SAN DIEGO -- Whoever happens to win the Heisman Trophy next year would do well to dodge Texas A&M. Ty Detmer didn't, and he probably wishes he had.The Aggies separated each of Detmer's shoulders at different times Saturday night, knocking the 1990 Heisman winner out of the Sea World Holiday Bowl and routing Brigham Young, 65-14, at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium.It was the fourth time in six years that the Aggies have defeated the Heisman winner.Detmer looked no better against A&M than did Bo Jackson in the 1987 Cotton Bowl, Notre Dame's Tim Brown in the 1988 Cotton Bowl or Houston's Andre Ware last season in losing efforts against the Aggies.

Paterno's back Penn State coach Joe Paterno returned to Beaver Stadium for the first time since breaking his left leg Nov. 4. The 79-year-old watched the Nittany Lions' 17-13 win over Michigan State from the press box after missing last week's game against Temple - the first JoePa-less contest for Penn State since 1977. Doctors have said that Paterno must stay off his feet for at least another month. It's easy wearing green Notre Dame's 41-9 victory over Army ended a four-game losing streak for its green jerseys.

The Houston Bowl was guaranteed a classic run vs. pass matchup yesterday when Texas Tech accepted an invitation to play Navy on Dec. 30 at Reliant Stadium. In an intriguing pairing, the Midshipmen will match their old-school, No. 1-ranked rushing attack against Texas Tech's new-wave, No. 1-ranked passing game triggered by quarterback B.J. Symons. "It will be a tremendous challenge to play Texas Tech," said Navy coach Paul Johnson, the day after his team methodically romped past rival Army, 34-6, to finish the regular season at 8-4. "They traditionally have one of the best offenses in the country, and they have a ton of great athletes."

NEW YORK -- Ty Detmer's record numbers finally convinced the nation that a Brigham Young quarterback with a strong arm was more deserving of the Heisman Trophy than another Notre Dame flanker.Detmer won the 56th Heisman Memorial Trophy over Rocket Ismail, presented last night at the Downtown Athletic Club, 1,482 votes to 1,177. Ismail did not even win the Midwest, one of six regions divided for voting, where a strong Ismail showing was predicted to make this one of the closest votes in Heisman history.

Whoosh!!! Hey, was that The Rocket running away with the Heisman Trophy?With slightly more than two weeks left before the announcement, Notre Dame's all-purpose player Raghib "Rocket" Ismail seems to be the front-running candidate for college football's big award.Doesn't this all sound familiar?Ismail starts out deep behind Brigham Young quarterback Ty Detmer and Michigan's Jon Vaughn, then runs into a pile of others, including running backs Eric Bieniemy of Colorado and Darren Lewis of Texas A&M, then out-legs quarterbacks Shawn Moore of Virginia and David Klingler of Houston down the stretch.

The TV repairman:If the wire services, those guardians of the college football rankings, had any flair for the absurd, they'd wait about a week before conducting the polls to name the national champion.Imagine the arguments, not to mention the insurrection in the streets and the food fights in campus dining halls.As bowl days go, yesterday's record glut of eight games, beginning at noon and stretching past midnight, was fairly easy to negotiate. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the Tommy Lasorda Slim Fast ads, which easily numbered in the hundreds.

Is this any way to start a football season? By the numbers, on opening day in the NFL:Four more quarterbacks went down with injury, along with the league's all-time leading receiver.Nine games were decided by an average of 21.3 points.Six defensive players scored touchdowns.And seven teams couldn't make it through August before calamity struck.Forget the Seattle Seahawks' humiliating loss to the New York Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles' futile performance against the New York Giants. The team that took the biggest hit in Week 1 was the San Francisco 49ers, whose 13-6 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was overshadowed by the loss of All-Pro receiver Jerry Rice.

Fans who didn't stay up for the end of Saturday night's Brigham Young-San Diego State game are probably sorry.The game, which was played in San Diego and ended around 3 a.m. EST yesterday, was a 52-52 tie that gave Brigham Young (7-3-1, 6-0-1) at least a share of its 14th Western Athletic Conference title in the past 20 years.But there was more. So much more.* The Cougars trailed by 45-17 with five minutes to play in the third quarter. They scored their final touchdown on a 5-yard run by Jamal Willis with 30 seconds to play.

COLLEGE PARK -- John Kaleo always has been too short to play quarterback. At least that's what his critics suggest.Major-college scouts ignored him despite an outstanding senior season at Bowie High nearly three years ago. And a lot of Division I-A scouts didn't come around the Montgomery College-Rockville campus last season, when Kaleo was named Junior College Player of the Year.So as Kaleo finished his first spring practice with the University of Maryland, guess what he still is hearing?

St. Louis (3-0) at Detroit (0-2) Time: 9 p.m., chs. 2, 7. Line: Rams by 14. Ken Murray's outlook: Lions QB Ty Detmer will have to protect the ball better than his last outing (seven interceptions) or this game will get ugly very quickly. Coming off a bye, the Lions have had time to regroup, but it won't matter. They can't run the ball or stop the run. And they certainly can't match the Rams' explosive offense. St. Louis' No. 2-ranked offense throttled a very good Miami defense last week; it could put up gaudy numbers this week.
