6B Reno Evening Gait-He Monday, September 20. 1982 BIG SKY ROUNDUP Bengal offense hits nigh gear From wire service reports At the start of the 1982 Big Sky Conference football season, coach Dave Kragthorpe of defending league and NCAA Division I-AA champion Idaho State said his Bengals' defense would probably overshadow the ISU offense. The Idaho State defense has lived up to Kragth-orpe's pre-season prediction, but the Bengal offense is already in full gear after just two games. Junior quarterback Paul Peterson ran for two touchdowns Saturday night and safety Brent Koetter returned an interception 60 yards for a third ISU TD as the Bengals whipped Portland State 38-14 for their eighth consecutive win. In Saturday's other non-conference games for Big Sky teams, Idaho defeated Pacific 26-17, Montana crushed Puget Sound 38-10 and Montana State beat Eastern Washington 24-20. Weber State was the only non-leagueloser, 31-10 at Utah State. Northern Ari zona was idle. Kragthorpe said Idaho State could have easily scored more against Portland State, a team that had defeated ISU two years ago to extend the Bengals' losing streak to 19 straight games the year Kragthorpe first moved to Pocatello to turn ISU around. But the third-year coach said, "That's not our style, to run up the score. Plus, we wanted as many of our reserves as possible to get some playing time because the schedule gets tougher each week." Peterson had a solid performance, completing 16 passes for 219 yards with only one interception. But, he failed to throw a touchdown pass and had to settled for the two TDs rushing. The transfer from San Diego City College got his first score on a broken play. Peterson had stepped back to hand off to a running back, only to find himself alone in the backfield. He saw a hole in the middle of the line and scampered 12 yards into the end zone. Peterson's second TD was on a quarterback sneak as he slipped around left guard for the 2-yard score. "Paul had a good game," Kragthorpe said. "It was different from our regular passing offense, but he got the job done." Koetter's interception return for a TD gave ISU a 24-0 lead early in the second quarter, and then the Bengals just tried to run out the clock and avoid injuries. Koetter also picked off another pass, returning the ball eight yards. The Bengals' other TDs came on a 30-yard run by Chris Cawdery in the third quarter and backup quarterback Mike Busch's 2-yard keeper in the final period. ISU had opened the scoring on Perry Larson's 22-yard field goal early in the first quarter. Portland State was never in the game, scoring its two touchdowns at the ends of each half. Ken Hobart passed for 296 yards and three touchdowns in Idaho's win over Pacific. Washington defense stops Arizona From wire service reports An almost flawless Washington defense held Arizona to only two field goals and a last-minute touchdown as the top-ranked Huskies tamed the Wildcats 23-13 in the weekend's sole Pacific 10 Conference contest. "I thought our defense did a super job," said Washington coach Don James, whose Huskies allowed host Arizona only 19 yards rushing. Washington quarterback Steve Pelluer turned two fumble recoveries by linebacker Mark Stewart into touchdown passes and kicker Chuck Nelson hit field goals from 42, 24 and 22 yards as the Huskies amassed a 20-0 halftime lead and coasted to their second victory of the season and first in the league. Arizona quarterback Tom Tunnicliffe gained more than 290 yards passing but was unable to score until he connected with split end Brad Anderson on a 50-yard toss with three seconds left in the game. Freshman Max Zendejas kicked two field goals as Arizona fell to 1-1 overall and in the conference. In other games involving Pac 10 teams, UCLA humiliated Wisconsin 51-26, Southern Cal defeated WEST COAST ROUNDUP Indiana 28-7, San Jose State overcame Stanford 35-31, Arizona State toppled Houston 24-10, California shut out San Diego State 28-0, Fresno State downed Oregon 10-4, Washington State fell to Colorado 12-0 and Louisiana State smashed Oregon State 45-7. Elsewhere in West Coast football action, Long Beach State bowed to Wyoming 36-27, Idaho beat University of Pacific 36-17, Cal State-Fullerton topped Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo 14-10 and New Mexico smashed Nevada-Las Vegas 49-21. UCLA quarterback Tom Ramsey passed for 260 yards and two touchdowns and also scored on a pair of 1-yard dives as the 14th-ranked