John Stocco 1 threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score in his first start for No. 21 Wisconsin, which beat Central 1 Florida, 34-6, Saturday. Anthony Davis rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown for the Badgers but left late in the first half after taking a hard hit at the end of a 21-yard run. The school didn't announce details of Davis' injury.

Davis missed five full games last year because of ankle injuries, and the Badgers are counting on his return to health, especially with 2003 leading rusher Dwayne Smith out because of a recently discovered heart disorder. Before getting hurt, Davis moved into second place on the school's all-time rushing list behind Ron Dayne, college football's career rushing leader. Stocco, a sophomore who replaced the graduated Jim Sorgi (Fraser), threw touchdown passes of 16 and 52 yards in the Badgers' biggest victory in an opener since beating Murray State, 49-10, in 1999. UCF Coach George O'Leary missed the game to attend his mother's funeral in New York. O'Leary is returning to the college ranks for the first time since a falsely inflated resume ended his job at Notre Dame after one week in 2001.

Special-teams coordinator and linebackers coach Dave Huxtable assumed coaching responsibilities for the Knights. The Big Ten's new instant replay system had mixed results and drew the ire of Wisconsin Coach Barry Alvarez and a crowd of 82,116 at renovated Camp Randall Stadium. Dontez Sanders' 50-yard fumble return for a touchdown was called back to midfield when the replay official ruled Sanders had a knee down when quarterback Steven Moffett's fumble bounced into his hands. Then, on the long run that ended with Davis leaving the game, the referee announced a review by the replay official had found that Davis stepped out of bounds at the Central Florida 41 instead of the 28. Upon further review, he corrected the call to show Davis stepped out at the 29.

Five plays later, Stocco hit Jonathan Orr with a 16-yard touchdown pass that probably should have been inbounds as he caught the pass on a the fourth quarter. Cribbs was suspended after being full sprint.

Gerstner The Detroit News DETROIT Howard senior cprnerback Ronald Bartell wanted to make a good impression for his VDetroit homecoming. Bartell certainly did that, picking off a pass in dramatic fashion in the first quarter. He speared a floating pass at Howard's stopping an early drive. But things didn't go smoothly for Bartell in Howard's 27-12 loss to Alabama State in the Ford Detroit Football Classic Bartell was beaten in one-on-one coverage by sophomore wide receiver Lorenzo Hoffmann in the fourth. Both went up for the ball thrown to the right side of the goal line.

The shorter Bartell lost, as Hoffmann out-jumped him for the touchdown. Bartell took the loss personally, laying on the goal line, spread-eagle, for a few seconds. Playing well in Detroit fulfilled a small dream for Bartell. He transferred last season from Central Michigan to Howard, in hopes of finding himself. The move wasn't easy, but it has paid off for Bartell.

"I missed my teammates at Central so much, I called them every day and I still talk to them a lot," Bartell said. "But I knew I couldn't stay at Central. The town was too small, there weren't enough opportunities for me to develop. "I had to go, and I felt like Howard was the perfect fit." Coming home There are four other players with nized by the replay official the coaches can't call for a review like they can in the NFL The Big Ten is the first conference to use instant replay to review officials' calls. The NCAA authorized the conference to use video replay to correct officiating mistakes on a one-year trial basis.

Orr's TD gave the Badgers a 17-3 lead with 1:35 left before halftime, and they weren't done. Jim Leonhard's 38-yard punt return with 30 seconds remaining set up Mike Allen's 29-yard field goal as the half expired, putting Wisconsin ahead 20-3. Stocco's 2-yard keeper in the third quarter made it 27-3 and his 52-yard pass to tight end Owen Daniels down the left sideline made it 34-6 in the fourth quarter. (At) No. 19 Iowa 39, Kent State 7: Drew Tate threw for two touchdowns in his first start.

The Hawkeyes held the Golden Flashes to 110 total yards and minus-13 yards rushing. Kent State, playing without suspended quarterback Joshua Cribbs, crossed midfield once, late in the third quarter.

"He just got out of the junior-senior prom, for goodness sake. "He made one mistake. But for a true freshman, what I'm really impressed with is how he handled all the communication issues." Henne got the start after redshirt sophomore Matt Gutierrez experienced soreness in his throwing shoulder during practice earlier in the week. Gutierrez was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. After practice Thursday, Carr went to Henne with the news he'd be the starter provided he could answer one ques- tion.

Carr asked Henne if he thought he was up to the job. "I told him, Henne said, laughing. Then he went out and proved it on a hot, humid afternoon that saw Michigan's defense steal the show, creating seven turnovers, including five interceptions. Ernest Shazor's 88-yard interception return for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter made it 30-10 and sealed the victory for the Wolverines. Five of Michigan's offensive scoring drives went less than 20 yards, set up by Miami turnovers.

"I think it was just us beating our-' selves," Miami quarterback Josh Betts said. "They're a good team, but we made them look a lot better than they Michigan's defense also stifled the Miami running game, limiting tailback Luke Clemens to 32 yards on 13 carries. The Wolverines' David Underwood, also getting his first start in the U-M backfield, seemed hesitant and struggled, gaining just 6t yards on 22 carries. He did score the Wolverines' first two touchdowns each from yard out to build a 17-0 lead. Henne then found Braylon Edwards on a roll-out play for a 20-yard touchdown pass that made it 24-0 with 6:47 remaining in the third quarter.

After-1 ward, Edwards was one of many team-" mates singing Henne's praises. "He's a special kind of person, a guy jl you automatically have faith in," said Edwards, who finished with six catches for 91 yards and two touchdowns.
