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.

Four hikers were stranded between two rain-swollen waterways in Malibu Creek State Park on Saturday night as rescuers attempted to reach them. Because of the stormy weather, a helicopter could not access the area, which is near the 1900 block of Las Virgenes Road between a rock pool and a creek, said Michael Pittman, a supervising dispatcher for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The hikers, who called for help about 7 p.m., are not in danger, but a search-and-rescue team was expected to take four or five hours to bring them out of the canyon.

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.

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.

Next time, maybe Detroit Lion Coach Bobby Ross should go for the sure one, not the risky two. After a decision to go for a two-point conversion came back to haunt the Lions, the Arizona Cardinals held on for a 23-19 victory Sunday to end the Lions' winning streak at four. "I decided to go for two points because I felt we were going to play it to win it. I thought it through. It wasn't a spontaneous decision," Ross said.

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.