Bruins improved their season record to 2-0. Wisconsin, 0-2, managed to gain only 66 net yards rushing on its home field after being limited to four net yards on its first five possessions. "That was the worst football game we've played since I don't know when," said Wisconsin Coach Dave McClain. USC's ranked Trojans, 1-1, did all their work in the first half, converting their first four possessions into touchdowns. Southern Cal sophomore quarterback Sean Salisbury, recovering from last week's 17-9 upset loss to Florida, threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score. "I feel a lot better than I did last week," Salisbury admitted. San Jose quarterback Steve Clarkson connected on three touchdown passes and ran for the winning score as the Spartans downed Standford. Cardinal quarterback John Elway passed for 382 yards and two touchdown but was unable to prevent his team s second straight loss to the team coached by his father, John Elway. Arizona State turned two fumble recoveries and a blocked punt into touchdowns as the Sun Devils improved their record to 3-0 at Houston's expense. California linebacker Ron Rivera made two of the Golden Bears' five fumble recoveries from San Diego State as Cal improved its record to 2-0 in its home opener under Coach Joe Kapp, a former Cal quarterback. It was an intense 4-year rivalry for the Elways STANFORD (AP) - Father and son stood under the old, gnarled oak tree, posed as though in a painting by Norman Rockwell. The tumult of touchdown bombs and circus-like plays were over. The last of 60,000 fans were leaving Stanford Stadium with picnic baskets and flasks empty. The network television crew was rolling up its miles of wire and tossing beer cans on the ground. Jack Elway, arms crossed on his chest, faced his son, John, and listened to the young man's soft voice as they went over the final minutes of their intense four-year rivalry. Coach Elway's San Jose State Spartans, one of the most innovative offensive squads in college football, had just ruined Stanford quarterback John Elway's 382-yard, two touchdown passing performance with a 35-31 triumph over the Cardinal. The rivalry ended in a draw. Stanford won in 1979, when John was a second-string freshman quarterback, and again in 1980, when Jack was just beginning to stamp his special brand of football on the Spartans. San Jose crushed Stanford last year, when Jack mercilessly sent an unrelenting rush against his son, who was hobbled by a sprained ankle. This year's San Jose victory, only the sixth in 39 meetings between the schools, marked the first time the Spartans had won two years in a row. John Elway, sweeping the dirt with his foot, looked up from the late afternoon shadow of the tree when he saw Spartan quarterback Steve Clarkson pass nearby. "Nice going, Steve," John yelled. Clarkson had thrown the ball for 285 yards and three touchdowns, and sneaked the ball into the end zone from the three-yard line for the winning score. "Thanks. Nice game yourself," Clarkson said. The two quarterbacks had put on a splendid show, yet even their duel was nearly overshadowed by two other players. San Jose wide receiver Tim Kearse, who hadn't thrown the ball in a game since his quarterback days in York, Pa., High School four years ago, opened the scoring with an 84-yard touchdown pass to receiver Tony Smith in the first quarter, then caught the three TD passes from Clarkson to account for four of the Spartans' touchdowns. On the other side, Stanford halfback Vincent White scored on two touchdown passes but made the crucial blunder of the game when the ball popped loose from his arm on the Stanford 20-yard line with 4:31 remaining. Spartan safety Dirk Hunter-Ellis grabbed the ball and ran it down to the four. Two plays later, Clarkson took it in for the winning points. Quarterback finished CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Jim Kelly, Miami's senior quarterback, who suffered a separated right shoulder in the Hurricanes' 14-8 victory over Virginia Tech, will undergo surgery today that will end his collegiate career, school officials said. Kelly, the key to the Hurricanes' offense, was injured on a fourth-quarter play on which he scrambled for a 20-yard gain at Blacksburg, Va. in Saturday's game. Kelly, from East Brady, Pa., flew home with the team Saturday and underwent an examination Sunday at Doctors Hospital where he was admitted after the diagnosis, said team spokesman Ron Steiner.
