November 10, 1994 | MARK STRODER, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Jonas Lewis was not expecting to make high school football history when he stepped onto the field for Beaumont High against Hemet West Valley High. After all, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound senior running back had been suffering from an upset stomach the entire week leading up to the Oct. 21 Skyline League game. But there was little doubt who was hurting more after Lewis scored 10 touchdowns despite repeatedly going to the sideline to get sick during Beaumont's 69-24 victory.

San Diego State is known more for its passing attack than its ground game. USC is famous, of course, for the four tailbacks who have won the Heisman Trophy. The surprise is that in the past 10 years, San Diego State has had seven 1,000-yard rushers--OK, so three of them were Marshall Faulk--while USC has had three. San Diego State even has one on this year's team. Jonas Lewis ran for 1,021 yards last season as a sophomore and had 72 yards in the Aztecs' 26-14 loss to Wisconsin.

Wearing black on a bittersweet occasion, Jerry Rice gave his longtime fans one last thrill. Rice, who set every significant NFL receiving record in 16 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, returned to 3Com Park in San Francisco on Sunday, starting for the Oakland Raiders in a 20-17 exhibition loss to the 49ers. Rice caught only one pass and played only three series, but he still was the center of attention in a well-played game.

Former USC fullback Kennedy Pola won't only be going against his old school Saturday, he'll be going against his nephew. Pola, a San Diego State assistant coach, is the uncle of Troy Polamalu, a freshman linebacker and defensive back for the Trojans who will get plenty of playing time. "It will be the first time I've actually played against a relative," Polamalu said. "But I'm really happy he's my uncle. He helped me get here.

* Time: 7:30 p.m. * Site: Coliseum * Television: Fox Sports West 2 * Radio: AM 690, 1540, 1170 The Offenses * Youth is the story, with both teams expected to play two quarterbacks and none of the four more experienced than a sophomore. USC sputtered early against Purdue, but freshman quarterback Carson Palmer sparked a comeback with a 42-yard completion. Starter Mike Van Raaphorst looked especially sharp in practice Thursday, and both may have easier jobs today, with star receiver R.

Moses Moreno threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns Sunday and Paul Turner caught six passes for 140 yards and two scores as Colorado State routed mistake-prone Tulsa, 44-8, at Fort Collins, Colo. The game was played before 10,128 fans one day after an October blizzard had forced it to be postponed. The field was slippery, but cleared of the snow that had fallen the previous two days.

Colorado State posted its sixth consecutive victory, routing Fresno State, 41-3, Saturday at Fort Collins, Colo., to clinch at least a tie for the Western Athletic Conference's Pacific Division title. The Rams (8-2, 6-1 in the WAC) haven't lost since losing to Air Force, 24-0, in their conference opener. "We've been playing very steady," Coach Sonny Lubick said, "and this was probably our best performance of the year. We kind of controlled things most of the ballgame."

The ghost of the NCAA "death penalty" will haunt Southern Methodist a little less now that the Mustangs have managed their first winning season since 1986. SMU escaped with a 42-41 victory over Tulsa Saturday in a Western Athletic Conference game at Tulsa, Okla., when the Golden Hurricane bobbled an extra-point attempt with 18 seconds left to play. The Mustangs (6-4, 5-2) have not enjoyed such success since the NCAA-imposed death penalty for the 1987 and '88 seasons.

Freshman Luke Manget, who wanted to attend Georgia but ended up at Georgia Tech, kicked a second-chance, 38-yard field goal in overtime to give 20th-ranked Yellow Jackets an improbable 51-48 victory over the No. 16 Bulldogs Saturday at Atlanta. Manget's first kick was blocked. Georgia (7-4) rallied from a 17-point deficit in the second half but couldn't overcome a disputed fumble by Jasper Sanks at the Georgia Tech two with nine seconds left in regulation.

or was that Hawaii game really more than an exhibition? The Trojans' Palmer-piloted offense and surprisingly strong defense are still looking for a measure of themselves after a 62-7 victory over Hawaii, a team injured tailback Petros Papadakis called "junior college-esque." That was followed by a week off that only proved to quarterback Carson Palmer his Saturdays are best spent playing football, not golf. "I lost 14 balls. That gets expensive," Palmer said.
