Five days after Heisman Trophy contender Marshall Faulk and his San Diego State teammates began drills, their opening day opponent, Cal State Northridge, will start its own preparations. The Matadors, who will make their Division I-AA debut Sept. 4 against the Aztecs at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, could not afford the dorm fees to open fall camp before 9 a.m. today. As it is, housing is available to only 50 of the 84 players and walk-on freshmen cannot join the team until school starts Aug.

Offensive lineman Brian Hay gave his Cal State Northridge teammates a scare Monday night after he was knocked to the ground during practice. With teammate Tony Simon's leg pinned under him and the two players lying on the ground, team trainers attended to Hay until paramedics took him by ambulance to Granada Hills Community Hospital. Because of his size--Hay is 6-foot-4, 285 pounds--X-ray technicians had difficulty getting clear pictures of Hay's neck and had to X-ray him twice.
