Wolverines Stun Buckeyes 'Perfect' Season Again

NEW YORK -- Michigan ended Ohio State's perfect season and national championship hopes for the second straight year. Lou Holtz ended his home career at Notre Dame with a flourish, and Yale coach Carm Cozza lost his last game against Harvard.


Backup quarterback Brian Griese led a second-half comeback that gave No. 21 Michigan a 13-9 victory over No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday. The Wolverines also upset an undefeated Buckeyes' team last year, 31-23.


At South Bend, Holtz won his 100th game as Notre Dame coach with a 62-0 rout of Rutgers. It was the last game at Notre Dame Stadium for Holtz. Holtz's replacement was announced Sunday as defensive coordinator Bob Davie.


Ron Powlus threw for four touchdowns, setting a school record with 42 career TD passes and tying the single-game record, and the No. 10 Irish (8-2) scored their most points ever during Holtz's 11-year tenure.


In his storied 32-year career, Yale's Cozza always took losing hard.


It was especially difficult after his 303rd and final game as Yale coach Saturday, a 26-21 loss to Harvard in the 113th edition of The Game.


But Cozza said he took solace in his Elis nearly wiping out a 21-0 deficit in the second half, the end coming at 3:18 p.m., when Kris Barber's heave from the 48-yard line toward James Borden fell incomplete along the left sideline.


For a final few minutes, it brought back memories of 1968, when Harvard scored 16 points in the final 42 seconds for a 29-29 tie.


But Yale (2-8, 1-6) lost its sixth in a row, finishing with the second-worst record in Cozza's tenure, to 1-9 in 1983. Cozza finished with a 179-119-5 record, 16-15-1 against Harvard. (AP, LAT)
