Jerome Oliver rushed for 220 yards and scored two touchdowns Saturday night to lead Fresno State to a 24-14 victory over Oregon State. Oliver, replacing injured tailback Michael Pittman, made his first collegiate start and set a Fresno State record with 37 carries, breaking the old mark of 34 shared by three others. The 220 yards was third-best in school history. Fresno State (2-2), which has won its last 12 home games, took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on a one-yard run by Sal Mejico.

Tony Graziani's third touchdown pass of the game came in overtime as Oregon managed a 30-27 nonconference victory over Fresno State Saturday night. A 30-yard field goal by Oregon's Joshua Smith tied the score at 24-24 and sent the game into overtime, something new in college football this season. Fresno, on its first possession of the overtime, got a 35-yard field goal from Armen Torigian. But Oregon got a touchdown on a 25-yard pass play to Justin Wilcox to pull out the victory.

Jake Plummer brought happy memories back to Arizona. The slender quarterback, criticized as a one-year wonder after taking the Cardinals to the playoffs in 1998 and then flopping last year when he had a hand injury, passed the Cardinals to a 32-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night. Plummer passed to David Boston for 63 yards on the Cardinals' last possession--a gain to the Dallas 22.

Jake Plummer is up to his old tricks. After his three first-quarter interceptions helped the Philadelphia Eagles take a 21-point lead, Plummer--the comeback artist--led the Arizona Cardinals to a 25-24 victory Sunday, with Chris Jacke making a 31-yard field goal as time ran out. "With 12 minutes left, I don't think I had to say it, but I did anyway. I said, 'We're down, but we're still in it,' " Plummer said. Then he walked down the benches telling his teammates, "You gotta believe!"

For the first time, Carnell "Cadillac" Williams was controlled this season by a defense that stacked the line of scrimmage, but Tampa Bay receivers picked up the slack to lift the Buccaneers to a 17-13 victory over the Detroit Lions Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. Joey Galloway had seven catches for a career-high 166 yards and Michael Pittman added six receptions for 96 yards as Tampa Bay recorded its first 4-0 start since 1997.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tied several franchise records for success and maintained a share of the NFL's best record. Barely. Martin Gramatica's 38-yard field goal with 3:04 left was decisive for the Buccaneers in a 23-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday as an expected blowout turned into a close battle.

Their offense didn't produce a touchdown, yet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers still found plenty of ways to score. The Baltimore Ravens wish they could be so fortunate. Karl Williams returned a punt 56 yards for a touchdown and Derrick Brooks scored on a 97-yard interception return as Tampa Bay defeated Baltimore, 25-0, Sunday. Coach Jon Gruden was lured from Oakland to bring some firepower to the Tampa Bay offense, but his first victory with the Buccaneers came courtesy of defense and special teams.
