6S The Des Moines Register Monday, October 28, 1991 College Football Night before game painful for ISU player backer when I was a junior in high school," Goodwin said. "My senior year, I only played tight end." But that position was filled when he joined the Cyclones as a freshman walk-on in 1988. "When I came here, I talked to the coaches about the possibility of playing outside linebacker," Goodwin said. "I moved to inside linebacker this year." He was an instant success and was rewarded with a scholarship after his freshman season. "Defense is a lot more fun than playing offense," he said. "It's not as glamorous as offense, but I've never been one to look for that." But it is a lot more glamorous than jumping into bed and landing on a table. tion when he was a walk-on following a better-than-average career as a tight end at Ames High School. He was good, but the recruiters thought it would be a risk to offer an expense-free education. But that was because they saw him only as a tight end. It is a different story when he is the seeker instead of the seekee. In this respect, Goodwin has proven his Division I worthiness. The Iowa State junior alternates with Dan Milner at a position that has become the strength of a tough defense. Goodwin has 58 tackles, fifth-best on the team despite sharing a position. Not bad for a guy who barely played defense in high school. "The only defense I played was when I played junior varsity line beside my bed," Goodwin said, finally able to crack a smile about the incident. "I got 20 stitches in my head." Goodwin was taken to the hospital by a trainer, then returned to the motel at roughly 3:30 a.m. "I went back to bed, but I didn't get much sleep because my head was hurting and because my roommate (Marcus Allen) was snoring," Goodwin said. "I'd say I finally got to sleep about 4:30." The coaching staff did not know of Goodwin's adventurous night until the team gathered for breakfast Saturday. "The coaches laughed at me when they heard what I did," Goodwin said. "Then they asked me if I could play, and I said I could." The coaches asked the same ques stitches on the bridge of his nose. Iowa State's ritual on the night before a game is not any different than most other Division 1 teams. Whether on the road or at home, the team stays in a motel on Friday nights. They do it at home so the players can escape distractions on campus the night before the game. They do it on the road because there is no alternative. The last thing expected is injury. Goodwin said he woke up at 1 :30 a.m. Saturday to go to the bathroom, then experienced what at the time was no laughing matter. "It was late and I was tired," Goodwin recalled. "The bed looked real good, and I thought I'd leap into it." But he missed. "I banged my head on a table Cyclones linebacker Goodwin makes eight tackles after getting 20 stitches in his head after an unusual accident in a motel room. ' By RANDY PETERSON Register Staff Writer , Ames, la. Iowa State inside-linebacker Malcolm Goodwin had eight tackles in Saturday's 6-6 tie against Oklahoma State and didn't have as much as a bruise to show for it.

Whenwhere: 1:30 p.m., Briggs Stadium, Springfield, Mo. Northern Iowa update: "I think the fun is starting," Northern Iowa Coach Terry Allen said Sunday. "This is what it's all about." Northern Iowa beat Western Ken- tuirtjr, ta-tdi, ill j-uvvimg viiccii, ivy., on Saturday for its fourth straight victory. Allen said the most satisfying aspect of the string of victories could be that three of them were on the road. "There were totally different environments a dome, wind and rain, grass in each and every one," Allen said. "We have rallied pretty well about facing adversity. I don't think we're going to get flustered. "Our defense is very good, but we don't have to live and die off our defense. We don't have to live and die off the pass because we can rush the fnntl.r.11 ' rf,. 1 I 1 -J 1 . er in college football. "It's very important to have all those attributes if you want to go on the road and win." Northern Iowa and Southwest Missouri State shared the Gateway Conference championship last year. The Panthers beat the Bears, 20-17, in front of a sellout crowd of 16,324 attheUNI-Dome. Southwest Missouri State Coach Jesse Branch told the Springfield News-Leader after the game that the crowd noise gave Northern Iowa an unfair advantage. "You can play a football game anywhere and more times than not the best team's going to win," Allen said. Southwest Missouri State added 10,000 seats at Briggs Stadium this season. Allen said he expects noise from all 17,000 seats Saturday. "I'm sure they're awfully excited about the opportunity to play Northern Iowa in Springfield," Allen said. Northern Iowa injury update: Allen said his players sustained no major injuries Saturday. Southwest Missouri State update: The Bears, ranked No. 18 in NCAA Division I-AA, have won three of their last four games, including a 37-20 victory Saturday at Arkansas State. Southwest Missouri State had a 9-3 record and qualified for the Division I-AA playoffs last year. Fullback Jonah White's 494 yards and nine touchdowns lead the Bears. Quarterback Paul Carney has completed 52 percent of his passes for 620 yards and four touchdowns. The leading receiver is running back Anthony Pegues, who has caught 19 passes for 294 and two touchdowns. DanMcCool Diego, with the third -place team playing there after next season. That arrangement also could have its drawbacks this season. The Cotton Bowl reportedly was disappointed because it had Iowa high on its list. The Cotton Bowl pays more than $3 million per team; the Holiday Bowl pays less than $2 million. No. 1 team hurting Offensive tackle Kevin Mancini is out. Quarterback Casey Weldon and fullback Edgar Bennett probably are out. Louisiana State, which Saturday night lost to Florida State, 27-16, exacted a high toll from the top-ranked Seminoles. By Sunday afternoon, Florida State's injured list totaled 17. Mancini will miss at least two weeks. Five other offensive starters are questionable. Weldon hurt ligaments in his left knee. Florida State Coach Bobby Bow-den said he would wait until later this week to decide on a starting quarterback for a game Saturday against Louisville. Bennett sustained a separated shoulder. i APT0P25 (First-place votes, record, points, previous ranking) 1. Florida St. (53) (8-0) 1,492 1 2. Miami (3) (7-0) 1,415 2 3 Washington (4) (7-0) 1,412 3 4.

