At Pullman, Wash., last Saturday afternoon, USC's football team seemed in firm control of a game it needed to win to stay in the Rose Bowl race. The Trojans were ahead, 13-3, as the fourth quarter began, and Washington State's offense had the ball at USC's 33-yard line after a Cougar interception. Then, USC experienced a rare breakdown. Senior Jeff Kopp, considered one of the best linebackers in the Pacific 10 Conference, muffed a play that gave the Cougars six points.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have won without a $31-million quarterback, a Pro Bowl left tackle and four defensive starters. Kansas City would do well to follow their example. Despite the missing players, the Jaguars had a team-record six sacks and forced Kansas City backup quarterback Rich Gannon into five turnovers Sunday in a 24-10 victory that kept them in first place in the AFC Central.

Shawn Walters, USC's leading rusher last season, put a chill on the Trojans' afternoon practice Thursday when he went down with a back injury. The 225-pound sophomore tailback was tackled by linebacker Jeff Kopp, who was holding onto Walters' left leg when he was hit a split second later by another linebacker, Errol Small. Walters lay on his back for six minutes while trainers and team physician Michael Apuzzo examined him. He was put on a stretcher, immobilized and taken off on a golf cart.
