OFFENSE: Pittsburgh's Tony Dorsett was at his best in a 34-20 upset of Notre Dame, rushing for 303 yards (the most ever by a Panther) and a touchdown in 23 carries, catching three passes for 71 yards and another TD.

DEFENSE: A special safety blitz, featuring Weak Safety Al Burleson, was vital in Washington's 8-7 upset of suddenly inept USC. Burleson made 14 tackles and was responsible for several bad center snaps and a couple of fumbles.
