Iowa (2-2 Big Ten, 5-2 overall) hadn't

Autry gained 100 yards for a ninth
straight game, including a I-yard,
fourth-down scoring run with just over
six minutes left, as the Wildcats rallied
and survived a wild finish.
Northwestern (7-1) overcame a 14-0
deficit to stay atop the Big Ten with a 5-

school's second bowl berth ever and
first since the 1949 Rose Bowl.

Aaron Collins and Terry Killens
converted turnovers into touchdowns
and No. 16 Penn State, taking advan-
tage of the team with the worst turnover
margin in the Big Ten, beat Indiana, 45-
21, on Saturday.
The Nittany Lions (3-2 Big Ten, 6-
2) took advantage of the Hoosiers'
generosity by converting turnovers
on four straight Indiana possessions
into 17 first-half points. Indiana (0-5,
2-6) had five turnovers and also had a
punt blocked.
With Penn State up,7-0, Chris Dittoe,
who was coming off a knee injury,
relieved Adam Greenlee as Indiana's
quarterback. Dittoe's third pass de-
flected off the hands of Ajumu Stoner
to Collins, who avoided Stoner's grasp
and ran 80 yards to score.
On the next possession, Dittoe's pass
was intercepted by Brian Miller, setting
up a 9-yard touchdown run by Stephen
Pitts. Three plays later, Dittoe fumbled
after being sacked by Killens and the ball
was caught by defensive end Todd Atkins.
Wisconsin 45, Michigan State 14
After Wisconsin quarterback Darrell
Bevell questioned the heart of his of-
fensive unit last week, Badgers' line-
backer Eric Unverzagt challenged his
teammates to turn their season around
or turn in their jerseys.
The defense responded to
Unverzagt's sermon, delivered in a
players-only meeting. It sacked Tony
Banks seven times and picked off three
ofhis passes in Saturday's 45-14 thrash-
ing of Michigan State before a home-
coming crowd of 78,043 at Camp
Randall Stadium.
And the offensive line answered
Bevell's candid criticisms, opening up
the running lanes for 171 yards and
giving Bevell time to complete 17 of
27 passes for 265 yards and three touch-
downs.
The fifth-year senior had accused
the struggling offensive unit of defi-
ciencies in desire and effort after break-
downs in consecutive losses to Ohio
State and Northwestern.

Brown Jug remains in Ann Arbor

By Ryan White
Daily Sports Editor
If the Little Brown Jug stays in Ann
Arbor very much longer, it may be con-
sidered a permanent resident.
Michigan has not lost the coveted wa-
ter bottle since 1986, but that loss is still in
Wolverine coach Lloyd Carr's memory.

pared to only 21 victories for the Go-
phers.
One would think that Michigan might
get so used to having the Jug around that
it might begin to take it for granted.
But that's not the case according to
quarterback Brian Griese.
"People don't realize how big the tro-
phy is," he said.
QUARTERBACK CONTROVERSY?: With
Michigan quarterback Scott Dreisbach
dressed for the first time since Sept. 16
against Boston College, Carr now has a

to Michigan Athletic Director Joe
Roberson. "I don't know ifhe values my
opinion that much, but I think (Carr has)
done a great job. '
"We're 7-1, and should be 8-0, and
there's no one else we'd like to see as
coach."
FLAG ON THE PLAY: No matter how
easily you win, you can never fully please
a coach, and Saturday was no exception.
Carr was not at all happy with the
Wolverines' nine penalties which cost
the team 91 yards.

Associated Press
To inspire his team, a Colorado player
beat a war drum before Saturday's game
against Nebraska. The gimmick didn't
work.
Tommie Frazier threw for a career-
high 241 yards and two touchdowns
and ran for a score as the second-ranked
Cornhuskers continued their domina-
tion of the No.7 Buffaloes with a 44-21
victory.
Ahman Green ran for two touchdowns
and Kris Brown kicked three field goals
for Nebraska, which beat Colorado for
the fourth straight year and extended
the nation's longest winning streak to
21 games.
The Cornhuskers, who never trailed

to Boulder, but is scheduled to play
next week against Iowa State.
No. 3 Florida 52, Georgia 17
Georgia may not want the Florida
Gators back in Athens, Ga., any time
soon.
The third-ranked Gators, playing in
Sanford Stadium for the first time in 63
years, routed the Bulldogs, 52-17, Sat-
urday with Danny Wuerffel passing for
242 yards and five touchdowns in less
than three quarters, three of those to
Chris Doering.
Wuerffel had the Gators in front, 21-
0, in the first 12 minutes, leaving little
doubt that Florida (-0) would win for
the first time in five games on Georgia's
home field.

That season
Michigan was 9-
0 and No. 2 in the
country when the