Television: None Iowa State update: It probably is little consolation, but former Iowa State coach Johnny Majors has come to the defense of the Cyclones' current coach. "I'm sure there aren't many coaches in college football who have gone through the month that Jim Walden has," Majors said as he watched the Cyclones and Oklahoma State play to a 6-6 tie Saturday. Majors, coach at Tennessee, had a rare Saturday off and was part of a halftime ceremony that honored his 1971 Cyclones that played in the Sun Bowl. During October, the Cyclones not only suffered an 0-3 record, but Walden saw his top two quarterbacks go down for the remainder of the season; the university officially ruled his top receiver, Steve Lester, ineligible for the season; and his offense go 12 consecutive quarters without a touchdown. The only points have come on four Ty Stewart field goals. Iowa State's record is 0-2-1 in the Big Eight Conference and 2-4-1 overall. This is the first time the Cyclones have played three league games without winning since 1984. "It's tough to play Division I football with your top two quarterbacks on the sidelines," Majors said. "It's hard to generate much of an offense when your top two guys can't play Quality Foes May Be Scarce IOWA (6-1, 3-1) Opponent Ohio State (6-1,3-1) WhenWhere: 2:35 p.m. CST, Saturday, Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio. Television: ABC. Iowa update: The Hawkeyes have obviously gotten into a routine. In three consecutive games, they've fallen behind in the first half and then rallied to win. The latest comeback came Saturday in a 31-21 victory over Purdue. The Boilermakers led at halftime, 15-7, but Iowa outscored them, 17-0, in the third quarter. Tailback Mike Saunders wound up with a career-high 151 yards rushing, including a 73-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter. Saunders also scored on a 26-yard run. Matt Rodgers completed 20 of 27 passes for 229 yards, but threw for no touchdowns for the first time in 10 games. The Hawkeyes' second-half defense was superb, just as it was in come-from-behind victories over Wisconsin and Illinois. Iowa limited Purdue to 57 yards of offense in the final 30 minutes and sacked the Boilermakers' quarterbacks eight times for 93 yards. Seven of those sacks came in the second half. Four of the sacks, for 53 yards, were by tackle Ron Geater. "All the players retained their poise after we fell behind," Coach Hayden Fry said. However, Rodgers said it's time for the Hawkeyes to quit falling behind early. "It takes this team a while to get going," he said, "but we're hurting ourselves." Iowa injury update: Defensive taokle Jeff Nelson's status is uncertain due to a hamstring injury. Ohio State update: The Buckeyes are one of two teams tied with Iowa for second place in the Big Ten. The other is Indiana, the Hawkeyes' opponent Nov. 9. The late Woody Hayes coached at Ohio State from 1951 through 1978, and made the "three yards and a cloud of dust" offense known to fans everywhere. Present coach John Cooper said he didn't plan it that way, but the Buckeyes have been ground-oriented this season. "I'm concerned about our lack of consistency in passing," Cooper said. In Saturday's 27-17 victory over Michigan State, they ran for 262 yards and passed for 135. Carlos Snow, who rushed for 169 yards and one touchdown against Michigan State and Butler By'not'e are the top two tailbacks. Scottie Graham and Jeff Cothran are the top two fullbacks.

But that is going to be the situation for the season's remaining games against Missouri, Kansas State, Nebraska and Colorado. A split would have seemed possible with a healthy Chris Pedersen or Bob Utter, and still might happen with Kevin Caldwell running the offense. But the Cyclones have to do something to awaken a dormant offense that accumulated 188 yards of offense against Oklahoma State and 154 a week earlier against Kansas. "We're just trying to put something together," Walden said. "We didn't get beat and we had some kids play hard. But we've got to block a little better." Iowa State injury update: For the first time in the past two games, nary a Cyclone suffered a season-ending injury. Utter was ruled out for the season after injuring his right shoulder against Oklahoma on Oct. 5, then after a Saturday off, Pedersen and defensive back Andrew Buggs suffered season-ending shoulder injuries Oct. 19 against Kansas. Missouri update: Missouri's records fell to 1-2-0 and 3-3-1 after Saturday's 63-6 loss to Nebraska. Missouri quarterback Phil Johnson, the Big Eight's total offense leader with 228 yard a game, had 15 completions in 29 attempts for 169 yards with an interception and no touchdowns. n , , Randy Peterson Notre Dame. The Fiesta Bowl also has been included, as will two at-large teams to fill out the eight-team alliance. With the Big Ten out of the picture, the two at-large teams will come from runners-up from those conferences in the consortium, and the Pac-10 and Western Athletic conferences. The leagues in the consortium want to expand the alliance to have guaranteed spots for teams that are at-large candidates but aren't selected. Likely candidates include the Hall of Fame Bowl, the Gator Bowl and the John Hancock Bowl. Last week, the Southwest Conference spoke of cutting a deal with the new Alamo Bowl in San Antonio if its runner-up doesn't make the consortium. That means a second-place Big Ten team, which could have a 10-1 record and be ranked in the top 10, might be forced to play a third-place finisher from another conference in the Florida Citrus Bowl.

And that could end up being bad news for the Big Ten, because the conference runner-up might find itself without a suitable opponent. According to bowl sources, the leagues in the new four-bowl consortium, which begins after next season, are having preliminary discussions about placing their second-place teams in an expanded bowl deal. If that happens, the Big Ten, which will send its runner-up to the Florida Citrus Bowl after next season, might see that team forced into playing a lower-ranked entry from another conference. In other words, the Florida Citrus Bowl and the Big Ten could be frozen out of an attractive matchup.
