i;!C 10 THE COURIER-JOURNAL, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1980 BIG TEN FOOTBALL fPCLA wins its 'Rose Bowl,' staggers Ohio State 17-0 mi l .. ' Associated Press Mix COLUMBUS, Ohio UCLA All-America safety Kenny Easley marched into the dressing room yesterday after a 17-0 victory over Ohio Ctnta chrtuHno "Thlc ie nnr Daco S owl." tji'.; Easley referred to the probation jj that bars UCLA and four other Pacif- ic-10 Conference teams from any pestle season games this season. "Ohio State took us too lightly," Easley claimed. "They said they had ; three easy games us, Syracuse and Northwestern. Their Ail-American 2 "quarterback (Art Schlichter) couldn't m throw the ball to anyone because he 25 couldn't see over our onrushing line- men." 'i .. W . ! HU brings back fits runners, uses Ithem to nip Duke By RUSS BROWN Courier-Journal Indiana Sport Editor V BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Lonnie Johnson and Mike Harkrader are back, which is good news for the Indi- iv ana University offense. , Actually, Johnson and Harkrader, fkl IU's tailback tandem, haven't been t away, they just haven't been very no- ticeable lately. Yesterday they were. Johnson ran for a record-tying 211 . yards in 32 carries and Harkrader ; added 87 yards in 17 tries as the Hoo-'siers mounted their most potent " "ground attack of the year and turned back winless Duke 31-21 before 43,120 fans in Memorial Stadium. ; In all, IU powered its way through the overmatched Duke line for 350 yards rushing out of a total offense of 471; a drastic contrast to last week's 49-7 rout of Colorado in which quarterback Tim Clifford passed for 345 yards. .'We talked a lot this week about the running backs not carrying their share of the load," said Harkrader, whose afternoon's work nearly equaled the 89 yards he gained in the three previous games. "I think the running backs were just getting lazy and rely-iflg too much on Sonny (Clifford) throwing the ball. We hadn't had too much success running, so this week we; worked real hard and things seemed to fall in place today. "The line was coming off the ball and when they do that, it's up to you to give the extra effort it takes, break some tackles, make some moves or something." Harkrader's total included a five-yard run touchdown run with just 15 seconds left that made the victory look more decisive than it was. John Purdue waits, Herrmann delivers win Aitoclatod Prats WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. A sudden change of mind paid off for the Purdue Boilermakers, coach Jim Young said yesterday after his team defeated Miami of Ohio 28-3. With his team trailing the MidAmerican Conference visitor 3-0 late in the first half, Young said he was ready to replace quarterback Mark Herrmann with freshnan Scott Campbell. Herrmann had completed only two of his first 12 passes and thrown one of three Miami Interceptions, setting up the field goal, when Young considered making the switch. ' But he didn't, and Herrmann went on to complete 21 of 39 passes for 291 yard and three touchdowns. "After the next to the last series of the first half, I decided to go with Campbell," Young said. "I told Campbell to get warmed up, that he was going in. I think Mark sat down. "At the last minute don't ask me why I made a 360-degree turn." ; The Boilermaker coach said he not only decided to leave Herrmann in but elected to turn the whole game over to him. J'He called all his plays after that. I just stood and watched." Miami coach Tom Reed, who may Have lost his senior quarterback. Chuck Hauck, to surgery, said injuries hurt his club. "I was missing my original starting backfield. (Greg) Jones had an elbow injury and didn't dress. (Paul) Dren-nan had an ankle injury, and then Hauck was hurt today and that hurt us even worse." . Hauck suffered a knee injury when he was tackled for a four-yard loss just prior to the Miami field goal. . Wally Jones, Steve Bryant and Dave Young caught Herrmann's scoring passes. Young's reception covered 31 yards while the other two were four-yard plays. ,; Herrmann finally sat out the final Six; minutes as Young gave Campbell some playing time. ; Campbell directed the final scoring drive, leading the Boilermakers 61 yards in 16 plays with Jimmy Smith Bcoring from the two. ' ! The victory evened Purdue's record a;t -2-2; Miami is 1-3. j Then Easley reversed his Rose Bowl thoughts. "This is not like winning the Rose Bowl," he said. "This is Columbus, not Pasadena. We've got seven games to go. Ohio State isn't our big game by a long shot." It was a bittersweet victory for Easley. He was ejected in the closing minutes for