Besana was sacked 71 times last season, which set a pro football record. A crowd of 29,176 watched the game. Eleven months ago, 45,167 turned out to see Oakland beat Arizona 24-0 here in the USFL's inaugural season.

OKLAHOMA 7, Pittsburgh 3 (11638) - Stymied for three quarters by miscues and miserable weather, Oklahoma used a 12-yard pass play from Doug Williams to Derek Hughes for the win. Three first-half Outlaw drives were halted by fumbles. The Maulers' Mike Rozier, making his pro debut after winning the Heisman Trophy, rushed 16 times for 27 yards.

On the eve of its second season, the USFL is talking about further expansion and the possibility of going head-to-head with the NFL. The league, which lost $30 million last year, added six teams, and Commissioner Chet Simmons told a sports symposium that the league could expand again as early as next season. "We may lose some teams to attrition but we are studying expansion," said Simmons, listing both Indianapolis and Seattle as "early targets." Other cities being considered are New York, Dallas, Cleveland, Kansas City and Southern Florida. Simmons said the league also is studying the feasibility of switching its schedule from spring to fall, a move that would place it on a collision course with the established NFL. Indianapolis, which is courting the NFL for a team, recently completed an $80-rnillion, 63,000-seat domed stadium. The USFL has talked to Seattle officials concerning the availability of the Kingdome, the domed, 65,000-seat home of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks.

Houston 35, SAN ANTONIO 7 (10023) - QB Jim Kelly scrambled for two TDs and passed for another as the Gamblers won in a contest delayed 47 minutes late in the third by a stadium power failure. Houston coach Jack Pardee got a little worried. He was even more distracted when his players went to their locker room to wait out the power failure and found the door padlocked shut. They broke in. By that time, most of the 10,023 fans had left.

Commissioner Chet Simmons announced that the league's next stage of expansion will bring a second professional football team to Miami as early as 1985. Simmons joined a handful of league and city officials in a press conference at the Orange Bowl to announce the plans for the new team. But very few details were made public because the application must be approved by the City Commission. The announcement came on the heels of another that the Miami Dolphins plan to move from the Orange Bowl to a proposed new stadium in northern Dade County.

The Bandits spotted Jacksonville a pair of early first-period TDs, set up by interceptions of Tampa QB John Reaves, but the Bulls put themselves in a hole by missing both extra point attempts, one a kick, one a pass.
