Robert Trice knew there would eventurally be a night like this. His chronically strained hamstring prevented it last season and Cal State Northridge's run-and-shoot offense and formidable schedule prevented it earlier this season. But there was nothing standing in Trice's way Saturday night. Given the ball, the blocking, and a secondary that could not match his speed, Trice became the Matadors' single-game rushing record-holder with 259 yards in 23 carries in a 39-0 victory over Sonoma State.

In preparation for Cal State Northridge's game against UC Davis, Robert Trice lined up at tailback this week. Coach Bob Burt never imagined Trice would be doing the same thing Saturday night. He figured Jamal Farmer, the transfer from Hawaii, would recover from a left knee bruise and carry the load. Instead, Farmer remained out and Trice, a junior transfer from Porterville College, got the call. He responded with 107 yards in 25 carries, leading the Matadors to a 16-14 win over the Aggies.

At the beginning of the season, tailback Robert Trice stated his goal was to gain 1,500 yards. Two games into a 10-game season Trice has been limited to 141 yards, an average of 70.5 a game, hardly a 1,500-yard pace. Although Trice has shown bursts of speed and the ability to get around end against the San Diego State and Weber State defenses, that explosiveness has been limited to the first half of each game. "I don't know what it is," Trice said.

Bob Burt held out his right hand, palm down, and pointed his index and middle fingers to the floor. Words suddenly failed Cal State Northridge's football coach, so he showed what tailback Robert Trice did on one of his many spectacular runs a week ago during the Matadors' 24-18 victory over Nevada Las Vegas. "They had him pinned and he did one of these," Burt said, wiggling both fingers. " Tssh-tssh . . . Chooo ."

With all the publicity surrounding tailback Jamal Farmer's arrival at Cal State Northridge, few could have named his backup. But now that he has run for more than 100 yards two games in a row, Robert Trice has made a name for himself. Trice is surprised by his performance only because he has been bothered by a nagging tightness in his hamstrings. "I'm nowhere close to my capabilities," Trice said Tuesday after re-injuring himself during practice. "I can get to the hole good, but to turn it on .

Cal State Northridge will play host to Southern Utah tonight at 7 in what has been a high-scoring series. Southern Utah, 1-7-1 and 1-1 in the American West Conference, has averaged 41 points in seven games against the Matadors, but has won only three.

Matador tailback Robert Trice needs 168 yards to move into second place on the school's single-season rushing list.

Cal State Northridge will be without quarterback J.J. O'Laughlin in its American West Conference football game against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo at Mustang Stadium tonight at 7.
