EVEN THE youngest head coach in the country knows not to expect the conventional from Air Force. After all, the Falcons had already scored three fourth-down touchdowns, including the one that had just tied the Military Bowl with 52 seconds to play. So 32-year-old Matt Campbell, leading Toledo for the first time, wasn't surprised when Air Force lined up to kick the extra point and then ran a fake, going for two to win the game instead of sending it to overtime. The Rockets were ready.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Buckeyes' 90 years of in-state domination almost ended on a single play.

The Rockets (1-1) drove from their own 28 and were 17 yards away from becoming the first in-state team to beat the Buckeyes since 1921.

"I like offense better than defense," Collins said.

Casual fans might assume Temple will have what amounts to a bye week on Saturday. In their minds, facing a 1-3 Toledo is probably much easier than the Owls' previous two games against Bowl Championship Series opponents Penn State and Maryland. But . . . "We got our work cut out for us," Temple coach Steve Addazio said of Saturday's noon Mid-American Conference matchup at Lincoln Financial Field. He added that, defensively, the Rockets (1-3) remind him of Penn State.

You couldn't drink it. You couldn't bathe in it. You couldn't wash dishes in it. A bloom of toxin-producing, blue-green algae in Lake Erie had rendered the water unsafe and forced Toledo, Ohio, to shut down its system for several days. Could it happen here? Exceedingly unlikely, Philadelphia-area water officials say. They do see the same algae in local waters, but the difference is, it doesn't grow out of control here or, for reasons unknown, produce the same toxins. But officials here have plenty of other types of algae to contend with, albeit mostly ones that affect taste and odor and clog filters, rather than harm people.

SUCCESS IS one thing. Handling it is another. Just one more part of the process. Last September, after losing a tough one to Penn State, Temple won by 31 at Maryland. It made a statement at the time, even though the Terps would finish 2-10. The next week the Owls lost at home by 23 against Toledo. That said something as well. You know what they say about history. Last week, these Owls (2-2, 1-0) won their first Big East game since being asked to leave the conference 8 years ago. Now they go to Connecticut (3-3, 0-1)

A YEAR AGO, this was the game that mostly put Temple out there. The 2-1 Owls, a week after almost beating Penn State at the Linc, went to 1-1 Maryland as a nine-point underdog and won, 38-7. It didn't matter too much that they then lost at home to Toledo by 23. Or that the Terps would only win once more. It was still a win by a MAC team on the road against a BCS/ACC opponent. Now, the Owls are in the Big East. And, coming off another opening blowout win over FCS Villanova, they're getting a Maryland team in South Philly on Saturday that has two new coordinators, is playing an inordinate amount of true freshmen and just beat FCS William & Mary, 7-6. Not shockingly, the Owls are favored by 10. So how do they deal with that?

DAVID TOLEDO STAYED in a jail cell Thursday as lawyers clashed in court over whether the accused Mayfair tire-slasher's bail should be reduced from $270,000 to $26,000. His wife, Yvonne, called him "my wonderful husband. " His mother, Dorothy, 70, said he is a good son who calls her twice a day. Defense attorney William J. Brennan said the higher bail was "tantamount to ransom" and was "off the hook. " He said Toledo, 44, had no serious prior criminal record but did have strong family support in the courtroom and ties to his community.

Dance humor is rare, and flamenco humor is nearly nonexistent. But Rosario Toledo, a Spanish dancer/choreographer from Seville, is a superb comedian, while equally capable of creating serious, innovative flamenco compositions. The centerpiece of the ongoing Philadelphia Flamenco Festival is a two-part performance showcasing Toledo's impressive range. Cómplices (Allies) is a new work created for Pasión y Arte, Philadelphia's all-female flamenco troupe, founded and directed by Elba Hevia y Vaca.
