For the New Orleans Saints, it wasn't only the heat that ruined football practice in Louisiana each summer. It wasn't even the humidity. "It was the isolation," Saint President Jim Finks recalls. "We were 500 miles from the nearest NFL team. We couldn't get anybody to come down and scrimmage us." And so, last year, the Saints moved their summer training camp from Hammond, La., to La Crosse, Wis. This year, the Kansas City Chiefs closed down another secluded pro camp in Liberty, Mo.

Bruce Pearl's eyes welled up and his throat tightened the moment he heard Boston College's fight song. Nothing makes him cry quicker than "For Boston." But a few hours later, Wisconsin Milwaukee's coach, a Boston College graduate and former assistant who stuffed himself inside the BC eagle's mascot suit for a postseason game in 1981, clapped his hands to another sentimental tune -- one without a title. "It's just called the UWM fight song," said a Milwaukee band member, showing the sheet music.

Michael Finley scored 18 points and No. 18 Wisconsin remained unbeaten by defeating Eastern Michigan, 94-68, Monday night at Madison, Wis.

Freshman center Rashard Griffith of Wisconsin scored all 13 of his points in the first half and grabbed nine rebounds. No.

Ron Dayne, the bruising Wisconsin senior tailback who turned hard knocks off the field into hard knocks on it, won the Heisman Trophy at ceremonies held Saturday at New York's Downtown Athletic Club. Victory was as predictable as a Dayne run: a straight-forward runaway. Dayne won with 2,042 votes, followed by Georgia Tech quarterback Joe Hamilton with 994, Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Vick, 319, Purdue quarterback Drew Brees, 308, and Marshall quarterback Chad Pennington with 247.

Craig Greene has a reputation of being in the right spot, so it was no surprise that when a long rebound went up with three seconds to go against Cal State Northridge on Thursday night, the Wisconsin-Milwaukee forward was there to tip it back toward the rim. As usual, it went in. Greene's tip of Marc Mitchell's miss gave Wisconsin-Milwaukee a 75-74 victory over Northridge in a nonconference game that was key to the Panthers' hopes of an NCAA tournament invitation.

Wisconsin used Brent Moss' seventh consecutive 100-yard rushing game and a key defensive stop in the final minutes Saturday to beat Michigan, 13-10, and stay in the running for the Rose Bowl. "It was a huge win, the program has turned around," Wisconsin quarterback Darrell Bevell said. "We wanted to make sure we got this one." Wisconsin (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) next will play third-ranked Ohio State, also at Camp Randall Stadium, on Saturday.

Penn State was a confused team Saturday night. And, for the first time in nearly two years, it was also a loser. Darrell Bevell completed 18 of 22 passes and threw for two touchdowns as Wisconsin upset the sixth-ranked Nittany Lions, 17-9. Joe Paterno made a couple coaching bungles, including forgetting what down it was late in the first half, costing Penn State, 3-1 overall and 0-1 in the Big Ten, a chance to get three points.

The Colleges Wisconsin's recent thrashing by Western Michigan has prompted the Mid-American Conference to try to get out of its bowl contract with the lowly Big Ten. "We're tired of beating those stiffs year after year," one big MAC official said, noting that the Badgers have also been drubbed by Northern Illinois. "We want a tougher conference, like the Mid-Atlantic." The Big Ten, in fact, is 7-15 overall, explaining its merger with the Bottom Ten.
