UCLA offensive line coach Jim Colletto accepted the same job with the Detroit Lions on Monday, joining a growing list of former assistants to Coach Karl Dorrell. Colletto, who was with the Bruins for only one season, returns to the pro ranks, where he coached with the Baltimore Ravens from 1999-2004 and Oakland Raiders in 2005. "This was a hard decision for me to make," Colletto said in a statement. "Karl [Dorrell] gave me a great opportunity and I am thankful to him for that.

Quarterback Ron Powlus said he will take advantage of his fifth year of eligibility and return to Notre Dame next season. Powlus said he would not have come back if Lou Holtz had returned as coach. Holtz was replaced by Bob Davie, the Irish defensive coordinator. Former Purdue coach Jim Colletto is Notre Dame's new offensive coordinator. "I would have come here under coach Holtz and been a three-year starter. . . . It would have been time for me to move on," he said.

Corey Rogers ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns to pull Purdue even, but teammate Brad Bobich missed a 47-yard field-goal attempt as time ran out and the Boilermakers had to settle for a 35-35 tie with Michigan State in the Big Ten game. After Rogers' second touchdown, a four-yard run with 1:46 to go, made it 35-34, the Boilermakers, 1-1-1 overall and 0-0-1 in the Big Ten, decided to go for a safe extra-point kick instead of a possible two-point conversion.

California tailback Russell White had the reputation. Purdue's young defense had the determination. Purdue came up with four turnovers, built a 38-3 halftime lead and held White to 79 yards Saturday as the Boilermakers cruised past No. 17 California, 41-14. Purdue scored on its first six possessions in its season opener. California (1-1) outgained Purdue, 376-306, but suffered from three intercepted passes and one lost fumble.

Purdue struggled through a first-half drizzle only to drown in a Notre Dame downpour. The rain-softened turf didn't slow Reggie Brooks, who rushed for 205 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as the Irish defeated Purdue, 48-0. "The guys put the holes there," Brooks said. "All I had to do was keep my feet and get the ball upfield." Notre Dame Coach Lou Holtz said Brooks' performance shows he has gained a better sense of direction.

Troubled cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones won't be disciplined by the Dallas Cowboys for a scuffle with his bodyguard that team owner Jerry Jones said resulted from joking banter that got out of hand and was quickly settled. "They were literally kidding each other," Jerry Jones said Thursday. "They were jiving around . . . and all of a sudden one of them starting saying some things, and here you go."

No player represents UCLA's football program under Coach Karl Dorrell better than junior fullback Michael Pitre. An overlooked member of Dorrell's first recruiting class in 2003, Pitre has been a reliable contributor the last two years and has become a quiet leader on this season's team. Pitre -- an honorable-mention All-Pacific 10 Conference selection last season -- is looking to get more work in Dorrell's expanding attack.

The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the 2007 NFL draft is about a month away, and one of UCLA's top juniors, Shannon Tevaga, said he'll make a decision about his future after the Bruins' play Florida State in the Emerald Bowl on Dec. 27. "I really haven't thought about it," said Tevaga, a 6-foot-3, 313-pound, three-year starter at offensive guard. "Me and my parents will talk about it after this last game. My main thought is about the Emerald Bowl and Florida State."
