If anything happens to Lorenzo White in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day, Michigan State has a sort of secret weapon--Blake Ezor--to throw at USC. And if Ezor were to come through the way Eric Ball did for UCLA and the injured Gaston Green two years ago against Iowa, Michigan State fans can thank Art Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The saga of Blake Ezor becoming a Spartan began in the '70s when the Steelers won four Super Bowls.

Speedy flanker Tim Brown harbored high ambitions against Michigan State and did even better than he hoped. "We didn't expect to get two punt returns; we were only looking to get one," said Brown, who returned two punts for touchdowns for No. 9-ranked Notre Dame in a 31-8 victory over No. 17 Michigan State Saturday night. Brown's first-quarter returns and 275 all-purpose yards overwhelmed Spartan defenders.

Lorenzo White, twice an All-American and the greatest running back in Michigan State history, wasn't even on the field when the game was tied and the Rose Bowl was on the line. After carrying the ball 35 times in the first 3 1/2 quarters, White was on the sideline watching as Blake Ezor carried the ball 6 straight times to set up Michigan State's winning field goal in its 20-17 win Friday over USC.

The legend grows. During the recent Golf Digest Collegiate Invitational on the Tournament Players Course at the Woodlands, just north of Houston, Arizona State's Phil Mickelson, who has been likened to the young Jack Nicklaus, asked for a free drop when his drive landed in what he considered casual water. Archrival Manny Zerman of Arizona, his playing partner that day, refused to grant the request.

Michigan State is a tough enough opponent for a team playing its best football. In Monday's Aloha Bowl, Hawaii learned the hard way it's impossible to stay with the Spartans when you make mistakes. The 25th-ranked Rainbows (9-3-1) committed eight turnovers and were outmuscled by No. 22 Michigan State (8-4), 33-13.

Northwestern came oh-so-close to upsetting bowl-bound Illinois Saturday at Champaign, Ill., but Illini linebacker Darrick Brownlow recovered a fumbled pass completion near the goal line in the closing seconds to preserve a 14-9 Big Ten victory. Illinois scored 2 first-quarter touchdowns, but its offense slumped as Northwestern rallied behind 3 field goals by Ira Adler. The Wildcats, however, fell short in an effort to score a game-winning touchdown.
