They worked on the play several times in practice last week and it paid off Saturday. Cal State Northridge pulled off a pooch kickoff late in the third quarter, after Marcus Brady combined with Anthony Ramos on a 23-yard pass play for the final score in the Matadors' 26-10 Big Sky Conference victory at Weber State. Manny Marquez kicked to the right sideline, where Gil Rodriguez snagged the free ball out of the air at the Weber State 37.

USC's Johnnie Morton, the Pacific 10 Conference's leading receiver, is still recovering from a flu-like illness that nearly kept him out of Saturday's 22-17 victory over Washington. Morton is expected to play Saturday against UCLA. "That was his best performance of the season," Coach John Robinson said Monday. "We left it up to him Saturday. I told him: 'If you feel bad, stay in bed at the hotel. It's your call.' He wanted to play. He was even worse Sunday, but he's better today (Monday)."

Cal State Northridge is headed to the Big West Conference in 2001, a move applauded across campus. But before the Matadors depart, they'll play lame duck in the Big Sky Conference. "That's what scares me," Bobby Braswell, men's basketball coach, said with a laugh. Braswell and football Coach Jeff Kearin aren't counting on getting many breaks with the game officials. On the road in the Big Sky, the Matadors, in black uniforms, are not mistaken for the good guys.

It's always nice to have a starting quarterback. Just ask Los Angeles Loyola. With starter Henry Burge turning in an efficient performance, and Santa Ana Mater Dei struggling with its backup, Loyola upset the fourth-seeded Monarchs, 14-0, Friday at East Los Angeles College. It was an ugly way to win a Southern Section Division I semifinal, but gets Loyola to the title game for the first time since 2002.

Athletes at Cal State Northridge will no longer have to meet higher academic standards than the general student body to retain their eligibility. The athletic department's across-the-board 2.0 grade-point average requirement has been abolished by Ron Kopita, the vice president in charge of student affairs. Instead, eligibility will be determined on a sliding scale that combines university-wide minimum GPAs and those of the Big Sky Conference. The new minimum required GPA is 1.

Coach Jeff Kearin of Cal State Northridge said he is sorting out the football team's video blooper.

The players portrayed NFL legends in the video, televised during a pregame show. Each received $100 for about 12 hours of work at the Coliseum. "We were doing it to represent the university and to have fun," said Dwan Vance, a senior defensive back.
