For $250 and a picture of your mate, the curious can browse through Test-A-Mate's photo album of attractive women and men and select the decoy they think their companion will go for.

So what if college officials have rejected proposals for a Bottom Ten Bowl game that would be played in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.? Just Saturday, two winless non-powers collided in a matchup that was almost as good, or bad. The result, based on accounts from the few fans who admitted attending, was a well-earned 27-29 loss for No. 1 Eastern Michigan (0-7) against No. 9 Ball State (1-7). And there's more to come: No. 2 Western Kentucky (0-7) stumbles into No. 6 North Texas (1-6)

My Heisman Trophy vote this week goes to James Brown. With its star quarterback, Texas was, according to the Associated Press poll, the nation's 11th best team. Without him, well, you saw what happened to the Longhorns on Saturday against UCLA. Brown would have made a difference. The Longhorns would have displayed more poise, picked up more blitzes, committed fewer turnovers, established the running game and lost by only 56-3. The Bruins were that good.

I should know by now that you can't fall asleep before a Bruin-Trojan football game thinking you already know which team is going to win. A little over three weeks ago I had it all figured out. See what I mean? The Trojans go into this game as a team that no one expected would even be in the ballgame, so they can let it all hang out. Yet, they may be feeling a little pressure in that they have to win to get a bowl bid. The Bruin season seems to be going south. Yet, they've lost the last three games to pretty strong teams.

Grant High catcher Manny Toledo spent another Tuesday night sitting at home doing his version of crochet, figuring a stitch in time will save the Grant nine. For at least the third time this season, Toledo had to spend a few minutes restitching the webbing in his mitt after a Javier Delahoya fastball once again blew a hole in it. "He can do that," said Toledo, whose mitt was temporarily wrecked by Delahoya in the fourth inning of Tuesday's game against Poly. "This will be something like the third time I've fixed it. He does it like it's nothing."

Regarding Bill King's being insulted out of being the voice of the Raiders, let me just say in the words probably spoken by the man himself at the thought of a 50%-plus pay cut: "Holy Toledo!" BILL LOZIER Pasadena

Holy Toledo, Batman, the Trojans may not be Supermen after all. ROBERT H. WILLIAMS Monterey Park So you think the NCAA will suspend those four USC football players who rescued Danielle Dauenhauer for impersonating firemen? Or even worse, if the USC players had been wearing sneakers that they bought at a special discount, they'd still be suspended. TOM SCARPELLI Northridge

A group of comic book artists and writers has succeeded in doing what some of the most fiendish minds of the century--including Penguin, Riddler and Catwoman--have failed to accomplish. They have killed off Batman's right-hand man, Robin, the younger half of the 48-year-old crime fighting team known to readers around the world as the "Dynamic Duo." "Holy Toledo!" as Robin might say. Robin is killed off in next week's issue of Batman comics, blown to bits--BAM!

Bill King, one of the Raiders' last links to their days in Oakland, might not be returning as the team's play-by-play announcer. Nederlander Sports Marketing, which recently acquired the Raiders' radio rights, offered King, who has been with the team since 1966, a salary of about $50,000, which, a source said, is less than half of what he made last season. King rejected the offer. "I really don't want to say much about it," King said Thursday night. "I'd sure like to come back.
