Ron Powlus is still the starter, but his days of being Notre Dame's only quarterback are over. A day after saying he needed to reevaluate the quarterback job, Coach Bob Davie said that junior backup Jarious Jackson will get more playing time, starting with Saturday's home game against Boston College. "Ron still gives us the best chance to win, but if our offense bogs down, we've got to find a solution for that," Davie said. "We need to find out if Jarious Jackson is an option for us.

Bernie Lincicome in the Chicago Tribune: "The NBA playoffs do not hold the same fascination these days, rather like being an in-law at a family reunion. You know the faces, you know the foibles, but you have to make an effort to care. "So when the Lakers get the big prize sometime in June, we shall try to feel good for the Zen master, Phil Jackson, for he then shall be certifiably a great coach and not just the quirky conductor of the Michael Jordan Express.

Quarterback Jarious Jackson, who injured his right knee five weeks ago, might play against Georgia Tech. Jackson has been eased back into Notre Dame's preparations the past two weeks. He said he has no fear of going out against the Yellow Jackets and taking his first hit in more than a month or exposing himself while running the option, a staple in the running game for Notre Dame. "I'll do whatever they call. Whatever they call, I'm going to run," Jackson said.

When it mattered, when it was all on the line, Jarious Jackson did what he had to do. After struggling most of the game, Jackson passed to Jay Johnson for a 16-yard touchdown with 36 seconds left to give Notre Dame a 28-24 victory over Navy Saturday and extend its NCAA-record winning streak over the Midshipmen to 36 games. "Jarious struggled today throwing the football," Notre Dame Coach Bob Davie said. "Then he comes back late in the game and makes the throw to win. . . . He finds a way.

Notre Dame quarterback Jarious Jackson went through practice without any problems Saturday, but Coach Bob Davie said it was too soon to tell if he would be able to play in the Gator Bowl. "He ran and threw, did everything we asked," Davie said. "Tomorrow will be more telling. We'll be in full pads, there will be more contact. And we'll know more as the week progresses." Both the No. 17 Irish (9-2) and No. 12 Georgia Tech (9-2) arrived in Jacksonville, Fla., and went through light workouts.

There is one big difference between the Notre Dame team USC shut out last year at the Coliseum and the one the Trojans will play Saturday in South Bend, Ind. Jarious Jackson. Without him last season, Notre Dame didn't complete a pass against the Trojans until the third quarter, with two woefully inexperienced quarterbacks trying to fill in for the injured starter.

The boos began as soon as Notre Dame fans saw Ron Powlus trotting onto the field in the fourth quarter against USC. The fans didn't want him. They wanted his backup, Jarious Jackson. Now it looks as if they might get their wish. With the Irish 2-5, Coach Bob Davie said Sunday it might be time for a change. "He's not playing like a quarterback on a 2-5 team," Davie said.

1 The fired-up Trojans run onto the field at Notre Dame Stadium, kneel as if in prayer in the end zone, watch R. Jay Soward dance with the cheerleaders--and then jump to a 21-0 lead. * 2 With USC's 21-point lead down to 24-10, USC quarterback Mike Van Raaphorst drops back to pass but is hit by a blitzing Ron Israel and fumbles. Anthony Denman returns ball to the USC 36 before Van Raaphorst tackles him. Notre Dame scores to cut the lead to 24-16.

Notre Dame just wasn't Notre Dame the first few games this season. Mental mistakes. A nonexistent rushing game. Poor clock management. The Irish just seemed unorganized and lethargic as they opened 1-3, but now it looks like they're back. And they have Jarious Jackson to thank for it. Jackson threw for four touchdowns, tying a school record, and ran for a career-best 48 yards to score another as Notre Dame beat Arizona State, 48-17, Saturday.

Different setting, same old story. And this time the final score was as lopsided as the rivalry itself. Autry Denson became Notre Dame's career rushing leader and Jarious Jackson completed his first 12 passes as the 12th-ranked Fighting Irish defeated Navy for the 35th consecutive time, 30-0, on Saturday. It was the first college football game at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium, but the result wasn't any different than the previous 34 in this one-sided competition.
