6 Del RiO NeWS-Herald Monday, Nov«mb«r 8,1993 Sports LOCAL/NATIONAL Collins gets scare IRVING (AP) — Giants cor- nerback Mark Collins had a scare in the fourth quarter when he injured his back, but the injury was diagnosed as a lower back strain after X-rays proved negative. "You're talking about possible paralysis when you're in that area of the back," coach Dan Reeves said. "You want to be cautious because it's in the spinal area. But I think he'll be fine." ... Giants quarterback Phil Simms was knocked out of action twice. He was replaced for one play late in the second quarter by backup Kent Graham after Simms hurt his right elbow when he was pressured by defensive end Tony Tolbert. Simms went to the sidelines for the rest of the afternoon midway through the fourth quarter when he was hit in the helmet on another Tolbert sack, leaving Graham to mop up ... Dallas' Emmitt Smith surpassed Robert Newhouse to move into fourth place on the Cowboys' all-time rushing list... Cowboys were concerned about their run defense. They stood 16th in the league against the run entering Sunday's game but they are keeping opponents out of the end zone. Dallas had held its last seven foes to one touchdown or less ... The Giants hadn't gone consecutive games without a touchdown since 1983 ... Giants running back Rodney Hampton was on the Giants inactive list after speculation that he would attempt to play. Hampton has been out since undergoing ar- throscopic knee surgery on Oct. 7, although he said an accompanying ankle injury is bothering him more. "I could have played but I wouldn't have helped the team," Hampton said. "I might have twisted the ankle again and that really would have set me back."... Dallas backup tight end Jim Price suffered a torn tendon in his right ankle during practice last week and will have surgery this week. Price could, acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams, could be out for the season ... Tight end Jay Novacek moved into 10th place on the Cowboys' all- time receptions list. Coin' for it Injuries slow down Cowboys, Giants By The Associated Press IRVING (AP) — Troy Aikman, who had completed of 11 of 13 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns, was forced to leave Sunday's game with the New York Giants in the third quarter with what was diagnosed as a left hamstring strain. Aikman, who completed his first 10 passes, was hurt with 9:30 seconds left in the period as he tried to scramble away from Giants' defensive end Keith Hamilton while rolling out on a pass play. He went down without contact as his left leg buckled beneath him. "I just felt it pull and I went down," Aikman said afterward. "I was pretty worried then, more than I am now." Cowboys' trainer Kevin O'Neill said he didn't think the strain was too severe. "But it will be 24-48 hours until we^ really know," O'Neill samT "We'll have to see how he responds." In the fourth period, Giants' cornerback Mark Collins was taken from the field on a cart after making a tackle on Emmitt Smith. The injury was diagnosed initially as a strain of the lower back. O'Neill said x-rays were negative and that Collins was able to move both his arms and legs. Ram defenders go after an Eagle during Friday night's 34-0 shut out of Eagle Pass. The victory marks the first championship for the Rams in 20 years, by having a perfect 10-0 season record. Holyfield regains title from Bowe College Roundup By ED SCHUYLER JR AP Boxing Writer LAS VEGAS — On a shocking Saturday night, Evander Holyfield regained the heavyweight championship from Riddick Bowe in a fight that was delayed 20 minutes when a parachutist crashed into the ring. Holyfield took the IBF and WBA titles in a majority decision nearly a year to the day that he lost the title to Bowe. Judge Chuck Giampi called it 114-114, Patricia Jarman scored it 115-114 and Jerry Roth had it 115-113, both for Holyfield, who became the fourth man to become heavyweight champion at least twice. The AP favored Bowe 115-112. Holyfield's victory was only part of one of the most bizarre nights in heavyweight history. At 1:10 into the seventh round, the fight was stopped when a man on a propeller-driven parachute descended into the outdoor stadium at Caesar's Palace, hit the top rope and tumbled into the ringside seats. He was removed handcuffed on a stretcher. It was originally announced that the man broke his neck, but he was later reported hospitalized in fair condition with no broken bones. During the confusion, Bowe's pregnant wife, Judy, fainted and was also removed on a stretcher as a precaution. After the fight, Bowe's 82-year-old trainer, Eddie Futch, was also removed on a stretcher as a precaution, reportedly because'he was feeling fa^nt. Bowe left immediately after the fight to be with his wife. "I knew I was up against the best big man in the world," the 31-year-old Holyfield said after the fight. But during the fight he refused to acknowledge that. Although Bowe appeared to control the early rounds and also the last couple of rounds, Holyfield had the champion in trouble on a couple of occasions — the fifth and 10th rounds. "I knew it was going to take a real fight and I could not make the mistakes I made the j; first time," Holyfield said. k ','",,,]'; j( '. : ., Th'e big" mistake he made in losing to Bowe, he said, was that he concentrated on getting a knockout. On this cool night., Holyfield fought toe to toe with Bowe but also boxed more than he has in the past. And in the fifth .it appeared he might get his knockout. The fourth round ended on a wild note, as both men went toe to tae for at least five seconds after the bell. They were finally parted by Emanuel Steward, Holyfield's trainer, referee Mills Lane and a representative of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. In the fifth, Holyfield, who weighed 217, hurt the 246-pound Bowe with a hard right and two more head punches that sent him backwards. Holyfield leaped to the attack ; w.ith a. left-righl^two more head punches arid a fight to the head. By The Associated Press Charlie Ward and Arizona completed the same amount of passes. Zero. Ward sat out No. 1 Florida State's 49-20 victory over Maryland, leaving the quarterbacking duties to Danny Kanell. The backup threw five TD passes. Arizona was without its top two quarterbacks, so tailback Chuck Levy took over and led an option attack that accumulated 389 yards rushing in the Wildcats' 31-10 victory over Oregon. Levy threw only one pass — an incompletion. Ward, who injured his ribs the previous week against Wake Forest, is expected to be ready to play next week against No. 2 Notre Dame. Levy was called on to direct the Arizona offense with injuries sidelining drop-back quarterbacks Dan White and Brady Batten. Levy last ran Arizona's since-abandoned option offense late in the 1991 season. "They didn't know what was coming," Levy said. "We kept things secret."

No. 4 Nebraska 21, Kansas 20 At Lawrence, Kan., the Jayhawks (4-6, 2-3 Big Eight) went for a 2-point conversion in the final minute and failed. Nebraska (9-0, 5-0) has two games remaining — both at home — against unranked Iowa State and No. 17 Oklahoma. No. 5 Ohio State 14, No. 14 Wisconsin 14 At Madison, Wis., Marlon Kerner blocked a 33-yard field goal try with one second left to preserve the tie with the Badgers (7-1-1. 4-1-1 Bid Ten). Briefs By The Associated Press BOXING LAS VEGAS — Evander Holyfield regained the heavyweight championship from Riddick Bowe in a fight stopped when a parachutist crashed into the ring. Saturday night's seventh- round scene at Caesars Palace, during which the chutist tumbled u>to the ringside seats and was briefly beaten by spectators, stepped the fight for 21 minutes and ended with the man removed on a stretcher.
