Iowa updatli After beating Hawaii, 53-10, and Iowa State, 29-10, Iowa has an open date this week. The Hawk-eyes, who Jumped to 10th in the Associated Press poll, don't play again until Sept. 28, when they meet Northern Illinois in their final non-conference game at Iowa City. "For the first time in my life, I'm giving my players two consecutive days off Sunday and Monday," Coach Hayden Fry said. Fry said the first two games have left him "real impressed with my defense." Generally, he likes how the entire team has progressed. However, punting remains a problem. Fry called it "terrible" against Iowa State. Jim Hujsak and Scott Fisher combined to average only 28 yards on five punts. "We can't win with that kind of punting," Fry said. "In the next two weeks, we'll take a look at Todd Romano, our freshman punter." Romano averaged 43.1 yards a punt as a senior at Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, Fla. Fry had hoped to withhold him from competition this season, but now may change his mind. Quarterback Matt Rodgers didn't play particularly well against Iowa State, but Fry said he wasn't that displeased. "Matt wasn't going for statistics," Fry said. "Other than forcing the pass that resulted in an interception, he did a good job." Rodgers finished with six completions in 15 attempts for 135 yards and two touchdowns. ; Iowa Injury update "Jeff Anttila is going to be out a while with a torn hamstring," Fry said. Anttila, a split end, was injured against Iowa State. Defensive tackle Mike Wells didn't suit up for the Iowa State game because of a knee injury. North Illinois updati: Willy Roy's first college field-goal attempt, a 25-yarder with 3 minutes 15 seconds remaining, gave Northern Illinois a 22-21 victory against Arkansas State on Saturday. A 38-yard, field-goal attempt for Arkansas State with 23 seconds left was wide, ensuring the Huskies' 14th consecutive victory at home. Northern Illinois scored in the first quarter on a 52-yard run by Adam Dach, who had 194 yards on 24 carries. Northern Illinois plays at Kansas State Saturday night. Horthtrn Illinois injury update: The Huskies had no players injured Saturday. However, they lost two nose guards earlier. Richard Kennedy is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. Eric White is hurt and won't be Nancy Scranton celebrates her victory in the du Maurier Classic. Massey can't hold off last charge by Scranton Nancy Scranton birdied the 17th and 18th holes to close out a sensational 4-under-par 31 score on the back nine and claim her first LPGA Tour victory Sunday at the du Maurier Ltd. Classic at Coquitlam, British Columbia. Scranton won $105,000 from the prize pot of $700,000. The birdie from 7 feet on the 17th hole broke a tie with Debbie Massey, who had led or shared the lead since her opening-day 67. Massey three-putted the 18th, which gave Scranton a three-shot victory. Scranton, 30, of Tampa, Fla., closed with a 3-under-par 68 and a 72-hole total of 279. She shot her way into contention during the third round Saturday with a 64 to break the course record. Scranton trailed Massey by three shots through 12 holes Sunday, but eagled the par-4 13th and birdied the 14th to pull into a tie. It was Scranton's first victory in seven years on the LPGA Tour. Scranton, who was divorced earlier this year, formerly played under the surname Brown. Massey was second at 282 after shooting a 73 on the 6,421-yard Vancouver Golf Club course. Three players tied for third at 284 Laura Davies, Pamela Wright and Trish Johnson. B Seniors to Thompson. Playing in a steady rain, Rocky Thompson sank "a real easy putt" on the final hole to snap a tie with Bruce Crampton and win the Digital Seniors Classic golf tournament at Concord, Mass. "I'm the man," Thompson, the mayor of Toco, Texas, said to the gallery before sinking the 10-foot birdie putt for the victory. Thompson's second victory in 624 PGA tournaments, starting in 1964, was worth $60,000. He said he used a light and sound machine to help him relax before shooting a 2-under-par 70 Sunday. He finished at 11 under par in the $400,000 tournament at Nashawtuc Country Club. Lee Trevino slipped into a third-place tie with Mike Hill, two strokes behind Crampton. Crampton closed with a 68, Trevino had a 72 Sunday and Hill shot a 68. LanCOmfl Trophy. New Zealander Frank Nobilo held off a crowding field to win the Lancome Trophy tournament at St. Nom La Breteche, France. Nobilo shot a closing 5-under-par 65 on the 6,756-yard Saint-Norn course to finish at 267 and win by one shot. "I've had three second places in the last 12 months and I thought golf was passing me by," Nobilo said. HCAA LEADERS RUSHING back until mid-season. Ron Maly Art. Yds. Avg. Game Faulk.

' Oppontnt: Wisconsin (1-0). Whanwhom 1 p.m., Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, Wis. TolivisioniNone. ' Iowa Stata updatai Iowa State Coach Jim Walden said Sunday that quarterback Chris Pedersen probably accepted more blame than he should have for the Cyclones' 29-10 loss to Iowa Saturday. "But that's the kind of kid be is," Walden said. "We're putting an awful lot of the load on Chris," Walden said. "It's not fair, but it's the way it has to be. Seventy percent of what we're going to do on offense this year is going to be done with Chris Pedersen pulling the trigger. He is the engineer, we don't have a conductor on this train. He's the engineer, brakeman and everything else." Pedersen ran and passed for 91 yards Saturday, but was under constant pressure from Iowa's defensive line. Walden, who will be looking for the first victory against a team from the Big Ten Conference Saturday at Wisconsin, said he is concerned about the lack of offense from his tailbacks. Before the season, he said he wanted 150 yards a game from the trio of players who will see action at the position, but got 35 yards against Iowa and 110 in the opener against Eastern Illinois. Lamont Hill, who started at tailback the past two games, is averaging 31 yards in the two games. Freshman Leonard Holmes is averaging 23, and Sherman Williams rushed for 37 yards in the opener but was held out of Saturday's game because of an ankle injury. Iowa Stat injury update: "I walked out of the locker . room feeling positive about one thing Saturday," Walden . said Sunday. "I saw no new injuries." WisooRtln update: Troy Vincent returned a punt a school-record 90 yards for a touchdown in helping Wisconsin to a 31-13 victory against Division I-AA Western Illinois Saturday. Vincent had another 151 yards in kick returns. Barry Alvarez, who was an Iowa assistant for eight . seasons, is in his second season as coach of the Badgers. ; Included on Alvarez' coaching staff are former Iowa as- sistants Bernie Wyatt and Dan McCarney. The Badgers ' had a 1-10 record in 1990. Another Badger link to the state of Iowa is tight end Michael Roan, a second-year freshman from Iowa City who caught his first touchdown pass against Western 1111- nois. Randy Peterson Torretta.

