After botching the exchange between center and quarterback only once last season, USC has fumbled the snap seven times in its last two games. Six times, the center was sophomore Titus Tuiasosopo, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound reserve who probably would be moved into the starting lineup ahead of redshirt freshman David Apolskis if he could master the fundamental requirement of the position. "His blocking, his leadership, his toughness have been excellent," Coach Larry Smith said.

A few days ago, Barbara Paull was driving with her best friend, Stephanie Tourikian, and as they were crossing the intersection of Corbin Avenue and Roscoe Boulevard in Northridge, another car broadsided their car, killing both instantly. The driver, who has been charged with drunk driving, survived the accident. Barbara Paull was a neighbor of mine, someone I've known since she was a little girl toddling around with my kids on our front lawn. Through the years I watched Barbara mature into a young lady.

Washington Coach Don James feared the Huskies might lose their edge as police searched Martin Stadium for explosives before the game. He needn't have fretted. Quarterback Mark Brunell and tailback Beno Bryant led No. 10 Washington to a 55-10 rout of Washington State in a Pacific 10 game Saturday that started a half hour late because of the scare. "We tried not to let them burn off nervous energy," James said. "It was just a matter of getting the problem solved."

El Modena may have been the best .300 team in the Southern Section playoffs, where 12 teams with sub-.500 records had berths. Expectations from a 3-6-1 team aside, El Modena looked better than its record against the Paramount Pirates, but that was not enough for the Vangards, who dropped a 13-3 first-round game Friday night in front of 3,500. Paramount, the defending division CIF champion, finished first in the San Gabriel League and was ranked 13th in the Times' poll.
