Mike Price is low key when he talks about Ryan Leaf, like a father who doesn't want to bore the lodge meeting with exploits of his son, but still wants the brethren to know that the kid is special.

Ryan Leaf, mentioned often as a Heisman Trophy contender, played like one and then looked like one on Saturday at Pullman, Wash.

The secret of Michigan's season-long defensive superiority is out. It's not the unit's aggressiveness that has made it the country's best, or the athleticism and superb instincts of Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson. It's the defensive players' ritual of convening in a darkened meeting room two days before each game to join hands and recite from memory a poem titled, "The Law of the Jungle." Don't knock it. The Wolverine defense gave up only 8.9 points and 206.9 yards a game.

There were more flags than at the United Nations. There was a malfunctioning scoreboard that kept going blank. There was even a zany two-point conversion. And, oh yes, there was a football game in there somewhere. The outcome was a victory for Valley College over West L.A., 27-8, in a Western State Conference South Division game Saturday afternoon.

California's dream season came to a cold, hard end Saturday night and the Golden Bears can thank Washington State running back Michael Black and a late fumble by quarterback Pat Barnes for their first loss of the season. Black, a standout at Dorsey High and West Los Angeles College, rushed for a career-high 214 yards in 25 carries, but the Cougars needed a fumble by Barnes at the Washington State goal line to upset Cal, 21-18, before a crowd of 27,182.
