Running Away from The Packs

Hear the footsteps of November. Fleet receiver Tim Brown of Notre Dame sped closer to the Heisman Trophy.

Ferdinand held off Alysheba down the stretch at the Breeders' Cup to win a duel of Derby champs. On the streets of New York, Ibrahim Hussein of Kenya and Britain's Priscilla Welch strode to marathon titles.

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs opened the NBA season by signing 7'1" Ensign David Robinson to a $26 million contract, even though he can't play for them until 1989. Back on the gridiron, No. 1 Oklahoma wrapped up an 11-0 year, as did surprising Syracuse.
