! 4E DETROIT FREE PRESSSUNDAY, SEPT. 30. 1979 CHIPPEWAS STAY UNBEATEN r.Iid-Amcrican football Central beats Miami in nailbiter, 19-18 Conference WLI PUOPW 53 18 63 20 By BRIAN BRAGG Fret Pros Sport Writer ,, MT. PLEASANT It was the nail-bitingest, gut-wrench- ingest, brow-moppingest football game witnessed in these parts for at least a couple of years, and when Saturday afternoon's uproar had finally subsided, the Central Michigan Lnippewas were still unbeaten, still atop the Mid-American Conference . . . and still as photogenic as ever. CMU unleashed an explosive scoring drive in the last nine minutes to overhaul Miami of Ohio, and then defensive back Carl Word Intercepted a pass in the end zone with just 21 seconds remaining to seal CMU's 19-18 verdict over the Redskins in a regionally televised heart-stopper. There really should have been no doubt about the outcome. After all, the Chippewas had never lost a televised football game. NOW THEY'RE 5-0 BEFORE the cameras because receiver Mike Ball caught seven passes for 1 19 yards; because tailback Reggie Mitchell gained 117 yards in 20 carries; because quarterback Gary Hogeboom hit 10 of 17 passes for 168 yards, and because freshman kicker Novo Bojovic has an accurate toe. But Central coach Herb Deromedi admitted his squad had to "ask ourselves who we are and just go out there and suck it up" to salvage the win over the rugged Redskins, who nearly upset nationally ranked Michigan State seven days earlier. Miami jumped off to a quick lead when a low snap on a CMU punt gave the visitors the football at Central's five less than 3f Mid-American Vord saves the day three minutes into the game. But Hogeboom teamed up with Ball to overcome the 7-0 impost Hogeboom hit eight of 13 passes in the first half, five of them to Ball, and the Chippewas took a 12-10 lead with a lightning, two-play scoring strike hitting paydirt with a Hogeboom-to-Ball pass that deflected off a Miami defender's hand with just five seconds remaining before intermission. But CMU unable to shake off a series of penalties and misplays found itself trailing by six, 18-12, in the fourth quarter, and Miami was in position for a 27-yard field goal that might have clinched matters for the Ohioans. Freshman kicker Mario Giese, however, missed the attempt with 9:36 to play, and Hogeboom didn't let the opportunity go to waste. BEGINNING ON HIS OWN 20-yard-line, the Grand Rapids senior directed a stunning series of option plays as the Chippewas stormed around and through the Redskins even overcoming a 15-yard penalty along the way to score the tying touchdown with just 3:53 showing on the clock.

Albion chews DePauw - ALBION Albion College, which hadn't won a football game all fall, turned on here Saturday for a Homecoming Day crowd of 3,000 fans by upsetting previously unbeaten DePauw University, 29-0. v ?: The Britons of coach Frank Joranko, scoring 19 points in the first 10 minutes, stunned the Tigers who went into the game with a 2-0 record. 1 -- Mike Doctor supplied the medicine for Albion when he booted the first of his two field goals a 46-yard shot with the game less than four minutes old. . Ji A safety followed, then junior quarterback Jon Vigl hit Dan Durrett with a 36-yard storing pass and Dextef Davis followed with a 77-yard touchdown run from scrimmage as Albion built its lead to 19-0. Doctor's second field goal and another Vlgi-to-Durrett pass in the second half finished off, the scoring for the afternoon. Hope riddles' IVafcareiie, 35-8 HOLLAND Quarterback Mark Spencer (Cored one touchdown here Saturday on a short dive and passed 26 yards to Paul Damon for a second TD in leading Hope College to a 5J-8 victory Over Olivet .Nazarene College pefore 3,230 fans. , - Ross Nykamp ran back a pass interception 2 yards for another score as Hope piled up 21 points in the third period to easily rack up its third victory of the season against a single loss. Hope had 1 18 yards rushing and 98 more through the air. Ferris State nips Alma, 13-12 ALMA (AP) A fourth-quarter field goal by Ferris State senior Dan Delamarter with 1:36 left in the game Saturday gave the Bulldogs a 13-12 victory over Alma. Delamarter also kicked a 34-yarder earlier in the fourth to help whittle at Alma's 12-7 lead. The non-conference