It was Nov. 28, 1964, and it was easy to cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish came to the Coliseum with a 9-0 record, a No. 1 national ranking and a Heisman Trophy winner with a rags-to-riches story. It was to be the cherry on top of the hot fudge sundae, a final time to shake down the thunder. Instead, it turned into a game for the ages, a legendary classic between schools that will meet in football Saturday for the 84th time. The shocking and controversial defeat for the Irish happened 48 years ago and remains etched in the minds of thousands of fans, both Irish and Trojans.

Prince is expected to be the headline performer during halftime of Super Bowl XLI on Feb. 4 at Dolphin Stadium in South Florida, according to the folks at Sportsbybrooks.com. It will be CBS' first broadcast of the NFL's championship game since Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" in 2004, when the FCC responded to the singer's bared breast with $550,000 in fines.

Think the Coliseum took a big hit last Jan. 17? You should have felt the old gray lady rockin' & rollin' late on the afternoon of Nov. 28, 1964. The aftershocks even rattled the golden dome in South Bend, Ind. On that day, USC registered one of its best remembered football victories, a 20-17 shocker over a Notre Dame team that was 9-0 . . . and 1 minute 33 seconds away from a national championship.

Greg Willig, St. Paul High School's quarterback, had only one thought at that moment in 1987: heads or tails. He was being introduced to the Bishop Amat captains when . . . WHAM-O . "This little guy from Bishop Amat hit me," said Willig, who will be a senior this fall at Rice. "There were no words, he just threw a punch.