hitting Lance Parker, a Columbus photography shop owner, along the sidelines. "I'm very upset," said Easley. "I lost my composure. I feel bad for myself and my team. There was a lot of commotion. I felt I was jostled. But I can't make any excuse for my actions." , Terry Donahue said it was the best son also scored on a one-yard run in the third period and his 211 yards matched the IU single-game rushing record set by Courtney Snyder in 1975 against Purdue. Johnson, more than doubling his previous total of 101 yards, felt it was about time he broke loose. Past time, in fact. "We didn't say we were going to depend on the run, but it was something we had to do today," he said. "Last year by this time we were coming out running and we had three backs with a lot of yardage. So we had to get back on the track. The main thing was to come out running on them, not passing." Indiana, raising its record to 3-1 and completing a sweep of its nonconfer-ence slate that also included Kentucky and Colorado, was able to run against Duke (0-4) because it simply overpowered its visitors in the trenches. Even with the hard running of Johnson and Harkrader, however, IU struggled most of the way, due in part no doubt to the second-half absence of Clifford. The senior quarterback suffered a bruised right kneecap on a 15-yard touchdown run that gave IU a 17-0 lead with 7:43 left in the first half. Clifford didn't play the rest of the game, but he is expected to be ready for the homecoming game against Wisconsin on Saturday. "I could have played, but it was one of those things that if I tried to go on it, it might have swelled severely or started bleeding, and then you're looking at two or three weeks to get back," Clifford said. Clifford was replaced by senior Chad Huck, who immediately threw an interception that Duke turned into Big Ten DUKE 7 7 7-J1 INDIANA ............J 14 7 7-31 Indiana - FG Kellogg 24.

(AP) Greg Fashaw scored twice yesterday to help Florida A&M hold off a second-half rally by Howard for a 42-25 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference football victory. The Rattlers (2-2) built a four-touchdown lead in the first half, but Howard (1-2-1) closed the gap to 28-17 before Fashaw put the contest out of reach. Bruce, a loser for the first time in 15 regular-season games with the Buckeyes. "We may have tried to do too much offensively. We should have narrowed down to what we do best" Bruce said Schlichter suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter but should be ready to play next week at Northwestern. Sophomore quarterback Tom Ramsey led llth-ranked UCLA to two victory-clinching third-quarter scoring drives. UCLA rolled 56 yards in nine plays and 65 yards in 11 plays on the third-quarter drives in handing the Buckeyes their first loss in five games this season. Ramsey passed 11 yards to Jo Jo on a one-yard run by fullback Greg Boone. Then Huck engineered only IU's second sustained drive of the day, moving the Hoosiers 73 yards in 15 plays, with Johnson going the final yard through a huge hole in the right side of the line. Duke kept the heat on the Hoosiers until the final minutes, scoring on a Notre Dame's Carter gains 254 yards i( Irish edge past Michigan State Associated Press EAST LANSING, Mich. Junior Harry Oliver kicked four field goals and tailback Phil Carter ripped through a stubborn, outmanned Michigan State defense yesterday to score the go-ahead touchdown as seventh-ranked Notre Dame rallied to edge the fired-up Spartans 26-21. The cliffhanger left a Spartan Stadium crowd of 76,826 drained, Michigan State coach Muddy Waters proud of his inexperienced forces and Notre Dame coach Dan Devine relieved that the Irish escaped a slow start without an upset. "I don't have any alibis," Devine said of his team's narrow escape. "We played a tough football team. The Spartans' emotion almost gave first-year coach Waters a stunning upset, but he was not disheartened at the defeat. "I have mixed emotions," he said. "I feel proud of our kids. They played their hearts out. "We just had a terrible time stopping their running game. They blew us off the field with that." Michigan rally keeps Cal Minnesota romps past Northwestern Associated Press Sophmore tailback Lawrence Ricks and senior fullback Stanley Edwards each ran for two touchdowns and Michigan exploded for 21 points in the fourth quarter to defeat winless California 38-13 yesterday in Ann Arbor, Mich. Ricks, starting his second game, finished with 184 yards In 29 carries, while Edwards finished with 126 yards in 24 carries. Ricks scored on a six-yard burst in the first quarter and a two-yard run in the