Four straight wins and a month later, California is still being defined by its lone loss. The Bears, ranked No. 9 in the preseason, went to No. 23 Tennessee for the season opener and were embarrassed in a 35-18 rout on national television. "That's hung with us for [more than four] weeks now," Cal coach Jeff Tedford said. "It seems like every question starts with, `since the Tennessee game.'" Tonight, No. 16 Cal (4-1 overall, 2-0 Pacific-10 Conference) gets another nationally televised game with the chance to move on from the first one, hosting No. 11 Oregon (4-0, 2-0)

After a string of five losing seasons, Mount Saint Joseph's football players resolved during the offseason to create a new identity for their Gaels program this fall - one that would bring winning back. Their work ethic combined with a more experienced team and schematic changes on both sides of the ball have the Gaels off to a 4-0 start - their best opening since 1995. "Based on the fact that we've doubled our wins from last season, team morale is definitely at an all-time high," senior lineman Jimmy Moore said, "and getting a couple wins at Bullis and Dover (Del.)

If they don't start producing soon, the Virginia Cavaliers might run out of time to recover. If No. 10 Virginia keeps falling in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings and becomes a bubble team when the NCAA selects its 65-team tournament field next month, the Cavaliers' predicament could be traced to the night of Jan. 31, when Maryland erased a nine-point deficit with 3:22 left and shocked Virginia, 91-87. Virginia followed by losing a close game at No. 24 Missouri. But that was merely a warm-up for an embarrassing collapse at North Carolina State, which might have solidified serious NCAA tournament consideration by pummeling the Cavaliers on Wednesday, 85-68.

CLEVELAND - Hardened by the neglect and abuse that comes from being a fourth-place team, the Orioles finally get to experience the joys of being the middle child in their division. It becomes a little more difficult to ignore them - at least in a baseball family - even if they're still not the most popular or loved. It might not last long, but they'll milk whatever affection they can get. Jeff Conine, who homered earlier in the game, lined a two-run single off Carl Sadler with two outs in the 12th inning last night, and the Orioles rallied for the second straight game to defeat the Cleveland Indians, 6-4, at Jacobs Field and win their first series since mid-September.

WALK THIS WAY Orioles pitchers entered last night with an American League-high 547 walks, so it wasn't surprising to see an Orioles pitcher walk four straight batters. It was surprising that Oriole was Jeremy Guthrie. The right-hander had walked four or more in only three of his first 28 starts this season, but by the second inning, he had already issued five free passes, including four straight two-out walks in the second. TEMPERS FLARE Orioles pitching coach Rick Kranitz yelled at plate umpire Sam Holbrook from the dugout in the fourth inning.

Today Case of the Blues, a daughter of In Case which has won several stakes locally, returns from vacation to face seven other fillies and mares in the Nellie Morse Stakes. The Tony Dutrow-trained mare is the likely favorite for the 19th running of the $75,000, 1 1/16-mile affair. During her 2000 campaign, Case of the Blues reeled off four straight victories in added-money events before failing at long odds in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico. Her chief opposition is likely to come from Prized Stamp, winner of two recent outings vs. high-priced claimers, or Sheldons Jet. Sheldons Jet hasn't raced since last July, when she completed her campaign by winning three straight.

The Loyola lacrosse team won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship last year with its standout players stepping up to take hold of the big moments. The No. 6 Dons picked up where they left off in Friday's league opener against No. 4 Gilman. Junior midfielder Ryan Conrad finished with two goals and five assists, and junior goalie Acie Newton had 10 saves to lead Loyola to a resilient 9-8 win over the visiting Greyhounds. Trailing for much of the game and down 6-5 going into the fourth quarter, the Dons scored four straight goals and held off a late charge from Gilman to claim the win. Loyola improved to 5-3 overall and 1-0 in the MIAA, while the Greyhounds evened their record at 3-3 and are 0-1 in the league.

During his four-year career as an attackman at Hobart, Tom Gravante fueled the school's run to four consecutive NCAA Division III championships between 1985 and 1988 and was inducted into the university's Hall of Fame in 2006. On Saturday, Gravante will do his best to beat his alma mater. When the Statesmen (2-6 overall and 1-1 in the Northeast Conference) visit Emmitsburg on Saturday, they will tangle with league foe Mount St. Mary's, which is coached by Gravante. The Mountaineers suffered their ninth consecutive loss Tuesday, 15-8, to Robert Morris, setting up the first all-time meeting between Gravante and Hobart.

Here is a breakdown of the slate that awaits the Blue Jays, who went 9-5 last year and failed to qualify for their 42nd straight NCAA tournament. 10: The 10-goal benchmark was critical for Johns Hopkins in 2012.

The last time Towson rode a four-game winning streak in men's basketball, this year's team was in grade school. Bill Clinton was president, Michael Phelps was a medal-less Olympian and iPods didn't exist. "Not since 2000? That's crazy," said Marcus Damas, Towson's 6-foot-7 forward and a reason the Tigers are on a four-game roll. "We didn't know that until our media people started throwing out statistics. " Towson (8-8) goes for its fifth straight against Northeastern (8-7) at noon Saturday in the Towson Center.

They hit the road soon, and history suggests the road will hit back."It's a very inopportune time to lose four straight, especially of the variety we have.

For the better part of this season, the Liberty boys soccer team played the role of the lovable loser, always coming agonizingly close to victory before watching it slip away. Following last night's 1-0 win over Urbana, however, the Lions now have captured a somewhat more sought-after role - regional champion. Nick Rigby's goal with 11:03 left gave host Liberty the lead, sending the Lions - who went 5-7 during the regular season and once lost four straight games in overtime - to the first state semifinal for any Carroll County team since 1991.

Gilman's Wyatt Dickerson scored two touchdowns and played a key defensive role to make his final Gilman-McDonogh game a memorable one. The senior running back's two short touchdown runs came late in the first half and early in the second as the No. 1 Greyhounds seized more than enough momentum to carry them to a 48-12 victory over a resilient Eagles squad in their 97th meeting Saturday at Gilman. The Greyhounds (7-2) won for the fourth straight time and lead the series 59-33-5.
