Next game: Nov. 2 at Temple Hessler rallies Colorado Quarterback replaces injured Detmer, sparks Buffs past Texas, 28-24 By The Associated Press BOULDER, Colo. — Texas knocked out Koy Detmer but couldn't solve John Hessler's rope-a-dope shenanigans. Hessler replaced an injured Detmer and engineered two second- half scoring drives — overcoming a boneheaded play in the process — and safety Steve Rosga'made a key interception with 1:35 left, allowing No. 8 Colorado to hold'off Texas 28-24 on Saturday. Hessler, who rallied the Buffaloes to comeback wins in five games last season after Detmer went down with a knee injury, scored the clinching touchdown on a 1-yard sneak with 3:10 left. "John Hessler is going to go down in Colorado football history as the Comeback Kid," Buffaloes coach Rick Neuheisel said. "Once again, he rose to the occasion." Neuheisel found kind words for Hessler, but moments earlier he gave his backup quarterback a tongue-lashing on the sideline for a play that appeared to have doomed the Buffs. Colorado was trailing 24-21 early in the fourth quarter when Hessler inexplicably pitched the ball to no one, and defensive end Gray Mosier recovered at the Colorado 16. But Texas' Ricky Williams fumbled two plays later when hit by Mike Phillips, and Rosga recovered at the 10. Hessler then drove the Buffs 90 yards for the clinching score. The Buffaloes (6-1 overall, 4-0 Big 12) spotted Texas 10-0 and 17-7 first-half leads before rallying behind Hessler, who entered the game late in the first half when Detmer suffered a second-degree concussion as he was thrown to the turf on a sack by Mosier. Missouri 35, Oklahoma St. 28 (ot) COLUMBIA, Mo. — After Corby Jones' big day, Missouri turned to an old standby in overtime. Brock Olivo, who topped 2,000 career yards rushing earlier Saturday, scored on an 8-yard run in the extra period as Missouri beat Oklahoma State for its first Big 12 victory. Olivo sat out most of the fourth quarter as coach Larry Smith rotated his backfield.'

"There's no question Brock's a clutch player. They could have brought their whole bench that last play and he would have made it to the end zone." Oklahoma State (4-4, 1-4 Big 12) won the toss in overtime and deferred to Missouri, which needed three plays to pound it in. After Jones ran for 4 yards, Olivo ran up the middle for 13 and then scored over left tackle. Tone' Jones threw four touchdown passes for Oklahoma State, one more than his season total entering the game. He forced the extra period when he hit Terrance Richardson for a 15-yard touchdown with 37 seconds to go. A personal foul against Missouri gave Oklahoma State a first down at the 6 in overtime, but Jones' fourth-down pass from the 3 tipped off the hands of Andre Richardson. Corby Jones ran for 193 yards and three touchdowns and passed for one for Missouri (3-4,1-3). Texas Tech 13, Texas A&M 10 COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Zebbie Lethridge completed an 81- yard touchdown pass to freshman fullback Sammy Morris with 6:20 to play, and Byron Hanspard rushed for 198 yards as the Texas Tech Red Raiders rallied past- Texas A&M.

Tech (5-3 overall) stayed in the Big 12 South race with a 4-2 mark, while A&M dropped to 3-5 and 1-4 before a sellout Kyle Field crowd of 70,147. The Aggies had seized the lead 10-6 in the third quarter after Shun Horn recovered a fumble by Tech's Morris to set up a 28-yard scoring run by freshman Dante Hall. Tech took over the ball with 6:32 to go after the Aggies had to punt following a delay-of-game call. A&M had a 3rd-and-l to convert but couldn't get the play off. Lethridge faked to Hanspard, then found Morris running all alone behind the Aggie secondary and hit him in full stride for the score. A&M drove to the Tech 43, but Branndon Stewart was sacked by Tony Daniels on fourth down. Baylor 49, Iowa State 21 WACO, Texas — Jerod Douglas ran for 154 yards and two scores and Jermaine Alfred threw fo£ three touchdowns in the third quarter, helping Baylor erase a 14- point deficit. The Bears (4-3, 1-3 Big 12) appeared headed for a fourth straight loss after failing to stop the Cyclones (2-5,1-3) on three of their first four possessions and falling behind 21-7 early in the second quarter. But Baylor's Clifton Rubin scored on a 1-yard TD run just before halftimq, and Alfred threw scoring passes of 8 yards to Shawn Washington, 5 yards to Morris Anderson and 68 yards to Pearce Pe- gross in the third quarter before Douglas sprinted 67 yards for a score and a 42-21 lead with 14:43 left in the game.

