Southern California 30, Stanford 7 LOS ANGELES - Fallback Kennedy Pola threw a 65-yard touchdown pass to Timmie Ware on Southern California's first offensive play, starting the Trojans' rout of Stanford. West CBS plans to show UA-UCLA TUCSON Arizona's Pac-10 football game next Saturday against UCLA will be televised from Arizona Stadium, CBS officials announced Saturday, marking the Wildcats' first regular-season appearance on national TV. The kickoff time will be announced Monday, said Butch Henry, UA assistant athletic director for media relations. Henry said kickoff is expected to be between 10 and 10:30 a.m. Arizona appeared on national television in the 1968 Sun Bowl,' when it lost to Auburn, and in the 1979 Fiesta Bowl, when it lost to Pittsburgh. Last season, unranked Arizona had a 24-21 lead against eighth-ranked UCLA before the Bruins kicked a field goal with two seconds left, salvaging a 24-24 tie at the Rose Bowl. In 1980, the Bruins came to Tucson ranked second and were upset, 23-17, by the unranked Wildcats. Ware was alone at the Stanford 30 when he caught the pass from Pola. Frank Jordan missed the conversion kick, but the Trojans got a two-point conversion after their next touchdown. USC quarterback Sean Salisbury completed 12 of 16 passes for 207 yards and one touchdown. The Trojans had a 21-0 halftime lead. The win evened USC's record at 4-4-1, 4-1 in conference play. Stanford dropped to 1-8, 1-5 in league play. Washington St. 27, Oregon St. 9 CORVALLIS, Ore. - Sopho more Kerry Porter ran for 131 yards and two touchdowns, powering Washington State's win over Oregon State. Porter has gained more than 100 yards in four successive games. Washington State (5-4, 3-3) held a 13-9 lead before turning the game into a rout by scoring two touchdowns in the final 6:44. The Cougars drove 80 yards in 11 plays for a touchdown, taking a 20-9 lead. Porter had runs of 18 and 14 yards in the drive, which ended with quarterback Ricky Turner scoring on a 3-yard run. Porter scored on an 8-yard run with 2:44 remaining. Washington State took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. Turner connected with Kitrick Taylor on a 56-yard pass play, setting up the first touchdown, which came on Porter's 1-yard run on fourth down. Oregon State's lone touchdown was the game's most spectacular play. Quarterback Ladd McKittrick lofted a pass to Reggie Bynum at midfield, and Bynum outraced three tacklers on a 92-yard scoring play." " Oregon State, which ended its 30-game winless streak in the Pac- 10 against Stanford last weekeTjf , dropped to 2-7, 1-5 in the conference. " . Air Force 45, Hawaii 10 " AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Coo Fullback John Kershner and halfback Jody Simmons 'each ran for two touchdowns, "powering "ArV Force's Western Athletic Confetf-ence rout of Hawaii.

