The play of USC flanker Curtis Conway has led to speculation that he will skip his senior year and be available for the NFL draft next spring. "Curtis and I talked about that a couple weeks ago," USC Coach Larry Smith said. "After the season is over, he and I are going to sit down, and he'll decide what's best for Curtis Conway." Conway is second in the Pacific 10 Conference with an average of 173 all-purpose yards, but Smith would like him to get the ball more often.

Grady Benton completed his first eight passes and threw for a touchdown, and Eric Guliford scored on an 89-yard punt return as Arizona State beat California, 28-12, in a Pacific 10 game Saturday night. The Sun Devils, 5-5 overall and 3-4 in the conference, ended a two-game skid while handing Cal (4-6, 2-5) its second consecutive loss. The game was the first for Arizona State Coach Bruce Snyder against Cal, the school he left after its Citrus Bowl victory over Clemson last January.

USC is no longer last in the Pacific 10 in rushing. After a season-high 188 yards during a 31-21 victory over Washington State last Saturday, the Trojans are eighth, ahead of UCLA and Stanford. But USC, averaging only 127.2 yards on the ground, still has games to play against Arizona State, Stanford, Arizona, UCLA and Notre Dame, all of which rank among the nation's top 15 in rushing defense or total defense.

Arizona State offset the inexperience of quarterback Grady Benton with a ground attack worth 174 yards and a punishing defense Saturday night to defeat Louisville, 19-0, in the first football meeting of the schools. The Sun Devils (1-1) sacked Jeff Brohm of the Cardinals 10 times, including 3 1/2 by freshman rover Harlen Rashada, who was to have been redshirted until injuries forced Coach Bruce Snyder to use him in the second half.
