Coming off a lackluster 34-
26 victory over Ball State, the
Wolverines (7-0 Big Ten, 11-0
overall) needed a strong per-

up to the looming showdown
in Columbus. They delivered.

A defining moment on
the road to Columbus

Daily StaffReporter
As the scores of other college
football games appeared on
the scoreboards in the middle
of the second quarter Satur-
day at Memorial Stadium,
every Michigan fan's head
turned and watched intently,
waiting for the score of the
Ohio State game.
Finally, it came up: Ohio
profs fight

State 21, Northwestern 3.
The heads then turned
slightly upward to see an
identical score: Michigan 21,
Indiana 3.
Most realized it at the exact
same moment. It was actually
going to happen: Michigan
and Ohio State will meet this
Saturday undefeated for the
first time since 1973.
By the end of the third
quarter, with Memorial Sta-
dium on the northwest end of

Indiana University's campus
filled primarily with Michi-
gan faithful, the celebrations
Chants of "Beat the Buck-
eyes" and "Go Blue" over-
whelmed the meager sound of
the scattered Hoosier fans left
in the stands.
Even here in Bloomington,
it was clear thatthis game was
only a stepping stone to one of
the most important college

preaches health
For theDaily
University researchers are
using a new tool to combat
poor health: a pulpit.
In a campaign supported
by several studies, nutrition-
ists are teaming up with pre-
dominantly black churches to
preach agospelofhealthyeat-
ing. They hope their sermons
will strike at the underlying
causes of several genetic dis-
eases that plague black com-
munities at higher rates than
the rest of the population.
Body and Soul, the nation-
wide program that the Uni-
versity's Comprehensive

Cancer Center launched
locally last year, hopes to pull
on strong social ties within
black churches to promote
healthy eating.
The program encourages
parishioners to eat more
fruits and vegetables. Stud-
ies have shown this simple
change can lower the risk of
heart disease, diabetes, high
cholesterol, stroke and some
types of cancer.
So far, eight Ann Arbor and
Ypsilanti congregations have
agreed to participate. Nata-
sha Blakeney Wilson, the
cancer center's minority out-
reach coordinator, brought
the program to three of those
churches last month.
