C-6-SPORTS THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Sunday, September 16, 1984 B uckeyes, Byars Bull Through Washington State BY CINDY STARR Enquirer Reporter COLUMBUS, Ohio-The first time Keith Byars carried the ball for Ohio State.Saturday, he gained two yards and received a rough welcome from about half the Washington State defense. "They were trying to set the tone," Byars said. "They were trying to intimidate me. But I don't get intimidated easily. In fact, I never get intimidated." Washington State learned that soon enough. Byars went on to set his own tone to the tune of 145 yards rushing, 47 yards receiving and two touchdowns, as the ninth-ranked Buckeyes crushed the Cougars, 44-0, at Ohio Stadium. THE VICTORY was a satisfying one for Ohio State (2-0) on several counts: Mike Tomczak, the senior quarterback who broke his leg during the spring game last May, played for the first time this season and on three possessions directed three touchdown drives. He survived a brutal tackle after misfiring on his first pass and went on to complete five of seven passes for 55 yards and a touchdown. The Buckeye defense, which starts only three seniors, blanked a Washington State team that had scored 69 points in its previous two games. "This is a heckuva team to shut out," said coach Earle Bruce. The shutout was the first for the Buckeyes since a 21-0 victory over Wisconsin in 1980. Junior linebacker Thomas "Pepper" Johnson led the defense with 11 tackles, a fumble recovery in the endzone and an interception. And Byars, the junior tailback from Dayton, scored two touchdowns in a game for the eighth straight time, moved up to No. 17 on OSU's all-time rushing list and gave another small boost to his chances of winning the Heisman, a feat he modestly hopes to accomplish twice. "There's no doubt in my mind I want to win it," Byars said. "And I don't want to wait till next year. I want to be a two-time Heisman Trophy winner." Byars' Ohio State Idol is two-time Heisman winner Archie Griffin, and his philosophy on rushing is basic: "You have to have the attitude that you don't want to go down." Byars also has a 6-2, 223-pound body that doesn't want to go down, and WSU was powerless against him. "We simply were not strong enough to compete," said WSU coach Jim Walden. Early on, it looked as if Washington State might give OSU a challenge. The Cougars drove as far as the OSU 43-yard line on their first two possessions and forced OSU to punt on the fourth play of its first possession. But the trend was short-lived. Ohio State found its groove behind Byars and sophomore quarterback Jim Karsatos and scored on every succeeding possession of the first half. "SOME DAYS you get a lot of flowers and some days you get a lot of stones," said Walden. "Today we got a lot of Buckeyes. You cannot afford a bad offensive day when you have the limitations on defense that we have." OSU, dominating the line of scrimmage, snuffed out WSU's attempts to run and pass. And OSU's line gave Karsatos ample time to execute a battery of running and passing plays. When a journalist suggested to Bruce that the Buckeye offense was more imaginative than usual, Bruce smiled. "Imaginative?" he repeated. "That's a good word." OSU went ahead, 3-0, on a 43-yard Held goal by Rich Spangler late In the first quarter. The Buckeyes drove 80 yards on their next possession to make the score 10-0 with 11:24 to go in the second quarter. Fullback Roman Bates scored from the 3-yard line. Tomczak entered the game minutes later and promptly led OSU 52 yards on 10 plays to another touchdown. Tomczak's 17-yard pass to flanker Mike Lanese was the big play In the drive. Byars scored from the one, diving over the goal line, and OSU led, 17-0. Tomczak, who hopes to start next week against Iowa, led one more scoring drive before the half, a 63-yard, 10-play effort that ended with one of the more interesting plays of the afternoon. From the 5-yard line, Tomczak faked and then lobbed the ball toward the deep left corner of the end zone. Tight end Judd Groza, the Intended receiver, reached skyward for the alley-oop and dove. As he fell on his face In the end zone, the ball sailed over him and landed in the arms of Byars, who was deeper in the end zone. TO WHOM was Tomczak throwing? "It was to Judd," he said. "I don't think he wanted It as badly as Keith did." , WSU rallied in the second half behind quarterback Mark Rypien, but two long drives ended with turnovers. OSU scored again with seven minutes left in the game when backup tailback John Wooldridge cut left and ran 32 yards on a diagonal into the end zone. An interception set up another OSU touchdown less than two minutes later. Karsatos faked a handoff and scored from the 6, and OSU led, 37-0. Backup tailback Kevin Delaney, the son of associate athletic director Richard Delaney, who is hospitalized with cancer, scored the final touchdown on a 2-yard run.

