to COLLEGE FOOTDALL h 1 S-5 r4 r-J ; V',K Ohio State's Bob Murphy knocks pass away from Michigan receiver Anthony Carter. ' Michigan upsets Ohio St. 9-3; plays Washington in Rose Bowl By DON GREENBE$G Columbus, Ohio- Okay, so Michigan upset Ohio State 9-3 Saturday to win a berth in the Rose Bowl against Washington. But isn't that like the kiss of death, considering Big 10 teams have lost lOof the last 11 in Pasadena? . . "Forget that stuff," said Michigan middle guard Mike Tgovac, who at 6-2, 235 can tell people that "We're going to go out (to California) later this year. It s my tnira Mlchlstn Ohio Sttt lilt!

And I'm going to make sure everyone else on this team does the same." It would be tough to argue with Trgovac or any of his defensive buddies, whom some Michigan mathematical whiz figured haven't allowed a touchdown The Buckeyes, 9-2 and headed for the Fiesta Bowl against Penn State on Dec. 28, didn't seem in jeopardy of disrupting the Wolverines streak. They thoroughly bored the record Ohio Stadium crowd of 88,827 not to mention a regional TV audience in the first half with their Woody Hayes pound, pound, pound, punt offense. Then in the second half, when the strategy remained the same, the fans turned on their Bucks and filled their ears with boos. RUSHINO Michigan, WpoHolk, 31-141, Ricks, 14-49, Edwards, 13-18.

Mohican rnnrh Ro Sehembechler. who makes Tommy Newsome look like Rodney Dangerfield, was asked if he expected such a bland offensive show from Ohio State, which features alleged hotshot quarterback Art Schlichter. "No, no, I'm not going to get into that," Bo said. "That's none of my business." He preferred to heap praise on his team, which started out like a dumptruck this season by escaping from lowly Northwestern and losing to Notre Dame and South-Carolina before ripping off seven straight before Saturday. "I am so pleased because this Michigan team has gone far beyond what I expected," Bo said. To sophomore wide receiver Anthony Carter,' who's so fast it's reported that he can watch "60 Minutes" in half an hour, the trip to Pasadena comes asa mini-surprise. "The coaches always told me I'd have a part in bringing Michigan to the Rose Bowl, but I guess I had kinda a hard time beliving them," he said. Carter, perhaps more than any other Wolverine, is the guy responsible. He caught four passes for 47 yards including the biggie, a 13-yard touchdown with 5:00 left in the third quarter that wound up putting the boot to the Buckeyes. "I admit that I got sorta nervous late when we were up 9-3 and Ohio State was closing in," Carter said. "With that Schlichter at quarterback, you never know." Trgovac said he and the rest of the defense were all fired up over some inflamatory material they had seen recently. "We read all that stuff in the papers this week about them saying we had an 'average' defense and a so-so offensive line, Trgovac said. "They probably didn't think we d read it, but we did, and we didn't like it at all. They didn't have any respect for us. Maybe they will now."

EelbErasCia mi Associated Press Lincoln, Neb. Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne may have sensed what was coming. "When we went ahead 17-14, I took out offense aside and told them to get ready to score again. Oklahoma has the potential to score quickly," Osborne said Saturday. Osborne's fourth-ranked Cornhuskers had gone in front 17-14 when quarterback Jeff Quinn plunged across from less than a yard out with 3:16 left to play. When the ensu- u - ing kiCkOff Went Nebraska 10 i i - 1 through the end zone, Oklahoma was 80 yards away with a stiff breeze in its face. But Osborne's words were prophetic when the ninth-ranked Sooners stormed the length of the field, capped by freshman Buster Rhymes' 1-yard run with 56 seconds remaining that lifted them to a dramatic 21-17 triumph. Rhvmes set ud the touchdown with a 43 yard gallop to the Nebraska 14 five plays earlier. It was Oklahoma's ninth victory in the last 10 meetings with Nebraska in one of college football's great rivalries and gave the Sooners at least a tie for their eighth consecutive Big Eight championship with a 6-0 record. However, they are 8-2 overall to 9 2 for Nebraska, which finished its regular season Saturday. THE SOONERS must defeat Oklahoma State next week to represent the Big Eight against Florida State in the Orange Bowl. That would send Nebraska to the Sun Bowl against Mississippi State. "I'll tell you what this may be the best one yet," said Oklahoma Coach Barry Switzer. "We don't have any jinx on Nebraska. I've never believed in that. But we came up here, everyone said we were the underdogs, and we just made so many big plays. "This is one of the great, great victories. Oh, boy, this is sweet. We played great defense the entire ballgame. We almost killed ourselves in the third quarter with two fumbles, but overall we kept the mistakes to a minimum." The last-minute touchdown brought Oklahoma from behind for the second time in the game. The Sooners earlier overcame an 89-yard touchdown dash by Nebraska's Jarvis Redwine and erased a 100 deficit on 3-yard scoring runs by J.C. Watts and Chet Winters late in the second period. Oklahoma moved crisply down the field for its winning score, covering the 80 yards in eight plays that used up two minutes and 20 seconds. "WE HAD THREE minutes left," Switzer said. "I thought we could score. Rhymes has played pretty good as a rookie. He has great speed. We got the ball to the right guy and he can fly." A 2-yard run by Rhymes.'a personal foul against Nebraska and a fumble by Stanley Wilson, which tackle Louis Oubre recovered for a 6 yard gain, put the ball on the Oklahoma 43. RHYMES THEN TOOK a pitchout from Watts, circled right end and made it to the Cornhusker 14 before Sammy Sims bumped him out of bounds. P3otre Dame struggles to 24-10 victory over Air Force Associated Press South Bend, Ind. Phil Carter's two-yard -touchdown run capped a self-propelled 76-yard, tie-breaking drive in the third quarter Saturday to lead second-ranked and Sugar Bowl-bound Notre Dame to a 24-10 victory over Air Force. Carter gained 71 of the 76 yards in 13 carries to finally put the Irish ahead in what had been a defensive struggle until the smaller Air Force team simply tired out. . ii ctnna'o BPvn-vird touchdown run m tne lilt WfcVSV w- - j closing seconds of the third quarter gave the unde- nrtna.HoA Tn'ch hrpathitlP room. Notre Dame, which had not allowed a touchdown in a school-record 23 quarters, finally yielded in the fourth quarter after Johnny Jackson intercepted a Blair Kiel pass and returned 26 yards to the Irish 21. A pass interference call against Notre Dames John Krimm gave the Falcons the ball on the one-yard line from where Charlie Heath punched it over for a touchdown with 7:04 left in the game.

UlllU UlCUUftH, WW". v ...vv..., , t Until Carter, who finished with 181 yards in 29 carries, put on his one-man show in the third quarter, the Irish had been hard pressed. Carter earned five times before John Sweeney broke the spell with a five-yard run. Carter then carried the final eight times to put the Irish ahead. The next time Notre Dame gained possession the Irish drove 30 yards in seven plays with Stone carrying six times for 21 yards and his first touchdown. . The Falcons recovered a Carter fumble on the Notre Dame 39-yard line midway in the first quarter, but were unable to move.