fourth quarter to give the Wolverines breathing room after California had narrowed the score to 17-13. Michigan led 17-3 at the half, but the Golden Bears, aided by a pass interference call, took the second-half kickoff and marched 80 yards in nine plays with senior quarterback Rich Campbell passing the final 25 ytrds to Townsell for the first touchdown. Tailback Freeman McNeil ran one yard for the other UCLA touchdown. Norm Johnson kicked a 27-yard field goal with 50 seconds left in the first quarter. Ohio State threatened only once in the first half, and the Bruins stopped that drive when strong safety Tom Sullivan intercepted a Schlichter pass in the UCLA end zone. The Buckeyes had driven from their 22 to the UCLA nine after Johnson's field goal. While UCLA's offense was controlling the ball in the third quarter, the Bruins' defense was shutting down Ohio State's usually potent attack. The Buckeyes punted all three times they Cedric Jones in the second quarter of one-yard run by Joel Blunk with 7:56 left to close the gap to 24-21. Duke was aided in its drive from the IU 44 by a personal foul penalty and a pass interference call against the winners. Indiana wasn't assured of victory until linebacker Martin Evans got his second pass interception, at the Duke 33, and returned it to the 29. That set up Harkrader's touchdown. Carter sparked an Irish ground attack that wore down the Spartans in a nip-and-tuck second half. The 5-foot-10, 193-pound sophomore piled up 254 yards, his third straight game over 100 ' yards, and one yard shy of the Notre Dame record held by Vagas Ferguson. He roared for 53 yards to set up reserve tailback Jim Stone's one-yard plunge late in the game after Michigan State came within a point of tying it. After trailing 9-6 at halftime, the Irish began a steady march in the second half, moving 51 yards in eight plays, with Carter rushing 12 yards for the leading score. Oliver then added his third field goal, but the underdog Spartans charged back, striking 69 yards in just four plays. Halfback Steve Smith, a Louisville Manual graduate, ran 34 yards and quarterback John Leister hit Ted Jones for 21. Fullback Tony Ellis ran 13 yards for the score. A two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving MSU down 16-15. On the next se split end Michael Buggs for the touchdown. Campbell, who led the nation in total offense at 320 yards a game before yesterday, completed 22 of 34 attempts for 249 yards, and had one interception. The victory evened Michigan's record at 2-2; California is 0-4. In other games: " Marion Barber blasted for three touchdowns and Garry White scored on runs of 78 and 25 yards to lead Minnesota (2-2) to a 49-21 victory over Northwestern (0-5) in Evanston, III. Although the Gophers lost four fumbles in the first half, they still managed a 42-0 lead at halftime before a crowd of only 17,747. The victory leaves Minnesota 1-1 in the Big Ten. Northwestern, f hich suf had the ball in the quarter and ran only 10 plays from scrimmage. Once the Buckeyes fell 17 points behind, Bruce had Schlichter go to the shotgun formation with little success. Before he was hurt, Schlichter either was sacked or threw incompletions on four straight plays. UCLA defensive tackle Mike Barbee sacked him at the Buckeyes 27, forcing Schlichter from the game. However, his five completions gave him 223 career completions, an Ohio State record. The old record was 220 by Don Unverferth from 1963 to 1965. , Ramsey, meanwhile, completed eight of 11 passes for 92 yards and one touchdown. He also carried the ball six times for 32 yards.

IU blew three good scoring opportunities in the first half, settling for a 24-yard field goal by Kevin Kellogg on one occasion, then losing the ball on the Duke 13 and 23 on fumble? by Clifford and Johnson. ries. Carter broke his big gainer to set up Stone's score. ? Michigan State came- back again. Leister hit Smith for a 42-yard scoring strike with 6:35 left to play but again a two-point conversion failed and Oliver added his final points as the clock ticked down. ' Notre Dame is undefeated in three games, all against Big Ten teams. Michigan State, playing its best game of the year, dropped to 1-3. In the first half, Michigan State rocked the heavily favored Irish, carrying the attack to Notre Dame with a wide-open offense and stubborn defense that kept 'the Irish out of the end zone. ': After a Notre Dame interception stopped one Michigan State drjve, MSU grabbed a 3-0 lead on a 29-yard field goal by Morten Andersen. , ', Later in the quarter, the Spartans went 60 yards in 10 plays to grab a. 9-0 lead with Smith scoring from the one.
