Huntington Beach answered two series later with a 20-play, 75-yard drive that consumed more than 11 minutes, but came away with only a field goal.

Crespi High came within inches of pulling off a dramatic second-half comeback before falling to St. John Bosco, 35-33, in a Del Rey League opener at St. John Bosco High. With five seconds left in the game, Crespi's Todd McLean lofted a pass toward Ryan Block, who was streaking down the right sideline. The pass was deflected by a St. John Bosco defender just inches out of the reach of Block's outstretched hands, and time expired. "We just ran out of time," an exhausted Crespi Coach Tim Lins said.

OK, so maybe Texas A&M doesn't have the market cornered on this 12th man stuff. How about those UCLA fans, all 64,820 in the Rose Bowl Saturday, helping pull the unbeaten Bruins through a 28-24 close call against the 1-7 Stanford Cardinal. These are the same Bruin fans who, not too many years ago, sold their Rose Bowl tickets in droves and left the football team to deal with--unsuccessfully as it turned out--a UCLA home field overtaken by red-clad Wisconsin Badger faithful.
