ST. PETERSBURG TIMES SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 4. 1979 7C state colleges Xames shock Wilttainiy Loons Associated Pros STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Miami coach Howard Schnellenberger didn't tell freshman quarterback Jim Kelly that he was starting against Penn State until several hours before Saturday's intersectionai football game. Kelly, who completed 17 of 30 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns in a 26-10 Miami victory, said he then went to his room and regurgitated. Schnellenberger explained that he gave Kelly the young passer's first starting assignment because the coach felt his team had to throw the ball if it hoped to beat favored Penn State. "Kelly is our best thrower," Schnellenberger said. "That's why we made the decision this morning (Saturday) to start him." The Miami coach, brimming with excitement over his team's upset victory over the 19th-ranked Nittany Lions, said of Kelly: "He was just super. I've never seen a quarterback play as well and as poised in his debut as Kelly was today." Kelly, too, felt the excitement of Pitt skips to 28-21 Associated Pratt PITTSBURGH Freshman quarterback Dan Marino threw a pair of touchdown passes to help 12th-ranked (AP) Pittsburgh to a 28-21 victory Saturday over Syracuse, which lost despite three touchdown runs by quick-footed senior quarterback Bill Hurley. Marino, making his first collegiate start because of an injury to Rick Trocano, threw both of his touchdown passes in the last five minutes before halftime. Coupled with an 85-yard punt return touchdown by cornerback Terry White in the first quarter, they gave Pitt (7-1) a 21-6 intermission lead. Syracuse (5-4) came back behind the running of the 5-foot-ll Hurley, who carried 24 times and netted 80 yards rushing. Hurley, who darted one yard for a Syracuse touchdown in the first quarter, added a two-yard touchdown run in the third period to cap a 59-yard drive on which he ran the ball seven times for 44 yards. Marino's 36-yard screen pass to fullback Wayne DiBartola set up an ensuing three-yard touchdown run by Ray "Rooster" Jones that gave Pitt a 28-13 lead through three periods. Early in the fourth period, Hurley ran 10 yards for another touchdown and added a two-point conversion pass to Art Monk to cut the Pitt lead to 28-21 with 11:56 to play. On the next Pitt Beries, Jones lost a fumble that was recovered by the Orangemen at the Pitt 43-yard line. But the Panthers held on downs at their own 35.

"It was the best feeling I've had in my whole life," the quarterback said. "From our scouting reports, we knew they had weak cornerbacks and our receivers have really good speed," Kelly explained. "So we knew we could go deep, although we established the quick outs First." Schnellenberger shouted amid the din of the Miami dressing room, "this day will go down in the history of Miami football as the day we turned our football program around. We beat a great Penn State team with a great effort by everyone on our team. Our defensive unit played tough when it had to." Penn State coach Joe Paterno expressed disappointment over the loss that snapped a four-game Lions' winning streak. "But I wouldn't want to get away from giving Miami credit for having done a great job," Paterno noted. "Kelly deserves a lot of credit," Paterno said of the East Brady, Pa., quarterback whom Penn State sought to recruit and convert into a linebacker. Paterno said Miami came up with the big plays for touchdowns, while EAST Tulane 43 Boston College 8 NEWTON, Mass. Quarterback Roch Hontas, ignoring driving rains fanned by 12 mile per hour winds, threw four first half touchdown passes and set a schcol total offense record in leading Tulane (7-2) to a rout over Boston College (2-6). Hontas, who entered the ame ranked sixth in the nation in total offense, connected on 14 of 24 passes in the downpour for 228 yards and left after the third quarter. He teamed with Darrel Griffin on scoring passes of 41 and 53 yards, hit Rodney Hoi-man on a four-yarder and connected with Bob Moses on a 3-yarder. In addition, Ed Murray booted a pair of first quarter field goals to give the Green Wave a 33-0 halftime lead. Tulane Boston Col.

The first half was close, ending 14-10. Van Pelt opened scoring with less than three minutes gone in the first quarter on a 46-yard romp. Penn tied it 7-7 at 2:29 into the second quarter on a 67-yard Doug Marzonie-to-Nelson Johnson aerial combination. The Quakers' John Dwyer hit a 51-yard field to make it 10-7.