On the next play from scrimmage, Air Force safety Greg Zolnin-ger intercepted a pass and returned it 39 yards to the Hawaii ' 6. Kershner scored two plays later, giving the Falcons a 14-3 lead barely four minutes into the game. Utah State 22, San Jose State 1 LOGAN, Utah - Tailback Erjic Adams scored on a 3-yard run wi& 3:13 remaining, lifting Utah State (4-5) past San Jose State (5-3). ; Utah State, trailing by one pou), used a fake punt with four minutes remaining. On a fourth-and-8 sitUHr tion from the Utah State 22, pun.tej Russell Griffith ran 18 yards fof.a first down. Gal improvised lucky break When punter made a run for it ByBobCohn pepublic Staff BERKELEY, Calif. As California punter Tom . Candsey watched the play unfold, it became clear that things were not working. Never mind what it said on the blackboard; these were not X's and O's swirling around him. . i So Gandsey did the necessary. He ran and didn't !i?top until he had sprinted out of bounds for 8 yards, 3 Vards more than was needed for a first down! Cal now iiad a fresh set of downs and a fresh outlook on life. iShortly thereafter, Randy Pratt kicked the field goal that beat Arizona State, 26-24, Saturday at Memorial Stadium. It was fourth and 5 on the ASU 47, the Sun Devils Reading, 24-23. Cal called a timeout with 3:34 left to set !up the fake punt that ostensibly called for Gandsey to pass to either Andy Bark or Dave Pillsbury. jij "They were supposed to go downfield 30 yards, and I was supposed to throw it as high as I could," said pandsey, who practiced the play all week. But Bark and Pillsbury both were covered. The Sun ,t).evils, Gandsey said, had seen it coming. . iOne- guy saw Andy and said, 'Hey, it's a fake,' " Gandsey said. "The whole team knew." Gandsey, a junior-college transfer running a fake for the first time in big-time play, took the snap and, realizing his predicament, took flight to the left side of the field, faking as if to pass. ASU defensive end Frank Rudolph gave chase, but Gandsey eluded him and made it to the sidelines for the first down. From the ASU 39, Cal was in position to move in for the winning field goal, which the Bears did efficiently. Then the burden was on Pratt's slight shoulders. Pratt, a 5-foot-8, 150-pound senior, already had kicked three field goals, setting a single-season record at Cal. But all that would have been' rendered meaningless had he blown the. 38-yarder with 48 seconds remaining. , - ; Missing, however, never occurred to him. "A kicker, at heart, eats up any situation like that," he said. "That's the reason I'm a kicker to get an opportunity like that." Why he had an opportunity like that could not be attributed only to the prior work of Gandsey. All day, the big boys the ones who pass and catch and play defense kept the Golden Bears in a position to beat the Sun Devils. Cal coach Joe Kapp credited the win to a strong case of senioritis. "The seniors stood up and wanted to win the football game," Kapp said. "It was their last game in Memorial Stadium." There was, however, more than that.' As always, there was Cal linebacker Ron Rivera. He led a defense that held ASU to 136 yards in the second half, compared with 251 in the first, and caused six turnovers. Blitz-conscious Cal also used the big play for its touchdowns, passes of 73 and 57 yards from quarterback Gale Gilbert to wide receiver Ranee McDougald. A 46-yard strike from Gilbert to Bark eventually led to a field goal. The first Gilbert-to-McDougald touchdown came on the game's third play. Gilbert, who completed 19 of 39 passes for 300 yards and the two touchdowns, said he was looking for a shorter route to the tight end but noticed McDougald was alone with ASU safety David Fulcher. VRance just blew by him," Gilbert said. "V 'We' put in "a few extra things this week," said McDougald, who caught five passes for 158 yards. "We knew they were going to blitz so we tried to get more quick passes. The quick passes then set up the long passes."

Television replays, although not 100 percent conclusive, seemed to support Rogers' contention. Crawford and Osiecki both said they could not tell whether Nicker-son made a clean grab. "I didn't have a good view of it," Osiecki said, "but the guys right around it said he trapped it." In the Cal locker room, opinion was divided as to whether Nicker-. son made a legal interception. Cal used a no-huddle offense and periodically stacked three wide receivers to one side of the field. "We hadn't seen much of it in the films, but then things like a no- huddle don't show up in the films," Rogers said. "We expected them to try things like that." The no-huddle offense kept ASU in its basic defense much of the game and cut down on the Sun Devils' blitz. Cal quarterback Gale Gilbert, who completed 19 of 35 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns, was sacked four times for 21 yards in losses. In a 15-0 victory here last, year, the Sun Devils had 13 sacks. "We played our best game today," said Cal coach Joe Kapp, whose team snapped a two-game losing streak and improved its record to 4-4-1 overall and 2-3-1 in the Pac-10. "The no-huddle offense puts some stress on their defense. It gets them out of certain things." ASU's starting quarterback, Todd Hons, completed 18 of 38 passes for 246 yards but was intercepted three times. Osiecki hit Clack carried 25 times for 97 yards. Crawford added 44 yards in 11 tries. ' ,'.'-,.,'! ' Rogers said he went to Osiecki in the fourth quarter "because we hadn't been successful." "Sandy handled the situation very well," Rogers said, "but he had the advantage of good field position, which we hadn't had earlier." Cal caught ASU off guard with the game less than a minute old. Wide receiver Ranee McDougald slipped behind the Sun Devil secondary, Gilbert delivered the ball right on target and McDougald ran 73 yards for a touchdown with ASU safety David Fulcher in pursuit. ASU struck back on its first possession, going 71 yards in 9 plays for a touchdown. Hons passed 3 yards to fullback Tex Wright for the score.