game dropped Alma to a 2-2 season record and raised Ferris to a 2-2 record. Kalamazoo breezes, 24-7 KALAMAZOO Quarterback Tom Ran-ville tossed two touchdown passes and scored once himself Saturday as Kalamazoo rolled past Kenyon, Ohio, 24-7, to keep its record unblemished at 3-0. Ranville, a junior from Grand Blanc, completed 14 of 19 passes for 121 yards, Olivet can drive, 13-7 OLIVET Ray Gipson's three-yard first period smash, capping a 45-yard drive, and Bob Kubiak's 57-yard scoring pass to Jim Jackson, accounted for both touchdowns here Saturday as Olivet College defeated Mon- mouth (111.) College, 13-7, for Its third victory of the season. Olivet led at halftime, 7-0. Michigan pulls it out in spite of kick team U-M, from Page 1E blocked by Ron Hill. That gave the Golden Bears the ball on U-M's 31-yard line. On third down, Rich Campbell hit Don Sprague with a 13-yard pass and on the next play he found John Tug-gle wide open In the flat after coming out of the backfield for a 17-yard touchdown. THE WOLVERINES appeared to score when Wan-gler lofted a perfect 40-yard pass to Ralph Clayton. But it was ruled that Clayton stepped out of bounds around the Cal 23-yard line. "The man (Clayton) was knocked out of bounds, he said so himself," Schembech-ler said. That's not the way the of fi-clals saw it and after a 20-yard pass to fullback Lawrence Reld, U-M had to settle for a 37-yard field goal attempt by freshman All Haji-Shelkh. The kick was wide. A 36-yard punt return by freshman Anthony Carter and a 15-yard face-mask penalty gave U-M the ball on Cal's 43. After two of Wangler's passes were missed, Hajl-Sheikh tried and missed a 45-yard field goal late in the first quarter. Virgil got off a terrible 26-yard punt following U-M's next possession and a 21-yard pass from Rich Campbell to Matt Bouza set up a 47-yard field goal by Mick Luckhurt for a 10-0 California lead. A 25-yard pass play from Wangler to tight end Doug Marsh got the Wolverines into Cal territory late in the second quarter, but that drive died when Haji-Shiekh missed only a 30-yard field goal attempt. IN THE FIRST half U-M had the ball for 19 minutes and 20 seconds to only 10 minutes and 40 seconds for California. But California had the 10 points and U-M had the problems. But all it took was the opening kickoff of the second half and the entire complexion of the game changed. Terry Wiley took the kickoff for Cal and was belted by Paul Glrgash. Wiley coughed up the ball and Mike Harden fell on it on the California nine-yard line. Two plays later Stanley Edwards scored from three yards out. The U-M defense took over from there, stopping Cal on three plays. After a 31-yard punt, U-M took over on Cal's 40 and marched to the Cal 24 to set up a you-know-what. The victory was a big one, going into next week's showdown with Michigan State. "Any team that makes as many mistakes as we do is not a great football team," Schembechler said. "But we have a lot of character. We did not quit today. This game will make us a much better team in the weeks to come."

Bojovic a freshman from Hamtramck High who has given Deromedi a lesson in Polish pronunciation this autumn, split the uprights for the deciding point. But it wasn't over yet Just when it appeared Miami had been stopped for the final time, at the Skins' own 35 with less than a minute left, the visitors pulled off a fantastic 48-yard pass play off an end-around reverse, with receiver Keith Dummitt going out of bounds at CMU's 16-yard line. , : ON THE ENSUING PLAY, however! quarterback Chuck Hauck's pass into the corner of the end zone was picked off by Word, who leaped high in the air to make the grab. "It was beautiful, man," exclaimed the senior from Flint "I still can feel it I was1 totally surprised when I saw the ball coming at me on first down." Western bows to Bowling Green, 15-3 KALAMAZOO John Spengler kicked three field goals Saturday to lead Bowling Green to a 1 5-3 victory over Western Michigan to keep their Mid-American Conference championship hopes alive with a 2-1 mark. Spengler's boots covered 42, 45 and 46 yards to hand the Broncos their third setback in four games and second in three MAC contests. Kevin Folkes, a Detroit Osborn product, topped the Falcons with 61 yards on 21 rushes.

