As Miami eyes a possible third consecutive national title game appearance, the Buffalo Bulls brace for their fifth season in Division I-A. Who knew there were the Buffalo Bulls? The joke is that if you slur your words a bit, a prospect might think that it's the Buffalo Bills calling. There is a growing rift in college football between the haves and the have-nots, a substantial separation of power, and Miami and Buffalo represent the respective camps.

Seven years ago, about 2 dozen people, standing elbow to elbow on the streets of this tiny town, were trampled when a herd of bulls ran them over. Many were injured, none severely. The crowd, made up largely of American college students, kicked, punched and hurled bottles oozing with the local brew, Tecate beer. Their target was the bulls, whose stampede on the narrow, glass-encrusted streets launched a melee.

A 38-year-old man was gored to death today when he tripped and fell during the annual running of the bulls in this southwestern town. The running of the bulls in this town of 12,000 people 149 miles west of Madrid is staged as part of the annual fiesta dedicated to St. John. In the ritual, the bulls are turned loose before dawn in the town's sealed-off streets, and young men race ahead of them. The bulls are killed in bullfights later in the day.

The running of the bulls in Tecate, Mexico, which was scheduled to take place today and Sunday has been postponed until next weekend, organizers of the event said Friday. The tradition of running bulls through the streets of Tecate was postponed out of respect for the survivors of Thursday's earthquake in Mexico City, said Raquel Martinez, one of the organizers. The festivities will be held next weekend.
