Football returned to Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tenn., for the first time since 1949 and the results were all too familiar.

Cumberland was the victim of football's most ignominious loss, a 222-0 skunking at the hands of Georgia Tech in 1916. Campbellsville defeated Cumberland Saturday, 34-0. But school president Thomas Mills still was ecstatic as he watched the overflow crowd of 4,123 at Kirk Field.

"It's a dream. The support we've gotten all along from the community and today's turnout is fantastic," he said. "People said you can't do it on a non-scholarship basis, but I guarantee you -- we're playing some football."


Quarterbacks Ty Detmer of Brigham Young and Shawn Moore of Virginia seem to be front-runners for the Heisman Trophy.

BYU, which appeared in trouble after falling behind Washington State by 15 points after three quarters at home, saw Detmer throw three of his five touchdown passes during a 36-point fourth period in a 50-36 win.

In Charlottesville, as 11th-ranked Virginia enjoyed a 56-14 thrashing of Navy, the Moore-led offense amassed 664 yards. Moore threw four touchdown passes and ran for two before leaving in the third period. He was 13 of 22 for 250 yards and rushed for 38 yards, becoming the Cavaliers' all-time leader in total offense with 6,081 yards.

Other weekend stars: Miami's Craig Erickson passed for 467 yards and four scores and ran for another as the Hurricanes crushed California, 52-24. And Will White of Florida intercepted three passes in the Gators' 17-13 win over Alabama, now 0-2 under Coach Gene Stallings. The Crimson Tide has lost four straight dating to last season, its longest slide since 1956.

Florida State buried Georgia Southern, 48-6. The third-ranked Seminoles have won 12 straight, the longest winning streak in Division I.
