1. Who will rule at quarterback? With three legitimate candidates vying for playing time after Brian Madden returns from a two-game suspension, the hot hand is likely to reign week to week. Craig Candeto seems most suited to the wide-open offense, and Ed Malinowski is old reliable. Whether either can win the starting job permanently in the first two games is an intriguing question. 2. Can the offensive line mature rapidly? The newly installed flexbone scheme will require a variety of blocking assignments from a unit that has only one starter with appreciable experience.

HONOLULU -- No two college bowl teams could be more dissimilar in offensive style than Navy and California, which will meet today in the Aloha Bowl. And the two quarterbacks, Chris McCoy and Pat Barnes, have both prospered operating their disparate systems."

In yesterday's Howard County edition, a headline was mismatched with a photograph of Oakland Mills High School cheerleader April Page. The headline should have said Miss Page is to perform at the Aloha Bowl, a college football game.The Baltimore Sun regrets the errors.April Page knows it's Brigham Young University playing somebody, but the football matchup isn't the most important part anyway.What really matters to the Oakland Mills High School junior is that she'll be making her first trip ever west of Pittsburgh to perform during pre-game festivities and the halftime show at the Jeep-Eagle Aloha Bowl in Honolulu, to be televised nationally on ABC on Christmas Day.April, who left for Hawaii Saturday for four days of intense two-a-day practices to prepare for the performances, was selected for the honor during a summer National Cheerleaders Association camp.

J. Sutton because of suspensions. But senior RB Cedric Washington, who had a big year in 1999, is quite capable. QB Tim Hasselbeck (16 TD passes), can make plays if he has time to throw.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Several weeks ago, an early October swoon seemed to mean an idle December for the Maryland football team. But the Terps have since regrouped, last week posting the school's biggest win in recent years, a 35-28 double-overtime victory over North Carolina State. Now it makes sense to speculate about a postseason appearance, which would be the team's first in 10 years. Maryland answered a three-game losing streak with the three-game win streak it takes into today's noon game at North Carolina.

Boxing Dedicating fight to father, Laila Ali victorious in China Laila Ali, fighting where her father never did during his much-traveled career, proved a big hit, just like Muhammad Ali was wherever he boxed. "I did it for you, Dad," Ali said yesterday in Guangzhou, China, after stopping prison guard Kristina King in the fourth round. Ali brought the biggest name in boxing to town and was the undisputed star of a show that featured heavyweight Andrew Golota. Golota stopped Marcus Rhode in the third round -- almost knocking him out of the ring as Rhode went down for the fourth time.

The Naval Academy football team has a three-fold assignment this weekend.Not only do the Midshipmen have to beat a rejuvenated Hawaii team that has recovered from a winless season to go 7-3 and earn a bowl bid, they have to beat the heat and a five-hour time change.It is a rigorous task for Navy, which has endured five narrow defeats, won its last two games and is shooting for a .500 record.This is Navy's first trip to the islands since December 1996, when it rallied to master California, 42-38, in an exciting Aloha Bowl game.

COLLEGE PARK -- There is no need to wonder why Ron Vanderlinden has closed Maryland football practices to the media this week and virtually shut his players and himself off from all interviews.The Maryland-Virginia duel at Byrd Stadium at noon Saturday is the biggest game Vanderlinden has coached in his three years here.The first 32 seem like preliminaries to the high stakes facing the Terps (5-5, 2-5) when they take the field for the final regular-season game of the year.The school's first bowl bid since 1990, which would produce an $800,000 paycheck, Vanderlinden's first winning season, Maryland's first winning season since 1995 and continued belief in the Vanderlinden way, will be on the line.

COLLEGE PARK -- Don't cancel the flights to Honolulu yet. Maryland is down but not out of the running for a berth in the Jeep Aloha/Oahu Christmas Day doubleheader. It looks as if either North Carolina State or Maryland will be the Atlantic Coast Conference's representative in the Aloha Bowl. "If it comes down to Maryland and N.C. State, the team that is the most exciting and can give the best show on national television will probably be the one that gets the bid," said Leonard Klompus, CEO of the Jeep Aloha/Oahu doubleheader yesterday.

Joe Krivak, who resigned nearly 2 1/2 weeks ago as Maryland's football coach, may become an assistant on Bobby Ross' staff if Ross is named coach of the San Diego Chargers.San Diego coach Dan Henning was fired yesterday, and Ross, along with University of Miami coach Dennis Erickson, are the two top candidates to replace Henning."I chatted with Bobby the day before he went to the Aloha Bowl, but I've only read and seen what's in the paper like everybody else," Krivak said. "The thought of working in the NFL does intrigue me, and yes, I would be interested if a position became available."
