Here I am, wondering why I'm at this pig roast, USC about to slaughter the worst team in the nation, and it's not Stanford, so nothing can go wrong. It's a waste-of-time game, and I'm here only to write about some USC fan who takes delight in being known as "syco." That's when I spot Anthony Davis. Davis is seated at a small table in the middle of tailgaters about 40 yards from Tommy Trojan. He looks as if he's still wearing his Halloween costume, a black and silver suit with a tie and a No.

Something about having a week off agrees with Ryan Killeen. By his own admission, the USC kicker has endured a rough season, making only nine of 18 field-goal attempts. His best game, a three-for-three outing against California, followed a bye week. The same thing happened against Notre Dame on Saturday, the Trojans coming off a bye and Killeen making both his attempts. "I had a lot of time to prepare and get mentally strong," he said. "I had visions of knocking them through all week long."

It's one of the best-remembered Times sports headlines of the 1970s: "DAVIS! DAVIS! DAVIS! DAVIS! DAVIS! DAVIS!" What else could be said of a 185-pound San Fernando comet named Anthony Davis after his historic six-touchdown afternoon in a 45-23 USC victory over Notre Dame? Retired Times sports editor Paul Zimmerman was moved to say that day: "I consider this one of the most historic days in college football history.

Reggie White's death provided the wake-up call, Kirby Puckett's the confirmation. Former USC running back Anthony Davis said last month that because of sleep- and weight-related health problems similar to those of White, a pro football Hall of Famer who died in 2004 at 43, he decided last year to undergo gastric bypass surgery. The procedure is scheduled for today at a hospital in La Jolla and will be shown live on the Internet.

Steve Nash finally returned to the Lakers' lineup Tuesday in a loss to the Timberwolves in Minneapolis. After sitting out a victory over the Cavaliers in Cleveland the following night, Nash celebrated his 40th birthday with a season-high 19 points in a win over the 76ers in Philadelphia. "To be able to just be back out there for two games -- yeah, I'm rusty, I'm not quite in game shape yet -- but to be moving freely and be able to do things you're accustomed to doing out there, it just makes the game a lot more fun," Nash said after practice Saturday.
