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.

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.

Seismologists say Monday's magnitude 4.4 temblor near Westwood could mark the beginning of the end for L.A.'s years-long "earthquake drought. " Typically, they would expect a 4.4-sized earthquake about once a year in the Los Angeles Basin, but that hasn't happened for years. “We don't know if this is the end of the earthquake drought we've had over the last few years, and we won't know for many months,” said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson. FORESHOCK? What the odds are The magnitude 4.4 earthquake that struck near Westwood at 6:25 a.m. is the most significant shake in Southern California since a 5.5 earthquake hit Chino Hills in 2008.

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!"
