GREEN BAY PACKERS Sept. 9, 10 a.m. Lambeau Field 1989 record: 10-6. Series record: Rams lead series, 38-22-1. Key offensive starter: Quarterback Don Majkowski, who still was holding out for a better contract as of earlier this week, was the trigger man who that brought the Pack back in 1989. Green Bay posted its their best record since 1972 and it included a number of dramatic--some would say fortunate--victories that hinged on some desperate fourth-and-long plays.

Reggie Cobb, the top rusher for sixth-ranked Tennessee, was kicked off the team Thursday by Coach Johnny Majors for an unspecified violation of team rules. Majors did not say what the violation was, but that the dismissal is permanent. "I regret that action is necessary," Majors said. "But our rules are for the welfare of the team and the total university. They must be obeyed." Cobb, a junior from Knoxville, was suspended by Majors in February for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Junior tailback Reggie Cobb rushed for 225 yards in 22 carries, including a 79-yard touchdown run, to lead 12th-ranked Tennessee to a 21-14 upset victory over fourth-ranked Auburn Saturday in a rainy Southeastern Conference game. "I don't think people are yet giving us credit for being a good team, but each game we should be convincing them," Cobb said. Cobb became the first back to reach the 100-mark on Auburn's defense in 25 regular-season games.

Stacey Simmons returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown and caught a 39-yard scoring pass from Kerwin Bell as Florida beat Kentucky, 27-14, Saturday at Gainesville, Fla.

Bowl bids will be extended next Saturday. Kentucky fell to 5-5 and 1-4.
