sevenrun eighth inning and New York rallied past the Seattle Mariners 71 Wednesday Orlando Hernandez pitching on his birthday allowed six hits and struck out seven in eight innings It seemed like the Yankees hopes for a third straight World Series title were fading away Then suddenly New York went 8for8 to start the eighth inning The eight hits were an ALCS record and the most in an inning for the Yankees since June 29 at Detroit Seattles bullpen got blown apart wasting six shutout innings by starter John Halama David Justice started the big inning with a double to leftcen ter that hit less

Weve gotten better each week through the first half of the season and See ExGiant ready to pay back old team BY JAIME ARON AP Sports Writer IRVING Phillippi Sparks was two games into his NFL career when he learned how badly the New York Giants want to beat the Dallas Cowboys The rookie cornerback was walking off the field at Giants Stadium following a 3428 loss to Dallas when teammate Leonard Marshall put an arm around Sparks and aimed the other at the Scoreboard You see that Marshall said sternly Dont you ever let it happen again Take it Sparks told that story Wednesday while sitting in front of his locker at Cowboys headquarters He couldnt help but smile as he thought about the rivalry hell experience from this side for the first time on Sunday Ever since he continued Ive known it was a lovehate relationship between Dallas and New The hate part is understood This time the love is coming from Sparks who fondly recalls his eight seasons with the Giants even though he was not resigned after last season They made a business Sparks said No one left on bad The Cowboys were interested in him early in the summer but instead signed Ryan McNeil and drafted three Sparks was still unsigned when two of the rookies got hurt and the third was struggling So Sparks was signed just before the open er He backed up fourthround pick Kareem Larrimore for the first four games then became the starter in the last game against Carolina Dallas won 1613 and teammates credited Sparks with providing stability Any time you have four veterans in the secondary things are going to be said safety

Conference fan in Texas As a college football fan living in the state of Texas my ego took quite a punch in the eye this past weekend with winless Colorado sticking it to the Aggies in front of their home crowd in College Station first home loss in 22 games and Oklahoma whipping the Longhorns almost to the point of extinc tion Baylor also lost but at least it was to fellow Texans Texas Tech All of a sudden the best team in Texas looks to be TCU The 17thranked Horned Frogs certainly have the best running back in the country in LaDainian Tomlinson who rushed for 294 yards highest in the country this season against Hawaii on Saturday What can you say about Texas Obviously the hype and the high presea son ranking came perhaps a year early Maybe when quarterback Major Applewhite is a senior Chris Sirnrns has BRYAN ADAMS transferred all the nonsense about two starting quarterbacks is ancient history Victor Ike is the starting tailback and the defense is a little wiser and more experi enced then Texas can start talking about contending for national This season it would now be some what of shocker if the Horns won the conference title Texas still has a conference scheduled that does not include Nebraska or Kansas State but now that game at Colorado this Saturday doesnt look so easy Texas Tech will be smiling a little wider come Nov 4 Not to mention the Aggies were expecting to grill Longhorn fajitas on No 24 before the season even started Will a 65 season turn up the heat on head coach Mack Brown Maybe a little Just to be safe if youre a die hard Texas fan I would start looking into hotel availability in Shreveport La COLORADO 30 TEXAS 20 I want to point out that the Adams household is in turmoil this week Papa Adams better known as Papa Husker has been talking smack all week to junior Red Raider But Papa Husker is the worst smack talker in the state of Texas He likes to compare academic allAmericans and ramble on about Husker teams of the past Even though Nebraska is ranked No 1 in the nation and Texas Tech lost to unranked Texas and barely beat unrespected North Texas I actually have Papa Husker and a few relatives in Nebraska thinking the Red Raiders might win this one Nebraskas defense is weak against the pass and Tech does throw the ball a lot but the Raiders average less than 10 yards a pass 106th in the nation and it is likely quarterback KlirT Kingsbury will surfer more turf burns than he is used to courtesy of Nebraskas awesome defensive front NEBRASKA 26 TEXAS TECH 21 If the Aggies went to the doctor about their upset stomachs after
