KOKOMO TRIBUNE SPORTS TUESDAY, JAN. 3.1995 B3 Notre ook buffaloes ame in Fiesta Colorado jumps on top early, gives McCartney a going-away present TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Colorado enjoyed the moment and left Notre Dame thinking about the future. "For our players to play so well against a great team like Notre Dame and send us off like this is something I'll savor all my life," coach Bill McCartney said after the Buffaloes capped an 11-1 season with a 41-24 rout of the Fighting Irish in the Fiesta Bowl. McCartney announced his retirement Nov. 19. Quarterback Kordell Stewart, wide receiver Michael Westbrook and tackles Derek West and Tony Berti are the senior standouts. But Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Rashaan Salaam, a junior, upstaged everyone's going-away party by announcing Monday night that he will forego his senior year and play in the NFL. "Like Kordell was saying, I'm leaving with coach Mac," said Salaam, only the fourth player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. He scored on runs of 1, 1 and 5 yards, but Stewart was the Fiesta MVP, hitting 11 of 20 passes for 20S yards and rushing for 143 in seven carries, including a 9-yard TD run while the Buffaloes were building a 31-10 halftime lead. His 348 yards set a team bowl record for total offense and included a 1-yard TD pass to Christian Fauria. Neil Voskeritchian kicked 33- and 48-yard field goals for the Buffs' other points. On defense, Colorado had a similar complete effort. Shannon Clavelle set a Fiesta record with three of Colorado's seven sacks, and, although Notre Dame (6-5-1) gained 408 yards, 247 came in the second half when Ron Powlus was throwing on almost every down. Powlus hit Derrick Mayes for TDs of 7 and 39 yards, and he capped the scoring with a 7-yard throw to Leon Wallace. Afterward, Powlus, a sophomore who didn't throw his first pass in college until the season began, said he hoped to blot out the 1994 season. "As soon as the clock hit zero, I think we all looked ahead to next year," Powlus said. "One thing that I've been saying to all the seniors is that as disappointing as our record was this year, we want to be undefeated next year, we want to be in the national championship hunt." McCartney (93-55-5), the win- ningest coach in Colorado history, beat the Irish 10-9 in the 1991 Orange Bowl to win the school's only national title, This time, there was nothing at stake but pride. Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz (199-89-7) came in looking for his 200th win, and McCartney had guaranteed he wouldn't get it. To confuse the Irish, he revamped the Buffs on both sides of the ball. On defense, Colorado switched from having five players FIESTA BOWL on the line of scrimmage to a 4-3; the offense benched one of the two tight ends and lined up with three wide receivers. "We caught them off balance, which accounted for a lot of the pressure we got out of it," McCartney said. "We made those changes a month ago because we had such great respect for Notre Dame." Despite all the scheming, the game came down to a fourth-quarter interception by linebacker Ted Johnson after Powlus rallied the Irish to a 34-17 deficit. "They were making a game of it, and they needed to go in and score," McCartney said of Johnson's pickoff at the Colorado 26- yard line. "I saw him, but I think what happened a couple of times today, I was trying to squeeze passes under some linebackers' arms, between guys," Powlus said. "He had his arms up and I tried to throw it under his arm. I think that wound up being a pretty good turning point for them." The Buffs, whose 24-7 loss to Nebraska on Oct. 29 prevented them from a perfect season, scored on five of their first six possessions. "I think this probably was as fine a performance a football team has put on against a team I've coached," Holtz said. "I've never seen a team that sharp, that crisp and that effective overall. I don't think anybody in the country could have been beaten them today." Colorado tackle Darius Holland sacks Notre Dame quarterback Ron Powlus.
