An off-game by Steve Young didn't stop the San Francisco 49ers from dominating the St. Louis Rams again. Young had his first multi-interception game in nearly two years but still had three touchdown passes and and Darnell Walker had two first-half interceptions that led to scores as the 49ers defeated the Rams for the 16th consecutive time, 28-10, Sunday. "They made the plays when they had to. We made none," Ram cornerback Todd Lyght said.

The first time Washington tight end Ernie Conwell bench-pressed 515 pounds was nearly the last time he lifted anything. The barbell slipped out of his grip one day last February, slamming into his chest and breaking two ribs. "It felt like a car hit me," said Conwell, a 6-foot-3, 240-pounder. Husky Coach Jim Lambright said, "If an average size guy had 515 pounds fall on his chest, he'd probably be dead."

Tennessee safety Blaine Bishop strained his neck in a scary collision during the third quarter of the Super Bowl and lay motionless on the field for several minutes. Bishop, who jammed his helmet into the back of St. Louis tight end Ernie Conwell on a tackle, did have movement in his arms and legs before he was taken off the field on a stretcher. "I lost feeling in my neck and left arm. But everything is cool now. I'm going to be OK," said Bishop, who was wearing a neck brace after the game.

Mike Bellotti, Oregon's first-year coach, felt fortunate. "Yes, I feel lucky," Bellotti said after the No. 19-ranked Ducks withstood a second-half Washington comeback for a 24-22 victory Saturday. "But I think the good teams make a lot of their luck." John Wales missed two field-goal attempts in the final 3:02 for the No. 15 Huskies. "It's like somebody just stabbed me in my heart," said Rashaan Shehee, who ran for two Washington scores. "They just came into my heart and took everything."

Washington's Rashaan Shehee broke open a tight game with a 48-yard scoring run in the third quarter, and Ikaika Malloe made two big defensive plays in the same period as the Huskies defeated Arizona, 31-17, Saturday night. Shehee's sprint off tackle with 10:46 left in the period gave the Huskies a 24-10 lead, and Arizona couldn't recover against a suddenly potent Washington defense that had been yielding 415 yards per game.

Gus Frerotte has been reinstated as the starting quarterback for the winless Washington Redskins, who play the unbeaten Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in Minneapolis. Frerotte was demoted by Coach Norv Turner after throwing two second-half interceptions that led to a season-opening loss to the New York Giants. He was replaced by Trent Green, who struggled in a 17-12 loss to the previously winless Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday.

Two weeks ago, Rashaan Shehee was on the bench. Now opponents can't keep him out of the end zone. Shehee, making his second collegiate start, ran for 196 yards and three touchdowns and Damon Huard threw for a career-high 295 yards as No. 24 Washington defeated No. 16 Stanford, 38-28, Saturday. Shehee, a sophomore who became the starter when Leon Neal was sidelined because of a sprained toe, had scoring runs of seven, one and 80 yards among his 30 carries.
