Thirty-five years after they last played each other in football, Georgia and Boston College will meet tonight (5 o'clock, Ch. 11, 51 and SCORE/FNN) in the Hall of Fame Bowl. Both teams finished 8-3 after recovering from slow starts. No. 17 Georgia won five of its last six regular-season games, while unranked Boston College won its last seven games. The game offers a contrast of styles. Boston College quarterback Shawn Halloran passed for 2,090 yards and 17 touchdowns, with 6 interceptions.

Shawn Halloran's five-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Martin with 32 seconds remaining Tuesday night gave Boston College a 27-24 victory over 17th-ranked Georgia in the Hall of Fame Bowl football game. The game-winning throw capped a 12-play, 76-yard drive kept alive when Georgia was called for a pass interference penalty. The infraction gave Boston College a first down at the Georgia 17-yard line with 51 seconds left.

The Colleges It's always sad to see once great teams on the decline. Who would have thought that Boston College (0-1) and Georgia (0-1) would still be winless at this point in the season? And leading the nation in defeats as well as tied for the Bottom Ten lead? Sad but true. BC fell, 14-28, to BYU, whose program has improved since it dropped the requirement that only descendants of Brigham Young could play on its athletic teams. Georgia, meanwhile, came through with a 16-20 loss to Alabumble.

For Georgia's often-criticized defensive secondary, Saturday was a day of redemption. Ridiculed in a local newspaper as a unit that couldn't cover their mouths when they coughed, they limited Florida to 162 yards passing in No. 10-ranked Georgia's 23-10 victory over the No. 17 Gators.

Coach Vince Dooley of 14th-ranked Georgia sounded like a man who had just lost, rather than one who had gained his 191st coaching victory. "They dominated the game," Dooley said Saturday night after the Bulldogs struggled to a 30-16 victory over Georgia Tech. "They totally outplayed us." The Bulldogs, 18-point favorites, didn't put the game on ice until freshman Rodney Hampton ended the scoring on a 33-yard run with 7:22 remaining.
