Safety Lyndon Earley intercepted a pass to set up a score and blunted a BYU drive with a fumble recovery to help San Diego State end its six-game losing streak. BYU, which entered the game as an 18-point favorite, lost for the first time since a season-opening defeat. San Diego State improved to 2-7, and 2-4 in the Western Athletic Conference. The Cougars fell to 7-2, 4-2 in the WAC. Hewitt, whose scores both came on 2-yard runs, finished with 152 yards on 37 carries. Freshman quarterback Scott Barrick, in his second start for San Diego State, threw for 159 yards while completing 14 of 25 throws. The Aztecs, who entered the game with a defense that surrendered an average of 37.6 points per outing, held the Cougars to one of their lowest point totals of the year. Idaho defeats UNR women The University of Idaho defeated the University of Nevada-Reno Saturday night 9-15, 15-11, 15-8, 11-15, 15-1 in a Big Sky Conference volleyball match at the UNR Old Gym. Idaho reeled off 13 consecutive points in the final game before UNR freshman Julie Dobbs had a block kill for UNR's only point of the game. UNR was led by Barrie Dafforn with 21 kills and seven digs. Idaho was led by Stacey Aslund, a sophomore middle blocker, with 13 kills, five digs and seven blocks. UNR dropped to 3-11 in conference play. Idaho raised its record to 4-11. UNR plays next Thursday at Idaho State, then returns home for its final game Saturday at 7:30 p.m. against Northern Arizona. Kentucky star leaves LEXINGTON, Ky. - Shawn Kemp, a 6-foot-ll center who has been embroiled in controversy since arriving at the University of Kentucky this fall, has apparently left the school, it was reported Saturday. WKYT-TV in Lexington quoted Kentucky Athletic Director Cliff Hagan as saying it was his understanding that Kemp, who was ineligible to play basketball this season, had left the university. Kemp could not be reached for comment late Saturday night. Hagan told the station that Kemp had not been comfortable at Kentucky. He apparently wasn't making the necessary effort in his studies, and Hagan said the decision was best for Kemp and all parties concerned. Football fans trampled COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Two horses belonging to the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets cavalry bolted Saturday and trampled three bystanders prior to the Texas A&M-Louisiana Tech football game.

(AP) San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young, involved in a controversy he wants no part of, says he's having a hard time concentrating on today's NFL game against the Phoenix Cardinals. The Bay Area has been buzzing all week over newspaper speculation that the 49ers are ready to trade veteran Joe Montana and elevate Young from backup to starter.

TOi By Michael RappaportGazette-Journal Long after many of his University of Nevada-Reno teammates had dressed and left Mackay Stadium, Charvez Foger stood in his uniform and patiently answered questions. It should have been a happy day for Foger, who scored three touchdowns in the Wolf Pack's 32-31 loss to Idaho to break the NCAA Division I-AA record for career scores. Kenny Gamble of Colgate had scored 57 touchdowns. With two games remaining in his Wolf Pack career, Foger has 59. He also rushed for 169 yards, becoming only the second player ever to top 4,000 yards rushing in the Big Sky Con HAPPY guiding TIME: Jockey Angel Cordero celebrates after Gulch to a mud-splattered victory. to defuse quarterback controversy a foes r mrmjrms a TIME channels' 2-971 pim. being discarded. That's not true," said San Francisco coach Bill Walsh. "The truth is Joe has a bad back. We hope he can suit up for this game and play if called upon. The back is calming down. He had a nerve problem in there. Steve will start until Joe is 100 percent." Young said the media-fueled controversy is a distraction. "You can't ignore it. That would be UNR's Foger snaps Division l-AA football record with 59 career touchdowns ference. Foger's 4,133 yards leave him needing 342 in his final two games to catch Boise State's Cedric Minter, the all-time Sky champion. It was the third-best rushing performance of his career, behind only 195 yards against Eastern Washington in 1987 and 185 against Weber State in 1985. It should have been a happy day. It wasn't. After all the records were in the book, the only numbers that mattered to Foger were the 32 points Idaho scored and the 31 UNR scored. "All I'll remember about this game is the score and how we played," he said. "Idaho wasn't better than us. We dominated both sides of the ball. If they were a Alysheba, Personal Both horses make history in Breeders' Cup races By Reid Chemer Gannett News Service LOUISVILLE, Ky. Alysheba got the money, Personal Ensign ended up with the perfect record and they both made history. Coming into Saturday's $10 million Breeders' Cup, thoroughbred racing's World Series, Alysheba stood to become racing's all-time money earner. Personal Ensign (12-for-12) had the chance to retire undefeated. Both were challenged and both rose to the occasion. Alysheba won the $3 million Classic earning $1,350,000, giving him a career total of $6,679,242. He moves ahead of John Henry's mark of $6,597,947. Personal Ensign fell behind by eight lengths in the $1 Million Distaff. An incredible stretch run allowed her to catch front-runner Winning Colors and win by a nose, in front of a Breeders' Cup record crowd of 71,237. Her victory will make her a favorite in the Horse of the Year voting. The victory early in the day, laid down the gauntlet for Alysheba, the other favorite in the voting.

