Louisville's players still seem to feel that their day will come. In fact, their day came right after Saturday's pasting. "We will continue at 8:30 Sunday morning. Scrimmage," said Schnellenberger. "The world is full of fainthearted people, and we'll find out who the fainthearted people are now. The football players will be there tomorrow morning. The rest will be students.

"As I told them, they're a dog football team," concluded Schnellenberger. "But they're my dog."

Michigan running back Jamie Morris. Morris, a senior, rushed for 182 yards and three touchdowns on just 18 carries as the Wolverines beat Wisconsin 49-0.

The Oregon defense. It bent a few times but didn't break as Washington spent most of the fourth period in the Ducks' end of the field. Oregon stopped two late Husky drives with interceptions at the one-yard line and in the end zone as it pulled off a major upset 29-22.

Baylor strong safety Robert Blackmon. Blackmon, a sophomore, ran back two interceptions for touchdowns to provide the Bears' margin of victory in a 30-18 defeat of Houston. In the first period he grabbed a pass by Andre Ware at the Cougar 10 and danced into the end zone. In the third period he intercepted another Ware pass at the Houston 10. This time he dragged Cougar Paul Smith into the end zone with him.


The Oregon State defense. USC piled up 582 yards against the Beavers en route to a 48-14 victory. Trojan quarterback Rodney Peete threw for 249 yards, and Steve Webster gained 132 on the ground. "The offense didn't play that well," said Oregon State coach Dave Kragthorpe, "but the defense gets the prize." In their four games—one of which they won—the Beavers have given up 184 points.

The Iowa offense. The Hawkeyes gained only 31 yards rushing in the first half against Michigan State—and the worst was yet to come. The Spartans, who received quite a chewing out from coach George Perles at halftime, stuffed Iowa backs for minus-47 yards rushing in the second half. That adds up to a net of minus-16 for the game. Michigan State, which trailed 14-7 at the half, won 19-14.
