The final score wasn't close Saturday as 12th-ranked Auburn pounded No. 4 Florida State, 59-27, but Seminole Coach Bobby Bowden figured his team might have won with one extra player. That player: Auburn senior tailback Bo Jackson. "Bo Jackson was the difference in the game," Bowden said. "He's one of the greats of all time. "I think if we would have had him, we probably would have won the game. The teams were fairly even. He's the difference."

A C-130 cargo plane performing a tank-dropping maneuver crashed and burned on a dirt runway Wednesday, killing five servicemen but stopping 100 yards short of bleachers filled with spectators. Four of six Air Force crewmen on the plane were killed, as well as an Army soldier on the ground, said Capt. Brian Irving of Pope Air Force Base, where the four-engine turboprop was based. The two survivors were being transferred to Brooke Army Medical Center at Ft. Sam Houston, Tex.