Passing game keys Bethany's win Munoz sparks run of 34 straight points with fourTD passes as Swedes go to 5-0 in conference By BOB DAVIDSON The Sallna Journal LINDSBORG — Once Bethany found a way to stop Friends' blitz, Swedes! quarterback Jorge Munoz was able to uncork a blitz of his own. Munoz, the third-ranked passer in NAIA Division II, threw for 437 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as No. 14- ranked crushed Friends 55-21 in a Kansas Conference game at Anderson Field. It was a typical Bethany- Friends game. A total of 28 penalties were HIGH SCHOOL Friends 21 Bethany 55 called, resulting in 299 yards being marked off. "They caught us off guard with six in the box at the start," Munoz said. "They were going bump press on our receivers, They thought their defensive backs could hang with our receivers one on one, but you can't do that. "There are no defensive backs at our level who can hang with our wide receivers." Certainly Friends couldn't hang with the Swedes' two senior wide outs Bobby Lugo and Van Mortensen. Lugo caught seven passes for T STATE 211 yards and three touchdowns and Mortensen seven for 145 yards and one TD. One of Lugo's touchdown catches was a spinning, one-handed grab just across the goal line in the second quarter. "It was a simple fade route and Jorge threw it nice," Lugo said. "It looked like it was going to come down right in my hands, but the wind caught it. I turned, reached out and it stuck in my hands. "Our receiving corps loves it when the play bump and press. It's our high percentage play." "We are blessed with good receivers," Bethany coach Ted Kessinger said. "And when you've got a quarterback who puts the ball on the money, it creates problems for the defense. "Jorge's an excellent quarterback. Not only does he throw it well, but he makes great decisions. He checks off well." Bethany actually trailed 14-7 late in the first quarter after Friends' running back Felix Ramirez ran 48 yards for a touchdown on a trap play with 2:09 left in the period. But Bethany scored the next 34 points, including all four Munoz' TD passes, to ice its fifth victory in six games. The Swedes are 5-0 in the KCAC. Friends falls to 3-4 overall, 3-2 in the KCAC. "Their quarterback does the things that make them go," Friends coach Brian Byers said. "If we'd have applied that same pressure a few years ago it would have been a whole different ballgame. "We didn't move the ball on offense and that forced our defense to be on the field too long." Friends' offensive effort came to a stop after quarterback Gilbert Alvarez left the game with an ankle injury with 5:30 left in the first quarter. He returned for three plays in the fourth quarter before leaving for good. Bethany amassed 637 yards total offense — 465 passing. Tailback Mike Godwin cracked the 100-yard mark for the third week in a row, gaining 113 yards on 12 carries. He also scored three touchdowns. Linebacker Delton Nelms led the Bethany defense with 12 tackles, seven unassisted, and one sack. Safety Remington DeGarmo had 11 tackles, seven unassisted. Ramirez led Friends' offense with 103 yards rushing on 16 carries. He scored two touchdowns. Kessinger attributed the penalties to the rivalry between the two. Friends was penalized 16 tunes for 174 yards and Bethany 12 for 125 yards. "I don't think it was a poorly officiated game," he said. "I think it's just the rivalry between the two schools.-It's more than I gave it credit for. People lost their cool more than they should have."