Cyclone Stadium proved to be aptly named as tricky winds played a role in Iowa's 29-10 victory over the Cyclones. Schnoor averaged 36.4 yards on five punts. To ISU punter, Cyclone Stadium poses challenge By RANDY PETERSON Rtgtiiw Still Writer AMES, IA. The bus carrying the Iowa State football team from a local motel hadn't quite reached the athletic complex Saturday morning when Jon Schnoor knew what kind of day he was going to have. Schnoor saw the flags atop the stadium and knew it was going to be another day when Cyclone Stadium lived up to its name. Schnoor is a punter and, by definition of the position, he prefers relative calm. That's one of the reasons his college career began inside the Metrodome, as a punter for the University of Minnesota. But that's also where he discovered, the hard way, there is more to life than dead air. Not getting an opportunity to put foot to ball also can be a problem. And that's what led Schnoor to Iowa State. "Jon Schnoor can be as good as there is," Iowa State Coach Jim Walden said Sunday. "He's really good. He doesn't seem to care about the wind, and that's becoming more important here all the time. He can hit that thing against the wind better sometimes than guys can with the wind." Schnoor averaged 36.4 yards on his five punts in Saturday's 29-10 loss to Iowa. He has done better, but it was another of those windy days in and around the stadium. The wind was clocked at 15 mph from the south, which for a punter was enough to throw just about everything out of whack. Schnoor averaged 51.0 yards in two punts with the wind and 26.6 yards in three punts against it. He had another punt blocked, but that wasn't his fault. It came after a low snap from center. Iowa's punters averaged 38.5 yards in two punts with the wind and 18.6 yards in three punts into the wind. "I don't mind a little breeze," Schnoor said Sunday. "A kicker can usually handle a wind up to 10 miles an hou. But that's about the limit. The first thing I do every Saturday when we play here is to see how hard the flags are blowing. Vou can't tell by looking at the trees." But the flags don't lie. "There's a weird wind factor here," Schnoor said. "The wind blows in from the four corners of the stadium, bounces down near the field, then it bounces back up. It might not feel like it's windy at all in the stadium, but if you get one above the stadium (the football) can just take off. There are other times when the wind can be blowing in the stadium, but won't be blowing above it." But such frustration isn't anything near what Schnoor felt as a freshman at Minnesota. As is often the situation with punters, he was not offered a scholarship after graduating from West Des Moines Dowling High School. He still wanted to play, but didn't see "Help Wanted" signs at Iowa State or Iowa. "So I went to Minnesota, where I thought I was going to get a chance to kick a lot," Schnoor said. "I didn't get that chance, so I transferred here." Schnoor, a junior, sat out the 1989 season, then averaged 41 yards on 36 punts last season. "I'm very skeptical of most high school punters because at that level, the punting is unreliable," Walden said. "You get a lot of shanked punts that roll 15 or 20 yards, a lot of teams don't field punts because they have a personnel problems, and you don't know whether you can trust the person keeping the statistics all the time. You hear about these 48-yard averages, then you go to a game to watch him and the longest punt he hits is 36 yards with a roll." That wasn't the case with Schnoor. "In Jon, everybody told us he was a good hitter, but we had Judge Johnston and he had two more years," Walden said. "That was during the time when as bad as our numbers were, we couldn't afford to have that many scholarship kickers. We couldn't have kickers on scholarship without any blockers and tacklers." Schnoor understands the hesitance to offer a punter a scholarship as a freshman. "I still don't think it's fair," he said. "But I can see how it happens. That's a lot of money to spend on a person who can do only one thing. I think he needs to prove himself first." San Diego State freshman rushes to record 388 yards SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (AP) - Freshman Marshall Faulk set a NCAA record with 386 yards rushing on 37 carries and scored seven touchdowns Saturday night to lead San Diego State past Pacific, 55-34. Faulk, given increased playing time when starting running back T.C. Wight was injured in the first quarter, broke the previous record of 377 yards rushing in a Division I-A game, set by Anthony Thompson of Indiana in 1989 against Wisconsin on 52 carries. "After that third touchdown, I said to myself, 'Golly, stuff like this doesn't happen to a freshman,' " Faulk said. "I also told myself, 'Keep playing harder and harder. Do it more one time, one more time.' " B Cross-country meet. Four of the top 10 runners in last year's Class 2-A girls' state high school cross-country meet will compete in today's 37-school Ballard Invitational. Heading the field are three runners from Gilbert High School, which was second in the team standings of the 1990 Class 2-A meet and is ranked No. 1 this year as a 1-A school.
