Bob Toledo took time out from Sunday's practice for the Cotton Bowl to announce a reunion. Nick Aliotti will become UCLA's defensive coordinator after the Bruins play Texas A&M on Thursday. "We're very good friends," Toledo said. "We've been friends for years. We were on the same staff at the University of Oregon." Aliotti, who has coached the St. Louis Rams' linebackers for three seasons, replaces Rocky Long, who is leaving UCLA to become the coach at New Mexico.

These Colorado Rockies don't need to hit a lot of homers and they're proving they can win on the road. Colorado used Jeff Cirillo's sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to score an unearned run off San Diego bullpen ace Trevor Hoffman and beat the Padres, 3-2, Sunday at San Diego. Padre right-hander Woody Williams pitched eight strong innings in his first start after surgery for an aneurysm, but the Rockies ended up with only their fourth win in San Diego in 18 games dating to June 22, 1997.

Calls have come since the season ended, and Rocky Long has said thanks, but no thanks to job feelers, even job offers. "I have a good job," UCLA's defensive coordinator said Tuesday. But the call Monday night from Rudy Davilos, New Mexico's athletic director, was different. "I have an interest because it's my alma mater," Long said about replacing Dennis Franchione, who is leaving the Lobos after the Insight.com Bowl to coach at Texas Christian.
