Both teams leave
2003 game in past

2004 Michigan roster

By Bob Hunt
Daily Sports Editor

A year has passed, and Minnesota coach Glen
Mason hasn't gotten much from it.
"It's still a game," Mason said. "It's not like
I learned my lesson because I got in a car acci-
dent, didn't have my seat belt (on) and went flying
through the window."
But the significance of Oct. 10, 2003, still lin-
gers in the minds of both Wolverine and Golden
Gopher fans.
Entering the game undefeated, Minnesota dom-
inated from the outset. The Golden Gophers ran
over the Wolverines and put together two punish-
ing scoring drives, going into halftime up 14-0.
With 58 seconds remaining in the third quar-
ter, Minnesota's Thomas Tapeh ran the ball in the
endzone from two yards out. The Golden Gophers
took a 28-7 lead, and the Little Brown Jug was in
their grasp. The Wolverines were about to be 4-3,
and the "Fire-Lloyd-Carr" supporters were light-
ing their torches and getting ready to storm town.
Then came the quarter that changed both teams'
seasons.
Navarre led an 80-yard touchdown drive, corn-
pleting nine-of-10 passes. Michigan cornerback
Jacob Stewart picked off a pass and returned it 34
yards for the score. 28-21. Minnesota fought back,
when quarterback Asad Abdul-Khaliq ran for 52
yards. 35-21. But then Navarre threw a bomb to
Braylon Edwards. 35-28. Chris Perry ran for a 10-
yard score. 35-35.
Minutes later,3then-true freshman Garrett
Rivas kicked a 33-yard field goal. The Wolver-
ines earned a 38-35 victory and the momentum
required to earn their first Rose Bowl trip since
1997. The Golden Gophers, on the other hand,
ended up in the Sun Bowl.
"It's definitely the most thrilling game I've

ever been a part of at any level," Edwards said.
That fourth quarter showed that the 2003 Wol-
verines had a killer instinct, something they later
used to defeat Purdue and Ohio State. Michigan
coach Lloyd Carr, though, put little stock in last
year's game as in relation to Saturday's game.
"You can get distracted by all that other stuff,"
Carr said. "I understand it's a great story, but by
the same token, what's going to help you win?
That's what we've got to deal with."
Just as much will be on the line as the teams
meet today. Once again, Minnesota will come
into the game as the higher-ranked team. Before
last year, the last time Minnesota was ranked
higher was 1960. Minnesota also does not have
Ohio State or Purdue on its schedule. So a victory
would put the Golden Gophers in the driver's seat
to head for Pasadena.
But today, there will be no pregame speeches
about last year.
"Do you really think that I got to remind them
that we blew a 21-point lead against Michigan in
the fourth quarter last year?" Mason said. "That's
not something we're very proud of, but that's not
something that's Michigan's fault. That's our
fault."
Mason said that the Golden Gophers spent as
much time looking at last year's film as they
would against any other team. Mason added that
he doesn't really care about the national recogni-
tion the team would receive if it were to win, or
the prospects of beating Michigan State, Illinois
or Indiana - all inferior teams - over the next
three weeks and being 9-0.
The Gophers won't be looking for revenge
today. They'll be looking for a victory.
"That really sounds goodtuntil the first play
when you get punched in the mouth," Mason
said.
