The forecast is for rain in Oregon. Big deal. A tailgate party in Oregon involves three people: one to bring the food, another to bring the beer and the third to bring the tent. But there's no tent over Autzen Stadium in Eugene, where UCLA and Oregon play today. "I think that rain tends to favor the team that runs the ball best," Oregon Coach Mike Bellotti said. "UCLA's big, experienced offensive line and Skip Hicks should make them the better running team."

Federal forester Steve Bear stood on a fire-stripped slope of the San Gabriel Mountains last week, trying to find just one pine sapling, any sapling, pushing through the bright green bedspread of vegetation. It would give him hope after a year of disappointment. Last April, U.S. Forest Service crews planted nearly a million pine and fir trees to try to reclaim land scorched clean by the devastating Station fire. Most of them shriveled up and died within months, as skeptics had predicted.

Gusting Santa Ana winds blew over big rigs, whipped up dust storms and forced the closure of a stretch of heavily traveled Interstate 15 near Fontana in both directions Thursday. Gusts hit 78 mph at Fremont Canyon in the Santa Ana Mountains between Orange and Riverside counties and 54 mph in Devore near the El Cajon Pass, the National Weather Service reported.

Memo to Georgia: The road, this week, does not lead back to you. It leads to Oregon. Not generally considered the cradle of anything except rain, Oregon is suddenly a cross-legged guru from which all college football eminence flows. No. 6 California plays at No. 11 Oregon in Eugene in a marquee game being televised by ABC and announced by former Oregon quarterback Dan Fouts.

The game was close until Anthony Davis got his hands on the football for the first time. That was the opening kickoff, and after Davis had gone 97 yards in 13 seconds, USC had a 7-0 lead over Notre Dame during the 1972 game in the Coliseum. The game was close again after the Fighting Irish had pulled to within 25-23 midway in the third quarter. A.D. time once again. This time it was a 96-yard kickoff return that broke the spirit of Coach Ara Parseghian's Notre Dame team.

The woman of a thousand faces swung open the door of her sun-dappled Encino home. It appeared to be Jean Smart, all right--blond, 5-foot-10, bright smile that reminded you of some dairy queen on the cover of an outdoor magazine. But if you've followed Smart's blinding array of TV movie personas, you can never be sure who the real Jean Smart is.