I try not to get too involved with the speculation. I try not to make anyone want to chose. "I realize Joe is older than me and has accomplished more. I admire Joe and think he's a great player. When he's on the field, I'm 100 percent behind him and he'd behind me. It's mutual respect. We get along really well and I think we've gotten a little closer after all this. "But I know my role," Young said. "It's a week-to-week thing. I keep preparing to play, try to stay positive and try to keep as even a keel as possible. When I get a chance to play, I want to play well." Jl casino woim an Jean Dixon Alkln.'Gazette-Journal soars into the end zone against Idaho. better team, I could accept it." For three-plus quarters, UNR was clearly better. Foger was running effectively, Jim Zaccheo was complementing the run with the pass and the detense was playing classic bend-but-don t-DreaK to ball. Then the Pack collapsed. A block punt led to one touchdown, a fumble to another and a late interception to a third as the Vandals turned a 31-13 deficit into victory. Of the three blunders, the fumble was the one Foger remembered most. It was his.

The victory kept the 49ers (6-3) one game behind the leaders in the NFC West race and made Young the conference's offensive Player of the Week. Phoenix, 5-4, pulled to within a game of the NFC East-leading New York Giants with last week's 16-10 triumph at Dallas. Veteran fullback Earl Ferrell scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns including a decisive 1-yard run with 50 See 49ERS, page 7B Pack blows 18-point lead in last quarter By Larry BadenGazette-Journal The mistakes Saturday afternoon were the same ones the University of Nevada-Reno football team had made in losing its three previous games. But that didn't make the Wolf Pack's 32-31 loss against Big Sky-leading Idaho on Saturday afternoon any easier to believe. "Hell, I saw it. I stood right there on the sidelines and watched it," Idaho head coach Keith Gilbertson said. "I still can't believe we won that football game. It still hasn't sunk in. It could take some time." Actually, Idaho's 18-point, fourth-quarter comeback witnessed by a Mackay Stadium homecoming crowd of 16,410 took only slightly mor than 10 minutes from start to finish. The Wolf Pack's trend toward making mistakes, on the other hand, has been a month in the making. UNR's final four possessions of the game Saturday ended via a blocked punt, a fumble and two interceptions. Those miscues enabled the Vandals to score three fourth-quarter touchdowns by moving the ball a total of 44 yards in the game's final 10 minutes, 38 seconds. Idaho scored the game-winner with 31 seconds remaining when quarterback John Friesz connected with tight end Chris Slater in the end zone for a 5-yard touchdown pass. Idaho strong safety Brian Smith set up Slater's touchdown with a 62-yard interception return. "It rips me up inside to lose four straight," UNR head coach Chris Ault said. "It shouldn't have happened. We have no one to blame but ourselves. "It's the same things we've done the last four weeks: fumbles, special teams, interceptions. It's us beating us." Sound familiar? At Weber State three weeks ago, the Wolf Pack gave up two long punt returns and a 57-yard touchdown pass with no time remaining as the Wildcats scored a 37-31 victory. Two weeks back, an interception, a missed field goal and two fumbles were instrumental in Montana State's 17-14 victory over UNR.

Joining him was Seeking the Gold, who challenged the champion but could never get himself in front as Alysheba won by a half-length. "He wins by what he has to," said McCarron, who was also John Henry's jockey. "I think this one is the better horse." Following the leaders were Waquoit, Forty Niner Cryptoclearance, Personal Flag, Cutlass Reality Lively One and Slew City Slew. Now that Alysheba has set the money record, owner Clarence Scharbauer will have to decide whether to retire him to stud. "We are not sure yet," Scharbauer said. "We are going to do what is best for the horse." See BIG RACE, ack page
