Cornell, which has won more Ivy League games(28) in the past six years than any other team,finished 4-3 last year after the startingfullback, tailback, and three offensive linemenwent down with injuries.

This year, the fullback and the tailbackreturn. The injured linemen graduated, but theyleave behind a line that has already workedtogether for a year.

The defense, which allowed the least points inthe Ivy League last year (124) is hurting,especially on the line, but is serivceable.

The tailback is Scott Oliaro, who wassecond-team All-Ivy as a sophomore before missingnine games last year due to injury. Two years ago,Oliaro was the team's second leading rusher (149for 744 yards), top receiver (25 for 347 yards),leading scorer (11 TDs) and runner-up in returningkickoffs (16 for 294 yards).

The fullback is Peter Case, a devastatingblocker who will open holes Dean Archie C. EppsIII could run through.

With a year of rehabilitation, Oliaro isprepped to handle the immense load that will fallon him. As Oliaro goes, so will the Big Red.

Senior Bill Lazor will return for his secondyear as the starting quarterback. Lazor, who setschool records last year for most completions in agame (31), and most 300-yard passing games in acareer (2) while completing 129 of 217 passes for1461 yards.
