THE SANDERS FILE
Oklahoma State's Barry Sanders ran for 293 yards and four TDs in a 49-28 win over Iowa State. Sanders's 35 TDs and 2,897 all-purpose yards are NCAA single-season records, and his 2,296 rushing yards are 46 shy of Marcus Allen's mark.

DEFENSE
Junior Bob Paschall, a middle guard at Columbia, had a school-record 14 solo tackles, was in on two sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered one as the Lions beat Brown 31-13 and won two games in a season for the first time since 1978.

OFFENSE
Lehigh quarterback Jim Harris, a senior, completed 28 of 46 passes—including 17 of his first 18—for 430 yards and two TDs in a wild 52-45 loss to Lafayette. Harris's 372 yards in the first half were a yard short of a Division I record.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Michigan State's John Langeloh, a sophomore, kicked field goals of 47, 31, 27, 49 and 30 yards and accounted for half of the Gator Bowl-bound Spartans' 36 points in a shutout of Wisconsin. The five field goals established a school record.
