FREEMAN AP Sports Writer IRVING (AP) — Barry Switzer calls it a must win. Ray Rhodes says it* as big as an eariy-season game can get. It* Philadelphia-Dallas, an intense rivalry that sometimes produces unexpected results. Like last year. Dallas, hanging on the ropes with a 1-3 start, staggered into Veterans Stadium barely clinging to life. Things looked dark for the defending Super Bowl champions in the Monday night game when Philadelphia jumped to a 10-0 lead. Then Herschel Walker made a big kickoff return and the lifeless Cowboys survived 23-19 as Emmitt Smith rushed for 92 yards and scored a touchdown and Troy Aikman hit a TD PBM. Dallas won eight of its last ll games and got into the playoffs. However, one of those losses was to the Eagles, who beat the Cowboys 31-21 in Texas Stadium. Vni might recall the exciting finish. James Willis intercepted 78131-1328 In peroon at 707 Lands St. during normal business hours Monday through Friday Via a iwM at HZsportsBaol.com We appreciate your efforts in helping us fill Sports Day with as many local stories and photographs as possible. Aikman* pass in the end zone and ran 14 yards before latening to Troy Vincent, who raced 90 yards for the longest interception return in NFL history. I he Eagles celebrated so long and hard they lost their next three games. The two NFC East rivals meet again Monday night. They are each 1-1 and have alternately looked like world beaters or the worst team in the NFL. The Eagles lost 31-17 to the New York Giants, then turned around and beat defending league champion Green Bay 10-9, holding the Packers without a touchdown for the first time in 85 straight games. Dallas pushed Pittsburgh around 37-7 in the opener before blowing* 15-point lead to lose 25-22 to Arizona. MIt* a crazy year,** said Eagles quarterback Ty Detmer, who will start against the Cowboys. “We don’t lode good in our opener, then beat Green Bay. Dallas kills Pittsburgh, then Arizona beats diem. I guess you could say there* a lot of parity in the NFL.” Detmer said the Eagles have to be careful not to get too high for the Cowboys, who were nine-point favorites. “You want to beat Dallas because it gives you a lot of credibility,’' Detmer said. “Looking back on last year, I think we put too much emphasis on it. Maybe we thought we were better than we were.” Rhodes agreed. “We were mentally spent after that gjune last year,” Rhodes said of the victory at Dallas. “We were just drained. ” Rhodes said he was starting Detmer as a reward for taking the Eagles to the win over the Packers. Rodney Peete will wait on the bench. “Detmer will be our starting quarterback and I’m not the kind of guy who wants a quick hook on anybody,” Rhodes said. Eagles wide receiver Irving Fryer said the game is a big as it gets for Philadelphia. “We can make a statement,” Fryar said. “They’ve been the Super Bowl champs. We’ve beaten one Super Bowl champ last week. If you can beat another one, I think it says a lot about our team.” The Eagles haven’t won an NFC NFL on TV Sunctey1* Games Arizona at Washington, noon TV FOX Mteri at Green Boy noon TV.

Dallas is hoping Anthony Miller returns from a hamstring injury to provide another option in the passing game. “I would love to have Anthony. I would like to have, everybody healthy every week,” Michael Irvin said. “Unfortunately, that* not reality. Saying this guy didn’t play and that hurt us, and this guy didn’t play and that hurt us, that* not good enough. “We’ve got to be able to play and we’ve got to be able to play no matter the situation.” Penn State routs Temple in season opener Peru1 1 State 52 Temf Die IO STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Chafie Fields ran for 90 yards and two touchdowns on reverses as No. I Penn State beat Temple 52-10 on Saturday. Penn State took a 14-7 lead with 8:27 left in the first half on a 43-yard reverse by Fields. Cordell Mitchell extended the lead to 21-7 on a 38-yard run for his first career TD. Mike McQueary hit Joe Nastasi from 25 yards out to end the scoring for the half. Fields opened the third quarter with a second reverse for a touchdown, this from 47 yards. McQueary threw a block near the IO to clear the way. Penn State (2-0) shifted gears from last week* passing extravaganza against Pitt and ran for 327 yards. Curtis Ems had 81 yards on 16 carries and one TU increasing his career total to 2,059, kith on the Nittany Lions’ career list. McQueary, who threw for a school-record 366 yards last Saturday, was 10-for-19 for 158 yards and two touchdowns before being replaced by redshift sophomore Kevin Thompson after three quarters. Joe Jurevicius