Hobart broke three tackles on the run. 1 Hobart's TD was set up by one.bf NAU's four turnovers in the second half. Lumberjacks quarterback Mike Mendoza was intercepted three times in the second half, twice ending drives deep into Idaho territory, and Vince Dozier lost a fumble after making a reception. Late in the third quarter, Steve Simpson intercepted a pass by Mendoza and returned the ball to the NAU 17. Andrew Smith scored for Idaho on a 2-yard run early in the fourth quarter. Tim McMonigle kicked a 33-yard field goal , for Idaho with 6:45 remaining, and Nolan Harper " sacked Mendoza in the end zone for a safety with 74 seconds left. Mendoza, who completed 29 of 49 passes for 324 yards, threw one interception in the first half, but NAU regained possession one play later on a fumble recovery. The Vandals led, 21-10, at the half. Idaho got its third touchdown when Hobart found Brian Allen in single coverage to the, end zone and hit Allen with a '27-yard scoring pass while the Lumberjacks were blitzing. On its previous possession, Idaho took its first lead when Hobart hit Allen with a 7-yard TO strike. NAU iled, 10-0, w the first quarter.

He had intercepted two passes, returning one 66 yards for a touchdown. His heroics moved Washington coach Don James to say he had "never, never" had a Washington cornerback play a better game. Brewer claimed that Jackson was guilty of interference on the two--point attempt. "I got a little of a hand on the ball, but I had more of my hands on his hands," Jackson said. "That receiver,- he tried to drive me outside and then make a hard move inside. I thought that was strange." Credit Washington with either good scouting or good intuition on the play. "We didn't figure he would drop back," James said. "We thought it would either be a bootleg or a roJlojut We warned our wide people -"main him." , James said. The two-point conversion attempt followed a 34-yard touchdown pass from Tunnicliffe to tailback Vance Johnson with 2:53 to go. Johnson ran out of two tackles and sprinted into the end zone, the TD cutting Washington's lead to' 23-22. But Tunnicliffe was pressured as he released the pass and hobbled to the sideline, reinsuring the left ankle he'd turned in September at Washington State. Smith at first sent Zendejas onto the field for an attempt at a game-tying conversion kick. But the UA coach changed his mind and instead sent the offense back to try for a two-pointer and the lead, even though Jenkins, a redshirted freshman, would be at the throttle. Zendejas had capped a 12-play drive with 6:34 to go on a 31-yard field goal, and UA trailed, 23-16. And he'd kicked his career-. longest 54-yard field goal with 14:20 eft.UAwaidown, 23-13.

GLENDALE Scottsdale Community College capped a second-half rally with two touchdowns in the final 16 seconds and beat Glendale, 33-24, Saturday night. The loss dropped Glendale (4-3-1 overall, 2-1-1 Arizona Community College Athletic Conference) from the top of the league standings and out of contention for its second straight title. But the victory was little comfort for Scottsdale (6-2, 2-2). Phoenix College's 17-15 win over Arizona Western eliminated Scottsdale from the conference race. Mesa also was knocked out of the picture with a loss to Eastern Arizona.' That leaves PC, Glendale and Eastern Arizona with a shot at winning the championship. Phoenix College can clinch it with a win at Scottsdale. If the Bears lose, Glendale can tie them with a win over Eastern Arizona. Eastern Arizona also can clinch it with a win and a PC loss. Trailing 241, Scottsdale began its comeback with 1:32 left in the game. Scottsdale quarterback Brad Ipsen moved the Artichokes from their own 13-yard line to the 48 with a 35-yard completion to halfback Andre White. Later, he hit White with a 24-yard pass on a fourth and 5 at the Glendale 35. Wide receiver Daryl Moore caught his second touchdown pass of the game on the following play and gave Scottsdale a 27-24 lead with 16 seconds remaining. Jim Nimtz's extra-point kick was blocked. . - On the first play from scrimmage after the ensuing kickoff, Glendale quarterback Andy Woodring fumbled in the end zone.
