The Heisman? The Heisman ? Jon Vaughn needs somebody to reassure him that he's going to start for Michigan next week. Michigan's coach can't even make his own mouth describe Jon Vaughn as Michigan's best running back, much less America's. Michigan's players say most anybody could run this way behind this blocking, not just Jon Vaughn. Yeah, but. . . . Two games, 489 yards? Against Notre Dame and UCLA? Anybody could do this?

Jon Vaughn, a forgotten man in Seattle's offense, had a day the Pittsburgh Steelers wanted to forget. Vaughn, who had only six carries this season going into Sunday's game, replaced an ailing Chris Warren and had a career-best 131-yard performance in 26 carries in a 16-6 victory over the Steelers. John L. Williams had 86 yards in 14 carries as the Seahawks ran for 267 yards against the NFL's No. 1 rushing defense.

This time, the New York Jets survived, but barely. The Jets, who let a game against previously winless Indianapolis get away last week, held on for a 28-21 victory over the New England Patriots Sunday when Kyle Clifton tackled Jon Vaughn on the one-yard-line as time ran out. "It was an unbelievable game," Clifton said. "I've been in the league eight years, and I thought I'd seen everything. But this game was something different. "I was nervous because of Vaughn's success at running outside."

Michigan tailback Jon Vaughn ran into the record book Saturday. Unfortunately, for UCLA, it was the opponents' section. Vaughn, a 200-pound sophomore with speed and power, gained 288 yards and scored three touchdowns as the Wolverines overpowered the Bruins, 38-15. USC's Marcus Allen held the previous UCLA opponent's rushing record of 219 yards set in 1981.

Wide receiver Haywood Jeffires of the Houston Oilers will sit out Saturday's exhibition game against the Seattle Seahawks because of an irregular heartbeat, but expects to return for the regular season. Jeffires' heart rate rose to about 170 beats per minute during Wednesday's workout and led to a series of tests that revealed an atrial fibrillation, the Oilers said. . . .

San Diego State running back Marshall Faulk says he isn't doing anything special for today's game against UCLA. "I don't really look at them as a team I get pumped up to play," he said. "I play my best every time." The opponents' rushing record against UCLA was set last season by Jon Vaughn of Michigan, who gained 288 yards. Faulk broke an NCAA rushing record two weeks ago against Pacific when he ran for 386 yards. . . .

Quarterback Scott Zolak felt so much emotion he forgot about the pressure. Zolak, making his first NFL start, drove the previously winless New England Patriots to the tying and winning field goals by Charlie Baumann Sunday, the second one sending the Indianapolis Colts to a 37-34 overtime defeat. "Words can't describe it," said Zolak, who passed for 261 yards and two touchdowns starting in place of injured Hugh Millen and Tommy Hodson.

All Tom Tupa needed was a chance to prove he could be a starting quarterback in the NFL. Tupa, shaking off the stigma of being a backup, passed for a career-high 312 yards and three touchdowns Sunday as the Phoenix Cardinals beat the New England Patriots, 24-10. "It takes a great quarterback to have a chance in the NFL, and we have a chance," Cardinal Coach Joe Bugel said. Tupa inherited the starting job in the preseason when Timm Rosenbach was lost because of a knee injury.

CHESS OLYMPIAD The 31st Chess Olympiad, the mammoth team tournament conducted every two years by the World Chess Federation (FIDE), has begun in Moscow. Chess news, though, has been overshadowed by reports of crime. Several chess players, including Americans Alexander Shabalov and Alex Yermolinsky, have been robbed. As host country, Russia gets to field two teams. Its second team, composed of teen-age stars, leads the tournament after seven rounds with 19 1/2-8 1/2.
