THE TEAMS: Oregon State (7-5) and New Mexico (8-4) have a powerful running back. OSU coach Mike Riley on DonTrell Moore, who led the Mountain West Conference with 1,438 yards and 19 TDs: 'He's a difference-maker. We will have two of the best running backs in the country going against each other with him and Steven (Jackson).' Moore ranks 11th and Jackson 12th on the NCAA rushing list. Jackson carried for a Pac-10-best 1,396 yards and 15 TDs, but he will fall short of the school-record 1,690 yards he set a year ago. He needs 164 yards to surpass Ken Simonton's top season (1,559 in 2000) and have the two best marks in school history.
