TV/Radio: MSG-ESPN Regional; WENJ-AM (1450), WOR-AM (710). Records: Norfolk State, 1-0; Rutgers, 2-0. The buzz: Norfolk State of the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) is playing its first Division I-A opponent since starting football 10 years ago, and coach Pete Adrian raised some eyebrows by commenting that he would rather be playing Michigan than Rutgers. . . . As many eyes may be on the stands today as on the field. In last week's win over Navy, a handful of Rutgers fans booed and shouted vulgarities at the Mids, forcing athletic director Bob Mulcahy and president Richard McCormick to issue public apologies to the Naval Academy.

Three years ago, Ralph Tally was an employee of the Golden Nugget Casino/ Hotel in Atlantic City, and he rubbed elbows with the superstars of the entertainment world. "I got a chance to see Bill Cosby, Diahann Carroll and Flip Wilson," Tally said. "I was just a food runner. My job was to stock all the food in the kitchen. I also got a chance to arrange some of the food trays. It wasn't a great job. I didn't want to stay there the rest of my life. " These days, Tally is also a star.

Youth, at times, has a way of speeding the aging process. Just ask St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli, whose freshmen-dominated lineup finally hit the win column Saturday at Hagan Arena in the Hawks' third game of the season. "It was a different experience to get a win, and now we have to get better," Martelli said after the Hawks beat Norfolk State, 70-65, in an opening-round game of the Philly Hoop Classic. It was the first meeting between the two schools. It hasn't taken this long for St. Joseph's to celebrate since the 1998-99 season, which also saw an 0-2 start.

The Penn women's team may have hit the court at the Palestra just 12 hours after getting home from Florida, but they showed no sign of fatigue on Sunday afternoon, leading from the start in a 79-49 demolition of Norfolk State to notch their seventh straight win. After a dramatic, 67-66 win over Miami on New Year's Day, the Quakers were stranded in South Florida by bad weather in the Northeast. The team finally had to take a bus to Fort Myers, Fla., then fly into Atlantic City and take another bus to West Philadelphia - arriving early Sunday morning, nearly two days after their scheduled return.

Dancing defensemen surrounded linebacker Joe Keating on the Wildcats' sideline yesterday, celebrating their 42-0 victory over Norfolk State. Keating motionlessly inspected his dance teachers, then shook off his modesty with a wiggle of his bulky shoulders. "They told me my dance moves needed some work," said the 6-foot-2, 230-pound junior from Lansdale. "They're not so good. " Luckily for Keating's fellow dancing fools, he is quite skilled at the Spartans Stomp - a tap dance he performed on Norfolk State's offense yesterday at Villanova Stadium.

The nightly parade of upsets in college basketball adds more uncertainty for anyone trying to predict a national champion. But what could be more certain this year is the chance that a No. 16 seed will defeat a No. 1 seed. "I think this is the year that a 16 could possibly beat a 1 for the first time," Louisville coach Rick Pitino said Thursday. "I don't think it will happen but I think it's more possible than in other years. " Since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, the 16th seed is 0-112 against No. 1. Syracuse had a close call last year against UNC-Asheville before winning, 72-65.
