It was Friday night, Nov. 10, and the little big man of Notre Dame football, the one with David's body and Goliath's heart, was facing one of his toughest opponents. Joey Getherall straightened himself up to his full 5 feet 7, set his jaw and realized that his emotions were tackling him. "The whole thing had me in tears, and that was before I even started to speak," Getherall said.

Joey Getherall might not be the size of Texas--Rhode Island is more like it--but he sure played like it during the California-Texas Shrine football game Saturday at Cal State Fullerton. Getherall, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound receiver from La Puente Bishop Amat, caught a touchdown pass and punished Texas with several big punt returns during the second quarter to lead California to a 31-6 victory in front an estimated crowd of 7,000.

A season after scoring on a touchdown and two-point conversion in the final minutes to send the Notre Dame game to overtime, Delon Washington will start for USC at tailback today. Washington had fallen to third string after two poor games this season as the starter, but with freshman Malaefou MacKenzie recovering from a sprained shoulder (he's available to play) and LaVale Woods already out because of an ankle injury, USC announced the move Friday.

They stand half a field apart, but punters and punt returners can feel as if they are going head-to-head. "If the guy breaks a long return," USC punter Mike MacGillivray said, "I take it personally." MacGillivray and the Trojans' shaky punt coverage team has suffered that fate often this season and things won't get easier Saturday when No. 11 Notre Dame comes to the Coliseum.

The biggest obstacle Oregon State may face in the New Year's Day Fiesta Bowl is the same obstacle most teams face when playing Notre Dame. It's a cliche, but it is always there: tradition. When the Irish take on the higher-ranked, favored-by-three-points Beavers in Tempe, Ariz., they will be playing in their 33rd bowl game, and their 27th on New Year's Day (or later). The Beavers will be playing in their sixth bowl game, and their fourth on New Year's Day.
