Michigan Takes Revenge on Colorado

BOULDER, Colorado -- Two years later, the ball took a Michigan bounce.


In an eerie replay of Colorado's last-play win over the Wolverines in 1994, a desperation pass into the end zone fell incomplete Saturday and Michigan escaped with a 20-13 victory over the fifth-ranked Buffaloes.


Colorado gained possession with five seconds left, and Koy Detmer launched a pass toward the end zone. As the ball arrived, several Michigan defenders jumped along with wide receiver James Kidd. The ball was tipped and it fell to the ground as another Colorado receiver dived in vain to make the catch.


The Michigan players swarmed the field to celebrate, and the Wolverines had something to talk about other than Kordell Stewart's 64-yard Hail Mary to Michael Westbrook in Colorado's 27-26 1994 win at Ann Arbor, Michigan.


Scott Dreisbach threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jerame Tuman late in the third quarter to put Michigan ahead after Remy Hamilton's 42-yard field goal tied the score at 13.


Michigan took a 3-0 lead on Hamilton's 37-yard field goal with 10:33 left in the opening period. Lendon Henry's 11-yard TD run with 11:31 left in the half put Colorado ahead, but the Wolverines regained the lead on a 7-yard run by Clarence Williams. Detmer's 5-yard TD pass to Phil Savoy put the Buffaloes ahead 13-10. The extra point was blocked.


Penn St. 49, N. Illinois 0. At State College, Pennsylvania, Chafie Fields, replacing Curtis Enis who was out with strep throat, ran for two TDs during a 21-point burst in 2:17 of the second period for the Nittany Lions (3-0). Tight end Joe Jurevicius caught two scoring passes, including a 51-yarder from Mike McQueary.


Notre Dame 35, Purdue 0. At South Bend, Indiana, Autry Denson ran for two TDs and caught a scoring pass from Ron Powlus to pace the Irish (2-0).


Allen Rossum returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a TD. Denson had 66 yards on 15 carries, caught three passes for 61 yards and returned two punts for six yards. Powlus was 19-of-32 for 238 yards.


Washington 29, No. 14 Brigham Young 17. At Seattle, Rashaan Shehee ran for two first-half TDs, Shane Fortney threw for one and ran for another as the Huskies (1-1) stopped BYU's passing whiz Steve Sarkisian (23-of-35 for 279 yards and two TDs).


The Huskies had eight sacks and Jerry Jensen tackled Sarkisian for a safety with 1:21 to go.


No. 15 Auburn 45, Mississippi 28. At Oxford, Mississippi, Dameyune Craig threw three TD passes and Fred Beasley ran for two in the fourth quarter for the Tigers (3-0).


Craig, 13-of-25 for a career-high 249 yards, had scoring passes of 67 and 23 yards to Robert Baker and 22 yards to Karsten Bailey.


Kansas St. 35, Cincinnati 0. At Manhattan, Kansas, Marlon Charles and Mike Lawrence each scored two TDs as the Wildcats (3-0) overcame their own sloppy play. The Bearcats fell to 1-2.


Virginia Tech 45, Boston College 7. At Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, the Hokies won their 12th straight game, a school record, as Brian Edmonds and Shyrone Stith each had two scoring runs.


Virginia Tech (2-0) scored on its first three possessions as Edmonds ran 19 and 21 yards for TDs and Stith added TDs of eight and 11 yards.


Iowa 38, Iowa St. 13. At Iowa City, Tavian Banks ran for a career-best 182 yards and three TDs, including an 89-yarder as Iowa (2-0) beat Iowa State for the 14th straight time.


Iowa State's Troy Davis had 152 yards and a TD, but Iowa built a 24-0 halftime lead and finished with 526 total yards.


Virginia 21, Maryland 3. At Charlottesville, Virginia, Tony Dingle returned an interception 10 yards for a TD and recovered a fumble to set up Tiki Barber's 6-yard score for the Cavaliers (2-0). Barber finished with 123 yards.


Alabama 36, Vanderbilt 26. At Tuscaloosa, Alabama, fans booed the home team in a close game against the Commodores. The Tide (3-0) scored 21 points in a three-minute span of the third quarter and then held off Vandy (0-2).


Freddie Kitchens ran 15 yards for a TD, safety Kevin Jackson scored on a 44-yard interception return and a fumble recovery was converted into another TD as Alabama led 36-18.


Alvin Duke returned a punt 88 yards for a Vandy TD, but the Commodores got no closer. Vandy also scored on an 81-yard TD run off a fake punt.
