"I told myself going into the season that I was going to get 1,000," he said. "A lot of people didn't think that would happen. Then, when I got closer to the record, I wanted that." Marcellus Davis replaced Oliver. He had carried the ball just four times for three yards all season but had 53 yards on 15 carries and scored a touchdown. "That touchdown (on a 23-yard run) felt real good, especially coming down to the end of the season," Davis said. "I took my role for what it was this season, but everybody wants to play," Davis said. "Winslow and I are different types of runners. He's faster, and he's smaller. I give the defense another type of back to look at." But even Davis said he was disappointed for Oliver. "I wanted to see him do it," Davis said. "It wouldn't have reflected just on him; it would have reflected on the whole team." Torn Ligaments Hurt Shot at Rushing Mark By Dennis Latta JOURNAL STAFF WRITER Winslow Oliver had a lot of trouble feeling like a winner Saturday afternoon. Everyone else on the football team at the University of New Mexico was wearing a broad smile as they headed to the locker room after the game. The Lobos had just beaten Texas-El Paso 35-14. Just getting to the locker room was a lot tougher for Oliver, and smiling was out of the question. He was on crutches. Oliver, a running back, needed 182 yards in his last two games to break UNM's all-time rushing record. He was averaging 117.1 yards a game and was eighth in the nation with 1,059 yards on the season. Just 4 minutes and 48 seconds into the first half, Oliver's hopes for the school record were twisted and then bent in the form of torn ligaments in his right knee. He finished the day with four yards on three carries. It's very doubtful he'll get a chance in UNM's final game against Colorado State next Saturday. "I've never felt any pain like that," Oliver said. "When I tried to get up, I knew something was seriously wrong." According to UNM trainer .Larry Willock, "It's very questionable Winslow will be able to play next week. He has some problems with ligaments. We just knew for certain he was done for the day. He'll have an MRI next week, and then we'll know for certain." The odds of Oliver being back next Saturday are slim. "Hopefully, it's not as bad as it seems," Oliver said. "I'm already frustrated. I felt good coming into this game. I really wish I could have played." It's hard for a freshman to be disappointed that he gained more than 1,000 yards, but Oliver shut down the Memphis State rushing game as the visiting Vols posted a victory. STATE COLLEGES Central Okla. 35, ENMU 13 Central Oklahoma scored a pair of TDs in the first half to beat the host Greyhounds. Eastern finished 5-5, 3-3 in the Lone Star Conference. Central ended 64, 24 in the Lone Star Conference. N.M. Highlands 49, Colo. Mines 42 Highlands QB Jermaine Whitaker threw for five TD passes for the Cowboys' home win. NMHU is 7-3-1, 3-3 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. Colorado Mines is 4-6, 2-5 in RMAC. Adams State 30, Western N.M. 21 Bill Geiser rushed for three touchdowns to lead the Indians to a win over host WNMU. Adams State built a 30-7 lead after three quarters before Western scored two late FROM STAFF AND WIRES REPORTS AUBURN, Ala. Auburn's James Bostic was stopped at the goal line, and time ran out before the Tigers could get off another play as No. 12 Georgia held on for a 14-10 college football victory Saturday. Garrison Hearst scored two touchdowns for Georgia (8-2 overall, 6-2 Southeastern Conference). Auburn (54-1, 24-1) was inside the Georgia 1 with 19 seconds left. Bostic dove into the line and fumbled short of the end zone. Both teams claimed they had the ball. As the officials tried to sort things out, time expired. (11) Florida 14, S. Carolina 9 Shane Matthews scored on a quarterback sneak and threw a 36-yard TD pass to Aubrey Hill to jumpstart Florida's offense and lead the host Gators over South Carolina (4-6, 3-5). The win for Florida (7-2, 5-2) moves it within one victory of clinching a berth in the inaugural Southeastern Conference (13) Colorado 25, (20) Kansas 18 James Hill's &-yard touchdown run with 2:09 left capped a 42-yard drive that lifted Colorado over host Kansas, moving the Buffaloes a half-game behind Nebraska in the Big Eight race. (14) N.C. State 45, Duke 27 Anthony Barbour scored two touchdowns and became the fifth North Carolina State player to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season as the host Wolfpack defeated struggling Duke (2-8, 0-7). (19) Ohio State 27, Indiana 10 Robert Smith rushed for a career-high 175 yards and scored touchdowns on runs of 64 and 9 yards in the third quarter as visiting Ohio State beat Indiana (5-5, 34). Ohio State is 8-2, 5-2 in the Big Ten. (23) Tennessee 26, Memphis St. 21 Charlie Garner rushed for 109 yards, and the Tennessee defense touchdowns. WNMU is 4-5, and Adams State is 3-7. UNM Escapes Cellar, Routs UTEP 35-14 f s 1 fTFrrnrri ed a UTEP punt, and Becton recovered in the end zone. But the Lobos were offside. UTEP avoided the TD, but Bunn broke his leg on the play. Brown, carrying for the 21st time this season, scored his sixth touchdown of the year, tying the game late in the first quarter. After a Margolis field goal made it 10-7, UNM faced a fourth-and-2 at the UTEP 26 with 7:03 left in the half. Case found Marcus Goodloe all alone on the right sideline, giving UNM a first-and-goal at the 2. Three plays later, running back Eric Young dove over center Justin Hall for a' 1-yard touchdown. UNM led 17-7. With five seconds left in the half, Margolis set his scoring record with a 20-yard field goal. David Margolis made two field goals and three extra points to give him the school scoring record. "He's had a great career here,' Franchione said. UNM could have had a lot of trouble here. Oliver, who had accounted for 38 percent of UNM's total offense yards between his rushing and receiving, tore a ligament in his right leg. But his replacement, Marcellus Davis, cut right and reached over the goal line to score on a 23-yard play with 5:17 to go in the first quarter. That gave UNM a 7-0 lead. That score was only UNM's second touchdown in the first quarter this season. For a moment, UNM thought it was up 13-0. Herb McKinley block CONTINUED FROM PAGE F1 Brown), they'd have to go to their passing game." When UTEP, down 28-14 with seven minutes left, went to its passing game, Lobos cornerback Eric Jack was there to break up a play on third down, and another on fourth down. After the last one, Jack turned to the sparse crowd of 14,575 and posed. It's a signature of his own that he hasn't been able to perform this season. "In the past," said Jack, who's from El Paso, "I haven't been making the plays under pressure. I thought since this is against my hometown, I'd make those plays like I should."
