OFFENSE: Michigan State senior tailback Lorenzo White gained 185 yards on 34 carries and scored two TDs in the Spartans' 17-11 upset of Michigan. White is now the Big Ten's second alltime leading rusher, with 3,651 yards.

DEFENSE: Spartan strong safety John Miller was Michigan's favorite receiver, making four of State's seven interceptions, a school record in a Big Ten game, against the Wolverines. Miller, a junior, had 29 yards in runbacks and made five tackles.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Wilson Hoyle, a walk-on sophomore kicker at Wake Forest, booted a school-record five field goals as the Deacons beat North Carolina 22-14. Hoyle also has a school-record 10 field goals this year, and Wake is 5-0 for the first time since 1944.
