Today's Area Games

October 15, 1994


at No. 15 NORTH CAROLINA (4-1)

Site: Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill, N.C.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Radio: WBAL (1090 AM), WWRC (930 AM)

Series: North Carolina leads, 30-25-1.

Line: North Carolina by 15 1/2

Outlook: The quarterbacks will play an integral role. Jason Stanicek holds many North Carolina records and, if anything, he's more effective than he was in 1993, when he was a second-team Atlantic Coast Conference all-star behind Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward. Maryland's Scott Milanovich beat out Stanicek when the ACC media selected its preseason Player of the Year, but today will be his first start for the Terps in a month. North Carolina won last year, 59-42, in the highest-scoring game in its history, but the Maryland offense hasn't come close to resembling the unit that made the Tar Heels shudder.


at NAVY (0-5)

Site: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Series: Navy leads, 7-4.

Radio: WMAL (630 AM), WWLG (1360 AM), WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: The Midshipmen have their best chance to end 10-game losing streak against a winless Division 1-AA rival. Senior QB Jim Kubiak became the school's career leader in passing yardage (4,808) against Air Force last week and has passed for more than 200 yards in 13 of his past 16 games. But Kubiak also has thrown eight interceptions. The Midshipmen have allowed an average of 469.4 yards and turned the ball over 11 times, resulting in 10 TDs. All-time school rushing leader Erik Marsh has been held to 402 yards.



Site: Sea Gull Stadium, Salisbury.

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: The Sea Gulls, who won their first game last week, continue a rough schedule against Newport News, which leads the series, 3-1. Salisbury State's speed, fine special teams play and the steadily improving play of QB Marc Thomas are beginning to pay off. Thomas threw TD passes to three different receivers in last week's 35-2 victory over Chowan. Freshman Tony Hill also set a school record last week with a 98-yard kickoff return for a TD.



Site: Aggie Stadium, Greensboro, N.C.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Radio: WEAA (88.9 FM)

Outlook: The Bears came back to earth last week after their only victory with a 49-7 loss to South Carolina State -- the third time Morgan State has surrendered more than 40 points this year. Things won't get any easier against one of the MEAC's top teams. QB Masco Bolin (804 yards, eight TDs) and RBs Brian Rodman and David Perry (712 yards, eight TDs between them) lead a potent offense that figures to spell more trouble for the Bears, who are allowing 448 yards per game. Morgan State's offense has committed 20 turnovers and has managed only 12.5 points per game.



Site: Bowman-Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, N.C.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Bulldogs broke a four-game losing streak last week against Johnson C. Smith, as their offense came to life with a 30-point effort behind QB Darrell Foote. After absorbing three consecutive shutouts, Bowie State has scored 44 points in its past two games. The normally dependable defense has struggled of late, although S Chris Banks (40 tackles, six interceptions) continues to enjoy an all-conference-type season. The Bulldogs must contain RB Richard Huntley, who has six TDs and is averaging 119 yards rushing.



Site: Bobcat Stadium, Frostburg.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Radio: WFRB (560 AM)

Outlook: The Bobcats are coming off a tough, 24-21 victory at Trenton State, on a 19-yard field goal by Brian Goodger. Frostburg State is ranked eighth in Division III and has won 15 of its past 17 games dating to last season. Behind QB Gilbert Telleria, SE Ariel Bell and RBs Shawn Freeman and Kermit Nored, the Bobcats are averaging 31 points and 423 yards per game.



Site: Bair Stadium, Westminster.

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Green Terror has put together a three-game winning streak, and it has the hottest QB in the Centennial Conference in junior Brian Van Deusen. In his past three games, Van Deusen has completed 74 of 112 passes (66.1 percent) for 1,096 yards and five TDs, along with just one interception. Dickinson, the perennial class of the conference, features an offense led by TB Bill Hughes -- who is third in Division III with a 165.8-yard rushing average -- and a defense that has allowed just 7.4 points a game.
