FOOTBALL Tackling I h~ii iff L_ 1^3* if i ^^ " ^^^^ Their Season By Nicole Marnnio CENTRAL MICHIGAN HOUSTON NOTRE DAME OREGON INDIANA IOWA MINNESOTA ILLINOIS PURDUE MICHIGAN STATE NORTHWESTERN OHIO STATE With hard work and leadership by an experienced set of captains and coaches, the University of Michigan football team experienced a tremendous season. The Wolverines ' ended the season with an impressive 10-2 record and a 7-1 record against conference opponents, thereby earning them the Big Ten Championship title. The season opener against the Central Michigan Chippewas on August 30 th was only the beginning of what would prove to be an exciting season. This game marked head coach Lloyd Carr ' s 100 th career game, and the team played aggressively as a testament to this fact. Records were broken as Chris Perry carried 232 yards that game, which was the most ever by a Wolverine rusher in a season opener. The game ended in a Wolverine victory, with a final score of 45-7. The following weekend, the team demolished Houston at the Big House. John Navarre earned the most completions for a Michigan quarterback in a career. A week later, ESPN ' s College Football Game Day crew was present to witness Michigan shut out one of the biggest rivals, Notre Dame, with a score of 38-0. This was the first shut out by Michigan against Notre Dame since 1 902, and the 38-0 score was the most points ever scored by either team in the history of the series. Unfortunately, the Wolverines did not have what it took to defeat the Oregon Ducks on September 20 th , as Oregon enjoyed a victory at Autzen Stadium. With the pressure on and adrenaline running, the Wolverines met the Indiana Hoosiers, their first Big Ten opponent, with victory on their minds. And that was just what they did, making their conference record 1-0. Unfortunately, the Wolverines could not hold their composure as they lost the next game to the Iowa Hawkeyes at Kinnick Stadium.

Spirits were high once again on October 10 th , as Michigan achieved the greatest comeback in school history, defeating the Minnesota Gophers 38-35 and retaining possession of the Little Brown Jug. This marked the 1 00 th anniversary of the game that began this rivalry, and the Brown Jug was the oldest trophy in college football.
