If Northwestern has a secret edge over USC in Monday's Rose Bowl game, quarterback Steve Schnur thinks it might be the Wildcats' one-quarterback system as opposed to the Trojans' two-quarterback offense. Schnur knows all about two quarterbacks. He and Tim Hughes, a junior college transfer from Butte College in Oroville, Calif., shared duties last year. Before the 3-7-1 season was over, the student newspaper, the Daily Northwestern, referred to them as Beavis and Butt-head.

Obviously, last year's Rose Bowl run to glam-fan fame and sports-story-of-the-decade acclaim wasn't compelling enough for Northwestern. "It's funny," Wildcat senior receiver Brian Musso was saying this week. "You get done with last year and everyone's asking the question, 'Can you repeat the excitement of last year?' My answer was always, 'I don't think so.' But, lo and behold, we've found a way."

Northwestern's Darnell Autry is in the Wildcats' record books, thanks to some film review by school officials. Autry initially was credited with 81 rushing yards in the No. 8 Wildcats' 35-0 victory over Wisconsin last Saturday, appearing to end his streak of consecutive 100-yard games at seven.

Video games have come a long way since "Pong" bounced into arcades with its primitive blip-blop sound effects. Now they're a major cultural and musical force, capable of luring Top 40 artists, breaking new bands and luring A-list Hollywood composers for original scores. Even so, there hasn't been a consistent way for consumers to transfer these musical backdrops out of the games and into their music players. Until now.

Brian Gowins kicked a 32-yard field goal with four seconds left Saturday as Northwestern won another game in the final seconds, beating Purdue, 27-24, to clinch second place in the Big Ten. Northwestern (9-2 overall and 7-1 in the Big Ten) won four conference home games this season by a combined nine points. The No. 13 Wildcats, last season's Big Ten champions, are headed to their second straight bowl game--probably the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. on New Year's Day.

Northwestern defensive back Hudhaifa Ismaeli wasn't going to cheer up after the Wildcats' loss, no matter what comfort anyone offered. Asked how he felt, he replied, "The sun has fallen." Asked how he felt when the Wildcats took a 32-31 lead in the fourth quarter, he replied, "The sun has fallen." The assembled reporters wondered if Ismaeli had just uttered a profound statement. Seeing their bewildered expressions, he laughed.

The drought is finally over for No. 25 Northwestern. The Wildcats are for real. Northwestern, taking advantage of No. 7 Michigan's mistakes, rode the arm of Steve Schnur and the kicking of Sam Valenzisi to 19-13 victory Saturday, the Wildcats' first triumph over the Wolverines in 30 years and first at Ann Arbor since 1959. "This win is huge for our program," said Schnur, who completed 11 of 23 passes for 126 yards and one touchdown. "We believe in ourselves more every win we get.

Steve Schnur, a late first-quarter replacement, passed for two touchdowns and Dennis Lundy ran for three as Northwestern tied No. 24 Stanford, 41-41, leaving the Cardinal without a season-opening victory in the last eight years. Steve Stenstrom, who ran for two touchdowns and passed for one, marched Stanford into scoring position in the final seconds, but Eric Abrams missed a 23-yard field-goal attempt with three seconds to play.

The Wisconsin Badgers earned a place in football's infamous follies on Saturday. In a bizarre ending reminiscent of a game 18 years when the New York Giants blew a victory on Joe Pisarcik's mishandled handoff to Larry Csonka, No. 14 Northwestern pulled out a stunning 34-30 victory over Wisconsin.

When is a 45-17 victory unsatisfying? When you're the No. 2 team in the nation and looking to move up. Penn State, 10-0 overall and 7-0 in the Big Ten, extended the nation's longest winning streak to 15 with a 45-17 victory over Northwestern on Saturday. But the Rose Bowl-bound Nittany Lions, missing four injured defensive starters, looked vulnerable in giving up 475 yards and lost another player. "It's kind of late in the year to not be able to stop guys," linebacker Willie Smith said.
