OFFENSE: Temple running back Todd McNair, a junior, paced the Owls to a 24-21 upset of Pitt by gaining 213 yards in 41 carries against the nation's top-ranked rushing defense, which had allowed only 32 yards in its two season-opening victories.

DEFENSE: Ole Miss linebacker Jeff Herrod had 23 tackles in a 47-10 triumph over Arkansas State, the Rebels' first in a season that had figured to get off to a much better start. It was his 18th straight game with 10 or more, and he forced a fumble.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Notre Dame's Mr. Do Everything, Tim Brown, returned punts for touchdowns of 71 and 66 yards two minutes apart in the first quarter and sprinted 57 yards with two kickoffs in the Irish's surprisingly easy 31-8 win over Michigan State.
