GAME OF THE DAY Miami (8-0) at Pitt (4-3-1) TV: Channels 7 and 10, 12:30 p.m. PST. A lot of people tabbed this game as upset material. But now that Pitt is without quarterback John Congemi, the game loses some mystery. Anyway, top-ranked Miami hasn't appeared too vulnerable to underdogs; it's an equal opportunity destroyer. Hurricane quarterback Vinny Testaverde continues to enhance his own prestige, meanwhile. Last week, he played with a bum foot and completed 10 of his last 11 passes.

When Dick Williams was managing the Montreal Expos, there was a game against the Philadelphia Phillies in which he ordered an intentional walk to Bake McBride with runners on second and third. Mike Schmidt then hit a single to win the game for the Phillies. Defending his strategy afterward, Williams said: "I don't care if Jesus Christ was coming up, I was going to walk McBride." Asked a reporter: "What if Babe Ruth was coming up?" Said Williams, after a pause: "I don't know about Babe Ruth."

With 98 wins in the regular season, Detroit Manager Sparky Anderson moved ahead of Fred Clarke into 11th place among baseball's winningest managers. His goal is to pass John McGraw for second place. He needs 1,229 wins to catch McGraw, who had 2,840. "If I stay healthy, I'll pass him," Anderson said, guessing it would take him 15 years. "I'm only 53. McGraw's the only one I want." Connie Mack holds the record with 3,776 wins. "Mack don't count," Anderson said.

How bad are things at Columbia? When a man claiming to be a Buddhist priest telephoned Lion football coach Larry McElreavy last season and offered chants that would lead to victories, McElreavy chanted along. When a man from Maryland called and suggested an offense, saying he had put in the wing-T for Ara Parseghian at Notre Dame, McElreavy listened. When the alumni came up with ideas for plays, McElreavy thought them over.
