Tennessee Titans running back LenDale White famously stomped a Terrible Towel into the ground last season. This season, the Pittsburgh Steelers will get a chance to reply. The Steelers will play host to the Titans on Thursday Sept. 10 in the 2009 kickoff opener, the NFL announced Monday, pitting the defending Super Bowl champions and the team that finished the 2008 regular season with a league-best 13-3 record.

John Robinson saw it on a press box television in Alabama. Anthony Davis watched from a pizza parlor in Orange County. And Marcus Allen paced the sideline at Sun Devil Stadium as it unfolded only a few yards away. When USC put the ball in the hands of running backs Reggie Bush and LenDale White in the second half against Arizona State, it was that '70s show all over again. "My God," Robinson recalled thinking. "They've gone back to our era!"

USC running back LenDale White and cornerback Eric Wright had arthroscopic surgery this week, but both said Friday that they hoped to be ready for spring practice. White, the Trojans' leading rusher the last two seasons, had an arthroscopic procedure done on his left ankle Thursday. "They just cleaned it out," White said after the Trojans were honored before an estimated crowd of 7,000 during a campus celebration. "It should be fine."

USC running back LenDale White, tight end Dominique Byrd and defensive lineman Frostee Rucker, who missed spring practice to focus on academic issues, are expected to be eligible in the fall, Coach Pete Carroll said Friday. White, Rucker and Byrd passed their classes during the spring semester and are attending summer session classes, which began last Monday. "They all took care of business and did what they had to do," Carroll said.

If USC wins the Orange Bowl, it will be on an ankle and a prayer. That became official Sunday when LenDale White said that his sprained right ankle had been healed by treatment that was, well, heavenly. "A miracle," he said. It will be a miracle if any Oklahoma players believe it, but they will have to tackle it, so they might want to grab a pew and pay attention. The event occurred Thursday in the swimming pool at the team hotel.

NO. 1 USC (11-0, 7-0) at UCLA (6-4, 4-3) Today, 1:30 p.m., Rose Bowl TV: Channel 7. Radio: KMPC (1540),XTRA (690/1150), KSPA (1510), KVEN (1450). WHEN USC HAS THE BALL The Bruins have had trouble stopping the run all season, so don't be surprised to see the Trojans turn to running backs LenDale White and Reggie Bush early and often. If USC is able to move the ball on the ground, quarterback Matt Leinart will be dangerous with play-action passes.
