After serving an apprenticeship under Coach Bill Walsh, who built the San Francisco 49ers into the NFL's team of the 1980s, Dennis Green installed the 49ers' quick-strike passing attack when he took over as Stanford football coach last season. Green has taught his team well. Cardinal quarterback Jason Palumbis was as efficient as 49er quarterback Joe Montana, and split end Ed McCaffrey was as explosive as 49er wide receiver Jerry Rice in the first quarter of Saturday's game against USC.

Jason Palumbis, who was Stanford's starting quarterback when the 1988 season ended but did not throw a pass last year, has regained the starting job. On Wednesday, the coaching staff named Palumbis, a junior, the winner of a spring practice, three-way competition. The other quarterback candidates were Steve Smith, who started several games last year, and freshman John Lynch. Palumbis underwent surgery in December to correct a shoulder problem which had affected his throwing.

Stanford University, one of two choices for Todd Marinovich, Capistrano Valley High School quarterback, has received an oral commitment from a top Louisiana high school quarterback. Steve Smith from Covington High School near New Orleans has announced that he will sign a letter of intent to play at Stanford. Marinovich, the national prep career passing leader, said earlier this week that he had narrowed his choices to Stanford and USC.

Jerome Bettis ran for three touchdowns and caught a pass for another as No. 8 Notre Dame quashed any notion of an upset with a 42-26 victory over Stanford Saturday night. The victory settled a year-old score for the Fighting Irish, toppled from a No. 1 ranking in 1990 when upset, 36-31, by Stanford at South Bend, Ind. The Cardinal (1-3) had fought back to within 28-14 on Jason Palumbis' two-yard sneak for a touchdown with 7:32 remaining in the third quarter.

He was 11 for 13 for 110 yards as the Cardinal took a 14-10 halftime lead.

If San Jose State quarterback Ralph Martini would have impressed Stanford admissions officers the way he did the school's football coaches, the Cardinal may have been on the other end of a 29-23 loss to the Spartans. "BYU and San Jose State recruited me, and I really wanted to come to Stanford, but my SAT scores weren't good enough," said Martini, whose football scores--four touchdown passes and another two-point conversion pass--were more than enough for a San Jose victory Saturday.

It's known simply as The Play, Cal's five-lateral kickoff return for a touchdown through the Stanford band, which gave the Golden Bears a 25-20 victory over Stanford in 1982. While Stanford's dramatic 27-25 win in Saturday's 93rd Big Game, which came on John Hopkins' 39-yard field goal as time expired, wasn't as bizarre, it was almost as absurd. "I remember The Play and I guess you could call this The Play II," said Stanford running back Glyn Milburn, who rushed for 196 yards and one touchdown.

Doug Pfaff kicked a 22-yard field goal with 5 seconds left Saturday to give Arizona a 16-13 victory over Washington in a Pacific 10 Conference game at Seattle. The game-winning field goal was set up when Scott Geyer rushed in and caused Washington quarterback Cary Conklin to fumble as he was passing. Nose guard Dana Wells fell on the ball on the Washington 6 with 55 seconds left. Arizona kicked the field goal after running down the clock with two quarterback sneaks up the middle by Ron Veal.
