W. Virginia's Hostetler leads upset of Oklahoma
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Jeff Hostetter picked apart the Oklahoma defense with a brilliant aerial display Saturday, four of his passes going for touchdowns, as he led unranked West Virginia to a stunning 41-27 intersectional football victory over the No. 9 Sooners.
Hostetler, a junior from Hollopple, Pa., threw for 321 yards with his final touchdown pass being a game-winner to wide receiver Wayne Brown midway in the final period.
The final points came on a 43-yard draw play that sent tailback Curlin Beck into the end zone with 2:14 remaining.
Oklahoma, which defeated West Virginia 52-10 in their last meeting in the Sooners’ 1978 opener, appeared to be breezing to an easy victory after scoring on its first two possessions and building a 14-Olead.
However, the Mountaineer defense stiffened in the second quarter and Hostetler’s aim improved to give West Virginia a 20-14 halftime edge.
The Sooners, with perhaps one of its fastest wishbone backfields ever, regained the lead on their first third-quarter possession when quarterback Kelley Phelps scored his second touchdown of the game. Phelps’ touchdown and the extra point by Michael Keeling gave Oklahoma a 21-20 edge.
Hostetler, however, directed the Mountaineers to another touchdown on their next drive, building West Virginia’s lead to 27-21.
The Sooners tied the game with 3Mt minutes left in the third period when cornerback Darrell Songy blocked a West Virginia punt and safety Keith Stanberry scooped up the ball and ripped into the end zone. Keeling missed the extra point.
Alabama 45, Georgia Tech 7
ATLANTA (AP) — Jesse Bendross dashed 58 yards on an end around and Walter Lewis raced 41 yards for second-quarter touchdowns as fourth-ranked Alabama crushed Georgia Tech 45-7 in college football Saturday.
Alabama scored on its first five possessions as the Crimson Tide launched the season in impressive fashion in a light drizzle, avenging a 24-21 upset loss to Tech a year ago.
It gave Paul “Bear” Bryant, the all-time leader in coaching victories, his 316th career triumph on his 69th birthday at the start of his 38th season.
The Tide cashed in two pass interceptions and a fumble recovery for first-half touchdowns and amassed 317 yards in offense by intermission.
Florida 17, USO 9
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Spencer Jackson made a sensational fourth-down catch of Wayne Peace’s 1-yard touchdown pass and James Jones’ 22-yard run with 37 seconds left in the first half capped a 97-yard drive Saturday as Uth-ranked Florida defeated No. IO Southern California 17-9.
It was the opening game for Southern Cal and the second consecutive victory over a Top Twenty team for Florida, which beat Miami 17-14 a week earlier.
Jackson’s diving grab came with 4:52 left in the second period. Peace lobbed the ball over the head of cornerback Darrel Hopper and Jackson came down just inside the left boundary of the end zone before he slid out of bounds. The touchdown spoiled a goal-line stand by Southern Cal after Florida failed on three previous cracks following a first down at the 2.
The Gators then stunned the Trojans with a 97-yard strike in six plays after David Pryor’s 49-yard punt was downed at the Florida 3. The drive included a 48-yard gain on a look-in pass from Peace to Dwayne Dixon.
Penn St. 39, Maryland 31
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Quarterback Todd Blackledge threw four touchdown passes for the second straight week as he rallied seventh-ranked Penn State to a 39-31 victory over Maryland on Saturday in a college football game.
After Penn State fell behind 24-23 late in the third quarter, Blackledge led a drive of 78 yards that was capped with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Greg Garrity. The Nittany Lions tried a pass for a two-point conversion that was complete, but fell short of the goal.
Blackledge then directed the Nittany Lions 60 yards in five plays, throwing IO yards to Kenny Jackson in the end zone for a 36-24 lead in the final period.
Washington 55, UT-EI Paso 0
SEATTLE (AP) — Quarterback Steve Pelluer passed for 256 yards and two touchdowns and Chuck Nelson booted four field goals Saturday as No. 2-ranked Washington opened its football season by thrashing Texas-El Paso 55-0.
The two-time defending Pacific-10 Conference champion Huskies made it two shutouts in a row. Washington blanked Iowa 28-0 in the 1982 Rose Bowl for the first shutout in Pasadena, Calif., in 28 years.
