BERKELEY -- USC knew Stanford was looming, across the bay in Palo Alto and on the schedule next week at the Coliseum. But the Trojans did not let their minds wander. On Saturday, surging USC routed California, 62-28, at Memorial Stadium with an electrifying display on offense and special teams. Nelson Agholor's breakaway speed was in full effect. Javorius Allen showed his performance a week ago was no fluke. And Josh Shaw continued to demonstrate a knack for being in the right place at the right time.

Dick Butkus is ducking me. Won't return my calls, my e-mails. Butkus. The name's Lithuanian, you know - a verb, a proper noun, an act of war. You don't say it, you bark it. Like a big, flatulent truck backfiring up a hill. "But-cuss," the man himself says on his answering machine. One word, But-cuss, then a beeeeep, as if he's verbally rung your bell. He was always, even when things were going very well, frosted about mundane things, no patience with life's little inanities, which is how he probably now regards me. Back in the '60s, Butkus invented the concussion.

"The Square" bears witness to history in an articulate, thoughtful and intensely dramatic way. A compelling inside look at the cascading series of revolutions and counter-revolutions that have shaken Egypt since the beginning of 2011, it wouldn't exist except for the passion and determination of filmmaker Jehane Noujaim. An accomplished documentary director whose credits include "Control Room" and "Startup.com," Noujaim was raised in Egypt and the United States, and her family lives 10 minutes from Cairo's Tahrir Square, the film's namesake.

The 150-pound black bear that evaded police in Granada Hills for roughly 12 hours Tuesday before its capture was able to do so despite being hit with four tranquilizer darts, a state wildlife official said. The bear, which scurried from a school, across several yards and into a golf course Tuesday morning, was under brief observation before being released deep into Los Padres National Forest on Wednesday, said Andrew Hughan, a spokesman for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

A black bear spotted in a tree at a Granada Hills school Tuesday barreled from yard to yard, took a breather on the the front steps of a church, and scurried onto a golf course past onlookers as it evaded capture. The bear's odyssey began about 7 a.m. after it was spotted at the North Valley Charter Academy campus on Rinaldi Street. The bear climbed a tree at the rear of the campus, where it remained as students were escorted inside the school. The chase began after a low-flying helicopter spooked the bear out of the tree.
