half running game and Iowa held on in

experience and talent to finally end its
long drought against Iowa, which had
been favored by only 2 1/2 points and
was unimpressive in a season-opening
26-25 victory over Tulsa.

son since 1983, but Illinois hasn't been
the reason, losing five straight at Co-

take a 21-7 lead in the second quarter.

Southern Cal, with just 11 yards
rushing in the first half, scored after
Mike Salmon's 30-yard interception
return to the Penn State 1 in the second

free after being trapped at the Lions 25
and scored on a 30-yard pass from
Johnson, narrowing the score to 21-14.

play of Southern Cal's final drive and
setup the final score with a20-yardpass