grabbed three passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. Mg. 14 Michigan 17, Nm. • Colorado 3 ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)—There was no last-second drama this time. Brian Griese passed for 258 yards and two touchdowns and Michigan* defense smothered Colorado as the No. 14 Wolverines beat the No. 8 Buffalos 27-3 Saturday. Griese, who wasn’t announced as the starter until Tuesday, completed 21-of-28 passes with one interception for Michigan (1-0). John Hessler, who brought Colorado (1-1) back in the second half a week ago against Colorado State, had four passes intercepted by the Wolverines’ veteran defense, led by All-American Charles Woodson. Hessler was 15-of-40 for 141 yards. Michigan held the Buffaloes to 224 yards while the Wolverines churned out 426. The last two games between these heavyweights College football roundup ended on the final play of the game. Colorado pulled out a 27-26 victory on a game-ending pass from Kordell Stewart to Michael Westbrook in 1994. Michigan knocked down a pass in the end zone to preserve a victory last year at Boulder. No. 9 OMO Stat# 44, Soaiwi Stein IS COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Michael Wiley scored two touchdowns, including a 100-yard kickoff return, as No. 9 Ohio State overcame a sloppy first half to beat Bowling Green 44-13 Saturday. The victory was Ohio State* 17th in a row over an in-state college, dating to a 7-6 loss to Oberlin in 1921. Ohio State moved to 2-0, but much as in a 24-10 opening-game victory over Wyoming on Aug. 28, it wasn't pretty or easy — particularly in the first half. The Buckeyes lost four fumbles in the opening half and Gary Berry* interception was disallowed by a roughing penalty. In the second half, David Boston* 65-yard punt return for a touchdown was disallowed by a clipping penalty. Despite losing a fumble, Wiley did it all for Ohio Straff rushed for 72 yards on IO carries, caught twgiptiies for 23 yards and even completed the first pass attempt of his collegiate career for 31 yards. No. 4 Nabraika 38, Cantoral Florida 24 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Central Florida gave No. 6 Nebraska a good warmup for No. 3 Washington — and a good scare. The Comhuskers fell behind three times in the first half Saturday before getting two touchdown runs in the third quarter from freshman Correll Buckhalter to beat the Golden Knights 38-24. Nebraska (2-OX which routed Akron 59-14 in its opener, hadn’t figured to be challenged until traveling to face quarterback Brock Huard and the Huskies next Saturday. Central Florida (0-3), which got 318 of its 365 yards from the arm of quarterback Daunte Culpepper, led 17-14 at the half to throw a scare into Nebraska, which last lost to an unranked oppo nent at home in 1978. It only lasted for one half. Joe Walker returned the second-half kickoff 51 yards, setting up Kris Brown* 21-yard field goal that tied the game with 10:20 left in the third quarter. Nebraska then marched downfield behind Buckhalter to score on its next two possessions to pull away. Natalia 28, Southwest Texas 24 HEMPSTEAD, RY. (AP) — Giovanni Carmazzi completed 35 of 46 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns as Hofstra beat Southwest Texas 28-24 on Saturday to improve to 2-0. Carmazzi, who set career bests for completions, yards and touchdowns, threw two touchdowns passes each to Brian Kish and Paul Que. Kish had 12 receptions for 141 yards. Southwest Texas’ Dave Williams was 16-for-27 for 233 yards, with 49- and 46-yard touchdown passes to Terrance Hatton. Claude Mathis rushed for 103 yards on 21 carries for the Bobcats (1-1). No. 3 Washington 36, San Bloop N & SEATTLE (APLsTT.flW* Huwd pin* four touchdown passes as No. 3 Washington beat San Diego State 36-3 on Saturday. Washington (2-OX perhaps looking ahead to next weekend* game against No. 6 Nebraska, was slow to get untracked in a sloppy, penalty-filled game. Jerome Pathon caught eight passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies. The Aztecs (1-1) converted only once in 13 third-down attempts and their rushing game was completely shut down. The Huskies limited Kevin McKechnie, the nation* top-rated quarterback, to 203 yards passing. Huard, a sophomore, completed 16-of-26 for 313 yards, and has not been intercepted in his last 158 passing attempts. The game was Washington* 108th home opener and they have won 12 of those in a row. Huard* 47-yard pass to Fred Coleman set up the Huskies’ first touchdown early in the first quarter. Is all tho fine print of wireless service making you hesitate? Come into RadioShack today.