Kemp passed 11 yards to wide receiver Dave Shula for the first touchdown in the first quarter, capping a 65-yard drive in 12-plays. Kemp gained 15 yards in two carries to help set up the third quarter touchdown which gave the Big Green its highest scoring total of the season.

Paterno said Penn State simply couldn't handle Miami's speed. He said the Hurricanes did a fine job of keeping State off balance and a good job in the clutch of cutting down the Lions' running game. Penn State quarterback Dayle Tate, who had an embarrassing afternoon with 11 completions for only 109 yards and three interceptions, insisted, "we're not sweating the fact that we can't throw, because I know we can." Tate made reference to the problems earlier in the week of two Penn State players being arrested, the latest in a series of arrests, ineligibilities, defections, and a general breakdown in discipline that has staggered Paterno's team this season. "We had some things happen that slowed us down a bit in practice. It took awhile to get going," Tate said. Miami, Fla.

The Mountaineers got the go-ahead touchdown with less than three minutes gone in the fourth quarter when Luck threw 32 yards to Darrell Miller, giving West Virginia a 26- 23 lead. Place kicker Steve Sinclair kicked the extra point to make it 27- 23. The scoring strike capped a six-play, 63-yard drive. West Virginia added an insurance touchdown three series later when Dixon galloped 21 yards for a score. In the third quarter, Luck engineered scoring drives of 34 yards on two plays and 46 yards on four plays. Luck hit Cedric Thomas on a 25-yard scoring pass to pull West Virginia to within 10 points at 23-13. The touchdown was set up on an interception by Dennis Fowlkes. The other touchdown was a 16-yard run up the middle by Luck to cut Virginia Tech's lead to 23-20.

Quarterback John Rogan hit Bob Rostomily with a last-minute touchdown pass as Yale (7-0, 5-0) became the first college to win 700 football games with a come-from-behind victory over Cornell (4-3, 3-2). Yale dominated most of the regionally televised game after a scoreless opening quarter beginning with an explosive second quarter that saw Rogan score on a one-yard run, and connect with Rostomily on a 43-yard touchdown pass play. David Schwartz also kicked a 22-yard field goal during that period.

For the third week in a row, Florida A&M University went down in defeat, most certainly ending their hopes of repeating the 1978 Division I-AA national championship. Three weeks ago the Rattlers were riding high, ranked No. 1 in their division and undefeated in five games, including an historic 16-13 victory over the University of Miami. But plagued by injuries particularly to starting quarterback Sammy Knight the Rattlers loss to Tennessee State and Tuskegee. This week's loss was a 19-14 heartbreaker at the hands of Alabama A&M at Milton Frank Stadium. Since only four teams will be invited to post-season play, FAMU would appear to be out of contention. To a great extend, the Rattlers beat themselves. A fumble, an interception and a blocked punt in the end zone led to three of the Bulldog's four scores. The defeat spoiled a fine performance by sophomore tailback Archie Jones, of Fort Lauderdale, who rushed for almost 188 yards on 16 carries and a gutsy performance by 0 q K mart AUTOMOTIVE SfftVtCE POLICY K nuttt policy to pixlom only ntti ti wvitn F youf benefit.

FAMU scored first in the first quarter when Bobby Hawkins ran in from nine yards. Vincent Coleman's extra point made it 7-0. Alabama A&M countered in the second quarter with a one-yard run by Ed McCoy. Then Alabama A&M blocked a Coleman punt deep in Rattler territory and Earnest French fell on it in the end zone for a Bulldog touchdown. The kick failed, making it in 13-7 for the Bulldogs. Knight, substituted for Eric Truvillion and ran in from the one with 24 seconds left to go in the half to make it 14-13 FAMU at the half. After Keith Smith kicked at 35-yard field goal, putting the Bulldogs up 16-14, FAMU drove all the way from their 10 to the Bulldog 14 late in the fourth quarter. The big play on the drive was a 33-yard burst by Jones. But the drive stalled and Coleman came in for a 35-yard field goal attempt that was wide left. The Bulldogs promptly drove deep into Rattler territory, where Smith kicked KM50 4-PLY POLYESTER CORD BLACKWALL TIRES SIZES REG. SALE f.E.T.j C7iM 27.77 22-88 !
