This is the week the " Notre Dame Killer" comes to life. Anthony Davis, on a late fall Saturday 38 years ago, led USC to a rout over the Fighting Irish with six touchdowns. Two years later, after the Irish took a 24-0 lead late in the first half, he ran for four more touchdowns in what became known as "The Comeback. " Davis is 58 now, but his achievements are never far from his thoughts. "Obviously, I'm someone of interest . . . I'm a name," says Davis, who now works as a part-time security guard and lives in his mother's Sylmar apartment.

But how much does he dislike the Fighting Irish? Well, Anaheim was playing Kennedy, also nicknamed the Fighting Irish, during a nonleague game. Before the game, the Kennedy band played the Notre Dame fight song. "I looked over at Allen and he had his hands over his ears," Colonist Coach Todd Borowski said.