With virtually everyone back from last season, the Huskies simply had too much manpower for UTEP, a school that went 6-51 on the football field from 1977-81.
lied by the sharp-throwing Pelluer, a junior, the Huskies registered more than 500 yards in total offense on a drizzly, overcast day. Pelluer, who was taken out of the game late in the third quarter, completed 17 of 29 passes.
Georgia 17, Brigham Young 14
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Sophomore Kevin Butter booted a 44-yard field goal with 1:11 remaining to cap a fourth quarter rally and lift the sixth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs to a 17-14 college football victory over Brigham Young on Saturday.
The winning kick was set up when the Bulldogs, 2-0, marched 40 yards in the last three minutes, keyed by a 23-yard burst by Herschel Walker to the Cougars’ 33-yard line.
Walker, who rushed for 124 yards on 31 carries, had gotten Georgia even at 14-14 with only 5:36 left when he dove over for a 1-yard touchdown.
Ronnie Harris preserved Georgia’s victory over the Cougars, 1-1, when he intercepted a Steve Young pass on his 25 with 43 seconds remaining in the contest, which was played in a steady rain the entire second half.
Nebraska 42, Iowa 7
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Turner Gill threw two touchdown passes and directed two other scoring marches, sparking No. 3 Nebraska to a 42-7 victory over Iowa on Saturday in a college football season opener.
The crowd of 76,013, Nebraska’s 119th straight sellout, saw the Comhuskers score on three of their first four possessions and bolt to a 28-0 halftime lead in avenging a 10-7 loss to Iowa in last year’s opener.
Gill, coming off a leg injury that sidelined him in the Orange Bowl, fired a 41-yard touchdown pass to Irving Fryar in the first quarter and hit Todd Brown on a 7-yard scoring pass in the fourth period. The junior quarterback also directed the Cornhuskers on first-half scoring marches of 80 and 84 yards.
Air Force 44, San Diego St. 32
AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Junior quarterback Marty Louthan ran for three touchdowns and passed for another to lead the Air Force Academy to a 44-32 victory over San Diego State Saturday in a Western Athletic Conference opener for each team.
Attacking from the wishbone formation, Louthan combined with workhorse fullback John Kershner to control the game from the pass-happy Aztecs.
The victory gave Air Force a 1-1 record overall and 1-0 in WAC play. It was the first game of the season for San Diego State.
Louthan, who threw only six times in the game, surprised the Aztec defense on the Falcon’s first play from scrimmage. He found Mike Kirby behind the San Diego State secondary and completed a touchdown pass that went for 70 yards.
Missouri 23, Army 10
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Marlon Adler threw two touchdown passes to Curtland Thomas and scrambled 24 yards for another touchdown, leading sluggish Missouri to a 23-10 victory over Army in college football Saturday.
The Cadets scored a touchdown in the third period, their first in 13 quarters dating back to last season, and were tied 10-10 with the heavily favored Tigers heading into the fourth period.
But Missouri, 2-0, scored twice in a 3-minute span of the fourth period with Adler, a sophomore walk-on, providing the impetus.
On a third-and-four from the 24, Adler rolled out on a quarterback option, cut back across the grain and pranced into the end zone, giving the Tigers a 17-10 lead with IO:24 left.
Navy 20, Virginia 16
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Navy quarterback Marco Pagnanelli and tailback Rich Clouse teamed for touchdown passes of 18 and 19 yards Saturday, to lead Navy to a 20-16 victory over Virginia.
Two field goals and two extra points by kicker Steve Young completed the scoring as the Midshipmen gave head coach Gary Tranquill a victory in his debut as head coach.
Virginia dominated the offensive statistics, largely because of the passing of quarterbacks Mike Eek and Wayne Schuchts, but two big Navy plays helped preserve the triumph for the Midshipmen.
Safety Kurt Dixon stopped one Virginia drive by recovering a fumble on the Navy five yard line in the second period. Defensive back Erie Wallace intercepted a pass from Eek in the end zone to put an end to a third-period drive by the Cavaliers.
The Midshipmen scored the winning tounchdown with just 54 seconds left in the third period, after defensive back Brian Cianella recovered a fumble at the Virginia 23. Clouse picked up four yards on two running plays, and then grabbed the 19-yard scoring toss from Pagnanelli.
Virginia cut the margin to four points, 20-16, on a field goal by Wayne Morrison midway through the fourth quarter.
