All in all, it was a streaky week. From Columbia we head north to Colby, a Division III school in Waterville, Maine, that had lost 15 times in a row and had dropped 22 straight in the New England Small College Athletic Conference until Saturday's 34-33 win over Tufts. All the players and fans walked to the Roberts Union to ring the 150-year-old Revere bell that's always sounded after a victory....

The ramblin' wreck that's Georgia Tech extended its losing streak against Division I-A teams to 15 with a 13-8 loss at Maryland....

Clemson extended its record against Virginia to 28-0 with a shaky 10-7 win....

Wyoming won its 15th straight regular-season game by thumping San Diego State 55-27 behind tailback Dabby Dawson's 225 yards on only 16 carries....

Augustana (Ill.) College, which hadn't lost a regular-season game since October 18, 1980, saw its victory streak end at 70 when halfback Bill Nolan's one-yard dive gave Carroll College of Waukesha, Wis., a 24-21 victory....
