a 17-7 victory.
LITTLE BROTHER is WATCHING: Despite
his starting job, Virginia Tech
quarterback Bryan Randall isn't
even the most visible athlete on
his team. But even in the shadow
of Marcus Vick's debut, Randall
went 22-for-28 for 278 yards pass-
ing in the Hokies' 49-28 win over
Central Florida.
Randall gave way to Vick for a
series in the second quarter on
Sunday, and he promptly led the
offense 80 yards, finishing on a
12-yard scoring run from running
back Kevin Jones. Vick, Michael's
younger brother, finished 7-for-10
for 100 yards and one TD.

Dropped Out: No. 15 Maryland, No. 23 Col-
orado State, No. 24 Oklahoma State

CHIPPEWAS
Continued from Page 13A
24-7 lead.
"(After Central scored), we kind
of put the ball down and went
nose-to-nose and ran the ball
down the field," Pape said. "We
went out there with the kind of
mentality that we were just going
to grind it out."
Michigan ran off 28 unanswered
points in the second half, leaving its
red zone difficulties from the first
half behind.
Navarre, who connected on 19-of-
33 passes for 245 yards, two touch-
downs and one interception, hit the
rarely-used Braylon Edwards on a
corner route for a 48-yard touch-
down pass to put Michigan ahead
31-7.
Edwards played mostly in third-
down situations Saturday. Carr
explained after the game that he and
Edwards, who switched to the No. 1
jersey in the spring, "we're not on
the same page."
However, Carr and Edwards were
on the same page long enough for
Edwards to lead the team in receiv-
ing with 78 yards and two touch-
downs on five receptions.
The Wolverines began the after-
noon 0-for-2 in their red zone
touchdown opportunities. After
Perry's 63-yard scamper to begin
the game, incomplete passes to
Tyrece Butler and Edwards in the
end zone forced an Adam Finley
field goal attempt.
Finley missed the 25-yarder,
bringing back memories of last sea-
son's opening-game kicking fiasco
against Washington.

On Michigan's second trip inside
the 20, sophomore Jason Avant
dropped a Navarre bullet in the end
zone on third down. Finley hit the
32-yard field goal to give Michigan
three points in its first two trips to
the red zone.
"There were a few times we were
in the red zone and didn't convert,"
Perry said. "That cannot happen
against the better teams on our
schedule. That is something we
need to do to be a great team."
Stopping the opponent's running
game is something else the Wolver-
ines will have to address if they
want to spend New Year's Day
somewhere other than Central
Florida.
Michigan allowed 218 yards rush-
ing to the Chippewas, who used
three runners to keep' Michigan's
defense on its heels for most of the
afternoon. Terrence Jackson, Jerry
Seymour and Kenan Lawhorne
rushed for five, 4.6 and six yards
per carry, respectively.
"Two hundred yards, no matter
who you're playing, is too many to
give up running the ball," defensive
tackle Grant Bowman said. "It's def-
initely going to be a huge concern
for next week."
WHO'S NEXT:
HOUSTON
The Cougars come into Ann Arbor rid-
ing high ater last week's 48-14
thrashing of Rice. Michigan has tan-
gled with Houston twice before, but
hasn't played thenschool erutmore
than a decade. True freshman quar-
terback Kevin Kolb started last week,
making him the fourth-straight new
opening-day starter at QB.
PLAYERS F THE GAME-

DISCLAIMER: Each week,
on page 5B of SportsMonday,
the football writers will break-
down the game film and rate
the student section's perform-
ance - or sometimes, its lack
thereof. The goal: to reach
"Buck Nut" level of insanity by
Nov. 22, when Ohio State rolls
into town.
We understand that it's Cen-
tral Michigan, but damnit,
it's also the season opener.
We know that you've got
more in you than what you
showed for the Chippewas.
We saw it first hand on the
Slip 'N Slide at Beta more
than an hour before the
game! Bottom line ... we've
seen more from you in past
years, and the noise level on
first- and second-down
defense has to improve. The
keys won't cut it on third
down either. The only posi-
tive to take away from Sat-
urday's game is that most
people hung around, but it
was also 17-7 in the third
quarter. Will you hang
around for Houston if it's a
blowout at halftime, or will
you head back to the frats?

Q

What's the correct pro-
nunciation of Matt
Gutierrez?
- Ken Wall, senior

Q

What's the deal with
Zia Combs? What does
he do during the
games?
- Mark Bonges, senior

TONY DING/Daily
OFFENSIVE - Chirs Perry: Perry
started the season with a bang,
rushing the ball 22 times for 232
yards and two touchdowns, the
largest rushing total of anyone in
the nation this weekend.
DEFENSIVE - Carl Dggs: In his
first game back since a broken leg,
Diggs finished the day with seven
tackles with one for a loss.

A Mark,
You can find Zia on the
sidelines wearing his
jersey, jean shorts and
his famous Zia grin. It
seems like he's a team
"hype man" of sorts.
There's a possibility he
may get some work
coaching.
