Notre Dame (Sept. 10), L 17-10: Not an unfamilar sight for
Michigan -a September loss. The Irish usedcan effective opening
drive to take a 7-0 lead. They never looked back and were able to
hold off the Wolverines, despite Michigan's late-game comeback.


Wisconsin (Sept. 24): Let's be honest, Temple never
had a chance against the Badgers. Wisconsin led 51-0,
at halftime. That's pretty pathetic even for a Division II
program. Senior tight end Owen Daniels caught a career-
high three touchdown passes in the blowout win.

Football Saturday
There's something special about
football Saturdays in Ann Arbor.
Tradition is everywhere, from stu-
dents and alumni singing "The
Victors" to the team running onto
the field and jumping to touch the
banner. One hundred twenty-six
years after the Wolverines first
suited up for a football game,
those traditions are part of what
makes Michigan football what it
is today.
Football Saturday is one of our
traditions at The Michigan Daily.
In each section, we preview Mich-
igan's upcoming opponent, pro-
viding our breakdown of how the
two teams' offenses, defenses and
special teams match up. We also
profile players and coaches to give
our readers a better understanding
of what the Wolverines are like on
and off the field. And we have a lit-
tle fun, too, simulating Michigan's
game in Procrastination Station
and making our picks for some of
the weekend's biggest games.
After this issue, there will be
four additional Football Saturdays,
one for each of the remaining home
games, including the 102nd meet-
ing between Michigan and Ohio
State. Every week, we seek to pro-
vide the most in-depth coverage of
Michigan football in the country.
We hope you enjoy it.

As Michigan's disappointing 17-10 upset loss, to
Notre Dame last Saturday begins to fade into his-
tory, the Wolverines shift their attention to another
opponent coming to the Big House tomorrow. East-
ern Michigan is the second Mid-American team the
No. 14 Wolverines have faced this year - Northern
Illinois was the first - and Michigan is looking to
remain perfect against MAC competition. The meet-
ing is the seventh between the two schools, with
Michigan winning the previous six, including a59-20
victory in 1998 on the most recent occasion. Here's a
look at how the opposing units stack up:
Michigan passing offense vs. Eastern Michigan
passing defense:
Chad Henne had a nightmare game against Notre
Dame, completing just 19 of his 44 attempts and
throwing a costly interception on the one-yard line to
end a potential scoring drive. Henne's lone touchdown
pass came with just a few minutes remaining, and
the quarterback failed to get the Wolverines into the
end zone after the scoring gap closed to seven points.
Yet Henne looked fantastic in his last action against a
MAC secondary, striking for 198 aerial yards and two
passing touchdowns in the first half of the Northern
Illinois game alone. And even though tight end Tim
Massaquoi is out with an injury, Tyler Ecker showed
that he is more than capable of reeling in Henne's
throws - the backup hauled in seven receptions for
74 yards against the Irish.
Eastern Michigan, meanwhile, hasn't inter-
cepted a single pass this season. The Eagles
allowed Cincinnati quarterback Dustin Grutza to
complete 17 of his 26 attempts with two touch-
downs in their first game. Even Jerry Babb, Loui-
siana-Lafayette's signal-caller, went 21-for-29
and rolled up 228 yards against Eastern last week.
That's not exactly effective pass defense.
Edge: Michigan
Michigan rushing offense vs. Eastern Michigan
rushing defense:
The big story last week didn't center so much
around freshman Kevin Grady, who ran for 79
yards on 18 carries against Notre Dame in his
first game carrying the bulk of the rushing load.
Instead, most people are worried about Mike Hart,
the sophomore backfield star who was forced out
of the contest early with what appeared to be a leg

injury. It's expected that Hart won't see the field
this week. The good news is that, even without
Hart, the Wolverines are still more than capable of
putting together an effective ground game. Despite
some fumbling issues, Grady has looked very solid
in the first two games of his collegiate career, while
Max Martin, Jerome Jackson and Alijah Bradley
give Michigan even more options.
The Eagles have given up an astounding 475 rush-
ing yards and three ground scores in their first two
games while allowing their opponents to carry the
ball for more than five yards per attempt. Eastern has
also managed just two sacks and five tackles for loss
on the year to this point. This looks to be an extremely
one-sided matchup.
Edge: Michigan
Eastern Michigan passing offense vs. Michigan
passing defense:
The Eagles feature a spread offense, a system the
Wolverines had trouble stopping last year. It's pretty
safe to assume Eastern was scheduled specifically for
that reason, since practice makes perfect. But Eagles
quarterback Matt Bohnet is the real deal. Bohnet
came to Eastern from Iowa, and last year, in his first
season in Ypsilanti, the quarterback threw for over
2,800 yards and 21 touchdowns. This season, he has
430 passing yards while completing nearly 70 percent

Edge: Push

of his attempts. Bohnet also has three scoring tosses
with no interceptions. Eric Deslauriers and A.J. Ben-
nett lead the receiving corps with a combined 28
catches for 275 yards and all three of Bohnet's passing
Michigan's secondary allowed Notre Dame quar-
terback Brady Quinn to complete 19 of 30 passes
with a pair of touchdowns last week. The Wolver-
ines sacked Quinn three times - including two by
cornerback Leon Hall - but the Irish quarterback
spread the ball around to seven different receivers.
Corner Grant Mason led Michigan with 16 tackles
last week, but this unit has managed just one intercep-
tion in the first two games.

Eastern Michigan rushing offense vs. Michigan
rushing defense:
Bohnet is a running threat as well. The quar-
terback leads the Eagles with 150 yards and two
rushing touchdowns this year. As far as running
backs go, freshmen Tim Conner and Dwayne
Harrison have each seen significant playing
time, but neither has been impressive. The duo
has carried the ball for just 127 yards total
through two games.
Compared to its showing against Northern Illi-
nois on Sept. 3, the Wolverines' rushing defense