But really now. Mallory took over a revolving-door, Indiana football program this f all that has undergone coaching changes, uniform changes and even stadium decor changes In each of the last three seasons." He's quickly discovering that changing a perennial loser into a winner is a whole lot more difficult. And the Hoosiers were emphatic losers here Saturday as Kentucky pinned a 48-14 loss on them, in Mallory's home coaching debut. M '" In last week's season opener, the Indiana coach said his team was its own worst enemy after blowing an early lead to fall at Duke in the final minutes. F6'RTHE first half Saturday, IU was riot only that, the Hoosiers were also Kentucky's best friend. Two Indiana fumbles resulted in a , pair of Kentucky touchdowns as the 'Cats roared out to a 31-0 half-time lead. But IU found a number of other innovative ways to put itself in sucjh a deep hole. The Hoosiers were fortunate it wasn't worse. "I'dori't think there's a whole lot you can say after suffering a loss like that," Mallory said. "We made'some crucial errors that seemed to snowball and put us in a hole early. "We- made every gosh-darn mistake In the book in that first half. Mistakes were made that were so costly it's shocking. Then we lost our poise. We got shook.-But Kentucky is a sound come-after-itteam." The shortcomings were by no means limited to the Hoosier offense.' "' " "Defensively, I look at our tackling it was lousy." Mallory said. "We had some breakdowns in assignments. That's ridiculous." KENTUCKY COACH Jerry Claiborne preferred to believe his Cats' had at least something to do with Indiana's troubles. "The biggest thing was we got every' break in the book the first half,". Claiborne said as his club went to 2-0. "I think we made some of those breaks, and we were able to take advantage of them. I thought we played pretty good defense and our line blocked really well. The first half I think we played about as intense as we can play." Ths Wildcats took the opening kickoff- and drove to IU's 12-yard line before stalling and settling for a 29-yard Jim Rider field goal. Kentucky didn't have to wait long for the gifts to come pouring in, though. Hoosier tailback Bobby Howard fumbled a pass reception from quarterback Steve Bradley to Wildcajt linebacker Larry Smith at Indiana 45 on the next series. TEN PLAYS later, Kentucky tailback Mark Logan crashed into the end zone from six yards out for the'Cats' first touchdown.

Associated Press Top-Ranked Huskers Bury Gophers FROM ENQUIRER WIRES LINCOLN, Neb.-Jeff Smith rushed for 183 yards and Craig Sundberg threw two touchdown passes In No. 1-ranked Nebraska's 38-7 victory over Minnesota. Smith, the successor to Heisman Trophy winner Mike Rozier as the Cornhuskers' I-back, gained 107 yards in the opening quarter and scored the game's first points on a 13-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. Smith carried 26 times to accumulate his career-hign yardage total before going to the sidelines midway through the third period. Sundberg completed eight of 10 passes for 134 yards. The fifth-year senior threw scoring passes of 28 yards to Brian Hiemer and 7 yards to Jim Thompson. Nebraska allowed only one touchdown for the second straight week. Minnesota scored on a 63-yard bomb from freshman reserve quarterback Reggie Foggie to Valdez Baylor, who sneaked 10 yards behind the Cornhusker defense before catching the pass. Nebraska had a 352-75 advantage in total yards at halftime, but back-to-back fumbles lost by fullback Tom Rathman stymied the Cornhuskers in the early going. The Huskers, mixing Smith's tenacious running with Sund- berg's accurate short passes, then produced scoring marches of 77 and 95 yards and took advantage of a short Minnesota punt for a third touchdown to lead 21-0 at halftime. Minnesota had suffered a school-record 84-13 loss to Nebraska last year.