(AP) Ball State turned two Southeast Louisiana fumbles into scores, including the winning touchdown by quarterback Dave Wilson, en route to a 17-7 victory Saturday. (?3;V--4, 4s'js uM'ikM UPI Photo Michigan Stats linebacker Dan Bass (top) and Notre play in the first quarter Saturday. The Spartans won this Dame's John Scully dive for an Irish fumble on a running one Bass recovered the ball. LETS SAY IT WAS NO CONTEST Irish pop MSU's bubble, 27-3 MSU, from Page 1E yard line, but Rogers, upset at the ease with which the Irish moved most of the afternoon, noted: "I don't know if they (the defense) played at all . . . our field position wasn't real good, but if you can't stop 'em, you're going to have bad field position from now till doomsday." AND HE FOUND as much fault with his offense as with his e'efense. "Any time you leave your defensive team on the field as Spartans' top two quarterbacks hurt PUSCAS, from Page 1E son's early weeks and controlling the ball on MSU. ROGERS SEEMED baffled by that. "I would have thought we were better than we showed," he said. And he could see more dark moments ahead: "Certainly there are no lesser teams than Notre Dame ahead of us on our schedule, so we're going to have to gear up better." He wasn't sure how he could manage that, because even a healthy Spartan squad had been scrambling to save itself in the season's first three weeks. . ."There are a lot of good teams in the Big Ten but right now we're not one of them." Notre Dame coach Dan Devine seemed every bit as delighted with his victory over Michigan State as he was three weeks ago with a 12-10 upset of Michigan in Ann Arbor. "Knute Rockne used to say a team can play only a couple emotional games a season," said Devine, "but we have to play them every week. There was Michigan, the setback at Purdue last week, and now this, and next Georgia Tech. long as we've had to leave them on, it's almost impossible to move the ball. We didn't have it (the ball) much and when we did we didn't do much with it." Notre Dame, now 2-1 for the season, went up 7-0 late in the first period on a 14-yard pass from Rusty Lisch to Tony Hunter and padded that with 49 and 36 yard field goals by Chuck Male in second period. Michigan State's only points came on a 53-yard Morten Andersen field goal on the final play of the first half, the longest of his career for Morten, who sat out last Saturday's 24-21 win over Miami of Ohio with a back injury. "I THOUGHT WE were fortunate to come into the locker-room at halftime, down by just 10 points. I thought we had a chance if we showed something in the second half ..." Rogers said, allowing his voice to trail off. "We just out-physicalled them today," said Notre Dame coach Dan Devine, standing before a scrawled message on a lockerroom blackboard, which proclaimed "A real old fashioned tail kicking." "Our defensive line played an outstanding game. We controlled the line of scrimmage and that definitely was the big difference ... I hope none of their players are seriously injured." In addition to Vaughn and Clark, the Spartans lost defensive tackles Tanya Webb (knee) and Pat Mitten (back). Rogers said the status of all four will not be known until Sunday or Monday at the earliest. And there might have been a sound of urgency in his voice when he said it. "We're facing no lesser opponents from here on in," he said. And he didn't have to tick them off. . .Michigan, Purdue, Ohio State. Shippensburg has field day ANN ARBOR (AP) Shippensburg spoiled Slippery Rock's fairy tale football game by dumping The Rock, 45-14, before 61,143 fans in Michigan Stadium Saturday afternoon. Steve Moskowitz, a 6-foot-l, 215-pound Shippensburg freshman fullback, scored on runs of 75 and 63 yards the first two times he touched the ball in the first quarter and halfback Eric Payne scored on runs of six and 25 yards to pace the rout. Slippery Rock quarterback Chuck Sirko passed 19 yards to Rick Porter and eight yards to Jeff Meadows both late in the fourth quarter for The Rock's only touchdowns. "Our kids played well," Shippensburg coach Vito Ragazzo said. "The game was emotional and we hoped the kids would stay cool and they did." The Pennsylvania Conference game was played on neutral turf in Michigan Stadium at the invitation of Michigan athletic director Don Canham, who saw it as a way of filling the 101,701-seat stadium with cash customers while Michigan's team was on the road. SLIPPERY ROCK, because of its name, long has been a favorite with Michigan football fans, who await The Rock's score over the public address system each autumn Saturday afternoon. Some 12,000 high school band members also were on hand. Slippery Rock coach Bob Di Spirito said the game was a great thrill for his players, despite the one-sided defeat. "We felt our pass patterns were open but our quarterbacks were throwing knuckle balls," Di Spirito said. Porter acknowledged that most of the Rock players had trouble settling down. "I was nervous all last night," Porter said, "but after the first hit, it was just like a normal game for me. I think maybe some of the guys stayed In a fantasy too long." MOSKOWITZ, WHO rushed for 146 yards in just six carries, said his two touchdown runs were the longest of his career. "My longest in high shool was only about 25 yards," the husky fullback from Glenmore, Pa. said. "I was pretty excited when I broke free on that first one and knew I was going all the way."
