Fresno State's Ron Cox does not show much respect to offensive linemen. They try to keep him from the quarterback, but he goes right on past them. Already this season, he has 14 sacks, enough to make it hard to pick a personal favorite. "That's a good question," Cox said. "I've had so many." But Zelma Hunt is someone who can keep Cox in line. When the 74-year-old proprietor of Hunt's Cafe in Fresno tells Cox to hop-to, she gets a response.

A year after underclassman Barry Sanders made himself available for the NFL draft, the league cleared 22 more juniors Thursday for the 1990 draft. Pro scouts rate perhaps 10 of them as first-round picks, making this potentially the deepest draft since 1983, when John Elway, Jim Kelly, Dan Marino and Eric Dickerson were first-round picks. Linebacker Keith McCants of Alabama might be the first player selected in the draft.

Reserve linebacker Ron Cox, a second-year player from Fresno State, had two sacks and an interception to help the Chicago Bears limit the Miami Dolphins to 115 yards in a 6-0 victory in the NFL's exhibition opener Friday night. The Bears controlled the ball for 40 minutes. After three quarters, the Dolphins had run as many plays (19) as Chicago ran on its first possession.

The Chicago Bears finally started forcing turnovers and the result was Dave Wannstedt's first victory as coach. The Bears repeatedly cashed in on mistakes Sunday for a 47-17 victory over the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bears (1-2), who intercepted no passes and recovered only one fumble in their first two losses, intercepted four passes and recovered three fumbles against the Buccaneers. "The turnovers were the difference," Wannstedt said.

Cal State Fullerton added a chapter to a growing legacy of bungled chances and self-inflicted pain Saturday. Playing against Fresno State, which hasn't lost in its past 14 games, the Titans led by three points after a quarter, trailed by 23 early in the third, cut the lead to seven in the fourth, and killed their chances with a penalty-ridden defensive series that ended in a Fresno touchdown and a 33-19 Big West Conference loss.

Linebacker Ron Cox is Fresno State's best pass rusher. But he's dangerous even when he doesn't get the quarterback. Cox missed a chance for a fourth-quarter sack, but intercepted David Riley's pass and returned it 58 yards for the game-clinching touchdown as Fresno State won the California Bowl, 27-6, over Ball State Saturday. "The interception was an awesome play by Cox," said Fresno Coach Jim Sweeney, whose Bulldogs have won this game four times in nine years.
