Illinois gets nod - BBDOOD nod from AP By Herschel Missenson Of The...
BBDOOD nod from AP By Herschel Missenson Of The Associated Press South Carolina has amassed 1,114 yards in its first two games and the task of trying to stop Coach Joe Morrison's Gamecocks now rests with Gary Moeller, Michigan's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. And Moeller may just have some knowledge of Morrison's thinking. You see, he is married to the former Ann Morrison of Lima, Ohio, who happens to be Joe's siste: "We haven't stopped anybody yet," says head Coach Bo Schem-bechler, which isn't quite true. The Wolverines stopped Notre Dame 20-12 and every time the Irish got close. Michigan forced them to settle for a field goal. Adds Schembechler: '"We've got the potential, but we haven't played any of those big. pounding teams or option teams, like South Carolina." The 15th-ranked Gamecocks, play ing at home, are 3-point favorites over the No. 19 Wolverines. The pick is . . . South Carolina 21-14. This week's only other game between members of the Associated Press Top Twenty finds No. 20 Illinois at No. 18 Nebraska, where the Cornhuskcrs are 7' --point favorites. The lllini didn't play well in losing to Southern Cal and barely defeating Southern Illinois, a Division I-AA team. But Nebraska was victimized by a passing team (Florida State) in its opener, so in the Upset Special of the Week . . . Illinois 24-17. Baylor at No. 3 Southern Cal (favored by 11): USC, already on NCAA probation until the end of the regular season, has been rocked by the disclosure of new rules violations, prompting the dismissal of an assistant coach and reprimands to two other athletic officials. The Trojans are ready to take out their frustrations on somebodv . . . Southern Cal 28-14.
